One of the things that has gotten scant attention has been this clip (via Breitbart)

This is significant (and un-reportable) by the MSM for two reasons:

1. President Obama’s whole position on Gay Marriage has been half pander half deceit

2. The NAACP’s official support of Gay Marriage (only two in the board objected) has produced reactions like this:

The Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP), headed by Rev. William Owens of Memphis, Tenn., said that the NAACP had abandoned its core mission by supporting same-sex marriage.

“This is supposed to be an organization for black people who were beaten, who were mistreated and who were enslaved,” Owens told The Huffington Post. “You’re advocating for something that’s not normal, that’s not natural. It’s still out of line, it’s against moral law.”

“Gay marriage is leading us down a bad path,” Owens added. “Our young people are already hurt. They’re already damaged.”

The media has to dodge this issue because it has the potential to create the same split between leadership and rank and file that we have seen in Unions and mainstream coverage of that applause would shatter that narrative.

But as I said this morning, the MSM coverage doesn’t matter. HERE is what matters:

1. Is the Romney Gay Marriage Clip is being played on Black Radio Stations?

2. What has been the listener reaction to it?

The answers to those questions could be earth shaking.

At an event with friends the conversation turned to politics and one of my friends who tend to lean left volunteered something unexpected.

During the course of conversation the topic of Islam came up and Paul one of the most open-minded types there is (and a fun guy to game with) blurted out: Islam? I’m done with ’em.

I turned to him surprised, he travels extensively, meets all kinds of people so such a statement from him was a shock. I asked why?

“Once you start destroying historic sites I’m done.”

He was referring to this story out of Timbuktu:

DAKAR — In northern Mali, members of the Islamic militant group Ansar Dine are systematically destroying mausoleums and revered Muslim tombs in Timbuktu. UNESCO has listed the historic city as a World Heritage site for its ancient mosques and shrines.

Residents of Timbuktu told VOA that armed men from Ansar Dine began leveling the tombs early Saturday morning. The sites, including the tomb of 15th-century Muslim scholar Sidi Mahmoud, are considered sacred by the local population. Hardline Islamist groups like Ansar Dine regard such shrines as sacrilegious, but the sites are an important part of worship for Muslims around the world.

And since Pauls outrage it has continued right along.

Islamist militants destroyed two tombs on Tuesday at the famous 14th century Djingareyber mosque in Timbuktu, classified by UNESCO as a world heritage site

Mind you these are historic Mosques they are taking out.

Paul’s outrage is justified and I’m sure is shared by other antiquarians, but to those of us who have been warning about Radical Islam for a while this is about as unusual as Ted Williams drawing a walk or Lebron James scoring in double figures.

It was just over ten years ago that the famous Buddhas of Bamiyan were blown up by the Taliban ( amazingly an appeal by the UN general assembly to not do so didn’t stop them!), that might explain their silence as this type of thing directed against Christians, Jews, and others have been so common that the MSM considers it as newsworthy as an airplane landing safely.

But my pals’s outrage is still the exception rather than the rule, perhaps because the Mosques of Timbuktu are not as well known as some other historical sites:

Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

Breitbart.com amplifies:

It seems the election of Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi to the office of Egypt’s presidency was all it took to open the door to calls for doing away with everything that does not comport with Islamist doctrine, while simultaneously legalizing (constructing) everything that does. That translates into doing to the pyramids what is currently being done to the tombs in Timbuktu, while legalizing sex-slave marriage and morality police in Egypt.

The media might do their best to downplay the plight of women in Afghanistan, they might downplay the promise of the new Egyptian president to work for the release of the Blind Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman but if something happens to the Great Pyramids it might be a little hard for those who pretend Radical Islam is no threat to spin it away…

…but they will.

Mitt Romney gave a speech at the NAACP yesterday, he was booed for opposing Obamacare (widely reported), cheered for opposing gay marriage (widely ignored by the MSM) got a standing O at the end and his appearance is the fodder for a lot of talk from Rush Limbaugh to Politico (they misquote Limbaugh in their headline btw (surprise surprise) and Morning Joe…

…and none of it means a thing when it comes to black voters.

As everyone recognizes, a Romney speech to the NAACP will have almost zero impact on the number of African-Americans who cast ballots against President Obama

What Jennifer Rubin doesn’t say (and check out her excellent roundup of media commentary on the speech) is that what is going to matter is how the speech is reported to the Black Community by black media. And I don’t mean the folks that Lawrence O’Donnell suddenly discovered last night

The have been more than a few signals that Black Americans don’t need much of an excuse to stay home this time around. It is those members of the Black community Mitt’s message has to reach to be effective.

How will black media filter that message, THAT’s the 64,000 question.

Update: How does spin make a difference, here is a headline that will likely not appear in Black media:

Secretive Billionaire commits 5 million PAC dedicated to defeat popular national Black Officeholder.
