No news to cover? PBS reporter tells tale of racist Trump supporters being obsessed with her skin color

One of the most remarkable things to witness in America since 2008 is the racial divide driven by the progressive left, beginning with Barack Obama’s “police acted stupidly” line about his belligerent Harvard professor friend, only to then see them spin this as a creation of the right.

It’s almost as if Obama was setting the stage for a successor he could never have imagined, as the left was quick to call President Trump a racist, a line of attack that was quickly expanded to include millions of Americans who supported Trump.

 

And while it appears that Trump has been defeated, smearing his supporters as racists never grows old for the left, as seen Monday from PBS NewsHour’s White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.

“Morning Joe” regular Donny Deutsch set Alcindor up with an ignorant observation about Trump being a fascist, claiming 50% of the country supports fascism, and that the “good guys” won in November.

 

Further stating that the president’s supporters are willing to throw out “democracy,” this being code for Democratic mob rule, he attributed the resistance to the Marxist-inspired policies on the left to racism.

“What is it going on in the country now, what is it that’s so terrifying for white people and that’s what this is about, that people of color are threatening them so deeply they are willing to dismiss Democratic tenets?” Deutch asked.

Co-host Joe Scarborough pivoted to Alcindor, who said the hairbrained theory was “solid,” as she set about detailing just how racist Trump supporters are.

“I have been talking to so many Trump supporters over the last few years and I have to tell you, even when I talk to them about policies, about foreign policy, about China, a lot of times the Trump supporters that I talk to they turn the issue back to race,” she said.

Alcindor spoke about her interaction with a man in Wisconsin to say this was a hint that race would be “a running theme of the Trump Administration.”

She proceeds to offer a fanciful tale about the man questioning how she, as a black woman, could get a job at the New York Times. The journalist said that even though the man lived in a Florida neighborhood that was 97% white, he expressed concern about all the African-American people moving into his town.

Another Trump supporter lived in a gated community in a largely white community, according to Alcindor, who said he was worried about “Mexicans” coming to get him.

“There is this real elephant in the room, even when you talk about policy, that Trump supporters, the ones that I interacted with, not all of the Trump supporters but a large majority of them, do bring up the issue of race and bring up their fears of the unknown of African-Americans, of Latinos, of this kind of browning of America,” she pontificated.

“That is just something that has been — that needs to be covered, that needs to be said out loud and I keep thinking of the man in Wisconsin who looked at me who said how could you possibly have a job and make more money than me?” Alcindor added, explaining that she told the man that she and her parents went to college.

“He wanted to talking about the fact that he was worried about a black girl like me was a threat to his future,” she concluded.

Forgetting that Alcindor describes a world that would be foreign to the average Trump supporter, her remarks sadly suggest that despite her qualifications, she believes that the color of her skin is her most redeeming quality — at least in the sense that it allows her the moral authority to condemn those she disagrees with.
