By Arnold AhlertThe article goes on to examine the left's fascination with politically opportunistic use of murdered children. Then the article compares the left's defense of grisly abortion practices (by Dr Gosnell), even when fully born children are aborted (murdered).
"Everyone in America not living under a rock has heard of Adam Lanza. Kermit Gosnell? Not so much.
"The reason is obvious. Adam Lanza's rampage accrues to progressive ambitions of gun "control," or as those in California more than willing to sign a petition to outlaw guns and confiscate them from law-abiding citizens reveals, the attempt to toss the Second Amendment on the ash heap of history--absent the "messy" amendment process outlined in the Constitution.
"Toward that end, progressives will use the corpses of 20 dead schoolchildren from Newtown as stage props, telling their fellow Americans that "something must be down now!" or we will all bear the burden of Adam Lanza's depravity. In short, you either buy into some progressive version of gun control, or you become accomplices to Adam Lanza's crime.
"The Whitehouse.gov website makes this equation clear. "While no law or set of laws will end gun violence, it is clear that the American people want action. If even one child's life can be saved, then we need to act," the statement reads. "Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love."
"The parents of the dead children were also turned into tools of the progressive agenda. The president saw fit to fly them to Washington, D.C. aboard Air Force One to ratchet up pressure on those Senators who might still have some peculiar affinity for protecting Constitutional rights. One parent, Francine Wheeler, whose 6-year-old son, Ben, was among the 20 children killed, was given the opportunity to speak to the nation, when the president turned over his weekly address to the grieving mother. The Washington Post made sure no one could misinterpret what that effort was all about. "Wheeler's remarks are a heart-wrenching capstone to a week of intense lobbying in Washington by parents of children slaughtered at Sandy Hook Elementary School," the paper reports."Yet as a tragically minuscule number of Americans are aware, some heart-wrenching stories are "more equal" than others. This brings us inexorably to Kermit Gosnell."
Then Mr Ahlert points out
"Adam Lanza did not grow up in a vacuum. He was marinated in the same despicable culture as the rest of us. It is the one where life is exceedingly cheap, and the ludicrous promise of the pro-abortion crowd that the procedure would be safe, legal and rare, has devolved into an orgy of self-gratification, where abortion on demand is exactly that, no questions asked."
The American Left demands we satiate ourselves with our own blood while they lead us to slaughter. We must resist the Left and defend innocent life while not falling for their schemes to destroy our freedom.
