Looking at how the left consistently calls out the right about how it hates blacks and women and the LGBTQ community and how unacceptable it is that a baker won’t bake a cake for a same-sex couple – how is it they never have a strong word about their own?
Take, for instance, something as heinous as Planned Parenthood selling baby body parts. The left’s comments should at a minimum start with, “If that’s what is actually happening, it’s disgusting and someone should be punished for it.” No, what they say instead is something akin to, “I can’t believe an organization would trip the Planned Parenthood employee in to telling them what’s really happening,” or, “We didn’t technically do anything illegal.” Oh, where to begin?
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the “baby butcher” of Planned Parenthood – you know, the guy who “legally” kept baby parts in his office as “specimens,” life-sized trophies of the babies he killed – elicits no outrage from the Left. Mainstream media wouldn’t even cover it until it looked like he was going to be found guilty.
How about those undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood employees suggesting underage girls come in for abortions? They were brought in by their “pimp” and advised by Planned Parenthood how to answer the questions to avoid suspicion or investigation. Oh, but the videographer trapped them, right? Because the employee would never have said that to anyone else. Sure.
And now the most recent videos expose Planned Parenthood selling baby parts, even discussing how they try not to crush the head because baby brains bring big bucks on the research market. Wait, I lied. Planned Parenthood cleared things up this week, right? They don’t sell body parts. That’s illegal. They charge for delivery, shipping and handling. (This is where you get to puke.)
Even the far-left-protect-Dems-at-any-cost Kirsten Powers said this is wrong on so many levels. So there has been a couple, and I do mean just a couple, who preface every comment with, “If the video is not edited, then this looks bad.” No. This IS bad.
We have gone from providing abortions in a clean hospital environment for women whose lives might be in danger to allowing post-birth abortions because of hair color or sex of child. Yes, Gosnell killed those kids while they were out of the womb with the cord still attached because it was a botched abortion and he couldn’t let a little thing like “the baby survived” get in the way.
I’ll ask again: Where is the outrage from the left? I don’t want to believe they’re ignorant or ill-informed or simply don’t care.
Hillary finally spoke up this week and in an old, worn-out, well-rehearsed statement she said it was once again that right-wing machine looking to squelch the woman’s right to healthcare.
There isn’t enough booze in the world to have that make sense.
Just so we get this straight, anything the right questions is an attack on the left to take rights away from women, LGBTQ, African Americans, illegals (and anyone else I might have forgotten) to do whatever they want.
We can’t have a real conversation because when the right talks about an issue, even with facts, we are “white, privileged, homophobic, women’s rights oppressing, LGBTQ hating, creepy, God- and gun-loving idiots.”
Based on the latest outrage, one can only conclude that for the left, equality applies only to those who believe in everything they do, the way they do it, and with the fervor they do it with … or you’re wrong.
The left is always extremely quiet whenever there’s a legitimate problem with one of their own issues or people.
Benghazi: We now have proof the administration knew days ahead of time there would be trouble; they were asked for help, and they did nothing. And then afterward, they tried to cover up their major mess. Outrage on the left – zero.
IRS: We now have tonnage of testimony and newly found emails and memos that there were targeted investigations against conservative, tea party-type groups. The IRS director said even after all of the noise and news coverage, when they actually found the backups, they were intentionally erased, knowing full well what was on them. Outrage on the left – zero.
Hillary eMail scandal: I have 25 years in the technology business. Send me the server. Chances are better than good that I could have retrieved the info. The FBI, CIA and others weren’t given the go-ahead. Mrs. Clinton has changed her story more times than a hooker takes her clothes off on sailor homecoming week in San Diego. Polls show she is one of the most distrusted people in politics. Outrage on the left – zero.
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The reality is, the left thinks the’re the only ones who have all the answers. No matter what disaster is in front of them, they continually overlook anything or anyone on their team for the betterment of their party, regardless of the impact to the country. What else will they overlook?
I can only conclude from the left’s silence on all these issues – Iran, Israel, selling baby parts, purposely erasing incriminating emails, lying about Benghazi, not revealing where contributions come from, taking contributions as Secretary of State – that the left is perfectly comfortable with, and even supportive of, this level of corruption.
Maybe we should just adopt the Mexican government model and get it over with.
If the best leader and candidate they have is a morally corrupt, lying cheater, what does that say for the rest of them? Where is the outrage?
