Mehlman Vs. Dean On Meet The Press

As Drudge pointed out Democratic National Committee chairman, Howard Dean declined a chance to appear on Meet The Press jointly with Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman. From the transcript you'll have to imagine what might have happened had the two men been present to discuss the racial epithets thrown as Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele, who has announced his candidacy for the Senate in 2006.

MR. RUSSERT: Coming up next is the Democratic Party chairman, Howard Dean. How's he doing?

MR. MEHLMAN: I think that--I was hoping that Chairman Dean would be on sitting next to me this morning and maybe we can do that on a future program. Look, he's somebody I've enjoyed getting to know. We meet in a lot of green rooms, but he's somebody that's got an important job to do. I think I congratulate the Democrats on the victories in New Jersey and Virginia. And I look forward to future contact.

MR. RUSSERT: We invited him. Do you have a question for him?

MR. MEHLMAN: Well, one thing I was surprised not to hear was the Democrats around the country, there's been an utter silence in response to what have been vicious and racist attacks on Michael Steel in Maryland. Michael Steel is the first statewide African-American--it's my state; I grew up in Maryland- -the first statewide African-American ever elected. He's now running for the United States Senate. Yet, the Democratic Senate president called this man an Uncle Tom because he doesn't agree with him on issues. He's had racial epithets thrown at him. He's been derided on a Web site that the Democrats have. And while some Democrats in Maryland have criticized him, there's been utter silence from national Democrats on this important issue. I would hope on this morning's program that Chairman Dean would condemn this kind of racist and bigoted activity. It's wrong. I would also hope he'd condemn the following. There are a whole bunch of Democratic candidates and Republican candidates around the country. But Charles Schumer and the Democratic campaign committee chose one candidate to go after his credit report and engage in identity theft against them and that's Michael Steel, this African-American candidate in Maryland. I think we should be welcoming him to the process as I welcomed Mr. Mfume to the process and I think it's a mistake to make these attacks.

In the next segment Dean addresses the question (sort of):
MR. RUSSERT: Picking up on what Ken Mehlman said about Michael Steele, the African-American Republican candidate in Maryland, being called an Uncle Tom, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee seeking his credit report. Should you not...

DR. DEAN: I don't like that stuff, and I--now, look, the Republicans have a long history of saying that those things happened. And they may or may not have. So if that happened, it's not right. But I didn't hear Ken condemning the chairman of the Maryland party when he called me an anti-Semite. So let's try to up--speaking of moral values, let's have a better tone in our political campaigns. Because the truth is, the other thing that Tim Kaine's race showed is that the person with the better tone and the more positive agenda won, and I like to see voters exercising their rights in that way.

MR. RUSSERT: But the workers on the campaign committee who sought his credit report have been dismissed.

DR. DEAN: They should have been. Absolutely, they should have been. I don't like that kind of stuff.

MR. RUSSERT: Could on either side?

DR. DEAN: On either side.

Not much of a response from Dean...

Mary Katharine:

Russert did a decent job interviewing both guys, but he really let Howard off the hook on the Steele question. Why is Dean allowed to say, "I don't like that stuff" and that's the end of it? Somehow I don't think Mehlman could get away with saying he didn't like something shady the NRSC had done without getting a follow-up question at least.

Why doe the media not report on this stuff. I Think its because the media is Democratic party run. And they are racists towards whites.


Why is the media not reporting on black on white hate crimes. They just act like it never happend no matter how bad it is. Like some of the below happend last month.


THIS IS SHOCKING!

Kamau Kambon, C-SPAN, Oct. 14

The following is an extract from a speech by black activist Kamau Kambon on C-SPAN’s “Black Media Forum on Image of Black Americans in Mainstream Media,” which was broadcast on Oct. 14.


“And we have to start thinking about a solution to the problem. So that these young sisters and brothers who are here now, who are 15, 16, 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems.

“Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem. I know it because they have retina scans, racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the ONE person from coming up with the ONE idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve the problem. [tepid applause] Now I don’t care whether you clap or not but I’m saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not get diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people.”

