Sen. Elizabeth Warren Demands ‘Critical’ Racial Data of those with Coronavirus

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is demanding the racial data of those contracting the novel coronavirus, contending that it is “critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board.” While the virus appears to be no respecter of persons, infecting more than one million people globally, Warren believes it is “critical” to have racial data to properly respond to the pandemic. “Our health care system is rife with racial disparities. Racial data on coronavirus will be critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board,” she wrote in a tweet, referencing an article from the Atlantic. “But we don’t have that data—yet,” she added: Several people dismissed Warren’s plea. “OMG do we really care what color the person was who died? We are all Americans,” one user wrote. “Really? Even a global pandemic has to be about race?” another asked. “So the virus discriminates??” another inquired. “The coronavirus is infecting and killing Americans of all races. But there’s little public data on whether the virus is having a disproportionate impact on some communities,” Ibram X. Kendi, director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, wrote in the Atlantic piece Warren touted. Kendi, in the piece, lamented the lack of racial data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website, as well as the Johns Hopkins University database. “Few states, municipalities, or private labs are releasing their data by race,” Kendi wrote, citing data from the Illinois Department of Public Health, which provides a bit of racial-based data:

As we often say here at The Daily Buzz…  When Democrat politicians have nothing, they go back to their playbook, and right at the top is race.  In this case, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who misses being the center of the universe, is looking for a way to somehow inject herself into this crisis.  So, she seized on this race-baiting, racial agenda driven idiot Ibram X. Kendi’s (he’s black, and changed his last name from Rogers to Kendi, a Kenyan name) whining about the fact that the CDC doesn’t have much in the way of racial data as it relates to the Wuhan virus.  Probably, they’re too busy trying to execute the President’s directive to find a cure for the damn thing, and don’t have time for such irrelevant nonsense.  The virus doesn’t discriminate.  It doesn’t care if you’re white or black or brown.  It doesn’t care if you’re male or female.  The only demographic it seems to be more prevalent in is the elderly and those with medical conditions, which of course makes sense.  That’s it!  But, in Sen. Warren’s mind, there MUST be some racial angle she can exploit for her own self-serving political agenda.  What a nauseating bitch.  Thank God she’ll never be President.

