MSNBC: Calling It Obamacare Is Raaaaacist

When it comes to saying something bat-guano insane, in particular pulling out the Race Card, there’s a whole range of nut-balls at MSNBC to choose from. Pretty much the entire liberal staff. In this case, it’s Melissa Harris-Perry on her Sunday show, who decided To Be Brave and say the word

(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!”

So, it’s raaaaacist to call it Obamacare. Even though Obama himself, along with many Dems Of Color, do the same. And media outlets. And that it seems that Jeanne Schulte Scott, a woman, apparently coined the term.

And it’s certainly not fair to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, two very rich white Democrats, and the numerous other Democrats who actually did the work to make this charnel house of a bill pass while Obama just gave speeches, that it’s referred to as Obamacare. But, hey, saying that word is raaaaacist. Unless you’re Melissa H-P, who isn’t ashamed to say it! Because she’s Very Brave or something.
