If you have a Twitter account, post about #gosnell and ask why there is a media blackout.
Just how many infanticides would an abortionist have to commit before MSNBC and Politico would find it newsworthy? (As noted below, searches for Kermit Gosnell return literally zero items.) CBS had 5 stories on dogs this week and none on Gosnell. How many would he have to commit before President Obama, the Democrats and the false teachers even acknowledged it, let alone spoke out against it?
Whenever these people bring up gun control, ask them about Gosnell and how much they spoke out against him. [Crickets chirping]
Would the media have covered the Gosnell murder trial if the abortionist had killed the babies with guns? They are milking the Newtown tragedy to destroy our freedoms yet completely ignore these murders. They know it would destroy their “back alley abortion” meme if people knew what happened in front of the alley.
And remember that Planned Parenthood and Obama fought for these killings to be legal.
From Sifting Reality, this screen shot says it all. Try it yourself at http://tv.msnbc.com/?s=kermit+gosnell .
This screen capture is not photoshopped. I took it at 8:50 PM tonight
Not. One. Story.
Same thing for Politico.
Can you imagine the coverage if it were dogs being killed?
Great quote about the media blackout on abortionist Kermit Gosnell:
“If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing.” That was the challenging observation made this morning by Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, on the floor of the U.S. House.
Because Kermit Gosnell instead allegedly snipped the spinal cords of seven newborn babies in a building called an abortion clinic, the national media has almost uniformly ignored the case, said Smith, something that he charged amounted to a deliberate “cover-up.”
“Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end?” asked Smith. “Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how—and how often—abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies?”
Kermit Gosnell is currently undergoing trial on charges of murdering seven newborn infants by slitting their spinal cords after failed abortions. Former employees of Gosnell have testified that hundreds of babies – many of them viable – were “aborted” in this way at Gosnell’s “House of Horrors” clinic.
Background checks do not get the job done — they sound like a good idea until you actually think about them. They wouldn’t have prevented any of the shootings that people are using to rob us of our Constitutional rights. Criminals won’t obey them. And so on.
As Ann Coulter says, to reduce gun violence you need to to deal with the crazy people (which Democrats aggressively fight) and advance concealed carry rights. At least that’s what all the facts say.
All the actual evidence — mountains of it, in peer-reviewed studies by highly respected economists and criminologists and endlessly retested — shows that limits on magazine capacity, background checks and assault weapons bans will accomplish nothing. Only one policy has been shown to dramatically reduce multiple public shootings: concealed-carry laws.
. . .
For most of the 20th century, from 1900 to 1970, there was an average of four mass public shootings per decade. Throughout the ’70s, as the loony bins were being emptied, the average number of mass shootings suddenly shot up to 13. In the 3.3 decades since 1980, after all the mental institutions had been turned into condos, mass shootings skyrocketed to 36 on average per decade.
Mass shootings don’t correlate with gun ownership; they correlate with not locking up schizophrenics.
And never let the pro-abort gun-grabbers get away with pretending they just want to protect children. These moral freaks think we aren’t killing enough of them in the womb, so they want taxpayer-funded abortions to kill some more.
From the “How will ‘same-sex marriage hurt you’” files: State Sues Florist Who Refused to Decorate Gay Wedding – and this is before it becomes a Federal issue.
“Arlene’s Flowers has catered to all patrons, including homosexuals, for many years,” Bristol wrote in his reply to the Attorney General. “Arlene’s Flowers has had openly gay employees.”
He told The Seattle Times that he believes the state is trying to make an example of the flower shop.
“This is about gay marriage, it’s not about a person being gay,” he told the newspaper. “She has a conscientious objection to homosexual marriage, not homosexuality. It violates her conscience.”
Anti-Anxiety Medication Used as Pretext to Confiscate Firearms - this is where this is headed, folks.
Given the current political climate, all new gun control measures must be resisted ferociously, because liberal authoritarians have made clear that they will disarm law-abiding citizens any way they can. Even ostensibly reasonable objectives like keeping firearms away from lunatics are providing cover for tyrannical abuse:
The New York State Police are suspending the handgun permits of people in the state who are prescribed anti-anxiety medication, according to Jim Tresmond of the Tresmond Law Firm in Hamburg, New York. …
“We were flummoxed by this whole matter,” the attorney said. “The HIPPA act is supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening. It’s a gross invasion of our privacy rights.”
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Does anyone really trust Big Government to keep information private? If your property belongs to bureaucrats to redistribute as they see fit, so does your medical data.
Make no mistake: You cannot trust the government not to abuse laws like this. They will take your guns at will and the burden of proof will be on you to prove how sane you are.
I’ve seen countless critics of Rick Warren be extremly respectful of him and silent in the wake of his son’s suicide, so I was suprised to see this: Rick Warren Uses Pastors.com to Attack Critics in Wake of Son’s Death. Beth Moore was his attack dog here, hypocritically hating on the (alleged) haters and exploiting his son’s suicide to use against his critics. She should know better than to support Warren’s theology, but then again, she’s part of the problem. Just a few of the terms that “loving” Beth used during this period when Warren’s critics (at least the Christians) have been nearly universally silent. Can’t you feel the love and compassion?
And Mark Driscoll played the same hypocritical game in attacking Warren’s “attackers.” But is it wrong to point out when a Christian leader does things like endorsing books calling people back to Catholicism?
“It jumped, the arm”; Update: Media score – Rutgers 41, Gosnell 0 – Media blackout continues. They cover all sorts of lesser stories but ignore the abortionist who killed babies outside the womb, had an unbelievably filthy clinic and mistreated women.
The government has no money for [fill in the blank], but they have plenty to spread homosexuality abroad. Yes, those are your taxes, doing things that should never be done.
Great and accurate send-up of gun control people.
