The “progressives” amongst us who fervently argue for abortion don’t argue calmly or rationally when they’re dropping. As state legislators in Austin debated the “Texas Heartbeat Act” outlawing abortions after a child’s heartbeat could be detected at six weeks, Deliberate Parenthood boss Alexis McGill Johnson accused the invoice’s backers of cruelty.
“The cruelty is the purpose,” she proclaimed, “and we won’t let it stand.”
So the abortion conglomerate which dismembers and murders roughly 350,000 unborn infants for cash yearly is accusing another person of participating in cruelty. It’s cruelty to object to their cruelty.
The abortion trade can at all times depend on TV entertainers to rally to their facet with all of the anger and profanity they’ll muster. Our so-called “comedians” erupted in foam-flecked assaults on the conservative legislators of Texas after the Supreme Court docket declined to overturn this regulation.
On NBC’s Late Night time with Seth Meyers, the host bitterly complained pro-lifers don’t have a majority, and “they don’t give a f–k as a result of they’re there for all times…I imply, if that’s how our authorities goes to work, then why not have a f–king monarchy?”
That wasn’t the one obscene outburst on that program. Meyers additionally launched a “Minute of Fury” commentary from Amber Ruffin, the place she “satirically” demanded federally-funded pedicures if the federal government owned her physique. She yelled on the “dumb f—ks” and lectured “So don’t take cost of the most important resolution I’ll ever make in my entire rattling life when you possibly can’t even get me a goddamn pedicure.”
On TBS, Full Frontal feminist Samantha Bee shook her fists on the Supreme Court docket. “Should you’re taking away our reproductive rights, no less than personal that you simply’re gutless monsters.” She known as the Supreme Court docket an “anti-pussy posse.” The cultural elite gravitate seamlessly from being “intercourse constructive” to negating pregnancies. Bee desires America to be similar to her native Canada, the place you will get an abortion at any second over 9 months, and authorities pays for it, too.
On HBO’s Final Week Tonight, British import John Oliver not solely raged on the American legislators and judges, however at his personal employers at AT&T. The Left is so domineering it now insists each company should threaten politicians who oppose abortion. Each firm is meant to wage cultural battle, and if the casualties are all beneath the age of delivery, then so be it.
Oliver instructed his viewers that he demanded solutions from the individuals who pay him an estimated $8 million a 12 months. They mentioned they haven’t taken a public place on abortion. How dare they! “Hear, not taking a stance on this situation, proper now, is taking a stance,” Oliver lamented. “And both-sides-ing abortion is not actually the PR slam dunk they assume it’s. Though it is actually on model. AT&T clearly likes their public statements the identical approach they like their cell sign: Hilariously f—ing weak.”
Moments like these make you surprise why on Earth the liberals on the Peabody Awards gave Oliver’s present a “uncommon second” award “for crafting a kind that pushes each comedy and journalism in new, recent, and publicly vital instructions.”
This isn’t new or recent. This isn’t comedy. This isn’t journalism. It’s simply lobbying. It’s in-your-face liberalism, which the Peabody of us have applauded repetitively as a “publicly vital route.” It’s so “publicly vital” that you simply’re not allowed to be impartial about it. The infants need to be sacrificed on the altar of “anti-cruelty.”
