Two Old Dudes Blowing Each Other

That headline is actually taken from an old AndrewR. poem, channeling William Carlos Williams:

So much depends
on a red wheelbarrow
and two old dudes
blowing each other

Below is Wright whining to the solemn, concerned Billy Moyers that he was unfairly "taken out of context." Notice the tough, close questioning that follows. Or will follow, presumably. In like 2043.

The rest of the interview clips in the sidebar here.

Of course, the MSM, having been given its assigned bullet-points, is attempting to spin that his remarks were "distorted" and "taken out of context."

They are hamstrung by the fact that they cannot offer any "context," supposedly dishonestly stripped from his remarks, which will rescue them into the realm of the non-offensive and non-hateful and non-lunatic. So they just vaguely assert that there must, somewhere, be such saving language in the speeches, without every quite saying what that language is or how that language somehow changes the meaning of his his hate-filled lunacies.

Here's that much ballyhooed "context." This doesn't change the meaning of his remarks at all. In fact it damns him still further by proving conclusively these were not stray remarks that got away from him in a moment of red temper, but part of a long, calculated indictment of "God Damn America" and the US government which apparently gives crack and AIDS to blacks to keep them down.

Question: If the media thinks he was "taken out of context," then why not save this poor misrepresented man by prominently running the full versions of his two most notorious sermons -- "Chickens Have Come Home to Roost" and "God Damn America"?

This poor guy has been so abused by people twisting his words. So, MSM: Correct this great injustice and run the full sermons on your kill-time news magazine shows.

Isn't that what you're there for? To fight injustice and promote the truth?

So do your fucking jobs, scumbags. If he's "misquoted," run the fucking sermons in their entirety.

Not gonna do that though, are you?
