The left loses their minds over Hobby Lobby decision

posted at 12:41 pm on June 30, 2014 by Noah Rothman

I imagine the horrified shrieks that rose from the streets outside the Supreme Court on Monday as the decision in the Hobby Lobby case began to filter out into the crowd of liberal observers was reminiscent of those poor souls who watched helplessly as the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire claimed the lives of 146 young, female garment workers.

In fact, the similarities are eerie. It seems that liberal commentators have convinced themselves that, just as was the case in 1911, the courts and the country have deemed women to be of lesser value than their male counterparts. The distinction between these two eras, of course, is that while that argument could be supported in 1911, it exists only in the heads of progressives in 2014.

NBC News journalist Pete Williams, an accomplished reporter who is not prone to indulge in speculation, went out of his way to insist repeatedly that the Court’s decision in this case was a narrow one. He noted that the decision extends only to the specific religious objections a handful of employers raised about providing abortifacients (as opposed to contraceptives). Williams added that Justice Anthony Kennedy allowed in his concurring opinion that the federal government can pay for and provide that coverage if employers would not.

The Federalist published a variety of other observations about this ruling which indicate that it was narrowly tailored to this specific case. The Court ruled that Hobby Lobby and other employers could not simply drop health coverage in order to avoid mandates. This decision does not apply to other government mandates like those requiring employers cover vaccinations. Finally, if the will of the public in the form of an electoral mandate creates a groundswell of support for a government-funded program which provides access to abortifacients, then that would be perfectly constitutional.

Williams’ MSNBC colleagues nodded along and, when asked for their contribution, proceeded to display none of this NBC reporter’s caution.

“I think we’ve seen a real goal post-moving here,” MSNBC.com’s Irin Carmon said. “We may say it is a narrow ruling because Taco Bell and Wal-Mart can’t opt out, but it is still an enormous expansion of corporate rights and of the refusal from the laws that are passed to create benefits for everybody.”

“The larger doctrinal implication here is potentially significant,” MSNBC host Ari Melber agreed. “For the first time, the Court is going and taking the First Amendment rights that we’ve seen long established for certain corporate entities and extending them to the religious idea.”

“Just because it was only restricted to women’s health access doesn’t mean that it doesn’t create a devastating precedent which says that women’s health care should be treated differently,” Carmon added. She added that the Republican Party is the biggest beneficiary of today’s ruling. “So, the context of this is an all-out assault on access to contraception and access to other reproductive health care services.”

HotAir’s Karl has accumulated some of the best examples of liberal “schadenfreude,” as he’s dubbed it, in which the left utterly and intentionally misconstrues the scope of this ruling. Incidentally, their reaction also helps to service what appears to be a widely shared victimhood fantasy.

We’ve seen indications that the left believes this decision is a prelude to theocracy:

We’ve seen liberal journalists and commentators rending garments over the implications of this ruling which exist only in their own minds:

Even poor SCOTUS Blog, an organization which merely reports the news out of the Supreme Court, has endured an torrent of misdirected liberal outrage:

BrY-RuMCQAAhpl6

Finally, and expectedly, we’ve seen liberal politicians stoking ire, generating enthusiasm, and soliciting donations:

And this, via John Podhoretz’s inbox:

BrYwx8aIcAE-hJo

It is interesting that there seems to be more outrage over this decision from the left than there was when the Court struck down dated portions of the Voting Rights Act. Though that decision had much farther reaching legal and political implications, this is the issue that has captured the passions of the left.

Since the Left appears to have no moral objection to anything, it makes sense she would be troubled that the very idea of such a thing might mean gov’t can’t override them in all instances.

But someone ought to clue in the good indian that access to contraception didn’t change. SCOTUS didn’t pull the pill from pharmacy stores.

i hate these people so much. i know it’s not very Christian of me to say that but… it’s so hard not to hate all of these morons. so hard.

