By Caleb Howe


On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction:

The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.

But it’s even better than just hilarious, it also makes you think! Because, as the final comment from the panel tells us, this pic is a microcosm of the GOP. “It sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person.” Ah the never tired accusation, borrowed from every single left wing blog and talking head during every gathering of two or more (or fewer) Republicans: He’s not a child adopted by loving parents prepared to provide him with a better life in keeping with the family’s values. Nope. He’s just a token. A punchline, not a person. But it’s funny, because Republicans are racist, see? So it’s all fine!

Early in the show Harris-Perry indicates that her guests are all comedians. I guess if repetitive, lazy race-baiting is comedy, then this crew must be ready to go on tour. They can call themselves the Kings and Queens of Comedy.

See? Funny.

    Because people like Melissa Harris whoever doesn’t know how to love.

    • Alborn

      And her mother is white. Tell you anything.

  • 29Victor

    Any black person allowed into the MSNBC lineup is an expert on tokenism.

  • Alborn

    I would like to see one picture of a wealthy black family adopting a trailer trash white baby to give them a better life. Anyone know of one? White conservative males you better wake up are you will be the ones being slaughtered in the near future. You better push back while you still can. Blacks on the left are not about getting along they are about pitting whites and blacks against each other to keep black youth unemployable and angry and blaming someone besides themselves for being brainwashed and used.

    • Reno_Dave

      Well, the family wasn’t wealthy, but I know of one white child adopted by a black family:

      • Alborn

        Oh yeah, I forgot that one.

  • WI4Walker

    I know I shouldn’t be, but I continue to be amazed at the complete lack of professionalism on this network. Who does this? Who behaves like this? There is not even an effort to be classy.

  • anotherworriedmom

    Who is Melissa Harris-Perry? Or, do I care what she or anyone on PMSNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN have to say? They are ALL propaganda arms for the DNC.

    • speakez6

      I up commented you, but IMO just ignoring these slimeballs won’t change the course. We have to be in the trenches with every single one of these cretins and respond, knock em’ down and do the work to show the public how ridiculous, racist, out of touch they are…as the fascist, Marxist, racists they are.

  • RightUnite

    Classy liberals keepin’ it classy I see…. Mmmm Hmmmm…..

  • Raejean

    I think it takes a truly crass individual to make a joke out of an adopted baby’s life. Hope the child grows up and confronts the pundit someday. I’d like to be around to see if they can summon up any shame.

  • RightUnite

    Melissa should know all about being the token black, seeing how she is one….How does it feel harelip Melissa??

    • timsrighty

      I got one…Melisspa.

    • Alborn

      Melissa’s mother is white. She is self hating of her white side.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Republicans/326607734101631?skip_nax_wizard=true#!/vickie.browning.12 blondethinker

    I for one am glad that a baby, no matter the race, was adopted into
    a loving family instead of being, as Perry would put it, “just a cluster of cells” in Planned Parenthood’s dumpster

    • Patriot077

      Nailed it. Too bad you weren’t with that bunch of jokers to screw their heads on straight for a minute.

    • Ms Ryan

      Amen sister!

    • Zakuska

      Im very surprised that the tampons she wore on TV weren’t used.

    • Guest

      I watched a video where a daughter gave her mother a shadow box announcing she was pregnant. There was a sonogram and expected delivery date. The Mother just lost it, she cried and laughed and was so happy as were the comments from viewers. I thought afterwards, how precious life and pregnancy are. What kind of response would the mother have had if the daughter would have given her a shadow box announcing she had an abortion?

  • timsrighty

    This attempt at comic relief from MSNBC is really quite sickening. Melisspa and her pathetic panel should be ashamed. But instead they’ll give high fives, do some bong hits and sleep well tonight. How insulting these creeps are.

  • Carla Rogers Williams

    Melissa your jealousy is showing…

    • oeb25

      “you’re?” Try again, honey. It’s not that hard.

      • Carla Rogers Williams

        this article is about Melissa, not my spelling.

      • keyesforpres

        We’ve all used the wrong version at one time or another. It’s not important and your comment was out of line.

    • Kristopher Schindler

      Not her jealousy, her ignorance!

      • CJ IsDa Shiznit

        both!

        • Kristopher Schindler

          Agreed!

  • $3273457

    This is truly a disgusting display. Just more proof that the Left is where real racism resides.

    I know this game gets old, but just imagine the reaction if the Red Eye panel on Fox did this same bit with a Black Democrat family with a White child. Which begs the question, how many White babies are adopted by Black families, as opposed to vice versa? Answer: FAR more Black children are adopted by White families. With all of their carping about integration and racial equality, you’d think that the Left would celebrate White families adopting Black children. Instead, they fear that these children will “lose their Black identity.” So much for “content of their character” and all that.

  • deemilio

    My nephew and his wife have 2 adopted children and they are both black, but no one ever asks them why they adopted black children. They applied for the adoption and got the first child that was available to them and they love him dearly and guess what, so does the whole family and vice versa. Ask him if he cares that his parents are white. He’ll say, huh? Only race baiters make note of such things and both of my nephew’s children have the life that their birth mothers were not able to give them.

    • timsrighty

      Well said.

  • timsrighty

    Has anyone seen the movie “Blindside” about the white Tuohy family who adopted the black football player. Oh and by the way the sickos on MSNBC would prefer the child the Romney’s adopted would have been aborted.

    • toongoon

      That is a very good movie.

      Don’t count that “abortion” out yet…

    • Millie Urevig

      Also, Sandra Bullock has adopted a child that happens to be Black. I also have two ‘PRECIOUS’ grandchildren that are multi racial, whose mother once accused me of being racist while one of the babes was in my arms! Liberals don’t get the concept of LOVE.

      • timsrighty

        Good for you and God bless you. All Liberals’ see is color of skin. I see color of skin as well and choose to celebrate it while liberals choose to use it as a way of dividing us all.

  • magi52

    Further PRoOF that MSDNC is EViL.

    Children do not see color, they only see character. That child was adopted by a family with lots of love and will grow up in a home filled with it but these deceitful loons who prefer to attack innocents of conservatives try to change the facts with their tunnel-visioned-narrative. Sick people…

  • TJ

    They would say the same thing about Lil’ Will Robertson. He was a token for the show to show they are not racist or something. Even if they adopted him years before they even thought they could have a TV show and around the same time they had their youngest daughter.

  • Ed

    The panel members are secretly jealous. They know Kiernan will enjoy a rich family life with a mother/father and loving extended family something few if any of them could ever relate to.

    • Denny Crane

      The poor losers on that panel would love to spend the summer in that mansion on Lake Winnipesaukee. LMAO!

  • Denny Crane

    Yes MSLSD thinks it’s not RACIST and better than the Duck Dynasty Family, but they’re not.

    They’re just liberal haters who always claim to be nice tolerant people, but their true colors always come out.

  • Tequila

    Nick Searcy, actor from the show “Justified”, who regularly takes liberals on Twitter also has an adopted black son, which he points out when accused of being racist. You know because he’s conservative.

    • NRPax

      “Call me racist again. My adopted black son thinks it tastes like ice cream” is one of his better ones.

  • AynRandWasRight

    Who is Melissa Harris Perry and what is this “MSNBC?” And most importantly, why are we paying them any attention?

    • speakez6

      Ignoring them won’t make them go away. They must be brought to attention, mocked, and disinfected with sunlight so the public see’s them for who they are. Confront these people…and destroy their ideology of hate and intolerance with truth and courage.

      • AynRandWasRight

        Giving them the attention they desperately seek, the satisfaction of our indignation, and the dissemination of their words far, far beyond what they would ever get without our help.

        Sounds pretty foolish to me.

        • speakez6

          So why are you even replying to RS post? Why aren’t you telling RS to pull it if we shouldn’t pay any attention to it? Seems you’re conflicted, or just not seeing the battlefield from deep inside your trench. This is a culture war…MSNBC still reaches thousands whether you like it or not. They don’t do it for attention…they do it TO CHANGE MINDS through disinformation, lies, and Alinsky ridicule. Without another side confronting their ideology…gee we wonder why they are changing America so quick. One side attacks..the others side throws their hands up

          • AynRandWasRight

            One side attacks and the attacks are witnessed by a small number of lunatics who already believe this sort of nonsense.
            The other side takes the bait and broadcasts the disinformation and lies to a much broader audience, most of whom would never know such idiocy was ever uttered otherwise.
            That’s what the right is doing now. And it’s really stupid. If an idiot falls in the MSNBC forest, and no one hears it but other idiots, it doesn’t make a sound. UNLESS a conservative tapes it, and broadcasts it throughout the republic. It’s dumb.

            • Guest

              You make numerous erroneous logical and factual assumptions, I think we’ll just agree to disagree.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004422431818 Sur Mar

    These people at MSNBC will always show their racism when they believe that no one will call them out on it.

    • Crassus

      The sad thing is that except for a few conservative blogs nobody ever does call them out for their racism.

      • kevin in MD

        The only racist party is the Repub Party – Teabag Party”. Screw the Repub Party. Screw that sore looser Romney. Why is he even passing out pictures of his family. Who cares about him. Mr. 49 percent using that poor kid as a prop. Romney needs to go live his life and leave the rest of us alone.

  • http://www.whatburnsmybacon.com/ What Burns My Bacon

    If anyone ever said that all liberals were accepting of different view points, believe in real diversity, not bad-mouthing people with opposing views and are not prejudiced, that person was sadly misinformed.

  • Pat_Loudoun

    Wow. After watching the clip that is even worse than I imagined it would be.

    • Patriot077

      I knew I couldn’t stand to watch it. They are just despicable people and I already know that. Any network news host that wears tampon earrings does not deserve the attention.
      But I do enjoy reading the comments on this blog that validate natural humanity. Blessings to the Romney family and their beautiful new baby girl.

