    Then why did a Deep Southern White Female perceive Newt to have put Juan Williams "In His Place?"

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq3UU-FyJEc]Newt employs the old Southern Strategy - YouTube[/ame]

    What other than blatant racism could be derived from that statement?

    Note: Newt glibly, smugly and smarmingly accepted her thanks. So he KNOWS what he's doing.

    Your thoughts.

    She is saying he put a news reporter in his place. You think that's racist?

    No wonder our nation is messed up.

    And yet, no one else is shocked. Because there wasnt anything racist about what Newt said.

    I am curious. What is this "place" the woman was referring to? Can anyone answer that?

    Forget the fact that he chastised blacks about food stamps even though more whites are on food stamps. Forget he called the black President the food stamp president even though more people were put on food stamps by Bush.

    Forget the fact that you present no facts. As of January of 2009, the number of people on food stamps was at its highest under George W. Bush at 32 million. Compare that to October 2011, where 46.2 million people are on food stamps, a 44% increase from January, 2009. -- Sources: USDA and Daily Jobs Update

    You miss the whole point of the thread.

    Why did that Deep Southern White Female PERCEIVE it to be that Newt "Put Juan Williams in his place?"

    Do you know what dog-whistle politics and rhetoric is?
