Elie Mystal Freaks: Founders Were ‘Racist Misogynist Jerk Faces’!


On Tuesday’s episode of The ReidOut on MSNBC, justice correspondent for The Nation Elie Mystal had a complete meltdown over the prospect that the Supreme Court will hand the decision to make abortion legal to the states. 

After host Joy Reid played a montage of past Supreme Court nominees appointed by Republican Presidents who all stated that either Roe v. Wade is settled law or believed in following precedent, Reid turned to Mystal and said “those were lies, right, Elie? And stare decisis isn’t real, right?”  

Mystal proceeded to have a freak out for the ages in which he ranted that “they’ve always been lying and frankly, if you’re the idiot who believed their lies all the way through, then you’re too stupid to be a United States Senator. Obviously, they were lying. They have been lying the entire time, but my question is simply to the Democrats now what are you prepared to do?” 

 

 

In hindsight, he demanded to know “what did you think was gonna happen in 2004 when they replaced Sandra Day O’Connor, the deciding vote in Planned Parenthood v. Casey with Samuel Alito. What did you think was gonna happen when 52 percent of white women and 62 percent of white men couldn’t vote for the email lady and instead voted for Donald Trump?” 

Moments later, the completely enraged leftist criticized Justice Alito’s reasoning for wanting to rule abortion not a right under the constitution, because it’s simply not in the constitution, claiming: “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!” 

Continuing on his mental breakdown, Mystal huffed: “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!” 

After that vindictive, hateful outburst, he ended by giving Americans an ultimatum: “Look, either you believe that the founding fathers in their infinite wrongness were overcome by the 14th Amendment which guarantees equal protection to all people in this country, or ya don’t” and if you believe in the 14th Amendment “then Samuel Alito’s legal reasoning is laughable on its face and wrong.”  

Imagine being this enraged over wanting more abortions in the country. Mystal apparently isn’t aware that if the court does indeed overturn Roe v. Wade each state will make its own abortion laws.

JOY REID:  I mean, those were lies, right, Elie? And stare decisis isn’t real, right? 

ELIE MYSTAL: Yes, They’re lying, they’ve always been lying and frankly, if you’re the idiot who believed their lies all the way through, then you’re too stupid to be a United States Senator. Obviously, they were lying. They have been lying the entire time, but my question is simply to the Democrats now what are you prepared to do? Now that their lies have been exposed, now that the obvious jig is up, what did you think was gonna happen in 2004 when they replaced Sandra Day O’Connor, the deciding vote in Planned Parenthood v. Casey with Samuel Alito. What did you think was gonna happen when 52 percent of white women and 62 percent of white men couldn’t vote for the email lady and instead voted for Donald Trump?  

What’d you think was gonna happen when Mitch McConnell stole the Supreme Court seat? What’d you think was gonna happen when these people had a COVID party on top of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s grave? What did you think they were celebrating? Did you think they were yay federalism! Was that the party? They promised to do this, they are doing it, now what are you prepared to do to stop them from doing it is the only question that matters today! 

(…)

MYSTAL: 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. 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 guarantees equal protection to all people in this country, or ya don’t, and if you don’t believe that the 14th Amendment should — guarantees 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 that the 14th Amendment worked, then Samuel Alito’s legal reasoning is laughable on its face and wrong.