  • DebsFriends

    Did you notice the little girl leaning toward the little girl on Romney’s lap? Totally accepting family. Great picture.

  • toongoon

    All that was missing was the White hoods.
    They sound like they’re about to burn a cross in Romney’s front yard.

    Same party, different day.

  • gaultfalcon

    Imagine the furry this same conversation would spark if had on Fox News. The only thing worse than the Progressive/Communist double standard in this country is their blatant racism as demonstrated in this clip.

  • ExSF

    It looks like being a grown-up and being a liberal comedian are mutually exclusive. (Maybe I should have said a “liberal anything.”)

    • keyesforpres

      Excellent!

  • Denny Crane

    Romney could donate every penny of his fortune that he worked very hard for to the United Negro College Fund and they would still call him a racist.

  • Edward La Guardia

    Look, that witch on MSNBC is a despicable scum that doesn’t even deserve to be crud on the bottom of most people’s shoes, HOWEVER, it’s odd that you guys are all over this when you take every opportunity you can to bash Romney…I guess hypocrisy swings both ways.

    • keyesforpres

      Bash Romney? Nah. We would have called him out on policies and ideas of his we disagreed with…that is what intelligent people do.

  • 1911HeadBanger

    You will never satisfy the Liberal Dumbass Propaganda artists. Screw the those LibTards. The Romneys are giving the child a home and a family and a future. The MSNBCtards probably believe that the child should have been aborted anyway. Melissa Harris Perry showed her true colors. RACIST!!!

  • JimNEPA2_0

    MSNBC = The Longest SNL “Weekend Update” Sketch Ever!

  • etk7027

    Typical MSNBC. Absolutely no cred.

  • juliams

    MHP is evil….she is absolutely psychotic.

  • Eric Grayson

    Liberals are the wolves in sheeps clothing the Bible tells us to be careful of and their false teachings. They say they are tolerant but are the most intolerable people out there.

  • Cort

    Amazing how the left is still attacking Romney. They can’t speak about real news like what’s going on with their precious Obama and the failing of Obamacare and everything else. They have to turn the attention to something or someone else.

    • Axelgreaser

      THE MENTALLY DERANGED LEFT have learned taking aim with their addle brained, irrational, ‘revisionist history’ attacks on George W. Bush has become completely laughable and toxic for them, so perhaps they’ve decided to dial back just as far as Romney as their lunatic launch of an unfit candidate, the blood stained Hillary inexplicably begins. No matter that Romney was a man who WAS NEVER PRESIDENT and who has had nothing to do with the DISASTER OF OBAMA and the moral, financial and horrendous decay of our stature on the world stage. He merely warned of it!

    • AHH!!!

      It would really surprise me if they could point to (1), ONE thing the Crappy Golfer In Charge, has done for the U.S. that is worthwhile. I very much doubt it.

    • mardec

      Good. The more they attack, the more Romney’s name comes up and makes the country realize how utterly stupid we were to let him get away. This country and the economy would be on the mend now if he were President instead of that incompetent fool in the White House.

    • Patriot077

      But of course they are putting out fires with distractions. Who is talking about 0-care right now? Or his poll numbers?

  • Axelgreaser

    THIS WOMAN, WHO IS ONE HALF CAUCASIAN, MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY was on C-SPAN this week moderating a panel reviewing the inequities of female incarceration practices in Louisiana. This re-broadcast of the event was done under the auspices of Tulane University, New Orleans, where Harris-Perry is a ‘tenured’ professor and so, freely fouls her students minds with liberalism (probably injected with a high dosage of racism, anti-capitalism, etc., though she is surely wealthy herself) and double dips as a full out communist inclined race-baiter on the miserable MSM conduit for Obama and Democrat propaganda and misinformation, MSNBC. The content of the discussion when it adhered to the topic was enlightening, however, Harris-Perry could not resist using the C-SPAN pulpit to wedge in a few comments to defend her ‘your child doesn’t belong to you, but to the collective’ remarks, which are reprehensibly communist in basis (and a shared theory of Hillary’s, btw) but did not touch on her recent redefinition of what constitutes ‘racist attacks’ on Obama by suggesting that the newly devised word/phrase ‘Obama Care’ is a white persons word replacement for ‘N’ word. A word, btw way, she is allowed to use in her MSNBC telecast at will and with impunity, but which I am not allowed to type out in full here due to Disqus intervention because apparently it is ‘distasteful’ unless used by a black to slur and insult whites or other shades of people who find Obama an unsuitable, incompetent and dangerous ‘leader of the free world.’ This goes to show just how dangerous tenure is and questions why this woman is allowed to represent a major University!

    • Katielee4211

      Just half? I’d think she’s a bit more than half white.

      • Axelgreaser

        This was the statement she (Harris-Perry volunteered, who knows why, it had nothing to do with the topic) on the C-SPAN broadcast I’ve described above. One begins to think that something happens within the family of some of these bi-racial children i.e., Harris-Perry and Obama, who become ideologue activists, that makes them particularly virulent racists, anti-capitalistic (though they enjoy its fruits to the hilt) and anti-white. What shocked me watching this program was how docile white students (liberal students, probably in attendance for ‘credit’) just sat there and took many unfounded insults regarding whites (which someone like the reprehensible Harris-Perry lumps into one big white bogeyman of ‘white horror’)…just sat there and took it and did not go to the mic to comment. Frankly, if I had a child at Tulane, I’d rank them out so fast Harris-Perry’s 1/2 white, 1/2 black head would swim.

    • AHH!!!

      She is just another zebra racist commentator, what a surprise!

    • mardec

      Shows you the low level that our educational system has sunk to.

      • Axelgreaser

        IT IS ESSENTIAL parents begin vetting their children’s University’s, and by that I mean professor by professor whose political beliefs (and indeed how much of those ideologies they are allowed to not just teach but ‘infuse’) must be scrutinized and who also should be fully background checked, scholastically, papers written (in spite of Obama’s precedent to not reveal ANYTHING he wrote) and presented for parents to evaluate. THESE ARE OUR CHILDREN FOR GOD’S SAKE! Obviously 1/2 of the electorate didn’t bother to vett Obama, nor did the culpable MSM.

    • Alborn

      Remember Tulane is where Breitbart said he got his liberal indoctrination. People who go there know what they will get in an education. They already agree before they go.

    • Crassus

  • ladyjk

    MSNBC and those they employ just have no class at all. You just try to tell me this baby will not have a great life because this family has adopted him. Instead of being happy for this little fellow that he will have plenty of love and a great chance because of this family adopting him they have to denigrate his new found family and opportunity for a better life. These people especially Perry have no shame. If I were Perry’s parents I would be ashamed of her actions on this one.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eWxCRReTV4&t=5m30s Booker

    This is very low. But it is MSNBC. What do you expect?

  • toongoon

    Race is not the driving force of leftists, Evil is the motivator, liberalism is the unifier. Race is only used as the preferred weapon by those who don’t have any other real offensive against those they blindly fear.
    The left is deranged and swinging wildly at anybody they can hit. They aren’t unlike the random shooters at schools, They want as many casualties as they can get. They are trying to emotionally damage anyone who has a sense of morality.
    The weak minded individuals at MSNBC and other main stream outlets are addicted to hatred and abusing those who they are afraid of. They are like a pack of jackals attacking a wounded deer but they never get the satisfaction of eating their kill. They live for the thrill of the attack.
    They don’t care if Romney has a black grandchild, The child is only a target.

  • RestlessLegs

    Interesting. When I look at the picture, I see a cute little baby. When liberals look at it, they see only a cute little BLACK baby that is to be used for lefty political purposes.

  • Malcom Treadway

    Melissa Harris-Perry. Daughter of tokenism? In her own words:
    “My mother is the fourth of five children born into a working class family at the end of WWII. She is descended from Mormon pioneers who pushed handcarts across the American west. A WHITE WOMAN (emphasis mine) in a MORMON FAMILY (emphasis mine), my mom was raised in the racially homogenous (not “token”?) enclave of Spokane, Washington…”

    From interview, on No Country For Young Women

  • mardec

    These ignorant fools who make such comments wouldn’t lift a finger to help someone in trouble or some child in need. The Romneys, on the other hand, have compassion, love and CLASS!

    And, by the way…their opinion is meaningless and never should have been given the light of day.

  • Tom Leist

    The Democrat are the TRUE racists in this country, FACT. Mitt would of made a great president, not like the communist idiot we have now.

  • crosspatch

    This is absolutely disgusting. Romney isn’t running for any political office, why do they feel a need to do this? What if this had been Chelsea Clinton who adopted a black child? Would the child then be a “token”? This is just plain wrong.

    • lawngren

      They need to intimidate and dominate other whites. romney was a public figure, so attacking him can be called “news”, if you’re a socialist / progg shill whose brain is suing you for desertion.

      Besides, they couldn’t think of anything else to say.

  • planetes

    It’s the nature of the devil. If we don’t have a black person in our family, or if one isn’t spotted at a Tea Party rally, well, we aren’t diverse enough. When one IS spotted, they’re just a “token”. Let’s all admit that losers like Harris-Perry aren’t worth the air in a jug. Hey Harris-Perry! Where’s YOUR black grandchild? Are you prejudiced?

    • Chris Coon

      Harris Perry and Al Sharpton are the tokens.

      The rabid left doesn’t dare ask a Muslim what the Quran says about homosexuals or how Muslim nations deal with them. The petty tyrants of the left actually like the theocracies and despotic totalitarian regimes of the Islamic world, they are are envious of their domination of the people. In fact, a merging of radical Marxist collectivism and Islam has already occurred, and is residing in the White House.

