One of CNN’s few lone conservatives, former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum, has been fired for making remarks that offended the left-wing network’s “woke” base. Meanwhile, multiple leftists remain employed despite their actions and rhetoric.

“[A] CNN senior executive [said] that the network quietly ended its contract with Santorum this week,” HuffPost, the first outlet to run the story, confirmed Saturday.

Late last month the now-fired CNN contributor correctly asserted that, prior to the arrival of the Europeans, the American continent had been a virtual dead zone devoid of the Judeo-Christian cultural institutions that now comprise it.

The remarks provoked furious backlash from the “woke” left, who accused him of “racist, pro-colonization comments,” as The Daily Beast put it, prompting him to appear on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” in early May to explain that he hadn’t been trying to disparage Native Americans.

“I was not trying to dismiss Native Americans. … I was talking about, and I misspoke in this respect, I was talking about the founding and the principles embodied in the founding,” he said.

But the answer was unsatisfactory to both CNN’s “woke” base and its employees.

“This executive, who requested anonymity to speak openly, said the decision to cut ties with Santorum came after he went on one of the network’s shows, ‘Cuomo Prime Time,’ to explain himself shortly after he made his racist comments. He blew it, said this executive, and after that, nobody at the network wanted to keep him around,” HuffPost reported.

However, the network has chosen to keep “around” the likes of Jeffrey Toobin, Keith Boykin, Bakari Sellers and Chris Cuomo.

Toobin “accidentally” exposed his penis during a Zoom call with his former co-workers at The New Yorker last year. He reportedly still remains employed with CNN.

Boykin accused black Trump supporters of being “Uncle Toms” last year. And then just last week he proudly shared footage to Twitter of “black power” extremists shutting down a Planet Fitness gym in Harlem for refusing to “comply” with their demands.

Sellers disparaged Trump-supporting black rapper Kanye West with racial terms in 2018, saying he’s “what happens when Negroes don’t read.”

And then there’s Cuomo, a so-called “journalist” who was exposed last week for having unethically advised his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, about how to handle the litany of sexual harassment accusations against him.

“Cuomo, one of the network’s top stars, joined a series of conference calls that included the Democratic governor’s top aide, his communications team, lawyers and a number of outside advisers, according to the people familiar with the conversations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the private sessions,” The Washington Post reported.

“The behind-the-scenes strategy … cuts against the widely accepted norm in journalism that those reporting the news should not be involved in politics,” the report added.

Vanity Fair magazine soon followed up with its own report confirming that the left-wing network has no intention of firing Cuomo, let alone even disciplining him.

“CNN said it had no plans to discipline its top primetime anchor, despite the fact that he provided counsel during staff meetings to his brother, Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, while he was in the midst of fending off sexual harassment accusations,” Vanity Fair reported.

The magazine further noted how this behavior contrasts with that of its arch-nemesis, Fox News, which CNN appears to be heavily obsessed with.

“Fox News Channel in 2019 removed Jeanine Pirro’s popular Saturday program for a period of time in the wake of remarks she made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar, a U.S. representative,” according to Vanity Fair.

CNN’s unwillingness to hold its left-wing hosts and contributors accountable for anything they do or say seems to lend credence to the theory that it’s not a real news network but rather a veritable propaganda network for the Democrat Party.

In fact, just a month ago the investigative group Project Veritas published shocking undercover footage of a CNN technical director, Charlie Chester, admitting outright that the network had used “propaganda” last year to help Democrats remove then-President Donald Trump from office.

Remarking specifically on the network’s coverage of the infamous glass of water non-scandal scandal, he said, “We brought in so many medical people to tell a story that was all speculation — that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to — you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what — I think that’s propaganda.”

He’s not the only one who thinks that …

As for Santorum, he issued a post-termination statement on Twitter late Saturday vowing to remain “committed to continuing the fight for our conservative principles and values.”
