*Have you ever noticed that nearly every public pronouncement that spews from the mouth of Cornel West is literally dripping with racial innuendo? His latest racist slander is that MSNBC is the ‘Rent a Negro’ network.
Cornel West spews more racist rhetoric than any Republican in America. The reason for that is he’s essentially an entertainer who specializes in shock and race-baiting as his one and only routine. Clear evidence of that is he’s over the top in everything that defines him – he’s over the top in his personal image, in his overly gesticulative presentation, and his rhetoric is invariably inflammatory.
Everything about him is a contrivance that’s specifically designed to bring attention to himself. The actual issues are meaningless to him. They’re nothing more than a platform to launch his performance. In short, Cornel West is the Liberace of faux intellectualism.
CORNEL WEST USES A FALSE “LOVE OF BLACK PEOPLE” TO SLANDER BLACK PEOPLE WHO OVERSHADOW HIM
West routinely uses policy differences as a pretext for making unsubstantiated and slanderous assertions about the character of the president and every other high-profile Black person who overshadows him:
1). President Obama is a “war criminal.”
2). President Obama is “a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs . . .”
3). President Obama is “a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”
4). President Obama is “a Rockefeller Republican in Blackface.”
5). President Obama “has a certain rootlessness, a deracination.”
6). President Obama Is “Afraid Of Free Black Men.”
7). Dr. Harris-Perry is a “fake and a fraud”
8). Dr. Michael Eric Dyson “is a sellout.”
9). Al Sharpton “is a sellout.”
10). MSNBC is the “Rent a Negro Network.”
Not one of those assertions is a disciplined and scholarly substantiated assessment of the facts. On the contrary, they’re the reckless and intellectually undisciplined rants of a bitter and raving lunatic.
For cornel West there’s something ‘racially defective’ about every Black person who has the audacity to preempt Cornel West from the limelight. In order to gain clear evidence of that fact one simply has to ask oneself, what efforts have West made to try to improve the plight of the Black community? . . . MORE at Wattree.
