Posted on 06/06/2014 4:46:27 AM PDT by Kaslin
The feminist film critics can exhale now. Someone has finally concocted their dream movie: an "abortion comedy." Because apparently nothing sounds funnier than an unplanned one-night stand and a courageous destruction of God's most beautiful and most innocent creation.
It's called "Obvious Child." Feminist lingo sells this monstrosity. Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Jenny Slate plays Donna Stern, a standup comedian who "is forced to face the uncomfortable realities of independent womanhood for the first time." A "drunken hookup -- and epic lapse in prophylactic judgment -- turns out to be the beginning of a hilarious and totally unplanned journey of self-discovery and empowerment."
Rolling Stone magazine described one scene of allegedly hilarious "empowerment" between female characters. "You're going to kill it," Donna's best friend Nellie says before a standup comedy set the night before her abortion. "Tomorrow I am," Donna replies, and "the two unravel in sheepish giggles."
If America laughs at this, America is beyond redemption.
The New York Times hailed how the film doesn't veer from a righteous feminist path. Donna does not consult the man who impregnated her, even though she likes him, and she "never wavers on her course of action." The cameras accompany her into the Planned Parenthood clinic for the execution.
The filmmakers consulted with Planned Parenthood to make the film "accurate," at least to abortion-loving feminists. They filmed at their abortion mill in New Rochelle, New York.
The director, Gillian Robespierre, announced with pride, "We knew the conflict wasn't going to be 'Will she or won't she?' I've already seen the movie where somebody's torturing themselves over the decision." A moral dilemma? A stay of execution? "That's the formula we were fighting against. We're just so brainwashed to believe that's what a happy ending is."
Feminists have been grumpy for years about movies like "Juno" and "Knocked Up" sending a pro-life message. Slate, the film's star, argued: "a woman who is not ready to have a baby making it work is not a happy ending to me. It's a personal nightmare." She added, "I've had women say to me: 'Thank you. I was feeling guilty for not feeling guilty.'"
In politics, abortion advocates love to fight about the rare exceptions: the rape, the incest, the late diagnosis of Down syndrome or disabilities. But this movie displays the much more typical abortion. It's a clumsy episode of casual sex between strangers, followed by a violent vacuum pump "cleanup" at Planned Parenthood.
The abortion, in fact, is pitched as a moment of maturity, authenticity, bravery and resolve. "Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage," the publicity materials claim. There's not really a death so much, just a moment of personal growth.
Of course, to sell the movie, they oddly claim this abortion-advocating movie doesn't have an agenda. "Our film is not an agenda movie in any way," Slate told Rolling Stone. "The whole point is that women have this procedure, and they should have it safely, and it's a part of life. It doesn't have to be this giant obelisk sticking out." That is not an agenda, no siree.
A little murder is a part of life. A little life matters not at all.
Feminists like these movie-makers don't see a moral dilemma. They see abortion as a natural part of the daily grind. You wake up, you get an abortion, you have a cheeseburger. The critics call this a "refreshing matter-of-factness" about abortion.
It can also be described as feminist nihilism. The selfishness and autonomy of the woman is paramount, and the accidental baby is just cannon fodder. When the murder of the innocents is celebrated as comedy, civil society is destroyed.
“You’re going to kill it,” Donna’s best friend Nellie says before a standup comedy set the night before her abortion. “Tomorrow I am,” Donna replies, and “the two unravel in sheepish giggles.”
Seriously, what can be said? We don’t have words that have been invented to properly cover the hideousness of this level of human depravity.
And I'm sure it will become the next Shawshank Redemption when it makes it to cable.
This is good. Anytime abortion is featured, it goes badly for the pro-aborts. In order for Abortion to be supported, it must be “impersonalized”. “That isn’t a child and the abortion never really happened”.
It operates best in the shadows where it can be considered “women’s health” rather than abortion.
No culture can withstand these assaults. None. Hope that asteroid hits...
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:31
I don’t want to, but in my heart I agree with you. There can be no reconciliation with this evil that has invaded the very soul of our nation.
I just can’t see a way out. I think the culture has to collapse and then attempt to build back over the next 100 or 200 years. If it ever does.
To read this while the D Day commemoration occurs beggars belief!
Sorry to be such a downer.
