Chauvinist, racist, white supremacist… perhaps the only common “ist” our President hasn’t been called is “feminist”.
A couple of weeks ago we published an article that asked “What are you doing to divide?” The division in our country is coming from all of us – and that was clearly on display Wednesday when before President Trump’s visit to Duluth, Mayor Emily Larson was recorded on a DFL press video call about the debates saying:
“Last night was appalling, embarrassing, and nauseating. We have a white supremacist in the White House who cares only about himself, who says he is about law and order, but I can guarantee you is coming into my community, disregarding the laws of the health and safety for Minnesotans. He only cares about laws that apply to himself. He pays taxes according to whatever laws and rules he thinks apply to him. He parses out core information about the coronavirus pandemic at a timeline that he thinks works best for him. I am not about him. I am about this community. I am about state. I am about country, and I am about Joe Biden.”
The truth is that President Trump has denounced white supremacy more than 20 times since being elected, but the liberal funded media insists on pushing the white supremacy narrative because it funnels endless clicks and dollars to their websites and the liberal candidates they support.
A white supremacist is someone who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that white person should have control over people of other races. Ironically, Mayor Larson thinks she’s the voice of minorities in our region: deciding to remove the word “chief” because she thought it was offensive without first presenting it to the indigenous community. She says that she’s “about Joe Biden”. The Joe Biden that said, “If you don’t vote for me you ain’t Black”? Okay.
In fact, she thinks she’s the voice for everyone, according to a January Duluth Monitor article that reports she no longer let’s city workers speak to reporters directly – all messages are passed through a handler so she can control the city’s narrative in a very Draconian way.
Add Mayor Larson’s comments about Trump to recent tweets she’s made disparaging men and it’s clear that she is one of the great dividers in the Duluth area.
One city councilor, Derek Medved, was brave enough to condemn Mayor Larson’s remarks, saying, as reported by Fox 21 that “attacking another party’s candidate crosses the line when elected officials are supposed to be non-partisan”, in her official capacity. Medved also believes it can jeopardize Duluth’s ability to get federal funds, for example, “when Gov. Tim Walz appealed to President Trump for $15 million from FEMA to rebuild after recent unrest there and was denied.”
Larson was elected to represent ALL of Duluth and has clearly failed in that endeavor. Sources in city hall have told us that Mayor Larson is an avid reader of our page, with one of our recent articles inspiring a press conference on the drastic increase of gun violence in Duluth. For that reason we’ll address the Mayor directly:
Mayor Larson, as the representative of our community and all of its people we demand an apology to our President and his supporters, especially the minority community that supports President Trump. The very idea that you can be the voice for communities of color is supremacist, and frankly embarrassing.
It is a fundamental failing of the Left that they demand minorities and LGTBQ must vote for them to have a voice – their primarily old, white voice. Old, white voices, like Joe Biden’s, that have spent decades at the highest levels of government and have made very little attempt at change, and in most cases have passed legislation that directly harms these communities. Like Joe Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill that was used to “Lock the S.O.B.s Up”, and required the current administration to pass a historic bi-partisan Criminal Justice Bill that includes the FIRST Step Act signed by President Trump reforming mandatory minimums, reducing enhanced penalties for non-violent repeat drug offenders and eliminated the mandatory three-strike life provision as well as helping inmates rejoin society with participation in vocational training, education or faith-based programs.
The Trump Administration also created the Pledge to American Workers promising 6.5 million training and education opportunities to ALL Americans. The current administration created Opportunity Zone Incentives that invest in and improve low-income communities, nearly 9,000 communities will benefit. Trump has also prioritized education for minorities by passing legislation for school choice and increasing Federal funding to HBCU programs by more than 14%.
Does a white supremacist purchase a segregated private club – in this case, Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, and open it to Jews and Blacks, when most other private clubs in that region would not allow them? I don’t think we have to answer that.
Most are aware of the Left’s hate and vitriol. Much like a cheating boyfriend accusing his faithful girlfriend of cheating to make himself feel better. The Left’s constant criticism of the Right illustrates the old childhood taunt that when you point a finger at someone else you’re pointing three back at yourself. The Left does everything they claim the Right to be doing, with ignorant righteous indignation. That can be clearly seen today when shortly after the announcement that the President and First Lady have been diagnosed with COVID-19, endless comments on national and local news feeds, and posts from individuals on their own accounts respond to the news with “I hope he dies.”
We know you can’t see it now – but the way you are responding says more about you than it does anything else. What will you think about yourself two – four – or six years from now when your hateful post surfaces in your Facebook Memories. We hope you’ll be as disgusted as we are now.
Mayor Larson needs to realize that Hillary Clinton won Minnesota by 1% of the vote in 2016. While Duluth was was more “blue” than most of the state, they weren’t all blue and if the size of the crowd Trump drew to the airport on a rainy, cold night is any indication, Northern Minnesota is less blue than it was four years ago and Duluth relies on the business of several surrounding “red” communities. If the Mayor wants to be remembered as anything other than the seat warmer she currently is, she needs to check her liberal bias and snarky comments at the door of her non-partisan office and really focus on the issues that matter to our community – taxes, jobs, infrastructure, public safety, and education – all of which are at stake locally and statewide this November.
