What’s Worse – Kicking a Cat or Killing a Baby?
Front Page Mag ^ | May 7, 2014 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 05/09/2014 10:48:49 AM PDT by xzins

I’ll let both of these “viral” video stories speak for themselves.

A 21-year-old sociopath-in-training was arrested yesterday for kicking a kitten. And the police caught up with him because the video—which shows Andre Robinson grinning like a tough guy (and his friends laughing hysterically)—was posted on Facebook.

Cops said the man was in police custody and was being questioned about the attack. It was not known how badly the cat was hurt.

The video shows Robinson kicking the cat very hard; “According to the arrest report, the cat flew about 20 feet — and a veterinarian confirmed to cops the brutal blow likely caused serious injury,”

The horrifying footage went viral, and it’s a good thing so many people were able to resist the urge to do the mental equivalent of running from the room screaming. After studying the video, commenters determined that it was shot near Brevoort Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant and contacted local police.

Here’s a more “positive” viral video story.

Emily Letts, an abortion counselor in New Jersey, said she wasn’t ready to have a baby, even though she was pregnant, and decided that the best solution for her would be to have an abortion — and film it.

“I found out I am pregnant,” the 25-year-old said in the video she uploaded onto YouTube. “I’m not ready to have children.”

So why the video of the procedure?

“[I want to] show women that there is such thing as a positive abortion story,” The Blaze reported.

Her conclusion at the end of the video: “I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew what I was going to do was right, because it was right for me and no one else. I just want to tell my story.”

Americans, a century ago, would have rightly understood that Emily Letts, despite being more telegenic, was a worse monster than Andre Robinson.

But that was a sane society. Its moral outrage was reserved for things that were actually immoral. It put human life ahead of animal life.

Sometimes that society seems as dead as ancient Rome.

Today we burn dead babies for energy and send out rescue teams to find a kicked cat. In 1914, they would have sent out rescue teams for a baby and ignored the cat.

They were horrible people, obviously. And our society is progressive and moral. Arguably the most moral society ever. It has a bright future.

APPMA’s 2005-2006 National Pet Owners Survey (NPOS) show pet ownership is currently at its highest level, with 63 percent of all U.S. households owning a pet which equates to more than 69 million households. That’s up from 64 million in 2002 and 51 million in 1988 when APPMA’s tracking began.

Since 1970, the portion of U.S. households that include families with two married parents and children fell by half, from 40 percent to 20 percent last year.

There are more households that own cats than have children. I like cats, but unless we start valuing human life again, our civilization is going to die alone. And the civilization that replaces it will spend a lot of time kicking cats.

We are always left wondering what is wrong with America today? What is wrong with culture today?

Some sense of proportion is missing. Some notion of right and wrong has become terribly scrambled.

One thing that's wrong is my paying anything to support the killing of babies.

I did find out that the cat was alright in the end. No serious harm was done that could be detected.

I don’t like cat kickers or baby killers, but baby killing is far worse. I’d like to kick both of them morons.

USNVet,

Exactly. Both are wrong. We know that.

But in this culture killing the baby was a hit. The lady is lauded, toasted, acclaimed.

The nation is sick.

One of the most asinine, selfish, and callous statements I've ever read.

That's amazing. I would not be surprised if some complications arose later on.

There are many other centuries in which that woman would be in prison and the doctors conspiring with her.

The lady is beyond depravity. She is demonic.

The video of the cat kicking was revolting. Soon we will have the human abortion equivalent by way of the crowd funded Gosnell Movie

Same deal with the uproar over the “botched” execution in Oklahoma. We ought to start executing folks by withholding all anesthesia, punching a hole in their heads, and sucking their brains out. When they scream, we can tell them that when they stop doing innocent babies that way, we will consider being nicer in the way we kill convicted murderers...

Both are bad. Evil is evil. Comparisons just attempt to cloud the issue and start controversy.

No. Killing a baby is worse than kicking a cat.

Both are bad.

One is much worse.

Mistreating animals is bad.

Killing babies is worse.

Mistreating animals will get you arrested.

Killing your baby will get you on the cover of Cosmo.

Sadly, you are correct. All Bible prophecy.

If abortion were shown in the same graphic way that the kitten being kicked was shown, the number of abortion proponents would decline in an instant.

The reason abortion is so tolerable to our "civilized" society is because it's done without cameras to record the disgusting violence perpetrated on the innocent life. It's troubling enough to see a picture of a dismembered or burned baby. Imagine if a camera were able to capture that violence.

But few would watch it because few really want to know the truth about what happens to that baby. For the most part, those people are known as "low information voters," although there are some who are so calloused that they don't even care about what the baby experiences.

What the bloody hell have we become?

Thanks for posting that. I couldn’t watch the video, so I’m relieved to learn that the cat was ok. I hope someone took it in and gave it a good home.

Today we burn dead babies for energy and send out rescue teams to find a kicked cat.

"We burn dead babies for energy" is the same kind of misstatement (OK, lie) the left uses when they say our calls for reduced regulations mean we "want dirty air and water". It may sound picky, but we should be setting ourselves apart from them, to maintain credibility.

Burning aborted babies for electricity? Happening right here in the USA, American Thinker

The above is a Free Republic thread about babies being burned in Oregon power plant(s).

The power plants are being used as incinerators, for all kinds of medical (and other) waste. (No, I don't consider babies' corpses medical waste, but "they" do.) The purpose is disposal, not energy production. Just like our calls for reduction of onerous regulations is to strengthen our economy and our nation in general, not to "dirty the air and water".

The point is, we should not become "them". The truth can stand alone, without the hyperbole.

It really depends on whether the burning takes place in a furnace that does or does not provide heat to power a generator.

If it does not, then it is pure incineration.

If it does, then it also is helping provide energy, even if their primary intent was disposal.