Ann Coulter: White Supremacists Ate My Homework

By finally returning to the issue that won him the election, President Trump once again has a winning hand. That’s why we’re hearing so much about “white supremacy” this week. Liberals lie all the time, but when they know they’re vulnerable they lie even more than all the time. They’re vulnerable on immigration. Even heroic, nonstop lying doesn’t help — as CNN has discovered. So, naturally, the media have turned to their larger project of relentlessly trying to discredit conservatives as “white supremacists.” Unfortunately for them, apart from a few crackpots — whom I assume exist in a country of 320 million people — there are no “white supremacists.” There were white supremacists 50 years ago, and they were all Democrats. (See my book Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.) Today, “white supremacy” is nothing but a comfortable fantasy the left developed to explain its sick preoccupation with white people. Talk about a manufactured crisis! The same people who love to snicker about Fox News viewers worrying about Sharia law sweeping the country are convinced that mythical “white supremacists” are hiding under every bed. The whole concept is bogus. In my life, I’ve encountered a number of white people — some of them are my best friends. I’ve never heard any of them suggest that whites should rule over other races. None of them has argued that a substandard white person should get a job over a more competent person just because he’s white — you know, what every other group openly advocates for itself. There is a whole swath of journalists who have decided that instead of investigating relevant news, they will spend their time doing oppo-research on prominent conservatives, hoping against hope to call them “racists.” If the facts don’t fit, they’ll make them up. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd once famously imagined a Republican congressman calling Obama “boy.” This week, Newsweek‘s Nina Burleigh (“I’d be happy to give (Bill Clinton) a b—job just to thank him for keeping abortion legal”) casually asked to interview me about “white identity politics.” I have nothing to do with “white identity politics.” I don’t know anyone who knows anyone who even knows what that means. (Nor do I know anyone who’s seen a copy of Newsweek in at least a decade.) When will we get around to talking about the media’s actual hatred of whites? Last year, The New York Times hired Sarah Jeong, a Korean journalist who has posted such venomous anti-white tweets as: “White men are bullshit.” “(F)uck white women lol.” “White people have stopped breeding. (Y)ou’ll all go extinct soon. (T)hat was my plan all along.” “Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.” “#CancelWhitePeople.” “Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins?” “(O)h man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.” There’s no question but that such racist attacks would never be tolerated toward any other group. Jeong never apologized and happily took her seat on the Times’ editorial board. Our cultural institutions regard the statement “It’s okay to be white” as hate speech. Colleges instigate investigations whenever signs with that phrase appear on campus. Second-graders in this country are being indoctrinated into “white privilege” ideology. Eventually people get tired of the left’s fixation on “white people” -– the gratuitous dumping on Western civilization, the incessant sneering about “old white men,” and the nonsense about “white privilege,” as if every white person knows every other white person and is greased into jobs and promotions. But if you ever respond to the hate by noting that the contributions from the parts of the world loathed by The New York Times dwarf the contributions of other cultures, they threaten you. Any references to white male accomplishments are merely defensive. Consider the current Gillette ad, “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be” (after the board of directors rejected the more accurate title, “ANNOUNCEMENT TO SHAREHOLDERS: WE’RE FOLDING THE COMPANY”). The ad shows only white men harassing women — and being corrected by minority men. As long as they brought it up, every culture in the universe is galaxies more misogynistic than Western European culture. The ad should have been titled, Hey, white America, you’ve got to stop doing the things that everyone BUT you does. When other groups talk about themselves, they instantly go to: We rock, we’re awesome! Only the descendants of white Western Europeans are not allowed to be proud of their culture. There is still casual racism, and that should be quickly and severely condemned. Iowa Rep. Steve King, for example, was fanatically obsessed with vindicating a white defendant accused of, first, murdering a half-Pakistani woman, and, second, falsely accusing a Congolese man of the murder. Except King never did that. Newsweek‘s Burleigh did, writing an entire book in defense of alabaster-white Amanda Knox, after she was convicted of the brutal murder of her half-Pakistani roommate — later overturned — and also convicted of falsely accusing an innocent Congolese man of the crime, for which she served four years. Liberals could never, in a million years, survive the standards of “racism” applied to conservatives. Even famed defense attorney Alan Dershowitz said that the only reason journalists defended “Foxy Knoxy” was that “she’s pretty and she doesn’t look like she did it and Americans care about what people look like. She’s the all-American young woman and we don’t care about the evidence.” If you want to know about white supremacy, Nina, interview yourself. After that, maybe you can learn your maid’s name. I’m getting back to the subject you desperately don’t want to discuss: How uncontrolled low-skilled immigration is slaughtering our working class — white, black and brown.

Exactly!!  And well said, Ann.  Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter is the author of that piece that came out a little over a year ago.  But, given recent stories in the news, we felt it was timely.  Ann is exactly right when she notes that the hypocrisy of the left with respect to the issue of race is truly breathtaking.  We see black people with “Black Power” t-shirts and such, or “Black Lives Matter” marches chanting about “pigs in a blanket” as cops protect their marches, and on and on.  And, by ANY definition, BLM is a black racist, domestic terrorist organization.  And yet NOBODY says boo about it.  But, just imagine for a minute someone wearing a “White Pride” t-shirt…or “White Lives Matter”  t shirt or hat.  There would be riots.  AL Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the hypocritical race hustlers on the left would be foaming at the mouth, screaming “racism!” and saying it was a  KKK conspiracy or something else equally ridiculous.  And lets not forget the Hispanic media outlet called “La Raza”; “the race”…or Black Entertainment Television (BET).  Imagine a “White Entertainment Television” or WET network.  It’d never happen because of the brazen double standard and hypocrisy in our society.  And what about February being Black History Month.  There is a month for women, Asians, Hispanics…and so on.  But, not white people..and certainly not white men.  Why is that, exactly?  In many politically correct circles its considered racist to ask such a question.  Of course we could go on all day long…and show the hypocrisy and double standard not only of the dominantly liberal mainstream media, but also corporate America which perpetuates this racial hypocrisy.  Thanks to Ann for having the courage to say all of that.  Not too many do these days.  We also recommend the book “Racism Schmacism: How Liberals Use the “R” Word to Push the Obama Agenda” by James Edwards.  You can get it in paperback on Amazon for pretty cheap.  It’s about a decade old.  BUT, its well researched and really debunks the left’s racial narrative that Ann just touched on.

