ABC Chief Political Analyst Slammed After Calling White Male Christians ‘Dispensable’

“Time for us white male Christians to take a step back and give power to others, and make ourselves dispensable,” says Matthew Dowd

ABC chief political analyst Matthew Dowd received a storm of criticism after publishing a column urging “White male Christians” to retreat from the national stage.

“Time for us white male Christians to take a step back and give power to others, and make ourselves dispensable,” said Dowd in a tweet teasing his piece.

“I would humbly suggest that we as white male Christians take it upon ourselves to step back and give more people who don’t look like us access to the levers of power,” wrote Dowd.

“We as white male Christians should do what real leadership demands and practice a level of humility which demonstrates strength by stepping back from the center of the room and begin to give up our seats at the table,” he continued.

Twitter critics immediately pounced on the preening tone and asked quite bluntly if the ABC politics chieftain would take his own advice and surrender his choice position at the network as an example.

Reps for Dowd at ABC did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.
