“Congratulations Amy Coney Barrett on becoming the 5th woman appointed to the Supreme Court since its inception in 1789,” the post read.
The Girl Scouts quickly deleted the tweet after facing backlash from Democrats, such as “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.
What kind of patch does one earn for uplifting a woman who is the antithesis of justice? https://t.co/Z7TfkymPfL

“Earlier today, we shared a post highlighting the five women who have been appointed to the Supreme Court. It was quickly viewed as a political and partisan statement which was not our intent and we have removed the post,” the organization said in a follow-up post.
Girl Scouts of the USA is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization. We are neither red nor blue, but Girl Scout GREEN. We are here to lift up girls and women.

But that didn’t stop liberals from trashing the organization and vowing to boycott it.
My favorite reaction to the girl scout cookies thing is “yeah, good that you deleted it. I’m still boycotting your ass, though. Blasphemy is blasphemy.” pic.twitter.com/ETkkzfY4eC

Gross. Please keep reminding me why I boycott your cookies. My three daughters will never be Girl Scouts. Ever.

And there goes the Samoas order this year. Just saved me a hundred bucks. Guess I’ll finally try my hand at this copycat recipe https://t.co/DcEkP5A7jo
