MSNBC will say and do anything to further the Democrat Party’s leftist agenda, no matter what the actual truth is. Further proof of this came during the tail end of Wednesday night’s All In when Chris Hayes claimed, without evidence, that the Supreme Court signaled in the landmark Dobbs v. Jackson case that the decision would create a precedent for repealing the right to same-sex marriage, contraception or even interracial marriage.
Hayes took a concurring opinion written by Justice Clarence Thomas and ran with it, despite the majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito in such plain English that even an MSNBC host could understand that “the Court emphasizes that this decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion and no other right. Nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast doubt on precedents that do not concern abortion.”
Despite this, Hayes continued lying while touting the Democrats’ show vote to codify same-sex marriage despite it already being legal.
“For years, Republican politicians like Ted Cruz have gotten away with being neither for nor against marriage equality for LGBTQ folks,” Hayes claimed. “It’s because in 2015 the Supreme Court quite famously made marriage equality the law of the land, it found a constitutional right for people to marry the person they loved.”
Hayes figured that “because voters supported by a massive margin, 2 to 1 in most of the polls, Republicans were kind of off the hook.”
“But now, in the wake of the radical right-wing Supreme Court overturning Roe V. Wade, and 50 years of precedent, and, crucially Justice Clarence Thomas explicitly calling to overturn the case that made marriage equality the law of the land,” Hayes wailed.
He tried to shame Republicans and demanded that they “pick a side.” Because “Democrats in the House brought up a bill that would federally protect existing same-sex marriages” and “make states recognize marriages from other states, and also repeal the odious Defense of Marriage Act.”
Regardless of what Supreme Justice Thomas wrote, the reality is the other five right-leaning justices rightly or wrongly won’t support overturning the “right” of same-sex couples to “marry.”
Hayes is aware that his party will not be able to compete in 2022’s midterms, so he must help Democrats create fake controversies.

MSNBC’s All In
July 20, 2022
CHRIS HAYES – For many years Republican politicians such as Ted Cruz were able to get away with not being for or against equality for LGBTQ people. Because in 2015, the Supreme Court famously declared marriage equality legal. In fact, the Supreme Court also recognized the constitutional rights of people to marry someone they love.
It was not a political issue anymore. Republicans seemed to have been let down by the large margin that voters supported the Republicans, which was 2 to 1. In the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of radical right-wingers Roe V. WadeAnd 50 years worth of precedent. But, most importantly, Justice Clarence Thomas specifically called to end the case which made equality for marriage the law of this land.
The Senate Republicans and Congress now have to choose sides. As you can see, yesterday, Democrats in the House introduced a bill which would protect same-sex married couples, allow states to recognize other state marriages, and repeal the hateful Defense of Marriage Act.
With a strong bipartisan support (267 to 157), the bill was passed. 157 Republicans voting against. This is because most House Republicans voted for it. But 47 people voted in favor. The Senate now has the bill. That is why Senate Republicans seem suddenly so inept on this matter.
Here’s the thing, because there is overwhelming support for this, the bill could clear the 60-vote filibuster threshold. The bill could win ten Republican votes, and it would then be law. The President could sign it. It’s really a rare example of what going on offense on quote, social or cultural issues looks like particularly when you have public opinion in your favor you press the advantage.
And here, either Republicans vote against this wildly popular provision, or you enshrine people’s marriages into law or both.
