Bill Maher Tries To Snap Libs Out Of Media Trance: 'We're Not Going Back Yo 1973'
Liberal late-night host Bill Maher tried to calm his liberal audience after a week-long incitementfest from the MSM. Maher, who is a pro-abortionist, could at least recognize the libs are being played by the media and that turning the decions back on the states wouldn't be the end of the world.
Liberal strategist and CNN contributor Paul Begala responded by telling Maher, "We're not going back to 1973, we're going back to 1931," Former NBC Sports reporter Michele Tafoya disagreed with Begala and pivoted the conversation to how there should be limits to abortion.
"There's got to be a point at which we say this is a human being capable of living outside the womb where maybe we don't — we don't do that," Tafoya said. "I think that's what you see a lot of in Europe and a lot of people are kind of settling around, ‘Okay, 15 weeks maybe.’"
Begala later argued that the "rationale" in the draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito would apply to things like interracial and same-sex marriage, which Tafoya pushed back on, pointing to how Alito states the ruling would specifically apply to abortion because it involves a "third party," being the unborn child.
Maher then railed against those who say Roe v. Wade is "settled law."
"This whole bulls--- argument about, ‘Well, it’s settled law.’ So was segregation. Plessy vs. Ferguson was ‘settled law’ in 1896 and thank God somebody said let's unsettle it. So that's a bulls--- argument. It's what you think," Maher said. "If you like babies, then you're pro-life and if you're pro-women, you're pro-choice."
The HBO star turned to Begala about his concerns about overturning Roe v. Wade having a "domino" effect on other rights.
"Don't stir up fear now. Be honest," Tafoya told Begala before he responded.
Begala continued to argue since the abortion law is classified under the same privacy right as things like marriage and contraception, they too can be in jeopardy.
"But Clarence Thomas is — it's an interracial marriage," Maher pushed back. "I guess what I'm saying is I really feel like abortion is unique. It is because either — you just have this view that it's murder. I could put the argument on a hat when people talk about a woman's right. ‘Murder isn’t a right.' If you think it's murder — I don't, again, crazy me… "
"While we have seen and heard extraordinary anguish in our communities," Pelosi, D-Calif., said, "we have been moved by how so many have channeled their righteous anger into meaningful action: planning to march and mobilize to make their voices heard."
