Alan Colmes has changed a lot since the election of Barack Obama. To be specific, hes gotten a lot dumber so much so that Im thinking about boycotting the Hannity and the Other Guy show that features him at 9 p.m. EST on Fox. Does anyone know if Keith Olberman has a show in that time slot?
Colmes, whom Ive always admired and respected (really), gave a disappointing interview to a couple of young women who work for an organization I admire called Students for Life America, or SFLA. By calling them a radical anti-choice organization, Colmes was arrogant and disrespectful to the young ladies, one of whom is only a teenager.
Colmes, like other so-called liberals, doesnt understand that the pro-life position is not anti-choice. By opposing one choice (the choice to abort) pro-lifers are supporting the over one-million choices the fetus is likely to make if it can escape the scalpel and suction tube a symbol as sacred to the feminist as the hammer and sickle is to the communist.
Colmes rude mischaracterization of SFLA was bad. His effort to draw moral equivalence between a) one act of dishonesty by the pro-life organization towards Planned Parenthood and, b) a pattern of dishonesty by the latter organization was worse. That pattern of dishonesty regarding a willingness to report cases of statutory rape is one that fairly lands Planned Parenthood in the category of radical anti-choice organizations.
A student intern, who works for SFLA did, in fact, lie to a staffer at Planned Parenthood when she claimed to be a 15-year old seeking RU-486, the co-called morning after abortion pill. She also lied when she said that she had sex the night before with her mothers live-in boyfriend whom she said was 30-something years old.
In response to the SFLA sting, which was recorded on video camera, the staffer did express a concern over the fact that this sexual encounter was statutory rape. This was before agreeing to sell her birth control to help facilitate more rape.
The staffer was right to characterize the encounter as rape. In North Carolina, if one is under 16, one has been statutorily raped if her sex partner is at least four years older. The idea behind the law is simple: Children are not able to offer consent to sex with those much older. Beyond a certain age difference, it is safe to assume the presence of coercion and, therefore, to call it rape.
It may well be the case that Planned Parenthood staffers do not want to report statutory rape because they think a fifteen-year old is fully capable of consenting to sex.
After all, the organizations fight against any form of parental notification hints that they think the age of consent should be lower.
But North Carolina does require Planned Parenthood to report cases of statutory rape, which it classifies as rape in the first-degree with a potential of life without parole. Though they said they did report the SFLA sting case, public records indicate Planned Parenthood did not. And that is more than a lie. It is an alliance with the child molester and against truly consensual sex, which is also called choice.
Alan Colmes idiotically accused the women of SFLA of conspiring to file a false report of rape. That is just silly. A report is something you file with the police. SFLA fabricated the story to Planned Parenthood precisely because they knew no report would be filed.
A womans act of falsely accusing a specific man of rape is certainly illegal. It may be a simple case of defamation or it may amount to malicious prosecution. But consistently not filing reports of known cases of statutory rape is also illegal. And Planned Parenthood knowingly lies about these illegal breaches of duty. Those are the lies Alan Colmes should care more about. He may have a teenaged daughter some day.
The saddest part of the SFLA sting is not that it distracted Planned Parenthood from doing its job as Alan Colmes suggested. After all, no one criticized the American troops for distracting the Nazis with false intelligence reports during World War II. Distracting people who are committing genocide is probably a good thing in the final analysis.
The sad thing is that SFLA is doing the job the police and FBI really should be doing. I know Alan Colmes would agree that it is the job of both local and federal agents to run stings on local offices of nationwide networks when there is credible evidence that they are engaging in complicity with statutory rape. If they fail the sting, the organization should have its federal funding withdrawn.
And, certainly, those running the rape stings cannot be held to the Colmesian requirement of revealing their true identity.
Hey Colmes, where is your outrage at the "holy grail" of the Pro-Choice movement Roe v. Wade. The plaintiff, Norma McCorvey, recently admitted that never even got an abortion after lying to her lawyers about being gang-raped. That is what the case was based on.
You have to be dumb to defend the indefensible. It goes with the territory.
Except for the Deuce in the AM for fun, not info, I've turned off FOX completely. Loofa anyone?
Read Investor's Business Daily. Merry Christmas
You’re right.I quit watching right before the selection and I feel alot better.Faux has gone the way of the dogs.
The ironic thing is that Holmes and others of his ilk are NOT really Pro-Choice.
They are simply Pro-Abortion.
If the issue become the death penalty then they suddenly become anti
If the issue is your right to -choice and claim that you as an American citizne have no right to that recourse with criminals.
Just as Holmes and other leftist are Pro-1st Amendment in they want homosexuals to be allowed to prance around a public park promoting their immorality they are Ant— 1st Amendment in that they want to deny people pf religion the right to freely express they beliefs becuase a piece of property is “owed” by the Government. Which really means it is owned by the people.
I never allow anyone to get away with claiming to be Pro-Choice in discussions. I make then take their stand on thoer issue not hide behind a generalized Pro-Chice stance
I saw this segment and could not believe that he was taking that position. Saying that they (Planned Parenthood) did nothing wrong because there was never actually a rape that occured. Would he use the same argument for pedophiles that show up thinking they are going to meet a 12 year old for sex when it turns out to be an undercover police officer instead?
Colmes was always stuck in his school boy days. His debate...cough cough...is elementary level at best.
He makes me think of those little boys in school that got picked on because they were so pathetic and whiny.
Fox has been off my tv for some time. Colmes is a waste of time.
I was shouting at the TV during that segment:
Hey Allan! Why are you so defensive about killing babies?
Why is killing babies so important to you?
Isn’t a little subtrafuge to stop baby killers justified Allan?
What is this “choice” you’re defending Allan?
It’s the Mother’s “choice” to kill her baby, Allan!
Your only objection seems to be if the Mother chooses LIFE!
Alan Colmes is the reason that the “mute” button was invented.
I quit watching the night of the election by 10:00 I had had enough.
To better debate the conservative position, one must be aware of the approach the enemy is taking.
Here in York, PA, local, off duty cops are security guards at the abortion clinic. Portesters asked them to do something about the 13 year old girls going in for abortions, which in saner times would get investigations for possible statutory rape. They were told that the cops were off duty.
so, they called the police department, the DA’s office, and anyone else they could think of, with no effect.
I can’t wait either. The I can remove the clicker proof screen that protects my TV!
