‘How can you be against the Taliban if you’re pro-life?’: Twitter takes Dan Rather to school over awful take

It’s not surprising to see Dan Rather carry water for President Joe Biden and his Democratic cohorts, but to see the disgraced ex-newsman essentially justify actions from the president that will prove catastrophic to Afghan women may be a new low.

Of course, he did so while taking a stand for the killing of unborn children.

The left is losing its collective mind over the Supreme Court refusing to take action on a request to block a Texas law prohibiting most abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, The New York Times reported. Taking effect Wednesday, the law ushered “in the most restrictive abortion law in the nation and prompting clinics in the state to turn away women seeking the procedure,” the newspaper added.

And this is where our feminist hero comes into play, as Rather took to Twitter to slam those who had concerns about Biden leaving Afghan women at the mercy of the brutal Taliban, downplaying the plight of these women to protect his guy, while advocating for the right to kill unborn babies.

“It’s worth noting that many of the same people attacking the Biden Administration for leaving women’s rights behind in Afghanistan are eager to control women’s bodies and choices in the United States,” he tweeted.

The tweet follows Arne Duncan, who served as former President Obama’s Education Secretary, comparing the unvaccinated to suicide bombers at the Kabul airport.

“Have you noticed how strikingly similar both the mindsets and actions are between the suicide bombers at Kabul’s airport, and the anti-mask and anti-vax people here?” he tweeted. “They both blow themselves up, inflict harm on those around them, and are convinced they are fighting for freedom.”

Biden is taking a beating in the polls over his disastrous handling of the Afghanistan evacuation, which included the unconscionable call to leave hundreds of Americans behind. This outrage came on the heels of 13 U.S. service members being killed last week.

His allies in the media, people like Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, and Rather, have a “herculean” task upon them to change the public’s perception there.

As for his tweet, Rather is saying those who care about the rights of women also care about protecting unborn babies, as if that’s a bad thing.

But then, conservative Matt Walsh hit the nail on the head when it comes to the left’s fervid support for abortion.

The Times reported that the Supreme Court could still rule on the request, but for now, access to abortion in Texas has become extremely limited.

More from the newspaper:

The law, known as Senate Bill 8, amounts to a nearly complete ban on abortion in Texas, one that will further fuel legal and political battles over the future of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a constitutional right to abortion. The law makes no exceptions for pregnancies resulting from incest or rape.

In an emergency application urging the justices to intervene, abortion providers in the state wrote that the law “would immediately and catastrophically reduce abortion access in Texas, barring care for at least 85 percent of Texas abortion patients (those who are six weeks pregnant or greater) and likely forcing many abortion clinics ultimately to close.”


Social media users were not kind to Rather over the tweet, with Life News suggesting that he may want to sit this one out.

Here’s a sampling of some of the responses to the story from Twitter:
