The Left’s Schadenfreude Fraud
Townhall.com ^ | March 15, 2012 | Janet M. LaRue

Posted on 03/15/2012 4:38:24 AM PDT by Kaslin

Schadenfreude, according to Webster, is “enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others.” It encapsulates the essence of women using government to force others to pay for their contraception.

The fraud is in hustling the con as a women’s health issue. It makes sense only to abortion zealots who think pregnancy is a disease or a parasite.

The grand dame of abortion rights, Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), held a little Republican bashing session with three members of the “House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee” on Feb. 23, which she and her media friends passed off as a “congressional hearing.”

Pelosi said the “hearing” was for taking “testimony” from Sandra Fluke, a 30-year-old, third-year student at Georgetown University Law School. According to Pelosi, Fluke “was blocked from testifying at a recent Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing by Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).”

Also blocked were 312 million other Americans irrelevant to the hearing topic.

Pelosi introduced Fluke as “as the President and Secretary of the Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice,” which, she did not mention, unjustly discriminates against unborn women.

They’re fighting imaginary bogeymen who want to “ban” birth control, much like people who want to “ban food” because they don’t want to pay a stranger’s restaurant tab.

Pelosi also said that “Sandra will continue to serve women and our committees as a leader in the field of public interest law.” Sounds like there’s a taxpayer-funded job in Congress awaiting Sandra where she will be free from the burden and oppression of having to pay for her own birth control, which she claims costs $3,000 for three years.

Fluke said she hears daily from women “from Georgetown or from another school or who works for a religiously-affiliated employer,” who’ve “suffered financially and emotionally and medically because of this lack of coverage.”

Where are those Hollywood catastrophe fundraisers when you need one?

Any person who can get admitted to Georgetown Law School should be able to find the Planned Parenthood clinic 1.7 miles from her school, or perhaps affirmative action has run amok once again.

If Planned Parenthood runs out of free birth control pills, a 30-day supply sells for $9 at the Target near Georgetown. That would be $324 for three years, leaving $2,676 for candles and wine.

Georgetown doesn’t include contraception in its student healthcare insurance because it’s a Catholic school. Fluke admits that she chose Georgetown for the purpose of changing its policy, according to the Washington Post. Fluke also wrote an article arguing for insurance coverage for sex-change surgeries.

Talk about church reform. Martin Luther, step aside.

Remember the shrieks?“Keep Your Rosaries off My Ovaries!”? Thanks to the ObamaCare mandate, it’s now?“Their Ovaries Trump Your Rosaries.”

Compounding the comedy of errors, Rush Limbaugh made uncouth comments about Fluke on his radio show, for which he rightly apologized, and which Fluke dismissed as “insufficient.” Forgiveness could curtail her victimization tour of mainstream media.

It reminded Obama to never let a crisis go to waste. He interrupted his nonstop campaigning to make a phone call to Fluke on March 2, just before she appeared with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC. According to Fluke, “He did express his concern for me and wanted to make sure that I was OK, which I am.”

What a relief. It was touch and go there for awhile.

Obama continued chapter two of “I’m Down in the Polls with Women” at his press conference on March 6. He said he called Fluke because she made him think about his daughters:

And the reason I called Ms. Fluke is because I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on. I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way. And I don't want them attacked or called horrible names because they're being good citizens”

Chris Matthews got all tingly again because Obama’s call to Fluke reminded Matthews of President John F. Kennedy’s call to Coretta Scott King, the wife of Martin Luther King, after her husband was arrested in Georgia.

Maybe Matthews will apologize for being a flippant white guy and Obama can call the King family. His polls aren’t so hot with black Americans either.

It isn’t just fanatical feminists who cause pain and embarrassment to thinking women and men.

Seriously, Mr. President, if you’re short of role models for your daughters, here’s a great one you missed.

Stephanie Decker is a 36-year-old mother who put her body between her two small children and the crashing steel beams, pillars and bricks that landed on her back and legs when a tornado destroyed their three-story home. Stephanie prayed and kept telling herself to keep fighting, “We can make it. I gotta live for my kids.” She suffered broken ribs and lost parts of both legs. Her children didn’t have a scratch. Stephanie is in a hospital bed in Indianapolis. This is a woman with real health issues who will continue to endure real suffering, not the “suffering” of doing without birth control pills.

