Democrats rarely ever call out their own for insensitive comments.
With the help of the mainstream media, they typically wait for the story to die or pull out their signature “Republicans pounce” argument to switch the blame onto the GOP.
But now, this major Democrat just called out anti-white racism emanating from her own party.
Lori Lightfoot is the radically liberal mayor of Chicago, Illinois.
Lightfoot and her Democratic colleagues are peddling the idea that “whiteness” is inherently evil and racist.
They are promoting ideas like “Critical Race Theory,” which says all white people are naturally racist because of their skin color and the society they grew up in, even though no one has control over where they’re born.
To make matters worse, liberal ideologues like Lori Lightfoot want to implement this incredibly damaging and racist ideas into public schools, pitting our kids against each other.
Not only is Lightfoot promoting “Critical Race Theory,” she took it a step further by publicly stating she would no longer take interview requests from white reporters.
This obviously racist statement was met with silence from most Democrats, but luckily Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is principled enough to call out this policy for exactly what it is.
“Mayor Lightfoot’s blatant anti-white racism is abhorrent. I call upon President Biden, Kamala Harris, and other leaders of our country – of all races – to join me in calling for Mayor Lightfoot’s resignation. Our leaders must condemn all racism, including anti-white,” Gabbard wrote.

It’s no secret the Left has a strong anti-white bias, but it’s refreshing to see that at least one of their own has enough common sense to condemn racism when they see it.
Unsurprisingly, liberals on social media didn’t waste any time attacking Gabbard, claiming that people who call out anti-white racism are – you guessed it – racist for simply using the term.
I do want to point out that whenever white people label something as ‘anti-white’ it’s projecting their own strategies against POC to keep them out

But Gabbard is used to being attacked from the Left.
When she ran for President in 2020, her centrist positions were subject to ridicule from the Democrat establishment.
But what Democrats don’t understand is that bashing Gabbard for standing up against anti-white racism doesn’t make them look “woke” in the eyes of Americans, it just makes them look like the racists they actually are.
