Quotes of the day

posted at 8:41 pm on April 12, 2013 by Allahpundit

“If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” said Rep. Smith…

“Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end?” Rep. Smith continued. “Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how — and how often — abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies?”

***

Martin Baron, executive editor of the Post, tells the Erik Wemple Blog:

We believe the story is deserving of coverage by our own staff, and we intend to send a reporter for the resumption of the trial next week. In retrospect, we should have sent a reporter sooner.

***

So the question, raised by pro-lifers, is this: Explain to us why Gosnell isn’t a national story. Somebody else can try. I can’t explain it. It’s never made sense to me, how a local crime story becomes a national story. Two words: “Poop cruise.” CNN ran hours of coverage and grainy video of a stranded Carnival cruise ship, a situation that inconvenienced many and killed none. How does a missing college student or an angry man in a TSA line become part of Our National Conversation? I don’t know. I do know that a reporter in the bubble is less likely to be compelled by the news of an arrested abortionist…

[T]here is a political scandal here. Grand jury investigators were baffled: How did Gosnell’s clinic, an infamous place in the tri-state area, go un-inspected for so long? Basically, the regulators blew it. “Even though the first DOH Certificate of Approval for Gosnell’s clinic expired on December 20, 1980,” write the investigators, “the next documented site review was not conducted until August 1989.” After a 1992 visit, regulators reported that the clinic was wheelchair-accessible, even though it’s “multi-leveled and has no elevator.” After 1993, the state didn’t follow up complaints about the clinic.

If you’re pro-choice, say, and you worry that the Gosnell story is being promoted only to weaken your cause, you really should read that grand jury report. “DOH could and should have closed down Gosnell’s clinic years before,” write the investigators. Why wasn’t it? Were state regulators nervous about igniting a political fight about abortion? Is the regulatory system incompetent or under-funded? And are there other states where the same could be said? Social conservatives are largely right about the Gosnell story. Maybe it’s not a raw political story. It’s just the story of a potential mass murderer who operated for decades as government regulators did nothing.

***

But the media have a long history of ignoring misconduct within the abortion industry. For instance, in July 2011, Americans United for Life released an exposé on Planned Parenthood. It provided 180 pages of evidence that Planned Parenthood violated parental-involvement laws, failed to report sexual abuse of children, and cannot account for millions in government grants. Despite a Capitol Hill press conference, it received coverage from only a handful of mainstream-media outlets. The fact that Planned Parenthood did not even post their response to the report on their website is evidence that they were confident that the mainstream media would cover for them…

Pro-lifers have gotten used to the fact that mainstream-media outlets are not going to report our perspective on polls, trends, and studies. However, some of us hoped that the Gosnell trial would be different than other stories involving abortion. After all, it provides plenty of graphic evidence of both real human suffering and gross misconduct. We hoped that the testimony might convince some in the media that abortion clinics need more regulation. Unfortunately, all pro-lifers have received is yet another example of the media’s circling the wagons for their allies in the abortion industry.

***

But, as I tried to argue last night on Special Report, I think the mainstream media stayed away from this story as much as it did because it had already locked into the position that partial-birth abortion is a right-wing bogeyman. If they covered the outrages that the feminists are understandably furious about, they would also have to mention somewhere in the reporting the fact that a whole bunch of actual babies were being cut up. The feminists don’t think that’s a problem. They just just want to make sure it’s done under more equitable and sanitary conditions. But the mainstream media understands that it is a problem — for them.

***

There’s very little difference between what [Dr. Leroy] Carhart does on a regular basis and what Kermit Gosnell stands on trial for. In one federal trial on the federal partial-birth-abortion ban, one abortionist testified (under a court-imposed cloak of anonymity) that his regular practice in late-term abortions was to decapitate a partially born child. So the horrors of what Jonah rightly called Gosnell’s “abattoir” should come as no surprise to those who have been paying attention…

Yet the Constitution is said by abortion apologists to protect this butchery. And while the pro-abortion industry appears embarrassed by the Gosnell trial, they’ve held Carhart up as their hero. Carhart was awarded the 2009 William K. Rashbaum, MD, Abortion Provider Award by Physicians for Reproductive Health — because there’s nothing like dying on the table to advance a woman’s health. Oh, and NARAL Pro-Choice America (which no longer stands for National Abortion Rights Action League, given that some people might think that name icky) gave him its Hero Award in the same year.

