It’s been a rough couple of days for the corporate media, which Tucker Carlson has described as the public relations arm of the Democrat Party, after the GOP swept all the statewide offices in Virginia and took control of the House of Delegates in Tuesday’s election.
MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan, an apparent Wikipedia fan, is one of the many TV pundits who suddenly, moreover, doesn’t seem inclined to celebrate diversity.
In addition to CRT foe Glenn Youngkin at the top of the ticket, Virginia voters elected Winsome Sears, a Jamaican-born woman and former U.S. Marine as lieutenant governor, and Cuban-American Jason Miyares as attorney general.
Hasan took to Twitter to nonetheless play the tired white supremacy card and, of course, bash ex-President Donald Trump in the process.
“The argument that white supremacy & racial resentment couldn’t have helped power Youngkin to victory in VA because the Republicans elected a black lieutenant governor – Winsome Sears – is as convincing as saying Trump isn’t a racist because he made Ben Carson his HUD secretary,” he wrote.

Relying on Wikipedia as his primary research source, Hasan linked to a distasteful and outdated entry from the online encyclopedia about white people avoiding allegations of racism by claiming they have black friends.
The Youngkin team received support from Virginians from all walks of life and backgrounds, however, including many parents concerned about pervasive far-left indoctrination in the public schools.
Separately, Lt. Gov.-elect Sears has called upon Hasan’s colleague Joy Reid to invite her on the latter’s MSNBC show.
” Let’s see if she is woman enough to do that. I would go in a heartbeat, and we will have a real discussion without Joy speaking about me behind my back,” Sears told Fox News. “She talks about white supremacy. Does she know that I ran against a white supremacist? Joy, come on. Get your facts straight and then come talk to me.”

Fox News’ Carlson has irreverently nicknamed Reid the “race lady,” while journalist Jason Whitlock similarly dubbed her “Racial Maddow.”
Mehdi Hasan is the same pundit who recently promulgated a conspiracy theory that a Republican-controlled U.S. House would refuse to certify the results of the 2024 presidential election if a Democrat won.
He added that the country is under a “rolling coup” because Republican legislatures are enacting voter integrity laws in states around the country.
The latter seems to be a narrative that the left is test-marketing in the event the GOP fair-and-square wins control of Congress in 2022 even while Democrats insist that challenging the Election 2020 outcome is or was tantamount to sedition.

Social media is roasting Hasan for his latest pronouncement. Here is just a sample:
Perhaps the dumbest statement you have made in a long time….like since yesterday.
The PEOPLE voted for Winsome Sears, she was not appointed.
I suppose the fact Hispanic voters went +10 for Youngkin is also a….checks notes…white supremacist dog whistle?

And yet if she had lost, you would find that conclusive evidence of racism in voters.

The lieutenant governor in Virginia is elected by the people, not appointed. Something you would know if you actually cared about the issue and not interested in beating a dead horse, you absolute buffoon. https://t.co/KqgwGHMVNt

Youngkin’s opponent sought and obtained the endorsement of the governor who dressed in black face. Also white supremacists and racists oppose minorities being elected to higher office, they don’t vote for them. You’re playing word games. https://t.co/AZ8wkOkZOv

Except one is an appointment and one is 1.6 million Virginians casting votes of their own choice. But nice try. Just kidding, it was a dumb try. https://t.co/I9PJUXmfhx

So, what would be your definition of white supremacy if it results in electing a black lieutenant governor?
— TheSpagnostic (@spagnositic) November 3, 2021
I think the real takeaway is that the Left is pathologically obsessed with a ‘white supremacy’ boogieman that they keep on life-support with their on low-expectation bigotry; while normal america just doesn’t give a fuck about race. https://t.co/g43nZA9MLK

You have lots of cards in your deck of cards. 100s of them. But they’re all the same card for every hand.

Did you really just use Wikipedia as a source to support your position? Even my elementary school kids can’t use Wikipedia as a source…

Reason 14 why I quit the Dem party and went independent
Divisive Race baiting muppets like this.
Dems can’t loose enough elections long as they allow this hate filled hypocritical crap https://t.co/81Al3lw7SJ

Sears was elected, not appointed. You are suggesting that the same Virginia voters who were hypnotized by Fox News into voting for Youngkin then flipped a switch in their brain, turned off the white supremacist brainwashing and elected a black Lt. Governor.

As perhaps reflected in the above tweets, the late New York City talk show host Bob Grant, who pioneered conservative radio before it was cool and before syndication — let alone streaming — was a thing, often said that when it comes to matters of race, liberals are the ultimate hypocrites.
