From NewsBusters, HERE is your post-Thanksgiving reading, utter stupidity spouted by Professor Melissa Harris-Perry of Tulane University and MSNBC commentator.
SHARPTON: Give me your idea of the kinds of things people ought to deal with this Thursday when their families and friends get together.Audio HERE. For someone with a degree in English, Dr. Harris-Perry seems to have little regard for sentence structure. Heh.
HARRIS-PERRY: You know, it's an interesting question. I've been thinking a lot about Thanksgiving and the moment that we're in because, you know, our economic crisis right now is highly tied to the European economic crisis and so I was thinking about kind of what is that first Thanksgiving when these illegal immigrants from Europe come over and are fed by the people of the actual Americas, the Native and indigenous people, you know, here on this land, that they are trying to escape religious prosecution and persecution in Europe and then you have the Europeans basically calling them dirty, no good, worthless, basically 99 percenters, right? And all of that is now playing out in a different way as we see the 99 percent pushing back against this idea that the elites are the only one that deserve to have a Thanksgiving dinner. All of that.
According to Melissa Harris-Perry's web site, she is a professor of political science and the founding director of the Anna Julia Cooper Project on Gender, Race, and Politics in the South. She has previously taught at the University of Chicago and Princeton University.
