In recent months, the “Black Lives Matter” movement has shaken the country to its very foundation. The movement has razed cities, desecrated cultural icons, unleashed an orgy of violence, and made a mockery of the rule of law. It is an existential threat to our civilization and has the nation on the verge of civil war.
Unfortunately, a Republican candidate for the Michigan board of education – Sonjalita Hulbert – has a long history of supporting Black Lives Matter with very left-wing stances on social justice issues.
Rashida Tlaib has become a household name in the world of politics—just not in a way she would like. The boisterous, foul-mouthed member of the far-left “squad” has been one of the most divisive members of congress since her election back in 2018.
Before even taking office, Tlaib exclaimed in front of her supporters and her 8-year-old son, that she was “going to impeach the motherfu**er!” Tlaib, who has also served in the State House has gained a reputation of being a problem seeker, not a problem solver. Since her swearing in, Tlaib has sought the limelight blaming conservatives for the fake beating of actor Jussie Smollet as well as assigning blame on “white supremacy” for the Jersey City shooting which turned out was committed by two black individuals.
Tlaib has angered many who see her as being more loyal to her native Palestine (and very hostile to our greatest ally in the state of Israel) than she is to the residents of Michigan’s 13th Congressional District.
New bloat in state government a waste of time and effort.
From the still shaking-my-head dept.
Melanin content might soon have its own do-nothing department. ‘Racial justice’ warriors found their champions in our legislature, as the Michigan Senate found thirty-four willing huzzahs beating out the two belligerent harrumphs on 2015 senate bill 90.
Passed 34 to 2 in the Senate on January 14, 2016, to create an “Office of African-American Affairs” in the state Department of Civil Rights, and a government African-American Affairs Commission consisting of 15 political appointees who have “a particular interest or expertise in African-American concerns,” with the mission of developing “a unified policy and plan of action to serve the needs of African-Americans in this state”
§26 (2) The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.
And given that, it begs the question:
“What’s the point?” What might this commission accomplish outside of the areas that government has business operating in?
