MSNBC Accuses ´Rightwing´
of Hating Biracial Family in
Super Bowl Cheerios Ad

Breitbart.com, by Jeffrey Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 1/29/2014 10:34:54 PM

On Wednesday night, the official MSNBC Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating General Mills’ decision to air a biracial commercial touting Cheerios during this Sunday’s Super Bowl. However, that tweet came at the expense of suggesting “the rightwing” was racist. Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new#Cheerios ad w/ biracial family. http://on.msnbc.com/1dPgQEU The commercial titled “Gracie” is part two of last year’s popular “Just Checking” commercial for Cheerios, with the father this time using Cheerios to explain to “Gracie” she will soon have a younger sibling.

Comments:
The lunatics at MSNBC must intentionally try to rile up the right. It doesn´t make any sense to spew this sort of stuff for any other reason.

How can MSNBC impugn "the right wing" with no basis? Who has ever complained about these commercials, which are aired quite often? No matter; MSNBC needs to merely suggest and it must be so.

Cheerios have been favorites since sponsoring The Lone Ranger on the radio!!! There is nothing wrong with Cheerios nor their commercial. The hate speech, ´flame-throing,´ by the twits at msnbc are responsible for themselves. ...Their low ratings reflect the public´s reaction to such continuing irrational rants.

Don´t think I have ever bought Cheerios, but this is nonsense. Why aim criticism at a child who will one day look back on this commercial and realize she was used ?

Don´t they look like America today ?

Cheerios has been running a coy television ad, at least in Southern California, with an interracial family of three. Whether I agree with the social message or not is immaterial---- I resent being hit over the head with it at breakfast. Cheerios needs to stick with ads touting the wonders of the cereal. Cheerios was heretofore one of my two cold cereals of choice. No more.

The Right, in my opinion, doesn´t have a problem with biracial families.

But the people that put this ad together had to purposely get a black man, white woman, and a girl that is bi-racial.

For what reason? It´s a breakfast cereal. It´s like they are trying to say look, the family is CHANGING!!!!

Wow. Perhaps they should just let families be families, whatever color they are, and stop trying to socialize ideas on their commercials.

We get it, there are biracial kids. Now sell the cereal.

Replace the family with a gay couple, the company making sure it goes on during the Super Bowl, and then get back to us.

I must have seen that commercial a couple dozen times before I realized it was "controversial."

I´m in the "Who Cares" camp...though I get those who are tired of the left thinking they´re poking us with sticks, expecting some reaction only neanderthals have.

(Personally, I wish we´d finally get the races all mixed up so the left would stop TALKING about it!)

#13, try a reading comprehension course.

If you question the PC aspect of this, I said, simply substitute the bi-racial couple with a gay couple and see it promoted during the biggest viewership event and then it should be obvious.

Do I have a problem with biracial couples? I could care less. But if you can´t see the smarmy PC social engineering aspect of this, I can´t help you with your eye sight.

Let me make it easy for you. Why would a cereal company inject race in an ad? Isn´t it about cereal?

While Black folks make up about 12% of the population of the USA, these days almost every commercial on TV routinely features black people. Chances are the liberal advocacy groups and the Obama crew are pushing the corporations to feature black people in their commercials. One thing is for sure, black folks have no claim that they are not getting their share of face time on TV these days.

They are also featuring a lot of Hispanics in commercials, and to ensure that the viewing public realizes that the actors are Hispanics, somewhere in the commercial they will usually make mention of the actor´s Spanish name and/or the character will speak with either a Spanish accent or with a Southwestern Latino dialict. Just yesterday for the first time I heard a completely Spanish language commercial on what before that was a English language radio station, no doubt those Spanish language commercials will start showing up on the English language TV networks pretty soon. All that is just part of the liberals mission to transform America.

...Cheerios is not breaking any new ground here. "Madison Ave" has been mixing up the families and couples for a few years...

...MSNBC just goes and confirms that they reflect the racist mind obsession to the left...

...my take away is that it´s interesting that Gracie has learned at such a young age how to manipulate her "old man". Just check her eyes...

When MSNBC hosts aren´t busy heaping hatred and abuse on Mitt Romney´s adopted black grandson (singing "one of these things is not like the other" while pointing and laughing at the black toddler sitting on Mitt´s knee), they spend their time calling Republicans racists.

Wow.

Just wow.

So stupid, so dishonest, so pathological that words utterly fail me.

Back wen I was a kid it he early 60´s I had a liberal uncle who would let loose after about 12 "American" brand beers. It always made his diatribe that the only way to get rid of racism is intermintermgling couples by race...

I also saw a liberal say on a CSPAN forum on race in America,that the biracial kid inherits the civility gene from the mom of course and tones down his negro features,making them less threatening..

I´m very much in favor of decent white couples adopting black kids.But I´m not so hot on the marriages because the kid will be taunted in school about it and the kid could also wind up in a single mom household.

Most of the time I don´t understand grown-up people and how their minds work [using the term loosely]. The first time I saw that commercial, it never crossed my mind that anyone could object to it.

The little girl is adorable, button cute, and when dad wakes up from his nap and the Cheerios go flying, it´s a smiley-face moment.

Heart healthy. How a child´s mind works.

Like some here, I didn´t even notice the races of the actors in the commercial. Ditto #23, cute kid fer sure. I get more upset at the commercials with "Dumb dopey Dad" who is balding, has a pot gut, and unbearbly stupid. But he always seems to be married to a incredible sexy supermodel mom. What gives?

Oh, forget about tinfoil hats today, I think a few white hoods are showing amongst "some" posters. Geez...

#25 hits the nail on the head. In nearly every instance where a bi-racial family is shown it is a black man with a white wife. Ask a black woman who is married to a white man what kind of flak she gets from the left and in the black community. Some people just don´t see the manipulation by the media, no matter how obvious. I´m always amazed by the number of people who don´t recognize the bias in the Kneepad Media.

I think #10 has a point simply because people ARE making it an issue even if it is simply because it´s to push a PC agenda, it shouldn´t matter really. However, MSNBC is disgusting in their manipulation. They KNEW people would react to the PC agenda and twisted that around to say the right is racist. We know the left are the real racists. They are continuing to repeat the lies over and over to make sure people believe them as if repeating makes it true. sickening

I keep waiting to see the pictures of the white MSNBC host that has adopted a black or mixed race child. Of course that will never happen because they prefer abortion.

Regarding the Cheerios commercial, no one cares, except, of course, the moonbat left. They are decendants of the original Democrat Ku Klux Klan and love the racial strife.

Conservatives and Tea Party types are not opposed to mixed race marriages. Get over it, moonbats.

Similar Cheerios commercial has been on for several months.
No right winger said anything about it.
Only the left reacts.
What goobs.

Frankly, I´m surprised the left didn´t condemn it for portraying a two parent family.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
