MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry: “ObamaCare” Equals the N-Word
If being a left-winger of politically correct pigmentation without any other qualifications can get you elected POTUS, it should be all you need to make it as a host at MSNBC. But Melissa Harris-Perry proves otherwise by once again lurching headlong into self-parody. Here she tells us that the word “ObamaCare” is the equivalent of the unspeakable N-word. Via the Daily Caller:
“I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame and divide and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of wealthy white men who needed a way to put themselves above and apart from a black man, to render him inferior and unequal and diminish his accomplishments.
“President Obama has been labelled with this word by his opponents, and at first he rose above it, hoping that if he could just make a cause for what he’d achieved, his opponents would fail in making their label stick. But no matter how many successes that he had as president, he realized there were still many people for whom he’d never be anything more than that one disparaging word – a belief he knew was held not just by his political opponents, but also by a significant portion of the American electorate.
“And so he decided if you can’t beat them, you’ve got to join them. So he embraced the word and made it his own, sending his opposition a message they weren’t expecting: ‘If that’s what you want me to be, I’ll be that.’
“Y’all know the word that I’m talking about. Obamacare! That’s right! I said it and I’m not ashamed, and neither is President Obama!”
Any liberals who are actually able to sit through this moron’s show and pretend it is worth watching deserve credit for great devotion, even if it is to a profoundly foolish cause.
Since Ms. Harris-Perry finds it offensive that we call Obama’s ballyhooed signature achievement “ObamaCare” like all the libs used to do before it spectacularly crashed and burned, why don’t we rename it after the vastly more industrious individuals who imposed it on us while Obama was playing golf? We’ll just call it PelosiReidRobertsCare – PRRC for short, not to be confused with the PRC (People’s Republic of China), where the healthcare probably isn’t as bad as what we will have here if ObamaCare isn’t repealed.
