Rush: If Anthony's Baby Was Killed In The Womb, Media Wouldn't Care
Real Clear Politics ^ | July 6, 2011 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 07/06/2011 1:21:45 PM PDT by Faith

"You know, what I don't understand about it is they're [the media] all card-carrying liberals. When does the death of a child bother them? I've never seen them get so upset over the death of a child," Rush Limbaugh said about the Casey Anthony verdict in his monologue on Wednesday.

"If the child had died, what, two years earlier in the womb this woman would be a star. She'd be a hero. And folks, I don't think that is a cliche to say. And I don't think it is as cheap attempt at humor. I think that while it may be uncomfortable to hear -- one of the reasons it is uncomfortable to hear is that there is an element of truth in it," Limbaugh added.

I hate to tell him but the media likes dead children better after they’re born. After all, an abortion doesn’t bring a good media circus the way the body of a young child does.

Stupid comment by Rush.

An absolutely true comment.

Had Casey Anthony chosen to murder her daughter the day before she was born instead of two years later, she wouldn't have stirred any controversy in the media.

You know this to be a fact.

Lisa Bloom, that lovely chip off the old block of Gloria Alred, said on Dr. Drew, that cases such as this are why it is important that abortion remain legal and accessible.

I would say that supports exactly what Rush is saying.

Not a stupid comment, but a truth told with piercing insight.

As many here in FR have already pointed out, this verdict is just another step down the slope. Once killing babies is ok, then why is it not ok to kill a 3-year-old? Who is supposed to be the judge? What are you suggesting, that we legislate morality???

You are right. Casey Anthony decided to use the Obama method of abortion - after the baby is born.

Sad that there is no outrage for the millions of innocent children killed each year via abortion.

Yes, Rush, you are right on the mark. Now the Obamabot females can murder unborn babies and live unwanted ones without criminal peril, and.....they have no problem with it!!! Do not be misled by the false ranting and sorrow over little, innocent Caylee Anthony’s murder, these heartless women of the Democrat Party love it!!! But......having said the truth, the Orange County leadership, the Orlando Police Department, the Orange County sheriff’s office and the citizens of Orlando hung a two year old precious gift from God to dry!!! Shame on this once great county!!! Casey Anthony will murder again!!!

Pointing out hypocrisy is a necessity. The media makes its living trying to shape public opinion. Why should they not be confronted with the truth?

I’ve always thought child murder was just a really late term abortion. The kid was maybe in the 11th trimester, so what’s the big deal?

What happened yesterday proves three things:

1)Murdering a child who is outside the womb doesn't necessairly get punishment. Children get no justice.
2) Murdering a child inside the womb via abortion methods doesn't ever get punishment.Children get no justice.
3) Murding a woman who is pregnant with child gets punishment for two murders. The woman and her unborn child are avenged.

Does anyone else see the conflict in this contradiction of the way people look at the life of those who cannot defend themselves?

Part of the media hate might be she chose not to have an abortion. That blows their template away. Wait for tomorrow if she is released. It will be a Media frenzy like the OJ chase down the Freeway. Good God!

All you seem to be doing is using buzz words - “stupid”, “too much”, and “unnecessary” don’t at all help explain what you think is wrong with Rush’s comments. I think he’s right on the money.

Unnecessary and stupid are two different things.

Rush says many things that are used as a bludgeon by the drive by media. He loves to poke them in the eye and see the hornets he has stirred up.

If one wants to say it was stupid of Rush to make this comment that is different than saying the comment itself is stupid.

When I heard Lisa Bloom, the clear context was that she though that Casey Anthony was guilty of killing her child because the child was an inconvenience and an obstacle to Casey living the life she wanted to live.

That is one of the justifications for abortion from the left. They claimed that all children would be wanted children and this sort of thing would be eliminated.

Though I imagine that the esteemed Lisa had no idea she was blowing that lie out of the water with her comment. She though she was making a good point for liberal abortion laws.

“Stupid comment by Rush.”

Why is that? It is perfectly accurate. Liberals love to murder children as long as they are in the womb and even two inches from final birth. “Late Term Abortion”

Rush bringing abortion into the Casey Anthony case is a bit exploitative and off topic. And I’m pro-life too. I’m just not Johnny-one-note about it.

It's EXACTLY on target and Rush is once again giving voice to the thoughts of millions. I see drama-filled notes of love to the Anthony child all over the Internet and from TV commentators who hate Sarah Palin because she didn't abort her child.

