First and foremost, thanks to ANP readers and commenters for spending midterm election with us, with over 800 comments in the midterm election thread, there is no better a group to spend the evening with.
The much talked about “blue wave’ never materialized, though the Democrats did win control of the House of Representatives, with the Republicans gaining seats in the senate to keep control of the upper chamber.
The results were expected, and predicted, as was the lack of a huge “blue wave,” which turned into a purple puddle, at least for those of us not paying attention to the predictions of the mainstream media. This is perhaps why conservatives today, while not thrilled to have lost control of the House, are handling it much better than triggered liberals that are bemoaning a number of things, incapable of taking even a day to celebrate the gains they did make.
Liberals and the media (same thing, I know) had themselves convinced, despite more reasoned minds trying to temper their expectations, that they would see a huge blue wave that would take control of both the Senate and the House, much like what happened in 2010 for the Republicans when they won 63 House seats and six senate seats to take control of both houses of congress.
LIBERALS NOW ATTACKING ‘WHITE WOMEN’
Silly me, I awoke this morning expecting that liberals would be celebrating taking control of the House and conservatives would be happy to have gained seats in the Senate…… I was only half right.
I should have remembered the perpetually outraged liberals would somehow find something to be outraged about. (Or heartbroken, like CNN’s Van Jones)
Rather than celebrating their gains, we see liberals “literally shaking” in outrage and anger over Robert Francis O’Rourke aka “Beto” O’Rourke losing his bid to unseat Texas Senator Ted Cruz. When I say “literally shaking,” I am not exaggerating as people took to social media to make the same claim, almost verbatim.
The Daily Caller has the screen shots.
That Texas Senate race is where the attacks against “White Women,” started, as a writer for Samantha Bee, Travon Free, produced a graph showing the demographics of who voted for Cruz versus O’Rourke, while declaring “Black women voted 95% for Beto. White women did what white women do.”
Somehow “white women” voting for Cruz, whose father was Cuban born, rather than voting for the 4th generation white American man, O’Rourke, is somehow racist.
Don’t look at me, I didn’t say it, Travon there did! As Twitchy shows us, many in that comment thread pointed out the illogical nature of that assertion, as one person responds “39% voted for the white guy while 59% voted for the minority guy. What’s the problem?”
The attacks against white women do not stop there as we see the African American “senior writer” over at Rolling Stone, Jamil Smith, sharing a NYT article titled “At Trump Rallies, Women See a Hero Protecting a Way of Life,” and attempts to “mansplain,” to use liberal terminology, to white women why they are not voting correctly.
Smith states “White women are a Republican constituency, and in many states they again voted as if patriarchy would protect them. 50 percent or more for DeSantis, Cruz, and Kemp. I am unsure when they will understand the damage that they do, and not just to themselves.”
Others joined him in bashing “white women,” as another African American, this time a woman, puts out three graphs showing the breakdown of voting demographics in not just the Cruz/O’Rourke race, but also the Abrams/Kemp and DeSantis/Gillum races in Georgia and Florida respectively, as she writes “61% of white women voted for Cruz over Beto. 76% of white women voted for Kemp over Abrams. 51% of white women voted for DeSantis over Gillum. White women: What will you do to be accountable to women, trans, queer, and non binary people of color in your everyday lives?”
As a “White woman” let me take a moment to respond to that bit of idiocy.
Nothing. I am not “accountable” to other women, transgenders, queers, non-binary (whatever that means) nor people of color. I am accountable to getting food on my table, helping to keep a roof over our heads, helping out our grown children when we can, and supporting the person running for office that I agree with on the majority of issues. Period.
No one of any race, religion, or demographic has the right to demand my accountability.
If they were so worried about “accountability,” one would have to wonder how four Democratic men facing sexual misconduct allegations, in the #MeToo era, were voted into office on Tuesday by Democrat men and women?
As Fox News reports “House Reps. Keith Ellison, Tony Cárdenas and Bobby Scott, and Sen. Bob Menendez, all came out victorious on Tuesday, despite being accused of misconduct.”
Then comes another high and mighty black woman, saying “White Women. I swear to God. Y’all are infuriating. And before you #NotAllWhiteWomen me (which will get you blocked) tell me you are COMMITTED to flipping 10 of your alabaster friends from red to blue by 2020. It’s not enough to be “not racist.” You must be *anti-racist.*”
Perhaps she should check her own racism in the mirror before opening her trap. This “alabaster” woman is committed to convincing more and more liberals to #WalkAway and more African Americans to join the #Blexit (Blacks Exiting the Democrat party).
I guess white women are the new “white terrorists” because *GASP* we dare vote for what we believe is best for us as families and individuals, and aren’t fond of identity politics.”