***

Jezebel points out the obvious, writing that “Gosnell doesn’t represent or stand for abortion care in any way. Abortion, done right, is a safe medical procedure.” But this idea of a high-profile case drawing an emotional response, and the attempt to use that emotional response to drive a policy debate, ought to be familiar. Jezebel’s statement, after all, could just as easily have read: “But Adam Lanza doesn’t represent or stand for gun ownership in any way. Gun ownership, done right, is a safe practice.” Jezebel notes that “fewer than 0.3% of abortion patients ever experience a complication that requires hospitalization,” according to a pro-abortion rights group. But even according to anti-gun statistics, there were only 33,000 gun-related deaths in 2011 for 300,000,000 guns owned in the country (fewer than .00012 percent). The violent crime rate in the U.S., in fact, is approaching a historical low.

***

Said the President after Sandy Hook:

“No law or set of laws can keep our children completely safe. But if there’s even one thing we can do, if there’s just one life we can save, we’ve got an obligation to try.”

I agree. We need sensible abortion control. Think of how many classrooms of children lost their lives at the hands of Gosnell. The difference between Gosnell and some other abortionists is that Gosnell was caught. Gosnell didn’t use an AR-15 to snuff out the lives of these live infants. He assaulted them with scissors. Too many to count. There is a photo of one child (via the grand jury testimony) stuffed into a shoebox like a pet hamster. His little legs were too big so they hung out over the sides. Just one life.

Gosnell is to Obama, what Abu Ghraib was to Bush.

Neither President condone the actions, but the directly supported the policies leading to these events.

Obama had as much knowledge as to what Gosnell was doing, as W did about events in Ghraib. But W ended up owning Ghraib.

Mid-tier bureaucrats in both cases tried to coverup what was going on.

Eventually, the images defeat any coverup.

And the first images out this week, of feet in jars and broken-neck babies with a full heads of hair, cannot be denied.

Ah yes it would have been.

But since this is an issue dear to the hearts of leftists it cannot and will not get the coverage it deserves…

The nation might be exposed to an unspeakable horror!

They would be uncovered and undone in their total support of killing the unborn and the born…

the truth is that the left/media is soaked in epistemic closure. Tweets from both Luke Russert and Dave Weigel tell the tale. Yesterday they both said they were shocked by Gosnell…and that they had this was the first time they were aware of the trial

Eric Rudolph became a focal point of those defending the abortion mills. Where are these same people when we come to understand what happens in these places? Why are they not defending Gosnell with the same zeal they attacked Eric Rudolph? Is blowing up a couple of the abortion mills any more reprehensible or illegal than what Gosnell did?

AP,
Somebody is going to come knocking for old Gosnell, but trust me when I say that he won’t like who he sees when he answers the door. Thinking a bony hand and a scythe may a bit much for the old doc to handle, and once the ferryman brings him across, well Mr Split Tongued himself will want to welcome him personally. He never likes to be upstaged.

But abortion is not illegal or inaccessible. Yet in Gosnell we have something far more horrific than anything described in the mythical “back alley abortion.” Gosnell was operating this place for 17 years without any sort of qualm by the PA Dept. of Health. Hard to see how a back alley abortion would be worse than a guy who lets his victims squeal like aliens before killing them.

INC on April 12, 2013 at 9:15 PM

The interesting thing is that the lack of media attention to this case encourages other illegal abortionists to feel safe and encouraged to continue their illegal acts. The overwhelming media attention to Adam Lanza and his crimes help motivate other insane people who seek attention and recognition to try to duplicate his crimes, as Adam Lanza did of those before him.

In both cases, the media, far from having the the public’s safety at heart, are objectively acting to increase the risk to the lives of Americans and to encourage violent and deadly behavior. Do they hate America? Or do they just not care about anything except their agenda?

Eric Rudolph is a murderer. so is Kermit Gosnell. So was George Tiller

annoyinglittletwerp on April 12, 2013 at 9:13 PM

True. But with a distinction. Eric Rudolph became the face of anti-abortion radicals for blowing up a few abortion mills and Centenial Park and unfortunately killing a couple of people in the process. Laws about distance protesters can stand from the abortion mills were put on the books because of Rudolph. He is serving a life sentence for his crime. The media spent hour upon hour on this story.

