UNBELIEVABLE … MSNBC Host Melissa Harris-Perry Compares Gitmo Terrorist Inmates to American Slaves, HUH?
Liberalism really is a mental disease …
MSLSD MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry actually compared the GITMO terrorist inmates to American slaves. Wow, just wow. What is wrong with this network? Not only does the race baiting continue for the Far Left, but the foolish and ignorant comment was a complete insult to anyone who was a slave in America and their memories. Can you imagine if some one on Fox News made such a comment? Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the NAACP would be calling for a boycott and their firing. So let’s under stand the mentality of the LEFT toward former slaves in America. The LEFT is comparing radical Islamist Jihadists whose sworn oath to Allah is to kill Americans and our way of life and “infidels” who has a different belief from them, who are being detained in GITMO, to black slaves who were bought and sold into slavery and brought to America against their will. Seriously? I’m sorry, I get the two confused all the time, NOT!
All blacks in America should be wringing the phones and hammering the emails of MSNBC in their collective outrage of comparing slaves to terrorist.
From The Weekly Standard:
“This is the time to reaffirm our Americanness,” said Harris-Perry. “I also appreciate that the hunger strikers are not trying to die. They’re trying to generate autonomy in the context of something that strips their humanity–something we certainly know about from the experience of American slavery. And that the language of before I would be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave and go home to my Lord and be free. Just that idea of creating human freedom within the context of horrible human conditions.”
2013 Martin Luther King Jr. Day
“In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not to seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom, by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” (MLK Jr.)
We all long for the “Dream”, but we must always remain vigilant of how we get there and who we chose to follow and listen to. Sadly, many have tried to highjack Martin Luther King Jr’s message to coop it for their own advantage. Don’t be sheep America, be true to yourself and think for yourself. No truer words have ever been stated than those by Martin Luther King Jr. during his ‘I Have a Dream Speech’ on August 28, 1963, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”. MLK’s message was meant for people of all colors, not one. It was also meant for individuals to interpret it for themselves, not to let those who would benefit from racial strife to tell you how to think and especially who to hate. Martin Luther King Jr’s indelible message in about equality and the measure of one’s character, not about one’s skin color.
MLK Jr’s ‘The I Have a Dream Speech’:
… I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream today.
This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with a new meaning, “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.”
And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!
Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!
Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California!
But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!
Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.
And when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, “Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
King’s message makes me wonder what MLK would think about of “His Dream” today? In the United States we have come so far as to be able to elect a President of color not once, but twice. We have had individuals of color in all three branches of government, as high ranking US generals, in the media and every position in the free market system. However, we still have racism in this country and even worse we have race baiting and those that would claim they care about the plight of the discriminated by making false claims of racism and playing the race card at every opportunity.
Think back to MLK Jr’s enlightening words, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” The color of one’s skin. Would it matter to MLK the color of one’s skin who was president when blacks had a 14% unemployment rate, nearly twice the rate of white men and women. Would MLK Jr. have cared the color of one’s skin of a president when black teens had a shocking 39.4% unemployment? Would MLK care of the color of ones skin of the leader of the US if Black millennials, those aged 18-29, fare better, but still face an 18.5% unemployment rate? I would dare say that the answer is no.
I would like to think that Martin Luther King Jr., had he been alive today, would speak out against any leader, including President Barack Hussein Obama, for his irresponsible and pathetic approach to help the black community unchain themselves from the bondage of slavery of dependence from the federal government, entitlement programs and the Nanny state. I would like to believe that King would have spoke out against the record millions that have been forced onto food stamps.
To be free at last, free at last means to not be dependent on one party or the federal government. I have to believe that was part of Marin Luther King Jr’s dream as well. All Americans of all colors should reflect on that today.
Even Liberal Boston Globe Demands Apology from Obama’s VP for Biden’s comment … “going to put y’all back in chains”
Houston Barack Obama – Joe Biden you got a problem … So this is what has become of ‘Hope & Change’.
