One of the trechniques Hannity uses on Faux News is to pit a sold out Uncle Tom like Jesse Lee Peterson against a weak black “Liberal”, while controlling the conversation such as to get across his racist points.
Here, we have as the guest Uncle Tom, a Michael Meyers of the New York Civil Rights Coalition. More on why Michael is an Uncle Tom, and how he’s bought an paid for after the video -
Now – Steven A. Smith plays the liberal foil (or fool) on this one – who is obviously intellectually way in over his head. Steven’s delivery and accent make perfect cannon fodder. Where Steven fails is when Hannity inserts the first false equivalency – ergo, his comment about Jesse Jackson buying a team…
Allowing Meyers to get fully up onto the porch with his “racial buffoonery” comment.
The simple fact is, niether Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton had a damn thing to do with the NFL’s opposition to Limbaugh’s ownership bid – the level of self-generated controversy to 12 million listeners a week by Limbaugh himself did.
The first question you should be asking is who is Michael Meyers, and who is the New York Civil Rights Coalition? If you go to their website – there is a biography of Meyers. Looks great, until you get all the way down to the bottom where it says -
His other board service has included membership on the Advisory Board of the then Washington, D.C.-based Center for Equal Opportunity; the Philadelphia, PA-based Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE); and The City Club of New York.
The Center for Equal Opportunity is Linda Chavez’s outfit which opposes “Affirmative Action” and Civil Rights. It is essentially a white supremacist organization fully funded by the usual suspects. FIRE is a right wing organization battling what they perceive is the restriction of First Amendment rights of Republicans and Conservatives on college campuses. They are funded by, and led by the usual suspects, and their Board of Directors includes individuals from The Hoover Institute, Heritage Foundation…
So who funds the New York Civil Rights Coalition? I couldn’t find a Donor Report but something interesting popped up looking at the Board of Directors -
NYCRC Board of Directors
Dr. Kenneth B. Clark **, Chair Emeritus
Tamar Jacoby, Assistant Secretary
Michael Meyers, President/Executive Director
Dr. Orlando Patterson
Rabbi Ronald B. Sobel, Chairman
Fredrik S. Stanton, Secretary/Treasurer
The first name which jumps out is “Uncle” Juan Wiliiams, undoubtedly responsible for vetting Mr. Meyers for his buckdance on Hannity. A key to who Mr. Meyers actually works for, is in the name Tamar Jacoby, who is director of the uber-conservative, racial psuedo-science, neo-conservative Manhattan Institute of Charles Murray – The Bell Curve fame.
Is Meyers an Uncle Tom on the Jesse Lee Peterson scale?
Is the NY Civil Rights Coalition a real organization?
About in the same way Peterson’s BOND is a real organization.
Been a tough month for conservative race pimps, driven by their massive overreach against President Obama. The kickback on that…
Is gonna hurt.
