A women hating woman, freedom denying batshit cray cray theocracy dreaming extremist

So not only does Trump want to bounce a conservative into SCOTUS before the election, to try and steal the democratic outcome, he wants to put a women hating woman, freedom denying batshit cray cray theocracy dreaming extremist in the seat. One might suggest that Amy Coney Barrett is a tad touched in the head something that you can say about religious zealots of all stripes. Her particular catholic cult despises women and she buys into that misogyny. She must really dislike herself to cling onto an ideal that demands she submit to her husband in all things. I know I do not need to spell this out, but I am going to anyway, make no mistake she is a real and present danger to the democracy of America, if the Senate bounces her into SCOTUS before the election. Feinstein said of and too her in 2017 "The conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country."

There are profound implications on reproductive justice, LGBTQI rights and voting rights if this particular zealot gets her democracy stealing hands on the levers of justice. Just look at examples from actual theocratic states to see where they are trying to take America. They want something that looks remarkably similar to patriarchy wrapped in religious fervour for power over and oppression of everyone in society. Never mind the separation of church and state, that is just a pesky detail when you are actively plotting a coup in plain sight, and God (cough, the devil) has told all of them that they MUST ensure widespread legitimised oppression especially around gender, sexual orientation and race. That it is their biblical duty to ensure women have little political capital and agency. They want to take away the power of people to make their own life choices, choices, in their wannabee world, can only made within the prism of their zealotry. That mind set taken to the extreme is knocking at the door of the highest court in the land. Terrifying.

1. Be careful

This is exactly where Trump wants to take this. My guess at this point is that he will nominate Barrett over Lagoa, since he's pretty much got it going on with the Cubans in Florida anyway. The recent pronouncements on not doing business with Cuba are enough to keep them in line, he won't have to throw them a Justice, too.

But, his polling numbers with Catholics have declined markedly, and he'd love to get back his edge with them. Just this morning, my lady, a lapsed Catholic, and I (a former Catholic, now an atheist) discussed this. We both knew "hyper Catholics" who sometimes made us feel a bit guilty for being so when we were more enthralled with Catholic doctrine and practice. Anyone who attacked an overly religious Catholic from outside the religion would have stirred us to defend the zealot, mostly by reflex.

Trump is an expert at dividing people, it's how he's gotten everything he has ever attained. I fully expect him to go after Joe Biden on his reversal of support of the Hyde Amendment during at least one of the debates. He's going to challenge the notion that Joe is a "real Catholic" in order to peel votes away from Biden in Catholic-heavy swing states.

We cannot have the confirmation process be useful to that strategy. Joe Biden may well have to come out in support of Catholicism in order to retain his credibility with Catholic voters, and that might be distasteful to many non-Catholic Democratic voters. But it is essential to winning the election if we do not fall for Trump's divide-and-conquer methods of political warfare.

He is paying down his horror show. Your analysis is spot on.

4. Don't put too much faith in Roberts

A 2nd term Trump, the respectability as a justice might not matter that much!

He's a wild card and has not proved to be a Trump sycophant
