Ed Schultz deceptively edits video to accuse Perry of racism

Breitbart.TV caught this on Ed Schultz’s show on MSNBC, where Schultz accused Rick Perry of referring to Obama as a “big black cloud over America”. The only problem was that Perry was referring to the 16 trillion in debt, which was absolutely the context of his comments, which Ed Schultz purposely edited out of the sound byte so that he could accuse Perry of racism:

First of all, allow me. Obama is a big black cloud over America and it is not racist to say it. Obama has been smothering this economy every since he stepped into the Oval office and that is exactly what it means.



But more importantly, deceptively editing a clip to make an absurd accusation of racism against a presidential candidate is about as low as it gets. But what’s even more absurd would be the fact that anyone bought the edit. Without even hearing the continuation of Perry’s comments, it was clear he was referring to the debt. Which means Ed Schultz is not only just a low-life scumbag, but a low-life scumbag who thinks his audience is a bunch of idiots. Well, perhaps they are if they think Ed Schultz is anything but a liar.

UPDATE: Apparently Ed Schultz isn’t the only one falsely accusing Perry of racism over this same quote.

  1. ed shultz, people still listen to this windbag? lol why doesnt he strut through some old shipping container montages and sit on a diner stool and tell us how he cant believe what we’ve become- then collect his weekly 100k.

  2. There ought to be mandatory criminal penalties for anyone in the media lying publicly like this. This is the exact opposite of what the press is supposed to do.

    Let me lay aside seriousness for a moment and frivolously say that I wish the punishment could be having his lips sewed shut. Or at least super-glued.

  4. Folks know Perry is my last choice for President, but this is purely disgraceful. I am sick of hearing Ed’s fake sounding apologies, but he certainly owes one to Perry. I am glad I have never seen this “man’s” drivel filled show, only cuts I see here on Scoop.

  5. I’ve said it over and over again. The libs have no moral compulsion against lying, cheating, deception, or any other illegal or unethical tactic they feel will further their communist agenda. The thing is, there are certain segments of American society who will only see this liar Schultz and his BS. They are not involved enough in the political process, nor do they have access to the truth made public on the internet…or they are just too stupid and lazy to care. These are the ones that will vote for Obama simply because he promises to keep the free benefits coming.

    1. Not good enough, anymore.

      Special Ed’s been caught spreading lies about FOXNews not paying taxes, and he was only given a vacation after calling a FOXNews contributor by a sexual slur on the air, knowingly. Its time the heat was not only brought against him, personally, with HEFTY defamation, slander and libel lawsuits, but against MSNBC and HEAVY pressure being exerted against COMCAST. Comcast chose to involve itself in this mess by buying MSNBC, a poorly-rated, left-wing, yellow journalism mecca. Its time consumers start voting with their pocketbooks, and let Comcast know that they don’t want MSNBC on, anymore. Liberals are always out to censor and eradicate FOXNews, in spite of being a consistent ratings performer, outperforming all other news networks. MSNBC is a proven low-yield loser. Comcast needs to cut it’s losses, and not risk potential customer blowback in the era of severe competition from satellite TV. All parties have got to be made to feel the heat, and then they’ve got to burn. Just threats and a little hotness on the feet doesn’t work; it never has. Time to throw them all in the fire.

    1. I live in Texas. Perry has chased the trial lawyers out and brought businesses in and lowered my property taxes and my malpractice insurance cost has fallen by 50 percent since W. Bush left office and Perry got in. THIS is a RINO? BRING ON THE RINOS!!!

  6. Watch Uncle Ed If you are trying to lose weight –

    You will barf every time. He’s not even funny like Matthews who gives me rash on my leg

  7. If Breitbart would quit watching and reporting on this network…Nobody would ever see it….right? Does anyone actually watch this network. They are not partisan journalsist, they are propogandists

  8. Next time Perry could say that BO is responsible for the frozen economy in stead. “The giant white iceberg”. That way they couldn’t cut the tape for racial accusations, but I am sure the left would find something in that to whine over too, they always do.

