Exposed as an opportunistic race-hustler, she immediately went looking for a scapegoat.
CNN loves to call anyone even slightly Right of Stalin a ‘bigot’. The reason is simple: if you can destroy the person, you can discredit or even ignore their arguments.
This is, by no means, a new game.
The dishonest lawyer class back in Socrates’ day were famous for it, they were called ‘Sophists’. They could spin words to make innocent people look guilty, and vice versa. Socrates, one of the keystones of Western Culture, was a waking nightmare to such petty and dishonest hirelings, with a search for truth.
CNN obviously still hires such lawyers today, and here’s proof.
In a radio interview with radio host David Webb, Areva Martin (a Harvard-trained lawyer, activist, and TV Personality) pressed her case in the most tired and feeble way possible.
She played the ‘white privilege’ card.
She played that card… on a black man.
Which shows just how seriously they take their own accusations. (And how seriously we should take them).
Literally knowing nothing about the personal history of the man she was accusing, a Harvard-Trained Lawyer, gladly flung baseless accusations designed purely to discredit her opponent (ad hominem attack) rather than interact with any of his ideas.
‘I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,’ Webb said on his Patriot show.
It led Martin to respond with a statement that suggested she believed Webb was Caucasian.
‘That’s a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,’ she replied.
It emerged she had the wrong idea when Webb probed further into her thinking.
‘How do I have the privilege of white privilege?’ he questioned her. To which she hit back. ‘David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.’
When he told her he was a BLACK man, she said ‘I stand corrected’ and went on to say she had some bad information. She continued excusing herself by saying she had ‘bad information’. Never once did it occur to her to ask if the problem was in her assumptions.
He was insulted, and he should be.
His reply took her to school.

‘You’re talking to a black man… who started out in rock radio in Boston, who crossed the paths into hip-hop, rebuilding one of the greatest black stations in America and went on to work at Fox News where I’m told apparently blacks aren’t supposed to work, but yet, you come with this assumption, and you go to white privilege,’ Webb continued. ‘That’s actually insulting.’
When they’re talking about someone they like, success is always some variation of ‘a testament to their courage, hard work and merit’. But if an ideological opponent does well, it’s a whole other story. Success can’t be for those reasons, it can only be because they got a handout, or they knew the right people, or they sold out.
If you want to see a network with an established track record of hiring sellouts and hirelings, take a good hard look at CNN itself. Who have they filled their time with?
Kasich just signed on, and Brennan before him.
Avanetti was just dreamy, and Comey — who they had all hated just months before — was practically a caped crusader.
Donna Brazile was busted passing debate questions to Hillary while working for CNN — and then went on from there to head up the DNC.
On and on we could go.
But what’s the point? In the end, the seething, impotent rage will eventually exhaust itself, and they’ll be right back where they were in 2016 — angry, exhausted, and wondering, “What Happened”?
