(Slay News) – MSNBC’s Elie Mystal has again suffered an anti-American meltdown, this time attacking the Founding Fathers, who he trashed as “racist, misogynist jerk faces.”
Mystal made the remarks during an appearence on MSNBC’s “The Reid Out” with host Joy Reid.
The far-left analyst was triggered by the leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion that will overturn the landmark 1973 abortion case Roe v. Wade.
“Alito’s fundamental legal reasoning is that abortion is not a fundamental right because it doesn’t go back to the founding because the Founding Fathers didn’t recognize abortion as a fundamental right, and he’s right about that,” Mystal
“The Founding Fathers didn’t recognize abortion as a fundamental right because the Founding Fathers were racist misogynist jerk faces who didn’t believe that women had any rights at all.
“So, of course, they didn’t believe that women had rights to their own bodies.
“The Founding Fathers didn’t believe that marital rape was a thing, couldn’t be a thing, according to the Founding Fathers, according to Sam Alito, so that’s the history that Sam Alito is accessing.
“Look, either you believe that the Founding Fathers in their infinite wrongness were overcome by the 14th amendment which guaranteed equal protection to all people in this country, or get dumped.
“And if you don’t believe that the 14th amendment should guarantee women rights to their own reproductive system just like a man has a right to his own reproductive system.
“If you don’t believe that then we are living in a situation where women have second-class citizen status.
“If you do believe in the 14th amendment worked, then Samuel Alito’s legal reasoning is laughable on its face and wrong,” Mystal said.
I don't just call the founding fathers "racist, misogynist jerkfaces" on @JoyAnnReid, I actually wrote about those sick, rapist bastards in my book: Allow Me to Retort.
In fact, in Chapter 16, I eviscerate Alito's trash argument before he makes it.https://t.co/BOIpxq3LzV

Reid weighed in, saying:
“The Christian nationalist right is building Gilead in America and the Supreme Court is their deliberately, relentlessly, Federalist Society, Bush, Trump, McConnel-created weapon.
“And this is just the start.
“Buckle up women, LGBTQ people, and people of color.
“We’re all on the menu.”
Democrat President Joe Biden also gave in to hysterics over the ruling by trashing supporters of President Donald Trump.
Biden claimed during a speech that the “MAGA crowd” is “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history.”

Certain legal rights don't kick in at birth; a minor has many limitations. Does that make them less human? Less worthy of protection? Yes, there are thorny questions but should we not err on the side of life? https://t.co/4MsljCWKNk
