Saira Rao, who ran for Congress in Colorado’s first district last year, blames white people for her loss. She also says that she hates white people, and she can’t stand the sight of the American flag. My suggestion is that she move to Iran, where she would never have to deal with either. I will personally donate 100 bucks to her GoFundMe campaign to finance her leaving this country if she promises never to return. Rao was defeated in the Democratic primary in District 1 by a mega-landslide. She managed to get just 31% of the vote in a 2-way race. Maybe she should not have made her hatred for white people and America as her platform?
A former Democratic congressional candidate attacked white people and the American flag in a series of angry tweets Sunday.
Saira Rao, who ran for Congress in Colorado’s first district last year, blamed white people for making her life “miserable,” and said that she can’t stand the sight of the American flag.
The American flag makes me sick.

White people have done everything to make my life miserable. Yet I’m supposed to not hate white people?

Rao was supported by far-left political action committee (PAC) Justice Democrats during her campaign last year but was easily defeated in the Democratic primary by long-term incumbent Diana DeGette, a white woman.
After her primary defeat, Rao said that she was ready to “give up” on white people, blaming them for her loss. Before her loss, Rao also wrote an open letter to the Democratic party in the Huffington Post, ripping them for not doing enough to combat racism.
“You’ve taken my love, my money, my tokenism, with nary anything in return,” she said. “You continue to call angry white men who commit mass murder ‘lone wolves.’ But if someone who looks like me screams ‘Allah’ and fires a gun, it’s “terrorism.”
