Liberals and their twisted definition of “pro-choice”

The debate over vaccinations has been in the news recently. As I perused the scholarly thoughts of the iY generation on Tumblr, I stumbled across this:

vaccinations

Can you tell this was from Tumblr? Lol!

So how does the issue of your choice to vaccinate your children compare to your choice on the issue of abortion?

similar

Are we comparing apples to apples or apples to oranges?

The left aim to halt any and all pro-choice debates by comparing one issue of choice to another: You’re either pro-choice in all issues or are a hypocritical republican that only believes in your pro-choice issues. Must one be “pro-choice” in all issues in order to truly be pro-choice?

In trying to understand liberals’ debate on pro-choice I asked myself, “Must one give up their religious beliefs in order to be pro-choice?”, “What if you aren’t religious yet still believe abortion is wrong?”, “Why do liberals support their choices while disparaging a different point of view?”. (Okay, we do the same thing, too. At least we don’t try to shut down the debate.)

Abortion is not going away: Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and will never be repealed. Why is it inappropriate for one to fight for those who have no voice? And how does one support the choice to have an abortion that is based solely on the sex of the baby?

As the left apply the term “pro-choice” to other issues, what exactly is the definition of “pro-choice”? From various on-line dictionaries:

  • Thefreedictionary.com: Favoring legalized abortion as an option for an unwanted pregnancy.
  • Merriam-webster.com: Believing that pregnant women should have the right to choose to have an abortion
  • Dictionary.reference.com: Supporting or advocating legalized abortion.
  • Wikipedia: Pro-choice is the position which advocates the existence of a woman’s right to choose whether to have an abortion.

So the definitions from these dictionaries all relate to abortion yet it is now applied to every other societal issue, especially if it proves that evil republicans are hypocrites.

liberal tolerance

Let’s take a look at some other “pro-choice” control issues that liberals support, shall we?

  • Soda: No soda larger than 16 ounces for you!
  • Salt: “We remove your temptation!”
  • Obamacare: “Obamacare is the law and people need to accept that!”
  • Gun Control: Oops, I mean the “gun safety” movement.
  • School lunches: “Eventually schools will be filled with children who never knew meals that did not conform to new nutritional standards.”

Isn’t the de facto definition of pro-choice imply that you are inherently “in favor of” or “supporting ofyour right to choose which side of an issue you wish to support?

Then why do liberals use personal choices against us?

  • To make a political point. Just look at homosexual marriage - how many states actually had voters approve it and how many had court activists/state politicians make it legal.
  • To prove that republicans are hypocritical. You’re pro-choice but want to cut funds for women and children! Republicans want to force every woman who is pregnant to give birth to their child, but when the woman does the Republican support is nowhere to be found. You’re pro-choice but support the death penalty! Republicans talk about “personal responsibility,” but they should follow their own words instead of hiding behind loopholes and lobbyist to collect more money! You get the idea. Straw man arguments.
  • To make you distrust your own choice. If you don’t tow the line, you are a racist, homophobe, religious zealot who hates people not like you.

racist

No matter what side you end up on a particular issue, you are still making a choice, a personal choice. It is your choice to defend it, stand up for your beliefs, and explain your reasoning for that decision.

Course those bleeding heart liberals, as welcoming as they are with their broad minds, would support a person’s right to their choice. And I bet they are proud of it!

Fourth-grader suspended after using magic from ‘The Hobbit’

homeschool

OAOA.com: A Kermit (Texas) parent said his fourth-grade student was suspended Friday for allegedly making a terroristic threat.

His father, Jason Steward, said the family had been to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” last weekend. His son brought a ring to his class at Kermit Elementary School and told another boy his magic ring could make the boy disappear.

Steward said the principal said threats to another child’s safety would not be tolerated – whether magical or not. Principal Roxanne Greer declined to comment on the matter. “All student stuff is confidential,” Greer said. She referred a call from the Odessa American to Kermit ISD Superintendent Bill Boyd, who did not return a phone call.

Steward said he didn’t understand why his son was removed from school and why the district didn’t just send a letter home.

He said he requested that the school send him “something in writing” saying that the school suspended his son and why they suspended him. Steward was told the school would put the letter in the mail.

Steward said his son has attended Kermit Elementary since August. The 9-year-old has been in in-school suspension for referring to another student’s skin color and got in trouble for bringing a kids’ book about pregnancy to school.

