Sad that political left will edit video tape in order to falsely accuse Jason Rapert of racism!!!!!

I am never surprised at what liberals will say. Being on the Arkansas Times Blog and debating gun control, and abortion over and over and over and over again like I have in the past has made me aware of what liberals will do to take one for the team even if deep down they know it is a hack job.

I can understand national publications like the Huffington Post, NY Magazine, and other liberal blogs being mislead by this hack job on Jason Rapert done by The Nation, but it is truly amazing to me that Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times Blog who prides himself in always being completely honest would buy into this hack job on Jason Rapert. Brantley lives here in Arkansas and he should be able to get to the bottom of this.  It clearly comes down to being on the liberal team that opposes pro-life laws and he will take up for those who are involved in the hack job if they are prochoice. In his weekly podcast at the 7 min mark Brantley said he listened to Rapert’s comment in context and contends  it was a racial comment. Furthermore on his blog Brantley asserted, “Rapert defenders contend he was talking about minority political interests, not minorities, references to the Obama birth certificate, Muslims and a Ramadan event notwithstanding.”

But the truth always does come out eventually. John Lyon of Stephens Media did have a balanced article that included an explantion from Jason Rapert and Jason Tolbert also gave both sides.

JasonTolbert on his blog www.tolbertreport.com reported:

The comments receiving focus have to do with a portion of Rapert’s speech where he discussed “minorities.” Here, context is key.

Here is the quote The Nation posted in an edited video (emphasis mine)…

“I hear you loud and clear, Barack Obama. You don’t represent the country that I grew up with. And your values is not going to save us. We’re going to take this country back for the Lord. We’re going to try to take this country back for conservatism. And we’re not going to allow minorities to run roughshod over what you people believe in!”

____________

Tolbert continues:

So what did he mean by minorities?  A separate portion of the video (see below) sheds light on this (again emphasis mine).  Before the above remark, Rapert addressed the case in which the Arkansas Supreme Court overturned the ban of gay foster parents saying…

“Here in Arkansas we tried to do something about our values on that. We said ‘You know what. Where we have foster children, we want them to be in a good home with a mommy and a daddy.’ Do ya’ll think that’s alright? Well, right here the other day a bunch of your Supreme Court Justices just struck it down – said your vote don’t count. I am here to tell you that we are a people who is ruled by a majority in this country. And I am tired of minority interests that are running roughshod over you and me.”

______________

Tolbert went on to say:

It is clear with that context from earlier in the same speech that Rapert was talking about courts overturning the votes of the majority of voters in favor of the minority of voters and not talking about an ethic group.

“The majority of people in Arkansas oppose the policies of President Obama, including his health care law,” Rapert explained further to me Friday evening. “Those Arkansans that support the President’s policies are in the minority, and in 2011 it was those minority political viewpoints that our leaders were using to govern hardworking Arkansas taxpayers who hold common sense conservative ideals. I resent any false accusation or false allegation that personally attacks me or my family, or attacks my character in order to advance a political agenda. We saw too many of these types of personal attacks from Democrats in 2012 and voters rejected those attacks by electing conservative majorities to the Arkansas legislature.”

The explanation fits in line with the full unedited version of the video.  It is also worth noting that Rapert just won a heated re-election campaign with a ton of money spent on opposition research.  The fact that his opponent did not ever mention this video, which has been posted for almost two years now, and never charged Rapert with all sorts of racism speaks volumes.

“The point of the article was to attack the legislation. It is another example of liberals trying to kill pro-life legislation, and we’ve seen that before here in Arkansas,” said Rapert. “The baseless charge of racism is desperation. A man should be judged by the fruits he bears in his life and my life and works show clearly I am no racist. This attack is about the Heartbeat Bill and the fact that it is very close to passing in our state.”

Another hack job supported by liberals like Max Brantley. Brantley of the Arkansas Times Blog said in his weekly podcast, “I had to laugh because his (Rapert’s) defenders said instantly, ‘Jason Rapert is talking about political minorites, not the black Negro president, but you have to listen to the whole tape..”

RAPERT WAS TALKING ABOUT MINORITY POLITICAL INTERESTS AND NEVER ONCE MENTIONED THE RACE OF OUR PRESIDENT BUT HIS POLICIES.

Many liberals actually truly do argue for abortion rights over human rights. Prochoice advocate Elizabeth Williams came out and said that on 1-23-13 in her article on Salon. We hear reasons for abortion such as poverty,and  child abuse,  but why not consider adoption? Instead, the political left will stop at nothing to push the pro-abortion agenda. Why not stop and take an honest look at when life begins for the unborn child and when she begins to feel pain?

    His own words coming out of his mouth are not “out of context” or edited. Jason Rapert is an inbred hick that has conned enough people to get himself elected. Perhaps the good people of Arkansas will wake up and reject that racist douche.

      Just answer this question: If this smoking gun was out there in 2011 on you tube then why didn’t his opponent use it in 2012?
      Either she was an idiot or the video hack job was beneath her!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mill Run  On February 3, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    are you a lying idiot or a naive idiot? or both.

    • Everette Hatcher III  On February 4, 2013 at 8:58 am

      Mill Run, this issue of abortion has caused the political left to do the video hack job on Rapert. That is very clear from the facts. Look at the 20 minute speech from Rapert and you can see he was taking about political policies that were not held by the majority of the people in Arkansas. Where is the mention of race?
