The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Mo Alito

As Alito "distances" himself from his 1985 memo, let's remember the key phrase:

The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion.

The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion. The Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion.

Seems pretty clear to me...

You see, it's not just that he's personally opposed to abortion and that he wanted a job (as he now claims is the only reason why he wrote that memo). Instead, he believes (quite clearly, I might add) that the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion.

So while a lot of democrats appear to be snowed under by the big piles of bullsh1t that are being shoveled around -- like "It was different then. I was an advocate seeking a job, a political job and that was 1985.", let's take a second to remember that:

1. Alito is still seeking a political job -- a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, and

2. Since 1985, we have had 20 years of conservatives chipping away at the right to an abortion.

Given that, "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion," it's hard to imagine that Alito can even remotely be viewed as someone who hasn't already made up his mind on this issue and it is even more far-fetched to believe that Alito will vote to uphold Roe v. Wade in any meaningful fashion.
