CALLED OUT: ‘You’ve Never Been Black…’ Says A Republican Congressional Candidate To Current U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell

Last week’s extraordinary leak of a Supreme Court order purporting to reverse the landmark Roe v. Wade decision sparked a heated Twitter debate between a black Texas Republican congressional candidate and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).

Swalwell said on Twitter that in the wake of a leaked Supreme Court rule overturning the historic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, Republican-controlled states would attempt to outlaw interracial marriages. “The Republicans aren’t going to stop at prohibiting abortion. They want interracial marriage outlawed. Would you like to save it? Swalwell tweeted, “Well, then, you should probably vote.”

“Hello Eric, “My name is Wesley Hunt, and I’m a Republican nominee in a 70 percent white congressional district,” the Texas candidate said on Twitter. “I’m black, married to a woman of color, and we have two multiracial kids.” Republicans are praising diversity, while white liberals like you are stoking racial tensions.” “Hey, Wesley, it’s not my issue.”

It’s with @SenatorBraun, who believes states should have the authority to prohibit interracial marriages like yours. He’s a senator from YOUR political party. You appear to be yet another Republican who denies what your colleagues say. “Do you choose to party over country?” Swalwell answered by pointing toward Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind.).

“Here we go again, Eric.” Hunt, a US Army veteran and West Point graduate, said, “My problem is with you.” “Despite the fact that you’ve never been black, the white ‘intellectual’ Democrat from California is lecturing me about racism.” For the record, don’t lecture me on the importance of nation above party; I served in the war, didn’t you?” he said.

The judgment expressly addresses abortion in the leaked judgment, which was authored in February by Justice Samuel Alito and is not yet public. Furthermore, the judgment does not prohibit the operation, but rather leaves it to the states to decide.

Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida, a black Republican, also slammed Swalwell. “You’re such an idiot.” What’s the matter with you? More radical left gaslighting!!” he commented on Twitter. Justice Samuel Alito wrote the majority opinion, which was leaked to Politico.

“The draft opinion is a full-throated, unabashed denunciation of the 1973 judgment guaranteeing federal constitutional protections for abortion rights, as well as a subsequent 1992 case – Planned Parenthood v. Casey – that substantially upheld the right,” Politico said.

“Roe was egregiously incorrect from the outset,” Alito writes in his draft. As a result, we believe the Constitution does not grant a right to abortion. Roe v. Wade and Casey v. Casey must be overturned, and the power to control abortion must be given to the people and their elected officials.” The top court is expected to issue its decision in June, when the current session concludes. At this moment, it’s unclear if any of the five judges — Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett — will change their minds.

The paper, classified as an initial draft of the majority opinion, is marked as having been exchanged among the justices on February 10. If the Alito draft is approved, it will decide in Mississippi’s favor in a widely watched case involving the state’s attempt to prohibit most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Roberts verified the validity of the draft opinion on Tuesday, after this item was published, and said he was ordering a probe into the publication. “To the extent that this violation of the Court’s confidences was meant to undermine our operations’ integrity, it will fail. “The Court’s work will not be harmed in any manner,” Roberts promised in a statement.

“This was a one-of-a-kind and egregious breach of trust that is an insult to the Court and the community of public employees who work here.” The draft opinion “does not constitute a decision by the Court or the final view of any member on the issues in the case,” according to Roberts.

Prior to publication, a court representative declined to comment. Liberal justices are expected to disagree with Alito’s argument in the draft opinion that overturning Roe would not threaten other privacy-related rights established by the courts, such as the right to contraception, private consenting sexual behavior, and marriage to someone of the same sex.

“We underscore that our opinion pertains only to the constitutional right to abortion,” Alito writes. “Nothing in this decision could be interpreted as casting doubt on precedents not related to abortion.” The concept that abortion laws reflect women’s servitude in American culture is refuted in Alito’s draft judgment. He argues, “Women do not lack electoral or political power.” “Women are continuously more likely than males to register to vote and vote.”

The Supreme Court is one of Washington’s most secretive institutions, emphasizing the importance of keeping its interior discussions private. “Those who know don’t talk at the Supreme Court, and those who talk don’t know,” Ginsburg used to remark. A succession of publications by legal clerks, law professors, and investigative journalists have helped to demolish that tight-lipped reputation in recent decades.

Although some of these writers had access to draft rulings like the one obtained by POLITICO, their books came out after the cases were settled. On Wednesday, the justices heard their concluding arguments of the current term. The court has scheduled a series of sessions over the next two months to issue verdicts in its pending cases.
