When Woke Becomes Tyranny By James Reed
Journalist Piers Morgan questioned the rave by Meghan Markle, which amounted to saying that the Royal family is racist, and since she is multiracial, she must be believed. To doubt this is contrary to the New Multicultural Inquisition.
“I have previously admitted to being one of the few people apparently on planet Earth with little interest in the Royal family or the continuing travails of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. (No, I did not even tune into the wedding). However, the coverage is now pulling some of us into this vortex with legal and media developments. One such issue arose this week after Piers Morgan, the co-host of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain who has now resigned from the show,” committed the apparently unpardonable sin of declaring on air that he didn’t “believe a word” of what Markle told Oprah in her recent interview. Markle herself filed a complaint with ITV.
It is another example of how both rights of the free press and free speech are under assault in the United Kingdom.
Morgan has long been a critic of Markle and received international attention this week by abruptly walking off the show’s set in a sharp exchange with a co-host Alex Beresford who criticized his remark: “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this program, a number of times. And I understand that you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or you had one. And she cut you off. She’s entitled to cut you off, if she wants to.”
