Because Everything is Political

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.

    If they called it censorship people would object. Calling it political correctness allows any bigotry to be misrepresented as virtuous.

  3. Excellent words about one more example of the left’s control freak, cancel out, shut down mentality— I won’t be able to eat a thin mint without a sense of disappointment— this coming from a brownie, Girl Scout and cadet 🙄

    It’s so sad that the Girl Scouts have been highjacked by the insane radical left. I think people need to see this intolerant cancel culture for what it is and stand up to it. That’s why I was so glad Trump got rid of CRT in federal places. That’s an evil racist theory that shouldn’t see the light of day, the very opposite of tolerance or racial justice.

    Where are the men and women who stand up against the poisonous rants of stupidity?

    Oh look, there’s one. Justice Barrett who singlehandedly dismantled every leftist thug at her hearing.

    A wonder of wonders was she, and people who are itches with a b
    were shown to be intellectual dunces, with apologies to good dwarfs everywhere.

  6. There will be contentious Supreme Court cases in America’s future where Justice Barrett won’t vote the way partisan conservative cheerleaders wish she would vote. But assuming her vote has some grounding in Constitutional logic, I will try to objectively praise her anyway — because she will have done what she promised to do in her confirmation hearings. That is to NOT rule by the “Law of Amy”, but by the “Law of the Land”, which is the U.S. Constitution. Remaining calm and principled in those future cases is how we conservatives can prove we’re not hypocrites, and can accept when sometimes originalism denies conservatives something we would have “liked” to go our way, but don’t fully deserve to have decided by an impartial Supreme Court. If we want the Supreme Court to get away from politics and let the Legislative branch do its own lawmaking, then we have to not politicize the SCOTUS ourselves.

    This sort of whining by the Left is basically telling the world that they cannot control their emotions.

  9. Well said, Tricia! The hysteria is just out of control. If you genuinely want to empower girls, teach them how to stand up against foolishness and other people’s projections.

    Leftist feminism is also a total train wreck, all attacking successful and talented women. I read something the other day that really got me all riled up, about how Melania Trump would never accomplish anything since she was so uneducated. Made my blood boil! So she’s gorgeous, a supermodel, well off, and now America’s Frist lady, but they seem to believe she has no worth and value and will never amount to anything. Arrggg. Of course, conversely we have a mom who went to law school, worked her way up to judge and now a justice in the Supreme Court, and she is also being mocked by the mockers.

      “If you genuinely want to empower girls, teach them how to stand up against foolishness and other people’s projections.“. What you say is exactly correct! I am SO over people saying they are for women or whatever and then their actions being direct against. Symbolism over substance and it is the theme of our day unfortunately. Hypocrisy I guess is the better word here.

    I ran across this by ‘Mommy Underground’. It encapsulates ACB and the denigration the Left is trying to do her as well as anything I’ve read recently. It postulates that the Left fears her much more for her life accomplishments than for the fact that she’s now part of the SCOTUS
