Here’s another Obama cheerleader, Steve Harvey, attacking two honest and principled black critics of President Obama.
His argument that those that criticize Obama, black critics in particular, are people that want to see him fail is intellectually dishonest and politically bankrupt.
He goes on to call a world renowned intellectual and respected scholar like Cornel West and a highly regarded journalist and writer like Tavis Smiley, Jokers.
And if that wasn’t enough, he smears them both by saying that the work they are doing to raise awareness about poverty is some kind of side hustle for West and Smiley. They are both pimping to sell books.
All of this from a comedian.
Whose highest intellectual achievement was to write a relationship advice book.
What a fucking clown.
It’s not that Steve Harvey’s political opinions, such as they are, have any importance or actually matter. The saddest part of it all is that Steve Harvey has a significant sized audience, who are fed the lowest possible level of political discourse and analysis from Harvey with his uncritical, blind, partisan support of Obama and now with his political and personal attacks on two of the most important and relevant political/social voices in the black community.
Cornel West and Tavis Smiley have more credibility and integrity than Steve Harvey could have in 100 lifetimes.
