What were you expecting?
We refer here to that dustup last week over an official MSNBC pre-Super Bowl tweet about a Cheerios commercial that featured a bi-racial family.
The tweet read:
Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus picked up the phone and protested directly to MSNBC president Phil Griffin. Griffin apologized, the tweet was deleted and the employee fired.
Nothing to see here, folks, move on.
Not so fast.
Again, what were you expecting? What else could possibly make some MSNBC employee post such an incredibly racist slur? How about the reality — voluminously documented over two centuries — that the American Left is and always has been a racist sewer? Why else would an employee of this network that notoriously advertises its addiction to Jim Crow — judging by skin color — think he could write such garbage and get kudos from the boss?
Meet MSNBC. Better described as Jim Crow TV.
