Frequent Fox guest: Whites might shoot up more black churches if Obama keeps calling them racist

Published

on

A black conservative warned black Americans that more white terrorists may be encouraged to take up arms against them after the Charleston massacre – if President Barack Obama continues to say racism is an ongoing problem.

Jesse Lee Peterson, a frequent Fox News guest, appeared Thursday on Steve Malzberg’s Newsmax TV program to discuss the fatal shootings of nine black worshipers by an apparent white supremacist at a historic South Carolina church, reported Right Wing Watch.

The conservative pundit, who recently told Sean Hannity that Baltimore residents had overreacted to the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody, insisted that white racism against blacks no longer existed.

“(Obama) implied that racism is still an issue in America today for black people from white folks, when it’s absolutely not true,” Peterson said. “You have the Department of Justice and others calling it a hate crime even before they knew — before the dust settled, they called it a hate crime, which is encouraging or verifying for a lot of angry black people that racism is a problem.”

He urged angry white people to start lashing out against black critics by reciting racist tropes.

“They need to speak out to the country, to black Americans, and tell them, ‘I am not a racist, I am not your problem — you need to take care of your own life, you need to get married, raise your own children, get away from the government taking care of you, (and) drop your anger so you can see that I am not your problem,’” said Peterson, summing up a month’s worth of Fox News programming in a matter of seconds.

He said a “lack of moral character,” not racism, was to blame for racial disparities in the U.S. – but he said white Americans were victims of a racist double standard that would eventually lead to even more violence against blacks.

“White people are feeling fear,” Peterson said. “If they should speak up, they’re called racists, and they are feeling guilt because they feel a sense of responsibility for what’s going on when they really have nothing to do with it

“They have all this anger that’s starting to build up inside of them, and I am very concerned,” Peterson continued. “I’ve been concerned for a long time that if they don’t open up and express themselves and say, ‘No,’ when they’re called racists, we’re going to see more killing. I want to be wrong, but we are going to see – especially young white men and women – we’re going to see more of them carrying out acts like the one we just saw in South Carolina.”

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera attacks former White House press secretary on Twitter as ‘old douche’

Published

on

In a bizarre moment, Sunday evening politics turned into a war of wards in President Donald Trump's Twitter comments.

Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera responded to former press secretary Joe Lockhart, who had replied to one of the tweets Trump retweeted from Rivera.

"Gloom settling on Democrats as they realize they’ve taken their best kill shot & missed. Dems in despair. Republicans United. @realDonaldTrump survives & #Impeachment all over but the shouting," said Rivera, hopefully not literally saying that Democrats wanted to shoot or kill the president.

Lockhart responded to the comment by mocking the Fox News host, saying that he was only making the comment to help get his contract renewed.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of the handful of members of Congress who have served as managers for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. He has not only navigated the past week of the trial, but he conducted the first major hearing.

After the New York Times revealed key facts from former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book, Schiff said that it was clear the information Bolton has is why Trump blocked him from testifying.

“I think you have to for the sake of the office,” Trump told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham when she asked if he would block Bolton.
