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.
