Tlaib Attacks Census Director For Not Having Middle East Racial Category

Rep. Rashida Tlaib attacked the Census Director Dr. Steven Dillingham: ‘You’re erasing us.’

TLAIB: “We are rightfully concerned about communities like mine that are at serious risk of being undercounted in the 2020 census. But something I’m particularly concerned about is the lack of representation on the form of people who look like me. Starting in 2015, a research effort spanned years under the previous administration led by the Office Management and Budget, by community organizations like Access and the Arab-American Institute and many others, which pushed to add the new category in the 2020 survey called ‘Middle Eastern North African,’ or what we call MENA. In 2015, director, the category went into the field for testing, and based on the finding, the Census Bureau recommended the inclusion of MENA category in the 2020 census. Despite these findings, however, the Census Bureau announced under the current administration that MENA category would not be included in the census. Dr. Dillingham, do I look white to you?”

DILLINGHAM: “ Congresswoman, I think that if you tell me what you identify with, I think I would respect that.”

TLAIB: “So, director, are you aware that people like me who are Arab, Middle Eastern, North African, have to indicate that they are white on the U.S. Census?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, we actually have on the — and I understand there was a process in deciding, certainly before I got to the census, and there’s a history to coming up with the questions in the race and ethnicity categories —“

TLAIB: “No, they ignored him. Director, the previous administration decided to put MENA on the form, they ignored it. But do you think if I circled ‘white’ category, that would be an accurate of my racial and ethnic background?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, we do not second-guess what you put down there, and we do have a write-in, people can —“

TLAIB: “You are not giving me an option because let me tell you, there is a reason why the recommendation happened. Because circling ‘white’ on the census changed my lived experience as a person of color in our country. Even saying that, you understand there is a difference when you actually have the check-off box. Because the MENA community, like others, relies on accurate census representation for health research, director, language assistant, civil rights laws, and reporting educational outcomes. In addition, it would help address things like crime reporting, director, helping minority business owners get loans and drawing congressional and state legislative boundaries. So, director, do you believe it’s important to better collect racial and race information from census participants of Middle Eastern and North African descent?”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman —“

TLAIB: “Do you believe that?”

DILLINGHAM: “I can say that by having the write-in provision —“

TLAIB: “Sir, it does not have the same impact and you know that. You know that. That’s why the community pushed to add the category MENA, and they did it right, they went through the process and they got it approved. And this administration decided to ignore them and make them invisible again. Right? That is what you are doing, you are making us invisible. Now, the continued absence of this ethnic category attributes to erasing us. We all live and work and raise our families here. I truly believe this issue needs to be addressed and we need your leadership to push back against this current administration lack of wanting to see people like me being represented on an official government federal form that decides around funding, decide how they will treat us and approach health research, language assistance, all those kinds of things. Director, we need to get it right because I am not white. I’m not. And I don’t try to say to others that you should be this or that. But when I sit on this form and I look at it, I don’t see myself represented on this form. And I think that’s a huge issue for people like me, and I need you to do more in pushing back against the current administration ignoring what the previous administration was able to do. The U.S. Census Bureau decided to add MENA and they ignored it.”

DILLINGHAM: “Congresswoman, I assure you that we continue to study race and ethnicity in the options for self-reporting — let me just say — we want your views and were beginning to process looking at the 2030 census.”

TLAIB: “It’s too late because for ten years we will be invisible. The health research, small business loans, we’ll be invisible for another decade in our country. And I think it is wrong and it was wrong to ignore the effort of not only the office of management and budget but the organizations and others who follow the process, did what they needed, get public input to make sure we are seeing finally by the own federal government. Thank you.”

Racist College Democrats Dump Latino President Because She Isn’t Black

The Hispanic president of the College Democrats of America was ousted from her position solely because she isn’t black.

Published

on

The Hispanic president of the College Democrats of America was ousted last month from her position solely because she isn’t black.

Last week, at the end of June, Tikaela Guido was removed from her role as president of the college organization that boasts 500 chapters and 47 state federations. Before leaving, Guido appointed Matthew Nowling, the group’s former communications director, to be vice president because he is black.

As it happens, Nowling accused Guido of being a racist against him. She treated him badly, Nowling exclaimed. Soon calls for Guido to resign began flooding the organization. Not only that, but calls were made for her to never try to run for any position with the organization again.

At first, the Hispanic woman tried to defend herself against charges of racism.

“What I do not stand for is being labeled a racist or complacent in racism. The gross mischaracterization that I contributed to this environment is unequivocally false. Moreover, these unsubstantiated claims of racism towards me have an appearance of being used as a front for personal disagreements, which is morally reprehensible,” she wrote on an email to the membership.

