“Squad” member (maybe these women need ranks) Ayanna Pressley injected a little old-fashioned racism into her remarks at the far-left Netroots Nation in Philadelphia last week, telling a rapt audience:

We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.

Shorter Pressley: We don’t need people who insist on thinking for themselves rather than hewing slavishly to group think. If you’re one of them … er — go back where you came from.

One of those renegades who refuses to contort herself into one of Pressley’s lemmings is author and political commentator Shemeka Michelle, who has a message for Pressley. Watch:
