Hard-hitting MSNBC interview with Wendy Davis: Exactly how awesome was your abortion filibuster?

posted at 4:41 pm on June 27, 2013 by Allahpundit

Bookmark this so that you have it at hand the next time someone complains about ridiculous softball interviews of political allies on Fox News. Someone in my Twitter timeline last night said it was the political equivalent of Chris Farley’s SNL “interview” with Paul McCartney. Bingo. The closest Hayes gets to a question that’s even a little bit challenging is when he asks her to respond to Perry saying that the hooting mob lacked decorum, which is really just a set-up for her to run through talking points about “the people’s filibuster.” Contrary to rumor, though, he does utter the word “abortion” at least once at the beginning before he and Davis start wandering away from it. As Orwellian as the left’s handling of this subject is, it’s not quite that Orwellian. Yet.

I hope you’ll be as excited as I am to learn that the grassroots effort to draft abortion warrior Wendy Davis for governor of America’s most famously red state is in full swing.

On June 25, Texas state Senator Wendy Davis stood for 13 hours to filibuster against Texas Republicans’ War on Women. She did us proud, and it’s time that we made her governor of Texas.

Current Republican Gov. Rick Perry may run for an unprecedented fourth term. A hypothetical poll in January had Sen. Davis trailing Gov. Perry by only six points––despite the fact that she had virtually no name recognition at the time.

With changing demographics shaking up the Texas electorate, and Republicans continuously alienating millions of voters, Texas is ready to turn blue.

What word is missing there? Nationally, 50 percent of women support a ban on abortion after 20 weeks like the one Texas is trying to pass versus 44 percent who don’t. (Philip Klein slyly notes that this makes the ban more popular with women than ObamaCare is.) In Texas, 62 percent of all voters support it. And yet here’s the left angling to turn the next gubernatorial election into a referendum on the subject, no doubt powered by the same huge sums and organizational effort that worked so well for big labor in trying to recall Scott Walker. Having lefty grassroots donors divert millions from winnable Senate races to Davis’s lost cause would be a boost to GOP efforts next year to retake the upper chamber. I encourage you to sign every dumb Democratic “draft Wendy!” petition you stumble across.

Note, incidentally, that the recurring MSNBC chyron for this fair-and-balanced segment is “#standwithwendy.” Exit quotation:

We should only be so lucky if she were the Dem nominee for Texas Governor. At least that Castro dude from Crap Antonio would have a prayer of being competitive. Davis would get trounced in a landslide. A candidate whose claim to fame is a 10-hour filibuster in support of late term abortion and no oversight for abortion clinics in the wake of the Gosnell butchery? In a state as red as Texas no less? Maybe the GOP ain’t the stupid(est) party after all.

Doughboy on June 27, 2013 at 4:49 PM

My water broke at 23 weeks with my oldest son. Supposedly that situation “needs” abortion. He’s now 8 years old.

I don’t care what somebody’s opinion of abortion is.. destroying a healthy 20-week fetus is monstrous. Who in their right mind would want to PRESERVE the kind of conditions that allowed Kermit Gosnell’s charnal house to exist?

The woman is a monster… in pink sneakers.

Murf76 on June 27, 2013 at 4:55 PM

According to the left, Rick Perry launched a despicable attack on Wendy Davis.

What terrible things did he say?

“Who are we to say that children born in the worst of circumstances can’t grow to live successful lives? In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate,” Perry said Thursday in a speech to the National Right to Life Convention. “It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”

David French writing in National Review makes the point:

The Left grabs the smelling salts not because Governor Perry’s words are outrageous but because they hit upon a moral truth the abortion industry is desperate to deny: No person should judge the worth or potential of another person’s life — especially when that judgment can have fatal consequences.

Drained Brain on June 27, 2013 at 4:56 PM

She could “abort” that useless lump on her left cheek. Better yet, just “abort” the useless lump on her shoulders.

Deano1952 on June 27, 2013 at 4:56 PM

I’d hit it.

Using a condom, of course, so no innocent bystanders would be harmed in the process.

UltimateBob on June 27, 2013 at 4:57 PM

In the state that sent Ted Cruz to the Senate, I doubt that Gov. Perry is quaking in his cowboy boots.

He probably sees Wendy Davis as a Wowie Howie scream in Iowa.

Bring. It. On!

Steve Z on June 27, 2013 at 4:57 PM

Her “stand” is the clearest evidence yet that we are just broken. As hideous as it is to block a bill that is meant to protect both late term babies and women from another Gosnell, worse yet has been how that has been cheered on. Makes my stomach churn just thinking about it.

changer1701 on June 27, 2013 at 4:58 PM

My concern is why is Perry so low in the polls? This is supposed to be a red state.

