From the second Joe Biden became the presumptive nominee, the former vice president has been hit with non-stop calls for him to tap a running mate who fits into the radical Left’s current identity politics mold.
Biden’s advisers are telling him that the most important characteristics of a great vice-presidential candidate aren’t intelligence, leadership, experience, or understanding of the Constitution. Pft! Instead, these overpriced “advisers” are telling Biden he should choose a woman, preferably a black woman.
Identity politics almost guarantees you won’t get the best person for the job, and that’s important if you really care about the job you want to do for the American people. When you narrow the list down to two specific categories; race and gender, but more importantly, specific race and gender, you’re knocking out a whole lot of people who could be better for the job. It goes without saying that you could also find the best person for the job within the narrowed criteria, but the odds are against it.
It’s been reported that Biden has narrowed the contenders to a shortlist of three black women, so it could be any one of them… unless it’s Representative Val Demings (D-FL), who was in the past Orlando’s first female police chief from 2007 to 2011.
What do the radical leftists have against Demings? I already said. She was the first female police chief for Orlando.
Folks, the vice president is the second top law enforcement officer of the country, next to the president, and they don’t want a former police chief to be picked. Let that sink in.
Consider the riots going on all across the country over the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers that has thousands of radical Marxists fighting for racial justice and the dismantling and/or defunding of police departments. The radical Marxist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) has been leading many of the anti-cop riots.
According to The Hill, progressives are not too thrilled with Demings’ law enforcement history, “questioning whether someone who spent a decades-long career in law enforcement is right for this moment.”
“While she was chief of police, I felt like public policies and changes to address community policing should have been done,” said the president of the Central Florida chapter of the National Action Network Lawanna Gelzer. NAN is race hustler Al Sharpton’s network. “It was not,” Gelzer added. “We’ve had a problem here for years.”
Gelzer stated if Demings gets the nod, then Biden won’t get her vote.
“I will go vote, but I will not vote for her if she’s on that ticket,” said Gelzer. She also said that the nominee should stop listening to law enforcement.
“Biden needs to listen to the people of Orlando and of Florida and elsewhere — not law enforcement — at this time,” Gelzer said.
Black Lives Matter activists told the Hill they’re also not impressed with Demings.
Co-founder of BLM’s Greater New York chapter, Hawk Newsome, told The Hill, “She’s a cop. She was a top cop at an extremely brutal police department. She was a vocal supporter of brutal actions by police.”
After which he made it clear that someone cannot be both black and a cop.
Sounds like he saying, “If you’re a cop, you ain’t black.” Where’s Charlamagne tha God when you need him?
“We are working to abolish the police. We are working to defund the police. When you are a police officer, you are not black anymore. You are blue,” Newsome said.
