Hayes Hypes Fears SCOTUS Will Ban Gay Marriage, Touts Democrat Show Votes

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.

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. This is because the Supreme Court made 2015 marriage equality law. It also gave people the constitutional right to marry their loved ones. 

This was a dead political issue. Republicans seemed to have been let down by the large margin that voters supported the Republicans, which was 2 to 1. Now, however, the Supreme Court’s radical right-wing overturning of this ruling has made it clear that Republicans are no longer in control. 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. Yesterday, Democrats in Congress brought forward a bill to federally safeguard existing same-sex marriages and allow states to recognize those from other states. It also repealed the deplorable Defense of Marriage Act. 

It passed by a large bipartisan vote of 267 to157 157 Republicans voting against. This is because most House Republicans voted for it. However, it was supported by 47 of them. This bill is now in the Senate. 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. It might get 10 Republican votes before it becomes law. It can be signed by the President. 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.
