Final September, when Supreme Court docket Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died, liberals waxed poetic about her profession. Why, simply take a look at the primary line of The Washington Occasions’ obituary of RBG:
“Supreme Court docket Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the second girl to serve on the excessive court docket and a authorized pioneer for gender equality whose fierce opinions as a justice made her a hero to the left, died Sept. 18 at her dwelling in Washington. She was 87,” the capital’s newspaper of file famous.
This September, the Supreme Court docket refused to strike down a Texas legislation which might ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat was detected, leaving sides to battle it out within the decrease courts.
The choice was by a 5-4 margin — with Ginsburg’s alternative, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, voting in opposition to placing the legislation down.
Liberal evaluation of Ginsburg after Wednesday’s ruling: “thanks you outdated useless white b****.”
What a distinction a 12 months makes.
Within the wake of the Supreme Court docket’s refusal to bar enforcement of the Texas law — which was fairly a bit much less apocalyptic for pro-abortion forces than they made it out to be — quite a few Twitterers got here out in pressure to criticize Ginsburg for not retiring when Barack Obama was within the White Home and Democrats had management of the Senate.
There have been a few of the milder tweets, like this one from liberal pundit Michael Cohen (no, not that Michael Cohen) saying RBG should have left the court docket in 2014, earlier than the GOP took the higher chamber:
Looking back, possibly Ruth Bader Ginsburg ought to have stepped down from the Court docket in 2014

The opposite facet of the spectrum got here from these like author Nandini Balial, who has since deleted this hot take on the heroine of the left:
Sure, apparently, the appropriate to kill the unborn is so sacrosanct on the left they’ll even communicate ailing of the useless they so dearly beloved final 12 months.
The remainder fell someplace in between these two poles.
Right here’s former Bernie Sanders surrogate, Chicago mayoral candidate and left-wing activist Ja’Mal Green calling her “Ruth Vader Ginsburg” and implying she was a member of the “institution.”
People blaming Bernie for what occurred in Texas are ridiculous. Did y’all not keep in mind the time once we there was a democrat in workplace and had the possibility the inform Ruth Vader Ginsburg to retire however didn’t? Cease it. The institution must take duty for his or her mess.

Florida Democratic congressional candidate Pam Keith professed her love for RBG, however says her determination to not retire “was a COLOSSAL mistake.”
I really like RBG. However that was a COLOSSAL mistake.
I was FURIOUS that Obama let McConnell steal that SCOTUS seat from him, and didn’t simply seat Garland.
I now assume we dodged a bullet. Garland is a DISASTER. https://t.co/4XA1nptPZp

Right here’s the U.Okay. Unbiased’s Eric Michael Garcia noting that “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s greatest legacy as a Justice (although not as an legal professional) is Amy Coney Barrett.”
In equity, I acquired this concept from my amigo @markyzaguirre. He’s harsher than her since I feel a few of her good points as an legal professional gained’t be erased. However Ginsburg not retiring in 2013 was one of the crucial consequential choices by a justice.

“Y’all have enjoyable when President Tom Cotton replaces Stephen Breyer,” he added.

Whereas the choice is probably going completely different than what would have come down beneath final 12 months’s court docket, this wasn’t the dying knell of Roe v. Wade that liberals made it out to be — as a lot as any obstacle to unfettered abortion is invariably painted in these phrases.
As The Wall Street Journal identified, Texas’ fetal heartbeat legislation “was constructed with authorized entice doorways and the intention to make it as troublesome as doable to problem in court docket.”
Is Texas’ fetal heartbeat legislation constitutional?
Sure: 100% (19 Votes)
No: 0% (0 Votes)
“The legislation places the enforcement powers within the palms of personal residents, slightly than state or native enforcement businesses. And it provides Texans a big monetary incentive to blow the whistle on beforehand authorized abortions, permitting the gathering of hefty damages and attorneys’ charges from any one that allegedly performs or aids within the abortion after detection of a heartbeat — with no caps on restoration.”
The bulk didn’t rule that the legislation was constitutional, nevertheless. Justice Alito’s majority opinion famous these searching for an injunction “have raised critical questions concerning the constitutionality of the Texas legislation at concern.”
Nonetheless, he famous the case “presents advanced and novel … procedural questions” and that “it’s unclear whether or not the named defendants on this lawsuit can or will search to implement the Texas legislation in opposition to the candidates in a way which may allow our intervention.”
However then, a part of the freakout is clearly directed at liberal Justice Stephen Breyer, who’s 83 and has served on the court docket for 27 years now. In July, Breyer advised CNN he hadn’t determined whether or not he would retire after this session, with two components weighing on his thoughts.
“Primarily, after all, well being,” Breyer stated. “Second, the court docket.”
Final 12 months, Ginsburg was the Infamous RBG, Surprise Girl, the vaunted saint of the left. This 12 months: “thanks you outdated useless white b****.” Breyer isn’t adored — and even infamous, for that matter. My guess is that seven out of 10 folks angrily tweeting about how he ought to step down now couldn’t decide him out of a lineup of 4 bald white octogenarians.
As a facet observe, I’m at the moment studying a biography of Oliver Cromwell, who deposed King Charles I of England and dominated as lord protector till his dying in 1658. After the monarchy was restored in 1660, Cromwell’s body was dug up, tried for his crimes in opposition to the throne, then hanged and beheaded — which wasn’t an unusual follow on the time, surprisingly.
I doubt anybody will go to those lengths with Stephen Breyer if he stays on and dies with a GOP-controlled Senate. Nonetheless, judging by a few of the whiplash on the left’s beloved RBG over this week’s Texas determination, I’d be shocked if some blue checkmark didn’t not less than tweet about it.
