Conservative sports commentator Jason Whitlock argued that modern liberals impose "mental slavery" on Black Americans.
Whitlock: Liberals are ideological descendants of slave owners
Whitlock made the comments during an emotional interview Tuesday when he said liberals are now imposing "mental slavery" on black Americans, making them "ideological descendants" of slave owners.
"If you don't hold to a liberal position on all issues, you will be expelled from the black race," said Whitlock. "You don't have the freedom. Every other group in this country has the right, the freedom, (to say) I want to be conservative, I want to be liberal, I want to be libertarian … everyone else can do that, except us."
"You have to serve the black," he added. “Black is your religion. The blackness trumps God, Jesus and everything. Your skin color is the most important thing about you … We can no longer just strive for education, freedom and Jesus Christ. That is what the ideological descendants of slavery took from us. "
Whitlock said liberal-imposed "mental slavery" is even more destructive than physical slavery.
"When they take over your mind, they take over your body, your mind, your soul," he said. “They separate you from God and connect you to liberalism. It is the capital "B", that special award that they have given us. "
Liberals are the new KKK
Whitlock made similar comments in September when he appeared at Tucker Carlson's to talk about a Georgetown University white professor who had made a career by pretending to be black, noting that cases similar to Rachel Dolezal only dealt with one thriving "racial complaint" industry could exist.
He slammed white liberals, calling them bigots, and argued that it is now liberals who are hiding under the KKK hood.

“Bigots used to hide under hoods. Now they are hiding under the label of being liberal and progressive – and that allows you to be as bigoted as you want, ”he argued.
Black Conservatives under attack
In recent months, black conservatives have come under fire from leftists and prominent members of the Democratic Party, including Vice President Joe Biden. When Biden addressed a panel of the National Association of Black Journalists in August, he implied that the black community was a monolith.
"What you all know, but what most people don't know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, is that the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things," said Biden.

Vernon Jones, a black former Democrat who campaigned for President Trump in this year's election, was attacked and harassed by Black Lives Matter activists outside the Republican National Convention. Activists accused Jones of being a "house (n-word)". ”
It is therefore not surprising that President Trump received record support in the black community in the November election, an increase of around 2% from his previous performance. Additionally, including Hispanic voters, he won the highest Republican vote in about 60 years.
"Populists cannot expand their base, they rely on a decreasing proportion of old whites" etc etc etc.