CUNY to teachers: Stop calling students ‘Mr.’ or ‘Ms.’

stupidity

Campus Reform: To avoid gender discrimination, school staffers at the City University of New York were recently urged to cease using “Mr.” and “Ms.” when addressing their students.

An internal memo circulated by administrators to faculty at the university’s Graduate Center described the new policy as part of an “ongoing effort to ensure a respectful, welcoming and gender-inclusive environment,” as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

According to interim Provost Louise Lennihan, who signed the memo, eliminating the “gendered salutations” will better “accommodate properly the diverse population of current and prospective students. Instead of using gendered titles, Lennihan encouraged staff members to begin addressing students by first and last name only.

CUNY spokeswoman Tanya Domi said the policy is part of the university’s effort to “comply with Title IX legal principles,” referencing the 1972 federal law that prohibits gender-based discrimination in higher education. While Title IX’s purpose is to shield individuals from gender-based discrimination, no portion of the law itself requires the use of gender-neutral titles.

“I love the concept, but they are not mandated to do this,” Saundra Schuster, an attorney and advisory board member for the Association of Title IX Administrators, told the Journal.

Claire Bishop, a professor of art history at CUNY, embraced the new policy for reasons apart from its original purpose. “I don’t use ‘Mr.’ or ‘Mrs.’ anyway. What’s anyone’s marital status got to do with how we address them? Why should women have to say whether they’re married or not?” asked Bishop, adding that “[t]hat’s increasingly something that our society has got to take into account.”

The New York Daily News objected to the policy in an editorial Wednesday, describing CUNY’s decision to “extinguish discrimination by rewiring the English language” as “no business for a university to ply.”

“Prefixes that have stood the test of time are suddenly forbidden because someone might feel oppressed receiving an envelope addressed to the former Mr. John Smith, now Ms. Jane Smith,” wrote the editorial board.

Female student raps about raping Jameis Winston with Heisman Trophy in raunchy music video

lena w

Campus Reform: A student at Florida State University (FSU) has become an Internet sensation for her rap videos and artistic works about menstruation, rape culture and feminist issues, all funded by the school’s grant money.

Senior Lena Weissbrot found inspiration for her rap video, “Garnet & Gold,” following the alleged mishandling of rape allegations against FSU’s star quarterback Jameis Winston.

According to the Huffington Post, a painting Weissbrot created depicting “Winston on a throne receiving fellatio from a fraternity brother, while a woman with the Heisman Trophy—which Winston won—assaults a nude version of him,” went viral in 2014. The video is Weissbrot’s follow up.

Weissbrot received a $4,000 academic grant and was the recipient of FSU’s Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Award her sophomore year for her 50-page digital creation of “ Maybe She Likes It: A Web Comic Exploring Internet Technology and Gender Equality,” which uses nude images to discuss female body issues, gender equality, and the depiction of teen models.

Weissbrot’s work features sexually erotic displays, “misogynist-undertones,” and frequent images of menstruation to combat the historical male-instituted taboo of feminine functions.

“She’s doing almost graduate-level work,” Carrie Ann Baade, a professor of painting at FSU and the grant work supervisor told HuffPo. “Frankly, she’s doing work that’s more interesting than most graduate-level work. She’s the right artist to be responding to outrageous and scandalous trends in culture that should be addressed.

Weissbrot also created a flash game called “ Fuck Everything,” because of her belief that video games primarily aim to serve male interests. The goal of the game is to make it through a gendered protocol and ultimately have sex with a nude girl. Weissbrot included a 70-page thesis further explaining its purpose.

“As a professor, we’re all having to meet this generation and accept them for who they are, and understand what it’s like to have an identity that’s really quite virtual,” said Baade. “[Weissbrot is] addressing a lot of experiences she had growing up on online sex chat rooms and having an avatar, and not feeling as powerless as women did in the past. She has a lot of sexual ferocity.”

Other feminists have been critical of Weissbrot’s artwork, claiming she portrays the movement as “man-hating” through her images of severed penises.

“In art, there’s this understanding that it’s separate from reality,” Weissbrot told HuffPo. “People definitely read into things a lot.”

According to Baade, Weissbrot has the largest body of work she has seen in her 14-years of teaching; however, she says that the senior is able to work quickly once inspiration strikes.

