Tolerance and acceptance or racism and Marxism; which side are you on? One of the greatest challenges for leaders in society is to educate public opinion. What passes for leadership today is of questionable rather than unquestioned value. Let me give you an example.
Leftist, racist, opportunist, and author Dr. Ibram Kendi is slandering Amy Coney Barrett. He is publicly asserting her adoption of Haitian children is for personal gain. Kendi says her reason is to shield herself from accusations of racism. Ostensibly she did the adoptions to further her career.
Kendi appears to have been responding to a picture of Barrett with her two adopted Haitian children. Now, there was a small issue with the photo. The photo was not a picture of Barrett. So, maybe it was a mistaken identity. Right? Maybe he knew the person in the picture and he was speaking from the perspective of personal interaction. He has not clarified the point.
Or maybe he was just assuming he knew what was in another’s heart without knowing her at all. That actually seems a problematic position for someone accusing another of discrimination. It seems unlikely Kendi and Barrett are close friends. But, you know what they say about “assume.” It makes an ass of you and me.
The Kendi position
So here is Kendi from Twitter:
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.
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.
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.
Although Kendi did not specifically accuse Barrett of using her Haitian children as “props.” Those specific words are not directly written. The accusation she’s using them to hide accusations of racism, to hide accusations of racism is there. It is implicit in reading the words. His comments are clear and racist.
My question to you is: Is Kendi a leader today? Where would he lead us if he could? He clearly seems to be trying to drag us into a very racist place. It is a place of division, hatred and weakness. Do we want to go in that direction? What can possibly be gained? What are we going to vote to support?
The audience response
Here are some responses to Dr. Kendi’s musings:
- “Are you suggesting that any white family who adopts black children are colonizers and that interracial adoption is somehow evil? Please clarify because if this is your position, it’s an evil one…”
- “You ever thought that just maybe race is irrelevant to some people when it comes to loving another human.. Crazy I know…”
- “Or two orphaned Haitian children are adopted by a white family who love these children as if they are their own and are loved by aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins they otherwise would never have known…”
- “Ibram you going to adopt a starving child from Haiti or just b***h about white people adopting a child & giving them an opportunity they wouldn’t ever have in poverty…”
- “‘I wish those black kids had stayed in their Haitian orphanage instead of coming to America,” ‘said the anti-racist.”
- “This person is a disgusting racist. Period,”
- Tom Cotton said, “Ibram Kendi launches a cruel, racist attack against Judge Barrett and her family. But what else would we expect from a fraud like him?”
Wrapping it up
On Saturday, President Trump officially nominated Barrett to be the next Supreme Court justice.
Perhaps we have, at this moment, a clear depiction of the difference in the directions of our political parties. The Leftists, democrats, seek division, violence, confiscation of personal property, and liberty. They promote racism, envy, and division based on sex, religion, and ethnicity. We expect the Kavanaugh hearings redux.
Judge Barrett supports the constitution. She has values and principles which are tolerant and accepting. Judge Barrett has lived an apparently exemplary life. She has a record of making decisions based on the law as written. Which direction do you want our leaders to take America? Tolerance and acceptance or racism and Marxism; which side are you on?
