CNN’s Lemon on McConnell Opposing Reparations: ‘Comes from a Position of Privilege, and Probably One of Bigotry’

‘I don’t want to even discuss how simple-minded his assessment is of that’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LEMON: “I just — I feel like I don’t want to even discuss how simple-minded his assessment is of that. To say no one is alive, that’s an argument. But no one minds taking advantage of the benefits they got from slavery and from Jim Crow. Maybe you should give back your grandfather’s college degree, your great, great grandfather’s land that you were given and on and on and on. People weren’t there, but people reaped the benefits from it and that is the whole point of the matter and social programs are not reparations. He is conflating the two and again misleading the American people as has so often been done, especially within the last couple of years. His argument is simple-minded, it’s stupid. I would say it’s — it comes from a position of privilege and probably one of bigotry as well.”
