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?
YET ANOTHER HOAX: Oregon County Commissioner Candidate Charged With Faking Racist Letter, Filing False Police Report
Another hate hoax.
An Oregon candidate for Umatilla County commissioner has been charged with filing a false police report after Hermiston Police determined that he faked a racist letter that he claimed to have recieved. Jonathan Lopez posted an image of an anti-Latino letter supposedly sent to him after running for county commissioner, an election in which he finished in fourth place in May.
“Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other (expletive) Mexicans in the area,” read the hate-filled, yet inauthentic screed. “Sincerely, America!”
Lopez tried to brush over the dishonest behavior in a discussion with the East Oregonian, claiming that he was trying to make a point about “racism” in the area by performing the hoax. “I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” said the former candidate. Lopez argued he never meant to “mislead” the public.
Police Chief Jason Edmiston described Lopez as having admitted that the letter was fraudulent. “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media. The end result is a verbal and written admission by Mr. Lopez that the letter was fabricated.”
Hermiston Police also suspect Lopez of fabricating claims of serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, advertising himself as a veteran in official election documents distributed to the citizens of Umatilla County. Falsely claiming the status of a veteran for the purposes of a political campaign is a violation of the 2013 Stolen Valor Act.
The Oregon man has been charged with a single count of filing a false police report, having reported the inauthentic letter to police.
Lopez’s public Facebook profile was removed in the days following the announcement of criminal charges.
