Via the Daily Caller. I am from Idaho, she says late in the clip below. We are so white! I think that mostly explains this ostentatious journey into wokeness at last weeks DNC candidate forum. When youre from a famously white state that routinely votes Republican and youre auditioning to lead the Democratic Party, youd better go the extra mile in reassuring the partys minority voters that they can trust you. Remember, this is a woman whos competing with a former Nation of Islam member for the job. There had better be some serious self-flagellation to impress the audience.
Black lives matter and it makes me sad that were even having that conversation and that tells me that white leaders in our party have failed. We have to accept there is prejudice that exists within our own party and we have to be able to have these conversations. We cannot sweep that under the rug. We cannot continue to hide it. We cannot smash voices down when they are trying to scream, Listen to me, you dont get it.
Im a white woman. I dont get it. I am pleased and honored to be here today to have the conversation. I am so excited that were here. And I am listening. Because thats my job. My job is to listen to the issues. [Applause]
My job is to listen and be a voice and my job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt (laughter/applause). My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, Oh, no, im not prejudiced. Im a Democrat. Im accepting. My job is to make sure that they get that they have privilege and until we shut our mouths and we listen to those people who dont and we lift our people up so that we all have equity in this country, so that were all fighting alongside each other, so that we are all on the same page and we clearly get where were going, were not going to break through this.
Her job, I guess, is to remind white Democrats that theyre racist. Are we sure we dont want this person running the DNC? Sounds like shed play great in the newly red Rust Belt, where many hundreds of thousands of out-of-work blue-collar whites spend their days grappling with the question, Have I done enough to check my privilege?
Shes pretty happy with the attention, though:
Imagine being a Bernie Sanders or Tim Ryan, eager to see the party get back to basics with class appeals to downscale whites, knowing that Democrats may end up choosing between this pandering idiot and Keith Ellison. What if the Trump era never ends?
“Im a white woman. I dont get it.”
That’s the problem, moron.
The democrat party continues to implode...
I hope the dems keep this type of insanity going, and even intensify it. I want them to start expelling white people from all their meeting, and then move to publicly announcing that they don’t want white people to donate any money to them, or vote for them.
Oh I hope that she wins the position, she is PERFECT..left wing white racist who hates her own race..perfect..I love watching liberals self implode..they are SO stupid they don’t realize they are their own worst enemy
Yes, she is another looney tunes PC/MC idiot. Hopefully she really is not this stupid. These damn Caucasian apologists who know zip about who the hell founded, explored, fought, traveled across hostile areas to settle and make this great country what it was and could be again fry my ass.
They are a consistent bunch.
She should move down south for a while.
Her job must be like running the John Birch Society chapter in West Hollywood.
Looks like she’s about 5 years too late in quitting her glue sniffing habit.
I wonder how many members the Dems are going to lose over her.
This will make future elections more Black and White; so to speak.
