Colorado Springs, Colorado – As a writer having lived in Colorado Springs nearly all my adult life, I found the reaction of the president and various members of the fourth estate to the shooting not far from where I live to be especially galling, bordering on unforgivable.
Your Dictionary is helpful in refreshing understandings of “irony” and “hypocrisy.” The definition of irony is the use of words where the meaning is the opposite of their usual meaning, i.e., “Someone who talks a lot while having nothing to say,” and “A whaling ship that is used to save whales after a tsunami.”
Likewise the same source is helpful in reminding one of hypocrisy: “Saying one thing while doing another” and “writing a book about truth and honesty while telling lies.”
While expressing his grief over the families suffering from losses of loved ones following the shooting at the Planned Parenthood clinic on Friday, President Obama’s real agenda is taking guns away from American citizens:
Enough is enough. This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal.
[If Americans] truly care … then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them.
The last thing Americans should have to do … is comfort the families of people killed by gun violence … and yet, two days after Thanksgiving, that’s what we are forced to do again.
At fault was not the evil that permeated the mind of the miscreant, one Robert Lewis Dear, a 57-year-old-man from North Carolina, but the weapon that he used, according to the president: “[Dear] opened fire with an assault weapon [that] forced fear upon … more Americans and their families….”
Members of the fourth estate, especially and particularly the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, could not resist the same temptation, but with a different agenda: this was an attack by crazies still motivated by the crusty and outdated idea that abortion is murder. Wrote Times’ journos Julie Turkewitz and Jack Healy:
Officials from both law enforcement and Planned Parenthood said they did not know whether the group’s Colorado Springs center had been specifically targeted.
But the attack carried echoes of other violent assaults on abortion providers….
Since abortion became legal … many abortion clinics and staff members across the country have been subjected to harassment including death and bomb threats, and hundreds of acts of violence including arson, bombings, and assaults and eight murders, according to figures compiled by Naral Pro-Choice America Foundation.
Just the fact they would stoop to the level of Naral to provide grist for their mill is enough to bring tears to the eyes. Since 1969 Naral has been promoting murder under the guise of women’s rights, with astonishing success. Not only does that ugly gaggle of leftists and murderers rate a long and positive narrative at Wiki, it also qualifies for a much longer and darker picture at DiscoverTheNetworks.com, a site that aggregates the truth about Naral from dozens of more dependable sources.
Only slightly less offensive is that from the Wall Street Journal in its coverage of the massacre:
The motive for the assault, and whether the clinic was the target, was unclear. Abortion clinics have been targets of bombings in the past.
Dear’s attack might have been motivated by revelations that Planned Parenthood was selling baby parts for profit:
In recent months protesters have gathered outside clinics after undercover video from an anti-abortion group showed a Planned Parenthood official discussing reimbursements for supplying fetal tissue for medical research.
The real reason for the attack, however, was announced by none other than the president of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Vicki Cowart:
We don’t yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don’t yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack.
[But] we share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.
And then she gushed with this massive display of irony:
We will never back away from providing care in a safe, supportive environment that millions of people rely on and trust.
What about the millions of lives that have been snuffed out at PP clinics all across the land ever since Roe v. Wade? In still another note of staggering irony, it was Colorado John Love who boasted of being the first governor to approve the murder of innocents in 1973.
On Friday most of those working inside the clinic, along with their “customers,” escaped with their lives. On Mondays and Tuesdays the clinic performs abortions. In the irony of ironies, unborn babies entering the clinic on those days never leave it alive.
Who speaks for them?
