Melissa Harris-Perry Breaks Down On-Air While Apologizing For Kieran Romney Controversy

Melissa Harris-Perry Breaks Down On-Air While Addressing Kieran Romney Controversy

 

Published on Jan 4, 2014

A perfect storm of slow news and cultural provocation elevated Melissa Harris-Perry’s New Year’s weekend segment, which used Kieran Romney’s appearance in a Romney family photo as a setup for jokes about diversity, into a full-blown media conflagration. That firestorm has now roiled into a second weekend. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R-MA) is expected to address the controversy tomorrow on Fox News Sunday, and Melissa Harris Perry addressed it on air for the first time on the Saturday morning edition of the Melissa Harris Perry show.

Perry provided a tearful on-air apology Saturday for making light of Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson, and following the segment, sentiments both positive and negative poured in on Twitter, with Harris-Perry’s fans using the hashtag #StandWithMHP.

 

But even among Harris-Perry’s fans, some thought the apology was unnecessary, arguing that the left is always so apologetic whenever they say the slightest thing but the right never acts in the same way, so Harris-Perry apologizing today after already apologizing this week was overkill.

 

The apology was VERY necessary because no matter the politician or how much we may dislike the political figure, ALL minor children of political people, are OFF limits for discussion in negative context. Plain & Simple. OFF Limits.

 

From Mediaite:

Having a weekend show carries with it the blessing, or the curse, of adding air to the embers of controversies that a weekday show could quickly smother. Last Sunday, Harris-Perry moderated a panel that set upon a Romney family photo as the pivot point for jokes about Republican lack of diversity. Harris-Perry’s own remarks were relatively innocuous, but panelist Pia Glenn sang “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” upon the photo’s introduction, and comedian Dean Obeidallah joked “I think this picture is great. It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person.”

 

All involved issued a raft of online apologies of varying scope and sincerity, with Harris-Perry citing her own Mormon background in her apology, and expressing an intention to “celebrate” the photo. Commentators and reporters from rival cable news networks made Harris-Perry the subject of multiple broadcasts this week, but Saturday morning offered Harris-Perry the first chance to address the controversy on air.

 

Harris-Perry began by reiterating her previous apologies, almost verbatim, and added “adults who enter into public life implicitly consent to having less privacy, but their families, especially their children, should not be treated callously or thoughtlessly. My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits. For that, I am sorry.”

 

Her voice cracking, an emotional Harris-Perry continued “Allow me to apologize to other families formed through transracial adoption, because I am deeply sorry that we suggested that interracial families are in any way funny, or deserving of ridicule. On this program, we are dedicated to advocating for a wide diversity of families, it is one of our core principles. And I am reminded that when we do so, it must be with the utmost respect. We’re genuinely appreciative of everyone who offered serious criticisms of last Sunday’s program, and I am reminded that our fiercest critics can sometimes be our best teachers.”

 

Thank you Mediaite.

 

Ms. Harris Perry did the right thing. Some say she should not have apologized because Reich Wing Conservative GOP Tea Party RepubliCANT dumbasses never apologize for the things they say. That is a fact, they never do apologize. So what?

 

Are we supposed to lower ourselves to the snake belly level of Reich Wing Conservative GOP Tea Party RepubliCANT dumbasses?

 

No. We. Are. Not.

 

Kudos to you Ms. Melissa Harris Perry.

Willard “Mitt” Romney & Bain Capital Sued for RICO in Federal Court


 

By Jueseppi B.

Racketeering Romney Lawsuit Becomes Official November 6th, ironically the one year anniversary of Romney's loss in his run for President.

Racketeering Romney Lawsuit Becomes Official November 6th, 2013, ironically the one year anniversary of Romney’s loss in his run for President.

 

From The Daily KOS:

Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court: eToys Deal.

