In their newest take on the pro-life movement, The Huffington Post decided to take aim at potential SCOTUS nominee Amy Coney Barrett, claiming:
If Trump nominates Barrett, the pink cloud of faux feminism will descend yet again.
Courtney Enlow, the associate editor for SYFY FANGRRLS and author of this incredibly empowering (sarcasm) feminist article, claimed, “Trump is probably going to pick a woman to undo one of feminism’s most important victories and demand that women support her.”
Enlow quoted Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-Calif.) statements during Barrett’s 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals confirmation hearing, when she now famously claimed, "The dogma lives loudly within you.” The statement extremely controversial and bordered on pushing a religious test on the judge.
Enlow then goes to mention Barrett’s “alignment with extreme, anti-choice organizations” such as People of Praise which aims to “seek to participate in the mission of the church in our time and to live our lives communally until the day when Jesus will be all in all.” Very scary!
Enlow thinks “Barrett’s gender is the very reason he [Trump] prefers her,” because “if someone is going to bring down women’s health care, it should probably be a woman.”
Surely that is definitely the only reason to nominate her. It’s not like she is insurmountably qualified or anything. It’s not like she has experience in a federal court, was a professor of law at Notre Dame Law School, and would have decades on the bench or anything.
Enlow then co-opts Madeline Albright’s quote, purporting there's “a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other" and suggesting women who prevent preborn babies from being killed are fighting against the “sisterhood in the support of gender equality.”
"If these women truly supported women, they wouldn’t be so hellbent on destroying reproductive rights," she claims.
Not only is attacking Amy Coney Barrett on her agenda, but she also thought she would try and discredit Gina Haspel as Trump’s new head of the CIA despite her 30+ years of experience within the intelligence community.
Apparently, Courtney Enlow and the Huffington Post don’t believe that empowered women empower women.
