Howard Dean Calls Fox News Racist, Chris Wallace Strikes Back

Howard Dean was in full unhinged form this morning on FOX News Sunday. The former DNC leader blamed FOX News for Shirley Sherrod’s ouster:

“Fox News did something that was absolutely racist… They had been pushing a theme of black racism with this phony Black Panther crap… The tea party called out their racist fringe and I think the Republican Party has got to stop appealing to its racist fringe. And, FOX News is what did that.”

Unfortunately for Howard, that wasn’t exactly how things went down. Howard Dean misplayed his race cards… And, Chris Wallace slammed him for it. You see, Fox News didn’t touch the story until Sherrod’s forced resignation was made public Monday evening.

Howard Dean was speechless.

The Hill

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean accused Fox News of promoting racism, including in the recent fracas over the Obama administration’s forced resignation of Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod.
“Let’s just be blunt about this … I think Fox News did something that was absolutely racist,” Dean charged on “Fox News Sunday.”
Dean said Fox helped promote the charges that Sherrod – who is black – made racist comments about white farmers, which led to her forced resignation Monday.
The fervor was built around a video of Sherrod speaking at an event hosted by the NAACP shown online by conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart.

Obama said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack “jumped the gun” in dismissing Sherrod. The NAACP – which initially applauded the move to ouster Sherrod – also apologized. “You’re seeing a calamity of errors here,” Rev. Jesse Jackson said later on Fox News Sunday.

But Dean emphasized that it was Fox News that helped apply the pressure.

“Fox News was not blameless during this,” Dean said. “You played it up.”

But host Chris Wallace shot back, “I know facts are inconvenient things, but let’s deal with the facts.” They include that Fox News did not play the clip or mention her name before the Obama administration forced Sherrod on Monday to step down, he said.


Wild Thing's comment.......

“this phony Black Panther crap”

Facts are facts, Howard. You explain to us why the Obama Administration did not prosecute these criminals.

Michelle Obama started all of this with her white devil speech at the NAACP.....They are so desperate, they have only one card left to play....and it is not working.

That was beautiful when Chris reduced Howie to a harumphing, borgoling, throat clearing liar. I liked it when Chris hit him with “facts are stubborn things” retort.

Howard Dean is a putz of epic proportions. His many years of swilling the Dhimmirat koolaid have left him incapable of original thought, and leaves him babbling when faced with truth presented in logical fashion.

The only people still pushing the racial agenda are those whose livelihoods depend upon keeping the pot stirred and nearing a boil. The rest of us have more pressing the future of the nation, the creeping socialism of the 0bamunists, and the destruction of our freedoms, one by one.

Wallace did hand his hat to him, that's for sure.

I always like watching these lefties when they continue to talk on, using the pre-prescribed talking points, even after they have been confronted with the facts.

There are many Lefties who would have started yelling and attempting to shout over the moderator. Dean kept on talking but at least he did not scream and yell, this time.

Basic rule for all those on the left. Never let the facts get in the way of what you are trying to accomplish.

Hrrmmff, uh, uh, duh, but but, uh, ugh. That's Howard Dean answering tough questions. It is difficult to believe this man actually made it through medical school. As inarticulate as he is I am glad he is head of the DNC. He and "gaffe a minute" Biden show just how screwed up the Democrat Party is.

Of course the RNC has Michael Steele. Damn, politics attracts the worst.

Let me get this straight, Fox News is racist because they aired the Sherrod Story after she was fired, and that is racism, the Black Panthers threaten White Voters at polling places all over Philidelphia, (and they are seen by Barttle Bull a former Kennedy campaign manager for Robert and he verifies this to be true) and then they threaten to kill all the White Cracka's and their babys and this is not racism or to quote Doctor D'mento, "this phony black panther crap."

Doctor Dean should have stuck to housekeeping and emptying bed pans because he can't handle anything to heavy especially when it comes to mind and mouth coordination.

Good point Mark. All Republicans heed to do is sit in a corner and shut up and they're going to be blamed for something. Howard Dean has been proven a jerk again. He's an idiot and not even Democrats with an ounce of sense listen to what he has to say.
