Please tell me I’m not the only one who sees the irony here. This former head of Planned Parenthood, whose organization kills babies and sells their body parts, is calling into question the moral character of conservatives, pro-lifers? Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up, folks. Excuse me while I takes some time to shake-my-head in amazement.
I first found this story in Chicks on the Right. They brought these salient point to the discussion:
Again, 3.5 million babies have been slaughtered over the course of Richards’ reign. A woman who oversaw the murder of MILLIONS of babies is trying to call me an evil deceiver. Wow.
But you wanna know who would NEVER EVER lie, cheat or steal? Liberals.
And here’s Salon‘s twisted article. How can they print this stuff?
You write in the book that Planned Parenthood was dealing with fake news before that term even became famous. You were subject to a series of hoaxes, falsely accusing the organizations of all sorts of terrible things, including that you sell baby parts. You were called in front of Congress to defend yourself against these ridiculous hoaxes. What is your advice to the rest of us in the age of Trump, when lying and hoaxes unfortunately becoming normal in politics?
Yeah. Look it’s a big problem. I wish I had the magic solution. And I will say that because in many ways, Planned Parenthood was up first, we have worked with so many other organizations who’ve also been targets of these kinds of fake news attacks and undercover videos. I think it’s really important that what we did is to stand up for what we’re about and what we do.
… It does seem to me that there has been an escalation of these kinds of attacks on nonprofits like Planned Parenthood. What do you think accounts for that?
I don’t exactly know what accounts for it. Obviously, there were a couple of groups that specialize in this. I think that one of the things that I see on the right is they are so much more willing to lie, cheat, steal, deceive, break the law — tactics that frankly we don’t use in the progressive community. I do think that they have that advantage. The other is, they’ve got a lot of money. People who really probably could care less about the issue, but have complete focus on undermining any progressive institution that has either capacity or political power.
Seriously!? She doesn’t see a-n-y untoward behavior in the liberal community, but she sees it in conservatives? I just don’t know what to add to that, folks.