Listen to the whole speech on C-SPAN. (It begins at 3:33:00)
If this was a white man it would have been war on the news. But since there black its a free pass and needs to stop! My daughters who is 12 was watching it with me and i had no idea what was going to be said. after he said those things she asked me "DAD WHY TO THEY WANT TO KILL US? WHAT DID WE DO WRONG?"
I told her nothing they just want a free pass in the world without working like all other races to make a life for there self.

i saw this on orally one of his black guest said whites owe blacks and blacks owe wants nothing! If it wasnt for whites blacks in this country would not be here. Sounds like your asking for yet another hand out and i find your remarks racist and this hole african reparation thing is crazy and whites owe blacks nothing. if anthing you blacks owe us! Black Africans and Arabs were responsible for enslaving the ancestors of African-Americans. There were 3,000 black slave-owners in the ante-bellum United States. Are reparations to be paid by their descendants too? Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again? Duke University professor John Hope Franklin, records that in New Orleans over 3,000 free Negroes owned slaves, or 28 percent of the free Negroes in that city.


*What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?*


Slavery existed for thousands of years before the Atlantic slave trade was born, and in all societies. But in the thousand years of its existence, there never was an anti-slavery movement until white Christians - Englishmen and Americans -- created one. If not for the anti-slavery attitudes and military power of white Englishmen and Americans, the slave trade would not have been brought to an end. If not for the sacrifices of white soldiers and a white American president who gave his life to sign the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in America would still be slaves. If not for the dedication of Americans of all ethnicities and colors to a society based on the principle that all men are created equal, blacks in America would not enjoy the highest standard of living of blacks anywhere in the world, and indeed one of the highest standards of living of any people in the world. They would not enjoy the greatest freedoms and the most thoroughly protected individual rights anywhere. Where is the gratitude of black America and its leaders for those gifts?

And white america seems to put up with BLACKS on Crimes of murder of whites,raps,looting, and alot others.
You people just never give up or atleast try to get a job and work hard for your life here on this planet. You will not get a free hand out anymore and whites will no longer tolerate this.

The media is blind to all wrong doings of blacks like kambone on c-span saying KILL ALL WHITES and alot other racist hate things going on even with FARKON who is supported my so called civil rights groups like NAACP,BLACK CUKUS LEADERS and alot others. This whole thing is racist and us whites will not tolarate this anymore!

And then you Have FARAKON who is the number 1 racist of all but yet is able to rally and make racist remarks agaisnt Whites And Jews. Calling whites {{{WHITE DEVILS}}}. And he is supported by so called civil rights leadrs as NAACP,BLACK CUKUS LEADERS AND OTHERS.... Whats going on here???? And the BLACK ON WHITE HATE CRIMES ARE STAGERING NUMBERS. Whites need to take a stand on this.

Look at what happend to Bill Bennet after his comments was taking outa text and made to sound racist. IT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS. But yet when blacks make threats agianst whites its covered up.
And is getting outa control. Listen to the rap songs about whites...its wrong and the media knows this...
Only one person coverd this story and it was BILL ORILLY! after i wrote some 30 emails to FOX NEWS!.
Write you congressmen and media and demand answers. This is racism. And if we dont stop it now its going to get outa control. Look at what happend to ohio teldo. Nazi group goese to protest black on white gang crimes and the blacks start looting and burning house throwing rocks. its crazy. and no i dont support nazi groups just making a valid point!

Look at paris Blacks are rioting outa control......its getting crazy! but the news dont say that they are blacks that died running from police.


yea i cut and past it whats it to ya you rats. my father was in Vietnam and he has bad flash backs from it. he dosnt like to talk about it so i dont asked about it. all i know is he says it was hell.


the rats are running. i love it.

interview with ted kennedy and how he lies..RATS!


But, Senator, what the Democrats stood for on the floor of the Senate in 2002--let me show you who said what I just read: John Kerry, your candidate for president. He was talking about a nuclear threat from Saddam Hussein. Hillary Clinton voted for the war. John Edwards, Joe Lieberman, John Kerry. Democrats said the same things about Saddam Hussein. You, yourself, said, "Saddam is dangerous. He's got dangerous weapons." It wasn't just the Bush White House.


Has the whole left of the aisle forgotten that the CIA was run by George Tenant Clinton appointee and Democrat? I am stunned that they can even get this **** out of their mouth.


