The hosts at MSNBC are fairly notorious for their outrageous commentary, and for the far-left skew they apply to nearly everything they report upon. But what one MSNBC headline recently had to say may go too far, even by her network’s loose standards.
In a speech Monday at Cornell University titled, “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality,” MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped Trayvon Martin “whooped the [expletive] out of George Zimmerman” before he was fatally shot.
“I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive,” she said. “I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. And I hope he whooped the [expletive] out of George Zimmerman … And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him and you know how I know? Because he killed him.”
Harris-Perry’s sad commentary was part of Cornell’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture. Scroll down to see the YouTube video.