Weissbrot made a spectacle of the tragic shooting at University of California, Berkeley by student Elliot Rodgers—who posted a chilling video on YouTube prior to his attack, explaining his utter disdain for the women who had denied him during his college years. Weissbrot posted a video responding to Rodgers, mocking him and rephrasing his words to address rape culture and street harassment.

“It’s strange to see how people talk to you as a girl,” said Weissbrot, who claims the majority of her material comes from observing the college social scene. “It’s more prevalent at frats, but also just going out to parties and clubs for the first time. You become hyper-aware of these sexualized gender roles. The attitude is like, there’s no reason to talk to someone of the opposite sex unless you want to have sex with them.”

Weissbrot is a member of the Art Students League and has been featured on the Dean’s and President’s lists. Despite entering her last semester of college, Weissbrot is not sure what she wants to do professionally, but says she hopes to continue to produce “pretty weird, progressive content.”

On Lena’s bio page it says, “Weissbrot hopes to attend graduate school or pursue rap”. Good luck with that!

Dad Posts Meddling Note Sent Home by Teacher over Packed Lunch

note

GMA.Yahoo.com: A fed-up Missouri father posted a photo of the letter he received from his daughter’s substitute teacher who criticized the girl’s lunch.

One problem: the teacher didn’t see her whole lunch.

Dr. Justin Puckett was asked to sign a note sent home with his daughter Alia after the teacher saw her eating marshmallows and chocolate at lunch earlier this week.

He refused to do so, and posted it online instead, saying that it was just the latest in what he sees as a growing trend of overreaching by authorities. “I think that this was just the straw that broke the camel’s back for me,” Puckett told ABC News.

The substitute teacher wrote in the note sent home on Tuesday that a cafeteria employee said that her lunch consisted of four chocolate bars, a bag of marshmallows, Ritz crackers and a pickle.

“Please see that she packs a proper lunch tomorrow(*),” the teacher wrote. An attempt to reach the teacher for comment wasn’t immediately successful.

Puckett told ABC News that, since the note was addressed to “Dr. and Mrs. Puckett,” it was clear that the teacher knew he was a physician which he said “just adds to the irony of it all.”

What the cafeteria worker and the substitute missed, however, was that the 8-year-old also had four pieces of ham and a low fat string cheese rather than a sandwich, since “we don’t eat a lot of bread,” said Puckett, who is double board certified in osteopathic family medicine and obesity medicine.

“We leave it up to her and she looks at the school menu and she packs her own lunch and she’s a very independent second grader,” he told ABC News. “Sure, I’d liked her to pack a few more veggies and maybe a piece of fruit, but we compromise on pickles occasionally,” he wrote in his original Facebook post.

Kirksville, Missouri, school superintendent Damon Kizzire has apologized for the incident and said that the way it’s “being blown out of proportion is way out of line with how it was intended. It was all meant with the best of intentions.

Saint Paul describes the process that leads to LGBT

In Saint Paul’s day, Rome was completely perverted. In the first chapter of his letter to Roman Christians, he explains the process that lead to that condition. He also adds a stern reminder that we have also have been forgiven all our sins, and must not judge. God’s purpose is to seek and safe the lost sheep, and rescue them from their sins.

It happened in Rome before it happened here

They ignored the real God and replaced Him with their own version

When they wouldn’t listen, God said, “Have it your way”

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

a_aids_finalBecause of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. gayteacherThey are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

– Romans 1:18-32

Our children are the target

Children sitting inside school bus

They deserve our protection

But wait

God actually wants to rescue them from this lifestyle death style!

“You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment? Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?”

– Romans 2:1-4

St. Jude offers a word of caution

Be very careful in dealing with perversion

But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. They said to you, ‘In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.’ These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

– Jude 1:17-23

Americans want Karl Marx for president; think Dr. MLK died just recently

Mark Dice is a media analyst, author, and political activist who’s adept at capturing dumb Americans on video with his man-on-the-street interviews and fake petitions.

In 2013, Dice got one after another San Diego beach goers to sign a (fake) petition supporting Obama and his “communist agenda” and to get Karl Marx, who’s only been dead for 132 years, for president in 2016 ’cause, you know, Marx and Obama are good buds and Marx would continue Obama’s “communist agenda” in the White House. (See “No-info Californians endorse Karl Marx for president 2016”)

The latest:

Dice struck again, capturing on video Americans who think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had just died (when the man’s been dead for nearly 47 years), and that MLK was the first African-American black to walk on the moon.

Just remember: They vote!
