Republican presidential primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has dutifully gotten under the skin of leftist radicals. As an American of Indian descent, he refuses to march to the beat of the victimhood drum and trumpet racial ideology.
That led to Democrats and their media allies pulling out the one card they consistently play. Ramaswamy must be a White supremacist.
This came from none other than Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), who is quickly making a name for himself as one of his party’s preeminent race hustlers. He accused the candidate of “fitting it nicely into the pocket of the White supremacist that you are.”

Bowman spouted hatred against Ramaswamy apparently over remarks made about another Democrat.
His unhinged rant included warning the entrepreneur to “keep Black women’s name out of your mouth, first of all. That’s number one. Number two, keep black people’s name[s] out of your mouth.”
Hardly becoming of a member of Congress, but that’s the state of the modern Democratic Party.
The person Ramaswamy apparently offended — besides Bowman of course — was “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). Addressing CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, the businessman referenced a 2019 remark reportedly made by the congresswoman.
She allegedly said, “we don’t need any more Brown faces that don’t want to be a Brown voice.” Ramaswamy declared that there is a “new Neo-racism on the left” and likened her remark to statements of “wizards of the grand KKK.”
For this he is labeled a White supremacist.
Ramaswamy added that remarks like hers are in the same spirit as looking at a person and believing you know their character by the color of their skin. A famous civil rights leader once made a similar statement in the 1960s. At a speech in Washington.
The Republican’s comments came after being asked on CNN about being a person of color dealing with racism in the U.S.
Pressley’s team attempted to make political hay out of Ramaswamy’s Sunday comments as part of a fundraising effort. First they amazingly claimed to normally avoid “bad-faith attacks” but would make an exception since “a line was crossed.”
Politico reported the Democrat’s organization asserted his remarks were due to her fighting “racial injustice.”
