‘If we are to end white supremacy, we must contend with its violent, feminine forms…’
(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi is facing a runoff election later this month against Democrat Mike Espy. Since Espy is black and Hyde-Smith is white, the race is getting plenty of outside money and “social justice” attention—none more loony than at the Huffington Post.

In an opinion article published this week, Huffington Post columnist Jessie Daniels wrote that Hyde-Smith represents “the power white women held during [Mississippi’s] reign of terror” during the Jim Crow era.
Hyde-Smith was appointed in April to fill retired Republican Sen. Thad Cochran’s seat.
But her special election campaign ran into a public-relations problem last week when videos surfaced of her making remarks tailor-made for the social-justice-obsessed Left.
In one video, Hyde-Smith says that if she were invited by one of her supporters to a “public hanging,” she would be in “the front row.”
In the other she is heard telling a group of supporters that “there’s a lot of liberal folks in those other schools who that maybe we don’t want to vote. Maybe we want to make it just a little more difficult. So, I think that’s a great idea.”
Whether her “hanging” comment should be taken at face value, or is intentionally taken out of context, or is “an exaggerated expression of regard,” as Hyde-Smith claims, Democratic political action committees are capitalizing on the negative press and funneling millions of dollars into helping her Democratic opponent flip the state’s U.S. senate seat.
Strangely, screaming “white supremacy” seems to be the ugly rallying cry used to motivate Mississippi’s large African-American population to vote against her.
HuffPo’s Jessie Daniels, who appears to be a woman, is a professor at The City University of New York, a taxpayer-funded system of colleges in New York City.
In her widely circulated piece, Daniels claims that Hyde-Smith isn’t an anomaly, but that white women in general are ardent supporters of “white supremacy.”
“The image that most people conjure when they think of ‘white supremacy’ is of a man in a Klan robe or marching at Charlottesville carrying a Tiki torch. And if we think of women upholding white supremacy at all, it is in the angry faces of women who opposed integration in the 1950s and busing in the 1970s,” Daniels said.
“But the truth is that white women have always been ardent proponents of violent white supremacy, and they continue to be some of its most vocal advocates,” she added.
Daniels, who is white, appears obsessed with white people. She seems to label any white person who would disagree with her bizarre left-wing views as a white supremacist.
Several of her recent articles include, “The GOP’s closing argument for the midterm elections is white supremacy,” “What white crime family shows like ‘Ozark’ teach us about whiteness,” and “White supremacy is deadly for everyone.”
Daniels’s rant about the ills of “whiteness” isn’t just limited to Hyde-Smith. She also attacks several other prominent women including Kirstjen Nielsen, a national security expert currently serving as the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Rather than applaud the high-achievement Nielsen has earned in her career, Daniels took aim at her skin color.
“Kirstjen Nielsen is the white woman currently presiding over prison camps of children whose families have fled brutal violence in Central America,” she said.
Daniels also blamed Democratic midterm election losses in Texas, Georgia and Florida on racist white women, and somehow made the argument that GOP voting women are guilty of violence.
“We have to face up to the hard-edged reality of the violence of white women’s supremacy,” Daniels said.
“If we are to end white supremacy, we must contend with its violent, feminine forms,” she added.
Voters will head to the polls in a week and hopefully vote their conscience on whoever the best candidate is for state of Mississippi—race and gender notwithstanding.
