MSNBC forced to apologize for offensive racially charged tweet

It was just a few weeks ago that MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry came under fire for a segment on her show that poked fun at a picture featuring Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson Kieran. And the network has made headlines yet again – this time for a tweet that implied ‘right-wingers’ would not like the latest iteration of a Cheerios commercial featuring a biracial family.

“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” MSNBC Tweeted Wednesday night, linking to the new ad.

It took no time at all for biracial ‘right wing’ families to take to Twitter using #MyRightWingBiracialFamily to post pictures of their loving, beautiful families. MSNBC ultimately chose to remove the offensive tweet, and the network issued a response asserting that the original message did not reflect MSNBC’s position:

While Glenn was very vocal in defending Harris-Perry earlier this month, the displays of intolerance and racism over at MSNBC are growing too frequent to be passed off as an accident.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“I have accepted the apologies of MSNBC. We have defended people that we disagree with and said, ‘Look, they don’t mean it that way.’ [But] this is a very big deal because this shows a pattern at MSNBC, and, honestly, Melissa Harris Perry, your apology means a lot less because of this,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I’m sorry, MSNBC, but you are racist, and we know who you are now… They issued an apology and said, ‘We apologize for this tweet, and it doesn’t reflect the network or our values.’ Yes, it does.”

Stu was willing to defend the individual who tweeted the message because that person was really just sharing a message that is inline with the sentiments expressed across the network.

“I got to defend the guy a little bit… If you’re at MSNBC and you tweet [that] aren’t you in the pocket of what everybody is saying? Every day they’re entire line-up is just calling conservatives racist. How could they possibly not think that was appropriate,” Stu asked. “Al Sharpton has a show on your network that’s a million times worse than this tweet! They haven’t apologized for that yet… Think of what Chris Matthews does every day. The only prism he sees anything through is race.”

While the person who tweeted the message is really just an innocent bystander in this situation, Glenn believes the only way for MSNBC to prove it is truly sorry for this latest example of racism is to fire the person responsible.

“Let he tell you something, MSNBC: There is no excuse for it,” Glenn said. “If that is indeed who you aren’t, then you should fire that individual and make sure that everybody knows that you fired him – just like ABC did with the ‘chink in the armor’ [reporter]. ‘Chink in the armor’ is a phrase that everybody uses. And it was a wrong firing. But they so overreacted because of the Mouse.”

“But [MSNBC is] so unafraid of calling people racist… They meant this one,” he concluded. “They meant this. And they think they’re going to just get away with it, and they probably will. ‘Oh, we retracted that. We’re sorry.’ No, it’s who you are.”

  • Guest

    Sorry; nice try. At least MSNBC apologized. Beck? If he was “following to know his enemy,” then why did he not state so? You’re rationalizing Beck’s racism (yes, he is. He race-baits Obama, and non-racists don’t do that), just as others rationalize Beck’s many lies and Beck’s serial hypocrisy.

    Anyone who thinks that progressive bloggers “drink baby’s blood” is not anyone who is going to be honest or reasonable about Beck’s racism, dishonesty and serial hypocrisy.

    I saw the cheerios ad and it didn’t even register that there was anything “unusual” about it. Then I started hearing the furor liberals were stirring up about how we conservatives supposedly object to biracial families. I am from a biracial family, but we don’t call it a biracial family, we call it a family. I saw an ad with a biracial family in it and what I saw was a little kid and her parents. We are not racist, it’s them who are racist that they see colors instead of people. It’s them who are racist when they mock Mitt Romney’s family. It’s them who are prejudiced and close-minded when they attribute their own prejudice and close-mindedness to us.

  • Steve Harmon

    Yup, you got it Dennis, just as Obama-bin-Lyin’ says, “Global warming is a fact and the science was settled”. Ha ha ha ha. You are ignoring the “facts”.

  • Andrew Mcdonald

    Let’s see here. First of all, for something within science to be a fact, or “true science” it must be observable, measurable, testable and repeatable. Since evolution has never been witnessed, measured, tested and repeated, it is not constituted as a “true science” and is therefore a theory. Yes, variation of species and adaptation occurs, but true evolution, Changing from one species to another over a period of time, has never been proven. On the other hand, creation is also not a “true science” since it matches none of the criteria. Also, climate change does happen. But you people act as if it’s something new. The climate is in a constant cycle of warming, and cooling. It’s what keeps the earth at a state of Homeostasis. Liberals swore up and down that Global Warming was a fact, and then when it fell through, they changed to a position of Climate change because it happens. It has been going on ever since the beginning of time.

