Ok, well, football season is officially over, and congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles and the Alabama Crimson Tide for ending this season with outstanding championship games. It’s seriously basketball season, and for me, the focus is on college basketball. Lo and behold, we got game on Rocky Top again. Yep, the Tennessee Volunteers are 18-5 under third-year Coach Rick Barnes and are returning the glory days of Tennessee basketball — Bernard King, Ernie Grunfeld, Dale Ellis, and Allan Houston. We’re a month away from that crazy time of the year called “March Madness”. Therefore, all metaphors at this time must be college basketball related.
When something is so very easy to grasp, to understand, or to do, we call it a layup in American vernacular. Well, I want to present to y’all, once again, something that should be a slam dunk for the GOP.
As reported by CNS News, “If Congress votes to fund the government at current levels again this week through a continuing resolution (CR), it will also continue funding Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider. Pro-life groups are calling on Republican lawmakers to make good on their promise to defund Planned Parenthood.
When asked whether she supports Congress continuing to fund Planned Parenthood through a CR, American Life League President Judie Brown said, “Of course not. There’s no excuse for this, and I do not understand why we have such a weak-kneed Congress. “I mean in one sense I do, because I don’t think that we have enough members of Congress who are truly interested in defunding Planned Parenthood in the first place, but secondly, all of the evidence that they have gotten, just setting aside everything else on the baby body parts industry, if they can’t gather the wherewithal to cut these people off, I don’t know what I can say,” Brown added.
Dr. Aleva King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, told CNSNews.com, “I do not support continuing to fund Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution. I don’t want to see a government shutdown but I also don’t want to see $1.5 million a day flowing to the nation’s largest abortion provider. “My prayer is that Congress will fund community health centers but withdraw funding from any organization that makes its money from the blood of the innocents,” King said.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said, “I think it’s repulsive that Republicans would continue to fund Planned Parenthood through any sort of continuing resolution or baby body parts. Their director was forced to resign. Other abortionists have been convicted of various criminal activities, botched abortions, we’ve recorded again and again. “And no taxpayer funding should ever go to fund such a horrific criminal enterprise like Planned Parenthood. The Republicans talk about shutting down the government over building a wall. I say the most worthy thing you can shut down the government for is to defund Planned Parenthood,” Newman said.”
Yes, the GOP has added in funding for community health centers which means government care and providing women’s health care needs. So, why is the federal government of these United States of America providing $568.7 million of US taxpayer funds to a private sector, not for profit organization that is running a profit? From a fiscal perspective, it truly makes no sense, and there alone the argument should be won. That’s a layup.
But the powerful slam dunk comes from the mouths of the progressive socialist left themselves, who seem to decry everything as “racist” or “racism.” I’ll present the very same argument here as I did before the Dallas City Council when they made the absurd and insidious decision to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from Lee Park. If the liberal progressive left is so concerned about things that are racist — y’all know they actually aren’t — then why do they consent to $568.7 million going to fund an organization founded by a known white supremacist and racist who spoke at Ku Klux Klan rallies — Margaret Sanger? The organization that Sanger founded, Planned Parenthood, thrives today with $568.7 million in taxpayer funding. It was Margaret Sanger who referred to blacks as “weeds” and “undesirables” and her vision of killing off black babies has ballooned into an industry responsible for the murders of 19 million black babies in the womb since the 1973 Roe v Wade ruling.
So, where are the loud voices of Black Lives Matter in this case? Oops, that’s right. The only black lives that matter to those bought and paid for sellouts are those white liberal progressives tell them to care about. Sadly, this is all the truth, fact, non-debatable, but where is the courage of the GOP to confront the left and tell them we’re not funding an organization founded by a white supremacist, and racist? That’s the slam dunk proposal and means to defund Planned Parenthood.
I’d love to see Nancy Pelosi give another one of her delusional eight-hour rants from the House floor about this matter. Hey, Chuck and Nancy, y’all are the real racists who support an organization founded by a racist with the expressed intent of killing black babies, before they’re born. The Democrat Party has returned to its true origins as the party that started the Ku Klux Klan…after all, Robert Byrd was a grand wizard of the Klan, and was praised by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama. Heck, it was Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, who proudly accepted the Margaret Sanger Award — and black women were duped into supporting her, or perhaps they willingly like knowing about 19 million black babies being ripped apart in the womb.
Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy of the progressive socialist left claiming they care so much about the DACA recipients…all the while, they stand with, and for, an organization that kills babies, destroying their dreams in the most brutal fashion? And these are the chuckleheads who talk about compassion? Doggone, gimme a break!
So, what say ya, Senate and House GOP, anyone of ya got the cojones to drive down the middle of the lane and do a thunder slam dunk? Why do y’all continue to acquiesce and succumb to the abject fear of ending this travesty, and utter fiscal irresponsibility? American taxpayer dollars should not be going to a diabolical organization founded by a racist…that’s who Margaret Sanger was; that’s what Planned Parenthood is.
A woman’s right to choose? Ok, choose life, and what the liberal progressive left is talking about has nothing to do with “choice.” Sadly, it has everything to do with killing an unborn child…then again, the liberal progressive left cares more about baby seals, puppies and kittens.
Defund Planned Parenthood of the $568.7 million in American taxpayer funds it receives. They can get the cash from George Soros.
