Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan rants against marriage equality bill with anti-immigrant talking pointsJuly 20, 2022
“We thought the Democrats were obsessed with President Trump,” Jordan begins. “But Justice Thomas is a close second. This bill is simply the latest installment of the Democrats’ campaign to delegitimize and attempt to intimidate the United States Supreme Court. It started when President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh; that was just too much for the left to bear, and they launched a smear campaign in an attempt to derail his nomination. ”
Here is the clip currently going viral.
He goes on to say Democrats are introducing this bill to distract from inflation, immigration, and violent crime in urban areas, and are trying to “manufacture” a crisis to help them get votes in November.
“We are here for a charade,” he insists. “We are here for political messaging.”
And here is a longer clip of Jordan’s rambling insistence that this bill is “unnecessary.”
“We think this legislation is unnecessary,” Jordan says in part. “Justice Alito was very clear—again, it’s been read several times—the Dobbs decision should not be misunderstood or mischaracterized to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion. The Court couldn’t have been clearer. The Obergerfell decision undid what 35 states have on their law in their respective state. 30 of those states, it was the vote of the people, as I said before. But this legislation, I guess, is going to just go after that decision of those respective states and, as I said, the voters in those states.”
