Though Glenn Beck got lost inside his own head over the past decade, allowing his emotion to undermine his credibility, at the height of his popularity, when he and his chalkboard took America to school on the left, Beck cited the early 20th century to say that progressives will become so emboldened that they’ll eventually tell us who they really are.
Fast forward to the year 2020, and a Washington Post editor just let slip who the real racists may be in America today.
With the hammer and sickle a common site on streets, and white Americans facing growing scorn from radical Democrats, Washington Post Global Opinion editor Karen Attiah scrambled to delete a tweet posted Sunday warning white women that they’re lucky black people are not “calling for revenge.”
The deleted tweet stated: “The lies and tears of White women hath wrought: The 1921 Tulsa Massacre, Murder of Emmet Till, Exclusion of Black women from feminist movements, 53% of white women voting for Trump. White women are lucky that we are just calling them “Karens”. And not calling for revenge.”

Attiah doubled down on her stance in replies to a social media user, tweeting: “I’m just saying. Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge.”
She also noted that revenge is not pursued because they know “much blood will be spilled.”
Apparently, these tweets were also deleted…. as was the hypocritical tweet seen here:

Understanding who has the real privilege in post-Obama America, Attiah posted a ho-hum tweet Monday morning in response to the controversy over her tweets:

After all, it’s not like the Trump-hating liberal Washington Post is going to take any action for the racially explosive tweets.
A first-generation American, Attiah was born in Northeastern Texas in 1986 to a Nigerian-Ghanaian mother and Ghanaian father.
As social media users noted, Ghana, which is on the “Gold Coast” of Western Africa, has a rich history in the slave trade, with locals actively capturing their countrymen and selling them as slaves to Europeans, and later to Americans.
Here’s a sampling of some of the responses to the story from Twitter:
“Attiah was born in Northeastern Texas in 1986 to a Nigerian-Ghanaian mother and Ghanaian father.”
Attiah’s ancestors were the ones capturing and selling the slaves, not the slaves themselves. What does she want revenge for? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/hg31R0MNV0

She’s a first generation American. What is she looking for revenge for? What even her claim? Her parents came here, she was born in texas, and went on to be a wild success. how many ppl become editors at the top newspaper in America. That’s not enough? She needs to kill ppl?

Ah, the kind and open person who rationalizes for “revenge” in which “much blood will be spilled.” Got it. pic.twitter.com/oFgukkG0nE

Woman named Karen insulting other women by calling them Karen sums up the last few weeks quite nicely.
