Friday's HOT MIC
STOP THE HAMMERING
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell is whitesplaining some things.
MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell accused Gen. John Kelly of "dehumanizing" Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), and blamed it on his upbringing in an Irish-Catholic Boston neighborhood.
O'Donnell, who noted he also hails from a similar part of Boston, said Kelly was raised in Oak Square, Brighton.
Larry's deep thinker point is that, since Kelly grew up in Boston during segregation he's totally not used to being around people of color. What O'Donnell doesn't get into is the fact that Kelly spent forty-six years in the Marines. The American military isn't exactly a hotbed of segregated racial angst. Quite the opposite, in fact.
What O'Donnell is doing is a familiar leftist tactic now. A white male can't disagree with females or persons of color, according to Dem media and social justice warrior rules. We're sexist, racist, or both if we do.
Of course that's not true, but none of the leftist playbook is based on truth, or reality.
