Mike Pence stood up to a liberal talking head at an ABC station in Pennsylvania on Friday. He flat out refused to put one race above another, no matter how guilty the Philadelphia news anchor tried to make him feel. “All lives matter,” the vice president declared, then carefully explained why he isn’t drinking the Kool-aid.
Mike Pence isn’t buying the propaganda
Vice President Pence completely bewildered ABC host Brian Taff on Friday when he refused to utter the magic liberal phrase. “All lives matter. Let me just say that what happened to George Floyd was a tragedy.” That wasn’t good enough for the Philadelphia reporter. “Forgive me for pressing you on this, sir,” anchor Brian Taff squeezed, “but I will note you did not say those words, ‘Black lives matter,’ and there is an important distinction.”
He was blatantly trying to race shame the Vice President. “People are saying, of course all lives matter, but to say the words is an acknowledgment that Black lives also matter at a time in this country when it appears that there’s a segment of our society that doesn’t agree. So why will you not say those words?” It didn’t work. “Well,” Pence carefully responded, “I don’t accept the fact, Brian, that there’s a segment of American society that disagrees.”
Our vice president stands firmly behind “the preciousness and importance of every human life.” That’s only “one of the reasons why as we advance important reforms in law enforcement, as we look for ways to strengthen and improve our public safety in our cities.” He promises that “we’re not going to stop there.”
All of us are created equal
Liberal CNN is totally outraged at the way Pence shredded their narrative. To progressives, “Black Lives Matter” is supposed to specifically mean cops killing innocent blacks. The vice president didn’t get that memo. He infuriated them even more when he used the bill of rights to upstage the emancipation proclamation.
“In this nation, especially on ‘Juneteenth,’ we celebrate the fact that from the founding of this nation we’ve cherished the ideal that all, all of us are created equal, and endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights. And so all lives matter in a very real sense.”
CNN can’t resist pointing out that slaves weren’t so equal until the civil war, which is why they are trying to help start another one. “Juneteenth, however,” they write, “commemorates the end of slavery in America, which happened nearly a century after the nation’s founding.”
Pence isn’t buying into the manipulated media either. When asked about a recent video re-tweet of the President’s which was labeled by liberals as “manipulated media” Pence spun it back around in the interviewer’s face. “When you watch much of the national news media these days, Brian, it seems like they focus more every day on what divides us in this country. I think the President saw an opportunity with a good sense of humor to once again challenge the media narrative.”
