In what many conservative critics are referring to a leftist Freudian slip, Queen College professor Andrew Beveridge has attracted attention for referring to African-Americans as “slaves” on CNN, reports The Daily Wire.
Beveridge on CNN
This past weekend, Beveridge appeared on CNN as a guest. The college professor conversed with CNN host Michael Smerconish regarding citizenship and the Department of Justice.
When Smerconish asked Beveridge about the possibility of separate districts, the latter responded with the following statements:
Beveridge then went on to criticize Republicans and potential district shifts:
“I think the sort of the holy grail of this from a point of view of the Republican redistricters is to try to get these people out because it would radically change a loss of districts across the country and it would rural areas but I think it would also help the outer ring suburbs that are largely white, largely citizen, and largely very affluent, also retirement areas would have a much better count.”
Reactions to Beveridge’s Remarks and More
For quite some time, progressives, liberals, and Democrats have faced criticism from right-leaning Americans for what the latter views as harmful policies. Moreover, conservatives have affirmed that progressives secretly view African-Americans and other racial minorities as “slaves” or otherwise “less than.” Assertions that white Americans should consider “what it must be like to not be white” and other similar comments have largely fueled this belief.
Readers of The Daily Wire strongly censured Beveridge’s aforementioned blunder, opining that he mistakenly expressed a genuine belief that many left-leaning American have:
Thus far, CNN has yet to release an official statement regarding Andrew Beveridge’s perceived Freudian slip. Many conservatives have slammed the Queens professor as an example of “what a real racist looks like.”
“I notice that the left is filled with them, but [the] media lets it slide,” opined one reader of The Daily Wire.
Beveridge and progressives as a whole have faced criticism for the aforesaid “slaves” slip of the tongue. Thus far, no one has expressed thoughts on what would have occurred if a white Republicans made the same mistake. Overall, the mainstream media remains silent about Andrew Beveridge’s statement.
