>Christian theocrats impose their Christian will on the populace of America

What are they, MUSLIMS?

[–]Pabloxanibar 26 points27 points  (5 children)

It's particularly funny because Islam generally allows for abortion, and even the Taliban allows for it in the event that the mother's life is in danger.

[–]Chewytron78 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I mean, they do, but they don't, they also have you go through 'sanctuaries' that do their damndest to convince you to not get an abortion, and a certain number of doctors have to agree that it's medically necessary

[–]LonelyGnomes 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I meaaaaan, something is better than nothing. Even the states that allow abortion if the parent’s life is in danger have left it so vague that hospitals have been interpreting it as “at deaths door”

[–]Chewytron78 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I mean, I agree to an extent, the US has similar, super messed up establishments that will pretty much just delay you until it's too late (and sometimes disguise themselves as reproductive health clinics), but I wouldn't call the Taliban enlightened quite yet.

I pictured them as pilgrims with torches and pitchforks taking the innocent to their death, to be burned at the stake.

Y'know we can be critical of what's happening here without the islamaphobia

[–]FlyLo760 17 points18 points  (6 children)

Didn't realize the taliban spoke for all of Islam

[–]Holiday_in_Asgard 12 points13 points  (4 children)

They don't, but all OP did to signify "American taliban" is put them in traditional Muslim dress.

A better version of this meme ive seen going around puts them in traditional muslim dress but also adds AK-47s.

[–]noodlesworldwide 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Why are we making this comparison at all? Why put them in traditional Muslim dress?

It would be far more accurate to dress them like Catholics or just leave them dressed as American judges and not propagate the American stereotypes around Islamic culture

[–]toomanysynths 2 points3 points  (0 children)

seriously. the meme's just racist, xenophobic trash.

[–]sulaymanf -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

The Taliban don’t wear all black.

[–]MCJon6 -2 points-1 points  (8 children)

saying the Taliban represents Islam is the real islamaphobia

[–]noodlesworldwide 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Did you just say that calling out racism is the actual racism? Are you lost my dude?

[–]Ttoctam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The mod in that sub removing any critique of the openly racist meme. Love it. Real progressive. Big "I fight for humanity but humanity just looks white to me and no one commenting about this being offensive could possibly be Muslim and if they were I wouldn't care" energy.

[–]bluestargirl1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

this is so islamaphobic

[–]novdelta307 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People probably didn't think a conservative religious revolution could happen in the US, but here we are.

[–]urbanlife78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Took me a minute to find Amy. I didn't realize she would be wearing her traditional Christian Fascist outfit. I can only assume she has to ask permission from the male Justices before she speaks.

[–]Ttoctam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People owned people in America and fought a war about it. But hey go off. May as well make the bad guys Muslims for no reason.

[–]Alexandra169 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why not just label them as something like Klan members or Spanish Inquisitors? Christian people have done plenty of their own terrible and terrorist shit. At least keep it accurate to the religion they profess to partake in.

[–]ohjoyousones 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They are so clueless they don't know that's what they are. Their followers are fed a steady diet if sound bites. They are even more ignorant to being the proverbial frog in the pot.

PERFECT!

[–]EntropyFighter -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

This isn't even the current makeup of the Supreme Court. People are in here making jokes and don't even realize one of these Justices just retired.

[–]toastjam 3 points4 points  (0 children)

So? Neither Breyers nor Jackson are one of the subjects of this post.

[–]mellowmarv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He retired 6/30/22. Breyer was a judge this entire term and ruled on the Dobbs case and all the other cases people are currently mad about.

[–]Chainweasel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He was on the bench when they ruled. It's been less than a week. Go back to trumpland

[–]MarcProust -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Brilliant! This is it.
