Now that the dust has settled after the special election in Mississippi on Tuesday, when Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith won the U.S. Senate seat vacated by ailing incumbent Thad Cochran, the press is being accused of mishandling coverage of an incident that took place the day before the vote. The problem began when a local NBC affiliate reported that several nooses and hate signs were found at the Mississippi state capitol in Jackson about 7:15 a.m.
It's sobering how much race dominates the public discourse today. But as long as we're discussing stereotypes, we should note that leftists and elites are the ones obsessed with race, not the flyover Neanderthals to whom they impute this evil. Give it a rest, eggheads. Leftists can scarcely discuss any issue without injecting this toxicity. They imagine it everywhere -- the ubiquitous boogeyman that validates their perpetual vilification of conservatives.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell oddly claimed that President Donald Trump was using a "racial dog whistle" against Mississippi Democratic Senate nominee Mike Espy as the MSNBC host discussed Trump commenting that Espy's far-left politics do not "fit in" with his strongly conservative home state.
Whenever a Republican candidate loses a big election to a Democrat, he or she is expected to bow out gracefully and quietly to allow people in the liberal media to bask in the glow of being on the winning side. However, when a member of the Grand Old Party wins the contest, those same people in the press obviously feel justified in venting their frustration by downplaying the significance of the election. That was the case on Tuesday evening in Mississippi, where Washington Post reporters Matt Viser and David Weigel did their best to undercut the victory of Republican Senator-elect Cindy Hyde-Smith over black Democrat Mike Espy by using racially charged terms throughout their article on the election.
On Tuesday's Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews demonstrated that there's no limit to how far liberals will stretch to faux-interpret coded language into the words of conservatives as he actually suggested that the use of the words "conservative values" in Mississippi are a coded reference to white supremacists in the state.
Comedian Amy Schumer has been feeling ill lately, apparently from a wicked combination of Trump Derangement Syndrome and the physical strain of being pregnant. On Tuesday, the I Feel Pretty actress posted an Instagram video of her vomiting before a big show, and despite how tasteless that was, she topped it off by sending a hateful message to “crackhead” Mississippi Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and her “Confederate ass campaign.”
Morning Joe regular and professor Eddie Glaude Jr. calls Mississippi Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who yesterday won re-election, the "last breath of the inheritors of the plantation class." Glaude also claims that Mississippi could change if poor people "acted in their interests."
It’s rare for CNN liberal, former Republican, and turncoat Max Boot to be challenged as a global affairs analyst on the Jeffrey Zucker-led circus. So when he met his match on Monday’s CNN Tonight in the form of political commentator Scott Jennings during a discussion about the Mississippi Senate runoff, Boot was on a verge of an emotional breakdown.
Cable news and the networks have been hard at work trying to demonize Mississippi’s GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith as a callous racist who wants to bring back the KKK’s reign of terror in the South from decades past. After liberal activists added to the drama by putting nooses on the state legislature lawn, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and her liberal guests tried to blame Hyde-Smith for the stunt, bashing her as “sick” “scary” and “disgraceful” while even urging Mississippi voters in the runoff election, to vote for her Democrat opponent, Mike Espy who is embattled in his own controversy.
On CNN's New Day, Joe Johns reports that two nooses were found on the grounds of the Mississippi state capitol, and that supporters of Mike Espy, the African-American Dem candidate in today's Senate run-off race, "hope to turn anger into turnout."
The day before the Mississippi Senate runoff the liberal media trying desperately to drag Democrat Mike Espy over the finish line by dragging GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith through the mud. They’re putting all their money into smearing Hyde-Smith as a racist and the product of a racist state. During their Monday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC did everything they could to attack her, with one going so far as to attack her teenage daughter with lies about attending a segregated school.
The final race of the 2018 midterms will be held next Tuesday in Mississippi between Republican favorite Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy. The liberal media have been desperately trying to turn the tide by smearing Hyde-Smith with charges of racism over mostly innocuous things. And they’ve been turning a blind eye Espy’s ties to an African despot on trial for war crimes in the International Criminal Court, and the $750,000 Espy cashed in from him. Wednesday evening was ABC’s turn.
