Oops! CNN legal analyst accuses radio host, who’s black, of ‘white privilege’

Yesterday, on SiriusXM Patriot radio’s David Webb Show, Webb was discussing with CNN legal analyst Areva Martin, who’s black, a recent controversy brought up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over CBS failing to hire any black journalists to cover the 2020 election.

Martin said she agreed with Ocasio-Cortez and that it was unacceptable for media outlets to claim that there aren’t enough journalists of color available.

Webb disagreed. He said he has 31 years of experience in the media, and that “I’ve also seen it change, generationally.… I have not seen the lack of [diversity], I’ve seen, actually growth in it.” He then asked Martin if she thought Black Entertainment Television (BET) should be forced to hire a white or Hispanic reporter. Martin responded by saying it would be up to BET.

Webb then said people should be hired based on their qualifications and not the color of their skin, and that “I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue.”

Martin responded by playing the Left’s race card, accusing Webb of “white privilege”:

“Well, David, that’s a whole ‘other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”

The only problem is this: David Webb is even blacker than Areva Martin, as you can see in their pics below.

Webb: “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

Martin: “David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege.”

Webb: “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped. I’m black.”

Martin apologized by throwing her “people” under the bus, claiming that they had given her “the wrong information” about Webb.

To Fox News, Webb said (1:00 mark):

“She [Areva Martin] immediately defaulted to an attack, which is a false narrative. There is no such thing as white privilege. There’s earned privilege in life that you worked for. There are those who may have more privilege that they exert on others in the form of influence. But this is about more than what she said and the embarassment — and she should be — but the default to this easy, false narrative….

But being on Patriot radio with me, and being a conservative talk station, well, I must have been white was in her head.”

Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM radio for hinting at Trump assassination

The implosion, in full public view, of Glenn Beck continues . . . .
In 2010, Beck called Americans who question Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president “dumb birthers“.
During the primaries, Beck touted Ted Cruz as America’s savior — the fulfillment of Mormon end-days prophecy. Beck claimed to know the mind of God, threatening Evangelical Christians that if they didn’t vote for Cruz, they’re not listening to God. Beck even threatened to commit suicide if Cruz lost the pivotal Indiana GOP primary.
All of which led to Alex Jones, in a tearful, apocalyptic rant, calling Beck “a prancing demon”.
Now, prompted by what appears to be Beck’s approval to assassinate Donald Trump, the radio broadcasting company SiriusXM has suspended The Glenn Beck Program from its Patriot radio channel for a week, and is reconsidering the program’s place “in our lineup going forward.”

Breitbart reports, May 31, 2016, that SiriusXM has suspended Glenn Beck and assigned David Webb to temporarily take over Beck’s 9AM to noon Eastern time slot on SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel 125.
SiriusXM issued the following statement:

SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values.

Brad ThorThe suspension is in response to an interview Beck did with fiction author Brad Thor on May 25, in which Thor likened Trump to a South American-style dictator who, if elected, would cause an “extinction-level event” for the United States. Thor said that Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by “legal means” through impeachment.
Thor then hinted at assassinating Trump as a solution. Admitting that “I’m about the suggest something very bad,” he asked Beck’s radio audience “what patriot will step up and do that” in the event Trump oversteps his Constitutional restraints.
Beck agreed with Thor’s assessment.
Here is the exchange:

THOR: He [Trump] is a danger to America and I got to ask you a question and this is serious and this could ring down incredible heat on me because I’m about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer.
With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president.
If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.
BECK: I would agree with you on that and I don’t think you actually have the voices we’ve been talking about and we’ve been talking about this off-air for a while. I think the voices like ours go away. I don’t think we are allowed – especially if things, and I believe the economy is going to go to crap, even if Jesus was in office. It’s going to naturally reset. It has to.

After receiving criticism for what he and Thor said, Beck defended himself. You can read the full transcript of his defense here.
