Further proof he’s a Democrat...
couldn’t have happened to a better guy!
see ya Mitt!
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.
Think we’ll see any MSNBC reporting on the KKK’s alterego, Rev Jeremiah Wright? /rhetorical
Goodbye whack left....Your toast is done!
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.
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, 18331898
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.

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.
Keep illegal SOUTH Americans in SOUTH America!
romney just got all the robert KKK byrd voters.
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.
Oh my. That’s some major macaca, Mitty!
Yeesh. Its almost enough to make me feel sympathy for old Flip Flop. If they keep this up, I may hold my nose and vote for him if he’s the nominee . . . .
Wasn’t the late Robert Byrd the Demoncrap Senator from WVa the last grand wizzer?
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.
Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton have apologized to Romney on behalf of MSNBC. Will wonders never cease?
Because the expression is too close to MSNBC’S slogan
“Keep America,enslaved with Lies”
