  2. “Religion is regarded by the masses as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” — Seneca the Younger

    • @Emsley Wyatt You know nothing about drugs, if you believe that. How about political theater?

    • @SoCal Surfer16 we understand you’re vying to be Trump’s prison wife, while we all fully support your endeavor, this isn’t the forum to express those desires. Please do society a favor and keep your delusional rantings and homoerotic trump fantasies on the Q-Anon boards where they belong. Society thanks you in advance for your cooperation.

    • @Emsley Wyatt true….more popular than religion, I guess

    • Amen to that brother , well said.

    • @SoCal Surfer16 explain why? I bet you don’t have an argumnet you just repeat constructed sentences fit to make you think that you laid out a meaningful rejection by saying that this makes you dangerously idiotic

  3. Amy Coney Barrett is the prototype pseudo-evangelical monster … just about the last person you should have on ANY court.

    • @Rory Cannon your hypocrisy is astounding!

    • @Toad Sauce wait wait wait.

      are you telling me that you believe that the democrats deserve criticism for the sole reason that they upheld their constitutional duties and impeached the president for an impeachable offense, and as the constitution dictates, attempt conviction and removal?

      democrats did condemn rioting lmao.

    • @Rory Cannon That’s just it, they didn’t uphold their constitutional duties. The minute people in congress called for the presidents impeachment before he took office made it clear their intentions were not to uphold the law but to remove a sitting president.

    • @Toad SauceTrump committed multiple impeachable offenses, HOW IS HIS REMOVAL NOT CONSTITUTIONAL?

      @Toad Sauce
      And I’m laughing at you and jenna abrams because

  5. Putting her on the bench and saying she’s not going to do the R bidding is like signing a 50 million dollar running back and telling us he’s only going to cut oranges in the locker room for half time.

  7. She supports trump,so I CAN’T support her!!!#BIDEN2020!!!!!!!!!

  8. Barrett should not be allowed to the Supreme Court , it would send the rights for women back to the stone age.

    This is a big fat no from every woman on the plant vote no

    • Huge yes from millions of decent women. Did you mean Planet? Learn to type, secretary. Maga

    • @Old Matty like you know any women 😂😂😂. I’m guessing you watch in the corner like Falwell Jr and Trump. It’s cool kiddo we all know what kind of TDS Trump’s bottom boys like you suffer from. Your brain wasn’t the only organ god was conservative with 😂😂😂. Do society a favor and keep your homoerotic trump fantasies on the Q-Anon boards where they belong. While I support your enthusiastic endeavor to be Trump’s prison wife this isn’t the forum to express those desires. Society thanks you in advance for your cooperation.

    • Agreed. Trumpism at it’s worst.

  10. The American public deserves to hear her beliefs on important topics that could affect our lives . It’s frustrating to watch her continuously refuse to say anything ,She is robbing the public of her answers .What’s the point of the hearing ,if she can just plead the fifth to pretty much all the questions asked.

      @Steve Chance —-Did you get that Steve? Over.

    • @All American Chutzpah My bad. I see so much ugly here in the YouTube comments that I inadvertently assumed I was reading ugly when I was reading well written sarcasm. I think that’s part of the reason Conservatives don’t like us. We use sarcasm and irony, and the Conservative knows there is an underlying point we are making, but they don’t get the point, and they assume we are making fun of them.

    • You are trying to apply a rule of law that applies to a defendant (5th Amendment – self incrimination) to a judge who is non politically biased. If the legislators want answers then ask questions that she can answer rather than those that do require opinion surrounding a desired outcome.

      ACB is a wonderful woman and will make a great justice. She is a much better role model for young women than Pelosi or Klobuchar. Unlike them, she has integrity!

    • @Derek Boyt Is she? Prove it. She’s a member of a nutty sect that believes women aren’t full citizens. How can she be a wonderful woman and hold those beliefs? Further if she holds those beliefs how can she be expected to rule fairly on 14th Amendment issue pertaining to women that come before the Court, almost all civil rights cases that come before the court are 14th Amendment cases.

      How is she a better role model for young women than women who don’t lie about their religion? Or about her own actions? Things she has done today despite her faiths supposed absolute prohibition on doing so.

    • Ken Shaw – You sure are applying a tremendous amount of opinion as it applies to her faith and gender. It’s seems as if you have a problem with both of these categories.

      Like most Americans (and people of the entire world) a person who believes in god is representative of 95% of the population. That must really bother you.

      I’m surprised you didn’t just call her inferior for being a woman and hating her for having faith. In fact, I wouldn’t want a person who didn’t have faith to represent 95% of the people.

      Keep casting those stones and polishing the windows of that glass house of yours.

  11. Coney Barrett has always stood firm that her religious views would dictate her rulings on the bench.
    And here I thought we lived in America, where the government didn’t impose religious views on the people. 🤔

  12. RBG was an awesome woman. She will be missed. ACB is a vile snake.

    This woman is a monster will reverse all the gains women made in USA
    Stop her or change the judiciary

  14. The President does NOT have the power to postpone the election.
    The President is not a King!

  15. From Ginsburg to this?

  16. American Republicans have proven that they are against democracy buy tactics of voter suppression. American Republicans are the strongest enemy against American democracy

  17. I don’t understand why Democrat politicians and the media doesn’t say in reality what will happen if the fordable Care Act is repealed Americans will die therefore it is Republican premeditated murder for insurance company profits

  18. Amy Coney Barrett is the reaper…and she’s coming to shred the rights of many.

  19. She is a willing participant in a travesty of justice, it says a lot about who she is and what her intentions are.

  20. So many of trumps picks have been horrible failures bent on following their leader no matter what .
