(Ben Sellers, Headline USA) A shocking video shared by North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson showed hundreds of virtue-signaling Maryland liberals cultishly pledging their allegiance to blacks with their hands raised in the air.
In the video, the sea of masked (outdoor), mainly white attendees intones a chant at what appears to be the grounds of a library in Bethesda, Md., an exurb of Washington, D.C. in the hyper-woke Montgomery County.
“I will love my black neighbors the same as my white ones,” they drone, while holding up their hands in a gesture of defeat and supplication.
During a recent rally with former President Donald Trump, a similar gesture—resembling the “prayer hands” seen in church—was denounced as a Nazi salute by members of the leftist press, perhaps offering a window into their own TDS-afflicted hive mindset and intentions.
According to Robinson’s office, the video was taken in the summer of 2020. In the months following George Floyd’s death that May, blue “sanctuary cities” like Bethesda routinely put on parades and displays of this kind, including a “Justice Can’t Wait Vigil,” as a sort of complement to the violent race riots that were taking place concurrently.
“If it wasn’t already obvious, we are in a massive battle,” remarked Robinson in an email to donors.
“The left demands that everyone must virtue signal and do ridiculous things to prove that you are a good person, otherwise you are an enemy and they will ‘cancel’ you,” he continued. “They’ve tried to cancel me. It hasn’t worked, it won’t work.”
The video was part of a fundraising campaign for Robinson, who has not yet confirmed his plan to run for governor in 2024 but has dropped strong hints—including at a recent Trump rally for Senate candidate Ted Budd in Wilmington, N.C.
Robinson, who is black and is a rising star in the GOP, has been one among a growing legion of conservative African–Americans to speak their truth to power in opposition of the leftist dogma. Many of them, like Robinson, draw values instead from their Christian faith and upbringing.
Among the high-profile blacks to have been red-pilled during the Trump presidency is Ye (formerly Kanye West), the wealthiest black person in American history with an estimated $6 billion fortune from his performing career and other business ventures in the fashion and entertainment industries.
In a recent interview on Fox News’s Unfiltered with Dan Bongino, Robinson signaled his belief that the upcoming midterm election could be a turning point in undoing black voters’ decades-long devotion to the Democratic Party, which has long taken them for granted.
“I think that folks are waking up all over this country, and that includes black people in this country,” Robinson said.
“Black people are starting to take a look around in many of their communities and wonder why, for the last 50 years, things have been the same—why they’re seeing the same old things over and over again and hearing the same things over and over again with no positive results,” he continued. “…They’re seeing that the answer lies on the other side of the aisle.”
