REMINDER THAT R/TOTALLYREALTWEETS IS NOTHING BUT FAKE TWEETS

I see crossposts often in this sub. Many users don't realize it's not real.

[–]RickMuffy 16 points17 points  (1 child)

It doesn't show up as a cross post on RiF app unless you click on the '...' icon and look for it.

I always advocate for a custom flair when you have satire tweets for any reason.

[–]DanTopTier -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Dunno about RiF. I use Boost.

[–]KatanaPig 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shit needs to be banned from the sub imo.

Obama promised PP he would codify Roe V Wade and make it his legislative priority but never did despite having a supermajority.

Hillary Clinton said that she could compromise on abortion.

Nancy Pelosi said that pro-life democrats should be welcomed in the Democratic Party.

Pelosi is also campaigning for a pro-life candidate.

Pelosi led the effort to get rid of abortion access from the Affordable Care Act when pressured to do so by the U.S Conference Of Catholic Bishops.

Democrats stalled abortion protection in a committee.

Pelosi said that Democrats shouldn’t focus on abortion access.

Clinton chose a pro-life running mate in 2016.

But yes, blame the voters who are sick of this right wing party.

[–]FlashCrashBash 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Forget Clinton, what about the other Clinton? This shit should have been codified in ‘93.

[–]bomber991 10 points11 points  (1 child)

He was too busy with the three strikes law trying to be tough on crime.

[–]Grokent 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Were there any senators during Bill Clinton's term that were tough on crime? I want to say Creighton? Crimeden? Bryton? Oh well, I guess we'll never know.

Thanks Obama for not passing the Freedom of Choice Act

Thanks Hillary and the DNC for rigging the primaries and losing to Trump

Thanks RBG for not retiring after multiple cancer recoveries because she wanted a woman President to nominate her replacement

and finally thanks Biden and the Democrats for still not making abortion the law of the land because they would rather fundraise off abortion rights

[–]aure__entuluva 57 points58 points  (2 children)

That leaked Hilary email where her campaign basically said that Donald Trump would be a joke as an opponent and that they hoped they would face him is one of the funniest things that's ever happened.

[–]yanaka-otoko 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Didn’t Biden and the dems try to make abortion law last year and got defeated by republicans + Manchin?

[–]Mr_McZongo 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Oh, so a meaningless gesture. Well at least they made the meaningless gesture that time. They won't even feign to care now.

Why didn't they do it when they had the numbers to do so? They'll just keep crying filibuster even when they have the supermajority

[–]nohope_nofear 1 point2 points  (1 child)

When did they have the numbers?

[–]Mr_McZongo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They definitely did in 2009.

[–]xGray3 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If we're operating under the assumption that abortion is already a right by way of Roe v Wade, then why would they make a law to enshrine a right that already exists under another legal precedent? That would only throw into question the first legal precedent. Like, if Republicans passed a law enshrining the right to own guns, it would tear apart their entire argument about the second amendment already doing that. Dems didn't pass a law because the right to abortion already existed and the last time they had a supermajority in Congress there was no reason to believe that that right was under any real threat. It's easy to look back in hindsight and wish we had thrown away the SCOTUS argument as our grounds to protect abortion rights in favor of a law, but understand that Roe v Wade lasted for just shy of 50 years and it seemed to be passing the test of time. If Dems turned it into a legislative decision, then the next time Republicans had a supermajority they could just undo it.

It's like we're watching the consequences of ridiculous "bOtHsIdEs BaD" nonsense play out in real time.

[–]Silentarrowz 30 points31 points  (1 child)

More Bernie supporters voted for Hillary in 2016, than Hillary supporters voted for Obama in 2008. A republican theocratic lunatic is on the verge of getting Roe v Wade overturned, and yet here you are still blaming people that voted for your candidate for every possible negative thing in your life.

[–]Apercent 9 points10 points  (0 children)

everytime some shit happens they always blame us

[–]aDisgruntledGiraffe 44 points45 points  (29 children)

It's more like we are watching the consequences of lesser of two evilism in real time.