Eventually, Guido did resign and in doing so she appointed Nowling to be her successor.

Amusingly, Guido ultimately slobbered all over herself to apologize for her “racism.”

In an email she said, “I may not be the person that membership feels represents them currently, and I may need to make space for someone who does,” later adding she would “slow down, reflect on my mistakes and spend time with family.”

Nowling crowed about his victory saying any other group may “have been brushed under the rug, and I would have simply resigned and nothing would have changed.” He added, “This is not just a College Democrats of America thing. This is a broader societal issue, and I just happened to have a platform where when I spoke out about it, people took action.”

The wokesters are eating their own, folks.

… And it’s hilarious.

Potential Biden VP Pick Signals Openness To Tearing Down Statues Of Founding Fathers

Potential Biden VP Pick Signals Openness To Tearing Down Statues Of Founding Fathers

Sen. Tammy Duckworth a potential running mate for Joe Biden, signaled that she was open to tearing down statues of some of America’s founding fathers.

“Senator, I know that you support change in the name of military bases named after Confederate leaders,” CNN’s Bash said. “But there are leaders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson who were slave owners, and some people are demanding that their monuments come down, too. So, in your view, where does it end? Should statues, for example, of George Washington come down?”

“Well, let me just say that we should start off by having a national dialogue on it at some point,” Tammy Duckworth responded.

She continued by attacking President Donald Trump, saying that Trump has “spent all his time talking about dead traitors.”

“So, that might be true, but George Washington, I don’t think anybody would call him a traitor,” Bash responded. “And there are moves by some to remove statues of him. Is that a good idea?”

“I think we should listen to everybody,” Tammy Duckworth responded. “I think we should listen to the argument there.”

NEXT: California Erasing John Wayne’s Name from Orange County Airport

California Democrats are moving to erase famed tough guy actor John Wayne’s name from the John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

California Democrats are moving to erase famed tough guy actor John Wayne’s name from the John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

The commiecrats say that an interview Wayne did with Playboy magazine in 1971 is enough reason to cancel the Duke because he said “racist and homophobic” things at the time.

Leftists have been waving the 1971 interview around for decades as proof that John Wayne was evil. But, now that we are in a climate of destroying all of American history, the topic is back at the forefront once again.

Indeed, this time the county Democrat Party is the one making the demands, not just the prosaic and ill-informed, stray, leftist activists of days past.

“The Democratic Party of Orange County condemns John Wayne’s racist and bigoted statements, and calls for John Wayne’s name and likeness to be removed from the Orange County airport, and calls on the OC Board of Supervisors to restore its original name: Orange County Airport,” a resolution, passed Friday, said.

One of The Duke’s comments contained his ideas of who should and should not be running things.

“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he said.

He then added, “I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves.”

The Democratic resolution goes on pandering to say there is now a “national movement to remove white supremacist symbols and names is reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues and teams, as it is widely recognized that racist symbols produce lasting physical and psychological stress and trauma particularly to Black communities, people of color and other oppressed groups, and the removal of racist symbols provides a necessary process for communities to remember historic acts of violence and recognize victims of oppression.”

Wayne lived in Orange County for the last 20, or so, years of his adult life, settling in Newport Beach in the early 1960s. He was also heavily involved in county politics as a Republican.

Flashback Video: Joe Biden Drops The N Word

A 1985 clip of Joe Biden is going viral online where he says the n-word twice in during a confirmation hearing.

Here’s the clip:

Longer clip:

You can see clearly that Biden is reading something, so these aren’t his own words.

That doesn’t matter.

Cancel Culture leftists don’t care about context and intent doesn’t matter.

It made no difference to them that both Washington and Jefferson wrote that they wanted abolition, just that they were slave owners and profited from slavery. That’s why monuments must come down.

To provide the proper context for Biden’s remarks, this was during the confirmation hearing of William Bradford Reynolds who was being appointed as Assistant Attorney General. Democrats had accused Reynolds of siding with bigots and rolling back racial progress. At one point, Biden quoted a complaint to Reynolds that used the n-word twice. –Clash Daily

Sen. Joseph Biden (D., Del.) questioned Reynolds about his handling of Louisiana`s congressional redistricting, where the state legislature initially had approved a plan that created a predominantly black district in New Orleans. But because of opposition from former Gov. David Treen and white legislators, the plan was replaced by one that split the black district and preserved the seat of a GOP congressman.

Biden pointed out that Reynolds was aware of complaints voiced by a key state legislator, whom the senator quoted as saying ”we already have a nigger mayor (in New Orleans); we don`t need another nigger big shot.”

