The attack on the Romneys and their newly adopted family member, little Kieran James Romney, truly exemplifies the worst of Progressivism and the worst in the mainstream media! It is Progressive (reverse) racism, stupidity and anti-conservatism all rolled into one!

Each year the Romneys, like many families, take a family photo for their Christmas cards. Sometime the photo includes the whole family, kids and grandkids, sometimes just the Mitt and Ann Romney with the grandkids.
MSNBC’s (Reverse) Racist Progressive Anchor Melissa Harris-Perry Strikes Again
For me the yearly photo is inspirational, showing a beautiful loving family that should be a model and inspiration for anyone… everyone. But the leftist hate-mongers and race-baiters like Melissa Harris Perry, the MSNBC host that started the whole white Santa/white Jesus debate, in an attempt to stir the racism pot, and playing out in an attempt to make newest Fox primetime anchor Megyn Kelly look like a racist… because she said Santa and Jesus were white. And yes, this is the same MSNBC where anchor Martin Bashir made the disgusting remarks about Sarah Palin which ultimately led to his resignation.
Melissa Harris-Perry Panel Mocks Black Romney Grandchild As Token:
The MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry concluded the "What's So Funny About 2013?" segment of her Sunday show with a chorus of laughter at the black grandson pictured in former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's family Christmas photo. The chuckles were directed at baby Kieran - who was adopted by Romney's son Ben and his wife Andelynne in September.
"One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn't the same," panelist Pia Glenn offered as a caption for the photo, which the Romneys tweeted on Christmas Eve. (Lyrics of the original "Sesame Street" song are, "One of these things just doesn't belong.")
"And that little baby, front and center, would be the one," Glenn said.
It continued with:
The host then mused at the possibility of a marriage between Kieran Romney and North West — child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
“Can you imagine Mitt Romney and Kanye West as in-laws?” she asked.
“I think this picture is great,” comedian Dean Obeidallah chimed in. “It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person.”
Conservative bloggers alerted by the Right Scoop and decent people with a heart and common sense everywhere were appalled. As Dana Parino of Fox said on The Five, “Thank God for the Right Scoop, one of the few who watch MSNBC to alert the rest of us”. Jessie Waters, as part of a panel discussion on ‘The Five’, added that his uncle adopted a black baby, who is now grown, that everyone loves and always accepted as part of the family without thought or question and felt that this was actually an attack on baby Kieran as much as on Mitt Romney.
Ironically, the segment ends by teasing in the next block, an annual "'Look Back in Laughter' tradition of asking 'Hey - Was That Racist?'"
Obeidallah later apologized in a statement to CNN, saying: "Occasionally my jokes have been known to 'cross the line' and I can assure you that in the future some of my jokes will do that again. My joke on MHP was not intended in any way to mock the Romney family or the baby they adopted. Rather it was a joke about the lack of racial diversity that we see at the Republican National Convention. I apologize to the Romney family and especially the baby if any of them were offended by that joke."
Glenn apologized for the controversy on Twitter, writing, "In a spontaneous reaction to a photo, my disdain for Mitt Romney's political platform led me to inadvertently insult adoptive families ... I can say all day what I 'meant,' but my intentions do not negate the very real pain I have caused. I sincerely apologize.
These days Republicans and anyone to the right of the Progressive media are damned if they do and damned if they don’t…
And from all reports, Mitt and Ann Romney are generous, loving and spiritual people who are family oriented and love all their kids and grandkids without question and are also always the first to volunteer to help anyone in need. Sounds like a great family for Kieran or any child to be a part of!
It is time to look at which side of the aisle the racism is really coming from plus time to look at what lengths Progressives are willing to go to discredit and attack Conservatives, Republicans, people in the Faith Community and even their children… regardless of the truth; just like they did the toddlers of Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum, both special needs kids. Palin slammed MSNBC’s mockery of the Romney grandchild saying, 'Holy Unbelievable'…!!
Nobody said a word when Hollywood liberal Sandra Bullock adopted a black baby as a single mom following her hit movie The Blind Side [Blu-ray], which coincidentally follows the theme of that movie, or when liberals Angelina Jolie or Madonna adopted non-white children. And newly elected self-avowed Marxist Mayor of New York Bill de Blasio is looked at as a progressive thinker for having a black wife and mixed race children. Oh and then there is MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry herself a product of a mixed marriage. Was her life a joke or a mistake? I guess if you are a liberal you are a hero if you adopt a minority child or have an interracial marriage, but if you are a religious Republican family like the Romneys or Arizona Senator John McCain who also adopted a child of a different race after his wife Cindy brought daughter Bridget home after a cyclone relief trip to Bangladesh in 1991, you are trying to score political points or are somehow insincere in your intentions at best?
Perhaps this is also a good time to look at the real history of Racism in the Democrat party, remembering that Lincoln was the first Republican president and that most blacks were Republicans until ‘the powers that be at the time’ cut a deal for their vote with MLK and other civil rights leaders in exchange for the civil rights legislation passed under LBJ, but actually originally proposed by Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Time to look at the intolerance of Progressives in action; far different from their words. And perhaps its even time to ponder the affects of the left’s Holy Grail: Unfettered Abortion Rights that have killed millions black babies, a larger percentage much larger than of any other race or ethnic group in the U.S.; something that would make eugenicist founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, smile.
Because of the outrage, Melissa Harris-Perry finally was forced to apologize for this segment, as well, but there is a pattern here… perhaps it is time for Harris-Perry to follow Martin Bashir out the door, or is the true problem MSNBC needing a scrubbing of conscience, an injection of common sense, a lesson in journalism and a major overhaul? Progressives in D.C. and the media have been manipulating, indoctrinating and slanting the news as well as the opinions of average Americans for far too long!!