Stephanie doesn’t consider herself a hero. “I call myself a mom,” she said. “I love my kids…I wanted to do anything I could to protect them. I think any parent would.”

Maybe you could take another few minutes from campaigning, Mr. President, and tell Stephanie that the whole country is proud of her, express your concern, make sure she’s okay.

She withstood so much more than harsh, hyperbolic bluster from a radio host. There’s nowhere to go to get an apology about a tornado.

Is there a document of her whole “testimony”? I have read news accounts and detected some lies, possibly. Why not charge her with lying to Congress, IF she was under oath? Time to play hardball, dammit.

"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."

"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."

Of course, the Stupid Party is afraid to use this fluke Fluke affair to show female voters that Dems use them just like blacks or Hispanics or gays or any other voting bloc they lie to so they can corral their votes. Pubs are afraid to point this out though thankfully some Talk Radio heroes will.

The GOP would like to apologize for not owning the MSM. Of course, real conservatives are afraid to attack Obama, the rats, and the MSM for lying to the American people. Thankfully heroes like you are here to go after the GOP.

Voting for Freedom is Voting against Democrats

The Democrat party is chock full of ‘em. The people whose passion is to be as unlikable as they can be—go vote in synchronized choreography, lining up as lemmings to give away their freedom to power junkies who occupy positions in the Democrat party—the line is solid with those angry liberals—hateful, vile, bad company—the angry unemployed by choice, the angry call themselves lesbians in boy haircuts who make nearly every workplace they happen into a miserable thing for those around them, the anti-life smoozies and their friends who bring benefits to their collectivist tables upon which every top is full of other people’s stuff taken by the force of the law and guns—those who stand in line for food stamps and always want more—much more, numbskulls who believe paying union dues is a good investment, proud to be grotesque feminists, druggies, modern day hippies who are in it for the trip—politicians on the take who work hard to invent or steal as many votes as they can—no voter ID required here!—their ranks are replete with every imaginable kind of psychopath, pervert, murderer, rapist, thief, dumb-ass, violent, anarchist, communist, socialist, environmental slave, anti-religion, full of crap—full of themselves loudmouths, anti-property ownership for everyone except them, knuckle-dragging, brainless, and selfish idiots one can imagine.

To be a democrat is to be a villain—whether purposeful or not. To be a democrat is to be the worst kind of person most often produced by a public “education” that teaches nothing of substance, of truth—but produce losers out of more and more wide eyed children by telling them that having high self-esteem is more important than God, more important than country, and far more important than learning anything of substance—such as reading, writing, and arithmetic—let alone economics, history, or shhh (ethics, morality—or even good manners). To be a democrat is to be against freedom in a real sense, not illusionary—but very real—we watch these miscreants as they band together in their collectivists camps to write ever more tax bills, regulations and laws to artificially take control of everything—our lives, our very being, our money, our time, our faith, our freedoms. Erosion is no longer the word—they’re taking every bit of freedom away from us in chunks of Obama directly made or inspired orders from on high.

Oh—Hell—No!

I will not comply.

There is a vote and surely more people will vote freedom rather than for demon inspired democrat power. God help this country if we do. God have mercy on this country if we don’t.

Poor Sandra Fluke Wants You To Pay For Her $9/Month Birth Control ... But She Frolicks in Spain & Pompeii With Her Rich Socialist Boyfriend

Just when you thought the Sandra Fluke spectacle couldn’t possibly get any more pathetic, there’s this!

In the “Oh no ... say it ain’t so” category today, we have Jim Hoft’s post on 30 year-old far left activist Sandra Fluke. It turns out that Fluke, who wants you, me, our employers, and the Catholic Church to pay for her $9/month birth control ... frolics around Spain and Pompeii with her rich socialist boyfriend, Adam “Cutie Pants” Mutterperl (of the very rich, far-left, radical socialist Mutterperl family).

Golly gee, who’da guessed!

Actual photo caption: “Practice area for youth and eventually gladiators”.

I heard from a friend of a friend that happened to be nearby that Fluke’s response was “They had to practice?” Upon further explanation she sighed, disappointedly, “Ohhhh - THAT kind of gladiator.”
