Kim Klacik is Who We Thought She Was
Klacik's racist Twitter tirade shows what she's really all about
Two-time failed Congressional Candidate Kimberly Klacik went on a racist rant on Twitter on Saturday night, targeting those of Chinese ancestry.
Somehow, this is supposed to tie it all together
This didn’t stop Congressman-elect Burgess Owens from throwing his full support behind Klacik, who says that she’s going to lose another run for Congress in 2022.
Klacik’s racist rant, however, is problematic.
“Mitch McConnell’s wife” is U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao. She was not born in the People’s Republic of China. She was born in Taiwan. She emigrated to the U.S. with her family 60 years ago. She has served in multiple Republican administrations, twice as a Cabinet Secretary.
“Mark Zuckerburg’s wife” is Dr. Priscilla Chan. She was born in Braintree, Massachusetts. Her parents fled Vietnam in a boat toward the end of the Vietnam War.
To follow Klacik’s stream of thought here, I guess she is implying that Mark Zuckerburg, Mitch McConnell, and Eric Swalwell are engaged in a conspiracy to spread COVID? I guess? I mean, the entire thought stream is so racist and idiotic that it’s hard to actually follow.
There are only two explanations for this Tweetstorm.
The first reason was that maybe a little the tweets were enhanced…..
The most likely reason, however, is the fact that Kim Klacik is a politician who does not engage in critical thought and is instead just somebody who uses outrage to trigger her supporters into becoming ever more loyal to her and to donate even more money to her.
This is her business model.
At the end of the day, Kim Klacik is who we thought she was; somebody who ran for Congress to become famous, not get elected.
Klacik, at least for Maryland politicians, is why we need to stop making stupid people politically famous. Klacik, as I have said repeatedly, does not care about you, does not care about Baltimore, does not care about the Maryland Republican Party. She cares only about fame, about money, and about power.
After all, as Kim Klacik herself once said without a hint of irony:
And it seems like that more than anybody else, she would know national attention’s addictive properties.