The success of this hideous venture will be a measure of America’s future. If it fails, even with the unwavering drumbeat the media will give it, then it is a sign that while Hollywood has no morals, at least some of the public still do. So there is still hope for us.
And if it succeeds, it must serve to steel our resolve. A defeat is not the time to quit. If it was, Christ never would have made it to Calvary.
There are two Americas, and the one in the majority is laughing at stuff like this all the time.
The same idiots that freak out if we kill a wolf! I hate half of this country with a passion.
No kidding. When this hits basic cable it will no doubt be chock-full of fundraising ads for PETA.
As much as they would like to turn all women into conscienceless psychopaths, it’s not going to happen to the vast majority. Ultimately, you can’t undo biology. You can’t undo soul. That inner voice in a person, no matter how brainwashed they have become, no matter how faint and muted and gagged that voice is, that will speak up when things are quiet and dark and they are alone. I’m not discounting their power. I certainly get that and it is impressive what they have “achieved”. Millions of abortions later is testament to that, but they will not be the ultimate victors...not against God and nature no matter how many “comedies” they make. .
This will be lauded by abortion propagandists, i.e., the “elite” media, but have no more audience than the rest of the cr@p they praise. “Rolling Stone,” which is treated as a real cultural force, has almost no subscribers. It’s sent free to everyone who buys an event ticket from Ticketmaster.
That idiot Ashley Judd is the poster girl for that upside down way of thinking.
I love wild animals. I love to watch them. But some will kill you if they get a chance. I have never heard of a baby killing anyone. Well accept that crazy case in some third world hell hole where the baby was arrested with a bunch of crazies a month or so back.
We should take ole Ashley up to bear country and tie a fish around her neck. :)
I presume this woman has had an abortion in real life. Her only hope --- and ours --- is that the pain grows, and grows, and grows, until it bursts through her heart of stone. That God replaces her heart of stone with a heart of flesh, and she receives the gift of cleansing tears.
She's human. after all --- though she tries to suppress it. And any human mother --- heck, any mammal with a glimmer of self-awareness --- has a strong instinct of protective tenderness toward her own young.
Miss Marmelstein, ma'am, if that asteroid's coming, I hope it comes right down my chimney. But I have to hold out hope for repentance and mercy. The Living God is just--- but Mercy is His other name.
Well, I hope it doesn’t - you’re too nice to have an asteroid down your chimney! I’m just very depressed over Obama this week. And now this.
**A little murder is a part of life. A little life matters not at all.**
So, even if God creates the life, a little murder doesn’t matter? Insane!
The thing is our nation will pay for it in some way.
I love nature, too. I don’t kill anything...not even a spider, but I do eat meat, and I recognize that some animals have to be killed...for humane reasons. For the good of the species. For mankind’s benefit. My wish would be for all animals to be treated humanely, but you are so right about their twisted views. They don’t just put animals on par with people, they put them above.
I have found myself begging God for forgiveness many an evening before bed as I have grown to harbor a seething hatred in my soul for these same people who are the antithesis of all that is good and righteous.
I am right there with you, FRiend...
Before I get flamed here! I know that flies in the face of pro-life! But I am just sick of these lying, backstabbing, moronic, sniveling, weak kneed, perverted, attention seeking, effeminate, depraved scum sucking lunatics and their deceitful leaders!
America will laugh at least the half of America that is communist.
How often have we seen here on FR, SNL and Jon Stewart, video's that folks think are funny, because on rare occasions they mock their fellow communists.
America will laugh because they are programmed to laugh, funny has little to do with it, the vast majority who watch and laugh at this, really have no idea what they are laughing at.
The half that does not laugh at this, will still seek out excerpts presented here or somewhere else, and will do so, with expected outrage, but they will still watch it, does one really need to see it in full 1080p living color to be outraged, it seems many are programmed that way.
Programing is everything and Communists could care less who sees it, whether it causes agreement or outrage, as long as it is seen.
Cynicism it seems lately; gets the best of me, probably just me getting increasingly pessimistic, I am more often than not, thinking we are doomed.
I'm there with you - thanks for putting it in words.
Yeah, too bad Ashley is one of the better looking Lib psychos. But has evil in her heart and that is what counts.