Bill Clinton had dodged the draft during the Vietnam War and used marijuana, which he claimed he had smoked, but "didn't inhale." A classic lie. i wonder if he was that dumb to tell the police that if he got pulled over. cheach,chong, and bill clinton. "i smoked it but did not inhale" i had sex with Monica Lewinsky but what happend was i fell down and my dick got stuck. it was an accident...LOL!
Clinton was the second U.S. president to be impeached by the House of Representatives.Clinton initially denied having any improper relationship with Lewinsky, but later admitted that it had in fact taken place. He apologized to the nation for his actions. RATS LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

a failed attempt to create a comprehensive health care system under a plan developed by the First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, the independent investigating commission was critical of Clinton for focusing more on diplomatic than military means to eliminate the bin Laden threat.


In addition to impeachment and the Whitewater scandal, the Clinton White House was the subject of many scandals. Travelgate refers to the firing of White House travel office staffers allegedly to give business to Clinton's cousin and utilize the plane of Harry Thomason. Filegate refers to White House handling of hundreds of personnel files from individuals without asking for their permission. The White House explanation was that it was merely a "bureaucratic snafu." Chinagate involved Democrats accepting improper campaign contributions; allegedly the ultimate source of this money was the Chinese government. Pardongate refers to a grant of clemency to FALN members in 1999 and pardons to his brother and others in 2001 (see Clinton's Pardons List). In March, 1998 Kathleen Willey, a White House aide, alleged that Clinton had sexually assaulted her. Also in 1998, Juanita Broaddrick alleged that Clinton had raped her in 1978. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy was acquitted on each of 30 charges of illegally accepting gifts such as sports tickets, lodging, and transportation from companies regulated by his department in exchange for favors. Sounds like mr clinton was more on the lines of one horney rat even knowing he is married. MORE LIES FROM THE RATS!

HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for misstating to the FBI the amount of money he gave his girlfriend.Clinton friend and confidant Vince Foster is found dead of a gunshot wound; later determined to be suicide. sounds like they toke hime out because he know to much.

this man is crazy!

Former President Bill Clinton said that he supports the efforts of Louis Farrakhan and the Million More March.
Clinton said that the gathering - formally announced last week by Minister Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Rev. Jesse L. Jackson - could train a positive spotlight on critical issues impacting African Americans.When will Clinton? And when will the ADL have the guts to condemn/criticize/confront an ex-president who is now an enabler of the pied piper of racism and anti-Semitism?Despite repeated calls to the Anti-Defamation League’s press office over several days, I couldn’t get any one to talk to me about Clinton’s endorsement of Farrakhan’s march and, by extension, of Farrakhan.
With Clinton standing proudly at his side, perhaps Farrakhan will elucidate some of the other esoteric aspects of his theology - how the white race is the result of a genetic experiment by an evil black scientist, named Yacub, 6,000 years ago. Or how the minister was taken up to a UFO "mothership" where he got the inspiration for the original Million Man March. (Beam him up, Adolph.)

Farrakhan is an uber-bigot. Clinton is a boob. The ADL is a pathetic fraud. The next time you hear Foxman wailing and rending his garments over anti-Semitism, remember how Clinton’s TLC for the Nation of Islam got a free pass from the ADL.


so to some this all up about CLINTON and the domcratic party. THEY ARE RACIST AGAINST WHITES, THEY MURDER,THEY RAPE,THEY STEAL.AND HAND OUT FREE PASS TO RACISM AGAINST WHITES! WHAT A WIGGER! AND THE RATS!


Student observes double standards at Winthrop

by Christine Byington
November 05, 2005

Black people at Winthrop will probably be angry. And I’m sure they will proclaim that Christine Byington doesn’t care about black people. If you care, however, you will read this thoughtfully.

To begin, I think it’s important to state a fact obvious to those who know me well. I don’t mean to implicate all blacks in this. I just have a problem with the belligerent ones who think we aren’t doing enough for them.

Hurricane Katrina brought back to the public attention the ongoing issue of race relations in America. The tragedy quickly shifted from concern for the people affected by the hurricane to the judgment that the federal government did not like black people. Obviously, the federal government has a vendetta against the blacks and chose not to respond to them quickly, right?

