Before the Post-Roe Judiciary Committee Hearing, Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT), made a passionate statement. Owens bravely took a bold step where other Black leaders would not: He called out the racism and support of the Left.
Owens first thanked his fellow Republicans for their, “eloquent defense of life,” and said he raises his voice in recognizing the “sanctity of all life.”
Owens joined the fray. He was unflinching in his aggression:
“Having grown up in the Jim Crow South, with Segregation and KKK, I’m familiar with the true racism, intolerance, and hate, all due to the color of my skin. I see the same thing today in 2022 as the hard Left, the so-called “party of tolerance” who bang the drum of racism, inequality, inequity, do not practice what they preach.”
Praise the Lord! Pass the pork chops. This needed to be said out loud, and needs to be played on loop in campaign ads, and every public service announcement where the Left is trying to convince us that whatever they are pushing is for “the common good.” Aside from author and commentator Vince Everett Ellison, you hear very few so-called leaders or commentators call out what the Democrats and the Left do for what it is: Racism.
Owens is a fresh freshman congressman who showed courage and leadership to rise up.
Owens continued, pointing out the pro-life organizations that have been targeted, the violent protests across the nation and in front of SCOTUS justices’ homes, and the assassination attempt against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But Owens returned to his main focus and took the time to outline the “racially-charged firestorm against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.”
“That’s nothing new for Justice Thomas, who has been the target of the elitist Left for 40 years. Instead of celebrating the second Black American in our nation’s history in the highest court, they declared open seasons with vicious, racist attacks. Just because he’s an articulate, confident, Black American, who loves the American tenets of God, country, and family. Just because he’s a Black man who dares to think differently than they would love for him to think.”
It’s spot-on. RedState has documented some of the racist garbage that masquerades as “truth” and debate here, here, and here.
Owens was just getting started, pointing to the overt racism directed towards new Hispanic Congresswoman Mayra Flores (R-TX), Virginia’s Republican Lieutenant Governor Winsome Sears, and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). For Owen’s second layer of his very rich proof cake, he called out a cartoonist for the Salt Lake City TribuneHe was portrayed as a White Klansman.
“So typical of the condescending racism. If these same attacks were aimed at Barack Obama it would be called out by this committee and the media for exactly what it is: Pure Racism.”
Ivory Soap is pure, and Ralph Northam’s cape and hood are white. Leftists who cries white supremacy, find racism beneath every rock should also take a good look in the mirror.
Owens rightly decried the Left’s intent: to destroy American institutions, foment fear, and lie about just who are the ones trying to take away Constitutional rights.
“Instead of working to delegitimize our institutions, defaulting to fearmongering tactics, and basic arguments that the Supreme Court wants to take away our rights, we should be honest with the American people.”
This would necessitate Leftists actually working to hear, and not to demonize average Americans. Owens also acknowledged that and warned them about November.
Owens completed his decimation of the Left’s bigoted schemes by pointing out the Black babies that have died in abortions. The following 64 million were murdered between 1973 and 2003: Roe23 million were Black when federal law was passed. The Left foments anger over Black men and women killed by white police officers, but they don’t shed a tear for Black babies killed in abortions. Even worse are the so-called Black politicians and leaders. Lori Lightfoot of Chicago ignores Black children getting shot every weekend and wants Chicago to become a refuge for women who want to kill their kids.
It is the typical Leftist Leftist who uses dead Black bodies for inciting, entice and other political ends.
“Roe v. Wade cost us 23 million innocent lives. The anti-slavery Democrat Dred ScottIt was flawed in 1857. Overcoming RoeIt did not ban abortions nor take away Americans’ constitutional rights. It put the decision in the state’s hands, in the hands of We The People, where it belongs.”
Owens throws down his gauntlet.
“To the angry Left, it’s time to settle down, take off your mask, and show your cowardly faces. Put down your stones and firebombs and through civil debate convince us that you’re right.”
Imagine what that would look like. We may never find out.
Owens’ mic drop moment:
“My prediction is you have no clue.
“In the meanwhile, a Black constitutionalist on the Supreme Court who stands with that decision should be revered, not ridiculed.”
It took him just five minutes. You don’t need to steal his time.
