MSNBC’s Toure has already repeatedly proven his increasingly low threshold for intelligent conversation – but this week he manages to devolve into perhaps the single most repugnant, arrogant, and shockingly insensitive rant seen on a major news network in quite some time. Watch as he expounds on the deep gratitude he has for his right to kill off an unborn child because it would have been far too much of an inconvenience for him. He actually speaks the phrase “abortion saved me” – apparently unaware of the stunning irony of such a statement. (Given his obvious stupidity, it is likely Toure is unaware of most things…)
(And why does this guy talk like a white homosexual interior designer? Just sayin…)
Toure wraps his gratitude around his own self-importance of course – an all too common theme among liberals. While the issue of abortion is a worthy topic of discussion, given its significant moral and societal implications, Toure cheapens the discussion, minimizes it to near-parody, while also managing to interject the concept of abortion as being “God’s will”.
Now Toure is a slight, rather effeminate man who was not particularly successful early in life and who most recently was dubbed the “Kim Kardashian of social commentary” by Dr. Boyce Watkins of YourBlackWorld.com. Here is an excerpt of Dr. Watkins’ quite accurate assessment of the unintentionally comical Toure:
Toure of MSNBC is the man who has every intelligent black person in America wondering why he’s on TV, myself included. There are no credentials in his background which lead you to believe that he should be defining the direction of national thought on serious political issues (the bio I found says that he dropped out of Emory University in 1992). He also seems to say things for entertainment, rather than substantive, value and doesn’t seem to take his work all that seriously.
…I refer to Toure as the Kim Kardashian of social commentary because both Toure and Kim are the kinds of fascinating cartoon characters who are famous for d**n near nothing. His talent is that he is able to make white folks keep him propped up as a relevant black face when everything on his resume says that he’s disgustingly unqualified. He enters debates with brilliant and well-trained scholars like Michael Eric Dyson with nothing more to say than “I agree with what he just said.” Seeing Dyson debating with Toure is like watching Denzel Washington perform Shakespeare with Young Jeezy.
…Forgive me for stating the obvious when it comes to Toure, but networks need to respect black experts who know what the h**l they’re talking about, and not just chase after their favorite go-to negro who entertains them the most. Times and issues are too serious for this kind of buffoonery, and it’s time to call it for what it is. LINK
While Dr. Watkins’ has little use for the self-important Toure, it should be noted he also points an accusatory finger of racism directly at MSNBC as well. Toure is the “go-to negro” for MSNBC. A vapid, oddly white-ish character (which makes him similar to Barack Obama) that is supposed to add some laughable attempted street cred to the flailing far-left network.
For those who might think that assessment a tad harsh, simply watch the video of Toure thanking God for abortion. Case closed…
