RACISTS: CNN Claims Sen. Scott and Amb. Haley Are Tokens for White Party

The left’s identity politics went to disgusting lows during CNN’s night one analysis of the Republican National Convention. Both shoddy CNN host Jake Tapper and senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson proved just how vile they could be when they accused Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), who is black, and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who is Indian-American, of being tokens for a white and racist party.

The racist undertones started immediately after Scott concluded the first night with his inspirational address. With host Wolf Blitzer acknowledging the GOP was being uplifting and trying to expand the base with their selection of speakers, Tapper denounced the showing as being TOO diverse and unrepresentative of the party:

In terms of what the Republicans were accomplishing this evening, what they tried to accomplish, you are right, Wolf, I think they definitely were trying to appeal to the base. Obviously, they were showing a lot of diversity in the people that they had speak this evening.

It's not representative of the Republican party as a whole. Certainly not representative of the Republican Party or the Trump administration here in Washington D.C.

Just six minutes later, Henderson was on and ranting about racism. Covering up the fact that radical, Marxist Black Lives Matter protesters had broken into their private community and threatened to burn down their home and kill their dog, Henderson smeared the St. Louis McCloskey couple who represented “the fear of black and brown people, fear of poor people.”