Rose on June 27, 2013 at 4:58 PM

Speaker at the DNC, 2016

Schadenfreude on June 27, 2013 at 4:58 PM

She began working after school at age 14 to help support her single mother and three siblings, according to her campaign website. “By 19, Wendy was a single mother herself, working two jobs to make ends meet in hopes of creating a better life for her young daughter.”
She pursued community college, then transferred to Texas Christian University. With the help of scholarships and loans, she graduated first in her class. She went on to graduate with honors from Harvard Law at the age of 33.

First in her class then onto Harvard Law. She sounds like Ted Cruz. That’s who should be going up against her. Ted Cruz is 20-30 IQ points above Rick Perry. Rick Perry needs to be kept away from microphones.

Is he even planning to seek another term? Besides, he seems to do that. His poll numbers dip until he actually runs for Governor and then they tick back up. Plus his favorability rating’s probably still suffering a little from the failed primary campaign for President.

You would think someone who had to work at 14 to help her single mother would be a little more careful about being a single mother herself. I’m glad she didn’t kill her child, but couldn’t she have been a little more careful?

I thought the left believed the filibuster was a obstacle in the way of democracy, of the people, and needed to be stopped?

What happened?

Hey, good for her for using it. That’s a critical weapon to use and I fully support it.

But the mob action? Gimme a break. If the Tea Party had done that we’d have front page stories about Beer Hall Putschs and Nazi rallies.

SteveMG on June 27, 2013 at 5:07 PM

Davis is a twit…

There I said it.

Davis’ response to Perry’s speech at The Right to Life event was to say

Gov. Perry sadly doesn’t represent Texas values.

62% of Texans are in favor of this bill…many of them doctors.

Perry represents Texas values more than Davis.

People need to revive the old practice of swinging jelly jars with real dead human fetuses in the faces of abortion lovers

This was considered disgusting. Drudge was terminated at FOX (aborted?) for his intention of showing a mere picture of a fetus on his show

However, pro abortion ghouls have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that fetuses are not human. They are redundant carbon waste by product.

The Red Wing hockey team used to have a tradition of throwing octopuses on the ice, when the Wings were on a roll

The little trophies of abortion should be offered up

When American soldiers found the death camps in WWII, local Germans were made to walk through the camps, and see the bodies, the debris, the ovens.

In a fair debate, the full evidence must be presented, not a lyrical narrative by a twit extolling death of a child by surgical instruments

If Perry doesn’t run for governor again it will most certainly be Atty. Gen. Greg Abbott and either of them would kick any liberals ass…Liberals suck on economic policy and that’s what Texans will be focused on.

Davis will be lucky to win reelection to TX Sen. District 10, that is if she runs for reelection.

No doubt she can raise lots of leftwing $$ from Emily’s List, NARAL, and various bra-burning 1-percenters, but a candidate who’s entire identity is built around late-term abortion is a flaming wreck waiting to happen.

Even Ann Richards, who often brandished her feminism like a billy club, stressed her identity as a mother and protector of children, rather than a destroyer of them.

I don’t doubt that Davis will kick a$$ in Travis, Harris, Dallas, and Bexar Counties. I also don’t doubt that she would struggle to achieve 40% of the vote — unless the GOP renominates Clayton Williams.

Why a Liberal like Davis won’t be elected Governor of Texas…Data at the link.

“The BEA revised California’s real GDP growth downward from 2009 to 2011 in each of three years by a cumulative 2.6 percent, the third-largest negative revision in the nation.

In other words, California’s economy shrank an additional 2.6 percent before it grew 3.5 percent.

So, in the past five years California’s real GDP contracted 0.3 percent, one of ten states where economic activity was less in 2012 than it was in 2008.

By contrast, the BEA revised Texas’ growth upward by 0.5 percent from 2009 to 2011.

Texas’ newly revised real GDP growth from 2009 to 2012 was 13 percent.

From 2009 to 2012, California’s share of the U.S. economy shrank from 13.1 percent to 12.9 percent while Texas’ portion of the American economy increased from 8.2 percent to 9 percent…

The BEA now estimates that California’s 2010 output grew at an anemic 0.3 percent, down from the previously estimated 1.7 percent.

The overall U.S. economy grew at a revised 2.4 percent that year, eight times California’s pace.

Texas’ economy expanded 4.1 percent, 71% more rapidly than the national economy…”

We just have Perry fatigue here. He’s been governor for 13 years, and many want to see a change just for the sake of change. That being said, he’d win by double digits if he ran against this woman. And if it was Greg Abbott against her, it would probably be a 15-20% margin.

