(Tea Party PAC) – So far, the Democrats have done a bang-up job celebrating Black History Month.
The month kicked off with Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s blackface scandals, as black VA Lt. Governor was accused of sexual assault.
Then, actor and activist for the Democrat Party, Jussie Smollett, staged an elaborate hate hoax on himself which spit in the face of both white Trump supporters and the painful history of race-based crimes in our nation.
Now, to finish off Black History month, a white Democrat Delegate for Maryland, Ann Listani (District 34A Harford County) is being slammed for allegedly referring to a neighborhood in Prince George’s County as a “n***** district” during a conversation with another Democrat lawmaker.
According to the Washington Post:
A white lawmaker from Harford County apologized to the leaders of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland for using a racial slur to describe a legislative district in Prince George’s County — but also told her black colleagues that she did not recall saying it, according to two lawmakers who attended the meeting.
Caucus members confronted Del. Mary Ann Lisanti (D) on Monday night over allegations that she told a white colleague, during an after-hours gathering at an Annapolis cigar bar, that when he campaigned in Prince George’s on behalf of a candidate last fall he was door-knocking in a “n—– district.”
Questioned by The Washington Post earlier this month about her alleged use of the racial slur, Lisanti said: “I don’t recall that. . . . I don’t recall much of that evening.”
When asked whether she has ever used the slur, she said: “I’m sure I have. . . . I’m sure everyone has used it. I’ve used the f-word. I used the Lord’s name in vain.”
Delegate Jay Walker, a black representative of the 26th District, which is near the community that Lisanti slandered, told the Post that he heard Lisanti use the slur but choose to address it in private.
“I was leaning on my time in football,” said Walker, a former professional quarterback. “It was something I had to handle inside the locker room, and I handled it appropriately. I made my disappointment known. When she apologized, I told her how disappointed I was.”
On Tuesday, the Democrat House Speaker Michael Busch (District 30A Anne Arundel County)_ announced he would be stripping Lisant of her leadership posts on committees and sending her to sensitivity training, according to the Baltimore Sun:
Lawmakers and civil rights leaders on Tuesday condemned Harford County Del. Mary Ann Lisanti’s use of a racial slur during an after-hours gathering at an Annapolis bar — and House Speaker Michael Busch stripped her of two leadership assignments.
Lisanti, a Democrat in her second term from Havre de Grace, apologized Tuesday morning to the House Democratic Caucus for using the slur and released a statement asking for forgiveness.
“I deeply apologize to the citizens of my district, people of Maryland, all of my colleagues in the Maryland General Assembly and everyone reading this for my word choice several weeks ago,” Lisanti said. “I am sickened that a word that is not in my vocabulary came out of my mouth. It does not represent my belief system, my life’s work or what is in my heart.”
…Busch stripped Lisanti of her posts as chairwoman of a House subcommittee on unemployment insurance and as House chairwoman of a joint committee on unemployment insurance.
…Busch said Lisanti agreed to undergo “sensitivity training.”
“I hope that through the sensitivity training that Delegate Lisanti has agreed to and the help of her colleagues, she will develop a greater understanding of the impact that she has had on her fellow legislators and the entire House of Delegates,” Busch said. “Like anyone who has made a mistake, she has the opportunity for redemption — but it is her responsibility to do so and earn back the trust of her colleagues.”
The Sun also reported that a letter written by Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland to Speaker Busch had called on him to punish Lisanti in this manner.
