Leftists accuse 'white women' of losing midterms for Dems

two voters marking ballotsHighly recognized leftists across America are blaming “white women” for Democratic candidates losing major midterm races in red states.

Even though Democrats were able to win back the majority in the United States House of Representatives, they were unable to so in the Senate and register wins in key gubernatorial races, and as a result, white women were attacked by liberals for spoiling their long-anticipated blue takeover.

White women targeted on social media

After suffering devastating losses at midterm ballot boxes – especially those keeping them from overtaking the Senate majority from Republicans – vocal Democrats are crying foul that their so-called “blue wave” was crushed by white women who they believe are upholding white supremacy.

“Prominent liberal voices offered scathing critiques of the demographic they blamed most for the lack of ‘blue wave’ victory in the midterm elections on Tuesday – white women,” TheBlaze reported.

The predominant theme that leftist activists and personalities embraced to blame Democrats’ Tuesday losses was bigotry – as the race card was played in numerous social media posts complaining about midterm results.

“[W]hite women uphold white supremacy through their vote,” liberal activist Marisa Kabas posted on Twitter. ‘[T]hey have no qualms about hurting women of color, and that’s an objective truth.”

Well-known comedian and writer Travon Free blamed racism for Democrats’ Beto O’Rourke losing to former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, and he inserted a graphic indicating that 59 percent of white women voted for the victorious conservative incumbent.

“Black women voted 95% for Beto,” Free pointed out, according to TheBlaze. “White women did what white women do.”

A similar theme was struck on social media by Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy, who also presented the percentage of white women who voted for Cruz – as well as for the Republican gubernatorial candidates in Florida (Ron DeSantis and Georgia (Brian Kemp).

“White women: footsoldiers of the patriarchy,” Eltahawy tweeted Wednesday, according to Breitbart News.

The screenshots she included showed the margins of victory conservative candidates had in three states with white women voters – from 52 percent in the Peach State to a slim 2 percent in the Sunshine State.

“According to the results, 76 percent of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp, versus 24 percent for Democrat candidate Stacy Abrams,” Breitbart’s Kristina Wong noted from the figures Eltahawy presented. “In Texas, 59 percent of white women voted for Cruz versus 39 percent for Rep. Beto O’Rourke. In Florida, it was much tighter, with 51 percent voting for DeSantis, and 49 percent voting for his opponent Andrew Gillum.”

Even though a wide array of leftist personalities in the media and entertainment industry have been targeted and exposed for sexually harassing women in the #MeToo movement, Eltahawy insisted in her tweet that white women were sealing their own demise by casting their ballots for conservative Republicans.

“[White women voted for Republicans] against their own interests [and allied] with white supremacist patriarchy,” Eltahawy posted on Twitter. “They are loyal to the party – even if political moderates & those who identify as progressive Left have concluded that GOP doesn’t respect women’s voices and bodies.”

Leftist media joins attack against white women

Media personalities joined the barrage against white women for Democrats losing their midterm contests.

Jamil White – a frequent guest on MSNBC – ripped into white women for diminishing the “blue wave” to less than a ripple on election day.

“White women are a Republican constituency, and in many states, they again voted as if patriarchy would protect them,” White contended. “50 percent or more for DeSantis, Cruz and Kemp. I am unsure when they will understand the damage that they do – and not just to themselves.”

New York Magazine writer Hillary Kelly also tried to put a guilt trip on white women.

“Really, truly embarrassed that 76 percent of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp. It’s shameful. Humiliating,” Kelly tweeted Wednesday. “Thinking about driving my [expletive] down there next election and personally talking to as many of these fools as possible.”

Liberal writer Courtney Enlow let her virulent rant flow against white women, as well.

“We have to do better, white women,” Enlow tweeted. “Doing [expletive] SOMETHING would be a [curse word] start. Have the awkward conversations, take the emotional labor off the backs of women who have more on their [curse word] plate than we ever will. Do. Better.”

Issues not addressed by leftists

African American women, on the other hand, predominantly voted for black candidates and Democratic candidates who made themselves out to champion minorities.

“In contrast, an overwhelming majority of black men and women voted for Abrams, O’Rourke and Gillum,” Wong noted. “Abrams and Gillum are black, while O’Rourke is white.”

A few important details were left out of the liberal rants against conservative white women.

“There was, however, no mention that Georgia, Texas and Florida are red states that overwhelmingly voted Republican in the 2016 presidential race,” Wong stressed. “There was also no mention that Cruz is actually Latino.”

Hispanics and white males join fray

Hispanics and white men also contributed to the left’s attack on white women for ruining the election that many Democrats believed would put them in control of the Senate and key states.

Left-leaning Alexis Isabel took to Twitter to slam white women in red states for Democrats’ crushing defeats Tuesday night.

“White women helped elect Trump, and tonight they helped elect DeSantis and Cruz,” Isabel tweeted Wednesday. “Time to stop pretending like they aren’t complicit in white supremacy because they cling to their victimhood.”

Besides some white women attacking other white women on Twitter for not voting Democrat, some white men also blasted white women for not bolstering the so-called “blue wave” at their local polling stations.

“CALLING-IN WHITE PEOPLE – especially white women,” Matt McGorry tweeted Wednesday. “We must, must do better ya’ll. We must dust off the indoctrination of white supremacy and truly overstand our humanity is at stake until we SHOW the [expletive] UP and work toward a vision of true freedom and Liberation for all people.”

Calling out the hypocrisy

On the other hand, some leftist women had to take to Twitter to defend themselves for insisting that not “all white women are bigots.”

“Absolutely shocking how many people are clogging my mentions with assumptions about my ethnicity – accusations of white supremacy and ad hom insults because I pointed out a basic inaccuracy in the line of thinking that all white women are bigots,” Sulome Anderson tweeted Wednesday. “Get your [expletive] together, people.”

Leftists’ hypocrisy in crying racism was also pointed out in social media conversations, which stressed liberals’ racist assumption that a person should vote according to his or her race – if he or she is not white, that is.

“Seeing people get so upset at white women for voting a particular way is quite interesting… it's racist, but it's interesting,” Eric July tweeted Thursday. “It goes to show that if you are not white and male, you are expected vote Democrat and anything outside of that is a deviation and intolerable.”

Conservative African American personality Candace Owens of Turning Point celebrated the loss of the black gubernatorial candidate, Gillum, in Florida. This came after being in the center of a controversy for arguing against the assertion that a person must vote Democrat if they are black – insisting that black voters should not be taken for granted by Democrats.

 “You win with BETTER IDEAS. Not BLACKER SKIN,” Owens tweeted Wednesday. “Andrew Gillum just found out that the race card is no longer readily accepted in America. You win with BETTER IDEAS. Not BLACKER SKIN. Congratulations, Florida!”

The irony of blaming white women for voting for the Hispanic (Cuban American) candidate Cruz in Texas simply because he is Republican was pointed out by white female comedian Chelsea Handler – as well as by other conservatives on social media.

“59% of white women voted for Ted Cruz,” Handler tweeted Wednesday. “I don’t know what it is going to take for us to be sisters to other women, but we have to do better than this. We need to vote for the best interests of others, and stop thinking only about ourselves.”