      • lawngren

        Except that if islam gains control here, the libs will be in just as much trouble as the rest of us. I have no idea why anyone would ever believe that muslims, once in power, would ever allow co-existence, unless for a few token dhimmis.

    If they had adopted a white child, they would be slammed for not considering adopting a child of color…..

    • lawngren

      That’s it. If you’re white, you’re racist, unless you mock and vilify other whites as racist. Then you’re conditionally not racist. Maybe. As long as you keep up the tempo and never, ever pretend that whites aren’t racist.

      Never will the left speak truth.

  • vonvervengarten

    Remember all the heart warming things they said about Sarah Palin’s baby with Down syndrome? The left hate infants that are alive, in any form. This black granddaughter is much preferable dead from an abortion to the sick, sick leftists.

    Tell me something pia and perry: how many black children or grandchildren do YOU have?

    Have either of you ever ABORTED any?

  • abigail_adams

    The most despicable about this, is the same as Sarah Palins child, they mock and make fun babies. The innocent ones. That is as low as you can go in my book. The idea that BSNBC allows this not to just go on, but to escalate sickens me to the core. Parasites, slimy parasites.

    These Liberals are so racist it isn’t even funny.
    The Romney’s didn’t have to adopt a black child. They don’t have political aspirations so what is the point? To the Liberals it is because they need a token.

    How HORRIBLE to suggest such a thing and I think she should be FIRED for speaking this racist garbage.

      Don’t you think your comment is ‘racist’? It’s based upon a stereotype. Many black kids know their extended family members. Many of them live together under the same roof.

        Sistah, I respect you comments and your clear headed thinking is an asset to this site. Read my reply to ‘timsright’ above.

        • timsrighty

          Now you’re speculating. And if you were a talking head who happened to be white and you said things like the above then I would go elsewhere for critical thinking. Face it, your comments are similar to MSNBC.

          • CarolinaSistah

            Thank you. If we are ever going to combat the ‘isms’ of this world, we must confront them head-on and stomp it down!

    That is the luckiest little black child…he will grow up in a moral, loving family. He will be taught by the Romneys to be a very successful human being and patriot to our country. …and all the while Melissa Harris-Perry will continue to spew her speech impeded hatefulness. She needs psychological therapy in addition to her speech therapy. Keep burying your network MSNBC! Your small viewership can’t get much smaller.

        Do the names Col. Allen West and Herman Cain, ring a bell?

      • ThatGuyWhoLeavesComments

        I mean, what she said was racist as hell. And if a white person had said it, all hell would break loose. But luckily for her she’s Black, so it’s a pass to do whatever.

      • ThatGuyWhoLeavesComments

        I mean, what she said was racist as hell. She was singling out the baby because of the color of its skin, which is literally what racism is. But, you know, she’s Black so the Black community won’t be calling for her to be fired like they would if a white person had said the same thing.

      • ThatGuyWhoLeavesComments

        If a white person said that, he or she would already have been fired.

    “Which of these things is not like the other?” I can’t think of a more thoughtless and callous thing to say. How dare they allow this racist on television!

    I am reminded that we are fortunate, in that they are stupid enough to say what the really think, revealing themselves as the backward numbskulls they really are. The fact that they get away with this, day in and day out, is also an indictment of the management at MSDNC and the liberal media in general.

  • CalCoolidge

    We can say with unequivocal certainty that by adopting a “black” child, Romney has done more to advance the “black” race than the entirety of everyone affiliated with MS-LSD and Obama added together.

    So essentially, according to MSNBC…

    What can be a family: Anything, including your pet rock and gay fish!

    What cannot be a family: A nuclear family of white parents and an adopted black child.

    Uh…ok.

    These jackasses on the left would prefer that the child grows up in foster care as a ward of the state , and then toss him out on the streets on his 18th birthday. Rather than have a good home with good people who can provide for him.

    • Mike Mike

      They would rather the child was aborted late term than birthed and given a chance at life with a great loving family.

  • cruiszn

    The left are some sick, sick motherfu(kers.

  • JT

    Yeah, the interesting thing about this is that they put the photo on the air even though they obviously didn’t have anything to say about it. Ostensibly it’s comic fodder for Harris-Perry’s panel of comedians to riff, but all they can muster is (1) hey, one of them looks different, (2) a Kardashian joke from MHP herself, and (3) a predictable dig at the GOP — which would have worked just as well as a dig at Obama’s 2012 campaign team, actually. It’s not that the photo’s inherently funny or that a white family adopting a black child is wrong — imagine them reacting to a photo of Tom Cruise with his adopted son — it’s that, I think, they felt they couldn’t let it go unremarked upon that the GOP’s last nominee seems happy to have a black child in his family. On MSNBC, racism is the only reason to become a Republican. They’ve got to mock, even if they’re not exactly sure what they’re mocking, to delegitimize the inconvenient possibility that Romney isn’t prejudiced. Or maybe I’m giving them too much credit; maybe they do have a problem with interracial adoptions, a controversial subject in family law for ages. A lot of people who’d normally insist that race is nothing more than a social construct tend to get fidgety when a black child goes to live with a white family because it risks depriving him of his “authenticity.” Maybe that’s happening here, although I lean towards the “look at this Republican with a black kid!” gawk theory.

    • Mike Mike

      They would rather the ‘unwanted’ child was a late term abortion than a real person with a right to live a full happy life.

  • Scott Jones

  • doglover

    There is nothing funny about their comments. They were made to make themselves seem superior. How many black children (and white) and being aborted as we speak. Would this be one of them. Is it better for the Romney’s throw the child back into the poverty of the world because a bunch of liberals want to stomp on anything that might be construed as a good deed by Republicans. The people need to go adopt a parentless child and then their big mouths might say something that is valid. I have adopted a different race. She’s 30 and has the world by the tail. Everyone should do the same or keep your mouth shut.

  • timsrighty

    Uh…could the moderators please jump in?

  • Jon Pando

    She is so right on, that little black baby would be so much better off with its crack addicted, uneducated, MSNBC watching, Obama loving, Black birth parents. You know, the ones that gave her up for adoption to free up the financial burden of owning and raising a child to buy more crack.

  • James Cross

MSNBC get rid of these jokes you call news broadcasters.

  • Billy Diaz

    • toongoon

      It doesn’t matter that he is wealthy, everyone on MSNBC who attacks him is wealthy. What matters to them is that he is not a liberal and therefore not a member of their group think. Liberals are very shallow, they attack anyone who is not like them.

  • Sailing J

    That black grand child will have a better life and more love, amount to more in life than probably 95% of all the black kids living under democrat policies and “I’m a victim” believing blacks like Perry. Classless angry woman.

  • MrBdr4life .

    Typical hypocracy. When liberals discuss race relations it’s okay, but heaven forbid this was done by a conservative group. And might I add it’s 2014. Furthermore we live in a multi racial country were mixed families of different races is common place in many cities. So MSNBC may I ask why is this even newsworthy? The Romney’s gave a child a home and will love them. MSNBC and the cast of idiots in this video are the racists!!!

  • MallardTDrake

    These tools probably think that the birth-mother of the child should have aborted the pregnancy rather than allow the Romneys to adopt the baby.

  • jazzdrums

    Looks like, for all their posturing and grandstanding, the Left just hasn’t gotten rid of that nasty racist streak.

  • Bill C

    I think Melissa Harris Perry made the most close minded statement of the panel by immediately suggesting a future marriage with Kanye West’s son. If Rush Limbaugh said something like that the liberals would pounce on him as someone who suggested that “people keep to their own race” and narrate a detailed history of miscegenation laws in US history.

  • politicallycorrectNOT

    Sing with me, now…….”all of these jerks are just like the other”…

  • Army_Pilot1967

    What would the panel have said if Romney refused to hold his grandson for a photo? Whoa, Nellie, they would have had a field day with that. However I’m sure Mitt loves his grandson as much as any other grandparent loves their grandchildren. The turds on the panel HAVE to demean Romney because after all he is a hateful, mean-spirited, bigoted Republican (sarc).

      One of those isn’t like the others, either. Most of them are politicians and military, while one is a golfer. Hmmm….

  • Nukeman60

    Ok, this video will tax my ability to comply with the commenting policy. My fingers want to type something, but my mind says “be civil”.

    Why is one not like the others? Will that child not be brought up in the loving, caring family-oriented way that all the others have been? Will it be locked in a closet and fed only scraps?

    I think the Romneys will treat this child just like they have treated all their other children and grandchildren and this one child should grow up to be a healthy, well-balanced member of society, ready to follow in the others footsteps.

    I hope this child ends up running for President and kicks the living daylights out of the race-baiting, progressive, white Democrat who dares to oppose him.

    My only regret is that he isn’t a female running for President. Wouldn’t THAT stick in Melissa’s craw.

    • Kristopher Schindler

      The Romney family represents the nuclear family, an outdated fifties style that nobody wants anymore.
      No. The new millenia family is on food stamps, drugs, they attack republicans, and walk around with finger and thumb in the shape of an L on their forehead. When their government calls, they excitedly go to the polls and vote democrat, over and over.

    Instead of discussing the epidemic of broken families in the black community and how charitable (loving) the Romney family is for taking in this child through adoption (they probably wished it was just aborted instead), they take the low road (like always) and expose the worst of themselves an humanity. What’s honestly funny, is how hypocritical they are. Morons on parade.

