According to CNN, "law and order" is racist

To liberals, everything is racist, even the mention of “law and order.”  Appearing on Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “Inside Politics,” senior political reporter Nia-Malika Henderson claimed that “a lot of people” believe Donald Trump’s invocation of “law and order” has a “racist undertone.”

She wasn’t finished, however, and went on to claim that the election is “all about race in a lot of ways.”  She backed down a bit, Newsbusters said, adding, “at least a lot of people think that.”

What went unsaid, however, is that the people thinking that and saying that all happen to be liberals who see racism in everything, even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Here’s video, courtesy of the Media Research Center:

“Yeah, absolutely, and that’s what he’s doing. And that’s why you see those numbers moving in his favor,” she said.  “I think, to a lot of people, the phrase ‘law and order’ has sort of a racist undertone. Even Richard Nixon, when he mentioned it in his 1968 speech, he say, you know, “I know that a lot of people think that it’s a sort of a racist term.” It also in some ways I think turns off libertarians. It’s kind of a specter of a police state.”

Perhaps she would prefer to see anarchy reign in the streets.  Or maybe she thinks black people shouldn’t have to obey the law like everyone else.

She continued (Emphasis added):

But, listen, this is a tricky thing. Anytime you’re dealing with race, and this contest is all about race in a lot of ways — at least a lot of people think that. A lot of fear that some people have is fear of Trump. I mean, I’ve talked to a lot of African-Americans who say they fear what kind of country we would have if Donald Trump were the nominee. But, on the other hand, I think Donald Trump is playing into a different kind of fear. So it’s a tricky line they’ve got to balance.

And to think we have three and a half more months of this kind of “reporting” to look forward to.
