Every once in a while, CNN’s Van Jones says something that bucks the liberal line of thinking.
This week, a black man walking in Central Park asked a white woman to leash her dog, as required by law. She responded by calling the police and saying that an African American man was threatening her. It was later discovered that the woman is a liberal.
Van Jones used this as the basis of his talking point.
Here’s a transcript from Real Clear Politics:
VAN JONES: People are telling me they’re tired of hashtags, they’re tired of Van Jones saying to have a bipartisan solution, they are tired of people like me, they’re tired of people saying over and over again that, you know, we’re just basically one bill away, one election away from some progress.
It’s not the racist white person who is in the Ku Klux Klan that we have to worry about. It’s the white liberal Hillary Clinton supporter walking her dog in Central Park who would tell you right now, you know, people like that, ‘I don’t see race, race is no big deal to me, I see us all as the same, I give to charities,’ but the minute she sees a black man who she does not respect or who she has a slight thought against, she weaponized race like she had been trained by the Aryan nation.
A Klansmember could not have been better trained to pick up her phone and tell the police a black man, African-American man, come get him.
So even the most liberal well-intentioned white person has a virus in his or her brain that can be activated at an instant. And so what you’re seeing now is a curtain falling away. And those of us who have been burdened by this every minute, every second of our entire lives are fragile right now. We are fragile right now. We are tired.
And so I appreciate people who have been reaching out, I’ve had people reaching out to me for two days now, expressing their empathy and sympathy.