    I’ll tell you…….I work with a guy who’s married with 3 children, and
    they decided to adopt two children from one of the most impoverished
    nations in the world: Ethiopia. His family is white, conservative and
    deeply religious……very moral people. He is one hell of a guy and I
    admire him for many things, among them being the decision to adopt. They
    now have this crowded home full of love, happiness and two additions
    who enjoy the blessings of living amongst that kind of warmth and joy.
    These children are being raised with proper values, morals and manners.
    They will go on to marry and carry on the values they were taught. I
    have a suspicion that this is EXACTLY why the Romneys did what they did.
    They didn’t do it for a fucking photo op.They have class, and the
    trashy squad who spewed their brain vomit on this show could learn a lot
    from a family like them. I’m not easily offended, but, this kind of
    overt, blatant and bold racism…….that’s what it is……..just makes
    me fume. They openly MOCKED him for it. What filth and trash MSLSD has
    on their line up. I hope that the station invests in plywood, to board
    up their windows when their viewers drop down to zero

    Romney can’t win with people. AND I think it’s a damn shame.

    He seems like heck of a nice guy in the real world. Has a lot of money and can make a difference in a little fella’s life but that’s not good enough for the asshattery media.
    They have to pooh pooh it and look for sinister motives.
    They’d prefer the kid live on the streets or in poverty.

  • Fastgirl

    If this was a white gay family with an adopted black baby Ms. Perry wouldn’t have given this photo a second thought.

    • Believer

      What is wrong with people?. There are no white people nor black people or gay.

      • Mohammed’s pink swastika

        skin color is not a choice. the bible clearly, very clearly defined homosexuality as a choice and a sin.

  • VERNON M. BONAGOFSKI

    Doesn’t this just prove that white democrats hate blacks?

    • Believer

      This proves that ignorance is boundless. Hatred is a heart sin and secondly God did not create skin color, he created him man and woman.

      • Mohammed’s pink swastika

        you keep talking about God. You calling yourself a believer does not makes you one. The left and its ideas are absolutely in contrast with God’s Word. you cannot escape the facts.

      • badbadlibs

        God drew distinct differences between races, not for the nefarious reasons you’re accusing others of doing, but to create a blood line for the Messiah!
        You are extremely uneducated and need to stop before you do anymore damage to the Kingdom.

  • wobegon

    I’m the white godfather of two African-American boys who would most likely be behind bars or dead were it not for the white parents who adopted them.

    It’s really nothing to joke about. Despicable.

    • Believer

      Sir, Please stop this ignorance. You are not white, and being behind bars and dead are not the only options in life and that part of your comment is despicable.

      • Brandon Coyle

        He’s not saying that’s all black people do he is saying that whoever adopted them took them out of a bad situation that is usually the recipe for crime and that way of life.

  • poljunkie

    Melissa Perry shows she has no compassion or love in her heart, and will stop at nothing to snark at a Republican, even if it means hurting an innocent baby.

    What comes around goes around, and hopefully viewers will react to this over the top insanity.

    • pappadave

      Doubtful, poljunkie. Their half-dozen or so regular viewers likely agree with the snarky comments 100%.

  • debra D

    Dear MSNBC: This is just plain WRONG regardless of your politics… Do these people realize how many kids are without a family.. Kids do not care about the color of the person who loves them!!! And NO ONE should be mocked for caring! This is just Evil.. Plain Evil… Are there no limits to how we try to make money or gets laughs on tv? Just Wrong!!!
    This is a baby and a family that stepped up noting more nothing less… I wonder how many kids will Ms Perry and her crew reach out to; take in their home to love and care for … It pained my heart to hear them carry on like that.

    This is just plain sickening. Dose this loud mouth make guest appearances on Duck Dynasty? As long as That sicko Perry is on MSNBC I will never watch you programing again.

        so when Jesus was talking about the Jews and the Greek Christians he was defining them by their race.

  • Jon Waldrep

    I am very liberal, and not a fan of Romney or his family, but what the MSNBC host said was wrong and offensive. You leave the children out of politics…period. That beautiful baby has done nothing wrong, nor have her adoptive mother and father who had enough love and big enough hearts to share with a child that needed a home. Just like it bothers me when people make fun of Obama’s daughters, this is just wrong on every level.

    How come white children are never adopted by black families?… Anyone?… Anyone?

    • willynilly

      idk, hopefully they are. life is sad.

    • Truth Defenders

      Because white children have not been pushed by Hollywood scumbags as
      accessories and made trendy the way they do it to black kids. Hollywood
      scumbag actors have made it “cool” to get a dark skinned child (usually
      from Africa), what they don’t realize is that they do grow up.

      • Believer

        It is so sad that most of you that chose to comment, are so blinded by ignorance. A human being is a human being.

    • wicked woo

      Because blacks are only 13% of the population, yet have than a third of abortion in the USA. Also to adopt you usually need two married parents and financial stability. This makes almost any adoption a rarity among the black community.

      • Believer

        You are totally clueless and misinformed and deceived.

          • Mick

            Bingo—the statistics are truly unbelievable there isn’t going to be any decline as long as we keep shoveling money out—it’s better than having a job. Have a bunch of babies out of wedlock by men whose names are long forgotten collect the money from various forms of government subsidies and then turn the children out in the streets and let them do what they want. It is totally disgusting, immoral and wrong. But ask these lazy “hoes” to get a job and work to provide for the children and all hell breaks out and everyone is to blame but themselves!

        • Mohammed’s pink swastika

          abortion is the number one killer of African Americans in the United States. More than smoking, AIDS, heart disease, gang violence….

          I’m afraid it’s you that is misinformed and clueless, if you are actually interested in the truth there is a movie called Maafa made by black people and using actual evidence taken from the Library of Congress about how abortion what started as eugenics science to wipe out the black race.

        • badbadlibs

    Perry and panel needs to publicly apologize to the Romney family. Their comment and attitude toward Romney’s grandchild was utterly disgusting. To suggest that the child is a “token” and represented something other than the Romney’s love for that child is appalling and Racist. I have 5 black godchildren. yes, I said black not African American because they are “Americans” just like me. I love everyone of these children as if they were my own and for no other reason than they are offspring of my best friend whom i consider family. I am sick and tired of people like Perry getting away with their intolerant, racist and hateful views.

    • Mohammed’s pink swastika

      Right, I know of a white guy who was born in South Africa emigrated LEGALLY to America and then when asked on any tax forms what box he has to check when it says race. He can legally and truthfully say that he is an African American.

      The hyphenated American label is just another way that the left has put us in boxes to keep Americans segregated.

        • jerkstores

          I agree. They are deplorable. But they control most of the media and the education systems. That’s the standard line you run up against. If you act angry they’ll just use you as another example of an “unhinged right winger”. Only from time to time when they go too far like they did with the Robertson case do they get any blowback, but their narrative remains the same. The pro-Robertson people are just “bigots”!

          Also look to the Trayvon Martin case for something recent where there were no facts on the left’s side yet their narrative won with popular culture anyways.

          These guys are winning the war, the right only wins occasional battles. And there’s not much you or I can do about it.

    I am completely offended. As an adopted child which my placement family was not the ‘perfect situation’. Now my sister (who happens to be white) has recently adopted her second African child. We of the family think nothing of the color or differences. Similar to when I was adopted, the differences were overlooked. How many on that panel have adopted children or were adopted?

  • Mick

    I think that MSNBC is slowly be surely cutting its throat. The notion that this little twit – Melissa Harris-Perry and her little band of supposed comedic idiots have clearly taken leave of their collective senses. To make light of a good hearted family adopting a child—a child of any particular color is stupid, ignorant and downright ugly! I was adopted at birth and was afforded a loving home with parents who busted their asses every day to see that my adopted sister and I had what we needed to succeed in life. This very fortunate little black child will have what it needs—love, affection, education and an incredible opportunity in life by becoming part of the Romney family. To subscribe to a different political philosophy is one thing, but to carry that shallow hatred, nasty behavior to the extreme as the Melissa Harris-Perry show did is inexcusable and in my opinion the woman (and I use the term loosely) should be admonished and removed and shamed for her behavior

      • jimb82

        Not even close to equal. Pew Research did a study last year that said Fox was 45 percent news, 55 percent opinion, and although its opinion did lean toward Romney, they were also critical of Romney. msnbc was 15 percent news, 85 percent opinion, and its opinion was overwhelmingly anti-Romney and pro-Obama. Who is the conservative voice on msnbc equivalent to Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, Alan Colmes, Kirsten Powers, or a host of others? Joe Scarborough? Are you serious?

        • Tracy

          Sorry but those “studies” don’t mean much. They are also biased depending on who is conducting them. Now you want to debate over which network is MORE biased or based on opinions rather than real news? Ridiculous.

          Many people were and are critical of Romney. The man has been attacked from both sides. Politicians are pressured to choose sides. Networks are run by people trying to push a political agenda rather than simply reporting the news. Is it no wonder why things are so screwed up? Everyone has to pick a camp and stick with that agenda. Apparently you have. I’m neither for nor against any entity or person who expresses their views but I do have the sense to read between the lines and make up my own mind.

          Your comment seems a bit combative and defensive to me. You act as if I’ve said something so horrible. It seems to me that the end result, no matter who is doing the reporting, is the same. Yes, I am serious. Both networks are biased.

      How many rich blacks have adopted white babies? NONE! I almost guarantee that would never be allowed in this country. Come on now, as recent as the 1960’s interracial marriage was illegal in certain parts of America.

      • jaydee

        Interracial marriage is no longer law and I am sure there are no laws against blacks adopting white children. For many years whites could not adopt black children because the NAACP did not want it. Claimed that whites would not teach the kids black culture and they would lose their identity.

  • Tim James

    I do not remember when I have been more disgusted with a supposed journal team. The ignorance, and racism displayed by this group of “so called intelligent” is one of the key reasons racism will never go away. The supposed “tolerant and educated” left wing journalists do not deserve to be heard on national TV. These are the same people that talk down to a Phil Robertson, and yet they can not look in the mirror to see what they themselves are.

