The making of a new political star.
We came across a very disturbing tale on ‘Daily Beast’ this morning about rising political star – Audra Shay, who is likely (we hope not) to be voted in as the new head of the Young Republican contingency. Equipped with many references to comments on her Facebook account (which since then have been scraped clean- naturally) the article exposes Audra for her very narrow and inflammatory sensibilities.
In one account, Audra lambastes “Obama Bin Lauden [sic] as the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals,”
This of course preempts consideration- how is it that a bright group of individuals- the ‘Young Republican Party,’ be considering to vote for such a nihilistic individual?
Is there something we don’t know about Audra that makes her loveable and sweet after all, or are there just a lot of people in society who despite themselves share Audra’s point of view.
In fairness we think it’s fine to think and feel whatever you want, but we do wonder if people like Audra ever got any real power how her way of thinking could perversely affect the conduct of current social dialectics.
In any event, if you come across Audra on facebook, don’t be afraid to facebook friend her unless of course you’re the type of person that we ‘all’ know are ‘spooky.’
Fun and counter progressive people you should check out on Facebook now.
