Lib Writer Goes Viral After Accidentally Tweeting Real Opinion on Race Deletes Tweet

It seems that many liberals and progressive leftists routinely engage in what is known as projection, or accusing their ideological opponents of doing the very thing that they are guilty of themselves.

A prime example of such projection was recently displayed on social media by a writer for the left-leaning media outlet Salon named Mary Beth Williams in a revealing tweet on race that has since been deleted, according to the Independent Journal Review.

On Saturday, Williams tweeted, “I wonder if the GOP has asked itself who will clean their toilets & nanny their children & drive their limos when we’re all dead & deported.”

Needless to say, social media did not take too kindly to the thinly disguised racism evident in Williams’ presumptive tweet, as was noted by the tweet-trackers at Twitchy.

More than a few people responded to the tweet by calling out the implicit racist assumption that immigrants are only good for doing menial labor and similar low-skilled jobs, an assumption that is actually held by some rather prominent members of the left, including a former president.

Mediaite noted that it was former President Barack Obama in 2016, speaking in response to then-candidate Donald Trump, who stated that illegal immigrants are necessary to “pick our fruit or make our beds.”

Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa proclaimed in 2015 of illegal immigrants, “We clean your toilets. We clean your hotels. We build your houses,” while ultra-privileged TV star Kelly Osbourne asked, “If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?”

The tweet was indeed quite ignorant and racist, and more than a little revealing of the progressive thought regarding not just immigrants, but minorities also and most non-elitist people in general.

In short, this tweet was little more than blunt evidence of the left’s “soft bigotry of low expectations.”