  • Pushfoot

    The older CHEERIOS commercial did have some negative comments, but I don’t know how or why that “backlash” has been tied to conservatives. Both commercials were well done, and the family portrayed in them is beautiful.
    My only disappointment was finding out that the actors in it weren’t actually a family, because I believed it them all the way.

  • Anonymous

    Evolution has more holes than the one supposedly in the ozone layer… while natural selection has a MUCH MORE SOLID GROUNDING. Global warming (at least the part supposedly caused by man) has been proven to be a fraud so now they have to call it “Climate change”. Yes, the climate changes constantly… if it did not we would surely all die in a short time. It was 39 degrees this morning but lo and behold… the climate changed, the clouds parted, the sun is out and the temperature is approaching 50 degrees… see, see, the climate changed! Silly liberals… should try taking some REAL university level, engineering, chemistry, and physics classes… from professors interested in science instead of politics.

    Did Glenn post anything offensive? Has he ever stated that he was in any way affiliated with this person? If not, you’re just assuming he agrees with everything that everyone he follows on Twitter might believe.

    Just so you realize how silly your argument is, I follow Jason Kidd and Kobe Bryant, does that mean that I think it’s okay to beat your wife and rape women (okay, maybe it was just good-old adultry)? Of course not.

    Either way, let’s not judge on things you have no idea about, k?

    Yours is a nice try too. Not buying it though. He doesn’t have to explain to anyone who he follows. Even if he had stated that was the reason, would any of you believe him?

  • Bruce A. Frank

    Some will say that this cold is just weather, and that the theory of global warming is still valid. Let’s put it this way, if we had a summer with equal numbers of days that were as out-of-the-”norm” hot as this winter is cold, you KNOW that Al Gore would be screaming that the planet was about to burst into flames unless we would buy more of his carbon credits.

    The chicanery of East Anglia University, the source of almost all the effort, to manipulate and miss-report the data and to smear the reputation of any who questioned their methods is WELL documented. A most notable point in the hoax in the THEORY is that NONE of the Global Warming/weather change computer models predicted, foresaw, or even HINTED at this 15 year period of no average temperature increase. And the real pig sticker is that during this period of cooling CO2 levels have increased.

    But real scientists know that it is well documented with live and fossilized tree rings and glacial ice studies that atmospheric increases of CO2 TRAIL behind, not lead, ocean warming, with an offset of 500 to 800 years. Oh, BTW, earth’s climate is warming as it has been gradually doing since the last ice age. And, in the 4+ billion year history of the world there have been thousands of ice ages and alternate warming to tropical temperature levels, while man didn’t come into existence until 200,000 years ago.

    Again, that’s called adaptation, not evolution. I’m not denying adaptation. The human body adapts to it’s environment via negative and positive feedback. The same way viruses and bacteria “adapt” to change in their environment. This change is genetic though, not structural. The bacteria does not turn into a different kind of bacteria in order to resist change. If it did, then evolution would be able to be claimed as the reason. In any case of bacteria and viral change it is always genetic adaptation.

    this is true, but in scientific terms theories are the underpinning of our understanding of the natural world. in general, theories are ideas that stand up to scrutiny. the basic theory of evolution, for instance, has withstood nearly 150 years of scientific scrutiny. There is much debate about how the mechanisms really work, but the basic theory is the foundation of biological sciences for the simple fact that it has such explanatory power. So while saying that “evolution is just a theory” is a rather pithy, what you’re really saying is “I don’t understand science even the slightest bit” which is why trying to undo a foundational principle of science is foolish.

    Dennis, congratulations on a world-class troll. Thanks for stirring the pot. The problem with anthropogenic climate change is that it ignores other things else that science has previously proven: that CO has been higher and lower before without the same temperature gradations; that the storm activity so often touted as “evidence” of this anthropogenic climate change is not unique to man’s presence on the planet – it has all happened before; that the methods of extrapolation of world climate were not fully discussed with or released to the public, making it all to easy to conclude that they have something to hide. Greenland, once rich with farmland, is now ice-covered, leading one to the conclusion that maybe the entire planet was warmer at some point in our history than it is today…yet somehow, we survived. There’s more, but I have limited space to respond.

