Liberals in American media are pretty sure that the only reason the British people would want to leave the European Union is because they’re a bunch of racists who fear foreigners.
The liberal site VOX just published this: Brexit isn’t about economics. It’s about xenophobia.
They’re not alone.
NBC News followed suit. NewsBusters reported:
NBC Freak-Out: Brexit = ‘Fear, Xenophobia, Racism,’ ‘Threatens Western Civilization’
Appearing on NBC’s Today, analyst and Daily Beast editor Christopher Dickey launched into a tirade against Britain’s vote to leave the European Union: “…they claim it says, right off the bat, is that they were tired of all the bureaucracy of the European Union, they didn’t want all the constraints, they want their sovereignty. But what this was really about is fear, xenophobia, in some cases, certainly racism.”
He denounced Brexit campaign tactics: “…the big push for this came from a party UKIP, the UK Independence Party, that was busy putting up posters of Syrian immigrants coming in at the border of Croatia. That was not really a problem for Britain, but it was touching a button, a hot button for people in Britain who said, ‘We want out. We want to isolate ourselves, again.’”

The same thing happened at CNN, NewsBusters caught it again:
CNN’s Liberal Meltdown: Brexit Means ‘Xenophobia,’ ‘White Identity’ Win
Liberal CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour suffered an epic meltdown on Thursday night as it became clear that Britain was asserting its national sovereignty and voting to leave the European Union. The sneering Amanpour repeatedly derided it as an example of “xenophobia” and “white identity” politics.
Early in the evening, with the result still in doubt, Amanpour told Anderson Cooper: “A lot of the Leave movements are led by the hard-right, very, very xenophobic, anti-immigrant, very populist, nationalist, white identity politics.” Later, as reality set in, the journalist referenced the current issue of The Economist and raged, “This marks a victory for the kind of economic nationalism, to quote this article here, for the kind of xenophobia, that will imperil the liberal world order that has guaranteed western prosperity and stability since World War two.”

Our media is so dishonest and in the tank for progressive policies they make the Pravda blush.
The people of Britain voted for their sovereignty and there’s nothing wrong with that. They should be congratulated for defending their freedom and national identity.
