AP reporter Matt Lee (@APDiploWriter) gets Kendi’d by State Dept Spokeshole (@StateDeptSpox)

My definition of getting Kendi’d is when a person uses a word in the definition of the word. The ultimate in ignorance and/or obfuscation. Like when crackpot Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi defines racism by putting the word “racist” and “racial” in the definition. That’s like saying racism is racism because I say it’s racism.

Racism is a marriage of racist policies and racist ideas that produces and normalizes racial inequities

Well, State Department spokesman, Ned Price, does exactly that when AP reporter Matt Lee asks him for proof the Russians are planning a false flag operation to justify an incursion into Ukraine. Ned Price says the U.S. Government has de-classified information that proves it. What is the information? It’s Ned Price saying the Russians are doing it. There is no actual proof. It’s the government saying the false flag operation is happening because they say it’s happening. This kind of double-speak is really beyond the pale. Watch the exchange. Transcript of the relevant portion is below the video.

Matt Lee: “What evidence do you have to support the idea that there is some propaganda film in the making?”

Ned Price: “Matt this is derived from information known to the U.S. government. Intelligence information that we have declassified. I think you know…”

Matt Lee: “Well… okay… where is it? Where is this information?”

Ned Price: “It is intelligence information that we have de-classified.”

Matt Lee: “Well, where is it? Where is the de-classified information?”

Ned Price: “I just… delivered it.”

Matt Lee: “No… you made a series of allegations…”

Ned Price: “Would you like us to print it out [unintelligible] because you will see a transcript of this briefing that you can print out for yourself…”

Matt Lee: “That’s not evidence Ned. That’s you saying it. That’s not evidence. I’m sorry.”

Ned Price: “[Chuckles] What would you like Matt?”

Matt Lee: “I would like to see some proof that you can show that…”

It goes on and on until Ned Price asks Matt Lee who he believes more the Russians or the U.S., the UK, and other governments. This is a replay of what the Obama Administration State Department used to do with reporters.

There is no proof. We have to believe them because they say so. What a bunch of asshats.
