In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

White House foolishly indulges AOC claim McEnany was racist against her

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany innocently called Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and advisor to Joe Biden.

That enraged AOC, who tweeted:

“The @PressSec comment is steeped in a long, hurtful, & horrendous history of stripping women of color of titles and diminishing them to ‘the help,'” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted to her more than 8 million followers. “Perhaps she isn’t aware that what she did is mired in racist history. If that is the case, I look forward to her apology tomorrow.”

“Wouldn’t be the first person to mistake a women of color for having a lower position or title than she does, but Kayleigh – in case you haven’t picked up a newspaper in two years, I’m a Congresswoman.”

This is of course nonsense, AOC is in fact an official advisor to the Biden campaign, on climate issues. Which is bad news for the Biden campaign, but that’s another issue.

If I call Ben Carson a close advisor to President Trump without mentioning that he is secretary of housing and urban development, am I being a racist? Would he care at all?

The White House should have simply moved on from this outrage culture race-baiting and enforcement of some insane version of political correctness. Instead, it legitimized AOC’s complaint by responding and being careful to call her “congresswoman.”

And BTW, don’t you ever refer to me as a journalist. I am the EDITOR of White House Dossier. Refusing to acknowledge my position is part of a long history of anti-Semiticism and dimishing Jewish achievement.

  1. Disagree. You gotta call them out on stuff like this…otherwise, the lie or misrepresentation is picked up, circulated as fact and never retracted.

    As Alyssa Farah noted, Ms. McEnanay literally called her Congresswoman in her original comment, in addition to saying she was an advisor.

  2. “If any one of you goddamn conservatives dares to express, vote according to, or even have an opinion, you will live to regret it. Or if you ever utter a word, anywhere, to anyone, anytime, we will shriek incessantly about the horrific racism and intolerance that obviously motivates your every breath. Now send me some checks because that’s all you are good for, I’ll stop at the bank and cash them on my way to burn me some cop cars that you paid for.”

  3. The girl who cried wolf…. after a while its the same monotonous drone, calling people racist, misogynist, etc…. ho hum… Wait, I better not say that…

    1. I’ve been a “racist” since 2008 opposing (I did not riot or burn down Wash DC…wish I did -LOL) the regime of Barack Hussein Obama… *YAWN*

      Hey, AOC honey come up with some new name calling…-LOL

  4. How tiresome. So many of us have been described as racists, deplorable, bigoted, sexist, anti-everything that it doesn’t matter anymore.
    So, the woman (assuming a gender) is offended, well, sister, join the rest of us.

  5. In my old PR/Communications days, I’d have agreed with you, Keith. For most companies or people in most situations, those kinds of antagonisms are better off ignored.
    Now, I think those with the highest visibility on our side need to “push back twice as hard”. If anything. Press Secretary McEnany should have come out swinging at “AOC” for punching down, which IS exactly what Miss Privilege from New York is doing.

    Off topic PS: Is it intentional that I can’t highlight and copy text on the new website? It’s neither here nor there but just meant I had to type “Press Secretary McEnany” instead of being able to copy and paste it. And, if I type something and want to highlight and delete it, I can’t – I have to put the cursor in place and use the delete button letter by letter.

    1. Yes, I find being unable to highlight and copy to be a real pain. I often want to include an exact quote in my response, have to type it out now. Not a world-ender, but perhaps something that could be easily changed?

  6. For years the Republicans took the high road every time the demorats slung mud at them. What good did it do? Supposedly it made them look “honorable”. But instead it encourage more of the behavior. Finally we have a President and administration that that puts their collective foot down and publicly calls out the bad behavior. Only when the demorats and the libs have had their asses handed to them enough will they stop.
