Conservatives couldn’t contain their jubilation yesterday after the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
The worst of those in right-wing media took the opportunity to gloat and demean women. Steven Crowder, a former Fox News contributor may have gone farthest saying that it’s a bad day for “whores.”
The commentator told his audience:
“‘One of the most sacred decisions there is and that such decisions should remain between patients and their doctors. Today’s Supreme Court opinion will live in infamy.’ They use this language. Do you know what that’s from? Do you know what that’s from? ‘A day that will live in infamy.’ Comment, do you know what that’s from? It’s the speech of Pearl Harbor. Giving the states the rights to put some limitations or the states the right to have no limitations on abortions, they are comparing to Pearl Harbor, which before 9/11 was the most devastating attack on American soil. And some people are going to be surprised why it gets violent this weekend?See Also
Will live in infamy as a step backwards for women’s rights and human rights. Well, I think sorry, you misspelled whores. It will be a step backward for whores. Pronounced two syllables, whores. And what do I mean by that? I mean women who aren’t sexual responsible and then decide that they are going to abort a human life. Yep, yep, may not like it, not saying all women are whores, but people who think that it’s a necessity, abortion, otherwise you cannot be a responsible female adult or someone is violating your rights: Whore.”