 

This will be interesting to follow. Stephen Haas, eToys executive charged with liquidating assets discovered multiple frauds committed by eToys attorney’s for creditors and debtors. Denotes multiple cases of perjury and other frauds. (CLICK ON ORANGE PARTS for more details)

 

Los Angeles – Steven (“Laser”) Haas owns Collateral Logistics, Inc., (“CLI”) locally. Haas sued Mitt Romney for $100 million today for Racketeering in the Central Federal District Court in Los Angeles at 3:47 pm. The case was assigned to the Honorable District Justice Stephen V. Wilson presiding; and Magistrate Justice Alicia G. Rosenberg to hear discovery motions.

 

This is the official Press Release:

Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court

Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital are Co-Defendants

Also named in the lawsuit as “Defendants” are Goldman Sachs (who took eToys public and is accused of fraud), Bain Capital (that bought Kay Bee Toys in 2000) and Michael Glazer (CEO of Stage Stores and Kay Bee who worked with Bain/ Kay Bee to buy eToys) and Barry Gold (who worked as director’s assistant at Stage Stores and then became a post-bankruptcy petition President/CEO of eToys in May 2001. Plus Paul Traub is named (who confessed in 2005 that he was secretly Barry Gold’s partner). Mr. Traub was also partners with fraudster Marc Dreier and named by the Federal Receiver over Tom Petters Ponzi as “controller” thereof.

 

Steven (“Laser”) Haas  is actually answering questions on the Democratic Underground
comment stream right now.  He is explaining the details.

 

And let us NOT forget the New York times reported Equity Firm collusion, naming Bain Capital.  There is proof that Bain, Goldman, and others rig the game.

 

Equity Firms Like Bain Collude According to NYTimes

 

RETAIL COMPETITION IS BEING MURDERED IN AMERICA.  These colluding behemoths will take this show on the road and murder retail competition throughout the world until they are stopped.

And BAIN Capital is listed in the impending court case.

 

In Bain’s biggest acquisition, the $32.1 billion purchase of the hospital giant HCA in 2006, competitors agreed privately to “stand down” and not bid on the company as part of an understanding with Bain to divvy up companies targeted for leveraged buyouts, according to internal e-mails.

 

A must read:  The case FOURTH AMENDED CLASS ACTION COMPLAINT FOR VIOLATIONS OF THE FEDERAL ANTITRUST LAWS – CIVIL ACTION NO.: 07-12388-EFH

 

Also from the NY Times:

Equity Firms Like Bain Are Depicted as Colluding

 

E-Mails Cited to Back Lawsuit’s Claim That Equity Firms Colluded on Big Deals

 

ARTICLES ABOUT BAIN CAPITAL

 

From Rolling Stones:

Greed and Debt: The True Story of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital

 

On Mitt Romney, Bain Capital and Private Equity

 

The Federal Bailout That Saved Mitt Romney

 

The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia

 

I offer the above because I think it is relevant to Mr. Haas’ case.

 

Back to Stephen Haas case.

 

You will find some more details here:

 

Meet the Man Who Has Been Battling Romney and Bain’s Bankruptcy Fraud for 12 Years

As an eToys executive, Haas had a legal and fiduciary responsibility to report his discoveries to eToys estate managers and lawyers, and instead of gratitude for doing his job well, he was asked to betray his client for the sake of his future in the liquidation business.

snip

As an officer of the court, and 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of felony, Mr. Haas, having knowledge of the commission of a felony had a duty, as soon as possible, to make known the same to some judge or other person in civil authority and if he failed to do so, he risked being fined or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. Haas fulfilled his legal duty and reported the malfeasance to the proper authorities.

Affidavit of Stephen (Laser) Haas Aug 3, 2012

That is when they offered me an $850,000 bribe and I told them no! This caused a panic in their ranks, because I reported the bribe to the Delaware Department of Justice. Who informed this laymanthat it was not really a bribe – until accepted. (
Nice Try)! 

