Everything you need to know about Laphonza Butler, Dianne Feinstein's DEI replacement

Laphonza Butler is almost perfect on paper.

She’s a black, radical, pro-abortion activist who happens to be a lesbian, and she’s California Governor Gavin Newsom’s choice to replace the late Dianne Feinstein in the Senate.

Butler also runs EMILYs List, a pro-abortion advocacy group that claims to have elected a decent number of women to push forward the abortion agenda.

However, while she checks nearly every box the progressives fawn over, there is one issue: she does not live in California. Butler’s 2022 voter registration is in Maryland, and so is her home address.

Despite her address, Newsom had apparently already pledged to replace Feinstein with a black woman, so Butler seems to fit the only criterium that matters.

“When was the first time that a politician overtly said in advance they will only consider a black woman for a role?” Stu Burguiere asks, which he and Glenn Beck shortly determine has only been a recent phenomenon.

“Joe Biden came out and did it, like, 57 times. He’s like, ‘I got an Asian for this role. I want a guy who’s actually saying he’s a girl for this role. I want a black woman for this role. I want three lesbians over there, nine gay dudes over there,’” Stu says, half-joking.

“I thought we all came to the conclusion [that] picking people by skin color was a really bad idea,” he adds.

Glenn notes that if these white male leaders truly believe in what they advocate for, they should be stepping down and letting people chosen by skin color run the country.

“Joe, if you believe this, why don’t you retire right now and let Kamala Harris be our first black female president?” he asks.
