"Poor Al Gore must be sweating it out over the Climategate emails and documents posted on the internet in November 2009 – just weeks before the Copenhagen climate change conference.
"Gore canceled a speech he was to give in Copenhagen on his Chicken Little beliefs about climate change. The cancellation came after the Climategate emails went viral around the globe."
In a discussion with Mark McKinnon of the Daily Beast and Susan Page of USA Today, Matthews said: "And they're monochromatic, right?... Meaning they're all white. All of them -- every single one of them -- is white."
Members of the Project 21 black leadership disagree. They were there.
Bob Parks, a Project 21 member from Virginia, said: "Here's a news flash for Chris Matthews. I was there. So was my son. Last time I checked, both of us are black -- and we weren't the only black people there. I know other black people who attended the September 12 rally in Washington, including some of the ones who spoke at the podium! I guess the MSNBC camera people missed them."
"To me, this means Chris Matthews thinks that blacks who don't toe the liberal line are either invisible - and apparently irrelevant - or such sellouts that they've become white. Obviously, he doesn't have the guts to have us on 'Hardball' so he can call us all-white 'teabaggers' to our faces."
Project 21 Fellow Deneen Borelli of New York was one of the speakers at the September 12 rally. She said: "Chris Matthews' statement exposes how his narrow-minded liberal bias blinds him to the truth. I was a speaker at the FreedomWorks 9.12 March on D.C. and several similar rallies in Pennsylvania. I'm also an active member in a local tea party organization. The tea party movement is not about color. It is about Americans expressing their concerns about the growth of government which will diminish individual liberty."
Borelli continued: "Chris Matthews may be the first liberal of the new year to play the race card to try to stifle First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly, but I'm sure he won't be the last."
Besides the September 12 rally in Washington, D.C., Deneen also spoke at tea party rallies in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 9, 2009 and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on November 14, 2009. She has been asked to speak at the "Tax Day Tea Party" being organized by FreedomWorks in Washington, D.C. for April 15, 2010 and is a member of the White Plains Tea Party in New York.

Sharpton has yet to renounce his own role in provoking an arson attack against a Jewish storeowner in Harlem in 1995, which killed seven victims; or his involvement in the Tawana Brawley hoax, in which a 15-year-old girl falsely accused six white men, including police officers, of having abducted, raped and tortured her; and dozens of other similar incidents. Listening to the likes of Sharpton suggests Stern is the one not 'fit' to keep his job."

"A leading Catholic cardinal has said Europeans only have themselves to blame for allowing Islam to 'conquer' the continent."
"On one side of Obama’s face is Mr. Transparency, the idealistic candidate who promised us over and over again that all the negotiations concerning health care reform would be conducted out in the open on C-Span. On the other side of his face is Mr. Chicago Pol, the cynical manipulator and consummate political insider who is working behind closed doors with a handful of Democratic Senate and House leaders to ram Obamacare down the American people’s throats.
"Blurbs from eight different videos of Obama campaign appearances during which he made the C-Span pledge were shown on the various Fox News talk shows, and were featured on the Drudge Report. No surprise there. I expected the mainstream media to wave the blurbs off as just another example of conservative nit-picking, much as Nancy Pelosi did when she quipped:
'There are a number of things he was for on the campaign trail.'”
