The media has widely allowed for calls of violence against Supreme Court Justices, churches, Christians, and Conservatives and you shouldn’t just ignore it. That extends to TBS, the network supporting the basement-rated “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.”Bee called for liberals to ‘raise hell’ but then went on to single out and name Justice Alito.
Bee ranted “It is insane that a Supreme Court that doesn’t represent a majority of Americans will cause women more death and suffering.” (Babies aren’t counted in the death toll.) Then came the call to action, which spurred the #RaiseHell Twitter campaign with the TBS promo.
BEE: I can’t describe how painful it is to be here now in a place where the Supreme Court has the power to erase 50 years of constitutional law. Make no mistake, this is not where it ends. Conservatives will not rest until they have come for all of our rights. Everything we have fought for will be lost unless we take it back. It’s not just about voting in November. It’s about doing everything in our power to protect and help vulnerable people access abortion across state lines. And we have to raise hell in our cities, in Washington, in every restaurant Justice Alito eats at for the rest of his life, because if Republicans have made our lives hell, it’s time to return the favor.
Hollywood In Toto pressed TBS to respond and here’s how well that worked out:
“TBS broadcasts Bee’s weekly show, a program that draws a fraction of the ratings that late night leaders Stephen Colbert and Greg Gutfeld generate. Last year, HiT asked what the cable network thought of Bee’s unhinged rant against Gov. Ron DeSantis, a screed that would shame even an MSNBC host.
HiT once more asked the TBS press office if it had any response to Bee’s latest comments. Her rant came hours before real violence broke out from pro-choice protests.
Again, no response.”
Remember, no response is a response…
A group of black-clad marchers turned violent Saturday night in Portland, Ore., smashing windows and scrawling graffiti on downtown businesses as protests continued to rage across the nation against the US Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.
