USA: The Virginia Lt. Gov.-Elect Winsome Sears (R) who won an historic victory this week, urged that she is “destroying all of the narratives about race,” that Democrats are using to attack Republicans, and challenged MSNBC’s resident race baiter Joy Reid to a debate, after Reid spent Tuesday night complaining that all Republican campaigns are centred on ‘white nationalism’.
In a Fox News appearance, Sears, the first black female to ever win the position of Lt. Gov. in the state of Virginia, declared “I’m destroying all of the narratives about race. Look at me, I am a heartbeat away from the governorship in case anything happens to the governor. And how are you going to tell me then, I’m a victim?”
She continued, “I didn’t do anything special to get here except stay in school and study. I took advantage of the opportunities that are available here in America. I wasn’t born here. This is not my culture, not my country. But it allowed me — America allowed me to come and do for myself and for my family.”
“No one can say to me I don’t know what it is to be poor,” Sears said, adding “You’re looking at the American Dream. So, we can do better. And it’s not 1963 when my father came at the height of the Civil Rights movement, 17 days before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.”
She continued, “We’re better than that. We’re always going to have problems. I understand that. I’m not saying we’re perfect, but you can see those people at the border, right now, trying to get in. They’re dying to get in. Because they know if they can put a foot on American soil, the trajectory of their lives will change, just as it did for my father.”
Turning to the MSNBC anchor, Sears “I wish Joy Reid would invite me on her show. Let’s see if she’s woman enough to do that. I’d go in a heartbeat and we’d have a real discussion without Joy speaking about me behind my back, if you will.”
“She talks about white supremacy. Does she know that I ran against a white supremacist? I mean, Joy, come on, get your facts straight and then come talk to me,” Sears further emphasised.
Sears explained that Democrats’ obsession with race “just continues to divide us,” adding that “Unfortunately, politicians are using it as a tool, because of the things that have happened to us historically, to advance, I would think, their nefarious purposes.”
Sears’ comments followed on from her rousing victory speech in which she described how Democrats want to divide Americans along race lines.
“They would like us to believe we are back in 1963,” she said, adding “In case you haven’t noticed, I am black, and I have been black all my life. But that’s not what this is about.”