When the far left, liberal pages of the Boston Globe demand an apology for Joe Biden’s ill-advised and race-based comments, “going to put y’all back in chains,” the Barack Obama reelection team has a huge problem. It would seem that Biden may have finally crossed the line of “Joe being Joe” gaffes. Normally Biden is given a free pass for his gaffes no matter if they were just ignorance like not knowing what state he was campaigning in or the correct century for that fact. But also making such racial profiling stereo-types comments about Indians and donut shops and the biggy that Barack Obama was the first mainstream African American (VIDEO)who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. However, Biden’s racially charged comment, they’re “going to put y’all back in chains,” meant to instill fear into blacks and a not so vale inference to slavery was reprehensible and over the line even for the libs at the Boston Globe.
What an embarrassment
When Vice President Joe Biden warned a Virginia rally of hundreds of African Americans that Republican efforts to loosen bank regulations meant “They’re going to put y’all back in chains,” Stephanie Cutter, Team Obama’s deputy campaign manager, said the president would have “no problem with those comments.”
But imagine if Republican Paul Ryan uttered comments like that. Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president would be pilloried for racial insensitivity — and so would Romney. In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender. But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize.
Barack Obama, Team Obama and his talking point minions defended Biden’s inexcusable comments as if it was just another incident of Joe being Joe and a Republican distraction. However, this matter is not going away even though Obama has put Biden in the witness protection program, out of site so that he cannot open his trap any more. As opined at the White House Dossier regarding the call by the liberal MSM, “this belies the Obama campaign line that it’s all a “distraction.” What Biden said was contemptible. It was one of his patented inane remarks leavened with extraordinary malice.”
Lunatic Fringe: VP Joe Biden Tells Supporters that Republicans Would “put y’all back in chains,” During a Campaign Speech in Danville, VA … A New Low for Obama/Biden
Just when you thought that Obama-Biden couldn’t get any more low rent … HEY AMERICA, HOW’S THAT HOPEY-CHANGEY THING WORKING OUT FOR YOU?
OBAMA-BIDEN has hit a new low and that is saying something for these two. At a campaign even in Danville, VA Vice President Joe Biden told supporters that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains.” Huh? And yes, the hideous comment was racial and meant to evoke putting blacks back in chains. This is what passes as a campaign? Could the Obama-Biden campaign get any more ugly? Politics is supposed to be a contact sport, but this is a new low in American politics. However, what else would one expect from a President and his Chicago style politics who cannot run on his record?
Vice President Joe Biden told supporters that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains,” during a campaign speech Tuesday in Danville, Va.
VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: They’ve said it. Every Republican’s voted for it. Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. Romney wants to let the—he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules–unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing…
Biden was introduced at the campaign event by Center for American Progress Action Fund president Tom Perriello, who called Biden “the conscience of our nation’s capital.”
The conscience of our nation’s capital? No wonder Washington, DC politicians have such a low approval rating. I think Perriello got the words conscience and brain dead confused.
The Romney campaign reacted to Biden’s vile and inappropriate words calling them “not acceptable”. However, in an interview with Andrea Mitchell, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter the campaign has “no problem with those comments.” How low rent and in the gutter is the Obama campaign going to go? Actually, they have called Romney a killer and not some one who is going to put Americans back in chains. Just curious, what happened to Obama’s message of civility?
“The comments made by the vice president of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election.”
What a contrast we are witness to with Obama’s stooge VP Biden and the GOP pick Rep. Paul Ryan. Biden acts like the village idiot and Ryan comes across as a sincere, honest, serious VP candidate with a plan to prevent America from going over the fiscal cliff. Voters need to answer a question, everyone speculated as to who Mitt Romney was going to pick as his VP candidate and whether that person would be ready to lead America being only a heart beat away from the Presidency. Maybe that same question needs to be posed regarding Joe Biden. Who thinks this loose cannon is capable of being President?
