In a stunning display of bravery, a Twitter verified user made the claim that “communist” is a “coded word” for the n-word, typing the word in its entirety.
Bree Newsome, a self-described “artist” and activist who climbed a South Carolina flag pole to remove the Confederate flag in 2015 and was somehow verified by Twitter as a result, made the claim that “communist” is somehow a code word for the n-word, and wrote the word in its entirety. The word, typically removed from Twitter, is apparently allowed for the sake of defending communism.
In a series of tweets, Newsome wrote “Since at least the 1950s, “communist” has become a popular coded word for n*****. Let’s be real,” and added that “Anybody Black advocating equal rights is a “communist” [read: no good n*****] who is a threat to the American way of life [read: white man’s country]. They called MLK communist when they weren’t calling him Martin Luther Coon.”
Anybody Black advocating equal rights is a "communist" [read: no good nigger] who is a threat to the American way of life [read: white man's country]. They called MLK communist when they weren't calling him Martin Luther Coon.

Doubling down despite the majority of responses calling her out on the defamatory and bizarre statement, Newsome lambasted those who dared to question her supreme wokeness.
Newsome gave a shoutout “to the folks who sent me emails last night accusing me of being a lying ‘communist’ and proving my point.” She added, “Why do racists always do that? They’re always like, ‘I’m so mad you said this is racist. Now let me do exactly what you said.”
S/O to the folks who sent me emails last night accusing me of being a lying "communist" and proving my point.
Why do racists always do that? They're always like, "I'm so mad you said this is racist. Now let me do exactly what you said."

It is likely nobody who sent her “emails” cared about her race, but rather her effort to equate communism, a deadly ideology that killed tens of millions in the last century, with a horrific slur meant to dehumanize people based on skin color.
It is also likely Newsome wrote her tweet with Sen. Lindsey Graham in mind, as the globalist-turned-ally of President Donald Trump recently declared that congresswomen who the president recently encouraged to return to their homelands were communists.
“We all know AOC and this crowd are a bunch of communists,” Graham said, using a nickname for Ocasio-Cortez. “They hate Israel, they hate our own country. Calling guards along our border, calling Border Patrol agents concentration-camp guards. They accuse people who support Israel of ‘doing it for the Benjamins.’ They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.”
“I think they’re American citizens duly-elected running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject,” Graham continued, mentioning support for government healthcare coverage for unauthorized immigrants and decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings.
The vast majority of Twitter users seemed to mock the insensitive and ludicrous statement.
So…when I call Bernie a commie, I'm calling him an n-word?

Race baiting huckster says what now? What is the political make up of that large populace of China?

No, this has never been a thing. Not for any sane person ever. One is about a failed ideology and the other is a racist slur that doesn't need to be said by anyone. This is ludicrous.

Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
