Kara McCullough, Crowned Miss USA, a Black Conservative Who Calls Health Care a ‘Privilege’

56

Well, kudos to the newly crowned Miss USA, a black conservative from Washington, D.C., named Kara McCullough who has barely stepped into the public limelight, and is already angering the left.

Why?

Kara McCullough, the new Miss USA, has completely baffled and angered the left for her conservative views.

Not only is she a black conservative — a combination that completely flummoxes the left. But she made a couple statements during her competition Q&A session that set the left on fire.

Specifically, she called health care a privilege, not a right. And she said she didn’t want to be regared as a feminist — the tag, these days, just seems too man-hating, she suggested.

Oh, and she’s no dummy, either. McCullough serves as a scientist for a government agency.

The left is really scratching its head, wondering where it went wrong with her — how she escaped from the leftist box.

Here’s the story, from the Daily Mail:

“An African-American nuclear chemist from Washington, DC, won the 2017 edition of Miss USA on Sunday night after telling the audience about her conservative political viewpoints.

“Kára McCullough, a 25-year-old nuclear chemist who works for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told the audience how she doesn’t necessarily view herself as a feminist and said that health care is a privilege and not a right.

“She also won plaudits for wearing her hair natural and curly throughout the competition. …

“The finalists included the women representing Minnesota, the District of Columbia and New Jersey.
The runner-up was Miss New Jersey Chhavi Verg, a student at Rutgers University studying marketing and Spanish.

“The second runner-up was Miss Minnesota Meridith Gould, who is studying apparel retail merchandising at the University of Minnesota.

“McCullough, the 65th crowned Miss USA, is a 25-year-old chemist working for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a physical scientist. She graduated from South Carolina State University with a degree in chemistry and a concentration in radio chemistry.

“‘I’m extremely thankful for this opportunity,’ she said after the event. ‘I just want to encourage so many women nationwide to find their passion in any subject possible and understand that nothing is difficult if you really, truly put the work in for it.’ …

“McCullough was born in Naples, Italy, and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She wants to inspire children to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“‘I love science,’ McCullough said after the Sunday event. ‘I look at this as a great opportunity to … get to experience worldwide culture, as well as just having the opportunity to be impacted by so many children, hopefully in the math and sciences.’

“While at school, she was a member of the Honors College, the American Chemical Society, the Health Physics Society, the American Association of Blacks in Engineering and the American Nuclear Society.

“During the final round of the competition, each competitor was asked what they consider feminism to be, and whether or not they consider themselves feminists.

“McCullough said she prefers not to use the word ‘feminist,’ and instead ‘transferred the word feminist to equalism.’

“‘I don’t want to call myself a feminist,’ McCullough said. ‘Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.’

“After the pageant, McCullough expanded on her views on feminism.

“‘I believe we’ve come a long way and there is more work to be done,’ McCullough, said. ‘I think domestically we are making progress and I do believe that we will become equal one day.’

“In the questions portion, she was also individually asked if affordable healthcare is a right or privilege, responding that she thought that healthcare should only go to those with jobs.”

      When did it become a RIGHT? We always had to pay our medical bills if the insurance WE PAID FOR didn’t cover them.

    Whadda bozo.

  • Kenneth Sandale

    Nuclear chemist????? Even funnier than when Jimmy Carter was calling himself a “nucular” [sic] physicist She is some nobody beauty queen.

    The college she went to is not known for chemistry. Did she barely graduate from high school? No one would be in awe of her if she were white or a liberal.

      Sour grapes coming from you a grade school flunk out.

      • Drew the Infidel

        I was thinking more along the lines of a Sesame Street dropout. And it was George W. who mispronounced the word “nuclear”, not the peanut farmer.

    • Craig

      WOW! What a jealous POS you are. Keep sucking for socialism, POS Kenny. Your ignorance of nuclear medicine is glaring.
      Keep your eye on your McDonald’s grill and stop texting.

      • Kenneth Sandale

        I’m not a socialist. Also, it is funny that you would yell that I am far left-wing ijn response to a post that was also hostile to Jimmy Carter.

        Explain what caused you to claim I am a socialist. Is anyone who disagrees with you on anything a “socialist”?

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Wow, you must be a real rocket surgeon to come up with that, or are you a brain scientist?

  • Midnattsol

    The left are already attacking her. They do not like STEM girls (or anyone) except those who have been bought and paid for by the Climate Inquisition because the STEM girls can see through their lies.

