While MSNBC has remained silent on the hatred and racism to which Melissa-Harris Perry has been subjected since an ill-advised show segment last weekend led to the mocking of Mitt Romney’s Black grandson Kieran, fiery former FOX host Glenn Beck has publicly defended Harris-Perry’s character, while chastising conservatives who are attacking her.
Read a partial transcript of his on-air letter in support of Harris-Perry and watch the clip below:
“She apologizes — for what? It was a break with comedians. Yes, it wasn’t nice. Yes, it was hurtful and divisive if that was the intent, but it clearly was not. There are many dishonest, arrogant, and destructive people on MSNBC, but I really don’t think that this, by any means, was an example of a person like that.
“Going after children, as she said, is not fair game, but that wasn’t her intent. I truly believe that our side, now, is refusing to see her for who she is, and we are engaging now in the worst kind of political destruction.
