I have to break my own commandment of keeping Monday holy.
Via Mr. G and The Other McCain, feminist blogger Amanda Marcotte, who is so toxic that she was fired by the John Edwards campaign, accuses Mitt Romney of being pro-eugenics for telling college seniors, “If you meet someone you love, get married. Have a quiver-full of kids if you can.”
Quoth the genius Marcotte, “MItt [sic] Romney’s speech borrows from extremist anti-feminist, eugenics-style Christian rhetoric.”
Let that sit for a moment.
Amanda Marcotte immediately equates having babies with hatred, and by using the eugenics comparison, with death. Having babies is hatred and death. Meanwhile, the big meaning that Marcotte takes away from the interest in the Kermit Gosnell trial is that “the feeding frenzy over Gosnell is a sobering reminder of how much hatred there is out there towards women.”
Right. Hatred toward women. Like the women who died in Gosnell’s filthy clinic, not to mention the “fetuses” that Gosnell and his assistants killed with scissors.
This is instructive. It’s the ultimate leftist deconstruction of basic truth: People who love each other and have children together represent hatred and perverted scientific theories (espoused by the founder of Planned Parenthood, by the way,) while a phony doctor who got his jollies killing the babies of low income black women is a responsible scientist who perhaps should have been watched more closely.
I didn’t want to write this, but the story made me mad. And just to chill out, and because it’s National Offend a Feminist Week, here’s a post from the American Spectator that will really offend feminists, and here’s Katy Perry falling out of her bikini (NSFW.)
Update: Thanks to The Other McCain for the link. I tried to avoid Marcotte’s craziness, but there comes a point when it’s time to stop being afraid to tell the truth.
Belated Update: Thanks to Mike G for the tweet earlier.
