Tamera Mowry-Housley tweets about debate interruptions; racists mock her interracial marriage to Fox journo

Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley tweeted this earlier tonight:

Note that she made no mention of her political preferences. Absolutely none.  Yet, her innocuous tweet and retweet caused a firestorm from some unhinged Obama supporters who attacked Mowry-Housley as a sellout to her race and a Romney shill.

Mowry-Housley’s husband, Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, quickly leapt to her defense — which provoked yet more race-baiting and partisan sniping from critics of the couple (who are expecting their first child later this month).

Housley let loose:

Mowery-Housley appreciated her hubby’s outspoken defense:

And so did many fans of the couple who judge them by the content of their character and depth of their love, not their skin color:

Parting wisdom from Mowry-Housley:

Amen, sister!

    Liberals of all colors just don’t like white people unless they’re completely dishonest and unethical atheists like they are and race, class and gender must supercede truth, honor, patriotism, duty and the willful pursuit of happiness.

        By the very definition of the word, anybody can be racist. This is why I don’t like the term: reverse racist. A racist is a racist and we should call them out in our society.

      I am a registered Republican who is also an Atheist, non-believer, etc., whatever term you care to put on it. Can’t stand Obama. Not because he’s Black, but because he’s the wrong Black. I have never heard so many racist bastards come out of the woodwork.

      • michael s

        What do you mean when you post he’s the wrong black?

        • TexSizzle

          I can’t speak for Elwood Ballard, but Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, and Walter Williams are all infinitely preferable to Mr. Obama, in my opinion.

  • Renny

    Is this the hope and change Obama promised? Things worse between the races? More division and hate. I guess that’s a change, but no hope.

    • michael s

      I suppose the white Republicans who decided the day president Obama was elected that they would conspire to make him a 1 term president weren’t being divisive?

      • John (it true me am)

        Because everyone didn’t say the same thing about EVERY PRESIDENT EVER. Seriously, name me one example where the opposing party said “Let’s make sure we get the other guy in office for a few more terms!”

          if Romney wins i guarantee a group of black democrats will not on the night he is sworn in, conspire against him . i guarantee that black politicians won’t be obstructive,won’t ask for his birth certificate, his vp can attack OWS and they won’t bother romney etc.

    Adam Housley has always been one of my favorites on Fox. He is one of the first people I followed on Twitter. I’m so sorry this happened. Good for him for standing up for his wife. God bless, Adam and Tamera.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    I can’t believe how backwards people are being with racism and all that. Who cares who she married. Who cares who she votes for. She mentioned NONE of that, but wrote about how rude Biden was! As long as people are nice and respectful, I’ve no problem with what they look like or their political or religious leanings. Mrs. Mowry-Housley believes that and her husband believes that. Those people who tweeted negatively should be like that too. This is 2012 for fudge’s sake people! This is not the 1700s, 1800s, or early 1900s! Stop separating us because of physical attributes! Just stop! It’s asinine. You’re halting progression in your Regressive attitude!

    • http://www.facebook.com/rodneycb Rodney Bryant

      Do they know that practically every lib journalist rebuked Biden’s behavior as well? Will they call them haters and racists as well, now? I doubt it.

  • Justin Levesque

    Kudos to both of you! Good for you Tamera, for not responding to hate with hate. Good for you Adam, for defending your wife, and calling these racists out! Screw ’em all.

  • John (it true me am)

    Sooo. Adam Housley is now my role model.
    You know they didn’t expect him to bite back.
    Also love the racism versus mixed race marriage when their messiah is Obama…

    • MissQuinn82

      You’re totally right. I don’t think they’d expect Adam Housley to go all ‘Taken’ on those jokers. But he did, and it was glorious, glorious win.

      i love the mowry sisters. theyre just adorable. and i love how adam came to his wife’s defense. its what a real man (of any color) should do!

    • http://twitter.com/tami_rena Tami

      Exactly, John!! Sadly, this isn’t the first time he’s had to let some folks on Twitter have it. He usually ignores the ignorance, but you don’t mess with a man’s wife!!

