8. Great article - and talk about pwning.

Is is just a coincidence that gubernatorial candidate Stacey Evans, Greg Bluestein and Zaid Jilani all overlapped at different times at the University of Georgia? Or that Zaid Jilani worked at the same college paper Bluestein did? Or that Zaid and Fang both interned at ThinkProgress at the same time?

Is it a coincidence that in the same week that my column ran, Fang sent the FOIA request, followed by Bluestein writing a hit piece and Jilani tweeting that I was a liar? Are they just a bunch of frustrated Bernie Bro friends working as attack dogs for Stacey Evans under the guise of being journalists?

But, wait, there’s more! Does the fact that Bluestein suggested that Marcus Ferrell, former Abrams campaign staffer (and former head of black outreach for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign), was up to something after appearing on a Kremlin-backed news station discredit his journalism?

Does the fact that Zaid Jilani left his job at ThinkProgress (an arm of the Center for American Progress) after a series of disputed anti-Semitic tweets, and believes that “identity politics” fuel the right wing, make him less legitimate?

9. Boom.

The main idea of the piece was that in this post-Sanders-vs.-Clinton world, black Democrats like Stacey Abrams often face two parties: Republicans and white Democrats (like Abrams’ opponent Stacey Evans) so obsessed with “working-class voters” (i.e., Donald Trump supporters) that they marginalize or even attack rising black Democratic stars. The Nation ran a piece, “The Obsession With White Voters Could Cost Democrats the Virginia Governor’s Race,” which tapped into similar themes this week.

This is a conversation that many nonblack liberals want to stifle at all costs. Consequently, a boy band of reporters and wannabe political commentators—Greg Bluestein at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Zaid Jilani and Lee Fang at The Intercept—felt that it was their dirtbag-left duty to shut me up.
