A satirical video short that lacerates Mitt Romney and his advisors as they prepare for his speech to the NAACP convention in Houston on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. This is the first original production by The Message, a new progressive online media hub.
Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart's Big Journalism, writes:
Who is using the race card in this presidential campaign again? Is it Republicans? Is it Governor Romney? Nope. You got it, it's the left as we see from a former president of Media Matters and some of his Old Media pals who have created a video saying that Mitt Romney is too white to appeal to black voters.
The creators of the video are music publisher Cliff Chenfeld, former Media Matters president Eric Burns, former AOL chief Michael Wolfson, and a former New York Times journalist named Andrew Zipern.
Released before Romney speaks to a gathering of the NAACP, the video present a fictionalized meeting of Romney's advisers. The script throws in obligatory insults to Mormonism, claims that Republicans want to disenfranchise blacks and young voters, assumes Republicans are perpetrating racism against Obama, and, last but not least, insinuating birtherism despite the fact that Romney has never agreed with the birth certificate conspiracies.
These Leftists are despicable.
The accusations in this alleged "satire" are disgusting. This is really hateful stuff.
Sadly, this is the sort of garbage that fuels the Left.
This "fictionalized meeting" is reality to them.
Example: Lawrence O'Donnell Attacks 'Whiter Than White' Romney and His 'Profoundly Weirder' Family History.
Everyone knows the folks at MSNBC nearly faint in outrage whenever the words “Obama” and “Kenya” are used in the same sentence. Barack Hussein Obama Senior had four wives (one at a time), and fathered eight children from 1958 to 1982, but climbing that family tree is no doubt seen as racist by MSNBC.
But on Monday night’s Last Word on MSNBC, host Lawrence O’Donnell not only mocked Mitt Romney’s great-grandfather Miles Park Romney leaving America for Mexico to preserve his polygamy. He claimed their history is “profoundly weirder” than you would think – and didn’t really explain what he meant.
In the “Rewrite” segment, O’Donnell used a clip from the “grand inquisitors” at “Fox & Friends” where Romney joked about his family’s time in Mexico and “I wish I could claim that I’m Hispanic.” O’Donnell announced:Mitt Romney tried to Rewrite himself today in a much more important way. He tried to rewrite who he is. I don't mean rewrite himself from liberal to conservative. He’s already done that. This is something much more basic. Romney tried to rewrite his whiteness. He tried to rewrite his ethnicity. Now Romney is not just white. He's whiter than white. So the only direction he could go was something that required a little less sunscreen.
"Whiter than white"?
I'm sick of Romney being mocked because he's white, as if his race disqualifies him from being fit to be president.
I'm sick of this racial trash.
Romney isn't too white.
I thought Obama's election in 2008 ushered in a new era. We had entered post-racial America, right?
