The news media’s race-baiting and false racist narrative has led to unintended consequences.
In the video below, CNN commentator Angela Rye was shouted down when she suggested removing statues of former presidents who were slave owners.
Angela made the suggestion 2 days after President Donald Trump said the removal of Confederate statues would lead to targeting statues of former presidents who were slave owners.
During an appearance on CNN this week, Angela argued that slaves “weren’t deemed human beings” by George Washington, who ruthlessly pursued a runaway female slave because she escaped without his permission.
When Angela was rudely interrupted by another CNN contributor, she said she drew no distinction between slave owner Washington and non-slave owner Robert E. Lee.
“This country was built upon a very violent past that resulted in death and the raping and the killing of my ancestors. So I’m not going to say that it’s OK for a Robert E. Lee and not a George Washington. We need to call it what is,” she said.
Several high profile black leaders also went off script and called for the removal of sacred monuments to slave owners George Washington and Thomas Jefferson that are not on the approved list.
The Rev. Al Sharpton put out the call on his popular radio show to stop using tax dollars on statues of Washington and Jefferson, but the leftist media mocked and laughed at Sharpton on Thursday.
The news media is uncomfortable with this new narrative because, for all of their race-baiting and false outrage, they do not want to acknowledge their racist past.
As an example of the left’s hypocrisy, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer provided a list of hundreds of confederate statues around the country that he deemed offensive. The list did not include slave owners.
As usual, CNN and other liberal media outlets want to control the narrative and decide for us what we should all be angry about.
