MSNBC Host Makes Fun of Mitt Romney’s Black Grandson
The Wrap ^ | December 20, 2013 | LA Ross

Posted on 12/31/2013 1:47:29 AM PST by lbryce

Host of eponymous “Melissa Harris-Perry Show” is under fire for making the race of Romney’s adopted grandson a punchline.

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry concluded the “What’s So Funny About 2013?” segment of her Sunday show with a chorus of laughter at the black grandson pictured in former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s family Christmas photo. The chuckles were directed at baby Kieran – who was adopted by Romney’s son Ben and his wife Andelynne in September.

“One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same,” panelist Pia Glenn offered as a caption for the photo, which the Romneys tweeted on Christmas Eve. (Lyrics of the original Sesame Street song are, “One of these things just doesn’t belong.”)

“And that little baby, front and center, would be the one,” Glenn said.

MSNBC is a demented, shrill parody of a news show, hypocritical, scurrilous, beneath contempt befitting their liberal, left wing credentials, a motley crew of dysfunctional, emotionally stunted characters acting with the sense of decorum not unlike inmates having taken over the asylum news set.

No, that would be wrong because Sandra felt that she had to adopt a little black baby, and it's all the rage in Hollywood now that crazy Angelina has opened up an orphanage. [Some people claim she did it because she wanted to atone for her exe's racial attitudes (Jesse), others think did it because of prior attitudes she wasn't proud of. I only remember a movie of hers in 2009 called "The Blind Side." It was in 2010 she adopted the child. I'd like to think she took the role a little more seriously than a paycheck.]

I never watch that garbage but I decided to flick over and see what the fuss was about and boy did I get a shock .
It’s filled with hate disguised as humor , it’s filled with presenters who seem to have a mentality of a 12 year old and how anyone could even watch a channel like MSNBC filled with that much hate and bigotry is beyond me

I think the real problem for MSNBC libs is not that the child was adopted by a white family but that the child was born at all. Unwanted babies are not to be born and adopted, they’re to be killed.

Good point. For every two black babies that are born live today, a third is killed via abortion. That to me is genocide, and liberals not only support it, they actually subsidize it with our tax dollars.

Talk about soul’s sold to the dark side, MSNBC reigns as Al Jezerra Lite, and this Harris slasher Perry person is Olberman in a bra.

Matthews is a loon now, unable to function anywhere near reality.

Cousin Ed is so obtuse he was never qualified to even ride on the turnip truck.

COMCAST— who ARE these guys anyway? Ick.

Republican family kids don’t get the same right to privacy that the elite, commie ‘RATS’ kids get. If the toads in Obama’s state controlled “media” tried this with a ‘RAT politician’s kid, the whole world would be “outraged”. Commie DemocRATS make me want to puke.

GRANDIOSE SELF-WORTH — a grossly inflated view of one’s abilities and self-worth, self-assured, opinionated, cocky, a braggart. Psychopaths are arrogant people who believe they are superior human beings.

“Free speech is a wonderful thing”

Indeed. We should rejoice that MSLSD allows the progressive movement’s media elite to publicly proclaim what they really think for all to see and hear.

Of course, these people are vulgar and despicable. Of course, they are profane. They are the media elite of Team Obama. It’s a great window into the heart and soul of progressive movement.

Bottom line: liberals like Melissa Harris HYPHEN Perry are so filled with hate they can't think straight. So filled with hate she can't even see that it's a blessing this baby got adopted into a loving home. Evidently she'd rather see him go from foster home to foster home rather than live with a Repub family. Man! That's pretty toxic.

I have no doubt that deep inside she's a very unhappy woman. With such a black heart she couldn't be any other way than miserable.

They are racist because they support the Clown blindly, too.

Racism goes both ways-—supporting someone because of race and hating someone because of race.

Democrats do both. With extreme prejudice.

Remember Harry Reid:

“Obama is a light skinned black man who doesn’t speak with a Negro dialect” - normally the purveyor of this kind of Hitlerian ranking of skin color would be drawn and quartered in the public square, while simultaneously being yelled at by the pious liberal media who, on cue, would be weeping blood. Yet there was complete silence on this egregious racist assault on the dignity of a human being. They love to lecture, except if it is one of their own who is the racist and then they are all so forgiving.

Clinton said “this guy would be getting us coffee” which was never investigated either.

Do they ever tire of the hypocrisy?

Unfortunately, it wasn’t sarcasm. This poster has a formidable dislike for Mitt Romney’s religion and is prone to come up with anything she can to disparage him no matter how false it happens to be.

The reason is quite obvious. Unlike gay people who can adopt (!%???#$!!!) kids, even impose their sexuality on them, the idea of a black couple adopting a white child would be tantamount of a death sentence against the couple by both blacks and whites.
