Elie Mystal: Life Doesn’t Begin at Conception, GOP Wants Witch Trials

Breaking News

So much for the Democrat Party being the party of science. On Monday night’s The ReidOut on MSNBC, justice correspondent for The Nation Elie Mystal had another meltdown over the Supreme Court protecting the sanctity of life and rightly throwing out the wrongly decided Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey decisions. During his unhinged and psychotic rant, he made the unscientific claim that life beginning at conception is simply an “overtly religious belief” and that if religious conservatives get their way, they will bring back “witch trials.”

Host Joy Reid teed off Mystal’s demented rant by pointing out that “pro-religious outcomes in Supreme Court cases under John Roberts” are 83 percent. She then falsely claimed that “there are not a lot of outcomes for Judaism or Hinduism it’s all for right-wing Christianity.” 

After that, she set Mystal loose to shriek at viewers watching at home: “Yeah they don’t really need to bring in outside groups to pray because the zealots are already on the Supreme Court. The call is coming in from inside the house” Mystal wailed. 

Mystal then proved once and for all that the Democrat Party is not the party of science: “if you go back to the Dobbs decision people need to understand that the premise that life begins at conception is an overtly religious belief, it is a Christian fundamentalist belief.”

“It is not shared by many people of the Jewish faith. It is not shared by many people of the Islamic faith, or the Hindu faith, or the Buddhist faith, or any of these other faiths that make up our country.” This is obviously not true as all religions believe in the value of human life. 

As he is known to do, Mystal proceeded to question the motives of conservatives in America by claiming “we have tried doing the new world the way Lauren Boebert suggests you know where it got us? To the witch trials. You know what happened? People died! But in this — with this court, we are not far away from that again.” 

Mystal ended by fear-mongering that “we’re not far away from one of these Lauren Boebert Marjorie Taylor Greene type people saying I saw goody Mystal speaking with the devil and helping women across the border.”

MSNBC’s The ReidOut
July 11, 2022

JOY REID: You know Elie, it’s not all religions that they’re talking about. The use of prayer, lots of different religions pray, but this Supreme Court has seemed to side very specifically with one religion, right-wing Christian religion, not even regular Christianity, just a very specific kind. And they have ruled for them almost all the time. I think their success rate is something in the 80 percent range. Pro-religious outcomes in Supreme Court cases under John Roberts it is 83 percent. Even under Rehnquist, who was a far-right guy, it was 58 percent. That is where we are, Elie, it is not all religion. There are not a lot of outcomes for Judaism or Hinduism it’s all for right-wing Christianity. 

ELIE MYSTAL: Yeah they don’t really need to bring in outside groups to pray because the zealots are already on the Supreme Court. The call is coming in from inside the house. If you go back to the Dobbs decision people need to understand that the premise that life begins at conception is an overtly religious belief, it is a Christian fundamentalist belief. It is not shared by many people of the Jewish faith. It is not shared by many people of the Islamic faith, or the Hindu faith, or the Buddhist faith, or any of these other faiths that make up our country. 

We have tried doing the new world the way Lauren Boebert suggests you know where it got us? To the witch trials. You know what happened? People died! But in this — with this court, we are not far away from that again. We’re not far away from one of these Lauren Boebert Marjorie Taylor Greene type people saying I saw goody Mystal speaking with the devil and helping women across the border. Like that is where they are going with all of this, and it’s not just Dobbs. It is a slew of cases that they issued last term that pokes holes in the separation of church and state and allows for the government to establish Christian theocracy over all else.
