Romney and the Ku Klux Klan? MSNBC Report Backfires

Some folks were taken a back by the “lean Forward” Network as they looked to a slogan used by the KKK in the 1920s.  Seems that once a racist groups uses a phrase, better not ever use it again. MSNBC forgets that Progressives and Unions were a bit racist themselves.  Looking for the Union label, used to mean the item was made by  White workers in America.   Opps!

Seems to me that Obama used  the Gingrich phrase, Winning the Future

Don’t just repeat it. Report it.

MSNBC tries to Equate Romney with KKK

That’s the lesson this week for MSNBC and for The Washington Post, both of which apologized for repeating a liberal blog’s claim that Mitt Romney had uttered a phrase on the campaign stump that was used in the past by the Ku Klux Klan.

It appears that Mr. Romney did not in fact say the words “keep America American,” as AMERICAblog reported on Tuesday. The blog said that he had done so on two occasions, one last year and one last week, and stated (accurately) that “Keep America American” was a phrase employed by the K.K.K. in the 1920s.

But Mr. Romney had actually said “keep America America” on both occasions, according to online video.