  • Derek Sharron

    She has a degree in chemistry. University of South Carolina’s ranking in the 2017 edition of Best Colleges is National Universities, 107. She is not a scientist. Her father was in the military, so she has been on government healthcare all of her life. She works for the government, so she is still on government healthcare. She is the product of government subsidies. Government employees should pay for health insurance just like the rest of us.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      And your day job is?

      • Derek Sharron

        retired

        • Mahou Shoujo

          The you should have enough time to figure this stuff out.

          • Craig

            No, derek the parasite is full of hatred, must be because he was a life long McDonald’s employee.
            His posts are steaming with envy, hate and jealousy. Poor little POS derek.

    • Mack Pooh

      Hang on a second there, sugarbritches.

      I am a retired Soldier of 24 years, combat veteran, disabled due to my service, and I have regular health insurance. I do not use the VA healthcare because of its faudulent, union directed, and unprofessional and manipulated medical focus.

      My healthcare is not a subsidy, but a budgeted perk of retirement and having served my country for almost a quarter century, and I PAY FOR MY INSURANCE FOR MY FAMILY…

      Wow, you folks who spend your time on these sites should just focus on issues at hand instead of trying to think….

      • Derek Sharron

        She believes that healthcare is not a right, which is fine with me, but for her to say it after growing up with government provided healthcare, and for her now to be working for the government and receiving government funded healthcare, seems a bit out of place. Everyone’s taxes have been paying for her healthcare.

        • Craig

          Eat sheist, derek the parasite. Your socialist trappings and envy are sickening

          • Derek Sharron

            Who is the socialist when I believe everyone should pay for their own healthcare, and she has not lived that way?

          • Mack Pooh

            Everyone should pay for their own healthcare. That said, healthcare comes when you work, have a job, have a life……
            If you are part of the lazy tunnel society, taxpayers may very well foot the tab, but those who enjoy sitting on their buttock, they must be required to work somewhere for that healthcare.
            Apparently she has earned her medical/healthcare whether it is being the spouse or child of a veteran, her employment, etc….
            There is a difference, but as I have noticed, these sites tend to portray the intellectually flawed no matter their partisan attempts.

          • Derek Sharron

            Healthcare does not automatically come when you have a job, have a life. Employees generally select a healthcare plan offered by their employer and pay for a group policy. They receive a good discount for being in a group policy. It is not 100% free by any means. There are a few which are, but not the majority. Her healthcare policy, with a good government agency, is more than likely 100% covered. The government should pay employees for working, and that is it. It should not pay for their pensions or their health insurance. Why should it pay for their health insurance? Why not their life insurance, car insurance, home insurance? It keeps adding up and the tax payer gets stuck with the bill or the increasing debt.

        • mztore

          From what I’ve heard, government healthcare has NEVER been a good deal….financially or health wise. It is just another way for big goobernent to spend YOUR money.

    • Mack Pooh

      P.S…

      I have two Masters Degree’s……..does that make me a subsidy because I used GI Bills. Justva,silly question…

      • Drew the Infidel

        I have the same question, only I used the GI Bill after serving in Vietnam for the last two years of my undergraduate degree (while working three part-time jobs) and both years of my masters.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Let me guess, one is in alternate gender identification and adaptation to conventional pluming fixtures, the other in social cult worship among the illiterate.

      • Derek Sharron

        This article is about healthcare. And, I am sure you did not go on national tv spouting off about everyone should pay for their own education.

        • Mack Pooh

          Absolutely not!! Education is not meant to be free, contrary to what liberals may dream. The article introduced Miss USA and her life; education, political orientation, healthcare, employment……
          So, I touched on all of the above as it was presented…..

      Perhaps you might feel better if she were leftist and knocking Trump but maybe not.

    • Craig

      WooHoo. Smart, a conservative and a babe.

    • Craig

      Eat sheist, Derek the parasite. Those of us who work, get healthcare as a benefit. Since you like to blow rat obama, which is not a job, you get no healthcare as a benefit.
      Your hate for working Americans is so very obvious.
      Hey, Cuba has some openings for more communist slaves. Free healthcare there.

  • santashandler

    Black and conservative. That is a very rare combination indeed. Of course they don’t know what to do with her because liberalism is a mental disorder and she seems to have some brains

    • Steve

      She doesn’t have to be a member of black lives matters because she matters.

      • santashandler

        Everyone does.

        • Craig

          No…anti-American democrats do not.

