Deja-Vu

Oh boy. Michael Moore did it this time! His recent article on the Huffington Post got my blood boiling. Or really, made me very very sad. Yes folks, it's the "abortion thing" again. You know-- the LEGAL procedure that is suddenly unavailable to women, in ever increasing and scary numbers. Yes folks, in the "Land of the Free".

I can't take credit for the title of this Hub, by the way. That was a reference used by Howard Stern many years ago. Stern, another American whose freedoms were treated lightly and spuriously by the Christian Right; who rigidly control a large part of our government. Yes folks, in this country of "Separation of Church and State"! Do you see where I am going with this? Just wait. You won't believe it.

Here is what our illustrious freedom-loving officials are doing with OUR rights and the laws of OUR land:

"Bart Stupak is threatening to derail it (the healthcare bill) because he wants to make sure that no woman who buys her own insurance with her own money is able to have a medically-insured abortion. We're not talkin' about federally-funded abortions -- those were stupidly outlawed long ago. Bart Stupak doesn't like that the Democrats' bill doesn't prohibit private insurance programs, set up for those whose employers don't provide it, from providing abortion coverage if they get any federal funding -- even to an individual woman paying without any government help. That's it."--Michael Moore

Taxation Without Representation

Her OWN insurance with her OWN money! Now mind you--these are the SAME people who will defend Israel's right to blow up little babies in Gaza, or shower innocent civilians with white phosphorous, or carpet-bomb a country, or send targeted attacks from a computer in Virginia. The self-same people don't want a woman to stop a pregnancy from happening; so a human being is spared being born into a world of poverty, fear and suffering. Because, as you know, it is also these same officials who never want to spend a single tax dollar on the poor! That is THEIR money and don't you forget it.

Excuse me if I don't take seriously your claim of following Jesus. Excuse me if I think you are just as repressive as the Taliban. You just couch it in other terms don't you? You couch it in standing up for the rights of the Zygote. Unbelievable. And wrong.

Female Nostradamus

Whenever this issue comes up, it always reminds me of a book I read years ago. It's called The Handmaid's Tale, and is written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood. When I first read this book, I felt "this is happening here!" In my own country. See if you don't agree:

"Beginning with a staged terrorist attack killing the President and ousting Congressblamed on Muslim terrorists, a movement calling itself the "Sons of Jacob" launched a revolution under the pretext of restoring order, suspending the US Constitution. Given electronic banking they were quickly able to freeze the assets of all women and other undesirables in the country, stripping their rights away. The new theocratic military dictatorship, styled "The Republic of Gilead", moved quickly to consolidate its power and reorganize society along a new militarized, hierarchical, compulsorily-Christian regime of Old Testament-inspired social and religious orthodoxy among its newly-created social classes."

Eeri, huh? And scary too! It is quite possible that this IS happening in our country 2010. There has undeniably been a tremendous erosion of female reproductive rights in the past 20 years...rights that were fought so hard for! Women went to jail, starved themselves, lost their families to secure this right. Where I live, there is no accesss to abortion whatsoever. Providers have been scared off, or run out of town by the nasty Viperish Operation Rescue thugs.

Punished For Not Stoning A Fellow Handmaid To Death

Extremism, complacency and trauma

Extremism, complacency and trauma

The New Inquisition

You can also visit a "church" with a carnival atmosphere, go inside and see a real aborted fetus. Sorry they don't also make available pictures of the little babies in Iraq born to mothers who have been subjected to depleted uranium....that is heartbreaking to see.

Make no mistake about it, this current political climate is a war zone. It's a war for our freedoms and ability to afford a decent life against the forces of religion and money. If you can't feel it, it's because you are not on the targetted end of this so-called Democracy. The view from here is very scary indeed. And harsh. It's no Liberty and Justice for women, it's back to the stone ages.

“How many days until my next ban?”

Ahhhhhhhh. Another anti Trumper silenced. Well well.

Hey…maga women can call people “stupid”, and “special needs”, and not get a ban.

Maga men can talk about how stupid liberals are and not be reprimanded, or told to “tone it down”.

And liberals and anti Trumpers are being silenced at an alarming pace.

