You don’t go after people’s kids. I don’t give a hoot what side of this whole thing you are on.
I thought it was as disgusting when people would go after the Obama kids as it is when people go after Barron Trump for example. The kids aren’t setting policy, leave them the hell alone.
That being said, it seems that a lot of liberals just haven’t gotten the memo on that and that they are going after Judge Barrett’s kids while this whole confirmation is going on. Which is funny, because they don’t exactly have take your child to work day at the Supreme Court.
I think the famous liberal and journalist, Glenn Greenwald, said it best when he tweeted, ‘Adoption is one of the most beautiful things that exists in the world, and while — like everything, including biological families — it can foster abuse, casually insinuating that for adoptive parents is despicable.’
The idea that someone would turn their lives upside down in order to adopt two children as ‘props’ is beyond comprehension really. As a father I know how much time, energy, love, frustration and worry goes into raising children, to adopt a parentless child is one of the most amazing and selfless things a person can do on this Earth. I will flat out tell you that I am not a good enough person to make that sacrifice, I am too selfish.
Soon to be Justice Barrett on the other hand, she did make that choice and the fact that is being used AGAINST her is down right sick …
[Opinion] During her Senate confirmation hearings this week, Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett was given a chance to respond to accusations against her that her adoption of two Haitian children was in any way unethical.
Senator John Kennedy (R – LA) used some of his time on Tuesday to give Barrett a chance to respond to allegations within leftist popular culture that she may be a “white colonizer” for adopting black children.
“Some butthead professor at Boston University,” began Kennedy, “says that because you and your husband have two children of color that you’re a white colonist. The implication is that you’re a racist, and that you use your two children as props. Do you use your children as props?”
Kennedy was referring to comments made by Ibram X. Kendi, famed author of the controversial New York Times bestseller How to Be an Antiracist. Kendi posted to Twitter on September 26th – the same day that President Trump announced his nomination of Justice Barrett – that the adoption of black children by “white colonizers” is often a tactic to deny any accusations of racism.
