MSNBC Is Trash … Pure Trash – UPDATED

"Angry" is now not only a racist 'code word', but used by Mitt Romney it is a "niggerization" of Barack Obama...

Unbelievable.

Developing @ Breitbart: Romney Camp 'Discussing' Racial Slam with MSNBC Execs

The Mitt Romney campaign is privately addressing a racially-charged attack from MSNBC host Touré, sources say.

Speaking to Breitbart News, a Romney spokesperson stated, “We are discussing this matter with network executives at MSNBC.”

Touré asserted Thursday on the panel discussion show “The Cycle” that Romney was trying to “other” President Obama based on his race. Highlighting Romney’s use of the word “anger,” Touré claimed, “[T]his is ‘niggerization.’ You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”

NBC should be completely ashamed of what their cable network has become.

UPDATE:

I have heard this young lady's commentary videos on YouTube before. Kira Davis is very eloquent in response to MSNBC's Touré and his allegations of racism...

    Anyone remember Ed Schultz saying that some conservative's mention of a "black cloud" surrounding the Obama White House was a despicable use of coded racial language? Even Jon Stewart mocked him to no end for that one.

    I have observed something about the reception of such language over the years. When a figure such as Joe Biden or Robert "Sheets" Byrd uses unquestionably deplorable language in a talk before a large audience or on a national broadcast, he has invariably suffered a mere slip of the tongue that must not be unduly politicized.

    When any conservative, however, uses unquestionably benign language in a non-racial setting to make a point, and said language references, say, one single word that can be profitably used in an endless series of contexts both large and small but that in one particular context could kinda sorta be racial...then All Decent People must concur that we have witnessed an outbreak of obscurantist, deplorable fascism.

    If you want to know the liberal position on any subject, first use your brain to produce an analysis. Then re-write your conclusions to mean the precise polar opposite of everything you just figured out. See how easy that was?

    OMG! These liberals are getting so desperate that they're going to tip the election over on Romney's favor by turning-off enough potential voters by making such idiotic comments.

  • Honey

    Wow, why isn't Kira Davis running for office? This gal is spectacular.

  • Rayarena

    What an extremely eloquent young woman. I too am sick and tired of the so-called "left" going on and on about all of these "cue" words that are supposed to be racist. What they want to do is sling mud and force their opponents to cower into a corner of inertia. This is part of their playbook. They do it with Cubans all of the time. The instant that a Cuban American criticizes a pro-castroite, we're accused of being undemocratic and intolerant. What's more, there are no "cue" words with us. They insult us directly by calling us "batistianos," "right-wingers" "hate-filled," "those people," etc...

    In the debate on MSNBC, there was reference to some racist comment made by Joe Biden. What is it that he said?

  • mattmurphy

    Rayarena: Speaking to a largely although not predominantly black audience in Danville, Virginia, last Tuesday, Biden said that Romney is "gonna put y'all back in chains." No, seriously.

    Even some black Democrats are not all that pleased with Biden right now.

    As usual, the MSM Whitewashing Battalion is echoing Democratic claims that Biden's remarks were taken out of context (in the same fashion, Obama's petulant scotching of business-owners a while back was subjected to similar interpretive mummery by our press betters). I am, ahem, a tad skeptical of the MSM portrayal of the situation, but here is the remark in full in case you wish to judge for yourself.

    My considered verdict: Any Republican who said something like this would quite likely be out of a job already. And I mean already -- a mere three days after the event. If said Republican were the vice-president, a new candidate would have already been notified and groomed for a press conference.

    PS Don't get me started on the historical irony of a politician of Stephen Douglas's party making such remarks about a politician of Abraham Lincoln's party, at least before I've had my daily caffeine fix.

    These liberal talking heads, who suffer from delusions of both relevance and superiority, are competing for attention and status. They have to be ever more outrageously "correct" to trump each other and stand out. It's really a theater of the absurd, but the media is so thoroughly degenerate that it simply treats this as normal, reasonable behavior. Truly, deeply dreadful.

  • Honey

    Deeply dreadful, I like that.

    I keep trying to figure Biden out. I think his over the top ridiculousness may have a purpose. http://www.thedailyrash.com/vi...
    I don't know if that link will work. But if it doesn't, google Biden's remarks at camp and see if anything comes up.
    Perhaps Biden sees close up how dangerous Obama is and he is deliberately trying to undermine Obama's presidency.
    I keep seeing conservatives suggest Obama has to get rid of Biden. I wish they would cut that out. He is the gift that keeps on giving.

  • Honey

    Damn, they changed the link.

    Honey: After the Ryan pick, I sent a text to a friend reminding him to sit down and watch Ryan eviscerate Biden on national TV this Oct. 11. My friend, a burly ex-football player who can't go five seconds without making a joke, told me that unfortunately he only votes based on who makes for the greatest SNL skits, and on that count, Joe "Blunder Bomb" Biden is an unimpeachable choice!

  • Honey

    So ask him how come he didn't vote for Palin. You know he didn't.

  • mattmurphy

    Honey: I'll ask him. He was just joshing me. We don't usually talk politics, but from what I gather I'm guessing he didn't vote for President Zippy...

  • FreedomForCuba

    asombra,

    You perfectly described what's wrong with the MSM today.

    May I add the MSM is embarked on a mission to destroy the America founded by those visionaries back in 1776. In reality these liberals idiots don't understand the consequences of their current actions.

  • asombra

    The late Sen. Robert Byrd, a former KKK member, actually used the term "white nigger" on national TV at one point. If he'd been a Republican, he would never have been allowed to live that down. But being a Dem, it was "overlooked." When he died, those who eulogized him included America's "first black president," one Bill Clinton. Funny how that works.