Maybe you can tell me where it says, “don’t speak out in forums unless you’re a rightwinger.”

Remember they said publicly, “we have ways of getting rid of people like you.”

“Is this the one you emailed me about and said not to engage with?”

….and banning affects your standing and income here. “Engaging will make your experience more successful”.

So, which maga chicks do all the banning, and why does hubpages let them?

I reported the one who called a member stupid. Not only was she not banned, but I was banned from reporting!

That sound like equal treatment to you?

Sounds like discrimination to me.

And they go strong after the effective ones. Everyone on forums must placate maga, then “we all can get along”.

As they eviscerate democrats on a daily basis.

Discrimination.

“The Taliban wants to control women’s minds, bodies, and behavior.

Sound familiar?“

********

Familiar? Are we in Afghanistan? Let’s see……employers get to decide if they want me to have birth control. They are trying to outlaw it, and yet I must pay for viagra!

Men are not forced to have vasectomies, even though it would end unwanted pregnancies.

If it really was about abortion, they would force vasectomies, and protest Israel.

They do neither.

It’s about control, and usurping woman power: men can’t create life, so they destroy women.

Won’t work. It’s moms turn to be god now. Dads got to take a back seat for another 26,000 years. Phew! Let’s party!

Woman haters, allowed to fester. Why? Man-god makes men god. These murderous kooks need their guns taken away. Imo

“As Jessica Glenza wrote in The Guardian earlier this week, the extreme anti-choice group Defy Tyrants—whose leaders were signatories of a statement saying the killing of abortion providers should be classified as "justifiable homicide"—has had success in at least three states with pushing lawmakers to introduce bills that would charge women with murder if they obtain abortion care.

According to the pro-choice group Abortion Access Front, at least 15 influential anti-choice leaders participated in the violent attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

"Fundamentally they are about democracy—they are anti-democratic zealots, this is not just about abortion at all," Kumar told The Guardian.”

Much like hubpages forums, you can be banned for being liberal.

So, why complain about anything? This is cancel culture, political correctness, discrimination all rolled into one.

But as long as you’re doing it, it’s ok.

What a load of manure!

I guess it never occurred to these geniuses that liberals like going to college.

Conservatives insult higher learning. They mock “pointy headed intellectuals in their ivory towers”......is it any wonder cons don’t go on to higher learning?

Unless it’s religious school, where gays, libs, those not affiliated with your faith are not allowed.

I mean, can you even SEE the hypocrisy?

I know you can’t!

You can’t see anything at all.

Biden has 63% favorability overall.

Hubpages forums are 99% anti Biden.

Biden has 71% approval on how he’s handling Covid.

Hubpages forum is full of anti vaxx conspiracies, and “Covid is a hoax” people.

So really, what gives? Why is there such a nest of far rightwingers and their allies here, and woeful lack of opposing views?

I think it’s by design. And I think someone should look in to it. I think there is a group of far righters who rule. Mostly women. But some men, too.

And they get the moderators do their bidding......allowing them to insult and malign, making sure their detractors go away.

How else do you explain it? It is so off course with reality.

It’s like when talk radio got taken over by the far right.....people used to say, “Oh, people just like it better, that’s all”.

Bull!

I live in a blue state! We do not like far right talk better! That also, was by design.

As Bannon the Leninist said, “flood the zone with bullshit.”

And they have.

What’s this about a “Fellowship”, too? Is a that what they call themselves?

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on May 12, 2021:

You are not noble thinkers. You care about money and forcing others to bow to your man-god.

USC used to be free to California residents. It was the beacon of educational excellence.

I believe every state used to offer college free for residents.

Now, it takes 30 years to pay back college loans.

Which is better?

Social Security is a loan program. But republicans want the bank to become the middle man.....charge you for getting your money back.

Seriously? Give me a break.

And soon we will be talking about how we used to be able to read stories for free on the internet.....

It is fast becoming difficult to read anything other than opinion.

What ever happened to PUBLIC utilities?

First we have to pay to use the internet......now we have to pay to read information, too.

I get that we always have paid for newspapers and magazines, so it follows they want us to pay for their stories.........but we already pay for use of the internet! Shouldn’t everything else be factored in?

