MSNBC Allows Black Commentator Toure to Use N-Word to Describe Romney
Townhall.com ^ | August 19, 2012 | Crystal Wright

Posted on 08/19/2012 6:50:22 AM PDT by Kaslin

Vice-President Biden tells blacks, Romney’s “gonna put y’all back in chains.” Mitt Romney accuses Obama of running a campaign of “anger and division.” Then MSNBC host Toure charges Romney with engaging in the “niggerization” of Obama. WHAT? As my black father (note emphasis) said, “That’s the most unintellectual thing I’ve ever heard. Is he [Toure] making up words” ?

Toure’s making up words and spinning fiction! (Evidently, that’s what a former musical journalist turned political pundit does.) If Biden had included the “n-word” in his me (white) versus “you blacks” statement, Toure may have expressed mild outrage at the remarks. But since Biden serves our black president, Toure doesn’t consider Biden’s comments the “niggerization” of blacks.

Nigger or any derivative thereof is the basest, most racially charged word to call a black person or casually throw around and being black doesn’t give a person special permission to use it. Perhaps Toure has never been called the word nigger, otherwise he would not have uttered it with such ease on national television or have had the audacity to accuse Mitt Romney of engaging in “racial coding” which is code for racist politics.

Now that it’s become clear President Obama can’t run on a record of economic success, Democrats like Toure will resort to the only thing they have left in their arsenal, the Obama race card. Finally, on the stump, Romney is fighting back against Obama’s dirty campaign of lies and distortion.

Romney said: “His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency. This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like. Mr. President take your campaign of division, anger and hate back to Chicago.”

There is nothing untrue in Romney’s comments. As Michael Gerson wrote , “the demonization of Romney is a main element of its strategy, pursued by Obama’s closest associates and former employees.” Gerson reminds us Obama has engaged in racial pandering, intimidated Republican donors, and accused Romney of killing Joe Spotic’s wife, “which represents the crossing of an ethical line.”

Whether you are Romney or any other American, this looks like a campaign led by an “angry and desperate president,” sinking to new lows to win. Obama has been dividing America since he took office. This is why it’s shocking Toure falsely charged Romney of using “racial coding” to try to paint Obama as the stereotypical “angry black man.”

Obama has waged wars on class, gender, religion, and sexuality and now race. He doesn’t look like the “Black Jesus” of 2008, seeking to heal America or the “no-drama Obama, as Toure described him as.

Toure’s accusations were wildly irresponsible. Obama is “angry” because he’s failed miserably at being president but feels he deserves a second term just because of the color of his skin.

Toure went on to say: “This is part of the playbook against Obama. . .This is niggerization, you are not one of us and that you are like the scary black man, we are trained to fear.”

“This is typical GOP politics, Toure added, the “all white party that rejects the black vote.” No, Toure, the GOP isn’t the all white party and white people aren’t scared of Obama. Whites, blacks and other Americans are sick and tired of being sick and tired of Obama’s misguided policies.

If anyone is engaging in “otherization” politics, as Toure ranted, it’s Obama. From his days as a Senator, Obama put himself above everyone else, using his race to make people believe he was a special kind of black endowed with supernatural powers to heal America. What we’re seeing now is a man so absorbed in self, he can’t see he’s in over his head.

Another example of Obama’s stoking racial politics of “otherization,” was by his Truth Team surrogate Va. State Senator Louise Lucas, Va. State Senator Louise Lucas who accused Mitt Romney of speaking to folks “who don’t like a black man in the White House.” Racist talk is constantly flowing from Obama and his “Truth Team” not Mitt Romney.

I’ve been called nigger mostly by other blacks. In fact when I was in 2nd grade, I heard the word used at school by my black classmates and came home and called my little brother a nigger. My mother told me to never say it again and explained to me how heinous the word was and remains!

If MSNBC has any shred of decency, the network will fire Toure. Not only did he completely misrepresent Mitt Romney’s comments, he offended blacks like me, who’ve been called nigger and find the word both humiliating and disgusting. We know if Toure was white, the termination would have happened before the commercial break.

Mr. President take your campaign of division, anger and hate back to Chicago.
Good line. I hope he re-uses it and re-applies it to other things. Back to Chicago. Good enough. Can't really say back to Kenya, can we? (Even though it's what we're all thinking.)

The Mitt campaign would do well to ask “Exactly what do you mean by ‘niggerize’?”

It’s the color of Barack’s politics that is inherently offensive. Not the color of his skin.

Barack’s race card is just about maxed out.