  • bobmead1960

    I found out that Melissa harris-parry’s mother is WHITE. And she calls this child a ‘token.’ Is she one also. And how come nobody on this panel said to her, hey stop and think what you are saying. They are almost as much fault as she is. Such hate mongers the left are! Stop this insanity. Someone adopting a child is bad???? I wish there were more bad people like the Romneys. Wonder how much she gives to charity. Maybe as much as Biden last year. $237 (not exactly but I know it was miniscule compared to his income).

  • Tracy

    Sorry, but those of you who are calling for Melissa Harris-Perry to be fired are wrong. She never said anything even remotely racist in this piece. Her guests on the other hand made some insensitive comments. She doesn’t deserve to be the target here.

    Many of you may have seen the article about Steve Martin’s ignorant joke about people of color a few weeks ago. It’s funny how that was looked upon as a “comedic genious” just making a joke. People were saying how everyone needs to lighten up and Steve Martin should not apologize because he had the right to joke about any subject. Well, let the same premise stand here. Ms. Harris-Perry has the right to have any guest she pleases on her show. The comments they make may not reflect her own beliefs.

    Sorry, but you can’t have it both ways. Racism exists on both sides and it’s in your face every day – like it or not. This clip does not promote racism. It simply points out the fact that it still exists. It may make some of you uncomfortable but there it is.

    By the way, the insensitive comments were made by white panelists. That in itself indicates there is something wrong. Should Harris-Perry have called them on it and berated her guests? I don’t know. Maybe. Obviously the piece was meant to draw a reaction. Either way, no matter what the comments were, the reaction would have been negative.

    • bobmead1960

      Nice try but this is indefensible. She is being hateful and prejudice. What if 2 white gays had adopted this child. She would have said nothing. And her mother is white!

      Wrong. This was not just an impromptu reaction. The panelists know what the topics are going to be, and I presume she has some editorial control over what goes on her show. Showing the picture was a setup for exactly the kind of reaction she got.

        They knew what they were doing but the host herself didn’t really make any comments of her own. The piece was meant to illicit a negative response regarding Romney and his family. I myself thought it was in poor taste but that seems to be the way the news is reported today.

        • jimb82

          And she’s just an innocent bystander? No way. Despite her sort-of apology she tweeted today, she knew what was going to happen when she put that picture up in front of four comedians who also knew it was coming, and she herself had a tasteless Kardashian joke ready.

          • jimb82

            Oh, and she could easily have taken the opportunity to praise the Romney family, especially considering her personal circumstances. Not a peep. This was put up there for ridicule, and she knew what she was doing.

          • kmansfield

            Oh my god. She tweeted it? lol.

    • Ewade

      She knew what she was doing in presenting this story was baiting her panelists, and they took her cue and ran with it. She can’t hide behind that because her default behavior is that of a blatant hating racist. And no matter what the response was, you, as a libtard progressive would be coming to their defense as you are probably paid to do.

      • Tracy

        Calling names doesn’t contribute to any INTELLIGENT conversation. I am neither liberal nor conservative and you don’t know me. Obviously you are ignorant all unto yourself. I don’t defend anyone based on their political agenda.

    • RosiesSeeingRed

      No, they were made by white liberals. Don’t you know white liberals are never racists??

      That’s a rule in the Book Of Liberal Double Standards.

      • Tracy

        That’s not relevant. It’s something made up and not factual. Therefore it is not germaine to the conversation. That is part of the problem. No one is beyond racism regardless of what political camp they belong to. Take it for what it is no matter who is making the comments. Maybe if we all did the same we would expose the true root of racism and stop it in its tracks before it destroys us all.

        • RosiesSeeingRed

          LOL — “Take it for what it is no matter who is making the comments.” says the person who also said “By the way, the insensitive comments were made by white panelists.

          • Tracy

            Yes. That’s exactly my point. There are so many comments about Harris-Perry but not her guests. I find it rather ridiculous that she is called racist and responsible for their comments. Why focus on one and not ALL? I know what I said before and don’t need you to point it out. Stop trying to twist my words.

            • RosiesSeeingRed

              I agree … I think they are ALL racists.

              • jimb82

                Maybe because the others don’t have a daily hour on a cable network and their names in the title? Of course she’s responsible for her guests and for the content she airs. As noted above, she orchestrated this whole thing – she’s not an innocent bystander that it just happened to.

            • lanahi

              Did they laugh at the comments of “the white guests”?

        • kmansfield

          Maybe if we all did the same we would expose the true root of racism and stop it in its tracks before it destroys us all.

          Did what?

          This is not germane either, Tribalism is a thing, it’s not going away. Our “leaders” are in fact responsible for the polarization, and feeding it with fear and austerity.

          Being a demagogue pays off for them, and it really doesn’t matter if the wedge is racism, sexism, classism, religion or an artificial construct like D or R. Its about the particular order of the groups within the hierarchy of society, and it has a currency.

          It was pointed out to to me that civil wars, or wars generally, result in a more homogenous groups with an area regardless of who wins.
          It’s interesting that Democrats support anti-tribalism and anti-racism, but are quite supportive of the opposite in Israel.

    • Toby66

      Do they feel the same way about Madonna and her children?

      • Tracy

        I’ve heard negative comments about Madonna, Angelina Jolie and others who adopt interacially. It doesn’t make it right but it happens. I think the point is that a politician is held to a different standard than an entertainer. On the face of it none of it makes sense to me. I don’t like when people use situations such as the Romney adoption to take cheap shots. It’s all in poor taste but that is what our society has become.

    • Steve_in_SoCal

      “Should Harris-Perry have called them on it and berated her guests? I don’t know. Maybe.”

      Kidding me, right?

      Granted, MHP may not have have said anything racist. However, standing/sitting by giggling at “jokes” and at least not trying to stop the conversation from diving directly into the lowest common denominator – she is at fault for.

      Again, if Newt, Mitt or someone the same had been on a show with all around making jokes about Obama adopting a white boy – then racism via association would have been levied. Admit it. you know it would have happened.

      How many times have we heard liberals say – “Disown the remarks of individual X or be guilty by association.”

    • kmansfield

      We know what the program is, MHP put up the picture of Romney’s family and pointed out the new addition – the adopted grand kid. She prompted her panelists find things to poke fun of, because that is what the partisan TV station MSNBC does. She baited them, I think unwittingly.

      We are in a period of political stagnation due to domination of big money, so identity politics is the focus.

      Since the Democratic party is a mish mash of minority groups, there is struggle between them for dominance within the party. If the Republicans can’t be blamed, they can blame the whites on the panel. It’s divide and conquer, but the most important point is that it’s diversionary. Don’t pay attention to the 30,000 each one of us know owe for the bailouts.

      Our government is a self interested leviathan, and a perpetual money sink.

    • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

      When you start from an assumption of racism, you pretty much end all rational thought process. This is the left’s millstone around their minds. They look at everything through a lie about the demons on the other side, and then toy with issues from there.

      The right is about individual liberty. Skin color doesn’t enter in to it. People obsessed with skin color are losers, no matter which party they think they are in.

  • Jan Civil

    You people are pretty desperate to latch onto this to try and make some kind of big stink.

    • Jan Civil

      Of course for y’all, all of the real racism is simply noting any white racism. What was racist about this? Did it upset you that she said this was a beautiful baby? What ginned-up phony outrage. You’re disgusting with that.

      Do you think it isn’t true, the lack of diversity in the GOP? But boy did you think you found a way to deflect and project all the racist policy and action here. Gawd, how stupid, how weak.

      Do you think speculation about this baby getting together with a Kanye West/Kardashian offspring is RACIST? Through what mechanism? I think that is a funny concept, not terrifically laugh out loud but see if you can buy a sense of humor somewhere, people.

      • Insert_Cool_Username

        Ah yes, the old “Can’t you take a joke?” deflection. Ages pass and man can’t seem to find any new tactics.

        Lack of diversity, you say? Any of these names ring a bell? Mia Love, Allen West, Marco Rubio, Herman Cain, Bobby Jindall, to name just a few. That’s rather diverse, if you ask me. But facts are stubborn and aren’t good at emotional manipulation, so they aren’t exactly the liberals forte.

        So your little spiel there… not impressed.

        Edit: As was pointed out to be by Jan Civil, I unfortunately indeed did misspell Allen West’s name the first time. Evidently, this undoes any validity of my argument, because typing the name the way I’ve done so thousands of times in my life (having both family and friends who bear the name) without meticulously scrutinizing it is an unpardonable sin. I will be sure to flagellate myself ten-thousand times in penance for the grievous error. (Incidentally, Jan, since you didn’t properly hyphenate Harris-Perry once, you’re guilty of the same error, I reckon.)

        • Jan Civil

          So, they all suck up to the white right wing way. What diversity? That’s you telling me the Uncle Ruckuses of the word represent their people, basically. Have a conversation with someone from the neighborhood about Allen West sometime. See, you don’t even really know his name to spell it right.

          How do you feature understanding that ‘can you imagine the wedding’ is a joke is deflection?
          What am I deflecting? What race am I do you think? What evidence do you have I am acting on racism or voting for racist policies? So you have mastered the argument ‘I’m rubber, you’re glue’. Congratulations.

          The whole exercise of seizing on this as ‘liberal’ [or ‘black’? But Ms Harris Perry is ‘mixed’, no?] racism is deflection and classic psychological projection in the first place, isn’t it? Who are you kidding do you think. You can kid yourself but the effort is laughable to me.

          Which of the panel hates which race, please clue me in on your delusion! Does the white guy that made the quip about finding the one black person at the convention hate whitey? That one is funny to someone because of the truth of it. Which of her racial parts does Harris-Perry hate the most do you think?

          How stupid.

          • RosiesSeeingRed

            “So, they all suck up to the white right wing way.”

