I think you might be correct on this.Did Nancy actually use the words 'women of color'? I thought she just said "four people" and AOC took the fact that all 4 of them are women of color, whereas it's likely that Pelosi just meant they were the progressive outliers in the party - which is you know, very patronising but not racial.
cerebus, you are so really very sweet. You are like a perpetual white knight. Do you think he gives two shits what the truth is after leveling Alt-Right accusations?I thought we already dealt with this one; it isn't what he did.
I do. She’s smart.Greggypants do you really admire Pelosi quite a bit?
Maybe she can cry about the perceived racism into an empty parking lot. That proved very effective last time.Just when you think she can't possible have any dumb left, she pulls the race card
But, Progressive Democrats are the future. Running on anti-American sentiment, open borders, free stuff for everyone, writing off debt that they do not own, slavery reparations, releasing half of the prison population, and taxing the rich into oblivion sounds just perfect.In other news, dems are so busy eating each other and campaigning across the border to people who can't vote, trump doesn't need to do anything to get re-elected /shrug
It's not white-knighting to call you out on your bs.cerebus, you are so really very sweet. You are like a perpetual white knight. Do you think he gives two shits what the truth is after leveling Alt-Right accusations?
I was just teasing him, and he came out with that beauty. Guess we can't have a sense of humour around here these days.
Well, you know, being demonised as a racist bigot homophobe alt-right extremist simply because you don't want to suck from the propaganda tit that isNothing is ever settled when it's ammunition for your petty feuds is it?
Mmm white-knighting, how sweet, etc etc.Well, you know, being demonised as a racist bigot homophobe alt-right extremist simply because you don't want to suck from the propaganda tit that is
cultural Marxistprogressive talking points tends to work up a lot of fuel for petty feuding, which is incidentally what 99.9% of the content of this thread amounts to.
Like you, I think that misusing classifications of racist, Alt-Right, etc, makes them hollow. If you think that calling someone Alt-Right is petty, you are pretty much doing exactly this:Nothing is ever settled when it's ammunition for your petty feuds is it?
I don't exactly admire Pelosi after her non-handling of the impeachment issue, but I think it's not fair or accurate to call her a racist. You can't just sling around terms like that unless there's a solid underlying reason, or you're in danger of having the terms become hollow. AOC is wrong IMO.
