Skip to comments.The Left’s Schadenfreude Fraud
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 womens 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.
Theyre fighting imaginary bogeymen who want to ban birth control, much like people who want to ban food because they dont want to pay a strangers 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 theres 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, whove 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 doesnt include contraception in its student healthcare insurance because its 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, its 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 Im 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 Obamas call to Fluke reminded Matthews of President John F. Kennedys 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 arent so hot with black Americans either.
It isnt just fanatical feminists who cause pain and embarrassment to thinking women and men.
Seriously, Mr. President, if youre short of role models for your daughters, heres 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 didnt 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 doesnt 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 shes okay.
She withstood so much more than harsh, hyperbolic bluster from a radio host. Theres nowhere to go to get an apology about a tornado.

“All Truth passes thru three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”
~ Arthur Schopenhauer (1700s)
Fluke is arguing for government to get into people’s bedroom as opposed to long pro-choice argument of getting government out of people’s bedroom
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.
>>If so, whos buying? Whos selling?
Don't need no Weatherman
to see which way the wind
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"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."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...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."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
Fluke’s best contraceptive is her face! Not to mention that douche-bag hairdo.

Pap smears deal with womens’ health. Birth control deals with hedonism.
Can someone here capture the youtube video of Letterman talking about Alex Rodriquez knocking up Palin’s daughter? I want to do something with that and for some reason cannot get keep vid to work for me.
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 bego vote in synchronized choreography, lining up as lemmings to give away their freedom to power junkies who occupy positions in the Democrat partythe line is solid with those angry liberalshateful, vile, bad companythe 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 peoples stuff taken by the force of the law and gunsthose who stand in line for food stamps and always want moremuch 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 trippoliticians on the take who work hard to invent or steal as many votes as they canno 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 crapfull 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 villainwhether 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 truthbut 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 substancesuch as reading, writing, and arithmeticlet alone economics, history, or shhh (ethics, moralityor even good manners). To be a democrat is to be against freedom in a real sense, not illusionarybut very realwe 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 everythingour lives, our very being, our money, our time, our faith, our freedoms. Erosion is no longer the wordtheyre taking every bit of freedom away from us in chunks of Obama directly made or inspired orders from on high.
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 dont.
If I hear the phrase, “I JUST WANT TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF!” one more time, I’ll barf.
ping for later
