Ginni Thomas, a Tea Party activist and the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, hosts a regular feature for the Daily Caller in which she interviews conservative figures about the news of the day. In an episode posted on Saturday, Thomas interviewed far-right activist and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson about what she called the “race hustlers” who are “in the business of keeping blacks angry” and Black Lives Matter, which Peterson called “evil,” “wicked,” and “worse than the KKK.”
“Who are the race hustlers?” Thomas asked. “Who’s in the business of keeping blacks angry?”
“The race hustlers,” Peterson replied, “are people like Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, Louis Farrakhan—the so-called civil rights leaders—many of the black preachers, Barack Obama, they’re all into keeping black Americans angry and demoralized for power and wealth for themselves. And you have to demoralize a person or a people in order to control them, you cannot control a moral people so they keep them in a state of anger and confusion so that they can use them for their personal gain.”
Peterson then told Thomas about his theory that he explains in a recent book positing that because President Obama “grew up without a father in the home,” he only feels “anger” and not “love,” and that’s why he’s sympathetic to Black Lives Matter.
“Those people are evil, they’re wicked, they’re an agitating group, they’re worse than the KKK,” he said. “If Black Lives Matter was a white organization and doing exactly what they’re doing now, America would not accept them, they would not. But because they are black and white people are afraid, and then they have the support of the president, they’re allowed to bring on destruction in this country.”
Claiming that Obama sees the killing of police officers as “no big deal,” Peterson went on to repeat his exhortation to white people to “stand up for themselves” against the Black Lives Matter movement.
“There’s no such thing as racism,” he concluded. “It doesn’t exist. It’s an illusion. It has been made up by the race hustlers in order to intimidate and control to get that power.”
