Rachel Madcow pushed the limits for even herself on Friday’s show as she covered the National Tea Party Convention. Not only do the libtards like Madcow need some history lessons, but her extreme comments reveal the fear that the Progressives have when it comes to We The People in the grassroots. Here is the transcript from the part of her show that I am referencing (h/t Newsbusters):
“RACHEL MADDOW, HOST: But first, a couple of holy crawfish stories in today`s political news. The much-maligned national tea party convention is underway today in Nashville. This is the one that is for profit. Tickets cost over $500.
Described as “something that smells scammy” by right-wing Web site, “Red State,” the convention lost many of its sponsors and two members of Congress due to speak at the event.
Republicans Michele Bachmann and Marcia Blackburn pulled out. Sarah Palin is still due to address the confab tomorrow. She`s reportedly being paid a six-figure speaking fee to do so.
The opening speech last night was given by failed presidential candidate, ex-congressman and professional anti-immigrant, Tom Tancredo who started the event off with a bang, a big loud racist bang.

FMR. REP. TOM TANCREDO (R-CO): Mostly because I think we do not have a civics literacy test before people can vote in the country, people who could not even spell the word, “vote,” or say it in English, put a committed, socialist ideologue in the White House. The name is Barack Hussein Obama.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
MADDOW: Just for reference here, when Tom Tancredo talks about literacy tests, that`s what they used in the south to keep black people from voting before civil rights legislation and court rulings put a stop to that.
So the convention opened with a clarion call to bring back the literacy tests for voting. And as you could hear, the tea party convention crowd erupted in cheers at the suggestion, although, to be fair, it was sort of hard to tell exactly what the sounds coming from the crowd meant. They were sort of a little bit muffled by, you know, the white hoods.”
So let me understand this. It is racist for Americans and the government to expect people to be able to speak and read english and pass a civics test in order to vote? Madcow’s own comments disprove her premise that Tea Partiers wear white hoods. She refers to Tancredo as being anti-immigrant and it is obvious that he is referring to criminal invaders when he says they could not even say “vote” in English and yet she twists it into some anti-black racist rant. And Madcow forgets the history of Progressivism. A history of eugenics that thought of non-whites as lesser than and even many whites were considered not worthy of life and considered feeble minded is what defines Progressivism. Civil rights has a history within the Republican Party and conservativism.
But the three media Stooges at MSNBC can keep it up because their rhetoric will not win any to their side. We will win come November 2010 and I for one will relish watching the coverage on MSNBC as the Stooges murmur on in disbelief just as they did with the Scott Brown win.
