‘Women Against Matt Gaetz’ Group Growing In Leaps In Bounds With The Goal Of Defeating Him In November

Two days ago, a group of women who have dedicated themselves to making sure Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is defeated in the November midterm election formed a group under the banner of “Women Against Matt Gaetz.”

In 48 hours time, the group has grown to over 1,300 members and continues to expand as Gaetz’s recent comments regarding women and abortion are coming back to bite him right on his butt.

WEAR-TV reports:

“Women have had enough of him and had enough his mouth speaking derogatory to women who are simply expressing their rights,” Samantha Hope Herring, Women Against Matt Gaetz creator said.

A new Facebook group called “Women Against Matt Gaetz” is gaining followers by the hundreds.

“It has gone from us just creating it to like 1,300 in two days,” Herring said. “By speaking up, we can organize together to vote him out. That’s the number one thing we want to see happen. And we also are going to be asking Congress to censure Matt Gaetz.”

As you may know, Gaetz spoke last week at a conservative youth conference (we all know how fond Matt allegedly is of young girls) and made insulting remarks about those who are in favor of abortion rights:

“Have you watched these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies? The people are just disgusting. Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?”

“Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb. These people are odious from the inside out. They’re like 5′2″, 350 pounds, and they’re like, ‘Give me my abortions or I’ll get up and march and protest.’

“A few of them need to get up and march — they need to get up and march for like an hour a day. Swing those arms, get the blood pumpin’, maybe mix in a salad.”

Kathy White, Okaloosa County Democratic Women’s Club president, said she’s also upset that Gaetz voted against a bill this week that would have helped combat human trafficking, the very same crime he’s suspected of having committed with multiple underage girls:

“Women all feel strongly about their rights being trampled on and having no respect even Matt has a mother. Can you imagine how embarrassed she is? All people have mothers and all mothers are women.”

A spokesperson for Gaetz later released a statement which reads:

“Hundreds of women for Matt Gaetz showed up to rallies today in real life. Woke activists sharing hate online aren’t our focus. Matt Gaetz is pro-life and wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Abortion Congress GOP WTF?!

Republican Congressman Asks Witness If Women Can Give Birth To Tacos Or Turtles

During a hearing on abortion today in the House of Representatives, Republican Congressman Jody Hice (GA) — who was named as one of the GOP co-conspirators who met with failed, one-term president Donald Trump to help plan the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol — asked a witness if it was possible for a woman to give birth to a taco or turtle.

Mediaite notes:

Hice is a committed pro-life advocate who was trying to make the case that life starts at conception. He was also trying to score some cheap political points, and perhaps go viral, by ridiculing First Lady Jill Biden.

The First Lady apologized for a ham-fisted metaphor in which she celebrated the diversity of Hispanic-Americans by citing the unique nature of “breakfast tacos” in San Antonio. Many blamed her for calling Hispanics tacos —she did not — but it was a weird comment anyway.

That led Hice to ask Fatima Goss, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center:

“Are there any instances of a woman giving birth to something that is not a human being, a baby like a turtle, or as our first lady suggested, a breakfast taco. I mean, is there any instance where other than a human being has been born?”

Goss Graves told the congressman:

“Well, there are definitely are instances where people have stillborn.”

Not long after that exchange, Hice inquired:

 “There are many people who cannot live without insulin. Does that mean we should kill those people who cannot live without insulin? Well, there’s no other intelligence. This is my time.”

After more back and forth with Goss Graves, Hice then added this almost incomprehensible rejoinder:

“The question comes down to when does a person have the right to life and when does a person have the right to health care? And we can argue all day that it’s that abortion is health care. It certainly is not health care to the baby. Health care protects life and abortion, by definition, boy’s life. It is not health care. But if we’re talking about a person, which we are. We’re not talking a taco. We’re talking a person in the womb.”

Here’s a modest proposal considering the lack of intelligence in the questions asked by Congressman Hice: Let’s neuter him so his ignorance isn’t allowed to spread to another generation.

Abortion Congress GOP WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Claims She’s Worried Abortion Will Produce ‘Genocide In The Black Population’

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) — aka the “Jewish space laser” nut — the reason she’s being such an asshole on a daily basis as a member of Congress is because she wants to eliminate all abortions in the United States.

Appearing on Real America’s Voice, Greene tried to explain away her verbal attack on her Democratic colleagues on the steps of the Capitol last Friday by suggesting that her vitriol had been about abortion:

“I said, ‘Are you happy you passed a bill that babies can be slaughtered up until the day of birth?’ There were so many Democrats and they have their signs: ‘Build Back Better Women.’ How on Earth is it making women better by creating a law where they can kill a baby in their womb even though the baby is about to be born? How are we building back better women when we’re turning men into women?”

She continued:

“And so I just started speaking out. Most of them weren’t saying anything to me but it was Debbie Dingell — like a dingleberry — she started fussing at me, telling me I needed to be civil to my colleagues and act the way I would act going to church.”

