(Before It's News)

My category of “Liberal Loonies’ got a super catch in its file with this rare one. Yes, been a rough week, so I give you this looney who now tells us it is not P.C. to use the expression, “Hard Work.” Longer more idiotic clip over at the link.

10/24/2015: Harris-Perry: We Have To Be ‘Super-Careful’ About Using ‘Hard Worker’ Because of Slaves and Poor Moms

AGUILAR: But let`s be fair. If there`s somebody who is a hard worker when he goes to Washington is Paul Ryan. Not only works with the Republicans but Democrats. You know very well that I work on immigration issue, trying to get Republicans to support immigration reform. Paul Ryan is somebody who has reported immigration reform, has worked with somebody like Luis Gutierrez. Luis Gutierrez is very respectful, speaks highly of Paul Ryan. This is somebody who`s trying to govern.”

HARRIS-PERRY: “Alfonso, I feel you. I just want to pause on one thing. Because I don`t disagree with you that I actually think Mr. Ryan is a great choice for this role. I want us to be super careful when we use the language “hard worker.” because I actually keep an image of folks working in cotton fields on my office wall. Because it is a reminder about what hard work looks like. So, I feel you that he`s a hard worker. I do. But in the context of relative privilege, and I just want to point out, when you talk about work life balance and being a hard worker, the moms who don`t have health care who are working – “

Monday afternoon, David Rutz of The Washington Free Beacon found this great gem from the Saturday edition of ultra-liberal Melissa Harris-Perry’s eponymous MSNBC show in which she scolded guest Alfonso Aguilar for using the term “hard worker” because it’s demeaning to slaves and working women. Prior to the exchange, Harris-Perry described House candidate and Republican Congressman Paul Ryan (Wisc.) as “a catfish noodler” because similarly to how “you go catch the catfish with your hands,” the same can be said about what Ryan would face as Speaker in “trying to wrangle the current Republican Party into line.”
