CNN Columnist: White Male Rage is Crippling the Country

Each night, Fox News’ prime-time anchors seem laser focused on making their viewers as angry as humanly possible. And the bulk of their audience is made up of white males. So Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity focus on issues that enrage them.

This anger was on full display January 6th when a mob, made up largely of white males, attacked the US Capitol. And according to CNN’s John Blake, white male rage is crippling the country.

The columnist began, “as I’ve watched three separate trials about White male violence unfold across the US these past few weeks — the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, the Ahmaud Arbery death trial and the civil case against organizers of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville — I’ve come to a sobering conclusion: There is nothing more frightening in America today than an angry White man.”

Blake continued, “Political violence is not limited to the GOP. A Bernie Sanders supporter who publicly declared his hatred of conservatives shot five people at a Republican baseball practice in 2017. But talking about assaulting and killing political enemies has become so normal — and seemingly acceptable — in conservative circles today that a White man felt comfortable enough to ask a right-wing activist at a public forum in Idaho last month.”
