Leftists on Wednesday blamed “white women” for high-profile Democrat midterm losses, despite those candidates running in red states.
Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy tweeted Wednesday, “White women: footsoldiers of the patriarchy,” along with what percentage of white women had voted for GOP Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis.
She also tweeted screenshots of the percentages, which were broken down by race and gender.
According to the results, 76 percent of white women in Georgia voted for Kemp, versus 24 percent for Democrat candidate Stacy Abrams. 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.
In contrast, an overwhelming majority of black men and women voted for Abrams, O’Rourke, and Gillum. Abrams and Gillum are black, while O’Rourke is white.
There was, however, no mention that Georgia, Texas, and Florida are red states that overwhelmingly voted Republican in the 2016 presidential race. There was also no mention that Cruz is actually Latino.
Eltahawy tweeted that white women were voting GOP “against their own interests” and allying “with white supremacist patriarchy.”
“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,” she asserted, despite the numerous liberal Hollywood and media figures who have been taken down by the #MeToo movement.
She was not alone in attacking “white women” for their disappointing losses in red states.