Where is public service anymore? They are PUBLIC airwaves. And it irks me to have to pay for every single newspaper article that comes out!

The Hopi prophecy is real. We will destroy everything before we find out “you can’t eat money”.

“Joined 12 minutes ago from Italy”

Sigh. Dont you have enough far righters in here? It’s like 12 to 1 now. Plus a fake liberal.

What is going on? Is this America, where a Biden won handily?

Very suspect hp.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on May 08, 2021:

“Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) pushed the "Big Lie" that Trump won the 2020 election during a Friday evening rally at a Florida retirement community with Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).

"God bless you guys," Greene said.

"Alright, I just got to check something, I just want to make sure I'm the right place," she said. "Tell me, who is your president?"

"Trump!" the crowd roared in response as Greene pumped a fist in the air.

"That's my president, too," she told them. "I just want to be sure I'm with friends and family, not with antifa or BLM or Democrat (sic) socialists.

"Did anyone in here vote for Joe Biden? Do you guys really think he won?" she ask as the crowd shouting "no" despite the fact Joe Biden did, in fact, win.”

********

So what is to be done about this? She is obviously stoking hate and division.....is this what her people are paying her to do? That’s what they voted for?

I say it’s just a matter of time before someone does someone harm, because of it.

How many times do we need to watch the same movie? Change the dam channel. Shut her off.

This is acceptable to you....

“The left is the modern version of the KKK. Hunting down those who they perceive as different, tarring and feathering them and then parading them around to the cheers of their members. Trying to lynch their reputation and working to castrate any person of color who deigns to disagree with their dogma.

I remember the democratic KKK in the south. They wrapped their racism in religion. The modern religion of the left is no different from the attempts to indoctrinate the young to support the beliefs of the democrats KKK back then.

They are a plague on decent society just as they were in the past.“

******

Also, calling people anti semites is acceptable to you.

Well, you had better get busy......lecturing all those black and Jewish Americans who voted for the KKK.

Good luck.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on February 14, 2021:

“No, the history books will be clear about those who coddled and engendered Trump’s madness in the name of political power. And in the end, he made sure that Trump would face no penalty or justice for whipping up a storm of white supremacist anger that attacked the U.S. Capitol and killed a police officer. As his one-time challenger Charles Booker noted Saturday, “Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul would have voted differently if the people who stormed the Capitol looked like me.”

“He is someone who recovered from his addiction to cocaine. Something wrong with that?”

Ask Don Jr.. He mocks Hunter Biden for it. And looks to me like Junior is still using.

But we all know how it goes with the rightwing. “If you white, you all right”, and “everything is ok if I do it, it’s only a crime for you”

Hence, 6 years of “lock her up”, and total indifference to a violent insurrection.

You can bet, if the storming of the capitol were Muslims or BLM, they would be calling for heads to roll.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on February 08, 2021:

A charter school in Utah was going to allow parents to opt out of black history month curriculum.....

And a guy on twitter says,

“As a graduate of the Utah public school system I had to take multiple, required "Utah History" classes that were largely just explanations of Mormonism written by Mormons in a thinly veiled attempt to convert non-Mormons.

Wonder why I couldn't opt out of those.”

*******

The school has since put the curriculum back....but it made me think of this:

Tom Arnold says the Mormons who run MGM are very racist. And, they have the power to release those Apprentice tapes of Trump being racist and misogynist in a very bad way.

But they won’t. And he says they’re re also protecting Mark Burnett, because he has so much power and is very good friends with Trump.

Seems like all this talk of “Hollywood elites” is directed at the wrong people.....just like the paedophile accusations.....

Trump is calling out the National Guard to shoot looters.

Create a situation you knew would allow you to kill black people. Imo.

Did you know, he was on stage with Trump at one of his rallies?

The skeptics are claiming the video of the incident doesn't fit the narrative.

Now we have Trump:

“when the looting starts, the shooting starts.“

What did you want people to do when they see another murder like that?

And you can bet, the agitprop actors are out there encouraging looting.

This is what strong men do.....like China now taking over Hong Kong, Duterte outright shooting addicts in the street, and Trump telling the national guard to shoot people.

