MSNBC’s Touré: Romney Engaging In The ‘Niggerization’ Of Obama [VIDEO] (Stay Classy, MSNBC!)
Mediaite ^ | 08/16/2012 | Andrew Kirell

Posted on 08/16/2012 3:18:00 PM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

On Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Cycle the group discussed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney‘s assertion that President Obama should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Co-host Touré saw what he believes to be explicit racial connotations beneath what Romney was saying, calling it the “niggerization” of the campaign.

“That really bothered me,” he said. “You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.”

“I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘niggerization,’” Touré said to the apparent shock of his co-panelists. “You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

Naturally this led to a battle between Touré and conservative co-host S.E. Cupp. She took particular issue with the fact that Touré admitted that VP Joe Biden‘s “chains” comments were divisive, but is now calling Romney a “racist” for saying the Obama campaign is “angry.”

“Do you see how dishonest that is?” she asked.

Touré denied calling anyone a racist, which prompted Cupp to say, “Certainly you were implying that Mitt Romney and the base will respond to this dog-whistle, racially-charged coding, and hate Obama, the angry black man?”

“Absolutely,” he replied.

“That’s so irresponsible,” Cupp answered back.

“This is not a revolutionary comment,” Touré said. “This is a constituency all-white party that rejects the black vote.”

“You have two white guys in Joe Biden and Mitt Romney,” Cupp clarified. “Joe Biden made the overtly racial comment and has a history of making bigoted remarks. Mitt Romney was responding to the comment. Yet he is the one responsible for the whole Republican history of racism in politics?”

“That’s not what Touré is saying,” co-host Krystal Ball interjected. “You’re twisting his words.”

“No, he can speak for himself,” Cupp shot back.

“He’s using the playbook Republicans have been using for decades now,” Touré concluded.

This “coding” thing is completely our of control. I would bet good money that pretty much anything Romney said, according to this racist moron, would somehow be considered code for some kind of racism. It just never ends.

The DNC sees the world through the lens of race. They have throughout their history and they continue to do so.

They can’t help themselves. Its who they are.

Toure’ has it precisely reversed. If you do not automatically see the world and the people in it in racial terms, you are probably a Republican. If you do, you are probably a Democrat. That is the great unspoken divider in American politics.

MSNBC makes North Korean state media seem calm and balanced by comparison. Sometimes I really think that a conservative, hyper-rich prankster set up the whole MSNBC network just to highlight leftist idiocy.

“He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. “

Yea right, as everyone at MSNBC does and has used “racial coding” and attempts to “access some really deep stereotypes” about “white” Conservative politicians.

As one black preacher has said about those people, they need to take the suggestion in one of Michael Jackson’s lyrics and “look in the mirror” instead of falsely attributing their own sins to everyone else.

Touré should be fired immediately. Demand it. if S.E.Cupp had said what he said, they would, but she has too much class for this JerrySpringer show on a network no one watches.

I don't get this continual insistence that we all speak in 'code'. I don't do 'code'. I have something to say, I just say it. Same applies to all of the Conservatives that I know.

Must be another leftist projection thing.

And I don't use slurs. I hear them from time to time, mostly out of blue collar Democrat types.

I get so very tired of being lied about.

Maybe this explains it. I’ve been having a really hard time making sense of nobama’s words. Now it appears my difficulty is caused by not knowing the right code words.

Can somebody please share these code words? Thanks.

If Romney doesn’t knock these racist accusations in the head, he might as well concede today. If he lets anyone get away with it, racist will find “racist connotations” in everything he says and does.

I guess all criticism of Obama is off the table now?

I objected to somebody using the words "angry Black man," especially as applied to somebody who's not very Black, but not it looks like the very word "angry" alone when applied to Obama is taken to imply "Black man."

When you reach that point, what can't be taken to mean "Black"? What can't be read as racial?

Does it work the other way around? Are criticisms of Romney to be taken as being appealing subliminally to anti-White or anti-Mormon prejudices?

They can’t see beyond themselves and consequently believe everyone is as helpless and pathetic as they are. Or, they believe everyone secretly once to grab a gun and shoot everyone. Or, get strung out on drugs. Or, have perverted sex with the neighbor boy. Or, in this case they hate other races so they assume whitey hates non-whites. They project their real feelings on to others.
Its one part envy, one part control freaks, one part covetous, and one, and one part never satified.
All wrap up in rationalization and justification.

