Gutfeld: 'Culture of Victimhood Includes Few Colors, and None Are Blue'
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the recent wave of attacks on police officers and the subsequent coverage by the mainstream media.
"With the murders of the two police officers in Mississippi, we've seen nine officers gunned down in 2015, four being minorities. Those lives mattered too," Gutfeld said.
"I’m thinking: when the dead transcend skin color, maybe it's time to jettison the race wars."
He said that the "grim cloud of victimhood" protects phony victims like looters and rioters while obscuring the real ones like shopkeepers, old ladies and cops.
"The media, more obsessed with racial intent than deadly acts, reveals its vested interest in maintaining a story of brutality that existed in the 60s, but has changed dramatically," Gutfeld said. "To pretend it hasn't is wrong. The police profession has been reforming itself over decades, through outreach, training and recruitment."
He explained to admit police progress, however, would undermine the us vs. them mentality that the radical left wishes to advance.
"So even if a cop is black - like the three arrested in Baltimore or one dead in Mississippi - the hard left uses race as the underlying cause," Gutfeld said.
"It’s why there are no defiant marches when policemen are killed. Activists just don’t see the point. Which is why the culture of victimhood includes only a few colors, and none of them are blue."
