Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen evidence of how scared Democrats are of Larry Elder, but this takes the cake.
The liberal Los Angeles Times newspaper is calling Elder, who is black, the face of white supremacy.
Democrats know that Gavin Newsom is in serious trouble with the people of California and their attacks on Larry Elder are just getting more and more desperate.
From the Los Angeles Times:
Column: Larry Elder is the Black face of white supremacy. You’ve been warned
Larry Elder smiled the smug smile of a Black conservative who could very well be liberal California’s next governor.
“Where do you start with the damage Gavin Newsom has done to the state that we both love?”
He leaned forward to gaze across the room of white Republicans who had come to a hear him speak in Orange County.
“Rising crime? (It’s) because of this phony narrative that the police are engaging in systemic racism and cops are pulling back,” Elder said. “… When you reduce the possibility of a bad guy getting caught, getting convicted and getting incarcerated, guess what? Crime goes up.”
Then another smile, this one even more smug than the last.
“Can you say, ‘Duh?’”
I won’t lie. Few things infuriate me more than watching a Black person use willful blindness and cherry-picked facts to make overly simplistic arguments that whitewash the complex problems that come along with being Black in America…
“He is a danger, a clear and present danger,” said Melina Abdullah, cofounder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles.
What a racist and vile column. Larry Elder shrugged it off.
In today’s LA Times.

On related note, Gavin Newsom has invited Kamala Harris to California to campaign on his behalf.

That might not work out the way Newsom is planning.
