Jeffrey Lord: Liberals Have 'The DNA Of Violence'

CNN’s favorite pro-Trump pundit Jeffrey Lord frequently insists that racism isn’t at all present in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and that liberals are the true racists, once even making the absurd claim that the Ku Klux Klan was a “progressive” group.

Lord continued to push his ahistorical case in an interview yesterday with Houston broadcaster Sam Malone, this time linking the recent demonstrations against Donald Trump to the “stunts” by opponents of the Vietnam War, including the protest at Kent State University where four demonstrators were killed. He also linked the anti-Trump protests to alleged violence from Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and the labor movement.

“They are violent,” he said. “The DNA of violence is right there with these people and this political philosophy.”

Another American History Lesson From The Tea Party

The Tea Party Patriots are having a convention today to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the movement, and one prevalent theme in the morning session was denying the fact that the Tea Party represents any racist ideas. Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho said of his own election, “You know these Tea Party patriots are so racist, they decided they wanted a Puerto Rican Mormon.”

Another speaker, Jeffrey Lord, a former Reagan administration official who is now an editor at the American Spectator, told the audience that accusations of racism in the Tea Party are hypocritical because it was Democrats who supported slavery and segregation.

Like “historian” David Barton, Lord conveniently skips over some pretty major political developments of the last century.
