• Some People Can’t Win with Leftists … As Amy Coney Barrett Reminds Us

    Surge Summary: Supreme Court nominee and constitutional originalist Amy Coney Barrett is coming under fire by at least one radical Leftist for her adoption of two children from Haiti. Not a misprint! Everything about her is a true threat to modern Progressives.

    by Gary Bauer

    I joined about 200 conservative and faith leaders in the Rose Garden for President Trump’s nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Barrett’s nomination is the culmination of decades of hard work and prayer for me personally, going back to the confirmation of my good friend Justice Clarence Thomas, and for many other conservatives.  We are now on the cusp of finally achieving a conservative majority on the Supreme Court.

    I know why the left hates Barrett so much.  She is a living testament to our values.  She and her husband have five biological children, one with Down syndrome.  She also has two adopted children from Haiti.  I’m not sure even she understands how threatening that is to the left’s narrative of who Christians and conservatives are.

    Her remarks were very respectful of the late Justice Ginsburg, but Barrett made it clear her model is the late Justice Antonin Scalia for whom she clerked.  I’m sure Barrett was trying to be inclusive when she said, “I love the United States and I love the United States Constitution.”  But her sentiment is another reason why the left hates her.

    Believe it or not, Barrett is now being attacked by the left for her adoption of two black children from Haiti.  Ibram Kendi, director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, compared Barrett to a “white colonizer.”  Barrett loves America, but Kendi leads an entire department at Boston University that believes America is racist and evil.

    I believe the left’s tactics will fail, but I am under no illusions about just how brutal this upcoming battle will be.  For example, it is clear that one of the main thrusts of the left’s attack will be tying Barrett’s nomination to healthcare.

    They are claiming that President Trump and Republicans, during a pandemic, want to rip away the healthcare millions have received under Obamacare.  They argue that many Americans will end up with long-term effects from COVID-19, which will become pre-existing conditions, thereby denying them coverage in the future.

    This is fearmongering, but every liberal in the media was repeating this lie non-stop all weekend.

    Let me close this message by returning to the theme of the weekend:  Please pray for Judge Barrett and her family.  Pray for the senators who will soon conduct her confirmation hearing and vote on her nomination to the Supreme Court.

    And pray for an end to the coronavirus and healing for the racial and political divisions that are causing so much unrest in our nation.
