Wisconsin Pol Compares Colleagues to Taliban for Pushing Pro-Life Bill
MSNBC's Schultz Hypes Republican 'War on Women,' Guest Compares Pro-Life Legislators to Taliban (Newsbusters)
Amidst the rising tide of scandals plaguing the Obama administration, good ol’ Ed Schultz is eager to turn the conversation away from the controversies and towards divisive social issues. On Saturday’s The Ed Show, the MSNBC host declared the Republican “war on women” was “alive and well,” blasting new abortion restrictions passed by the Wisconsin state legislature.
Schultz kicked off his segment with a video of Wisconsin Senate President Mike Ellis (R) chiding Democratic legislators for interrupting the roll call on a bill that would require women to obtain an ultrasound before undergoing an abortion. The bombastic host followed up:
The House also passed the bill. Governor Walker says that he will sign it. Lena Taylor, this is an iron fist democracy being lost. The war on women alive and well.
