So he got caught, he will be back slamming another conservative, you watch and see. For me this channel makes me sick in their far left thinking. Again, none of them gives the facts and let you decide. It is always slanted or twisted. I cannot believe that any right minded politician would ever give this media any time at all.
Mr. O’Donnell is one of the sickest of a sick bunch of characters in the liberal world.
Congressional Candidate Steve Pearce Would Support Obama Eligibility Probe In U.S. Senate
I equally chastise and rebuke both the Democrats and Republican parties. But Michael Steele is WAAAYYYY over sensitive, and blew this way out of proportion. I find nothing racist AT ALL in O'Donnell's comments. And I don't even like O'Donnell. Throughout history there have been slaves of ALL RACES and ethnic groups. The term slave or master very APPROPRIATELY applies to both Dem and Rep parties. They both want to enslave the American people.
You truly must be on one wild & crazy trip! Just what are you smoking?
It is obvious that you did not watch the same interview that i did?
You owe Michael Steele a apology as well! But some one like you have no idea what the word apology even means!
Therefore i do not expect one from you on behalf of Michael Steele!
I agree, Jason. Not only are you correct that there have been masters and slaves of ALL races throughout history, slavery is still practiced on the African continent. You can guess what race to which some of the masters belong. Steele has some awfully thin skin…
Part 1 of 2 … Why apologize to him? About the only thing you didn't do was get down on your knees and kiss his arse! Sure he may be a decendent of a former slave, but he wasn't a slave. Did you know that back in the days when Irland was impoverished, sometime around the Irish Potato Famin that many Irish & Scottish men came to America in search of work, only to be ChangHi'd into slavery, to which many wives never heard from their husbands ever again? And how about the Native American Indians? There isn't enough room here to describe the horrors that our own indian ancestors went through, but you don't see us screaming about it when we see or hear indian jokes. It's because none of us were personally slaves and none of it happened to us, but to our ancestors. Then there were the Israelites to the Egyptians. Need I go further? This pandering to black people who call themselves "African-American" all the time makes people sick.
I totally agree Jim. I am sooooo tired of hearing the world apologize to the Africans because they accidentally used a word that is offensive. What about the Israeli slaves in the Biblical days. Many other people were made slaves to men. Africans believe they are the only slaves that ever existed and therefore own that term. Did the Jews in the holocaust have it better?! God, I’m so tired of them crying and feeling sorry for themselves. I had to explain to a young black man that NEGRO is a SPANISH word that means BLACK. IT IS NOT A SLAVE TERM AND IT IS NOT A RACE!!! It is a COLOR that was misprounounced by the white man which made it an offensive term. God help us all when you can’t even speak the Spanish language without an ignorant comment about slavery. Yes, I have a friend with a last name of MONTENEGRO. (Means black mountain) Ooops! Can’t say his last name without offending an African bystander. Sheesh! God help us all!!
Part 2 or 2 … Were they born in Africa? No? Then they're not African-American, they are American who just happen to be Black. For someone to have had ancestors who were slaves and then capitalize on that to somehow throw ourselves a Pitty Party for somebody using the word slave is not only wrong, it is Old. What happened in the past to other people of the same skin color as yourself has nothing whatsoever to do with the living of today. And the only repairations to anyone which need to be paid are to those who have been long dead to which the slavery happened to, not to their decendents. People need to get over themselves and stand on their own merit and stop milking an ancient attrocity which happened to somebody else. By continually seperating ourselves by skin color and constantly bringing up or opening Old Wounds, our country will never heal. It is time we put this to rest and stop demanding that the white man feel shame for what their ancestors did to another who have long been dead.
Your statements- pure truth!
Jim why even make a comment like yours?
Michael Steele was insulted by Lawrence O'Donnell ! Regardless of what color a person may be this is wrong!
As well you are wrong!
That may have been an apology but it sure smelled like mockery and left a bad taste in my mouth. Anytime I watch anything MSNBC does, it just leaves me feeling like I need a shower.
Lawrence O'Donnell's insult of Michael Steele was dispicable!
