Racist Democrats Support the Elimination of White Men as Candidates

778

NEW YORK — September 14, 2018

When speaking on the theme of white men as future electoral candidates, female candidates avoid questions and avoid their real opinions on their male colleagues.

  • "They just didn’t fit their quota system."
  • "Today’s Democrat Party is obsessed with color."
  • "White guys have too much privilege anyway."

One media source reported that “A flood of women, minorities and first-time candidates is poised to radically alter the composition of Congress next year after winning Democratic primaries in record numbers in 2018."

"White men are in the minority in the House Democratic candidate pool… Democrats have nominated a whopping 180 female candidates in House primaries — shattering the party’s previous record of 120, according to Rutgers' Center for American Women and Politics. Heading into the final primaries of 2018 this week, Democrats has also nominated at least 133 people of color and 158 first-time candidates to run for the House."

Now, now, let's keep things friendly. First of all, we will discuss black women candidates in detail, and then we'll touch on the topic of the white candidates who are running for election this year. We can note at once that something has changed. This year a lot of women with no previous experience are running. This includes minorities or former military personnel.

There is not much time left before the elections in the US in November. And while we are studying possible candidates, the Democrats seems keen on removing any white candidates from running for office. As we have already said, this is not new in the US, affirmative action policy has long been popular. While New York schools close their doors to white students, next years Democratic primaries have mostly black candidates.

White men are in the minority in the House Democratic candidate pool, the latest analysis shows. Democrats have nominated a whopping 180 female candidates in House primaries -- shattering the party’s previous record of 120, according to Rutgers’ Center for American Women and Politics. Heading into the final primaries of 2018 this week, Democrats have also nominated at least 133 people of color and 158 first-time candidates to run for the House.

The numbers are even starker in the districts without Democratic incumbents. In the 125 districts where a Democratic incumbent is leaving office or a Republican seat is at risk of flipping, according to POLITICO’s race ratings, more than half the nominees (65) are women. An overlapping group of 30 Democratic primary winners is people of color, and 73 of them have never run for elected office before, tapping into voter disdain for politics as usual.

"These grass-roots candidates came out of non-political, non-traditional networks, meaning that they’re running very different kinds of campaigns than we've ever seen," said Martha McKenna, a Democratic consultant who once led EMILY’s List, the pro-abortion rights group. "When a state legislator runs for Congress, that's a formula we know. But when a nurse or a mom or a young veteran decides to run, their campaign looks and feels different, and in 2018, there’s a lot of power in that."

"The way these new candidates will govern will also be different from what we’ve ever seen before," she added.

Now speaking on a state by state basis, in California former state legislator Young Kim would be the first Korean-American woman to serve in Congress, if she can hold a tough open seat for the GOP, while Lea Marquez Peterson, president of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, would be the first Latina to represent Arizona in Congress.

But it was the Democrats' new wave of candidates that pulled some of the most stunning upsets of the primary season — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, both women of color. To clarify, they have now suppressed two other white congressmen in the Northeast: Reps. Joe Crowley of New York and Mike Capuano of Massachusetts.

They have also come out of nowhere to galvanize liberal activists with their personal stories and make some longtime Republican districts competitive by force of personality.

As for others, in Kentucky Amy McGrath, a former Marine fighter pilot who had never run for office before defeated a fixture of local Democratic politics in a primary, is now threatening GOP Rep. Andy Barr in a conservative district.

Mary Ottilie 'M. J.' Jennings Hegar, a fellow female veteran from Texas, also raised millions of dollars online after producing a viral Web video on her compelling life story, potentially dragging Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) into his first-ever tough race in his current district.

Now in Texas, almost half of the Democrats on the House ballot are women while an African-American former pro football player Colin Allred beat out million-dollar Democratic primary opponents to take on Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas). This is, by the way, one of the truest ways to improve one's ranking. And it's worth noting once again, black candidates have a huge support base.

"When you look at this large class of women candidates, it's obvious, it's no longer your average white guy in a red tie running," said John Lapp, a Democratic consultant who led the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006. "These candidates look and sound different from what we know Congress to be right now, so they start with the credibility of being outside of that."

Ocasio-Cortez, an outspoken democratic socialist, came to personify the ideological lines dividing the Democratic Party in 2018. But nationwide, the diverse array of candidates coming out of Democratic primaries had an equally diverse range of views on popular liberal policies currently animating the left, like 'Medicare-for-all' and abolishing U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.

Former Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, a moderate Democrat, won a hard-fought primary battle in Arizona, even after she was booed at a candidate forum for calling for reforms to ICE, rather than abolishment. Meanwhile, Kara Eastman, a first-time candidate, and social worker beat former Blue Dog Democratic Rep. Brad Ashford in Nebraska after running an unapologetically liberal campaign. Ashford, a former state legislator, and the one-term congressman had the backing of the Washington establishment, including the DCCC, but Eastman said she was buoyed by the 'momentum for candidates who want to represent real people.'

"If you think about the reasons for why someone may have voted for Trump, they were looking for someone who’s going to get into Washington and break up the system," Eastman said. "I represent some of that as a political outsider who’s new to this, running to fundamentally change the system."

Tom Steyer, a billionaire Democratic megadonor and potential 2020 presidential candidate, acknowledged that "there's a lot of cacophonies," around the Democratic Party’s direction, "but it's democracy, and it means that people are going to be able to get a chance to listen and make up their minds," he said.

One more major House primary remains for Democrats, pitting Maura Sullivan, a 38-year-old former Marine and first-time candidate who worked in the Obama administration, against Chris Pappas, an openly gay member of the state executive council. Both are fairly mainstream, conventional Democrats, and while a handful of progressives in the race to replace retiring Rep. Carol Shea-Porter have gone to their left, the battle between the frontrunners has boiled down to biography and resources more than ideology.

EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock called Sullivan "the right candidate for this critical moment," but Sullivan can't put away questions about her residency. She moved to the area in June 2017 and acknowledged that she was asked in 2017 to consider running for Congress in Illinois or Virginia.

Pappas, in contrast, has focused on his local roots, touting his endorsements from both New Hampshire senators and arguing that Democrats across the country must "find our way forward from the local level up, so that requires a ground-up operation … that’s how we retake the House," Pappas said. "We shouldn’t be waiting for something to fall out of Washington D.C. to know what we should be talking about [in our districts]."

Republicans have seized on many of these first-time candidates, hoping to personally disqualify them this fall. The Congressional Leadership Fund, the flagship GOP House super PAC, rolled out more than a dozen TV ads in recent weeks, detailing everything from arrest records to sexual harassment allegations against the wave of new candidates.

But some Republican strategists acknowledged that the unprecedented number of female candidates could put the GOP further on defense in the general election.

Female candidates attract female suburban voters, "who are not trending toward us right now," said Mike Noble, a Republican consultant based in Arizona. "Those suburban women are a key block that we’re tracking, and they’re not big fans of Trump."

Are we seeing a case of discrimination in the US against the white population? It seems like the discrimination might also now be affecting men in general. This is not just the liberal system of society, the figures have been growing rapidly over the past few years. While feminists and LGBT activists hold protests against Trump's supreme court nominee, while black people create their own movements for the rights of the black population, and women stand for their rights, quietly and imperceptibly everything falls into their hands.
