Conservative political commentator and Tennessee Star Political Editor Steve Gill of The Gill Report, broadcast live on WETR 92.3 FM in Knoxville, marveled at the left’s oblivious double standard the left has when it comes to their own wielding racist and divisive language towards others and the media’s obvious blind eye.
You know we were regularly lectured by the left and their proponents in the mainstream fake news media about how it is the Republicans it is the conservatives that are so intolerant and so divisive in our use of language. And it’s always important I think to point out what the left and their leaders do in the name of tolerance and diversity when we have good examples to point out the truth.
This one comes from Detroit where two Detroit state representatives had been running against each other in the Michigan primary that just ended, the Democratic primary that just ended. Detroit Representative Bettie Cook Scott was running against another Representative, Stephanie Chang for a state senate seat. They were both trying to move from the state house to the state senate.
Well it turns out that Representative Bettie Cook Scott, who’s African American referred to Chang as ‘Ching Chang’ and to ‘Ching Chong’ to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s has also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an ‘immigrant’. Telling them “you don’t belong here I want you out of my country.”
Now to her credit, Chang won the election with forty nine percent of the vote, Scott came in third with eleven percent so maybe the Democrats weren’t as tolerant of the intolerant divisive language.
But why didn’t this get more attention? If a Republican candidate had been referring to an African American candidate by the most disparaging racist terms or an Asian American candidate or a Hispanic candidate in this same sort of language we’d be hearing about it. It would be breaking news. We’d be seeing CNN and CNBC host talk panels until our ears were bleeding about the comments that were made. And yet…have you heard anything about this?
Go to TennesseStar.com you can read the story for yourself. It’s not really disputed. It’s not contended that it wasn’t said that it wasn’t done. It’s just not getting the coverage that it would receive if it was a conservative or a republican using the same sort of despicable and disgusting language. Again, we talk about fake news?
And while three hundred and fifty newspapers claim that somehow their being mistreated when their being called out for their agenda driven news coverage? This story NOT getting coverage helps prove the point as well.
