Twisted MSNBC host denigrates America on Memorial Day weekend

Leave it to the American-hating progressive left to find a way to denigrate the country on Memorial Day weekend.

Applying the twisted logic that defines the far left, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, in a lead up to comparing detained enemy combatants at Guantanamo to American slaves, makes the inaccurate assumption that it was wrong of the U.S. to drop the atom bomb on Japan to bring a close to World War II.

“Sometimes we do the wrong things. Sometimes we make the choice that we did in Hiroshima or in Nagasaki. But then we have to make a choice as a country to say that use of force was incorrect,” Harris-Perry said on Saturday’s show.

Which is little more than revisionist history that conveniently ignores the reality that had the U.S. not used the atomic bomb, an invasion of Japan would be necessary and that the casualties would be enormous, with some estimates as high as 1 million.

But why allow the truth to get in the way when you can hate on America on the weekend set aside to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Unfortunately, the few who watch MSNBC are subjected to this rubbish as if it were the truth. Even more unfortunate, this misguided premise is repeated on college campuses across the land with regularity.

And just as egregious is Harris-Perry comparing the plight of the American slave to Islamic jihadists captured on the battlefield, many of whom are now engaged in a hunger strike.

“I also appreciate that the hunger strikers are not trying to die. They’re trying to generate autonomy in the context of something that strips their humanity — something we certainly know about from the experience of American slavery, and that the language of ‘before I be a slave, I’d be buried in my grave and go home to my Lord and be free’ — just that idea of creating human freedom within the context of horrible human conditions.”
