The MSNBC cable news network is forever on the lookout for racially-tinged "code words" in Republican speeches and "dog whistle" ads by GOP super PACs against Democrats. But the network's keen sense of outrage is conspicuously absent when it comes to attacks by Democratic groups against Mia Love, the African-American Republican Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, who is challenging long-time liberal Rep. Jim Matheson (D).
Michael Warren of the Weekly Standard reported on Sept. 28 about a Utah State Democratic Committee mailer that darkened Love's skin tone. Warren also linked to a Blue Dog Democrat-linked Super PAC ad that falsely charged that Love's record is summed up in the words "skyrocketing crime"...isnt that a Chris Matthews "dog whistle" term?
GOP House candidate Mia Love of Utah says she was “disappointed but not surprised” by the racist materials sent to her office in Saratoga Springs.
Can you keep another secret? Shhhhh...Texas is about to elect yet another Republican Hispanic US Senator.....Dem US Senators are all white, all the time....
