Just in case you were unaware of the various types of people that supported Brett Kavanaugh through his Supreme Court confirmation process, a city councilman from West Virginia is here to remind you of the uglier side of the far right and how they feel about women’s bodies.
Eric Barber, who serves on the city council for Parkersburg, prepared for Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS appointment by making an apparent abortion joke on Twitter: “Better get you’re coathangers ready liberals” (sic).
Facebook user Eric Engle managed to post Barber’s tweet before it was deleted, saying: “I feel obliged to post something from the most worthless piece of human garbage I’ve ever countered. Parkersburg City Councilman from District 04, Eric Barber. Let him know what you think of his remarks regarding the pending Kavanaugh confirmation. Share widely."
According to Deep South Voice Barber, who has described himself in the past as a “head hunter of alt-left liberals,” was referring to a time when someone threw a coat hanger at him at a rally and didn’t properly explain the post’s context before it was deleted.
