Anticapitalist Sponsored By Twitter CEO Accuses Amy Coney Barrett Of ‘Colonialism’ For Adopting From Haiti – Desmond Berg

Ibram X. Kendi, a top proponent of racist critical race theory and author of the bestselling book “How to Be an Antiracist,” attacked President Donald Trump’s likely Supreme Court nominee, federal Judge Amy Coney Barrett, as a white supremacist on Saturday for adopting two children from Haiti.

“Some White colonizers ‘adopted’ Black children,” Kendi wrote on Twitter. “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 was responding to a tweet featuring parents with black children that didn’t even depict Coney Barrett. Kendi said it didn’t matter, because reasons.

“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 wrote, because according to his own philosophy, absolutely nothing can abdicate white people of their inborn racism.

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.

Others quickly supported Kendi’s racist smear. Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a left-wing historian, added context to Kendi’s claim to perpetuate the idea that parents who adopt non-white children are somehow racist because of their ancestry.

“Many authoritarians seized children of color for adoption by White Christians,” Ben-Ghiat wrote. “Pinochet’s regime did this with indigenous kids and Nazis took Aryan looking Poles for German families. Trump takes migrant kids for adoption by Evangelicals.”

Jonathan Chait, a writer for New York Magazine, also came to Kendi’s defense, writing that Kendi is simply being misunderstood.

Trump formally announced Coney Barrett as the Supreme Court nominee at the White House on September 26. She would replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away last week at the age of 87 due to complications from pancreatic cancer.
