Stacey Abrams has another distinction to add to her resume — she is among the most preposterous potential vice presidential candidates ever.
Her attempt to leverage a failed Georgia gubernatorial bid into a spot on the Democratic ticket is so brazenly absurd that it’s hard to think of precedents.
But the 46-year-old African American activist isn’t one to be constrained by standard political practice — or reality. She refused to concede her narrow but clear 2018 gubernatorial loss, instead alleging she’d been undone by a massive voter suppression scheme.
A recent 2014 video that surfaced on the internet reveals the plan of Stacey Abrams’ to change the racial demographics of the electorate heading into the 2021 congressional and legislative redistricting efforts based on the 2020 census. The Georgia activist’s anti-white comments, uncovered by researcher Patrick Howley of National File, were captured on video at a 2014 Power PAC + National Conference, titled “Race Will Win the Race: The Progressive Path to Victory.”
Abrams said: “My eye is on 2021. Because when we do re-districting in 2021, if we have not changed the electorate, especially in the South, we will have a majority-minority population that is governed by a minority white conservative coalition. And that’s the most dangerous precedent that we can possibly set for the South in the next 20 years,”
Even after her gubernatorial defeat and her racist past by her own estimation, she’d be an “excellent running mate.” She has no doubt that she’s prepared to be president on Day One and touts her foreign policy credentials of having visited more than a dozen countries.
President Trump has rewritten the rules of political experience, yet it’s still a stretch to imagine someone who has only served in the Georgia legislature — and as a state representative, not even a senator — is ready to become the leader of the free world. Even Pete Buttigieg has more executive experience.
