This perfectly sane and inspiring tweet from The Girl Scouts of America congratulating Amy Coney Barrett on being appointed to the Supreme Court was quickly taken down after hysterical social media screeching from
intolerant, shallow minded boobs the progressive left.
So of course the GSA, an organization whose central focus is to empower young girls through learning good character and leadership skills, fell in line and took the tweet down, offering this explanation:
Political? How could anyone but the most obnoxious, blinkered thinking ideologue think that post was remotely political?
It wasn’t of course, but in today’s Orwellian world, words hold no meaning except to promote the correct political narrative, which in this case is that Amy Coney Barrett is the anthesis of justice a hater of the LGBTQ community and the reason many Girl Scouts won’t have access to healthcare, equal pay or any of the other rights we take for granted.
Sigh, it’s all so exhausting, isn’t it? Not to mention this type of hyperbole is actually the anthesis (to use the word correctly) of women’s empowerment.
Reducing an accomplished mother of 7, a highly credentialed lawyer who has made it to the top justice position in the land down to a negative cartoon character stereotype based on differing political beliefs is ignoring the personhood of Barrett and how she came to those beliefs. It can’t possibly be from a position of good faith and reasoned philosophy, as that would allow her to be human and imply there is room for debate on issues, something the left wants no part of.
This type of world is so stifling, where everyone has to think alike and dissent is not tolerated. I’m not saying we don’t have freedom of expression in America, we most certainly do. This is instant shaming though of those who fall outside of accepted political orthodoxy is troubling, because then people start self censoring themselves just to avoid the hassle.
How refreshing it would have been if instead of caving to the mob, the GSA kept the congratulatory tweet up, explained it wasn’t meant as any sort of statement and that the organization believes in uplifting all women, not just those on one side of the political aisle.
It would have been a great example of how to live out their mission statement that Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
