Posted on 10/28/2020 11:31:52 PM PDT by billorites
The Girl Scouts of America on Wednesday congratulated Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett on her appointment, but deleted the social media posts after sweeping criticism.
The Scouts Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts featured an image of Barrett and the first four women justices to serve on the nations highest court.
That includes Sandra Day OConnor, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose death last month paved the way for President Donald Trump to nominate Barrett.
Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789, the group tweeted around 1 p.m. ET, screenshots of the tweet show.
The Scouts then clarified that the group is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization.
We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women. If you would like to debate partisan policekeep scrolling, the Girl Scouts posted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
The post sparked immediate criticism on social media of both the Girl Scouts and Barrett, who many liberals consider a threat to abortion rights, Obamacare and other progressive matters because of her religious conservative and religious viewpoint.
The Group deleted the posts from all of its social media sites Wednesday evening.
Twitter users continued to slam the Girl Scouts from both sides, for both the original post and relenting to the criticism.
Of course the @girlscouts caved to the mob and deleted this tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barrett. SAD, The Independent Womens Forum tweeted from its official account.
Just after 7:30 p.m. ET, the Girl Scouts posted again, saying that the post was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post.

And with their tails tucked between their legs,they showed girls what cowardice looks like.....
Out of 10K Girl Scout mothers, this might make 10 mommies stop and think. “Wait a minute! Why shouldn’t we be proud of our new Lady Supreme? This is going too far!”
Not buying another gd Girl Scout cookie ever again.

Yeah? Well our side considers it extremely partisan that you removed it- caving into the screaming left per usual- but i guess only liberal feelings on issues matter huh GirlScouts? You don’t give a crap that you offended conservative parents do you?
Sad commentary on the double standard in effect in the culture. If a Democrat president picked a female justice, and the Girl Scouts posted a bland congratulatory message and highlighted previous women justices appointed by presidents of both parties, would conservatives have cried foul? I seriously doubt it. And if they had, there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that the Scouts would have caved. But we’re living in a culture now where a vocal leftist minority vigorously disputes the legitimacy of any sort of victory or accomplishment by anyone on the right. ACB can be neither congratulated nor accepted due to the fact that she’s a conservative and a Trump appointee. We’re the designated losers, the Washington Generals to their Globetrotters. Only our losses and failures are acceptable to them.
And even if they disagree with ACB’s PERSONAL views,
1. She is brilliant - a marvelous example to girls everywhere
2. She got to where she is by brilliance and hard work, not by “marrying up”
3. She has clearly stated that she will not and does not and has not let her personal views affect her judicial decisions.
This lady is an example for girls everywhere.
Feminists aren’t about women; they’re about leftism.
Every year the one Girl Scout in my cul de sac comes by and I feel obligated to buy her gd cookies. Not any more
Why do people cave to these fascists? Time to get some steel balls girls and ladies and fight back the evil, controlling, bullies, and totalitarian police. Or you will be living under their boots for the rest of your life until it turns bloody.
Marxist predators in the scouts
No more Girl Scouts support in any way. Spineless in the best of light and in the worse liberal bent overs. Neither are to be admired.
Oh no, the Girl Scouts did something wholesome.
Can’t have that!!!!
I sure hope the Left got in their faces and showed them what
happens when a girl is able to get an education, have a
family and a great career.
Leftist girls aren’t encouraged to do the right things.
And these pieces of garbage wonder why a guy like Pinochet gets fed up with this shit and starts chucking them out of helicopters.
I haven’t a clue who’s leading the Girl Scouts anymore but I’d have a guess likely some leftist feminist.
Looks like she should forget about identity politics and concentrate on a diet.
Girl Scout cookies taste like cardboard. But I have always bought them. My girls are adults now. I feel liberated just to walk past those tables. Another reason for girls to join the Boy Scouts.
Stop giving in to the loud mouths!!!
