W. Kamau Bell
Back in May, CNN’s United Shades of America ran an episode which glorified a Washington-based Antifa chapter called the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club (JBGC), describing them as the “good guy[s].” On Saturday, a member of that group was killed by police for attempting to burn down a migrant detention center in Tacoma, Washington while armed with a rifle and incendiary devices. But as of 4:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, CNN still have yet to inform viewers of that man’s affiliation with the organization they so highly praised.
Americans didn’t need to see journalist Andy Ngo getting attacked by Antifa to know the group’s violent roots. Antifa doesn’t hide its lust for destruction. It shouts it for all to hear from beneath its black face masks. It’s part of its DNA, as much as hating free speech and denouncing anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders as a “Nazi.”
Kira Davis at RedState reports that the "woke" CNN documentary series United Shades of America wasted the time of two pro-life activists as the host, comedian W. (Walter) Kamau Bell, decided to air an almost entirely one-sided lecture about "reproductive justice." There are no "united shades" on this show. It's divisive agitprop from the get-go.
It’s been over three years since the FBI and the Department of Homeland security referred to the radical leftist Antifa movement's behavior as that of a “domestic terrorist” organization, but that hasn’t stopped CNN from promoting their activities. Just days after CNN host Chris Cuomo argued that Antifa was a “true” and “good cause”, social justice warrior Kamau Bell on Sunday’s United Shades of America offered a national platform to an Antifa member while offering no pushback against their violent tactics.
Sunday night I stumbled across CNN’s United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell and I actually learned something as host Bell devoted the hour to the joys of living in Canada. Bell featured a man who was so disgusted by Donald Trump’s election that he left Oregon for Canada. That man: Mark Nykanen, an NBC News Washington correspondent from 1980 to 1988.
On Wednesday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon was joined by fellow CNN host and comedian W. Kamau Bell to argue that Dr. Ben Carson deserved to be criticized for his recent comments that included African slaves with other "immigrants" as they argued that President Barack Obama's similar words highlighted by conservatives were somehow different and justifiable. Although Dr. Carson's use of the word "immigrants" in his speech to HUD was a large component of the lambasting he attracted from liberals, Bell shifted the focus away from the use of the word "immigrants" to Dr. Carson's comments about slaves dreaming of a better life -- as if it were unreasonable to think slaves would have hoped that their children would some day have a better life.
What a relief to learn that race is no longer "a Republican or a Democrat issue," at least according to black liberal comedian W. Kamau Bell, one of the guests on Bill Maher's HBO show Friday night.
More accurately, race is no longer a partisan issue after first lady Michelle Obama is quoted saying something awkwardly similar to remarks from GOP congressman Paul Ryan that predictably resulted in liberals denouncing Ryan as racist. (Video after the jump)
