Yahoo Sports Calls Trump Pardoning a Black Person 'Ironic'

The left-wing, mainstream media just don’t get it.

To them, it seems, the whole world — including their readers and viewers — is comprised solely of Trump-hating liberals. And in the shadows, like werewolves and vampires, Republicans lurk.


And why do I say monsters? Because we all know what a werewolf is. We’ve all heard of vampires. We know what those words mean. But really, when it comes down to it, we don’t actually believe they exist.

Therefore, the media writes, and speaks, for the world. You know — the real people. The left-wingers. Everything else is just the boogey man. It somehow elected Donald Trump, but we don’t know how.

Therefore, coverage of Trump’s pardoning of black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson — who was convicted by an all-white jury in 1913 of transporting a woman across state lines for “immoral purposes,” was effortless in its reference to Trump as what we all know he is: a raging racist.

As President Trump removed the felonious blight from Johnson’s record, Yahoo Sports called the act “ironic.” Not to mention “as welcome as it was unexpected.”

Because, ya know, Trump hates black people.

And yet, he did what Obama did not. Two years ago, 2009-2015’s Attorney General Eric Holder told WPIX in New York:


“Jack Johnson no question was convicted unfairly. That might be a historical injustice that might need to be rethought.”

Nevertheless, Holder said, domestic abuse accusations against Johnson made pardoning him difficult.

Unproven allegations of one crime prevent the exoneration of another someone didn’t commit?

To Holder, yes. Where was the media outrage?

It was nowhere, just as vitriol for Trump is everywhere. Consider the opening line of the article:

“There is a particular irony in the fact that it took President Donald Trump, hardly a champion of rights for African-Americans and other racial minorities, to be the one who pardoned former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson.”


“Hardly a champion.”

And to the Left, surely, this pardon changes nothing about the President.

Nor does it about you, the reader. Do you hate Trump? To the media, you are Trump. Only you’re invisible, no doubt hiding in your cape, waiting to howl at the moon when no one’s around.

You are hardly a champion of rights for black people. Because you are conservative. And the news isn’t written for you. The news, rather, has written you off.


Meanwhile, Obama pardoned:

Nevertheless, carry on,  monsters.
