The left loves to play the race card. That they do it so often and they lose all credibility when they do it bothers them not one bit.
Take AOC and Omar and the Squad – they called Nancy Pelosi racist. Now say what you will about Pelosi, when they did that the squad lost all credibility.
Look at Kamala Harris calling Biden a racist too – the left will play the race card on whoever is the lesson, friend or foe, to get what they want.
But when the left makes racists comments we cannot complain and are just supposed to live with it and not call out their hypocrisy.
Thankfully Kirstie Alley was not going to let Bette Midler get away with the double standard this time.
Bette Midler has once again sparked controversy online over a joking comment she made regarding the support from President Donald Trump from some in the black community.
Earlier this week, Midler, an outspoken critic of Trump’s, shared a photo taken from a campaign rally and expressed her surprise at seeing so many black men in attendance.
“Look, there are African American men in this shot!you How much did he pay them to be ‘blackground’?” the 72-year-old singer and actress quipped, seemingly making a pointed remark about the president’s recent racist remarks and how that could reflect on 2020 election results.
Midler’s joke caused a backlash against conservatives, who pointed out that political ideology and race do not necessarily go hand-in-hand.
Among the many who spoke out against Midler included Kirstie Alley, who previously endorsed Trump ahead of the last election, only to later reverse her position.
“This is one of the most racist, degrading “jokes” I’ve seen on Twitter & that’s saying a lot.” Alley, 68, wrote in response to the Tweet.
The actress went on to point out that while Midler has her own strong opinions about Trump and those who support him, that doesn’t necessarily line up with reality.
“We get it Bette, you hate Trump & that’s your right but to imply Black men have to be PAID to celebrate their OWN political views is pure and REAL racism. And “BLACKGROUND”?? WTF??!!” she added.
