The Women’s March claimed that white women need to be worked on and should be blamed for voting GOP in the 2018 midterm elections — now this celebrity is snapping back at that.
Some Democrats set out to blame white women for voting for the Republican Party, causing losses for the Democrat Party.
One of the many to point fingers was the Women’s March.
“There needs to be accountability and an honest reckoning,” Women’s March wrote on Twitter. “There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing.”
Their post included a tweet from Above the Law editor Elie Mystal, who complained that “white women gonna white” and posted statistics on the percentage of white women Americans that voted for Republican Brian Kemp, Republican Ron DeSantis, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), versus the percentages of black women American voters for their opponents.
White women gonna white.

In those races mentioned:
Cruz defeated his Democrat opponent Beto O’Rourke
Kemp currently leads in the Georgia Governor race against Democrat Stacey Abrams — who refuses to concede
DeSantis is currently ahead in the Florida Governor race by 0.4 percent against Democrat Andrew Gillum, with a possible recount
The actress fires back
Patricia Heaton, known for her role as Frankie on “The Middle,” snapped back at the Women’s March statement.
“I know this is hard for you to grasp, but women of all kinds who are pro-science and anti-violence don’t believe that ending the life of your developing son or daughter in your womb is liberating or progressive,” Heaton responded to Women’s March. “It’s tyrannical and barbaric.”
The actress’ remark about ending the life of a child comes from the group’s principles for reproductive rights:
“We believe in Reproductive Freedom. We do not accept any federal, state or local rollbacks, cuts or restrictions on our ability to access quality reproductive healthcare services, birth control, HIV/AIDS care and prevention, or medically accurate sexuality education. This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education.”
The Women’s March recently found themselves under the spotlight when they partnered with Ben & Jerry’s, who created a new “Resist” flavor to help support groups “fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda,” despite ties to Louis Farrakhan.
