The Girl Scouts Un-Tweet ACB and Lose Their Way...

by succumbing to the will of the woke and cancel culture. But your little troopers don't have to.

At Primerrily, we are still celebrating the confirmation of now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. As we’ve written about (check out our ACB collection), we find Justice Barrett inspiring in myriad ways.

With Justice Barrett only the fifth woman to be on the Supreme Court since it was formed in 1789 (out of 120 justices, just 4%), only the third mother (and mother of seven, to boot), and the first with school-aged children, one would think that all Americans would marvel at her incredible accomplishment. Many conservatives, for example, while not agreeing with the judicial philosophies of Justices Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor, acknowledge deep respect for qualities they’ve brought with them: from Justice Ginsburg’s strategic work on gender discrimination (not to mention her deep friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia), to Justice Kagan’s deanship at Harvard Law School, to Justice Sotomayor’s role as the first Hispanic on the Court.

Unfortunately, bipartisan respect is far from the case, as illustrated by many in DC, around the country, and -- most shockingly -- a disappointing example of “cancel culture” by the Girl Scouts. On October 28, the Girl Scout’s Twitter account made a seemingly innocuous post: “Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789,” featuring an image of all five female Supreme Court Justices in our nation’s history.
