Bette Midler, Hollywood leftist and star of Disney’s “Hocus Pocus 2,” endorses a national campaign for “every woman and girl” to blatantly disrespect the national anthem by kneeling. This is apparently to protest the likelihood that the Supreme Court will overturn Roe v. Wade.
Midler, who was just warming up, then compared Justice Samuel Alito to Tomas de Torquemada, the Spanish Inquisition’s Grand Inquisitor. It was Alito’s draft that was leaked by an unknown person last week. Midler also tweeted that the Spanish Inquisition is back.
Not satisfied to stop there, the uber-tolerant Midler complained that seven of the nine current Supreme Court justices are Catholic. Actually, there are six, but it would just confuse her to learn that Neil Gorsuch was born Catholic, but now attends an Episcopalian parish.
Proving that there is never an idea so bad that the left will not dust it off and treat it like it’s brilliant and new, the singer and actress took a face-first dive onto the woke train.
Of course, this is nothing original on her part, and it doesn’t take a time traveler to find recent examples of other woke stupidity.
While trashing Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) for his major role in sinking President Joe Biden’s multi-trillion dollar social spending package, Midler decided to smear the entire state. The Hollywood liberal labeled West Virginia as full of people who are “poor, illiterate and strung out.”
In what passes for a leftist apology, Midler tweeted her regrets “to the good people of WVA.” Not content to stop there, she then immediately accused Manchin “and his whole family” of being a criminal organization.
Of course, it was former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick who made the disrespectful act a thing when he began protesting against law enforcement.
If Bette Midler and the left are searching for ways to further prove to middle America that their elitist ideals are not aligned with the population, kneeling is a great way to start. Just ask the NFL how long it took to get its fans back.
