Greg Gutfeld of Fox News’ Five and Red Eye is one funny guy. Sometimes though, he’s not just funny – he is dead on accurate. Recently the folks at the Five picked up the debate over some harsh words that the President of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP had for Senator Tim Scott (R-SC).
“Barber said on Sunday that Tim Scott, a black Republican senator from South Carolina, is a dummy for ventriloquist white Republicans and does not think for himself.”
The panel argued back and forth, with the conservatives agreeing that they were growing tired of these attacks on minority conservatives, the idea being that somehow every minority conservative is simply a weak mouthpiece for some greater WHITE conservative agenda. Bob Beckel, the panel’s lone liberal, tried to push back on that theme, “I don’t understand why it is that black conservatives always feel like they’re — you know, they’re disenfranchised or nobody likes them,” he said, to outrage from the panel. “Maybe I didn’t phrase that right,” he backtracked. “Why is it that black conservatives believe that nobody listens to them, that they have the answers and that we’re constantly drowning them out?”
It was this point that Gutfeld laid down some truth on the panel.
“The scariest two words in a white liberal dictionary are ‘Allen West.’ If they see him walking down the street, they cross it and get fleeced by Al Sharpton. It’s white liberals, in every — whether it’s on social networks or on TV — that mock black conservatives. The way they treat Mia Love, the way they treat Allen West, the way they treat Tim Scott. It’s not an exception. It’s the rule.”
