Minstrelsy tropes worked well for creating a cartoon animal. The tropes cued audiences to expect a rebellious, active, amusing character.

No, wait, uhhh… God said Thou shalt not kill… Uhhh…. *Flips through pages in Bible* But they do deserve it! J-just shut up liberal SNOWFLAKE! (That’ll show em!) Let’s go Brandon! Log in to Reply Texas is not pro-life, Texas is pro-birth. Once person is born, they don’t give a shit. Log in to Reply LMAO the last thing Texas is is pro-life Log in to Reply they only care about a human before it’s a human Log in to Reply because they prefer to control women Log in to Reply Texas is not pro life. They’ve always been about controlling women’s bodies. Log in to Reply Pro life is often pro control and pro barbaric consequences. Quality or quantity of life tend to not have much to do with it Log in to Reply Pro life is a term used to describe opposition to termination of a developing human not opposition to the death sentence for convicted criminals. Log in to Reply Well, not those lives… Shit, they don’t even care about the babies after they are born! Log in to Reply The death penalty is allowed in Texas because the state believes that some crimes are so heinous that the perpetrator deserves to be put to death. This is a different type of pro-life stance than the one normally associated with the term, which typically refers to the belief that life begins at conception and should be protected at all costs. Log in to Reply Because a clump of cells matters more than actual people. Log in to Reply The fetus is innocent and the criminal is guilty. Seems pretty clear. Log in to Reply They believe in killing guilty people Log in to Reply Because prolife it’s a dog whistle phrase for controlling other peoples lives Log in to Reply It’s not just Texas, it’s Republicans in general. Log in to Reply Because they’re hypocrites. Log in to Reply Very much pro-death when it comes to guns, too. Just kill anyone you want, whenever you want. 🙂 Unless you’re a woman. Log in to Reply Allot of Humans care more about Ideology than actual humanity. Log in to Reply They are not bro-life. Log in to Reply You have to get to 18 to have the right to die Log in to Reply Because they live in Texas… Log in to Reply In their view, one is trying to protect an innocent life and the other is ending the life of someone who had their chance and did terrible things with it. I’m not saying that I agree with either, but the logic seems pretty straightforward Log in to Reply Well the Texans football team sucks so theres that Log in to Reply Trust in the state, not the state of the patient. Log in to Reply Because some people deserve it Log in to Reply Because rapists and pedophiles are not worth living. Log in to Reply Despite the name, “pro life” does not mean “in favor of life”. It’s just a marketing ploy to make the opposite stance logically named “anti life”, and no one would want to be anti life, right? Therefore pro life is the right and only logical stance to have. Pro life is just the position of not wanting abortion to be decriminalized. Log in to Reply Because you’re the property of Texas and they can do whatever they want with your body. Log in to Reply Because its not about preserving life, its about preserving power and control. They have the power to force a baby into the world and they have the power to end its life. Log in to Reply I know Reddit is full of weirdo lefties who believe a man in a dress is a woman, and worship pedophile John money, so here’s an easy answer… Babies are innocent who never asked to be conceived in the first place. The other is someone who committed a crime that’s so heinous, they can’t be integrated back into society, as well as harmful to other prisoners. Log in to Reply Two wrongs (unprotected sex and an abortion) don’t make a right. Log in to Reply Because you can pro life and pro death at the same time shithead. Log in to Reply Really? How is that even a question? I’m pro-choice, and it still makes 0 sense. A baby in the womb has no power to dictate it’s own existence. A guy that killed/ate three kids made that concious choice to do so, and should be summarily removed from the earth. Fuckin’ duh…..
