JUST WHEN YOU think America can’t get any crazier, this comes along.
A major online knitting society known as Ravelry — get it? — has banned Trump supporters because, as everyone knows, they are “white supremacists,” which will come as a surprise to Candace Owens, Ben Carson, Azealia Banks, the incredibly hot Stacy Dash, Dennis Rodman, Omarosa, Herschel Walker, Diamond & Silk and scads of others.
The list is lengthy, proving that not all black voters are nincompoops. Sadly, however, too many are. But the list is shrinking. See #WalkAway on YouTube.
Ravelry ironically claims it banned Trump fans to promote “inclusion,” proving that Ravelry members can knit, but they cannot think in a straight line.
This move touches me personally because my daughter is a rabid knitter and so is my child bride. A couple of years ago, I saw my daughter wearing one of those “pink pussy hats” online. Dear God, where did I go wrong? My child bride wears no hats of any sort.
While my wife does not actively promote the Trump presidency, she does appreciate what he’s doing and how he does it. She “gets it.” Thank me for that. She has a far better opinion of Trump than she does of Mexico’s president, whom she loathes, an opinion she reached on her own. I had nothing to do with it, though I do agree.
My child bride does not participate on Ravelry, which is a good thing. It would present the nutty knitters with a dilemma. They would have to ban a brown-skinned Mexican mestizo for being a “white supremacist.” How silly would that be?
About as silly as calling Stacy Dash a white supremacist.
