In a compilation of extremist Christians’ responses to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at LGBTQ Nation, the late justice was called a “murdering hag” by one follower of Christ while another compared her to Adolf Hitler before stating he had redeeming qualities she lacked.

As the report notes, far-right Christians were beside themselves with joy after Ginsburg passed away from pancreatic cancer, paving the way for Donald Trump to nominate her successor who will likely be a deciding vote to eliminate a woman’s right to control her own body.

According to former GOP politician and evangelical Gordon Klingenschmitt, “With glowing tributes from leftists, pro-aborts, LGBTs and the mainstream media pouring in from around the globe, I personally mourn her death because she apparently did not know Christ. This past month I prayed for her soul, that she would prepare to meet God.”

That was one of the nicer things said about the liberal Supreme Court pioneer.

Evangelical activist Dave Daubenmire didn’t hold back in his contempt for the late Ginsburg, writing, “Hitler condoned the killing of at least six million. Ginsburg – 60 million. Do you mourn Hitler’s death? Who’s more wicked? If it wasn’t a tragedy that Hitler died, why is it a tragedy that she died? Can somebody explain that to me, please?”

“Hitler had good intentions,” he added. “He reformed Germany. He did a lot of good things. He rebuilt their economy. We’re just not going to hold this murder of these Jews against him, are we? He did a lot of great things. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, why she went and advanced women’s rights. She brought women out of the kitchen. Oh, she did so many good things. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks? Wake the heck up. She was destructive. She was wicked and destructive.”

Former Donald Trump adviser Frank Amedia couldn’t help but make a joke about her Jewish faith, writing, “very interesting that a Jewish princess was taken home on Rosh Hashanah — or taken somewhere, praise the Lord, I’ll leave that to him.”

At the right-wing Christian site Stream, John Zmirak speculated God killed Ginsburg  “… at just this moment for some special reason,” giving the president an opportunity to dramatically alter the court in a way that would please Christians.

Brett Kavanaugh revised his Wisconsin ruling after Vermont official’s demands — but it still contains the lies

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice revised his Wisconsin opinion after a Vermont official complained that he misrepresented the way the state dealt with the election amid the pandemic. The problem, however, is that his corrections only cleaned up the sloppy language.

While it no longer appears like a high school mock trial assignment, it still lies about the example he gave in the Vermont details.

‘You’re free to go’: CNN’s Lemon tells Trump after president spends weeks complaining about going to rallies

Published

President Donald Trump has spent the last several days at rallies complaining about how much he hates being there and how much he hates being president.

CNN's Don Lemon played clips of the rally airing of grievances.

"I probably bottom be standing out here in the freezing rain with you," Trump complained while in Lansing, Michigan. "I would be home in the White House doing whatever the hell I was doing. I wouldn't be out here."

"We win Wisconsin, we win the whole ball game," Trump told a crowd in Janesville, Wisconsin last week. "What the hell do you think I'm doing here on a freezing night with 45-degree wind? What do you think? Do you think I'm doing this for my health? I'm not doing this for my health."

Trump’s new favorite X-ray doctor is retweeting demands Dr. Fauci debate him

President Donald J. Trump selected radiologist Scott William Atlas as his newest health care policy advisor on the White House Coronavirus Task Force this past August after a public fallout with immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. The two scholars could not be any more different on their approach to mitigating the pandemic, which has so far killed over 227,000 Americans.

"If we get a vaccination campaign, and by the second or third quarter of 2021 we have vaccinated a substantial proportion of the people, I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality," Fauci said recently during a University of Melbourne panel.
