CNN Idiots Labeled Outraged Americans Racists and Bigots Due to Biden's Trade With Russia
CNN contributors S.E. Cupp and James Carville suggested that racism was to blame for Republicans criticizing President Joe Biden's prisoner exchange agreement with Russia, which resulted in the release of WNBA player Brittney Griner on Saturday afternoon, it was yet another example of the liberal media's obsession with race and identity.
The group went on to claim that anyone who oppose the Griner transaction are racists and bigots. According to Cupp's view, the House Republican Party's leader, the ostensibly libertarian S.E. Kevin McCarthy, rejected the deal because Griner is a "Black lesbian," whilst Carville argued it was because she is "not White" and "not heterosexual."
Nobody cares about Griner's skin color or who she wants to date.
After host Jim Acosta showed a clip of McCarthy criticizing the plan that resulted in the release of a high-value Russian prisoner known as the "merchant of death," Carville began his response: "So, Jim, I'm going to say something controversial, but I'm going to preface it with something true."
After acknowledging that a reasonable argument can be made against doing such prisoner exchanges because of the cost, he still accused Republicans of the worst motives as he continued: "Does anyone in their right mind think that if Brittney was a blind Chi Omega from SMU that the reaction would have been the same? Of course not."
A bit later, he added: "...a lot of this like a lot of things in America are driven by the fact that this young person is not White and is not straight. And if you don't believe that, you're not in tune with American politics. I'm sorry, this is something that just has to be said."
As Acosta followed up, he complained about the move being criticized by Republicans: "S.E., what do you think? Because, I mean, you know, it was quick -- it was pretty quick the way, you know, some on the right really pounced on this. Shouldn't folks just be happy that Brittney Griner is home?"
Cupp blamed both racism and homophobia and even suggested that Republicans are anti-American. The CNN Republican began her commentary: "It's -- and it's been worse over at Fox News and NewsMax, you know, two places that really profess to love this country -- and it sure didn't sound like it if you listened to a lot of them really trashing the homecoming of an American citizen."
She then added:
"Listen, as James says, there are reasons to be critical of this deal -- it was imperfect. But there's no reason not to celebrate Brittney Griner coming home unless -- I don't know -- you're mad that she's a Black lesbian or maybe unless because Joe Biden was instrumental in her release and he's a Democrat, and so you don't want to give him any credit. Or unless it's perhaps because you don't love this country as much as you say you do, and as much as you pretend to, and instead you'd rather side with our enemy, Russia and Putin."
Stupid, right? Leave it to the media nuts to make a bum deal about race while a US marine hangs in the lurch. It's great that Griner is back, she's an America before she is anything else—Including an un-American. The issue is Biden traded a notorious Russian arms dealer while leaving a Marine in a Russian prison.
