Safe Mode: On
If a conservative stands up to Obama, our media compares her to a segregation era racist screaming at a poor little black kid

MSNBC analyst Melissa Harris-Perry appeared on "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell Thursday night to discuss the confrontation between AZ Governor Jan Brewer and President Barack Obama that occurred Wednesday afternoon.

Not surprisingly, Harris-Perry is sure that racial animus motivated the Governor's behavior.

  • Harris-Perry is a piece of shit. If Obama was white and had fucked with Arizona as much as Obama and that piece of shit Attoney General Eric Holder have, then I can tell you that Brewer's reaction would be the same. Race has no part in this incident. This is an administration that truly believes that the states are meaningless and that the Federal Gov't is the only true governing body. State rights and a certain amount of autonomy must be restored without fear of having to deal with those oppose More..

  • You know, I have seen pictures & videos of Prez Obama pointing his finger at and talking aggressively to other politicians before too.. One could say he has even looked like a political bully..

    She stood her ground and "gave it to him, or maybe even gave it right back to him since all our media shows us is this one still image"..

    Anyway, I say good for her for not letting the Prez bully her around.

  • Figures a liberal nignog would come up with a completely unrelated item to portray the conservative as a racist. Melissa Harris needs to be beaten severely.

  • What a load of sh.t. Poor little black boy ran for president and got it. Now, he and his raging sycophants can't stand the heat of criticism. Awwww boo hoo hoo.

    Man up and grow a set. Not everything is about race.

  • A picture tells a 1,000 words...and obviously a 1,000 interpretations as well.

    This race card nonsense is getting old. Let's move on.

    Thx for the leak, lwe513

  • Of course she would see it that way.

    She is not interested in the content of their character...

  • She thinks she's being clever drawing that parallel but what she is too ignorant to realize is that she is only hurting black people by playing the race card instead of intelligently addressing the circumstances around that confrontation.

  • So, we cant defend Obama acting like a fucking asshole and then getting shut down, so lets tell a story from the 50s that has nothing whatsoever to do with what we are talking about..

    I really like how Obama's defenders apparently didn't think that there was a copy of the letter, so they tried to justify his belligerent angry bitch attitude by saying the letter was rude and inflammatory. etc etc.... Then... oops! there was a copy, and its posted on the net, shit, now what Barry?

  • There was no screaming.... She simply has bigger balls than the president. I didn't think it was possible but he's an even worse leader than Bush.

  • I guess a picture is worth a thousand words, even if you are bat shit crazy. I mean don't these people realize every time they cry this bull they only make more people realize they are just sniveling clowns. Just look at sharpton and Jackson, they have done more to harm their cause than help it

  • The president was pretty much telling Brewer to fuck off with her book sales generating publicity stunt, but to compare it to Little Rock in 1959 is just plain stupid.

  • Racism, racism, racism. Blah, blah, blah. Every time the wacked out far left libs call racism, it gets to be less and less of a stigma. True racism comes from all colors and races sides toward all colors and races. And when it TRUELY occurs it should be condemned. But just claiming it constantly like this is just causing people to tune it out or really resent the accusers.
