Wendy Davis Backers Caught on Tape Making Fun of Greg Abbott for Being Paralyzed
Life News ^ | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 01/23/2014 7:28:46 PM PST by Morgana

A new undercover videotape may spell further doom for the campaign of Wendy Davis, the pro-abortion candidate for governor in Texas whose sole claim to fame is having filibustered against a bill to ban late-term abortions.

The tape has the Davis campaign mocking her pro-life opponent, Greg Abbott, for being paralyzed. This is the second time the Davis campaign has come under criticism for mocking Abbott’s disability.

Conservative activist James O’Keefe released the video today:

wendydavis12While investigating Obamacare Navigators, Battleground Texas, and their connection to Obama’s Organizing for America, we caught some deeply offensive comments on tape.

It seems Battleground Texas and Wendy Davis’ strategy to win the Governor’s seat is to mock Attorney General Abbott’s disability. We caught Davis supporters and Battleground Texas staff on tape making crude statement such as “isn’t that amazing to think of? He’s in a wheelchair and we want to stand with Wendy?”

Even more disturbing was an election official who when asked about forging signatures covered her ears and then went on to admit, “People do that all the time.” A Battleground Texas volunteer then added, “I don’t think it’s legal but I didn’t hear you say that.”

UPDATE: Davis has responded to the video, calling it “abhorrent:”

“Greg Abbott has persevered through great personal challenge to raise a family, have a productive career, and for that he deserves our respect,” she said.

At age 26, Abbott was struck by a falling oak tree that injured his back as he jogged by. He has used a wheelchair ever since and has become an eloquent pro-life advocate — speaking up for both the disabled and the unborn.

The accident serves as a reminder that regardless of someone’s circumstances, he or she deserves a chance at life, Abbott has said.

“As I laid there motionless on the ground, gripped with pain, as helpless as a child in the womb, I knew my life had changed forever,” he said at the National Right to Life convention in June. “Some people think it’s easy to write off the lives of the disabled or the different. But every day, God reminds us that all life has value, no matter the form.”

Doom? They’ll probably use it as a fundraiser, such is the modern Democratic Party.

Did Biden fly in to say “Stand up Chuck” and laugh along with the other evil dems?

When you don’t respect life at the beginning, you don’t ever tend to respect it.

It's all apart of the over all agenda to categorize certain people as subhuman just like Nazi Germany did during the 1930s and during WWII and we know the history in how that all turned out.
It's all part of eradicating all the undesirables in this world eventually working it's way of getting rid of Christians and Jews i.e. Israel world wide.
The devil is in the details and he ( I rather not call him a he, it's a it ) has many detailed plans.

That is not the case here. This is what my mom always said “it will someday come home to you” sort of thing.

They could one day be easily paralyzed.

Democratic Party ?
It's not by accident that it sounds so much like demons.
Any group, party, agenda that supports abortion, homo sexuals, anti-Christian , anti-God is demonic.

More like what Hillary Clinton said " that women are Morally Superior than men " , that's a laugh, as if ? She has a monopoly on morality ?
Yes the Liberals have this so called moral supremacy to air this, that is ? of course in their own made up fantasy in their relative morally to air this.
They WILL find many ways to justify this in their own minds.
The bible tells us to not be wise in your own eyes.

Exactly! These people support the murder of babies, of course they don’t care about someone in a wheelchair..if they had it their way they would abort him now..a disabled person doesn’t serve the progressive “purpose”

"...he deserves a chance at life."

Unlike unborn babies, Wendy, or did you just forget to "tighten up your language" again?

That joke was abhorrent, but abortions until the last breath are sacred to Marxists.

These people are so deceived and pathetic. I pray that something breaks through the walls around their hearts to let the pus drain out.

Neither clinton nor davis are morally superior to an alley cat...nor an obama for that matter. Once they broke over the last redline...there's been no going back.

Their sense of IMPORTANCE is as skewed as Googles. choices of Date of Importance to Commemorate on their Search Engine Page... but far less humorous

Eskomo pies, use to love them but can't eat them like I once did.. just like those other yummy pies can't remember the name but you don't need to freeze them.
Outdoor freezers are coming back in style, turn off your power hungry freezer and freeze your food for free.

Yeah, she’s over.

One of the more epic flameouts on the liberal side in recent memory. I hope we never hear from this baby-killing liar ever again.

Even in middle tn leave a 12er of diet Dr pepper cans in the back of my pick up and its busted everywhere

Wild

Its 1 right now....in rural Williamson

Coldest southern winter I’ve seen I think in 56 solar orbits

I go out and break horse water tank 5-6 times a day and they are super thick coated and eating 2-3 times normal volume

Amazing

It is cold

We’ve been seasonal cold only maybe 7-10 days since mid November.....mostly below freezing

I watched kids sliding about on fishing ponds with ice 8-14 inches thick

Crazy

Only water not frozen is that moving....even some ice on bank of Cumberland....very rare

Trying to keep our car washes open is....challenging

Good point. They might as well have added, "we are legion."

Hey, I was told that when the day women would be in charge of things, government would become warmer and more understanding and less callous and ruthless.

Ah, well, this is marketing.

All I know is that Bill and Ruth went for a drive. Bill hit a tree and Ruth flew ruthlessly.

At least it warmed up to 29 degrees today. And it’s sunny. Should get some car wash customers.

Definetly the coldest in middle TN I’ve been in these last 24 years.

It was 4 degrees when I went to bed last nigh.
