What about voting for nominees based on their abilities and qualifications, Senator Duckworth? Can you imagine the backlash from the Left if a Republican Senator said that his or her vote for a nominee would be based solely on race or gender? All heck would break loose.

Hardly needs be said, but imagine furor that would erupt if a US senator vowed to vote against every nominee of color–voting only for white, heterosexual nominees–unless White House satisfied specific demand. https://t.co/mvF9F0bJcY

Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth: I Will Only Vote For Biden Nominees Who Are ‘Racial Minorities,’ ‘LGBTQ’
By Daily Wire, January 12, 2021
Democrat Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL) was slammed on Tuesday for remarks about President Joe Biden’s nominees that were widely panned as racist and bigoted.
“I am a no vote on the floor, on all non diversity nominees,” Duckworth said. “You know, I will vote for racial minorities and I will vote for LGBTQ. But anybody else I’m not voting for.”
The New York Post reported:
Duckworth said she made her decision after White House deputy chief of staff Jennifer O’Malley Dillon made an “incredibly insulting” remark Monday evening after Biden spoke on a webcast with Senate Democrats.
Dillon, Biden’s 2020 campaign manager, allegedly suggested to Duckworth that Asian-Americans should be content with Vice President Kamala Harris’ role. Harris is biracial; her mother was born in India and her father is black and from Jamaica.
“To be told that, ‘Well, you have Kamala Harris, we’re very proud of her, you don’t need anybody else’ is insulting… last night, that was the trigger for me,” Duckworth said. “But multiple times I’ve heard that. And that’s not something you would say to the black caucus, ‘Well, you have Kamala, we’re not going to put any more African-Americans in the cabinet because you have Kamala.’”
