This is a feeble attempt by yours truly to try to do a post like CtH could do it.
If you haven’t been paying attention,this is MHP:


For their year-end show they had a bunch of unfunny leftist “comedians” on to mock…what else? Republicans. They showed a picture of Mitt Romney’s family with their newly-adopted black grandchild on Romney’s lap. All these ‘tolerant’ slugs saw was a shiny black face in a sea of white. They thought it was really funny joking about the little ‘token.’

Afterwards,a storm of outrage exploded all over the twitterverse about the crass insensitivity of this no-talent hack.
Fearing for her job,she offered this heartfelt “apology.”

At least she didn’t wear her trademark tampon earrings.

Right after her phony apology,Slate bitch Katrina Van Den Hateful sniffed:
“But I do think the right-wing populism of the tea party not only became so obsessed with an anti-government meme, but let’s be honest. There is a race … racism threaded through the right-wing populism, I mean which is not unusual to American right-wing populism, that has not allowed for coalitions that could be built on behalf of working people in this country against the most powerful interests.”

If I cry, will I be forgiven all of my transgressions?

Even Keith Olberpuke piled on:
Any adults in charge over there? RT @politico Melissa Harris-Perry apologizes to Romney family for using their black adopted grandson in a comedy segment http://politi.co/1hSfI8u


From HotAir.com:
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.

MHP has a white mother and her dad is bi-racial. Except for a few nightmares like Sheila Jackass-Lee,name another famous black woman who isn’t partially white. I’m not trying to be racist,I just want to know.
Joyless Reid looks black,but could she be Ol’ Harry’s love Chile?

Class act,ain’t she?

Howard Kurtz has a theory. He’s kind of enjoyable since he left CNN.

Howard Kurtz wonders if MSNBC is being deliberately crude. When your ratings have hit rock bottom, the easy way for a TV network to revive your fortunes is to have your hosts deliberately create controversy, which generates social media buzz, which drives viewers to your network.

Is it possible all of these controversies at MSNBC over the last few months have been the result of company policy which encourages MSNBC personalities to be rude and crude?


Mitt Romney was on Fox News Sunday yesterday. As expected,he handled it with class.


I know this post lacks the artistic style of others contributors,but I do the best I can with what I have.

According to MSNBC, your kids SHOULD belong to the State

For the past few years, MSNBC has produced ‘Lean Forward’ ads featuring network hosts pimping liberal agendas. Past ‘Lean Forward’ ads have included a push for action on global warming, promoting gay rights, and viciously attacking the Republican Party. Last month, MSNBC featured an ad by weekend host and college professor Melissa Harris-Perry that referenced the Communist Chinese economic program known as the “Great Leap Forward” … something that left an estimated 18-45 million Chinese dead. It’s posted @


Their latest ‘Lean Forward’ ad again features Harris-Perry again spewing Communist propaganda. In this case, it’s that

Children belong to the State

The message is yet another scary sign of the times and, for those of us who have been paying attention, nothing new. However, the push-back on-line has at least been fun … especially at Twitter.


  • First it was “You didn’t build that.” Now it’s “You didn’t birth that.” *Sigh* Govt, stay out of our cribs.
  • Telling a mom her kids belong to the collective is the stupidest thing MSNBC has done since hiring Keith Olbermann.
  • Did a village raise this particular idiot?
  • The Borg “Collective”: “Resistance is futile. Your life as it has been is over. From this time forward you will service us.”
  • I’ve got college tuition for my child due soon. Pay up, Melissa.
  • Dear MSNBC, If your kids are our kids, can we take them hunting after church in our big pickup truck?
  • The woman making $138,000+ annual to teach for 6 hours/week, 8 months/year, says we don’t spend enough on education.
  • Let me get this straight … a woman’s body is hers but my kids are not mine?
  • If kids belong to the collective, can we tell the ‘my body, my choice’ morons to pound sand?
  • Hey, Melissa. I have chores & no kids. Send some over. Yard work to do.
  • Unless you’re my wife, don’t call them “our” children.
  • So kids are property eh? And here I thought we’d abolished slavery.
  • My kids belong2me,my husband&God. That’s why their last name isn’t “Harris-Perry,” “Obama,” or “FedGov.”
  • Hey @mharrisperry, I taught “our” daughter how to shoot. I hope that doesn’t upset you. Much.

Margaret Thatcher and Mia Love got it right.

Other commentary on the MSNBC spot:

It Takes A Village Idiot To Say Kids Belong To State


Statists like Ms. Harris-Perry oppose school vouchers and school choice because that puts the decision of what children will be taught — and where — in the hands of parents. Kids are to be herded into re-education camps known as public schools where they cannot pray, pledge allegiance to God and country, but where they can get condoms and free contraceptives because the state knows better.

Critics slam MSNBC host’s claim that kids belong to community, not parents


“Excellent example of elitists who think they know how to raise your kids better than you.”

Rush Limbaugh


I want you to listen to how matter of fact it all is; how she just presumes everybody agrees with this. This is not something she even has to defend. This isn’t an argument that she has to win the debate about. This is a conclusion now that we’ve all come to, and everything in here is a conclusion.

Glenn Beck


It’s already being implemented with Common Core. It’s already been implemented here in Texas with CSCOPE. You don’t have a right to see as a parent what your children are learning. You go to a Texas school and say, “Let me see the curriculum.” You can’t. “Let me see that test that you are teaching through CSCOPE.” You can’t. You’re a parent. You don’t have a right to know.
