    Re: The hate network MSNBC does it again, nastily mocking Mitt Romney's adopted black grandchild

    There are several MSNBC shows that I enjoy. One of them is MHP. I didn't see this particular original show so wanted to make sure I watched the video before I commented on the comments ( so to speak).

    I thought it was poor taste..more on the part of her guests..but she was the host and ultimately responsible for the comment of her show. If we are striving for a world that is blind to the color of one's skin then she failed.  This could have been a teachable moment and instead she laughed. Making jokes at the expense of an innocent child and the family that chose him was tacky.

    What was the news value of even discussing the picture and flashing it on the screen asking her panel to "caption this"?

    That being said..she has apologized to the Romney family so the issue should be put to rest.

    soxchamps = jackbu?



    Soxchamps is most definitely NOT Jackbu...lol. Soxchamps has been posting in the Red Sox forum for well over a year and was well known in the Sox forum for not being a big fan of Jackbu....especially in all matters regarding David Ortiz..lol. I am sure that many other Red Sox posters can attest to that..as well as one of the moderators of the Sox forum. ( who also posts there).

    As you know..there were many issues over the summer with people losing their accounts for whatever reason...thus the reason it appears that Soxchamps has been posting for only a few short months.

    Bingo! 

    I know jackbu isn't in suspension, like an above poster has mistakenly reported. 

     




    I don't think WDYWN was assuming..I think he was just questioning.  When I saw that I literally laughed out loud since I remember how you two would go round and round on ...well...just about everything but especially Ortiz..lol

    Re: The hate network MSNBC does it again, nastily mocking Mitt Romney's adopted black grandchild

    In response to DamainAllen's comment:

    I watched the segment, and the discussion came up during a year end rundown on a panel with some comedians.  The tone of the discussion was lighthearted and silly with MHP remarking at one point that the Romney grandchild may grow up to marry Kanye West;'s child and asking if people could imagine Romneys and Wests as in laws.  

    So here is my take on this

    The reality is MHP's panel stepped in it, not because they were offensive or insensitive towards the adopted child, they stepped in it because they gave the perpetually outraged right wing something resembling ammo to blast away at "liberals" for their own "racist" tendencies. All the right wing online rags are leading with this OUTRAGEOUS DISPLAY OF HYPOCRISY (Daily Caller, Townhall, Breitbart, FoxNation, and Drudge) and all are bending what actually was said into a nice neat little strawman that they can all point at from atop their very high horses. 

    Problem is for MHP, all she can really do is apologize for a situation that, at worst, displayed poor judgement on the part of the panel. Anyone who has watched knows the discussion was more of free flowing conversation with guests riffing on topics and often times those conversations tilt towards snark, including this one. The RW would have everyone beleive that a black adopted child was the target of scorn here, despite the fact that nothing close to that happened. And given MHP's own ancestry, including coming from a mormon family, my guess is she felt very comfortable poking a little fun at Romney but it is pretty clear that there was no real venom intended. 

     

    So shame on MHP for exhibiting poor judgement in this instance, but like most things angry wingers choose to go all frothy over this is much ado about nothing. The real tragedy is MHP gave them some redmeat to chew on.  Its her show, her name is on the marquee so this is her burden to bear.  



    Nice try but....

    If anyone on fox made fun of a black baby in a white family all progressives would go crazy. 

    Look how they acted about travon martin but we don't hear a thing on the left about the knock out game other wise know as hunting polar bears. Obama said travon martin could be his son.  What about whites who are being killed by this stupid game?

    Nice try but no cigar.

    I thought it was funny.  And I certainly didn't think she was mocking a black child.  but she was using the photo to mock the Republican Party.

    and the comment wasn't about the black child.  It was about how all the other children were 100% white.  No 1/2 Hispanics.  No 1/4 Asian.  Just 100% white.  It's as if the only way the Romney clan could invite a person of color into their family was if they started with a little baby - kind of like putting your toe in the water to check the temperature.



