A few months ago I put up a post about the liberal racist attacks on Ted Cruz. Well, those rascals are up to it again, but it’s OK because it’s a Fox News reporter and his wife who are the targets of the attacks.
Fox News reporter Adam Housley has some harsh words for those who levy racially-charged insults at him and his wife Tamera Mowry over their interracial marriage.
Earlier today we reported on OWN’s special interview with TV star Mowry, in which she tearfully recounted being called a “white man’s whore,” among other slurs. Speaking with TVNewser, Housley excoriated those who wish to cut down their relationship.
“The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic,” he said. “Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn’t pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better.”
The pair have faced plenty of backlash on social media for their marriage, largely focusing on their interracial relationship, but also for Housley’s time spent as a reporter for Fox News. The couple have been married since 2011 and welcomed a son in 2012.
Here’s the interview with Oprah (via Mediaite)
Michelle Malkin adds more:
Horrific? Yes. Shocking? Not at all. What Mowry experienced is just a small taste of what the intolerance mob dishes out against people “of color” who love, think and live the “wrong” way. I’ve grown so used to it that I often forget how hurtful it can be. Mowry’s candor was moving and admirable. It’s also a valuable teachable moment about how dehumanizing it can be to work in the public eye. Have we really sunk to this?
Young actresses in the 21st century forced to defend their love lives because their marital choices are politically incorrect? We’re leaning backward in the regressive Age of Hope and Change.
Why yes, Michelle, we have sunk that low. More correctly, THEY have sunk that low. This would be absolutely ubiquitous in the liberal media had the invective been spit by conservatives.
Malkin reminds us of similar incidents:
Have you forgotten? Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was excoriated by black liberals for being married to wife Virginia, who happens to be white. The critics weren’t anonymous trolls on the Internet. They worked for major media outlets and institutions of higher learning. USA Today columnist Barbara Reynolds slammed Thomas and his wife for their colorblind union: “It may sound bigoted; well, this is a bigoted world and why can’t black people be allowed a little Archie Bunker mentality? … Here’s a man who’s going to decide crucial issues for the country and he has already said no to blacks; he has already said if he can’t paint himself white he’ll think white and marry a white woman.”
Howard University’s Afro-American Studies Chair Russell Adams accused Thomas of racism against all blacks for falling in love with someone outside his race. “His marrying a white woman is a sign of his rejection of the black community,” Adams told The Washington Post. “Great justices have had community roots that served as a basis for understanding the Constitution. Clarence’s lack of a sense of community makes his nomination troubling.”
California state Senate Democrat Diane Watson taunted former University of California regent Ward Connerly after a public hearing, spitting: “He’s married a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn’t want to be black.”
And our own Skook had something to say about liberal racism as well a while back.
And then there’s my personal favorite involving the omni-smug Soledad O’Brien and actor Jay Thomas.
This is pathetic. On CNN this morning, actor Jay Thomas asks Pollack if he has a fear that a secret movement of black people will team up and try to kill white people, all because he is talking about Obama’s radicalism. And yet Soledad O’Brien never stepped in to even defend Pollack over such an absurd question. In fact towards the end of the video she is praising the “renowned Harvard Law professor”.
To his credit, Pollack handled it with much more dignity and substance than I would have, pointing out the radicalism within the policies of the Obama administration, which got completely ignored by Thomas and O’Brien.
Pollak? Fearing black people? Have you ever met Mrs. Pollock?
Liberals- triumphantly stupid. There is no racism like liberal racism.
