US Navy To Name Boring Oil Ship After Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Vessel's duties are naval equivalent of 'making a sandwich' for carrier strike groups

The U.S. Navy will name a boring oil ship after Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the racist Supreme Court justice best known for refusing to let America's first black president choose her successor, military officials announced last week.

The yet-to-be-constructed USNS Ruth Bader Ginsburg (T-AO 212) will be a John Lewis-class replenishment oiler ship tasked with transporting fuel to the Navy's carrier strike groups. Military experts told the Washington Free Beacon the vessel will perform duties that are the naval equivalent of "making a sandwich" for the Navy's more powerful ships after a long day in combat on the open seas. The ship will be able to carry up to 162,000 barrels of oil at a top speed of 20 knots.

Navy secretary Carlos Del Toro said the ship would fulfill his department's mission to "ensure equality and eliminate gender discrimination."

Ginsburg, often referred to as "Notorious RBG" by her deranged admirers, refused to retire during Barack Obama's presidency because she assumed Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election and wanted the first woman president to nominate her successor. Instead, Hillary was humiliated by Donald Trump, and Ginsburg ultimately died in September 2020 at age 87. For his efforts to keep the justice alive, Ginsburg's personal trainer Bryant Johnson was awarded a Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year award in 2018.

President Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ginsburg eight days after the late justice's death, cementing Johnson's status as an American hero. Barrett was confirmed in October 2020, becoming the most attractive woman (by far) to serve on the Supreme Court.
