The Unique Mixture of Idiocy and Pandering

That is today's Republican party:

"House Republicans Push Bill To Ban Abortions Based On The Race Or Sex Of The Fetus...For House Republicans, this year has been the year of outlandish answers to non-existent problems. And tomorrow, they will offer the magnum opus of their 2011 campaign against a woman’s right to choose: the Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA). The bill seeks to somehow protect the “civil rights” of fetuses by banning physicians from performing abortions based on the fetus’s race or sex."

Now, a fetus is presumably the same race as its parents.  Apparently, these parents are committing a racist murder against their own race.  There is just no end to the misuse of the legislative process that is just dandy with Republicans, as a perfectly fine substitute for any sort of real attempt to deal with the nation's problems.  I suppose that this is because dealing with our problems would involve admitting that they were all caused by the previous round of Republican behavior, so it's easier to just continue the sideshow.

Do you purposely distort?
This bill is to prohibit discrimination against the unborn on the basis of sex or race, and for other purposes.
This bill is to prevent sex selection abortions.
Maybe the left feels justified in being the party of choice by "choosing" an abortion not only based on the health of a child or mother or inability to care for a child but also the sex of one?
I am sure Margaret Sanger would be very proud of today's liberals.

Anonymous,

I just got through a war of words with another Right wing liberal-hating Anonymous (at least… I assume it wasn’t you) who advocates FORCED abortions for poor people to spare him a cent of taxes and to 'purify the gene-pool'.
FORCED sterilizations too.
Oh… and he opposes mixed race marriages.

He then called ME “a bigot” after I suggested Gingrich might not appeal to ‘family values’-minded conservatives.
Later on, he escalated that to “insulting America” (I’m a foreigner, so that was convenient).

A couple of people said he’d gone a little too far there, but mostly his fellow Right wing commenters seemed content to that stand.
If not because they agree with him, because they couldn’t be bothered challenging him.

Or maybe it’s because a hatred of liberalism excuses anything.

What has it excused you of lately?

Grow up, Anonymous. This bill exists to pander to the morons who make up the bulk of right wing voters.

When are people like you going to give up cheering on the forces that are destroying our country?
