Well, that backfired. Here is the headline from Fox News:
Trump Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett faces ‘White colonizer’ attacks, other criticism from left, media
The story of this charge being leveled by one “Ibram X. Kendi, an American author who became the new director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University” begins:
“Democrats, the media and activists have ramped up their attacks against Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s nomination to succeed the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.
‘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.”
Got it. Mr. Kendi believes whites who adopt black children are “white colonizers” who are “using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial.”
Let’s take a trip over to The Root:
White Celebrities Who Have Adopted Black Children
And just who are these “white colonizers” – to borrow from Boston University’s Ibram X. Kendi?
Madonna, who adopted “David Banda and Mercy James from Malawi.”
Jane Fonda, who “adopted American-born daughter Mary Luana Williams when Mary was 14 years old.”
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who adopted “Maddox Chivan from Cambodia, Zahara Marley from Ethiopia and Pax Thien from Vietnam.”
Charlize Theron, “who adopted her son Jackson, from her native country of South Africa in 2012.”
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, while then-married, “adopted son, Connor Cruise.”
Mariska Hargitay The star of Law & Order: SVU adopted daughter Amaya.
Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw adopted son Theo.
Sandra Bullock adopted son Louis.
And oh yes. There is no less than Mitt Romney’s family. Yes indeed, like all of the lefty Hollywood stars listed above, a son of Romney’s adopted Kieran James Romney, giving the elder Romney a black grandchild.
There are more names on The Root’s list. But the game the Left is playing here with Amy Coney Barrett is all too blatantly obvious – and racist.
The fact that Amy Barrett has adopted two black kids makes her a “white colonizer, ” according to Mr. Kendi of BU. But if adopting a black child (two, in Barrett’s case) makes Barrett a “white colonizer”, whose goal was to have “ ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people” – then, quite effectively if unknowingly, Kendi has just accused Madonna, Jane Fonda, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, Mariska Hargitay, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Sandra Bullock and all the rest on The Root’s list of the same.
To state the obvious – except to Mr. Kendi – not one of the celebs deserves to be attacked like this any more than does Amy Coney Barrett. Suffice to say, unless Kendi or anyone else comes forward with news to the contrary, one can easily believe that all the white celebrities on this list adopted their black kids for the same reason Amy Barrett did – to love them.
The real lesson here? In the now budding drive to bork Amy Coney Barrett, nothing is off the table. And if that includes calling all these left-leaning Hollywood celebrities “white colonizers” whose racist ways are all about adopting kids who are black so they can indoctrinate them into the “‘superior’ ways of White people” – then so be it.
You can’t make it up.
Get the popcorn.
