Sunny Hostin Lectures ‘Despicable’ Aaron Rodgers for Criticizing ‘Woke’ Left Mob

The View host Sunny Hostin scolded Green Bay Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers for criticizing the “woke” left this week. The offended left-wing host claimed the term shouldn’t be mocked because being “woke” was actually a virtue.

The show hosts were discussing the NFL player contracting COVID and revealing he was unvaccinated after sitting out Sunday’s game. In a podcast appearance, Rodgers pushed back against the “woke mob” for pushing for his cancellation from sponsorships and the excessive media criticism of him, while other high profile athletes have also been silent on their status. But those comments earned him the ire of View host Sunny Hostin, (who also recently went after CNN for using “woke” pejoratively.) “Tolerant” leftists want to punish anyone who mocks their totalitarian impulses.

She complained that State Farm hadn’t “done the right thing” and canceled him as an ambassador yet: 

I think we need good corporate citizens in the time of a public health crisis to stand up and do the right thing, and stand up and say that he did not do the right thing because you have another company like Prevea Health that parted ways with him, and that is how I think you make real change. I’m disappointed in State Farm.

Hostin then scolded the football player for his “despicable,” “disgusting” criticism of woke leftists (who were only more enlightened than the rest of us, after all):

I think Aaron Rodgers needs to realize that when you look in the dictionary, ‘woke’ as an adjective means you’re alert to racial prejudice and discrimination. And it’s something that originated in the African-American community, and he should, you know, using it in that way, is despicable and very dismissive to the origin of the term, and he also quoted MLK, and he quoted Martin Luther King’s speech — letter from a Birmingham jail, and I think that’s pretty disgusting, and I wonder what the other players that he is supposed to be leading in the position of a quarterback feel about that. 

The View host has frequently bristled at criticism of the harsh, far left. She often criticizes the term “cancel culture,” preferring to use euphemisms like “accountability” or “consequence culture” instead. Her own woke politics actually cropped up later in the show with Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che. Hostin and Che suggested American flags were racist symbols that made black people feel unwelcome. One has to wonder how all the black veterans who fought to defend that flag, feel about that sentiment. 

Talking about Che’s comedy special, Hostin raved over his commentary about feeling like a “visitor” as a black man in America. She asked him what he meant by that. Che said he felt like the law didn’t treat him justly but he also felt persecuted when he visited certain neighborhoods.

“You talked about a lot of — you don’t walk into an area and there are a lot of American flags, and you’re, like,” she prodded.

“If you see a lot of American flags as a black man, you’re, like, oh, Lord,” Che said, alarmed. Hostin agreed: “I mentioned that on this show and I got so much hate on Twitter!

“It’s true. You’ve never seen an American flag in the black neighborhood. You’ll see more Puerto Rican flags in a black neighborhood,” Che said to Hostin’s agreement.

And she wonders why the average person finds the woke left, obnoxious and mockable?

The View

SUNNY HOSTIN: I think that what’s been very disappointing for me is companies like State Farm who, who– issued a statement basically saying that they aren’t going to um, stop having Aaron Rodgers be their brand representative, and um they said that Aaron Rodgers ‘has been a great ambassador for our company for much of the past decade. While we don’t support some of the statements that he has made, we respect his right to have his own personal point of view.’ 

JOY BEHAR: Meanwhile they’re advising people to get the vaccine. So they want it both ways.

HOSTIN: They want it both ways, and I think we need good corporate citizens in the time of a public health crisis to stand up and do the right thing, and stand up and say that he did not do the right thing because you have another company like Prevea Health that parted ways with 

him, and that is how I think you make real change. I’m disappointed in State Farm. I’m also disappointed in Aaron Rodgers of course, for all those reasons, but to also sort of claim he’s being canceled and the use of the word ‘woke.’ 

BEHAR: Right. 

HOSTIN: I think Aaron Rodgers needs to realize that when you look in the dictionary, ‘woke’ as an adjective means you’re alert to racial prejudice and discrimination. And it’s something that originated in the African-American community, and he should, you know, using it in that way, is despicable and very dismissive to the origin of the term, and he also quoted MLK, and he quoted Martin Luther King’s speech — letter from a Birmingham jail, and I think that’s pretty disgusting, and I wonder what the other players that he is supposed to be leading in the position of a quarterback feel about that. 

BEHAR: But is he going to continue to be a football player?

HOSTIN: Well, of course he is!
