A Maryland lawmaker and member of the increasingly racist Democratic Party landed in hot water after using a racial slur to describe a part of a county in which a colleague had canvassed.
“Caucus members confronted Del. Mary Ann Lisanti (D) on Monday night over allegations that she told a white colleague, during an after-hours gathering at an Annapolis cigar bar, that when he campaigned in Prince George’s on behalf of a candidate last fall he was door-knocking in a ‘n—– district,'” according to The Washington Post.
The Jeff Bezos-owned blog said that Lisanti apologized for her comments, but also said that she did not recall ever saying what she was accused of saying. The half-apology is reminiscent of recently-outed racist Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam’s apology for appearing in blackface or a KKK hood in a medical school yearbook, and subsequent retraction of that apology during which he claimed that he was not in the photograph. Northam went on to admit that he had worn blackface at a Michael Jackson themed party on a separate occasion.
While Northam has received a pass for his racism, it appears that Lisanti is receiving similar treatment.
“She apologized several times,” said Delegate Darryl Barnes, also a Democrat. “She recognizes how she has hurt so many within the caucus, and she hoped to repent from this. She said that she doesn’t remember fully what happened, but she recognizes what happened.”
Any Republican, of course, would be crucified in press over such an incident until he or she was forced to resign. Apologies would not be enough to atone for the sin of racism.
The Post said that Lisanti did not return a comment request for Tuesday’s story, but that in the course of prior communications with The Post she did not deny using the word in the past.
“I’m sure I have. . . . I’m sure everyone has used it. I’ve used the f-word. I used the Lord’s name in vain,” she reportedly said.

GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor
On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”
Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”
Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
Robinson’s valiant defense of the Second Amendment in this instance turned him into a national icon and is likely going to propel him to victory in the 2020 General Election.