    Ultimately, I fear, you and your fear-mongering, honest-scientific-method-fearing, educated “elites” will win the battle for the American heart, mind, and soul. In the name of your superior intellect, reasoning powers, and overall “humanity”, you and yours will do all the thinking for us, the lowly masses. The problem…the real tragedy…is, of course, that since you’ll control the means of education (much more than you do now), you will indoctrinate us into thanking you for it.

    brucesat, all you say is true, but even though a theory stands up to scrutiny, it is still subject to change of we have better information and/or analysis in the future. A theory is the best understanding we have today with the evidence that is available, but it’s not 100% perfect, there may be parts of theories that have issues. Google ‘big bang alternatives’ – there are dozens of very scientifically based ideas on other ways that the universe may have begun.

    Science should always be skeptical, always asking questions, never be conceited enough to think we know it all.

    It has survived 150 years of them circling the wagons and not letting anyone be heard that doesn’t agree with them. (See Ben Stein’s movie “Expelled”.) Very foundational questions cannot be answered by evolution. Examples of this are how could proteins etc. be shifted around to the optimal places we find them today when the reproductive systems hadn’t “evolved” yet. There would be no mechanism to select any beneficial feature without this complex system (reproduction). Another example is the circulation system– evolution creating small changes over thousands of years could not have done this because the creature would have bled out or died from lack of oxygen without all the parts in place. The evolutionist answer is that it was built from pieces of old systems, however, the problem still exists with any little change of the circulation system, it all needs to be in place or sudden death. There’s also the small problem of no transitional species when thousands should exist. No, it’s a theory and a poor unprovable one at that.

    My faith teaches that I am to accept the apologies of those who apologize to me – both for their sake as well as my own. What I have learned and studied leads me to understand that Christ never put any limitations on the number of false apologies to endure before giving up on the person. Christ is (duh) superior to me in His ability to forgive. I *want* to believe MSNBC really means it this time…but somehow, I can’t get there. I don’t watch them often enough to be a shadow of a blip on a Nielsen rating, so the promise that I’d quit watching them doesn’t really hurt them. All I can do is hope that enough of their regular viewers will eventually see them the same way I do…and that THEY will quit watching.

    Evolution is just a theory; which frankly takes a lot of “faith” to believe in it, especially considering that the law of entropy states that matter tends to move toward a state of disorder. Show me one piece of evidence that macroevolution has occurred–that one species has jumped to another species. Out of the billions of fossils ever found, there has never been one to show such a thing.

    Besides, in Calif. there is a state wide drought. All of these changes in the weather is due to God’s anger on D.C., Calif and other states that are very wicked. Such as Abortion’s, same sex marriage, and all of the evil that obammy has caused this Great Nation. People get up and fight and don’t let obammy and his evil minnons take over the USA.

  • mspatdev

    That is so very true. Al Gore has gotten millions and millions of dollars from obammy and the UN for his many, many lies. The world is in a terrible changing of the climate and mr. gore has run from one country to the next and getting lots and lots of money. He is a fraud, dishonest, liar and everything else.

  • Guest

    They are also closet racists who suffer from “white guilt”, so they fall all over themselves trying to show how accepting (non-racist) they are, while in the mean time projecting their deep seated racism on those they wish to denigrate. They will hear someone make a comment that wasn’t racial and , wasn’t meant to be racial, but they will assume it is, because that is the way that THEY think. They are in denial about the way they really feel.

  • Bill Tilghman

    MSNBC is just so tone deaf that they can’t help themselves anymore – it is one of the dangers of making absolutist blanket statements of a negative accusatory nature. The culture at MSNBC is so warped and they have been demonizing conservatives so long and at such a volume that they no longer can stop themselves from shooting their mouths off.

    Not only is this network offensive to the extreme, and their on-air talent is so out of touch with reality that they fail to recognize the boundaries most adults instinctively know and work not to cross.

    We are witnessing the end of this network. It is coming unraveled at the seams in a most ugly and public manner. They are trying to stem the flow of blood, but when you hemorrhage this profusely it is only a matter of time before even their viewers desert them in droves.

