Kinda overblown

Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014

* ZOMG…

* The perpetually hyper master of the Internet hyperlinks to a YouTube video as proof

* OK, one of the main participants in that video is Paul McKinley, who got 4 percent of the vote in Chicago running as a Republican against Robin Kelley during the 2013 special election.

Another is Harold “Noonie” Ward, who ran unsuccessfully for MWRD in 2012 and once claimed that the city and state governments “allow” Mexican drug cartels to distribute drugs in Chicago.

Another is Mark Carter, who appeared in yet another of these “Rebel Pundit” videos last January saying the president should resign.

In other words, this isn’t new. Many of the same folks did mainly the same video back in January. Why this is all of a sudden “news” is known only to the meltdown king and, perhaps, CBS 2

Long considered stalwarts for Democratic candidates in Illinois, are African Americans now turning on the party?

GOP Governor candidate Bruce Rauner is touting his support among influential black pastors in Chicago–including Corey Brooks and James Meeks–against Democrat Pat Quinn.

Now a video on You Tube appears to illustrate growing anger with Democrats at the state, local and national levels.

    What is what they are saying NOT true?


  2. - Knome Sane - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:32 pm:

    I used to think Drudge was merely a closet racist, now he is in the great wide open.


  3. - Voice of Reason - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    Why would anyone take this seriously? Oh yah, its Drudge. Sensationalism at its best…


  4. - yo - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    Race is so hilariously sad in this country. Four African Americans saying something must mean all African Americans think that way, right?? LOL. Please.


  5. - circularfiringsquad - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:38 pm:

    Rush did a rant about this today as if these were someone other than paid endorsers
    The air head filling the Roe & Roper time slot did the same


  6. - Demoralized - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    Drudge? Yeah, that’s who I get all of my information from. It’s the hyper-partisan speaking to the hyper-partisan.


  7. - Commander Norton - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:46 pm:

    Dear CBS:

    The existence of a YouTube video is NOT NEWS. Period. Please try again.


  8. - Rockford's Finest - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:46 pm:

    “Blacks”


  9. - JS Mill - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:47 pm:

    CBS 2’s “journalism” is appalling. By all means take what some political hack sends your way and report it as the gospel truth. It seems that is what too many of our so called journalists do today. I am thankful to have found Capitol Fax and some independent thought.


  10. - Living in Machiaville - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    The nay-sayers who are dismissing this are whistling as they pass the grave yard. Dissing the messengers (Drudge, Rush) is typical. Saying that the men in the video are not credible? Why? Cause they ran as outsiders for elected office? I dunno, but I’d keep an eye on this trend.


  11. - Earnest - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 4:25 pm:

    I got a mailer today (didn’t even make it into my house before being pitched)saying Pat Quinn has a NEW plan to raise my taxes. Sigh.


  12. - James formerly from Wrigley - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 5:00 pm:

    These men allege that “black on black” crime in Detroit caused the water shutoffs. Detroit has a white mayor who has a white exec. dir. running Dept of Water. They say blacks are worse off and other groups are better off. Black to white unemployment ratio is at 2:1 lower than Reagan, Clinton or Bush.


  13. - A guy... - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 5:10 pm:

    Kinda???


  14. - Northsider - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 5:11 pm:

    Living in Machiaville @ 3:55: Thanks for the laugh! I saw your comment just after you posted and only now caught my breath from all the guffawing.

    The only “trend” to this “story” is Drudge to Limbaugh to Fox “News” to the rest of the Washington press corps. In other words, the right wing noise machine at work.

    That Channel 2 fell for this is a sad commentary on how far that newsroom has fallen.


  15. - Filmmaker Professor - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 6:45 pm:

    Romney still might win too


  16. - MrJM - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 7:31 pm:

    I gotta go with A Guy on this one…

    – MrJM


  17. - low level - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 8:42 pm:

    Desperate last gasp effort by Republicons. We’ll see after Tuesday.


  18. - Mazejack - Tuesday, Oct 28, 14 @ 10:54 pm:

    Charles Thomas will interview Maze Jackson in 3,2,1…


  19. - admin - Wednesday, Oct 29, 14 @ 2:43 pm:

    The story is posted on Drudge because Rauner is buying up blanket ad space on the site and this black/voter fraud story teaming supports his narrative.
