Huffington Post Dredges Up Another Liberal Distortion

// Last updated on //

Huffington Post bills itself as a liberal media outlet, but it is really nothing more than propaganda.  Their pages continually use exaggerated and distorted headlines to draw the masses.  Most of the comments to the articles demonstrate the people did not even read the articles at all, just the headline; then they use the comments as a personal vent.

In one of their more recent farcical digressions, the “blog” practically accused Bush of being racist for buying a home in a neighborhood that at “one time” had deed restrictions against blacks.  Now, Bush did not write the deed restrictions.  He did not approve the restrictions.  In fact, he was probably, as any sane person would be, unaware of restrictions that have been removed from the deeds on that property for a decade.

The Huffington would have you believe, in their distorted and misleading way, that Bush is racist because of a deed restriction he would have had no reasonable way of knowing about.  Think for yourselves, which we realize is difficult to do if you read the Huff, when you bought your home, did you research the deed restrictions for the last 40-100 years to make sure they were never sexist, racist or biased?

The premise for the article was referenced from the New York Daily News. We will let you determine if the article is of any merit at all by reading it.  Just actually read it.

In the article, they state that an expert real estate agent clearly told them these restrictions were on numerous deeds for decades.  Rosalyn Franke Traylor, a realtor in the upscale Dallas neighborhood where the Bushes will soon reside, told the Daily News such tenets were common before the Civil Rights movement, but have never been enforced.

“I’ve been in the real estate business since the 1980s. In the 1950s (when the deed restrictions were written), I think every deed restriction had that. You can still pull it up on some of the older homes and it will be there (NOW), but it’s not ever enforced,” she said.

Huffington isn’t alone, many liberal blogs picked up on it as a way of pointing a racist finger at our President.  It is one of the stupidest set of “guilt by association” articles we have seen published.

This nonsense Huffington article received nearly 200 DIGGs.  They did it by completely distorting a quote by a woman from the neighborhood in their headline.  HuffingtonPost.com gives a new meaning to the phrase “out of context”.  The rag actually has become the “National Enquirer” for the liberal web.  Republican space babies are no doubt coming soon.

Guys, the election is over, stop bashing Bush to get points.  We know that it is easy to get DIGGs by finding any dirt on the President.  People are sheep, especially those reading these nonsense dregs, and to their credit, the Huffington has grasped the point that the internet is primarily liberal.  Huffington could find tons of cute things to bash Obama and the Democrats about, but it just wouldn’t sell, and Arianna, the wealthy oil barroness all these liberals seem to identify with, believes in sales over the truth any day of the week.  Where do you think Arianna lives folks?

    Yep, it is a stupid guilt by association. It’s just as stupid as trying to paint Obama a terriorist cause he brushed shoulders with Bill Ayers. When is all this b.s. gonna stop.

    I cannot believe someone would respond to this article with such an incredibly irrelevant analogy. Alexander, do you honestly think there is any correlation between working with a known terrorist face to face on the same board for five years and buying a house that had a deed restriction written 50 years ago you could not possibly have known about?

    Huffington Post has apparently sold you a bridge recently. Good luck with that.

    Classic. Distort a story about distorting information. Just read the Huff Post story again, and its still about soon to be neighbors of bush and their fears that all the negative press he brings with him will put the neighborhood at a security risk. The one mention of deed restrictions:
    But Raw Story reports that the area had some issues long before Bush made it his new home. Until 2000, the neighborhood association’s covenant said only white people were allowed to live there, though an exception was made for servants.

    I’ll cede the point that there was no need for the reference to the deed restrictions but the idea that the headline was used to draw rascist connections and that huff post readers are sheep, wtf? The headline is about security fears and the story broke in the WSJ. Huff Post is far from perfect but this story is simply garbage intented to incite the same anger it accusses HP of doing. I’m enjoying the rest of the site though.

    The difference in this with BUSH, is that he has been the friggin President for the last 8 years and wouldn’t you think that if for nothing else he wouldn’t WANT to be associated with an area that has on it’s books even an old legislation but surely one to that degree, and much more so, it’s not like he is moving to a state that he wasn’t GOVERNOR of!!! Put it to rest. Your guy LOST!!! Get over it.

    And, yeah, going further with your analogy, Bush didn’t write the deed to his property, but then again, he didn’t write the Constitution either but that didn’t stop him from rewriting it.

    I read the article about bush buying the house and there was one reference to the neighborhood having been restricted at one time. I read nothing about bush being racist although I think if you look at New Orleans you can’t come up with a much better definition!
    This whole article here is just another straw man.
    redicules!

    So let me get this straight. What you are saying is that you admit HuffingtonPost lies and distorts facts.

    And you add that Fox News does, but don’t cite a single case to make such an argument.

    Barba, you should change your handle to BAAAAAAA-Ba. You are among the flock of Huffington Sheep.

    This neighbourhood was restricted to only whites (and their black or Latino servants) up until 2001. Hardly a progressive neighbourhood that ended it’s racism back in the 50s, 60s or even 70s. It was still White Only when Bush took the Presidency.

    @sheepinthehouse – She has to admit nothing. Without reading the article, which I will soon and comment there about this. Every detail written can’t be blamed on Arianna/Huffpo. Everyone knows the spin of fox news, especially the infamous, O’Lielly, and cases need not be sited. You sound pretty disgruntled and to be one of those spinners yourself. If this comment gets censored, I’ll make a project of spreading the facts to it all, all over Huffingtonpost.com.
