White Americans Given An Ultimatum

Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson got into a heated argument with conservative commentator Scott Jennings regarding a recent poll which claims forty-nine percent of the people who participated think President Trump is a racist.

Jennings believes the poll is a “reflection of the extreme political polarization in America right now.

”We are willing to ascribe all of the worst motivations to every policy view, to every action that our political opponents take,” he stated. “In this case what the people who disapprove of Trump believe he’s a racist and everything he does must be rooted in racism.”

Dyson replied, “The reality is this well, Donald Trump talks like a racist, thinks like a racist, makes statements like a racist, conjures emotions that give support to white nationalists. Yeah, he’s a racist. Racism is as racism does. So here’s the problem, Martin Luther King Jr. said it’s not the white supremacists who are the problem it’s white moderates and conservatives who are complicit by trying to dismiss it. Brother Jennings, much respect for you but what you’re doing is egregious because you’re attempting to make valid what are essentially naked raw statements of racism. This is easy stuff. This is very, very clear that it has racial animus here, and you’re trying to dismiss it as a difference of opinion. That is complicit in the racist element we’re talking about.”

Jennings responded saying, “I disagree with everything you’ve said. I disagree with the motives you’ve ascribed to me and I think most Republicans and conservatives are tired of being or complicit in racism.”

Dyson finished saying, “That a man making inflammatory remarks is not something to just be disagreed with. You should repudiate them and find cause to distance yourself from a man who can call all Mexicans rapists, Muslims who should be banned, black people who should be discriminated against, women who should be treated in a sexually predatory manner. The point is that here is a president who said things quite clearly and you as a figure can’t even say ‘Yes I find it reprehensible and he should be repudiated’ And yet you come on to say ‘I disagree with you in the past.’ That is part of the problem we are confronting here in America. Until white folk like you can stand up and find your spine, you will continue to be complicit in the racist animus of this country.”

    Michael Eric Dyson has just proved beyond any shadow of a doubt that he is a bigger racist than anyone in the Ku Klux Klan and is a monumental hypocrite as well.

      Dissent from then pronouncements of a black spokesperson is racist, you bigot!

      • mathis1689

        If that’s the case then count me as honored and proud to be a bigot and a racist!

    What a load of crap ,but true to what is being taught in our universities ,I would expect no less . We should expect those learned persons to utilize some common sense, in what is NOT a pursuit of truth and well being for the American people .

    Anybody that thinks Donald Trump is a racist did NOT grow up in Mobile Alabama or Meridian Mississippi in the 50’s. I did, and although I know that there are people that deserve the N epithet (both blacks and whites) I am not racist. But I DO know a racist when I see and hear one. I grew up wondering why everybody was against the black people. I even argued with my mother telling her when I was around 10 that these people are human beings just like us and should be treated with respect. I ate some soap for that. I was in High School in Meridian when they were trying the Sheriff from Philadelphia at the Federal courthouse in Meridian for killing the 3 civil rights workers (movie made from that was Mississippi burning). I stood on the side of the street with the people that wanted the Sheriff to hang. Racism is hatred of another human being because they are different, i.e. skin color. How stupid is that. Donald Trump wants to keep out the bad elements of illegal immigrants who ARE murderers and rapists. I understood his meaning even if he misstated what he meant. Having lived in the Middle East for 16 years (Saudi; UAE) I can tell you that allowing muslims in willy-nilly is like inviting the Waffen SS in to move in next door. It is NOT a religion of peace and they want to dominate the world with their world wide Caliphate. If you like being told how to brush your teeth, wash your hands, how and when to pray, amongst the thousands of things we humans do every day, then by all means go live in Saudi Arabia. Don’t bring that shit here.

    To the idiot democratic socialists I say before you bring your stupidity into the law of this land go down to Venezuela or over to Zimbabwe to see how your brand of government works (or in reality doesn’t work). Or did I sleep through the part of history where the USSR triumphed over the USA with the worker’s paradise rules. Oh! Capitalism won! Who would have seen that coming…

    Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people like professors seriously. Chesterton, more or less.

    Denigrating the character of their opponents is the only political strategy the Progressives have left. To them, Conservatives aren’t people with bad ideas, they’re bad people with ideas.

    This “so-called” professor is extremely ignorant. Just like”most” liberals, he says Trump calls “ALL MEXICANS, “RAPISTS.” A professor, using all inclusive assault trash talk in an attempt to win over other ignorant lemmings to his way of thinking? Muslim who should be banned? Can Muslims be Good Americans?
    Can a devout Muslim be an American patriot and a loyal citizen? Consider this:
    Theologically, no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.
    Scripturally, no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Qur’an.
    Geographically, no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer 5 times a day.
    Socially, no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.
    Politically, no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach
    annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.
    Domestically, no, because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife
    when she disobeys him. (Qur’an 4:34). Can you see a court case brewing here?
    Religiously, no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam. (Qur’an, 2:256)
    Intellectually, no, because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on
    Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.
    Philosophically, no, because Islam, Muhammad, and the Qur’an do not allow freedom of religion
    and expression.
    Spiritually, no, because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as our heavenly father, nor is he ever called Love in the Qur’an’s 99 excellent names. DEMOCRACY AND ISLAM CAN NOT CO-EXIST.
    Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic. Therefore after much study and
    deliberation perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this
    country. They obviously cannot be both good Muslims and good Americans.
    Call it what you wish…it’s still the truth. If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above, perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country. Pass it on. The war is bigger than we know.

    But these same Intellectuals advocate for Sharia law. The only ones holding blacks black are the Black slave owners, Sharpton, Mad Maxine Keith Ellison and the complicit whites, Pelosi, Schumer, Hitllery, and the emir, Obama. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c8daf76020a186c1de24c8b63972850c67b3d263cf80dc839c096c0938453ff0.jpg

    Pure and simple Dyson is the bigoted racist in this conversation and proved it with his ignorant comments. Someone needs to get this child a pacifier and to make him take a nap, child he is. Society has no use for his behavior and he should never be in a position of influence as a professor.
