Maryland Lawmaker Describes County as ‘N***** District’

Another Democrat appears to be getting a pass for obvious racism.

Published

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.

Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel

Post-pandemic America will not look the same.

Published

on

Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.

In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates. 

Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.” 

Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.

According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”

Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:

If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.  

Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain. 

If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
