As improbable as this may sound, MSNBC just hit a new low that just might even stun even the most cynical of conservative observers. Apparently, according to the astonishingly emptyheaded talking heads at MSNBC, a Black person who supports Trump is probably getting paid to support him.
More specifically, Vernon Jones, a Black Democrat who has openly voiced his support for Trump, was asked directly by MSNBC host Craig Melvin if he was “a paid surrogate” or “being compensated,” for Trump, as seen in the interview here.
Let that sink in for just a minute. It really shouldn’t be that shocking initially, given that it’s an open secret that Democrats effectively bribe minorities for votes through promises of lavish social welfare programs with unclear sources of funding. Nevertheless, it is a bit shocking when the open secret transforms into open commentary during primetime hour.
Sort of like the person that everyone knows is constantly cheating, yet the cheater can still manage to shock people by openly announcing serial philandering without any qualms or reservations whatsoever. In a similar manner, the fake news media openly announced that the primary mechanism through which the leftists reach voters is through effectively paying them.
Vernon Jones makes the reasoning underlying his support for Trump crystal clear, laying out facts and statistics as part of his reasoning, in a compelling editorial, part of which is excerpted below
“In 2016, more than 1.3 million Black Americans cast their ballots for Donald Trump, a marked improvement over Mitt Romney’s performance despite a desperate campaign by MSNBC and other mainstream media outlets to convince us that Trump was an unforgivable racist …
Since then, President Trump’s performance in office has delivered more genuine economic prosperity and social progress to Black Americans than any of his predecessors, Obama included. The results have convinced many more Black people who are “supposed to” vote for Joe Biden to come over to the MAGA movement …
I am one of them — and not only was I not paid to make my decision, it didn’t even require me to adjust any of my principles or beliefs.” [Source: Fox News]
Clearly, Jones is fair, rational, and intelligent, which means that MSNBC was no match for Jones.
Unfortunately for the MSNBC host who thought it was a good idea to ask Vernon Jones if he was getting paid to support President Trump, Jones rapidly ripped MSNBC apart, highlighting all of its borderline hilarious hypocrisy, much to the delight of conservative viewers.
As soon as Melvin asked if Jones was being paid to support Trump, Melvin issued a fiery retort, which steamrolled forward, in spite of Melvin’s desperate attempts to interrupt the truth. However, he was no match for Jones, who is clearly firm in his convictions, as seen in the retort to MSNBC below.
“Let me be clear. You get paid to shape a liberal narrative. You get paid to attack this president … I don’t get a dime for this president. I don’t get a dime from the campaign. Everything I’ve done has been me and based on my principles …
You only ask me that because I don’t fit your narrative. I don’t want anything from this president. It’s what I can do for my country and you need to accept that many other African-Americans and others support this president because of his policies. And to insult me to say am I getting paid that is disgraceful” [Source: Red State]
Jones also added that Melvin’s questions were hallmark inquiries from the fake news media.
“[That question is] representative of MSNBC and their narrative to keep blacks silent who happen to support this president” [Source: The Blaze]
Jones completely schooled Melvin, and Melvin, and any MSNBC viewers that happen to have half a brain, know it.
Melvin’s repeated attempts to interrupt Jones ended in failure. If he has any sense at all, he is likely silently cursing whatever writer MSNBC managed to scrounge up for drafting these questions. Knowing liberals, whoever writes these asinine talking points just may be some anti-cop Starbucks barista with a liberal arts degree and a nose ring.
Unfortunately, the situation with Jones is not an isolated incident. Andrew Duncomb, a Black conservative journalist, was recently stabbed in Portland, otherwise known as the city that doesn’t need the National Guard and isn’t experiencing any violence. As a side note, that message from Portland alone pretty much announces the open secret that conservative lives don’t matter; on the contrary, they should be openly targeted.
Duncomb echoes many of Jones’s assertions, and in a recent appearance on Tucker Carlson, he made the following salient observations.
“I … want to turn this into a message, to tell everybody, that they need to wake up and people need to start exposing Antifa for who they are, which is a domestic terrorist organization who is actively deploying an assault against our democracy,” he said. “They don’t really care about Black lives, they are using BLM as a front to carry out the senseless acts of assault against this country.” [Source: Fox News]
It is fairly astonishing that the Democrats have simultaneously co-opted BLM while silencing Black conservatives. If the Democrats truly believe in BLM, shouldn’t they believe in a variant of BLM, say BVM, or “Black Voices Matter?” After all, isn’t freedom of speech/expression one of the most priceless freedoms that matters in life?
Then again, the Democrats have repeatedly exploited racial minorities for votes, and they clearly have a vested interest in other people’s misery.
Fortunately, freedom of expression still exists across select media outlets, which permits Jones and Duncomb to vocalize the beliefs of the numerous African-Americans that voted in favor of Trump in 2016.
Democrats are likely in for an unpleasant wakeup call in November 2020, which is probably why the demands for “mail in” only elections are reaching a crescendo pitch from the leftists.
