Stabbing Identity Politics to Death: An Honest Way of Reaching out to Women and Minorities in the Trump Era.
The paragraph title is the subject of the talk that columnist and author Ying Ma will deliver to the Fairfax County Republican Committee meeting scheduled for 7:30 – 8:45 PM on Tuesday, December 11, at Luther Jackson Middle School Auditorium, 3020 Gallows Road, Falls Church, VA 22042.
(See the map at the end of the article for where to park and enter the school.)
Ms. Ma is one of the Democrats’ worst nightmares. As “a woman, a racial minority, and an immigrant” from a working class family who has earned exceptional educational degrees and professional acclaim, she disdains political correctness, opposes illegal entry to our country, champions individual liberty and the rule of law, and rejects identity politics.
Moreover, she has unabashedly supported President Donald Trump in his unswerving commitment to make America great again. She even goes so far as to call herself “a deplorable.”
The Democrats don’t like Ms. Ma because she threatens their distorted and Constitutionally ungrounded vision of classifying Americans into groups based on superficial criteria, pitting these groups against each other, and then advancing government solutions as the way to resolve the sense of victimhood and divisiveness that such identity politics breeds.
Ms. Ma is on to the Democrats’ game and unflinchingly exposes their shallow and cynical methods.
Come to the FCRC meeting and hear Ms. Ma explain how Republicans can reach women and minorities in the Trump era. Her assessments and guidance will surely help guide our support of Republicans seeking to win county and state representative elections this year.
Don’t miss this holiday treat. And bring a Republican friend or neighbor who might be willing to help our cause.
