Here’s another Unfit For The Internet award. Although, it most certainly qualifies as unfit for anything.
If you haven’t seen the videos from Planned Parenthood selling body parts from aborted babies you should. They are truly shocking and abhorrent. The videos highlight something that the local and federal governments were not aware of. That Planned Parenthood not only convinces women to have abortions and carries them out, but they harvest the bodies of the killed babies and sells the body parts. Paying special attention to the parts that will bring in the most money. The callous nature that these doctors show for the bodies of the babies shouldn’t be allowed. Even Hillary Clinton has come out and said that the videos were disturbing.
Now comes in Jay Inslee, the moronic Governor of the State of Washington, to open his mouth and show why electing him was a mistake. He released a statement after he received letters from people who have a conscience asking for either an investigation to start into these allegations or funding being removed from Planned Parenthood. It’s not surprising that letters like these be sent to every governor in the union given the nature of this problem, but Governor Inslee doesn’t see it that way. The Seattle PI’s article states…
“Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a full range of affordable health care and family planning services,” Inslee said in a statement. “National extremist organizations are engaged in a concerted effort to discredit, and ultimately eliminate, an organization that so many women rely on.” (emphasis mine)
That’s right, Inslee is calling people who conscientiously object to the selling of the body parts of the babies they are aborting “extremists”. That’s right, if you have a conscience and feel that at the least an investigation to these allegations should be started, you are an extremist. It’s apparently wrong to even ask for an investigation into likely illegal activities shown in the video.
But you would be remiss if you thought that this was an original thought out of the brain of Inslee. It sounds as if he’s just parroting the how the President of Planned Parenthood feels about those who caught them in the act. His statement and his choice of words speaks volumes about how he feels with those of conscience. He’s telegraphed his actions and will not do his sworn duty to uphold the law.
And for his part, he has earned the Unfit For The Internet award. Governor Inslee, you are unfit!
Here’s a good article about how the Obama Administration (including the State Department) has tried to get around FOIA requests.
“…the Obama White House has turned stonewalling into an art form. A favorite tactic is to ignore or string out the requests. That’s what State did in Mrs. Clinton’s case, claiming it simply couldn’t get around to issuing her emails until next year…”
Well, that’s surprising. No, not really.
We all know the season. We need to find a replacement for President Obama and there’s no shortage of people who think they are capable, ready, and what this country needs. With that there’s always the media who’s willing to try to persuade our viewpoints. This provides for us a plethora of clips of media members asking some really stupid questions. Gotcha questions. One sided biased questions. Even questions that might not even be questions but more of a editorial comment posed as a question. We’ve already seen a few so far, but this has to be one of the worst so far. Just sit back and get ready to get that creepy uncomfortable feeling down your back…
Yeah, um, apparently Cruz isn’t Cuban enough for Halperin and he wants the world to know. Sorry, but that’s just a jerk thing to do Halperin. You earned to Unfit for the Internet award!
Here’s another installment for the “Unfit for the Internet” files. My daughter brought this to my attention yesterday. Apparently, it’s making the rounds in the Progressive/Liberal low information voters right now.
About a week ago a one of those fake news sites (fake as in complete satire al a The Onion) posted up this story, about how the Hose Republicans are drafting up a bill that would give the First Daughters a dress code. The so called “bill” is going to be titled the “The Respectable First Family Act”. Which from the deranged mind of a Progressive, seems perfectly legit.
Here’s a snippet of the article:
“I shouldn’t need to justify why this bill is necessary to anyone, not after seeing what they were dressed like,” says the bill’s author, Congressman Richard Head (R-UT). “Did you see the photos from the march? The First Daughters looked like pole dancers. You could clearly see their knees and even an inch or two of their thighs. And one of them was wearing go-go dancer boots…
Now, this article isn’t really what I want to bring to your attention. What I want you to do is search for “house republican dress code“. Now, by the time you read this, the search results may be different. However, there’s many sites of people posting comments containing their disgust for those Republicans, using names like “racist”, “morons” and other not so kind words. That is until someone kindly let’s them know that yes, it is satire. And then there’s a near audible sigh of relief and a well, their so stupid anyway comment.
And there’s a few sites which have posted this entirely as well with no indication that it’s a fake story. Who knows if the people on the sites even care so long as it paints their opponents in a bad light.
Yeah, you’ve been trolled. You’ve exposed yourself as the hateful, dismissive person you are. I want to see more Progressives and Liberals being exposed for who they really are.