Michael Eric Dyson, liberal ‘View’ hosts say Trump’s mention of ‘Gone with the Wind’ was racially motivated

Liberal commentator Michael Eric Dyson attacked President Trump on Friday, arguing that he was racist for pushing for a return of “Gone with the Wind” and criticizing the movie “Parasite.” “The View” showed a clip of Trump arguing at a Colorado rally Thursday that “Parasite” shouldn’t have received an Academy Award. He also panned the choice of a South Korean film for best picture. “What the hell was that all about?” Trump asked. He added: “Can we get like ‘Gone with the Wind’ back, please?” “Yeah, let’s get ‘Birth of the Nation’ back because we don’t have enough of that kind of kowtowing and cooning,” Dyson said, referring to a movie that’s long considered to be racist. “The View” then muted the comments that followed and it’s unclear what exactly he said. Co-host Sunny Hostin took issue with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, arguing that Trump thought America was great in 1939 when “Gone with the Wind” was released. Dyson added that the movie was about “subordinating black people to white folk.” “Let’s bring back the Civil War, let’s bring back slavery,” said co-host Ana Navarro, speaking on how she believes Trump feels about the film. “Gone with the Wind” has come under fire for its depiction of slavery and African Americans. In 2017, a historic theater in Memphis, Tenn., which had shown “Gone With the Wind” screenings for decades, decided to remove the classic film from its schedule due to its racially “insensitive” content. At the time, Orpheum Theater President Batterson explained the decision by saying , “As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves,’ the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population.” The wife of late “Gone With the Wind” actor Fred Crane was outraged over the theater’s decision to ban the film. “By making a statement, they are trying to make a problem,” Terry Lynne Crane told Fox News at the time. “They are inciting racial division and it’s only escalating.”

Exactly right, Ma’am.  This is just another pathetic, disingenuous attempt to label Trump a racist.  It’s the standard Democrat talking point that they push over and over.  Trump liked the movie ‘Gone with the Wind;’ a movie that won TEN academy awards and is considered one of the greatest classic movies of all time.  So what?  It’s a great movie!   That’s all Trump was saying when he disagreed with ‘Parasite’ winning an Oscar.  That’s all   But, because the setting of the movie was during the Civil War when yes, blacks were slaves in the DEMOCRAT south, these self-righteous, sanctimonious, liberal elitists jumped at the opportunity to call Trump a racist.  Then, to make matters worse, you have these brain surgeons on The View suggesting that Trump, in an election year no less, actually intended to make a racist comment.  In other words, he consciously tried to be offensive to a large voting segment in an election year.  Yeah, Michael and Sunny, that’s what he intended…morons.  This is self-serving, agenda driven nonsense gone crazy.  And this is why more and more people are turning away from these race hustlers on the left.

