A new book arrives Tuesday: “Uprising: Who the Hell Said You Can’t Ditch and Switch? — the Awakening of Diamond and Silk,” penned by Diamond and Silk, two sisters who became a positive force for President Trump through their clear messaging, forthright style and sheer gumption. The book offers a candid review about their experiences and the wisdom that emerged from them.
“We are not politically correct; we are politically direct. We’re just two black chicks who’s down with politics, who love this country, stand for the flag, and love the president of the United States,” Diamond and Silk tell The Washington Times in a joint statement.
The book reveals that sisters Lynette and Rochelle Hardaway are the daughters of a pastor and were textile factory workers in North Carolina. They dedicated their book to God. They supported Mr. Trump the minute he revealed his intent to run for president. It has been an amazing road for them, but not without strife.
“Our critics — who claimed to be civilized and more enlightened than us deplorables — called us coons, Uncle Toms, and sellouts. They marginalized us, criticized us, stigmatized us, and when that failed, they tried to assassinate our characters and ruin our reputations. Through it all, no matter how they tried to hide us or get rid of us, Diamond and Silk weren’t going anywhere. We were a force to be reckoned with,” the pair wrote in the book.
“So imagine how tickled pink we were when Donald Trump won; we knew that it was time for the Left and the left-wing media to start eating crow,” they advised.
The 256-page book is from Regnery Publishing. In addition, Diamond and Silk have a podcast on Apple, plus “Diamond and Silk Crystal Clear,” a new show on NewsMax TV — the sisters deemed “honest, patriotic, sometimes controversial and always entertaining” by Newsmax CEO Christopher Rudd.
