A New York woman who refused to wear a mask at Essex Market because she has a medical problem and then casually called a Black worker a “bitch-ass” N-word — which she said in front of what appear to be her own biracial children — is apparently a prolific anti-masker, anti-vaxxer and conspiracy theorist with a history of public expressions of her kooky beliefs.
Her name is *Stephanie Denaro* and she’s a trump supporter. You can locate her on IG, under the same name. pic.twitter.com/ffVNoKCnch— J- 🌎✨ (@MajorFactor2) March 24, 2021
You will be shocked when I tell you she is also a Trump supporter. (You may be genuinely shocked that she was formerly a Bernie Sanders supporter — I thought Obama/Trump voters were bizarre, so I will also never get over the small but noteworthy Sanders/Trump crossovers. I do not understand the commonality.)
She is at 4:39 here:
She has also taunted people disgusted by her behavior by asserting that she is, in fact, Black herself, and therefore gets to use the N-word. Alternatively, she's stated she can't be racist if she has biracial kids:
I realize people think writing about this behavior elevates it, but I believe ignoring it is why it has flowered anew in recent years.

I spent last night trying to assuage the fears of friends (who should know better) once it was perfectly clear that Warnock and Ossoff would win. Smart Dems, they kept clinging to defeatism, largely because they were watching CNN.
Turn off CNN.
Today, Rev. Raphael Warnock has clearly won his election against former Sen. Kelly Loeffler in Georgia — the race has been called by the AP and every other major outlet.
I've seen enough. Raphael Warnock (D) defeats Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) in GA's special Senate runoff. #GASEN— Dave Wasserman (@Redistrict) January 6, 2021
Also, it is clear Jon Ossoff has also bested longtime former Sen. David Perdue in the Peach State; that election has not been officially called by the AP, but has been called by many numbers crunchers, as Ossoff is ahead by well over 10,000 votes. With only blue areas outstanding, there is no conceivable path for Perdue to prevail.

Democrats win control of the Senate.
This historic win means Democrats control the White House and both the House of Representatives and the Senate. It means Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has been demoted, and also means that President-elect Biden can look forward to actually having his Cabinet voted on and approved. Biden should also have a far easier time with any Supreme Court picks. Above all, with the Senate narrowly on his side (and a lot rides on conserva-Dems like Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, a kingmaker going forward), Biden will be able to get his agenda going.
Now, Democrats have to lead. We've got less than two years to remind Americans why the country is in better hands with Democrats.
And lest we forget that this is due in large part to the tireless organizing of Stacey Abrams, as some have:
... recall that in November, several other states couldn't be bothered to fire their reprehensible Republican sitting senators (including blue MAINE!), and yet barely blue Georgia fired the richest member in ALL of Congress and a good ol' boy with a marquee surname. It helps when Trump's name is not on the ballot, but much of the rest should be chalked up to Abrams doing the work.
