We get the sinking suspicion that Joe Biden and his cadre of progressive Democrats aren’t really that up in arms about the eventual reversal of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling.
Never before perhaps in his entire presidency has Sleepy Joe been so well-spoken about any given topic, or made an argument as coherent as this. Still, the energy he portrayed during a White House event where he waxed hysterically about the consequences of ending Roe v. Wade was lost in a sea of utter nonsense.
Biden took a page from the conservative playbook when he delivered a ‘slippery slope’ argument claiming transgender children could now be segregated from classrooms after Roe v. Wade is eventually overturned.
He made this giant leap after claiming Trump supporters, or the “MAGA crowd”, as he put it, were the “most extreme political organization” in recent American history.
The leaked opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, drafted by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, could endanger other liberal precedents, Biden said.
Biden incited his progressive followers by waxing hysterical about the consequences of overturning Roe v. Wade. He used hypothetical scenarios that he knows will cause liberals to panic, such as segregating gay children from straight children in classrooms.
“What happens if you have changes in the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?” Biden asked during a Q&A session with reporters at the White House on Wednesday.

First of all, who even knows if a child is gay or transgender? The purpose of the classroom is not to discuss or infer a child’s gender or sexual identity, so Biden’s argument is baseless right off the bat. Secondly, what Republican or member of the “MAGA Crowd” ever suggested segregating children in any way?
It seems the only people who want to segregate children are Critical Race Theory liberals who wish to separate schoolchildren along racial lines.
Biden said the opinion reminded him of the debate over the right to privacy when, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he sank the Supreme Court nomination of Robert Bork. He pointed to the back and forth over a law that banned the use of contraceptives, a decision that focused public attention on the Bork hearings.
This is purely a matter of Biden and the Democrats finding a useful midterm message to hopefully mitigate some of their losses. Good luck!
