In his WSJ column regarding being labeled a racist by JournoList:
What was particularly pathetic about the scheme to smear Mr. Obama’s critics was labeling them as racists. The accusation has been made so frequently in recent years, without evidence to back it up, that it has little effect. It’s now the last refuge of liberal scoundrels.
Even after TheOne signed an executive order that no taxpayer money would fund abortion in the US (and at this point we all know that was an act), he is providing $23million in taxpayer money to Kenya to promote a new constitution there that would legalize abortion.
One group that has received almost $3 million from the U.S. government, Development Alternatives, openly supported “advocating for efforts to eventually legalize abortion in Kenya,” [Rep. Chris] Smith said. Another group, The Committee of Experts on Constitutional Review in Kenya, changed the wording of the Kenyan constitution’s abortion clause to make abortion more widely accessible – and has received over $180,000 from the U.S.
But not only that, there is evidence that American entities (Planned Parenthood) are writing portions of the Kenyan constitution.
The federal probe also found that the Kenyan constitution was not actually written by Kenyans, but by “U.S.-funded NGOs, working in concert with Planned Parenthood,” Smith [of NJ] said.
But some Kenyans think that the role of American organizations like Planned Parenthood in drafting the Kenyan constitution compromises Kenyan sovereignty and assaults its cultural heritage.
And they are right. It does violate their sovereignty and that is precisely why we have laws to prevent us from doing this in other nations. It’s not our business to be writing constitutions in other nations. There is no question that our Constitution has been a model for nations worldwide, but to go in and actually write segments of it for other nations is -mmm- imperialism? Nation building without the bullets? Everything the doves in the left accuses the right of doing.
Theresa Okafor, CEO of Kenya’s Life League, said in a speech that the proposed constitution is “a conspiracy to strip Africa of its cherished values by international organizations like Planned Parenthood and the United Nations.”
“Africans regard every child as a blessing,” Okafor said. “Amidst biting poverty, the birth of a child is celebrated with pomp and pageantry. Children are treasures in Africa.”
Children should be treasures wherever they are born. Unfortunately, PP does not share that same view. And to my mind, what they are doing in Kenya is nothing short of a continued and creeping practice of genocide that started in America by Margaret Sanger.
Because abortion has never been an issue in Kenya until now, the country lacks an organized anti-abortion movement on the scale seen in the United States. But a number of church groups are mobilizing against the proposed constitution, as are some Kenyans who want to preserve the traditional culture of family values.
“You know, at the risk of violating Godwin’s law, is anyone starting to see parallels here between the teabaggers and their tactics and the rise of the Brownshirts?” asked Bloomberg’s Ryan Donmoyer. “Esp. Now that it’s getting violent? Reminds me of the Beer Hall fracases of the 1920s.”
The Brownshirts were the SA, armed thugs organized into a paramilitary structure by the Nazis (who later were deemed expendable, with most of their leadership murdered by the SS after the Nazis took power). The term “Brownshirts” came from the uniform they wore in public. They conducted massive levels of violence against their political opponents, especially the Communists, but hardly limited to them. They took their direction from the very hierarchical Nazi Party leadership. In short, they’re nothing like anything on the American scene on either side of the political divide, not even the anarchists who conducted real violence in St. Paul during the Republican convention. Donmoyer’s education on this period seems to have been gleaned from comic books and paranoid fantasies in progressive blogs.
[Spencer Ackerman on Journolist said] “What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.”
Who are the brownshirts again? Who are the fascists and the Nazis?
You know, it’s time that we stop thinking these guys are so much smarter than we are. They obviously are not. These guys don’t even have a grasp of 20th century history.
They sure aren’t smarter and they are definitely more inclined to violent thinking. And remember, these are the guys who have been providing us with news and information – as incorrect and stilted as it has been. The problem is that those of us who knew better than to rely on them to become informed are a minority. And those who still get their information from them, don’t even know about all that the Daily Caller has uncovered. I”m sure (although I could be wrong because I never watch it) that MSNBC has done nothing on this for its viewers. After all, Spencer Ackerman is a regular on Rachel Maddow’s show (according to Ann Coulter.)
I think the table’s have turned now and the so-called media smart guys are going to be living “in a constant state of fear” because their are enough of us who have been informed and thanks to the new media, they are being watched.
As an aside: please click on Godwin’s law and read what it means, in case you don’t know.