    So the network fired the anonymous employee responsible for this outrage, and the man at the top is apologizing in a half hearted attempt to salvage his network’s viability. This network has shown absolutely the worst response to this kind of ugliness in the past multiple incidents and now they fire someone? The horse has left the barn, so let’s nail the door shut – this makes no sense and will not save MSNBC from it’s well deserved doom.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Apparently, Dennis, you don’t have a clue about the difference between fact and theory.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Actually, the theory of climate change – renamed from global warming when that failed to hold up to scientific scrutiny – has been shown to be erroneous. The climate is always in flux and has been since earth could support life both on the land and in the seas. The place where this theory falls down is that the long term trends don’t match the claims of those who are using it to formulate political policy. Since the insignificant amount of temperature change (1.7 degrees over several decades) has been made known by the research and empirical data gathered by same, it has become apparent that this theory is far from truth as it has been presented by the advocates of promoting it as a man caused problem.

    If you take the observations into the geologic time scale, it is actually quite evident that temperature shifts that have been most harmful have been in the form of repeated ice ages, the next one of which has been predicted for decades. Not only is there no linkage between the composition and proportions of the atmospheric gases as proven by polar ice cores taken over a century of scientific research, but the evidence is clearly not in favor of the global warming argument and this has been known for decades.

    Climate change is always a fact, but it is misuse of the term to characterize it as a substitute for the failed theory of global warming.

    To be blunt, that was a hoax in the beginning and it remains one to this day as well as into the foreseeable future.

  • Bill Tilghman

    Dustin, you and Dennis are absolutely incorrect. The worst part of that is you are convinced of your flawed assumptions and opinions and your misstatements of what theory consists of or is defined by is indicative of you both not knowing your rears from a depression in the earth.

    The theory you are supporting has failed all the tests of science and it is public knowledge that global warming was a hoax put on by environmentalists who are engaged and invested in attributing emotional belief above and beyond what the scientific community has revealed in more than a century of records and experimentation.

    In essence, you are both absolutely incorrect.

  • Bill Tilghman

    That went right over his head – you can still see his hair waving in the breeze.

  • Bill Tilghman

    It is also very convenient that the network chief claims they fired the person responsible for the comment – how do we verify that? It is an easy claim to make and one that can’t be proven without challenging that claim in court.

    I think the liberals are lying again… what a shock.

    Actually, it definitely and obviously reflects the position of MSNBC.

    Fox has far more BS than MSNBC ever will. The person who tweeted this was fired, but Beck made far more racist and inflamatory claims on Fox. Ailes didn’t fire Beck though because Ailes is more extreme than Beck. Fox “news” and BS go hand in hand. There are many, many examples of this.

    Beck was caught on Twitter as friend and follower of a white supremacist group. When pointed out, he quickly pulled it down without explanation or apology. No one was fired; it was Beck’s doing.

    Now Beck wants to make hay about someone at MSNBC, who got fired, who was predicting the right-wing outrage about a bi-racial couple. Let’s forget the obvious hypocrisy for a moment.

    Beck has spent five years race-baiting Obama. Beck pretends he’s against racism, but anti-racists do NOT race-bait. Racists race-bait. That’s right, Glenn Beck is a racist, subtle but without a doubt (unless you love Beck which means you will not ever agree with any of his critics). Far more destructive for America than Beck’s subtle racism and his hypocrisy are his lies. Beck pulls more “facts” from his rectum than anyone else on radio, and with A. Jones out there; that’s saying a lot.

    Glenn Beck: liar, hypocrite and racist. What’s not to love?

    Yes, evolution has stood up to scrutiny. Man made climate change, however, has definitely not. The predictions made by climate scientists have been the most hard hit. Even so, you have people changing the predictions and even the theory itself on a whim to justify the fact that the theory hasn’t held up to that scrutiny. The theory has become so politicized that it’s almost impossible to find unbiased information about it.

  • russellmuscle1

    Exactly. I know I saw a poll the other day that said “most Americans believe in Climate Change”. Yes, most Americans at the very least believe that climate changes. Sometimes, even the numbers lie, especially when the study is slanted toward a particular result.

