Below, via The Daily Caller, is a segment that aired yesterday on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry’s show.

A controversial word? This sounds intriguing. Indelibly printed? Intended as derogatory? I’m starting to get an idea here. Oh do let’s keep listening.

Oooh, conceived of by wealthy white men. Intended to diminish … I’m with you, Harris-Perry, he said knowingly, with a wink and a nod.

OMG, President Obama has been labeled by this word. There were many people for whom he’d never be more than that one disparaging word. But he embraced it! He’ll be that!

I’ve got my outrage pants on and a cup of coffee I’m just dying to spit out in shock. I know where you’re going with this. That one word, that awful word. Say the word Melissa!!

OHHHH SNAP. It’s Obamacare!!!! I totally spit out that coffee I was telling you about earlier. That was a sneaky trick indeed, oh quite so. I thought for sure it was that other word. You know the one. I’ll whisper it: Hawaiian … !!!

Ohhhh, wait now I get it. Obamacare is like the N-word! Rich white people use it to insult black people. That is so totally true, Melissa. I was at the store the other day? And there were these kids? And they went to the back of the store? And the clerk was like, “oh great, we got some Obamacares here.” Well I don’t have to tell you I washed my ears out with soap after that. Mortified I say. Mort. I. Fied!

Melissa Harris-Perry, you national treasure you, I have to share a secret with you. Are you ready? It’s a huge secret. One indelibly printed in the pages of this conversation that we’re currently having, like it or not. And that secret is this secret, which will now no longer be a secret, because I’m telling you the secret. Have I built it up enough yet? ARE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT YET?!???!?

I knew you were going to say Obamacare. [DROPS MICROPHONE. WALKS AWAY. WALKS BACK AND AWKWARDLY PICKS UP UNWISELY DISCARDED MICROPHONE.]

You know how I knew? Because you work for MSNBC, MHP. Can I call you MHP? You see, when working at MSNBC, MHP, calling criticism of Obama racist is SOP. If you don’t do it you’ll be UE, just like ARB. (That’s Alec Rae Baldwin for those who are not HIP.) So saying that using the term Obamacare is a racist slur against the President in order to diminish his accomplishments is as unsurprising as it is laughably weak.

AAAAND scene.

Melissa Harris-Perry, like many liberals, is trying on a new tactic. First, Obamacare was the greatest advancement mankind had seen since that time Sonny and Cher split up, and repubicans were going to rue the day they didn’t stand with Obama and take ownership of it, allowing it to become his legacy, and his alone. Oh there would be so much rueing you don’t even know.

Then it changed. It was still awesome, but people were getting a bad taste for it because meanies were saying mean things about it out of meanness. Next, it was still awesome, but we have to admit the website doesn’t work so well, but hey, this is about more than just a website. After that, it was awesome, and sure the President misspoke about some parts, but the main thing to know was that it was going to be wicked sweet once some stuff got fixed (which stuff was probably sabotaged by conservatives anyway.)

And now? Well now calling it Obama’s legacy is racist. Because Bin Laden.

After making this fatuous and blatantly flip-floppy argument, our intrepid host goes on to list the many wondrous and unappreciated achievements of the One, because heaven knows no one on TV ever says anything good about President Obama. The last few minutes of that segment are so cringe-inducingly saccharine doctors recommend you don’t watch it more than once per year for fear of diabeetus.

Volumes could be written about the cult-like devotion so pathetically spewed in the above clips. But as Right Scoop readers are no doubt already planning to say in the comments: who watches that channel anyway? And it’s true, the ratings aren’t exactly approaching public access level. Which is why I’ll just leave you with this humble suggestion. A new motto for the network.

MSNBC. We put the ANT back in SYCOPHANT.

UPDATE(TRS) : I understand there is a problem with the comments now showing up properly in this thread. I’ve contacted DISQUS and will get it working as quick as we can. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    This is the same brainless twit that said children do not belong to their parents, but to the community,or something to that effect.Good grief. Where does the lunacy end with this bunch of leftist hacks?

    • toongoon

      It takes a village communist to raise a child. Just ask any democrat.

    • Subie201

      They need to be toppled one by one…Bashir was a good start!

      • trytothink

        Nothing will change as long as the network ownership and management remain the same.

        I’d rather leave damaged idiots like Bashir in place than to replace him with a fresh liberal face who thinks the same things but hasn’t made the mistake yet of being honest with the viewers.

  • toongoon

    Is that the same obamacare who left four Americans to die in Benghazi and lied about why they were attacked in the first place??

    Are we going to have to start calling him the O-word now?

    • trytothink

      It might be the obamacare that subverted the Constitution numerous times. Or possibly it might be the obamacare that sicked his IRS on his political opponents.

    Where’s the tampon earrings?

