“The fat Russian agent was cornering all the foreign refugees in turn and explaining plausibly that this whole affair was an Anarchist plot. I watched him with some interest, for it was the first time that I had seen a person whose profession was telling lies — unless one counts journalists.”
–George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia (1938)
A Man With A Memory Looks at Less Than Two Weeks Ago
Less than two weeks ago a little nine-year-old girl was raped and murdered by a repeat sex offender.
Her father, obviously a regular working man, choked back his tears and begged the country to PLEASE, at long last, get these perverts off the streets before more little girls were killed.
It was national news less than two weeks ago.
The man said he was going to the state capitol to BEG the legislators to do something about these child molesters. The whole country was with him. Geraldo Rivera was interviewing him and said he would be there, too.
But then the right-to-life bureaucracy got itself a big, juicy cause. A brain-dead woman was ordered off of life support. They marched and picketed and grabbed all the publicity.
I complained in my blog that this big, juicy right-to-life story was going to hog all the publicity thousands of molested children and thousands more children who are going to be molested and murdered desperately needed.
I pointed out that, thanks to the pro-life industry, thousands more children will have their lives ruined and many will be murdered before anything is done. This week hundreds of children will be molested. But the pro-life industry can’t be bothered with that.
Have you heard anything about that murdered little girl on the news since right-to-life hogged all the coverage?

The Pope’s Selective Morality
The Pope had nothing to say about repeat child molesters, except that he wants to protect them from the death penalty.
After all, this is the same Pope who refuses to take action against all the bishops who caused thousands of little boys to be raped by moving boy-raping priests around. Like the professional pro-life movement, what bothers him is what it is fashionable to care about.
The Pope has never said a word about child molesters except that they should not get the death penalty. He has never apologized at all for the decades in which his Church took the fashionable line that boy-raping priests should be “rehabilitated.”
But when this nice juicy case of the brain-dead woman came up, the Pope had plenty to say. He said that life is infinitely precious. Like the pro-life movement in general, the Pope started off saying life is endlessly precious. No matter how ruinous to a family it may be, a person should be kept on life support forever.
Life is infinitely precious, they all said. Pain is not important. Even if a person is crippled from the neck down and desperately wants to die, he shouldn’t be allowed to.
But that was DAYS ago. Nobody remembers them saying that.
Now suddenly pain is everything. They are saying Schiavo is dying in agony, and that is why she should be put back on life support.
Oh, there was another line they used. They said that medicine should not intervene when it comes to ending a human life. Of course, if it were not for medical “interference” Schiavo would have died years ago.
But who cares? It all sounds good, it all sounds SO nice.
And it is making piles of money for the pro-life bureaucracy.

The ONLY Anti-Liberal Who Will Offend Them
I am the only anti-liberal who will offend other anti-liberals by having a memory and a non-selective conscience.
Nobody but Bob Whitaker is going to raise hell about the pro-life movement going psychopathic.
The media used to laugh at pro-lifers. By now they have been kicked in the teeth enough to learn how powerful it is. The media is a bunch of cowards. They beat their chests about how bravely they back fashionable causes, but they instantly coward-out when the object of their cowardly attacks actually bites back.
Years ago, the Pope took a brave stand against Communism when it was not fashionable to do so. But the senile old man he has become is defending fashionable causes only.
I have a memory. I will never forget the brave man Pope John Paul once was. But that is because I have a memory.
I will never forget the heroism of the early pro-lifers before the professionals turned the movement into something monomaniacal and psychopathic. They were the first anti-liberals to back the national media down.
But that is not how history will remember this Pope or the pro-life movement.
I have a memory. History doesn’t.
