Liberal Activists Plan House Parties to 'Protect Our Rights From the Radical Right'
CNSNEWS.COM ^ | JULY 7, 2005 | RANDY HALL

This weekend, members of the MoveOn Political Action Committee will gather in more than 1,000 households across the country to develop neighborhood mobilization plans to stop President Bush from replacing Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor with a "far-right justice who threatens our rights."

According to a press release from the organization, members attending the house parties will ask their friends and neighbors to urge their senators to "protect our rights from the radical right."

They'll also form rapid response teams that will "spring into action if President Bush chooses an extremist justice," the release stated. Hosts will also show films related to the rights they believe are in jeopardy.

"The American people don't want the government to intrude in their intimate personal and family decisions," said Ben Brandzel, advocacy director of the MoveOn PAC.

"Our members are mobilized and ready to act if the president nominates an extremist judge," Brandzel added. "This decision will last a lifetime, and our members are ready to do whatever it takes to stop a judge who would threaten our most basic rights."

In addition, the MoveOn PAC is running a TV ad on the CNN and Fox News cable networks and on television stations in states represented by senators who signed the compromise that avoided the so-called "nuclear option" of judicial filibusters.

Shocking. The left is going to freak if Bush nominates anyone not presently sitting on the 9th Circus court. Or at the very least, a card carrying ACLU member. Stuff 'em!

I took a look at Moveon. All I saw was lies and of course pleas for donations to promote their lies.

The most basic, indeed sacred, right of the left: the right to kill babies with impunity.

I agree. Bush should NOT pick a socialist liberal activist. We want the social dictators out of our face!

Yeah, like my wife's one literature professor whose grown daughter couldn't keepstraight if he was her father or boyfriend. (he later went to prison on other charges.)

I think the left need to be "spanked" very hard.

Essentially it is a bully situation. We need to stand up to the bullies fo the left or we will constantly be pushed around.

Slap them down politically so they STAY down.

You're right. Whether it be the bullies on the left or the fun-loving ROP. I just hope our "leaders" have the moral fortitude to do it.

My first thought when I read the announcement was, they must think there is some money in this issue.

Tell this to the Republican Congressional majority. They seem to have a hard time grasping this concept.

My money says Bush nominates a centrist.

For the record, the current Supreme Court vote count regarding the central pro-abortion decision Roe v. Wade stands at 6-3 (including O'Connor). This means that even should President Bush select a nominee opposed to that flawed ruling, the matter will not be reversed. Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who co-founded the National Abortion Rights Action League, but has now expressed regret for his years of abortion activism, is the best expert source on the accuracy of that "5,000 women a year will die" figure -- it's made up.

Dr. Nathanson notes that the number comes from 1972 testimony before the Supreme Court about annual female deaths from illegal abortions, confessing, "We spoke of 5,000 to 10,000 deaths a year. I confess that I knew the figures were totally false...[but] it was a useful figure, widely accepted, so why go out of our way to correct it with honest statistics?"

I'm speechless!
Who would have 'thunk' that the MoveOn mopes were for my personal decision to own a fully functional machine gun.

Man-oh-man, where do I sign up.
