In spite of the Empty Chair media, Kermit Gosnell is trending on twitter. This sick, pathetic excuse for a human being is on trial in Philadelphia for the murder of seven babies at the Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society — babies who’d survived abortions only to have Gosnell and his staff viciously murder them by snipping their spinal cords. It’s up to Americans of good conscience to keep this trending on twitter and to demand media coverage. The same sort of coverage they breathlessly provided endlessly for …oh let’s see….George Zimmerman, Sandy Hook, Sandra Fluke, any abortion clinic bomber, animal-killer, football player’s imaginary girlfriend, etc.
But in the case of the Philadelphia “doctor” whose own personal Hippocratic oath reads, “Do as much harm as possible in the name of the Almighty Dollar” instead of the actual “First, do no harm”, the mainstream media has displayed a stunning and blatant lack of interest. As my dear friend, journalist Harriet Baldwin noted in her Examiner piece:
The “mainstream” or dinosaur media has largely ignored the Gosnell Abortion trial so unless you are an avid follower of news via the internet, chances are you haven’t even heard the details of babies born alive screaming outside the womb and Gosnell and his abortion workers snipping the spinal cords of live babies.
Gosnell, 72, is charged with murdering seven babies at Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society and with the death of the woman, who suffered cardiac arrest after she was given too much anesthesia.
A Gosnell worker described the abortion house of horrors as “raining fetuses and blood all over the place.”
It has been reported by worker/witnesses that the babies’ screams sounded like “a little alien.”
Brent Bozell, President and CEO of the Media Research Center and 20 other Conservatives- have petitioned the major news outlets to cover the trial, which for the most part, has been blacked out.
List Of Conservatives Speaking Out On Media Blackout Of Gosnell Trial
One has to wonder why the major media “news” outlets have all but blacked out the details of this monstrous murder trial and it’s horrifying details.
This is just the type of story that should have grassroots activists on their feet, on the phones and writing e-mails to ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC and ask WHY?
The old guard media seems to be having a feeding frenzy over gun control and aiding in the usurpation of the rights of lawful gun owners- but not on the Gosnell Trial, taxpayer fundedPlanned Parenthood or even the warped, life and beliefs of Margaret Sanger who wanted to eradicate the Black race.
“Doctor” Kermit Gosnell.
Baldwin also referenced Sarah Palin’s pointed Facebook commentary in which she rightfully took aim at squishy “let’s call a truce on social issues” Republicans while linking to Kirsten Power’s Gosnell opinion piece in USA Today:
As many in our party call for “social truces” and encourage candidates to stop talking about social issues, I’d remind them to heed the advice of Lady Thatcher: “This is no time to go wobbly.” If our country does not start to focus on returning to a culture that respects life, how can we ever expect to solve the growing problem of violence?
I wonder if “calling a truce on social issues” was the underlying motivation for squishy GOP moderate Tom Ridge to relax the government accountability standards for Pennsylvania abortion clinics during his tenure. According to Business Insider:
The clinic was not inspected from 1993 to 2010, when FBI agents finally raided the place. They found moaning women covered in blood-stained blankets and jars with severed fetus feet, according to the 281-page grand jury report.
The grand jury report that lays out allegations against Gosnell has an entire section called “How did this go on so long?” The simple answer is politics.
Pennsylvania’s health department stopped routine inspections of abortion facilities in the state after Tom Ridge, a pro-choice Republican, became governor in 1995.
Health department lawyers “changed their legal opinions and advice to suit the policy preferences of different governors,” health department official Janet Staloski said in grand jury testimony. In this case, she said the state didn’t want to be “putting a barrier up to women” who wanted abortions.
In 1999, high-level Pennsylvania officials met to consider starting up regular inspections again but decided not to, state lawyer Kenneth Brody testified, according to the grand jury report. He told the grand jury that officials were concerns that abortion clinics wouldn’t meet inspection standards and then there “would be less abortion facilities.”
To the so-called GOP “moderates” who rule the consultant and D.C. political classes, and to the licentious libertarians who want to scrub all morality and basic humanity from the public square while simultaneously enabling evil – shame on you!
Thanks to an unconstitutional decision erroneously rendered by the Supreme Court, abortion is not only legal in the USA, but the federal government can and does force taxpayers to fund it — to the tune of $542 million to Planned Parenthood alone in 2011. Given that financially supporting an organization founded by a racist/eugenicist is mandatory for law-abiding, taxpaying Americans, it is not only entirely reasonable but essential that there be strict oversight of all abortion clinics receiving taxpayer dollars. So even if you believe abortion is the taking of innocent human life, your hard-earned income is partially used to keep the abortion mill churning.
And to all of the anti-war libertarians who side with the Left on matters of national security, here’s a little reminder about the US Constitution: among the limited duties it ascribes to the federal government protection from foreign and domestic enemies is one. War is hell. War sucks. So does the reality that there are evil nations and people who want to harm us. Thus, sometimes war is justified to protect Americans, American interests and our allies. That is quite different from nation-building, which I fundamentally reject.
What’s not enshrined in the US Constitution? The right to taxpayer-funded abortions.
While I’m on the topic of hypocrisy, where are all of the so-called feminists who care so much about women, especially poor, vulnerable women? Nowhere to be found in the case of Kermit Gosnell. As I tweeted earlier:
We can rightfully call out the massive genocide of tyrants like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot, but when you get right down to it, the most horrific, widespread slaughter of human beings is abortion. The fact that it’s even legal in a country like the United States of America is an absolute travesty and disgrace. We can also chastise China for its forced abortions and one-child policy but that too rings hollow coming from a country that claims to be founded upon the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
You know what else rings hollow? The squishy GOP and self-centered libertarian rallying cries to sweep social issues under the carpet. Our culture of abortion has wrought near irreparable damage to this once great nation, by design. Are we as constitutional conservatives and people of faith going to sit down and shut up when it comes to calling out the evils of abortion and monsters like Gosnell? Or are we going to fight for the heart and soul of this country?
As my good friend Michael Fanelli pointed out on Facebook, the devil never rests. Can he count on us to be passive accomplices in the destruction of all that is good about the USA?
Finally, to those who don’t believe in God I would add that even if you are ok with abortion to some degree, if you’re not viscerally horrified by the Gosnell story you might want to check and see if you have a heart. How any decent American could turn a blind eye to this is further proof of the success of the Communist Agenda.
