MSNBC’s pompous progressive commentator Touré attended Emory University from 1989 to 1992, during which time he founded The Fire This Time.
Student newspapers are often filled with lambasting opinions from 20 year olds who know it all and strive to shock sensibilities. But Touré’s paper, which he told The Daily Caller was “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building,” was chock-full of liberation theology, black supremacism and anti-semitism.
If Touré was truly interested in journalism, he might have attempted to study Walter Williams’ “The Journalists Creed,” which contains:
“I believe that the journalism which succeeds best — and best deserves success — fears God and honors Man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamor of the mob; seeks to give every man a chance and, as far as law and honest wage and recognition of human brotherhood can make it so, an equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while sincerely promoting international good will and cementing world-comradeship; is a journalism of humanity, of and for today’s world.”
Studying the content of The Fire This Time lends readers and viewers insight into the worldview of Touré: he praises anti-semites and black supremacists rather than emphasizing content of character. As Dr. Ben Carson said, those who judge anyone by the color of their skin are very shallow individuals.
And based on those that Touré emulates and lauds, it’s obvious that his agenda is to further divide Americans based on bitterness and misconceptions rather than praiseworthy deeds.
