Abstract：Justice Amy Coney Barrett is the first pro-life woman Supreme Court Justice. This marks the tidal change of identity politics in the US. As the Left is losing traction among women and minorities, they slip into the tendency of totalitarianism – the same playbook of the CCP.

Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed as the latest Associate Justice of the Supreme Court last night, just days before the presidential election of 2020. Unlike the Kavanaugh hearings, the Democrats did not pull a stunt this time to block her from sitting on the Supreme Court.
Not much stood out during this confirmation process compared with the last one. However, Senator Lindsey Graham said something that really struck a cord – “This is the first time in American history that we’ve nominated a woman who is unashamedly pro-life and embraces her faith without apology, and she is going to the court.”
So much of our politics today is based on race, gender, sexual orientation or any minority identity. The political Left’s playbook is to champion the rights of these groups so that they could win votes to advance their own agenda. They have been successfully doing this for years. But the tide is turning and yet they are still playing the same old game.
As an ethnic minority, I have never questioned the sincerity of the Left’s movement at its inception. The women’s rights movement, the civil rights movement and the gay rights movement have all contributed to a more tolerant and free society of ours today. It is safe to say that without their efforts, we would be struggling with the same issues way more than we are accustomed to now. And for that, we do owe our thanks to the pioneers of these issues. But that does not mean we owe our lives or our allegiance to them.
The political Left today is nothing like the political Left of the past. Their logic is no longer to gather dissenting voices to change established norms. Instead, they have become the establishment and they demand allegiance.
This syndrome is perhaps best illustrated when Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, a member of the famous Squad, said: “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice.” Joe Biden said it another way: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” What the Left is saying is that if you are person of color, just shut up and listen, and you better damn well embrace our leftist agenda.
Enter Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the first ever pro-life woman sitting on the Supreme Court. Woman and pro-life? That sounds like an oxymoron. The female icons we have created over the last few decades have all been pro-choice: Hilary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, not to mention the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Whether pro-life or pro-choice, isn’t it up to the individual to make that decision? There has always been pro-life women just like there has always been conservative African Americans, gay Christians, etc. It is our mainstream media that has so conditioned us to think in a particular way that we find certain things normal, others odd. It is the same mainstream media that propels the Left’s agenda and elevates them to establishment status.
On the surface, there is nothing wrong about the hand-and-glove relationship between the media and the Left. But when all the Left cares about is grabbing power – with zero regard for the individual, not only does their message become empty, it eventually morphs into totalitarianism, censoring our speeches and demanding our conformity.
For those of us as part of the Whistleblower Movement and New Federal State of China, this feels eerily familiar.
The CCP claims to be the champion of all Chinese people; the CCP says all Chinese are the same and think the same; the CCP does not allow any dissenting voices; and the CCP demands everyone’s submission.
No wonder they have lost the trust of the free-thinking Chinese people.
If the Left continues down their current path here in the US, they too will lose the trust of the very same people they claim to represent. Rappers like Kanye West and 50 Cent endorsing Trump are just the beginning. The first pro-life woman Supreme Court Justice is just the beginning.
We are perfectly capable of thinking for ourselves. We don’t need the Left to think or speak for us.
A new tide is coming. Gradual at first, suddenly everything changes.
