It didn’t take long for the Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade to become part of Donald Trump’s cult rally ranting. On Saturday he included the decision in his spiel before his glassy-eyed disciples, and took credit for it saying that it was “only made possible because I delivered” three ultra-partisan justices. For which credit actually belongs to Mitch McConnell.

It’s important to note that the judges Trump is so proud of were put on the court by a president who lost the popular vote twice, was impeached twice, and tried to overthrow the U.S. government. And their ruling defied the will of the American people who are rarely more united on an issue than they are about preserving the reproductive choice rights provided by Roe vs Wade.

Trump held his rally in Illinois in order to support the reelection of Rep. Mary Miller. In her remarks she also addressed the Court’s ruling and praised Trump for his role in securing it. She fawned…
“President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”

It isn’t often that such unbridled honesty is expressed in political speeches. Miller’s remarks are consistent with the right-wing agenda articulated by the “white replacement” theory (a favorite of Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson) that fear mongers about an imaginary plot by Democrats to import dark-skinned foreigners to overwhelming the white electorate.
However, Miller later recognized the potential for backlash as she was severely chastised for her comments. So naturally, she had her spokesperson release a statement asserting that it was gaffe. “You can clearly see she is reading off a piece of paper,” he lied, saying that “she meant to say ‘right to life.'” But there are two things wrong with that sorry attempt at an excuse.
First of all, it isn’t reasonably possible to mistake the written words “right to life” for “white life.” They don’t look the least bit similar. She would have been better off saying it was a verbal gaffe, rather than a misreading.
Secondly, how does she explain the fact that the audience cheered effusively for what she actually said aloud? They couldn’t know if the written words were any different than the ones she spoke. They heard her say “victory for white life,” and they were thrilled by the sentiment that is so closely aligned with their racist principles.
Furthermore, Trump was standing right behind her when she it. He didn’t flinch, nor try to correct her. In fact, he smiled broadly with pride for his “white life” victory. And Miller didn’t attempt to correct herself either. Which should come as no surprise since she is the same person who once said that “Hitler was right on one thing. He said whoever has the youth, has the future.” That was a apparently her approval for emulating Hitler’s program of indoctrinating kids with propaganda. Part of the Republican “family values” platform?

Given that Miller’s explanation doesn’t hold water, that the audience cheered wildly, and that no corrections were made at the time, it’s impossible to assume anything other than that it was intended. And the walk back only took place after they were flooded with criticism. Now they are trying to dig themselves out of a hole that they themselves dug with years of shoveling racist rhetoric. And they’re just upset that their true face is, once again, being seen by all.

I saw this post on Al Jazeera which I enjoy watching. Until grit your teeth on adderall Trump spoke. I just hope he continues to push himself into that rabbit hole.
“…want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”
No way this was a misspoken comment. 1 of the bad goals of the white-wingers,, that goes against what America has always been & used to be proud of, is a “melting pot”. And though there has been trouble at times with making it work, over time there’s been a sort of “blending” into ‘one people’ ~ Americans.
It was part of ‘the Great Experiment’, along with a democratically elected gov’t. “Life, Liberty & Pursuit of Happiness”, Equality (in theory), & personal freedoms.. Arlington Cemetery is filled with those who gave their lives defending those freedoms! If you haven’t been there, all I can say is pictures can’t portray the vast rolling hills of white crosses where the bodies of dead soldiers lie ~ far as the eye can see! Soldiers who bravely fought & died for those freedoms. Being free to be who we are, as long as doesn’t infringe on rights of others, or hurt other people — free to find our “happiness” — it was a novel idea & we spread it around the world. (Sometimes, whether they wanted it or not.)
We’ve made a lot of mistakes along the way, but ALWAYS we learned & kept moving forward. UNTIL NOW! Now, we’re officially regressing & it’s ugly!
The right-wing is more accurately, the white-wing & thankfully the minority in numbers of us. They are not right at all, but are predominantly white. Old white leaders who foment hate & are determined to take us backward, to take away our rights, including Right to Vote for our leaders, have no business FORCING their own personal beliefs on everyone else!! That is the OPPOSITE of being free to choose how to live, for ourselves! Being anti-this & anti-that is simply their opinions & it is Anti-American for them to shove it down our throats!! Every so often someone lets it slip out their lips… consider that a warning of what’s to come, IF NOT STOPPED. Immediately! They planned for that by stacking SCOTUS with their own people. Improperly. It is no longer Supreme Court ~ it’s just another purely political strongarm of the Party who tried to overthrow Biden B4 his Inauguration & is cutrently fixing elections so they cannot lose! SCOTUS no longer rules by The Constitution; it’s totally partisan, political. It has always kept politics in check & served Justice. NO MORE! And they’ve just begun on turning around all the things that far white-wingers don’t like. Dictators will dictate & rule OVER the people — it’s what they do. The question is, do we let them do that here?
If you want to be a white-wing authoritarian country, where your rights are takrn away & you will do AS THEY SAY, then don’t bother to get out & vote in Nov ~ just sit back & do nothing. But… If you give a damn about democracy, our freedoms & the future of America The Beautiful, you’d better fight back — with your VOICE & your VOTE!! There is NO time left to waste!! Our personal choices, freedom to live & love with our hearts, protect our children from sadistic tyrants, remain a free people & more, deprnds on it!