Of course, it’s highly unlikely that Greene even goes to church. And if she does, she certainly hasn’t learned anything about the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

But it was what Greene said next that proved her blatant hypocrisy and exposed her words as lies:

“They believe that life is so important that they are willing to shut down our economy, force children to stay home from school so no one dies from Covid. All of them voted for this bill that is actually producing genocide in the black population because they put Planned Parenthood mostly in these black-dominated neighborhoods and, you know, they’re just pushing abortion and birth control.

“When we’re passing bills like that, no one in here believes in God. We’re fighting against this and I refuse to be quiet anymore. It’s not go-along and get-along.”

Does Marjorie Taylor Greene expect us to believe that she gives a diddly damn about black people in the United States? She wanted to start a caucus to advocate for the “Anglo-Saxon political tradition,” as CNN reported in April:

Punchbowl News obtained a flier promoting the new caucus, which calls for a “common respect for uniquely Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and pushes a series of conspiracy theories about election integrity. The flier also outlined a nativist argument warning that “mass immigration” poses a threat to “the long-term existential future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and a unique identity.”

Does it sound like Greene cares about black people? Of course she doesn’t. She’s a racist like the vast majority of the GOP. She just wants an issue she can run on in 2022 when she tries to get reelected.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a cancer on the Congress and the country. Let’s hope she gets beaten in the midterm elections.

Abortion Donald Trump Supreme Court

Trump Takes Credit For Texas Anti-Abortion Law And Sounds Like He Believes He’s Still POTUS

Now that the Supreme Court is finally ruling the way he wants them to, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump is patting himself on the back so hard it’s a wonder he hasn’t dislocated his shoulder.

Speaking with Sharyl Attkisson of right-wing Sinclair Broadcasting, Trump beamed with pride as he took credit for the Supreme Court refusing to strike down the restrictive anti-abortion law that went into effect in Texas this week, remarking:

“We do have a Supreme Court that’s a lot different than it was. Before it was acting very strangely and I think probably not in the interest of our country.”

Keep in mind this is the very same Supreme Court that Trump chided with derision when they refused to take up any of the bogus election lawsuits filed by him and his allies when it became clear he had been badly beaten by President Joe Biden, tweeting in December of last year:

“This is a great and disgraceful miscarriage of justice. The people of the United States were cheated, and our Country disgraced. Never even given our day in Court!”

A month later, the loser former president was booted off Twitter permanently for his endless lies and conspiracy theories about the election.

While he was at it, Trump also told Attkisson that he was “studying” the high court’s ruling on the Texas abortion law:

“The ruling was very complex and also probably temporary. I think other things will happen and that will be the big deal and the big picture. So we’ll see what will happen. But we’re studying the ruling and we’re studying also what they’ve done in Texas.

“We’ll be announcing something over the next week or two weeks.”

Yeah, a guy who hates to read so much that his intelligence briefings had to be delivered with little more than charts and photos is going to be “studying” a Supreme Court ruling.

Be sure and catch the crap about “announcing” something over the next few weeks. This fool still thinks he’s president! Did he not get the memo? Does he think the White House has been moved to Florida and he’s still running the country? If so, it’s going to come as one hell of a surprise when he tries to board Air Force One and what’s waiting for him is one of his ancient jets with his name emblazoned on it. Provided, of course, he hasn’t had to sell all his planes to pay the loans that are coming due soon.

As usual, everything is all about Donald. That’s the way the world looks when you’re a delusional, addled old man who could well wind up spending the rest of his life in prison.

Tech Writer Believes She’s Found A Foolproof Way To Shut Down Texas’ Abortion Snitch Website

One of the most disgusting facets of the new Texas anti-abortion law is that it includes a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who snitches on a woman who is attempting to get an abortion in the state.

Texas Right to Life has set up a website which allows people to report women who might be in violation of the new law, but a tech writer believes she’s found a way to get the website taken down once and for all.

Tech journalist Shoshana Wodinsky penned an article for Gizmodo in which she suggests the best way to have the Texas Right to Life website removed from the internet is by reporting it to the registrar of the domain name:

“In this case, the registrar is GoDaddy — a company that’s historically known for being kind of terrible all around, but also one with a slew of rules for what its sites can be used for. Among the rules are that sites cannot ‘collect or harvest’ information about people without their consent, or do anything that ‘violates the privacy or publicity rights of another User or any other person or entity, or breaches any duty of confidentiality that you owe to another User or any other person or entity.'”

Reporting the medical procedures of other people would certainly be a violation of GoDaddy’s rules, and that means there’s a way to battle this problem with the power of the internet, Wodinsky writes:

“GoDaddy has its own specific tipline set up for users to reach when they see a site falling afoul of the company’s privacy rules: privacy@godaddy.com. People can also file out an abuse report with the platform, and let GoDaddy know that they’ve come across ‘content that displays personal information.’ While the examples that GoDaddy gives in the form are sites listing people’s social security or credit card numbers, the Texas tipline is a pretty clear privacy violation of a different sort.”

In other words, it’s up to us to flood GoDaddy with reports regarding the Texas abortion snitch tipline. We have internet access and that’s really all that’s required to make a difference in this case.

Granted, we can’t personally repeal the Texas anti-abortion law, but we can damn sure give its enablers some major headaches along the way.

Ladies and gentlemen: Time to grab our computers and phones and make a difference. We can do this!
