A CNN reporter got the scolding of his life after confronting a black Donald Trump supporter outside the Republican National Convention.The journalist received his verbal smackdown after asking the gentleman a specific, racially charged question.
The man’s response will make you cheer.
The Trump supporter, identified as Kenneth, expressed his opposition to Black Lives Matter and the Clintons before the reporter shifted the focus, causing the interview to go off the rails.“What do you think of the fact that the white supremacists support Trump?” the reporter asked.
“It doesn’t matter. That’s the right of free speech. I’m sick of this race and divide. And CNN is perfect at doing that,” Kenneth responded. “It’s always divide and conquer. People have the right to choose who they want.” What the hell does that have to do with Donald Trump? He’s not a racist! I’m sick of that!”
He continued: “It’s a scam! And I know it’s not going to get on CNN. We’re sick of you, media!”At that point, conservative reporter Andrew Marcus turned the questions around on the man identified as a CNN reporter, asking him if his questions were “fair” and whether Black Panthers support Obama.
Kenneth pretty much hit the nail on the head and his critique of the mainstream media, particularly CNN, could not be more accurate.
As we’ve all seen over the last few years with the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent string of cop murders, the lamestream media loves to push a racially divisive narrative because doing so increases ratings and allows them to make a lot of cash through advertising revenues, while also helping set up Democrats running for office to be the new generation of civil rights leaders.
Networks line their pockets, politicians retain their power.
There is also this stigma in the media that African-Americans can’t be conservatives or Republicans, or heaven forbid, a Donald Trump supporter. These individuals who claim to be about ending racism and inequality have created a stereotype that says all blacks must be Democrats.
Obviously that isn’t the case, which is precisely the point Kenneth here was trying to make.
