White-progressive elites exhibit a fascinating tendency to show their prejudices when things don't go according to plan. The controversy over the Supreme Court's likely decision to overturn Roe v. Wade is no different. Following the leaked copy of the Supreme Court's draft decision circulated on the web, star Amanda Duarte let her progressive disguise slip by tweeting her anger at the fact that states are set to soon decide on the policies they will apply to abortion.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Duarte wrote: “I do wonder how these white supremacist lawmakers would feel if their little white daughters were raped and impregnated by black men.” Actress Amanda Duarte refers to black men as “rapists” while decrying the SCOTUS decision on abortion.
The irony of calling pro-lifers white supremacists and at the same time calling black males rapists wasn't lost on anyone. Many reacted with scathing critiques of her brazen racism. What would be the consequences if actors such as James Woods or Nick Searcy made a remark that was at all akin to Duarte's sexist, racist tweet? The left-wing chattering class might experience a mass scream accompanied by pearl-clutching and hand-wringing. They'd claim the actors represent all conservatives.
The Left responded to the actress’s tweet deeming it racist, sounding like crickets, with the lead singer being Jiminy Cricket himself. This isn't surprising considering that most prominent progressives aren't really interested in racism or any other form of discrimination. As stated repeatedly, they don't see racism as a social ill that needs to be eradicated. They regard it as a tool to be used against the opposition. This is the reason they haven't been able to stand up for themselves against Duarte's remarks.
However, it appears she was embarrassed or worried about the backlash. The tweet was deleted, and she closed her Twitter account, after posting an apology. “I said something insanely awful and stupid on Twitter last night. The intent does not matter so I will not attempt to defend or explain it. It was racist and has had racist impact. I am terribly sorry to anyone and everyone who read it, and who were hurt by it.”
There is little doubt that the Left will be making a major effort to bring as much race into the Supreme Court debate as possible. The founder and author of the 1619 Project, Nikole Hannah-Jones, got started early. In the morning, she shared an article on Twitter that suggested the pro-life movement was initially an anti-segregationist campaign. They will attempt to portray pro-lifers as racists who are trying to stop women of color from being able to kill their children.
The truth is the pro-life community will do anything to ensure children are safe from abuse and slavery, while Hannah-Jones's ilk would like to assist white progressives in eliminating as many of their children as possible. And, even more importantly, they wish to convince people they are not racists by using pro-choicers of color to promote their pro-choice agenda. Margaret Sanger would be thrilled.