MSNBC & it's programs host are constantly insulting racially any one who comes on their program who is a black conservative. If Fox News were to insult the black Liberals who come on their various programs the entire Biased Mainstream Media would be in a uproar!
What was even more despicable was the way O'Donnell turned his apology into a rant against Carl Paladino referring to his emails. What does Paladino have to do with O'Donnell's race-baiting remarks towards Steele other than to set the stage for questioning why Steele hasn't rebuked them. O'Donnell's smarmier-than-thou delivery doesn't cut it – He's a piece of crap.
This reporter is a fecal head. I will never listen or believe as fact anything he says because he is obviously biased towards the Obama socialist agenda. He is but one of the journalist plants cultivated to besmirch anyone not in support of the American Communist party and the DNC who are now aligned to seize complete political power. Prominent world Communists are in support of the agenda of the Obama/DNC political ambitions.
For the record, Barack Obama is NOT a descendant of slaves in America. His father is African, not African-American.
Africa is a continent and not a country. Oslammers ol' man was born in Nigeria, a country ruled by GB.
I never said Africa was a country. And Barry, Sr. was born in Kenya, not Nigeria. I'm not sure why I got the geography lesson but, FYI, Kenya being a colony of Great Britain made BHO the Elder a subject of the Crown, not a slave to it (in case that's what you were implying). The UK outlawed the slave trade in and with Africa (the whole continent) before the U.S. ended it here.
The point I was trying to make is that O-Bunghole can't make a credible case that he understands the experience of the descendants of American slaves. Slavery is not in one's genes, and it's not in Obama's past.
<DIV>Yeah, I kinda slipped up on the Nigeria bit. I was in a hurry to do other things, and that was the first African country to come to mind. Everyone knows he was born in Kenya with his grandmother in attendance. Wasn't really trying to give you a geo lesson, but so many people think that A/F is like saying “your state”. And, yes, I agree that he knows nothing about slavery in the U.S. except what he learned in history books since his “African” ancestor was actually “African”. Not trying to get into a pizzing contest. I DID understand what you were saying.</DIV> <DIV style=”FONT: 10pt arial”>
Hey, no harm, no foul. There are just too many people who think being snarky is the way to get attention. I appreciate you getting back to me.
As regards BHO's roots, I'm now in arguments with people who accept that he's not natural born in the sense that the Framers intended; they admit his parentage and place of birth but wish to change the definition of what "natural born" means. Seriously, you can't win with liberals. Prove one point and they're off on another tangent, building a new straw man to replace the one you just blew down. I guess it's better than their usual tactic, which is to resort to name-calling. God only knows how many times I've been called a bigoted, homophobic, xenophobic misogynist, and all because I insist that we live by the laws of our country .
Have a great evening. Thanks again for getting in touch. Sorry about the smartass retorts.
<DIV>LOLOL, don't worry about the remarks. I get my wires crossed sometimes, also. We ARE in agreement on major issues.</DIV> <DIV style=”FONT: 10pt arial”>

My ancestors may (did) own slaves or were slaves of the Romans or Arabs.
But your ancestors may (did) eat my ancesters for a dinner.
I don't understand why this O'Donnell thing is a big deal anyone who listens to MSNBC knows that this company is a liberal racist group.Everyone is a slave to someone and to go back and keep bringing up the slave issue from before 1865 is on the wacky side.I believe that slavery in this country is a dead issue,how many people own slaves today.The only reason this idiot apologized to Steele was because Mike called him otherwise he would be gloating on his remarks.
Hey don't worry about it. KNow one watches MSNBC anyway!!
You call that an apology? All he did was say that he used a word that was not politically correct and then went on to slam other repuiblicans! What an ass!
"…Using a word that he found offensive…". It's not offensive to this disingenuous, fatherless sob. As he is so fond of saying LIER, LIER, LIER, LIER!
I think he just wanted to keep his job…and his home….and his car…his life…and his family from being terrorized. Think of the Zimmerman case. Groveling, but smart?
