On Wednesday, Girl Scouts of America deleted a congratulatory Twitter post for Amy Coney Barrett after receiving some criticism from the left.
Amy was just confirmed earlier this week as the ninth justice to the Supreme Court, making her the fifth woman to be appointed to the court. An honor once celebrated is now seen as disappointing from the left.
Just like clockwork, stark criticism erupted, and the Girl Scouts came under fire for notably honoring a woman that doesn’t appease the minds of liberal elites. Showing time and time again that the Democratic party does not support all women, rather only the ones that fit their mold on social justice issues.
In a statement following the deleted post, The Girl Scouts explained their post was viewed as political instead of celebratory.
Congratulating someone for being sworn into an honorable position should not be considered political but rather patriotic.
Praising a woman who earned law school’s highest honor as the number one student in her class and was a successful federal judge while raising a family of seven, in my eyes, falls under the label of uplifting, which is what Girl Scout’s preach. Amy Coney Barrett is an inspiring role model for young women. Choosing to ignore said achievements to support a particular group of people seems more political than the actual post.
Unfortunately, deleting their post did not allow them to steer clear of the criticism that they were about to receive from those on the right, rightfully so.
Though their excuse was that they didn’t want to be political, that indeed has never stopped them before.
They have not shied away from promoting progressive women but seem to draw the line at supporting a new member of the court.
In March 2019, they tweeted about the other women of the court breaking gender barriers. It seems political statements were not much of a problem for them at that time.
They stated their job is to “uplift girls and women,” though if that were the case, they wouldn’t have catered to the leftist mob and kept their post up honoring and uplifting ACB.
Instead of being an example of honoring all women, they have now taught young women to bow down to social media pressure.
What will be the last straw before people start to find common ground, put aside the partisan battle, and learn to uplift all, regardless of which political party you stand by.
