The super-woke, holier-than-thou, politically correct left strikes again. The ACLU is getting praised and dragged all over social media for posting a quotation from the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg but scrubbing her original verbiage of any reference to women. See how silly it is to pretend women aren’t women?
Or that most people, like 99.99999%, of people who get pregnant and have babies, are women? I mean, come on, Democrats. It is just getting ridiculous.
We all know you love to take a problem that exists in the ultra margins, like the 99.99% survival rate of a coronavirus infection for a young to middle-aged adult in the U.S., and treat it like it’s a bell curve distribution problem with a normal distribution.
So that all 99.99% of us have to go running around for years, in your demented perfect utopian world, like chickens with our heads cut off, and deal with all kinds of artificial barriers and challenges that you’ve created, and miss out on all kinds of opportunities and just plain normalcy and sanity and good societal mental health on top of it all, over the 0.0007% or whatever of the population which was already going to die within a year from whatever subsequent infection they caught no matter what anyway.
But do we have to also, in any mention of pregnancy, have also to make sure our every spoken word bends to accommodate with an acknowledgment, the existence of a highly exceptional minority of cases to a norm that is, described as a percentage, several, several, several nines past the decimal point to the right?
The American Civil Liberties Union, which used to be all about free speech, is now censoring a dead U.S. Supreme Court justice’s words because they do not conform to the novel, radical, and arbitrary taboos of the thought police, whatever the hell political correctness is. Their cleaned version is:
“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a person’s life, to their well-being and dignity. When the Government controls that decision for people, they are being treated as less than a fully adult human responsible for their own choices.”
If Darth Vader Ginsburg isn’t politically correct enough for the New Left, who can stand under such harsh judgment? When the Democrats raise their Notorious RBG hologram for the 2024 DNC, they can even put words in their mouth to rewrite history so the people’s revolution can be complete.
