To honor only the fifth time in American history that a woman was named to the Supreme Court, the Girl Scouts of the USA put out the nice little tweet above. Showing the five women (on a green background that makes me think of Thin Mints), it is a nice reminder to their girls that they can do great things when they grow up.
Then reality struck. OK, not reality but a Leftist Twitter mob. Amy Coney Barrett is a conservative, thus less female than the other four. This cannot stand, so the Girl Scouts deleted the tweet. The reason they gave for un-congratulating the new justice is that they did want to be political.
The problem is, the original tweet was neither political nor partisan. Pulling down that tweet, however, was extremely political. Girl Scouts made a political statement. They picked a team. The thing is, the team they picked, the hard Left, cannot really define what is or is not a girl. So, while there may have only been five biologically female justices, do we really know how many female justices there were in total?Published in
