Charlotte, NC — It looks like the Left is returning to their old racist ways!  That Democratic Congressional candidate I’m referring to Liam O’Mara.  O’Mara is running for the 42nd district in California and Gomorrah.  O’Mara sent a picture of a Ku Klux Klan hood to Candace Owens via Twitter yesterday.

You’re likely wondering what would possess someone to do such a pathetic and racist act, right?  Would it surprise you to know that O’Mara has his PhD and is a college professor?  O’Mara was responding to a tweet posted by Owens on Monday where she argued that the “#1 violent offenders against black people are other black people. The #1 violent offenders against Asian Americans are also black people. But both #BlackLivesMatter and #AsianLivesMatter are campaigns dedicated to stomping out white supremacy because, clown world.”

The racist candidate argued that Owens was “recycling explicitly white supremacist arguments.”

“Whole lot of interesting comments here that read like the ‘cancel culture’ gripes we keep seeing from the right. Each miss the point that Candace is recycling explicitly white supremacist arguments. I study extremist rhetoric for a living, and this stuff is really dangerous,” he wrote.

Naturally, Owens reported this tweet to Twitter alleging that it violated their subjective and peppery applied community standards.  That’s right!  Twitter is perfectly okay with racism being openly perpetrated on their platform.  But don’t take my word for it.  Check out their tweet and her response for yourself.

For everyone that is suing @Twitter for clear cut bias- they have written to me to let me know that sending klansmen hoods to black people does not violate any of their rules. Racism is okay on this platform. Thanks @TwitterSafety! pic.twitter.com/UsQeU3ENi0

Soon O’Mara — who subsequently claimed Owens “is recycling explicitly white supremacist arguments” — was feeling the heat from Twitter users, including Owens herself.

When one commenter wrote of O’Mara, “Pretty sure this a hate crime in California,” Owens offered the following observation:

Pretty sure a white man dropping a klansmen hood off to target a black woman is a hate crime everywhere. I wonder if I could file a police report against him in CA?

“Pretty sure a white man dropping a klansmen hood off to target a black woman is a hate crime everywhere,” she noted. “I wonder if I could file a police report against him in CA?”

Another user answered Owens: “I sure as hell would..it is definitely a hate crime..GOD..what the hell is going on?”

Others also weighed in on the bigoted and racist comment O’Mara made:

  • “You seriously just tweeted this to a black woman?” one commenter asked. “You need help.”
  • “Racist Democrats back at it again with racist tweets,” another commenter noted. “Who would’ve guessed that Liam the Racist Democrat hates black people.”
  • “Being from the south, this is one of the most insulting things you could ever do to a person of color,” another user said. “We approach things like this with far more sensitivity due to our past, but let me tell you, that is racist and has no place in this country. In no way is that amusing.”
  • “Can only imagine what the response would be if a Republican Congressional representative sent a picture of a Klan hoodie to an African-American commentator,” another user observed. “I’m glad that we’re consistent on our outrage.”
  • “The fact you went out and searched for this, and it is STILL up after how long? should show people that you have 0 REMORSE for your actions, that you are refusing any kind of accountability. You say ‘it’s inappropriate,’ but here we are, and it’s still up,” another commenter said Tuesday afternoon.
  • “This is beyond racist. Reported. But legal investigation must be started,” another user declared.

But wait!  There’s more!  O’Mara in one of his subsequent tweets wrote that “I study extremist rhetoric for a living, and this stuff is really dangerous.” But another commenter wasn’t buying his assessment.

“What is dangerous is a white guy trying to intimidate a black woman because he disagrees with her,” the commenter shot back. “Reminds me of the 1920s when the KKK-affiliated groups were erecting statues of confederates to keep the black people ‘in their place.’ …As a history guy, you should know that.”

Another user answered Owens: “I sure as hell would..it is definitely a hate crime..GOD..what the hell is going on?”

Others expressed similar sentiments:

  • “You seriously just tweeted this to a black woman?” one commenter asked. “You need help.”
  • “Racist Democrats back at it again with racist tweets,” another commenter noted. “Who would’ve guessed that Liam the Racist Democrat hates black people.”
  • “Being from the south, this is one of the most insulting things you could ever do to a person of color,” another user said. “We approach things like this with far more sensitivity due to our past, but let me tell you, that is racist and has no place in this country. In no way is that amusing.”

But O’Mara insisted that he’s “not trying to intimidate anyone. I was trying to call attention to efforts to do that, so quite the opposite. It hurts that we still have this kind of violent racist rhetoric in America.”

The commenter wasn’t convinced, however: “You tweeted a white hood at a black woman because you disagree with her. That’s not the opposite of calling attention to a**holes who intimidate and try to silence black people. It hurts that you are stupid enough to keep defending your stupid actions. You need to apologize.”

With that, O’Mara said “I have, and will continue to apologize, sure. It was easily misunderstood and offensive, and I apologize to anyone offended by the image and tweet.”

Apparently, blatant, racist bigotry is easily misunderstood.  I’m sure the reaction by the legacy media would be equally proportional if Candace Owens was still a black liberal, right?  I wonder if he will be fired from his job?  All questions we would know the answer to if some of the factors were different in this story.

Sadly, it shouldn’t be.