In the meantime, they conspired to Obstruct and Destroy Evidence. http://petters-fraud.com/…

I wonder if the Mainstream Media will pick this up?  Will teflon Mitt and Bain Capital avoid prosecution?You can follow dkos member LASER HAAS here.

 

UPDATE:  NOVEMBER 6, 2013

Racketeering Romney Lawsuit Becomes Official November 6th, ironically the one year anniversay of Romney’s loss in his run for President.

 

It is now OFFICIAL

- the Racketeering Lawsuit of Laser Haas v Mitt Romney is going forward.

 

Thank you The Daily KOS

What Russell Simmons Thinks Of Don Lemon’s “5 Points For Black Improvement” Ideas.


By Jueseppi B.

Don Lemons (Left) & Russell Simmons (Right...in more ways than one)

Don Lemons (Left) & Russell Simmons (Right…in more ways than one)

 

A couple of weeks ago, I watched CNN correspondent Don Lemon stick his foot in his mouth, on his TV news show. I was not too shocked at Mr. Lemon’s remarks because like most  BOURGEOIS Negros, Mr. Lemon has forgotten he was not handed his success but he worked to gain his position…..with help from others. Or as Barack likes to say…..”You didn’t build that by yourself….YOU had help.”

 

It’s one thing to become successful and rise from the ashes of the ghetto as the great Phoenix rose. It’s yet another, greater thing, to rise from the ghetto and return to help other rise as you rose.

 

Mr. Don Lemon’s Video…..

My response to Mr. Lemon’s video after I viewed said video….

Is Don Lemon Qualified To Talk Of Surviving Racism?: Don Lemon’s Five Things To Think About.

 

 

donlemonrussell-simmons

 

Mr. Russell Simmons response, in full, in his open letter to Mr. Don Lemon…..

 

“I got a chance to see what you said over the weekend about black America. At first I thought it was Fox News, but then I remembered you’re a CNN dude. I have nothing against Fox News, as Roger Ailes is my man, but the gospel you were preaching sounded like O’Reilly and Hannity were pulling your strings. Thank goodness my political director, Michael Skolnik, was on the show to stand up for African-Americans, because conservatives love when we blame ourselves for the conditions that have destroyed the fabric of the black community. I respect your courage on many other issues, but I can’t accept that you would single out black teenagers as the cause of their own demise because they don’t speak the King’s English or wear belts around their waistbands.

 

Hip-hop language and clothing styles are expressions of frustration with the status quo. Young people sagging their pants today is no different than young people rockin’ afros, dashikis or platform shoes in the ’60s and ’70s. And many of those rebellious youth grew up to be quite successful… bell bottom-wearing, pot-smoking, Barry Obama became the President of these United States of America and a long-hair, anti-war activist named John Kerry became Secretary of State defending our country in more creative ways than just using violence. They were knee-deep in a rebellious culture, and did anything but integrate into a world that they saw is filled with problems that needed fixing, filled with challenges, or in their mind, with problems that they could fix. And now they are fixing them.

 

When this country closes 50 schools in black communities and continues to build more prisons, I know that young people see through the institutionalized bullshit that is laid out in front of them every single day of their lives. The lucky ones, like you and me, owe a real explanation of the problems in our community to the ones who are still living in struggle, not some old, conservative talking points left in the garbage from Mitt Romney’s campaign. I understand personal responsibility far too well, but you can’t ask them to pull up their pants and then stand idle as they fear getting shot in the heart by wannabe cops while walking home to watch basketball games.

 

America this weekend when you go back on CNN how we fix black America, tell them to re-start the “War on Poverty.” Tell them to end the failed “War on Drugs” that has cost this nation over one trillion dollars and unjustly incarcerated a generation of black men. Tell them to support the President’s plan for universal Pre-K, so no child enters elementary school having to play catch up with the other children who are fortunate enough to go to pre-school. Tell them make college affordable and obtainable for young students who come from low-income families. Tell them that the right to a healthy life should be universal and not just for the fortunate few. And lastly, tell them that young black men and women don’t just need “role models” or “mentors,” they need “sponsors” who are willing to offer them a job.