    • 57thunderbird

      I had forgotten about those. :-)

  • Watchman74

    If I didn’t know any better I’d think I was watching a SNL skit. It would be funny if she wasn’t so dead serious.

    • lawngren

      This will probably be required viewing in schools across America this week. It will be labelled “brave, honest journalism”.

      I hope you haven’t eaten recently when you read this.

  • nwwapiti

    Is this woman insane?

    • NYGino

      Of course she is. That is a prerequisite to employment at MSNBC.

    • Attila_the_hun

      No she isn’t. She is a Black version of KKK grand wizard.

  • OneThinDime

    Would love to read the comments but they are outside of the thread boundary and in dark blue, unreadable.

    • Bill589

      Been there. I switched from ie to Firefox and it fixed this and other problems.

      • Patriot077

        Wish I could but my virus protection while using Firefox crashed my last computer. It somehow creates an unstable platform and screws up the OS.

        • OneThinDime

          I get a lot of extra pop-ups, ads and spam despite having ad-blocker when I use FireFox

      • OneThinDime

        Thanks much.

      unfortunately you have to refresh (sometimes a few times) for the white background to come back. We are working on the problem.

      • Patriot077

        Thank you, Scoop. I have this trouble quite often myself. Until last week I thought it was my computer :)

      • OneThinDime

        Thank you. It only happens on certain threads….miss the intellect when I cannot read the great posts.

  • John Queue

    Seriously, who funds this stuff? Where do they find these people, the local insane asylums? I am seriously thinking mslsd is exactly that…an asylum for drug addicts with irreversible brain damage.

  • Alborn

    Lord this is one sick woman. She reminds me of self-hating Jews like Soros. She hates the white part of her heritage. Her poor mother should have had a black female have her babies for her so Perry would not have had any white blood in her white hating body. It must be exhausting to hate so much. Sicko is all MSNBC has anymore.

  • nkra

    This is… journalism?! Once upon a time, reporters reported the news…. and then along came this mean president who repealed the Fairness Doctrine…. and then everything was his fault. The end.

    • toongoon

      Hah!! Got ya there. There is no such thing as journalism anymore. American Pravda has replaced it.

      • OneThinDime

        Journalism now resides with the bloggers!

  • Matt Fleming

    When our embassy in Benghazi was attacked and the government didn’t send reinforcements and later lied about it to win a Presidential election, what do we call that…OBAMACARE!!!

  • Press Watchusa

    Caleb – I am so glad YOU watch these “shows” for us

    You must have a very strong stomach

    I could never do it!

    It seems that MSLSD is – “hopelessly lost in space”

  • mediaaccess

    I’m with you RS. – Puke!

  • JimNEPA2_0

    If this were a movie, the real President would be locked in a tower with an iron mask on his face while this impostor and his insane clown posse were destroying America and re-writing history on a daily basis in support of themselves.

  • harglide

    Oh, snap, WHAT A FLIPPIN IDIOT!!!

  • HCTUB

    . Oh and when obama says something what is that called , OBAMALIE , and when he lies what is he called ( Pinocchio ) PERIOD

    My little box says, “Join the Discussion”. The “discussion” is all in blue. Nothing makes it go away.
    :( and grrrrrrrrr

      Did you see my update? I apologize this is happening and hopefully DISQUS can help figure out why this is happening.

      • OneThinDime

        This thread is fixed for me now, thanks Scoop.

      • badbadlibs

        No, I didn’t see the update. Drats.
        Thanks for the apology, not even blue screens will keep me from RS! That is unless all the threads turn blue. :(

    • lawngren

      11:29 ET Confirm problem fixed. At least I can see everything.

      I’ve got it figured out. It’s not Disqus. It’s “The Rise Of The Machines”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umH0ZpLaAwI

  • lawngren

    WHAT accomplishments?

    “Rescued that American automotive industry”HAHAHhahahahaha….

    Is she auditioning for a stand-up comedy slot? If so, she’s got my vote. Jon Stewart couldn’t have done it better.

    I wonder who is listening to tampon head.

  • snowyowl

    Miss Tampon swinging from her ears should take the silence oath.” I will not speak stupidity”. This phony professor is another fraud that continues to feebly try and divide this country. She can not be a real educated individual if so she would understand that Obama loves the term “Obamacare” he embraced it. It is his legacy. Now that it has failed to move individuals to purchase the “unaffordable plan”, the hired Obama guns are on television screaming “racism”. Hah, this is rich from a dunderheaded fool like Miss Tampon who I suspect never used one in her life. I think she is one of those that Americans will be paying for a sex change under ACA. For the rest of “thinking women” that have paid for their own contraceptives, abortions, and health care plans for the last three decades we do not need this! She should shove that tampon and her racist remarks up the only true Orifice she has.
