Conservative Larry Elder posted a meme Tuesday to his verified Instagram account highlighting left-wing media figures and politicos who push racial politics and are romantically partnered with white people.

“Why are they all married to whites if white’s [sic] are systemically racist?” the meme reads. Elder added the hashtag, “#WeveGotACountryToSave.”

The meme includes a photo of radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her boyfriend Riley Roberts, who is white. It also includes married and engaged couples, like CNN host Don Lemon and his fiancé Tim Malone, who is white, and Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and her wife Amy Eshleman, who is also white. Vice President Kamala Harris and her white husband Douglas Emhoff and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and her white husband Tim Mynett are pictured in the meme, too.

All of the politicians and media figures featured in the meme have pushed racial politics and so-called systemic racism in America. Lemon, for example, has suggested that Americans do not believe black people as “fully human.”

“We’re living in two different realities as black and white people,” Lemon told The Washington Post this summer.

“It was a wake-up call to white people who thought we were living in a nonracist world,” Lemon said of Trump’s election win in 2016. “We’re living in two different realities as black and white people. We knew, as black people, what was lurking beneath the surface. I still believe that he was the necessary wake-up for America to realize just how racist it is.”

Lemon added that it’s his calling to “guide white people through racism.”

Harris turned heads when she visited Jacob Blake in the hospital and apparently told him she was “proud of him,” according to Blake’s lawyer, and emphasized the need for “implicit bias” training of police officers. An armed Blake, who is black, was shot by officers after his girlfriend called the police for help. Harris has also supported violent rioting by the Black Lives Matter movement and stressed that America has a history of racism that still prevails today.

Omar has frequently talked about “structural racism” and “systemic oppression” against minorities in America. 

AOC has routinely complained about “white supremacy” and “systemic racism” in our nation and bizarrely tied “racial injustice” to climate change.

Lightfoot this summer declared “racism” a public health crisis in Chicago.

Elder, who is black, has refuted the claims that there is systemic racism in America, particularly when it comes to policing, as he wrote in April 2021, ripping former President Barack Obama:

Obama knows the statistics and studies. He knows there is no evidence of anti-Black ‘systemic racism’ on the part of the police. But the political Obama knows that Black anger and resentment translate into Black votes. How many routine police encounters with Blacks escalate into something far more serious because young Blacks believe the “systemic racism” lie pushed by Black Lives Matter and their sympathizers?

Polls rate Obama as one of the most admired people in America, particularly among Black Americans. Out of office, he maintains respect, power, stature and influence. As president, he could have saved lives by putting truth over politics. He chose not to. As a former president, he still can.

Mr. Obama, tell the truth. Save lives. It’s not too late.
