Peggy Noonan Criticizes Kamala Because Racist!
Peggy Noonan Criticizes Kamala Because Racist!
Peggy Noonan is the grande dame of Republican women pundits. Not only was she a speech writer for President Ronald Reagan, she’s also written bestsellers, including some about Reagan. She now writes for the Wall Street Journal, and is still a largely respected voice in media.
But that was then. Peggy Noonan criticized Kamala Harris, so liberals have now labeled her a racist.
Over the weekend, Noonan wrote a WSJ article in which she deemed Harris to be “unserious.”
“She’s dancing with drum lines and beginning rallies with ‘Wassup, Florida! . . . throwing her head back and laughing a loud laugh, especially when nobody said anything funny. She’s the younger candidate going for the younger vote, and she’s going for a Happy Warrior vibe, but she’s coming across as insubstantial, frivolous. When she started to dance in the rain onstage, in Jacksonville, Fla., to Mary J. Blige’s ‘Work That,’ it was embarrassing.”
Well, yeah, that pretty much describes Harris, the younger counterpart to the befuddled Joe Biden. Harris has a history of playing the cool, hip candidate, like she did in a 2019 interview with “The Breakfast Club.” She told the black interviewers that during college, she toked some weed to her Snoop Dogg and Tupac playlist, even though she graduated years before either came on the scene.
Kamala Harris is a phony — we all know that. So Peggy Noonan called her on it, as she has a right to do as a political pundit. But Noonan is a white woman so how dare she!
Nicolle Wallace of MSNBC, former communications director for George W. Bush, came unglued, claiming that Noonan’s column caused her physical pain!
Oh, the humanity!
She also lectured, instructing white Republican women to shut up about Kamala. You privileged shrews don’t know squat! You’re not down with the struggle!
“When you’re a white woman and you’re a Republican, there’s just certain stuff culturally that you don’t know jack bleep about, and you should keep your mouth shut when other people dance. And what is that line about dancing to a drum beat? This, to me, felt tone-deaf, it felt nasty, it felt personal and it felt bitchy.”
Honey, it ain’t Peggy Noonan who’s bitchy. Look in a mirror.
But Wallace says she still admires Peggy. It breaks her poor little heart that Peggy has sunk so low.
“She’s someone I don’t just admire, I revere her words. Some of the speeches she’s written I have devoted to memory. So to hear her take out her very skilled cudgel and smash it against a woman who has broken the kind of barriers that every one of us have faced — Peggy, too — is searing for me.”
Oh please, cry me a river.
Those sound like racist comments about conservative white women, but those gals are fair game, according to those in the media who are their moral superiors. On the other hand, Wallace says there’s no bigotry among Democrats. In a 2019 panel discussion, she came up with this twaddle:
“This does not have a parallel on the left. It doesn’t. There isn’t. There isn’t a strain of racism on the left.”
I’ll bet your eyeballs rolled so far back into your noggin that you’ve got a massive migraine about now.
But Nicole Wallace wasn’t the only voice to call out Peggy Noonan as a racist. The Twitterverse had their own fits.
This is the joy that so triggered Peggy Noonan that she wrote a column about how Senator Harris comes off as “insubstantial, frivolous.”

Former CNN host Soledad O’Brien also hissed raaaciiist. And, of course, Trump!
“View it through the lens of racism and her comments make sense. Also recall the President has simulated sex at his rallies, mocked journalist, made lots of stuff up… and also danced.”
And it gets worse, friends! Peggy Noonan admires Rush Limbaugh! Doesn’t get much worse than that.
Oh right, kinda racist ole lady Peggy Noonan admired Rush Limbaugh. pic.twitter.com/moDWFL6XS9

So let me get this straight: Kamala Harris is running for the second highest seat in the nation. Considering how doddering Joe Biden looks these days, should Biden win the election (please, God, no), she could become Numero Uno. Still, Peggy Noonan has no right to criticize how Harris presents herself in public, because that’s racist.
Yet people like Wallace, et.al., are the same ones to tell us how Biden and Harris will help to “bring the nation together.”
Just as long as you white people sit down, shut up, and keep your opinions to yourselves, of course.