While many people of faith......it’s not only Christians, but Muslims, too, right? Cannot accept a gay man as president, look at this:

"We cannot in good conscience allow Mayor Pete to become the nominee without demanding that he address the needs and concerns of the broader Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA) communities," the letter said.

"While many see different issues in silos, we are clear that LGBTQIA people are directly and disproportionately impacted by police violence, incarceration, unaffordable healthcare, homelessness, deportation, and economic inequality among other things."

Very interesting to me is .......do people care about the rights of these people, or do they deny they even have rights, based on their religion?

“President Tump did what he did as a private citizen. Bill Clinton did what he did as a public servant. He raped and sexually assaulted women as a governor and president.”

So rape and sexual assault is ok as long as it’s done in the private sector?

So us wanting to know if we are electing a rapist and sexual assaulter has no bearing?

Btw, I don’t recall any trial and conviction for rape.

And the sexual assault allegations did not lead to any charges, either.

Am I to assume it’s ok for me to call Trump a rapist and sexual assaulter, due to the allegations.....and a criminal court case filed?

You got it, bro.

From now on he’s the impeached rapist and sexual assaulter.

“A Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq and was deported to El Salvador this week said he would fight for America again and hopes his country would not turn its back on him as he grapples with life in a dangerous country he has not known since he was three years old.

Jose Segovia Benitez, 38, told NBC News Friday that he felt very unsafe and his spirit was “at its tipping point” as he deals with life in El Salvador, a country where he feels like a complete foreigner.

“I love America. I would fight for it again. I won’t turn my back on it. I really need it not to have its back turned to me,” he said.”

NAZIS

“During the Nazi era, roughly 300,000 additional Jewish refugees could have gained entry to the U.S. without exceeding the nation’s existing quotas.

The primary mechanism that kept them out: the immigration law’s “likely to become a public charge” clause. Consular officials with the authority to issue visas denied them to everyone they deemed incapable of supporting themselves in the U.S.

The Trump administration is now resurrecting “the public charge” clause as a way to limit legal immigration without changing immigration law. On Aug. 12, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced new regulations that will deny admission to those unable to prove under tough new standards that they won’t claim government benefits.

As someone who has studied European Jews’ attempts to escape Nazi persecution and immigrate to the U.S., the administration’s evocation of the public charge clause is chilling.“

American republicans impeached a democratic president for lying about an affair, and continue to call him a rapist, based on accusations alone.

American republicans are refusing to hold hearings on a republican president for obstruction of justice. Refusing to consider the accusations of rape against him.

The republican Supreme Court says it’s fine to gerrymander districts in a partisan fashion.

1 trump party justice has been accused of sexual harassment, one of attempted rape.

Before he was elected, trump bragged about using women like a piece of meat.

And you say get over it, move on?

How about we elect a woman who brags about grabbing men by the balls?

How about we say men must be forced to have vasectomies to avoid abortion?

How about we pray, “our mother, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.”

Honest question......who are these right wingers on hubpages, who support this stuff?

Straight pride march:

“Now questions have been raised over the past political activities of the trio of men behind the group, John Hugo, Mark Sahady and Chris Bartley.

Mr Sahady and Mr Bartley are both heavily associated with Resist Marxism – a loose ultra-conservative group found to have links to white supremacist organisations – while Mr Hugo ran, unsuccessfully, for congress in 2018 with an endorsement from the same group.

Mr Sahady is also reported to have organised a right-wing Free Speech Rally and Rally for the Republic, both in Boston, in the aftermath of the infamous Unite the Right march in Virginia, in August 2017, during which a counter-protester was killed.

Attendees at both Mr Sahady’s events were vastly outnumbered by counter-protestors.

Another rally the software engineer led in Providence, in Rhode Island, attracted just a few dozen people – some wearing masks in an apparent bid to hide their identity.

He is also reported to have marched with members of far-right groups Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys in Portland in June 2018 – an event which descended into such violence police in the city officially labelled it a riot.

And in January this year, he and other Resist Marxism associates led a counter-protest against the Boston Women’s March, which descended into a fracas, reports David Neiwert, author of Alt America and a long-time observer of the US right.“
