(NationalSentinel) Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York did her level best Wednesday night as an “also-ran” 2020 Democratic presidential contender to prostrate herself and her “whiteness” before the PC crowd of Left-wing race-baiters on stage with her.
Only, in doing so, not only did Gillibrand sound like a blithering loon, she continued to mainstream patently false assumptions about the various races and especially white people of “privilege.”
Like when she tried to say that whites don’t get shot nearly as much because of “white privilege.”
“I don’t believe that is the responsibility of Cory and Kamala to be the only voice that takes on these issues of institutional racism,” Gillibrand said as the pandering began.
“I think, as a white woman of privilege, who is a U.S. senator running for president of the United States, it is also my responsibility to lift up those voices that aren’t being listened to,” she continued, claiming that she, and only she, could explain “privilege” to white suburban women voters who cast ballots for POTUS Trump in 2016.
Well, good. We’ve been waiting for this explanation.
“I can talk to those white women in the suburbs that voted for Trump and explain to them what white privilege actually is,” Gillibrand said.
“When their son is walking down a street with a bag of M&M’s in his pocket, wearing a hoodie, his whiteness is what protects him from not being shot,” Gillibrand claimed.
“When their child has a car that breaks down and he knocks on someone’s door for help and the door opens and help is given, it’s his whiteness that protects him from not being shot.
“That is what white privilege is today,” Gillibrand added.
Well, that answers that question.
“My responsibility is to not only lift up those stories but to explain to communities across America, like I did in Youngstown, Ohio, to a young mother, that this is all about responsibilities and that together we can make our communities stronger,” Gillibrand concluded.”
This month, Gillibrand stated, “I have benefited because of my whiteness, and that’s just a fact.”
Or maybe she benefitted from working hard, studying, and putting in the work to be successful — without race having anything at all to do with it.
What about Kamala Harris, who she shared the stage with? Cory Booker? They, too, as persons of color, have achieved status in American society. So have the Obama’s.
And many other people of color. Because…America. That’s what we’re about, baby — lifting all boats, and thank God we have POTUS Trump in the White House, whose economic policies have done just that.
So this claim of “white privilege” is toxic and racist in and of itself, make no mistake.
But it’s also extremely phony and extremely divisive and extremely destabilizing in a multi-ethnic, multi-racial society that cannot and will not survive intact if we continue to allow race-baiters, race hustlers, charlatans, and fools from the Democrat Left control the national narrative.
