Posted on 12/30/2013 4:24:46 PM PST by Kaslin
For the blissfully uninitiated, Melissa Harris-Perry is MSNBC's deep thinking host who wore tampons as earrings in support of late-term abortion (or something), and who declared that parents need to come to grips with the fact that their kids really "belong" to the broader community. In other words, she's been scraping the bottom of the barrel for some time. But is this a new low?
Melissa Harris-Perry and MSNBC Panel Mock Mitt Romney's Black Grandson
Everybody loves a baby picture, Harris-Perry said, and this was one that really, a lot of people had emotions about this baby picture this year. This is the Romney family. And, of course, there on Governor Romneys knee is his adopted grandson, who is an African-American, adopted African-American child, Kieran Romney. As Harris-Perry made the introduction, panelist Pia Glenn sang One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isnt the same, a tune whose original lyrics read one of these things doesnt belong. And that little baby, front and center, would be the one, she added...Comedian Dean Obeidallah chimed in by reducing the baby to a token. I think this picture is great, he said. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person. Whatever you think of the quality of the jokes, using a baby to make a political punchline is a tough sale, with a high bar for comedy and commentary.
The Right Scoop's Caleb Howe:
Its funny because Romney is white and his grandson isnt, which is obviouslyhilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.
Twitchy has a round-up of reactions, some of which are understandably scalding:
Make a note that it's a progressive on MSNBC mocking a family for their unsegregated adoption. #LeanForward Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) December 30, 2013
The Harris-Perry panel's mean-spirited mockery of a child and his loving adoptive family is a cherry atop the vile sundae that was MSNBC's 2013 programming. The Washington Free Beacon compiled a condensed year-end montage of lowlights. The ridicule of Mitt and Ann Romney's grandchild didn't make the cut, as it came too late on the calendar. So much self-unaware venom, so little time:
Ugly Stuff: MSNBC's 2013 Highlight Reel
My heart goes out to the interns who had to sift through that footage (though they're probably treated better at the WFB than they would be at lefty rags who claim to be strong supporters of "living wages"). MSNBC will surely clean up its act in 2014, right? Feel free to contemplate that question after you stop laughing.
They are just P.O.’d that the boy actually has a birth certificate.
Funny I didnt hear anyone on MSNBC mock Sandra Bullock for adopting a black baby..in fact, they put her on the cover of People Magazine and went awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww..I think with Melissa Perry, who thinks that ALL children belong to “the community” she is a bitter hag who secretly wishes her white, yes WHITE mother had aborted her..she has some serious mommy issues..the Romney’s are a good family and I think the bottom line is those on the left wish this child had been aborted because after all, their goal is the more black children who get aborted the better
where’s jesse jackson on this obvious racism?
One of these things is not like the others,
one of these things just isnt the same
Does Chris Matthews or any of those panelists have an adopted black baby to display? (they may for all I know — just an obvious question)
This is a characteristic of partisanship on the left (and right) that disgusts me. When a political enemy does something quote-unquote good from the perspective of their idealogy they still pile on with some inane snide remark. Mostly a leftist thing but also happens around here as well.
As Dana Perino said on Th Five “ what if this had been 2 gay guys, you wouldn’t hear a peep”. Bingo!
while I will not mock....whites should look after their own.
But at least the Romney’s adopted kid won’t end up being another Treyvon.
I’ ve watched this woman’s show, she is a racist and a typical liberal moron, any critisism of obama or other black “leaders” is always racism to this twit. She’s also a professed atheist, says a lot!
When you shoo away the flies, scrape off the maggots and pick up the dog shi* you will find Melissa Harris-Perry of MSNBC.
I would expect MSNBC to fire her in the morning - oh wait she is half black, never mind it ok for her to say things like that.
And yes Melissa Harris-Perry mother is white.
She is a racists along with the other ones
Poor taste but ain’t that what MSNBC is all about?
They’re leftists first, and everything else second. Kind of like the doctors at Auschwitz.
Genius! Post of the Day!
I wish there would be a ban on posting ANYTHING about MSNBC unless it were about the network being eliminated.
They get more threads on here than they have viewers.
She would prefer the child get aborted rather than live with a Republican family, that is how far the left hate Republicans..they would rather see a child DIE than live in a home with a loving family, who happen to be Republican..truly sick stuff
Is THAT Pajama Boy on the left?
Thanks Kaslin. This was in lieu of coverage of Polar Bear Hunting, apart from the fact that this “story” was MSNBC’s analogue to PBH.
This is all very easy to understand. It doesnt matter what a “conservative/republican” does, they are going to be attacked or mocked.
That kid in the pic looks nothing like Barry O. He looks so much like his mother as an adult, but that pic is weird. Who is that?
I think you misspelled the second word in the title, pretty sure the cl does not belong. In any case it makes more sence without those two letters.
You can’t make a silk purse out of a sows rear end.
Izz at Frank David Marshall’s kid sitting on Paul Mcartneys lap. Seriously, the kid looks like him.
I thought she had a familiar look to her.
Watching MSNBC is on my to do list right after walking in a minority area after dark with $40K showing and right after buying 3 Chevy Volts. (not on my list)
That is his sister, fathered by soetoro. Obama is the boy standing up.
Obama is wearing a BRACELET and NECKLACE in that picture.....was that common in those days??? I don’t even think it’s common today for a “BOY” to wear a bracelet and necklace......WEIRD!!!
Why do Obama and Perry DESPISE their WHITE side, their MOTHERS????
