LA Times Calls Larry Elder 'the Black Face of White Supremacy'
California newspaper goes on full attack
An opinion piece in The Los Angeles Times has described Black conservative Larry Elder, who is running against embattled Californian Go. Gavin Newsome, as the "black face of white supremacy."
The Times opinion piece read:
“Where do you start with the damage Gavin Newsom has done to the state that we both love?”
He leaned forward to gaze across the room of white Republicans who had come to hear him speak in Orange County.
“Rising crime? (It’s) because of this phony narrative that the police are engaging in systemic racism, and cops are pulling back,” Elder said.
“… When you reduce the possibility of a bad guy getting caught, getting convicted, and getting incarcerated, guess what? Crime goes up.”
Then another smile, this one even more smug than the last.
“Can you say, ‘Duh?’”
I won’t lie. Few things infuriate me more than watching a Black person use willful blindness and cherry-picked facts to make overly simplistic arguments that whitewash the complex problems that come along with being Black in America.
In just weeks, Newsom is facing a recall effort.
Last month, Neon Nettle reported Newsom was now able to place blame on “Republicans and Trump supporters” for his recall election, a judge recently ruled.
The ruling allows Newsom to play politics and divert attention away from his poor job performance as a Governor.
Meanwhile, Elder, who is black, writes on his website that he is "unafraid to take on liberals and the Black Lives Matter movement" and that his political beliefs include "returning to the bedrock Constitutional principles of limited government and maximum personal responsibility."
Newsom supporters claimed that the recall is being led by far-right extremists and white nationalists, to which Edler said, "Do I look like a white nationalist?"
Now the establishment political left is trying to get Elder to drop out.
As Politco reported:
Two prominent California recall candidates and the Sacramento Bee editorial board called Friday for GOP frontrunner Larry Elder to drop out of the race after his past comments about women and allegations made by his ex-fiancee surfaced this week.
Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner exhorted Elder to exit the contest, further roiling the race as millions of Californians begin to vote.
"Elder's backwards positions harm women's rights and the livelihoods of California families," Faulconer said in a late Friday afternoon statement.
"Elder’s lack of judgment and character flaws threaten the success and credibility of this historic recall movement — Californians will not vote to recall one dysfunctional Governor if it means replacing him with another."
