A pro-abortion MSNBC host apologized today for mocking the family of Mitt Romney for adopting a baby who is black.

MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry, who wore tampon earrings during a July broadcast, mocked the Romney family.She sent out the following tweets this morning:



Meanwhile, as Newsbusters reports: “During the panel, comedian and actress Pia Glenn sang the old Sesame Street ditty “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same … “And that little baby, front and center, would be the one.” Laughter ensued. The black website NewsOne reports Glenn issued sincere apologies on Twitter for her insensitivity to transracial adoptions.”

““I am absolutely aware of the added challenges of interracial adoptive families and I see how I added to that. I did not mean to. Still wrong,” Glenn tweeted. Then, to conservative actor Nick Searcy, who has an adopted black son: “I want to apologize again. I’m sorry.”

As Caleb Howe of Right Scoop reported:

On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction:


The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix.

This is the same MSNBC host who told viewers that human life doesn’t begin at conception. Instead, it begins, the MSNBC host contends, when the parents think it begins — not when science says it does.

She also called unborn babies “things that might turn into humans.”
