The right-wing outrage machine—which to this day promotes the Big Lie and excuses the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol—performatively clutched its pearls and condemned Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s figurative “call to arms.”
In response to the recent Supreme Court draft opinion that will likely overturn Roe v. Wade, Mayor Lightfoot, who is Black and lesbian, tweeted a warning: “To my friends in the LGBTQ+ community—the Supreme Court is coming for us next. This moment has to be a call to arms.” The mayor followed that statement up with another tweet, adding, “We will not surrender our rights without a fight—a fight to victory.”
First, she’s absolutely correct to take Republicans literally and seriously when they’re transparent about their plan to roll back our constitutionally protected rights. Justice Samuel Alito, who penned the infamous draft opinion that will likely overturn Roe v. Wade, has publicly expressed his disgust over gay marriage. He’s joined by Republican Sen. John Cornyn, who shared his criticism with Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark 2015 Supreme Court decision that allowed marriage equality, during the confirmation hearing of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.
