It seems like Democrats want to abide by their own set of rules.
For decades, Americans preached a gospel of tolerance and respect. We didn’t judge anyone by the color of their skin. Everyone in this country should be treated by the same, fair standard, right?
Not if you’re a Democrat. Apparently, Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago believes some reporters should have special treatment. And the others? They’re not even allowed to speak to her.
From Fox News:
Upon the two-year anniversary of her election, Democrat Lightfoot has drawn outrage after White journalists were told by her press office that they couldn’t interview her one-on-one because of their skin color.
That’s right, this Democrat refuses to speak to reporters, because of their skin color. But when a Latino reporter got wind of this, he taught her a lesson.
I am a Latino reporter @chicagotribune whose interview request was granted for today. However, I asked the mayor’s office to lift its condition on others and when they said no, we respectfully canceled. Politicians don’t get to choose who covers them. https://t.co/YMW8M8ZgJm

Gregory Pratt of the Chicago Tribune canceled his interview with Mayor Lightfoot, after her office refused to end her race-based preferences.
Pratt rebuked Lightfoot by saying politicians “don’t get to choose who covers them.”
Isn’t it funny how reporters continue to turn on liberal leaders? For years, the MSM protected and supported Democrats, no matter what.
And they were merciless to Republicans, especially President Trump.
But these days, liberal-leaning journalists are discovering the Democrats were never their allies.
Suddenly, it’s as if reporters are realizing they backed the wrong horse.
After all, how can you defend a politician who is so racist, that she won’t be interviewed by a white male?
Even a child can tell you that judging someone by the color of their skin or gender is wrong.
Lightfoot claims she is confronting the “overwhelming whiteness and maleness” of the press. Nice try.
All she is doing is creating more division, segregation, and discrimination. The very opposite Democrats claim to do.
- Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago refuses to be interviewed by white, male reporters.
- A Latino reporter rejected his appointment for an interview over this rule.
- Democrats are increasingly discriminatory, despite their previous claims.
