(ConservativeInsider.org) – Leading up to this year’s election day, Democrat “Squad” members were throwing their support behind a myriad of progressive left-leaning candidates who come from diverse racial backgrounds. However, once November 2 came and went, the top “Squad” members went eerily silent after GOP victories swept some of the elections.
On Tuesday, November 2, Winsome Sears won her Virginia race to become the state’s lieutenant governor. After Sears immigrated from Jamaica in her youth, she joined the Marine Corps and even served in the Virginia House of Delegates in the early 2000s. During her victory speech, the future lieutenant governor highlighted how she’s truly living “the American dream.”
However, liberal Representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) failed to celebrate her victory, despite Sears being the Virginia government’s highest-ranking black woman in history.
Understandably, Sears did not let that affect her excitement and shared her appreciation for her supporters on Twitter:
THANK YOU, VIRGINIA! 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/BntaS0hpI7

The “Squad’s” lack of support or acknowledgment of Sears’ victory shows that their support for black Americans and women only goes so far as their own party. If they truly wanted to celebrate the accomplishments of these minorities, they would join Sears in her victory lap in Virginia.
