Saturday Night Card Game (MSNBC not subject to its own language tyranny)
The video below correctly was termed “cringe-worthy” by Noah Rothman at Mediaite.
The cringe-worthy part starts around the 2:30 mark when Melissa Harris-Perry asks the panel for their best race jokes. (An edited down version is at Newsbusters if you don’t want to sit through it all.)
Stop right there.
From the “can you imagine if Fox News did that” files, only MSNBC could do that because MSNBC is the most relentless race card player so it can do what it would mock if anyone else did it.
The jokes weren’t that bad, they just weren’t that funny. The jokes all were built around ethnic and racial stereotypes, as many good ethnic/racial jokes are. I must say, though, I did like Perry’s Jewish joke.
I don’t fault Perry and the panel for lightening up.
I just wish that we didn’t have to live under the tyranny of the MSNBC language police.

The Lefty paradigm is that only white people can be racist, regardless of what a person of color says, does or espouses. It’s why there is no white equivalent to Dave Chappell, Chris Rock or the late Ricard Bryon. Only on White Supremest web sites can you get that particular flavor of “humor”. Anywhere but in the Kabuki theater that is modern America, racism would be racism, based on the content of the expression and not on who expresses it.
MSNBC is to serious journalism what the Weekly World New is (was) to tabloids; it’s at the bottom of a deep sewer.
How many of these people are close friends of the ruling class? I wonder how many of those ruling class friends would like to make a comment about these television personalities. Perhaps someone should ask.
Make them live up to their own book of rules.
No doubt about it, this would be a fainting couch fiesta had it happened on Fox. Harris-Perry is right about the healing power of humor though she’d have more credibility had she not maxed out the race card to incite political hatred. Perhaps we should take a page from her book and try to heal the great political divide. Anyone have any good liberal jokes? 😀

I recall from my youth the Polish/Italian Joke Book.
Loved that book-
Suppose I ought leave it at that.
spent my whole life telling jokes about all races/colors/creeds and I plan on doing it as long as I live.
Prof. Jacobson, I wish you’d rephrase ‘I just wish that we didn’t have to live under the tyranny of the MSNBC.’ That’s something John Boehner would say.
We don’t here, nor anywhere else the likes of the people here frequent.
The goal is for MSNBC to live under the tyranny of truth and our shoving it in their faces — and shoving their lies up their — well, you get the point.
Like the racial jokes they told, words do mean something. That’s why I stop discussions and demand plain words be used when someone refers to a ‘red state’ or ‘blue state’ (which was a leftist ploy of forcing the public to associate the GOP with the red tide of Communist oppression so ingrained in the public consciousness, and ‘true blue,’ that is ingrained as well).
Joke: Why did Michelle Obama get tossed from ROTC? Because every time the drill sergeant yelled “Get down!,” she’d start dancing.
NBC, Ratings Wise, has sunk to 5th Place for Networks.
Time wounds all heels. May it be so, God.
And closing in on the more credible Russia Today.
I gotta confess… I hardly ever watch MSNBC so I’m out of the loop as to what can pass race-wise and what can’t according to them.
I think that nearly everyone has told an ethnic joke on occasion and telling it in front of the target individual/group is just straight forward, a practice that you WILL NOT find at MSNBC.
That network has nothing to do with the truth, common sense or reality for that matter…
What’s an MSNBC, please?
[…] Jacobson at Legal Insurrection has up a terrific post on “Saturday Night Card Game (MSNBC not subject to its own language tyranny). Go check it […]
Woohoo. Dershowitz has been reading my Cathilc & anti semitism posts & has taken to campaigning against a Hondurian Papal candidate.
This should be fun.
After reading John Evelyn’s diary ( thank you juba for sending me on a fact finding mission ) I am somewhat of an expert on Jewish circumcism 15 th century style & Rome’s Jewish ghettos.
Bring it on . As a Church of England Sunday schooler I was taught The Romans killed Jesus not the Jewish. My classics studies said the Romans always crucified insurgents. At one time 6000 lined e Appia for months.
As for modern circumcision experts, I think the Royal Deluxe II takes the cake:
Make that the 17th century for Evelyn . The ghetto began as a papal order in 1555 & only demolished in 1888 .
As for jokes , I always forget them within 5 minutes. True life has far better twists.
Q: What has an asshole at each end, and is a mile long?
A: An #Occupy protest march.

A: The ink isn’t dry yet.
Q. Why won’t Obama laugh at himself?
A. Because MSNBC would call him a racist.
Q: What do you get when you cross a crooked politician with a crooked lawyer?
A: Barack Obama.
FINALLY! President Fudd seeks economic advice from the private sector: Meets with top execs in the race-baiting industry:
In the leftist mindset, it is perfectly fine for leftists to tell ethnic jokes, especially when they preface them with a statement warning that is what they are about to do.
The reason it is okay is that leftists are presumed to be pure of heart and free of any (impermissible) prejudices. Their inherent moral superiority cleanses them of any evil intent – and, as we well know, leftists judge morality only by intent, outcomes are serendipitous in their world.
