It’s called snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. And Republicans, the Stupid Party, are aces at this. “On a serious country’s scale of priorities, abortion would not rate a mention,” I wrote in “Should Deranged, Moronic Females Really Be Procreating?”
Have we not just lived through three years during which the Pharma State has consolidated power as never before? On pain of taking the Covid jab, the state has de facto established license to shutter a subject’s business, deny him freedom of movement, quarantine, fire, and separate him from loved ones. Arrests of political opponents without due process have become more common in police state America than in Apartheid-era South Africa (which, as chronicled in Into The Cannibal’s Pot, was unsurprisingly legalistic and by-the-book).
Besides, Why be so politically and culturally self-immolating?
Let progressive women—especially the fulminating fiends twerking and tantruming across the country—suction their uteruses for all I care. As evolutionary psychologist Ed Dutton has suggested, “Some people voluntarily resigning from the gene pool is a good thing.”
Fred Reed, whose column can be found on Barely a Blog, captures the decay of America in skin-crawling detail:
Consider America today. By comparison with Japan, China, Korea, it is a barbarity, a dumpster, an asylum, an abattoir, an astonishment. San Francisco loses conventions because of needles and excrement on the sidewalks. Almost weekly we see multiple shootings in stores, high schools and, now, grade schools. Murders of whites by blacks run at thirty a month, the news being suppressed. In cities across the country crime is out of control, the tax bases moving out, bail abolished so criminals are freed in hours. Stores leave to escape undiscouraged shoplifting and robbery. Seven hundred homicides a year in Chicago, 300 in Baltimore, and at least twice as many shot but survive, similar numbers in a dozen cities. For practical purposes, law does not exists in these ungovernable enclaves. Sexual curiosities, once called perversions, flourish with American embassies hoisting flags in support of transsexualism. Mobs topple historical statues. Many tens of thousands live on sidewalks and a hundred thousand a year die of opioid overdoses. The country drops math requirements and English grammar in schools, AP courses, and SATs as racist. The economy declines, jobs have left for other climes, medical care is beyond most people’s means, government is corrupt and incompetent, and wars are unending. There is actual hatred between racial, political, and regional groups. Ominously, gun sales are up.
But amid the collapse of the American civilization, Republicans are most concerned with the enemy’s embryos. As a result, a presentable young Democrat has captured a New York district that could have swung Republican:
But after Democrat Pat Ryan held off Republican Marcus Molinaro on Tuesday in a special election to fill a vacant swing seat in upstate New York, winning the 19th Congressional District 51.1% to 48.9%, with most precincts reporting, it appears Biden’s party is poised to put up a fight, at least, in November. This House seat is considered a bellwether, voting for President Barack Obama in 2012, then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016, and the current president in 2020.
“It’s quite clear that the Dems are running well among highly engaged voters,” tweeted Nate Cohn, the New York Times chief political analyst. “If it lasts, that’ll get them pretty far in the midterm, even if they will have some additional ground to cover.” The Democrats, defending a threadbare, five-seat House majority, are hopeful the outcome in New York’s 19th Congressional District is a sign of so much more. …
This is a harbinger of things to come, in November 2022. The Mutants are riled and restless.
Establishment Republicans really don’t care which party wins as long as they hold onto their positions of power. The Republican Party is, at best, just another wing of the socialist internationale aka the Deep State and they have no real interest in supporting the real conservatives in their own party. Mitch McConnell recently told us that much in so many words.
You’re correct, Ilana, of course. In addition to forcing some of them to have children…we taxpayers have to pay for most all of them and their ilk coming across the border!
I submit that the Republican partisans are not stupid. There are confused. Confusion and stupidity are not the same thing though the actions of both seem very similar and the results practically identical. After DJT I never under estimate the charade the Republicans put on or the confusion they sow to seem different than their opponents. I think what sets them apart is not stupidity, or ignorance but confusion as they flail around trying to show they are different. It is their confusion that sets them apart from the Democrats. But together the uni-party gets the job done.
I think the Supreme Court decision was on point, insofar as the right to privacy, the right to be left alone, is so vague that any five Supreme Court Justices can invoke it for any social policy they think would be good. They thereby transform the Court into a de facto legislative body, since it is no longer constrained by Constitutional limitation. On the other hand, the fact that a social policy cannot be justified by the Constitution does not make it a bad social policy; a social policy can be pragmatically justified even if it cannot be justified as a lofty Constitutional right. Pragmatically, women are going to keep getting pregnant and having abortions, so it would be good social policy to supply clean and competent abortionists. Society need not encourage and glorify “a woman’s right to choose,” but some realism is in order.
As an analogy, we don’t make trauma centers illegal because we don’t approve of people drinking and having auto accidents. People are going to drink and regret the consequences; women are going to have unprotected sex, forced or voluntary, and regret the consequences.
