    Miss Michigan stripped of title for being a Conservative.

    The Miss World America organization is under fire after stripping a President Donald Trump–supporting model of her Miss Michigan title over “racist, Islamophobic, and insensitive” tweets.

    Kathy Zhu, 20, is a University of Michigan student who won the 2019 Michigan World America title on Sunday. However, her reign was cut short after organizers became aware of Zhu’s controversial Twitter account days later.


    ........................


    “Your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content,” DeLaurie wrote. “Therefore, and effective immediately, MWA does not recognize you as a participant of any sort or in any capacity as it relates to any and all events of MWA.”

    Zhu claimed that the decision was made on the basis of her refusal to try on a hijab in 2018 — something that sparked controversy amongst her fellow University of Central Florida students on World Hijab Day on campus — as well as over her tweets about black gun violence.

    So here we have another example of out of control intolerance by liberals who strip Miss Michigan of her title for nothing more than having a different viewpoint than themselves. I can't even fathom what will happen if these people get in power as the thought police will make sure you have no freedom of thought or expression if it doesn't strictly adhere to their worldview.


    And yet these people claim we're fascists? Good grief.

    Got a quote of her Tweets about black gun violence? I couldn't find one in your link.

    Re: Miss Michigan stripped of title for being a Conservative.

    Hmm, so your title says "for being conservative", but the article says "for racist tweets"...

    are you admitting that conservatives are generally racist?

    Do you consider this racist?

    In a text exchange posted online, a beauty pageant organizer also raised concerns with an October 2017 tweet by Zhu, who wrote: “Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

    Zhu told The News she had posted that tweet in response to social media claims that “all cops are bad cops, all cops were killing blacks,” an explanation she was not able to provide pageant organizers.

    “It wasn’t anything about blaming blacks specifically for violence,” said Zhu, who was born in China and raised in Florida. “I mean, every community has problems within it. I just shined light on that particular issue because of a subtweet of someone else.”

    In an email exchange that Zhu published on Twitter, Miss World America state director Laurie DeJack told her that her social media accounts contain “offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content” in violation of pageant rules and conditions.

    Seems kind of central to the story. She says it was because she refused to wear a hijab but the organizers say it was because of "Your social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content,”
    You don't really have a point without quotes from her social media accounts, do you.

    Apparently being conservative means being a racist idiot.

    She asked "Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others." What she other idiot racists don't realize that for every ethnic group they are most likely to be killed by someone in their own ethnic group. So, her little factoid is meaningless since it applies to all ethnic groups. You're most likely to be killed by a friend or family member.

    Since she's a Trump supporter maybe she should follow Trump's advice and go fix the problems in China like her cult leader suggests.

    You're free to join the Klan if you want but don't expect to represent Michigan. I hope she straightens herself out or she'll have a hard time finding a good job.

    By the way, what she said is exactly what you hear Klan members say.
