Ex-Trump Spokeswoman Tells Fox News That Slavery Is ‘Good’ History

Published

on


Katrina Pierson, a former spokeswoman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, told Fox News on Monday that slavery is good history, prompting disbelief from fellow guest Wendy Osefo.

Now a spokeswoman for America First Policies,
Pierson made her jaw-dropping comments amid a debate over whether House
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) should join House Minority Leader Nancy
Pelosi (D-Calif.) in pushing for the removal of Confederate statues from Congress.
Pierson first argued
that the monuments reflect history held dear by Americans that’s both
good and bad, thus helping them learn, according to a video provided by
Media Matters.
But
Osefo, a Johns Hopkins University professor, countered that the
statues, erected after the South lost the bloody Civil War, honored the
treasonous.
“While
it is a piece of American history, it’s not necessarily the good part
of American history,” Osefo said. “It’s actually nefarious. So it
doesn’t deserve a place on state grounds. It deserves a place in
museums. And that’s where they need to be.”
Pierson responded: “It absolutely deserves a place, because bad history is still good history for this country ―
“Slavery is good history?” Osefo asked incredulously.
Pierson
offered a reaffirming “absolutely,” touching off a verbal war between
the two guests that host Ainsley Earhardt fought to contain.
The debate over the removal of Confederate statues and other monuments has mushroomed since the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white supremacists claimed they were rallying to prevent the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
