MSNBC panel: Hey, get a load of Mitt Romney’s black grandson

posted at 2:59 pm on December 30, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Caleb Howe, New Year’s cheer from American cable news’s beacon of progress. Here’s why even a terrific year-end MSNBC lowlight reel shouldn’t be attempted until after December 31st: There’s bound to be clipworthy stuff right up to the minute the ball drops. In fact, as bad as this is, arguably it isn’t even the most offensive Melissa Harris-Perry clip having to do with kids this year.

In a nutshell:

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.

In other “all conservative thoughts spring from prejudice” news, apparently making fun of a grown man for wearing pajamas that a three-year-old would wear is proof of anti-semitism.

I would like to point out that you missed a big one. 50% of black children are killed by abortion even before they have a chance to go to school. One of the biggest racial atrocities is this genocide.

Happy Nomad on December 30, 2013 at 6:00 PM

I was just updating my post from 5:25 PM, which only had the 4 stats I mentioned.

And actually, the abortion rate for Blacks is 37%, according to Operation Rescue; that’s only 3% higher than it is for Whites.

Yes.

Initially considered a liberal and positive act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, adoptions of black children by white parents plummeted after the National Association of Black Social Workers issued a strong position against transracial adoption in 1972.

The National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) is evidently still very opposed to transracial adoptions. The positions of NABSW and NASW do not reflect the views of Americans, white or black, as polls cited by Simon, Altstein and Melli show. In both 1971 and 1991, 71% of African Americans who were polled answered “no” to the question, “Should race be a factor in adoption?”

Lawsuits have been filed by white foster parents wishing to adopt their black foster child and denied by the state social services department.

AesopFan on December 30, 2013 at 6:46 PM

The MSNBC ‘panel’ banter here is so nauseatingly awful, it’s almost enough to wipe clean any fair points they may have ever had about obsessed unfair attacks this past year.
The shared chuckles over the ‘one of these things just doesn’t belong here’ joke…they should all be forced to re-watch that in the presence of this kid when he’s 18, so they can apologize to him personally.
I remain opposed to ‘outrage’ over stuff like this – but I do hope this one gets a little sunlight outside of just the right blogs.

a) The left/progressives kill 30% of all unborn black babies, year after year.

b) Kids born to single parent families are statistically far more apt to drop out of school or to become criminals. The left/progressives have been responsible for creating a culture where young women are paid very good money by the government to become pregnant without a man in their lives, thus creating children which fall into this statistic.

I really don’t think that word “engine” means what you think it means. Try “transmission stuck in reverse” — it’s far more appropriate.

verbaluce on December 30, 2013 at 4:53 PM

.
Here’s my “old” argument, from some while back:
.

In post World War II America, some Godly Christian people began to affect a change in American cultural standards and practices that they believe needed changing.
These Christian believers made no secret of the fact that they believed that they were following God, and that God was leading them.

Other Christians didn’t agree with the type of change that this first group of Christians wanted to bring to pass. They resisted and fought against their fellow Christian brethren over this “cultural change” that they did not wish to come to pass.
.
Some time after this first movement was started, another movement for change in American cultural standards and practices began to take shape.
The leaders of this movement were NOT Christian believers. In fact they made no secret of their contempt for Christianity, and all that it stood for.

Gradually, over time the leaders of the UN-Godly movement began to infiltrate the Godly movement. A little more time (and a few assassinations later), the UN-Godly leaders completely hi-jacked what had started out as a Godly movement, and claimed it as their own.

And that’s where we’ve been for the last forty some odd years. The UN-Godly hiding behind the former Godly, claiming that if you oppose them (the UN-Godly), then you must be in opposition to the former Godly movement as well. They (the UN-Godly) claim that the two different movements are in fact one, and cannot be separated.

Well, I reject, renounce, and DEFY the “premise”, that the Civil Rights Movement as defined by the Reverend and Doctor Martin Luther King Jr is in ANY way connected to the faithless, unbelieving, Socialized Government, anti-capitalist, anti-’recognition-of-God’ movement.

Please don’t insult our (superior) intelligence.

