Tolerant Liberal Blames Trump Vote on “White Evangelicals”, “White Rage”, “White Backlash” on MSNBC


Reverend William Barber II, the president of North Carolina’s NAACP chapter, in an appearance on the Joy Reid show blamed the Trump vote on white evangelicals, “white rage” and “white backlash”.

“You know what I think drove those so called evangelicals is — it was more about the backing of the money behind it, the business interests. This whole business of white evangelicalism started in the 40s when they wanted to find a theological way to come against what Franklin Delano Roosevelt was going.”

“The realty was they walked away from the primary pieces of the gospel. How can you support somebody who stands up and tells you, if you elect me, I believe that minimum wage is already too high. I’m going to take people’s health care, I’m going to privatize schools. And that’s one of the things we have rejected in this particular election.”

“That is why you cannot understand this irrational vote without factoring in the racism, factoring in the white rage, the white backlash that Trump and not just him, that began even when Obama first got elected and an and others have played on.”

He wasn’t finished. He claimed whites want to restore a racial hierarchy.

The National Review reported that the Rev. William Barber II, speaking to a crowd of about 300 at the Zion Baptist Church in 2014 said this about Republican Senator Tim Scott, who is black:

“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Barber said, “the extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”

It’s Barber’s belief that no black can be a Republican.

He’s a bigot who never has to answer for it. These liberals sure are tolerant and civil.
