e shouldn’t be surprised that a man with the name Lucian B. Wintrich, a political correspondent for a conservative political blog with an “About” page featuring a watermarked Getty image of a man wearing crooked transitional lenses,tweeted something extremely racist and bigoted.
So, Not Suprised! Wintrich, an actual White House correspondent, really let one rip on July 29, was handily schooled by Twitter, and not only didn’t apologizebut actually doubled down on his crazy.
It’s truly a sight to see.
Wintrich tweeted, “They break into our country, steal resources, then do s**t like this. And libs still wonder why we are pushing for immigration controls…”
Wildly inaccurate, tone-deaf, and racist to begin with, he managed to make it worse by pairing those hateful words with a photo of three Native American people flipping off a giant rock*.
*Sure, the giant rock is Mount Rushmore, but it’s still a rock.
Comedian Andy Richter pointed out the obvious.
He also mentioned that the “comments are fun.”
Come on, boys and girls! Let’s take a look.
This tweet swiftly dismantles Wintrich’s bogus claims.
To break this down: First, the people depicted in this photo are Native Americans, not immigrants from another country. Second, European white folkswere actually the ones who “broke into” this country, stole land from the Native Americans, used up resources, caused a mass genocide, and displaced countless groups of people.
These are among the reasons these people aren’t exactly fawning over that massive presidential rock carving.
Pretty justified if you ask me.
And what! this correction came from a conservative Trump supporter?! Lucian, honey, youknow you’re wrong when someone on Trump’s side actually admits you were wrong.
Let’s hammer this point home.
Much like they hammered George Washington’s nose down to a perfect nub and Abe Lincoln’s chin to a distinguished slant.
It’s pretty clear that Wintrich’s own prejudices blinded him from the facts.
Either that, or he was aware of the anger he’d incite and chose to post it anyway.
Not sure which is worse.