  • russellmuscle1

    Uhhhh…….I think everyone is grasping the conversation except for you. Look, you have no right to be making any claims or insulting people if you aren’t even able to engage in the conversation intelligently. Sorry, I know that’s harsh but that seems to be an illness people in this country are suffering. Even when they don’t know what they are talking about, they’ll push an argument endlessly till they are basically off topic or talking nonsense.

    Evolution is how the wolf became the dog, and how the lion became the cat. It’s also how all four are descended from the same little otter sized critter from a million or so years ago. Pre-evolution is one of the only ways you can explain how Noah/Gilgamesh (the original story) got all those creatures aboard the Arc. Evolution also explains how something the size of your average cocker spaniel grew to be something that gets raced in the Kentucky Derby every first Saturday in May.

    So you’re saying God and His works must to fit into your ideas. God couldn’t possibly have made one creature out of another? (Why did God make them male and female on day five, and then make a female to be a companion to the male on day nine?) If animals couldn’t be morphed/evolved then why are our crocodiles and alligators only 6′ to 15′ long, not the 30′ to 50′ they used to be? And why do people come in every shade of yellow/brown one could think of? (Along with their hair and eyes.)

  • Anonymous

    There has been not one single solitary aspect of evolution that has ever been proven. I was fine with school not teaching about Creation or Intelligent Design. I learned all I needed to know about those things outside of school. However, the public school system continues to give it more credibility with each passing year. No theory has ever proven where everything actually began. Without that spark of energy, nothing exists. Evolution is the opposite of truth. It’s not foundational at all! Why do you need to be a scientist to know that a lie is not the truth?

    What I don’t understand is how CO2 levels from industrialization have anything to do with the Earth’s climate. Since the beginning of time humans have exhaled it, and plants NEED it in order to survive, in what way is man made global warming a plausible theory? Oh yeah, it’s crap, every single solitary “climate change” model is a smoke screen for a carbon tax and redistribution of wealth.

    Whenever you come across a bleeding heart liberal talking about race until they are blue in the face, ask them a few questions. When is the last time you had dinner with a black person? When is the last time you let a black family spend the night in your home? If you did these things was it because the black people were your friends or because you just wanted the world to know you like black people? Are you capable of talking to a black person without bringing up politics or race?

  • Sheri

    They are mentioned in the bible. The term “dinosaur” was first used in 1846.
    Creatures called Leviathan and Behemoth are mentioned. The bible must be referring to dinosaurs because it describes the animal as having…”a tail like a cedar(tree).” There is nothing this could be except dinosaurs. Besides we DO have fossil evidence to prove creatures lived on earth that did posess a “tail like a cedar.” Dinosaurs. Don’t get stuck on language. The bible isn’t a MythBusters Book For Skeptics. It is a human history book and a guide book (at its core) and is God’s word to us, for us, to help us live lives pleasing to him and how to be in a relationship w/him.

    The carbon that’s in the ground came out of the air! Look up photosynthesis in an encyclopedia and quit worrying because your handlers tell you to.

  • Bill Tilghman

    That question asks for an answer that no one can give. We do not have any information as to the concentrations of carbon in the atmosphere back in the era when coal and wood were being most heavily consumed in the past. Why would there be any more of an impact now, when you consider the facts that the United States is the cleanest of the modern industrial nations on this planet?

    Do you have any understanding of the dynamics of the atmosphere to the point that you can definitively quantify the present carbon load, much less what limit there might be prior to it affecting the ambient temperature at ground level? In the stratosphere the air temperature is far below zero, so how much can we carbon consumers put into the atmosphere to the point it alters climate? No one knows and the point is no one can determine that.

    The real offenders are China, Russia and India who each pollute on the scale of many orders of magnitude more than the United States. None of those countries have any sort of environmental controls in place. In Shanghai the smog load is the worst on the planet – worse by far than the United States ever had. While we have been cleaning up, nothing has been done overseas. If there is anywhere to be concerned about carbon, those nations are the place to focus, yet there is virtually no pressure being brought to bear upon them.

    Now, we are much too far off topic. Have I answered your question? Can you speak to the thread here, or not?

    That’s right, he didn’t. He just quietly stopped following them when Carusone pointed it out after noticing it.

    Beck doesn’t apologize. Beck doesn’t have to apologize. His followers are largely white supremacists which is why they sided with Zimmerman and not Martin, why they swallowed Beck’s lies about Obama and the New Black Panther Party and the lies about ACORN.
