From Matt Walsh of The Matt Walsh Blog…
It’s time for all of us to understand that we are at war, and lives are at stake.
The enemy — the self-worshipping death cult known as modern liberalism — has become increasingly vile, violent, and deceitful, and so we must become increasingly bold, fearless, and aggressive in our response.
If you don’t believe me, consider this video.
Before you click on that link, I should warn you of its contents. It depicts a woman named Emily Letts — self described ‘patient advocate’ — getting an abortion. Now, Emily’s clip does not show any of the possibly less palatable aspects of hiring a contract killer to murder your child. Instead, it shows her smiling and giggling about how she got pregnant but ‘wasn’t ready for a baby.’ The portion where she actually gets the abortion only gives a glimpse of her face, as she chuckles and goes on about how ‘lucky’ she is, and how ‘supportive’ all of her abortion doctors have been.
It’s funny, I suppose murderers tend to be ‘supportive’ when you pay them 400 dollars to do what they do best.
When the ‘procedure’ is completed, Emily says “cool!” and is wheeled out of the room, childfree and grinning from ear to ear.
“I’m done! YAY!”
She laughs and celebrates as if she’d just gotten a tattoo, or her belly button pierced.
The video then jumps forward a few days, and treats us to Emily’s reflections on how the slaughter of her child has positively impacted her life. In perhaps the most bizarre and unsettling part of the entire bizarre and unsettling video, she says this:
“I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life. I knew what I was doing was right because it was right for me, and no one else.”
The last sentence perfectly encapsulates the entire philosophy of American ‘progressivism.’ I know what I’m doing is right, because it’s right for me. One day, I believe that phrase will be the epithet on the tombstone of modern culture.
I know that it is right — because it’s right for me. So succinct, so emblematic, so tragic.
But the first two sentences seem to be the words of a psychopath. She delights in the destruction of life, because it lets her know that life is possible. This sounds like dialogue from an episode of Dexter, not a thing that a real non-institutionalized person would actually say.
Lest you think that dear Emily represents the fringe of the abortion movement, consider that many mainstream leftwing blogs have seized on this video and passionately defended it. But, if you’re paying attention, you already know that this woman is not on the fringe, because there is no fringe. All abortion advocacy is extremism. It is impossible to be moderately in favor of abortion, just as it is impossible to be moderately opposed to it. Seeking a middle ground on abortion is like searching for a middle ground on slavery or genocide. It doesn’t exist, and those who wish to find it will inevitably end up in favor, and those in favor of murderous atrocities are always extremely in favor of murderous atrocities. Your acceptance — however moderate – of a deep and depraved evil, will color your soul in blackness, and send you barreling into a darkness that will utterly distort your moral compass, leading you to bow at the altar of the Culture of Death, where abortion is the highest sacrament.
Your conscience is not a lunch tray, with all of the different components separated into their own compartments. Your conscience is a bucket, and everything you dump into it will mingle and mix with everything else. The point is, if you pour an acceptance of child murder into your bucket, it will poison everything else, and soon even the good parts will be colored and tainted by your tacit endorsement of violence against the innocent. It changes you, and how you see the world. This will happen. There is no way around it. Anyone who celebrates or endorses abortion, but then pretends to recoil at any other form of murder, is lying. They are lying to themselves, and to you. They are liars, and I will call them that, without apology.