Rogan: ‘News Media On The Left Has Completely Ignored Joe Biden’s “Cognitive Decline”

Published

on

By

“The Joe Rogan Experience” host Joe Rogan said that left-wing news media has “completely ignored” remarks by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden allegedly showing that Biden is in “some kind of cognitive decline.”

“I’m seeing this one thing that I keep hearing over and over again from people on the Left that disturbs me – it’s this concession that what you’re voting for is the Cabinet, you’re voting for the Supreme Court, you’re voting for someone who’s not going to reverse Roe vs. Wade,” Rogan, who made positive comments about Bernie Sanders during the primary, said. “That’s what I keep hearing from my friends on the Left. They’ve basically just made this concession in their head like, ‘Hey, you know, this is what I’m voting for now.’ And the news media on the Left has completely ignored all of these Biden speeches that clearly show some sort of cognitive decline.”

“Like David Pakman, who I respect a lot, he was kind of arguing against it, that it didn’t show his decline,” Joe Rogan continued. “I was trying to look at it in a way that made sense, I was trying to be rational about it. I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe he’s just exhausted, or maybe this, or maybe it’s pressure.’”

“Sometimes people get really tongue-tied and panic under pressure, and words come out all f**ked up. That is possible. But there’s a trend,” Rogan continued. “If you go back to when he was a younger man, that trend didn’t exist. You’re seeing a change. The idea that as you get older you become less comfortable with the media, less comfortable with speaking publicly, that doesn’t jive with me. That doesn’t make any sense.”

Scientist Bret Weinstein, a guest on the show, responded: “I agree with you. I see a decline. But irrespective of what that is, Joe Biden is an influence peddler. He’s not an idea guy, right? He’s the same idea as Hillary Clinton in a different morphology. … How dare the Democratic Party do this to us again at this moment.”

Nancy Pelosi Cleanses House by Eliminating Historic Portraits of Southerners

Comrade Speaker Pelosi is cleansing the House of Representatives of its history by eliminating the portraits of past southern members.

Published

Comrade Speaker Pelosi is cleansing the House of Representatives of its history by eliminating the portraits of past southern members.

Speaker Pelosi had four portraits of former House Speakers removed from display on Thursday, according to reports.

Comrade Pelosi sent a letter to House Clerk Cheryl Johnson ordering him to remove portraits of the four past speakers in observance of Juneteenth, an unofficial holiday commemorating the Republican’s emancipation of the last slaves in the Confederacy.

“There is no room in the hallowed halls of Congress or in any place of honor for memorializing men who embody the violent bigotry and grotesque racism of the Confederacy,” Pelosi piously proclaimed.

The former Speakers whose history have now been whitewashed from the House are Robert Hunter of Virginia, who served as speaker from 1839 to 1841, Howell Cobb of Georgia, 1849 to 1851, James Orr of South Carolina, 1857 to 1859, and Charles Crisp of Georgia, 1891 to 1895.

Pelosi claimed she “did not know” the history of these past speakers until the media told her about it on Tuesday.

“We didn’t know about this until we were taking inventory of the statues and the curator told us that there were four paintings of speakers in the Capitol of the United States for speakers who had served in the Confederacy,” Pelosi exclaimed on Thursday.

“The portraits of these men are symbols that set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry,” the speaker insisted. “Our Congressional community has the sacred opportunity and obligation to make meaningful change to ensure that the halls of Congress reflect our highest ideals as Americans. Let us lead by example.”

Paintings of the Speakers of the House have been hung in the Capitol since 1852 and now included the mages of more than 50 past speakers.

This purging of history needs to be repudiated and put to an end.

Biden: Military Will Remove Trump From White House

Published

on

By

During an interview on Comedy Central’s “Daily Show,” former Vice President Joe Biden said that he has thought about what would happen if he won the election and President Trump refused to leave office and that he believes the military would remove President Trump “from the White House with great dispatch” if such a scenario took place.

NYP:

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he was “absolutely convinced” that the US military would intervene to remove President Trump from the White House if he lost his re-election bid and refused to leave.

Speaking during an interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” Wednesday night, the former vice president made the comment after being asked if he had ever considered the possibility of Trump refusing to concede the election and vacate the White House if he lost.

“Yes I have,” Biden told Noah before the interview appeared to be edited and cut off.

The next frame shown in the Comedy Central appearance was of the Democrat remarking about the “many” senior military officers who had spoken out about the commander-in-chief in recent weeks, specifically the Trump administration’s response to the protests over the death of George Floyd. More

A ridiculous man giving a ridiculous answer to a ridiculous question from another ridiculous man. I find Joe Biden’s comments to be offensive and revolting. It is the Democrats who have made it virtually impossible for a duly elected President of the United States of America to lead the country effectively.
