Video: Stephy Doesn’t Believe Lamont’s Ignorance Of Blackface Jane

posted at 12:18 pm on August 7, 2006 by Ian

Far left Senate hopeful Ned Lamont was confronted about his involvement, or at least knowledge of Jane Hamsher’s blackface drawing that included Senator Lieberman and President Clinton. In case you need a refresher on what she posted, here it is:

Mr. “I don’t know anything about the blogs” struck out again when This Week host George Stephanopoulos, who used to work for Clinton, told him that his denial wasn’t true (emphasis mine):


GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, HOST: Your campaign has really been fueled by the netroots, it’s called, the liberal blogs, who have really taken on the war as their cause and yet just a couple of days ago when one of those blogs took off after Senator Lieberman. You were asked about it and said “I don’t know anything about those blogs.” That wasn’t really true, was it?

NED LAMONT: Look, there are hundreds of blogs out there on every single subject there is. Many of the blogs are supportive of us. I don’t control what these people put on these things. But, yeah, there was one post that I thought was terribly unfortunate. I found out about it and we said ‘that should go, that should stop.’ This is an election, this should be civil, it’s going to be on the issues. I’m going to say that to anybody who pretends to be a supporter of the Lamont campaign and I hope the Senator is saying that to all of his supporters as well. I think it’s important.

Was Lamont behind Huffington Post’s removal of the blackface? It sure sounds like it when he contradicts his “I don’t control these things” remark with “we said that should go, that should stop” statement.

I’m glad Lamont thinks the campaign should be “civil” and about the “issues”, I only wish he would act on it. Perhaps the sugar daddy should ask kooky Jane and other blogs that are “supportive” of him to stop using the term LieberYouth.

Could I possibly have the first comment on Ian’s first HotAir Post? :)

George is making a great attempt to show he isn’t a part of the biased liberal media now isn’t he?

I want to see Lamonts Blackberry! Yeh, he doesn’t know anything about those Bloggers. My ***!!! Nothing worse than a Nutroot in denial.

If only AlGore hadn’t invented this internet thing! Oh how I miss the days when all we had to do was tune in to CBS news to help us know the truth.

Mr. Lamont “didn’t control these things” before he did; he was for them, until he didn’t know about them, then he recalled that he told them what to do, then he was for them again…

Sounds like our 100 marvels in the Senate, on funding the border and addressing immigration. He might be a good fit. Mr. Lieberman might be to certain on the issues.

Georgie is helping Steady Neddy stay clean by getting the truth out now in an attempt to avoid damage control later.

Lamont’s an F-ing liar.

The Democratic Party has been taken over by neo-Brownshirts who will stop at nothing to get into power. This is the important lesson from the Lamont campaign. And everybody reading this blog had better pay attention.

Watch out, folks. If the Democrats take over Congress in November, the fallout will be like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Once they are in power, they will make absolutely certain that they will never, EVER, be out of power again. You can take that to the bank, boys and girls.

Here’s a list of items on the agenda of the Brownshirt Class of 2006 (aka, the “netroots”).

It is a given that the first order of business will be the impeachment of Bush and Cheney and their removal from office. And that will elevate “Speaker Pelosi” to President (sorry Hillery, you’re out of luck!), and “Majority Leader Murtha” to Speaker.

Kiss good-by “conservative talk radio,” because the Speaker Murtha and Senate Majority Leader Reid will immediately move to reestablish the “Fairness Doctrine” — which will chill to the point of *EXTINCTION* conservative voices. If they won’t tolerate “dissent” from Joe Lieberman, one of their own, they certainly won’t tolerate Rush Limbaugh, or anybody else who dares to expose their lies, their treason, and their anti-American beliefs.

Kiss good-by gun ownership, too. If you liked the old, expired so-called “Assault Weapons Ban of 1994,” then you will LOVE the new “Enhanced AW Ban of 2007” — the one that the Brady Center is having wet dreams about that outlaws possession of all firearms as “assault weapons.” The last thing that the Brownshirts Class of 2006 will tolerate is 85 million gun owners — anymore than their forebearers of 1932 Germany did.

Kiss good-by your SUV. The same people who have taken over the Democratic Party are the same people who hate SUVs, hate drilling in ANWR, hate new drilling in the Gulf, and hate building refineries, nuclear power stations, and coal generation of electricity. Do you think these tree-hugging radical socialists care that half of the oil wells in Alaska just went down over the weekend? YOU BET THEY DO! They’re jumping for joy!

Besides the political hay to be made over $5.00/gal or higher gasoline in anti-Bush TV ads, it is their chance, once the Brownshirts get into power, to impose their economic agenda of price controls, higher taxes, “living wages,” death taxes, and defunding the defense department.

Kiss this blog good-by, too. The Alternate Internet Media killed John Kerry’s campaign and sent Dan Rather into retirement. Do you think that the Brownshirt Class of 2006 will allow an independent alternative media to exist, that would continue to EXPOSE the left’s deliberate manipulation of the news to advance the Democratic Party or to expose the media’s deliberate collateration with the “insurgency” in Iraq and Hezbollah in Lebanon?

Folks like Kos, the DU-ers, and evil witches like “The Hamster” want “free speech” and an open “marketplace of ideas” as much as the rest of us want the Clap. They will move heaven and earth to shut Michelle down, to cut the Powerline, to sink the Captain’s Quarters, to terminate those little green footballs who expose their lies and their hatred of the rest of America.

The new owners of the Democratic Party WILL NOT tolerate dissent. And they won’t tolerate us, either.

The Brownshirt Class of 1932 went on to build concentration camps and gas chambers to deal with their enemies. If we sit on our hands this November and allow the Brownshirt Class of 2006 to take over Congress, we will lose forever the ability to be free to express our opinions. We will lose forever the non-”Mainstream Media” voices that expose the lies of the left. We will lose our voices.

And some of us will almost certainly lose much more in the Brave New World that the Brownshirt Democratic Party will build.

Yeah, well… what GeorgeJ said!

Nice one Ian!

By the way, not all the blogs are in Connecticut, only the voters.

Ned seems more like the Geiko gecko, and would you trust him?

I would hope the citizens of Connecticut would have more sense. I hope I’m not wrong.

Kini on August 7, 2006 at 2:51 PM

I cant even spell Connectikit.

gary on August 7, 2006 at 4:10 PM

Hi Ian. Glad to see you’ve joined up.

I don’t know that Lamont’s statement “[T]hat should go” necessarily means he controls what’s posted. He could just have been expressing an opinion.

I’m just sayin’.
