Kára Deidra McCullough, born on September 9, 1991, is a physical scientist at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. On May 14, 2017, she represented District of Columbia at Miss USA 2017 and was crowned Miss USA 2017.
Kára was born in Naples, Italy to Betty Ann Parker and Artensel E. McCullough Sr. Her father was a member of the United States Marine Corps, and she thus lived in various places such as Sicily, South Korea, Japan, and Hawaii. Kára was later raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. McCullough attended South Carolina State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry with a concentration in radio-chemistry and served as the school’s 75th Miss South Carolina State University. While a student, Kára was a member of the American Chemical Society, the Health Physics Society, and the American Nuclear Society. She has been inducted into the Golden Key International Honour Society and the National Society of Black Engineers.
Kára works as an emergency preparedness specialist in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response.
You would think that women and men across America would be celebrating this special woman. But you would be wrong.
The feminists and those who hate America, hate Miss USA Kára Deidra McCullough. Why?
In a Fox News article titled Miss USA Kara McCullough calls health care a privilege, sparks controversy Sasha Savitsky reports:
The newly-crowned Miss USA is already under fire.
Kara McCullough, of the District of Columbia, was asked during Sunday night’s pageant whether she thinks that affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege. She said it is a privilege.
“As a government employee, I’m granted health care and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs,” the 25-year-old shared.
Later in the competition, she also was asked what she considers feminism to be and whether she considers herself a feminist. McCullough said she likes to “transpose” the word feminism to “equalism.”
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission scientist’s answers did not sit well with some viewers, who took to social media to slam her remarks.
An accomplished woman who is articulate, beautiful, has strong beliefs about serving the nation and feels healthcare is a privilege is now demonized. Do you see a pattern here? If you are successful you are the enemy of the state. If you believe government is the problem and not the solution then you are an enemy of the state. Even if you work for the government and express your views you are an enemy of the state.
So why is Kára Deidra McCullough under attack?
Jeffrey Tucker, the Director of Content for the Foundation for Economic Education states:
It finally struck me why. For this crowd [the center-left], all their hopes and dreams are bound up with particular political processes, outcomes, and institutions. The state is their favorite tool for all the good they aspire to do in this world. It must be protected, guarded, defended, celebrated. The illusion that the government is not a taker but a giver and the source of all good things must be maintained. The gloss of the democratic process must be constantly refurbished so that the essential sanctity of the public sector can be constantly cited as the highest calling.
The center-left has at least one hundred years of work and resources invested in the state’s health, well being, reputation, and exalted moral status. Nothing must be allowed to threaten it or take it down a peg or two. Any failures must be deemed as temporary setbacks. The slightest sign of some success must be trumpeted constantly. The population must be subjected to unrelenting homilies on the essential holiness of the public sector.Their education told them this. Their degrees and ruling-class pedigree were hard earned. This is what has inspired them. They believe so strongly that they can make the world a better place through the managerial state that it has become their religion. It’s their very core!
If you are against the state then you are an enemy of the state. The center-left has declared Kára Deidra McCullough an enemy of the state.
