Racism

Tucker Carlson recently pointed out the hypocrisy surrounding mainstream media’s coverage of the Justin Trudeau blackface scandal by comparing the way CNN’s Don Lemon handled the matter.

On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News Tucker spent no time singling out CNN’s Don Lemon in a clip where it showed how the liberal Lemon host covered Trudeau’s apology by only redirecting the issue as a way to attack President Trump, Tucker even brought up an older clip from Oct 2018 of Don Lemon talking about the Kelly controversy.

“Megyn is 47 years old, she’s our age. There has never been a time in her 47 years that blackface has been acceptable… I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff. I don’t know, I’m not there but I would imagine there is not a lot,” “This is what people of the larger culture don’t understand about racism and about privilege.”

– Don Lemon

Now compare this to what Lemon said about the Prime Minister…

“He says he didn’t think it was racist at the time, now he knows better,”

“Think about it however you want to think about it. When someone apologizes, wow, we don’t often see that here. Especially a world leader who’s saying, ‘I should have known better and I’m sorry.’”

– Don Lemon

Double Standards Much?

Recently unless you have had your internet and TV turned off you would have seen that it was revealed that the Canadian prime minister was caught up in his own “blackface” scandal of which he attempted to apologize during a news conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though Tucker Carlson (and nor did most of the right on the internet) buy this apology. As its more under the impression that Trudeau didn’t actually take responsibility but rather “transferred it” by blaming privilege.

 “He’s moving responsibility for what he did from himself to the rest of us… it’s not a confession, it’s a justification and the only people dumb enough to buy it are the news media, of course. The dumbest people in the world,”

“Or could it be that because Justin Trudeau is a powerful leader on the left, he gets a pass no matter what he does? I think you know the answer,”

“What a difference a year makes… Megyn Kelly never wore blackface, she wouldn’t do that. She’s not Justin Trudeau,”

“She just made the mistake of not seeming quite offended enough in a TV segment about certain Halloween costumes.”

– Tucker Carlson

Remember that former Fox News host Megyn Kelly was FIRED from NBC News for simply suggesting blackface could sometimes be OK when used for a costume.

So the Real Question is: Should Trudeau be Fired too?

Check (Privilege) Please!

James Comey bruised by inspector general’s ‘damning’ report — but he should prepare for worse, critics warn

The reputation of James Comey took a hit Thursday with the release of a scathing inspector general’s report on his handling of memos about contacts with President Trump. However, the fired former FBI director should be wary of what Connecticut federal prosecutor John Durham may find in his probe into the origins of the Russia See More investigation, critics warn. “Obviously, today was a bad day for James Comey,” said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C. and chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus, on “Hannity.” He added it was unbelievable that Comey was nonetheless going on Twitter, seeking apologies from his detractors.

Republicans on Capitol Hill warned the inspector general’s report could be only the start of a series of blows to the reputations of key law enforcement figures. The inspector general report said Comey violated bureau policies by drafting, leaking and retaining memos documenting private discussions with President Trump. The Justice Department’s official watchdog concluded that the memos Comey kept were, in fact, “official FBI records,” and said he set a “dangerous example” with his actions.

Video from 2005 raid on Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion showed nude images of young women

Video of a 2005 police raid of Jeffrey Epstein’s Palm Beach, Fla., mansion reveals a home partially decorated with illicit photos and imagery of young women. Inside the home, the video shows a wall covered in artsy nude photos of men and women, a painting of a nude woman lying on her back and a photo of a naked woman – reportedly Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell – lying on a sandy beach. Police also discovered a green massage table leaning against a wall under framed photos of Epstein, who was accused of molesting dozens of girls at the mansion.
By 2006, Palm Beach investigators had interviewed more than 30 young women – some of whom were minors at the time of the alleged crimes. In the end, prosecutors and Epstein’s lawyers negotiated a then-secret plea deal which led Epstein to serve just 13 months in jail under work-release privileges, allowing him to visit his office six days a week.

Cadbury ridiculed over new chocolate bar meant to promote diversity

The British confectionery giant Cadbury faced backlash on social media for a new candy bar introduced in India that features four types of chocolate — dark, blended, milk and white — to promote diversity. “This is as absurd as Kendall Jenner fighting police brutality with a Pepsi,” tweeted legal analyst Imani Gandy. “Congratulations to Cadbury for solving racism,” wrote restaurant critic Tejal Rao. Cadbury rolled out the multi-flavored chocolate bars Aug. 15 — teaming up with the global advertising agency Ogilvy — to celebrate India’s Independence Day. – Reported by the New York Post
