Buck Sexton, the host of the“Buck Sexton Show” said Wednesday that the “organized” left-wing of the Democrat Party cares little about the black community and views them as just a “tool” to help them obtain power.
Sexton said it is easy to see by their non-reaction to the violence in the black community. Last weekend, for example, there were 21 fatalities and more than 80 people shot in Chicago.
He pointed to the tragic killing of David Dorn, 77, who was a retired police captain from St. Louis. Dorn, who was black, died early Tuesday while working as a security guard for a pawn shop in the city during the violent protests. Fox2Now reported that his son appealed for calm in the community.
“The person who pulled the trigger, my message to them would just simply be, just step back from what you’re doing. Know the real reason you’re doing it. Let’s do it in a positive manner. We don’t have to go out and loot,” his son said.
Sexton asked if anger can justify looting and violence.
“Is it justification, then, for gunning down David Dorn?” Sexton asked. He continued, “Does the left no longer think that is worthy of condemnation? Where are the voices on this one?”
Sexton said he understands that emotions are high after the death of George Floyd in police custody. But he said Dorn’s killing will likely do little start discussions about violence in black communities. He cited the Washington Post that reported that nine unarmed African-American men were killed by police with over 10 million arrests in the U.S. last year. One death is too many, to be sure, but Democrats are seizing the moment to sow divisions.
Sexton has long held that Joe Biden is not the nominee that Democrats want to see face Trump in the general election. And for good reason. His 1994 crime bill and its effect on the black community is still talked about. He also just suffered a damaging interview where he said “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him in 2020.
Liz Peek wrote a column on FoxNews.com that encapsulated the tenuous relationship Biden has with the black community. She wrote that Biden, in all his speeches about the unrest in the country, never once mentions what President Biden would do to stop rioters.
“He cannot,” she wrote. “He desperately needs the support of African-American voters, and is tainted by his association with the 1994 Crime Bill, which many see as having resulted in the mass incarceration of blacks.”
