Actress and extremely outspoken leftist Alyssa Milano has really been doing her best to get involved in hashtag activism, hoping to revitalize her career with her new found, unabashed “wokeness,” which is really just a desperate ploy to regain a bit of relevance.
Unfortunately, a lot of the comments she makes, especially on Twitter end up making her look ridiculous, like any other celebrity attempting to speak on issues they don’t understand in order to get a refill on the whole 15 minutes of fame deal.
Well, it seems Milano has really stepped in it now, as she decided to weigh in on the Fourteenth Amendment not being intended for women. That didn’t go over well. At all.
The constitutional debate got rolling with Milano accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan (who happens to be a Republican) of supposedly not believing that women should have equal protection under the Constitution (h/t Twitchy).
“I asked for a meeting with @SpeakerRyan today—to discuss equality for women and the Equal Rights Amendment—he declined,” tweeted Milano. “96% of Americans believe that women should be protected under the constitution. He is the 4%. #ERANow”

That post prompted this reply quoting the 14th Amendment:
Honestly, I cannot see any reason any citizen needs to do anything. I know the foolish patriarchs feel they can assume women citizens are different.
Still, the 14th Amend uses the term "person", not "men". Therefore, it has been UNCONSTITUTIONAL to deny equality to all.

Milano responded by asserting that the 14th Amendment was “clearly” not intended to apply to women because they couldn’t vote when it was written.
“Hi. The 14th amendment was included in the constitution before women even had the right to vote so clearly it was not meant to apply to us,” she wrote.

Here’s how others responded to her statement:
What part of All Persons excludes woman?
Take a civics class

Okay, if it didn't exclude them why do we have a 19th Amendment?

Hi. The 1st amendment was included in the constitution before radio, television, and the internet existed so clearly it was not meant to apply to them.

Please name the right that men have that women do not have. Please be specific and cite proof.
— Howard Roark Laughed (@Major_Skidmark) June 6, 2018
The 14th amendment specifically refers to states being required to allow all men 21 and up, to vote, or they wouldn't get Congressional representation.
Gender is singled out for that one issue only. If the 14th in total was only to apply to men, that would have been up front.

Look, all American citizens have the right to speak their mind, to share their worldview and attempt to persuade others of its validity without worrying about being shut down by the government. That’s the First Amendment in all of its glory.
However, just because you can speak your mind, doesn’t mean you should speak your mind. Especially if you have no earthly idea what you’re actually talking about.
In other words, if Milano is going to engage in politics, perhaps a study course on the Constitution should be high a high priority on her “to do list?”

Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned
It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this.
There are very, very few things in this world that are more despicable than hate crimes or hate speech, but faking one for attention is certainly on that short, short list.
That’s exactly what actor Jussie Smollett is being accused of this week after police interrogated two extras from the set of Empire, who claim that the actor paid them a significant amount of money to “attack” him, yelling racial and homophobic slurs.
Smollett’s credibility is falling apart, and police would like to have another word with the actor ASAP.
Now, evidence of Smollett’s premeditation is coming to light, and it doesn’t look good for the Fox actor.
Empire actor Jussie Smollett “concocted” a “staged attacked” against himself after receiving a racist letter addressed to him failed to evoke a “bigger reaction,” a source tells CBS 2.
“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” one source told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards, who reported “other sources corroborated that information.”
A letter contained “white powder” was delivered on January 22 to a Chicago set where Empire was filming in the days leading up to the alleged staged assault. In a statement to CNN, Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi confirmed a HAZMAT team scrambled to Cinespace Studios, where the program was being shot, after the letter was found.
It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this, and Smollett’s future in the industry isn’t looking too good.
MAGA Hoaxer Could Face Serious Jail Time for Fake Hate Crime
And the liberals use to call *us* deplorable?!
The lengths to which the liberal left will go in order to disparate President Donald Trump have been disturbing, to say the least.
We have seen no shortage of wild and violent attempts to disparage The Donald. What began with Kathy Griffin’s insane decapitation photoshoot has morphed into very real violence, and very fake news.
The latest attempt by Hollywood to delegitimize the President comes to us from Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who police now believe paid two actors to “assault” him, while shouting slogans tied to President Trump.
Smollett is claiming to have no foreknowledge of the attack, but police aren’t convinced. Their investigation into the incident has revealed that the Nigerian brothers who claim Smollett put them up to it even tried to drum up the anti-MAGA hat tropes as well.
Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.
The brothers made the purchase on the weekend of January 25.
They also bought two red plain hats that they wore during the alleged attack, according to sources close to the investigation.
Police believe that the red hats were purchased at a local beauty supply store in the Uptown section of Chicago.
Thanks to his deliberate and deceitful act, Smollett could find himself behind bars for a substantial amount of time.
Filing a false report to police in the State of Illinois is considered an act of disorderly conduct, which is a Class 4 felony.
That means that anyone found guilty could face between one and three years in prison.
By law, the crime of disorderly conduct is committed in Illinois by anyone who ‘transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed.’
Chicago Police have indicated a desire to re-interview Smollett regarding the incident.
