Can somebody please explain to me what purpose there may be in continuing to provide Jerry Rivers, aka Geraldo Rivera, with a platform from which he can continue to spew his unique brand of social idiocy? I mean, he very rarely makes any sense and, much like Juan Williams, can come up with some of the most bizarre arguments in attempting to justify his support for either Barry “Almighty” or even, more recently, Hitlery Clinton. The man has absolutely no credibility regardless of the topic being discussed at any given time.
His most recent idiotic outburst came while appearing on the Fox News Channel’s ‘Outnumbered’, when the race-obsessed Rivers, who inexplicably remains a network fixture, put forth his rather predictable explanation for Barry’s failure to unite the country on issues like race, guns and terrorism. Jerry’s explanation? That Americans simply weren't ready for a black president. Actually, if we’re being honest, what America wasn’t quite ready for then, but seems to be far more accepting of today, is a president who is a devoted Socialist.
It was to his female co-hosts there on ‘Outnumbered’ that Jerry said, “I think, and this is just strictly my Constitutionally protected opinion—I know you'll get mad at me but I think this—I think what is clear is that the nation was not ready for a black president. And I think the gross divisions we suffer right now in this country are, when you strip away everything else, the gun rights, terror and all the rest of it—what you have essentially is a nation divided between white people and everybody else in broad strokes.” And, I suppose, the fault can be said to lie with whites?
Jerry then went on to say, "When you look at the groups that overwhelmingly favor the Democrats right now, the Asians, the Hispanics, the African-Americans, the Muslims, you see a nation where people have largely chosen up sides and if you strip away everything else, what you are going to find is a racial divide. It is the biggest, unaddressed issue. I think it is why we can’t deal with urban crime. It's why we are dysfunctional in terms of the ability to be bilateral, bicameral, bipartisan.” This is the gibberish Jerry tries to pass of as a valid argument!
Co-host Harris Faulkner, who, I might add is black, expressed the exasperation of everyone else on camera when she retorted, "Geraldo, it can't just be about color." But with Jerry and progressives, everything is always about color. He did concede that Barry failed at healing the racial divide, but only through "benign neglect." Benign neglect? Barry actively and intentionally exacerbated the racial divide in this country because he just so happens to be the "most racial" President, not the "post-racial" President he was lauded as being.
Look, while this racial divide to which Jerry refers does exist, I would like to ask Jerry how he thinks it came to be. Now I’m quite sure Jerry blames the right, however, the reason it exists is because of the very simply reason that Barry, and the Democrat Party as a whole, see it as making it easier for them to solidify their political power. And something that Jerry very obviously doesn’t care to admit is the fact that it’s the Democrat Party that is constantly trying to come up with new ways to intensify that racial divide and to incite racial hatred in this country.
