    Seriously,do people really get their News information from this GE/NBC mess? Those people over there really have lost it. Bizarre stuff for sure. :cuckoo:


    MSNBC daytime anchor Thomas Roberts seizes on Mitt Romney's use of the phrase "Keep America America." The network claims the phrase plays homage to the Ku Klux Klan slogan of "Keep America American." According to left-leaning news outlets, the "Keep America American" expression was apparently used by the KKK in the early 1900s.

    Somehow the folks at MSNBC believe Mitt Romney is acknowledging his Klan roots by using a similar phrase in his 2012 campaign for the presidency.


    UPDATE: On tonight's edition of MSNBC's "Hardball," host Chris Matthews apologized for the "irresponsible" and "incendiary" attack on Mitt Romney.

    Sounds like something the Know Nothings would have said....but the KKK said it too. That's a fact....not made up. So, why apologize?

    Naw.

    See I never raided a company, fired everyone, then offered to hire the young workers back at less pay..and no benefits.

    Then..you'd be right. Then..I would be a "dickhead'. But I didn't do that.

    Romney did.

    And he's a dickhead.

    Pride? A desire to perpetuate a lie? Propaganda? Irrational hatred?

    Im sure we could come up with some if we really wanted to. But why try?

    The KKK didn't say that? Because that's the only way it would be "a lie", Avatar.
