Radical leftist commentators have been having a difficult time handling last month’s Supreme Court decision reversing Roe v. Wade, but have eagerly turned their anger toward motivating their voting base for the upcoming midterm elections.
Frequent MSNBC guest Elie Mystal said on Monday that Republican lawmakers like Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) are “fundamentalist Christians” who want an American “theocracy” staging “witch trials.”
Mystal blasted the court on its rulings on guns and prayer in addition to abortion. He said that the court is acting as a religious body because the concept that life begins at conception is a “fundamentally Christian belief.” He added his belief that Jews, Muslims, and other faiths do not believe life begins at conception.
He went on to say that America has “tried doing the New World the way Lauren Boebert suggests.” He said that led to witch trials and people dying. Mystal said the current Supreme Court is “not far away from that again.”
He said that the “type of people” like Boebert and Greene want to go after him personally because he was “speaking with the devil” and helping women to cross the border.
Mystal went on to breathlessly declare that the court has moved beyond abortion to “poke holes in the separation of church and state” in order to allow the establishment of a “Christian theocracy over all else.”
Host Joy Reid has echoed the same theme, claiming that the “Christianist majority” of the Supreme Court wants to return the U.S. to the 18th century, with some states returning women to their “1700s status as property.”
Progressives are likely to become more hyperbolic as the midterms approach amid tanking poll numbers for Democrats and the Biden administration.
Leftists are likely to continue to attack Boebert and Greene, as women of faith are the most popular target for radical progressives who detest Christianity and the traditional American family.
They have identified two House members who almost certainly will be back in the next Congress that is likely to return to GOP control. FiveThirtyEight projects an 88% chance of Republican control of the House after the midterms.
