A West Virginia lawmaker who left the Democratic party because he felt it was “anti-Christian” is under fire for taunting women to get their “coat-hangers ready” in anticipation of Roe v. Wade being overturned with the help of newly-installed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
In the now-deleted Facebook comment that was screen-captured by several commenters, Parkersburg City Councilman Eric Barber was busted for the comment that drew the ire of others on Facebook who were appalled at his grotesque reference to back-alley abortions.
According to the Friendly Atheist, Barber wrote the ungrammatical, “Better get you’re [sic] coathangers ready liberals,” in response to West Virginia’s own Democratic Senator Joe Manchin says he would support Kavanaugh.
Barber had previously made a big show of the leaving the Democratic Party one year ago after saying the party was “anti-Christian.” After leaving the party, he annouced he had become an independent.
After complaints were made about his tasteless Facebook post, Barber deleted it and accused anyone who took a screenshot of it of trying to get him fired while also making more jokes about a woman’s right to choose.
