Ocasio: Trump Supporters Aren’t Educated Enough To Recognize They Are Racist



Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) went back on Crooked Media’s Pod Save America where she was asked whether she really believes that Trump supporters are racists. She blathered on and on, starting out with the point that if you ask someone if they are racist it is a trap. But when she wound down, she warmed to the idea that many of Trump’s supporters don’t believe they are racist, but that’s only because they aren’t sufficiently woke.

“I don’t necessarily want to vilify people who vote for Trump but at the same time you also need to call racism out,” host Jon Favreau said. “The biggest mistake that we have, and it’s a trap that’s set by the right whether intentionally or unintentionally, is just the frame of asking ‘Is blank racist?’” Ocasio-Cortez replied. She continued, “It’s not about asking whether Trump voters are racist. We need to talk about racism, not racists.” So dumb it truly hurts.

“Trump relied on a coalition and a core part of that coalition were racists building a coalition with all sorts of other people that could be susceptible to racist views if they were blanketed and layered and made people feel good about it not being a racist thing,” AOC said. She added, “And so there are a lot of people support Trump that genuinely don’t believe that they are racist because we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism.”

“And because we do not do that it just allows itself to just—we get caught in this debate of is something racist, and then a person uses their defensiveness and they say ‘Well, it’s not racist because I’m not racist and I believe this thing because it’s economic in nature.’”

So, we (meaning white people and Trump supporters) are all brain-washed racists according to this Marxist nitwit. None of us can think for ourselves and AOC has to educate and save us. Not this lifetime or ever.

From HotAir:

“She starts by saying not all of Trump’s supporters are racist but she ends saying if Trump’s supporters were sufficiently educated (by the woke left) they wouldn’t deny that they are racist by pointing to things like economic factors.

“As AOC sees it, anyone who denies being a racist is simply taking a convenient out, i.e. making an excuse. Because the only correct answer is that racism is responsible for everything Trump supporters believe.

“The comparison here isn’t to other political views but to religious ones. Racism is the intersectional equivalent of original sin. Everyone is guilty and if they deny it that just proves they are far from salvation. The solution is the Great Awokening, i.e. people are spontaneously overcome with the conviction of their own sin and make a confession.

“In fact, earlier in this clip, AOC specifically says that white people are the demographic who need to get woke: “It’s going to take a lot of white people. We need white people right now to do the work…It’s white people talking to other white people about race. And that I think is a lot of what we’re going to need.”

“I don’t think accusations of racism leveled at millions of people this casually really deserve much of a response. And, let’s face it, the whole game AOC is playing renders any response pointless. As she’s already said, anyone who denies it simply hasn’t been educated enough. And therein lies what I believe is the real reason AOC and others who adopt this viewpoint have done so: They see themselves as the teachers, which necessarily puts them in charge. If you follow AOC on Twitter you may have noticed that she only has two modes: Accusing and teaching. In fact, her social media motto seems to always be teaching. She is never the learner and that’s true even when she clearly doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

“You see the same dynamic with the students at Evergreen State College where a bunch of woke 19 and 20-year-olds were confident they should be educating the entire faculty. It’s a viewpoint that appeals to a lot of people who want to be in charge of what everyone does (see the Green New Deal) without having to do much or know much about anything in particular.”

He’s right – it doesn’t deserve a response… except that people are buying into it and the whole flaming country could tip over into communism because of people like AOC. Ignore her at your own peril. AOC’s philosophy is death on a cracker to freedom-loving Americans.

And in a truly elitist viewpoint, she thinks anyone who supports President Trump is an idiot and a racist. They are beneath her. Well, that rabble she looks down upon will reelect Trump and hopefully run her out of office. Then she can be woke all she wants to be.

Blasey Ford’s Friend: I Was Threatened With ‘Smear Campaign’ If I Didn’t Back Kavanaugh Story



Color me shocked. Actual journalism and the uncovering of facts are coming out over the book written by two New York Times journalists as a hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and you will never believe where it is coming from… CBS. They claim to have the “real bombshell” the Times’ initial report missed. And they are right.

The long-time “close friend” of Christine Blasey Ford, who Ford named as a potential witness to the alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh back in high school, not only says she does not believe Ford’s accusation, but told the FBI that allies of Ford threatened her with a smear campaign to change her story. How vile is that? No wonder they are no longer friends. Because she would not lie for Blasey Ford and the left they threatened to take her out. So typical.

