Texas abortion law derangement syndrome

Let's add another derangement syndrome to the list. As you remember, it all started with the late Charles Krauthammer back in 2003, when he gave us Bush Derangement Syndrome:

The acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.

The torch was passed to President Trump and now to the Texas abortion law.

It's remarkable, what we are hearing from the other side about this law, a piece of legislation that simply states that no doctor can abort a baby with a heartbeat.

Here is an example from Joy-Ann Reid:

Texas is basically a small Soviet Republic at this point, with neighbors spying on neighbors, hoping to collect a cash bounty, in addition to being an apartheid state for nonwhite voters. What woman or POC could possibly feel safe there? To say nothing of the gun proliferation.

This is derangement syndrome on steroids.

I happen to know a thing or two about neighbors spying on neighbors because I lived in and heard stories from my parents at that time in Cuba.  The Castro regime created something called the "CDR" or the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.  Those were spies, not what we are doing in Texas.  Furthermore, if Texas was indeed a Soviet Republic, then her show and network would be shut down.

So what's going on?  Why are people so stupid?

First, they need to change the subject.  In other words, it has not been a good seven months for the Biden presidency, or better said, the anti-Trump presidency that Joy is so invested in.

Second, Joy confirms with her response just how much opposition to abortion is now a religion for her side.  They have to defend the practice no matter how crazy their responses are.

The bad news is that the accusations will get personal and mean.  The good news is that there are five justices who agree that states can regulate abortion.

Last, but not least, why are so many women moving to Texas?

Monica Showalter adds: We can add this poor deranged feller to the list, too:

Greenwald, who's no conservative, was disgusted, as were most of his lefty commenters.  To suggest there's a comparison of any kind of Texas and its abortion law and life under the murderous Taliban is 100% USDA idiocy.  And this fellow in question, Naveed Jamali, who made the lunatic tweet, should have known better but didn't.  Jamali is a former U.S. naval intelligence officer (turned MSNBC contributor), whose derangement resembles that of ex–CIA director Gen. Michael Hayden, who compared Republicans to Taliban-supporters.  Jamali's Twitter feed full of such deranged lunacies is followed by none other than Alexander "that's colonel to you" Vindman, which shouldn't be a surprise.  Apparently, there's something in the water over there in the Intelligence Community, obsessing about conservatives and their victories with the gusto they might have had in the past for bona fide enemies — which might explain why they aren't up to winning wars anymore.
