Fox News’s Gutfeld Goes OFF on Geraldo Over SCOTUS Decision


OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion


In the wake of news that the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion Democrats are defending the leak from the nation’s highest court.

Democrat elected officials are using inflammatory language which appears to be designed to stir up unrest and harm the justices.

Liberals and anarchists are out in the streets, rioting and attacking law enforcement.

It’s almost as if Democrats are staging an insurrection.

They’ve taken disagreement to a whole new level.

The vitriol spread to Fox’s The Five yesterday.

A heated discussion over abortion erupted between Geraldo Rivera and Greg Gutfeld on the Fox show.

In the draft opinion, the justices provide a resounding condemnation of the 1973 ruling that guaranteed the right to abortion under the federal constitution and a 1992 decision that effectively maintained it, Planned Parenthood v. Casey. “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the draft.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” he stated in the document, which is titled “Opinion of the Court.” “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

A discussion of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court’s controversial decision, was had at one point.

There was an immediate firestorm in the segment about “The Five” after Rivera stated the three justices nominated by Donald Trump – Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett – planned all along to reverse the 1973 ruling.

“What this shows is that the Senate confirmation process by which a nominee is interrogated by both parties and give their reasons why they are fit to be on the high court, is absolutely, deeply flawed,” Rivera argued.

“Why? Because these nominees lied. They go before the Senate of the United States, they swear that they are going to be judicious and good, you know, shepherds of the court and its impartiality in the importance it has in the American society, and that the stare decisis that the precedent of these cases is well established,” Rivera continued.

“And then they turn around the minute they get in the high court, they make a decision that is so dramatically opposed to what they said during the confirmation hearing. Shame on them. Shame on Gorsuch. Shame on Coney Barrett. Shame on Kavanaugh. They knew … that they were going to vote to reverse or overthrow Roe v. Wade. They knew it and they lied about it.”

“What am I going to tell my daughters now?” Rivera exclaimed. “That they don’t have control over their body? That they can’t make those choices for themselves?”

Eventually, Gutfeld could no longer keep quiet and went after Rivera for his remarks.

“This is why pro-lifers win,” Gutfeld explained. “Because they can state their case so plainly. You ask somebody why they’re pro-life, they will say, ‘Because abortion takes a life and we believe life is sacred.’”

“You could disagree with that, but you can’t disagree with the simplicity of it, right?” Gutfeld queried.

“My body, my choice. How much simpler can you get? Rivera interrupted, and then the two went at it.

“Let me finish,” Gutfeld demanded. “You already did your ad hominem.”

“Ad hominem? It was not,” Rivera replied tartly.

“You insulted a few people there,” Gutfeld responded.

He described the new consciousness of pro-abortion forces as one for which abortion is seen as “something to celebrate, to cherish.”

“Oh, that’s baloney. That’s baloney,” Rivera retorted.

“I’ll give you evidence,” Gutfeld came back.

“Cherish the wire hanger stuck up their privates trying to get –,” Rivera disgustingly replied.

“The unborn child becomes,” Gutfeld replied after the back and forth, “This is exactly what I expected.”

“You are arrogant,” Rivera exclaimed.

“Go for it, Geraldo. Come on, keep going. You’re making a fool of yourself,” Gutfeld shot back.

“You know something, you insulting punk?” Rivera angrily replied.

“Hah! Oh, am I your new Bongino?” Gutfeld asked in reference to Rivera’s regularly contentious interactions with Dan Bongino.

“If you want that role,” Rivera snidely replied.

WATCH:

While protests were raging, high fences began going up around the Supreme Court on Wednesday evening as tensions rose in the wake of a draft opinion that hinted at a decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Massive fencing was erected around the marble building just east of the Capitol following warnings that protests could become increasingly violent and causing Justices to cancel public appearances.

There are plans by left-wing groups to deliver activists and protesters to the homes of conservative justices.

According to the group ‘Ruth Sent Us’, the homes and addresses of Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett and Chief Justice John Roberts will be walked by the groups next Wednesday.

‘Our 6-3 extremist Supreme Court routinely issues rulings that hurt women, racial minorities, LGBTQ+ and immigrant rights,’ the group states on its website. ‘We must rise up to force accountability using a diversity of tactics.’
