Last night Mike Capuano, a ten-term Massachusetts congressman who was one of the most liberal members of the House, with a proven track record of supporting progressive causes, lost his primary race to Ayanna Pressley, who also ran as a progressive. In terms of ideology the two candidates were basically identical, and throughout the primary race the press repeatedly noted the lack of differences in how the candidates would likely vote on most major issues.

So what did Capuano in? He made the cardinal mistake of being a white male running against a black woman.

"“Congressman Mike Capuano has been a fine, progressive member of Congress, but having an experienced progressive like Ayanna Pressley on the ballot is an unmissable opportunity for Massachusetts to both ensure a leading woman of color represents its only majority-minority district and add the voice of just one person of color to New England’s currently all-white congressional delegation,” said Jim Dean, chair for Democracy for America, in a statement. Jonathan Cohn, co-chair of Progressive Massachusetts, explained that his group also endorsed Pressley over Capuano because of the “need for more diverse representation in Congress and the need for more activist leadership from Democrats in Congress.”

Justice Democrats, the new advocacy PAC spearheading progressive primary challenges across the country, endorsed Pressley over Capuano. Alexandra Rojas, a spokesperson for the group, said the group “would like to see fresh leadership, especially from women and people of color, in one of the few majority-minority districts in the country represented by a white man.”"

No matter how leftwing you are, no matter how well you represent your district, if you are a white male you are no longer welcome in the new Democratic Party. Sad!

PRESSLEY declined to take a position on an AIPAC-backed piece of legislation that would impose criminal and civil penalties on some of those involved in BDS activism. The candidate explained that she intends to support “courageous individuals and organizations, among both Israelis and Palestinians, committed to bringing peaceful coexistence to the region.”

CAPUANO took a stand against the anti-BDS bill, explaining that although he is not personally in support of using BDS tactics to pressure Israel, he opposes the anti-BDS bill on “First Amendment grounds” and believes “others should be free to advocate” for the movement."

If you are against AIPAC and pro First Amendment – then you are no longer welcome in the new Democratic Party. Sad!

He made the mistake of taking a stand against AIPAC's anti-First Amendment bill. At the least, the Zionists have not trashed him (yet) like they are doing with Corbyn in the UK.

Sometimes mountme's nazi-like zeal for all things Jewish is a bit disconcerting.

The White Genocide is proceeding apace. Beautiful. The grand alliance of Antifa and Social Justice Warriors have created the perfect global conspiracy.

Now, we must confiscate Rugian's guns and our master plan will be complete.

It is hard to tell if cuckhat is shitfaced when he posts or if he genuinely wants some great social realignment involving genocidal murder.

of course, he is also coming off his wife getting gang banged by a bunch of white dudes, so we gotta cut the guy some slack.

Do if all other things are equal, then democratic voters in certain districts will opt for diversity?

His district is 33% white.

In the new Congress, white representatives hold 44 of the 117 House seats where minorities equal a majority of the population, a Next America analysis has found. That's 38 percent.

By contrast, minority lawmakers represent only 15 of the 318 districts where whites represent a majority of the population. That's just 5 percent

I think it is fairly obvious that the only person still doing multi's in 2018 is mountme, because he is that much of a lazy, lame, unimaginative loser.

This is apparently JKF's and Tip O'neal old seat, which immediately reminded me of Jack Nicholson's opening rant in Departed, about irish, italians and blacks, remember that one? How one must take things, nobody gives you anything


"I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me. Years ago we had the church. That was only a way of saying – we had each other. The Knights of Columbus were real head-breakers; true guineas. They took over their piece of the city. Twenty years after an Irishman couldn’t get a fucking job, we had the presidency. May he rest in peace. That’s what the niggers don’t realize. If I got one thing against the black chappies, it’s this – no one gives it to you. You have to take it."

Yes it was about the race. The other candidate won.

jergul,

I didn't realize you were a millennial. Back in my day we learned to value individuals based on their merits rather than their skin color.

But fair enough. If we're now supposed to value candidates strictly along racial lines, you'll be fine with me and the rest of the white males in this country voting accordingly.

That is sort of what you have been doing for centuries now.

But were not the two candidates valued on their merit, and with merit being equal, the voters opted for diversity?

I thought we established that one of the didn't support AIPAC enough. With the pro Israel lobby being very strong, are we to believe this is a coincidence? OF COURSE THE JEWS DID THIS! Unless of course the black lady is more anti Israel. Then OF COURSE IT'S BECAUSE SHE IS A BLACK WOMAN!

And Jesus Christ, jergul, your definition of "diversity" is LITERALLY skin deep or whatever the depth of a vagina is.

I cannot fathom why anyone White and Male will want to vote for the Democratic party. Even if I agree with them on a range of economic and social issues, and can't really stand with a party that disdains me for my race and gender.

"I cannot fathom why anyone White and Male"

Allies of course. AKA Cucks.

Honestly Aeros, it isn't the democratic party, but the fringe at their tail that they flirt with. Everyone does it, thinking they can control them, but once you cross the shitline a correction will follow. You need more parties.

My idea of diversity is that positions of power and influence should reflect the population as a whole.

What % of the world's population would be older white guys if that was true today? 60%? 70%?

nim is correct, i know a lot of dems who are completely disgusted by what the left is doing. BUT. they are most disgusted by what trump does, or rather, how the media portrays trump. they think he is anti gay anti black and anti anything positive. it is amazing, the media is keeping the democrat party afloat.

Alright, last time i acknowledge this stalker. All i wanna do is point out, dude what would you do if i stopped posting? Not exaggerating, you stalk me on a daily basis. On a daily basis it runs into your mind to see if ive posted. Not only is that creepy, but it is sad to think of some dude waiting for me to post domething so he could react in a predictable manner.

"Reflected", as in the color that is reflected off of their skin, is your marker for the "population".

I understood you perfectly the first time. You are entitled to your point of view of course, but I find it a bit shallow. My momma always told me it is the inside that counts.

No, you did not understand me perfectly the first time, nor the second time for that matter.

But that is completely ok.

jergul,

nimatzo basically covered what I was going to say. I'll merits add that your claim that the two were "equal" only holds merit if you think that twenty years of incumbency counts for nothing.
