Someone on FB posted meme claiming Sam Elliot had this about abortion, illegals, and refugees.

A party that supports abortion over life, illegals over its own citizens, and refugees over its own veterans is going to lecture me on morals.
I don't think so, cupcake.


I responded with the following:

It is not about supporting abortion. It is about supporting a woman's right to decide what she does with her body based on her own knowledge and medical condition. Not some damn priest or pastor dictating to a woman or other third party person that does not have an inkling about what the woman is going thru. Nor do they care what happens to the woman as long as they get to dictate the conditions based on their religion. If you don't like abortions then don't have one and stop having sex. You don't have the right to push your religious beliefs on other people.

For the record abortions were performed by the priests in the Old Testament. The Catholic Church doesn't have a great history about abortions either. A bit of research also find that the Catholic Church have saints performing abortions.

Suggesting that illegals are supported over our own citizens is a false equivalency. It indicates an attempt to equate one situation that is not the same or related to the other. Nothing provides that illegals are given preference or better treatment than American citizens. As it is, the so called illegals that are trying to enter the country legally are being denied that right. Even as so called illegals they are still human beings and still should be treated humanely. Not separated from their families or children and babies caged. This is the type of treatment the Nazi's implemented against the Jews, American POW's, and and other groups. Many of those involved were tried and executed.

There is nothing that indicates refugees are supported over our veterans. Those that don't support veterans are Trump and his supporters that refuse to call Trump out on his statement that he considers those that have served as losers and suckers. His words. There is audio for it.


I'm waiting for her to unfriend me.

8. Right Wingers are all about these stupid memes . a recent one I saw is something about how

if your contractor didn't finish the job after 47 years would you keep paying them or some stupid shit based on Trump attacking Biden on his years in office.

It's all simplistic ignorant feel good bs.

3. I think the quote is false. Elliott isn't anti abortion.

At least from what I looked at, hes done fundraisers for pro choice groups.

21. Yes, I've seen that meme

and it is bullshit. Unfortunately, many people will believe it because it is on the Internet and any picture of Sam Elliott is bound to attract attention.

9. Why are you using the right-wing term "illegals"? And Sam Elliott is pro-choice.

I really wish DUers would keep the Facebook crap on Facebook.

16. They had to go with Sam Elliot

He's generally well-liked by everyone - seen as a man's man by many and someone with some good comedy chops by others but as someone who's played a rugged cowboy multiple times is probably seen as more conservative even if it's not true.

Otherwise it's, "Sorbo who? Wait... Hercules?"

23. I would like to see some supporting documentation, links, etc for one paragraph

For the record abortions were performed by the priests in the Old Testament. The Catholic Church doesn't have a great history about abortions either. A bit of research also find that the Catholic Church have saints performing abortions.


I would like to use that, but "I saw it on the internet" doesn't seem like a good argument to support it if someone challenges me.
