Melissa Harris-Perry is the latest target for “Dan Rathering.” Perhaps this is because of the recent “suspension” of Duck and Die Nasty, or perhaps just irrational exuberance over the firing of Martin Bashir … er, resignation. See how they run:
The usual suspects AMAZINGLY were ALL watching a very little seen Saturday Morning Show, looking to be offended, and so they were.
Here is the COMPLETE “J’Accuse!”
Melissa Harris-Perry Panel Mocks Black Romney Grandchild As Token

On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction:
The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.
But it’s even better than just hilarious, it also makes you think! Because, as the final comment from the panel tells us, this pic is a microcosm of the GOP. “It sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person.” Ah the never tired accusation, borrowed from every single left wing blog and talking head during every gathering of two or more (or fewer) Republicans: He’s not a child adopted by loving parents prepared to provide him with a better life in keeping with the family’s values. Nope. He’s just a token. A punchline, not a person. But it’s funny, because Republicans are racist, see? So it’s all fine!
Early in the show Harris-Perry indicates that her guests are all comedians. I guess if repetitive, lazy race-baiting is comedy, then this crew must be ready to go on tour. They can call themselves the Kings and Queens of Comedy.
I know: lame. But they HAVE. TO. GET. EVEN.
Now, the fake outrage and crocodile tears will flow. Freely.
Because, as all Righties know, Blacks are all racists. That’s the ONLY racism out there, and SHE. MUST. PAY.

I know it’s childish, but we’ve seen it over an over again, and yes, they MUST HAVE THEIR REVENGE! (Asinine though it is.)
And, Right-wing-owned-and-managed Comcast will tell MSNBC management that Harris-Perry has to go, because Black women CANNOT criticize Entitled White Men for ANY REASON, let alone race.
And Martin Bashir will have company in the unemployment line.
Is there anyone out there who doubts this piece of Kabuki theater? That it WASN’T coordinated and planned, and that someone isn’t pushing it as a tactical maneuver, but was, instead, a spontaneous outpouring of outrage over a Saturday Morning show on MSNBC, watched by seven people?
Excellent my Rightie bloggers! Excellent!
I will reiterate my little 2005 “fix” of a bad parody that someone went off the rails with.
When They Came for SpongeBob
First they came for Bert and Ernie and I said nothing
because I was not a Muppet.
Then they came for Tinky Winky and I said nothing,
because I was not a Teletubby.
Then they came for SpongeBob and I said nothing,
because I was not an asexual cartoon sea creature.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak up.

Happy Old Year.

UPDATE (almost immediately):
The scrofulous Daily Mail of England chimes in with fake journalism and fake outrage about a program they know virtually nothing about! [emphasis added]:

A Sunday episode of MSNBC’s political commentary show Melissa Harris-Perry has sparked outrage because of a segment that turned Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson into the butt of a political joke.
Host Harris-Perry stirred the pot by displaying a giant photo of Mitt Romney’s extended family Christmas photo to a panel of liberal pundits and comedians…

And how well do they know MSNBC? Try getting the DAY OF THE WEEK right, and then maybe I’d believe you were A) Journalists and B) NOT being paid off by American interests to write their hit pieces for them that they can’t get into US media. To wit:
That’s some kind of crackerjack news reporting you got there, Daily Mail (UK). Guess taking marching orders from American KKKonservatives beats covering Parliamentary elections in the suburbs, right?
Ask yourself this: HOW could some third-rate, obscure blogger (Caleb in “The Right Scoop”) be linked to for his phony outrage at something BARELY outrageable, then be LINKED TO by the “creme de la creme” (and I’m thinking Septic Tank Cream here) of the RightieSphere, AND considered “newsworthy” by a UK paper that doesn’t even know when the program in question (with a miniscule viewership) is ON, and probably where it even is?
It beggars the imagination to state that this was all an “accident,” where it is CLEARLY the result of (allegedly) “Intelligent” design.
Some conspiracies are as real as they are laughable, except that we live in a country that takes this crap seriously, and let’s watch Harris-Perry sacrificed on the Bonfire of the Hannities as retribution for Dumbass Duck Schmuck’s “inconveniencing” since he never served any suspension whatsoever.
