CA Gov Newsom Claims Racism Behind Efforts to Unseat Him

Newsom blames racism, not his horrendous handling of the coronavirus pandemic

When Democrats don’t want to face consequences for their behavior, their favorite “go-to” tactic is cry racism. California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom blames racism, not his horrendous handling of the coronavirus pandemic, as the cause behind the effort to recall him. On Wednesday, the effort to recall Governor Newsom reportedly received over two million signatures in favor.

Though Newsom has said he plans to fight recall efforts, he says the motivation behind the movement stems from racism. Speak to “The View” on Tuesday, Newsom said “it has to do with immigration. The browning of California.”

Newsom started his own campaign in response, called “Stop the Republican Recall.” In his campaign, his rhetoric gets even more desperate, arguing those backing the effort against him are anti-vaxers against the coronavirus vaccine, Q-Anon theorists, and the ultimate favorite, Trump supporters.

But it is Newsom that consistently mentions race. In an interview with MSNBC, Newsom said he had “multiples names in mind” of Black women to replace California Senator Dianne Feinstein if she resigns, in order to fill the vacancy of now vice-president Kamala Harris.

Suddenly the governor is concerned about the representation of Black women in leadership roles? Don’t be fooled. When Newsom actually had the chance to fill the seat vacated by Kamala Harris, he chose former California Secretary of State Alex Padilla. Although Padilla Latino, Newsom had been under intense pressure to fill her seat with a Black woman.

Democratic Senator Feinstein is the oldest sitting U.S. senator and says she has no plans to resign with four years left in her term. Feinstein has served as the United States Senator from California since 1992 and is 87 years old. Newsom said his mention of placing a Black woman in Feinstein’s seat was just “hypothetical” and hopes Feinstein completes her term.

    Newsom is just another white privileged liberal! He does not represent my political beliefs nor my family’s. Hes represents everything that’s wrong with California.

      That’s really not the case at all. Newsome has repeatedly RAPED Californians with extreme taxes and policies. FFS, Elin Musk moved his company out of Valid because of burdensome regulations and taxes. Millions have fled the oppressive regime to places that value and honor civil rights and freedoms.

    Democrats push the Critical Race Theory that says the world’s racism is because of white people and more specifically white men. Democrat Newsome blames his recall on racism. This looks like circular reasoning and not logical.

    That’s rich. A white male millionaire who is a member of one of the leading families in California is crying racism. As an African-American male, I am offended. Two million people think Newsome is doing a poor job. His ethnicity is irrelevant.

National Public Radio Discontinues Reading the Declaration of Inependence

A post by Todd Starnes alerts that National Public Radio (NPR) has ditched its annual ritual of reading the Declaration of Independence. NPR, derisively referred to by Starnes as “National Public Welfare Radio,” announced the cessation of reading the Declaration. Which staffers at the taxpayer-funded radio network had been reading aloud the document since 1988.

The void that would have resulted from not reading the Declaration was not unfilled. “Instead, NPR broadcast an 11-minute conversation about whether or not the Founding Fathers actually meant the words “all men are created equal.” Here’s a link if you’d like to listen to their “screed” (which also reminds us frequently that many of the Founding Fathers owned slaves).

Starnes disclosed that he owns “KWAM, the leading news talk radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. It angers me that my tax dollars are used to prop up a broadcast competitor that spits on our Founding Fathers and our Founding Documents.”

Interestingly, NPR’s newly voiced contempt and cynicism for the Declaration of Independence does not encompass refusing taxpayer-funded government support. Whether or not the Founding Fathers meant what they said and what they wrote may be grist for energetic banter on a radio program that is increasingly committed to shrill progressive virtue signaling. However, the topic of this discussion among smug well-remunerated media activists is irrelevant. The words of the Founding Fathers have been inspirational for two hundred and forty-six years and have been the moral and legal foundation used to free the slaves and develop Constitutional principles to ensure that slavery can never be implemented in this country. Slavery currently exists in several countries now, but NPR is dedicated to ignoring that scourge.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
