This story is almost a week old, but I only heard about it the other day, so I wanted to comment on the issue. Shortly after the leak of the possible overturn of Roe vs. Wade, F. Joe Biden said something stupid again, claiming “the MAGA crowd” was the most extreme political organization in American history.”
We have zero desire to obsess about this prez’s malarkey as much as liberal outlets did over the last guy, but he’s sure making it hard. The latest from President Joe Biden: “This MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history. Recent American history.”
Not the Ku Klux Klan, not the Weather Underground, but Trump supporters. Imagine condemning half the country because they do not share F. Joe Biden’s views.
For starters, the leaked draft opinion takes great pains to explain why Roe is unique, its reversal is no reason to expect a similar undoing of the gay-marriage ruling and other expansions of Americans’ constitutional rights.
Second, Biden conveniently forgets (or, who knows with him, maybe he really doesn’t recall) that he himself was anti-Roe for at least a decade. “I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far,” he told the Washingtonian in 1974. In ’82, he backed a constitutional amendment to undo the decision and let states decide, as the draft ruling prescribes.
Third, how is MAGA anti-gay, when Donald Trump not only literally waved the rainbow flag at the Republican National Convention but as president appointed the highest-ever openly gay official, Richard Grenell?
Let’s be honest; every single Democrat president in my lifetime has hated Republicans to the core, but few of them came right out and admitted it. This dementia-addled moron hates half the country, and he has no problem saying so.
This illegitimate POTUS will go down in history as one of the worst presidents in American history.