      • http://www.irregulars.us/ towerclimber37

        absolutely well said.

      • Eva Foster

        Tami, that is an awesome reply!!

        Wait till Jesus returns for HIS bride 😉

    • michael s

      so now its racism. however when its Pres & First Lady Obama Atty Gen Holder its the race card.

      • John (it true me am)

        The race card is putting race into something where it isn’t a factor simply because someone’s race is “x” or “y”. Racism is being bigoted against someone because of racial factors. How is the difference not obvious?

        You cite on one hand a group of people who inject race into non racial issues, that is the race card. (Ex: Obama pushes socialism. Person reacts because they don’t like socialism. Obama or surrogates try to claim the issue is Obama is black not that the policy is socialist–while in truth even if he were white people would still react the same way to the policy. This is the race card in a nutshell.)

        In this case we have people making hateful remarks directed at a couple SPECIFICALLY AIMED at it being a mixed race marriage. There is no other issue at play with someone pulling a racial bait and switch, it is derision based solely on race and nothing else. (Ex: Someone saying they disagree with Tamara’s position and then people claiming it were her race would be the race card. Someone making a comment specifically ABOUT race, as they are, is racism.)

        If you can’t see the difference I feel sorry for you.

    Well the way she votes or her husband vote is a private matter as it is for anyone who can legally vote. Last I checked in the USA, everyone is still allowed to make observations on debates, and from the little I saw of it ( Biden has always disgusted me with his arrogance and insider attitude ) he was very disrespectful and trying to win the debate by being more clever in his insults. You don’t have to be a free thinker ( R ) or a zombie ( D ) to realize that. For all those with the racist comments, look up the definition of shame maybe they can see their picture as a visual example.

        That doesn’t mean it can’t be dangerous and poisonous. Anybody hear about flash mobs lately? They were big in the news for a while and then kinda went off the radar. Even more than the net itself, Twitter has the power to mobilize large groups of people for any reason, good or ill. Now go back and read the thread about everyone promising riots when Romney is elected. Will it really happen? Maybe. Could it happen, the nastiest flash mob of all time, with local gatherings in all the cities across the US? Dang right it could.

    I’m in an interracial marriage as well, and I cringe at the thought of someone throwing racist epithets at her, or trying to label her as a racist because she holds views contrary to a vocal political minority. In either case, she’d leave them bloody on the side of the road when she was done with them. :)

    Blacks who attack other blacks for being/acting/living too white seem very insecure in who they are. They are bitter clingers. I think it stems from some malignant own-race loathing. Maybe if they started treating each other with respect, they could understand Dr. King’s dream.

      Dont bring up Dr King to us as black people. Whites falsely call Him a Communist then and now not us. A white man killed him with a gun when he spoke of being non violent not us.

      • John (it true me am)

        Wait, what? So a white guy isn’t allowed to respect MLK now? What kind of twisted logic is that?
        Talk about generalization. A white guy shot Kennedy and Lincoln too, are all white people collectively responsible for those as well? Are you to be held responsible for the misdeeds of every black person? That is such a flawed line of reasoning it is unbelievable.

      • grais

        I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to communicate to me. In the first place, you DO NOT know the color of my skin.
        I’ve certainly never called Dr. King A communist. Quite the contrary, he seemed like a conservative. That a white man killed him is irrelevant to this topic.
        Do you even know that his dream was for a day when people would be judged by the Content of their Character and NOT BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN? Do you realize how your post & those tweets mocking Tamera Mowrey completely ignores his dream? You make a mockery of Dr. King and what he stood for and what he dreamed of. You should be ashamed of yourself for that. HE would be ashamed of you for that.
        btw, I’ll bring up Dr. King or anyone else–to Anyone–at Anytime of MY choosing. You have no power to dictate whom or To whom I “bring up” anything.

          AMEN!!! As I posted here earlier about a yr. back I encountered a young darker skinned father & his son on a walking trail near a MLK Memorial which I was reading/photographing and he knew NOTHING about MLK!
