Perpetual victims find new and bad reason to declare perpetual victimhood

Man looking depressed

The liberal cable news network MSNBC posted a tweet on Wednesday night in which it suggested that conservatives hate biracial families.

“Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww:  the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family,” read the tweet, which was accompanied by a link to an article about the Cheerios ad.
MSNBC has deleted the tweet and apologized, but for the life of me I can’t understand why. For your consideration:
Daily Mail, 2011: A majority of Republican voters in Mississippi believe interracial marriage should be made illegal.

The recently conducted phone poll, by credible firm Public Policy Polling (PPP), slipped the unambiguous racial question into a broader survey about the political chances of Republican candidates.

PPP, a Democrat-affiliated polling firm based in Raleigh, North Carolina, said it ‘surveyed 400 usual Mississippi Republican primary voters from March 24 to 27’.

Within the usual questions about candidates and whether the respondent viewed them favourably or unfavourably, the survey then asked the simple question: ‘Do you think interracial marriage should be legal or illegal?’.

While 40 per cent of respondents said interracial marriage should be legal, 46 per cent said it should be illegal - and a further 15 per cent were undecided.
I’m sorry guys, but I’m afraid your victim card has been declined.
