Lawmaker from Detroit sues Whitmer, fellow Democrats over censure after she met with President Trump

State Rep. Karen Whitsett, D-Detroit, filed a federal lawsuit Thursday against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and several fellow Democrats, claiming violations of free speech and defamation.

Specifically, Whitsett claimed Whitmer and the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Organization sought to deprive her of her right to engage in protected speech after she publicly thanked President Donald Trump for his suggestion of using the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat her coronavirus case.....

1. I'm going to have to invest in whoever is manufacturing Red Pills.

They seem to becoming very popular. Even Talcum X is trying them!




Here's the whole thread:

"Shaun King
@shaunking
It pains me to say this, but I have found the Georgia Republicans in leadership to be far more responsive under pressure in the Ahmaud Arbery case than the key Kentucky Democrats in leadership in the Breonna Taylor case.

Every single decision maker in Georgia was a Republican.

In Louisville, Kentucky where Breonna Taylor was killed, we have a Democratic Governor, a Democratic Mayor in Louisville, and a Democratic District Attorney.

And they have each done a half step above nothing, crumbs really, for Breonna Taylor and her family.

Itís infuriating.

Not a single Democrat in power right now in Kentucky would be there without the near unanimous support of Black voters.

And yet the Democratic Mayor, Governor, and DA have been pretty much all talk for months on Breonna Taylor. And theyíve hardly even talked, to be honest.

Guess who made the single strongest statement on the ludicrous no-knock warrant used to murder Breonna Taylor from a national politician?

It was RAND PAUL.

The Republican Senator from Kentucky. Not a Democrat.

He said they should be banned altogether. Nationwide.

Painful.

Iím not about to become a Republican, but Iím also not going to have Democrats slap us in the face and pretend I like it.

Democrats think they can half ass, or flat out ignore the needs and demands of Black folk, and that we will take it silently.

I refuse. They must step up."

He may be closer to leaving the plantation than he thinks.

2. "They must step up". Or what?

He stated he will not become a Republican so what power does he think he has if they do not step up? Is he going to sit home on election day? Depending on where he lives that could put a Rep in office.

African Americans are currently at a political cross roads.

1. They can continue to vote 90+ percent for Dems and be taken for granted and accept diminished political power
2. They can stay home on election day and accept no political power
3. They can start voting Rep, even if for just a few election cycles. That would scare the shit of the Dems and maximize their political power as the Reps fight to keep a slice of the AA vote and the Dems fight to get back to the good ole days of 90+ percent of the AA vote going for Dems

3. And that's what Shaun King and others like him are going to have to understand.

I very much doubt there are many, if any, Democratic politicians on the national stage who look at their black voters with benevolence. They may not have contempt for them, but they do feel that they are owed fealty and votes because they are the historically "anti-racist" party. And most of the so called "leaders" of the black community have given over their souls to the party in order to enrich themselves. I don't see any mass movement from Democrat to Republican from the black community any time soon. But I'm confident we'll see a slow shift rightward, as more of the community realize how little their loyalty is getting them.
