Melissa Harris Perry
The worst part about the Orlando shooting wasn’t that 49 innocent people were killed. It’s that gay night clubs are no longer safe spaces…for straight women. According to Elle editor Melissa Harris-Perry, hanging out at gay clubs is just something that “we straight girls” do. Straight women all around the world “maintain intimate friendships with beautiful gay men, basking in their appreciation of our femininity, jointly appraising male sexiness, seeking expert opinions on relationships, and invading party spaces.”
After having a meltdown last Friday, it’s been revealed that MSNBC’s most insufferable host Melissa Harris-Perry, has been let go from her four-year stint at the left-wing cable network. Since 2012, the Wake Forest University professor has “educated” her audiences in the ways of racism, evil conservatives and anti-American ideals. It was hard to pick just ten, but here’s a look back on some of Harris-Perry’s craziest rants and stunts.
Just before the Super Bowl, pop star Beyonce released a Black Lives Matter themed music video set in New Orleans called “Formation”, in which she gives the double bird to the police, among other things. Of course, this was prime fodder for MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, who finds race in everything from from Star Wars to the term “hard worker.”
On Sunday’s Meet the Press, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry blamed the growth of charter schools in New Orleans post-Katrina as one of the reasons the city has not improved since the storm. The MSNBC host proclaimed “for many who are African-American it's not a better city in part because this so-called success story in the schools also included charterizing the entire system, which also meant deunionizing all teachers."
This Sunday on MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, a panel discussed the possibility of infidelity on Bill Clinton’s part and the impact that could have on Hillary’s campaign. The chat revolved around the potential of a Joe Biden run in 2016 and what could bring that about. MSNBC contributor Robert Traynham wondered what could derail the former secretary of state: “It could also be Benghazi...it could also be some Clinton email stuff. It also could be, perhaps, some infidelities in her marriage.”
After The Nation’s Michelle Goldberg suggested that infidelity in that marriage may be baked in, Harris-Perry lost it: “Okay, whoa. I’m sorry, we have to pause. Because I don’t know if we can just say that on TV. So let me just. Not that there may be infidelities, but just that we presume it to be baked in.”
Last week, an Oklahoma man, who recently converted to Islam, went on a violent stabbing spree at his former workplace, including beheading a coworker, but MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry was quick to dismiss his religion as being a factor in the killing. Appearing on her self-titled show on Saturday morning, Harris-Perry insisted that “it is a story that I read as a workplace violence story” and then proceeded to condemn any references to his Islamic faith when discussing the crime.
In case the tampon earrings and musings on child custody hadn’t clued us in to the ongoing Whack-A-Mole game in Melissa Harris-Perry’s brain, she’s shared her fantasy of abortion entertainment by Beyoncé.
During “The Melissa Harris-Perry Show,” the MSNBC host had an “imagining” that the screen projection during Beyoncé’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Show (VMAs) performance spelled out “abortion” instead of “feminist.” On her August 30 show, Harris-Perry explained, “I do wonder if it could have been even more political, like beyond the ‘F’ word.” Video Below.
The three Associated Press reports I've seen on the UAW's failure to win the right to represent hourly workers at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee — the first two were covered in NewsBusters posts here and here; the wire service's 3:52 p.m. report is here — all mention in one way or another what UAW President Bob King is now calling "unprecedented outside interference" in the runup to the election. (VW, which can only run the factory with the kind of "workers councils" it has at its other worldwide plants in the U.S. if its workers are represented by an outside union, supported the UAW's efforts.)
But AP reporters Tom Krisher and Erik Schelzig, as well as panelists discussing the aftermath on Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC program this morning, "somehow" ignored the "outside interference" of the person who holds the most powerful political office on earth. That's right. President Obama, whose National Labor Relations Board conducted the election, weighed in on Friday morning with statements at a "closed door" meeting which were clearly designed to be leaked. Here is what Richard Cowan and Bernie Woodall at Reuters reported on Friday morning (HT Gateway Pundit):
Via Josh Feldman at Mediaite, we learn that Saturday’s Melissa Harris-Perry hootenanny on MSNBC once again addressed that the Lean Forward Network calls “The All-Out Assault on Women.” A feminist support circle discussed how pro-lifers should be banned from all “decision-making tables” and America needs to stop “sacralizing sperm.”
That transparently anti-Catholic crack came from religion professor Anthea Butler, causing Harris-Perry to proclaim “Anthea Butler wins Nerdland for the day!” The Commissar who will ban pro-lifers from debates is amazingly humorless “Daily Show” founder Lizz Winstead:
You know NBC is experiencing backlash over its planned Hillary Clinton miniseries when a liberal National Public Radio reporter criticizes NBC’s decision to air a miniseries prior to the 2016 presidential election. Appearing on the Melissa Harris-Perry show on August 10, NPR reporter David Folkenflik had some harsh words about the upcoming documentary.
Folkenflik, commenting on the Republican National Committee chairman's threat to boycott NBC and CNN if they go through with planned Clinton documentaries, argued that:
