Oh Tee Hee, Tee Hee indeed

Trump Selects Amy Coney Barrett to Fill Ginsburg’s Seat on the Supreme Court

A Catholic mother of seven. Gonna be tough to find someone she raped.

The argument against will have to be that they don’t like her views – which isn’t really quite the point. Sorry, shouldn’t be, rather than isn’t.

  1. Since the Supreme Court ‘judges’ are actually legislating politicians, it is only proper that they be subject to some sort of democratic selection. I’d have no problems with them having to win the necessary votes in the electoral college, though.

  2. They don’t need to find someone she’s raped – as far as they’re concerned she’s far worse than a rapist. She’s a Catholic mother of seven.

  3. Questions already being asked about the two children she adopted from Haiti.

    Maybe she got a 2-for-1 discount from the Clinton Crime Family’s Child Trafficking division? Seems unlikely though since that was a Baptist front organisation.

    I get the impression from my Twitter feed that the left is desperately trying to figure out the best way to make the argument that:

    1. Inter-racial adoption is evil and therefore she is evil.

    2. Those kids would have been better off in a Haiti orphanage.

    Tough arguments to make, but I’ll sure they’ll get there as their anger rises.

    Anecdote alert, on the issue of inter-racial adoption a friend of Mrs BiND’s sister who was a CofE vicar did adopt a black child. It didn’t work out well.

    It is going to be hard to find someone who can credibly accuse her of sexual assault. I fully recognise she is not 24 any more, but looking at her, if someone complains she tried to drunkenly kiss him at a Frat party back in the 2000s, I am afraid there may be an out break of tittering and perhaps giggles.

    Unless they can find a lesbian to make that claim. But lesbians probably do not accept other lesbians can commit sexual assault.

  7. Presumably the children would have been better off being adopted by a pair of lesbians and allowed to chose their own gender without any prompting from mummy and mummy – perish the thought.

    As it is the poor kids are in danger of being indoctrinated into Christianity. Even worse they may become white.

  8. The lesbians and feminists will drive themselves insane over the number of children she has, and the rest of the Democrats will beclown themselves attacking her transracial adoption, while every advert on TV shows transracial families.

    Popcorn out.

  9. So Much For Subtlety

    Longrider September 26, 2020 at 8:46 am – “Newsweek did publish a slur trying to claim that the Catholic group she belongs to was the basis for Margaret Atwood’s Handmaid’s Tale.”

    Leftist women love dressing up as Handmaids. To protest Trump – who doesn’t belong to Mike Pence’s end of the Republican Party but to Hugh Huffner’s. He is not about to impose Gilead.

    The logical explanation is that they quite fancy being Fred Waterford’s handmaiden.

    I don’t think this is going to hurt her.

    Up until about the late ’60s the Dems were generally anti abortion or at least restricted abortions, and their supporter base was conservative Catholic groups like the Irish and Italians, in the cities. She might have been one of their nominations in that period.

  11. Bearing in mind women live longer than men, on average, and a big part of Supreme Court nominations is trying to find a way to keep your grip on that seat for as long as possible, I find it surprising that women don’t get nominated more often. I wonder whether post-Kavanaugh it’ll become more common to avoid that kind of potential derailment, but the longevity thing is an advantage in itself.

  12. It was a blatant lie and they had to retract the claim, but never mind, the mud has been slung, some of it will stick…

    Indeed. The Daily Mail is still running the story on the front online page today, presented as an exclusive for some reason:

    “The People of Praise religious group inspired the hit TV show The Handmaid’s Tale, which depicts a dystopian world where women are oppressed”

    Amy Coney Barrett with other oppressed women in cult dystopia:

  13. @John
    “Even worse they may become white.”

    Nightmare scenario for the Left, given their upbringing, is they become the next Clarence Thomas.

  14. Jeez, that Mail story is a piece of ordure. For a start, The Hadmaid’s Tale was not inspired by the religious group People of Praise. The Handmaid’s Tail novel was published in ’65. People of Praise was founded in ’71. Attwood’s garbage was probably inspired by various short stories & novels based around similar distopias. And it belongs on the fantasy rather than speculative fiction shelves because it gives no convincing reasons how such a society could come about or would realistically function. Like so many middle-class over educated writers she people’s her novels with people just like her. She attracted interest because she was a woman writing in a field didn’t have many women writers & found popularity with feminists. Contrast with say Ursula K Le Guin writing at much the same time, who’s novels depicting alternative societies have internal consistency & are believable.

  15. Atwood is one of those snobby writers that insist they don’t write science fiction/fantasy, In an essay she once claimed that everything that happens in her novels is possible and may even have already happened, so they can’t be science fiction, which is “fiction in which things happen that are not possible today”

  16. Now watch the Demstream Media rag on Catholics, thereby alienating Hispanics, who are often very Catholic indeed. And the interracial adoption thing, showing themselves up as hypocrites on race. And ragging on her as a mother. They’ll basically be alienating anyone who isn’t already in their tank supping the kool aid.

    Irrespective of her judicial / political views, she’s an excellent pick from a pure politics standpoint.
