HuffPo contributor publicly states she’s ‘confused’ by ‘affluent black man’ with Tea Party sticker–BAD idea

Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to Huffington Post, bit off more than she could chew when she took to social media to express confusion over why an affluent black man driving a BMW would support the NRA and the Tea Party principle, “Don’t Tread on Me.”

Johnson, the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, would delete the tweet, but it stated:

“Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don’t tread on me.’ This left me very confused.”

Johnson was hit with claims of racism for remarking on a black man driving a BMW, as if this was a striking accomplishment, and for dictating who black Americans are supposed to support.

Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, a black man, borrowed a tactic from the left in offering a classic response: “What, you thought he stole it? RACIST!”

Resorting to a staple on the left, Johnson responded to social media users by saying the tea party movement only helped “white, rich men,” and likening the GOP to white supremacy. She even tried to drag President Donald Trump into the mix, suggesting that he was complimentary of white supremacists.

With her Twitter feed lighting up, she explained why she deleted the original tweet:

In the end, the “confused” feminist should have just stopped digging, because the hole she created for herself with her intolerant liberal mind-think only got deeper.

Not that others didn’t try to help Johnson broaden her horizon, as seen with Colin Noir, an unapologetic black gun rights advocate, NRA member and host of the NRA web series NOIR.

“I drive a BMW, so let’s wonder together about why I think and vote the way I do. Here’s an open invite to come on my show and have that conversation,” he tweeted.

Here’s a sampling of other responses from Twitter:

Perhaps the best response of all came from a social media user who wondered: “What the hell is that guy doing with bumper stickers on a Beemer!?”
