Last night, for reasons I’m not even curious about, all the Democrat women in Congress made a fashion and/or political statement by wearing white. And least one man wore white, too, but often one is hard-pressed to tell the difference between Democrat men and women (see Peter Daou and Ian Millhiser, for example). The real irony was seeing the two virulent anti-Semites, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib pair their white garb with blue accents, replicating Israel’s national colors.

Given the hostility the group showed to low black and Hispanic unemployment and their lust for killing undesirable children, inevitable comparisons were made to another organization that favored white robes.
Here’s another take on the theme.

This is one of the few redeeming features of Twitter. It allows anyone to poke fun at anyone else’s politics. But a BuzzFeed harridan was not impressed by the humor.
Twitter is allowing this altered photo comparing women members of Congress who wore white to the State of the Union to the KKK to circulate on its platform despite its own policy that doesn't allow “symbols historically associated with hate groups.”https://t.co/60aFpx4OJl pic.twitter.com/Z4RVBsFyKa

This headline Lawmakers In KKK Hoods Is Spreading And Twitter Is Refusing To Stop It sounds exactly like my kids sometimes. More from “BuzzFeed News Reporter” Jane Lytvynenko who reacts to the picture like she has a cactus firmly wedged in her buttcrack.
Twitter is allowing an altered photo comparing women members of Congress who wore white to the State of the Union to the KKK to continue to circulate on its platform on Wednesday despite its own policy that doesn’t allow “symbols historically associated with hate groups.”
Members of Congress — mostly Democratic women — wore white clothing on Tuesday night to honor the suffragist movement. The image, which first aired on the far-right conspiracy outlet Infowars, photoshopped white Klan-style hoods on the women. Its most popular iteration was spread on Twitter by radio host Mark Simone to his 175,000 followers. It was also shared by Katrina Pierson, a former Trump spokesperson who is a senior adviser to the president’s reelection campaign, and by Ann Coulter.
But Twitter’s hateful imagery policy doesn’t allow “symbols historically associated with hate groups.”
This is a new thing with leftwing reporters. Anytime the get offended they run to the SJW mafia at Twitter to get protection. Like this douchebag:
"Learn to code" was tweeted at me by a sketchy account. I reported it as abusive behavior as part of targeted harassment. Twitter suspended the account within 20 minutes.
Journalists if they tweet "learn to code" at you don't stay silent, take a moment to report it. https://t.co/RXgqqV2ptw

I have no doubt that Twitter will inevitably decide to suspend or lock the accounts of everyone who has RTed the image because increasingly Twitter is simply a weaponization of SJW pieties.* So anytime anyone tells you to feel sorry for one of these jerks, just laugh in their face an tell them to go learn to code.
(Full Disclosure: I’m a little pissed at Twitter because my account is locked because a bunch of p***ies reported me for merely speculating on the heroic sex life of the mother of one the gang.)
I’m on Facebook. Drop by and join the fun there.
