“Oh he’s personally against it, but he thinks it is important that those who support it have his open-minded and energetic backing–for the Greater Good.”

Is this:

A) A sarcastic condemnation of Tim Kaine’s vile sellout on abortion, or
B) A warm and affirming defense of Steve Bannon’s boast about providing a “platform for the Alt Right” which is “dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of European people in the United States” (i.e. “white identity”).

It is fascinating to watch “prolife” Trump supporters now wasting their days and nights striving with might and main to nuance, deny the existence of, excuse and defend the flaming obvious racism of the Alt Right Bannon champions instead of their supposed “core non-negotiable” issue of the sanctity of human life. This is how it perpetually goes for the “prolife” movement now enslaved to Trump. The unborn are human shields. The *real* Pearl of Great Price is whatever the Dear Leader wants–including Alt Right racism. The next four years will be spent defending such filth and endlessly parsing the hyper-nuanced meaning of “Dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of European people in the United States”. Golly! It’s all soooooo mysterious. Who even knows *what* it means! Let’s spend years making excuses for it.
