On the latest episode of "Fearless," BlazeTV host Jason Whitlock took Wisconsin U.S. Sens Tammy Baldwin (D) and Ron Johnson (R) to task for their joint statement asking outside sources not to analyze the Waukesha parade massacre through a political lens.
"It has come to our attention that outside individuals or groups may attempt to exploit the tragedy that occurred last Sunday in Waukesha for their own political purposes. As the U.S. Senators representing Wisconsin, one from each political party, we are asking anyone considering such action to cease and desist," Baldwin and Johnson said in the statement released on Saturday.
Jason called the senators' statement "pointless," noting that it was reportedly written in response to criticism that the corporate media is downplaying the tragedy because it doesn't fit the left's predetermined narrative regarding "black culture."
"The Baldwin-Johnson statement is not only pointless. It’s clueless. It epitomizes the kind of cowardly leadership pervasive in American politics. The statement is a virtue signal that pretends diplomacy is the antidote for wickedness, that peace is possible with people who have no regard for objective truth," Jason said.
"Why should Waukesha be exempt from the political examination lens applied to everything else? Would ignoring the political implications of the alleged crimes of Darrell E. Brooks jump-start the cleansing of American politics?" he asked.
"I think just the opposite. Failing to fully publicly explore and explain what drove Brooks to commit mass murder would only allow the evil to further metastasize."
Jason went on to argue that the Waukesha tragedy suspect, Darrell Brooks, was a product of Democratic talking points and policies.
"This isn’t about settling a score between conservatives and liberals. It’s about assessing the cost of mainstreaming and normalizing critical race theory and gangsta-rap-culture across our primary communication and information platforms. Darrell Brooks appears to be a direct reflection of what the American zeitgeist ... says a black man should be: angry, emotional, profane, violent, racist, and criminal," Jason said.
"The Waukesha massacre needs to be politicized. The racist political strategy of the Democratic Party helped radicalize Darrell Brooks. The Democrats told black people a government check could replace the black father. The Democrats tell black people the matriarchy is better than the patriarchy. The Democrats tell black people to see themselves as perpetual victims of an irredeemably racist country rather than as conquerors of America’s sins. The Democrats tell black people to abandon our religious beliefs in pursuit of political power. The Democrats convinced black people that obedience to Barack Obama could do more for us than obedience to God. The Democrats tell us to treat skin color and sexual preference as idols more important than our identity in Christ," he continued.
Jason went on to blast political leaders, corporate media, and "other gatekeepers of black culture” for trying to "avoid accountability for what they created."
"I get the reluctance of the gatekeepers to politicize the Waukesha massacre. I understand Tammy Baldwin’s motivation, too. She’s a Democrat. Her party’s entire strategy is predicated on racial deception, hypocrisy, and division. Ron Johnson is a fool and a coward. Like most politicians, he’s unwilling to stand on truth. Initially he had no problem attacking the duplicity of the left as it related to Waukesha. He folded," Jason stated. "There will be no peace until truth is restored."
