Actress Bette Midler just can’t catch a break this week, going from transphobic to Islamophobic in her tweets and getting slammed by leftists all over the place, who are accusing her of being against transgenders as well as Muslims.
After an epic meltdown for weeks, Midler stepped in it the first time by tweeting, “WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘birthing people’ or ‘menstruators’, and even ‘people with vaginas’! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!”
For that woke offense, Midler was branded transphobic and called out as a TERF (Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist). The cancel culture turned on Midler as one and came after her with a vengeance.
Now, she’s done it again by tweeting out a photoshopped image of members of the Supreme Court wearing beards, turbans, and a burka, as Islamic extremists.

The tweet was evidently meant as a political statement against the Supreme Court which overturned the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade enraging leftists. It was immediately descended upon and derided as Islamophobic on social media.
The post was thought to be a comparison between the recent abortion ruling by the high court and the repression by Islamic or Sharia law. According to the Independent, Islam does not forbid abortions and in fact, they are not banned outright in any majority-Muslim nation. Not to mention the not insignificant fact that the decision was decided by American Christians.
“Seriously you should visit Afghanistan.. I mean Joe did such a great job there! Go see how women are treated! You can be an advocate for your causes there!” Steph Pritchard advised the aging feminist on Twitter.

“Is this meant to insult the court? Why do you hate Muslims Bett?” EricD inquired.

Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill, who was fired by CNN in 2018 after accusations of antisemitism, nailed her as well.
“Wow. Bette Midler is on a roll this week. From transphobic to Islamophobic,” tweeted Hill, who ironically gave a speech to the UN where he accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and called for an end to Israel “from the river to the sea,” which is an oft-used phrase borrowed from terrorist Hamas leaders.
“Bette Midler was like, ‘well I did transphobia yesterday, so maybe I’ll go with racism today,'” another Twitter user snarked.
“Can y’all find a way to critique Christian nationalism without being islamophobic?” one person asked. “Bette, it’s tired. If you can’t find a way to be ‘liberal’ without throwing minorities under the bus, you are doing it very wrong. Give it a rest.”
Midler was not the only one to compare the Supreme Court justices to the Taliban. Barbra Streisand also referred to the Court as “the American Taliban” after the decision was handed down, and singer Patti LuPone quipped, “What is the difference between the Taliban and the Christian Right? I’ll now add the Supreme Court. America is on her knees.”
The Court uses religious dogma to overturn the constitutional right to abortion. This Court is the American Taliban.
