Bob Schieffer: If Sandy Hook
Shooter Had Arab Name, ‘People
Would Be Going Nuts’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/18/2012 10:11:44 AM

During a Sunday morning panel discussion on the potential political impact of Friday’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., CBS Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer put forth the idea that if the shooter had an Arab name, people would be much more inclined to revamp public policy to address such gun violence, much like how government fundamentally changed its role after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Schieffer’s comment came in response to panel guest James Peterson suggesting that addressing the “proliferation of guns” in America “should be a new front in the ‘War on Terror.’”

Unbelievable. Was that really necessary?? As if people aren´t "going nuts" now. I note that Schieffer didn´t mention why 0bama did not include the murders at Fort Hood in his speech when he itemized the tragedies that have happened in this nation. Political correctness will always rule.

I think many an old respected newsman are turning in their graves now. The so called professional journalism news media has lost all sense and sensibility. Public figures as such should know better than to fan the flames of public anger and angst. Sadly this is how civil wars start. I dont want to have to live through a civil war. I just want to live my life. Please people think with your heads and not your glands.

First thought that came to mind, OP.

"Nidal Hassan" --do you think many of the euphemistically labeled "low information voters" remember? --or... dare i say, with sadness and disgust... do they care?
We need the telephone numbers, email addresses etc of all of these Dem/leftie propagandists, and we need to start letting them know that all of them are all mini-me Naked Emperors.

If the shooter had an Arab name, the corrupt media wouldn´t even have named him yet. And they wouldn´t have criticized Islam which tells followers to kill ´infidels´, like they have criticized the NRA and gun owners.

CT had tough gun laws.

The shooter was denied purchase of gun 1 week before.

School was gun-free zone

School didn´t allow shooter onto the campus - he broke in.

Guns were legally owned by shooters mother whom was killed by her son to obtain the guns.

ACLU didn´t allow CT to have state ability to institutionalize shooter, or allow the mother that ability.

Typical preemptive hypocrisy from the inveterate propagandist... If the shooter had an Arab name and shouted jihadi phrases during the shooting, then the news media would be trying their best to distract everybody´s attention from it. And a new crisis or controversy, whether true or wholly fabricated, would soon push it out of the MSM headlines.

Either Bob´s piece of bullpelosi here is deliberate (propaganda) or delusional (hallucination). Either way, he ought to be removed from reporting duties, and -- if nature hasn´t done it already for him -- disconnected from the ongoing gene pool (testectomies, if you will).

When someone actually asks this idiot a tough question, he immediately goes on the ´I didn´t hear anything about that,´ defense. Pleading ignorance for this lying sack of stones is a pretty good move. I can´t think of anyone less informed about anything than this decrepit liar.

Not sure what the difference is, Bob. Anyone who goes into a school and kills 26 people is in my book a terrorist. I don´t care what his name is or what his religion is. I condemn Adam Lanza´s act in exactly the same way I condemn the acts of a bomb-wearing jihadist. I condemn the fact that he was allowed access to guns at all.

Now, maybe you might want to ask the harder question: Why did you say that in the first place? Why are people with Arab names stereotyped as terrorists?

Instead, we´re talking about the guns.

Although we like to joke about it and call liberals mentally ill, many of us, e.g. me, don´t mean that literally. But comments like Schieffer´s and others recently make me begin to wonder. Maybe there IS something organically wrong with their reasoning abilities. But there are too many of them to label them insane. Sometimes it seems there are more of THEM than US.

Then one remembers Oscar Wilde´s epigram, which probably contains as much wisdom as we can ever hope to attain in such matters: In all matters of opinion, our adversaries are insane. It seems to be the human condition.

I wonder if Bob Schieffer has even heard of Abdullatif A. Aldosary. The Iraqi man who blew up a federal building on Nov 30 in Casa Grande, Arizona. The media covers up Arab named acts so the people can´t go nuts because they never hear about it. Haven´t heard of it yourself? You´ll have to do a search for the name and also check Breitbart.

Bob Schieffer is not satified with the pain and hate that one moron has created because he can´t play the race card.

So he uses the absence of race to play the race card

What a cretin, it is impossible to fix this much stupidity. Are you sure this man does not work for MSNBC?

Notice at no time during the media freak out doe the mention of Obama administrations lack of any attempt in four years to control guns or mental illness. I guess its OK for him and this government to kill Mexicans with illegal arms.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
