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 rely on TV entertainers to rally to their facet with all of the anger and profanity they will 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 complete 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. “In case you’re taking away our reproductive rights, at the least personal that you just’re gutless monsters.” She referred to as the Supreme Court docket an “anti-pussy posse.” The cultural elite gravitate seamlessly from being “intercourse optimistic” to negating pregnancies. Bee desires America to be identical to her native Canada, the place you may 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 struggle, and if the casualties are all underneath the age of beginning, 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 stated they haven’t taken a public place on abortion. How dare they! “Hear, not taking a stance on this concern, 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 definitely on model. AT&T clearly likes their public statements the identical manner they like their cell sign: Hilariously f—ing weak.”
Moments like these make you marvel 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, contemporary, and publicly vital instructions.”
This isn’t new or contemporary. This isn’t comedy. This isn’t journalism. It’s simply lobbying. It’s in-your-face liberalism, which the Peabody people have applauded repetitively as a “publicly vital route.” It’s so “publicly vital” that you just’re not allowed to be impartial about it. The infants must be sacrificed on the altar of “anti-cruelty.”
