They have always been the real racists in this country.
Democrats proved once again during the Cohen hearing that they are the Party of Raicsm. Totally off-topic, Democrat Congresswoman Tlaib took a shot at Republican Congressman Mark Meadows with this highly racist remark:
“Just to make a note, Mr. Chairman: Just because someone has a person of color, a black person working for them, does not mean they aren’t racist and it is insensitive that some would even say – the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself.”
When challenged by Meadows and Chairman Cummings, she reread her statement, then claimed incredibly that she had not called Meadows a racist! Ohhhhhhhhhh … so you said “the fact that someone [Meadows] would actually use a prop [woman Meadows invited] … is racist in itself.” But you DIDN’T call Meadows a racist? Riiiiiiiiiiiight. “I said ‘someone.’” Gee, that makes it all better doesn’t it. /sarc
Meadows was incensed and fired back:
“My nieces and nephews are people of color. Not many people know that. And, to indicate that I asked someone who is a personal friend of the Trump family, who has worked for him, who knows this particular individual, that she’s coming in to be a prop? It’s racist to suggest that I ask her to come in here for that reason.”
You can hear the whole thing above. In part, Chairman Cummings said he has “shocked a lot of people” by calling Meadows his “best friend.” Let me guess how many of those people are Democrats … 100%? Cuz the Republicans I know don’t judge people by the color of their skin.
Lynne Patton, the black woman in question issued this statement about being called a “prop”:
“Today a race card was played. But not by Congressman Mark Meadows. But rather by those on the House Oversight Committee who sadly placed more credence on the word of a self-confessed convicted perjurer, than that of a highly-educated black woman who rose up the ranks of one of the most recognized global real-estate companies in the world, spoke before 25 million people at the Republican National Convention and now successfully oversees the largest HUD program office in the country. That is not the resume of a prop.”
You go, girl!
