CNN guest Michaela Angela Davis, a self-proclaimed “cultural critic,” called all 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump racist. No exceptions, not even the minorities.
Davis, the rumored daughter of former Black Panther Angela Davis, made the blanket generalization while discussing comedian Roseanne Barr’s firing after she mocked former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett on Twitter.
Like other liberals, Davis immediately blamed President Trump for Roseanne’s tweets, as if he personally tweeted them from his own phone.
“He’s made it more popular to be openly racist,” Davis explained. “Tens of millions of people voted for him after he showed his cards for years.”
CNN host John Berman then asked: “Are you suggesting that all the people who voted for Donald Trump are racist?”
Davis replied, “Yes, yes. They may not be violently racist. Anti-blackness is a strategy that has been the foundation of part of the American Project…There’s so many different levels of racism and how it works itself out.”
Davis added that most people are racist without realizing it.
“Most of the time we are operating in racist structures, so you as an individual may not understand that you are racist, but you are working in a racist structure,” she said. “So that’s how policemen of color can be participatory.”
Amid heavy backlash on Twitter, Davis doubled-down on her defamatory statement calling all 63 million Americans who voted for Trump racist. Never mind that many people who voted for Trump in 2016 previously voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Spin that, Michaela.
“It’s fascinating horrified people are by being called racists but not at all phased by participating in racists activity or being complicit,” she tweeted.

Conservative radio host Wayne Dupree responded by doing a double-take.
“Rachel Dolezal?” he joked. “Man, I just fell out of my seat.”
Nope. This is Michaela Angela Davis who claims ALL Trump supporters are racist (via her interview with CNN today). Man, I just fell out of my seat. White liberals had to steal our Angela Davis too 😂#realtalk #AmericasVoice #TeamWD pic.twitter.com/e95rYb0c3O

Jason Little asked: “‘Anti-blackness strategy’ what the heck has Michaela Angela Davis been smoking? Trump campaigned specifically in inner city and impoverished areas. He told them he’d actually help them and guess what? He did! Have you seen the minority unemployment rates?”

Gary Mele Jr. remarked: “Absolutely sickening. Just as bad as accusing every single person supported Hillary Clinton of being, or being complacent about, a sexual predator.”
Saw the video of Michaela Angela Davis saying that anyone who supports Trump is a racist. Absolutely sickening. Just as bad as accusing every single person supported Hillary Clinton of being, or being complacent about, a sexual predator.

One Twitter user simply wrote: “This. Is. Why. Trump. Won.”
This. Is. Why. Trump. Won.

Michaela Angela Davis’s race-baiting declarations ignore the historically low unemployment rates among African-Americans and Hispanics under President Trump.
Conservative Candace Owen, the director of urban engagement for Turning Point USA, shared a video of young black man proudly declaring “I’m free!” from the Democratic Plantation and the reasons why he emancipated himself.
I rarely get emotional, but this young man waking up to the lies of the Democrats almost brought me to tears.
The media can lie, try to smear, or ignore us—but there is nothing they can do to stop the black revolution that is unfolding.
Thank you God, for this moment. #MAGA pic.twitter.com/PyHNGRJKlW

Twitter user “A Free Black Man” wondered why this racist, sexist rant against Candace by Trump-hating liberal Tom Arnold wasn’t condemned by libs.

Speaking of racist…
Netflix just gave the Obamas a $50 mil contract. Here’s Hussein Obama with the racist Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who openly called for whites to be “killed” and “stalked”. #BoycottNetflix pic.twitter.com/HgYQZYhwje

Here’s Trump-hating South African liberal comedian Trevor Noah making antisemitic remarks. Double standards, anyone?

Conservative commentator CJ Pearson: “When Hillary Clinton called black kids like me “superpredators”, where was the outrage we’re seeing from the Left towards Roseanne?”
Or when @JoyVBehar called Christians mentally is, where was the outrage?
