Dana Perino, the host of Fox News show “The Daily Briefing,” might have just started her show, but judged by the guests she already invited, the show will be pretty interesting.
She had an interview with former First Lady Laura Bush on Tuesday, and after she spoke to ex-secretary of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Rice talked about issues like Iran deal, the topic that President Trump will gladly decertify and also about North Korea. Then the host drops the bomb: The NFL protests.
Rice was already criticized simply because she is a black conservative woman, and now she expressed her opinion on this issue without any hesitation:
“We’ve had a long history of racial injustice and trying to come to terms with it. No human society is perfect … Democracies are imperfect. You just have to keep working at them.
We do need to get over this controversy. Whatever the players were trying to do in drawing attention to these issues, it’s gone another way now. And that people have stopped listening to each other.
When you want to lead on an issue, you want to bring as many people to your side as possible. So, I hope the players find a way to make their concerns known, to talk about them honestly. What do you mean by social injustice? How are we going to get there? But to do it in a way that brings people to your side that doesn’t alienate people.”
Rice very clearly expressed her stance that she will always honor the National Anthem and while the Flag is raised, she will be standing:
“Since I personally believe very strongly that the American flag stands for the millions of people who have sacrificed over the years, either with their lives or with their willingness to protest and to be really, really tough until we got better. It represents those people, too.
That’s the reason it needs to be respected. Not because America is perfect. America is imperfect. But as citizens of a democracy, you have an obligation to work towards that perfection. And the flag is simply a symbol of the fact that we have greater freedoms than any peoples in the world. I would prefer to see it respected.”
Ms. Rice said that perfectly.