Analysis: Rooting Out Systemic Racism and White Supremacy

It’s axiomatic among progressives and the mainstream media that the country is awash in racism and white supremacy. The entertainment industry is obsessed with racism/white supremacy. So too is the educational establishment. More than a half century after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, racism and white supremacy apparently permeate every corner of the country. Indeed, according to the New York Times’ 1619 Project, racism is in the very DNA of America. So virulent and widespread is racism and white supremacy today that Democratic presidential candidates call for “rooting out” the plague every chance they get. Speaking at a recent event hosted by Al Sharpton, former Vice President Joe Biden said: “We have a lot to root out, but most of all the systemic racism that most of us whites don’t like to acknowledge even exists. There’s something we have to admit — not you, me, white America — has to admit there’s still a systemic racism.” Biden wasn’t asked why he seemingly hadn’t made a dent in rooting out systemic racism in his 36 years as a senator or eight years as Barack Obama’s VP. After all, he has been a member in good standing of The System for a long time. Elizabeth Warren also wants to root out systemic racism: “We must recognize the systemic discrimination that infects our country, and we must work actively — and deliberately — to root it out and set us on a better path.” Racism is everywhere, affects everything. Warren maintains that “race has totally permeated our justice system” and “our crisis of environmental injustice is the result of decades of discrimination and environmental racism.” Given that racism permeates nearly every facet of society, even the environment, it’s impressive that Warren willingly subjected herself to the scourge by claiming she’s Native American. Pete Buttigieg maintains that “We are by no means even half way done dealing with systemic racism in this country.” He asserts that “systemic racism and white supremacy in particular…is the force that is most likely to destroy America.” His website proposes “a comprehensive and intentional dismantling of racist structures and systems.” What, specifically, are these racist structures and systems? How about a few concrete examples supported by evidence? No one in the media seems the least bit interested in asking. It’s simply taken as given that whole institutions, structures, and systems in this country are racist and white supremacist. Asking for examples is, itself, racist. Or, at the very least, an embarrassing demonstration of terminal unwokeness. Racial disparities are presumptively equated with disparate treatment. Racism and white supremacy became particularly acute, of course, after November 2016. Nearly every racial malady since then has been attributed to Donald Trump and his hordes of white supremacist minions. It’s curious, however, that there hasn’t been the expected spike in the data related to racism. Just the opposite. For example, the number of race discrimination charges filed with the EEOC reached a 25-year high of 35,890 in 2010 during the Obama administration, compared with 23,976 filed (merely filed, not even determined to have probable cause) in 2019. Similarly, the FBI reports that 7,120 hate crimes were committed in 2018, fewer than even a decade ago, when the U.S. population was millions smaller and far fewer agencies were reporting hate crimes. These data points don’t necessarily disprove Democratic/media assertions that racism and white supremacy abound. But it’s a far easier lift than proving racism and white supremacy are ubiquitous. Not to worry. There’s at least one clear and unequivocal example of systemic racism in America today, but you’ll never hear Democratic candidates utter a word about it: the staggering racial preferences awarded by colleges to black and Hispanic applicants over white and Asian applicants. Systemic racism is OK, provided it’s approved by progressives, and they’re running the system.

Well said, Peter. Peter N. Kirsanow is the author of that outstanding op-ed.  He is an attorney and a member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights.  Oh, and not that it’s really relevant..but given the topic, and today’s politically correct climate, it’s probably worth noting that Peter is black.  Yeah…  How ’bout that.     🙂

Chelsea Handler Humiliated for Falsely Suggesting Trump Only Exonerates White People

Comedian Chelsea Handler was hammered after she falsely suggested that President Donald Trump only exonerates or pardons white people. Handler got dragged on social media by commenters who pointed out that among the people President Trump chose this week for clemency are Angela Stanton-King, Tynice Nichole Hall, and Crystal Munoz — who are black and Native American. Two years ago, President Trump also granted clemency to Alice Johnson, who is black. President Trump enacted clemency actions on Tuesday for 11 individuals who served time for a range of crimes including drug-related offenses and white-collar fraud. Chelsea Handler, whose most recent Netflix project is a documentary about “white privilege,” appeared to attempted to paint President Trump as a racist by incorrectly implying in a tweet that he only exonerates white people. Angela Stanton-King, who served time for her role in a stolen vehicle ring, pointed out to Handler that she is black. Other Twitter commenters hammered Handler for her inaccurate comment, noting that President Trump’s clemency list was diverse in a way that reflects the racial make-up of the U.S. Of the 11 individuals who received a presidential pardon or commutation, at least three, or 27 percent, count as racial minorities. The racial minority population in the U.S. is estimated at around 23 percent, according to 2010 census figures. Since the passage of the First Step Act under President Trump, 96 percent of people who have been resentenced under the act’s retroactivity provision have been racial minorities, according to data provided by The Sentencing Project. Handler’s Netflix documentary on white privilege — Hello, Privilege. It’s Me, Chelsea — debuted last year to largely negative reviews, with critics saying it amounts to a “misguided reckoning” and noting that she is actively “exploiting her wokeness” and “profiting off a film about her white privilege.”

