In a highly opinionated and left-leaning article, The New York Times is accusing the newly freed Roger Stone of using the word “negro” in an offensive way on a radio program recently in an interview with a Black progressive broadcaster, and the left media circus ensued, starting with a confusing report, that smacked of nothing more than political revenge against Stone for having his sentenced commuted by their political opponent, President Donald J.Trump.
“If I insulted Mr. Kelly when did he then continue to kiss my ass for the next 40 minutes ?” Stone said.
The New York Times said that “Negro is a racial slur”, so nothing else matters to the left-leaning media.
Roger Stone used a racial slur on a live radio show on Saturday while speaking with the host, Mo'Kelly, who is Blackhttps://t.co/NPYj0vMpxh

We contacted Stone and asked him for a statement.
“In the interview with Mo’Kelly I urged the President to remove Cannabis from the schedule 1 List at DEA- before the election- the REAL NEWS. Instead of breaking real news Kelly elected to defame me,” Stone told us.
Other Conservatives noted the double standards and the use of the media as a weapon against political opponents when they create dramatic stories for revenge.
I just spoke to Roger Stone and he says he didn't say Negro. Roger has been a champion for minorities through out his career. Fighting for Affirmative Action, etc..
If Negro is a racial slur, then why does the United Negro College Fund still use the word Negro in their title?

The following is the unedited and complete statement from Stone:
STATEMENT OF ROGER STONE
“The audio is the audio? He’s right. His studio engineer can very clearly be heard using the alleged epitaph after he cut my sound feed off three times and is berated by Kelly. Why is it that everyone on the left must label anyone who disagrees with them or Supports President Trump as “a racist? This is a smear designed to boost Mr. Kelly’s meager ratings at my expense. My recording of the interview is garbled, has cross-talk from another radio show and cut off my sound feed three times. If I insulted Mr. Kelly when did he then continue to kiss my ass for the next 40 minutes ?
When asked what the President should do to win re-election I urged him to move cannabis from the Schedule 1 list at DEA- which is newsworthy but Kelly was more interested in smear than making news.
Anyone who understands my disagreement with President Ronald Reagan over his failure to extend the voting rights act, my continued support for the Nixon administration policy of affirmative action, my 30-year opposition to the racist war on drugs and my continuing campaign for a pardon for the early civil rights leader Marcus Garvey who was railroaded by the FBI and my praise for President Trump’s 2nd chance Act knows I despise racism!
Mr. Morris W. O’Kelly needs to invest in better quality radio equipment that doesn’t lose his guests in the middle of an interview. The equipment really doesn’t cost that much these days.
Second, Mr. O’Kelly needs a good peroxide cleaning of the wax in his ears because at no time did I call him a negro. That said, Mr. O’Kelly needs to spend a little more time studying black history and institutions. The word negro is far from a slur.
The African-American, Harvard University graduate student, and respected sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois advocated for the use of the term negro. Du Bois argued that the term was “etymologically and phonetically” sound.
The United Negro College Fund is a philanthropic organization that funds scholarships for black students and general scholarship funds for 37 private historically black colleges and universities.I doubt any of the students receiving funds from this institution feel deemed because the institution has the word negro within it.
It is time we stop listening to the hustlers and distortions such as Mr. O’Kelly who want to create a racial divide and remember the wise words of Booker T. Washington, the African-American adviser to multiple presidents of the United States:”Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
I am no longer unconstitutionally gagged and will bring actions against those who defame me. Yes, even Roger Stone can be defamed.”
