Keith Ellison Opponent Explains Elusive Nature Of ‘Facts’ And Quotes To Lucky Reporter

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Did you know he's MUSLIM, also too?Have you ever wondered how people in the public eye feel when they are blatantly misrepresented by the media? Well, wonder no longer! They feel sad! You can see this in the following amazing transcript between Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison’s Republican opponent, Chris Fields, and lucky CityPages reporter Andy Mannix.

Chris Fields: “I just want to point your attention to a few things that are blatantly misrepresented.”
City Pages: “In my post?”
Fields: “Yes, in your post. I did not explicitly call Keith a reverse racist. I didn’t. I didn’t.”
CP: “Ok, I’m looking at the ad right now, it says, ‘reverse racism.’ And there’s a picture of Keith Ellison next to it.”
Fields: “Ok, it says two words. What about the rest of the words there? I mean, do they count? And I’m not trying to be confrontational here –”

Reader, would it shock you to learn that Mr. Fields does in fact go on to be confrontational? US TOO!

CP: “So you’re trying to tell me that you’re not calling Keith Ellison a reverse racist?”

Fields: “It says, ‘Does Keith–’”

CP: “Yeah, ‘Does Keith Ellison practice reverse racism and racial politics?’”

Fields: “You decide. You decide.”

CP: “And then you’re trying to tell me that in this literature it’s not supposed to be answering that question for the people that are reading it?”

Fields: “I’m putting a set of facts out there, just like everybody else. And I’ll tell you this much –”

CP: “No, no, no. Let me read another part of this. ‘Keith Ellison has a double standard for justice: one for blacks, one for whites. That’s just wrong.’ I mean, c’mon, you’re not gonna tell me that you’re not trying to say that he’s a reverse racist. Why even introduce the term reverse racism?”

Fields: “Here’s the thing, Andy. If we’re going to talk about facts — facts are facts. I said, factually, I did not call him a racist. That’s what I’m saying. And then if you want to talk about the actual issue itself, do you believe, Andy, in your heart, mind, and soul, that if Brian Terry were black, and this were the Bush administration, and the attorney general were John Ashcroft – if those were the cast of players, do you believe that they would have walked out?”

It goes on — quite enjoyably! — from there. But we can all agree that Mannix should be drummed out of CityPages at once and posthaste for saying Mr. Fields called Rep. Ellison a reverse racist when those were only two words, next to his picture! This is just a journalism science fact, and it is so obvious we shouldn’t even have to say it, but there we are. Because ethics. Shame, Mr. Mannix. For shame, sir.

"Does Chris Fields still beat his wife?" You decide! You decide!

bikerlaureate August 2, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Thank you for putting "a set of facts out there, just like everybody else."

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 6:44 pm

"Did Chris Fields' wife run into his fists repeatedly?"*
You decide.
I"m just puttin' out something that might be a fact but isn't but could be.
Again, it's up to you to decide.

*Not intended to be a factual question.

glasspusher August 2, 2012 at 3:57 pm

How about seeing "shut the fuck up" and only taking "the fuck"? Clearly taken out of context.

JudasPeckerwood August 2, 2012 at 3:57 pm

I have the deepest reverse respect for Chris Fields's reverse integrity.

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Like Mitt Romney, he was retroactive about it.

Tommy1733 August 2, 2012 at 4:33 pm

We are through the looking glass people.

BoatOfVelociraptors August 2, 2012 at 4:44 pm

That's exactly the thing a left-err-rightist would say.

GunToting[Redacted] August 2, 2012 at 6:36 pm

I KNEW it was the reverse racists. Even when it wasn't.

chascates August 2, 2012 at 3:57 pm

There are lots of words in that ad. They can be used to make any number of sentences.

coolhandnuke August 2, 2012 at 3:58 pm

Hey Chris Fields, two words–Fuck You.

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 2, 2012 at 4:04 pm

But there are other words around those two words. How do we know what "Fuck You" means?

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 7:01 pm

It was a factual "Fuck You". Unless it wasn't but could still be.

BaldarTFlagass August 2, 2012 at 3:58 pm

This appears to be the conversational equivalent of an out-of-body experience.

bobbert August 2, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Chris Fields appears to be having a continuing out-of-mind experience.

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 7:03 pm

I do believe both are pretty much the same thing.

miss_grundy August 2, 2012 at 3:59 pm

If you are going to call someone a reverse racist, you better explain using facts. If you don't have facts backing you up then you are not being factual, you are just a lying rat bastard.

