After Justice Amy Coney Barrett became just the fifth woman ever to be appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States, the Girl Scouts of America congratulated her. Barrett joined a list that includes Sandra Day O’Connor, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Keegan.
“Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789,” the Girls Scouts of America, a group focused on empowering and enabling young women across America posted on their Twitter page.
The left was promptly triggered.
Democrat U.S. congressional candidate Ayanna Pressley even joined in, asking, “What kind of patch does one earn for uplifting a woman who is the antithesis of justice?”
As the backlash grew, the Girls Scouts tried some quick damage control, “Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.”
It wasn’t enough as the defamation, threats, and assaults continued.
Eventually, the organization gave in to the left and cancel culture, removing the tweet.
“Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post,” the Girl Scouts posted.
And then it happened…the organization began being assaulted by the right for caving to the threats and harassment it received from the left.
“This is pathetic @girlscouts. It’s not “partisan” to generically congratulate the 5th woman ever to join the High Court. It’s patriotic. Taking your tweet down *is* partisan, however, and a real disappointment,” said former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
“I thought the Girl Scouts was about female empowerment? Y’all lost your way a long time ago but this is a new low. Wow,” said Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich.
