MSDNC Hates on the Romney Family for Adopting a Black Child

Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

When pro-lifers like myself suggest adoption as the preferred alternative to abortion, it is common for pro-abortionists to sneer, “Yeah, as if conservatives are ever going to adopt an unwanted black baby.”

And then, they attack Mitt Romney’s family for adopting a black baby… because Racism.

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.

Do ya think Melissa Harris-Perry suspects the Romney’s were motivated by tokenism to adopt a black baby because that’s the precise reason MSNBC was motivated to hire her as an anchor? Iowahawk does.

Update: Melissa Harris-Perry issues the pro-forma liberal fauxpology. Next week, back in-line at the chanting circle.

  1. And the child wasn’t from Mali?

  2. The whole idea of “identity groups” is racist at its core.

  3. What can you expect from the same “usual suspects” who criticized or implied some sinister-aspect to John McCain’s adopted daughter.

  4. Many blacks are quite racist and are consumed with who is an Oreo. (Black on the outside, white on the inside.)

    When those types look at the Romney family picture, they see the ultimate Oreo in the making. He will be prepped up, taught all the white stuff and have his “authentic” black stripped from him.

    I was involved in a local bit of stupidity in which a black baby was taken from its abusive, crack-head mother by the court. A white foster mother raised the child from infancy to kindergarten age and appealed to the court for the permission to adopt the child. At that point, one vocal segment of the black “community” went ballistic. It was pure, unadulterated bigotry concerning inter-racial adoption.

    When the whites at MSNBC went off on the family portrait, they were being typically liberal and attacking due to a reaction stimulated by an incurable political rash that has rotted their brains. Only if the child were gay could they have been willing to tone themselves down a bit.

    As the Romney’s go through the prices of raising this lucky child, they will encounter more than a few liberals who will deign to praise them for their “selection.”

    The hypocrisy in this whole affair is tragic. Now, we have only to hear from David Letterman, Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart and Barba WaWa.

  5. First, why does she have Tampons hanging from her ears?

    Second, she definitely has a redneck hiding in the family woodpile. Using the octoroon measuring system, she is far closer to high yellow than she is to a full blown National Geographic.

    Third, the language of bigotry is often thought to be a private reserve among the “authenics” and I would not be surprised to learn that Melissa Harris-Perry is an official, self-anointed rules keeper and tribal parliamentarian.

    Fourth, I hear her grinding voices calling, “WE’RE SMART AND WE’RE RIGHT. WE’RE RIGHT BECAUSE WE’RE SMART. WE’RE SMART BECAUSE WE’RE RIGHT.” [See post below this one.]

  6. I was pleased to see a self-identified “Progressive” website that sometimes appears in my FB News Feed take MSNBC to task over this. There was simply no call for this at all. It’s beneath everyone involved, or should be.

    The News is dead. Long live the News.

  7. This one really hits me close to home — about a dozen years back my wife and I tried to adopt.

    We went online, to the state website listing children available for adoption. We found a sibling group– four non-white children — that we were interested in learning more about, but were told that first we would have to go through the mandatory state screening and training classes to get approved.

    We showed up that Saturday morning full of hope. We filled out the form that gave our names, ages, and address. We sat though the first three hours of the program and took copious notes regarding expectations for foster/adoptive parents. And at lunch time, we spoke to one of the social workers (all were African-American) — and were promptly informed that we should just leave because we had been “selected out” because “we don’t have the little white babies that people like you want.” We were not permitted to explain that we were not wanting to adopt an infant, much less “a little white baby”. We were not permitted to explain that we wanted to adopt a sibling group — something the state website included an appeal for potential adoptive parents to do. And we certainly were not permitted to explain that we were both teachers in majority minority schools who wanted to adopt non-white children.

  8. First, why does she have Tampons hanging from her ears?

    I assumed it was to draw attention to herself and help her to be recognized. I’ve never seen her before, never heard her name before, don’t know who she is, and don’t feel particularly inclined to click on the links to her remarks. It didn’t stop me from following the other links, however.

  9. I will additionally point out however, the earrings are very nice in that they draw one’s eyes away from her face, sparing a certain horror.

  10. The racism of the Party of Jim Crow, Progressives, and their supporters is so ingrained, they can’t even recognize it.

  11. The tampon earrings… I Am Not Making This Up… are in support of Texas feminists who wanted to throw bloody tampons at Texas legislators who were passing health and safety laws for abortion mills to prevent women from being victimized by Kermit Gosnell types.

    Gee, sounds a lot like a former Illinois senator whose name escapes me at the moment…

  13. 11.The tampon earrings… I Am Not Making This Up… are in support of Texas feminists…

    Holy merde. I honestly assumed that the earrings were some sort of lacquered silver cloisonné doohickeys that probably cost $500, and people were just laughing at the unfortunate but accidental resemblance to tampons when the studio lights caught the jewelry in just the right way.

    But, no — I just Googled, and like V the K says, he’s not making it up.

    Anyhew, though, I have a Twitter question. At the linked story, Ms. Tampax was getting additional heat specifically because her “apology” included a hash-tag: #MHPapology

    Could someone ‘splain for the Tweet-challenged exactly what the actual functionality of a hash-tag is, and why it apparently makes the faux-pology look even faux-er?

    ROFL! (I’m suddenly reminded of the opening scene to Twilight Zone: The Movie, when Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks riff on the acres of native breastage that Nat Geo was historically famed for.)

  15. Hashtags are a kind of sorting/cataloguing system within the twitverse. If you click on #DumbChicksWearingTamponsforEarrings you’ll get a list of all tweets with that hashtag.

  16. Those tampon earrings are…wait for it….WHITE! Obviously Melissa is a rayciss lynching whitey from her ears.

  17. Funny, I seem to recall the libtards going apoplectic in 1989 when then-President George H.W. Bush pointed out his son Jeb’s children as “those little brown ones over there.”

    Where is the outrage over what that hyphenated-name, tampon-wearing, high-yellow beyotch said about the Romney child?

    Hypocrisy, thy name is liberalism.

  18. I made the mistake of watching either this or a similar clip from this show yesterday. I was completely disgusted.

    What babies need most in a family is love. This baby will get that by the bucketful with this family so far as I can tell. I applaud whichever Romneys adopted this child, and the rest of the family for loving it just as much as the others (look at the body language).

  19. It seems clear to me now that liberals, at least those in the media, have no genuine interest in racial reconciliation and harmony. So long as it suits their purposes, it will always be the height of the Civil Rights Movement, and “racial integration” will mean shoving people where they will create the most tension. It’s time we called them on it.

    I have a better idea, Sean – we shove them back. Period.

  21. If this woman had a full brain, she wouldn’t be making these awful comments.

    Comment by davinci — January 1, 2014 @ 9:41 pm - January 1, 2014

  22. If the child had been adopted by a Democrat, he or she would be praised to high heaven. There was no negative comments about Angeline Jolie for adopting a black child fromAfrica. Let’s go back to the 2008 campaign. Senator and Mrs. McCain have a an adopted daughter form Bangledesh, and the MSM, claimed the Senator fathered an illegitamate black child, when it was Mrs. McCain who first saw the child and began the adoption process. Another oreo in the making. If outreach to the African American community fails to change to Republican, let’s adopt more to bring into the Party.

  23. If I were a betting man, I’d say a racist like Melissa Harris-Perry accused the Romneys of adopting a black child for the precise reason she suspects MSNBC adopted her.
