When good men die their goodness does not perish, But lives though they are gone. As for the bad, All that was theirs dies and is buried with them. ~ Euripides, circa 450 BC.
To be somewhat cynical about the whole matter, RGB’s death really took the momentum out of the ‘systemic racism’ hysteria. Black Lives Matter / Antifa, etal, have absolutely no interest in the passing of an 87 year old feminist/activist, since they don’t even know who she is. Plus Margaret Sanger would be proud as Punch. Must be a ‘white thang’ after all.
Quite clearly she was ‘for’ things millions of us are against. For one, she betrayed the oath she took to become a Supreme Court justice. Too smart for her own good she could’ve retired under OBO#44, but hubris got in the way and she stayed too long. Now, she’s got her own people (liberals, leftists, commies) cursing her name. Hubris personified; hoisted on her own petard as it were!
God is not to be mocked, nor does he forget; and that’s the way life should be lived. For one thing, a good, solid and healthy respect for the Almighty is good for the soul, and no amount of explaining what RBG thought ‘good’ on her own part is going to meet muster. The problem with government – including the ‘add-ons’ like the Supreme Court – is that it has no business in the social affairs of mankind through law.
Fact of the matter is that RBG was responsible for millions of unborn children through her unwavering support for abortion; but it was nice that she got along with Antonin Scalia (how many dozen times now have we heard this from the demoMarxocrat Left over the weekend?) Some even thought well of Magda Goebbels after she ‘offed’ her children. After all, she was just protecting her family. Ahem!
When you die, the bad parts get forgotten about you.
Monica Showalter, American Thinker: ‘Ruth Bader Ginsburg, eugenicist’ …
Anyone notice an absence of black faces at the recent Ruth Bader Ginsburg memorials?
She’s being lionized, though, and several prominent supposed black leaders such as Rep. James Clyburn (the man who brought us Joe Biden) and the Rev. Al Sharpton have sung her praises. Like the Black Lives Matter protests, though, it’s mostly an all-white show with some black people out front.
One reason may be that Ginsburg was Jewish, and anti-Semitism in the U.S. is the strongest in the black community.
But there’s also Ginsburg herself, who had some pretty questionable views about abortion and race. Here’s an actual quote from the New York Times magazine, dating from 2009:
Yes, the ruling about that surprised me. [Harris v. McRae — in 1980 the court upheld the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions.] Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.
It’s so bad that I thought it had to be fake when I first saw it. I had to look it up to confirm its authenticity. Who talks like that in 2009? Heck, who talks like that in 1973? [-]
[+] … She brings up Medicaid, the government medical program for the poor. Ahem.
We all know who that is. It sure sounds like eugenics to me. And this person is being lionized.
American Thinker contributor Allan Favish noted the other day that Ginsburg also favored racial quotas, which explicitly included promoting less qualified black people over more qualified white people, which might sound contradictory but isn’t. Promoting a less qualified black person over a more qualified white is patronage, and the soft bigotry of low expectations.
It might just explain why she’s not as exciting to black people as she is to whites. With views like that, typical leftist ones, no wonder blacks are moving toward Trump. [end]

The full truth of the matter is that DemoMarxocrats built the virtual hell holes they live in. Those who have supported and pushed for the murder of babies in the womb over the past 100+ years should have no “standing” in anyone’s eyes. We the (63 million) People can only hope that the black population in America finally has come to the understanding that they were targeted for eugenics for decades and decades – All one needs to do is to go back in history and check the numbers. Reprehensible!
RBG – eugenicist par excellence and proof positive that on the left absolutely any degree of moral corruption is acceptable as long as the correct far left political positions are supported. And yes, even including those far left political positions that are typically too radical and evil to mention; even those are never off limits.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Thank GOD for warrior-president Donald John Trump and his unfailing commitment to MAGA! KAG!
