Senate Candidate John James Tweets A Masterpiece Of American Exceptionalism

John James isn’t just telling his story, he is telling the story of millions of black Americans whose families worked to improve their lives, one generation at a time, until today a black man can become anything he wants by working hard.

That’s has been true for at least 40 years. But we never hear about men like this from the MSM he does not fit their narrative of what a black man should be.

There is nothing the Left loathes more than a smart, articulate, black Conservative.

Trending: Scientists Admit “Math Error” Led To Alarming Results In Major Global Warming Study

Washington Examiner:

Michigan’s Republican Senate candidate John James launched a rhetorical nuclear attack on far-left partisanship on Wednesday. James did so with this tweet response to Michigan liberal activist Abdul El-Sayed (a Bernie Sanders-type candidate who lost the state’s gubernatorial primary).

There’s a lot in that tweet that makes it so powerful, but let’s consider the key elements. First off, James uses one line to evidence intellectual patriotism. As a young man, James chose to attend a military academy rather than civilian college. He then went on to serve the nation in Iraq. But James’ pride at holding two masters degrees is well-deserved. After all, it evidences someone who cares about making himself, and thus his community, better. And in the context of El-Sayed’s silly partisanship, the power of education takes on added value as a better foundation for civic engagement.

But then comes James’ representation of family and history. He speaks of his father’s service in Vietnam in an era in which racism remained a far more significant problem in American life than it is today. But more than that, James speaks to the great American tradition of social mobility. Today, James is a candidate for Senate who earned that privilege by defeating other GOP primary contestants. James is also a successful businessman and rightly proud of that. But James also proves that American society is never static. James’ grandfather was a mason, his great-grandfather a sharecropper, and his great-great-grandfather was a slave. More

Straight and to the point…

Godspeed, Mr. James. The Left will savagely attack you, just as they do with every Black Conservative who dares to think independently.
