Failed Candidate Stacey Abrams Defends Using Identity Politics: ‘It’s Exactly How We Won’

Georgia’s Stacey Abrams, who lost her governor’s race but keeps insisting she somehow “won,” is now claiming victory due to identity politics.

Addressing the Center for American Progress’s Ideas Conference, Abrams said, “The notion of identity politics has been peddled for the past 10 years and it’s been used as a dog whistle to say we shouldn’t pay too much attention to the voices coming into progress.”

“I would argue that identity politics is exactly who we are and exactly how we won,” she added.

Remember, this is the same Stacey Abrams who once said it was “disturbing” and “distressing” that candidate Donald Trump might reject the results of the 2016 presidential election if it did not go his way.

It’s funny how when the other party does something, it’s horrendous, but when your own does it, everything is fine.

Despite losing her race by 55,000 votes – not a small number in a state race – Abrams continues to insist she actually won in one form or another.

When a reporter asked in March if she ever planned to concede her election, she said “no,” which Hillary Clinton and the Democrats called a “direct threat to democracy” when speculating that Trump could do the same.

Abrams’ comments remind us that the Democrats are now completely beholden to identity politics, where what you are – your race, gender, religion – becomes more important than who you are. Most Americans are not on board with such a radical view of humanity.

Does Abrams ever stop and think that her party’s embrace of such radicalism is why she lost?

Whether Stacey Abrams runs for office again is anyone’s guess, but no doubt the outcome, we know she will proclaim herself the winner.

Over and over and over again.

  • She and Beto both loser's in their own states have become the poster Dems for all of the loser's. The Dems have to much money invested in them to let them walk without getting some more bang for their buck.

  • Abrams was expecting to lose by 100,000 votes; however, she only lost by 55,000. In Demokratik terminology, that's a win?
    Just the same as school funding: The increase was expected to be 10%; however, the increase was only 5%. That's a cut?
    I need a drink!

  • Lock her and HRC up in a room together and film it. It would be 100 times better than SNL!

  • I think when she was born whoever delivered her must have dropped her on her head multiple times.

  • Here's a question, Why was this looser, I mean that literally, a guest speaker at the Center for American Progress’s Ideas Conference.
    Why would anyone want to listen to a looser, was Harvey Weinstein booked?
    I mean, Bette Midler is a whack job, but at least she has a televised show, and she's very important in her own mind. Or there's Hillary, isn't she doing tours now for the cost of a free lunch? There are so many liberal socialist ready to cough up there opinion, you don't have to scrape the bottom of the liberal trash can for ummm, what's her name again!
