Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot was reportedly at a ‘pride’ event when she took the stage and yelled ‘f**k Clarence Thomas’ to the audience. The profanity-ridden rant was caught on camera and shared to social media, getting thousands of comments and criticism, particularly referring to Lightfoot’s inability to fix the crime problem in Chicago.
The failing Democrat Mayor seems unsure of how to tackle the crime problem in Chicago, among other shortcomings, but did not hesitate to serve up a few seconds of her time to call out another politician who was partly responsible for a big Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade that’s sparked liberal unrest across the United States.
Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was seen in public protesting the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. She can be heard yelling for people to head “into the streets” in hopes of sparking a major outburst of protest in what many critics might consider an aggressive response.
AOC used the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade to beg for donations to help support women who wish to have abortions, for lack of better terms. Better put, in Democratic terminology, to help women afford healthcare. She posted the following in a social media post. She said: “Now is the time to organize. New York is a legal abortion state, but people will need help getting here. We have compiled a direct multi-abortion fund link to help people seek the medical care they need.”
AOC said in a previous message: “Overturning Roe and outlawing abortions will never make them go away. It only makes them more dangerous, especially for the poor + marginalized. People will die because of this decision. And we will never stop until abortion rights are restored in the United States of America.”
Maxine Waters also freaked out over the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Waters cussed out the Supreme Court on video and said “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” Many of her constituents haven’t seen anything for years, so this would be nothing new to them.
Waters posted the following messages on social media and they received very little support in the form of likes or retweets:
“Today, I stand in solidarity with the 36 MILLION women being stripped of their right to decide what is best for themselves. We WILL keep fighting!
This is only the beginning of an extreme Republican agenda to take away our personal freedoms, from abortion to contraception, to marriage equality to personal safety.
As a Member of Congress, I’m proud to have voted to protect abortion access. Today’s SCOTUS decision makes it even more clear: we need federal protections for reproductive health. I am committed to continuing this FIGHT: in Congress, in the streets, and at the Ballot Box!
Immediately after the trading frenzy of GameStop & other meme stocks, I said @FSCDems would get to the facts that led to the market volatility. Promise kept! Today, we released our report on our full response & investigation I led. I urge you to read it”
As for the Supreme Court overturn of Roe v Wade, Politico reported: “The Supreme Court has voted to strike down the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO.
The draft opinion is a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision which guaranteed federal constitutional protections of abortion rights and a subsequent 1992 decision — Planned Parenthood v. Casey — that largely maintained the right. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito writes.
“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he writes in the document, labeled as the “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
The full Supreme Court decision/opinion can be read here.
NPR added the following: “Writing for the court majority, Justice Samuel Alito said that the 1973 Roe ruling and repeated subsequent high court decisions reaffirming Roe “must be overruled” because they were “egregiously wrong,” the arguments “exceptionally weak” and so “damaging” that they amounted to “an abuse of judicial authority.”
The decision, most of which was leaked in early May, means that abortion rights will be rolled back in nearly half of the states immediately, with more restrictions likely to follow. For all practical purposes, abortion will not be available in large swaths of the country. The decision may well mean too that the court itself, as well as the abortion question, will become a focal point in the upcoming fall elections and in the fall and thereafter.”
Look for social media to erupt in vocal protests, even from people who can’t or won’t ever get pregnant or be in the position to have an abortion. For example, Maxine Waters is well beyond the age of giving birth and this has no impact on her, but she’s barking like a Democrat to spark hate towards Republicans.
