  1. [RBG]
    Why was she 'selected'?
    Who appointed her?
    Remember [her] history.
    Ref: 230-page book called Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, published in 1977 by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
    >Called for the sex-integration of prisons and reformatories so that conditions of imprisonment, security and housing could be equal. She explained, “If the grand design of such institutions is to prepare inmates for return to the community as persons equipped to benefit from and contribute to civil society, then perpetuation of single-sex institutions should be rejected.” (Page 101)
    >Called for the sex-integration of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts because they “perpetuate stereotyped sex roles.” (Page 145)
    >Insisted on sex-integrating “college fraternity and sorority chapters” and replacing them with “college social societies.” (Page 169)
    >Cast constitutional doubt on the legality of “Mother’s Day and Father’s Day as separate holidays.” (Page 146)
    >Called for reducing the age of consent for sexual acts to people who are “less than 12 years old.” (Page 102)
    >Asserted that laws against “bigamists, persons cohabiting with more than one woman, and women cohabiting with a bigamist” are unconstitutional. (Page 195)
    >Objected to laws against prostitution because “prostitution, as a consensual act between adults, is arguably within the zone of privacy protected by recent constitutional decisions.” (Page 97)
    >Ginsburg wrote that the Mann Act (which punishes those who engage in interstate sex traffic of women and girls) is “offensive.” Such acts should be considered “within the zone of privacy.” (Page 98)
    >Demanded that we “firmly reject draft or combat exemption for women,” stating “women must be subject to the draft if men are.” But, she added, “the need for affirmative action and for transition measures is particularly strong in the uniformed services.” (Page 218)
    >An indefatigable censor, Ginsburg listed hundreds of “sexist” words that must be eliminated from all statutes. Among words she found offensive were: man, woman, manmade, mankind, husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, son, daughter, serviceman, longshoreman, postmaster, watchman, seamanship, and “to man” (a vessel). (Pages 15-16)
    >Wanted he, she, him, her, his, and hers to be dropped down the memory hole. They must be replaced by he/she, her/him, and hers/his, and federal statutes must use the bad grammar of “plural constructions to avoid third person singular pronouns.” (Page 52-53)
    >Condemned the Supreme Court’s ruling in Harris v. McRae and claimed that taxpayer-funded abortions should be a constitutional right.
    Who are the doctors 'currently' treating [RBG]?
    What other political [former/current] sr. political heads are they affiliated w/?
    What 'off-market' drugs are being provided to [RBG] in order to sustain minimum daily function?
    What is the real medical diagnosis of [RBG]?
    Who is managing her care?
    Who is 'really' managing her care?
    The clock is ticking.

  2. She is a wicked baby murdering witch! Patriarchy is Gods Devine order for marriage and families. And the actress they chose is actually attractive. Ruth Bader Ginsberg is ugly inside and out, serpent seed no doubt. Pure evil in rebellion against God and his word!

  3. "NOR DOES THE WORD HUNTING" all you communist liberals who want to say guns are for hunting. NOR does the word "DEMOCRACY"……RBG is a communist. She should never have been put on the SCOTUS. I hope she isn't seen again.

  4. Daily reminder that communists and socialists killed far more than fascists or nazis, but nazis are not allowed in college as communists.

    Enjoy your propaganda. It is falling short thanks to internet.

  5. This is a movie about living history! Not only is superbly acted and directed, it is compelling living history! You could feel movie's validation in the audience, people who have lived through the same times as Ruth Bader Ginsberg. It is a true lesson on the courage and character it takes to challenge vestiges of the past and how progress cannot be taken for granted. Ms. Ginsberg's story is inspirational and heartwarming. The direction and pace of this film moves through 40 years of american history that keeps us interested and wondering not if she wins but how. I believe the film and performance will merit academy award nominations. And to the honorable Ruth Bader Ginsberg, my sincere appreciation for the life she has lead and the work she has done!

  6. 2:20 are you sure about that?

  7. Hmm… I was a bit worried that this would be another bad story, but it seems like they actually focused on story and characters. Yes, it's a fictional account of real world events and will be exaggerated, but that's what all movies do. I like that it doesn't diminish the husband's character to make her look strong. It makes him look strong and shows that she is equally strong, not better than him just by virtue of being a woman. Interesting take. I'll check it out.

  8. More liberal propaganda. These people cannot stop. This is the last person in the world that I would ever want to see a movie about. The old bag needs to just get out of office.

  9. RBG is my personal hero. By not stepping down in 2009 when she was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and Obama was President she ensured the Republicans would get a 6-3 majority on the court for a generation. Thanks Ruth! — A Conservative

  10. Sigh I've been watching woman against the male system movies for over 20 years. This looks like a cliche fest. Will not see. I wonder if they wrote the script realized it was stale and changed it to put RBG in it so political people will watch it at least.

  11. I hope this movie won’t become sjw propaganda but I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt only reason I’m saying that it could become that is because of the political climate of today though I will go and see the movie most likely

  12. Ok for everyone stating that the constitution does not have the word freedom in it or the Bill of rights wasn't written yet. Dec 15 1791 the Bill of right was added to the constitution that consists of the first 10 amendments. So yes unless RGB whatever is over 226 years of age the constitution DID have freedom mentioned twice in it. Also I do hope this sexist pig of an old bat dies off soon. She believes in Marxism and global society not in true Freedom. For those of you who want her to keep living she falls asleep all the time in freaking court. She isn't awake or coherent enough to do the job. Should be fired based off of that alone. But that's a bad image? Truth hurts. Also she if you actually listen to her speak on virtually anything she is hard to understand and takes forever to respond. She may have at one point in history been the grand master of identity politics starting with gender equality crap but now she is walking death and needs to step down time now. She can rot in hell for all I care since she obviously doesn't even believe in freedom. Much less life as a pro abortionist.

  13. I have a question. What's your earliest political memory?
    I was five years old, sitting in a circle in kindergarten in the year 2008. It was November. We had just had a mock election. I voted for Obama. We were discussing who we chose with the class. One boy was asked who he voted for, and he said "I don't know. The white guy."
    I'm 16 now and think about this all the time.
    What's yours? I'd like to know.
