Well said!

 


The Daily Beast:


If the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and abortion is immediately illegal for half of all Americans who might need it, women will die. And the women who will suffer the most are those who are already on the precipice—the poor, the Black and brown, the young, the abused. 

The sidewalks adjacent to a powerful person’s property are not more sacred than 73 million women’s bodies. And yet, from the way some voices have responded to protests outside of SCOTUS homes, you’d swear the real victim here was Brett Kavanaugh. 

Fox News spent years in the bootlicking service of Donald Trump—who once told a crowd of police officers that they should be rougher with suspects as they arrest them; who routinely called for violence against the press; and whose Big Lie about election fraud led to ordinary election officials being harassed at their homes by MAGA mobs calling for their blood. This is the same Fox News that has routinely minimized the violence of January 6, 2021 as “tourism.” 

But now that peaceful protests are targeting the public streets and sidewalks outside Supreme Court justices’ houses, Fox News is very worried about the safety implications! 

But the liberals! They’re cheering! 

Stop the presses—today’s a day when conservatives aren’t getting mad about Mr. Potato Head’s gender identity, the green M&M making them less horny, Disney turning the kids gay, and Harry Styles wearing a dress. No, today’s when conservatives are angry that those cheering-ass liberals are standing on residential sidewalks exercising a constitutionally guaranteed right at a match-point moment.

If the left keeps pushing this mob rule BS…there's never any law enforcement when they Riot, no justice then that thing of no justice/no peace is going to come into play in a way that they will not be comfy with. People will take so much and then all hell will break loose.

Hey Angelo's Place,

We never heard a complaint from you when a mob of Trumpers attacked the US Capitol, injured, maimed, and caused the deaths of police officers, and spread their feces all over the Capitol building because they didn't like the outcome of a free and fair election, and listened to Trump's inciting an insurrection.

So please be advised that your comment is duly noted and laughed at.

When the Supreme Court of the United States decides that different states can have different laws for women, the states aren’t united anymore.

And you can thank the Orange sh*t Trump for this and the fascist takeover of the Republican Party by anti-democracy thugs.

It's not "pro-life," it's "pro-fetus." Once the baby is born, they wash their hands of it.

Kayleigh McEnany claims on Fox News that the "vast majority" of Democrats are going to vote today for abortion "in the 10th month where a mom is literally giving birth."


Kayleigh McEnany is a stupid, evil woman. There is no such thing as a 10 month abortion.

Why do Trumpublicans lie like this? She was on FAUX NOOZ and the folks who watch that trash will believe her lies. Just like her former boss, McEnany is a shameless liar.

Time to review the facts and opinions that the Supreme Court originally decided in favor of Roe/Wade including the personal accounts of woman's suffering who could not legally get an abortion.

Shaw, as part of the LBGTQA+ community I almost expect the lies from the Christian Nationalist crowd, after all lying to us 'sinners' doesn't count, amirite?

Christian Nationalists can't see beyond their goal of Seven Mountains Dominionism, they are target fixated and really want their Apocalypse. As Authoritarians and Fascists they consider anyone who doesn't agree with their ChristoFascist ways as not really human and vermin so yeah, lying isn't really a sin because it's not like they lied to one of their own.

This isn't a new phenomenon, it happened before and it's happening again. Why? Power. Greed. And a total lack of empathy.

Here's my take - I don't have to like my neighbor to love them (unconditional love as Christ taught). I don't have to like my neighbor to advocate for their rights. We The People means all of us and if there is one person who does not have the same rights as the rest, then none of us have rights. I know I'm not alone in this take, most on your blog exemplify these ideas.

Please don’t MAKE UP STUPID STORIES, and Lies!

Angelo's Place,

I don't know why you left that request here. Donald Trump doesn't read my blog.

A Trump Chump talking about lies? Too funny. I guess irony is lost on those poor idiotic slobs.
