Melissa Harris-Perry Panel Mocks Black Romney Grandchild As Token

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.

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.

Resorting to name calling because you don’t have any valid points reflects poorly on you, not on me. Watching you do That really made me giggle though. I do not know what Melissa has in her heart, ansd neither do you (unless you are Melissa?). It is a far stretch to accuse her of being racist because of her laugh. She didn’t make ANY racially charged comments. Everything you have said is your own biased interpretation of what you THINK she meant. None of which can be counted as actual fact.

Again your self-servient lies reek of dishonesty, ignorance, and arrogance. Name calling? I simply told you the truth of what’s in YOUR heart. Your patronizing remarks not only speak loud and clear of what’s in your heart. But the fact that you think they don’t, proves your dishonesty and/or (probably both) ignorance. And of course I “know” the racism (as well as other desperate insecurities) that are in Melitha’s heart. And I assure you, so does she! (and the executives at NBC) Otherwise, why was she forced to apologize? Please.. trying to claim my honesty has no “validity” is weakly childish at best. Liberal sheepish ignorance never ceases to amaze.

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

Actually it was Republicans who made it possible for the Civil Rights Acts to pass. A higher percentage of Republicans in the Senate voted for it than Democrats did.

Despite what you believe, the historical facts prove otherwise.

Tim
Guest

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.

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.

Limbaugh and Beck are a lot closer to them than the current democrats. Thats the point.

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.

You’re wrong. Look who made the racist remarks – it wasn’t Beck or Rush – it was the msnbc panel!

Liberals are consumed by race. CONSUMED! Everything is a group or a block, race being the primary one.

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!

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.

TheDoctorWhoCuresCancer

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Byrd was a southern conservative. Plain and simple.

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.

Byrd is dead, he is a old news. A southern conservative of the slave state mindset. On his deathbed he said that joining the klan in his youth was the greatest mistake of his life.

Duke was voted into office while he was the grandmaster of the knights of the klu klux klan as a republican in the 90’s and he is still politically active.

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.

Anyone…of any political view…who would make fun of someone’s family…is despicable. Whether or not they agree with my views is irrelevant.

She’s an absolute racist and a disgrace. I think the entire staff at MSNBC must also think along the same lines. If they feel comfortable behaving like this on live TV, I can only imagine what goes on behind close doors.

There are degrees. Her words have never resulted in anyone’s death (Freddie’s Fashion Mart) or public scandal (Tawana Brawley), unlike certain other distinguished msnbc hosts . . . .

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.

Please don’t make the mistake of confusing “the left” broadly, for Democratic party operatives who dominate a TV Channel/ unofficial PR outlet. They have one principle: maintaing power, just like Republican operatives such as Karl Rove.

Did you see the time Debbie Wasserman-Schultz mispronounced “misled” because she was reading her supposedly impromptu answer to a question off a TelePrompter on msnbc? And even after the questioner pronounced the word correctly. No kidding it’s a Democratic pr outlet. It’s as much a house organ as the NYT.

No, I didn’t see it. I can’t watch that channel, the bias just causes me angst. Life’s too short to pump garbage into my head – on purpose.

Down with Tyranny says she’s the most corrupt member of congress on the dem side. She’s in hock to the anti-Cuban Sugar Interests, the Fanjul brothers.

Two of the purveyors of DeLay-level corruption in the House leadership, Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn voted against Rangel’s amendment .. as another right-wing front group in cahoots with Wasserman Schultz, US-Cuba Democracy PAC, forked over $320,000 to Democrats in the current cycle.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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,
Denver and Detriot with their liberal Mayors and out of control City Councils – 2014 will se a major shift back to the right – though my quess is that it will be to far to the right and casue nothing but problems.

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.

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?

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… Read more »

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.

Out of touch that he took his inheritance from his father (GM Exec & MI Governor) and donated to charity – ALL OF IT – and started his own company?
That Mitt Romney?
Versus our current president who went to upper class boarding schools in HI, free passes to Harvard and the like, and really hasn’t done anything in his life. I forgot – he ran his campaign in 2008 and said that proved he knew how to run a company.
Yeah, gimme that guy. . . he’s really like me.

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… Read more »

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%?

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)… Read more »

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… Read more »
