The organizational hierarchy of the Girl Scouts of America crumbled in the face of the woke social media mob and deleted a tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barret on becoming the fifth woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. All five of the jurists, three of whom are Democrats, were depicted in the tweet.
On Wednesday, the organization took to social media to apologize for its initial benign tweet. “Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post.”
The social media account added that “Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.”
Had ACB been appointed by a Democrat president, common sense suggests that no one would have said a word in opposition. In fact, the organization has not been entirely consistent in its nonpartisan philosophy, according to Fox News. “The Girl Scouts previously shared a Huffington Post article dating back to December 2013 in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the importance of female political leadership as she was mulling a run in the 2016 election. A spokesperson for the Girl Scouts did not immediately return FOX News’ request for comment on that political tweet, which remained on the organization’s Twitter feed.”

Of course the @girlscouts caved to the mob and deleted this tweet congratulating Amy Coney Barrett.

Moreover, on the lack of consistency, the Girls Scouts issued a tweet back in March 2019 that celebrated Sandra Day O’Connor (the first woman on the court, nominated by GOP President Ronald Reagan), the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg (nominated by Bill Clinton), Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor (both nominated by Barack Obama) for being “inspiring role models worth honoring.” The organization also apparently mourned Justice Ginsburg’s passing.
Hey @girlscouts you deleted your tweet congratulating Judge Barrett on her confirmation to SCOTUS because the Democrats whined about it and you caved to the mob but I notice you left this up. Gonna delete this too or do only Republican women get deleted? https://t.co/DYpBe5v4RR

The U.S. Senate confirmed ACB on Monday evening, October 26, by a 52-48 vote on a strict party-line vote (with the exception of GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, who voted no). She was sworn in later that night in a White House ceremony. Her elevation gives the high court a theoretical 6-3 conservative majority, although Chief Justice John Roberts is a wild card. In her first days on the court, Barrett, unfortunately, gave two big wins to the Democrats by recusing herself from critical election law cases from Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Common sense indicates that no one would have said a word about the GSA Barrett tweet if ACB was a Democrat appointee. On its Twitter page, the GSA describes “risk-takers and leaders” but neither of those qualities appeared to be present when officials decided to scrub the ACB tweet.
As you can readily imagine, blue-check, Twitter, which hysterically sees ACB as the “the Handmaid’s Tale” come to life, initiated the backlash about the original messaging in the first place, celebrated the deletion. Others had a different view and figuratively would deny the group a merit badge for fortitude in response to the cancel culture. Here is a sample:

So you don’t celebrate the success of conservative women, only liberal women?
Noted. My daughter was going to join next year. But now? No way.

Deleting that tweet was a political act.

You spineless weasels. You’re supposed to empower and represent strong women and girls…and you caved into a Twitter mob of perpetually unhappy miserable leftists?
Watch me never buy a box of your overpriced, dry ass cookies again. 👌🏻

I love how everyone is all for women’s empowerment and equality until that woman is a Conservative.

Celebrating women’s achievement isn’t political.
Never succumb to the mob.
Speaking as a scout who earned her Gold Award, I’m sorry you guys are going through this.
Just log off and don’t engage with the Insane.
