We all know that J.K. Rowling is a bit of an odd bird. But she has really flown over the cuckoo’s nest this time.
While it is a pretty impressive story for her to have pulled herself up by her bootstraps as a poor, single mom to a multi-millionaire, she has some far-out stories. And for those who believe her? Well that is masterful wizardry on her part.
What’s the latest on just kidding? Excuse me, J.K.?
According to the Washington Times:
J.K. Rowling, the author of the “Harry Potter” series that was made into several movies, weighed in on the Alabama Senate election to say Roy Moore, who spoke of how God was in control during his explanation to supporters about his refusal to concede, was indeed correct — that God was definitely in control.
It was her next statement that was the eyebrow raiser.
Rowling, in a tweet, added, as Breitbart noted: “What [Moore] didn’t realise was, She’s black.”
God is a black woman?
This is Rowling’s full tweet, which linked to a CNN Twitter post of Moore’s speech on why he wasn’t conceding: “Narrator’s voice: Roy was right. God was in control. What he didn’t realise was, She’s black.”
Rowling’s reference was no doubt likely to the fact that blacks voted for Democrat Doug Jones with a 96 percent voice — and of that, 98 percent were black women.
This isn’t the first time J.K. has dipped her toe in liberal waters. Tweeting to the left.
Take, for example, when she called out an individual she unfollowed:
Harry Potter series creator J.K. Rowling has been known to drag a high-profile figure or two on Twitter, from Donald Trump to Piers Morgan. But in a new thread of tweets, Rowling decided to tackle a much larger issue instead of just a single person: Misogyny.
On Friday, Rowling took to Twitter to discuss how she unfollowed an unidentified man, whom she once found smart and funny, because he decided to call U.K. prime minister Theresa May a “whore,” an observation that began a 14-tweet thread on the subject of sexism. “If you can’t disagree with a woman without reaching for all those filthy old insults, screw you and your politics,” she started.
But while her message applies to everyone, Rowling singled out men who consider themselves progressives. “I’m sick of ‘liberal’ men whose mask slips every time a woman displeases them, who reach immediately for crude and humiliating words associated with femaleness, act like old-school misogynists and then preen themselves as though they’ve been brave,” she wrote. “When you do this, Mr Liberal Cool Guy, you ally yourself, wittingly or not, with the men who send women violent pornographic images and rape threats, who try by every means possible to intimidate women out of politics and public spaces, both real and digital.”
So, she calls out conservative men and liberal men. Men who date teenagers and men who pretend to be progressive.
At least, when she goes on her rants and raves, she treats everyone equally.
Well, except black women. She elevates them to God-like status.
