So "somebody" leaked a draft Supreme Court ruling (not yet final, and not yet in effect) about Roe v. Wade. Predictably, the progressive left is in an uproar; the more progressive, the more "up" their roar is.
This is manipulation, clear and simple. Somebody leaked this document knowing that it would produce an emotional, visceral reaction on the left that would overwhelm thought, logic and reason. You might as well call it re-programming the sheeple to focus on a new target. As a Gab meme puts it:
Matt Bracken notes:
The SCOTUS leak is an actual insurrection. An attempt to completely upend and delegitimize the rule of law, incite violence and chaos, and potentially plunge the nation into civil war. January 6th was a stroll in the park compared to this. It's not even close.
Liberals leaking a SCOTUS decision to pressure the justices to change their mind is an attack on our system 100000000 times more serious than the Capitol riot. This is why you should never listen to these fraudulent assholes when they prattle on about "saving democracy."
Who did it? We'll probably never know, although the initial leak had to come from a Supreme Court staffer, possibly working for one of the liberal justices. Suffice it to say that the progressive left has jumped on it with both feet, and are going to use it to whip up support for all they (and it) are worth.
Bear in mind that the proposed SCOTUS ruling does not ban abortion - no matter how the left tries to portray it. It simply overturns what has been known by legal scholars for decades to be a very poorly argued and legally unstable court decision. The abortion issue will be returned to the states of the Union for each of them to make its own decision about whether or not it's legal, just as should have been the case from the beginning under the Tenth Amendment to the constitution. In some, possibly many, states it will remain legal, or be officially and legislatively legalized. In others, not.
Unfortunately, those of us who value the rule of law, and who are going to try to approach the issue from that perspective and discuss it on its merits, are going to be drowned out by an hysterical chorus of "Women's rights! Reproductive health! Patriarchal oppression!" and so on and so on ad nauseam. The progressive left will approach it on the basis of emotions and "feelings" rather than facts and law. It will become (they are already using it as) a primary tool to energize their base to get out and vote in November, which they hope will swamp the re-emergent conservative right in a tidal wave of outrage and defensive voting.
For the progressive left this is all about politics, pure and simple. Justice and law have nothing to do with it - just like the lives of the unborn that are slaughtered by the millions every year in abortion clinics.
