1. One group is celebrated, one group gets death threats.

K&R.

3. +1

But they're not just white. They're also centrists with national security backgrounds

5. I get that

and it was my first thought when I saw it. Several congresspersons who are POC have been advocating for it for quite some time, but somehow the centrist white women are the heroic ones. WTF?

6. It is not as simple as you make it out to be.

People like Al Green that have been saying impeach wanted the orange ape brought up on any charge that might stick. That could have been disastrous for democrats.

7. Perhaps because the women shown have national security backgrounds.

While the women in the Congress do not.

This does not seem like a racial issue to me. However, I could be missing something.

8. Yeah, some of the last ones to get the courage to come out for impeachment and they get praised.

10. It's not about "praise"

Itís about drawing the attention of moderate republicans. Do you really not get the goal here???

11. Do you not get the premise of the OP? They're the last to have courage to come out while the many

POCs who came out long ago for impeachment get no acknowledgement. And we long ago should've given up trying to sway repugs. That train left the station many presidential cycles ago.

9. These women are centrists who are all veterans or former national security...

The whole point of this is a shout out to centrists of both parties, oh hey look itís not just the Uber liberal anymore- these moderates with lifetime backgrounds in national service have sounded the alarm.

Like it or not, a moderated voice reaches far further than a liberals when youíre trying to get both the right and left to listen.

13. Seems to me that, if you're a POC and make a fuss over the obvious, you're labelled "radical"

It takes white centrists to "normalize" the situation.
