As you may or may not be aware, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is a feminist hero. She is your new role model and you want to be just like her. 

Listen to her explain why in an interview with CNN over the weekend at an Atlanta-area Easter basket giveaway.

“When I tell you that outpouring of women… especially African American women who will just say, ‘We are so proud. You are such a good representative of us.’ But I would be lying to say it’s only African American women. I have had Caucasian women, Asian women, Indian women. 

I told Jeff one day, I didn’t think I was the face of the feminist movement, but somehow I became it. And I think that women feel like women are treated differently when they’re professionals and they’re proud to see someone that is strong and trying to do the right job. 

Certainly, I am flawed like every human being is flawed. My father has a saying that only one perfect man walked the face of the earth and they crucified him. I am not a perfect human being, but what I am is a hardworking human being, and a human being that loves the community I serve and who understands this seat does not belong to me. It belongs to the people. And as long as I’m here, I’m going to try to do the job in a way that is honorable.”

– Fani Willis, March 23, 2024

Have you ever watched the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice? You know, the one with Colin Firth? Fani reminds me of the character who is like, ‘I only know what my friends say about me. My friends all say that I’m the brilliant one. I would never say that about myself. I just know that everyone around me really looks up to me.’ Who does that?

One of the three prosecutors who are going after former President Donald Trump criminally is out there owning the fact that she is really leaning into how people perceive her and look up to her because she is so fearless and won’t stand down.

This is a woman who was broke when she took office. She admitted to taking campaign funds to use for personal use, which is illegal. Then she started an affair with a married man. Let’s not forget their affair began in 2019, according to the testimony of Robin Yeartie and text messages of Terrence Bradley. And Nathan Wade was still married in 2022 when they claim the relationship began. In fact, he is not yet officially divorced to this day. She willingly took Wade’s money to travel to Aruba, Belize, and more.

Willis took the stand and lied about all of it, so she could keep her job and continue going after Trump in something that has been a BS prosecution from the start. 

So no, Fani, you are not a feminist icon. It’s a no. You are not an icon of any kind, and you are likely to be out of a job and, possibly, a bar license soon.
