MSNBC’s Touré: Romney Engaging In The ‘Niggerization’ Of Obama
Wow. Just wow. Serial race-baiter and MSNBC employee Toure has now jumped the shark. Today he accused Mitt Romney of engaging in ‘the niggerazation of Obama.’ That’s not a paraphrase, that’s not spin, that’s exactly what he said. From Mediaite:
On Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Cyclethe group discussed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney‘s assertion that President Obama should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Co-host Touré saw what he believes to be explicit racial connotations beneath what Romney was saying, calling it the “niggerization” of the campaign.
“That really bothered me,” he said. “You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man. This is part of the playbook against Obama, the ‘otherization,’ he’s not like us.”
“I know it’s a heavy thing, I don’t say it lightly, but this is ‘niggerization,’” Touré said to the apparent shock of his co-panelists. “You are not one of us, you are like the scary black man who we’ve been trained to fear.”
I would hope both Conservatives and Liberals alike would condemn Toure’s use of a word that truly does have a hurtful and racist history. Terms like that have no place in the public discourse and Toure should be dealt with accordingly both by MSNBC and in the arena of public opinion.
Of course, knowing how Leftists operate, I am sure they will make excuses for Toure just like they did for Vice-President Joe Biden and his ‘chains’ comment. Only they’re gonna have a problem trying that here. That problem? One of their own used a racial epithet on-air. Can’t wait to see them spin this one…