From The Daily Wire:

“Leland Keyser, a long-time “close friend” of Ford, is one of four people Ford named as supposedly being at the alleged party where she said Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her. In its report Monday, CBS Evening News notes that with Keyser’s first public statements on her friend’s allegations, which she gave in an interview with Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, all four of the people Ford claims were at the party now flatly deny that it ever happened.

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Keyser also says that Ford’s allies attempted to pressure her to change the story, telling the FBI that those allies even threatened to mount a smear campaign against her if she didn’t — a claim previously revealed by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino in their book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”

“In a tweet Monday promoting the CBS report, CBS’s Jan Crawford underscored the “real bombshell” highlighted by the network (h/t Ed Morrissey): “We report tonight the real bombshell: Christine Ford’s close HS friend (who Ford says was at the party when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her) said Ford’s story is not believable and told the FBI Ford’s allies pressured her, threatened her with a smear campaign to say otherwise.”

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Hemingway and Severino’s book, which was published in July but largely ignored by the media, unlike the new Times reporters’ book, referenced the alleged attempt to pressure Keyser. In a report for The Federalist Monday, Hemingway summarized the revelations in their book that the Times reporters confirmed and elaborated upon:

The authors also acknowledge what had previously been reported in “Justice on Trial,” about the efforts of mutual friends to get her to change her testimony to be more supportive of Blasey Ford. The reporters say that some of Blasey Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

A group text was formed in which friends such as Cheryl Amitay and Lulu Gonella discussed how to get her to say something more helpful to the cause. An unnamed man on the text suggested that they defame her as an addict. Keyser has been in recovery for some time, as her friends know and as has previously been reported.

Amitay answered, “Leland is a major stumbling block.” While asserting she didn’t want her to make anything up out of whole cloth, she offered ideas for things that could sound supportive of Ford’s story, such as that she’d been in similar situations with Blasey Ford that summer.

“I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the reporters, a stunning admission of the pressure to which she was subjected to by Blasey Ford’s allies.

Keyser said that Blasey Ford’s story of the alleged assault “didn’t make any sense.” “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,” Keyser recalled. “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

On Monday evening, President Trump said during a rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, that The New York Times will “never recover” from its mistake regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh. “They’ve taken the old grey lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover and will never return to greatness under current management,” the president commented. He’s certainly right about that.

This was simply a vicious political hit job to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because of his views on abortion and other matters. But it has backfired big-time as lie after lie has been exposed. The left won’t let it go though and dementedly go on about impeachment over these lies. It didn’t work and it further discredited the media and the left.

No wonder Americans no longer trust the media. CBS should be commended for their actual journalism here.

Kamala Harris Wants Mandatory Buyback Of ‘Assault Weapons’ – Have ‘No Place’ In Society




* By

Democrats just can’t help their tyrant selves. The gun battle is a battle the left will never ever win. No matter how hard they try. The majority of this country is armed.

Good luck trying to pry guns from American hands… It’s not going to happen, Kamala.

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris has become the latest presidential candidate to say that she will force Americans to relinquish their assault weapons.

However, she’s prepared to “buy back” the rifles and “give people their value” for the confiscated firearm, Harris told an audience member Monday at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Harris also said that “we need to do buy backs” when asked what her policy on assault weapons would be.

“Great question I do believe that we need to do buy backs, and I’ll tell you why. First of all, let’s be clear about what assault weapons are they have been designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly. They are weapons of war with no place on the streets of a civil society,” Harris said.

Harris went further, saying that if she could not get the legislation through Congress to ban the further sale of assault weapons, she is “prepared to take executive action” to do so.

“I’ve seen assault weapons kill babies and police officers so, one, I’ll tell you when elected president, if the United States Congress continues to fail to have the courage to do something about this, I’m prepared to take executive action and put in place a ban on the importation of assault weapons into our country.”

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke has also supported mandatory assault weapon buybacks, saying “Hell, yes” he is prepared to take away guns. O’Rourke insisted it wouldn’t be necessary for federal government agents to go door to door to seize guns because he believes Americans will comply with the proposed law.

But that wouldn’t address those weapons that are currently owned by Americans, so Harris thinks “a buyback program is a good idea.” She promised to move quickly on the issue if she becomes the next president.

“And so, I’m telling you, when elected, if Congress fails to act, I’ll give them 100 days to put a bill on my desk for signature. And if they do not it, I will put it in place by executive action a comprehensive background check requirement and a ban on the assault weapons and importation of assault weapons into our country. I’m done.”
