Bob Beckel Tries To Recast Racist Liberals By Mychal Massie on April 9, 2013 in Daily Rant
My opinion of liberals was reinforced last week as I was channel surfing late one evening and happened upon Bob Beckel blustering about Dr. Ben Carson. As many of my regular readers are aware, I do not watch Fox News, but happening upon Beckel at that moment froze my finger just as it readied to click the channel button on the remote control.
Dr. Carson had accurately referenced elitist white liberals as being “the most racist people out there.” That was enough to set Beckel off. He objected to Dr. Carson’s assertion, and launched into a screed accusing him of being ignorant of history. But, Dr. Carson is not ignorant of history – rather it is Beckel who is attempting to deny history.
Beckel claimed that it was liberals who had gone into the South to march with Dr. King – not least of whom was his father. He claimed that his father was a “liberal who went into the South and was arrested 57 times in the civil rights movement registering blacks.”
The telling moment was when Beckel said, “It was liberals who have been on the forefront of every major”… and then caught himself. He did not finish his statement. And well it was that he didn’t because what he was about to assert was a damnable lie, and he knew it.
