When will the left give up this boogeyman of the KKK? When was the last time anyone saw or heard of the Klan?? If they’ve been entirely absent in the era of Obama, I’d have to say it’s a long spent force.

For the record, the House Un-American Activities Committee was started in the 1930s to combat the KKK. So it is both American and un-American.

Did the anchor know that the KKK used that slogan or did someone report that to him?

As much as I dislike Romney I refuse to attack him from the left.

Mitt will now use this comparison in the MSM in order to rally sympathy support from the Right, despite his bad record. Perhaps he was adopting an old KKK slogan so that the MSM would go balistic and he could get that sympathy support. Who knows? Who cares? Don’t be fooled. He’s still Mitt.

This is nothing...If he winds up the GOP nominee expect to have to defend all the violent, blood thirsty, racist DOCTRINES taught by FLDS/LDS Founders, like this one.

“Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.”-FLDS/LDS "Prophet" Brigham Young, LDS Published Journal of Discourses 10:109

"...if any man mingles his seed with the seed of Cane the ownly way he could get rid of it or have salvation would be to Come forward & have his head Cut off & spill his Blood upon the ground. It would also take the life of his Children. . . ."-FLDS/LDS "prophet" Brigham Young, recorded in Wilford Woodruff's Journal, 1833–1898

ROMNEY MUST NOT WIN THE PRIMARIES !!

Willard’s money should have bought him smarter minions that would have known enough to vet ad slogans... If this takes him out, I won’t be upset about it. No Willard, no way - not ever.

Geez. MSLSD has a bunch of whack jobs working their. Always tying everything to racism even though they hired the biggest racist for his own show. Rev Al. This Thomas Roberts bio I found is an embarrassment. Everything in it is so Commie Pinko.

Thomas Roberts is an award-winning journalist and anchors MSNBC Live on weekdays at 11am. Roberts also serves as a fill-in host on MSNBC’s “First Look” and NBC’s TODAY. Roberts was made an official member of MSNBC’s dayside team in December 2010, after having served as a freelance anchor for several months. Prior to his addition to MSNBC’s dayside team, Roberts served as a correspondent for CBS News. He also contributed to several entertainment shows including “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider.” Prior to that, Roberts was a news anchor for CNN Headline News. Roberts is an award-winning journalist, having received a 2002 Emmy nomination and a Virginia Associated Press award for his work on the documentary, “Parvo Puppies.” He also received an Edward R. Murrow award in 2001 for a documentary that he produced titled, “When Parents Don’t Pay.” Roberts has also been honored for his work as an advocate in the LGBT community, and was recipient of the prestigious Visibility Award from the Human Rights Campaign in October 2011. Roberts is a graduate of McDaniel College (formerly Western Maryland College). He resides in New York City.

So if the KKK used a slogan, does that make the slogan evil?

If the KKK said “God Bless America”, would we be wrong to say that.

I think “Keep America America” is a good slogan regardless of who used it in the past. It’s better than “Change”, but I still won’t vote for Romney, irregardless of his slogan.

If the Drudge Report hadn’t been watching no one would have seen this.

No one (not even libs) watch MSNBC.

OK, MSNBC, let’s run all of obama’s speeches through a computer and find matching phrases spoken by KKK members through the years. Then we have proof that obama is a white supremecist and none of the black folks will vote for him. Go for it! Oh, wait! They LIKE obama.

These people are so hopelessly deranged.

Obama’s minister of over twenty years, the Reverend Wright, has more in common with the KKK than anyone besides David Duke. A coincidental similarity in a slogan is not code language. And MSDNC’s efforts to link Romney to the KKK and while they ignore Obama’s spiritual roots in racist religious practice show their true cynical nature. They don’t care about racism as long as it is going to keep them in power.

Given that Romney is running on the basis of being “the most electablie, most likely to beat Obama” candidate, his campaign has been a mess.

It’s actually starting to look like Romney is doing an even worse job of running his campaign than John McCain did.

The real issue is why MSNBC keeps digging into the KKK archives for ideas.

Isn’t it funny but MSNBC loved Senator Byrd who was the grand poobah, chief in chief of the KKK. So it is all right to actually be a white bigot, just don’t hint at it.
