From Grabien News:
‘My job is to shut other white people down’
Jan 23, 2017
Candidates aspiring to take over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee met Monday night to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track. …
Democrats must provide “training” that focuses in part on teaching Americans “how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white,” urged the executive director of Idaho’s Democratic Party, Sally Boynton Brown, who is white.
The event’s moderator, MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid, asked the candidates how the party should handle the Black Lives Now movement.
The candidates uniformly emphasized that the party must embrace the activists unreservedly.
“It makes me sad that we’re even having that conversation and that tells me that white leaders in our party have failed,” Brown said. “I’m a white woman, I don’t get it. … My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt.”
It would be instructive to write up how Democrats have over time come to use the word “conversation.” For example, here’s a constructive conversation:
“This is life and death” she emphasized. “I am a human being trying to do good work and I can’t do it without y’all. So please, please, please, get ahold of me. Sally at we-the-dnc.org. I need schooling so I can go school the other white people.”
The Democrats are going start realizing how much they depended upon Obama’s slippery verbal facility for making the ideas of the Democrats sound smart and boring so that you tune out to the words and just hum along with the melody. In reality, as we can see from more artless orators like Hillary and Sally Boynton Brown, the Democratic orthodoxy is dumb and hilarious.
Another candidate said black Americans are now living with “justified fear” of being killed after Donald Trump was elected president.
Raymond Buckley, the chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, told a story about how, in the midst of “grieving” on Election Day, he received a call from his black niece, who feared for her life after Trump’s victory.
“It’s not just certain parts of the country,” he said. “That fear is all across the country. It’s even in rural new Hampshire. So when people say black lives matter, you are damn right they matter.”
Back in 2009 I suggested that Republicans could help rebrand the Democrats as The Black Party, but white Democrats seem intent on doing that to themselves all by themselves.
