Feminism unmasked

If the feminist movement was authentic, there would be many things you’d expect to see that don’t happen.

  • When a Jerry Brown staffer called Meg Whitman a whore, you’d expect NOW — the National Organization of (unaborted) Women – to back Whitman, not Brown.  But even though Whitman is pro-abortion, she has the audacity to oppose partial-birth abortion (aka infanticide) and supports parental notification laws (so your public schools can’t take your daughter to have your grandchild destroyed without your knowledge).  Therefore, Whitman is unsupportable by NOW, even when a male on her male opponent’s team calls her a whore.
  • They should be rejoicing about all the Republican women running for office.  But alas, they aren’t pro-abortion so NOW hates them the way they hate Sarah Palin.

The list goes on, but you get the idea.  Feminism isn’t about helping women, it is about abortion and the destruction of the family.

Be sure to check out the new blog by Duane and Mathew, The Aristophrenium.  I’m not sure what the title means, as Dictionary.com not only didn’t recognize the word but wondered if I really meant to search for “iris diaphragm.”  Uh, yeah, that’s what I meant to type . . .

Seriously, these guys are great and their blog is off to a good start.

I’m pretty sure some pigs flew today.  Even the NY Times realized that the opposition to the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad by NOW, NARAL and other pro-abortion organizations is misguided.

Back to reality: Dem. Senators Spent Weekend with Bank, Energy, Tobacco Lobbyists — That can’t be right.  I thought only Republicans did that sort of thing.

Many of Obama’s religioius supporters are jumping ship — they seem to have figured out that they were being used.  But many were fakes, anyway, as they were just politicians masquerading as Christians.

Another global warming lie: Climate chief was told of false glacier claims before Copenhagen.   But just because these guys have been caught in amazing, fantastically expensive lies that they personally profited from doesn’t mean you can’t trust them, right?

Question: Would every Liberal-controlled school system be better if a hurricane hit it?  Answer: Probably.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan, one of the Chicagoans brought to Washington for “The Golden Age of Hope and Change” (aka, “The Unmitigated Disaster of Unprecedented Proportions”), said recently that “the best thing to ever happen to the school system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina”.

He’s right.

New Orleans public schools were terrible before Katrina.  Post-disaster, they were rebuilt from the ground up, along a charter school model that’s already showing great progress.

I’m actually glad to see NOW — the National Organization of (un-aborted) Women — protesting Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl Commercial, as it will draw more attention to it. 

So, the point is that people who think Roe vs. Wade should be overturned lose their right to free speech? Does this principle apply to all Supreme Court decisions? If so, I guess we’d better get started on the Obama impeachment hearings, after the embarrassing disrespect he showed the Supreme Court during the State of the Union address.

. . .

It’s nostalgic to read a press release from NOW again. The organization was last seen sinking into the bubbling tar of the Clinton impeachment saga, babbling incomprehensibly about how sexual harassment really isn’t such a big deal when pro-abortion Democrat presidents do it.

. . .

The Tebows are not planning to use their Super Bowl minutes for a sermon, or to impose their views on anyone. They only want their chance to testify that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are not an equation that balances out to zero.

Homophobia is the “irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals.”  It applies to a remarkably small number of people, none of whom I have ever met.  It is a petty, childish putdown used by those who try to silence others who dare to criticize anything about homosexual behavior.  These people can’t argue an issue on its merits so they resort to personal attacks.

Sadly, the attacks are often effective.   Immoral and illogical, but effective.  What many people do suffer from is the rational fear that they will be called a homophobe.  Because of that, they don’t dare to share the truth of God’s word or to oppose things like teaching 5 year olds how “normal” homosexual behavior is.

STUNNING ADMISSION: UK scientists admit they make up data for political reasons to support Church of Global Warming

This story is getting absolutely no coverage here in the US, but it’s stunning to us.

UK scientists are actually admitting they make up data to promote the Church of Global Warming, because they “want to put political pressure on governments”.  So, these people invent data, such as the reports on Himalayan glacier shrinkage, create a global hysteria, dupe the Nobel Prize Committee into handing out a meritless award for research that is fabricated and fatally flawed, and the US media deigns not to report any of it.

The Nobel Prize, at this juncture, has essentially become no more prestigious than something found at the bottom of a Cracker Jacks box.

And not even one of the good prizes, like the fake tattoos or a decoder ring.

Tim Tebow already catching flak from pro-aborts regarding his Super Bowl ad.  Good for him.  This will cost him much in the way of endorsements, but he is making a case for life and his faith in a very public way.  How ironic that pro-aborts insist on the choice to kill innocent human beings but can’t live with the choice not to watch a commercial they don’t like.  Oh, the humanity!

And note the silence of NOW and other “feminist” groups on all the other commercials that objectify women. 

Bizarro world and illegal feticide: Lady charged with crime for deliberately falling downstairs to end her pregnancy, while an abortion would have been completely legal.

Quote of the week by Mark Steyn that highlights just how in denial the Democrats are.   Good news for Conservatives, I suppose.  (Hat tip: Wintery Knight)

In that interview about how he hadn’t given enough interviews, he also explained to George Stephanopoulos what that wacky Massachusetts election was all about:“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office,” said Obama. “People are angry and they’re frustrated, not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years but what’s happened over the last eight years.”

Got it. People are so angry and frustrated at George W. Bush that they’re voting for Republicans. In Massachusetts.

Great witness by Drew Brees — Go Saints!

So what have Republicans really done for the pro-life cause?

Short answer: A lot. 

Some complain that electing Republicans hasn’t done much for the protection of unborn human beings. I agree that some politicians run as pro-lifers then do little or nothing about it. But I think a lot of progress happened, such as Roberts and Alito on the Supreme Court. It has been a long, slow process with many gains. We were almost there until too many pro-lifers believed the hope-and-change message and ignored his well documented pro-abortion views. We’ll probably have Sotomayar for decades instead of a justice who would have upheld the Constitution.

But there is much, much more that they have accomplished. As Roxanne from Haemet noted (I combined a couple of her comments):

Not in chronological order:
1. The Partial-Birth Abortion ban.

2. Antonin Scalia

3. Clarence Thomas

4. John Roberts

5. Sam Alito

6. The Hyde Amendment

7. The “Mexico City” rule, which prevents federal funding/overseas aid that goes to any agency that also performs abortions.

8. Laws that make it illegal to take minors across state lines for the purposes of obtaining an abortion.

9.  The Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which passed Congress by a vote of 98-0. (Barack voted against an identical bill in Illinois.)10. Foetal homicide laws (yay!)

11. Informed consent laws.

Compare to what happens when Dems are in control, in no particular chronological order:

1. An attempt to pass the “Freedom of Choice Act,” which would outlaw every single restriction on abortion ever put into place.

2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stevens, Breyer, Sotomayor….

3. Repeal of the Mexico City policy

4. An attempt to mandate abortion coverage via taxpayer dollars.

Just saying… things would be a lot worse if not for what conservatives have been doing.

I would add “repeal of parental consent” requirements to the Democrats’ list.

Those are a lot of very specific and important gains made solely because pro-lifers were elected.  While Scott Brown is not thoroughly pro-life, his election may have saved hundreds of thousands of lives by stopping taxpayer funding of abortions.

Abortion ends the lives of over 3,000 human beings per day in the U.S.  It is the greatest moral issue of our time and worth fighting for.
