McEnany: Stop demonizing Americans as racist
The White House pushed back against “cancel culture” and divisive rhetoric today during Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing, noting that the rush to judgment over racial issues in the country has often been premature.
During the press briefing, the White House press corps obsessed over a tweet made by the president that condemned the rush to judgment regarding the allegations of a hate crime towards driver Bubba Wallace and the NASCAR ban on the Confederate flag.
“In aggregate,” McEnany said of the president’s tweet, “what he was pointing out was this rush to judgement, to immediately say that there was a hate crime as happened in [Bubba Wallace’s] case, as happened with Jussie Smollett, as happened with the Covington Catholic boys, in the aggregate those actions made it seem like NASCAR men and women are racist individuals.”
The president hoped to point out that most Americans are not racist; rather, that they are good, hard-working people who should no longer suffer from a rush to judgment about racism.
The country has been roiled by an ongoing movement by radicals that seek to take advantage of racial issues to hammer ordinary Americans over issues of race over and above the issue of police brutality, which seems to have reached a consensus.
The media has been anxious to shut down anyone who offers the view of America, and generally the American people, as anything other than incorrigible racists, especially Trump supporters.
The president called on Bubba Wallace to publicly say there was no hate crime committed in the case.
“Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?” the president tweeted.
“That & Flag decision has caused lowest ratings EVER!” he continued.
The media, like a broken record, continued to ask McEnany the same questions about the tweet, suggesting that Trump ought to be praising NASCAR for banning the Confederate flag.
“The President takes great offense when Americans, as a knee jerk reaction, are summed up as racists,” McEnany said.
The press secretary pointed out that, in fact, the country has been confronted with a vast cancel culture which has seen mobs tear down statues of Gandhi, George Washington, Lincoln and other figures, including notable abolitionists who worked tirelessly against slavery in the U.S.
“It’s really quite appalling what we’ve seen across the county. The president wants no part in cancel culture… He stands against the demonization of Americans and he stands firmly on the side of preserving our history.”
