MSNBC Goes To Free Speech Jail For Pointing Out Racist People Are Racist (Updated)
Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Rightwingers are never racist. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s go look at the comments UNDER AN ARTICLE about threatening to boycott MSNBC for calling rightwingers racist!
See, what happened was that Cheerios released a sequel to its ad from last summer that, yes, actually did get a lot of angry reactions from racist wingnuts because it depicted a multiracial family. White Power Rangers grumped about the original so much that General Mills disabled comments on its YouTube page. So now, for the Super Bowl, there’s a sequel, with white mommy, black daddy, and almost anguish-inducingly cute daughter. Someone at MSNBC goofed, though, and tweeted — and quickly deleted — this terrible affront to every conservative in America:
The poutrage was nearly instantaneous, although MSNBC quickly apologized, calling the earlier tweet “offensive” and saying that “It does not reflect msnbc’s position and we apologize.” Not good enough. Someone needs to be fired, or maybe burned at the stake.
The apology came just before 11:00 Eastern Wednesday night; nonetheless, first thing Thursday morning, RNC chair Reince Priebus told MSNBC that no one in the RNC would appear on the network until the network really apologized right:
“Until you personally and publicly apologize for this behavior, I have banned all RNC staff from appearing on, associating with, or booking any RNC surrogates on MSNBC. I have asked Republican surrogates and officials to follow our lead,” Priebus told MSNBC President Phil Griffin in a letter sent today.
Priebus also sent a memo to Republican officials and surrogates urging them not to appear on the network until Griffin apologizes.
In fact, said Priebus, the RNC has just about had enough of the thousand insults of MSNBC. This was just the last straw, the most unspeakable hate speech possible toward conservatives:
“This is more than just a tweet or an offhand comment. This is part of a pattern of behavior that has gotten markedly worse, and until Phil Griffin personally apologizes and takes corrective action, we cannot be part of this network’s toxic programming,” Priebus said.
“MSNBC hosts—including Alec Baldwin, Martin Bashir, Melissa Harris-Perry, Alex Wagner, and Ronan Farrow just to name a few—have had a troubling streak in the last several weeks of making comments that belittle and demean Americans without furthering any thoughtful dialogue. Perhaps it’s time for the executives at MSNBC to consider whether their network is upholding a meaningful journalistic mission,” the Wisconsin Republican added.
As Dan Savage notes, Fox News has never apologized for its hosts and guests who call their fellow Americans treasonous or mentally ill fascists at least ten times a day, but that, after all, is merely an accurate description, not a slur upon an entire category of Americans. There simply is no racism on the right, as commenters on Breitbart’s first post about the ad were eager to prove:
a disgusting ad. They keep trying to ram this garbage down our throats.
Are whites really that upset about this commercial?
For decades we have been inundated with favorable portrayals of black men on TV and in the movies.
this is exactly what gots Trayvon kilt.
Who hates black men/white women marriages more than anyone?
That’s right, black women. They are consumed with hatred for it.
But they are never called racists. Only whites are.
Well, you can’t blame them… their women sorta look like men
for Easter they’ll unveil a BI/GAY family – a black daddy and a white daddy, one a pimp
Obamas’ daddy was a street thug otherwise he would be a better human being
It would be more realistic if the mom weighed 350 lbs but the part with the dad laying on the couch midday is spot on. I bet it’s a week day too.
But don’t worry, those comments, singled out by Little Green Footballs, just had to have been false flags written by liberals pretending to be conservatives. We found a few others, such as this gem from “Southern Nationalist,” which Brietbart commenters attacked as clearly from a “liberal”:
Very sick commercial featuring one of the many godless perversions Jews and race-traitorous anti-white liberals brought to every White country they infiltrated. Like homosexuality, drug use and pornography, miscegenation is such a despicable act that only inferior liberal deranged race-traitors do to bring destruction to our White race. The truth about interracial marriage is there is a whopping 75% divorce rate in interracial marriages and creating children with no racial identity brings nothing but problems. Another thing wrong about miscegenation is that parents will often DISOWN the child that engages in race-mixing. It’s time to stop this madness. We need to breed with our OWN kind. That’s the level that God set for us.
Or maybe this one is also secretly from a liberal:
It’s 2014 nobody cares if a family is bi-racial. I am just glad that they are a married family. That is conservative. It’s not a baby mama with two bi-racial babies livin’ on welfare and buying those Cheerios with food stamps.
See, the good married bi-racials are OK. It’s the baby mamas with two kids on welfare that make The Blacks look bad.
In any case, can’t you liberals stop your fascist mentally ill violence against America long enough to recognize that political discussion occasionally gets a little high-spirited? And stop libeling conservatives, because there is no racism on the right. Say, did we mention that Robert Byrd was in the KKK and Hitler was a liberal?
UPDATE: Here is a big surprise! MSNBC President Phil Griffin has apologized for hurting the fee-fees of the non-racists of the rightwing, according to a statement:
“The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable. We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized, and deleted it. We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet,” Griffin wrote in a statement.
“I personally apologize to Mr. Priebus and to everyone offended,” he continued. “At msnbc we believe in passionate, strong debate about the issues and we invite voices from all sides to participate. That will never change.”
So, yet another MSNBC monster fired for being terrible, although it’s clearly not enough — what do you want to bet there will be calls for Griffin to resign, too? So, anonymous tweet person, Bashir, and Alex Baldwin are gone, which only proves how irresponsible MSNBC for having ever hired them in the first place. Or maybe it’s a rope-a-dope, and they’re just waiting to demand that Fox fire Bill O’Reilly for his many sins. That must be it.
Over at the RNC, Communications Director Sean Spicer expressed satisfaction that the network had fired a rogue element, and acknowledged that sometimes people make mistakes… oh, like fun he did. In a memo to RNC staff, he basically said that although he got the apology he asked for, MSNBC remains monstrous and must be watched for further offenses:
“We appreciate Mr. Griffin’s admission that their comment was demeaning and disgusting, and the Chairman accepted his apology. We will aggressively monitor the network to see whether their pattern of unacceptable behavior actually changes,” Spicer wrote. “We don’t expect their liberal bias to change, but we will call them out when political commentary devolves into personal and belittling attacks.”
If only the traitors and race-baiters at MSNBC would play fair, like Fox. And, of course, in the comments on the Breitbart article on the apology, we learn that while MSNBC’s racism is unacceptable, there’s also plenty of reason to be concerned about all those black thugs out there:
According to the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, in the year 2008 black youths, who make up 16% of the youth population, accounted for 52% of juvenile violent crime arrests, including 58.5% of youth arrests for homicide and 67% for robbery. Black youths were overrepresented in all offense categories except DUI, liquor laws and drunkenness.
And the conversation continues.
