Racist Justice Democrats Support a Candidate for Her Race

A leftist Democratic representative is being targeted by racist Justice Democrats for being a white male.

Yahoo News wrote and published another long valentine for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but in the process it revealed something very disturbing about the whole movement. One candidate is a black woman running against a white male incumbent. What’s wrong with him? Nothing but that he’s white and the racist Justice Democrats are supporting a black woman!

Watch this video to see the same argument openly made for Ayanna Pressley over Michael Capuano!

Yahoo News reports, “Progressive Dems try to catch some of Ocasio-Cortez’s lightning in a bottle.

On a sweltering July Saturday in this city a few miles west of Boston, Ayanna Pressley is making a pitch for change. She’s speaking to a mix of prospective voters and volunteers ready to canvass the neighborhood, echoing a case that is being made by insurgent Democratic candidates across the country: The fight against President Trump is important, but there is also an urgent need to change the status quo of the Democratic Party.

Pressley, a member of the Boston City Council, is attempting to unseat Rep. Michael Capuano, a 10-term incumbent who previously served as mayor of Somerville, in the congressional primary for Massachusetts’s Seventh District. Her race has been compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s successful challenge of Rep. Joe Crowley in New York, a victory that served as a warning sign to Democratic incumbents and an inspiration to leftist candidates across the country.

Both Pressley and Ocasio-Cortez are endorsed by the Justice Democrats, a group born from the Bernie Sanders campaign that is sending staffers around the country attempting to build on the momentum of the Ocasio-Cortez victory.

[…]

There are similarities between the New York and Boston races: Pressley and Ocasio-Cortez are both leftist women of color running against older, white, male incumbents. But Pressley, 44, is 16 years older than first-time candidate Ocasio-Cortez and was the first black woman elected to the Boston City Council, in 2009. And while Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and worked as an organizer for Sanders in 2016, Pressley supported Hillary Clinton, serving as a surrogate throughout the race.

Another key difference in the race is that while Crowley was seen as part of a calcified and centrist Democratic House leadership by the left wing of the party, progressive Democrats would find little to criticize in Capuano’s record.

[…]

But Pressley is aware of that and has tailored her pitch accordingly, stating that voting correctly is not enough and this moment requires leadership by a legislator who better represents the majority-minority district.
