Rachel Maddow is apparently getting her talking points from Little Green Footballs now

October 5, 2009

On the way home last night I was listening to Meet the Press and Rachel Maddow brought up the assertion that Sarah Palin’s ghostwriter associates with white supremacists. An allegation made previously (and initially I believe) on Little Green Footballs. I don’t know if Robert Stacy McCain is a rascist / white supremacist, he says he isn’t, and Johnson has an axe to grind so I am not going to take his word,. Assume he is, so what? Is there any evidence that Lynn Douglas is? If not then this isn’t just Guilt by Association it’s Guilt by Association once removed. (You know someone that knows someone who may be a rascist therefore you are a rascist) This morning LGF is trumpeting the fact that Maddow is using his work on Meet the Press. Good job Chuckie, enjoy it, I don’t think you will like where this leads.

Cynthia Yockey weighs in

If Maddow wants to work guilt-by-association on anyone, why didn’t she start with Moammar Gaddafi’s testimonial for Obama when he was running for president, complete with the assertion that he believes Obama is a Muslim? Or Louis Farrakhan’s testimonial for Obama? The last I looked they were on YouTube, fer cryin’ out loud. And isn’t Gaddafi a Muslim supremacist — commanded by Allah to kill all unbelievers? And isn’t Farrakhan a Muslim black supremacist, commanded by Allah to … say really mean things about white people and unbelievers? Why is there no guilt-by-association for Obama with ANY of the murderers, crooks, Commies, kooks, anti-Semites and tax-evaders that comprise the rogues’ gallery of his life-long bosom friends and fellow travelers? Why is there no guilt-by-association for Obama due to his intimate ties to Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn — who missed killing ME by 10 minutes in 1970, Valerie Jarrett, Rashid Khalidi, Tony Rezko, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Franklin Marshall Davis, just to name a few?

So does Little Miss Atilla

Any chance that this old allegation about McCain is simply being trotted out to slander Palin—the racist who married a native American?

Of course it is – Truth is nothing in service to the cause

The Classic Liberal has a much better round-up than mine

And from McCain himself

Rachel Maddow has got several facts wrong, and you know what? I’m going to let her try to figure out which facts she’s got wrong. She gets paid by MSNBC to report the facts, and as she goes about the process of proving she couldn’t find her own ass with both hands, I’ll be content to watch and laugh.

update – Reading back over this I kind of mixed two issues.

1. Is Robert Stacy McCain a racist? I haven’t seen any evidence of it other than what Charles Johnson has printed. McCain disputes that so I am gong with No.

2. If McCain was racist should Palin be smeared with that brush? Until there is some evidence that she supported such views again the answer is No.

Another update – Andrea Tantaros just cleaned Bob Beckel’s clock on Fox News. Go Andrea.

    Stacy is (1) Southern and (2) unapologetic about it. Some people just can’t deal with that particular combination: they treat sons and daughters of Dixie like dirt because “OMG they had SLAVES!!!1!” a hundred and fifty years ago when not one of them was even alive fercrissake.

    Which just goes to show you who the real haters are and always have been. But you already knew that.
