Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said it was “unbelievable” that MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel would mock Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandchild in the manner in which they did on Sunday. Harris-Perry apologized Tuesday morning, nearly five hours after Palin’s Facebook post and after a day of backlash.
“Holy [sic] unbelievable. The hypocritical leftist lamestream media should be shamed by every caring, child-loving American. It has once again reached a new low,” Palin wrote before linking to a Breitbart News article that had a video of the segment. “One just can’t win in their petty little games. Good thing most Americans don’t play those little games! It’s a beautiful thing the Romney family has done by embracing ‘the spirit of adoption.’ What on earth is more beautiful? Shame on MSNBC for mocking this.”
Palin, whose own children have been eviscerated by the mainstream press and even those supposedly on “her side,” wrote that the “LSM’s pursuit of ‘shock ratings’ is unreal.”
“Governor Mitt Romney ran for higher office with what I believe is a servant’s heart. He was saddled with some sup-par [sic] campaign tactics,” Palin wrote. “That does not make him a bad person nor does it open his children or grandchildren to attacks over a year after the fact. This latest attack from the Left is despicable.”
She concluded by writing that “leftist media hounds are not expressing an opinion with this attack; they are expressing a prejudice that would never be accepted if it came from anyone else but the lib media.”
“You really need a conscience, yellow journalists. May your 2014 New Year’s Resolution be to find one,” she wrote. “Thank you, Romney family, for giving a child a family full of love.”
