Democrats seem far less concerned about the censorship of free speech than they do about conservative bloggers monetizing their hard work. The Trump supporters known as Diamond & Silk spoke before a House Judiciary committee today to address the social media censorship they claim to be experiencing.
Rep Hakeem Jeffries seemed to have a real problem with the fact that the duo took Trump’s advice and dared to capitalize on their hard work. At one point fellow “African-Americans” Diamond & Silk let him have it.
The outspoken duo whose real names are Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson were subjected to belittling comments from Democrats who mocked their moniker ‘Diamond & Silk’ (that’s helped to launch them to fame in political circles, by the way) and were completely fixated on their ability to have monetized their charismatic personalities in combination with their admiration for President Trump.
After a heated exchange with Rep Sheila Jackson Lee, Hardaway and Richardson got to the bottom of a mystery payment allegedly from the Trump campaign while taking repeated jabs from Jeffries over their undisputed success.
So Jeffries switched gears and tried to make it sound as if something shady was going on when he mentioned that Trump advised the women to monetize their schtick that was quickly becoming popular. Trump, being the consummate businessman that he is, was giving the women good advice, which they took.
“You! As an African-American, you’re not going to make us feel guilty because were going to get out here and take advantage of these platforms,” Hardaway said.
“I don’t see you walking up to a white person and saying, ‘oh, you shouldn’t be monetizing that.’ So, why are YOU as an African-American making it seem like there’s something wrong with us monetizing our platform?” Hardaway shot back before the Jeffries time elapsed.
