Bloody Hell: MSNBC Fashion Protest

When the Texas State Legislature was in special session to pass legislation which prohibited discretionary abortions after 20 weeks and mandated improved surgical standards for such womens' health procedures, an anchor at MSNBC chose a striking physical prop to protest the proceedings.

It was prudent to prepare for strange civic expressions considering mob mentality and trashy  theatrics which abortion activists have employed during the course of this Texas abortion debate.  Spectators' demonstrations drown out lawmaker debate at the end of the first special session to obstruct passage. Abortion activitist chanted Hail Satan over pro-life prayers.  During the second special session, State Troopers reportedly took urine and feces away from  pro-choice protesters.

In this environment, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst (R-TX) did not want feminine hygiene products to be used as projectiles during the legislative session.  So tampons and condoms were prohibited from being  brought into the gallery, along with paint and other biological excretions.

But a week after the messy instance of legislation, MSNBC hostess Melissa Harris-Perry engaged in the Theater of the Absurd by wearing tampon earrings.  As she donned the custom made fashion protest accessories, Harris Perry ejaculated:

I just have to show these. My producer Lorena made for me last week some tampon earrings because of course you’re remember that the Texas state legislature said that you couldn’t bring tampons in when they were going these women to in fact stand up for their own reproductive rights. You weren’t allowed initially to bring tampons. So, just in case that ever happens again ladies, you can just bring them on your earrings.

As a news junkie, I do not object to a commentator having a pronounced opinion. On a cable channel like MSNBC which boasts the marketing mantra "Lean Forward" and is colloquially called "Mess-DNC", it is expected that views are going to be slanted to the left. But Ms. Harris-Perry is also supposed to be a Professor of Political Science from Tulane University, with earlier stints at Princeton and the University of Chicago (in African American Studies).   With this that sort of pedagogic pedigree, Melissa Harris Perry stoops to conquer by wearing tampon earrings a week after the issue has passed.

Tiger Beat Terrorist Parody
Is MSNBC so desperate for ratings that it needs to use cheap publicity stunts like Rolling Stone by putting the surviving Boston Bomber as on the cover like the equivalent of being Tigerbeat Terrorist to win the spotlight?  Or does Harris-Perry's lack of decency embody the libertine left's total lack of tact?  Or does it show that NBC's cable news channel has no standards--after all, they give Al Sharpton a daily news show each evening.  Resist we much (sic).