Chelsea is a nauseating, self-serving, self-righteous, extreme liberal elitist stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome.  And, with Netflix’s assistance, she’s peddling the standard “Trump is a racist” talking point, regardless of facts to the contrary.  She’s out saying that Trump only pardons white people.  That is factually false.  But, the facts don’t matter to her, or her followers.

Behar: 2020 Dems Under Too Much Scrutiny — Republicans Are the ‘Most Racist’

Co-host Joy Behar defended 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Bloomberg’s record on race relations over the objections of co-host Sunny Hostin on Friday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View.” Behar said, “Here’s my point, the stop and frisk thing I think will be counteracted by some of the following. When he was mayor, not that—listen…I’m not shilling for Mayor Bloomberg yet, but I think there’s another side to the story.” Co-host Meghan McCain said, “You kind of are. You like him.” Behar said, “I like him, fine, I do. I like Biden too. I like all of them. I told you I’ll vote for any of them. I’ll vote for Peewee Herman, I told you. But let’s talk about this. He created an office to tackle poverty when he was mayor. He greatly expanded city contracts with businesses owned by minorities and women. He created the young men’s initiative to help black and Latino men stay on track for success, and he reduced incarceration by 40% and juvenile confinement by more than 60%. That is the balance to the stop and frisk that the black community is looking at. You know, as Sunny says every day, no one can win the primary without the black vote. Hostin said, “I think his record, though, Joy, is problematic. I really do. Not only does he have the stop and frisk issue, but he has also the redlining thing … he made it racial. He did.” Behar said, “Why are you so strict on Democrats and lenient on Republicans who have the most racist policies and the most racist track record? Why? Every single one who’s running probably has— this is a racist country, right? Hostin said, “Yeah.” Behar said, “Every single one of them has something in their background that doesn’t look good for race.

And THAT is what Joy Behar, and the rest of these liberal media tools, are falling back to; the race card.  For Dems, its the fallback position; playing the race card.  Joy is in hysterics.  Her pathological hatred (i.e. Trump Derangement Syndrome) for Trump is so intense, that even she admits she’d vote for the fictitious Peewee Herman character.  So, out comes the race card.  After all, Trump is the most racist president we’ve ever had, right?  America is starting to see through that unfounded Dem talking point…and that’s just one of the reasons Joy and her friends are in hysterics.

