Jeffrey Lord was fired from CNN after making racist remarks on social media, promoting racial violence. Shortly after his firing, Lord was picked up by Breitbart News, the right-wing media outlet run by Steve Bannon.
Lord made his official debut at Breitbart on Monday where he accused former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton of being just like former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Lord claimed that the Democratic Party is a racist party because Southern Democratic party members supported slavery.
“Clinton is a believer in ‘identity politics’ — the grandchild of slavery and the son of segregation, the latter two racist policies the political fuel for Clinton’s party from its birth, not to mention the later ‘progressive movement’ that was folded into the party by Woodrow Wilson,” Lord alleged.
Lord’s ramble is outdated, his remarks are about the random 20th Century history and the history of the Democratic Party’s racism. Lord’s statements are simply hypocritical. He accused the media of not having “the guts to call Hillary out as the new David Duke.” He then promised he always will.
But what about the man in the White House? Shouldn’t he be calling out Donald Trump for his constant racist remarks, his failure to condemn white supremacy, and the fact that David Duke actually supports Trump?
