On Thursday, former Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly called bull on woke political correctness. During her Sirius XM radio show, “The Megyn Kelly Show,” Kelly took apart a recent move by the ACLU when commemorating the anniversary of the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The ACLU sent out a tweet commemorating the year anniversary of Ginsburg’s death with a now famous quote of her’s regarding abortion.
But the ACLU took it upon themselves to edit the pronouns in Ginsburg’s quote.
In the tweet, the word “woman,” and the pronouns, “she,” and “her” were changed to “people,” “person’s,” and “their.”
With Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, we lost a champion for abortion and gender equality. And on the anniversary of her death, the fight to protect abortion access is more urgent than ever. pic.twitter.com/vIKadIHouN

‘You Don’t Get To Do That’
After relating the tweeting incident to her audience, Kelly wasted no time ripping the group.
Kelly wrecked the ACLU for “commemorating this woman who spent her whole life fighting for women rights,” and then proceeding to eliminate “women from the equation.”

Kelly continued, saying, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been gone for a year and is in no position to fight back against this editing, which she did not approve or call for and I gotta tell ya it’s pissing me off on so many levels, this is wrong.”
One of Kelly’s guests on the show, criminal defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh, was fine with what the ACLU did, because the group was trying to be “more inclusive.”
Kelly shot back, “Oh Bullsh*t! You don’t get to mess with somebody’s quote to make it more inclusive after the fact and after they are dead.”

The ACLU’s posthumous editing of women’s rights icon Ginsburg recalls another recent woke episode – when far-left ‘Squad’ member Cori Bush used the term “birthing people” during a congressional hearing.
Bush was roundly criticized and critics said she was reducing women, “to a function” by using the term.
Birthing people is a ridiculous term.

Megyn Kelly No Stranger To The Woke Crowd
Megyn Kelly has had her own experiences with the wokerati.
Earlier this month, during an interview with Outkick, Kelly stated she was pulling her sons out of their private school because they were being asked almost on a weekly basis if they were “still sure” they were boys, and that this was not disclosed to parents.
She said of the incidents, “It’s one of those things you find out when your kids come home after the fact. It’s outrageous, it’s confusing, and 100%, abusive.”
Podcast host Bobby Burack asked Kelly about the gender “persuasion” going on in the educational system. Kelly was emphatic that if, “parents with microphones” don’t “stand up against it” then they’re complicit in it.
