Why Isn’t the Attack on Larry Elder the Biggest Story in America?
A white woman in a gorilla mask threw an egg at a black man seeking to become the first non-white governor of our largest state, and the media shrug.
The woman who threw the egg at Elder would find her picture, her name, and everything she’d ever said on social media scrutinized at great length and on the home pages of the leading news sites. Her appearance would be mocked by late-night comedians. Dozens of reporters would be sent out to learn this woman’s story, to check out where she lived, where she worked, and where she went to school.
To its credit, the Los Angeles Times did mention the attack on Elder, although its headline elided the nastiness of what occurred in what smacked of victim-blaming: “Larry Elder cuts short Venice homeless encampment tour after hostile confrontation.” If Elder had been a Democrat, I suspect the headline would have been “Racist attacker in gorilla mask lobs egg at Larry Elder.” After burying the lede — the California paper mentioned the attack in the second graf, the race and costume of the person attacking him in the fourth — the report did say “ape characterizations have been used as a racist trope for centuries.” But that was it, the sole reference to racism in the story. The LA Times didn’t bother to investigate Elder’s attacker, nor even provide her name.
Please do not insult me by pretending that you do not understand the context and history of black folks being subjected to gorilla references. Please do not tell me that a person wearing a gorilla mask who targeted a Democrat would not be tagged as guilty of the most vicious variety of racism. Please do not tell me that progressives can’t be racist. <Source>
Truth be told…
The Democrats are the party of racism, slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and voting against civil rights legislation. To pretend otherwise is to be intellectually dishonest and a racist progressive communist democrat.
It is time to recall Gavin Newsom and replace his sorry elite ass with Larry Elder, the candidate with real-world experience from the hood in South Central Los Angeles.
If Newsom is not recalled, look for $7.00 gas…
We are so screwed.
