Another Collision on the Intersectional Interstate
Guess who crashed the white supremacist's party?
Funny thing happened on the way to the rally Tuesday night.
"There is no Census Bureau category called 'of color.' I am Black.”
The original title and subtitle for this piece was
Who You Gonna Believe? Me or Your Lying Eyes?
Asking us to ignore reality is failing. Please Stop!
But then Tuesday night happened. In military briefing-speak, that is called the tip of the spear. That was the first shot. When the last one comes is TBD.
White Supremacists make public education their priority.
That sounds weird doesn’t it? I mean, most white supremacists I have met are dumb as rocks.
I’ve met a lot of them. I rode their car in prison. You know, the whole real racism thing? You know, the meth-freak-cellie called Skinhead Bobby. You know, the 22-year-old shot caller Snickers, doing life.
You know, the PeckerWood with the swastika tattoo between his eyebrows. You know, the AB dude with three black bullets dripping out his eye.
Or how about the Nazi Lowrider dude that found out I had a Latina wife and recruited me. Glad he didn’t bitch me out.
Not the fake shit that keeps falling out of Joy Reid’s mouth.
Pay attention to Winsome Sears. She just won the election for Lt. Governor of Virginia. She is a heartbeat away from becoming governor. Of VIRGINIA.
You know, the hotbed of slavery. The heart of the confederacy. The land of Dixie. The birthplace of Washington, Jefferson, Monroe and Madison.
Those evil slave-owning white men. The same evil men that formed a more perfect union. Praying that the light of freedom would eventually kill off the scourge of human bondage. (Which it did, by the way, at great cost)
You know, all those white supremacists down there are pretty stupid. They just voted a black woman to the 2nd most powerful post in state government.
They voted Jason Miyares, a son of a Cuban (legal) immigrant single mom to the Attorney General post to boot! Wow, hating people of color like that is so weird.
Do we call that Hating Up?
She is the first woman of color to achieve such high office in a state steeped in the history of slavery in this country. He is the first Latino Attorney General in Virginia.
Listen to Joy Reid describe the historic achievement for the current Vice-President. Surely, Ms. Reid feels the same about the similar circumstances of Ms. Sears victory.
After all, Winsome Sears checks off the exact same Identity boxes as the Vice-President. Jamaican immigrant. Black skin color. Woman of Color. Oh, wait. Joy Reid thinks Winsome Sears is a white supremacist.
Awkward. The only difference between the two is political party. Hmmm. Talk about a mind prison. Poor Ms. Reid.
First, here is Ms. Reid’s report on Kamala Harris. Watch here
Certainly, we all recognize the historical significance of the Vice-President’s victory. Joy Reid describes her Jamaican Uber driver weeping tears of joy over the election of Harris.
Might Ms. Reid gush about tears of joy being wept for this unbelievable occurrence?
Lt. Governor-Elect Sears is also Jamaican. Joy Reid knows that. Maybe she will say a bunch of nice things about Ms. Sears.
Who is whiter than Terry McAuliffe?
During the primary for governor there were five Democrats vying for the spot in the November election: Virginia House Del. Lee J. Carter, Lt. Gov. of Virginia Justin Fairfax, former Virginia House Del. Jennifer D. Carroll Foy, state Sen. Jennifer McClellan and McAuliffe. From USA Today piece
McAuliffe has faced criticism that his bid for governor may be standing in the way of a historic win since three of the five candidates are Black and two are women. Read about it here.
Let’s score the players here by skin color, since that seems to be what one side of the country likes to do.
The Dem primary players:
Terry McAuliffe - White Guy
Lee J. Carter - White Guy
Justin Fairfax - Black Guy
Jennifer D. Carroll Foy - Black Woman
Jennifer McClellan - Black Woman
On the other side, six candidates ran: Puneet Ahluwalia, Lance Allen, Glenn Davis, Tim Hugo, Maeve Rigler, and Winsome Sears. From Ballotpedia
The Repub primary players:
Puneet Ahluwalia -Indian Guy
Lance Allen - White Guy
Tim Hugo - White Guy
Maeve Rigler - White Woman
Winsome Sears - Black Woman
Seriously, one the great carpet-baggers and bag-men in the history of the dem party elbowed out actual “people of color” to slam-dunk the election. Or so they thought.
So big money made the call and they used the Bad Orange (again, so tiring). The titles say it all. The basket of deplorables is back, kicking and screaming. And winning.
A sampling of headlines trigger so many microaggressions, I cannot stop laughing. The entire difference in this election was pissed-off parents. Plain and simple.
Get Your Hands Off My Kids
No poli-sci degree needed. The explanation for this is as clear as the nose on your face. The real issue here is, will you cut off your nose to spite your face?
For many, the answer is yes. We see it. We hear it. We believe it. It’s funny, we have been conditioned that everything we hear is most likely a lie. So when the truth is told, we don’t believe it.
It was a gaffe. He misspoke. Out of context. Inelegant way to express it. No. It was the truth.
Parents already alarmed and sickened over their children’s education reached the boiling point. Check out this leader of the white supremacist movement for public education in Virginia.
