I thought I had figured it out!
— Kim (@JBaileysMom) September 14, 2016But, sadly, no - the Bad self eater (or Federal Beast) countdown was not what I expected, but I can appreciate the elaborate ruse to gather tons of social media attention to a very important issue of the day - abortion. T. Russell Hunter appeared at the end of the countdown and gave an anti-abortion presentation, which, in part, was difficult to watch, especially in the graphic medical abortion portions.
He got a bunch of flack for what some felt was a huge letdown which kind of proves Hunter's point. We are so caught up in what we perceive to be big government evils that we have been desensitized to abortion.
Not everyone was a hater and tweeted approval for the big reveal and message it promoted:
Honestly shocked at the contempt shown toward a man speaking his conviction (who just an hour ago had your rapt attention). #badselfeater— Deni Tilley (@DeniTilley) September 14, 2016
I am in no way disappointed by the #BadSelfEater reveal. To the contrary, I am convicted and inspired. #Jesus— Jeff Delaney (@jdelaneyNOIR) September 14, 2016
