There are times when I think I understand what the Left is trying to say and do, and there are times that I just can’t. This is one of those times, as I have no idea how anyone could be stupid enough to report this the way CBS News is currently doing.
According to CBS News, “a photo of fire department recruits possibly using a racist hand gesture is being investigated by District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services… [The photo] shows some recruits in a group picture flashing a possible ‘white power’ hand gesture, but the gesture is similar to the ‘OK’ hand sign.”
CBS News’ D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV tried to explain that “the gesture in the photo might be seen as ‘WP’, for ‘White Power’, since extending three fingers is a possible ‘W’ and the ‘circle’ coming off an arm is a possible ‘P’ – ‘WP’”.
DC Fire and EMS also told WUSA that its investigation could “include interviews of everyone in the picture.”
Sometimes, the sheer stupidity of the Left is mind-boggling. We literally had this conversation a month or so ago regarding West Point graduates DOING THE EXACT SAME HAND SIGNALS and some idiots also got all uppity about that too for no real reason, only to try and smear people as “racist”.
And here is where I stand at a cross-roads. I am actually not sure if this is utter stupidity on the part of the fake news media, particularly CBS News, or if they really are just making a concerted effort to make the “OK” hand signal and the circle game a symbol of “white power” or racism. I really don’t know if this idiocy is deliberate or accidental, but by God, it’s still insane regardless of the purpose.
Do we REALLY have to have this conversation again? Do we really have to look back at EVERYONE who has made the “OK” hand symbol? Do I really have to bring up the pictures of Obama, Pelosi, the Clintons, AOC and Bill de Blasio again? Or do I now have to bring up pictures of Chuck Schumer, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Elizabeth Warren and Pope Francis making the same exact hand sign? Do I have to make a case as to why each of them isn’t a racist for making this hand sign (though they are racists for other reasons)?
It’s actual insanity that these idiots would report this as though it’s a major story full of controversy WHEN WE DID THIS WHOLE ROUTINE A LITTLE OVER A MONTH AGO! Is it that they just really want to make that hand sign “racist” because Trump often makes that hand sign? Is it yet another example of the Left trying to find fault and guilt where none lies, trying to be offended by something that no one in their right mind would get offended by?
And as with the last time I covered this insanity, the people in the picture aren’t even making the ok hand sign anyway! Not that it would make any difference, as the hand sign is not racist, but still. As with the last time, the people in the picture are playing the circle game.
This is something CBS News themselves point out at the end of their story (but of course, not before trying to smear these recruits as racists because otherwise, there’d be no point in reporting this):
“The investigation comes about a month after military officials said hand gestures flashed by West Point cadets and Naval Academy midshipmen during the televised Army-Navy football game weren’t racist signals. Officials said the students were participating in a ‘circle game’ in which someone flashes an upside-down OK sign below the waist and punches anyone who looks at it.”
A couple of points here. First, I’m glad that these idiots remember the last time the fake news media tried to do this. At least, their mental capacity isn’t so pathetic as to have forgotten.
Second, I cannot commend these idiots any more than that precisely BECAUSE they remember the last time this b.s. was pulled and still tried to pull it again. This is what leads me to believe that it wasn’t an idiotic mistake, but that they REALLY want to make the ok hand signal and circle game symbols of white supremacy.
Despite the stupidity of it all, they really want to try and paint anyone who makes those hand signs as “racists”. They view dissenters as Nazis and Nazis are supposed to make particular signs with their hands/arms. In today’s age, hardly anyone would be willing to make the Nazi gesture anymore, so the media has to paint people who make a particular hand sign, such as “OK”, as people who are racists and deserve the public’s scorn.
No one in their right mind would think that those hand signs are symbols of white supremacy. Virtually EVERYONE has made that hand sign at one point or another in their lives. It’s why there are so many pictures of various different politicians, celebrities, and just random people making that hand sign: it’s NORMAL.
But one final point I would actually like to make about the fake news that is CBS is how scummy they are. They fully acknowledge the fact that it’s just the circle game and even go out of their way to explain the rules of the game: you flash that sign below the waist and whoever sees it, you can punch. They KNOW that this isn’t about race and yet, make it their mission to smear anyone who does this as a “white supremacist”.
THEY KNOW that this is nothing more than a harmless game from the early 2000s that has ZERO ties to race or anything of the sort, but they just have to try and make this country look like it’s filled with racists. That’s the larger agenda anyway. In their minds, this country is irreparably racist to its core. It was founded by racists, for racists and a racist currently sits in the White House. That is the sort mindset these people have and the sort of outlook they have on this country. But since this country ISN’T inherently racist to its core, they have to make up some serious b.s.
Want a secure border? You’re a racist. You’re white and have an opinion that doesn’t coincide with the Left? You’re racist. You want people to be able to protect themselves? You’re racist. You support Israel and the Jewish people? You’re racist. You doubt the literally incredible story of Jussie Smollett being assaulted by MAGA people who shouted “this is MAGA country” in Chicago during 7° weather? You’re racist. You think black people shouldn’t kill their own children? You’re racist. You make the OK hand sign or play the circle game? You’re racist.
Labelling people as racists is a SPORT to these people. Anyone and everyone the Left targets is a racist and the only way to be forgiven for that is to vote straight blue and donate to and support Democrats during elections.
I’m pretty sure I don’t need to explain why everything about this is utter bullcrap.
Just like I said when the media tried to smear the West Point graduates: this is why no one likes the media.
“Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil on their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
