While analyzing a Fox News clip in which a pundit claimed black people are leaving the Democratic Party as it acquiesces to “illegal aliens,” a former Republican Party official issued a scathing mockery of the right’s favorite network during a panel discussion on MSNBC.
The clip showed Chris Salcedo, right-wing radio host director of the Conservative Hispanic Society, claiming Democrats have “been so good at promoting abortion inside of the black community” and “curtailing the population in the black community” that African Americans are “no longer a growing demographic in this country”
“The Democrats see their future of importing illegal aliens from all over the world into this country and those in the black community here in the United States are witnessing the Democrat Party [sic] chucking them overboard,” the conservative Latino said.
Michael Steele, the former chairman of the RNC, couldn’t contain his laughter after host Katy Tur rolled the Fox News clip.
“Michael, what’s going on at Fox News?” Tur asked Steele, who responded that he has “no idea.”
“Look, this is the level of crazy that we are in right now,” he said. “We are in a reality TV space. Every moment of the day is another episode of someone coming out speaking from a part of their body that the sun never reaches, and I think that’s important for us to give context to this and understand that this is gibberish.”
The former RNC chairman said that there is a demographic shift approaching, but not in the way Salcedo claimed.
“2043 is the turning point, I predict it will probably be a little bit earlier where you have a black and Hispanic, black and brown United States,” Steele said. “There are a lot of white folks inside and outside my party, inside and outside the Democratic Party, Americans who are not happy about that prospect.”
Rants like Salcedo’s, he concluded, are “the kind of crazy you get when people aren’t happy.”
