Another MSNBC anchor went off the racial rails over the weekend. This time it was Melissa Harris-Perry, who used her weekend show to make the vile and provably false claim that the word “ObamaCare ” — like the N-word — was “conceived by wealthy white men who needed to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal, and to diminish his accomplishments.”
I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history.
A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean,” she continued. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.
Legal Insurrection lays out the facts regarding the true origins of ObamaCare — facts that prove Harris-Perry nothing more than a racial demagogue. Regardless of the origin, after HillaryCare, RomneyCare, Reaganomics, and Clintonian, the word ObamaCare was as inevitable as a sunrise.
Sunday, MSNBC anchor Toure lashed out racially at Don Lemon (a black CNN anchor) as a “white Leader” for suggesting young black men might have a better chance of getting ahead in life if they were to pull up their pants.
Already this month, MSNBC has had to let go of Alec Baldwin and Martin Bashir over outrageously offensive language. Is it something in the water over there? Or has the collapse of Obama’s agenda pushed the MSNBC newsroom completely over the edge?