            Because in the mind of a bigot like you, someone with black skin cannot think for themselves. They either group-think with other blacks, or they suck up to whites. Got it — you’ve made your bigotry loud and clear.

          • Insert_Cool_Username

            I have no idea what goes on inside Harris-Perry’s mind, what part of herself she loathes, or loves, or whatever. Quite frankly, I couldn’t care less.

            But I have to question what in the hell diversity has to do with anything, really. Even if the entire gamut of ethnic groups agree with you, one plus one plus still does not equal three.

            Incidentally, in you’re accusation of me “projecting” my own racism, you made a few accusations I never did. At what point did I ever accuse MPH of hating her own ethnicity? Did I ever say that her actions spawned from her being black? Oddly enough, no I didn’t. But you certainly went there. Maybe you’re the one with projection issues.

            And the Uncle Ruckus thing. I shouldn’t be surprised that you would go low enough to scrape at the bottom of that barrel, but still I was. I guess I was naive for expecting anything else. So what did you mean by that, then? Are all African-Americans , Indians, Latinos, etc. supposed to think the same? Like one giant Hive Mind with no dissent? Sounds a tad too… racist for me.

            “How stupid,” you say? Methinks that those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

          • Ewade

            You can’t possibly be implying that this shameful bag isn’t one of the most racist “personality’s on TV. Are you that deluded? Or just a shill.

          • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

            Your obsession with skin color has destroyed your ability to reason. First you accuse the GOP of a lack of diversity, then you decide that it’s very diversity is proof of a lack of diversity.

            That’s so circular it forms a singularity.

      • Richard Dean MacLean

        Sooooo, it’s not racist that there are more than twenty beautiful children in this picture, but the entire panel hones in on the black baby. No, you’re right. That’s not racist at all. (rolls eyes)

      • toongoon

        Its true Jan, there are fewer blacks in the GOP but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any blacks in the GOP.

        Blacks have swarmed to the dem’s like bees to honey, they are given their livelihood at the discretion of politicians. I guess that gives them some odd form of moral superiority huh.
        Harris Perry is an inciting hatred toward republicans and using race to perpetrate it.

    We’re all just covering up for our latent racism by treating black people as equals and welcoming them as friends and family, you see.

    If we don’t do this to cover up our latent racism, we’re being overtly racist.

    Heads, we’re racist; tails, we’re racist.

    We can do this with lots of things:Oppose Affirmative Action because blacks are equal? Racist. In favor of Affirmative Action? It’s because you’re covering up your racism and you’re probably not in favor of AA anyway.

    Neat parlor game.

  • Veronica Kenny-Carfora

    Listen, I don’t think Mr. Romney is a terrible person. I just think that his life experiences, upbringing, wealth, and the personal and business environment in which he has lived all his life, have made him extremely out of touch with ninety percent of the people in this nation. He, and some members of his family as well, have made some very stupid decisions and comments, not because they are bad people, just totally unable to relate to the average citizenry of the country. He thinks he can . . . but he can’t, and that’s why he opens himself up to commentary such as that on Ms. Harris-Perry’s show. As I read some of the comments below, I realize that many people do not themselves see the great divide, socially, economically, spiritually, and culturally between themselves and Mr. Romney. I read of an interesting study (poll) that found people had a tendency to identify themselves as being middle-class when they were actually far below that. Middle class folks people identified themselves as “upper middle class” when they were barely in what would be considered “middle-class.” Needless to say, people who were actually in what would be considered “upper middle class” thought they were wealthy or “upper class.” Because of this very odd and uniquely American phenomena, politicians such as Mr. Romney are very successfully convincing voters that “they are just like them, regular folks!” Mr. Romney and family seem to work at creating this illusion, but because he is grossly out of touch, many of his efforts, are horribly transparent and yes, laughable to a degree. Such as choosing his adorable, adopted, African-American grandchild to sit on his knee right smack-dab in the middle of the photograph amid all those sweet pink faces. It was a terribly transparent decision. Having the parents holding their child somewhere in the picture, still would have indicated the “diversity” of family, that he was trying to project, without being crass.
    Which I am certain he did not mean to do.

    Here are some examples of other rather vacuous things he has said or done: In trying to win the hearts and minds of southern voters, he proudly declared to a group of southern Nascar fans that, “I have many friends who are Nascar team owners!” Now you’ve got to at least smile at that one. How many multi-milllonaire Nascar team owner friends do you think those fans have as friends? Out of touch? Do you think? Then there was the “corporations are people” comment. Once again, because many of his friends and campaign donors are corporate CEO’s, presidents and owners of large corporations, of course he would see corporations as people. He sees them that way. The sad, laughable, out-of-touch thing is that he doesn’t seem to realize that the general population doesn’t perceive it the same way he does! Then of course, in his attempt to bring in the women votes, he made the very absurd “I have binders full of women” comment. Yes, he was trying to assure women voters that they would be a valued part of his administration, but the average woman didn’t quite get that message. I could go on and on, but I’ve said enough . . . more than enough actually :) !
    All I’m trying to say is that I understand, and so should others, that given Mr. Romney’s less than stellar laundry list of dumb and laughable measures he’s taken to win the hearts and minds of the American voter, the chuckles made by the panel were very understandable.

    • Toby66

      They adopted a baby. From your view that that makes him a horrible horrible person. K, then.

      That out of touch man you write of…and his family will be able to give this child hope for a better future, and for a fantastic life. Unless people like those on this “panel” mock and insult him.

      Yeah, gimme that guy. . . he’s really like me.

      • Veronica Kenny-Carfora

        A very dear elderly woman I knew was left a comfortable amount of money by her small business owner husband of 50 years. It was not a fortune by any means. But it gave her a yearly income of about 120K a year. She determined she needed only 40K a year to live on. She gave the rest to charity each year for the remaining 18 years of her life. She also worked for 3 years for free for the young couple who bought her husband’s business, to help them learn the “ins and outs” and keep it successful. She lived in a very lovely 4 room apartment co-op she purchased after her husband passed. Second floor-walk up. She grew up dirt poor and gave away her money out of gratefulness for the wonderful life she and her husband were able to build. They had no family connections to help them, they dealt with terrible discrimination as their parents were Irish immigrants. THAT is a generous, good, charitable, individual, doing good works simply out of the goodness of one’s heart. Romney made a charitable tax deductible donation to a University that provided him with connections that would benefit him and his career. There is a difference.

        • IndypendentIn09

          Leave it to a Romney-hater to criticize him for not donating millions to the *right* charity you approve of.

          Seriously – that is just pathetic.

          And for the life of me, I don’t understand idiots who think there is some kind of monetary advantage to getting a tax deduction for charitable donations. Do you people honestly not grasp that the deduction is NEVER anything close to 100%?

      • poljunkie

        I agree toon. Although I didn’t agree with Romney politically on many issues, as a person, he seems like a great family man of much integrity.

    • Cherryblossom3

      Wow. I feel very sorry for you. This wealthy individual has given so much time and money to help others. Remember the 12 year old boy who was a friend of Mr. Romney? He was dying of cancer and asked Mr. Romney to sit with him and help him painstakingly right out a will. He was concerned with whom would get which of his belongings. Mr. Romney spent an entire afternoon with this boy giving him great comfort. Do you think Obama (or most other liberals) would do that? Most of what Mr. Romney does to help others, he does anonymously.
      And why must you compare everybody against one another? Are you not content with where you are in life? If not, do something about it as you are in control of your own destiny.
      I’m not saying Mr. Romney is perfect (I disagree with him much politically and religiously) but he is a good man and I am tired of others besmirching him. Can you not just disagree with him but respect the much good he does in this world?

    • kmansfield

      it’s not about Romney. It’s about MHP and MSNBC and projecting racism.
      This comes from Corey Robin, one of the more thoughtful intellectuals of the left, before the election, and before she got her show:

      http://coreyrobin.com/2011/09/23/melissa-harris-perry-psychologist-to-the-stars/

      Harris-Perry contends that “a more insidious form of racism” than the traditional kind may explain white liberal dissatisfaction with Obama. Where white liberals presumably gave the much less effective Clinton a pass in 1996, Harris-Perry anticipates a defection among those very same voters in 2012. Why? Because they’ll act on their alleged “tendency…to hold African-American leaders to a higher standard than their white counterparts.” The next election, she claims, “may be a test of another form of electoral racism.”

      His assessment:

      Unlike some folks, I don’t think Harris-Perry’s problem is her tendency to cry racism. No, it’s far deeper than that. It’s her tendency to reduce political arguments to psychological motivations. Because this is hardly the first time that Harris-Perry has speculated about the underlying sources of liberal-left disgruntlement with Obama. Back in May, she criticized Cornel West and Tavis Smiley for their critique of Obama, arguing that it was driven more by personal pique than political principle. Again, with little evidence to support her claims. Now, she launches a similarly psychologically driven theory of white liberal-left disgruntlement, only this time the putative motivation is racism.

      Psychology may or may not play a role in politics. But if it does, we need evidence-based psychologists, not fact-free astrologists, to explain it to us.

      So what was her point displaying the picture? It was context free, she asked her guests to speculate on what it meant.

      I think Caleb Howell is correct, it was projecting a tokenizing motivation for the Romney family adopting the baby. His cousin, Jon Huntsman has adopted chinese children, and Mormons do adopt a lot of kids generally.

      This crap is so tiring, and I’m of the left.

      • poljunkie

        She is just a mean spirited wench.

  • tmcbpatriot

    Funny that republicons are so offended by words while republican politicians are actually cutting programs that help defenseless children. Hypocrites one and all.

    • Steve_in_SoCal

      What programs?
      The 99-ers who have been on unemployment for 2+ years because of this swell economy?
      DId you not hear? The unemployment rate is 7% and Obama and his team have said the economy is improving. Did you not miss summer of Recorvery 2009?

