Chris Cuomo Attacks Tucker Carlson for being “WASPy”
CNN’s Chris Cuomo mocked Tucker Carlson for his ethnic background last Thursday, July 18, 2019.
NewsBusters reported on Cuomo’s attack against Carlson for his perceived WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) background during his show Cuomo Prime Time.
Cuomo held a conversation with Alexandra Rojas, the Executive Director of the Justice Democrats.
Cuomo first asked, “And why did he pick these? Why isn’t he going after Biden and Bernie as much as he’s going after Brown women? And, you know, when I – again, people get upset when I put it that way.”
The show host was referring to the so-called “Squad” comprised of Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
He then asked Rojas, “But you tell me why he picked these four people, and why he keeps talking about them? He talks about these four, more than he does anybody who’s running against him. What do the Democrats do about that?”
Well I think that they need to embrace it, right? I think go on the offensive, and talk about our vision because the reality is, is that, you know, the progressive ideals that these four Congresswomen represent.
And let me take a step back because I think that Fox News and Donald Trump have been targeting these women. They’ve at least been targeting AOC.
And the reason why is because these are four women of color and they are trying to point to these white voters and say, “You have nothing in common with black and brown people of this country.”
Cuomo then went out of his way to mock Carlson’s ethnicity:
And that’s why you see Tucker Carlson doing it so much because he is the picture of the WASPy white male, right?
Interestingly enough, Carlson is not purely WASP since he is about a fourth Italian on his mother’s side. Her maiden name is Lombardi.
Nevertheless, the Left has never concerned itself with the facts.
To move its political correctness culture agenda forward, the Left finds a certain enemy (WASPs in this case) and continues to relentlessly attack them no matter how erroneous their logic is.
This is the strategy of the 21st century Left, and it appears that they have not shied away from this blatantly racist identity politics agenda.
