Bette Midler: ‘Every Woman and Girl’ Should Take a Knee during National Anthem
Actress reacts U.S. Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision on Roe v. Wade.
Hocus Pocus 2 star Bette Midler has urged women and girls to take a knee the next time “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played.
The liberal actress's remarks come in an apparent protest of the U.S. Supreme Court’s forthcoming decision on Roe v. Wade.
Midler posted a meme to Twitter calling for “every woman and girl” to disrespect the national anthem by kneeling.
The actress also compared Justice Samuel Alito to Tomás de Torquemada, the Grand Inquisitor during the Spanish Inquisition.
She then complained that seven of the nine Supreme Court justices are Catholic.
Out of 9 justices, 7 on #SCOTUS are Catholic. (Neil Gorsuch was born Catholic, but in a burst of #Anglophilia, is now #Episcopalian). Does that scream “diversity of opinion” or “ability to be objective and fair” to you given the historic #RomanCatholic antipathy to abortion?— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) May 3, 2022
Midler also questioned whether this prevented the high court from being “objective and fair.”
Bette Midler was reacting to last week’s unprecedented leak of Supreme Court documents showing that the high court is prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Midler followed through with this tweet:
The leak set off a wave of anguish from Hollywood celebrities, who have urged their fans to protest in the streets.
Since football star Colin Kaepernick popularized it, kneeling for the national anthem has become a favorite form of protest among far-left celebrities.