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Who says that lying rat bastards can't use facts. Or a set of facts? Howabout a set of facts wrapped up in a pack of lies? Or a pack of lies nestled in the bosom of facts? What about the smell of GOP lies with a taint of truth?

I'm just playing around with the latest GOP-speak, so forgive me.

Boojum August 2, 2012 at 8:31 pm

How about we wrap the facts in wet newspapers and pack our lies in bubble wrap?

Edit: I have no idea what that means.

barto August 2, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Curious that Republicans aren't more supportive of victims' rights, since they are always playing the victim.

HistoriCat August 2, 2012 at 4:46 pm

They're afraid of the competition.

zippy_w_pinhead August 2, 2012 at 5:32 pm

they are supportive of themselves. but as we all know, everyone else who has ever been a victim was just milking the system…

Willardbot9000_V2.5 August 3, 2012 at 1:44 am

My favorite is when they denounce the "culture of victimhood" perpetrated by the left. I mean, we cannot go a day without some dumb rightwing bullshitter whining about being victimized, and I don't think it means what they think it means. Like here, Chris Fields is going to be a whining butthurt victim the next time some right wing douchecanoe has him on the radio, but let's face it: the reporter was only quoting his ad. In the immortal words of Newt the wife Slayer: "anyone who quotes what I said is lying"…so says the worlds biggest VICTIMS of their own bullshit: Republicans.

Major Thom August 2, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Could this mean that Sarah Palin is a reverse intellectual?

glasspusher August 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm

That's a good point. Just because I saw her picture with the two words "dumb bitch" next to it doesn't mean anything!

Jus_Wonderin August 2, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Oh, there must be a deck of those. I saw the one with "stupid cunt" next to her picture.

Biff August 2, 2012 at 4:01 pm

I can imagine that far more readily than reverse cowgirl.

Jus_Wonderin August 2, 2012 at 4:22 pm

I learn something EVERY day here.

Tommy1733 August 2, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Come on dude – why did you have to make me picture that? So much for dinner.

Boojum August 2, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Rawhide!

JustPixelz August 2, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I can clear this up. On Chris Fields' campaign site he says

Sadly, Keith Ellison and his cronies in the Congressional Black Caucus practice reverse racism and racial politics all the time.

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:05 pm

You should probably email that to Andy Mannix.

bobbert August 2, 2012 at 4:24 pm

But, but, that doesn't mean he called him a "reverse racist". Just that he is practicing to be one. Ha Ha!!!!

ThankYouJeebus August 2, 2012 at 5:11 pm

It says right there that he's sad about it. It's Keith Ellison's fault that he was forced to say anything at all.

kittensdontlie August 2, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Sure 'reverse racism' is two words, but what about the other eighteen words…don't they count against the two, leaving us with a sentence containing sixteen words devoid of racist overtone?!

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 7:41 pm

"We don't practice reverse racism. No, we have integrity so we practice the right kind of racism. It's the American Way. Patriot. American. Flag. That's Chris Fields."

Willardbot9000_V2.5 August 3, 2012 at 1:46 am

hah…that is so full of win. "White privilege done the American way. Anyone who says otherwise is an obvious racist, scummy minorities. We are the GOP."

Biff August 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Oh for fuck's sake.

ChernobylSoup August 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm

If you mention Trayvon Martin without holding a moment of silence for every white person who has ever died, you're race baiting.

Biel_ze_Bubba August 2, 2012 at 9:06 pm

The important thing is to observe those moments consecutively.

Schmannnity August 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm

When is Bachmann going to focus on the relentless plot of dumb asses infiltrating all levels of government?

vasty_derp August 2, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I asked her, and she said, "Huh?"

Butch_Wagstaff August 2, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Yes, what about the the creeping menace of Dumassria law? It is an issue I'm really concerned about it but why don't our legislators address it? I mean, it's clearly right there in the Quacky'ron that America should be conquered in the name of some sandal-wearing freak who had an entourage of 12 men.
Then, a few hundred years after this freak dies, some nerf herders, under the influence of dehydration and malnutrition, started telling people about him. And they didn't even KNOW him. Then they started writing about shit he did that he didn't even do.
(I've taken some liberty with the history of the Gospels. I don't care. I just wanted to use a "nerf herder" reference."

Texan_Bulldog August 2, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Poor Andy. If his boss tells him he has to interview Shelly Bachmann next, I suspect he'll go drown himself in one of those 10K lakes.

glasspusher August 2, 2012 at 4:01 pm

That's what individual choice is all about!

