The left has become progressively more irate as the days since Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death have stretched on. It was just over a week after the legendary leftist justice died that the president announced Amy Coney Barrett would be his nomination to replace the late Ginsburg.
However, Barrett has turned out to be exactly what the left fears: a Christian, mother, and a constitutional hardliner. That combination has brought out some of the worst in both politicians and supposed journalists who have been scrambling for something to pin on the seemingly unassailable Barrett.
According to Fox News, Ibram X. Kendi who is an American author turned director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University recently railed against Barrett on Twitter for adopting two Black children from Haiti, apparently the worst thing they could find that the conservative justice has done, equating her and her husband to “White colonizers.”
“Some White colonizers ‘adopted’ Black children. They ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity,” Kendi wrote Saturday.
Kendi was responding to a tweet that has since been deleted, about the idea of black children being adopted by white parents. The Boston University affiliate seemed to take a dim view of the matter, saying that they might be doing so to cover up their own racism.
“And whether this is Barrett or not is not the point. It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can’t be racist,” Kendi continued.
“I’m challenging the idea that White parents of kids of color are inherently ‘not racist’ and the bots completely change what I’m saying to ‘White parents of kids of color are inherently racist.’ These live and fake bots are good at their propaganda. Let’s not argue with them.”
Yes, that is correct, this person is saying that families are adopting black children to facilitate their continued racism under the cover of caring for children of color. It’s unclear if they are unfamiliar with what racism actually consists of, or if they are just grasping at straws to try and incriminate the highly conservative nominee, but it doesn’t seem to have yet been contradicted that the years spent raising the Haitian children was done as a cover for racism.
Other Democrats have piled on with their own, somewhat more politically apt, condemnations for Barrett. Leading the pack was Senate Minority Leader Chuch Schumer who said in a Sunday tweet, “Make no mistake: A vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett is a vote to eliminate health care for millions of Americans and to end protections for Americans with pre-existing conditions in the middle the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Not to be outdone, actress Debra Messing has accused the president of attempting to use Barrett’s nomination, something he’s constitutionally tasked with doing, as another way to push the election in his own favor. Her attack came after weeks of speculation that the election could be so close that it is brought before the Supreme Court to decide. If that’s the case, it will likely be partly to do with the mail-in ballots situation which could cause the election to drag on.
Songwriter Diane Warren called Barrett a combination of Aunt Lydia, a character in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and a Stepford wife. So to be clear, again, the left’s complaints with Barrett is that she is liked by the president, is a good wife, mother, and has Christian values. Yeah, that’ll run off Republicans.