I guess we’re assuming that the many people of various ethnic backgrounds in the Bush administration don’t care about black people, either.

Today in the daily student announcements I saw the “Black Fact of the Week.” I did not have a problem with this in itself. Surely it is important for us to understand the contributions of black people in our lives. However, this is just one piece of an ever-complicating problem on campus.

In case you don’t know, there are quite a few groups on Facebook devoted to black people. Two in particular caught my attention: “Winthrop Does Not Like Black People” and “I Should’ve Went to a Blacker College.”

The first group describes itself as, “a group for people that agree that Winthrop is not a university for black people. Winthrop really doesn't try to do anything for blacks and black people has to work so hard to get things here.”

My main point with that description, being the amateur grammarian that I purport to be, is that the first step to “get things here” is to use proper English. To get what you want, you have to work hard. I don’t think this is a problem unique to black people. Everyone has to work hard in college.

I also wonder what they want. If anyone who is a member of that group would like to inform us what they want, then that would be super. My friends and I hypothesize that professors are equal opportunity dislikers. They don’t necessarily make things difficult for you because of your skin color or any other variable. They make things difficult because they can.

Seriously, though, what would you like Winthrop to do more of for you? I’m sure the administration would like to hear your options because they dedicate themselves to making Winthrop a positive learning environment. No, that was not a facetious comment.

The second group I mentioned begins its description with a simple question:

“Are u sick of not finding anyone good to do your hair without paying an arm and a leg? Do you ever see an HBCU's band and then hear the sorry Winthrop Pep Band and feel ashamed? Do you find yourself fleeing to other colleges just to enjoy a REAL homecoming (ex: football team)? Did you look around the first day of orientation and was like what the hell did I get myself into? Then you should have gone to a blacker college!”

I think this opinion I am about to write applies to everyone who complains for hours about Winthrop. If you hate the school so much, you have options. Namely, go ahead and go to another college. This Facebook group brings up the issue of having no football team at Winthrop. I don’t know about anyone else, but I knew Winthrop didn’t have a football team when I applied. Chances are you did too.

I have enjoyed many-a-comment in class about the plight of black people. Now, I understand taking pride in your heritage. However, it is just that-heritage. We no longer hose people in the streets. I’d say if you have the freedom to sit in a classroom and state those opinions, you’ve got it pretty well. I think the problem many people see with all the racially based arguments is that it seems those who argue the points are using past experience as present justification. They still think that the United States is a racist country and that the country isn’t doing enough for them.

I am a Republican and I definitely believe in the Republican-esque approach to achievement: Anyone can succeed in life if they try hard enough. Sure, there might have been many barriers to black success 40 years ago. However, it’s 2005. With the exception of a minority of businesses and perhaps universities, there are not many barriers to deal with anymore.

In fact, I think there has been a surge in specialized programs for people of various ethnic backgrounds. For example, I’ve been looking into summer research programs in psychology. I’ve noticed that most of the programs are limited to students of ill-represented groups (i.e., ethnic minorities). I am only half black and I don’t want to use that as my way to get into a program.

Ultimately, I think we need to achieve more equality. To be truly equitable, for example, we should offer programs that are specifically for whites. Yes, I just said that. I’m sure a lot of people just slammed the paper down and spouted a few expletives. But don’t you see the logic here? It can’t be a problem in one instance and not in another. Kids, that’s called a double standard.

This happens far too often, though. Some blacks are happy with the programs that benefit them. Once a similar program starts that is geared toward whites, all of a sudden the program becomes racist. Like a person I know once said, if an Association of Ivorites was established on campus, people would be up in arms.

We need only look at the case of a whites-only scholarship established at Roger Williams University last year. The group who sponsored the scholarship did so not out of racism but out of a desire to be fair.

Those who complain about the state of affairs tend to cite this desire for fairness. However, to be truly fair, we should offer such specialized opportunities for various groups in America. We should also offer White Facts of the Day and Hispanic Facts of the Day, among others.

I think it’s important to mention the groups on Facebook that are devoted to intelligent and articulate blacks. It’s somewhat disappointing when that is perceived as a surprise. I’m sure if you approached any of those people and asked them what people in their families or communities thought of them, you’d probably find a few who would tell you people didn’t like them.

