    In todays world you can say any rude, hurtful or crappy thing to someone and then apologize and that should be enough...despite the fact that your rude, hateful, crappy statement will live on forever.

    All the insults simply show immaturity and low breeding.

    I weep for the world in which my grandchildren live.

    Even worse than insinuating a Republican Presidential Candidate is the father of a black love child in the South Carolina primaries. <wink/wink>

    I am not a fan of hers by any means, but she did what she could. She said she was sorry and made no excuses. All she can do.
  • #44
    It's a lib guest, full of snarky, smug idiots on that panel who all think alike. This, in a nutshell is liberalism/progressiveness
  • #50
    @Pr0-Lif3 Not quite. First MSNBC could have and should have fired her before she had a chance to quit and slither away. Second, given that they did not fire her, she should have quit and slithered away. What she said was not as bad as Bashir, but much worse than Baldwin. Baldwin spoke in a moment of anger.

    Typical cover your ass apology seems to be the trend of the day. There is no reason that a reasonable person would have ever made this statement were it not intended to be a shock statement. Nothing more than a smart ass remark that came back to bite her .

    That baby is a beautiful part of that family. I don't understand why people would make fun of a child just because he was adopted by a white family. When a child is surrounded by the love of a family that can care and provide for every need of his, that should be celebrated. That is the definition of family values. Bless that child and his family.
  • #18
    Your right of course, But these people that will make fun if this don't care. It's a race issue to them.
  • #97
    The beyond Iron thing is, she (Melissa harris-perry) was a black child adopted by a white family and not only that it was a white Mormon family... so she was in the same position that this baby is. and obviously she has done pretty well in life. so I don't know why she went there. as I said before she of all people should know better.

    MSNBC lawyers must have a stack of apologies already written and sitting on their desks. Note how all four tweets this morning wreak of legalese. MSNBC has become the bottom feeder of all networks. Who is their next host to step up to espouse their hatred and hypocrisy?
  • #11
    Racists are able to stay on TV at MSNBC, but they have an excuse now if Harris-Perry's ratings are bad. They'd probably replace her with someone worse.
  • #9
    She only apologized because other people called her out on it. Not because she was really sorry for what she said. I don't know who is worse. The morons from msnbc or the morons from fox. They both should just stick to the script and leave their personal opinion out of it.
  • #5
    This is why you should not have comedians on news programs. Hosts think they can make jokes too and stuff like this is the result. Not funny.
  • #61
    She's just the latest loser to jump on the progressive apology train, crossing the country from coast to coast with an insincere "I'm so, so sorry!" I think that's Beyonce in the seat right behind her.
  • #19
    What's the problem here? What the hell did she say that was wrong? I don't see no reason for an apology here.

    She should be like Dick Cheney, never apologize.
  • #62
    Should Republicans apologize for shutting down the government?

    Should Conservatives apologize for all those phony scandals including Benghazi?

    Should Regressives in the GOP apologize for all the ugly hateful things that members of their party have said over the last 5 years? Things like a woman's body is made to shut down rape? Or that rape is part of God's plan?
  • #66
    @Laradian I guess you only get your news from MSNBC because the people responsible for all but the first 2 of your list did apologize and were basically ostracized from the Republican Party.

    As for shutting down the government? It was only a very partial shutdown. The only 'hurt" anybody experienced was Obama punishing the American public.

    I think that in the long run, the partial government shutdown (which the Democrats were also responsible for) may be a good thing for the Republicans. It made a real statement to the Americans who don't follow politics that the Republicans are against Obamacare.

    As far as Benghazi - I guess you feel it WAS because of a Youtube video, so I won't have to comment any more on that!
  • #82
    If you are following ALL news, not just one channel...then you will realize that it was OUR PRESIDENT who really shut down the government. He was NOT willing to negotiate at all. Republican were trying to tell the President that Obamacare would not work and to stop spending. The President who claims to be working with both parties, said clearly he would not negotiate and then he went to close the sites that induced the most pain to people such as the veteran places. It was not the republicans, it was our President. He is just used to blaming somebody else.
    Benghazi, the report from the newspaper was already declared that it was not true. Once again, Clintons are "buying" the newspapers so Hillary could run for president. I doubt that people will forget "What difference that it make that those people are dead..." That shadow is there to stay with her.
    Nobody has said that rape is part of God's plan, you are just making up stories...those ugly thoughts exist only in your mind.-- Time to wake up and open your eyes.

