July 9, 2015: WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest began today’s presser with a sweeping denunciation of Republicans as RAAAAAAACISTS. Just listen to the first minute of this and keep in mind this is the WHITE HOUSE.
Donald Trump is the individual Earnest cites as the “leading presidential candidate” (huh?) who is a known race-baiter. I googled “Donald Trump race baiter” and got a bunch of hits, all in left-wing rags like HuffPo. The actual quotes that are slammed as “racist” appear to be terrible, horrible, no-good statements of facts about black crime rates and the like. OMG … those RAAAACIST facts! And those RAAACISTS who say them out loud!
Rep. Steve Scalise is the individual Earnest quotes as having said he was “like David Duke without the baggage.” By this, he meant that he supported the same policy ideas as David Duke, but that he didn’t have the same negative feelings about minorities as the former Ku Klux Klan leader. But Josh … really! Don’t let a little thing like CONTEXT get in the way of your slandering the entire GOP … cuz, you know, TOLERANCE.
