MHP wins "Quote of the Year" from RW think tank because...

The Media Research Center, the think tank that invented "liberal media bias", awarded MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry with "Quote of the Year". Why?

Harris-Perry delivered her award-winning Notable Quotable on the July 1 edition of her eponymous MSNBC talk show when she wished America “happy birthday” the MSNBC way:

“The land on which they (the Founders) formed this Union was stolen. The hands with which they built this nation were enslaved. The women who birthed the citizens of the nation are second class....This is the imperfect fabric of our nation, at times we’ve torn and stained it, and at other moments, we mend and repair it. But it’s ours, all of it. The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery, also the liberation and the hope and the deeply American belief that our best days still lie ahead of us.”


That truthful statement is the worst moon-batty quote of the year from MSNBC that the MRC could find?

1. I'd second that nomination

as being the most truthful statement made on a national platform that I'VE HEARD IN YEARS No matter how painful it is still brutally honest.

3. sadly, these people would not recognize the truth if it bit them on the organ that they use for

what passes for thinking in their world.

4. Come on, alp, everybody knows the Founding Fathers tried to end slavery, and

the settlers were nothing but nice to us savages. Get with it!

I don't know whether to or at RW intentional ignorance.

5. Well it's a woman of color questioning the white, male, aristocratic founder mythos.

To a conservative it can't really get worse than that unless you wedge criticism of their religion in somehow.

6. The RWers do not consider Native Americans to be human beings.

They view such statements the same way we see the statements of PETA nuts. They consider non-white people nothing but animals.
