(Liberty Bell) – While this era of American politics has seen the total decline of decorum and respectability, it still seems a step too far to attack someone’s children.
Especially their adopted children of color.
This is the sick, race-obsession of the progressive left, and two perfectly innocent children just became victims of it.
And it just might cost a professor his job, for very good reason.
Calls are mounting for Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi, a professor of humanities at Boston University, to resign after he compared Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Comey Barrett to a “white colonizer” for adopting two children from Haiti.
I’m sure had Barrett not adopted two children, she’d be accused of not caring about POC. So there’s absolutely no winning for enemies of the progressive left.
It began with a tweet from Tea Party Patriots co-founder, Jenny Beth Martin.
“With two adopted children from Haiti, it’s going to be interesting to watch Democrats try to smear Amy Coney Barrett as racist,” she said following ACB’s nomination last week.

Kendi, in response, suggested–sickeningly–that the kids were kids were just “props.”
“Some White colonizers ‘adopted’ Black children,” the professor observed. “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,” Kendi said in a subsequent tweet.
The backlash was swift, as well it ought to have been.
“Ibram Kendi launches a cruel, racist attack against Judge Barrett and her family,” wrote Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR). “But what else would we expect from a fraud like him?”

The New York Times’ Jonathan Chait tried to run cover for Kendi, to no avail.
This is a basic logic error by Kendi's critics. He is simply denying the syllogism that if you adopt a black child) then B you cannot be racist. That is not the same as calling her racist.

Of this reprehensible and evil tweet from Big Media and the elite left's newest highly funded racist, a friend writes: "We are just at the beginning of this hideous line of attack: not just upon Amy Coney Barrett, but upon ourselves, our families, and our children." https://t.co/56sPofBcGn

Nutjob left-wingers who hate America are going to try and destroy Amy Coney Barrett because she loves Jesus Christ, babies, and the Constitution. https://t.co/vmYl5rBBqN

Because Trump picked Amy Coney Barrett for SCOTUS, now Democrats are against allowing White people to adopt children of color. Interesting. https://t.co/9N36wdlJfO

No, the logic is on the LEFT on this one, Jonathan.
We never brought up her adoptions as proof, or lack thereof, of her character.
IT WAS LIBERALS who brought it up in some deleterious manner.
I think her 7 kids are irrelevant to any of this. Only the Left thinks otherwise. https://t.co/nfFtT8XSHd

I think the claim that racists sometimes adopt black children requires some evidence. In my experience that's not the case and it's counter-intuitive to say the least.
