Well, at least this liberal admits that abortion is unpleasant.

Behold, on this day of January 14 anno Domini 2014 it hath been announced that our Lord and Savior Barack H Obama will meet with that guy in the funny hat who lives in Italy. Quoth the holy oracle CNN,
Obama has cited the Pope’s inequality stance himself in an economic address in December.
“Across the developed world, inequality has increased,” Obama said. “Some of you may have seen just last week, the Pope himself spoke about this at eloquent length. ‘How can it be,’ he wrote, ‘that it is not a news item when an elderly homeless person dies of exposure, but it is news when the stock market loses two points?’”
Blackmailers Don’t Shoot rejoices at the fact that Pope Francis is the first Pope to be worthy of Barack Obama. Perhaps Obama’s healing power will convince the Pope of the error of his ways on gay marriage and abortion. Unfortunately, the stubborn people will probably continue in their murmuring. Quoth Allahpundit,
My hunch is that people’s views of redistribution are similar to their views of contraception: They may admire the Vatican’s position as nobly motivated but ultimately they have to protect themselves.
We live in wicked times.
Blackmailers Don’t Shoot goes Renaissance.
As the great Shakespeare may have said if he had a blog, “The fine art of poesy hath become a bastardized art form for untalented hacks, much like graffiti and deejaying.” Indeed, such appears to be so. For although the great Sir Philip Sidney once wrote that the chief goal of poetry is to teach and to delight, borrowing from the master Horace, in these rough times the Muse hath become the oracle of the simpleton, Viz. yonder poem from Katie Helm, which hath been quoted by Ace:
If my vagina was a gun, you would stand for its rights,
You would ride on buses and fight all the fights.
If my vagina was a gun, you would treat it with care,
You wouldn’t spill all its secrets because, well, why go there.
If my vagina was a gun, you’d say what it holds is private
From cold dead hands we could pry, you surely would riot.
If my vagina was a gun, its rights would all be protected,
no matter the body count or the children affected.
If my vagina was a gun, I could bypass security,
concealed carry laws would ensure I’d have impunity.
If my vagina was a gun, I wouldn’t have to beg you,
I could hunt this great land and do all the things men do.
But my vagina is not a gun, it is a mightier thing,
With a voice that rings true making lawmakers’ ears ring.
Vaginas are not delicate, they are muscular and magic,
So stop messing with mine, with legislation that’s tragic.
My vagina’s here to demand from the source,
Listen to the voices of thousands or feel their full force.
We shall leave aside the abuses of rhyme and metre, and ignore that the poetaste displays all of the sophistication of a Coldplay song, to point out that this obvious Popish conspiracy was clearly designed by Olde Scratch himself to lend credence to idiotic ideas. For this is the only explanation for the witchery behind this kind of idiocy.
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.
