Under Duress The Media Finally Covers Gosnell Case While Complaining Abt Conservative Hypocrisy
Flopping Aces ^ | 04-13-13 | Curt

A Salon writer demands to know "where were conservatives before this week?" on the Gosnell case. Apparently the writer searched for a few minutes and couldn't find any evidence that any conservative had paid attention to the case.

Curious isn't it that when the shining spotlight is pointed at the liberals, at their bias and hypocrisy, they try to turn it into "conservatives are just as bad" debate. Curious, but not surprising.

Alas, I searched for just a few minutes and found the following:

Mark Steyn two years ago:

This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers.

Ed Morrissey two years ago:

The horror show uncovered by a grand jury in Philadelphia has resulted in a significant change in Pennsylvania policy regarding abortion clinics.

...Michelle [Malkin] urges people to continue to shine a light on the Gosnell case. If this involved a dentist or surgeon deliberately murdering patients, it would be national news and we wouldn’t have to urge people to demand answers.

Jay Nordlinger two years ago:

According to a Philadelphia grand jury, one Dr. Kermit Gosnell “regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy — and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.”

...Well, whoop-de-do. This is such a weird, morally confused country. You can abort to your heart’s content, and Americans will fight to the death for your right to do it. But should you “get rid of” your baby after he has slipped the womb, we cry, “Eek! Murder! How shocking!”

Really, does “Baby D” truly care whether you get him an hour before birth or a few minutes after? Why are we so squeamish? Why does a nation that has tolerated abortion on demand for 40 years get all prissy about fishing newborns out of toilets and cutting their necks?

Our country has problems, yes, but I’m not sure they’re primarily economic.

Tina Korbe a year and a half ago:

The story of Kermit Gosnell is, perhaps, one that even well-meaning people would prefer to block out of their minds. After all, as a Philadelphia grand jury report put it, to talk of Gosnell is to talk of “a doctor who killed babies and endangered women.” Recall this most sickening habit of his: Gosnell would purposely induce the premature births of babies and then “snip” the spines of those premature — but living, breathing, viable — little persons to, as he put it, “ensure fetal demise.” In four decades, Gosnell killed hundreds and hundreds of babies in this way, collecting their severed feet in jars as evidence of his evil.

Michelle Malkin seven months ago:

President Obama can take time out of his schedule to console and promote Fluke in the name of women’s health and safety. But he has nothing to say to the dozens of black female victims and their families in Philadelphia who suffered at the hands of convicted abortionist butcher Kermit Gosnell.

Elizabeth Scalia three months ago

The Salon writer has spoken, and now the entire world knows that Conservatives have been silent on this issue. This is now truth and the silliness that you have posted simply does not exist. This is the role that Salon writers play in our world.

It is right out of the Dem playbook. It is the "everybody does it" defense.

As long as Adobe Systems keeps "investing" money, I imagine Salon will keep "publishing," which is a short way of saying "spewing communist propaganda."

I’m very curious to see how the Sunday talk shows react. This is too big to ignore now.