          • santashandler

            Right. Forgot.

  • Inmate of Diversityland

    Yes, very refreshing. Good behavior has its own rewards.

  • yiyoya

    If she really is a top-notch intellect in what I’m assuming is a highly competitive and demanding field as nuclear chemistry, what is she doing wasting time in a beauty contest? If a white, male nuclear scientist took time off to compete in Mr.Universe wouldn’t most of us be scratching our heads? Wouldn’t we hesitate to take him seriously?

    Sorry, but Affirmative-Action puts a cloud of uncertainty over every black, female, and latino graduate’s head.

    • M.D. Roud

      I see what you mean but we have to let people have their frivolities. She shouldn’t have a cloud over her head because of her race just like you and I shouldn’t. I’m sure you are just frustrated and I know how you feel but you can’t let that be how you see the world. Ideas define people, not their melanin count.

      • yiyoya

        I should have made myself clearer, I was thinking about the soft bigotry of low expectations which is inherent in Affirmative-Action. Of the three categories I mentioned neither female nor Latino are races, and from what I’ve read it’s white women who have benefited the most from Affirmative-Action, if one can call it a benefit. It’s the lowered standards of admission and graduation that put a cloud of uncertainty over the qualifications of a minority graduate, not their race. From what I’ve read it’s a real phenomenon in the work place.

        Thomas Sowell revealed the shockingly cynical and dispiriting calculations that lie just beneath the surface of the “good intentions” of Affirmative-Action in his article ” ‘Favors’ to Blacks”, “Back in the 1960s, as large numbers of black students were entering a certain Ivy League university for the first time, someone asked a chemistry professor — off the record — what his response to them was. He said, “I give them all A’s and B’s. To hell with them.”

        • Fatimah Mohamed

          Undoubtedly the a’s and b’s that mr and mrs obsma obtained at harvard and princeton.

    • Steve

      It’s a good point but on the other hand professions are not governed by a requisite for changing typical roles by society for men and women. Maybe if she look like elizabeth warren she might not be wanting to compete in a beauty pagaent. Most males in professions like physics and chemistry probably have not seen the inside of a gym since junior high school. Let’s do extend her credit though for at least trying to do things the right way and being a conservative as well. She is a good role model for blacks vs black lives matters plus she is attractive. Let her have some fun.

      • mztore

        Wonder if any of you fine folks ever considered that fact that there is a lot of $$ involved in that pageant. Maybe it will help her pay off some of her student loans as well as make a lot of new contacts for her. Might be nice to start her adult life without having to make payments for the next 20 or 30 years….which appears to be the norm anymore.

        • Steve

          It crossed my mind actually about the money and its a good point. To me she is doing something that a lot of women who are attractive do. Its no big deal. I’m happy to see her politics are to the right and apparently she has a good head on her shoulders. Someone mentioned affirmative action and its quite possible some of it going on here. However, she looks like – from what i gather from the story – to be a good role model that is succeeding in a good way.

          • mztore

            Thanks. I like to think I’m different, and usually wind up on the short end of the stick so to speak. Nice to know there are actually people out there who do think in a similar way. Thanks for making me ‘feel better’….:o)

    • Tatiana Covington

      Because girls like to show off how beautiful they are (till aging gets them). You know, attract the male, and all that.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Let me see, a college educated black conservative nuclear physicist who believes in individual initiative instead of government handouts. How long before the loudmouth losers start accusing her of “acting white”?

    Some people just simply cannot stand prosperity. They are like frogs in a bucket, when another starts to climb out another jumps on its back and drags it back into the muck.

    • Tatiana Covington

      How long? Even money says it started inside 10 minutes of her saying that.

    A black Conservative! Who’d a-thunk it?

    I’ll bet the awards committee members are going bat guano!

  • InfidelCrusader

    Now that her political views are known I predict that a reason will be found to strip her of the title. It should only be a matter of time.

  • Craig

    Excellent, very smart young woman. Proud to call her an American, proud of her intelligence and courage.
    What she said is true, healthcare is a privilege, usually associated to employment.
    The communist democrats, and their parasite base, want everything for free.
    democrats are the enemy.

  • Grant Woodside

    Natural and curly hair,,,,,,,,,,,, certainly not guilty of “cultural appropriation”.
    Very beautiful and intelligent young woman.
    What if Bruce/Caitlyn were accused of “gender appropriation” ?
    Could happen some day, world is completely strange these days.
