Democrat Admits To Owning Systemic Racism "It's A Tradition"

We've been hearing a lot about "systemic racism" lately, especially from progressives in Congress. For instance, let's consider Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), who has had a few things to say on the subject in relation to the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. Whitehouse also belongs to a group called the Bailey's Speech Club, which has no members of color at all.

This has come up in Whitehouse's political career since 2006, when he promised to resign from Bailey's Beach Club as well as another all-white social club. Instead, he and his wife promised to "take that up privately" with the other shareholders, even while opining on the Senate floor about systemic racism last summer.

It was just a matter of time before this went viral, and yesterday was the day:

U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse continues to defend his family's membership in the all-white private Bailey's Beach Club in Newport.

GoLocal interviewed Whitehouse on Friday in Pawtucket and when asked if the private club had admitted any minorities since GoLocal first raised the issue in 2017, Whitehouse said, "I think the people who are running the place are still working on that and I'm sorry it hasn't happened yet."

Both Whitehouse and his wife Sandra as well as their families have been members of the club for decades. Whitehouse did transfer his shares in the club to his wife years ago, and she is now one of the largest shareholders in the all-white club. The club's membership is a who's who Newport, Palm Beach, and New York wealth.

"It's a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them and I think we just need to work our way through the issues, thank you," said Whitehouse as he was ushered away by a staffer.

The problem I have is that Democrats want to make THEIR racism and bigotry, everyone else's.

Yep, and I believe it's backfiring big time.

And the clintons and the bidens have lots of connections to that club, being good friends with many of them.
