CNN political commentator Angela Rye went off on a Republican strategist who dared to criticize Democrat Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, saying “white men who think like you” are the “greatest terrorist threat in this country.”
Rye took exception to the fact that GOP campaign veteran Patrick Griffin described the ‘Squad’ as having ‘hijacked’ the Democrat party. ‘Hijacked’ being a common phrase for people who have indeed ‘hijacked’ a party.
Griffin noted that President Trump should capitalize on the fact that Tlaib (D-MI) and Omar (D-MN) are vehemently anti-Semitic and have trashed America’s ally in Israel time and time again.
He explained that they, along with other Squad members Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have “hijacked” the Democratic Party right out from under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Rye, a typical leftist whose go-to argument is always about identity politics, demographics, and skin color, claimed Griffin was trying to incite violence by linking the two Muslim congresswomen to hijacking.
“It’s so interesting that you use the term — the only two Muslim women in Congress, the term you chose to use, sir, is ‘hijacking,'” Rye asserted.
Of course, that assertion makes no sense when the other half of the communist group – AOC and Pressley – are not Muslim.
“It has nothing to do with whether they’re Muslim or not,” Griffin shot back. “Nothing to do with that … They’ve hijacked from their own principles.”
Rye refused to concede that her judgment had been clouded by ignorance and revealed the true reason she was defending the Squad – because white men who oppose them are, naturally, terrorists.
“That’s a real interesting word choice, and you understand why,” Rye shouted over Griffin. “You can talk over me all you want to but the bottom line is the greatest terrorist threat in this country is white men, white men who think like you. That is the greatest terrorist threat in this country.”
Think about that phrase for a minute – “White men who think like you …”
Is there anyone more obviously full of hate and rage and racism than Angela Rye?
Griffin accurately responded that Rye was using “silly rhetoric.”
It’s pretty astounding to watch this exchange go down on Chris Cuomo’s show. The man was triggered by a spot-on comparison of himself to a weak, fictional character in Fredo, but he’s perfectly content listening to Rye say all non-liberal white men are terrorists.
It’s hard to pinpoint where Rye’s rage generates.
Is it simply a product of being a CNN commentator, where playing the race card is a requirement? Is it because she refuses to accept Trump as her President? Is it because she honestly believes Trump is the second coming of Hitler?

It could be all of these things.
Or, perhaps it’s just a simpler explanation when you get down to it – Rye is a race-baiting, attention-seeking, dime-a-dozen ignoramus propped up by CNN.
