Texas County Elects Black Female Sheriff – And Went For Donald Trump
IT WAS RACISM!
Obviously, the vast rightwing conspiracy colluded with the uneducated, knuckle-dragging Neanderthal racists and sexists to deprive Hillary Clinton of her rightful position as “First Woman President of the United States.”
There could be no other explanation for the Clinton’s defeat, which in the minds and pens of the Washington elite and mainstream media, was unthinkable.
After all, Clinton – a graduate of Yale Law School who has been in the public eye since marrying the young attorney general of Arkansas in 1975, serving as that state’s first lady, First Lady of the United States, U.S. Senator from New York, and Secretary of State – was “the most qualified person in history to run for the presidency” according to President Obama.
How then to explain Zena Stephens?
Jefferson County, Texas is gulf coast and bayou, reliably a Democrat stronghold that has not voted for a Republican in a presidential election since Richard Nixon in 1972.
But Tuesday, the 57 percent white, 34 percent black, 10 percent Hispanic and 3 percent Native Americans voted against stereotype and for the individual candidate.
In addition to the presidential and Congressional choices, Jefferson County was electing a sheriff.
They chose Zena Stephens – a black woman on the ballot with a “D” next to her name.
They also chose Donald Trump – a white man with a “R” next to his.
Racist? Stephens will be only the second black, female county sheriff in the country when she takes office on January 1, 2017.
Erin Landry, 32, a physician from Beaumont who considers herself a Republican, voted for both Stephens and Trump, and says local voters were able to, “pick the best representatives for the job, regardless of which party they represent.”
The irony of Donald Trump, a Republican who was reviled by the left and the media as a “racist” and “sexist,” being the agent of a real post-racial and post-gender America is probably lost on those who continue to weep on campus and riot in the street, but it was not lost on the thousands of communities around the nation who, as Landry said, “picked the best” candidate for the job.
