During an interview with Fox News host Jesse Waters, California GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, who is taking on California Governor Gavin Newsom in the recall election, spoke out about the hate crime he was a victim of that got completely ignored by the media.
Earlier in the week, a savage radical liberal attacked Elder by throwing an egg at him. The woman was also wearing a gorilla mask, a clear racial message.
“Well, she might be one of the 20,000 people that were released early from our prisons, felons, many of whom were violent offenders under this governor,” Elder said during the interview, adding, “If I were a Democrat, obviously, this would be called systemic racism; they’d call it a hate crime.”
Watters replied, “So you see the white lady in the gorilla mask, throwing eggs. What exactly happened there, Larry?”
“Well, she might be one of the 20,000 people that were released early from our prisons, felons, many of whom were violent offenders under this governor; I don’t know,” Elder said. “We have too-soft-on-crimes DAs; I consider this to be one of the many intersections in California, intersections between lawlessness and homelessness. I was at a homeless encampment in Venice and a lot of people are angry; homeowners are angry; families are angry children have to go past these people to and from school, and the homeless population is endangered and it’s also a health hazard. Nothing’s being done about it; that’s one of the many failures of this governor.”
“So it was a very angry, ugly scene; if I were a Democrat, obviously, this would be called systemic racism; they’d call it a hate crime,” he asserted. “I don’t like to play that game. I do know this: There was a big article about me, a negative in The New York Times; it never mentioned once that I’m black; never mentioned that I would be the first black governor of California. I’ve never made a big deal out of that; I don’t want people to vote for or against me because I’m black, but on the very same page of The New York Times was an article about the ‘first female governor of New York,’ even though she didn’t get elected; she was basically appointed because the other governor resigned. So they cared about the first when it was a female Democrat but couldn’t give a rip about the first when it was a black Republican.”
“How does that make you feel?” Watters said after pointing out how Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Vice President Kamala Harris completely ignored the attack.
“Crickets. Crickets,” Elder said. “And when Gavin Newsom’s children were criticized because Gavin Newsom mandated that you wear masks outdoors, and his kids were in summer camp not wearing face masks, we put out a statement saying leave Gavin Newsom’s children out of this. But the governor has not put out a statement about this woman, apparently, a white woman wearing a gorilla mask threw an egg at me.”
“I don’t expect that, because look, all of these people have come in; Joe Biden has made a statement; Bernie Sanders has made a statement; Barack Obama’s cut a commercial, and nobody uttered the following words, Jesse: Gavin Newsom’s done a good job for the people of California. You won’t hear that because he hasn’t. Not on crime, not on homelessness, not on the decline in the quality of public education.”