Why wait until the liberals bring up a topic of discussion? Why let them set the stage, tone or debate? Liberals kill their children all the time using abortion. Why not bring it up now? We are talking about the killing of a child. It is totally on topic.

For Jose Baez to say “We have to stop killing people in this country” (meaning the death penalty) is the MOTHER of all HYPOCRISIES! First of all he should relay that message to his client. This man is a liberal, and like all liberals they support the onslaught murder (abortion) of millions of unborn babies every year but don’t believe in the death penalty for murderers go figure.

Now they are going for the ones who have been born at least up to 2yrs old. They protected the murderer and disregarded the 2yr little girl (Caylee) but that’s okay because a liberal’s politics and agendas come first according to them. Caylee is dead and the liberals are celebrating the freedom of one of their own.

This is the cancer that’s spreading in America.

The fact that she was found innocent by current laws doesn’t mean she is. I know that many who live outside of Orlando have their doubts but for us who lives in Orlando and have been hearing about the case for 3yrs, find that the jury that did not follow the case closely did not have all the facts as we did in Orlando. So I don’t blame them, they did the job well that was asked of them. However the lying was so monumental for the last 3yrs it became the very evidence that should have convicted her in the first place. This is why the majority in Orange County know that she is guilty.

As for Chaney Mason to stand in front of the cameras and lash out at the tax payers of Orange County who are paying him and this massive cost, and say that we “don’t have all the facts” is a lie in its self. We have all the facts needed to had reach the conclusion of guilty.

Unfortunately the law requires that physical evidence must be presented only and if that’s the case then why are they convicting her on lying to Law-enforcement officers? Even if it’s on tape, how then can you convict a person for lying to Law-enforcement? and at the same time not convict her for lying about killing her child, after all that’s on tape also. This is why the laws must be changed. The current laws that are in place protects these murderers from serving any time. These laws have been put in place by extreme leftist, dangerous liberal activist attorneys just like the like-minded Anthony defense team thru the years.

If there is any Justus for little Caylee, it should be the following... That Casey Anthony not have any financial rest, that she pay back all Court costs, Law enforcement, private organizations, private and non private individuals, The City of Orlando, The County of Orange, and volunteers, for misleading and taking away precious time that could have been well spent looking for other missing children. Therefore I call upon all who were involved in searching for little Caylee, to seek Justus for themselves and Caylee.

God help and protect the little lives who are in their mother’s whom and those like little Caylee against any evil.

Rush is an idiot. Maybe he will give Casey a job. The cruel death of a two + year old has NOT one thing to do with the liberals. WE are suppose to by nature protect our own offspring and IF Rush, who obviously has NOT paid attention to what took place is in NO position to be bashing the liberal media.

Why is it that conservatives have this idiotic need to give liberals all the fat they will ever need to chew? A literal child was KILLED. She, Caylee, an INNOCENT 2 + year old is an individual, and conservatives think bashing the godless liberals for caring about this child is going to help their 'cause'????

Thousands of literal children are murdered every day, by taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood.

Pointing out the absurdity of mourning one while facilitating the deaths of the others is simply common sense.

How is passing over this contrast in silence helping the cause?

WE have to start someplace. The freaking liberals are the cornerstone of our death culture. Caylee was once in the womb. IF conservatives cannot demonstrate we 'care' what happens after birth, then what good are we. AND caring means we hold parents responsible for their actions. 'Pro-life' is well past the delivery room.

Rush did not bash the libs for caring about Caylee. He was trying to show that they actually promote the killing of all the unborn Caylee’s. That is the hypocrisy he was trying to address.

Apparently by his own admission Rush knows squat about this case. But that aside, IF he is going to be successful in exposing the 'death' culture then he is going to have to pay attention to how it was this live birth ended up in a garbage swamp and disregard what the jon stewart media is doing. A child one who survived the abortion mill was killllllllllled. Rush ought to be 'for' this child as much as he like to maligned the liberals for allllll those innocents dumped in abortion mills. Else his individual responsibility handle means he is only about selling TEA.

This is leftist propaganda.

Pro-lifers are in the trenches every day, from raising their own children, fostering and adopting other people's children, volunteering, fund raising, what have you.

The mythical "conservative who doesn't care about children who are already born" never existed.

He is a bogeyman invented by abortion activists.

First of all, as a regular listener of Rush, I believe he clearly cares about Caylee, just as he does all who are cast aside because they are “inconvenient.” Secondly, I believe Rush’s tea sales and profits are to benefit children of Marines, so I don’t quite understand your concern about a business venture that helps others.
