MSNBC Deletes Obnoxious Tweet Implying Conservatives are Racist, Leaves Up Story It Linked To

Posted by on Jan 30, 2014 at 7:54 am

After a massive online backlash Wednesday night for this belligerent tweet from MSNBC,  their executive editor Richard Wolffe weakly claimed that such toxic race-baiting isn’t who they are. Really?

Of course nobody with an ounce of common sense was buying that claptrap:

This stuff seems to happen daily at the All Race All the Time network:

Wolffe doesn’t mention who the person was who did it, naturally. Transparency!

Of course now that the offensive tweet has disappeared, the original story it linked to is still there on their website. They’re trying to stir up controversy where none exists:

The breakfast cereal’s new Super Bowl ad features the same fictional biracial family that sparked a backlash last year.

Titled “Gracie”–after six-year-old actress Grace Colbert, who stars as the daughter of an interracial couple–the ad presents another scene of family life.

Forget the Seahawks and the Broncos: there may be another outcry, but most viewers are likely to declare this ad the Super Bowl winner.

Weird, but we can recall any “controversy” from last year, but then again, we don’t live life obsessed with race. And it the story isn’t obnoxious enough, check out the oh-so-subtle tags accompanying this nonsense:

Equality, Media, Race and Society

Weird, but when my family eats Cheerios, none of the leftist obsessions come to mind.

Meanwhile, it’s worth noting this hugely offensive tweet still remains on their site 10 weeks after the fact, even after the loathsome cretin martin Bashir was fired:

    It is the nature of an obsessive to assume that everyone else is equally obessed with his little hobby-horse. The Left thinks everything is identity politics, and therefore thinks the rest of us must always see groups rather than individuals. It’s sick, but that’s the way the world is.

    I clicked through to the “previous controversy.” It turns out, their idea of right-wing backlash is that there were… racist comments on youtube.

    Because apparently, MSNBC had never ever seen a youtube comment thread before that. You can’t put up a funny cat video without racist comments.
