CNN Drops Rick Santorum After Racist Comments About Native Americans

Source: Huffington Post

05/22/2021 02:07 pm ET

CNN has terminated its contract with senior political commentator Rick Santorum after racist, inaccurate remarks he made about Native Americans, HuffPost has learned.

Santorum, a former Republican senator and two-time failed GOP presidential candidate, sparked outrage last month after claiming there was "nothing" in America before white colonizers arrived and that Native people haven't contributed much to American culture, anyway.

"We birthed a nation from nothing. I mean, there was nothing here," Santorum told students during remarks at a Young America's Foundation event. "I mean, yes, we have Native Americans, but candidly, there isn't much Native American culture in American culture."

____________________________________________

But on Saturday, a CNN senior executive told HuffPost that the network quietly ended its contract with Santorum this week. This executive, who requested anonymity to speak openly, said the decision to cut ties with Santorum came after he went on one of the network's shows, "Cuomo Prime Time," to explain himself shortly after he made his racist comments. He blew it, said this executive, and after that, nobody at the network wanted to keep him around.

Not reported yet on CNN, perhaps they're too embarrassed or ashamed.

65. What a closed-minded, entitled, racist a-hole. The nation would've done well too...

adapt Native America values such as respect for the environment and others. There wouldn't be so much blood and war in our history. And as for birthing a nation from nothing...I think the free stolen land from a string of broken treaties, and free labor stolen from enslaved Africans had a huge part of birthing this nation, with no return in value to those victimized.

Not just his views where despite them he was able to get a job, but this guy has never shown any talent in anything he's known for. All he's able to do is parrot the party line on any topic no matter how ridiculous that makes him (and the GOP) look. The only reason I can think of is that CNN hired him because he knew he would make republicans look bad.

They have a right to dump anyone who doesn't jive with their business policies, and their contracts should specify it.

So, assuming their contract specified it , fuck off, you fucking price of shit. Go peddle your bullshit somewhere else.

33. There is so much more that Native cultures

have contributed to the US than place names.

The word "caucus" is Algonquian, so they influenced our politics.

Food: corn, chocolate, tomatoes, potatoes, pumpkin, turkeys (domesticated for food among some Native cultures, as well as for the feathers).

Medicine: aspirin, quinine

Rubber

And many more influences and products.

In US didn't migrate throughout US as other emigrants did. Others went to many places and cities in larger numbers. And their "cuisines" we established. Native Americans migrated more to reservations and specific places.

39. So, Ricky, let's go to the scoreboard........

*Penn Hills doesn't want you - they didn't like the way you ripped them off claiming to live in a $100,000 house and "demanded" on-line schooling for your children while you were living in a $2,000,000 mansion in Virginia

*Pennsylvania doesn't want you - you failed to stick up for the "workers" of Pennsylvania - going to bat for the corporate HQ's who wanted more protection from those pesky 'workers.'

*And now CNN doesn't want you. Imagine - a news corporation expecting truth and insight instead of some misdirected religious screed.

So where now?

Perhaps some 'remote' jungle area in Central or South America where you can set society straight?

Don't forget your "Kool-Aid" packets!

It was totally okay to hire Santorum to carry Trumpís water, and to downplay his treason and crimes though, right Jeff Zucker @CNN?

To me, it seems like he accomplished what he was hired to do.


Zucker really doesnít want people to know how much he likes Donald Trump.

@clearing_fog
CNNís President Jeff Zucker really wanted to talk to Donald Trump a lot more during the 2016 primaries, but he was afraid Trump might tell people.

He gave them debate tips.

Zucker even wanted to do a weekly show with Trump on CNN after the election.

44. "birthed a nation"

by committing genocide on Native-American culture(s). Nations already here and thriving. A new matrix was established with slavery as the midwife of that so-called "birthing" matrix that slaughtered MILLIONS of Native-Americans and slaves from Africa. Bloody birth and now the child is starting to feed upon itself. May not live. Lots of challenges...

All this goddamn revisionist strategy to cause more violence and bloodshed amongst Americans. I sense bannon, stephen miller, kushner, in this revisionist bullshit. Ivanka also if she's not out selling her cheap white house brand.

51. Should have been ashamed.

Santorum is an incredibly stupid comment just waiting to happen. It was inevitable. Anyone could have seen that. What were they trying to do? Get wing nuts to watch CNN? That will be the day.

55. "but candidly, there isn't much Native American....

Öculture in American culture."

Maybe thatís because of the whole genocide thing.

Ya think?

57. Santorum has been irrelevant for years

And has been a fountain of falsehoods and half truths all along. Why the rush CNN?

58. Incan advice still pertinent today

Never Lie
Never steal
Work hard

Many American politicians have failed miserably at these simple tenets.

61. You know what's cool about being Rick Santorum?

He never has to worry about holes in his socks when he goes to buy shoes. The sales lady just measures his mouth.

64. Good, about damn time.

They might be keeping it on the down-low for now because they're embarrassed for not firing him sooner, and/or for hiring him in the first place.

66. Should have figured that out about 8 years ago. CNN has its problems too. Both siderisms over truth.

76. Yeah, Rickie, no contributions to American culture. How do you explain

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floyd_Westerman

Floyd Westerman, also known as Kanghi Duta ("Red Crow" in Dakota) (August 17, 1936 Ė December 13, 2007), was a Dakota Sioux musician, political activist, and actor. After establishing a career as a country music singer, later in his life he became an actor, usually depicting Native American elders in American films and television. He is also credited as Floyd Red Crow Westerman.[1] As a political activist, he spoke and marched for Native American causes.

77. How about corn, Rick?

Helping feed the world sound familiar, Rick?

Just one from an infinite number of examples, Rick.

What have you ever contributed to culture, Rick?

85. Native Americans have no culture, yeah so

why is it since Jamestown/Plymouth whites have been appropriating Native trappings to show themselves as unquestionably American? I mean, the shtick was old before James Fenimore Cooper was born.

93. Historically ignorant

The impact of Native American culture on mainstream American culture is pervasive and well documented.

Instead of canning Rick Santorum, I think they should have stuck him in a quiet corner and watched what happened when he got educated.

But maybe cut his pay.
