The Stench (w/ Justice Sonia Sotomayor, et al.)
Episode 222: Rumble w/ Michael Moore
Yesterday was a chilling, historically bad day for women's rights in the United States of America. The right-wing, reactionary Supreme Court heard stunning oral arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, a case intended deal a death blow to Roe v. Wade and make abortion in America essentially illegal. But in listening to the arguments and to the mind-altering questions of the six conservative justices, you can hear far more than the death knell of Roe. After 50 years of the merger between right-wing corporate interests and right-wing Evangelical Christianity within the conservative movement and the Republican party, the Supreme Court has become the ultimate and unstoppable weapon when it comes to rolling back our democratic values in America.
We are in deep trouble.
In this special episode of Rumble with Michael Moore, we’ve done something a little different. After a brief introduction, you will hear the full, unedited, live oral arguments at the Supreme Court on an already infamous day in U.S. history.
Listen, learn, and get ready for the massive, civil, nonviolent unrest that we will soon take part in.
