Just when you thought progressive socialists couldn’t say anything dumber, they break the sound barrier of stupidity, again.
You might remember commercials for the United Negro College Fund with the famous tagline, “a mind is a terrible thing to waste” — unless of course you’re an anchor on MSNBC.
We just saw Martin Bashir read a prepared monologue for his resignation – isn’t it funny, he wasn’t actually fired for his disgusting comments.
Now we have Melissa Harris-Perry, apparently a college professor, say something so very stupid that I almost decided this wasn’t not worth mentioning, but my wife Angela told me this deserved comment.
Harris-Perry actually stated,
“I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man. To render him inferior and unequal and to diminish his accomplishments.
President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents. And at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word. A belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.
And so he decided, if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. And he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting — ‘if that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’ Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare.”
You’d think that at some time while reading this off the ‘prompter, her brain would prompt her and say, “Melissa, this REALLY sounds dumb.” So I guess “Romneycare” (which the Left coined to hammer ol’ Mitt) or even “Hillarycare” used for a white male and a white female were in no way controversial or derogatory?
But to compare Obamacare to the “n” word is actually offensive to all those black Americans who were castigated using that word — my parents included. This just goes to show again how desperate the liberal progressives are, and you can bet this was part of the marching orders issued by the Obama administration to MSNBC.
What liberals seemingly fail to comprehend is the incessant use of race baiting is failing. More and more and now actually inoculated against the word. The repeated use just angers people and progressives are now the “little children who cry wolf.”
Harris-Perry says of all Obama’s “victories” in office his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word, Obamacare. That’s like saying Napoleon is remembered for one single word: Waterloo. But then again, Harris-Perry is an admitted progressive which means she believes in revisionist history so probably has no clue who Napoleon Bonaparte is — no, not Napoleon Dynamite.
So my astute readers, I humbly submit that if you should find out where Ms. Harris-Perry teaches, make sure your kids do not attend, or never attend that institution. I am starting to believe friends shouldn’t let friends watch MSNBC, because a mind is indeed a terrible thing to waste.
