Elections GOP WTF?!

Perpetually White David Perdue Attacks Stacey Abrams For ‘Demeaning Her Own Race’

According to former Georgia Republican Sen. David Perdue, 2022 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is “demeaning her own race” by daring to criticize the Peach State for lagging behind in important metrics for progress.

Perdue, who has been white his entire life and has no idea what it means to be a black woman in the South, decided he’d attack Abrams even though current polls show him losing by 32 points to incumbent Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp in tomorrow’s primary election.

Specifically, Abrams told the Gwinnett Democrats’ Bluetopia Gala in Norcross, Georgia:

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live. Let me contextualize. When you’re number 48 for mental health, when we’re number one for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that is on the rise and wages are on the decline, then you are not the number one place to live.”

Was anything Abrams said factually wrong? No. She’s absolutely right.

But that didn’t keep Perdue from saying that Abrams needs to “go back where she came from.”

“Did y’all see what Stacey said this weekend? She said that Georgia is the worst place in the country to live. Hey, she ain’t from here. Let her go back where she came from if she doesn’t like it here.

“The only thing she wants is to be president of the United States. When she told Black farmers, you don’t need to be on the farm. And she told Black workers in hospitality and all this, you don’t need to be — she is demeaning her own race when it comes to that.”

As for the “demeaning her own race” line, keep in mind this is the same David Perdue who once said he was “proud” of outsourcing jobs from Georgia overseas:

“Defend it? I’m proud of it. This is a part of American business, part of any business. Outsourcing is the procurement of products and services to help your business run. People do that all day.”

Sounds like Perdue is demeaning to the entire human race.

Abortion GOP Viral Video

Doctor Humiliates GOP Congressman When He Asks Her ‘What Is A Woman?’

The House Judiciary Committee was meeting today to discuss the issue of abortion, and one Republican congressman got his head handed to him when he asked a female doctor who was testifying to tell him what a woman is.

Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) asked Dr. Yashica Robinson, an abortion provider in Alabama, the question after she noted that she preferred she/her pronouns:

“What is a woman?” 

Dr. Robinson responded:

“I think it’s important for you to understand why I used she/her pronouns.”

The congressman interrupted:

“I would just like it if you could answer the question. What’s a woman?”

That’s when the doctor put Bishop on full blast:

“I think it’s important that we educate people like you about why we’re doing the things that we do. And so the reason I use she and her pronouns is because I understand that there are people who become pregnant that may not identify that way and I think it is discriminatory to speak to people or to call them in such a way as they desire not to be called.”

Bishop countered:

“Are you going to answer my question? Can you answer the question? What’s a woman?”

Doctor Robinson:

“I’m a woman.”

The self-satisfied congressman then asked:

“So, you’ve given me an example of a woman You are a woman. Can you tell me — otherwise, can you tell me what a woman is?”

Bishop:

“Yes, I’m telling you I’m a woman.”

“Is that as comprehensive of a definition as you can give me?” Bishop asked.

Again, the doctor gave as good as she got, telling Bishop:

“That’s as comprehensive of a definition as I will give you today because I think that it’s important that we focus on what we’re here for and it’s to talk about access to abortion.”

The better question is one that should be asked of Congressman Bishop: Can you tell us what a bigoted eunuch looks like? If you’re uncertain, go take a glance in the nearest mirror.

Musk Loses $10 Billion In A Single Day After New Allegations Of Sexual Misconduct Surface

Even though he’s reportedly the richest man in the world, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is watching as large chunks of his fortune spiral down the proverbial toilet, costing him billions of dollars and threatening to turn him into a former billionaire.

According to Business Insider, Musk lost $10 billion in a single day after allegations of sexual misconduct were lodged against him:

Tesla CEO Elon Musk lost $10 billion in just a single day after claims of sexual misconduct against him emerged.

He was worth about $212 billion on Thursday, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. After news of the allegations broke on Thursday night, his wealth fell to around $201 billion, the index showed.

According to Insider’s report, SpaceX, the aerospace firm founded by Musk, paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against Musk in 2018. Musk has denied the claim.

In recent weeks, Musk has been at the center of the business and media world as a result of his offer to buy Twitter for the price of $44 billion, with a large part of the purchase price expected to be covered by Musk’s stock holdings in Tesla.

But Tesla stock has tanked over the past week or so, leading some financial experts to suggest that Musk’s complaints about Twitter being filled with bots is merely a face-saving way for him to back out of the deal now that his cash reserve is running low:

Tesla’s stock performance in public markets has the most significant impact on Musk’s wealth. Musk owns about 15% of the electric carmaker, per BBC. After news of the allegations emerged, Tesla’s share price tanked 6.4%.

But Musk’s sexual misconduct news and related financial fallout is just the latest incident in a protracted wealth decline since the start of this year. Per Bloomberg’s estimate, he is now more than $69 billion poorer year-to-date. That’s partly because Tesla’s stock price was pulled down amid a global stock-market selloff as investors worried about the health of the global economy. 