      A food stamp nation with 46M recieving said aid? That has increased 50% in the last 5 years? Did you not hear about Recovery Summer 2009?
      Cash for Clunkers. Cash for Caulkers. Cash for “Green” companies. Perhaps if O-had a clue- not spent this money on his base, he’d have the money to extend these programs you talk about.

    • toongoon

      Does the irony completely escape you that you are commenting on a thread about a black leftist attacking a black child?

          • tmcbpatriot

            Yes only liberals get abortions. Republicons cut social programs that actually hurt living children. Do you care about them or are they just govt. tit suckers?

            • toongoon

              So let me get this straight, you think they are just living off the government so they should never be born, is that right? The left’s answer to having poor people is killing them before they take a breath? If that is the case why is the government paying for more people than ever before to survive.

              Here is a better question, why have we killed off our own children only to bring in illegal aliens to suck off the public tit?

    MSNBC out of control and needs to be under new management. All you idiots paying Comcast $200+ a month this is what you get for you money liberal jerks from Philly not even NYC trying to run a ultra leftist TV Station – Philly is about as far left is LA, NY, Houston,

    Where is MSNBC laughter and jokes when a actor or actress or some other white people that adopt a black child or any other race color.. This is so petty..Didn’t your parents teach you any better.. Don’t you have other news to report that is better then to laugh and joke just because the Romney’s adopted a black child.. I am happy for them..

  • Chuck10

    I would like to see Melissa Harris-Perry’s Christmas card, what do you think the odds are that there is a white person in it? Adopting a child is a very brave thing to do and MSNBC makes fun of people who don’t care if the child is white or black, shame on you.

          Even scarier, is that Pelosi put her on a fast track to House-speaker to keep her from splitting the caucus. Talk about eating your seed corn.

        Karl Rove has no power and hence no interest in maintaining it. The left leaning media, which is most of the media, lies even worse than the left-wing politicians like obama, reid, pelosi, schultz which may be difficult to fathom.

        • kmansfield

          Karl Rove has no power?
          Chamber of Commerce and Karl Rove join to crush 2014 tea party candidates

          [G]rassroots activists have re-framed the GOP’s old “pro-business” stance into a “pro-free markets” positioning that eschews corporate welfare and taxpayer-funded crony capitalist giveaways to industries that make major political contributions and reap big government contracts paid for by voters.

          The Journal says that joining the Chamber of Commerce will be groups like Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, who “are preparing an aggressive effort to groom and support more centrist Republican candidates.”

          Meanwhile, Rove’s group, American Crossroads, will be operating more from the shadows this time.”

          “The move was prompted in part by the less-than-savory image Crossroads has developed with the GOP’s conservative base.”

          “Grassroots members said they were “unwilling to let Mr. Rove and his colleagues decide which Senate candidates get the most support,”’

          He has $50 million dollars of no power to make in political contributions, or spending on campaign advertising. Winning elections are all about accessing the spoils for both parties.

          I’d like to point out that the Chamber of Commerce eschewing pork and loop holes is contradictory to their raison d’etre.

        So when a socialist liberal progressive media type insults someone’s family because of race it’s OK as long as no one was killed. It’s amazing isn’t it? Also, don’t forget Al Sharpton failed presidential run; when he stole all the contributions afterwards.

    White people voted for a black man over a White woman for president. When do you see Black people voting for a White candidate over a Black candidate? Never.

    Black people regularly use derogatory terms like “cracker” to describe White people. And yet White people who do nothing more than quote government statistics that show Black people in an unfavorable, though accurate, light are tarred for being racists.

    Racism is alive and well in the Black community. This is just one more example. Note to Harris-Perry, we White people lock our car doors whenever a stranger approaches, regardless of race. Only a racist Black man would think it’s because he’s Black.

        More nonsense from the White hating Black community. You hate mongers can always dredge up some baseless statistic other racists of your ilk compiled to further the pretense.

        • Tim

          Conservative democrats and conservative republicans nearly unanimously opposed civil rights. The southern democrats of that era closely resembled, in ideology, rush Limbaugh and glenn beck. The current democratic party, with left of center ideology bares no resemblance to the conservative democrats, especially of the south, in that day.

          It is freaking hilarious watching conservative republicans acting like they and not liberal minded people were the ones who fought for civil rights. Its hysterical.

          • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

            Limbaugh and Beck are NOTHING like the segregationist Democrats. There is no use talking to someone who is willing to lie and smear those fine men. You have no clue what those two support.

            Limbaugh gives mic time to Snerdley, but to no one else on his staff. You don’t know who Snerdley is, do you! No, you don’t because you’re too busy with your commie talking points.

              And you are comical beyond belief. Acting as if the current democrats resemble anything close to the southern conservative democrats during the civil rights movement then saying the republicans have disowned david duke who was an elected Republican official as recently as the 1990’s.

              If you throw out the political party affiliation, the primary common denominator is that the KKK and the CURRENT republican party are both very conservative in their political beliefs.

                For decades moveon.org has tried to find a racist remark to hang on Rush and Beck. They record the shows and go over them because they would love nothing more than to destroy them by charging them with racism. Fifteen hours a week for decades yet they’ve got nothing!

                • Tim

                  Limbaugh got run from ESPN for making remarks about how McNabbs recieved too much credit for his teams success because he was black. He told another black person to take the “bone out of their nose”.

                  I am sure you love the guy, but you can’t reinvent him outside of your own head.

                • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

                  Limbaugh was talking about the reporter’s racism regarding their favoritism of McNabb who was a C+/B- quarterback. He said they went easy on him only because he was black. That is not a racist comment but a person pointing out racism by providing an example of their racism.

                  There should be a highlight reel of McNabb’s pathetic passes, many of which badly missed their targets when the receivers were only a few yards away.

                  Limbaugh apologized and said he feels guilty about the bone in your nose comment which was made in the 1970’s. He said it because he could not understand the caller and asked them to call back.

                  In fact, bones in the nose are cultural, not racial. There are tribes of people in South America and maybe Africa who have worn bones in their noses and maybe they still do. It is not a reference to a person’s skin color but to what some people do.

                  Maybe the guy sounded like he had a bone in his nose making his speech undecipherable.

The Republicans wrote the laws that the Demons stood against on both of these issues! WoW!

        • Tim

          Do you think there is currently a member of the KKK that votes democrat? Your delusional ramblings aside, aligning current democrats with southern conservative democrats during the civil rights movement is probably one of the more hilarious things I see people like you do.

          Conservative southern Democrats opposed civil rights. The Democrats opposed to the civil rights movement weren’t Democrats with the center-left ideology of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. They were, in fact, conservatives – especially from the south – with far more in common with Limbaugh, Beck, etc. than any modern mainstream Democrat. When people say that someone like notorious segregationist Bull Connor was a Democrat, they are technically right on the party label, but when it comes to ideology Connor and the rest of those opposed to racial integration were conservatives.

          Conservatives opposed civil rights. At the time of the civil rights movement, outside of the parties, conservatives were opposed to the civil rights movement. Barry Goldwater, a conservative whose brand of politics would soon take over the Republicans in the guise of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, opposed civil rights law. He claimed that he viewed it as a states rights issue, and actually favored equal rights, but the practical effect of his stance would be to allow segregation – in the south “states rights” meant “Jim Crow.” The conservative intellectual movement – William F. Buckley’s National Review, for instance, opposed what they viewed as law-breaking protests by Dr. Martin Luther King.

          But go ahead and pretend as if those that fought for civil rights in any way resembled the current republicans and those that opposed resembled current democrats. Because it makes you look clownish.

          • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

            Yes, if there are any current KKK members, they would be Democrats., just like their grandaddies – or like the late Senator Harry Byrd.

            This notion that today’s Republicans were Democrats is just another lying fantasy dreamed up by the Democrats to whitewash their long racist history.

            The Dems are still running against Goldwater and Buckley – too, too funny. You’ll need to do better than that.

            Conservatives do NOT oppose civil rights – they support them. But you can’t get past the leftist/commie talking points.

            The Jim Crow laws were all Democrat laws!! As was the KKK. Democrats fought a civil war to keep slavery.

            Today the places with the worst crime and the worst economies are all run by… you guessed it DEMOCRATS!

            If the Democrat line of thinking worked better, blacks would have jobs instead of welfare and single mothers (70% of all black births are to single mothers!) as the order of the day.

                  It was just a few years ago when Byrd showed up on one of the Sunday talking heads shows and said blacks weren’t the ONLY n*gg*rs, only he didn’t use the asterisks. He said the forbidden word.

                  IOW, blacks ARE n*gg*rs!!!! Byrd was and is venerated by Democrats. He was a racist just like Melissa Harris-Perry and most of her liberal panel are racist.

                  Byrd is still venerated and he voted Democrat in lockstep fashion, including for the disastrous ObamaTax that is going to turn 2014 into an economic nightmare.

                  Some conservative … Byrd voted for partial birth abortion.

                  BTW, the Democrat Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

                • Tim

                  He said there were “white nig ers”, and then later profusely apologized saying it was a term from his childhood and he should have never used it. He called joining the KKK in his youth the greatest mistake of his life. The NCAAP rated him 100 percent on his voting record over two terms in voting in alignment with them.

                  His actual quote on current race relations was…

                  “They’re much, much better than they’ve ever been in my lifetime … I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us … I just think we talk so much about it that we help to create somewhat of an illusion. I think we try to have good will. My old mom told me, ‘Robert, you can’t go to heaven if you hate anybody.’ We practice that. There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time, if you want to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country”

                  After the interview he said,

                  “I apologize for the characterization I used on this program … The phrase dates back to my boyhood and has no place in today’s society … In my attempt to articulate strongly held feelings, I may have offended people.”

