In case you’re still wondering if Ed Mullins is an ardent and fervent supporter of the Conman, he was and still is very openly, but also, pay closer attention to that pic in the top tweet posted above and what Mullins made sure to include behind him while being interviewed by Fox News:
That’s a Qanon mug.
How much of a disgusting bigot is Ed Mullins, you might wonder? Let the Representative of New York’s 15th District and first openly gay Afro-Latino elected to Congress, Ritchie Torres, explain:
“It was not immediately clear why the FBI targeted the SBA and Mullins’ home. The FBI spokesperson told the New York Daily News that the agency was “carrying out a law enforcement action in connection with an ongoing investigation.”
Members of the public corruption unit of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York were also involved in the raid, The New York Times reported.
Around 1 p.m., the pair of agents lugging large brown cardboard boxes were seen leaving the union’s headquarters and walking to the FBI’s base in lower Manhattan.”
White Supremacy is very much an intricate part of American society. It is deeply rooted and engrained. It is present everywhere, it is part of the poor, the working class, the middle class, and the rich; it is part of leadership, it is part of every lever of the government and law enforcement, and nothing will effectively abolish it if you don’t have the courage to deal with it specifically. Whenever you refuse to address the root causes if this illness that is racism by shifting the attention away from it, you help protect it, give it more power, legitimize it.
To affect real change, you need effective leadership at the helm of every lever of government and law enforcement that refuse to give cover to those driven by bigotry, abusing the very people they swore an oath to serve and protect. You need the kind of representation that does not hide from America’s reality or ugliest more uncomfortable truths, that refuses to coddle Privilege and Entitlement, and understands that healing starts with first holding accountable the monsters perpetuating white supremacy’s vilest tenets.
Have a great Wednesday, Politicadoes!
