Verified Hate: August 2019 Edition

Dayna Steele is a motivational speaker, author, entrepreneur, and the 2018 Democrat nominee for the 36th congressional district in Texas. The Houston Chronicle endorsed her. She has a verified account on Twitter. She is not a fringe figure.

She recently tweeted:

Ms. Steele locked her Twitter account after she was criticized. She deleted the original tweet because, she claimed, “ignorance and hate do not recognize irony.”

Joanna Schroeder is a widely published author who postd a lengthy Twitter thread advising mothers to “stalk our sons’ social media” to prevent them from being drawn into the Alt Right. She told mothers to watch liberal comedians with their sons and explain the importance of challenging power structures and “punching up.” She accurately noted that “journos [are] doing the real work on the subject.” (Comedian Sam Hyde, who was accused of being “Alt Right,” lost his television show after a hostile news article.)

Upworthy posted the entire thread and called it a must read.

Professor Nelson Flores at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, who researches “race, language & bilingual education,” tweeted:

At least Professor Flores has a more honest view about the Founders’ racial convictions than many “conservatives.”

An article at Tzedek called “White Women Doing White Supremacy in Nonprofit Culture” sparked the hashtag #CharitySoWhite. Whites who work at charities devoted to helping non-whites are still guilty of structural racism.

Film maker Michael Moore tweeted:

Someone should show Mr. Moore The Color of Crime and the statistics that show blacks commit most mass shootings.

Practically every tweet from failed congressional candidate Saira Rao is a classic but this month’s highlight:

Ana Navarro-Cárdenas, a Hispanic nationalist and alleged “Republican,” complained last year that it was “dehumanizing” when President Donald Trump called MS-13 gang members animals. On her verified Twitter account, she recently said of Stephen Miller:

Frederick Joseph raised nearly a million dollars to send children to see the film Black Panther. On his verified account, he said:

Elie Mystal, who recently called on progressives to “destroy” Donald Trump supporters, praised the New York Times’ 1619 project:

Comedian Dewayne Perkins said on his verified Twitter account:

Verified Twitter user Michael Schur, “Ken Tremendous,” is the creator of the television show “Parks and Recreation.” His view:

Jamil Smith of Rolling Stone said Ken Cuccinelli had gone “full white nationalist” by trying to prevent immigrants from collecting welfare.

Twitter user “Propane Jane” got thousands of likes with her tweet:

Finally, there is “Icanteven” @coastalelite22, wondering whether her white children have a “genetic defect.”

As one wag put it, “white people love to feel good about themselves by feeling bad about being white.”
