Former Democrat congressional candidate Saira Rao alleged that “white people” have made her life “miserable,” questioned why she’s not supposed to hate them — and added that the American flag nauseates her.
Rao, who unsuccessfully ran as a candidate in Colorado in 2018 to unseat incumbent Diana DeGette, sent out a series of bitter social media ramblings over the weekend.
“The American flag makes me sick,” Rao wrote Sunday on a Twitter timeline she has since made “protected.”
She followed that up with, “White people have done everything to make my life miserable. Yet I’m supposed to not hate white people?”
Rao is no stranger to controversy, in our view, having shown signs of her racist tendencies shortly after her congressional race.
She retweeted a New York Times op-ed that asked the question: “Should I Give Up On White People?”
The Democrat added the caption: “Short and long answer: YES.”
Rao said she was simply trying to convey the message that stopping racism is the job of white people, not minorities.
“It is incumbent upon white people to dismantle white supremacy. Black and brown people cannot do that. We have been toiling and toiling and toiling, and it’s still there,” she told Colorado Public Radio.
“When you call out institutional oppression, when you call out white supremacism, when you call out racism, that’s not racist,” she said in a highly racist manner.
Rao alleged that her tweet led to death threats and the need to pack up and move her family from Colorado.
This gem of a racist was supported in her bid for Congress by Justice Democrats, a far-Left political action committee (PAC) co-founded by Saikat Chakrabarti, chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
As co-founder of In This Together Media, Rao has made significant contributions to some other prominent Democrats.
The Center for Responsive Politics reveals that she donated $250 to Barack Obama in 2008, and another $1,000 to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
She also made contributions to 2020 presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar back in 2017 for the max amount of $2,700.
Rao also co-founded a club called Race To Dinner, in which white women join private dinner parties so they can sit and be forced to listen to why they are racist from “black and brown women.”
“Until and unless white folks are willing to bear witness to the pain they’ve caused, we will never see change,” the site reads. “The system of oppression will remain safely in place until white people — ALL WHITE PEOPLE — are willing to acknowledge their complicity.”
Klobuchar might want to consider returning that money at the risk of being associated with this nut case.
