Brooks: Man, these Democrats really love abortion, donít they?
Hot Air ^ | Ed Morissey

Posted on 09/05/2012 5:55:04 AM PDT by hcmama

New York Times columnist David Brooks told PBS that his one “cavil” was that voters want to hear about jobs and the economy, not taxpayer-subsidized abortion on demand:

The abortion mills are one of their biggest political donors. It doesn't matter how many infants die - as long as they're everyone elses infants.

“You know, you’re electing someone — we’re going to spend four more years with these people — and after this speech, I think a lot of people will say, ‘Yeah, I think I kind of do,’” Brooks said.

I have no idea what this idiot is talking about.

It sure is a good thing the republicans never use abortion as an issue to stop legislation or dominate conversations.... Right!

They seem to think that all women care about is having the right to snuff out a human life. They couldn’t be more wrong.

Maybe the voters just care about the crease in Obama’s pantleg.

“They couldn’t be more wrong.”

I do believe that the majority of them believe and even celebrate the murder of innocents. How else can they explain their willingness to vote for the party of evil?

“New York Times columnist David Brooks told PBS that his one “cavil” was that voters want to hear about jobs and the economy, not taxpayer-subsidized abortion on demand:”

Excellent point. The numbers of people who are becoming prolife are growing. If they keep it up they’re going to lose thousands of votes.

I think most Liberals have a fair-middlin amount of self hate, as well as, hate for their country and ethnic group (as long as they’re white). Thus, abortion appeals to their barely-repressed desire to erase themselves from the face of the Earth.

I think it’s more along the lines of, deep down almost all normal people recognize that abortion is wrong (particularly the women who have them), but they think that it’ll be better if more and more people are subject to the same feelings. They hope that the feelings will go away if abortion becomes more common, but in the end it turns out being a misery loves company thing.

What you said is true of homosexuality. Almost all people find homosexuality inately repugnant—especially the male variety. However, by trying to normalize it (really celebrate it), they hope to make it more common.

I think both trends are indicative of Liberals wanting to reduce the number of White people, which they view as the root of all evil and oppression. Both abortion and homosexuality are central to that goal.

The majority of the public is against tax payer funded abortion on demand and when it comes to a vote in the majority of the places they’re against gay marriage too. Losers can’t stop celebrating both those issues on camera at the DNC.

And Hot Air mentioned something I post last night (im watching you Hot Air), that all the warm and fuzzy talk about Obama from Moochelle was shit we’ve heard all before from her and from the media kissing his ass for five years. Was there anything new? People wanna hear about jobs.

Anyway, sorry for the salty language. :D

The Democrats have moved far beyond the old Clinton platitudes about keeping abortion "safe, but rare." The old school Democrat line was that we hate abortion as much as you do, but who are we to judge the circumstances which compel a women to terminate a pregnancy?

This crowd thinks abortion is the ultimate expression of womanhood. I think the majority of pro-choice independents are only marginally so--they want abortion to be legal under certain circumstance, but believe it is morally reprehensible. They could not be more at odds with the glorification of snuffed out pregnancies on display in Charlotte.

Liberals are a bitter, envious people.
They hate to see people happily married, because they're not.
They hate to see happy mothers, because they're not.
They hate to see people content with prosperity, because they're not.
They hate to see people with a strong faith, because they have none.

Picture a happily married man and woman with three beautiful children. They have a house, a white picket fence, a dog, and an SUV. Mom stays home to raise the children, they go to a nice private school, and dad has a wonderful job.
OMG! They'd be a target for destruction by any liberal! Seeing all that happiness every day would drive them insane!

In short, if people are happy, liberals want them destroyed. Ever meet a happy liberal? There's no such thing. All their issues are designed to harm OTHER people- not themselves.

Human sacrifices to Baal. In Soetoro’s second term the sacrifices would expand into the elderly and others not worthy of nationalized healthcare.

I bet even most pro-choice voters think abortion is not something you actually celebrate. These freaks at the DNC do.

Her speech was just boilerplate political wifey crap. You realize how in the tank the media are for Obama when you read the over the top reviews for what was really just a very average speech. The bar is set very low for the O’s (and it always has been.)

Baal... no these people worship the “Lilith”, the ‘wife of Satan’ who feeds on the blood of innocents. This explains the “Lilith Fair” concert series and a lot of other things.

It is surreal. The glorification of abortion, the removal of every mention of God from the platform, the repudiation of Israel. It's like a right-wingers parody of the modern Democrat. Except it's real.

As I’ve been saying: Give the liberals what they want, good and hard.

Help extirpate them by making sure they don’t reproduce. Drive every liberal woman who is pregnant to an abortion mill with a smile upon one’s lips. Affirm her “choice.” Heck, offer to sterilize them for no additional fee.

In one generation, there will be no “abortion movement.” The liberal advocates will no longer be able to reproduce, the successive generation of liberals will have never been born and the debate will be all over but for the crying on their part.

That is the basis for the whole democrat platform.

And homosexuals "marrying." It's also part of their insane platform.
Their entire platform is nothing but the advocacy of sin.

You're absolutely right -- you've described the quintessentially American traditional family. There is nothing the Left hates more than that, and they work 24/7 at their efforts to destroy it.

I would say a good portion of these women are single, ugly and are also doubling up with free contraception and gay marriage, which of course makes abortion moot.

The pro-abortion “ladies” are an embarrassment to all women. They’re saying that women are no better than the simplest animal writhing in the throes of heat. They’re saying that women have no self respect, no ability to say, “no”, and are unable keep their knees together. They disgust me.

I do believe that the majority of (women) believe and even celebrate the murder of innocents.

One thing that I have never seen is a poll on abortion broken down by sex. Who favors abortion more, men or women? The DemonRats call abortion a womens issue, but I believe that more women then men are pro life. In my own poll that I have taken over the years, I find more women are pro life then men.

I have found two types of men who are pro abortion: The first type favor abortion because they don't want their girlfriend having a baby. The second type of man doesn't really want an abortion, but has been told all his life that it is not his choice to make, so doesn't feel that he has a right to be pro life.

But, we will never know the truth, because polls broken down by sex would probably show more men favor abortion then women, thus taking abortion as a women's issue away from the dems.

I can’t remember where I saw this, but I distinctly remember a polling result hat showed the most stridently pro-choice demographic being college-aged males.

When I flipped on the TV to catch the "news" and saw thousands of people sticking those stupid banners, "We love Mouchelle," bouncing up and down, I just about lost it!

What crap, then looking at Mouchelle grinning and tilting her head as "queen of the universe," I realized that she's just as demented as him.

Not to mention — we are told all the time how “strong” they are. I am woman, hear me roar - until I’m faced with an unplanned pregnancy, and then I run for the nearst cowardly exit and kill my kid because I’m too CHICKENSH*t TO face up to my mistakes, take responsibility for them, and DEMAND that others around me do the same!!!

Abortion begets more abortion, in addition to more abuse of women and children that are living. Nothing better for a man than abortion as it allows him to skip out and smoke the choom instead of staying home and being a father to his kids.

God, how I hate it all.

I’m not sure what the poll is on life issues lately, but to base your campaign on it when so many people are out of work and there is so much debt is just disconnected from reality. To pigeon whole women as only caring about rape and free on demand abortion is insulting. Women want jobs and financial security for themselves and their families too.
