National Review Starts Ginning up the Prolife Sucker Routine

National Review Starts Ginning up the Prolife Sucker Routine July 2, 2012


because he just obviously cares so much about human life

and is not transparently a politician who says whatever he thinks will please you without a shred of personal integrity or conviction.

I can understand a prolifer voting for this guy on the theory that, “Hey! He’s a complete cynic but at least he will not embark on a missionary quest to crush the prolife movement and smash Catholic conscience since he just doesn’t care. I’ll take a completely unprincipled fake whose only interest is money over an apostate puritan with a religious zeal for imposing abortion on the world.” But any prolifer who votes for this amoral cynic with the conviction that this empty suit and unprincipled Mammon-worshipping non-entity has the slightest interest in unborn babies is a sucker of the first water. Romney’s sole interest in the unborn is, quite literally, in the medical waste firm he invested in which makes a killing disposing of aborted fetuses–much as the Reich economy got a real shot in the arm from all those no-longer-needed gold fillings. That Romney is one smart business cat.

This is what 30 years of staying on the GOP reservation has won the prolife movement: cynical manipulative demands from the Stupid Evil party demanding that we support the guy who owns the baby incinerators–or the babies get it.

I. will. not. play this cynical manipulative game any more. I will not vote for any candidate who supports (much less invests in) grave intrinsic evil.

Think differently about your vote. Other things are possible if we choose to do them.
