Clearly the only pro-abortion party is the Republican Party…

Abortion is the wedge that drives the Republican Party's base to activism. So much so, it's promoted to the point where it drives the trued believers to act both violently and hypocritically.

Killing to "preserve" life? Well, if the only"life" that matters are unborn fetuses, then kill away.

It's clear as day why the right wing base acts this way. Their unbridled piety and exclusive moralism makes them believe that they're the ONLY good people around. They're killing abortion providers out of the goodness of their own hearts and because they believe that their "God" would want it that way.

But, let's just suppose that the methods by which just about all adherents to reproductive choice were so prevalent and effective that they all render the percentage unwanted pregnancies in this country to negligible levels. Basically, a rounding error. Let's also propose that medical advances in reproductive healthcare increase the percentage of healthy and viable WANTED pregnancies to the point where the need to prematurely end those pregnancies fell to about the same rounding error…

Where would the anti-abortion, pro-life crowd be then? Not encouraging disaffected armed true believers to kill medical providers in the name of their god, we hope.

The mostly white, gun-loving, religious right, anti-woman crowd needs the practice of abortion (for ANY reason) in this country to justify their own quest for power. Without it, they would be left out in the cold.

Anti-abortionists love abortion, as it gives them a reason to exist, judge others harshly and practice their hatred of women's reproductive freedom.



So Il Douche, Donaldo Trumpolini had to cancel his presser with endorsement by 100 Black Preachers

Trump campaign forced to cancel press conference with black pastors after they shred him in the press

A press conference scheduled for Monday, where GOP front runner Donald Trump had expected to announce the support of black clergyman, has been cancelled after the pastors blasted the campaign for announcing they would be endorsing him, reports CNN.

A scheduled private meeting with black pastors was supposed to be followed by a press conference where, according to the campaign: “A coalition of 100 African American Evangelical pastors and religious leaders will endorse the GOP front runner after a private meeting at Trump Tower.”

This did not sit well with prospective attendees, many of whom claim that they had no intention of endorsing Trump, with one calling him “an insult and embarrassment. But he represents the country we have become.”

Bishop Paul S. Morton of the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship tweeted on Friday that he had refused to meet with Trump, saying that the candidate lacks “respect for people.”

Only a narcissistic moron would announce such an "endorsement" before it even happened. It's quite clear that he has no idea how he sounds to other people.

It'll do you no good.

Republicans move to dump ‘fascist’ Donald Trump

AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE
27 NOV 2015 AT 08:27 ET

Many say the populist crazy talk is typical of the White House primaries, but Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s increasingly incendiary remarks are leading some conservatives to brand him a “fascist” and party rivals to ramp up attacks against him.

Most spectacularly, the real estate tycoon recently said he would support registering Muslims in a database, and insisted — despite lacking any evidence — he saw Arabs in New Jersey cheer when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11.

His stance has become so belligerent that voices are asking, even inside his party, whether he is committed to democratic values.

“Trump is a fascist. And that’s not a term I use loosely or often. But he’s earned it,” Max Boot, a military historian and foreign policy advisor to Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, posted on Twitter.

If anyone believes that fascism can never come to America...

They should take a closer look at Donald Trump.

Other than missing the visually symbolic icons of fascism at this point, what about him that isn't fascist?

He tried the militarization of himself as a military school student, which didn't catch on, of course. But if it did, I don't doubt that he'd be running around in jodhpurs, jackboots and khaki shirts with epaulets and fake medals for his rambling speeches by now.

He appeals to naked nationalism, decrying minorities as an internal enemy to be expunged, calling for military solutions abroad, encouraging thugs to attack his detractors, all on a virulently right-wing platform. His own egotism is promoted as "leadership" and his own narcissism runs amuck, while basking in the adornment of his angry and disaffected mob rallies.

Trump is a pure fascist of the classical sense and the only people who can stop him are Americans who refuse to fall in line with his fascist beliefs.

Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it.

What are you thankful for on this Thanksgiving?

I'm thankful for my health and the health of my family and the fact that we're able to be clothed, fed and sheltered in such a cruel, cruel world.

I'm also very thankful that I also won't have to deal with any crazy right wing nut job family members on Thanksgiving, because I DON'T HAVE ANY!

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody and GO LIONS!
