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.
“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.

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?”

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé
Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose. In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting
Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…
