A group of white progressives affiliated with Media Matters are attempting to tell black America to dislike Mitt Romney. The group created a parody video mocking Romney’s NAACP address and claiming that black voters don’t like him.
In advance of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s speech Wednesday to the NAACP, a liberal group headed by a former New York Times reporter and ex-Media Matters executive have produced a video “satire” that claims blacks don’t like Romney, who they dub so white he makes “Wonder Bread look like pumpernickel.”
The YouTube from “The Message,” an online “media hub,” is described as a satirical video of Romney getting advice on what to say to the civil rights group. Or, as they said in a release, the video “lacerates Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to NAACP in Houston on Wednesday.”
Or can’t like him, rather.
Former Media Matters President Eric Burns joined with several other progressives to found The Message.
Does anyone else find it intriguing that a group of whitebread, one-percenter, progressive hipsters are trying to boss around a segment of the voting population? And if black Americans vote for Romney, will “The Message” turn into “The Hose?”
