Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the darling of the Millennial Snowflakes, Crybullies, SJWs, and all the Socialist grifters is guiding the Democrats further and further to the Left. The way things are going, she and those like her are going to guide the Dems right of the cliff of either irrelevancy, civil war, or some combination of both.
“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”— Nancy Pelosi
To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”
Yep! A glass of water with a “D” next to its name. That how Nancy specifically referred to AOC and her victory in NY’s 14th District. Fucking Ouch! That’s cold.
Pelosi’s declamation was also both fanatically partisan and inaccurate. She utterly ignores the nature of the primary election and electorate that placed AOC in that Seat. Maybe she should have spoken to defeated incumbent Joseph Crowley, a White Man with 20 years of experience in office who lost his Seat primarily or largely because he was a White Man running this time against a Hispanic Woman in a district which became 49.80% Hispanic and only 18.41% White over recent-ish years.
Face it, Folks, when even CNN acknowledges this sort of thing – though they’re careful to make it seem something not too distant from a positive – this is more than likely a real issue.
And Nancy might just want to think about that…

As I’ve written before, hate does have a home within America’s borders… if it’s the “right” sort of hate and being spewed by the “right” sort of “people” and at the “right” sort of victim. Indeed, if the author of the hate is possessed of what our domestic enemies call a “protected trait” the Left will be both quick and virulent in their support for- and protection of said hater irrespective of what they said.
And, Ilhan Omar is their perfect example of such a “protected class.” She’s a “refugee” from Somalia, Black, Muslim, and a Female. I’d say that the only way Omar would be better in the eyes of Liberals and Progressives is if she was a Lesbian, but being both Black and Muslim, they excuse her from the necessity of being homosexual.

As a lot of people already know, CNN’s “Legal Analyst,” Areva Martin recently accused David Webb of being a racist or, at least very much not “woke” while being interviewed on his Sirius XM radio show, “Patriot” while discussing race, job qualifications, and applying for jobs .
I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one,” Webb, a host on Fox Nation, told Martin in the interview. “I never considered my color the issue; I considered my qualifications the issue.”
To which Martin, a civil rights attorney who co-hosts the syndicated talk show “Face the Truth,” responded: “Well, David, that’s a whole other long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of.”
“How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Webb asked.
“David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege. This whole long conversation, I don’t have time to get into — ”
“Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” Webb interrupted. “I’m Black.”
OK! Honestly, that’s just about as funny as things can get. Some professional race-baiting grifter – Martin’s a “Civil Rights” attorney – getting hoist on her own hate-fueled petard is hilarious and always will be so to me. Schadenfreude, it’s real.
Petards Mean Sappers
Funny or not though, Martin’s mistake highlights some of racial problems and problem causers inside America’s borders. We’ve too many like Martin who make a career out of racism and who see everything through the lens of “oppression,” and who – displaying a level hypocrisy well past the border of the absurd – make ignorance- and envy-fueled assumptions about people, e.g., assuming Mr. Webb being White because his opinion was contrary to “Being Black.”
And, of course, to people like Areva Martin and those, such as CNN, who pander to- and enable her sort, “White” equals “Bad.” “White” equals the “Oppressors,” either those seen as active so or merely those who have “benefited” from “Whiteness.”
But Webb Is White
Remember race is a social construct with little to no scientific significance outside of the modern pseudo-sciences of psychology and sociology. Therefor, Mr. Webb’s “Whiteness” or “Blackness” is also just a social construct and social constructs are determined by opinion and bias less than by a specific set of empirical facts
And yes, I make no bones about considering psychology and sociology to be pseudo-sciences. They’re both more of an art than a science and both are plagued by extreme biases.
And, as Mr. Webb is not maintaining the Black Narrative or behaving in a “Black Enough” manner, he’s essentially White. This is because the cultural gatekeepers of Blackness view that as the sin of Respectability Politics, something that they don’t willing tolerate.
Respectability politics is, at its root, the inability to look into the cold dark void of history. For if black people are — as I maintain — no part of the problem, if the problem truly is 100 percent explained by white supremacy, then we are presented with a set of unfortunate facts about our home.— Ta-Nehisi Coates
“Charles Barkley and the Plague of ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks”
And yeah, the Black Enough Blacks and those that make their living off of that particular narrative have names for such people: Uncle Tom, Oreo, Sell-Out, Race Traitor, Graham Cracker, and House Nigger to name the most common ones. But they all mean White or too close in culture and thought to being White.
So, while in one sense, Marin was stupidly and ignorantly wrong, in other ways – the ways that matter to her and her people – she was right.

The best response and American can give to any Liberal or Progressive or any of the ever-angry minorities that they pander to- and enable is, “Stay in your lane!”
After all, the sole form of valid knowledge about issues is “lived experience,” which they don’t possess. Hence, they need to “Stay in their lane” and not talk about the issue.
And, in all honesty, they’re NOT Americans because nobody can be an American who hates – on the rare-ish occasions that they respect America enough to hate it as opposed to loathing and despite – America, the normative American people, and the culture we built for ourselves. As such and following their own “logic,” they should never offer an unsolicited opinion upon these things anymore than they believe that Americans should interject themselves into their affairs.
