Marble claims media “panders to its liberal base”

marble on media 3Colorado State Sen. Vicki Marble (R-Fort Collins), who falsely claimed last month that she was misquoted by a Boy Scott, stepped up her complaints about the “liberal media” in a Facebook post last month.

“As the liberal media panders to its liberal base, they continue fanning the flames of hatred and racism against conservatives of all colors and American principles and values,” Marble apparently wrote last month in a Facebook post obtained from a source.

Specifically, Marble called KMGH-TV, Channel 7, “lame.”

Marble didn’t return an email seeking an explanation, but her attack on the media may stem from frustrations over press coverage of a speech she gave to a group of Boy Scouts in October.

Marble responded to the scout, fifth graderAmes Mayfield, that he she’d made no such statement.

“I didn’t, that was made up by the media,” Marble told Mayfield in the den. “So, you want to believe it? You believe it. But that’s not how it went down. I didn’t do that. That was false. Get both sides of the story.”

In fact, Marble made the following statement during a 2013 hearing: “When you look at life expectancy, there are problems in the black race. Sickle-cell anemia is something that comes up. Diabetes is something that’s prevalent in the genetic makeup, and you just can’t help it.

“Although I’ve got to say, I’ve never had better barbecue and better chicken and ate better in my life than when you go down South and you, I mean, I love it. Everybody loves it.”

The Scout was eventually booted from his den, but allowed to continue with another group of Boy Scouts.

    Sorry Jason, I had more than my fill of looney, wacko, shit-for-brains last year, I refuse to begin the new year with more of the same . . . 

    . . . you should have held your coverage of this delusional nut job for at least a day.

      You're being incredibly insensitive to the racism that's apparently been directed against white conservatives.

      Also, your privilege is showing. Some of us have to represented by that appalling sack of crazy 24/7/365 🙁

    There are many candidates in Windsor capable of crowding Vicki "Miss Oil and Gas 2017" Marble off her bench in Windsor.

    Carrie Ann Lucas, running for Ward 5 on the Windsor town board.

    Windsor Democrats lists elected candidates for 2017/2018:

    Don Trinks, current mayor, candidate for State Rep, District 5

    Jody Terranova, deputy mayor

    and Town Council members:

    Joe McAuliffe
    Jill Jackson-Jenkins
    Rich O’Reily

    President Leonard Lockhart
    Vice President David Furie  Maryam Khan                      Jim Dobler
    Nuchette Black-Burke

    Lawrence Jaggon         Steven Naraine

    So  Marble really should try to be more in step with her constituents. Red counties and towns are becoming much more blue as people become disillusioned with the Republican agenda.

    Marble seems to have become the designated Musgrave of the Leg. All "God, Guns and Gays" all the time.

    I think the gal has lost her marbles.  I don't know of any real Republicans who squirm and cry victim when their racist rants get exposed to the sunlight.  They all man up and double down on being proud racists.  Poor Vickie is the girlie victim of a vicious mouth who doesn't want to admit that she is a poor representative of the Prince of Peace.  Phony baloney Evangelicals and their perpetual victimness.

    She really channels Trump in her comments.  SAD.
