The attack on Mitt Romney and his family because of a picture of their grandchildren that includes a black baby was relentless and morally reprehensible. Why the attacks? For liberals, the adoption of a black baby by conservatives is in itself racist. I noticed that one of the Romney grandchildren snuggled up real close to her adopted sibling.
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry was the worst offender. The most outrageous part of her remarks is that she was “born into large white Mormon family.” It’s bad enough that Harris-Perry is on a MSNBC, but it’s worse that she has a Ph.D. and is a political science professor at Tulane where her academic credentials make her words authoritative. She’s training the next generation of policy makers.
She may have apologized for her remarks, but don’t think she will stop spewing her leftist ideology to young minds of mush.
Liberals are the haters. They started the war on the poor so they would have a compliant and dependent group of voters to keep them in power. They also started the war on women by telling them it’s morally OK to kill their unborn children.
Sandra Bullock and Angelina Jolie have adopted black children. So have Charlize Theron, Jillian Michaels, Michelle Pheiffer, Mariska Hargitay, Jane Fonda, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Hugh Jackman, Stephen Spielberg, and many others you may not know.
I say good for them and the children they adopted because “it’s important to note that adopting black children is not, in fact, a fad. The truth is that racial bias in adoption preference is very prevalent, with black children waiting the longest to find a family.”
One would think that the adoption of hard-to-place children would be praised by everybody. Not so.
Nancy French writes, “Liberals think adoption is great, unless white, Christian, Republicans are the ones doing it.” French goes on to write:
“Apparently, according to the comments on my blog, many people believe conservatives have no business adopting a black child. The New York Times has occasionally jumped in the fray, questioning whether black kids might be better off without parents at all if their only option is of the white variety.”
For a liberal, only liberals can do good things (of course, with other people’s money). You know what the first phrase that comes to mind when they hear about conservatives who adopt children: Child abuse.
French “got many comments from liberals accusing her of exaggeration, claiming she had created a straw-man. “Then, as if on cue, Ann Romney tweeted out a photo of their newest grandchild, adopted by their son Ben and his wife Andelyne.
Here were some of the comments:
• “They only adopted a black baby so Mitt Romney wouldn’t seem racist but we already know…”
• “Mitt Romney out here kidnapping black children. I see what’s going on.”
• “Please give that baby back MITT ROM.”
• “Why do you adopt black babies?????”
• “Mitt Romney adopted a grandchild? So he bought a black baby and went to his daughters house like Here. It needs to be walked and fed daily”
• “So Mitt Romney adopted (purchased) a black grandchild”
• “Please give that baby back @MittRomney”
Take note that two of the Tweets wanted the Romneys to give the baby back. Give the baby back to whom?
My wife and I know many families that have adopted children of various races and nationalities. Some of those children would have died if they had not been adopted.
Liberals are sick, and they vote. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