Just a guess.:)

BSNBC, and Touré, are projecting, Crackerization on ME! I ain’t no Cracker, or an Ice Cream cone.. I’m a ‘Gorgonzola Meatball’, and Proud as Hell! YEAH!

Gorgonzola Meatball

1 12 lbs ground veal
1 lb ground beef
salt
pepper
2 cloves garlic (grated or minced)
1 egg yolk
2 parmigiano-reggiano (handfuls grated)
2 hand (plain bread crumbs)
3 tbsps sage leaves (sliced or finely chopped)

3 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
8 ozs gorgonzola
1 tbsp butter
2 bay leaves (fresh)
1 finely chopped onion
1 cup chicken stock
15 ozs crushed tomatoes
12 cup cream
1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2 Place meat in a mixing bowl and season with salt, pepper, add in garlic, eggs, cheese, bread crumbs and sage. Mix meat, roll into 8 large balls and arrange in a baking dish. Coat balls with 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil. Using the end of a wooden spoon, make an indentation half way into each ball and fill the cavity with some Gorgonzola. Bake until golden and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
3 Heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil and butter in a sauce pot over medium heat, add bay and onions and season with salt and pepper. Add chicken stock and tomatoes and heat through, stir in cream, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer to thicken slightly 8 to 10 minutes.
4 Ladle sauce into shallow bowls and top with big stuffed meatballs and potatoes alongside, if desired.

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs...

There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public.”

Unbelievable.

Americans are going to REJECT out-of-hand these asinine and disgusting words/people and the donkey they rode in on.

Americans just want to get up in the morning, go to work, raise their kids, and live and let live.

These RACE HUSTLERS must eat:

Race Krispies for breakfast
Race-A-Roni for lunch and
Race Pilaf and Pudding for dinner.

Guess what--Americans are SICK of it...and I guess America was NOT ready for a Black president if THIS is how it's going to go ad infinitum.

November cannot come soon enough. Americans--White, Black, Yellow, Red, Purple, Whatever--do not WANT this crap...

they want to just live and let live.

Exactly.

Team Obama used the race card against both Clinton and McCain in 2008 and had both them cowering in fear that the allegation of racism would stick.

Team Obama will use it as much as they can in the coming weeks. It will only get worse.

Like anybody but the 2-3% lunatic Homo fringe left even cares what this limp-wristed Black pervert thinks. I'm not convinced that there's a lower form of human on the planet than a race-baiting gay hate-mongerer.

Tourré ought to go back to prowling for crack money while hanging around outside the showers at the "YMCA", and leave the political commentary to the grown-ups. What a depraved, disgusting caricature of a person.

Only a racist could see that statement as racist...

So after the Obama reelection team said Romney killed a women, Romney can't call Obama on it for what it is: "division, hate, and anger"... gutter politics...

I hope Team Romney doesn't fall for this crap and take the bait to tone down their campaign so not to be accused of racism...which was Tour'e talking point anyway...

I for one would like to thank the left for giving us the WON. Lets face it, we were going to lose 2008 no matter what and no matter who we nominated. During that campaign the race card was played so frequently and in so many different ways...subtle, in your face, rapid fire...that we became desensitized. I remember phone banking for mclame and for the first time in my life being called a racist. It stung so bad that I was in tears. Now it just peeves me off. I suspect that many others have had similar experiences.

One of our resident lesbians in the dog park this am tried to bait me into an argument when she noticed that I took my Sarah bumper sticker off my car (hubby expects violence) and asked me why. I said “oh I will be voting obama this year”. The look on her face was priceless, something between shock tinged with dubious delight. When she questioned me I said “sure I will. Just so long as that new car gets here and he pays off my mortgage like he promised”. I would have never had the nerve to return fire on her like this had it not been for contest on who is going to be the most aggrieved about conservatives and what we stand for. They can all go stuff it. If people want to call me a “hater” they can go right ahead. We will all just have to pray that R&R in their much higher profile positions can resist the storm that is coming their way.
