California: Fear of a Black Governor

 

I regret to inform you the white progressives are at it again. The California recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom will be held Tuesday and polls show him with a weak lead. Golden State Democrats are terrified, not only that their Bay Area Gordon Gekko clone will be tossed out on his oily ear but — quelle horreur — a Black man from South Central might take his place. Not being creative campaigners, progressives are playing one of the few cards they have left.

The LA Times called gubernatorial hopeful Larry Elder “the Black face of white supremacy.” A columnist from the same paper said on MSNBC that replacing their peckerwood governor with a brother would discredit “the idea that multiracial democracy can work.” Nancy Pelosi’s daughter waved her white sheets claiming that “diversity is on the ballot” so her fellow crackers need to support Sacramento’s white power player.

Fear of a black governor isn’t new to California leftists. The state has had 40 chief execs, every single one a white man. Can you imagine? Apparently, Democrats don’t think there’s a single woman or ethnic minority qualified to run their state.

I live in the enlightened state of Arizona. Of our last six governors, four have been women. The first governor I remember was Raúl Castro, a Mexican immigrant. (When I was a little kid, his state limo passed our clunky Chevy on the road and I got him to wave back at us. I was so proud, but then again, Arizonans are a tolerant people.)

Racist progs are even attacking Elder in the streets. Early Wednesday, a woke white woman put on a gorilla mask and hurled a white egg at the “Sage of South Central.” You read right — a gorilla mask.

Talk about white fragility. California Democrats are pulling out all the stops to prevent their state from ever having a BIPOC governor, so I expect the intolerance to grow. All the regressive progressives care about is protecting their white supremacist patriarchy.

Forget Jim Crow and Jim Eagle — this is Jim Condor. On organic, ethically sourced steroids.

    When people are afraid they do crazy things.  Should Elder get elected expect thousands of progs to decend on the state building to “defend democracy” or some nonsense like that.

    Kamala is sort of Black, and Obama is, and they are both campaigning for him.  Obama, being lazy, just made a video that the teacher’s unions will be paying to air, but still, see, diversity requires this Wine Country Gentleman remain in office.  We shall see.  I live in California and am witness to his fabulous hair and regard his campaign to be up to Kamala standards of terrible.  But this state is very corrupt and stupid, more so than most of the country realizes.

    How pathetic. Rather than elect a black conservative, they might stick with a corrupt, inept and irresponsible white Progressive. Only California . . .

    I wonder if the Newsome campaign will be have its election night party at the French Laundry.

    Californians really don’t like it when you aren’t what was expected. It’s part of their need for the economy to crawl to a standstill, and for government to have unchecked power over who wins and who loses.

    I hasten to add that I’m well aware there are many not of that frame of mind who, I think, have that old spirit of opportunity within and can’t bring themselves to let go of the enchantment that land cast upon them.

    It was truly amazing how Newsom managed to just pull ahead with the mail-in vote totals. This clearly means that Californians are enamoured with big dictatorial government and…

    Oh, wait. I was supposed to save that for next week. I forgot we’re operating under the charade that this isn’t already decided and that our elections are the most secure in history.

    It strikes me that what we’re seeing, as we always do in California, is what most of the country will become in the near future unless  free states find some way to radically step forward or successfully pull out and start a new country based on the former constitution, neither of which is likely.

    Obama is mixed race.  His momma was white.

    This is a snapshot of what’s to come in the mid-terms and even the next presidential election. Progressives have made everything about race, and this shows it’s not at all about race. If all else fails, physically attack – isn’t that in the Marxist Rules for Dummies? Note the language of the “enlightened” Party…….forget Purgatory – we’re descending straight into Hell fast and the devil can’t make enough room for everyone quick enough. No wonder California is burning up.

    I heard somewhere (maybe here) that the ballots have the unusual feature that, when they are folded and sealed, you can look through a certain part and see whether they are pro-recall without opening them.  If this is so, then enough pro-recalls will disappear, and Gavin has already won.

    Was this debunked somewhere?  Why are we not hearing more about this?

    Good grief, can you imagine the media coverage if a person wearing a gorilla mask, threw an egg at a black Democrat.

    How can these people have so little self awareness. It would take just 5 seconds of introspection to decide to ditch the Gorilla Mask and go with a bandana. Every one in California is wearing a mask already. A face mask and a ball cap would provide every bit of concealment.

    Obama preferred to identify as Black so he could play the victim and the race card.

    Has the Gorilla woman been identified? She needs to be cancelled. Clearly a racist. Sorry, their rules.

    True-believing Woke/Progressives are evil people.  Maybe some are stupid.  None can claim ignorance.

    Theres two holes on the front of the envelope, which if you vote to recall, your mark shows up in one of them.  Coincidence? Wouldn’t bet on it.

    This might be fake news.  My ballot envelope did not reveal how I voted.  But it may be different in different counties.

    I am going to bet a significant number of the COVID dead will be resurrected just long enough to vote no on the recall.

    I believe there is a provision in HR 1 that bans the use death certificates in a registration challenge. Additionally, precisely because a dead person cannot contest his/her removal from the voter rolls, doing so instantly creates a due process issue.

    It worked for Aragorn at the battle of the Pelenor Fields.
