Right here’s the tweet.
I dare you to attempt to sit nonetheless listening to that beat.
Responses to the advert included feedback particularly aimed toward Noonan.
“Has anybody carried out a wellness examine on Peggy Noonan?”
“Adore it I see @Peggynoonannyc has gone silent—possibly the sight of various individuals joyously voting nonetheless pisses her off””@Peggynoonannyc You wrote a hateful column stuffed with misogyny & racism a couple of girl you could possibly by no means hope 2 perceive.@KamalaHarris is sensible, sort, considerate & joyous within the face of individuals such as you. She’s certified to be PRESIDENT in the future. #SheDances #BlackJoy”
I threw in my two cents, as did Black Kos Editor Chitown Kev.
The fallout from Noonan’s pontificatin’ rolled in instantly after it was revealed final week.
WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart weighed in Thursday.
Upon listening to what Noonan stated about Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, a buddy texted me, saying of Noonan, “She slipped the surly bonds of human decency.” Noonan’s offense was a column complaining about Harris not appearing in a way the conservative columnist deemed acceptable. “She’s dancing with drum traces and starting rallies with ‘Wassup, Florida!’ She’s throwing her head again and laughing a loud snort, particularly when no person stated something humorous,” opined Noonan. “She’s the youthful candidate going for the youthful vote, and he or she’s going for a Completely satisfied Warrior vibe, however she’s coming throughout as insubstantial, frivolous. When she began to bounce within the rain onstage, in Jacksonville, Fla., to Mary J. Blige’s ‘Work That,’ it was embarrassing.”
No, what’s embarrassing is a veteran political columnist who turns right into a dance critic by ignoring what Harris truly stated on the stump. And so what if she danced? As for Harris’s laughter, pity Noonan didn’t trouble to zero in on what was stated that led Harris to snort within the first place. Typically fun is nervous power. Typically it’s in response to an asinine query. Typically it’s the response to an inane assertion too ridiculous to be taken severely.
Harris should be a vexing conundrum for Noonan. After spending generations on the heart of America’s political and cultural life, White People like Noonan can’t appear to cope with somebody like Harris, who’s an avatar of the rising majority-minority America extra resolutely getting into the highlight and into management.
The drum traces that Noonan disparaged are nothing new for Harris, who graduated from HBCU Howard College—clearly part of marketing campaign territory.
Should you haven’t voted but, dance your method right down to the polls, all to the sound of pleasure.