Frankly I fail to see what purpose any libtard serves except to steal and screw over the rest of us. Besides I only said what many others around here are thinking but won’t say.

Do you really think acting like a spineless p***y is going to scare libtards or stop them from screwing the rest of us over? Really? They would kill their own mothers to get what they want and those of you on the right should get it through your thick skulls that is what you are up against. Stop treating cockroaches like they are humans and treat them like the insects they are.

Oh yeah. it’s deep dark red, and will be for awhile. I agree with the other s here, that Perry’s more popular than the polls always show. In Texas we usually don’t keep governors very long, and he’s the longest serving one, which speaks well for him, but it’s also true that some folks just want a change. And my goodness, there’s all kinds of sharp elbows being thrown among the other Repubs who want to move up in statewide office. It’s kind of funny to watch. They’re really restless. The Dems don’t even figure into it because they can’t win statewide office.

Demographics could make for a change in the future, though, especially as so many blue staters are coming here for jobs, plus the possible amnesty. We need people like you to balance out the liberal ones.

Pigs will be pigs, as we saw in WI, as well as during the OWS protests…

Tea Party folks leaving a place cleaner than how they found it is just their way to try putting a union man out of work. /

if the gop can field a competent candidate then please go away Rick Perry.

Hard-hitting MSNBC interview with Wendy Davis: Exactly how awesome was your abortion filibuster?

“That was an amazing moment.”

Yes, going to such effort to protect the killing of babies is an “amazing” thing to all of us.

One of our resident FB libs is all frothed up over Perry’s ‘abominable’ diss of Davis, while having the unmitigated gall to have executed TX’s 500th criminal yesterday.
He’s a newspaper journalist, so not worth any effort to confront.

As I said in a headline thread, “this is why Dems have the upper hand. The GOP and its toadies in the population would have thrown her under the bus already if she had been a conservative woman doing something similarly consistent with her ideology.”

Sometime’s it’s fun to say something you want to say in response to something it has no relation to. Or is that just me?

Let’s give it a whirl.

Also, I’m not white.

Well somebody has to be. If not you then who? If not now, then when?

I was surprised at how quietly we were able to off a black female prisoner. Of course everyone that knew about her case was ready to pounce but it was mighty peaceful wasn’t it? And in her last statement when she declared death was a win I was happy for her.

Capitalist Hog on June 27, 2013 at 6:37 PM

give it a rest already, most of us saw the inclusion as her declaration of her cvil rights to kill a baby at any stage of her pregnancy…women’s right to choose and all that. You always look this hard to be offended?

DanMan on June 27, 2013 at 6:43 PM

One thing is for sure,she will be sitting next to Mooch at the next SOTU in January or keynote speaker at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.The Left has already elevated her to Sainthood.

Agree, to a point.
Jan’s a long way off, and they’ll likely have some illegal success stories up there by then. ;-)

Laura’s tweet poses a good question but a better question might be “Which mothers that you see on the playground shouldn’t be there because they contracted a deadly infection at their filthy abortion clinic?”

KS Rex on June 27, 2013 at 7:00 PM

Just another baby killin democrat….what a toad…..she will atone some day for her actions to a High Court…….

What word is missing there? Nationally, 50 percent of women support a ban on abortion after 20 weeks like the one Texas is trying to pass versus 44 percent who don’t. (Philip Klein slyly notes that this makes the ban more popular with women than ObamaCare is.) In Texas, 62 percent of all voters support it. And yet here’s the left angling to turn the next gubernatorial election into a referendum on the subject, no doubt powered by the same huge sums and organizational effort that worked so well for big labor in trying to recall Scott Walker. Having lefty grassroots donors divert millions from winnable Senate races to Davis’s lost cause would be a boost to GOP efforts next year to retake the upper chamber. I encourage you to sign every dumb Democratic “draft Wendy!” petition you stumble across.

Shhh! Don’t interrupt the calls for the petite, pink-sneakered girl to run.

Putting that much effort into making sure that the blood and viscera of innocent children continues to flow from the birth canals of whores. Despicable.

CrustyB on June 28, 2013 at 9:47 AM

It’s stands to reason that MSNBC would seek out another loud mouth, obnoxious liberal to glorify.

What about the threads that castigate gays and blacks in the ugliest of terms?

Capitalist Hog on June 19, 2013 at 3:12 PM

Oh, THAT’S what you were talking about. I thought you were calling US racists and bigots. You were merely referring to yourself.

I stand corrected.
