Conservative broadcaster ‘whitesplains’ to caller the media has turned him into an ‘angry black man’

Published

on

A black listener, calling into a conservative Christian radio show, received a condescending lecture from the white female host who told him that the media was to blame for turning him into an “angry black man.”

Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs for the American Family Association and host of a daily radio program, began her program by defending comments made by Fox’s Sean Hannity, who said race relations in the U.S. have eroded under President Obama.

In audio captured by  Right Wing Watch, a caller identifying himself as Charles took issue with the comments made by Rios and Hannity, pointing out increased violence against the black community, while drawing attention to the recent acquittal of a Cleveland cop in the 2012 shooting on an unarmed black couple.

“Unfortunately, sisters and brothers like yourselves and others just don’t get it as it pertains to basically to black America and the history of black America with regards to America,” Charles told Rios. “I get so discouraged when I hear you guys talk about the current situation with policing and black America.”
Rios interrupted Charles, telling him that she didn’t believe all the “facts” were in on the shooting that took place three years ago and had already gone to trial. She went on to say that he was being  duped  by “people who want to whip the black community into a frenzy by misrepresenting facts.”
“I know how this works. Maybe you don’t. But I tell you there are people that benefit from twisting the story ever so slightly to get you whipped into a rage,” Rios  explained before adding, “Look, ABC doesn’t care about giving you the whole story, neither does CBS, because they want you to be an angry black man. Do you understand that?”

These 7 details from the damning Sharpiegate report show it was a dark omen of Trump’s destructive potential

Published

on

While it was dismissed by some as an overhyped media obsession, the presidential scandal that has come to be known as "Sharpiegate" was, in fact, an early warning sign of the truly catastrophic potential of Donald Trump.

The story arose out of Hurricane Dorian, which began its deliberate march up toward the East Coast of the United States in late August and early September of 2019. It ravaged the Bahamas, and officials feared the damage it could inflict stateside. But then came a Trump tweet on Sept. 1, and later comments to reporters, in which he warned that Alabama was in the storm's path. He said it was among the states "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated."

"The data, which for the first time breaks down the number of people in the hospital with coronavirus, was promised by the state two weeks ago," the report explained.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asks why Bill Barr is trying to ‘erase Robert Mueller’s investigation’ before November

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace returned to television Friday night to address what she called outright corruption in the Trump White House after another example of the president trying to escape the consequences of the law.

Wallace began by calling Attorney General William Barr nothing more than Trump's "bouncer."

"He has been intellectually overestimated from day one. He is not a mastermind of anything," said Wallace. "He is Donald Trump's body man."

She cited "well-sourced spin" coming from the White House Friday evening, because there were people that she said were "enlisted" with trying to talk Trump out of commuting Roger Stone's sentence. She anticipated that Barr and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may huff and puff about the act, but that they won't quit over it. "And we should remember their names forever. They are all accomplices in the greatest corruption of one of the most sacred powers."
