Outgoing Minnesota GOP chairwoman claims she was subjected to slurs of ‘dragon lady and ch*nk’ from party officials and execs

Published

Minnesota Republican Party Chairwoman, Jennifer Carnahan, blasted her Republican colleagues on Facebook for calling her a “dragon lady,” and other racist slurs, reports the Star Tribune.

Carnahan is from South Korea and was adopted by her parents in Minnesota. She posted to her personal Facebook page on Friday that she has experienced racism and discrimination while serving in her term.

She listed out multiple occasions where people insulted her.

“Some (sadly) Republican Party leaders/executive committee members around this state have made racist comments, about me, and to me — calling me ‘dragon lady, a ch*nk, a stupid Asian not even born in America’ and other awful racial slurs,” she wrote.

She also said that while attending a rally for President Donald Trump, one of his supporters called her “disgusting.”

She also received hatful emails that said said she is “not worth a penny” and should  “crawl back into a hole and stay there.” It also said that she deserves to make less money than her male predecessors.

Her hope is that the party will finally learn how to work together. “I’m trying to bring a positive voice to the party and show the importance of working together and being positive,” Carnahan said.

Carnahan’s terns will end next year.

Published

It wasn’t slavery. They are concentration camps. Racial slurs are not a youthful indiscretion.

This week has seen a series of culture-war debates dominate the discourse only to be derailed by bad faith arguments about semantics.

First, on Monday, nearly all of the right-wing ecosystem was engaged to defend the honor of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior and gun rights activists Kyle Kashuv after he revealed that his admission to Harvard had been rescinded. At least one of Kashuv’s classmates in Parkland, Florida, released a number of text messages from him which included racist and misogynistic attacks on fellow students, including the description of black athletes as “niggerjocks.”

Pentagon gives senators classified briefing on UFOs reported by the Navy

Published

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.
