The New York Times‘ Peter Baker, who earned widespread recognition for his reporting on “Russia collusion,” wrote a “news analysis” article on Sunday evening titled: “More Than Ever, Trump Casts Himself as the Defender of White America.”
Baker waved aside Trump’s appeals to black voters, and a policy record that includes criminal justice reform, Opportunity Zones, funding for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and record-low black unemployment and poverty. Breitbart
We have witnessed as Black Lives Matter and Antifa have exploded all over our nation and politicians pouring fuel on the fires about racism.
Mainstream media has been no different, they have been just as guilty at fueling the racial hate and this is just the beginning.
Breitbart continued, “Not in generations has a sitting president so overtly declared himself the candidate of white America,” Baker wrote.
He declined to provide an “overt” example, however, settling instead for a Trump retweet of criticism of Critical Race Theory.
While he initially voiced concern over the killing of George Floyd under the knee of a white police officer in Minneapolis this spring, which touched off nationwide protests, he has focused since then almost entirely on defending the police and condemning demonstrations during which there have been outbreaks of looting and violence.
He has described American cities as hotbeds of chaos, played to “suburban housewives” he casts as fearful of low-income people moving into their neighborhoods, sought to block a move — backed by the Pentagon and Republican lawmakers — to rename Army bases named for Confederate generals, criticized NASCAR for banning the Confederate flag, called Black Lives Matters a “symbol of hate” and vowed to strip funding from cities that do not take what he deems tough enough action against protesters.
Until “We The People” unite and stand together, we will continue to suffer that which we tolerate.
