Ron Paul Took in a Racially Discriminated Pregnant Couple in 1972- The Compassion of Ron Paul

James Williams an African American of Matagorda County, Texas tells a touching true story that brought a tear to my eye. And I'm not even a crier. In 1972, his wife had a pregnancy complication. No doctor would care for their bi-racial child. It even ended up with one of the hospital nurses calling the police on James.
Any story about racial prejudice and rising from it is great to hear

Not only did Dr. Ron Paul take his wife in when no one else would to deliver their baby, Williams never received a hospital bill for the delivery.

Take a look



The Compassion of Dr. Ron Paul

Brent Bozell: Obama Looks like a "A Skinny, Ghetto Crackhead"



Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center appeared on Hannity to discuss the Liberal "Media Mash".

In responding to Chris Mathews comments that Newt Gingrich "looked like a car bomber", Bozell asked what would happen if Sean Hannity said Obama looked like a "A Skinny, Ghetto Crackhead".

He then quickly added that: "which by the way you might want to say that Barack Obama does" "everybody on the left would come foreword and demand he'd be fired"

Well... good thing you don't have a job as a news anchor Brent because I think you would.

 


Unless you work at Fox News with their tolerance policy for racially offensive and racist statements.

Fox News Graphics FAIL Alert- Lists Romney Twice in Poll

I was watching Fox and Friends and they had Larry Sabato UVA Political Science professor discussing Ron Paul's successful polling.
It was between 7:40 a.m - 7:50 a.m CT today when they showed a graphics poll. Romney's name was listed twice in place of what I think was suppose to be Ron Paul or Newt Gingrich's name. The graphics poll was only on the screen for two seconds, so Fox must have realized the error.

This isn't their first similar graphics fail.
I don't have the screen shot or video for this but once I obtain it I'll show it.

Someone got it.

Media Research Center: Forget Facts on Welfare Recipients and Drugs Use

The mindset of the Media Research Center (MRC) and its affiliate CNS News seem to be that it's better to believe something and never look at facts than it is to actually know the facts. They demonstrated that again by posting a Youtube video titled "Dem Lawmaker Questions Drug Tests For Unemployment". In the video, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) questioned if the lawmakers who created the drug testing provision of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2011, read the Constitution. The point the video tries to make is that the congresswomen supposedly said something outrageous. Outrageous as in what? Was something she said factually incorrect or out of touch? Only in the MRC and CNS wing of the conservative movement would you think such criticism of the program is just a bunch of liberal hocus pocus and gibberish. I wonder if they missed  Fox News' Megyn Kelly already debunked the right wing claim.

  

This is the hallmark of the crack pot way of conservative thinking. When you are a self described fiscal conservative, what does that mean? Do you use evidence based economics or what a lot on the right wing call "common sense"? When I say "common sense" I don't mean that if most scientists say the earth revolves around the sun, that's probably the science. The kind of common sense I'm referring to is put out by someone who would say "I'm not a scientist, but I see the sun around revolve around the Earth everyday." In the case of the MRC and CNS News, that's how they think on every issue. They act as if its a religious duty to  propagate (not prove) why their version of conservatism works.The propagate instead of prove because as I pointed out in a previous post, MRC is about bias and not accuracy. That is their fundamental difference between their progressive counterpart Media Matters for America. Demagoguery is one of their core principles. They demagog anyone they think is in on the "liberal media" conspiracy and attack anyone who goes after their fellow conservatives. Even if it's simply factually correcting a right wing claim they scream LIBERAL MEDIA! If your not with their team all the way, your against them