MLK would consider his dream a failure in 2013. Black unemployment rate, black single parenthood rate, black crime rate, black high school dropout rate, etc. all testify to the total failure of your “progressive engine”, which is designed to do nothing more than keep voters addicted to your Party and the free stuff it offers to those too lazy to work for themselves.

Remember, Lyndon Johnson (a Democrat the last time I checked, and he also was in bed with Halliburton before Dick Cheney was even born!) bragged that by passing his Great Society, he had ensured that the Democrats would have those votes for years to come.

King would be greatly distressed, as he should. Equality/power comes through economics. “He who has the gold makes the rules” holds just as true now as it did hundreds/thousands of years ago and will continue to do so until the end of time.

It seems that MSNBC is trying to corner the employment of uncouth, unenlightened, classless racists . . . but you already knew that.

If that had been a black family with a non-black child, they would have said nothing.
If that had been a transgender or gay family with a black child, they would have said nothing.
If that had been an hispanic family with a black child, they would have said nothing.

But since it was a white (Republican) family, they couldn’t wait to let their racist, stupid, uncouthness tumble out of their mouths.

That would be the same person whose famous photograph had Christmas lights in the background? The one accused of antisemitism in 2010, who basically answered with “The writers who write for me [some of his best friends?] are mostly Jewish!” The one whose “defender” calls him Jewish based on looks alone? Is there any evidence he is Jewish? Or are the accusations of antisemitism when making fun of a curly-haired white boy the real proof that antisemitic prejudice still exists, just on the left rather than the right?

So did you not read the article and links above or are you having a problem with reading comprehension? I understand you’re studying deviancy in the People’s Republic of Berkeley but for future reference here’s what anti-Semitism really looks like:

Hey, B.O. had white grandparents. Just sayin’

Apology is not accepted. In fact whenever they slam conservatives for bigotry like theirs, they demand they MUST go through ‘Sensitivity Training” to cleanse their souls of hate and bigotry. That is what I am demanding now and forever. Alinsky Rule #4: Make them live by their own rules. They demand sensitivity training, so should we of them. Its time to fight back hard.

Didn’t mean to be picking on you, it’s just one of those things that rings my chimes. You should hear me when the announcers on football games reveal their inability to make the kw sound and we end with cornerbacks and the the end of the corter. I fear the the kw phoneme should be designated as endangered and then everyone on MSNBC would be certain to pronounce it every sentence.

The continued progress of MLK’s ‘dream’ remains. And it’s engine is still the left/progressives.

verbaluce on December 30, 2013 at 4:53 PM

Woodrow Wilson and FDR are “model” progressives, but they sure had no trouble whatsoever with having Jim Crow Democrats as their allies.

Maybe you should ask yourself something: Take a look at those cities where the Black dropout rate is the highest, and where the most entrenched Black poverty exists, and where the highest Black-on-Black (as well as Black-on-Everybody Else) violence exists. What is common about those cities? Democrats and progressives have a monopoly (or near-monopoly) on political power. I would say that, based on the available empirical evidence, that progressives CLAIM to help minorities, but stab them in the back – to keep them “down” and voting Democrat.

or that a white family adopting a black child is wrong

Actually that’s exactly what my white friend who adopted a black child was told by the black women at a salon.

claudius on December 31, 2013 at 3:42 PM

No it was not a waste of time. Jim Crow was wrong. And the MSNBC “panelists” were wrong too. For the same reason. Bigotry is wrong, no matter what color it comes in.

SubmarineDoc on December 31, 2013 at 10:43 PM

Almost as bad as her ideology is MHP’s annoying lisp. Maybe MSNBC could hire someone who is cross-eyed to co-host with her.

Colony14 on January 1, 2014 at 8:35 PM

Unfortunately, we cannot accuse the libs of being color blind like the rest of humanity is. They spotted Mitt Romney’s adopted grandson right away and could not focus on anything else.

I really wonder what liberals see when they look at the color blind pattern for their drivers test? “69″,a Swastika, a cross, or “OZ”.

Now, what are they saying about New York’s new Mayor’s genetics?
