In the age of the liberal media, it has become more and more common for them to find new ways to stir up guilt in white people. The latest example of this is a Los Angeles Times article titled “How White and Affluent Drivers Are Polluting the Air Breathed by L.A.’s people of Color,” written by Sammy Roth, an energy reporter.
On Friday’s The Ingraham Angle, Fox News host Laura Ingraham took on this article and exposed what she saw as the liberal media’s manipulation of white people’s guilt.
Ingraham started by saying, “Now the list of what qualifies as racist grows by the day. Gas stoves, English grammar, mathematics, words like “master bedroom” and “field office” — nuh-uh, can’t say them. And now we add to that automobiles and driving in general.”
Ingraham continued by saying, “The fact is, their policies have failed Black America on everything from crime to the economy to education. So now all they can do is try to blame America itself. In the practice of racial grievance, this has become its own subspecialty.”
In the article, Roth wrote, “As a white guy who’s lived on L.A.’s Westside for most of my life, I’ve benefited from the region’s sordid history as well. Much as I try to do my part — taking the train a couple times a month, walking to local coffee shops and restaurants instead of driving across the city — there’s no question I contribute to the inequitable air pollution that Boeing’s study describes.”
He said, “I couldn’t help but consider my own complicity while reading a new study from USC researchers.” It found “that Angelenos who drive more tend to be exposed to less air pollution, and Angelenos who drive less tend to be exposed to more pollution.”
Ingraham further commented on this by saying, “It’s quite obvious that part of Gavin Newsom’s climate crackdown is coming from the “news” media like the Los Angeles Times. With enough white guilt, California can be the climate-crackdown lab for the other states to follow.”
This type of manipulation is wrong and takes away from the rights of American citizens. The conservative values of individual responsibility and American rights are the right way to go. We should not let the liberal media manipulate us with guilt and shame. We must stand strong and fight for our rights and our freedom.