Ironically, the Twitter deal could wind up sinking Musk’s overall financial standing:

Last week alone, the carmaker’s stock was down 14%, wiping out about $110 billion from its market valuation, Bloomberg reported. “As long as the Twitter deal is out there, and as long as Tesla’s stock is falling, people worry that Musk will have to sell more stock and would get distracted and not pay as much attention to Tesla as he should,” Gary Black, founder and managing partner at the actively-managed ETF Future Fund LLC, told Bloomberg.

Considering some of the vile things Musk has been spewing on social media lately, many are wondering if perhaps he’s losing it mentally, too.

On Friday, Musk announced he was putting together a “hardcore litigation department” at Tesla, adding, “There will be blood.”

The blood appears to be red ink hemorrhaging from the accounts of Elon Musk.

Capitol Insurrection Donald Trump GOP

WATCH: GOP Voter Unable To Respond When Asked Why Trump Didn’t ‘Stop’ Antifa If They Were Responsible For Jan. 6

A Republican voter in Georgia who tried to blame “Antifa” for the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection could only shrug his shoulders when asked why Trump failed to stop the rioters.

“Morning Joe” contributor Elise Jordan was speaking with voters in the Peach State on the eve of primaries in the state. Failed, one-term former President Donald Trump is supporting ex-Georgia Sen. David Perdue for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, but polls show Perdue is losing by as much as 32 points to incumbent Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.

When Jordan asked a question about Jan. 6, one man told her:

“There was a lot of bad stuff that happened that day, I agree. But I believe the portion of people that were troublemakers is very small. No. 2 how many of those troublemakers were actually Antifa or intentional troublemakers?”

The man then continued:

“There’s a whole series of questions that don’t add up, and you have to go through this much boilerplate and crap to find the three nuggets of truth or hard fact or information that really matters. I’m frustrated by the entire thing, I want to forget about it, but I looked at every photograph in the [Atlanta Journal-Constitution], about 20 photos that day. All the ones smashing and bashing and crashing, 25, 28 years old, skinny jeans with the beards. I said to myself, ‘That’s not the normal Republican.’ I mean, look at us here. I mean, maybe he was paid to do that.”

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the man began spinning all sorts of debunked conspiracy theories about what transpired on Jan. 6:

“None of it makes any sense. When you read about, you know, Ray Epps being at the one gate that fell first, when you read about the Molotov cocktails left at the DNC the night before with only a mechanical kitchen timer, not anything remotely triggered, so after 60 minutes, the timer can’t be activated. Kamala Harris went to the DNC. Bombs were found by her crew at 11:50, 12:50, within five minutes of Ray Epps giving the orders to crash the first barrier barrier. Then the riots started because the police had to withdraw from that area and investigate the molotov cocktails. There is so much going on when you bore down into the facts.”

Jordan perfectly shut down the man by asking:

“Let’s take a step [back]. So if this was happening, and it was Antifa, then why didn’t President Trump whip into action and stop it? He didn’t tweet, he didn’t call off the dogs. Why was that?”

The man could only smile wanly and shrug his shoulders, unable to find a single word to back up his nonsensical fantasies.

Congress GOP WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Whines About There Now Being A ‘Target’ On White Supremacists

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) says there’s no need to worry in the least about white supremacy in the United States despite the fact that the accused Buffalo mass shooter made it clear he allegedly shot and killed 10 black people because he was worried about being “replaced” by people of color in the U.S..

Speaking with Real America’s Voice on Sunday, Greene insisted that there needs to be more focus on blacks who commit crime, not on whites who commit mass murder:

“Jerry Nadler was on the House floor and he was talking about white supremacy. And he was bringing up the terrible shooting that happened in [Buffalo] but totally ignoring the shooting that happened in California that I think involved an Asian man who was the shooter totally ignoring the guy that drove his car, black man that drove his car through a Christmas parade [in Waukesha, Wisconsin], killing people and was a racist himself, completely ignoring the black man that did the New York subway shooting.”

See, to Marjorie, crime is only a threat when it’s committed by a person of color. No need to talk about white supremacy, she insisted:

“These people are all guilty of these crimes and it’s not about race. It shouldn’t be about race. But they’re clearly racist as well, so white supremacy shouldn’t be the main target.

“We should be more concerned about the illegal invasion at the border, the crime happening every single day on our streets, especially in cities like Chicago. We should go after criminals that break the law and not pursue people based on their skin color and how they vote. But that’s what the Democrats want to do.”

No, Margie, that’s simply a bullshit conspiracy theory, and we all know how fond you are of those and other nonsense that you see on the internet and then parrot as if it’s fact.

White supremacy and right-wing terrorism is the single-greatest threat to this country, according to FBI Director Chris Wray, who just happens to have been appointed by failed, one-term former President Donald Trump.

If there’s a “target” on white supremacists, that’s a good thing. They don’t deserve to walk among us in the first place. They belong in prison.
