A social justice activist, who has a reputation for flaming-hot takes on Twitter, made a stunning proclamation on her now-locked Twitter account suggesting that “private messages of support is another form of white supremacy.”
Saira Rao, according to her Twitter bio, is a “First generation Indian-American. Former congressional candidate for Colorado’s CD1.”
Rao also co-hosts Race2Dinner, which is “A place to start thinking through how you actively uphold white supremacy every minute of every day,” as well as featuring her pronouns.

Many of Rao’s previous tweets have garnered considerable backlash for bizarre hard-left, anti-white pronouncements; often resulting in heavy ratios–where the tweet attracts more disgruntled replies than likes or retweets.
In a now-deleted tweet, Rao attempted to blame the Trump Administration, racism, and bigotry for Kobe Bryant and his thirteen-year-old daughter’s tragic death in a helicopter crash last Sunday.

National File previously reported on a tweet made by Race2Dinner, the event she co-created, which tried to claim that “being nice” was a “tool of white supremacy.”
The tweet read: “White women’s obsession with “being nice” is one of the most dangerous tools of white supremacy.”

The tweet immediately got ratioed by social media users finding the message absurd.
One tweeter said: “This type of “woke” Progressive nonsense is beyond parody. Pushing this tripe is what got you Brexit, Trump and half a dozen other “populist” (aka popular with normal people) election wins.
“Personally I say keep it up, it alienates the undecided / independent voters…”

To which this account replied, “The entire woke culture is a parody.”

Takes of this nature, in the past, have sometimes been indistinguishable to famous internet parody accounts, including Titania McGrath and Jarvis DuPont.
