Good gosh, the dim bulbs at the Karl Marx Network, the barely viewed MSNBC, have just jumped the shark so far that they’re even pulling the race card against their Dear Leader Obama.
It’s simply nothing short of mind-boggling.[banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Alex Wagner, host of NOW with Alex Wagner, apparently believes, as a proud member of the anti-free speech, politically-correct word police, that the word “thug” should be erased from the English language, that it’s somehow offensive, if not racist, to call people who burn down buildings, loot and pillage businesses, or walk down the street playing the knock-out game, the word “thug.”
On her ratings starved show on Wednesday, Wagner points out that Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who called rioters and looters “thugs,” apologized for using the word because she’s all black, but Obama, who also used the word, is “doubling-down” on the word, insinuating that it must be the racist 50% white blood from his white mother that is causing his stubborn inner racism.
“Brittney, you bring up this point in your writing today that it [using the word “thug”] is as much a black-white issue as much as it’s a black-black issue. I mean, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is a black woman. Barack Obama is half-black, half-white, but is identified as a black president and they’re using the word thug. Now, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has since apologized, but the president seems, if we’re to believe the White House press secretary, defiantly sort of doubling down on this is how I describe looters and people who perpetrate violence. So what is that conversation in the black community?”
