Moments after President Donald Trump announced Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court this Saturday afternoon, the National Republican Senatorial Committee published a tweet promoting a Barrett-themed t-shirt.
The t-shirt contains a photo of Barrett’s face surrounded by the words “Notorious A.C.B.” It’s a remix, if you will, of the nickname often applied to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, aka the Notorious R.B.G, by her groupies.
Look at the shirt below:

Perhaps because of the timing of the tweet — Ginsburg passed just a week ago, and Barrett’s nomination is in fact designed to replace her on the high court — the NRSC’s tweet provoked an avalanche of outrage from the institutional left.
Journalists, left-wing activists, feminists, Democrat politicians, Hollywood elites, corporate players, authors, etc., all pounced with the fury of an angry bull.
Here’s just a small sampling (*Language warning):
Eat shit, fascist ghouls

Hey @NRSC – If anything had “backfire” written all over it… it’s this rip off t-shirt. You have no souls.
Every woman will see this, and It is motivating as hell.

So exceptionally tone deaf. Take your unprincipled, stolen win – but gloating, mocking…these people are trash.

You are all disgusting people. This is an insult to women, to the legacy of RBG, to America. This party is the least patriotic, most GODLESS party in the history of our country. You pretend to care about others & that you have morals, but you are all heathens and liars.

This is disgraceful. There is nothing about Amy Barrett that is deserving of this name.

There are thousands upon thousands upon thousands of additional tweets like this, all of them seemingly coming from left-wing personalities.
However, the criticism didn’t appear to faze the NRSC, which if anything appeared to double down by reposting the original tweet again a couple of minutes later.

The criticism also didn’t seem to faze conservatives in general.
On one hand, some liked the t-shirt and were amused by the outrage:
So delicious, no way to describe it, feels like Christmas. I love it so much.

On the other hand, some conservatives seemed far more disturbed by the character assassination of Barrett that’s being perpetrated by the very same sorts of people upset by the NRSC’s tee.
The attacks on the SCOTUS nominee have been ruthless and relentless, with every aspect of Barrett’s life — including her adoption of two Haitian children — being treated as cannon fodder to tarnish her image as an otherwise upstanding human being.
“Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or … when there was family in Haiti?” one Democrat activist and former Capitol Hill staffer tweeted.
“As an adoptee, I need to know more about the circumstances of how Amy Coney Barrett came to adopt her children, and the treatment of them since. Transracial adoption is fraught with trauma and potential for harm.” another left-wing activist wrote.
Read this from Democrat activist & Hill staffer. Questioning whether #AmyConeyBarrett *illegally* adopted her children from Haiti, maybe snatching them from birth parents! This is the Dem gameplan. Nothing but raw bigotry and hate. I promise you, this will not stand pic.twitter.com/JEMqhe05dY

Listen, I get there are disagreements when it comes to SCOTUS nominations over how justices interpret the Constitution (ie originalism, textualism) — but can we not attack Amy Coney Barrett for her freaking adopted Haitian children? Ridiculous, @johnbrougher pic.twitter.com/RCswuhz3Yv

The worst attack came from left-wing hero Ibram X. Kendi, the notorious anti-white racist whose so-called “Center for Antiracist Research” received a $10 million donation from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey last month.
In widely panned tweets posted Saturday afternoon, he seemed to compare Barrett’s adoption of two Haitian children to “white colonizers” adopting “savage” black children and teaching them to be “civilized.”
<Amy Coney Barrett, her husband, and their kids>
Normal America: what a beautiful family!
Ibram Kendi: nope must be a abusive colonizers
What a broken and completely insane way of viewing the world. https://t.co/6FK67ZJ7CZ

But not everybody on the left has attacked Barrett. Noah Feldman, one of the left-wing “experts” who was called by Democrats to testify against President Donald Trump during his impeachment hearings last year, wrote a piece in her defense.
“Regardless of what you or I may think of the circumstances of this nomination, Barrett is highly qualified to serve on the Supreme Court. I disagree with much of her judicial philosophy and expect to disagree with many, maybe even most of her future votes and opinions,” his piece for Bloomberg reads.
“Yet despite this disagreement, I know her to be a brilliant and conscientious lawyer who will analyze and decide cases in good faith, applying the jurisprudential principles to which she is committed. Those are the basic criteria for being a good justice. Barrett meets and exceeds them.”
It isn’t some “right-wing nut job” saying this — it’s one of the Democrats’ own witnesses.
