Just one day after an Islamic State-inspired terrorist murdered 10 white people in Colorado, Democratic Party senators demanded a racist, anti-white ban on further cabinet appointments for white people.
Senators Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI), issued statements on Tuesday:
“I am a ‘no’ vote, on the floor, on all non-diversity nominees… I will vote for racial minorities and LGBTQ but anybody else, I’m not voting for,” Duckworth told reporters.
Duckworth and Hirono’s statements hold special weight considering the 50-50 make up of the U.S. Senate, meaning every vote counts. The White House has already panicked, and sent sympathetic messages for the racially-motivated selection process.
“We would like to have a commitment from the White House that there be more diversity representation in the Cabinet and in senior White House positions and until that happens I will be joining her in voting on non-diversity nominees,” Hirono said, calling their request a “reasonable position.”
“This is not about pitting one diversity group against another. So I’m happy to vote for a Hispanic, a Black person, an LGBTQ person, an AAPI person. I’d just like to see more diversity representation,” she said, using an acronym referring to Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
The news came just a day after a heinous, anti-white terrorist attack in Boulder, Colorado which killed ten.
The murderer, Ahmad al-Issa, had posted anti-Trump messages on his Facebook page, and was a reader of the Washington Post, NPR, and The Intercept, all of which have peddled anti-white race hate.
