Hilarious: MSNBC host likens word 'ObamaCare' to n-word
American Thinker ^ | 12/09/2013 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 12/09/2013 7:07:56 AM PST by SeekAndFind

MSNBC is the gift that keeps on giving, serving up propaganda intended to benefit the far left, but which in its absurdity repels people grounded in reality. Now, one of its hosts, Melissa Harris-Perry, already familiar to AT readers for her theater of the absurd political performance art, has played a race card so bizarre that it self-discredits.  Real Clear Politics provides a transcript and video here, where you can read and view the entire  thing, but here are some highlights:

I want to talk today about a controversial word. It's a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it's indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man. To render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments. 

This set-up reveals the theology of MSNBC, where "a group of wealthy white men" plays the same role for progressives that "Satan" plays in certain religious circles. The eternal source of all evil. Of course, the fact that President Obama himself embraced the term when he thought his scheme was going to work is a slight obstacle, but Harris-Perry gets to that a little later:

And so he decided, if you can't beat them, you've got to join them. And he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren't expecting -- 'if that's what you want me to be, I'll be that.' Y'all know the word that I'm talking about. Obamacare.

Don’t they have BO on record saying he liked it? I think he repeated it several times during the 2012 campaign.

They played this on Fox this morning

It really has to be seen to get the true comedic timing she put into this. Only she was serious.

When it was his “signature legislation”,
“Obamacare” was just great.

Now, it’s the “nword”...

Can these people be more absurd and deserving of ridicule?

Obama was picked specifically for this -
so that any criticism of the leftist agenda
could be dismissed with the guilt of racism/slavery.

Melissa's 2 hour two day a week show its pretty much 90% about victimization.

She takes forever to say that she means the word ‘Obamacare’ then she kills her own argument when she says how Obama embraced the word himself.

I can only assume that when he hear the word 'Obamacare' spoken by a Republican that we are supposed to go into the typical ‘I am offended by that’ act that MSNBC minorities play when a Republican guest is on a show.

“I am offended...”

Read between the lines, this says she knows that Obamacare is going to hurt Dems in next years election.

Maybe MSNBC’s marketing team has something in mind -— News with Comedy. They are really re-inventing the network into this. Watch out SNL !!

So I guess rappers will start using Obamacare in all of their songs, except they will drop the “re” off the end to make it ok.

If ObamaCare is like saying “N-Care”

Then HillaryCare is like “Bitchy-BitchCare”

And RomneyCare is “RichieRichCare”

The Obama administration is trying to stop the use of the term Obamacare because they believe it damages their attempts to hoodwink the American people further. The nonsense coming from the MSNBC nitwits and shills is just their attempt to do their master’s bidding.

The term was made up by a bunch of rich white guys? Knowing the creativity of Freepers it was probably coined here first.

That's a stretch even for someone in a mental institution!

If even the word is so offensive, then MSLSD should do all they can to have the Obamacare law repealed!

Absolutely, and goes to show both sides are in on this and why neither McCain or Romney played to win. They weren't supposed to. Makes me sick.

White liberal elites ARE the power structure that’s bringing down this country. And yeah they put a man with a black face in office - and another one on MSNBC - but behind it all is a bunch of white liberal elites who hate middle class citizens of all colors...

I wonder what foreigners think when they visit the U.S. after reading about or viewing left-wing tv and movies. I suppose they think white people dressed in Simon Legree clothing with bullwhip in hand go around lashing black people and other minorities when they're not lynching innocent young, black males for walking down the street.

The picture of the U.S. as depicted by leftists like the ones on MSLSD is one of poverty and misery for the great majority (all gaunt and sickly looking from being denied health care) while evil, fat, white males drive around in huge cars and live in gigantic mansions. In the world of the leftists, nobody is responsible for their situation in life. Society i.e. greedy, rich white males is to blame.

Liberals liked the term 'Obamacare' until they realized what a disaster this medical takeover was going to be...

With a name like 'obamacare' it's difficult to blame the fallout on Republicans... so now they're trying to change the name.

Charming little bunch of liars democrats are.. Lying's the tie that binds with them.

No I think I've heard this argument before.
It's okay for Obama to say the O-word.
