An angry white mob surrounded and attacked an African American woman yesterday, and no… this isn't a headline from the 1960's. Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were having breakfast in Philly when a group of 20 to 30 people began harassing them with bullhorns and throwing liquid at them. If there's a museum of the absurd, this attack should be one of its main exhibits. They were actually screaming into bullhorns, directly at Candace Owens - an African American - "Eff White supremacy."
So what exactly do these radical leftists have a problem with here? Is it that Candace is a woman or that she's black? Maybe it's because she had the gall to eat in one of your restaurants. Since when did the far left become supporters of Jim Crow? I'd love for one of their spokesmen to call into the show today and clarify, because the optics here don't look too great.
But should we really be surprised here? There's one thing that the true far right and the radical left have in common. They're both equally racist. If you're in ANTIFA, maybe someone like Sarah Jeong or any social justice warrior screaming about White America… you need to come to a conclusion that might be painful to you: You're a racist. You are everything you claim to despise. You're blaming all your grievances and problems on an entire race of people. I don't care if you're in the minority or majority. If you judge people by their racial classification and not the content of their character, you are a racist.
I know critical thinking is hard for these people, but it kind of boggles the mind how they've never seen the similarities between their movement and the people they claim to be fighting. If you do a rundown of what the far right and the far left have in common, it almost sounds as if they should get along. They're both equally racist, they both want to kill free speech, they both believe in collectivism, a strong central government and socialized health care. I mean, this kind of sounds like a demented match made in a very demented heaven.
If you want this to get worse, just keep doing what you're doing.
Jim Acosta said he felt threatened by the crowd at a Trump rally recently. He said it was all President Trump's fault. I wonder if he'll have a comment on what happened to Charlie and Candace? Maybe CNN will cover this, and the violent leftist black bloc mob that threw explosives at Berkeley police on Sunday? Maybe they'll show the video of a masked ANTIFA member smashing the windows of a US Marine Corps recruiting office which also happened on Sunday. Go ahead, go to CNN.com right now and check. I'll save you the trouble… neither story is there.
And you wonder why people are pissed? You wonder why groups like Patriot Prayer are springing up to go fight these guys? Newsflash to the media. If you want this to get worse, just keep doing what you're doing. Keep ignoring half the country. Continue not listening to their worries and fears. If a few people giving you the finger and chanting "CNN SUCKS" gets you scared, I fear you haven't seen anything yet.
