ABC’s Chief Political Analyst is facing backlash after writing an opinion piece calling for “white male Christians” to give up all power.
“I would humbly suggest that we as white male Christians take it upon ourselves to step back and give more people who don’t look like us access to the levers of power,” said Matthew Dowd.
“We as white male Christians should do what real leadership demands and practice a level of humility which demonstrates strength by stepping back from the center of the room and begin to give up our seats at the table,” he wrote.
Factually speaking, there is no scientifically researched link between race and “power.” Of course, Dowd does not specify what he means by “power.” Does he mean wealth? If so, Asian Americans and Indian Americans both, as a race, out-earn whites. “Power” is achieved not through a collective based on skin color, but rather by the individual, regardless of skin color.
Twitter was not buying what Dowd was selling.
“OK, you go first, said Commentary writer Sohrab Ahmari.
“Don’t you love that when liberals say things like this, they are never, ever referring to themselves? I mean, Dowd isn’t giving up his gig at ABC and moving to a shack in rural Montana, right?” said John Hawkins of PJ Media.
“No one is stopping you from quitting your job to make room,” said the Legal Insurrection blog.

Dowd plodded through the piece with every tired leftist talking point in the book.
“We don’t have to wait, and our country is in desperate need of more diverse leaders,” he said. “It is that diverse leadership which will not only represent more of what America looks like today, but it will give us the opportunity to find solutions which homogenous models of leadership aren’t able to.”
He offered no proof to back this claim.
“We don’t need to be the CEO of nearly every major company in America,” he said. “We don’t need to be the majority of the people who hold political power. We don’t need to be President. We don’t need to be a Supreme Court Justice. We don’t need to be the ones who dominate conversations and run the meetings.”
Notice Dowd is not advocating for more female construction workers, a trade that is 98% male. Why don’t we just have a meritocracy and let natural selection do what it does best?
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
