Strict

The Supreme Court ruled that you have to let Black kids go to school. They ruled that you have to let Black people vote. They ruled that women get to decide for themselves whether or not to bear children.

And that’s when conservatives began touting the idea of “strict interpretation” of the Constitution. If the Constitution doesn’t explicitly say that Black kids get to go to school, then Black kids don’t get to go to school. If it doesn’t explicitly say that Black people get to vote, then Black people don’t get to vote. If it doesn’t explicitly say that women get to decide for themselves whether or not to bear children, then it’s not their decision to make.

They try to pass off “strict interpretation” as if it’s some cloak of political and ideological purity. They like to think of themselves as fearless defenders of the Founding Fathers’ original intentions.

But the stench of racism and misogyny still wafts through.

    A baby is born on a certain day. What was it the day before?A “blob of tissue?” Pro-Life are exactly what we say-we are for life. We speak for the preborn. A woman can decide weather to procreate or not,fine. But her choice ends at another person’s body. How you are tying racism to pro life mystifies me.✌

    • Donald Trump has not packed the court with religious men, guided by love and compassion.

      He has packed the court with partisans who will allow him to do whatever he pleases, without regard to individual rights and liberties.

      He’s not worried about the lives of the unborn. He’s worried about “nasty women” doing things he disapproves of. It’s no secret that ol’ “grab ’em by the pussy’ is a misogynist.

        I agree. Trump scares me. America’s first dictator?