    She's a bigger person than most conservatives. Her comments were really quite benign, but as she says it is not up to her to decide what right-wingers are sensitive to. Even though they are sensitive to just about anything a liberal says, and then get offended if a liberal says absolutely nothing. The old "damned if you do and damned if you don't."

    I thought her comments were harmless humor. Romney black grandchild marrying Kanye's Northwest. And the picture does show the diversity in GOP. It's usually with grandchildren and adopted. Don't wanna get too close to blood line. Senator Inhofe has black grandchild.
  • #29
    It's usually with adopted grandchildren...should they just go out and marry or impregnate someone of another race just so you can be happy? The fact is Harris-Perry was making fun of them and you know it. It's ok if a Lib does it. And it's especially ok if she happens to "call" herself black.
  • #38
    I really could not care less who they adopt of if they make them the old fashioned way. I saw the humor and appreciated it. Kanye's son Northwest and Romney's grandchild. That' s funny. It does not take away nor add to either family.
  • #39
    @WMCOL Take a look at a clip of this mockery on youtube, someone in the background is singing, "One of these things is not like the other one". That's not humour...that's an asshole making fun of the family and of an innocent baby. But you'd make excuses for it as long as it concerns a lib. And now lets see how long it takes to get my comment removed for the word asshole.
  • #42
    I was referring to the black MSNBC host comments. That was the story. Don't know about everything some a-hole somewhere will say...
  • #47
    Of course you see if this way. Had Obama's family adopted a white child- and someone on Fox said "One of these things just doesn't belong here"....OH your handwringing would have been endless.

    The correct comment would have been to show a 1)Loving Family, 2) Devoted to family 3) Responsibility. 4) An all around nice family.

    Instead, the intolerant left mocks a family willing to do something noble. Of course, your type thinks abortion is a sacrament more brave than adoption- so I understand the disconnect.

    I didn't think it was particularly offensive, her remark wasn't directed at the baby, or it's race.

    Besides, the image of Kanye West at Thanksgiving dinner at the Romney's has humorous aspects.

    As does the image of Romney at the Kanye West table.
  • #51
    Imagine if the family portrait had a black doll hanging from a tree in the back ground what they would say?Its sad they can not see they have accepted this child into their family for what it is.A child not a color.
  • #48
    There is a movie line I remember. "Have you no shame". That applies to almost all of MSNBC. MSNBC is so over the top obnoxious on virtually all of their shows that if I knew any of their advertisers I would not buy any of their products.
  • #75
    @Cincinnatus That was government in action. I am calling for people to act. There is a difference.

    Yes, the line was in a movie about the Army-McCarthy hearings. I do not know if it was ever said in Congress.
  • #80

    "On June 9, 1954, the 30th day of the Army–McCarthy hearings, McCarthy accused Fred Fisher, one of the junior attorneys at Welch's law firm, of associating while in law school with the National Lawyers Guild (NLG), a group which J. Edgar Hoover sought to have the U.S. Attorney General designate as a Communist front organization.
    Welch had privately discussed the matter with Fisher and the two agreed Fisher should withdraw from the hearings.
    Welch dismissed Fisher's association with the NLG as a youthful indiscretion and attacked McCarthy for naming the young man before a nationwide television audience without prior warning or previous agreement to do so:

    "Until this moment, Senator, I think I have never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Fred Fisher is a young man who went to the Harvard Law School and came into my firm and is starting what looks to be a brilliant career with us. Little did I dream you could be so reckless and so cruel as to do an injury to that lad. It is true he is still with Hale and Dorr. It is true that he will continue to be with Hale and Dorr. It is, I regret to say, equally true that I fear he shall always bear a scar needlessly inflicted by you. If it were in my power to forgive you for your reckless cruelty I would do so. I like to think I am a gentle man but your forgiveness will have to come from someone other than me."

    When McCarthy tried to renew his attack, Welch interrupted him:

    "Senator, may we not drop this? We know he belonged to the Lawyers Guild. Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"
  • #37
    It doesn't change the liberal left are absolutely disgusting in the way they comment about anyone who doesn't support there views. They have no morals and they believe in no God.
  • #24
    Instead of making a joke about the Romney's, maybe she should be investigating why this black child was up for adoption. It could be for any reason, but I can only assume since many black kids don't even know their father or their father has so many kids with different women. Make a joke about that Ms Perry.....

    Just like the movie The Blind Side staring Sandra Bullock. Actress Vivica Fox was on Oprah one time and said she's tired of movies and stories where a white family saves a black child.....Well, why don't you prove your point Vivica?
