Hell Hath No Fury Like a Leftist Woman

The despicable treatment of Amy Coney Barrett by other women is quite telling.

Women on the Left are so contentious with such intolerance that they’ve destroyed their own credibility by mocking and degrading the very thing they claim to support.


During the Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, the bilge and bile spewed from all leftist quarters, including feminists who seems to be triggered by a truly accomplished woman. Barrett is an extraordinary jurist, a brilliant scholar, a faithful wife, and a loving mother of seven children — two of whom are adopted from Haiti and one of whom has Down Syndrome. Barrett fulfills the construct of an empowered woman having it all. But darn it, she wasn’t supposed to be a Christian conservative female powerhouse!

Some leftist women are working to bludgeon the reputation of a stellar judge and are mocking Barrett’s life of faith. Toronto Star writer Heather Mallick insulted Barrett over her answer about her independent thinking. Mallick scoffed, “She should be called ‘Judge Amy Father Husband’ because she is named after the men she has obeyed all her life as a Handmaid in this nutty People of Praise religious cult that Democrats are too polite to mock. This is why Dems lost to Trump last time. Courage up, people.” Evidently, it takes “courage” to hatefully mock someone’s faith, intact family, and accomplished position as a federal judge.

Feminist author Lauren Hough vulgarly tweeted, “It’s a very weird thing to watch these old creeps congratulate a handmaid on her clown car vagina.” She continued sarcastically, “You can tell a lot about how a judge will rule by her fertility so I’m glad she’s already proven hers because the cervix check really shouldn’t be done live. But I’m excited for her to share her casserole recipe and some stain-removal tips.”

These bitter, biting words meant to publicly shame and maim might be difficult to understand when we remember the proclamations of groups like Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL in their fundraising pitches: “elect! more! women!” Except that we know what they’re really saying is, “Elect only women who think and act like us.”

Vice President Mike Pence treated Senator Kamala Harris as an equal in the VP debate on October 7. Indeed, according to CNN, Harris spoke for 38 minutes and 48 seconds compared to Pence’s 35 minutes and 22 seconds. Despite this, Harris repeatedly played the victim card with exaggerated facial expressions of eye rolling, scoffing, and head shaking to go along with repeated demands that she not be interrupted. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos laughably singled out VP Pence for “mansplaining.” The victimhood narrative was fulfilled, leaving leftist women satisfied.

Contrast that with the decorum of Amy Coney Barrett in her Senate hearings as she matter-of-factly addressed questions — even the stupid ones — directly and within the confines of judicial temperament and canons. Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar interrupted Judge Barrett to accuse her of having “cut a deal with the president” related to ObamaCare. Senator Harris, with delicious irony, tried to manipulate Barrett to get a response on “a very contentious matter.” When Barrett responded with a frank “it’s inconsistent with the judicial role,” Harris moved into an angry feminist version of “mansplaining.” The senator and Democrat VP nominee then launched into a lecture of the illegitimacy of the Senate hearings. For shock value, Hawaii Democrat Mazie Hirono asked Barrett if she had ever “made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature.”

Because of Barrett’s partisan affiliation, leftist women see no problem with being contentious and intolerant as they seek to destroy Barrett by mocking and degrading the very thing they claim to support — a successful and accomplished woman.

Why? Amy Coney Barrett and all other strong, conservative Christian women serve as the rebuttal to the notion that only the Left represents women and any issues of substance for the female gender. When leftists don’t get the result they want, like the 2016 presidential election, the response is to attack the legitimacy and move from dismissal to disruption.

Hell truly has no fury like a leftist woman scorned.
