Wednesday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, racist host Joy Reid called it “scandalous” that Supreme Court Associate Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas were on the Supreme Court deciding abortion cases.
Reid said, “I feel like in some ways Republican nominations have either been a bait-and-switch on black folks, as when Clarence Thomas was nominated to replace the great Thurgood Marshall. So they’re saying, ‘Here look, we’re going to give you a black person, but it’s somebody whose agenda on the court is going to be antithetical to everything Thurgood Marshall stood for,’ which is also why it makes me happy to see Sherrilyn Ifill’s name on that list because she sits on that role at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
“It’s all punitive or highly stringently ideological regardless of their moral qualifications,” propagandist Reid continued. “You think of a Kavanaugh and the same with Clarence Thomas, the things they were accused of. The fact that that court decides whether women have control over our bodies, with two men on it like that, is scandalous for a democracy.”
First, there is not a shred of evidence that Kavanaugh and Thomas were guilty of the false accusations leveled against them by the Democrat smear machine, but Reid is suggesting they’re guilty — because personally destroying opponents is how Democrats do politics.
Second, the abortion issue is not, as the left has insisted for 50 years, about controlling women’s bodies but about respecting and saving the lives of the unborn, who are individual persons in their own right. Reid knows this but the left cannot afford to concede this commonsense point, or their pro-abortion argument collapses like a house of cards.
