A Tale of Two Hot Takes

 

The Mayor of New York City, ladies and gentlemen, believes that moms should not get to choose whether or not to mask their living children, but should have the “right” to abort their child up to the point when the head is crowning.

I can’t tell if they are stupid or if they think we are. Maybe both. The power tripping concerning kids is amazing, though.

    Of course these are not contradictory positions in that each involves harming children—among others.

    And the irony is that they are convinced both are helpful to children.

    I was just getting ready to post this same thing. Also that apparently moms need the government’s help and permission for all things, which they are trying to prove now through the baby formula shortage. Next hot take: we saved your babies by getting formula to you, but if you’d just abort them we wouldn’t have this problem! It’s just maddening.

    While NYC’s last mayor was a true believer in communism, Adams only goal as mayor is to hangout with celebrities and pretend he is one. As such, he “believes” whatever he thinks the Hollywood elites do.

    But I was told that men aren’t allowed to have an opinion on abortion.

    This truly is murder, plain and simple . . .

    Amazing how the left wants to let you kill an innocent child in the act of being born, but not let you have a gun to kill the serial rapist breaking into your home . . .

    Both.

    Well, the NYC Mayor’s salary is a quarter of a million bucks per year.  He may be another amoral, grasping politician but he’s probably not stupid.

    A lot of people who do stupid things are not stupid.

    They are required to have correct opinion

    And according to some feminists, women who have the “wrong” opinion on abortion aren’t really women.  I think the rule is, “Agree with us or shut up.”

    What if they identify as a woman?
