As Twitchy reported, the Washington Post on Tuesday published a piece by Marissa Brostoff trying to tie the American pro-life movement to white supremacy. As part of her piece, Brostoff took a quote by “Hillbilly Elegy” author J.D. Vance out on context and then used insinuation to smear him as a white supremacist.

Brostoff alleged that when Vance said to an audience, “Our people aren’t having enough children to replace themselves” he was obviously talking about whites: “Vance did not spell out exactly who was included in the word ‘our.’ He didn’t need to.”

He didn’t need to? That’s quite a leap. As Jeryl Bier pointed out, taking Vance’s quote in context made it very clear who he was talking about: the nation. “The most important way to measure a healthy society,” Vance said, “is by whether a nation is having enough children to replace itself. Do people look to the future and see a place worth living in?” There’s nothing about race in there.

Amanda Marcotte took the “He didn’t need to” insinuation and made it about white supremacists believing women should be forced to breed to keep the race in the majority. And now The Bulwark’s Molly Jong-Fast has taken the same insinuation and reached a similar conclusion:

Guess what: As a journalist, you do need to. You need to stick to the facts. You need to quote people in context. You need not to libel people. But at least she triggered all the usual suspects.

She has us blocked too.

And there it is … forced pregnancy, again.

Good of her to admit she hasn’t read the book.

Millennials aren’t reproducing in general — look at “Birth Strike” and the women who are too afraid of climate change to have kids.

Well, we know people have read 1985’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” or more likely watched the Hulu miniseries.

Once again, for those who missed it:
