Glenn calls out Dem's arguments against Kavanaugh: Facts 'cannot be heard over the din of outrage

From the moment President Donald Trump first announced his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court justice, Democrats have been inciting an all-out panic over abortion and women's rights using what Glenn Beck called "the slippery slope fallacy."

Slippery slope arguments claim that Kavanaugh's confirmation will spell certain doom for Roe v. Wade, which will send us sliding downward toward a world in which women have no rights over their own bodies. In other words, if Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court justice, we'll all be living in a real-life "Handmaid's Tale."

Glenn cautioned against the slippery slope fallacy, saying that facts "cannot be heard over the din of outrage."

He noted that the Supreme Court hears an average of 80 cases per year.

"The court will likely have a few more things on its plate than a theoretical take-down of Roe v. Wade," he added.

He also pointed out that no one really knows how Kavanaugh would vote, even if an abortion case did come before the Supreme Court.

"We all thought we knew how [Supreme Court Justice John Roberts] was going to vote when it came to health care, didn't we?" Glenn said. "Outrage addiction makes people do really weird things."