Agreed! “Mr. President take your campaign...”could almost be his campaign slogan. Say it over and over in the same light that the libs use lines. People will start to get it if they hear it over and over, and it will drive the kenyan usurper nuts.

Since his other house is in Chicago that’s about as logical as anything short of Kenya (or Hell).

Republicans need to quote Toure liberally. Discuss the current topic raised by some journalists of the niggerization of Romney. Compare and contrast this with the niggerzation of Obama. Will this lead to the niggerzation of America? Would that be a good thing? What does Toure think? We want to know — What does MSNBC really think about niggerization? Please!

But being Democrat apparently does give that permission. Remember Robert Byrd (D-KKK)?

The gutter politics of the Obama campaign know no bounds (bottom?). The "race card" will be played whenever the opportunity presents itself. As the election approaches, the Obama people will get more desperate and play it more.

Pretty pathetic and telling; they can't run on their record, but I'm not even sure they would if they could. They seem to enjoy attacking and attempting to destroy their opponent. I guess that's what "Chicago politics" is really about.

The notion that “angry” is code for n***** is actually quite funny.

The only time I can remember “angry” being used extensively in political labeling was about 10 years ago, when it was part of the demonization of the “angry white male.”

So if “angry” is code for anything it should be referencing white guys.

Then it is time to stop mincing words, although it isn’t quite racism that many white people are feeling. The black race, comprising 13.5% of the US population, has been shoved down our throats. Our educational system has been altered, employment has been governed not by qualification, but civil rights, black crime is being excused, welfare assistance in the black community is vast, and now we can’t have an election without racism being invoked. No society can be designed solely for a minority race and flourish. We can thank Obama for taking us to a higher degree of disgust.

Touré is probably takes his name from Ahmed Sékou Touré, The Republic of Guinea’s tyrannical president who ruled from 1958 to 1984. During his rule, thousands of Guineans fled the country, and tens of thousands who couldn’t get out died in his concentration camps.

“Niggerazation” is shrill and shrill is the way people get when they see the brickwall getting closer.

I’ll keep posting this until people get it.

Anytime the race card is played, celebrate, as you have just won that debate.

When, especially the saul alinsky left, runs out of any debate points and cannot refute your position they play the race or hate card. These are the wild cards in their very limited 5th grade playground debate skills.

They get to the point where they know they have nothing and they reach into the time worn S.A. trick of race/hate cards.

YOU’VE WON! The race card is like the French surrender flag. Used way too often.

He was, and is, allowed to use that word, even though it supposedly conjures up all sorts of genetic memory for black people, precisely because he is, in fact, black. That's the ONLY reason. Just the mere invocation of the charge is tantamount to the ultimate ideological justfication of his argument and put-down of any dissent.

It is the same reason that black comedians are allowed to use it like toilet paper - willy nilly - to pepper their urban-hip routines whilst simultaneously mocking every white man/person they ever met, or didn't meet [likely].

It's all just one big double standard exhibition of in-your-face-whitey justice, just like what happened upon the OJ criminal trial verdict.

If we play our cards right we could have some fun with the liberals over what the MSNBC clown said.

When Joe Bite-me ( or any liberal playing the race card) says something like he did the other day, we can reply by saying they must be suffering from ‘Toure’s syndrome’.

Make it household term that that gets used every time the race card getd played.

The word “stole” has also now become a racist, dog-whistle, code-speak. The list gets longer every day.

If they can use a made up word like “niggerization” to describe the Romney campaign, we need to use the made up word “honkiazation” to describe obama campaign. Along with “truthatude” and “falsity”.

Romney’s people don’t even need to relply or ask for clarification. Their use of the word itself energizes their base that are voting for him anyway. And it helps to clarify to Joe 6 pack how unhinged the left has become.

Our press (talk radio, Fox, etc)should however ask and continue to ask for clarification from MSNBC. Keep their acceptance of the term in the spotlight.

Thank you for this great post, Kaslin—this says it all very succinctly. Obama has been over his head since he took his oath. Defend the Constitution? He’s too busy defending all the misfits and blowhards he’s appointed.

This Toure person called Mitt Romney a nigger? Then obviously it’s not a racial slur after all, and there’s no reason anybody should mince around referring to an “N-word.”

No no, Toure was accusing Mitt Romney of niggerising because he said 0bama is a blackpresident. Like saying the color black is racist

LAME Stream Media idiot Touré (born Touré Neblett, March 20, 1971) isn't sorry.
He's just been caught. That's all.
Well, he IS a sorry excuse of a commentator.
Here's another link to his Facebook page.
Tell this sorry excuse of a human being ... what you think of his so-called journalism.