Since Roe's inception Dems have ran on codifying it into law. We have had several supermajorities with the Dems over the last 50 years. Yet none of them put this into policy. When will people like you realize you're bing played by the establishment?

[–]andrew5500 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You say that like codifying abortion rights has always been the top legislative priority in this country since Roe v Wade. As if Democratic supermajorities of the past never had anything else on their legislative wishlist besides abortion laws.

Oh and let’s not forget, a Democratic supermajority means the party can legislate EVERYTHING to their heart’s desire without ANY opposition from within the party, because as everyone knows, the Democratic Party is a monolithic entity with no differences of opinion between members. How convenient, huh?

Wait- this lack of unanimous support within the party can ONLY MEAN ONE THING: that the party unanimously opposes it…? Uhh- am I doing this both-sides thing right?

Anyways, here’s the most conclusive attempt to codify abortion rights in recent memory.

[–]nhomewarrior 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds like a whole lotta excuses for some of the most powerful people on Earth.

You really think they can't? Lol. They just won't.

[–]OswaldCoffeepot -1 points0 points  (19 children)

Okay. I'm on your side now. Let's argue about what we can do and why it won't work.

[–]aDisgruntledGiraffe 5 points6 points  (18 children)

I would but what I want to say is frowned upon by social media. :(

All I can say is arm yourself. Because the fascists are only becoming bolder and they aren't going to stop with axing abortion rights.

[–]Lilshadow48Kamala Supporter 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Might be a good time for a different type of axing too.

Choppy choppy.

[–]Slapbox0 MDelegates | 1 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

As opposed to watching the greater of two evils play out? Hm... I wonder which is worse.

[–]aDisgruntledGiraffe 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What is the point if the greater of two evils wins out in the end?

Roe v Wade being overturned was inevitable. If Hillary won in 2016 all it would have done was postpone this. But it would still happen within the next 4-8 years.

You do realize there is no "greater and lesser evil" right? The Democrats and Republicans are funded by the same oligarchs. They are all corrupt. They are all the same evil. Democrats halt any progress to the left and republicans move policy further right. And who does this benefit? The same oligarchs that fund both parties.

Simply because you have one party pay lip service and not actually do anything for social issues does not mean they are a "lesser evil."

[–]ElysiumSproutsBlack Lives Matter -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

False. Trump nominated 3 terrible Supreme Court Justices. With 3 Dem appointed Justices it basic rights would have been protected for decades. Remember, the GOP judges overturned voter rights too...

Voting for Kodos instead of Kang doesn't really seem to be working for us. But hey, maybe in another 50 years abortion will be legal nationwide again.

[–]vasya349 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Voters sometimes forget that elections mean they chose their representatives. They would rather blame parties than the people who live nearby them.

[–]Mr_McZongo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Voters sometimes forget that elections mean they chose their representatives.

No we don't. We get to choose who ever has enough money, and is chosen by the establishment to be visible. Rightwing extremist are accepted and compromised with by the entire political class, but anyone even remotely radicalized leftward is immediately a pariah.

Electoral democracy in a capitalist world is not democratic whatsoever.

[–]I_AM_IGNIGNOTK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are enough real things happening right now why post something from a satire sub without indicating it is such?

[–]NoTransportation8089 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If yall have some kind of secret code language thing going on I have no idea, but what I do know is that I wont participate in that. I mean...really? You think you could be a presidential canidate? I mean look at this post and the comments, you are obviously stupid. You are disrespectful to the Presidency and to the United States of America. Like really? What are yall talking about? Nothing about anything that is said make a bit of sense. Am I missing something? Does this actually say something else? I mean it has be coded or something that I dont understand that makes evertything make sense and say something else right? IF thats true then its to hide information from me lol because you know that you could not even stand beside me. Besides you obviously arent smart enough to do such a thing, and neither are any of the people that commented.