Asra Q. Nomani
Asra Q. Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal correspondent, has also written for the Washington Post, New York Times, Slate magazine, and Time magazine on Islam, and has covered the war in Afghanistan for Salon.com. She has spoken about women’s rights in Islam on CNN, PBS, NPR, and the BBC. A Muslim born in Bombay, India, Nomani lived in Piscataway, New Jersey, before being raised in the foothills of West Virginia. Her first book was Tantrika: Traveling the Road of Divine Love (HarperSanFrancisco Publishers), the compelling story of her journey through the geography of her spiritual conflict as she travels from the feet of the Dalai Lama to caves outside Khajuraho, realizing the inner power of women. She has posted an Islamic Bill of Rights for Women in the Mosque and in the Bedroom on her website,
She is leading the parents' charge, and she just kicked some major ass! She doesn’t look like Snickers. No swastika tattoos. Hmm, pretty lame racist.
Here is her calling out some things she found in her kids' school:
The first book she showed, titled "A is for Activist," features an image of an individual in a ski mask. The book was reportedly part of a lesson plan from the Virginia Department of Education for third-graders.
"This is the book that then becomes what our children get in our school system," she said. "And you can see here, this subtle image of a militant. And this is what they are turning our children into – militants."
Other books she highlighted were "Woke Baby," "Gender Queer," and "Not My Idea," which talks about whiteness being a "deal with the devil." Nomani said up until a few years ago, she didn't know who was on the school board in her area but has since become more involved.
"They came after my son's school. They came after the idea of merit and the American dream. I came here as a four-year-old girl from India believing in the American dream," she explained.
Check out her Substack here. Well worth supporting.
Here is another white supremacist pissed off about education. And using her white privilege to oppress communities of color.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali was born in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1969. The daughter of a political opponent of the Somali dictatorship, Ayaan Hirsi Ali grew up in exile, moving from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia and Kenya. As a young child, she was subjected to female genital mutilation. As she grew up, she embraced Islam and strove to live as a devout Muslim. In 1992 Ayaan was married off by her father to a distant cousin who lived in Canada. In order to escape this marriage, she fled to the Netherlands where she was given asylum, and in time citizenship. In her early years in Holland she worked in factories and as a maid. She quickly learned Dutch, however, and was able to study at the University of Leiden. Working as a translator for Somali immigrants, she saw at first hand the inconsistencies between liberal, Western society and tribal, Muslim cultures. After earning her M.A. in political science, Ayaan worked as a researcher for the Wiardi Beckman Foundation in Amsterdam. She then served as an elected member of the Dutch parliament from 2003 to 2006. In 2004 Ayaan gained international attention following the murder of Theo van Gogh. Van Gogh had directed her short film Submission, a film about the oppression of women under Islam. The assassin, a radical Muslim, left a death threat for her pinned to Van Gogh’s chest. A visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington DC, Ayaan is currently researching the relationship between the West and Islam. Ayaan Hirsi Ali was named one of TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People '' of 2005, one of the Glamour Heroes of 2005 and Reader’s Digest‘s European of the Year for 2005. She has published a collection of essays, The Caged Virgin (2006), a memoir, Infidel (2007).
Here is a little flavor of her racist rantings:
Somali-Dutch scholar and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali did not mince words regarding her feelings about critical race theory in an interview with Fox News, calling it a "nihilistic" practice that will teach children to "hate" one another.
Ali is concerned about America's trend toward "wokeness," which she said is all about stoking division.
"It divides us into people of different races and it says that these racial differences are irreconcilable and then divisions along gender, along transgender, along immigrants … It sees no reconciliation, no coming together unless the people that they describe as eternal victims, black people, people of color, women, transgender people, unless they unite to destroy and dismantle our existing institutions. It's a very nihilistic, zero-sum game. It's the worst philosophy I've ever come across," Ali said.
So here we now find ourselves. Surveying the wreckage that keeps piling up on the Identity Interstate. What are we to make of it? What can we make of it? What should we make of it?
I only know one thing. If my kids were still in public schools, I would be all up in this issue. As a parent, it is our sacred obligation to sacrifice everything we have to provide a superior life for our children.
That is our only job. But make no mistake -
RAISING CHILDREN IS THE PARENTS JOB - NOT THE GOVERNMENTS.
Lt. Governor-Elect Sears had a pointed message to Joy Reid. And issued a challenge. Experience tells me don’t hold my breath waiting for that invitation.
But it is worth watching (a million times, lol) a Black Republican Woman speak directly to a Black Democratic Woman, and sincerely and respectfully disagree with her position.
Full Stop: in searching for this clip, I ran across this headline and jumped down the rabbit-hole - again! Damn. Too good to be true
Here is the challenge - quite a bit different from "an “attack.” Notice when Joy Reid is “attacking” 74 million Americans for being dangerous because of their vote, that gets a pass.
When a strong black woman leaves the tribe, and then stands up to said tribe when they personally insult her and impugn her character, it’s an “attack.”
The jig is up, and people of color that left the tribe are leading the charge. Get the hell out of the way.
Here is a bunch of headlines I brought up from all those rabbit holes! Please enjoy.
