On cue the Obama campaign just sent out a mass email in which abortion activist Sandra Fluke, a poster child for the Left’s politics of distraction, is once again lying about her favorite topic. This media-savvy cheerleader for government-provided contraceptives who grossly exaggerated how expensive they are in order to score political points is dishonestly arguing that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are “in lockstep with Akin on the major women’s health issues of our time” even though that presidential ticket has loudly condemned Akin and demanded he quit the race.
Michael Tomasky, who is just one strident soldier in an army of vicious left-wing propagandists, is falsely claiming that Congressman Paul Ryan, now the GOP vice presidential contender, shares Akin’s strange belief. It should surprise no one that Tomasky, whose publication Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, is funded by radical anti-American philanthropist George Soros.
And all of this is only the beginning.
The Akin contretemps comes at an especially bad time considering that Democrats are desperate to get voters worked up about social issues in order to distract from the pain and suffering that their economically illiterate policies have wrought. Dangling shiny, sparkly objects like the make-believe “war on women” in front of the public is the only hope that leftists have at keeping the White House and retaining the Senate.
Akin’s Olympian face-plant also comes at a time when social issues are temporarily at the forefront of national politics. It was just a few days ago that a gay activist shot up the headquarters of the staunchly pro-life Family Research Council’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.
It needs to be pointed out that in terms of electoral politics, it doesn’t matter that the basest of hypocrites are among the Democratic faithful. It doesn’t matter that some liberals don’t consider statutory rape to be rape — depending on who the accused person is. (See Whoopi Goldberg’s bizarre “it’s not rape-rape” comment in defense of fugitive film director Roman Polanski’s pederasty.)
It doesn’t matter that Democrats embrace serial sexual abusers Bill Clinton (an accused rapist himself) and the late Ted “Chappaquiddick” Kennedy. (And let’s not forget Clinton was impeached and that Kennedy engaged in secret, self-serving correspondence with the KGB, but I digress.)
It doesn’t matter how sorry Akin is for his remarks. “One word, one sentence, [on] one day out of place and all of a sudden the entire establishment turns on you,” said Akin as if someone forced him to say what he said. This is not a case of hypersensitive feminists or pro-abortion activists making a mountain out of a molehill. Akin pulled the pin on his own grenade.
At this point, it doesn’t matter that it’s not fair. It doesn’t matter that there is a perennial double standard. It doesn’t matter that Democrats get away with murder all the time. It’s politics and as somebody once said, politics isn’t beanball.
If America is to have a chance of surviving, Obamacare must be completely excised from the body politic. The future of the nation should not depend on an undisciplined backbench congressman who thinks his political future is more important than America’s.
Those who understand the minutiae of state election law say Akin’s last chance to get off the Missouri ballot is September 25.
History will be kind to him if he does the right thing. Akin still has an opportunity to fall on his sword for the good of America.