    Using a baby to mock a family is shameful. Using a baby to mock republicans is shameful.

    The romneys are white, so what, since when did that become a crime.  Oh no, white republicans, run for your lives!

    Your comment about using a baby to get used to having a person of color in their family is beyond shameful

    What if it were a black politicians family and they had one white baby there and someone at FX News made some snide remarks?

    You'd be there with every race p1mp in the land to complain about it.

     



    I'd still think it was funny.  And like I said, they weren't making fun of the baby.  They were making fun how white everyone else was.  



    Why on earth would they make fun of white people in a white family?  Would they make fun of black people in a black family?

    DWL,

    This whole MHP panel "thing" will blow over very quickly.

    Of course the right wing, if they cared about the family, rather than doing their best to inflate this, would jsut back off after MHP issued an apology for what happened on her panel.

    MHP, herself, a black woman, in an inter-racial marriage.

    How many people like that work on camera at say, oh, FOX? Uh...none.

    How many Megyn...with a y...Kelly types who do not have a clue work at FOX? Uh...too too many.

    How many black faces do we see at GOP conventions...esp.ompared to Democrat conventions?

    Does the right wing REALLY want to talk about the party with real diversity instead of this nonsense "issue"?



    So now you have to be bi-racial to be a good commentator?  You can't be a white women to host a show?  Wow, talk about reverse discrimination.

    Using a baby to make fun of a white family or republicans is shameful.  If it was done on fox to a black family, oh my goodness, the outrage would have been unreal!

    And, the reason MHP put up the photo of the Romney's????

    Fact is, MHP did so because she found something wrong with the picture.  I wonder what it was?

    I am reminded that someone once said something about judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

    How do you know it's a "fact"?  Could you quote the statements about the pic that were "judging" the baby by the color of it's skin?

    I am reminded that until recently the Mormon Church judged blacks very harshly.

    There is a wonderful black mom out there who chose to let her baby live and not have an abortion.

    A good person in the Romney family chose to give that baby a wonderful life.

    This is a terrific story.

    To use this nice story to put down white republicans is shameful.  In other words those who chose to use an innocent baby to put others down should be ashamed of themselves.

    And all the right wing outlets who have chosen to inflate this "story" beyond all reason for their own purposes should also be ashamed of themselves.

    Progresives are fair and understanding with their own kind, not with those who disagree with them.

    If the obama's adopted a white child and fox did what msnbc did the progressive press would have a field day.  Don't talk to me about being fair.

    This was not just one right-wing news outlet.

    This was a whole slew of them. And they did not just attack MHP for what happened on her show, they grew it into attacking her for all sorts of things.

    They never pointed out that she did not say a word about the grandchild. It was a couple of her guests who did. Nor did they point out she apoligized.

    But she did take responsibility and apoligize.

    I do not remember many apologies coming forth from any of these right-wing outlets when they have stepped in it in the past.

     

    I do remember them coming back and repeating what they said yet again.

    From your post, you are coming off as a right wing idealogue rather than someone who takes each issue one at a time.

    If you are, than own it. Not much point in debating a firmly entrenched right-wing idealogue here. Research shows they will just dig in their heels even deeper and go futher to the right than where they began.

    Only reason to comment is to point out when they put forth incorrect staements as facts.

    If it's racist, it's racist agains goofy rich white people.  Nobody is mocking the baby - just the mentality of the family of a Presidential candidate who got a total of 12 black votes to adopt a black baby and name him 'black' (in Gaelic).  It's funny.  It's a funny visual, a funny story, and yes, it makes Romney and his family look weird, but that's entertaining to us.  Look at Lady Gaga.  

    If the Obamas adopted a white baby and named him Whitey mcVoteSwinger Obama - somehow I don't think that would escape scrutiny from anybody.

    I wonder what Mark Fuhrman would say about the actions of the hate network.  Oh, I don't have to wonder - I can just turn on Fox News to find out.
