If we didn’t learn anything else from the 2016 election cycle, we surely learned that collectively working, with the help of Russia bots and GOP operatives, to find ways to regretfully vote for the least worst candidate, really paid off in spades.
In that light, half of the remaining Democratic presidential candidate are either a racist or homophobe or both.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the one who enacted NY’s infamous “Stop and Frisk” policy. An incredibly intrusive and arbitrary policy that disproportionately affected minorities. Also, recently, Bloomberg described Corey Booker as “well spoken,” clearly Bloomberg must be racist.
“It’s not up to me to be his teacher on this issue,” Booker told ABC News’ Rachel Scott in an interview Friday afternoon in Grinnell, Iowa. “It’s not enough to say, ‘I’m not a racist.’ If racism exists, you need to be an anti-racist. You need to be working every day on these issues.
“Sanders, who surrounded himself with largely white male advisers, has systematically declined to seriously consider racism and sexism as problems in their own right, instead viewing them as outcomes of widespread economic inequality. Unsurprisingly, Clinton trounced him among minority and female voters.”
“Some resistance may stem from controversies back home in South Bend, Ind., over the 2012 firing of the city’s black police chief and last summer’s fatal shooting of a black man by a white police officer. There have also been campaign missteps. Earlier this month, Buttigieg returned thousands of dollars contributed by a Chicago lawyer who tried to block the release of a video in the 2014 police killing of a black teenager.”
Joe Biden’s awkward lecturing of minorities on their parenting, strange recollections of black people in his past: Corn Pop, and his historical compromising with segregationists is part-and-parcel of being racist.
Elizabeth Warren is merely an appropriator of race, so not necessarily a racist, however, her misuse of race, should end her candidacy as we know it, as opined in USA Today.
“Another week, another apology from Sen. Elizabeth Warren for her phony claims of Native American heritage. But the latest evidence against her should spell the end of her presidential ambitions.”
Tulsi Gabbard was an indisputable homophobe, against same sex marriages, and promoter of “conversion therapy”, but has since apologized and says she no longer hates gays the way she once did.
“Rep. Tulsi Gabbard in the early 2000s touted working for her father’s anti-gay organization, which mobilized to pass a measure against same-sex marriage in Hawaii and promoted controversial conversion therapy.”
Andrew Yang is a double-whammy, reverse switcharoo racist by reinforcing racist tropes.
“During the third Democratic debate, Andrew Yang made a joke that played up an Asian stereotype: “Now, I am Asian, so I know a lot of doctors,” he quipped. It wasn’t the first time he’d done so. Two months earlier, during the second debate, he told viewers, “The opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian man who likes math.”
