You are a black man. You are not allow to say such things! [says the progressives]
A CNN broadcast Saturday cut off an African-American Trump supporter in the middle of answering a question about “white guilt” posed by a reporter.
“I [have seen] one shirt that said ‘no white guilt,’ things like that. I mean, there have been some messages that might not be that open to folks from diverse perspectives. What would your message be to folks like that?”
Trump supporter Diante Johnson answered, “When it comes to ‘no white guilt,’ I–I agree with that, I actually just made a post about it on my page and a video about it…There are some White Americans that feel guilty for what their ancestors did, you know, this and that, and the thing about it is, they shouldn’t have to feel guilty, this is America…” The video was then cut off.
The reporter continued, “Certainly, an interesting perspective there from an African-American who supports Donald Trump and is here today.”
The CNN video comes from coverage of a rally held on the National Mall Saturday.
Johnson is president of the Black Conservative Federation.
Oops. That wasn’t supposed to be made public.
When Sen. Bernie Sanders invited a Canadian doctor onto his podcast to help him pitch his new “Medicare for All” scheme, he wanted her to give Americans a preview of what they might expect under single-payer health care.
And, as it turns out, she did — just perhaps not the way that Sanders was expecting her to.
Dr. Danielle Martin, an associate professor at the University of Toronto and vice president medical affairs and health system solutions at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, admitted to long wait times and other fun problems with the Canadian system during her appearance on “The Bernie Sanders Show” on Thursday.
“If I have a patient who’s got migraines and I need advice about how to manage it, they might wait several months to see a neurologist for a non-urgent problem like that,” Martin said. “Or non-urgent surgeries, the classic example being a hip or a knee replacement.”
“So how long will it take me in the average?” Sanders asked.
“It depends on where you are in the country. Sometimes it’s a few months, sometimes it’s a year. In some places, it’s sometimes it’s been even longer than that, that people wait for a hip or a knee replacement. And I think that is totally unacceptable. I don’t think that we should stand for it in our system. I think that there’s no reason why people should have to wait.”
I’m not saying his comment wasn’t crass. But her hypocrisy is clearly revealed here.
She should know. Born in Russia in 1905, she witnessed first hand the February Revolution and October Revolution of 1917 and the takeover by Lenin. This was of no mere academic interest for Rand.
