Midnight Meme Of The Day!



by Noah

The Trump/McConnell farcical Supreme Court confirmation hearings will officially begin on 10/12 but Amy Coney Barrett is already sitting in a stolen seat. Here's how that came about: In May 2017, Donnie Dictator nominated Barrett to a seat on the Seventh Circuit Court, the court which covers Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. This is the same seat to which President Obama nominated an African-American judge named Myra Selby in 2016. But, of course, the Republican-controlled $enate was never going to confirm a Black female nominee who was nominated by a Black president. That was a bridge way, way, way too far for any republican to go. They'd rather fantasize about blowing up the bridge and lynching the nominee. So, they blocked Judge Myra Selby and kept the seat warm for their Dear Leader who then nominated Crackpot Amy Coney Barrett. Trump ended up appointing 4 count 'em 4 white judges to the Seventh Circuit, including Barrett and the Seventh Circuit became as white as snow, just the way republicans like it, very 1850.

It's not just Amy Coney Barrett's skin tone that is crucial to republicans. She opposes same sex marriage and is supported by and has taken money from a group that is seeking to criminalize homosexuality. She is anti-choice. She is reportedly even anti-contraceptives. She is so far right that she once excoriated arch-consevative Chief Justice John Roberts for not making Obamacare illegal and taking away healthcare from over 25,000,000 of her fellow Americans. Like an al Qaeda or Taliban terrorist, she has embraced a religious sect (People of Praise) that believes a woman should be subservient to men and at least believe figuratively that her place is the laundry room, the kitchen, and the bedroom, except herself, of course. Her statements on guns reveal that she has no problem with white supremacist groups getting more and bigger weaponry, even though she has two young adopted Haitian children. That might lead to some interesting dinner table conversations in a few years. On voting issues, she also falls on the racist side. In other words, except for the kids, you can picture Donald Trump himself in a black robe, sitting on the Supreme Court. Amy Comey Barrett's positions demonstrate that she is every bit the crackpot psychopath that he is. She is the Republican Party's dream nominee. She is another Republican merchant of human misery and death, one of the most blatant and extremist of all.

Amy Coney Barrett obviously checked all the loyalty oath boxes in her extensive White House interviews with Herr Trump and his nutbag staffers. The biggest one isn't mentioned above but it's mentioned in the meme itself. For Trump, the biggest attribute she has is that she will rule in his favor when he brings the election itself to the court in an effort to remain in power. She is severely tainted just by being Trump's choice. Everything about her indicates that she will rule in favor of a 3rd World-style coup if the opportunity presents itself. She is the physical embodiment of what so many Amercans died to prevent in a long string of wars.

Speaking of ruling on election matters, you want irony? Here's some irony: Amy Coney Barrett worked for James Baker's law firm. They represented George Bush during the Bush vs. Gore election case. That's just the kind of experience Donnie Dictator is looking for.

People like Ruth Bader Ginsburg worked hard to open doors for other women. This Amy Coney Barrett wants to sit smugly on the bench and close those doors behind her. I've always called that The Queen Bee Syndrome. I've seen it in the corporate world. It's a form of "I've got mine, Jack (or, in this case, Jill) so screw you. I can oppress a woman as much as any man."

I wonder if she likes beer.

Part of RGB's legacy will include staying on the bench too long in the face of SCrOTUS being converted into an American Volksgerichtshof.

Look it up yourself.

12:50, You may have issues with RBG but as far as I can tell, the post is about Amy Barrett's legacy not hers.

And just WHOSE seat is Barrett occupying???

We would not have to endure having to even know who Barett is if RBG had heeded the obamanation like the marginally-better Democratic candidates did to make way for Biden - who will only leave the nation open for a better Nazi to come along and take HIS seat.

6:33's point is well taken. We all know whose seat Barrett is primed to take and we all know RBG could have retired earlier and maybe should have, but who's to say that if RBG retired earlier and Obama nominated someone to take her place that the Senate would have even held confirmation hearings? That is not what the post was about. It was about who Barrett is and her legacy, not Ginsburg's. RBG stayed and did good work. If she had left, her vote wouldn't have been there.