“So as not to insult Allah, this accounting firm requires that all female employees wear the hijab.”

yep. this is perfectly fine. an employer can do that if they want. it’s called a “dress code” and it’s something that most businesses have. most businesses don’t have a dress code with a required hijab but still, they have other dress codes. and even if a place did require a hijab then… DON’T WORK FOR THAT PLACE.

Can’t believe we live in a world where we’d even consider letting big corps deny women access to basic care based on vague moral objections.

how are they denying access???!! women can still access birth control. they are not denied it, that’s a lie.

What Hobby Lobby means is there are now two separate classes of women in America: those who work for privately-owned corps and everyone else

actually here are the two separate classes of women in america: those who practice abstinence and those who don’t. i do, and surprise, i haven’t gotten pregnant! wow!! what a coincidence that i just so happen to not have any unwanted pregnancies. and i just so happen to practice abstinence. amazing.

The Supreme Court #HobbyLobby ruling proves once again that Scalia Law is a lot like Sharia Law.

this is horrific. i don’t even have to explain how appalling it is that this decision is considered to equal sharia law. i am absolutely repulsed.

It’s time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women.

you’re a man too so why are you speaking?? shut up.

Good grief, such outrage for a phony regulation. Unlike most laws, regulations have a shelf life that ends when an administration is out of power.

The only reason the “contraceptive mandate” was put in place was to awaken sleepy-headed “feminists” to vote for Obama in Nov. 2012. The Obama administration even offered a “compromise” for non-profits. If they believed in its legality so sincerely, why offer a remedy for non-profits for their own over-reach? The Court was more than willing to use against the administration.

It does not matter what this case was actually about (NOT all contraceptions). The Lefty politicians know this. But they also have figured out that the American public is easily swindled. They are not even remotely concerned that the people will be able to see through the outright lies about their claims.

It simply gives the Left the ability to squeel really loud and spread misinformation that will be gobbled up by the majority of the people, which means more $$ and more votes. Thats all that matters to them.

She added that the Republican Party is the biggest beneficiary of today’s ruling. “So, the context of this is an all-out assault on access to contraception and access to other reproductive health care services abortion.”

Do these idiots really think that their pathetic attempts at verbal subterfuge aren’t utterly transparent?.. that if they just refuse to use the “A” word, we’ll all be super-confused and somehow believe that this isn’t about forcing people with moral/religious objections to pay for abortion?

Apparently, Dog Eater is looking for a way to get around this decision.

Good times are a comin’, peeps, time to start the ball rolling.

I’m hoping for a series of “unfortunate” accidents to happen to Hobby Lobby stores and the Greens.

…But thanks for exposing your slippery slope fallacy and projection for what it is. Only true fascists believe that all others act with the same fascist tendencies, values, and diktat. You think those closely held corporations would embrace fascism because you embrace fascism.

I’ll let the FBI know about that….thanks for playing….

Go ahead. They’ll have problems narrowing the list down to a million people who are thinking the same thoughts.

I don’t think they ate this stupid, of course this ruling does not prevent any woman from purchasing contraceptive and abortion drugs. There is also the usual political theatre involved. I think the left truly is scared that upholding the first amendment religious protections will allow a baker to choose not to serve people of a certain lifestyle choice because of legitimate religious reasons. Its no different.

Why hope, Patriot, get off your fat azs and make things happen on your own, social justice can’t wait.

Bishop on June 30, 2014 at 1:21 PM

Yup, those on the left crying foul when they don’t get their way pertaining to a “woman’s health”, ie: aborting their children from their womb on a whim. Losing that “priviledge” next is what realllllly scares them.

I HATE these worthless leftard bastards.

While it’s funny to laugh at some of this, it really is terrifying as well. These people are completely insane and detached from reality, and in their delusion they are destroying the country. The biggest problem is that their insanity is outstripped only by their zeal and passion. They will never stop until this country is totally ripped apart by their madness.

A liberal starts making threats. All over who pays for contraceptives.

You people are sick.

It’s time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women.

No, it’s time for the government to stop telling me what type of health insurance I must have.

When Democrats talk about ‘choice,’ they are only referring to uteri, recta, and pot.
