The Biden Administration has named Karine Jean-Pierre, an “out” black woman, to take over the position of White House Press Secretary after the departure of current press aide, Jen Psaki on May 13.
The publication also put together some crucial information about the incoming press secretary in the form of five facts that Americans might want to know about the communications officer. Jean-Pierre worked for MoveOn.org from 2016 until the 2020 presidential campaign.
The first biographical fact of note was about Jean-Pierre’s former work with the radical leftist organization MoveOn.org, which was launched in the late 1990s to oppose the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.
This is the same group that pushed for the impeachment of former President Donald Trump in what appeared to be an abandonment of its former principles. Another cause they championed was when they “infamously accused General David Petraeus, then commanding U.S. forces during the Iraq War, of betraying the country,” according to Breitbart.
Jean–Pierre also has a stark history of anti-Israel radicalism, including in 2019 when Jean-Pierre applauded Democratic presidential candidates for their boycott of the prominent pro-Israel gathering, the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference in Washington, DC.
“You cannot call yourself a progressive while continuing to associate yourself with an organization like AIPAC that has often been the antithesis of what it means to be progressive,” Jean-Pierre wrote.
Jean-Pierre said in 2017 while speaking to CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union, that she thinks no one who has been even accused of sexual misconduct should seek public office, even if there is no corroborating evidence.
Nothing has to be proven, but rather the fact that the accusation existed should disqualify them. This tenant seems to have been abandoned by Jean-Pierre since she is going on to work for Biden who has been subject to credible sexual misconduct by former aide Tara Reade.
The new press secretary’s connection to CNN doesn’t stop with interviews though, since she is married to CNN anchor and correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, and is just the most recent in a long line of those with high-level personal ties between Democratic politics and the media.
In addition to the plethora of other conners, Americans might want to be aware of the way Jean-Pierre has added to racial division and fear since former President Donald Trump took office.
She previously told Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time, “I think the thing to understand is that, if you are not white, male, straight, you are — you fear a — Donald Trump’s presidency because there is no place for you in a Donald Trump’s presidency.”
The soon-to-be high-ranking member of the president’s press team later claimed that Trump wanted to put a “whites only” sign on the Statue of Liberty and that the former president was a lifelong racist.