George Tiller, a late term abortionist, was killed by Scott Roeder and immediately became a martyr within the abortion movement. The press spent countless hours lauding Tiller and condemning the pro-life movement as if Roeder was its spokesperson.

Kermitt Gosnell has spent a career sadistically killing babies. The press does not condemn or even report on the trial.

‘Smaht’ people got no reason
To live

They got empty minds
Beady eyes
They walk around
Tellin’ great big lies
They got upturned noses
And think they’re elite
They embargo the news
Because it would lead to defeat

Well, I don’t want no ‘smaht’ people
Don’t want no ‘smaht’ people
Don’t want no ‘smaht’ people

New York school district apologizes for ‘Jews are evil’ assignment
Published April 12, 2013
*************************

An upstate New York school district apologized Friday for a high school writing assignment that asked students to “argue Jews are evil” while making a persuasive argument blaming them for the problems of Nazi Germany.

Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard said administrators were discussing what official action the unidentified 10th-grade teacher at Albany High School will face for the assignment given to students on Monday.

According to The Epoch Times, the teacher has been removed from the class.

George Tiller was made an ELDER in his ELCA Church because-if you’re a Christian-Jesus like so approves of infanticed.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 12, 2013 at 9:34 PM

You know how to push my buttons this evening ALT. Tiller was lauded for being an usher and “good” Christian despite the fact he was willing to kill off children.

I left a mainline Protestant church when I was asked to pray for the passage of Obamacare. So I really don’t have much regard for Tiller’s faith where he claims to be part of the body of Christ on a Sunday and kills a child on Monday.

“If Dr. Gosnell had walked into a nursery and shot seven infants with an AR-15, it would be national news and the subject of presidential hand-wringing,” said Rep. Smith…

“Will the decades-long major national news media cover-up of the brutality—and violence—of abortion methods ever end?” Rep. Smith continued. “Will Americans ever be told the horrifying details as to how — and how often — abortionists dismember, decapitate, and chemically poison innocent babies?”

Man, now THAT’S the money quote.

He never asked for nor has he received permission to address me by my first name. That is for my friends here to do.

You reminded me of this:

Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians:

5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.
5:7 Therefore don’t be partakers with them.
5:8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light,
5:9 for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,
5:10 proving what is well pleasing to the Lord.
5:11 Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them.
5:12 For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
5:13 But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that reveals is light.
5:14 Therefore he says, “Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

These verses are what led me to leave Organized Religion, far too many Clergy are preachin’ n teachin’ their own thing, and I left in disgust…

Scrumpy on April 12, 2013 at 9:54 PM

It is somthing that they believe ‘others‘ should do and not themselves…

Scrumpy on April 12, 2013 at 9:39 PM

That is certainly part of it. And it certainly is the result.

But I don’t think your response is the whole answer to the question

What about liberalism isn’t the ultimate expression of selfishness cloaked in the idea of universal altruism?

I’ve met plenty of liberals who clearly don’t understand they are being selfish. They don’t see that they are not doing the same they advocate others should do. It’s how you get the rat-eared devil in the White House talking about austerity in government spending while his brats go on a two week bender (at govt. expense) to an exclusive resort in the Bahamas followed by a ski trip in Idaho. All the while the public is denied tours of the Executive Mansion and the Blue Angels will not be able to do flyover at the Naval Academy graduation ceremonies. These things are clearly less important than pleasuring a couple of worthless girls who have no value to society in the least.

I have had no contact with him outside of HA save for one exchange in the comments section of my blog.

I was just telling him that the only people on HA that I let call me by my name are my friends. I don’t want liveenslavedthendie or DaVerb to get the wrong idea.

I mean, the very least he could do would be to ask first, which is what people like MarshFox, who is my friend, have done.

Me and the Mister were wed in an RCA(Reformed Church in America)church. We left after the board of elders started looking for a new associate pastor…and were ONLY going to look @ minority candidates in the name of ‘diversity’.
Since i returned to Judaism in Feb, I’ve no place to pray.
truthfully, I’m at heart a center-right reformed Jew who dresses modestly-unfortunately reformed Judaism supports most of what I’m against.

I would suggest that it depends on the denomination but,yes, there are many churches who have turned their backs on scripture entirely to embrace popular culture.
