Letter to the Editor: Indecent MSNBC broadcasters

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry along with panelist Pia Glenn and comedian Dean Obeidallah recently made vile, disgusting remarks about an infant of African American heritage adopted into the Romney family.

In this case, the obvious hypocritical comparison to what others have said is superfluous because no one should even tangentially soliloquize to this level of abhorrence.

The formal prototypic apologies have been released, but they are vacuous and trivial compared to the malicious rhetoric unleashed on to the patriarch and child of this wonderful family.

Deeds and actions have proven over and over that the Romneys are good decent Americans. Mitt Romney, unlike others in Hollywood, does not have to tote around his adopted black grandchild on his hip to prove anything. What he and his family do for others is kept private and performed silently for the sole purpose of the richness they receive from God.

MSNBC, with Martin Bashir, Chris Matthews and these newest entries, spew racism, pain and trash to the pinnacle of noxious journalism. There is no adequate contrition when you speak to a national audience and broadcast blind hatred as an excuse for political humor.

It and they are not funny — rather, they are just despicable members of the contumelious liberal press who know no boundaries of indecency. One can only wonder, what are the nadirs of sanctity these MSNBC commentators believe exist?
