That’s telling them!


I have to admit, Rep. Matt Gaetz can aggravate, agitate and discombobulate progressive leftists like few other politicians can, when he puts his mind to it.  His latest is a doozy.

On Saturday, Gaetz spoke to college students at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, saying women protesting abortion access are less likely to get pregnant because they aren’t attractive.

“Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?” Gaetz said. “Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb.”

. . .

He gave this explanation when asked about Saturday’s comments:

“I’m very pro-life and I make no apology for it. I’m grateful that Roe has been overturned and that Dobbs is now the jurisprudence on abortion. I find these people that go out in these pro-abortion, pro-murder rallies odious — and just, like, ugly on the inside and out. I make no apology for it. I don’t believe that every person who disagrees with my perspective on life is an ugly person. But the ones that are out there protesting and marching on Justice [Brett] Kavanaugh’s home, trying to threaten the court, trying to impose a ‘night of rage’ on our nation’s Capitol — which us what they advertised — that’s just pure ugliness. I see that ugliness on the inside, I see it on the outside. Even in the horrible circumstance where an abortion may happen, it is nothing to celebrate and it is nothing to cheer.”

Channel 3 then asked Gaetz two follow-up questions:

Channel 3: Is it safe to say that, based off your comments, you’re suggesting that these women at these abortion rallies are ugly and overweight?

Gaetz: “Yes.”

Channel 3: What do you say to people who think those comments are offensive?

Gaetz: “Be offended.”

Whether or not one agrees with Rep. Gaetz’s comments, it’s very refreshing to find a politician who speaks his mind without fear or favor, and stands by what he says.  One could wish there were more of them, on both sides of the aisle.  At least we’d know for sure where they stand on various issues.



  1. I don't know much about this gentleman, but I definitely like his responses to the follow up questions. I think more people should say them

  2. To be fair, a lot of glamorous celebrities have recently criticized the Dobbs decision and openly boasted of having had abortions. And I've been to pro-life gatherings and can attest that not everyone there is a supermodel.

    It's not Gaetz's honesty I mind; his comment was superficial and distracts from a serious issue.

  3. To all the people offended by "lack of decorum" they ain't seen nothing yet.

    Decorum is no longer a smoke screen to pillage the working class.

  4. i have seen some of the pictures
    outside of a drunken fling in pitch dark or with a blind man getting pregnant is not high on the list of many of these 'protesters'.
    the core issue has nothing to with any of this fracas but is a deep spiritual issue
    ignore the red herrings distracting us and pray to God for our nation, our children and the world every time you become distracted by the issue of the day.

  5. That there, my friends, is a true Equal Opportunity Offender. So glad to see there are more of us.

  6. There does seem to be a large overlap of the Venn circles of "Ugly/unattractive females" and "supports unlimited abortion" here in the US.

    Might just be that those are the only ones willing to act up in public. Maybe.

  7. That's essentially a joke George Carlin used 30+ years ago, and he was antiestablishment, so it must be ok.

  8. I believe the document says 'pursuit of happiness', there's no guarantee by the government or any other power that you will not be offended by someone or something in your life time. I hope the 'be offended' quote lives on a long time. I feel it truly gets to the core of what is wrong with the current generation. You will not always win, you will not always be happy. Sometimes you will have to suffer to gain the things you want.
