In response to RebelPundit’s latest coverage from Chicago’s urban-black community, where south side black residents criticize President Obama over amnesty, Fox News host and white liberal pundit Bob Beckel, (a staunch support of the president) challenged the authenticity of our coverage, calling it “selectively edited.”

The video was aired on Fox’s “The Five,” in a segment based on recent comments made U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who claimed once again that criticism of the president and himself are based on “racial animus.”

Beckel discredited the opinions of those seen in the video, saying, “whoever did it [the video], selectively edited it,” and that it was only “one tenth of one percent of Chicago blacks.”

At RebelPundit we believe in covering stories often overlooked and ignored by the mainstream media. In our coverage of the recent demonstration in front of the Chicago Police Department headquarters over the ongoing violence and murder plaguing the city, which led to the production of this video, we found the most interesting and newsworthy message that resonated from multiple residents in attendance. The strongest and most consistent message they voiced was their discontent with the president’s handling of the invasion of our southern border, the lack of interest he has, and how it relates to the ongoing daily struggle for Chicago’s black community.

RebelPundit was the only media outlet to attend the demonstration and provide a platform for the often ignored voices Chicago’s grassroots community. Its newsworthiness is proven by the 375,211 two day view count on YouTube at the time this story was published.

Here is the complete segment from Fox News, below are excerpts of how it played out:

Bob Beckel: The black base will be with Barack Obama. The selectively edited pieces there are blacks in Chicago.

Kimberly Guilfoyle: That’s not fair, Bob.

Beckel: Whoever did it selectively edited it.

Guilfoyle: Bob, why are you diminishing their voices and their ability as Americans to come forward and say what they think about where they live and how the president should do something?

Beckel: They can say what they want to want to say.

Greg Gutfeld: Because they’re black, Bob?

Guilfoyle: That’s why he doesn’t like it.

Beckel: No because the media, that you always complain about, is taking a few people and trying to make a story out of it, and it’s selective editing and we’re running selective editing.

Guilfoyle: That’s not true.

Gutfeld: These are a group of people that are saying–why don’t you concentrate on the stuff that’s going on in our communities….

Beckel: Right.

Gutfeld: ….and not being so concerned with people outside?

Guilfoyle: The problem is they keep focusing on everything they want to make it skin deep, you know, that’s it, they want to focus on skin color and racial animus….

Beckel: Oh please.

Guilfoyle: ….and minorities, because if you penetrate beneath the skin, then you are going to have to talk about the man’s qualifications and whether or not there is any leadership there or if he has any ideas, or any movement to do something to address this crisis.

Beckel: That is an outrageous statement, did you hear what she just said?

Guilfoyle: No it’s really true, that’s what Eric Holder is saying, he’s saying that any criticism of the president is based on a racial divide and racial animus in this country. He wants to take us back instead of coming forward.

Eric Bolling: Can I be honest with you Bob — he said it —  we used his words and then we backed it up with some people in Chicago, who frankly, honestly, 97% of the black community who voted, voted for Obama — he comes from Chicago, that’s his hometown, we played those because….

Guilfoyle: Skin color shouldn’t matter.

Bolling: …It was proof that it wasn’t just us being selective editing, we showed the full story.

Beckel: He said some people, and you took one tenth of one percent of Chicago blacks.

Bolling: No, Bob.

Guilfoyle: It’s just sad.

    Beckel is right. The black base will support Obama. After all, the same base along with the white Democrats, supported the rapist Bill Clinton. They would have elected him to a third term. They still esteem Clinton as the most admired man in America. The video shows, however, something disturbing to Democrat pundits, that the black community is not totally corrupt and intellectually bankrupt. Rebel Pundit has exposed that which the Democrat press hopes to suppress, that rational and moral leadership does exist within the black community.

      George Kocan, Monica Lewinsky was 22 years old when she and President Clinton had their sexual relationship. Was the relationship inappropriate? Absolutely yes. I can say that with authority because I practiced employment law for over 25 years. https://web.archive.org/web/20… Was it rape? No! A woman who is 22 years old can consent to a sexual relationship with her boss. And Lewinsky did consent. That is obvious based on her statements over the past 20 years.

      It’s funny, George, how I hear praise for blacks and their points of view from people like you, only when their views happen to coincide with yours.
      Also, you sound like a complete tool when you try to transform Pres Clinton and Monica Lewinsky’s consensual little romp into rape.

        I am sure you praise everyone you disagree with. Did you read what you wrote. Clinton was the president, Monica was 23 and at a disadvantage, he was her boss, twice her age, married, and the most powerful man on the planet. Being a women who embarrassed Hilliary she must be done away with. Typical liberal behavior, if she had an abortion she would be a hero.

        All you say about Pres Clinton is true: he was the most powerful man in the world; Monica was his subordinate; she was very young. It is also true that before she left for Washington, she reportedly told her friends that “I’m going to the White House to get my presidential knee pads.”. So yes, Pres Clinton was totally out of line in his behavior, but Monica can not be portrayed as a young woman who was coerced into engaging sexually with her boss. She aggressively pursued Clinton and often bragged to friends about the things she had got up to, with the president. http://www.nndb.com/people/588/000025513/

        So pardon me if I don’t accept the idea that Clinton raped Monica. I know it’s hard for some people to believe that Monica was actually thrilled to engage in such behavior with the president. Of course, in the end, she was the one called names and demeaned. They both apparently had a good time, so it was sad that she bore the brunt of people’s disgust.

        Aside from all that, can you explain to me the stupidity of your thinking that ANYONE would proclaim a woman to be a hero because she had an abortion? Really? Anti-abortionists like you need to seek help, you seem to have lost all sense of reason.

    It’s not about race it’s about helping the Black People and get off that darn Goff course and vacations that cost more than a college education.
