Proving that he either has a damaged or highly selective memory, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) claimed Sunday that anti-abortion protesters to advance their cause in the years after Roe v. Wade became the law of the land.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Graham began by accusing Democrats of being anarchists:
“They want to make D.C. and Puerto Rico a state! At the end of the day, they are — constitutional anarchists are in charge of the Democratic Party.”
Resident of the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico pay federal taxes, and yet they have no representation in Congress. Taxation without representation was one of the causes of the Revolutionary War, which Graham must not have bothered to study during his time in school.
Graham then suggested that those in favor Roe might resort to violence:
“And I appreciate President Biden saying to the left, don’t use violence. What I worry about is this protest going unchecked at judges’ homes is giving a green light that there are no rules anymore.”
The South Carolina Republican added that he is urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to arrest and prosecute anyone who protests at the home of a federal judge.
But it was what Graham said next that raised the most eyebrows:
“If we don’t watch it somebody’s going to get killed out here. Do what we did. Go to the ballot box. Try to win elections. Don’t burn down the country.”
Do what we did? Really, Lindsey?! Is that supposed to be some sort of sick joke? Here are some facts from a 1998 report published by the Southern Poverty Law Center the senator badly needs to contemplate:
Over the last 20 years, anti-abortion terrorists have been responsible for six murders and 15 attempted murders (see Lake of Fire), according to the National Abortion Federation. They have also been behind some 200 bombings and arsons, 72 attempted arsons, 750 death and bomb threats and hundreds of acts of vandalism, intimidation, stalking and burglary.
Graham really needs to change his statement to: Do as we say, not as we do.
