MAGA Hot Mic: Minnesota GOP Lieutenant Gubernatorial Candidate Matt Birk
July 22, 2022
Matt Birk: “It’s not over. Our culture loudly but also stealthily, promotes abortion. Telling women they should look a certain way, have careers, all these things.”
Today’s MAGA Hot Mic moment comes from the Minnesota GOP Lieutenant Gubernatorial Candidate Matt Birk.
Matt Birk’s distasteful comments are simply the latest revelation of just how out of touch today’s GOP is with Americans. As millions of Americans face extreme abortion bans and have to worry about the government interfering in their personal health care decisions, Matt Birk thinks it is a joke.
Vanity Fair: “Speaking at an antiabortion convention, Birk told the audience: ‘It’s not over. Our culture loudly but also stealthily, promotes abortion. Telling women they should look a certain way, have careers, all these things.’”
Matt Birk: “‘… Other laws, you know, women used to not be able to vote in our country. Now we let ’em drive. I mean, I have three teenager daughters that drive, I don’t know if that’s a good law or not. Just kidding. Sorry, kidding, kidding to all the women out there. And don’t tell my wife I used that joke, she hates that joke.’”
As if his jokes weren’t enough, Birk continued by dismissing victims of rape and incest — showcasing yet again how far Republicans will go to push their extreme MAGA agenda.
Minnesota Reformer: “Birk dismissed abortion rights activists who oppose abortion bans that do not allow exceptions for rape and incest. ‘One of the arguments I probably saw 20 times online today was about rape. And obviously they always want to go to the rape card.’”
Matt Birk and extreme MAGA Republicans keep saying the quiet part out loud: They are pushing for an abortion ban with NO exception for rape or incest.