 

I want the black kids to grow up and be like you. I want them to know that their imagination is god inside of them and I want all kids, but especially black kids, to have the freedom to dream as well to create their own language. After all, without their jazz, blues, rock n’ roll and now their hip-hop, America wouldn’t even have a language of its own, much less a culture.”

 

 

Thank you Mr. Russell Simmons. The full Opt-Ed can be read at the Huffington Post:

 

Don’s a Lemon: Before You Go Back on CNN This Weekend, Read This!

Don Lemon is entitled to his opinion.

 

Russell Simmons is entitled to his opinion.

 

AmeriKKKa is entitled to the facts.

 

Black AmeriKKKa’s problems will not be solved by pulling their collective pants up and wearing a belt. Although I am sick and tired of seeing Black men’s underwear showing 25 inches above the waist of their pants.

 

As a side note to the baggy pants issue, a photo circulated around the internet showed Trayvon Martin laying dead on the grass after he was murdered by George Zimmerman. He was clearly showed in that photo wearing SKINNY JEANS and a hoodie. Baggy pants didn’t cause his death, Don Lemon.

 

Education, financial assistance and a fair and equitable opportunity for Black AmeriKKKans, to achieve the exact same life choices as caucasian AmeriKKKans, will solve the problem in the Black AmeriKKKan  community.

 

Fair & Equitable.

 

As for Mr. Don Lemon, I suggest he start returning to the Black community, lend a helping hand to some young & old Black AmeriKKKans. Help them rise from the ghetto.

 

Stand up for Black AmeriKKKa. Like he stood up for Gay AmeriKKKa when he announced he was Gay.

 

As A Gay Black Man In AmeriKKKa, Mr. Don Lemon Surely Must Recognize What Struggle Is All About.

Is Anyone Actually Surprised: Sen. Mitch McConnell’s Campaign Headquarters Recording


 

 

By Jueseppi B.

 

cellimage

 

 

I mean come on people….honestly, did we think that Lyin UnFitt Mitt Romney was/is the only TeaTardedRepubliCANT politician who talks out both ends…..mouth and rectum?

 

Did we believe these types of actions by our elected officials are isolated?

 

 

From Mother Jones:

 

On February 2, Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the US Senate, opened up his 2014 reelection campaign headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky, and in front of several dozen supporters vowed to “point out” the weaknesses of any opponent fielded by the Democrats. “They want to fight? We’re ready,” he declared.

 

McConnell was serious: Later that day, he was huddling with aides in a private meeting to discuss how to attack his possible Democratic foes, including actor/activist Ashley Judd, who was then contemplating challenging the minority leader. During this strategy session—a recording of which was obtained by Mother Jones—McConnell and his aides considered assaulting Judd for her past struggles with depression and for her religious views.

 

Last month, Judd announced she wouldn’t challenge McConnell, whose reelection campaign could become one of the most watched races of the 2014 cycle.

 

Now we know why Ashley Judd declined to run against Nastyass Mitch McConnell……

Thank you Mother Jones.

 

 

I mean after a year of a dirty nasty hate filled Presidential campaign ripe with lies, misinformation and spin cycled, falsified, fabricated, delusional bull feces from The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRAsshole-Gun Loving Nut Bag racist white supremacist caucasian party……..did we really expect future races & elections to be fairly & honestly run by “them”?

 

 

Wake The “Samuel L. Jackson” Up America.

 

 

Samuel L Jackson WAKE THE FUCK UP

 

 

 

 

We’re still sleeping on the tactics used by The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRAsshole-Gun Loving Nut Bag racist white supremacist caucasian party.

 

Time to wake the fuck up…..I mean The “Samuel L. Jackson” Up.
