It looks like Amy Cooper, the white woman in the viral Central Park video, is a liberal. That's important

However, campaign contribution information — with donations to Democrats such as Barack Obama, Pete Buttigieg, and John Kerry — leaked online earlier today appeared to suggest that Amy actually identifies as a liberal. This matters, because in this political era, during this most critical US presidential election, it is necessary that we understand and recognize that white violence transcends party lines and political ideology.
In the video that Christian recorded, Amy can be heard saying, “I’m taking a picture and calling the cops,” as she appears to strangle or roughly handle her dog with the pet’s collar. “I’m going to tell them there’s an African American man threatening my life.”
Amy repeatedly and insistently stresses the term “African American,” giving viewers the impression that his race is significant here, perhaps in terms of how he can expect to be treated by the police. Incidents of police brutality against Black people are not rare, as Amy Cooper must surely be aware of. In fact, just today, news broke that another unidentified Black man has died in Minneapolis, seemingly gasping, “I can’t breathe” as a police officer keeps his knee on the man’s neck.
White violence is not the sole domain of Trump supporters, or open white supremacists. White violence is pervasive, spreading everywhere and tainting everything. And when we overlook liberal white racism, we put ourselves in grave danger, because liberal white people often live closer in proximity to Black folks than their conservative peers. There’s a chance the Amy Cooper we see in that viral video may not be the same Amy Cooper whose details were leaked onto social media — but as a New York City resident, she’s still statistically much likely to be a Democrat than a Republican, and the conversation about white liberal racism is long overdue.

>>Christian Cooper said he then pulled out dog treats. He told CNN he keeps dog treats with him to get dog owners to put their dogs on leashes because, in his experience, dog owners hate when a stranger feeds their dog treats and immediately restrain their dogs afterward.>>>>
No shit? He must feel REALLY strongly about unleashed dogs in the ramble. A bit of the vigilante in Mr. Cooper, perhaps. No?
Brings to mind…..What was the name of the Trayvon Martin shooter? You know…. the “white hispanic”? That guy.

Anyone who supported the campaign of Buttigieg is no liberal. A wealthy, comfortable, status-quo-supporting DEMOCRAT , perhaps, but that’s hardly the same.
If you give a man enough rope, it will be six inches too short. This is not the nature of rope- it is the nature of man.

Why is it ‘important’?
Does everyone currently assume that liberals can’t be racist and this is some big revelation?

doesn’t fit my definition of “liberal”, but since she’s also a Wall Street bankster scum, I’m sure she fits the Turd Way’s definition.

None of the employers is Franklin Templeton, the financial firm that fired Cooper. There’s no reason to believe that any of these donors is the same person who was involved in the Central Park incident despite the reporting by a UK newspaper.

I don’t see why whether the woman is a liberal or not matters. She threatened a black guy with the NYPD, which has been known to be fatal for such people from time to time.

mean that someone is “liberal?”
All three of those politicians are to the right of Eisenhower, and even Nixon.
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

She is a racist, a animal abuser, and a bitch, liberal or not.

Must be a damn liberal. Probably beat his wife with the book.
Gets kind of sickening reading all the liberal bashing on this site. Let’s quit playing into the Republicans hands. They really laugh at us for fighting among ourselves. No liberal would support those politicians, Obama admitted he was a Republican, Buttigieg is to the right of him, and John Kerry… OK he was close to being a liberal 40 years ago but not now. They might “lesser evil” them, but they would not support them.

@asimplegame We aren’t ‘playing into’ any conservative, authoritarian games and that includes the ones the conservative democrats are playing. So what liberals do we bash?

50 years ago kerry was (at least in the public perception) close to being a radical — Vietnam Vets Against the War.
Hard to believe its the same person today.
These days I tend to think he was controlled opposition in the game.
