For the last 2 weeks, CNN senior political commentator Rick Santorum has been under extreme fire for racist remarks he made concerning Indigenous American individuals and also culture.
“We birthed a country from nothing. I mean, there was absolutely nothing here,” he told students at a Young America’s Foundation event late last month. “I imply, yes, we have Native Americans, however candidly, there isn’t much Native American society in American society.”
The reaction was quick as well as unsightly. The president of the National Congress of American Indians, the largest American Indian and Alaska Indigenous company in the country, called Santorum “an unhitched and embarrassing racist who reproaches CNN.” Illuminative, a nonprofit concentrated on combating the erasure of Aboriginal individuals, accused Santorum of “sustaining white superiority by removing the history of Indigenous peoples.” 9 national civil rights as well as racial justice teams, including the NAACP and UnidosUS, called Santorum’s remarks “a gross effort to play revisionist chronicler using traditional white supremacist unsupported claims.”
Most recently, Inside Secretary Deb Haaland, the nation’s first-ever Aboriginal Cabinet assistant at any kind of government agency, called Santorum’s statements “unfortunate.”
All of the companies condemning Santorum, a previous Republican legislator that long made a name for himself by demonizing LGBTQ people, have required that CNN fire him. However the network has actually stated nothing.
In the meanwhile, Santorum was back on CNN recently as a guest on Chris Cuomo’s show, with the opportunity to explain himself.
The action clearly wasn’t universally embraced within CNN, with host Don Lemon criticizing Cuomo’s decision to invite him on-air. He said having Santorum on was “horrible and also insulting and also I ask forgiveness to the customers that were insulted by this.”
On Monday, a CNN spokeswoman did not reply to yet another ask for comment– for the fifth time– concerning whether the network intends to maintain Santorum on contract.
So HuffPost spoken to all 37 marketers whose commercials aired during Cuomo’s show on May 3– the evening he caused Santorum to defend his remarks. None of them returned a request for discuss whether they fit having their advertisements run on a program and network that invites Santorum as an analyst.
