Simply six minutes after the Supreme Court docket nominee completed her speech, anchor Nicolle Wallace was darkly warning in regards to the Folks of Reward group she is aside of. However even DURING the speech, MSNBC producers felt it essential sufficient to place it in an on-screen graphic. 

Subsequent to a biography with issues like “Born and raised in New Orleans,” “married with seven kids,” the MSNBC graphic alerted, “A Catholic, Barrett is a member of Christian group Folks of Reward.” Think about if the cable community had taken the difficulty to inform audiences that somebody was Jewish, Muslim or one other religion? 

Six minutes after the speech ended, Wallace started what’s going to possible be an endless assault on the choose’s religion: 

 

 

When choose Barrett was… underneath scrutiny for her final appointment, data got here out about her time and her relationship with a Christian group known as Folks of Reward.

Members of the group, Folks of Reward, swear a lifelong oath of loyalty, known as a covenant to at least one one other, and are assigned and held accountable to a private adviser, known as a head for males and a handmaid for girls. 

Speaking to former Barack Obama Solicitor Common, she teed up the assault on Barrett’s religion: 

The group teaches that the husbands are the heads of their wives and may take authority over the household. As a result of the push that Donald Trump feels, Neil Katyal, due to the best way the method is so condensed, these kinds of issues, grow to be a part of our protection even on a day there is a ceremony within the Rose Backyard. What do you suppose the road of questioning will likely be about that affiliation? 

To his credit score, Katyal had no style for a non secular assault. So he tried to vary the subject: “I believe the push to verify somebody is itself going to be an issue…. With respect to this particular factor about this group, I do not know that that is actually going to come back up. And I don’t know that it ought to. I believe what needs to be the main focus of the dialogue needs to be her views.”
