The Dems have dropped the last pretense of being anything but the party of zealous eager celebration of child murder by aborting the word “rare” from their cosmetically prettied up rhetoric about abortion rights. The maniacs and dogmatic ideologues are now in charge and are crazily refusing to give any quarter whatsoever to Dems who would empathize with them about many other issues but remain troubled by abortion and hope to moderate the party’s stance. For those you keeping track, that’s 30% of the Democratic party that considers itself prolife. The very clear message is an upraised middle finger and a demand to get out to anybody who is less than 100% passionately thrilled about killing children–and with luck infants–in maximum numbers in celebration of the power of the strong over the weak. It’s a classic example of sin making people really *really* stupid when, in a tight election year, you flip 30% of your supporters and tell them to get lost.
As the article makes clear, even some moderate abortion supporters are made queasy by this insane zealotry. It may be a time for prolife workers to make some loving appeals to those troubled in conscience as the mask slips off Moloch’s face. Meantime, I repeat: no Catholic in their right mind can support the lunatics who have taken over the Dem party. 30% of Dems: if you guys and the people on the Right who are just as queasy about the nuts and cynics who are running the GOP got together, you could actually find a candidate who *didn’t* want to enshrine monstrous evil as US policy and who might even want to do something rational aimed at the common good. Just a thought.
