Check out this audio interview of NAACP interim president Derrick Johnson chatting with SiriusXM’s Joe Madison on President Trump’s recent press conference about the recent violence in Virginia, the midterm elections, and why the country is in a state of emergency. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
NAACP Interim President Derrick Johnson on the President’s comments from Trump Towers yesterday on violence in Charlottesville, VA:
“It’s nonsensical…For the President to try to create some revisionist history, to justify what took place on Saturday, to try to create a false equivalency is something none of us should stand for.
What we’ve seen on Saturday was horrific. We had a woman who was killed by an individual who drove from Ohio and ran into the crowd. You had individuals like David Duke [who came from] across the country to rally in a protest and use neo-Nazi verbiage.
We are in a state of emergency in terms of what’s taking place and the President of this country is facilitating this cultural reality.”
…What we’re seeing now is the outcome of the election process. Elections have consequences. As African Americans we cannot change who’s in office but we can be preparing for 2018 midterm elections.
In Virginia and New Jersey we need to be preparing for the outcome of those elections. Because up until we get back control of this federal government operation we’re going to be subjected to these types of tactics around the country.
They’ve applied for permits in San Francisco…the alt-right, the neo-Nazi activists…the individuals who are seeking to take their country back, in their language. It is not their country.”
Joe Madison The Black Eagle airs weekdays at 6:00 am ET on SiriusXM Urban View (Ch. 126).
