A CNN columnist has now decided that the word “patriot” is out of bounds because it has “racist overtones.”
“The US is preparing to send 5,000 troops to the border. It is called “Operation Faithful Patriot.” Why does everything tagged “patriot” or “freedom” seem tainted with racist overtones?” Carol Costello asked on Twitter.

Once again, CNN is beating the “racist” drum. It is now impossible to have a civilized conversation about American immigration policy – let alone oppose illegal immigration – without some elitist snob in cable news crying “racism.” But this is a new low.
Patriotism is something that Americans used to be able to hold with pride. Now, CNN is shaming people who hold that trait as “racists.” Since when did “patriot” become a dirty word? Do the New England Patriots of the National Football League have to change their nickname?
To answer Costello’s question, everything “tagged patriot” has “racist overtones” because the hucksters at CNN and other cable news outlets are more than happy to make a buck off of driving racial division in America. It is an epidemic of greed as bad, if not worse, than any greed on Wall Street that the political left constantly bemoans.
Greed in the banking industry may affect Americans’ wallets, but greed in the news industry is literally tearing the fabric of this nation apart. Race-baiting for money is out of hand, and CNN ought to be appalled that it has devolved into peddling this smut.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
