The great thing about the presidential election season is that without a doubt Hollywood liberals will come out swinging for the Democrat. Just three weeks before voters get to choose between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington have taken part in MoveOn.org’s multi-million dollar campaign to convince you Mitt Romney will stop at nothing to control uteri.
As was the case with “Sesame Street,” the false dichotomy rears its ugly head once again. With PBS, the argument goes that if the government stops funding the very lucrative character known as Big Bird, then he will cease to exist. Now we’re told by The Black Widow and one of the Desperate Housewives that if the government doesn’t fund Planned Parenthood it too would disappear from the face of the earth — aborted, if you will — by the population at large.
Mitt Romney believes life starts at conception. If one believes that, it follows that the individual would want to protect the right to life of the most vulnerable among us (i.e., unborn babies). We can argue whether or not life begins at conception, but I’m reasonably sure that Ms. Johansson would have reservations about a woman who wants to be able to abort her child all the way up until contractions begin. If that’s the case, then she has tacitly agreed that the government has a vested interest in protecting the unborn — it’s really only a matter of deciding at which point in development it has the authority to step in.
Question for our Hollywood trio: Does it bother you that Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t question China’s one-child policy (the one where millions upon millions of females are slaughtered due to a cultural preference for men)?
What we ended up doing is setting up a system whereby we did cut by $1.2 trillion upfront, the deficit over the next 10 years. And we set up a group of senators that have to come up with another $1.2 to $1.7 trillion in savings or automatically there will be cuts that go into effect in January to get those savings. So the savings will be accomplished. But as I was talking to some of your leaders, you share a similar concern here in China. You have no safety net. Your policy has been one which I fully understand — I’m not second-guessing — of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable.
Joe Biden indicates to our Communist friends that he doesn’t see life as precious — he sees it as a potential debt problem. Biden “fully understands” a policy that is predicated on the idea that humans are a form of economic punishment … sort of like President Obama.
It is telling that Hollywood celebrities don’t have time to raise public awareness for Pakistani girls like 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai, who was shot by the Taliban for wanting an education, but they do have time to tell voters Mitt Romney would “overturn Roe vs. Wade” (an odd assertion, since that would be something that would have to be done through the Supreme Court — the same body that couldn’t bring itself to declare Obamacare unconstitutional).
No, Ms. Longoria, I am not scared of men like Mitt Romney. My wife is not, either. However, I am very much afraid of liberal men like Bill Maher, who value death more than they value life:
HBO “Real Time” host Bill Maher says he’s “consistently pro-death” — and “not one of those people who thinks all life is precious.” Even dogs can create life, he said in an Oct. 7 interview on satellite radio. …
“I am for the death penalty, although I do believe in more DNA testing,” Maher continued. “My motto is, ‘Let’s kill the right people.’ I’m pro-choice. I’m for assisted suicide. I’m for regular suicide. I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving. That’s what I’m for.”
Joe Biden is cool with death, provided it allows the Chinese to pay their bills on time. Bill Maher is cool with death, provided it clears up traffic congestion just long enough for him to make that his 8:30 p.m. dinner reservation.
Barack Obama? Good question. I suggest listening to him discuss the Born Alive Act as a Senator from Illinois. My personal opinion is that a man who calls a baby a “fetus” after it’s been born is one confused individual, even more so than the vapid Hollywood starlets who offer their services for MoveOn.org attack ads.
