Cal Thomas Says America Only Sees 'Angry Black Women' On TV

The attacks on Michelle Obama have "only just begun." On FOX News Watch last week, James Pinkerton was his usual smarmy self, but Cal Thomas engaged in some of the most racist diatribes I've seen so far on television. Cal's theory is that the only black women we see on TV are angry one's because their kids got shot in a drive-by. Except of course Oprah Winfrey. How could he forget? She's the only black women he probably knows. What a horrible thing to say. Is he insane? People like Cal will stoop as slow as they can go to smear Michelle and after Jane Hall identifies the attacks that are coming against Michelle Obama---she actually has to tell these two 'conservative punkits' that she wasn't endorsing the behavior.

Hall: If they can't prove he's a Muslim, then let's prove his wife is an angry black woman. I think it's going to get ugly.

Thomas: And who are the black women you see on the local news at night in cities all over the country. They're usually angry about something. They've had a son who has been shot in a drive-by shooting. They are angry at Bush. So you don't really have a profile of non-angry black women.

HALL: I wasn't endorsing that concept that some people are going to go after her.

OK Cal, you racist pig. I can think of American women that aren't "angry" about having their kids shot. I can think of a couple right off the top of my head. How about Halle Berry, who won an Oscar award in 2001 for Monster's Ball.

And the great Lena Horne---who battled racism her whole career.

Maybe Cal's family just watches reruns of "COPS" over and over again or something.

...and demand they stop this horrific behavior immediately. (h/t Heather transcript below the fold)

JANE HALL, AMERICAN UNIVERSITY: I think one way that people who are going to try to defeat Obama is to somehow prove he's other - he's not one of us. If they can't prove he's a Muslim, then let's prove his wife is an angry black woman. I think it's going to get ugly. I don't think John McCain will sanction it. I think McCain - it's my opinion he will generally try...

SCOTT: But he won't be able to control it.

HALL: I think McCain genuinely doesn't want this kind of campaign, but I think that may be the only, and ugliest way, to go after Obama and people are going to use it.

SCOTT: What do you think, Jim?

JIM PINKERTON, "AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE": Oh, I don't know. I'm kind of curious about Obama, where he lived, what he's done and what he believed. The people that surround Obama so far, Reverend Wright, Father Pfleger, Tony Rezko, these people don't exactly satisfy all your concerns, do they, about who he is and what he stands for and so on.

I think this is entirely legitimate. I think Jane and Jonathan are right. The McCain campaign will stay away from it. As Rich Lowry pointed out, he's so honor-bound, he's going to lose trying to win this election. That's his choice.

But I think the American people deserve a thorough examination of everything about her, especially when they know the MSM are giving her the Jackie Kennedy treatment, trying to just sail her off into Camelot.

THOMAS: I want to pick up on something that Jane said about the angry black woman. Look at the image of angry black women on television. Politically you have Maxine Waters of California, liberal Democrat. She's always angry every time she gets on television. Cynthia McKinney, another angry black woman. And who are the black women you see on the local news at night in cities all over the country. They're usually angry about something. They've had a son who has been shot in a drive-by shooting. They are angry at Bush. So you don't really have a profile of non-angry black women.

(CROSSTALK)

PINKERTON: Oprah Winfrey.

THOMAS: Oprah Winfrey. Yes, there you go, Oprah Winfrey.

HALL: I wasn't endorsing that concept that some people are going to go after her.

MARTIN: What's so fascinating here in that we're having this conversation right now. This is the constant cable chatter.
