Woke insanity: CNN decides that saying a Black person’s name is racist

On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, host John King decided with Washington Post White House Reporter Toluse Olorunnipa that naming a black person and criticizing a sports league is racist. The woke hacks insanely declared that President Trump was using racist “dog whistles” by “naming a black man” when Trump stated that Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) would be in charge of Joe Biden’s housing policies.

King initiated the race baiting by playing the interview where Trump mentioned Booker:

KING: But he’s talking about Joe Biden, trying to win back suburban voters and he’s decided now to name a certain name. Listen.

DONALD TRUMP: They want to put low income housing in the suburbs. And I ended it. I signed three weeks ago, I signed a regulation, which will end it. And the suburbs will be the suburbs again. Biden wants to re-establish that program, but make it much worse. And they recommended Cory Booker to be in charge. Cory Booker’s going to head it up. He’s going to be the one that tells you what to do and destroys your — your housing and your area.

KING: Correct me if I’m wrong, but my first campaign was 1988, and I lived through the Willy Horton ad, naming a black man seems pretty clear to me what the President is trying to do there.

Or just maybe Trump does not want a radical leftist who supports policies such as slavery reparations, a $15 a hour minimum wage, free public college, and Medicare for all to undue his recent cut of onerous Obama administration regulations on the suburbs.

At the end of July, Trump undid Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) policy because it enabled the federal government to bypass local governments and homeowners by charging the federal government with planning their neighborhoods for them. The policy increased local taxes by requiring towns to build larger water and sewer lines, add mass transportation, and increase school sizes and social services. Stanley Kurtz of the Ethics and Public Policy Center wrote that the policy perverted the intention of 1968 Fair Housing Act through “federal overreach on steroids” which “nullifies the very idea of legislative democracy.” But sure, this is racism.

Olorunnipa doubled down on the Orwellian argument:

The — the idea that he would even be sort of put forward — it — it really scratches your head unless you sort of see that the dog whistles that the President is pointing to talking about low income housing, talking through these code words about suburban housewives being — having their housing threatened and having their — their safety threatened by low income people coming in to their communities is very clear that he’s looking at this through a racial lens, he’s trying to scare some moderate white voters who may be on the fence about his campaign and may not like his rhetoric but he’s trying to say, I’m the only thing protecting you from, you know, tons of people coming into your neighborhood and making it look not like it used to look. And he said he’s going to make the suburbs great again and sort of this throwback to you know, the 1960’s and 1970’s.

King then accused Trump of being upset by the NBA kneeling for the national anthem because he is “not” a “fan” of the First Amendment and because “the majority of the athletes are black”:

KING: The President clearly likes — I’m going to call it the culture debate here. I’m a big fan of the NBA. I’m also a big fan of the First Amendment. The President? Clearly not. Listen.

(Cuts to Audio)

TRUMP: There was a nastiness about the NBA the way it was done too so I think that they — the NBA’s in trouble. It’s in big trouble. Bigger trouble than they understand. Well I haven’t noticed them sending things back at me, but I will say that, you know, I wouldn’t be that surprised. Some are very nasty, very, very nasty and — and frankly very dumb.

(Cuts to live)

KING: The NBA, of course, the majority of the athletes are black and a lot of them are taking a knee right now and wearing things on their jerseys in the bubble saying, you know, provocative things like black lives matter.

According to the experts on wokeness at CNN, saying a black person’s name and not being “a big fan of the NBA” is now racist.

JOHN KING: But he’s talking about Joe Biden, trying to win back suburban voters and he’s decided now to name a certain name. Listen.

DONALD TRUMP: They want to put low income housing in the suburbs. And I ended it. I signed three weeks ago, I signed a regulation, which will end it. And the suburbs will be the suburbs again. Biden wants to re-establish that program, but make it much worse. And they recommended Cory Booker to be in charge. Cory Booker’s going to head it up. He’s going to be the one that tells you what to do and destroys your — your housing and your area.

KING: Correct me if I’m wrong, but my first campaign was 1988, and I lived through the Willy Horton ad, naming a black man seems pretty clear to me what the President is trying to do there, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat of New Jersey. Am I wrong?

TOLUSE OLORUNNIPA (WHITE HOUSE REPORTER, THE WASHINGTON POST): It’s pretty clear what the President is trying to do. First of all, there’s no evidence that Cory Booker is going to be in charge of suburban housing — housing. He’s a Senator from New Jersey, he was the mayor of an — an urban city. The — the idea that he would even be sort of put forward — it — it really scratches your head unless you sort of see that the dog whistles that the President is pointing to talking about low income housing, talking through these code words about suburban housewives being — having their housing threatened and having their — their safety threatened by low income people coming in to their communities is very clear that he’s looking at this through a racial lens, he’s trying to scare some moderate white voters who may be on the fence about his campaign and may not like his rhetoric but he’s trying to say, I’m the only thing protecting you from, you know, tons of people coming into your neighborhood and making it look not like it used to look. And he said he’s going to make the suburbs great again and sort of this throwback to you know, the 1960’s and 1970’s, and — and — the –the country just doesn’t look like that anymore, the suburbs are very diverse, a lot of the white voters that the President is trying to appeal to are actually thrown off and — and push back by his very clear and thinly veiled racial rhetoric and it’s not clear that the strategy is going to work outside of some thin margins of winning over some voters who this appeals to. But it’s pretty clear what he’s trying to do and it is a throwback to some of those types of ugly campaigning that we saw back in the 80’s.

KING: Right. It is a throwback and it is, you know, be afraid of them is what the President is trying to say as you note. The country changed, the suburbs have changed. It is clear, Kaitlan, again, a lot of people around the President say, sir, this is dangerous, the President likes the culture debate here. I’m a big fan of the NBA. I’m a big fan of the first amendment. The president clearly not. Listen.

TRUMP: There was a nastiness about the NBA the way it was done too so I think that they — the NBA is in trouble. I think it is in big trouble. Bigger trouble than they understand. What I haven’t noticed them sending things back at me, but I will say that, you know, I wouldn’t be that surprised, some are very nasty, very, very nasty and frankly very dumb.
