Whoa: CNN, WaPo Blasts Kamala Harris For Not Being 'Woke' Enough- Are They Nuts?
Good lord, if anything it is news segments like these that just proves there is nothing anyone can do to please the unhinged left. CNN's 'New Day' show closed out with a long rant about how their beloved vice president, Kamala Harris, isn't "woke" enough. Co-host Brianna Keiler brought on race-baiting editor from the Washington Post, Karen Attiah, to criticize Harris for denying that America has a race problem.
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott released a video destroying the liberal narrative that America is inherently racist and denouncing the existence of systematic racism. Since then, Democrats and liberal media outlets have lost their minds and overexerted themselves trying to destroy Scott and all who agree with him.
Harris must have really angered the powers that be. Instead of referring to her as the first biracial black vice president, now Attiah stated that Harris only 'identifies as black'.
Attiah began, "So Kamala Harris, ever since she really joined the presidential race, has obviously because of her -- both because of her experience and because of her identity as a biracial, black-identifying woman, she's, you know, become a symbol for so much, including for what many would think is-is racial progress in this county." The editor added, "So she's had and has to walk this tight rope on race. you saw what happened with uh President Obama and often the backlash that would come when he would speak very openly about his black identity."
She continued, "what was really uh disappointing, I think, to many people, to agree with Tim Scott and look at this country and say it's not a racist country despite the fact that we've been living, particularly for the last year, living with the realities of systemic racism beamed into our uh televisions, into our social media with police brutality, with the rise of an Asian um American -- attacks on Asian-Americans. She could have really just said, look, we have to deal with the history of racism and its present existence and that would have been done, but the denialism is basically trying to say that, yeah, you know, this country has all the hallmarks of being a racist country, it has all the symptoms, it has all the causes, it has all the history, it's literally right in our faces but it's not that."
Keilar agreed, adding that both VP Harris and Sen. Scott have shared their personal experiences with racism and question how either of them can deny that the country is racist. I think the point that the left seems to be intentionally missing is that racism exists on an individual basis. It's not as deep-seated or as widespread as the media would have you believe. Racism and cultural biases exist around the world. America happens to be one of the few nations that aggressively works to punish those guilty of hate crimes.
Attiah continued to express her disappointment in Harris's lack of 'wokeness' adding that the vice president "walks a tightrope" around her white colleagues. Adding that "it's just kind of exhausting to have to watch her kind of walk both sides on this."
I find it interesting that Harris went from being this proud symbol of racial progress to just someone who 'identifies as black' as soon as she says something the left disagrees with. I also have to say that these two worked fairly hard to twist this narrative around to then discredits Harris's own words by claiming she was somehow intimidated into siding with the Republican senator.
The woke hive really has zero-tolerance for individual thoughts.
