We’re no stranger to MSNBC and their antics against conservatives. They’ve really gone out of their way to ridicule and demean us every chance they get then usually end up taking a few steps back and apologizing. Well in this article we’re going to go ahead and spell out what some of those moments are.
Melissa Harris-Perry is one of their most outspoken anchors. The tampon-earring wearing liberal nut went after Mitt Romney and his family last December when she showed a picture of him with his 21 grand children, one of whom is black, and proceeded to make fun of them. A guest on the show even said “really sums up the diversity of the Republican Party.” That’s a great example of tolerance, wouldn’t you say? She later issued a tearful apology to Romney, who accepted.
Just this week someone from the network tweeted about a Cheerios commercial that had a biracial couple in it, saying that everyone else would like it but the right wing, who will “hate” it, implying that all conservatives are racists. At least in this case the network apologized and fired the person responsible.
If you know the network then you know who Martin Bashir is, and he’s another one who’s good for putting his foot in his mouth. He’s the host who last November said that someone should urinate or defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth so she knew what it was like to be treated like a slave. He would later resign from his position after nationwide outrage at his remarks.
In April of 2012 Chris Matthews, the anchor of “Hardball”, called the Republican party the “Grand Wizard Crowd” in reference to the Ku Klux Klan. He would later have to retract that statement due to public outcries.
Toure is another host who they could do without. In 2012 he said that Mitt Romney was engaged in the “niggerization” of Obama, after Romney made the statement that Obama’s campaign was run on “anger and hate.” Glad to see this guy has such a problem with the truth.
Probably the most notable incident from NBC was when they aired the doctored audio tape of the George Zimmerman 911 call to make it sound like he was making racist remarks to the dispatcher, which is really what helped to fuel the racial debate in that case. Zimmerman ended up suing NBC over the tape. They then fired 2 employees as a result and issued a public apology.
Ed Schulz also came under fire in 2011 when he doctored footage of a Rick Perry speech to make it sound like he made a racist remark. Perry had said the phrase “big black cloud” in his speech and Schulz’s crew in turn made it sound like he was speaking directly about Obama. In fact, I still see that video pop up occasionally on left wing sites.
Schulz again got in trouble when he called Laura Ingraham a “right wing slut” on his talk radio show. He would later apologize for the comment and say he used “vile and inappropriate language.”
These are only the ‘best of the worst’e things this ideological network has done over the years and I’m sure there’s much more to come. One thing is for certain, a lot can be explained about their viewers by watching what they’ve done.
