Outspoken broadcaster Joe Rogan ripped critics calling black Republicans “white supremacists” following last week's Virginia election, which saw the state elect its first female black lieutenant governor, Winsome Sears.
Following her election, Sears said that she was living the American dream and that her victory demolished “all of the narratives about race.”
What are the details?
During Monday's broadcast of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” Rogan said that it's impossible to be a black white supremacist.
“You can't be gay and be in ISIS, you know?” he said. “That's like being a black white supremacist, but actually, that's possible now. They're saying that. Any time a black person says anything that doesn't go with the Democratic Party narrative. They said that person's carrying water for white supremacists.”
He continued, “They're out of their f***ing mind. That lady that was the new lieutenant governor of Virginia that is a black woman. … She's sponsored by the NRA. I don't know what all of her accolades, but she's an incredibly articulate lady, powerful woman. They're saying that her becoming the lieutenant governor is a victory for white supremacy. I read that.”
Rogan added that the Democratic Party is keen to slap the “white supremacy” label on “as many things as they can.”
Rogan's comments come after sports writer Jemele Hill oddly appeared to
blame white supremacy for Sears' win.
In response to Sears' win, Hill, a former ESPN broadcaster, tweeted, “It's not the messaging, folks, this country simply loves white supremacy.”
Hill wasn't the only one: Liberal commentator Michael Eric Dyson told MSNBC's Joy Reid that Sears' was nothing more than a “black mouth” for “white supremacist practices.”
Of Sears' election, Dyson told Reid, “You are doing what all political figures what must do: make choices. The problem is here they want white supremacy by ventriloquist effect. There is a black mouth moving but a white idea … running on the runway of the tongue of a figure who justifies and legitimates the white supremacist practices. We know that we can internalize in our own minds, in our own subconscious, in our own bodies the very principles that are undoing us. So to have a black face speaking in behalf of a white supremacist legacy is nothing new.”
