How do you know when a progressive-statist, i.e. a Democrat, is lying? Their lips are moving.
Since the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, progressive-statists have been beating the drums for disarming America “to protect the children.”
Don’t be fooled. These conniving jackals don’t give a rat’s patoot about children. All they want is power.
Follow this link to Freedom Outpost and read the vile comments by former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell, a Democrat (of course), about the Sandy Hook tragedy. Rendell exposes, with world-class callousness and insensitivity, the height and depth of progressive-statist hypocrisy.
According to Rendell, referring to the murder of 20 children,
“The good thing about Newtown is, it was so horrific that I think it galvanized Americans to a point where the intensity on our side is going to match the intensity on their side.”
The GOOD THING?
What good is there in the murder of 20 children? There is no possible gain for anyone, or for ANY cause, in the murder of 20 innocent children by any means. NONE!
We must never forget the victims of this senseless massacre. However, we should not become senseless and unfeeling either.
While the progressive-statists wring their hands and shed false tears over the victims of Sandy Hook, they hope you don’t remember the 40-year child- murder spree they continue to perpetrate on America — Abortion.
In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade [410 U.S. 113 (1973)] that abortion was legal in the United States.
The progressive-statists celebrate this ruling as a cornerstone for women’s rights. To conservatives, the Roe v. Wade decision is no more than a license for promiscuity, and a license to murder the innocent victims of it. In the warped, hedonistic world-view of the progressive-statist, actions have no consequences.
The Pro Life Action League website reports that,
“According to the Guttmacher Institute, there were 1.21 million abortions performed in the United States in 2008, the most recent year for which data is available. This amounts to 3,322 abortions per day.”
There are more than 3,000 babies legally murdered every day; this while the progressive-statists worry about the 68 people who were victims of mass murderers last year.
In 2008, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) statistics report 16,442 murders, approximately 13,154 (80 per cent) were killed with a firearm — 36 people per day — nearly ten times less than the abortion murder rate.
In fact, according to the same FBI statistics, 750,335 people were murdered in the entire 38-year period from 1973 through the end of 2011, nearly half a million (449,665) less than the one-year abortion toll in 2008.
The progressive-statists celebrate the murder of more than a million children every year and expect us to believe they care about the 20 children murdered at Sandy Hook by a deranged gunman with a gun.
Their crocodile tears are merely a hypocritical mask for their ultimate agenda: disarm and control the American people. This was the fear of the Founders and the raison d’être for the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
To the progressive-statist, 20 dead children are an opportunity; 1.2 million a year are inconsequential. After all, you can never let a good crisis go to waste.
Liars, hypocrites, and murders — beware, their lips are always moving.
