Candor From The Bully Pulpit

     There’s a lot going on just now, what with twenty-plus Democrat munchkins hopelessly seeking the presidency and saying insane stuff, Muslims driving cars onto sidewalks, and scores of left-wing commentators insisting that the Mueller report means that – surprise! – “the walls are closing in” on President Trump, but lately I can only write about one thing at a time, so let’s see…ah, here we go:

     Last night President Trump presided over a huge rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin – the state that Hillary can’t find. His speech was quite something and hit on all the major themes. However, today social media has been having a tantrum because he dared to talk about infanticide and abortion. Something that he is evidently NOT allowed to do.

     Here’s what he said at last night’s rally:

     “[Democrats] are aggressively pushing extreme late-term abortion, allowing children to be ripped from their mother’s womb right up until the moment of birth. And just this week your Democrat governor, and by the way we have Scott Walker here. He’s a great governor, he did a great job, he’s a great governor. He’s got kind of big future, but your Democrat governor here in Wisconsin shockingly stated that he will veto legislation that protects Wisconsin babies born alive.”

     He’s right. Democrat governors and legislatures all over the country are advocating for infanticide and late term abortion. Maine, Vermont, and New York legislature cheering their sickening and heinous bill are just a few of the states where this kind of atrocity is being pushed into the mainstream.

     However, where the leftists are really melting down is with the second part of his statement.

     “The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor, they take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully, and then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby. I don’t think so. Incredible, no, It’s incredible. Until this crazy man in Virginia said it, nobody even thought of that right? They didn’t, wouldn’t even think of that. Yeah late term, but this is where the baby is actually born and came out. It’s there, it’s wrapped and that’s it so to protect us in life I called in Congress to immediately pass legislation prohibiting the extreme late-term abortion.” [Emphasis in original]

     To which our favorite anti-American Congress vermin responded thus:

     But it is an execution, just as was Michael Schiavo’s deliberate starvation of his helpless ex-wife. It’s an execution through deliberate denial of sustenance. A newborn infant is unable to fend for himself. Therefore a duty of care rests upon his parents, whether they like it or not. They may not default on that responsibility without incurring the charge of negligent homicide.

     Remember what I said about the Left’s assault on the right to life? Add another data point.

     The Left’s expressions of outrage over a factually correct statement by the president – indeed, one that has been made by many persons, not all of them in the Right – are themselves important data points. Yes, they hate Donald Trump with an unprecedented intensity. Yes, they are furious about the new disinclination in the Right to “compromise” with them, gradually ceding every issue to them slice by thin slice. Yes, they are desperate to regain federal hegemony and hope – possibly mistakenly – that the elections of 2018 might point the way. But it’s when the president speaks plainly that their towers are most dramatically shaken.

     Previous conservative standard-bearers have all punked out before the kill shot. Yea, even Ronald Reagan was more inclined toward “civility” than toward candor. Donald Trump doesn’t do that. He shoots…and he scores…and We the People who elected him love him for it.

     My major question is whether President Trump’s forthrightness will elicit similar conduct from other Republicans and conservative spokesmen. To this point only a few have followed the trail he’s blazing. We need more – many more. Preferably all of them, though the “Conservatism, Inc. / NeverTrumpRump” is probably a hopeless cause. Gotta keep those D.C. cocktail party invitations coming, don’t y’know.

     If we private persons in the Right can encourage our representatives to emulate the president, surely we should do so. I’m not sure how we might go about that, but the desirability is evident. The one thing that occurs to me about it is that if there’s any right to which ordinary Americans are more sensitive than the right to keep and bear arms, it must be the right to life. The attack on the lives of the newborn ought to be stark enough to get a lot of folks exercised. Why hasn’t it happened yet? More to the point, can we make it happen?

     I will add this, from personal experience:

The attack on newborns’ right to life is not new in fact, only in Left-wing political rhetoric.

     A friend of mine – a devout Catholic, mind you – was in attendance at the birth of his third child. That child was freshly out of his mother’s womb when the attending physician asked my friend and his wife “Do you want the baby?” That “physician” suggested, quite calmly, that the boy would be allowed to die by negligence if the answer were “no.” That happened more than twenty years ago, so this has been going on for a while.

     Thoughts, Gentle Readers? Assuming you’re not too horrified to have any.



"Do you want the baby?"

Gag. Retch.

I am just done with the outrage and humiliation porn. These people can’t offend me any more. We’re way past that. To me this is valid grounds for war. We can’t run a country with people like this. Eventually they will find grounds to kill us too, and they will make it as legal as church on Sunday. The incivility hasn’t even started.

During the Obama administration (debacle), one of his advisors (Rahm Emanuel's brother? I can't recall) said that abortions should be viable and legal up to three years old. Yes, the guy truly said that. I believe it was also Ezekiel Emanuel who told a young high school student (16 or 17 years old) that if an adult wanted to have sex with him, he should just go along with it.

All part of the Left's agenda. Make the killing of unborn babies legal, then _just-born_ babies, then three year old babies, then all babies of any age. "Post-birth" abortions should be part of "Post-Modern" America, right?

The Left has normalized homosexuality and lesbianism, now they are normalizing transgender/transsexuality. They are now "coming out of the closet" about their desire to normalize pedophilia. They have been trying for ten or fifteen years that I know of to have pedophilia removed from the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). Then they intend to legalize it. That is when they will insist that children do not need permission from their parents to have sex with any adult, anymore than our young girls need permission from their parents to get an abortion, which is legal RIGHT NOW.

It is all coming together, and if it isn't stopped soon, parents will either have to watch their children being raped and used as sex toys by "adults" of every sexual persuasion, or they will have to begin killing them when they attempt it, and the "law" be damned.

If the vile muslims can be given their own uniforms and vehicles to do Sharia Patrol through the streets of New York, then parents and supporters of the Constitution should be allowed Pedophilia Patrols, with the right to arrest and/or kill pedophiles on sight (if caught in the act), but especially before they can permanently damage a child's life.

Trivia: Piers Anthony wrote a book that was an apology for pedophilia called Firefly. I was never able to read another of his books after discovering he was able, in his own mind at least, to believe that a child could be responsible for seducing an adult. The fact that the child was supposedly an alien, or possessed by an alien (I've tried to forget this book, so I don't recall which) was nothing by a poorly disguised method of trying to justify pedophilia. Perhaps it would be useful to examine his life, to see if he happened to act out the behavior not just in this book, but in real life.