Coulter: Stop Apologizing for Saving Black Lives

Idiot conservatives were doing the idiot thing this week, screaming “racism!” in response to an old tape of former Mayor Michael Bloomberg defending stop-and-frisk, one of the policies that drove New York City murder rates down to Mayberry levels. They weren’t being ironic. In the 2015 tape, Bloomberg makes the blindingly obvious point that if “95 percent of murders and murder victims are young male minorities” — as is true in New York City — then police should be questioning about 95 percent young male minorities. To stop crime, he said, you “put a lot of cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.” Bloomberg further explained that frisking young black and brown men for minor crimes is how you keep guns off the streets generally: “And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them. And then they start, they say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to get caught.’ So they don’t bring the gun. They still have a gun, but they leave it at home.” Does anyone with a functioning frontal lobe disagree with this? By pursuing the wacky idea of having cops frisk kids in high-crime areas for minor offenses like turnstile jumping, Mayor Rudy Giuliani cut the murder rate from more than 2,000 per year to about 600. No one thought it could possibly go any lower — and then Bloomberg got murders down to an unfathomable 300 or so per year. Giuliani and Bloomberg did more for young minorities than all living Democrats combined. In New York City alone, at least 20,000 more black men are alive today than would be under the genius crime-fighting ideas of prior administrations (and The New York Times). Unless liberal elites are pursuing a secret plan to reduce the black population by allowing young black men to kill one another (that would make a great movie by Jordan Peele!), stop-and-frisk is nothing to apologize for. Well, guess what? Bloomberg apologized for it. He began his presidential campaign with a repudiation of his signature accomplishment in order to please a handful of black activists and a lot of white liberals. For that, he deserves the contempt of all men of good will. Why not attack him for the gutless apology? Is Bloomberg sorry for saving so many black lives? Does becoming a Democrat make basic math incomprehensible? Is he a pandering coward? Can we trust anything he says? But small-bore conservatives did what they always do: Give up winning a war in order to land a quick blow in a skirmish. They called Bloomberg’s earlier, logically insuperable point “RACIST!” Great, so now conservatives are adopting the absolute worst aspect of liberalism — calling everything “racist.” As I wrote in 2016, when the media were going through their quadrennial demand that the Republican candidate for president “disavow” David Duke, these “racism” orgies never have anything to do with black people. It’s part of the Fabulous White People competition, where black people are the chips. If anything, the urge to call other people “racist” has only gotten stronger since then, so I’ll quote myself: “Sad people with meaningless lives [are] suddenly empowered to condemn other people. I beat you in blacks yesterday; I’m going to beat you in women today. This is what makes them feel superior to other people, especially other white people. It’s not about racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.; it’s just a self-actualization movement for people with emotional issues.” Why are conservatives leaping into this game? For the teeny-tiny pleasure of taking a cheap shot at Bloomberg, they are endorsing the idea that anyone who 1) grasps basic math and 2) is opposed to gun crime is a “racist.” Our entire public dialogue will soon be nothing but white people calling one another “racist,” as if we’re trapped in an eternal Democratic presidential debate. At the New Hampshire debate last Friday night, Tom Steyer — hedge fund manager and Hero to Black People Everywhere — kept hammering Joe Biden about some “racist” remark made by South Carolina State Sen. Dick Harpootlian, a Biden supporter. “One of the leaders of Joe Biden’s South Carolina campaign,” Steyer said, “made racist remarks about someone associated with our campaign.” Steyer then repeatedly called on Biden to “disavow” the remark and the man who made it. “Be on the right side,” he implored. The story: Harpootlian had tweeted that another South Carolina Democrat, state legislator Jerry Govan, flipped his support from Biden to Steyer after being paid “almost $50,000” by the Steyer campaign. Calling Steyer “Mr. Moneybags,” Harpootlian concluded, “This is what happens when billionaires get involved … They don’t have to persuade anybody, they just buy them.” I’ve assembled a panel of black judges to rule on Harpootlian’s racism, and their response is: Keep reading. Get to the racism part. Nope, that’s it! Govan is black, so pointing out that Steyer paid him $50,000 and got his endorsement is “racist.” I would have gone with “anti-Semitic” myself, but what do I know? I guess I’ll check with the conservative “racism” fighters!

Thanks to conservative firebrand Ann Coulter for calling these self-righteous hypocrites out.  When Dems abuse the word “racism,” we kinda expect it.  It’s like a Geico commercial; “it’s what they do.”   But, when our side does it, it’s nauseating, and we need people like Ann to call them out.  Heck, Trump is called racist basically every day for simply waking up and breathing.  It’s beyond ridiculous.  Stop and frisk was a method that worked in both Rudy’s and Bloomberg’s administrations in NYC.  There is NO question or debate about that.  It’s not even remotely moot.  And those who shout “racism” over such practices are the real racists.