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Yes, you get to choose the lake you'll commit suicide in! In a liberal socialist society, they'll assign you a lake.

glasspusher August 2, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Why would anyone want to live in a single lake provider society?

Kid_Charlemagne August 2, 2012 at 4:10 pm

I loved that Mannix show when I was a kid. He always drove the badassest of badass cars.

Jus_Wonderin August 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Wasn't it a Quinn Martin Production? I bet they were Fords.

Edit: I was wrong. Desilu.

BaldarTFlagass August 2, 2012 at 4:18 pm

According to Wiki, it was Desilu. I remember mostly Mopars – Plymouth Cudas and Dodge Challengers and such.

Chet Kincaid_ August 2, 2012 at 4:07 pm

And he always wore the swingingest '70s sports jackets: http://www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/data/1997/

BaldarTFlagass August 2, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I think he rocked the turtleneck/sportcoat look too on occasion.

"Is Chris Fields a double-secret reverse racist, who also doesn't understand basic concepts like 'facts?' You decide…"

Goonemeritus August 2, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Does Chris Fields rape and behead adorable puppies, you decide.

Puppy raping is wrong!

vasty_derp August 2, 2012 at 4:20 pm

He's never denied it!

Guppy August 2, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Unless he drops them off at a playground after.

rickmaci October 18, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I think I recently read something about that on an internet blog post.

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:04 pm

"I'm Chris Fields, and I approve this message. Maybe. It doesn't really say what you think it says, and there's lots of words, so let's not focus on the five or six that get under your skin, mmmmmmmmmmmK?"

Lionel[redacted]Esq August 2, 2012 at 4:05 pm

Does Rush Limbaugh like to get blow jobs from Domenican boy sex slaves?

Sure, concentrate on the two words blow jobs. But All I'm doing is raising the issue. Let the people decide.

Jus_Wonderin August 2, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Here, in Olympics season, I believe a reverse racism has a difficulty level of 3. Many of the athletes use that technique in early rounds so as rack up points and then use simpler techniques in an effort to make it to the finals.

OhDeerMee123 August 2, 2012 at 4:09 pm

That is SO shariah. Way to double-secret ju-jitsu that evil muslin, Chris.

RedneckMuslin August 2, 2012 at 4:09 pm

You're a dickhead. Facts are facts.

BaldarTFlagass August 2, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Jon Stewart had a piece on this kind of shit a few years back, I think he raking Fox over the coals about that question mark thing. "Is your mother a whore? I'm not saying she is, just asking…"

OhDeerMee123 August 2, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Practicing racism makes you a racist as much as practicing christianity makes you Christ, right Chris?

Limeylizzie August 2, 2012 at 5:15 pm

OK, i just read that as "Practicing Dentistry makes you Christ". So I am laughing like a fool.

And turning, the Lord didst stay the hand of Mary the Hygienist, and said unto him, "why seekest thou an anesthetic? What thou sayest hurts thee, I have already removed." And the Lord didst show him the tooth which was already in His hand. And feeling that the corrupt tooth was gone, the man afflicted with a toothache didst fall down and worship Him.

Limeylizzie August 2, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Excellent!

I didn't even realize that was still a question.

Pragmatist2 August 2, 2012 at 4:15 pm

News release fro Field's Press Secretary:
The CP completely misreads the ad. In truth and as anyone can see Mr. Fields was calling on all Americans, including Mr. Ellison, to "reverse racism." "Reverse" is, of course, a verb as well as san adjective and we all believe that racism should be reversed.

HistoriCat August 2, 2012 at 4:52 pm

They should have gone with the typo defense – "that should be 'reject' … we want Mr. Ellison to reject racism"

LesBontemps August 2, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Also, I'm pretty sure I didn't explicitly call Chris Fields's mom a whore. I was just asking if she exchanges sex for money.

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:24 pm

I just said she practices whoredom.

Clearly, that means she's not a whore since she has to still practice.

BaldarTFlagass August 2, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I also like the stencil-style font they used for the word "RACISM." Kind of implies the use of spray paint, which implies graffiti, which implies urban. Or I could be really reaching here.

TribecaMike August 2, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Either that or they were trying to remind white folks of "Whites Only" public accommodations during Jim Crow, a time when whites suffered so much.

