Michael Eric Dyson
On Wednesday's Wolf show on CNN, in the aftermath of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's speech on race in Springfield, CNN's Nia-Malika Henderson talked up the views of Democrats in suggesting that Clinton might be better at handling race relations as President than President Barack Obama because she "can talk directly to white people in a way that President Obama might not have been able to." Her premise seemed to be that the onus for improving race relations is primarily on whites being lectured to on the issue.
On Sunday’s ABC roundtable on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, MSNBC pundit and New York Times contributor Michael Eric Dyson argued with conservative panelists, CNN’s Alex Castellanos and FNC’s Greta Van Susteren over Brexit and how it paralleled with Trump’s appeals to “white racist supremacist nationalism.” By contrast, Dyson stated, Hillary Clinton appealed to America’s “best ideals” and her “greatness” was in “her continuity.”
With all this year's preliminary political events concluded and the Republican National Convention set for July 18-21 in Cleveland, Georgetown University professor and former MSNBC analyst and guest host Michael Eric Dyson declared last Wednesday that Americans have a “moral obligation” to protest presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump as a “racist demagogue for president.”
The tumult began when Dyson wrote an article for the New Republic's website entitled “We Must March on Cleveland,” where “we must begin to take our stand against Trump and the malignancy he represents” since the candidate is “the worst of the American political mind and soul.”
On Sunday’s This Week, Georgetown University professor and ex-MSNBC regular Michael Eric Dyson spewed a nearly-incomprehensible gumbo of academic jargon and made-up words. He claimed “millions” of Republicans “conceded to the legitimacy” of Trump’s birther claims against President Obama, vs. “some” who “stood on the gap,” and he juxtaposed Trump’s foreign policy “unsagacity” (good luck finding that one on dictionary.com) with Hillary Clinton’s “keen intelligence.”
On Thursday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of Donald Trump's hesitancy to condemn former KKK leader David Duke, CNN co-anchor Alisyn Camerota used the controversy to bring up other alleged racial issues from the past, including Ronald Reagan on "welfare queens" in 1976 and the Willie Horton ads against Democrat Michael Dukakis in 1988. Guest Michael Eric Dyson repeated an old discredited charge that Reagan employed a racist dog whistle by beginning his 1980 presidential campaign in a Mississippi city where an infamous anti-civil rights murder took place 16 years earlier.
On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, left-wing HBO comedian Bill Maher and his all-liberal panel went after deceased conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, as Maher not only joked about the possibility that he died while watching his show, but ended up imagining him "murdering" birds and looking like Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series the evening before his passing.
The latest gushing edition of Politico Magazine released on Wednesday entitled “The Obama Issue: A Special Report on a Historic Presidency,” was loaded with one article after another largely celebrating the impact of President Obama’s waning administration.
NPR Morning Edition anchor interviewed President Obama about just two topics: the Iran deal and race relations. On Wednesday’s morning show, Inskeep began with a question from the radical left – from black professor and MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson – and then just prompted the president instead of really asking questions.
Dyson wrote a column for The New York Times going after the usual allegedly racist suspects: “The right wing had made furious efforts to demonize him as a man unworthy of assuming the mantle of national leadership. The assaults from political figures who portrayed him as a cipher, or a monkey or, later, the police officers who cracked jokes at his expense, proved the toxic atmosphere.” That’s not the section Inskeep quoted.
In a move that would surprise few, MSNBC on Monday night praised Barack Obama's use of the N-word in a recent interview. Analyst Michael Eric Dyson appeared on All In and cheered the President: "He was, I think, quite ingenious, clever to be sure, about exploiting those boundaries by drawing attention to them."
On Monday’s The Ed Show, Michael Eric Dyson, MSNBC political analyst and frequent guest host on the "Lean Forward" network, used the ongoing controversy surrounding Rachel Dolezal claiming to be African American to deride Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Dyson asserted: “I bet a lot more black people would support Rachel Dolezal than would support say Clarence Thomas.”
At NewsBusters this morning, Matthew Philbin posted on how Michael Eric Dyson, in a guest appearance on MSNBC (where else?), placed a great deal of blame for Baltimore's blight on "the ways in which the Baltimore Ravens and Baltimore Orioles with their tax-exempt status were given tremendous goodies to stay into the city."
It would be reasonable to believe that Dyson, who has revealed a vengeful streak in the recent past, is quite pleased at the financial losses the Orioles, their employees, and businesses in the vicinity are being forced to absorb. Thanks to arguably necessary decisions made today, they will continue.
