Lindsey Graham just came out and admitted Republicans hate freedom, liberty, and plan to put American Women in Shackles

The Supreme Sinister Six*

Now that Republicans have reduced women in the United States to second class status, they are fumbling with how to deny the consequences of their actions.

Some, like bigoted Blake Masters in AZ, have scrubbed their campaign sites of their positions to obscure their stances.  Others have decided to play word games and declare certain abortions don't count as abortions and hand wave away the reality of the Republican position.  Other new Republicans like, Yesli Vega have dusted off the old Todd Akin Legitimate Rape lie to cover their extremist anti-abortion position. 

And then there's the Old Guard like Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, and Mike Pence who have decided to go full bore and tell women, that yes, the Republican plan is no Abortions period.  None.  So don't get any pregnancy complications, or an unspeakable fetal deformity, and don't get raped because The Grand Old Pervert Party plans to make you suffer and die.  Because women dying is Pro-Life.

And, let's be clear, the Republican position is zero abortions, zero exemptions, zero health care for women buttressed by prosecution for any woman or doctor or Uber driver who fails to inform on their neighbors medical care.  Of course in all cases, Republicans new and old, are wallowing in their classic vile stances of transphobia, racism and lies.  But, in the meantime Graham or Rubio or any of these Republican monsters is going to continue to obfuscate, continue to fling as much shit as possible into the media in the hopes one sticks and the Corporate Media goes back to their role of uncritically regurgitating rightwing lies.

One of the outcomes of the Sinister Six Supremes Dobbs decision is it undermines the whole Corporate Media narrative surrounding the Republican Party.  For years the Corporate Media has acted as a bribed referee fixing Republican flubs, falsehoods, and fuck-ups in order to adhere to the Both Sides Do It.

For instance in 2014, the Denver Post Editorial Board (or, more accurately, publisher Dean Singleton) decided to endorse Rape-publican Gardner, in an editorial that will live in infamy:
If Gardner had been a cultural warrior throughout his career, we would hesitate to support him, because we strongly disagree with him on same-sex marriage and abortion rights. But in fact he has emphasized economic and energy issues (and was, for example, an early supporter among Republicans of renewable energy). 
For that matter, his past views on same-sex marriage are becoming irrelevant now that the Supreme Court has let appeals court rulings stand and marriage equality appears unstoppable. And contrary to Udall’s tedious refrain, Gardner’s election would pose no threat to abortion rights.

As Laura K. Chapin wrote earlier this year, Between “Mark Uterus” and the editorial, the damage was done. Abortion wasn’t a real issue, just something for silly ladies and overheated campaign rhetoric from an unserious candidate. Gardner won by the slimmest of margins, less than two points, in a Republican wave year.

Back in 2012 President Joe Biden, plainly stated the Republican Agenda, "They're going to put y'all back in chains."  I found a link to a 2012 blog post by Maggie Haberman at Politco (back before she decided to play fluffing stenographer for Donald John Traitor Trump) her lede was "Via 44, Joe Biden doing his best Joe Biden...

President Biden's statement was treated as another gaffe.  Another time Joe Biden boofed it, well Dark Brandon was right about Republicans then and now, Republicans are directly proposing a National Ban on Abortion because they apparently don't fear electoral blowback from their draconian measures.

Republicans hate America.  For 60 years now, Republicans have worked to undermine civil rights, freedoms and liberty.  The Modern GQP yearns for slavery and tyranny.  If given the chance,  Republicans will put every girl in chains.
