On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck had words for any of the unhinged pro-abortion advocates who've lost their minds over the leaked draft majority opinion, which indicates that the U.S. Supreme Court plans to overturn Roe v. Wade, the controversial 1973 decision to legalize abortion nationwide.
Glenn said that people in this country who lament that "just five people are going to make the decision for the rest of us" in reference to the five Supreme Court Justices who are in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade, should actually welcome the idea of having duly elected state officials making decisions instead of Supreme Court justices who are appointed by the president.
"What the Supreme Court did yesterday was very clear. It did not ban abortion. It didn't. What it did was return the power to the people," Glenn stated.
"These five people should
not be making the decision on something so personal," he said of the Supreme Court justices. "That is up to the people themselves to decide. It's empowering for the average person [to turn abortion laws over to state legislature.]"
"It's amazing how dumb Americans have become, because of our teachers' unions, because of our media, and, quite honestly, because of our political parties," Glenn added. "America, you're an idiot. Now, do you want to stop being an idiot? Then maybe you should educate yourself."
Glenn went on to review the latest examples of "leftist short-term memory loss," as pundits use the same arguments in support of Roe v. Wade that would have kept in place other terrible Supreme Court decisions, like "separate but equal." Do they know their fearmongering completely contradicts everything they've been saying prior to this? Or is it that they just don't care?