    1. I just watched Krystol and Krauthammer rip Perry for his campaining style.

      Hah!
      I don’t think they like him very much.

      Perry blew a kiss to Mitt Romney today, when some reporters were asking him something about Romney…and Perry said “Give him my love” with a big grin.

          1. And they are afraid that Perry will bring about tort reform which will destroy their ambulance chasing buddies.

            1. Ooo I hadn’t thought about that.
              Good point.

              Perry has said…repeatedly…that he “would like to see Washington be as inconsequential in our lives as possible”.

              And they don’t like that.
              They are professional beltway pundits.
              If Washington is rendered less powerful over our lives…then they lose some of their power too.

      1. No wonder they are so dizzy, all the spinning they do. They should be in the wool making biz, sweaters for all. Oh, won’t need those, global warming, you know.

  11. Obviously a graduate of the Dan Rather school of broadcasting. With honors. Got his PHD there ( Piled Higher and Deeper )

  12. No surprise here. This is the same cabal who aired video of a man carrying a gun to a townhall meeting in ’09 as “evidence” of racism against a black president. ‘Course, they edited the part of the video that showed the man carrying the gun was black. These people are vile.

  13. Even with the abrupt cutoff edit and Ed Shultz “filling in the blanks”, reasonable people know better. Ed Schultz is a complete moron simply because he thinks we’re all stupid enough to buy this. Conclusion: Ed Schultz (who used to be a right wing commentator) is a douchebag. No surprise here.

  14. Intellectual dishonesty is alive and well on the left. Why does this clown get any serious airtime?

    Lemme guess
    Media Matters marked the edited clip ” URGENT” to its servants ??

  17. I thought he said “That Big Black Clown that’s hanging onto a job at MSNBC” and was referring to Al not so Sharpton, but I could be wrong.

  18. I’m waiting for Rush to pick this up , because that will drive Ed nuts
    and maybe some new gems will fall off Special Ed’s pie hole.

  19. It should be quite offensive to the left as well as Blacks that the LSM and Liberal commentators continue to treat Obama like an affirmative action president. He doesn’t have to meet the same requirements as all other presidents. He gets a pass on everything that he does. If he can’t think of a lie to explain his destruction and incompetence, the LSM will do it for him. He’s being treated as if he is incapable of rising to the level of the presidency. Now that’s pretty offensive but the liberals aren’t bright enough to recognize this. But then you’d have to have a certain level of critical thinking skills to recognize how degrading this is. They think critical thinking skills mean criticizing and demagoguing the other side.

  20. People voted Obama into office to prove we’re not racist already.

    We’re not going to vote ourselves into the poorhouse to prove it a second time.

    1. I’m with Skye on this one. We’ve elected a black man to the highest office in the land (not on my vote, but I’m glad of the historical significance here). As far as I’m concerned, the race baiters can zip it.

      And I hope Perry lights him up on this. Sarah Palin started to push back in an earlier interview, as I recall. This has been going on for too long and getting worse in the last few months. We don’t have to take that kind of foul accusation lying down. We just don’t.

  21. Proving once again that it’s liberals who are obsessed with race and are using it as a political tool rather than anything tangible.

  22. After flipping the channel and seeing Ed Shultz outside of the state house last week in WI with a gaggle of union people cheerleading for the Republicans to be recalled, I was totally in disbelief that MSNBC was still claiming to be an actual television station. His commentators were ALL liberal democrats.
    His agenda is to mock, and embarrass.

    1. The good news of that little stint is the voters of Wisconsin said something like…liberals stink and kept the republicans in power.
      Must suck to be shultz….

      1. Its great, isnt it? I said to my husband, if you had asked us 3- 4 years ago, Do we care about an obscure state recall in Wisconsin- we would have said, you’re nuts.
        But its gotten to the point that just about every election matters!

