MSNBC must apologize to Romney
family for mocking black grandchild,
host´s Twitter apology not enough

Fox Opinion, by Scott Brown

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/31/2013 12:58:19 PM

MSNBC’s mocking of the adopted African-American baby in Governor Romney’s family was outrageous, offensive and over-the-line. An after-the-fact apology from host Melissa Harris-Perry two days later is not enough. MSNBC network executives need to personally apologize to Governor Romney and his family. Disciplinary action also must be taken against the offending parties, just as it would if the roles were reversed and a conservative had said something similar on a different network. Perhaps most alarming about this entire incident is the fact that the offending segment happened on Sunday afternoon and went unnoticed until a blogger flagged it Monday morning.

Credible public figures don´t discuss serious topics or issue serious opinions via Facebook or Twitter.

She apologized using extra emoticons, isn´t that enough?

I hate to say it, "But what if this happened on Fox or Limbaugh or Hannity, etc?"

If you look at the photo the little black boy and a white brother are the ones who are too small to sit by themselves. Consequently it makes perfect sense that Romney would hold those particular two on his lap. Three years from now those two boys will be sitting by himself somewhere on the side, not in the center.

May God continue to bless the Romneys. Their values are passed along to their children who love unconditionally without concern for race or other bigotry. This adorable little boy is now one of the grandsons in a loving family who will cherish and love him—seeing him on his grandpa´s knee warms my heart. For anyone who knows children, it´s easy to recognize a grandpa who knows what it´s all about. A family to be proud of and...we could have had them in the White House. Most of all this picture makes me cry for what could have been.

As for the mocking...it´s MSNBC. What else has to be said. TV not worth the price of a bullet to finish off.

Credible public figures often discuss serious topics and their positions on those topics via Facebook and even Twitter and various phone and computer apps. The Pope (twitter), Scott Hahn (FB), Father Robert Barron (Facebook and Youtube) are three Catholic public figures that came immediately to mind.

There are many credible politicians who also do so, whether Democrat or Republican.

As for this apology, it should be made via the forum in which the attack appeared, in addition to twitter (the fastest way, which was probably why it was done there).

Mocking Romney´s family for adopting a child, whatever the colour of his skin, to make a veiled racist accusation against the Republican party is outrageous.

The only ones not in high dudgeon over this seem to be the Romneys.
They are being classy and quiet and so far , not demanding an apology .
Sometimes it´s better to just ignore stupid comments rather than constantly demanding apologies and making every molehill into a mountain.
Don´t know why FOX and Sarah Palin have appointed themselves as Romney family spokesmen.

One disagreement - Perry (I don´t do hyphens), her panel and the management of MSDNC don´t know better. They have lived in the leftist bubble for so long and are so convinced of their own moral superiority that they think they are beyond fault.

Only the right must live up to the moral standards set by the left, not vice versa. Which is why it was fine for Occupy Wall Street to destroy, steal and rape.

One of Alinsky´s rules is to make the opposition obey its own playbook. The right has rarely done that to the left, but we are beginning to see it with the backlash against GLAAD. Keep the momentum going!

Go Getum Sarah has got on this one. Praises for Sarah, Governor Sarah Palin, and Governor Romney who have not gone invisible in these days when we need to see them and remember that some principles are still worth the effort to fight for. Falling in love with Sarah all over again. Can hardly wait to see her series on the sportsmans channel.

That MSNBC and the lib-progs the proglydites of pc, anti-diverse academia, urban effete-land land where it is all right to mock the looks of Bobby Jindal (you gotta be kidding me yelps Chris Matthews on camera as Jindal appears to give a rebuttal to some dem propaganda)--that is the diverse looks of Jindal mind you.

I thought we were supposed to be beyond that but the dinosaurs at MSNBC apparently don´t (and won´t) get it. PC and social-democrat BS is their religion. And we know what rock-headed religious zealots do when invited to repent an change??

The proglydites at MSNBC are going the way of the cavemen - outdated and not keeping up with the real common consensus of the conservative majority of whom the Tea Party is just a part though I hope they keep on marching with their tiny handheld flags and lawn chairs. They Palin and Cruz many the progs tremble IMO.

Addendum to #15:

This is so much worse that the A&E situation. Phil made a general remark in a magazine that had no connection the the A&E channel.

Perry´s remarks were on-air from MSNBC and directed at a specific person/family. Much more egregious!

She definitely needs sensitivity training.

Dean Obeidallah of the Daily Beast stepped into this one as well, in his inane attempt at humor. He is now waiting for affirmation of his right of freedom of expression.

Well, Dean, you have a right such a right. And your employer has a right to consider whether you add to, or subtract from, the business of the Daily Beast. But, that being said, I do have to disagree with Sarah Palin. You are not a yellow journalist, simply because your attempt at humor does not rise to what is considered journalism.

I didn´t have any idea who Melissa Perry is so I looked her up on line. She has a black father and a white mother, but according to her, she has always considered herself black, not bi-racial. I can´t imagine someone being so disrespectful to her own Mom. I understand why I NEVER, EVER watch msnbc. Their hosts are not worth hearing.

An apology on Twitter is unacceptable. Even with the meager audience that an MSNBC show attracts her apology probably was seen by less than one percent of those who saw the comments live on the show.

It´s like when Jimmy Fallon had some song play on his show as a put down to Michelle Bachman. Approximately 1.7 million viewers heard the insult but less than one hundred thousand read his Twitter apology.

No Apologies on Twitter - EVER!

She said it, she meant it. I don´t think she should apologize because it is highly likely she is not sorry. Most likely, she apologized because she doesn´t want her paycheck affected. MSNBC execs no doubt feel the same as she does. So, they should not apologize either.

Why are so many posters so sensitive all of a sudden? Who gives a rats patoot what Melissa Harris Perry, whoever that might be, says?

I´m sure that there are not many posters who have a lower opinion of Zerobama than I do and I have read and heard horrible things said about Zerobama and his family, including his kids. I happen to agree with and enjoy reading and hearing most of it but I can´t recall any outrage here on Lucianne over those things being said about Zero, his sasquatch, and his spawns.

I say to hell with all this damn apologizing every time someone gets picked on. If you don´t want a public thrashing, don´t put yourself in the public eye.

Civility is gone. Get used to it.

It ain´t bean bag. Lousy witless cheap shot to take a ridicule the Romneys´ white bread, well-scrubbed, clean cut image, as if it´s at odds somehow with the notion of adopting a black child. Too bad that black folks produce so many unwanted children that are either aborted, or abandoned by one or more parents. It´s too bad that so few blacks adopt children. But the Romneys get grief for welcoming a black child as a beloved member of their family? That´s low. Kids ought to be off limits. Michelle´s fair game because of her haughty disdain for America and patriotism, her ugly character, her hypocrisy about food, and so on. These cretins at MSNBC are so blinded by their hatred for Christianity (Duck Dynasty), Romney, conservatism, patriotism, etc. that they stretch credulity to reach for for any half-assed premise to express their hatred.

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted
