It’s Women’s History Month, and on Feb. 28, President Joe Biden marked the occasion with a proclamation – even though liberals cannot or will not define what a woman actually is.
“This Women’s History Month,” Biden said in his proclamation, “as we reflect on the achievements of women and girls across the centuries and pay tribute to the pioneers who paved the way, let us recommit to the fight and help realize the deeply American vision of a more equal society where every person has a shot at pursuing the American dream.”
But according to the conservative Media Research Center, Biden’s lofty words are utterly meaningless.
The group notes that, as ABC sees it, not all women are created equal, and only some deserve a “tribute” to their achievements.
And no, for once, this is not about University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas.
Rather, it involves a sitcom.
As the MRC noted, the ABC show “Home Economics” this week “celebrated women on the Supreme Court this week with a musical number.”
The plot entailed Tom and Sarah Hayworth, who are brother and sister, crafting a musical for an upscale private elementary school in California that employs Sarah as a counselor.
The musical is called “Unsung Sheroes: A Celebration of Groundbreaking Women from Sacagawea to Sotomayor.” As the show ends, Tom and Sarah give their relatives a sneak peek at a song they wrote about the Supreme Court.
As it happens, among their cousins, three elementary-school-age girls are available to perform the song, and do so as Supreme Court justices.
“That would normally be a perfect number because there are currently three female justices on the U.S. Supreme Court – Elena Kagan, Sonya Sotomayor, and Amy Coney Barrett,” the MRC noted.
“But that is not how the scene plays out.”
As the girls are introduced, the little boy acting as emcee introduces them as Kagan, Sotomayor and “the one, the only, notorious RBG!” That referred to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died in 2020.
Current Justice Barrett, a conservative appointed by former President Donald Trump as RBG’s successor, is ignored.
Also bypassed is former Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who was the first woman appointed to the Supreme Court. O’Connor, who is now 92, was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
When she announced her retirement in 2005, then-Sen. Joe Biden said, “Though I have not always agreed with her, I have always held Justice O’Connor in the highest regard. A pioneer lawyer who has set a brilliant example for women in all aspects of professional life, she is admired by all who come before her and serve with her. We will all miss her presence on the bench.”
Back to ABC, the MRC noted, “Considering that the song is introduced with, ‘Straight from the Capitol’ wouldn’t announcing Amy Coney Barrett make more sense than the ‘notorious RBG’? After all, Ginsburg has been dead since 2020. Is her ghost arriving from the Capitol?”
“Two women who rose to the role of U.S. Supreme Court Justice — Amy Coney Barrett and Sandra Day O’Connor — go completely unmentioned in the introduction. Both were nominated by Republican presidents,” the MRC continued.
“For radically left Hollywood, only left-wing Democratic women exist or matter in history. The accomplishments of conservative or Republican women are simply erased.”
