Amy Schumer: Voting For Kavanaugh Means ‘Women Don’t Matter’

October 5th, 2018 3:59 PM

Actress Amy Schumer rose to fame after starring in a 2015 movie as a young magazine writer caught up in numerous romantic misadventures. And, while not romantic in nature, her misadventures appear to have continued in real life.

The most recent example came Oct. 4. Schumer, who attended a giant anti-Kavanaugh march at the Capitol that day, was abuzz with feminist quips, the most salient of which was, “No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down … We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter.”

That quote, reported by Newsweek, preceded Schumer’s detainment alongside fellow feminist, model Emily Ratajkowski. Benny Johnson of The Daily Caller tweeted footage of Schumer verbally agreeing she wanted to be arrested:

The nation has been treated, by the progressive press and their interest group allies, to the constant rants of the feminist monolith as it pretends to speak for all women of America. Schumer’s words indicate her ignorance of the many women who do support Judge Kavanaugh and say that the contentious nomination process has been extremely unfair. Her words also overlook larger ideological reasons of why women choose to back the Supreme Court nominee over the allegations.

Schumer’s claims that she is a survivor of sexual assault should not be ignored or belittled. But her attempt to project her views onto all women of America are, like her first movie, a Trainwreck.
