As news broke that someone leaked a draft majority opinion from the Supreme Court which overturns the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, the nation girded its loins for the inevitable nuclear meltdowns from the left.
So far, they have not disappointed. Every possible freak-out has made an appearance already, and it’s sure to get more intense over the coming days.
Here’s a list of the most unhinged responses so far.
Leaked Draft Opinion Causes Hysterical Outrage
While we don’t yet know how a draft opinion was leaked to the media, many speculate that the motive is not such a mystery – try to scare at least one justice into changing their decision.
Activists were at the ready, with hundreds showing up outside the Supreme Court, many with signs.
The professional bureaucrats who control the United States Government were none too happy with the news:
“Cope and seethe, you guys lost”

The rowdy crowd had already defined the alleged decision, and of course the Supreme Court Justices who allegedly made it, as “fascism” and “fascists.”
Crowd of protesters is growing quickly, and pushing toward the barricade that the handful of guards put up earlier tonight. Chants of “fascist scum have got to go,” interspersed with the names of the conservative justices pic.twitter.com/2OHtE2pLuy

Journalists, Politicians Far Worse
But the bureaucrats protesting on their own time couldn’t hold a candle to the deranged musings of celebrities, Democrat politicians, and their stenographers in the media class.
Everyone’s favorite Kennedy, Maria Shriver, apparently believes she’s the vanguard of a coming revolution.
But here we are. So you say you want a revolution? Well we have one right here, right now.

Far-left Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin appeared to admit she doesn’t know what “legislate from the bench” means.
If #SCOTUS is going to legislate from the bench and turn back the clock 50 years on #RoeVWade, then the Senate needs to pass my Women’s Health Protection Act, and if we need to eliminate the filibuster to get it done, we should do that too. #WHPA

Far-left Massachusetts Senator Liz Warren called the Supreme Court “extremist” and “far-right,” which would be news to actual extremists and people on the far-right.
An extremist Supreme Court is poised to overturn #RoeVWade and impose its far-right, unpopular views on the entire country. It’s time for the millions who support the Constitution and abortion rights to stand up and make their voices heard. We’re not going back—not ever.

Far-left Rep. Ritchie Torres, whose name has been whispered as the eventual replacement for Nancy Pelosi, believes he found secret passages in the Constitution.
One of the most disgraceful decisions in the history of the United States.
Rather than conserving #RoeVWade, which has been reaffirmed repeatedly for decades, these reactionaries disguised as “conservatives” have chosen to radically dismantle a core constitutional right. https://t.co/u0R5yo9qc5

Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, she’s ready to go with her legislation.
The radical, right wing Supreme Court plan to uphold draconian abortion bans and overturn #RoeVWade strikes at the heart of our freedom, health and safety.
House Democrats have already voted to codify Roe and will continue to defend its protections against Republican sabotage.

Singer Malynda Hale is convinced that interracial marriages are about to be outlawed.
If you think they won’t come for Same sex Marriage and Interracial Marriage next you aren’t paying attention. #RoeVWade
— Malynda Hale (@MalyndaHale) May 3, 2022
And not just interracial marriages!
If you think these extremists from the radical right will stop with just Roe, think again.
Contraception, LGBTQ+ rights, marriage equality…
Don’t think it can’t happen. It just did.#RoeVWade

For some reason, politicians in Scotland don’t appear to have anything better to do.
The right of women to decide what happens to our own bodies is a human right. And experience tells us that removing the legal right to abortion doesn’t stop abortions happening – it just makes them unsafe and puts the lives of women at much greater risk #RoeVWade

MSNBC decided to feature men crying over the issue:
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow predicted a dire future where America looks like… gulp… South America!
“If this ruling for the court… is gonna look anything like this, and we are going into a midterm season where the Republicans are poised to take the House and the Senate, then President Biden is still President Biden, and he would presumably veto such a measure,” she said. “But, in the event that we had a Republican president in 2024, that’s where we’d be. We’d be a South America-style nationwide abortion ban in America.”
But powerful people weren’t the only ones losing their minds. Plenty of regular people shared insane views.
For example, overturning Roe is “sentencing an entire generation to death.”

Some are intent on destroying democratic norms by pushing to pack the Court, again.
I used to be against expanding the Supreme Court.
Today is a new day.

Perhaps the best schadenfreude for the right, a significant number of liberals are mourning Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.
Hillary Clinton warned you every damned day that the Supreme Court was at risk, so if you voted Trump or Trump proxy, explain that to your daughters and granddaughters. #RoeVWade pic.twitter.com/zyPEqTh6Pu

The classic fallback made its appearance – the GOP merely hates women, you see. In other news, the left has finally discovered what a “woman” is.
The Republican Party hates women. #RoeVWade

Perhaps most alarming, many Americans don’t even realize that the Taliban is apparently the real governing body of America.
Fck everyone who said #RoeVWade was never under threat. That Democrats were just overreacting.
Fck American Taliban

Rep. Thomas Massie was left to point out the obvious, that overturning Roe doesn’t “outlaw” abortion, but rather leaves the decision to individual states.
If SCOTUS were to overturn #RoeVWade, it would return law making authority back to the legislatures. In fact, it seems unlikely that abortion laws would change in Massachusetts, so why are Senators Warren and Markey so apoplectic? pic.twitter.com/nmqEErCv3m

At least one person had some fun with the recent trend of pretending to not know what a “woman” is, and trendy terms like “birthing people.” Whoops:

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh turned the tables a bit.
Roe was decided by seven white men and overturned by a group that includes a woman and a black man. A major win for diversity!

No doubt, we will have to run Part II of this series before long.
