John Kelly defended the President in a passionate speech against Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson. He said that she was an ’empty barrel’ and that empty barrels make the loudest sounds. In other words, stupid people are often the loudest. However, Wilson claimed that the attack on her was racist.
“That’s a racist term, too. I’m thinking about that one. We looked it up in the dictionary because I had never heard of an empty barrel. And I don’t like to be dragged into something like that. The only thing I want to be dragged into right now is getting back our girls who are the victims of Boko Haram in Nigeria,” said Wilson.
The media has also taken advantage of the fact that a ‘white man’ has criticized a ‘black woman’. According to them, this could only happen as a result of white supremacy. Just hear the ridiculous and over the top things CNN’s Joy Reid has to say.
She started by commenting on Lawrence O’Donnell’s speech against the Kelly. “Wow. @Lawrence scorched General Kelly tonight, including calling out his segregated Boston upbringing and dehumanization of a black woman,” tweeted Reid.
“Wow wow wow. @lawrence noted that Gen. Kelly didn’t even give @RepWilson the dignity of using her name.
Kelly grew up in segregated Boston, in an Irish Catholic neighborhood where women were bullied, not honored, and blacks scorned & rejected,” wrote Reid. Disgusting.
