You’ll never guess what the Congressional Black Caucus wants to vote on formally condemning as ‘racially insensitive’
Of all the things to get upset over, this takes the absurdist cake. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) has gotten Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus in a huff – ready to take a very rare and extreme move – because Duffy pointed out the disproportionate number of black babies being aborted in the United States. LifeNews reports:
Duffy…asked members of the Congressional Black Caucus why they were not being more vocal about “how their communities are targeted in abortion,” The Huffington Post reports. Duffy cited the fact that African Americans are 15 percent of the U.S. population but have 40 percent of the abortions. He added that more black babies are killed in abortions in New York City than are born.
Politico reports that Moore and the Congressional Black Caucus responded this week by considering a resolution that would allow them to formally condemn Duffy for what they say were racially insensitive remarks. According to the news outlet:
Offering a privileged resolution to criticize a colleague is highly unusual, but CBC members say the abortion comments amounted to an attack on the black caucus making a formal criticism of Duffy fair game. But Duffy — who said Tuesday he stands by his comments — said the resolution talk is a distraction and he was the one who suffered a character attack.
Rep. G.K. Butterfield, the chairman of the black caucus, said the CBC will discuss options in the coming weeks. The North Carolina Democrat said he found the comments “disgusting.” The effort is being pushed by Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore, multiple sources confirmed.
“How dare this man stand out and lecture us and to call us out. He said CBC members. That was personal,” Moore told POLITICO. “He did make it personal.”
This sounds a lot like claiming turf – that no white person is allowed to disagree with the CBC leftist position. Moore stated:
“Rep. Duffy’s hypocrisy on this issue is as predictable as it is offensive. If he truly, truly wants to fight for the hopeless and voiceless, he should join us,” Moore said, adding that Duffy should support the abortion business Planned Parenthood.
Hypocrisy is a poor choice of words for Rep. Moore. Supporting the disproportionate killing of black babies sounds a lot like…supporting the killing of blacks. The phrase “disparate impact” is often thrown around to castigate policies and procedures that end up harming black people more than other groups. Well, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood have a disproportionate impact on black babies.
If it weren’t for the lives being snuffed out, this would be hilarious.
Since the GOP controls the House, a House vote will never take place.
