The Democratic Party has gotten so extreme that it’s rarely a challenge to pick out candidates from the party controlled by its radical left-wing base.

Pushing identity politics and a racially divisive narrative, the go-to tactic when up against a white male Republican seems to be to call them a white supremacist — this coming from the cabal that lectures the nation on the tone of our rhetoric.

 

Case in point, Democratic candidate Alexandra Owensby, who is running against Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky.

The longshot Democrat hoping to prevent Massie from a fifth term in Congress, took to Twitter to share a family photo of the Republican candidate, only to accuse him of secretly “flashing a ‘white supremacy’ sign.”

She tweeted: “When racial tensions are at an all time high, my opponent Thomas Massie ‘welcomes’ granting citizenship while flashing a ‘white supremacy’ sign with his left hand?!”

When a social media user pointed out that Massey was grasping the edge of his jacket with two fingers, insisting that Owensby was going to lose big, the Democrat doubled down on her white supremacy accusation while questioning “why” he would choose to do so with only two fingers.

But then, leave it to savvy social media users to find incriminating evidence that makes Owensby look even more ridiculous:

The story brings to mind Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, when his former law clerk Zina Bash was accused of flashing a white power sign while sitting behind him.

A now-deleted tweet from her husband, U.S. Attorney John Bash, informed attackers that: “Zina is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side. She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors.”

Not surprisingly, Owensby was lit up on social media, given new meaning to “being ratioed.”

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
