Tell me liberals: Are women who agree with the Catholic church and support the First Amendment brainwashed?
Or do they just hate women too? That’s your entire premise in all of your arguments … the GOP hates women. So, does Mona Charen and all of the other women who have stepped up to speak about this First Amendment issue brainwashed?
Let me make this completely clear. Nobody is trying to take your health care away from you. Nobody is suggesting we restrict your “right” to access contraception of any kind. Nobody is suggesting an employer must have the right to get between you and your doctor. (Except of course for Democrats and President Obama, who are in the process of building an infrastructure to put a big-government bureaucracy between you and your doctor as we speak … but you’re OK with that.)
We’re saying you do not have the right to make us pay for it.
Argue against this statement in the comments: True rights exist simultaneously between people, and exercising those rights can not diminish the rights of another. What is it that causes liberals to ignore that sentence?
On to Mona Charen’s column today in National Review Online.
Democrats are geniuses at muddying the waters and twisting the debate in a direction they find congenial. They’ve been at this a very long time. Recall that in the late 1980s and early 1990s, we found ourselves ensnared in a discussion of so-called “censorship.” The National Endowment for the Arts, (a luxury no deeply indebted nation should indulge), had provided grants to two particularly obnoxious exhibits. One was a photograph by Andres Serrano called “Piss Christ” that depicted a crucifix submerged in a jar of the artist’s urine. The other was a series of homoerotic photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe, featuring, to cite just one example, a man’s anus being penetrated by a bullwhip.
Liberals cried “censorship” but that was not the case at all.
No one was proposing to deny Mapplethorpe or Serrano the opportunity to sell their miserable wares to willing buyers, or to exhibit them at private galleries (which indeed happened). Certainly no one was threatening to deny employment to the artists (which happens in countries that practice censorship), or God forbid, to arrest them. The proposal was simply to refrain from offering such works taxpayer subsidies.
Liberals want to crush America as we have known it. If you’re a liberal, just admit it, you want socialism. You want everything to be “fair.” You want fast Internet broadband to be a right. You want the government to provide free health care. Free education. You want everyone to subsidize “art” – even the repulsive stuff.
You want the government to feed your kids breakfast and lunch at school, and when school is off for vacation, you want the kids to be able to go to school and still get their free lunch. You want the government to guaranty your job, your salary, your paid vacation. You want the government to ban substances and food that is not good for you.
You want the government to guaranty a comfortable place to live. You want government sponsored transportation systems that can take you to work for free. You want to define when people have made “enough” money. You want a “living wage.” You want to be able to retire and live comfortably after you turn 65. You want Social Security to cover all of your expenses once you retire.
Come on, just admit it. That’s the Democratic National Committee’s platform. Right there in that paragraph! Embrace it!