Some in the black community frown upon black students succeeding in life. I think we have a problem when we need Facebook groups to highlight the articulate blacks on campus. While others are spending time complaining about the way things are, there are students at this school who are doing something about those problems.

A basic observation of people would show you that if you devote time to complaining about the way things are (Jesse Jackson), you don’t have as much time to devote to finding effective solutions.

To the angry black people who might be reading this column, understand that I do not mean ill will toward you. Basically, I’m the “safe” person to write this because I’m biracial. Know that there are many people on this campus who feel the same way I do but who do not want to air their opinions in the Johnsonian because, well, they are white.

I think it’s sad when some whites feel they must stifle their opinions because of the color of their skin. That must be what life was like for blacks in the 1950s.

why does this not get reported by the media????? If this was whites talking about blacks it would be all over the news.

THIS IS SHOCKING!

Iam not a racist but iam sick of hearing blacks cry racism useing it as a cruch to get what they want. and if you agree with them then you are a racist.

89:

Let me add that Dean spoke out against the "Jews blew up the WTC" pamphlets that were distributed among Democrats in Congress. So I don't think Dean is a Nazi.
(I just skipped over the "whiteman" comment.)

DL:

The person with the cowboy boots won Dean.

Wait till Hillary finds this out, she'll move to Texas!

Which remins me about the time she was bitten by a cotton mouth in Arkansas - the snake died!

American First:

Well Whiteman, the reason the African-Americans are pissed at us is that we basically opressed them for over 400 years. Stuff like removing them from Africa and making them our slaves for a few hundred years. Then when we free them from slavery its another 100 years before we allow them to vote. And they are only allowed to vote after a few thousand of them were hung from trees.

And DL. Who are you talking about? That fake Texan in the White House? I am from and live in Texas so if you are going to call him the person with the cowboy boots, you might as well say those boots are empty....

Black Africans and Arabs we... (Below threshold)
whiteman:

Black Africans and Arabs were responsible for enslaving the ancestors of African-Americans. There were 3,000 black slave-owners in the ante-bellum United States. Are reparations to be paid by their descendants too? Only a tiny minority of Americans ever owned slaves. This is true even for those who lived in the ante-bellum South where only one white in five was a slaveholder. Why should their descendants owe a debt? What about the descendants of the 350,000 Union soldiers who died to free the slaves? They gave their lives. What possible moral principle would ask them to pay (through their descendants) again? Duke University professor John Hope Franklin, records that in New Orleans over 3,000 free Negroes owned slaves, or 28 percent of the free Negroes in that city.


*What About The Debt Blacks Owe To America?*


Slavery existed for thousands of years before the Atlantic slave trade was born, and in all societies. But in the thousand years of its existence, there never was an anti-slavery movement until white Christians - Englishmen and Americans -- created one. If not for the anti-slavery attitudes and military power of white Englishmen and Americans, the slave trade would not have been brought to an end. If not for the sacrifices of white soldiers and a white American president who gave his life to sign the Emancipation Proclamation, blacks in America would still be slaves. If not for the dedication of Americans of all ethnicities and colors to a society based on the principle that all men are created equal, blacks in America would not enjoy the highest standard of living of blacks anywhere in the world, and indeed one of the highest standards of living of any people in the world. They would not enjoy the greatest freedoms and the most thoroughly protected individual rights anywhere. Where is the gratitude of black America and its leaders for those gifts?


so after all this has been over do you still think its right to blame us for are ancesters. If they dont stop crying over it and let it go racism will never end. Instead they use it as a cruch. Thats wrong. Do you see jews,chinise or other races we went through much more then blacks could ever imagen. No they worked it out and got jobs to better there selfs. but not the blacks. They are out of control and its getting worse evry day. So that give them the ok to riot,loot,steal,murder,drugs. I dont think so. Thats why evryone is blind to whats really going on. And the media dont cover nothing. They evne call there owns uncle toms. or black on the outside and white on the inside. Is this right? NO.
And the black on white hate crimes are stagering. But you dont here the big medias covering it. It needs to stop.
