Now we know: The conservative devotion to life ends at birth.

Commentary

WaPo columnist Max Boot brings us up-to-date on what the right-wing media is saying during the coronavirus pandemic.

Some of you might remember MSNBC had a promotional tagline a few years ago, “We Watch Fox So You Don’t Have To.”

They dropped that line several years ago. I guess they got tired of watching the nonsense Fox and it’s talking heads relentlessly spewed; nonsense, that unfortunately, is the only “news” that a large percentage of the U.S. population receives.

Today, Max Boot, an Op-Ed columnist for The Washington Post, takes up the mantle.

Boot is a writer and historian who describes himself as a “natural contrarian,” a conservative, who believes that he is the only conservative writer in the history of Berkeley’s student newspaper, the Daily Californian. Boot’s column, “Now we know: The conservative devotion to life ends at birth,” can be accessed in the links below.

So, in case you missed watching, hearing or reading these commentators and “journalists,” including, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Brit Hume, Dennis Prager and Glenn Beck among others, Boot does it for you.

I’ll simply close with Boot’s final thought,

“I wish I could dismiss these commentators as an inconsequential, lunatic fringe. But they have the ear of a president who wants “packed churches” on Easter. If churches really are packed on Easter, those same houses of worship should be prepared to hold a lot of funerals by Memorial Day — if, that is, funerals are even permitted during a pandemic.”

  1. This is why I recommended that Trump and family take the lead by attending Easter Mass in St Pat’s in NYC!