MumbletyInFlight August 2, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I daresay, this transcript of someone challenging a politician on his own record seems frighteningly close to actual journalism in our post-9/11 world…

valthemus August 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Are Republicans racists? Are they fascists? Are they anti-American extremists who worship Satan? Are they aliens from the planet Nebulon? Do they inject venom into female virgins to liquefy their internal organs and have dirty, nasty dead girl sex with the corpses? Is insane speculation the best way to spread lies about people? Do GOPers, perhaps, hope to escape lawsuits by phrasing ridiculously outlandish accusations in the form of questions?

vasty_derp August 2, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Yep.

Chet Kincaid_ August 2, 2012 at 4:55 pm

It is extremely hurtful and libelous that you would obtain that meaning from that particular arrangement of words!!

TribecaMike August 2, 2012 at 4:29 pm

We should kick out all the minorities and go back to the simpler good old days when the micks hated the pollacks and the pollacks hated the krauts.

What the hell does "reverse racist" even mean?

BoatOfVelociraptors August 2, 2012 at 4:56 pm

If you hear the dogwhistle, it's the fear of old rich white dudes that someday every minority might enact the enforcement part of the golden rule.

It's implicit in the language. There's 'good ol racism', but then there's this 'reverse racism', which is just perverse.

Chet Kincaid_ August 2, 2012 at 4:57 pm

It's like "white slavery". When a minority practices it against Earl Whiteguy, it's 10 times worse than regular, Benign Racism.

TootsStansbury August 2, 2012 at 5:04 pm

I was afraid that's what it meant. I tune out when I hear the term like it's one of those corporate-speak meaningless buzz words. Only this is a dog vuvuzula.

It's like "reverse cowgirl," only moreso.

It's what gets Glenn Beck fired from Fox News even though he averages over 3 million viewers. It's awesome. Behold, the Reverse Racism! (Use it for good, like getting rid of Glenn Beck).

actor212 August 2, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I get the distinction Fields is making but he ought to be more obvious about it.

He's not saying that Ellison is practicing reverse racialism because he doesn't know better. He's saying that Ellison knows better but is cynically playing the race card since he knows it will get him an advantage.

He's still a fucking obtuse assholic idiot, because Ellison is clearly not even practicing reverse racism.

Pardon me, I mean he's practicing fucking obtuse assholic idiotism.

Ruhe August 2, 2012 at 4:37 pm

So Brian Terry comes into it because…? Because by failing to become AG under Obama and thereby have the power to more vigorously pursue the investigation into Terry's death and how that relates to "Fast and Furious" Ellison is obviously being reverse racist against a dead ATF officer. And don't say that's preposterous! Remember, Obama is a black Muslim, Ellison is a black Muslim so naturally they are totally best buds and if Ellison wanted to get into the AG's office and do the right thing by Terry he totally could have done that but he didn't so he's a reverse racist! QED stupid libtards.

Biel_ze_Bubba August 2, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Can you get Glenn Beck to outline that on his blackboard for us?

viennawoods13 August 2, 2012 at 4:40 pm

And do you believe, Andy, that if Michael Jordan were white, and this were the Martin Sheen administration, because say there really HAD BEEN a Martin Sheen administration, and this was it, and the attorney general had been…oh…Ruth Buzzy, and the Secretary of Dental Appliances–because let's say there was one–was Bill "Moose" Skowron, and the capital of Ohio was Rome, Italy, do you really believe that Keith Ellison wouldn't be black? Because I'm saying he would. No more, no less. I truly believe that, in my heart of hearts."

So now the right wing nutz will stand on the body of Brian Terry to try to score a cheap political point.

They were silent when G. Gordon Liddy said "Shot the AFT agents in the head – they wear bulletproof vests."

They didn't say anything when the NRA called AFT agents "jack-booted thugs."

Now this.

Chow Yun Flat August 2, 2012 at 5:43 pm

I like the idea of "reverse racism". Not that it really exists, of course-an action is either racist (prejudice or discrimination directed against someone of a different race based on hatred or intolerance of that race) or it isn't.

HOWEVER–it admits the premise that (in Amerikkka) that white racism is real, ubiquitous and enduring so that anything done by non-whites has to be seen in the context of white racism.

Chet Kincaid_ August 2, 2012 at 5:48 pm

It is like "assless chaps", in that regard.

DerrickWildcat August 2, 2012 at 5:48 pm

He is a racist in an unacceptable way that people are traditionally racist and that is far worse than acceptable racism.

Nostrildamus August 2, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Reverse racism is just wrong. Like reverse peristalsis.
