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- I checked the Political Weather- There's a 99.9% chance the Liberals will play the race card thru Saturday! This is as predictable as heat in August. I'm guessing 95% of America already knows how they will vote and the other 5% don't own a TV. Race Cards have been dropping faster than Connie Carmen's tube top on Nickle Beer night. @ Daina- 2016 is a must. Doesn't bash Bama but you get a clear understanding of how disconnected voters can be. The movie lifts the fog. @Chely- you are a poster child for self inflicted pain. You talk in circles and you refuse to see the predictable racism that's in your corner. Democrats are making an everlasting name. You are a total waste of my time and you can't debate. @67Fuon3- You really need to find a better class of people to run with. It's got to be difficult knowing that they are so far out in left field. Seriously- after this is over- get rid of the ball & chain Trolls. Go Solo!

@Chely An interesting choice in put-down symbols--the sheep--that's what you Libtoads are and have been regarding Obama. Little Sheepies following the Pied Piper! Mindlessly following as long as he holds up some entitlement in front of your noses, uh-huh, and with that you take another step FORWARD towards him! You are soooooooooooooooo Neci that I'd swear you were Siamese twins! :)

Matt what's zero wrong about? U really want to take the stance that Republicans haven't cut education? Because if u do I can go ahead and school on that subject. I thought u were worried about ur kids future Matt. And I thought u were fiscally sound. Do u think adding two trillion to our national debt to hand out tax cuts is fiscally sound? And u haven't heard Obama's plan from his mouth well gee I wonder why that is? U close ur ears to the man that's why. U don't want to know his plan u just want to discredit it for ur side. Again what's Romney's plan? Oh cut taxes that's it. Hopefully everything will fall into place after we cut all these taxes. Yea cuz it really worked while bush was president.

Matt I don't need u to roll over for shit. We don't agree on nothing and that's fine that's why there is no point in arguing with u because u will never admit that there are fucked up things going on in ur party and that's fine that's why I haven't commented shit to ya. But today u felt the need to talk shit towards my very first comment (which I should remind u I didn't back up this MSNBC Guy) because u wanted to argue with someone and u thought I wouldn't say shit back for some very unknown reason. U damn well know what I say is true please oh please get off of politicians dicks. Ur the one who tries to ramrod over anything a Democrat says on here so don't start crying because I'm the one to give it right back to u. U don't want to argue with me then don't comment on my shit other wise u already know what the outcome will be.

@Matt Wow! I see you've been battling the libturd trolls this afternoon! Ha! Not surprised, really! It's Saturday and the whole Team 67 is out for a lark today I gather! Chely spewing the usual. Same rhetoric, different day is all. I will weigh in on this article though...No. 1: What do you expect from MSNBC? They probably have an office in the West Wing where Jay Carney walks in 4 or 5 times a day & dictates to them what the headlines & lead stories will be. Sterling example of "freedom 'o the press"! Ha! No.2: This little ferret, Toure, has gotta be one of Obama's media henchmen trained to further that racial divide Barry 'n Eric are the architects of--Oh yeah! It's so blatantly obvious! David Axelrod must have a bloody spot on a wall in his office where he's beating his head at least 3 times a day! "FORWARD"--over the cliff...only mindless lemmings need follow!

I just got on here...good grief! I can't believe that some bloggers refuse to face the obvious! Obama's Camp knows they are losing their butts in this campaign, thus, they send these termites out to play the race card in such an unveiled and brusque manner! For heaven's sakes, people did you see this type of campaign rhetoric used the last time around? No, because Obama was winning. Everything was positive---glossed over with the "hope 'n change" mantra. Hold onto your hats....there'll be a "new low" come out of the Obama camp now weekly. The only racists in this race are the Obama folks & their hatchet men such as Toure. Sad, but oh well, RomRyan 2012!

That's exactly what your comment is worth= Zero. I'm thinking it will take some getting use to BUT your going to see a different side than your use to seeing. We will not roll over at your rants and typical moaning about how THE MAN/RACE - is getting over on you people! Your infecting our Future! Hopefully your prepared because this defeat will sting. When the election is over- that's the part you need to concern yourself with.

If a republican were to say what Biden said it would be front page news in every conceivable media but it's no where to be found. Liberal media to thank for that. Y'all got duped by clownbama
