Greg Abbott, Texas “governor”—in quotes because he doesn’t know how to govern—responding to the question of what a woman who has been raped and gets pregnant as a result, should do since abortion is outlawed:
“Let’s be clear: rape is a crime. And Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas by aggressively going out and arresting them and prosecuting them and getting them off the streets.”
Um, Greg, you fucking tool? A rapist is born every minute … at least … and your state has the highest number of rapes per capita in the entire country, and rape is the most underreported crime of all. If it were that easy to end rape, why have you never done it?
I mean, come on, the guy can’t even keep the heat on in the winter and he’s gonna catch all the rapists.
Smacks of OJ’s Hunt For The Real Killers Tour.
Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary, mocking Texas GOP Governor Greg Abbott‘s promise to “eliminate all rapists” in a defense of his unconstitutional abortion ban:
“If Governor Abbott has a means of eliminating all rapists, or all rape, from the United States then there’ll be bipartisan support for that, but given there has never in the history of the country, in the world, been any leader who’s ever been able to eliminate rape, eliminate rapists from our streets, it’s even more imperative—it’s one of the many reasons I should say, not the only reason, why women in Texas should have access to health care.”
That idiot governor can’t keep the heat on, how in the hell will he catch all the rapists?
Typical GOP bull shit.
“For God’s sakes a livin’, how difficult is this to understand? Why in the world do we have to come up with these crazy ideas—and they’re crazy ideas—that the vaccine’s got something in it and its tracing people wherever they go? And the same very people that are saying that are carrying their cellphones around. I mean, come on. Come on. We’ve got to someway realize that we’ve got to get vaccinated for all — not just for you, but for everybody — we’ve got to do this.”
Nice to see a GOP governor pissed off at these anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers, but I’m pretty sure his annoyance will fall on deaf, ignorant ears.
Carliss Chatman, law professor, on the new Texas anti-women, anti-choice law:
“If a fetus is a person at six weeks pregnant, is that when child support starts? Is that also when you can’t deport the mother because she’s carrying a US citizen? Can I insure a six-week fetus and collect if I miscarry? Just figuring if we’re going there we should go all in.”
All good questions that Texas did not think about because the answers affect and concern men and all Texas wants to do is punish and control women.
