And Thomas Jefferson raped slaves. How many on the right name him as one of the greatest Americans? Do his views on slavery and other atrocities incident to the time period devalue his contributions to progress? I would suspect that conservatives would say no on Thomas Jefferson, but would then go on to condemn Margaret Sanger for her racist "views" (even though her apparent racism didn't lead to the ownership or sexual assault of black individuals had her hands).

We're used to MSNBC's Toure saying outlandish things, but his latest commentary in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade is by far the worst. During a segment last week, Toure went on what he called an abortion rant in which he thanked God and country abortion was there to "save him" at a time when taking care of a baby and becoming a father would have been inconvenient for him. He also refers to abortion as a "safety net."
