Apparently the phony “war on women” has made its way to the Supreme Court. Upset by the fact that a majority of the justices on the high court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby’s religious freedoms, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is now accusing them of being sexist.
In a new interview with pro-abortion media icon Katie Couric, Ginsburg lashes out at her colleagues and claims they have a “blind spot” towards women because they decided that Hobby Lobby should not be forced to pay for drugs that cause abortions for their employees.
Never mind that polls show a majority of women oppose the pro-abortion HHS mandate the Obama administration wanted Hobby Lobby to obey.
Moreover, Ginsburg likens her dissent in the case to the dissent in the Supreme Court decision fostering racial discrimination against minorities. In other words, Ginsburg thinks their purported anti-woman views put the pro-Hobby Lobby justices in the same league as the racist views the Supreme Court fostered well over a century ago.
In an interview with Katie Couric released on Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg put an optimistic spin on the legacy of high-profile decisions like Hobby Lobby and Citizens United. “We have a great tradition in our country: Justices who disagree with the court’s opinion explaining why they disagree. Many of those dissents are now unquestionably the law of the land,” she said, citing the dissent in Plessy v. Ferguson, the 1896 Supreme Court decision upholding state laws that racially segregated public facilities.
On Hobby Lobby, and her scathing 35-page dissent, Ginsburg said her male colleagues have a “blind spot” when it comes to women. “Do you believe that the five male justices truly understood the ramifications of their decision?” Couric asked Ginsburg. “I would have to say no,” she replied.
Ginsburg again ended her thought on a positive. “But justices continue to think and can change,” she continued. “I am ever hopeful that if the court has a blind spot today, its eyes will be open tomorrow.”
And as for the calls for her to retire? RBG wants the public to STFU.
“All I can say is that I am still here and likely to remain for a while,” she said.
