In yet another example of how desperately MSNBC clings to race-baiting to appeal to its far-left audience, MSNBC host Toure Neblett opted to close the December 16 edition of The Cycle by focusing on last's week's now infamous nontroversy regarding Fox News Channel's Megyn Kelly and comments she made about the commercial representation of Santa Claus being white.
Wrapping up his commentary, Neblett suggested that Kelly was a white supremacist -- because she "posit[ed] that whiteness is somehow normal and central while blackness is other or different" -- and then proceeded to quip that President Obama is a Santa Claus-like figure because he is a "generous, benevolent black man... who lives in a place that some people think is magical" and who has "given something to each and every American, whether they've been naughty or nice," referring to the president and his health care overhaul commonly referred to as ObamaCare [LISTEN to the mp3 audio here; WATCH the video below the page break]:
Touré Neblett, the hyper-partisan 9/11 truther who is co-host of MSNBC’s afternoon show “The Cycle,” has said a number of idiotic things over the years.
Usually, he says such things in the context of an attack on a conservative or Republican--like last month when he confidently asserted that U.S. Senate seats can be gerrymandered. On Sunday, however, he decided to change things up a bit and make a stupid comment against a non-Republican by calling CNN anchor Don Lemon a “white leader.”
Do prospective MSNBC hosts have to fail a civics test in order to be hired?
Consider The Cycle’s Toure Neblett who on Thursday made the case that gerrymandering impacts Senate races (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Leave it to the folks at MSNBC to take a tragic shooting as an opportunity to push a liberal agenda. On Monday November 4, the co-hosts of The Cycle brought on NBC terrorism analyst Evan Kohlmann to push the continual MSNBC theme that more armed security would have made the tragic situation which left one TSA agent dead much worse. On top of that, Kohlmann blamed a libertarian talk show host with inciting the shooting, although he produced absolutely no evidence to back up his claim.
The segment began with Kohlmann showing his true MSNBC colors on the subject of guns:
Every time there's an incident at a school at a hospital at a military base or an airport and it involves a gun, the answer is we should have more guns? That doesn't make any sense at all.
Some media figures just can’t let go of the idea that opposition to ObamaCare is fueled by hatred of the president himself. On Wednesday’s The Cycle, co-host Toure engaged in some Matthewsian ranting against opponents of the health care law.
Near the end of a roundtable discussion about the failures of Healthcare.gov, Toure redirected everyone’s attention to what he saw as the major issue: [See video below the break.]
Even though the Nov. 4, 2014, mid-term election is more than a year away, liberals are already doing some wishful thinking regarding the prospects of Democrats winning back control of the U.S. House of Representatives, which is currently under Republican leadership.
During an interview on MSNBC's The Cycle program on Monday, NBC News chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd stated that such “a wave” is entirely possible as a result of the government shutdown, which a poll commissioned by the liberal website MoveOn.org said “appears to be taking an electorally deadly toll on House Republicans.”
MSNBC anchor Toure on Wednesday insisted that he was not a 9/11 truther, despite having several tweets indicating otherwise. After being confronted on Twitter, the Cycle anchor denied, "But I am not so there's that."
However, he has previously tweeted, "How could a plane crash into the Pentagon? And not appear on video cameras?? And leave little wreckage??? #Don'tbuyitfiremenow." [See screen shot below.] Another Tweet from 2009 featured a paranoid video claiming that the Pentagon was hit by a missile: "This fascinating video raises questions about the Pentagon attack: 757 or missle [sic]? http://bit.ly/12AOlN"
As NewsBusters has often reported, the folks at MSNBC have a disturbing habit of deceptively editing videos to radically change their meaning.
Maybe that's where MSNBC's Toure Neblett learned this, for on Friday, he dramatically edited a Magic Johnson tweet about Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper:
On Sunday, NewsBusters wondered how much heat PBS's Tavis Smiley would get for making negative comments about Barack Obama.
The answer came quickly when MSNBC's Toure Neblett tweeted, "Tavis gets value out of being the Prez of the Black Haters of Obama Club. Example: without that he wouldn't have been on MeetThePress today":
According to MSNBC co-host Toure, the acquittal of George Zimmerman on Saturday is proof that America in 2013 is just like the one of 1955 where an African American boy was murdered in Mississippi for talking to a white woman: "We still live in the same America that Emmett Till lived in, an America where blacks are often judged to be a threat to order and citizens are able to destroy their bodies." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
The Cycle anchor sneered that the case "is an old dog-eared narrative about the challenge of getting justice in the an American courtroom, especially in the south, or I should say especially in a stand-your-ground state." Toure, who is an avowed 9/11 Truther conspiracy theorist, asserted that such laws "may not have been racist in the original intention, but it functions in practice to justify too many killings of blacks."
During a panel discussion on Monday's NBC Today about the acquittal of George Zimmerman, left-wing MSNBC host Toure proclaimed the court case to be evidence of inherent racism in American society: "We have an almost all-white jury. We almost never get justice in that situation, especially in the south....I'm taken back to Emmett Till and Amadou Diallo and Iona Jones and all these other situations where we understand that black life means a little bit less than white life in America."

MSNBC analyst and liberal bomb-thrower Michael Eric Dyson was also on the morning show panel, and eagerly agreed with Toure's assertion: "No doubt. And you know, I have two sons, and my son texted me and said, 'How do I protect my two black boys who are very young?' So for us it's a reminder, it's a kind of deja vu all over again and it's a negative appraisal of the American soul..."
