Kamala Harris attacked critics of identity politics. Elizabeth Warren insisted that Democrats could be both the party of the white working class and the party of Black Lives Matter while calling the American criminal justice system racist. And Cory Booker said it was time to get folk woke.
At the Netroots Nation conference in New Orleans on Friday, leading Democratic presidential hopefuls embraced the concept of intersectionality, viewing any conflict between economic populism and racial and social justice as a false choice.
I have a problem with that phrase, identity politics, said Kamala Harris, the junior Democratic senator from California, during a keynote address at the gathering of more 3,000 liberal activists. Lets be clear when people say that, its a pejorative. That phrase is used to divide and used to distract. Its purpose is to minimize and marginalize issues that impact all of us.

Wrong. It can’t, but they can waste the time and energy trying.
Sorry Trump is capturing the working middle class.
He will do even better with them, because of bringing back jobs from China.
Next plan, please.
I thought The Great Obola was returning, to lead the Blue Vortex to victory and glory! Surely Princess Grey Beaver could benefit from the wisdom of one so clean and articulate.
Demokrats are the party of everything to everybody. That’s why in every election they get 100% of the popularvote.
I see Fauxohantus has been hitting the crack pipe again.
The dem party is the party of the fringe and militant anarchists. There’s not a decent one in the bunch.
That ship has sailed, Pocahontas. The white, working class is squarely behind President Trump. That won’t change until 2024 when the RINOs are back in charge and squander it all away with their globalist rhetoric again.
No! We’re the smelly, Walmart-shopping hillbillies! Democrats are so smart. ;-)
Here’s another example of Democrat brilliance.
The NRA Says Its in Deep Financial Trouble, May Be Unable to Exist
...two effects that their publication in our favor may have. It will make the left more momentarily complacent, and donations will flow more to a great benefactor of freedom.
My God! This idiot lead side show was a half an hour away from me in New Orleans? I’m surprised they didn’t congregate in Baton rouge it has about the same crime level ? (all of the parishes in between don’t allow the criminal element as the two mentioned)...”folks”??? who used that word often ? hmmmmm
Warren probably has some black folk in her bloodline too.
I don’t know that Pence is really much of a RINO.
“Princess Grey Beaver?” That’s pretty nasty. ;-b
And look what you made me do...Princess GreyPossum.
uhhhh...uhhggg. Ptoey. Why did I write that? Aaaaauuuh. Gross! ...will go and find someone to slap me now.
If she had any black blood, she would have used it for her minority status claim.
But then, indigenous people my be less represented at Harvard than blacks and therefore get more affirmative action points.
...Cory Booker said it was time to get folk woke.
The new definition of "woke" is now "brainwashed"
I have a problem with that phrase, identity politics, said Kamala Harris... Lets be clear when people say that, its a pejorative. That phrase is used to divide and used to distract.
Seriously, Kams? You wanna go there? Divide and distract? Not a battle you can win.
The only thing the democrats can be the party of is the clusterfcuk.
or, on the other hand...
NXIVM: Nancy Salzman and Clare Bronfman ARRESTED (..Clintons Knew About the Sex Slaves)
Ah, the Dem’s are going down that rabbit hole now. So same old same old. LOL. These people are out of touch whack jobs.
The only thing, and I mean ONLY THING, the Demoncrats have is hate. Everything that they are espousing can be dissected and reduced to unbridled, rabid, flaming hate. All of us see right through it.
