While Greg Gutfeld doesn't have any children of his own, he proudly stands with those who seek to force women to bring pregnancies to term or risk their lives in a back-alley abortion. And in promoting his anti-choice views, former altar boy Gutfeld has no qualms about slut shaming those who do make the informed choice to terminate a pregnancy, as shown by his characterization of those who have abortions as "morally inept." He claims that women who support abortion hate babies. He once "joked" that those men, whose partners have abortions, won't get father's day cards. Monday night, Gutfeld, did it again. He used the issue of the incinerated British fetuses to, once again, insult women who have abortions. And Fox News thinks there is no war on women. Seriously?
Gutfeld opened with a trademark soliloquy meant to show his sheer profundity; but, as usual, only served to show his ignorance and misogyny. He began with a reference to the incinerated fetuses without, of course, reporting that the Brits have ceased the practice and are reviewing policies regarding disposal of fetal remains. In an effort to create maximum shock value and exaggerate the issue, he compared what happened in Britain to the movie "Soylent Green" which took place in a dystopian future world in which human food consisted of baked human remains. The premise of this analogy is ludicrous given that the aforementioned food was manufactured as a result of overpopulation and scarce resources - a situation that could happen if Gutfeld's anti-choice pals ban abortion and birth control.
He waxed poetic: "So what's England's excuse? How did they get to this point? And what does this say about humanity when flesh becomes fuel for those lucky enough to live? And what constitutes waste these days? Waste is a substance without value. If you abort a healthy child as a choice, do you forfeit the right to care about where it goes next?" Gutfeld, a paragon of morality, bloviated that "once you remove moral values, sadness over its usage becomes absurd. It's like mourning the loss of a tumor."
Eric Bolling, another one of Roger Ailes' anti-choice conservative Catholics males added to the scripted Fox News anti-choice message with an irrelevant non-sequitor: "So very quickly, it just begs the question: all these abortion clinics, what are they doing? What are they doing? It's just a complete disregard, a blatant disregard for human life. It's disgusting. Nothing short." Obviously, problems with British disposal of medical waste has nothing to do with abortion clinics; but the comment serves to convey Fox's anti-choice platform and reinforce the audience's negative views of abortion.
There were two messages for this bit of blovation. The first was, as we saw with Andrea Tantaros' little screed, an attempt to smear the much respected British NHS. Hence, Gutfeld's indictment of England based on poor practices in a handful of hospitals. But the second and larger message was far more insidious. What Gutfeld was really saying was that you women who abort a "healthy child" (and some abortions occur when the fetus is damaged) have no "moral values" so STFU.
His fan base (!?) thinks that his commentary was "fearless." Really? Casting judgment on women who have abortions is disgusting. But then that's how those who fear women's empowerment role. Ya think!
Gutterman was silent when his fellow News Corporation colleagues in the U.K. hacked the phone of a murdered teen. Talk about morals!
All these Fox “News” frauds are hypocrites. They preach morality on their shows, but hide this corporation’s own scandals.
