That Was Quick …… I Guess They Assumed No One Was Watching

So, I saw this, and was going to post on it, right before I got busy with something else.

MSNBC: HARRIS-PERRY AND PANEL RIDICULE MITT ROMNEY’S BLACK GRANDSON

n a nauseating display of mean-spirited ignorance, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel of five ridiculed Mitt Romney’s black grandchild as something “that’s not like the others.” The MSNBC segment was a look back at 2013, and for some reason a Romney family photo that shows former Massachusetts governor with a grandchild on each knee was cherry-picked for mockery.

The only apparent reason for the ridicule was purely based on the race of Kieran Romney, the governor’s adopted grandchild who happens to be black.

There’s a video, at the link above.

You can hear panelist Pia Glenn singing the lyrics to the “Sesame Street” song, “One of these things doesn’t belong here.” After finishing the ditty, Glenn says, “And that little baby, front and center, would be the one.”

Dean Obeidallah then attacks the child as token, ““I think this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person.”

Throughout, Harris-Perry chuckles along approvingly. ……

With just two days left in the year, MSNBC apparently decided that Martin Bashir calling for someone to defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth and Toure labeling CNN’s Don Lemon (a black man) as a “white leader” just weren’t low enough.

Nothing is lower than publicly humiliating a child, though.

As it turns out, someone was watching.  Twitchy has a couple posts up about it.  Well, maybe more than a couple.

MSNBC: the network that thinks “golf” is a racist code word, but mocking black children adopted by white families is awesome.

As noted above, Scott Brown chimed in …..

@ritescenter “me and Melissa”? Really? You think I’m a producer on the show? You think I chose that photo & new it was coming?

You see, because she didn’t know it was coming, the only way to react is to pick out the “other” in the Romney family photo, and make sure everyone knows that there is that “other” in the photo.  Apparently, she doesn’t consider this “mocking”.

@ritescenter Yes,I sang the song. There are many children in the pic & only 1 black child. I don’t see that as mocking or attacking the baby

This response was probably best ……

@PiaGlenn So if you were in a pic with several white people and someone sang that song it wouldn’t be mocking or attacking you?

I’m appalled and awe struck.  You see, many of us have always known the leftists of organizations such as MSNBC were closet racists.  But, rarely do you see it in such an apparent manner. 

The problem these lunatics have isn’t with the child of color.  It is that a child of color can be raised in a loving and happy home with *gasp* white Republicans. 

And, this is the essence of them.  They are part of the grievance industry.  They wail, and rail and throw out the racist term towards conservatives and Repubs and anyone else who aren’t like them. 

When you see families like the Romney’s and the Robertsons, they have to attack.  It blows up their entire reason for existence.  While loving and caring people are actually doing something to help extinguish the last dying flames of racism in this nation, the grievance community screeches and bitterly cling to the notion that racism is prevalent throughout our society, other than mostly being confined to the ignorant minds of the leftists.

    Somebody tell multimillionaire UNESCO flagship globalist Angelina Jolie and ur-leftist hag Madonna please what MSNBC thinks of adoptions.

    • suyts says:

      Yes, well, that’s marginally okay, as long as they’re not Repubs or conservatives or something. Then it’s okay to engage in racism, because they’re the “others”.

    The question is: Does someone who wears tampons for earrings, sink or float when water boarded?

  4. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    MSNBC . . . Home of race baiting racists.

    Why she is till employed is because of her race, because she is a talentless twit.

  5. Me says:

    They are projectionist, and they think everyone else thinks the way they do.

  6. NomoreGore says:

    Libstains go thru life in a guilt ridden tantrum to cover their self loathing. They know they are lesser beings, and rather than step up to improve themselves, they lash out. A study not that long ago had found that the dipshits carrying cloth bags to take their groceries home were statistically far more likely to shoplift. The cloth bag apparently made them feel better about their larcenous tendencies.

    They are one thing and one thing only. A skin color. Not American. Not human. A skin color.

    the gist here being that these publications promote things like a living wage and drop hammers on corporations like Walmart and McDonald’s for not paying their employees enough don’t practice what they preach.

    The sad part is that it is now expected from the left and is not surprising.
