Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Larry Elder: Can somebody text Dr. Martin Luther King… ?

Wow. Listen to this:

Yesterday in Los Angeles, California, black gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder was threatened by a mob on a campaign stop. According to Elder, “my security detail was physically assaulted, shot with a pellet gun and hit with projectiles.”

What stood out to me in the altercation was that one member of the mob — apparently a white woman who threw an egg at Elder — was wearing a gorilla mask.

Now why would she do that?

As we’ve discussed before, the vile trope that blacks are somehow closer to apes than other races has deep roots in Darwinian biology and social theory. Charles Darwin himself made the argument in The Descent of Man. You can find more about the history of this dehumanizing and racist idea by watching my documentary Human Zoos.

The blacks-as-apes trope is used by some on the right and left alike. In 2018, we called out actress Roseanne Barr’s loathsome comparison of Obama Administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape.

Now we call out a progressive white activist in California who is trying to stigmatize a conservative black man as an ape.

Here’s the film. So far as we know, it is still available at YouTube, owned by Google, despite problems.

California should be entitled to a respectable election. Or is the point that Big Tech wants to just plain OWN it? No matter what?

There is a rather lengthy list, which includes 'Trail of Tears' and the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago which resulted in police dogs and fire hoses being used against mostly peaceful protestors to keep black people away from where the Democrats were meeting. I've yet to find the turning point where the Republicans supposedly became Democrats. FDR continued all of Wilson's policies, including segregation, and surrounded himself with people who hated Jews. Truman's entire inherited cabinet threatened to quit if Truman welcomed Israel as a nation. It couldn't have been the Dixiecrats becoming Republican, since they went back to being Democrats with not a single Dixiecrat state voting for Eisenhower. BobRyan
BobR “Congressman Cedric Richmond “boy” who is one his advisors and happens to be black. Further evidence of Biden’s racism that is largely ignored, since he is a Democrat” That Joe Biden is a racist is beyond dispute. Besides calling the ex Klansman and former Democrat speaker of the house his mentor and eulogizing him at his funeral here is further evidence of his racism. “ The two party system in the South was good for the NEGRO” “ If there is an orderly integration my children are going to grow up in a jungle, a racial jungle” “It doesn’t matter whether they are victims ( referring to blacks as predators) of society the end result is their about to knock my mother on the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife take on my son. So I don’t want to ask what made them do this they must be taken off the streets.. if we don’t they will or least a portion of them will become predators….and madam President we have predators on our streets” “ If you don’t vote for me you ain’t black” And the most outrageous of them all about Obama in front of Obama. One can only wonder what Obama was thinking when he said this? “ The first mainstream African American that is ARTICULATE and BRIGHT and CLEAN , a nice looking guy” WTHeck!! He was the cosponsor of the 1994 crime bill that resulted in the mass incarceration of black men and pro segregation.But no one should be surprised after all he is a Democrat, the party of Dread Scott Nullification Secession Slavery The Klan Woodrow Wilson the first progressive and a racist Eugenics Internment Segregation Jim Crow and Robert Byrd the Grand Wizard of the Klan and former Democrat speaker of the house Vivid vividbleau
Seversky, The OP is about the clearly racist attack on a black Republican candidate that has gotten almost no coverage about the racist part of the attack. In this day of race obsessed, why did this not get the same coverage that other incidents get with far less evidence of being racially motivated? When democrats use racially motivated language, like Biden calling former Congressman Cedric Richmond "boy" who is one his advisors and happens to be black. Further evidence of Biden's racism that is largely ignored, since he is a Democrat. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-calls-black-adviser-boy BobRyan
I see the right is already prepping a stolen election defense if they lose in California. Maybe we should be taking a closer look at the 2016 election results. Seversky
