Abrams Describes DEI Critics As Enemies Of Democracy

While leftists have spent more than three years attacking former President Donald Trump and his supporters as “election deniers” due to their misgivings about the results of the 2020 election, Democrats like Stacey Abrams are often praised by the same pundits for their claims that elections they lost were stolen.

After unsuccessfully campaigning in two consecutive election cycles to become the governor of Georgia, Abrams still has a position of prominence within the Democratic Party and used her platform most recently to tout the supposed benefits of controversial diversity, equity and inclusion policies implemented in public and private institutions across the U.S.

She appeared on MSNBC for an interview with Al Sharpton during which she decried the supposed threat posed by DEI critics who want to repeal policies they say essentially amount to reverse discrimination.

“We should be terrified of the person who wants to come back into the White House, strip us of our rights, rescind the economic progress we have made and undermine the democracy that we hold so dear,” Abrams said in an apparent reference to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. “We have to remember that built into every victory are the seeds of defeat and built into every defeat are the seeds of victory. We have seen victory, but we cannot rest on that victory and think that it is impermeable and impervious to harm.”

She went on to decry the “attack on diversity, equity and inclusion” as an attack on “democracy,” “education” and “how our economy works.”

The appropriate response, she argued, involves continual vigilance on the part of pro-DEI crusaders like herself.

“We have to recognize that our opportunity to hold to those successes requires our constant attention and constant attending,” Abrams insisted. “You know, voting is not magic, voting is medicine. But it also means that it is a constant engagement and we cannot have a moment of success; we have to keep working constantly at moving ourselves forward.”

In the final months of his term in office, Trump issued an executive order prohibiting some of the core components of DEI ideology.

It stated, in part: “Instructors and materials teaching that men and members of certain races, as well as our most venerable institutions, are inherently sexist and racist are appearing in workplace diversity trainings across the country, even in components of the Federal Government among Federal contractors.”