        1. Hey, are they having that other recall election today in Wisconsin?

          I think I read last week that they were having the one for the two Dems who are up for recall…”next week”.
          And, it’s now next week.
          Do you know?

          Or anyone else?

          I hope the Wisconsin Republicans win both of those two seats!

  23. In all fairness, Obama is just a medium-sized black cloud over America.
    It’ll all clear up soon.
    “The sun comes out tomorrow
    bet yer bottom dollar there’s tomorrow…”

  24. I knew they would start making stuff up…or…call him a racist.
    This is both, at the same time.

    Look at the little graphic strip at the bottom of the screen…
    That picture of Perry with his head tilted and his mouth open?
    It’s like they are trying to make Perry look demented…or handicapped.

    That guy Jim Moore, Co-Author of “Bush’s Brain”…no agenda there.

    I’m guessing the next thing will be to portray him as a ‘dumb Bible-thumper’.

      1. Really?
        No surprise is it…they’re both pigs.

        I wonder if they will be the ones to bring up the “Rick Perry is Gay” thing.

        1. That might be too tawdry for them, but I’m sure there are plenty of others that wouldn’t be afraid to go there.

      2. That would be an OK show if Beckel wasn’t there. He is one of the few Libs to have a sense of humor, but he directs it improperly 🙂

  26. Ok Bret, you dont have to repeat it more than once to see what your pointing out, we know MSNBC is full of crap and thats why no one watches it, but this video is quite annoying.

    1. Anyone who watches MsNBC so that we don’t have to , does a great service to humanity.
      Such a darlin can annoy me all he wants 😀

  27. But more importantly, deceptively editing a clip to make an absurd accusation of racism against a presidential candidate is about as low as it gets
    ————-
    That seems to be the SOP of MsNBC .
    They did the same thing to a clip of a black TEA partier, who was carrying a gun, to call us racists. I think it was C^ntassa Brewer who did it

  28. I am with you TRS. And so what if Perry did say Obama was a big black cloud over America?

    I guess Sargent Schultz would want Obama referred to as a slender half white cloud suspended over part of the world community.

    1. Exactly what I was thinking. Even with the edit, it was obvious he was talking about the debt – but even if he was talking about Baz, so what? The term ‘black cloud’ is just to signify a mood of depression, it’s not relevant to skin colour.

      Could you imagine these clowns reacting this way if someone described a white president as ”running up a white flag” because of a policy u-turn. The colour is in reference to the flag (or cloud) not the skin colour of the president in question.

      1. The leftist media drones won’t know what mud to sling when Allen West says Obama is white washing islam. 🙂

  29. Perry needs to call this jacka** out on this now , he needs to make a big deal of it now and show how the media lies , this needs to become part of the campaign . Republicans need to fight back against this , make an example of him , show how corrupt they are .

    1. I AGREE!! They have to beat them at their own game. And Republicans need to stop coming out bashing other Republicans and the Tea Party. Karl Rove, are you listening??? One thing you never see the Marxist Liberals do is speak against anyone in the party. Even if they know what was said was a lie, they will come out and vigorously defend it.

      1. I don’t know why anyone would listen to Karl Rove. He also spoke against Christine O’Donnell. The liberal media is using Rove’s comments on most of their shows.

  30. Race baiting asshole. Do the liberals think black people are so stupid that they will buy anything they are selling.It has to be getting tougher to play the race card in a nation where you have so many successful high profile black people that are very capable of recognizing that everything is not about race. Liberals have been telling blacks what their cultural role is for years and it is dishonest and devisive.

  31. The only thing more pathetic than this story about Schultz is the fact that people will actually believe him.

  32. Levin is right. This channel and creeps like this just reinforce that MS-LSD is like nothing more than getting a visitors pass to a mental institution. These people aren’t only pathetic, they are mentally ill.

    Fortunately they have a tiny audience.

  34. Wow. Perhaps the WhiteHouse Insider is correct. They will be using race baiting at every opportunity – even if it means editing the tape.
