Race-Baiting CNN: Loeffler Lost Because She Made Warnock ‘a Radical Negro’ ‘Scary Black Man’


If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that the media will never stop crying “racism” anytime a black Democrat is challenged on their policies.

In two separate segments during CNN’s early morning Georgia senate race coverage Wednesday, analysts and reporters echoed each other in hailing Democrat Raphael Warnock’s win as a rejection of Republicans’ racist messaging.

Towards the end of the 2:00 am EST hour, CNN analyst Bakari Sellers claimed the GOP had a failed “strategy” of “attacking the black church,” to which host Don Lemon agreed:

“The reason you had this turnout the way it was is that one of the strategies they employed was attacking the black church,” Sellers gushed, adding, “like, you can’t do that in the South!”

Lemon concurred: “Especially when it is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s church!”

After making baseless accusations of racism, Sellers got more blunt with his accusations:

“Raphael Warnock had to thread an incredible needle because they tried to make him a radical negro. That was the plan and it didn’t work. It backfired,” he argued.

Republicans literally took direct quotations from the reverend’s sermons to show how radical he is, not to mention his troublesome pro-abortion stance as a self-professed Christian. Why does CNN feel the need to color this credible criticism with ugly allegations of racism?

But this false messaging continued a few hours later on the network. 

On New Day, senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson bashed “lazy” Republican opponent, Senator Kelly Loeffler before characterizing her as a racist:

“She [Loeffler] essentially thought, I can run against Raphael Warnock, who is a minister, the pastor of one of the most legendary churches in all of America, she thought she could run against him as a scary black man, a radical Socialist!” Henderson gushed.

The reporter also hailed the influence of the black church in getting Democrats elected and hoped they would sweep the South and flip it blue:

And we saw that backfire terribly and really awaken the black church, right? One of the most powerful organizing institutions this country has ever seen. If you think about their primary involvement, their primary organizing, you know, strategy around the Civil Rights movement. So that’s what you see happening. I think the question is, can you replicate this in other southern states across the country? 

Before she went back to race-baiting: 

“And listen, Republicans made a decision. It was to suppress the black vote, ignore other, you know, kind of diverse voters that are in those states. And they really thought they could win just on the white vote,” she claimed.

2:45:47 am – 2:46:34 AM EST

 

BAKARI SELLERS: You know, it was fascinating to see in Georgia one of the things we talked about was strategy earlier. The reason you had this turnout the way it was is that one of the strategies they employed was attacking the black church.

 

DON LEMON: Yeah.

 

SELLERS: –like you can’t do that in the South. And so — 

 

LEMON: Bakari, you can’t do it especially when it is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s church, the guy is the pastor and John Lewis — 

 

SELLERS: I mean it was—But Raphael Warnock had to thread an incredible needle because they tried to make him a radical negro. That was the plan and it didn’t work. It backfired so now you have a Morehouse alum going to the senate and Howard alum who is vice president and a Spellman sister who lived them up. It’s a great day in Georgia when you think about the context of history we’re in.

 

New Day

NIA-MALIKA HENDERSON: And I think you also saw from the Republican party a terrible candidate in Kelly Loeffler. Somebody who was quite lazy in terms of how she ran. She essentially thought, I can run against Raphael Warnock, who is a minister, the pastor of one of the most legendary churches in all of America, she thought she could run against him as a scary black man, a radical Socialist. And cling to Donald Trump and that would be enough. She wasn’t offering voters much of anything beyond that. And we saw that backfire terribly and really awaken the black church, right? One of the most powerful organizing institutions this country has ever seen. If you think about their primary involvement, their primary organizing, you know, strategy around the Civil Rights movement. So that’s what you see happening. I think the question is, can you replicate this in other southern states across the country? 

Places like South Carolina, places like Mississippi, where the black vote also 20, 30% or so. And that will be the question for Democrats. But they’ve got some good news here with what happened in Georgia, sun belt state, and also what happened in Arizona. And listen, Republicans made a decision. It was to suppress the black vote, ignore other, you know, kind of diverse voters that are in those states. And they really thought they could win just on the white vote, but again, you see the white vote declining in many of these states. Latinos moving in, api individuals as well, and then the black voters, as well. This was a long time coming for Democrats. And we’ll see what’s next. And really, obviously, good news for Joe Biden.
