The Left Hates Children

In recent days, little children and teenagers have been all over Capitol Hill. They were being used as props in a campaign to pass radical legislation that we are told will stop climate change.

In recent days, little children and teenagers have been all over Capitol Hill. They were being used as props in a campaign to pass radical legislation that we are told will stop climate change. 

These children have been told that they are all going to die in 12 years unless the “adults” in Congress completely turn life upside down as we know it. No more air travel. No more hamburgers. No more fossil fuels. But lots and lots of big government controlling what little would be left of our economy. 

Oh, by the way, there would be no more children either.

The darling of the progressive left, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), discussed in a recent Instagram video the “legitimate question” of whether we should even have children given the damage done to the planet.

Using frightened children to advocate for socialism and something more barbaric than China’s “one child policy” would be bad enough. But Senate progressives managed to outdo AOC with a vote Monday night essentially allowing fourth trimester abortions. 

I know there are only three trimesters in pregnancy. But the left is now arguing for the right to kill a baby if it manages to escape the womb alive.

The vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act was 53-to-44. Fifty out of fifty-three Republicans voted for the bill. (Due to travel delays, three Republican senators were unable to vote.) But even with their support, the bill still would have failed to overcome the 60-vote threshold needed to defeat the Democrat filibuster. 

Just to be clear, the bill did not limit abortion in any way. It simply declared that a born baby is entitled to legal protection and medical care; that infanticide is not acceptable in this country. Incredibly, 44 out of 47 Democrats, including every announced or likely Democrat presidential candidate in the Senate, seem to believe it is. 

Remember back in 2008 when Pastor Rick Warren asked Barack Obama, “When does a baby get human rights?” Obama couldn’t answer the question then. Sadly, 44 senators couldn’t answer it Monday night.

This is where the slippery slope of abortion has taken us: We are now debating whether a born baby has any rights at all.

Help us expose the left’s extremism. Share this important report with your friends and family members. 

And please stand with me as we fight for faith, family and freedom!

Trump Responds

President Trump was quick to respond, tweeting Monday night:

“Senate Democrats just voted against legislation to prevent the killing of newborn infant children. The Democrat position on abortion is now so extreme that they don’t mind executing babies AFTER birth.

"This will be remembered as one of the most shocking votes in the history of Congress. If there is one thing we should all agree on, it’s protecting the lives of innocent babies.”

Once again, this president is showing a willingness to fight on values issues. No one had to pressure Trump to issue a statement following the vote. And I guarantee you that none of the “professional” GOP consultants would have written THAT statement.

Thank you, Mr. President, for boldly defending the sanctity of life.

Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) tweeted this after Monday night’s vote:

“Republican politicians just tried (and failed) again to score political points at the expense of women. Enough. Women and their doctors should decide what’s best for their health — not the @SenateGOP.”

Read that again, and remind yourself that we’re talking about a baby outside the womb. 

The woman who wants to be president thinks it is a matter of the woman’s health to kill the baby outside of the womb. At that point, Senator Warren, it’s not about the woman’s health anymore. It’s about the baby’s life. 

The Left Hates Women

Not long ago, liberal politicians routinely accused conservatives of “waging war on women.” I think we need to revisit that theme, and especially the left’s war on real women.

Once again, boys are dominating girls’ sports. Two transgender girls (biological boys) finished first and second in Connecticut’s indoor track championships. Had they competed against boys, they would not have finished in the top five. 

But in the process of defeating girls, these boys have denied young women college scholarships and shattered their dreams of a better future. And the left thinks this is progress.

Not only is this not progress, it is fundamentally unfair. 

For two years in a row, Mack Beggs, a transgender boy (a biological girl), won the Texas girls’ wrestling championship. This gets a little confusing, so stick with me. 

Texas requires student athletes to compete against other athletes of the same gender according to their birth certificate. But Beggs was receiving regular testosterone injections. In other words, “he” was taking steroids, making “him” stronger. That would normally disqualify an athlete.

And when a woman at a gym complains that there is a man in her locker room, it’s her membership that gets revoked.

This is insanity! 

But if you dare to speak out against it, the tyrants of tolerance will crush you. Just ask famed tennis champion and gay rights activist Martina Navratilova. She recently expressed her views on the subject of trans athletes, writing:

“It’s insane and it’s cheating. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her. It would not be fair.”

For that, Navratilova was excommunicated from the progressive movement.

Where is the National Organization for Women on this issue? And exactly which women does NOW represent now? The real ones or the pretend ones?

Ready For Reparations?

The left is really on a roll right now. Democrat presidential candidates are rushing to embrace every radical idea out there, including reparations for slavery. The idea is opposed by 70% of Americans, and for obvious reasons: Who is going to pay?

But never mind the injustice of telling millions of immigrants that they owe money to the fourth or fifth generations of slaves. 

Never mind the injustice of telling the ancestors of people who lived in non-slave states that they owe something. 

Never mind the logic of suggesting that someone today is somehow at a disadvantage because of slavery, which ended in 1865. 

Put all that aside. 

Progressives often accuse conservatives of being divisive, of trying to pit us one against the other. It’s hard to come up with something more divisive than telling millions of young minorities that whatever is wrong in their lives now is due to what happened 150 years ago, and that the rest of the country owes them something. 

This idea is so divisive, it must have been cooked up in the Kremlin because no American would come up with it!
