What is it with the clown on ‘The View’? They’re obsessed with race and any person of color that has conservative views are instantly being ‘used’ or just a ‘token’ in the mix. It’s sad to say but it seems like the left generously believes that black and brown conservative voters are mindless tools and not simply representing their own core values. That is just so bigoted, to me.
South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham tackled this insane narrative and blasted the left for trying to turn politics into a white-and-black issue: While enforcing Georgia candidate Hershel Walker, Graham snapped back:
“They’re beating all of our guys up, but what is it about this guy? He changes the entire narrative of the left. We’re a party of racists, Sean. Me and you are racists. The Republican Party is racist. Well, what happens when the Republican Party elects and nominates Herschel Walker, an African American, black Heisman trophy winner, right? Olympian. It destroys the whole narrative.”
Host Whoopi Goldberg sneered at the camera as she proceeded to twist Graham’s comments. “So here’s the thing you need to know, Lindsey. Just because we see a black person does not mean we do monkey see, monkey do,” she declared.
She then went into a full-blown meltdown and snapped at how “insulting” it was, ironically while ignoring how insulting it was of her to make black and brown Republican voters out to be tools:
“And I’m sure that you don’t know how insulting that is, but let us just say to you, don’t ever say that again because you look ignorant as hell. Don’t do that.
I mean, you know, it doesn’t work that way. It may work that way for you because we know what you are doing. Okay? We know what you are up to, but we don’t just go get people because they look the right way. We actually have to find the people that can actually do the damn job. That’s what we want.
The idea that Democrats don’t pick people based on race is ridiculous since Joe Biden admitted race was the major factor in picking Kamala Harris to be his running mate. He also made it very clear – to the excitement of The View – that he nominated Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson because of her skin color.”
Funny that she picked THAT argument considering that Biden’s whole platform has been to push scholarships and employment based on race instead of qualifications, but okay.
Hostin immediately doubled down on the insult and falsely claimed that Walker was “picked” to run because of the color of his skin.
“I think the sad thing about this is, you know, Herschel Walker is woefully underqualified for this job and the only reason he was chosen … is because Raphael Warnock, the senator in Georgia is black. And they wanted someone who was black to confront him, to oppose him,” she bloviated.
I feel like these liberals don’t hear themselves or understand how racism works or that they believe that somehow racism is just the guy shouting racial slurs. Is that racist? Yes. Is it racist to degrade a person based on the color of their skin and make it out like their incapable of making decisions because of their race? Also, Yes.