Recently I learned a fact about the Pilgrims that settled in Plymouth that I wasn’t taught in my history classes. Given the Progressive bent in education and the tendency of revising history for political purposes, I’m not entirely surprised.
Now, we know that the Pilgrims came to seek religious freedom. They were puritans who wanted to be free to practice their religion the way then saw fit. This much we know. However, the one fact that doesn’t seem to be in the history books and all the stories is that the Pilgrims intended, and did for 2 years, for Plymouth to be a Collectivist Utopia based on the Communism of Plato’s Republic. They wanted to take care of everyone on the colony so everyone worked and shared the fruit of their labors. Nobody had private property and everyone got an equal share of the work and food. What happened as a result of following this may be a reason why this has been excluded from history textbooks across the nation.
Now, the Governor of the colony, William Bradford, wrote down in his journal what the result was.
As Governor Bradford of the Plymouth Colony explained in his old English (though with the spelling modernized):
“For the young men that were able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children, without recompense. The strong, or men of parts, had no more division of food, clothes, etc. then he that was weak and not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice. The aged and graver men to be ranked and equalized in labor, and food, clothes, etc. with the meaner and younger sort, thought it some indignant and disrespect unto them. And for men’s wives to be commanded to do service for other men, as dressing their meat, washing their clothes, etc. they deemed it a kind of slavery, neither could husbands brook it.”
It’s not surprising to me that there was resentment. What’s interesting is that they did give the system a fighting chance, to the point that they had to make drastic changes or die of starvation:
Realizing that another season like those that had just passed would mean the extinction of the entire community, the elders of the colony decided to try something radically different: the introduction of private property rights and the right of the individual families to keep the fruits of their own labor.
As Governor Bradford put it:
“And so assigned to every family a parcel of land, according to the proportion of their number for that end . . . This had a very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted then otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could use, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better content. The women now went willingly into the field, and took their little-ones with them to set corn, which before would a ledge weakness, and inability; whom to have compelled would have been thought great tyranny and oppression.”
They switched to private property and individual responsibility. Each family was responsible for their own. As a result, they produced more as individual units. So much so that they were able to trade surplus with others. Communism failed and Freedom prevailed.
The last quote that I want to provide is this.
“The experience that was had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years, and that amongst the Godly and sober men, may well convince of the vanity and conceit of Plato’s and other ancients; — that the taking away of property, and bringing into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing; as if they were wiser than God. For this community (so far as it was) was found to breed confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort.”
The last of my thoughts is this. When the LDS church headed west to avoid persecution and settled in the Great Salt Lake valley they did the same thing. They gave each family a portion of the land to till and farm as their own. For those not familiar with LDS church history, the members of the church prevailed and grew into a very industrious people. Many visitors were surprised at how beautiful they had made the valley. The state symbol is the Beehive, which symbolizes industry.
Read the full article from Richard Ebeling, he does a great job at describing what is going on.
Gary Oldman was recently interviewed by Playboy and had some responses that will catch the ear of a few people. Since its Playboy, I won’t be linking to their site but I am looking for an alternative link. However, Independent Journal Review has sections of the interview available for reading without scantily clad women leering in the background. Needless to say, some of his responses somewhat NSFW, or at least read at home away from kids.
Looks like he and I share similar feelings about “Political Correctness”:
“I just think political correctness is crap. That’s what I think about it. I think it’s like, take a f***ing joke. Get over it. … I don’t know about Mel. He got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things. We’re all f***ing hypocrites. That’s what I think about it.”
And the intellectual dishonesty when it comes to calling out racism:
“It’s our culture now, absolutely. At the Oscars, if you didn’t vote for 12 Years a Slave, you were a racist. You have to be very careful about what you say. I do have particular views and opinions that most of this town doesn’t share, but it’s not like I’m a fascist or a racist. There’s nothing like that in my history.”
Lot’s of people fee the same way as Gary when it comes the the hypocrisy of Liberal Media:
“Well, if I called Nancy Pelosi a c**t—and I’ll go one better, a f***ing useless c**t—I can’t really say that. But Bill Maher and Jon Stewart can, and nobody’s going to stop them from working because of it.”
One thing that is pointed out that has people hemming and hawing is the fact that despite his amazing body of work, he has only a single Academy Awards nomination. Obviously with some of the things he’s said there will be a few roles he’ll not be invited to read for. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t support people like him.
And if you really need an answer the title of this post poses, yes, there is something to what he is saying.
