In an interview with Katie Couric, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg levels a remarkable charge against the conservatives on the court. She thinks that they think with their penises.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, fresh off a bruising loss in the Hobby Lobby birth control case last month, told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric in an exclusive interview that she believes the male Supreme Court justices who voted against her have a “blind spot” when it comes to women.
“Do you believe that the five male justices truly understood the ramifications of their decision?” Couric asked Ginsburg of the 5-4 Hobby Lobby ruling, which cleared the way for employers to deny insurance coverage of contraceptives to female workers on religious grounds.
“I would have to say no,” the 81-year-old justice replied. Asked if the five justices revealed a “blind spot” in their decision, Ginsburg said yes.
There’s a blind spot here alright. But it’s not on the court’s Hobby Lobby majority.
Couric’s bias here is so obvious that it hardly merits a fisking. The question that Couric — allegedly a non-partisan journalist, but in fact a leftwing hack — asks about the “ramifications of [the majority’s] decision” never allows religious freedom and private property rights to intrude. It never even allows that there are women in the Hobby Lobby-owning Green family. In fact it never even allows for the possibility of any woman, anywhere, agreeing with the Supreme Court’s decision. Even though millions of women do agree with it.
As guilty of bias as Couric is, Ginsburg’s guilt is worse. The justice fails to allow for any possibility that does not comport with the left’s most dishonest take on the Hobby Lobby case. Ginsburg cannot conceive that the 5 justices who ruled that the government does not have the right to force business owners to pay for abortion-causing drugs came to that conclusion not because they’re stupid men ruled by testosterone, but because they recognize limits on government power and because they recognize that Americans do not surrender the religious and private property rights just because they own a successful business. Ginsburg reveals here, again, that she is a menace to individual rights and freedoms and fundamentally disregards the plain text of the Constitution that she is charged with upholding. Ginsburg is unfit for the court, frankly, and should never have been confirmed to it.
Just imagine, though, if Justice Scalia had come out and said that Ginsburg voted the way she voted — on any case — because she has a female “blind spot.” Can you imagine the firestorm that would ensue?
The left would demonize him even more than they already do. They would call for his resignation, impeachment, plus tar and feathers just for fun. There would be Code Pink activists wearing garish lady part costumes in every city.
Ginsburg gets away with lobbing a blatantly sexist smear at her fellow justices. Because she is a leftist woman, and because Katie Couric is one of the worst working journalists in America today.
