MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch – Like, you know, this coconut Marco Rubio down in Florida

marco-rubioSurely this isn’t racist or anti-Semitic since a pile of steam liberal progressive filth Donny Douche, err excuse me Donny Deutsch said it. Add to the fact that Deutsch, who happens to be a MSNBC contributor (big shock) said it on the Joy Behar show on HLN. This story, which I first read over at Newsbusters found that both the New York Times and Urban Dictionary define as a coconut as a “person who is tan on the outside” and “white on the inside.” Marco Rubio is the son of Cuban exiles. Michelle Malkin has had experiences with this insult as well.


A partial transcript of the segment, which aired at 9:19pm on February 22 at 9:19pm EST:



JOY BEHAR: Let’s talk about the Republican Party. They’re becoming- You’re a brander. You know about that. They are the party of no. And that’s not a good thing.


DONNY DEUTSCH: It’s not a good thing. But what they figured out, finally, unfortunately, in the last six weeks, if you think about Brown winning, if you think about in Virginia where they won, if you think about this guy Rubio they’re pushing in Florida, they’re understanding that just this vitriolic, “We hate Obama. The world is bad,” the Sarah Palins of the world, the Dick Cheneys of the world, the Rush Limbaughs, is unelectable. Let’s put forward a fiscal conservative, socially- what appears to be socially moderate in terms of whatnot , that’s the electable candidate. So they’re getting it. There’s a difference between-


BEHAR: Who is that person?


DEUTSCH: It’s basically it’s a Scott Brown. And once again. It’s amazing. They’re talking about presidential timber. He’s never done anything in his whole life. That’s the whole thing. It’s the blank piece of paper people can assign things to. One of the reasons, interestingly enough, I think we are a society of no right now. One of the reasons Obama got elected, because he was a blank page. You could assign hope to him.


BEHAR: That’s true.


DEUTSCH: We’re such a media frenzy, 24/7 world that almost anybody that’s been around too long, there’s so much “no” attached to it, that you almost need that blank piece of paper. That’s the new model. Like, you know, this coconut Rubio down in Florida. You know-


BEHAR: What’s his name? I don’t know him. Rubio?


DEUTSCH: Marco Rubio. He’s running against Charlie Crist, who I think has done a great job. And he is the new great, you now, hope down there.


BEHAR: So, basically, these people, the tea partiers are basically angry with the right and the left for the same reason, that there’s fiscal irresponsibility?


DEUTSCH: No, they’re angry- they’re basically- their argument is- and I think there’s a lot of racism underneath it- is- “He, they, are taking your civil liberties away. They’re stomping on the Constitution. They’re telling us how many bullets we can have in our guns.”

I'll chime in here - I think it's racist - although I haven't seen many on the right condemn some of the racist crap that's been spouted on here about Obama.

Don't worry, MSNBC won't stand for that! He's not supposed to do that until he's running against a democrat.

No, I just thought the topic was there for a reason.


I can't believe there are people out there that actually think that the "Star Wars" prequels were better than the original three?


And what about that new "Star Trek" movie? Did they take the franchise in the right direction?

Just another example of just how "accepting" and racist liberals really are.

Sorry, but one ill-conceived sign won't distract from the blatant racism of the left.
