NARAL, a pro-abortion group, wants Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) head now because 1) she gave the ‘appearance of credibility’ to the hearings on Amy Coney Barrett and 2) she hugged Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Shocking in its civility. (The Washington Examiner) They have rescinded their support for the Democrat Senator.
“This has been one of the best Senate hearings that I’ve participated in, and I want to thank you for your fairness and the opportunity of going back and forth.” Senator Dianne Feinstein
Cue the leftist outrage. If you’re not shouting at the top of your lungs that seating a Supreme Court justice before an election is ‘criminal’ then you’re out, out, out! Feinstein was caught on a hot mic earlier in the week mentioning something about ACB’s religion, which is unconstitutional in and of itself. Religion cannot be used as a litmus test for anyone.
But that didn’t matter to the NARAL pro-abortion group, they’re after Dianne’s head now and no longer support her.
“This nomination is illegitimate and this process is a sham. Tens of millions of Americans have already voted and majorities have said unequivocally that they want to choose the next President who should fill this seat. Amy Barrett and this power grab pose a grave threat to every freedom and right we hold dear and tears the very fabric of our democracy…Americans — whose lives hang in the balance — deserve leadership that underscores how unprecedented, shameful and wrong this process is. The Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein, failed to make this clear and in fact offered an appearance of credibility to the proceedings that is wildly out of step with the American people.” Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL
Newsflash to Hogue, there are a lot of us in America who do NOT want to wait for the ‘next president.’ It’s not shameful, nor ‘unprecedented.’ Either Hogue is totally ignorant of the 29 times it has happened before in American history, or she is deliberately attempting to obfuscate the issue. This confirmation hearing was most certainly not “wildly out of step with the American people.” She’s obviously so deluded that she thinks all of them are the entire population of the nation.
Senator Feinstein may hate the First Amendment and the Second, but revealing a tiny touch of civility in the hearing process was a shocker. It was a welcome respite for just that few seconds from the nasty vitriol shown by leftists like Senators Hirono and Harris.
Amy Coney Barrett will likely be confirmed, if the votes remain set by next Thursday. And the pro-abortion group NARAL can fall into full meltdown.
