Video: MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry Cries During Romney Apology
The Right Scoop ^ | 1/4/2014 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 01/04/2014 9:28:54 AM PST by absentee

On MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry this morning, the host apologized for remarks she made on her show last weekend, a story first broken here at The Right Scoop. She apologized "without reservation or qualification" to the Romney family, and very emotionally to interracial families everywhere:

...

So the only group due an apology yet to hear one, and who will almost certainly never hear one, are Republicans across the nation, who are caricatured and characterized as obviously racist every single day, based solely on their party affiliation. Unfortunately, as we'll show later today in a follow-up post, the racist assumption about the right crops right back up in Harris-Perry's show only a few segments after the above clip.

Their true racism comes out, then they “apologize” and cry from embarrassment hoping to save their jobs or “reputations”

She will be back with something equally or more outrageous, just like clockwork. Haters like this beyotch don’t change their stripes

When you spend the first half of the segment rationalizing what you did, and THEN apologizing for it..it doesn't hold water..

OTOH, at least she wasn't wearing the Tampon earrings while she was speaking.

She’s got a serious speech impediment. This is the first time I’ve seen her and I’ve noticed she has a serious speech impediment. How do you get a job in the media with a truly terrible lisp like that?

And turn off the waterworks!

MSNBC has turned into the bi-polar, depressed, angry, dramatic relative most of us have that we all try to stay way from to keep from being pulled into the singularity of crazy.

According to the left, conservatives do not adopt ‘children of color’ because conservatives are inherently racist. Furthermore, if a conservative DOES adopt a ‘child of color’, it is for the SOLE reason of turning the ‘child of color’ into a Uncle Tom.

At the same time ,according to the left, a homosexual adopting a child of any race is to be commended and the homosexual would NEVER even attempt to indoctrinate the child into the homosexual movement.

The left view children as tools, NOT people, in their Long March Toward Utopia.

The lefts loathing of children is striking...

Was she crying because she realized what insensitive, gauche, rude, racist, bigoted haters the Left are or because she felt pressured into apologizing and was offended to tears over what she believed to be the trampling of her First Amendment rights?

Sounds like the woman who proclaimed that we need to stop thinking of children as our own and more as children belonging to the ‘collective’ is guilty of psychologically abusing children.

Most American women have learned to cry to avoid the consequences of their actions. When confronted with truth for their reprehensible actions they go into a crying jag, especially women that are relatively decent looking and use their appearances to affect the men that are judging them. I see women cry to avoid paying a bill, get a traffic ticket, or just to avoid a direct confrontation; I even saw women in college put on crying jags to get a better grade. Ms. Hyphenated name is no different and fits the description to a T.

It’s a loony world we live in! I worked in a bookstore over the Christmas holiday and they actually hired a deaf woman to answer the phones. I’d have to duck down behind the counter to hide my laughter every time she picked up the phone and screamed “WHAAAATTTT???” down the receiver.

There is a white family in my town who adopted three black siblings. The father is probably in his middle fifties, and they are very well off. As I understand it, they have a grown daughter and they wanted to adopt. Being older adoptive parents may have limited their choices. They were offered the three siblings, now about 4, 8 and 10, (girl, boy, girl) as a set, and they took them.

The 8 year old plays on my grandson’s little league team, and dad and the sisters attend just about every game. They seem well adjusted and happy. I hate to think what the alternative for them would have been.

What kind of person makes fun of a family adopting a child because of the child’s skin color? Your apology may be accepted but your actions/behavior defined you as the nasty bigoted liberal that you are.
