Congressman Tells Black Anti-Abortion Rights Activist ‘You’re Ignorant’
After hearing this, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) got upset and told Parker: “I am not disingenuous about anything I say about Medicaid or Medicare … or SNAP [Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program] programs.” Cohen went on to say: “And to suggest I’m disingenuous shows your ignorance or your absolute inability to deal with congresspeople the way they should. I believe in those issues and I think they’re proper, and to say I’m disingenuous is just wrong and I expect an apology.”
People were shocked to hear him go after a black woman publicly like this, but here is the thing:
She is kinda ignorant, though.
First of all, the Dred Scott decision is nothing like Roe v. Wade. I feel like most of her talking points came off Infowars or from a bad spoken-word poem about Willie Lynch. Secondly, that “leading cause of death” statistic is an old myth that people use at their leisure.
