BREAKING BAD: Bryan Cranston Regurgitates Tired Liberal Mantra That Make America Great Again Is Racist

I like Bryan Cranston as an actor. Let’s face it, who doesn’t think that “Breaking Bad” is in the top 10 of all time series. In the series and in his other roles, Cranston portrayed his characters flawlessly. He seemed intelligent and well- grounded, not one that would easily fall under the spell of woke propaganda.

Unfortunately, Cranston didn’t fall, he dove in headfirst. He doesn’t rant and rave with the wide-eyed lunacy of DeNiro, nor does he apologize for being white, as Sally Fields recently did. Still, Cranston appears as hooked as the drug addicts he supplied on Breaking Bad.

What’s so frustrating about these Hollywood elitist types, is that they take  themselves so seriously. They are convinced that the things that come out of their mouths are more relevant than what you or I believe. So with the built-in platform that Hollywood provides them, they spew their rhetoric while some wide-eyed liberal listens, nodding their head in rapturous approval.

Cranston now fancies himself an expert on slavery and black life in general. In January, he appeared with Bill Maher, who has berated the radical left over the past year on certain talking points, and then this past weekend with Chris Wallace.

While on the Maher podcast, the subject of critical race theory was brought up. Cranston argued that critical race theory is essential in schools, as it examines how race, racism, and the slave trade have affected government and social activities.

Here’s how the back and forth went:

Cranston: “It’s 400 f*cking years that we’ve dealt with this, and our country still has not taken responsibility or accountability.”

Maher: “For What?”

Cranston: “For the history of the systemic racism that’s in this country.”

Maher: “What should we do more?”

Cranston: “’Well, I mean, for one thing, critical race theory, I think is essential to be teaching.”

Maher: “It depends on what you mean by that.”

Cranston: “’I mean, teaching how the race trade and racism is systemic in everything we’ve done in government, in social activities.”

IMHO, The crux of critical race theory, comes down to whether or not you believe it exists. The left wants you to believe that it teaches the most truthful version of history, including the most reprehensible parts. However, that’s a lie. Slavery was a part of our history, a part of it, but not the main concept of it.

The left wants to focus only on the oppression of that time period and to blame every problem of todays world on what took place then. They refuse to acknowledge that our country abolished slavery, while there are still countries that have not.

They’re pandering to the new woke culture that exists. The same people that believe you can change sexes by changing clothes, want young white children to feel like oppressors. The psychological consequences of imposing such guilt on impressionable minds is a lack of self-worth, societal displacement and even hatred of our nation. The left, including people like Cranston, love to portray themselves as noble. They aren’t. They’re creating a chasm between the races that doesn’t have to exist. It’s deliberate. The bottom line is this, CRT isn’t education, it’s division, plain and simple.

When appearing with Chris Wallace, Cranston expanded on his CRT discourse and as a middle-aged white actor, suddenly thought of himself as the purveyor of the black plight.

Cranston, is under the delusion that as a nation abolishing slavery and constantly working towards equality for everyone isn’t enough. To satisfy Cranston and those like him, he wants the nation to wallow in its history, moving past it isn’t good enough.

Cranston whined to Wallace:

“I think that Germany has looked at their history in involvement in the wars, one and two, and embrace it and say, this is where we went wrong. This is how it went wrong. This is why it can’t go wrong again.  I think they have done a very commendable job in doing so, but the United States really hasn’t. You present it and say, well, 400 years of slavery, yeah, but we’re moving on.  No, let’s really discuss it. How did that happen? How did we get to a point where we treated other human beings as slaves.”

Someone, please inform Mr. Cranston that slavery existed in the United States of America from 1776 – 1865, a period of 89 years. Everyone acknowledges that there were still problems after that, but it’s 2023 and slavery has been abolished for 158 years. Also, please inform Mr. Cranston that There are 195 countries in the world today where slavery is still legal. This total comprises 193 countries that are member states of the United Nations. Lastly, please inform Mr. Cranston that the United States HAS owned up to its part in the slave trade and corrected it a century and a half ago. By constantly referring to 400 years, does he expect our nation to bear the burden of other countries mistakes as well?

The self-righteous Cranston then decided to pander a little more to the left. I mean after all; no self-respecting liberal can have an interview without insulting over 70 million other Americans.

“When I see the Make America Great Again, my comment is, do you, do you, do you accept that that could possibly be construed as a racist remark? And most people, a lot of people go, how could that be racist, Make America Great Again? I said, so just ask yourself from, from an African American experience, when was it ever great in America for the African American? When was it great? So if you’re making it great again, it’s not including them.”

“So it’s, it’s to teach us in the woke world to open up and accept the possibilities that our privilege has created blind spots for us, and maybe I haven’t seen what is really happening yet in all my years.”

I’m glad Cranston mentioned blind spots, because he and his socialist, liberal friends are inhabiting one so large, they can’t see reality.
