MSNBC's Touré Accuses Mitt Romney of "Niggerization" of President Obama

by at . Comments

MSNBC's Touré, co-host of the network's roundtable show The Cycle, used the n-word to describe Mitt Romney's campaign and its tactics against President Obama.

Touré insists recent comments by Romney were racially charged - somewhat ironic in that Romney was responding to a comment Joe Biden made - that Romney will "put y'all back in chains" - that some felt was racially charged.

"This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like," Romney said. "Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago."

Touré reacted strongly to this, calling it "niggerization" ...

"That really bothered me," he said. "You notice he says 'anger' twice. He's really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man."

"This is part of the playbook against Obama. The otherization, he's not like us. I know it's a heavy thing to say. I don't say it lightly ... But this is niggerization. You are not one of us, and that you are like the scary black man who we've been trained to fear."

Really, Touré?!

As his co-host points out, it's a bit of a stretch to accuse the GOP of racism when he described Biden's more controversial comment using the word "angry."

While Mitt Romney's faux outrage may be laughable, given Republicans' use of equally hard-nosed and divisive political tactics, Touré is pushing it here.

Or is he? Tell us what YOU think in the comments below.

@Eyes- you notice how THEY don't have one thing bad to say about the MSNBC guy Tourne? Yet they can't wait to trash Hank Williams Jr. That's what the TROLLS are all about! That's how they live. They have the nerve to talk about us backing romney and even stoop so low as to label us racist. DEMOCRATS PLAY THE CARD DAILY! Typical entitled and they will reproduce another generation with the same mindset. One week till convention and Obama will shit and squawk the whole time! Throwing anything he can to see what sticks but it's to late! Even a correspondent said today- both sides are fighting over 2 or 3 % of the votes. WE ALL KNOW BY NOW HOW WE WILL VOTE!

Its funny all the racial slurs are coming from the Obama side. "Shackles" from Biden, now this douchebag. Who is really making this a race issue? That's all the Obama campaign has left-Appealing to minorities (blacks, hispanics, gays, etc.) Obama is afraid to talk about anything that really could help this country such as unemployment or the economy. His term in office has been epic waste and the sad thing is...I voted for Obama in 2008.

A REAL man fights his battles alone. Matt must bring his yipee mutts to piddle everywhere. Chely has her right to be a democrat. Matt the only thing you own is those bitches at your side. I believe your team called her a libturd. Namecalling because she differed from ur opinion. Debate the merits. Just sayin.

And FYI,I don't think Matt "owns this site",but I definitely think he own YOU!

@Daina- I keep hearing people say they don't want to go back to the Bush era. Do you see Bush on the ticket anywhere? Isn't there a 2 term limit? Daina- I don't think Bush can run again- can he? Of course the sheep foaming diarrhea at the mouth are dissolutioned and distraught on a daily basis that being the reason that those sheep have been put out to pasture. The shepherd (Obama) is not attending to his Flock. 2 Cabinet meeting is what Obama has had this year. His spokesman said that Bamie has a lot on his plate but this is pure neglect. Unemployment numbers this month went up in 44 out of 50 states yet Bamie O Bamie has not had one job council meeting. Oh! But he has had 100 Fundraisers. Daina- who voted for this walking talking mistake? The economy is stagnant. Obama has already spent more than bush did in 8 yrs. Sheep! Riding nothing but faith & hope.

@Daina- The only person the Democrats hate more than Mitt is Allen West. As you know- West is a Rep. congressman, Retired Lieutenant Colonel, a Tea Party Member... And Black! West could have been a good VP candidate- nothing against Ryan. West is the Liberals worst nightmare. West says that the Democrats are trying to put African Americans back on the Plantation and that is disaster for black democrats. The truth always is. Minorities have accomplished nothing hanging on to that party. They follow and they can't even tell you why. West catches heat constantly but he's not budging. I've heard it has something to do with -self respect, morals, accountability, self motivation and the American Dream! If you catch yourself in a conversation and these topics are discussed- your around the right people.
