Former Republican senator and conservative leader Rick Santorum has been fired by CNN.

He was hired a few years ago to give the right-wing view on things as the kind of token conservative CNN sometimes throws a bone to; yet, he apparently went too far this last time for CNN’s comfort zone.

His crime?

Santorum said insensitive things about Native Americans.

VP of CNN’s Diversity and Inclusion Office Alison Rudnick said Santorum was gone on Saturday as a result of his comments.

What Exactly Did Santorum Say?

Santorum made his latest “misstep” about a month ago at the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), a grassroots right-wing organization for young people. He was speaking about America’s history of immigration and said that Christians “birthed a nation from nothing.” 

Acknowledging the Native Americans who were here, Santorum said that their situation was different because “there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.”

You could almost hear the howls from the left. Santorum said something mean again and they had to have their scalp. 

The head of the National Congress of American Indians Fawn Sharp issued a call for him to be removed from CNN; the call said Santorum is an “embarrassing racist” who bring disgrace to CNN and any other news media outlet which chooses to hire him.

Liberals celebrated Santorum being shown the door, referencing his support for traditional marriage as “homophobic” and saying CNN never should have hired him in the first place. 

“What European colonizers found in the Americas were thousands of complex, sophisticated, and sovereign tribal nations,” Sharp said, correcting Santorum and adding that these tribes had “millennia of distinct cultural, spiritual and technological development.”

Too Little, Too Late

Santorum said sorry later on Chris Cuomo, adding that he’d spoken mistakenly and miscommunicated. What he meant was that the Native Americans hadn’t figured much in early US colonial government, which is correct. 

As Santorum said, the idea he’s trying to “dismiss” what happened to the Native Americans is “far from” the truth and, in fact, the treatment of Native Americans turned out to be “horrific. Santorum said such treatment also goes against what he’s fought for in the US Congress.

Well, all of us who’ve been paying attention are well aware that today’s left doesn’t care what you actually mean; they don’t care whether you’re racist or whether you deserve to be fired. If you’re not a raging neo-Marxist with an attraction to BLM, anti-White racism and pro-degeneracy, you don’t have a seat at the table. 

It’s that simple. 

So let the liberals cheer about Santorum being gone. Less and less people watch CNN every day; nobody cares about their fake moral crusade, word policing, and ridiculous behavior. They should be boycotted by every conservative.
