The party that just kept schools closed for a year knowing that this would cause irreparable learning loss that would fall disproportionately on black and Hispanic children wants you to know that it’s a shocking instance of racist harm when Mitch McConnell leaves an adjective implied. Dems response to what they have no legitimate or logical response is "racism."
The latest media-Democratic party controversy is so stupid it’s scarcely worth the very small effort it takes to shred it, but here goes: Senate GOP leader McConnell, according to the headlines in the Daily Beast, Business Insider, Axios and so on, “says black people vote just as much as ‘Americans’.”
Except that isn’t what he said. “If you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans,” McConnell said. Not “black people,” headline writers, “African-Americans.” If McConnell does not consider African Americans to be Americans, then it’s pretty weird that he called them Americans, modified by the adjective African.
If McConnell said Kentuckians “vote at the same rate as Americans,” he would kind of take for granted that you know Kentucky is in America. He would not need to stipulate “at the same rate as Americans overall,” because your IQ would have to rest at an Olbermannian level to think he was suggesting that Kentucky is in some other country.
Yet Democratic officials and their increasingly frantic, gotta-rescue-this-doomed-party-by-November media cheerleaders are trying to make a thing of this. Yawn. It won’t work. Webster’s Third International Dictionary stopped defining “unflappable” about 30 years ago. Now they just provide a picture of Mitch. Mitch gargles with hydrochloric acid and wipes his butt with steel wool. He won’t be cowed, flummoxed or frightened.
