Watch: One Of CNN’s Zombies Said, ‘Calling For The Extinction Of White People Is Not Racist’

The left’s attempts to redefine racism doesn’t actually change the meaning of racism.

Don Lemon had a panel of guests on his show to discuss the controversial and overtly racist tweets by the newly-minted editor at the New York Times, Sarah Jeong.

One commentator, far-leftist Symone Sanders, excused the racism by saying that it wasn’t actually racism.

SANDERS: No, I don’t think that Sarah’s tweets are racist. First of all, I think it’s important to note that these tweets were dug up by a right-wing — it’s not even conservative — right-wingers, people that identify with the white supremacist ideology, and they were taken out of context.

When asked if it mattered who dug them up, Sanders said that it’s important to remember that the tweets were ‘selective’ and that there was no ‘context’ for the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of tweets. The sheer volume is staggering.

Yet, Sanders defended her with the leftist trope that you can’t be racist against white people.

SANDERS: Would I have written anything like that? Absolutely not, but it’s not racist for this reason — one, Don, racism, being racist is not just prejudice, it’s prejudice plus power. So, one could argue that some of her tweets, even within context, note that she has a prejudice perhaps against white men, but that, in fact, does not make her racist. I don’t think she’s a racist; I absolutely think we are conflating two conversations.

So, prejudice is different from racism.

Who knows.

Here I was — a visible minority woman — thinking that racism was simply bias against a particular race. If you think that it isn’t racist to tweet #CancelWhitePeople and ‘Dumb*ss f***ing white people’ put into the context of hundreds of other anti-white tweets, you’ve really got to look in the mirror and examine yourself for bigotry.

Lemon asks if it isn’t racism, is it at least bigotry?

LEMON: Does it make her a bigot?

SANDERS: No, I don’t think it makes her a bigot either. Again, I think you have to look at the tweets within the context. Could she be prejudiced? Could she have some, not just implicit, but negative bias toward white men in America due to perhaps what she’s experienced throughout her life? Probably, absolutely. Does that mean though that she is in fact racist? No, because [racism] is prejudice plus power.

Uh… no, it isn’t.

There is no component of ‘power’ necessary in the definition of racism, no matter how much the identity politics crowd wants it to be inserted in there.

Shockingly, Lemon actually calls out Sanders saying that it looks like she’s excusing horrible, and obviously bigotted behavior.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Don Lemon just illustrated the principle that a stopped clock is right twice a day. Maybe he’s not even a stopped clock, but more like a malfunctioning slow clock that speeds up once a day to actually reveal the correct time.

Or something.

Hey, man — I give credit where it’s due.

Speaking of… here’s a sample of Sarah Jeong’s thoughts on why so many things suck.

Spoiler alert: it’s because of white men.

Watch a clip of Sarah Jeong’s lecture at Harvard University:

You can watch the whole thing and see if you need to contextualize what she has to say about men and ‘white people’:

So, I feel confident writing this as a visible minority woman — and one of Southeast Asian descent at that. (That’s the new way of saying ‘India’.)

If the definition of racism is power + privilege, then Symone Sanders is wrong, and by that very definition, the tweets are indeed racist.

The 2015 U.S. Census Bureau data has shown that Asians have a higher median household income than whites in America:

In addition, Jeong went to Harvard and now works at the New York Times as an editor — can you get more privileged?

The answer to that is yes, yes you can.

From the New York Times hiring announcement:

Sarah has guided readers through the digital world with verve and erudition, staying ahead of every turn on the vast beat that is the internet.

She arrives most recently from the Verge, where she’s a senior writer. She also authored the book, “The Internet of Garbage,” which examines the many forms of online harassment, free speech, and the challenges of moderating platforms and social media networks.

Born in South Korea, Sarah grew up in North Carolina and California. She’s both a journalist and a lawyer. As a student at Harvard Law School, she edited the Journal of Law & Gender and worked at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society. She was a Poynter Fellow in Journalism at Yale for 2016 and was named to Forbes 30 under 30 for Media in 2017. She’s written for The Atlantic, Vice’s Motherboard, The Washington Post, and The New York Times Magazine.

Racism is a cancer that is destroying our society.

Don’t believe me?

Maybe you’ll believe the New York Times back in those heady days when Roseanne’s show was canceled for a ‘racist’ tweet that she says she thought she made about a white woman.

Those statements by Symone Sanders sound like the ones that could have been made by the former First Lady, amirite?

Thank God she’s no longer in the White House, or you know what would have happened — Sarah Jeong would have been invited over and fêted perhaps even enjoying a nice, private concert by Beyoncé and Jay Z.

But we’ve got a new First Lady now, and Boy Howdy, am I ever glad that’s the case!

The “resist” crowd loathes her. Patriots love her.

But love her or hate her, she’s Making America Classy Again.

ClashDaily’s Big Dawg, Doug Giles, has another portrait inspired by the Trump era, and it’s fantastic.
