Leftists can only succeed if good men don’t point at them and laugh. Ridicule, sneers and insults aimed at the right have become a trademark of MSNBC’s commentators, but Rachel Maddow took them to new heights last week providing an opportunity to turn the tables. Proving herself to be agenda-driven and ignorant, Maddow launched an uninformed assault against Alabama Tea Party candidate Les Phillip, a black businessman and Navy veteran who immigrated with his parents from Trinidad in his youth.

Following Meghan McCain’s recent appearance on ABC’s The View, which NRB covered here and here, where the ‘Valley Girl’ equated racism with a comment made at the Tea Party Convention regarding literacy tests for voting, Phillip responded with the statement,

“Ms. McCain has led a life of privilege and couldn’t understand the pressures of living paycheck to paycheck. I respect her father’s service to this country, but she ridicules what she cannot understand.”

Leaping to McCain’s defense, Maddow not only mocked Phillip but alleged he wants, 

“To bring back Jim Crow era voting literacy tests that were used for generations in this country to deny black people the right to vote.” 

Perhaps Maddow was assuming Phillip was another one of those angry white racist Republicans. Look again Rachel. Perhaps you should become familiar with both content and visuals aired on your show. It looks like the last laugh’s on you.