As ironic as this may sound, it offers some measure of comfort knowing that others share in this sentiment, however difficult it is to bear.
Barack the poser is trying to demoralized us. We have to keep going, even if it's tough. I had to quit listening to my beloved Rush. I was afraid my blood pressure would explode. Now I can't listen because I am at work. My husband fills me in.
Is a comment from me necessary?
They missed a comedy coup here!!!!
Nellie: You're going to kill it.
Nellie: You're going to kill it.
Donna: Tomorrow I am.
(they both unravel in sheepish giggles)
Nellie: Well, KILL IT WITH FIRE.
Donna: Do you think a flamethrower nozzle will fit up there?
Nellie: Why not! Everything else seems to!
Donna: (frowns and hits Nellie playfully on the shoulder) Maybe I should nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Nellie: Are you going to eat the fetus?
Donna: Only the brains. The rest, I will smear all over my body.
(they both dissolve into more giggles)
Nellie: You can use the blood to paint your face up like an indian warrior!
Donna: How! Me want-um scalp of dead fetus!
Well, Jerry Lewis made a “comedy” about the Holocaust.
The Day the Clown Cried was made, but never has been officially released.
Ya, a nine month old killed some people apparently, some muslim hellhole I think it was.
Obviously not true.
I can’t believe this kind of thing is being made into a movie, that’s absolutely crazy. I can’t even begin to imagine what God thinks about all this.
if you see a brown recluse, I hope you kill it. Those bites can be open wounds for months and months and never heal, can require skin grafting or just outright kill. It’s a nasty way to go.
I don’t kill stuff either, and I do eat meat. I do shoot coyotes, wolves, and gophers though, whenever I get the chance.
Most movies from Hollywood are abortions.

Not a comedy, but does anybody remember a book/movie called The Cider House Rules?
Yeah, hard to know which is more hell-bent: abortion as comedy or abortion as compassion. Funny as septicemia and compassionate as a ball of bloodclots.
The baby was later released. Not sure if he’ll face trial. Not a very compelling witness.
It’s already been done.
Citizen Ruth (1996)
Citizen Ruth is a 1996 comedy film written by Jim Taylor and Alexander Payne. The film is the directorial debut of Payne. It stars Laura Dern in the title role of a poor, irresponsible and pregnant woman who unexpectedly attracts attention from those involved in the debate about the morality and legality of abortion.
As of 2014, Citizen Ruth remains to be the only Alexander Payne-directed film not nominated for any Academy Awards.
It already has. 50 million Americans have been systematically murdered. That's even higher than what the Weather Underground figured it would take to effect social revolution in America.
50 million dead Americans. So when 30 million persons come from the southern border with no regard for laws (immigation, privacy, personal identity protections, taxes, voting, etc.), they don't "bloat" the system.
In England the Leftist (lesbian) politicians are saying that open border immigration is the only way to keep the tax coffers filled with the "natives" not replenishing the headcount as older generations die off.
Idiocracy is here.
Too self-centered, too eternally immature to raise the next generation of life in this country.
The history and traditions are fading away because the new people coming here didn't grow up with them and those who are here don't care to pass it along./I
Didn’t a foreign “comedy” about the Holocaust win an Oscar awhile back?
I unplugged from television in 2008. The ads (political, biased news breaks, movie ads, tv ads, etc.) even for things I was “not watching” became too pervasive. It would still hit the subconscious even if it was met with up front “rejection”.
I still watch movies and even a rare tv show, but on my terms, on DVD.
I don’t let the crass liberal corporate culture push the liberal agenda on me at every turn.
Another poster mentioned the “free Rolling Stone” issues for buying a ticket, Best Buy used to try that same sort of thing (free 6 issue magazine subscriptions for making a purchase). Free isn’t always free. It’s hyped nonsense owned by the parent company. It isn’t impartial journalism.
Why gophers, particularly?
because they hurt and kill horses and cattle, and otherwise ruin the land.
They reproduce like mad, and eat their own, and they make good marksmanship practice.
The livestock steps in the holes and legs and ankles etc are broken.
The liberal modern women here like “Sex in the City”
Bimbos picking losers to hook up with then meeting over coffee or wine to bitch about them.
Okay, thanks. I just wondered.
Life is Beautiful
