MSNBC’s racist Cinco de Mayo “tribute”

May 5, 2014

 I have been unable to find a You Tube video of MSNBC’s “tribute” to Cinco de Mayo but if you are interested you can watch it here. The “tribute” featured a host dancing around in a sombrero, shaking maracas, and drinking tequila. Quite stereotypical, don’t you think? And might I add racist to boot,at least by the standards set by the left, and this is coming from the propaganda arm of the Obama regime.

  While searching for this story I came across several articles which all asked the same question; what would the outcry from the left be if this were Fox News which ran this segment instead of MSNBC, but we all know MSNBC would be the first media outlet to condemn this so I am not even going to bother to parrot what so many others have already said.

   Just last week a Dartmouth University sorority canceled a Mexican themed fundraiser because one student found it to he offensive. Here is more:

It was supposed to be a “Phiesta,” with virgin piña coladas, strawberry daiquiris and Mexican-themed snacks for everyone to enjoy, as stressed out students at Dartmouth College prepared to enter the final phase of the semester.

But Daniela Hernandez spoke, and the sorority listened.

Hernandez, Class of 2015, said the event, planned for April 26, was “exploitative” and “inappropriate,” because it was a wink to the upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebration. It was also proof, she said, that the date is nothing more than a “drinking holiday in the United States, cultural appropriation and the inappropriate usage of cultural clothing, and the exploitation of groups of people and cultures for the sake of business opportunities.”

As a result, the presidents of the Phi Delta Alpha fraternity and the Alpha Phi sorority at Dartmouth decided to cancel the party, which was meant to be a fundraiser for a cardiac health charity.

“We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser,”

  So, because one student found it offensive the sorority decided to cancel the fundraiser which would have raised money for people with heart issues. Yet here we have a major news outlet doing exactly what this sorority was accused of doing, with a benefit to nobody, and there is nary a word from the politically correct left. I guess membership does indeed have its privileges……

    A troll visited my blog today, alleging that I spew “violence” and went into a Cinco de Mayo rant. I have no objections to any ethnic festivals. In America, you would think the people would hold an American flag to signify their allegiance. I am against any Communist or other activities that are intending to destroy our nation and “flaunt it” in our faces. In fact, I advocate a military annexation of Mexico. The troll has not returned. Yes, conservatives want the Mexican people. We want Mexico. All of Mexico. Enough Mexicans are in America to make the case after we invade Mexico and turn all of their citizens into taxpaying American citizens as there will not be anymore welfare or food stamps or free education or free Obamacare. My family came to America to be Americans, in 1861, and no Sicilian spoken, only English. Every male was expected to serve (I did) in the military because this is our country. My American Heritage & Traditions, make Fourth of July, Easter, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Christmas, all our, holidays and we always have, an American flag proudly displayed.
    Someday, the people will understand.

      Appreciate your comments and stance here Brittius. The ‘breed’ who rally behind the mindset of the corrupt rulers don’t want to ‘understand’ and consider traditional American ‘values and morals’ pass׳e. This mental illness is taught as whatever the new crazy word of the day is and lifted up as the the ‘new sanity’ – we know that’s not good, but good is not taught. Trolls are paid by this Regime to discredit and ‘ridicule’ any ‘reasonable person’ and like their ‘masters’ it’s all ‘their way or you’re wrong and stupid!’ And they are ‘justified’ in telling you that because they ‘can’ without consequence (so far). Just like the festive dancing fools, it’s only ‘rad’ for them – insanity clause rules. 😏

      Well understood, Brittius. One side of my family came from Hungary, the other from Ireland and they all came when immigrating was a one way ticket. When they came here, they never expected to see again the family and friends they left behind.

      Yes, I have no problem with people who want to celebrate their heritage either but I just wish they would accept our’s as well instead of trying to change it. In California schools will not allow students to wear American flag shirts on CInco de Mayo because it is considered “offensive.” Somehow we have gotten this backwards.

    We know we are playing a political game, a deadly serious game, one side against the other. We keep hoping there are some rules and a neutral referee. Wrong. The referee (media) and the opponent (leftists) are all on the same side.

      They have created a crisis and they control both sides so they can get the result they want. The fix is already in on this and much more, there really is only one side in Washington.

    I don’t see what they did as racist. It was a caricature, designed to be absurd. That said, if this had been done by FOX news the reconquistas would have been out in force. Selective outrage, and this isn’t the only example.

      Yes, selective outrage is exactly it. I didn’t have a problem with this but I did enjoy throwing it back in their faces for once.

    On a lighter note, you think MSNBC is trying to be like their idea of FOX to improve their ratings? That’s warped.

      Could be. If so they really have to perception of reality because they have been so blinded in Obama’s aura.

    I grew up in a part of L.A. where a mixed Anglo/Jewish neighborhood butted up to a Mexican and a Japanese neighborhood. Everyone used to enjoy everyone else’s festivals, we didn’t know that it was bigoted, we just enjoyed going to our neighbor’s parties.

    You can see why I don’t consider our present situation as good progress.

      We seem to be going backwards, don’t we? It is all part of the divide and conquer strategy and it seems to be working.
