Way back in the days when I thought the Republican party was more evil than the Democrats, instead of just more stupid, the ‘Thuglicans had a convention here in Houston.
Abortion was on the agenda, at least as far as the Demons were concerned. I have no idea what the Thugs actually talked about.
There were mass protests at
abortion women’s health clinics all over town.
I stood on the clinic side of the line, holding back those who wanted to block the entrances against women trying to enter.
In my mind, I was protesting government interference in women’s lives. I still feel that way, although it’s not my plan to argue the point in this post.
But now I am beginning to understand that pro-choice forces really are pro-abortion. They are anti-life. Not pro-women, but anti-male, too, if it comes to that. Liberty has nothing to do with it.
When the liberal/socialist blinders come off, the world changes. Remember the movie Pleasantville, which starts out in black and white, and then the citizens learn to see color? That’s what I’m living through right now, except it’s no fun at all, because so many of the colors that have been splashed around are so profoundly ugly. Maybe a better example is They Live, where the protagonist obtains a pair of sunglasses that allows him to see his leaders for the alien monsters they are.
These days, I wouldn’t stand on either side of the line. The whole conversation is corrupt and corrupting.
I am so disgusted, so screamingly angry, so ashamed.