                  In June 2005, Byrd proposed an additional $10 million in federal funding for the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington, D.C., remarking that, “With the passage of time, we have come to learn that his Dream was the American Dream, and few ever expressed it more eloquently.”

                  Either way he was elected in virginia where deep rooted racism has been alive and well for a long long time, and he was very conservative on many issues such as gay rights.

                • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

                  Federal spending?? He wanted to use FEDERAL spending?? To me MLK was one of THE greatest Americans to have ever lived. But all monuments in DC for private individuals are pad for privately as was the Vietnam Memorial and the WWII memorial.

                  But leave it to a l;iberal to spend be generous with tax payer money.

                  Rush Limbaugh could give $100 million OF HIS OWN money for such a cause, but for the left, it would not be enough. That is the double standard the left lives by.

                  To see the double standard in action one need go no further than the original topic of this thread. A family like Romney can adopt a black child, but it isn’t praised – it’s laughed at. It is made fun of. The family becomes the butt of jokes and derision from people like you, claiming it was done to distract from the Reagan administration or some other such utter nonsense. It’s pretty disgusting.

                  Meanwhile, millions of black families didn’t step forward to adopt this child – they did.

                • elbucho

                  Robert C Byrd defended the KKK when in his 40’s – after spending his 20’s and 30’s recruiting for them. He wasn’t a mere Grand Wizard, he was the freaking Exalted Cyclops (aka supreme leader of the KKK.) He was not just a marginal member, as you assert.
                  Modern conservatism, is more about fiscal terms and size of government. Only really old people, or those that are too lazy to form a thought of their own still think conservative means “whites in the front and blacks in the back”, because that is the line the liberal progressives feed them daily. Go back to your liberal buddies and continue to point and laugh at the Romney family photo, like the good little sheep you are.

                  He was never “grand master” of the klan either, and on his deathbed he said joining the kKK in his youth was “the worst mistake of his life”…

                  He opposed gay marriage, was in favor of the clinton impeachment… but oddly as you are so certain he is a racist, the NAACP rated his voting record as 100 percent in line with their mission.

                  And I will take your anger and name calling as your concession in this argument.

              • Meekrob

                Of course you fail to mention that the GOP ostracized and marginalized Duke, unlike the Dems and Sheets Byrd.

                Incidentally you should check out Duke’s website. It reads just like DU.

              • elbucho

                Robert C Byrd, former recruiter for the KKK. You could blame that on his youth, but he spent a great deal of time defending the KKK after his 40th birthday. He is a Democrat with the record for the largest career in Congress, and only recently left office in 2010. David Duke hasn’t served in Congress for more than 20 years, and has never been considered a ‘prominent’ member of the party. Seems the intellectual dishonesty is so far all yours.

        Who is this clown named Tim? His defense against the cruel and racist remarks against the Romney family and the infant is…”Look – squirrel!”

        “Waah, waah, waah, waah! It’s okay if they are racist because if we are racist, I can always falsely accuse you of racism from 50 years ago.”

  • barely_free

    Just goes to show you the so called open minded people are the real racists. I find it amusing that every month some A$$ at MSNBC makes another racist or derorgotory against there political opponents. These guys need to really grow up.

    Forget the whole black/white thing..why are all the boys wearing blue,the girls wearing pink but they dress little Kieran in a pink outfit?? WTF?? Great now he’s going to be the cross dressing black Romney

      You still need to make racist remarks even after it has been appointed out the racism of the initial remarks?

      Melissa Harris-Perry has apologized for her cruel remarks, but you haven’t had enough of the cruel remarks, so you added your own??

      • Maxwell Gold

        Racist remarks?? I’m just pointing out what the kid is wearing..I didn’t name him Kieran..which is Celtic for black or dark. Im just pointing out facts..and from what I’m reading on your posts..I see why you are ok with all of this

        • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

          Who wrote: “Great now he’s going to be the CROSS DRESSING BLACK Romney?”

          It doesn’t get any lower than that. An infant is the target of your denigrating remarks. Two insults in one sentence, one focusing on his color.

          Don’t even try to call someone a cross dresser and then claim the race aspect isn’t a put down.

          Why all this attention to the adopted baby if it isn’t a racial put down? Oh, it’s because the baby is a cross dresser. Puuuleeeeze!

      I have to say that this is once of the dumbest comments that I have ever seen!!! Its amazing that you mention that adopting a black baby is stupid while MY BROTHERS AT ARMS are overseas giving up their lives. Do you not realize I along with those who are overseas fighting daily do so regardless to what race you are and what race goes with what race? You really need to take a look at yourself as a human being and stop with the hatred.

  • http://www.newlogicentertainment.com/ New Logic ENT.

    For a woman who’s clearly of mixed parents this is really sick to see them MOCK A BABY which was adopted out of love by the Romney’s. Sorry but this video, and show makes me sick. This sort of stupidity needs to never happen again or I say fire this dumb bitch.

    • Tim

      they mocked the baby? How did you arrive at that conclusion? They were clearly mocking the look of the photo with the most whitebread family on earth and a black baby that kind of stands out.

      I think it was stupid and wrong of them to even discuss it, but mocking the baby? cmon.

      • http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/ TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

    Do a google search on this topic and you’ll wonder how much outrage, or preferably reasoned criticism, is necessary before we stop asking where the outrage is? Is it just that the wrong people are outraged? Harris-Perry should personally apologize to the Romneys and apologize to her viewers for unprofessionalism and move on.

    Melissa’s mistake was allowing the picture to be put up and commented on, but she didn’t say anything negative. She said the baby is gorgeous. Her guests (who are all comedians, no?) were the ones making comments. Comedians use race as the base for jokes all the time, but using a baby is pretty low.

    How about instead we talk about how beautiful it is to see a family like that in America today. How often do we see people with such beautiful, large families with good, wholesome values? That’s why I loved the Romneys.

    Was it Democrat FDR, who pushed us into WWII?
    Was it um, George Washington who led the forces against the greatest military in the world?
    Maybe it was Carter who allowed the Iranian embassy to be taken over, leaving it for Reagan to clean it up, which he did by the way, before he even got into the oval office.
    I know, it was Lincoln who gave us the Emancipation Proclamation, right?
    How about Clinton, who “didn’t have sex with that woman” (wink wink).

    Its not really an apology when all you are sorry for is that people didn’t get it.

  • kmansfield

    Congratulations Tim, you managed to derail this sub-thread.
    Like you told every one, this article isn’t about abortion, It’s not about Megan Kelly either. That was last week’s outrage. Liberals won. Oh, what great fun was made of Megan Kelly’s cluelessness, even the Daily Show did a skit.

    She is not racist. Our Santa Claus is skin color depicted as white, usually. (a black guy in my twitter time line said he prefers to think of Santa as white and his presents as reparations. )

    St. Nicolas was mediterranean, he was turkish. Depending on your partisan political needs, or the season, he can be cast as any color.

  • Cherryblossom3

    Tim, inference can be hard so let me help you out. The party toongoon is speaking of supports letting people legally take the lives of infants in the womb or partially born. So, yes, the democrat party has made possible the slaughter of more than 50 million children.

  • CLT Engineer

    Did Megyn Kelly turn you down for a date in High School? Or did she not return your fan mail? Why are you obsessed? She stated an accepted fact, A fact accepted by society for thousands of years…. If you don’t want to believe it, then don’t, or come up with some fact disproving that Jesus was white. As far as Santa Claus, seeing he was a mythic figure from northern Europe, I seriously doubt that he was black. Sheesh, deflect and divert much.

    So just so I understand, you equate someone stating their belief that Jesus was white and Santa is white to making fun of a family giving a child a family… you definitely have something lacking in the moral department.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    So is that the new liberal rule? Stating that someone is white or black is racist, but making fun of a white family who adopts a black child is A-OK, as long as it is done by a black and/or white liberal?

  • kmansfield

    Tim, you cannot criticize the right, from an even further right position and pretend you are left. Long Term Unemployment is a huge problem and the stockmarket is not the economy. The DLC Dems like Obama are in bed with WallStreet and they only care about the poors when they need votes.

    Yes. to me it seems to be a version of the Blue-eyes/Brown-eyes experiment, played out on-line. It’s the brown-eyes’ turn to be correct.

    In this morality play, Blue-eyes motivations are bad, always.
    The hierarchy of correctness more complicated when it’s between Blue eyed dems/liberals, but it’s generally the same, sometimes it’s necessary to look at the recessive color traits.

Mostly by people who don’t have a leg to stand on.

    Sheesh, everytime I see people defend things like this from places like MSNBC, makes me realize how society and the education system has failed this country. Instead of wondering if Jesus is white or black, you should read his teachings and try to live your life like that.

    Her mother, Diana Gray, who is white, taught at a community college and

    Why is not surprising that someone who demands that Santa Claus and Jesus are white is so wrong about so many other things as well. First of all St Nicholas was born in Turkey and died in Turkey. He wasn’t from Northern Europe. He became a Greek Bishop of Myra in Lycia. So at best he had a middle eastern look to his skin tone. Sorry to burst your racist bubble but st. nick was not “Northern Europe” white nor did he ever live in northern europe.

    Secondly, Jesus was born in the middle east (if you chose to believe in him), his skin tone was almost certainly not white as you would describe someone from northern Europe as you erroneously claimed st Nicholas was from. It must make you so uncomfortable that Jesus looked more like Osama Bin Laden than he did like you or people from northern europe. And that kind of puts a smile on my face.

    But… its really not about whether Jesus or Santa is white or black or something in between, its about racist people like you demanding that one or two fictional characters or someone that might be a real person who lived 2000 plus years ago is white and that people born in Turkey were automatically white. Its laughable on so many levels. But thanks for piling on with your racist diatribe. We all got a kick out of it over here…
