Pro tip:  Lawyers are paid to argue the law and adhere to courtroom rules.  They are not paid to believe what they argue.

Wait until someone tells subby that some of the ACLU lawyers who defended neo-Nazis were Jewish.

Just like abortion.

Just like every lawyer who defends an accused murderer is actually pro murder.

You are a complete moron.
