RALEIGH – It’s not exactly idiocy; maybe more appropriately deemed lunacy. It’s the Left’s enthusiastic deep dive into labeling absolutely everything as racist. If we thought the blame racism trend was pervasive before, it’s gone into warp drive in 2020. For today’s example of lunacy, we have North Carolina’s Democratic candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture Jenna Wadsworth.
Ms. Wadsworth wants everyone out there that thinks EVERYTHING is racist, EVEN the novel coronavirus, that they’re not alone.

And it may please (or unsettle) you to know that Ms. Wadsworth is a leader in terms of spreading her wokeness. Actually, she co-founded an incubator for young woke up-and-comers. In her interview in the INDY Week, a very long piece, she boasts about all the young leaders her woke foundation has helped elevate.
“[…] I am the Co-Founder and former Co-Director of a progressive training ground for young leaders called New Leaders Council-North Carolina (NLC-NC). Our organization has trained many of the young leaders throughout the state that are developing or enacting progressive policies that raise up whole communities. Rep. Chaz Beasley, Hillsborough Councilman Matt Hughes, Durham County Commission candidate Nida Allam, Holly Springs Councilman Aaron Wolff, Fmr. Raleigh Mayoral Candidate Zainab Baloch, NC House Candidate Antoine Marshall, Fmr. NC House Candidate Da’Quan Love, Fmr. NC Senate Candidate Andrew Barnhill, Chief Justice Cheri Beasley’s Chief of Staff and General Counsel Anna Stearns, NC House Candidate Ricky Hurtado, Councilman Jonathan Melton’s campaign manager Virginia Reed, NC House Candidate Terry Brown, Fmr. Greensboro City Council candidate David Wils, Rep. Allison Dahle’s Legislative Assistant Anne Evangelista, NC Supreme Court law clerk Wes Tripp, 2020 Presidential Leadership Scholar Michael Cooper, and so many other amazing human beings have gone through this NLC-NC fellowship program. […]”
Far from blathering lunatics in the street, Wadsworth has worked to help ensure the looney line of thought is represented across our government. It would make Khrushchev proud.
And Wadsworth is enjoying broad support among Democrats because she is so focused on the biggest issued facing farmers and agriculture in North Carolina, like social justice and equity:
“[…] Furthermore, I’ve been endorsed by both the Durham People’s Alliance and the Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People, because both organizations recognize my commitment to social justice and equity—especially in the fight against the climate crisis—and feel that I am the best candidate to ensure a future we can all be proud of. […]”
And there’s much more where that came from in this INDY Week interview, and on her Twitter thread. Wadsworth is obviously an accomplished, energetic, young leader that is intent upon leaving her mark on the world; but that’s exactly what we should be worried about when that mark is defined by a morally bankrupt wokeness.
