Out­rage over black­face, si­lence over killing ba­bies

The Washington Times Weekly - - Commentary - BY CHARLES HURT

Turns out, killing ba­bies is not so pop­u­lar. What is truly amaz­ing is how many Vir­ginia Demo­crat politi­cians had to touch that hot stove be­fore they got the mes­sage that even main­stream Demo­crat vot­ers do not ap­prove — no, they are ap­palled, aghast and un­be­liev­ing — at the mere no­tion of an elec­tive abor­tion dur­ing de­liv­ery.

It’s be­tween, you know, the mother and her “doc­tor,” Death Squad politi­cians tell us.

For years, we have been chided for talk­ing openly about fear­ing the Oba­macare “Death Pan­els” that would reign af­ter the gov­ern­ment takes over ev­ery last cor­ner of our health care sys­tem.

Turns out that not only are the Death Pan­els real, they’re not just for old peo­ple and ex­pen­sive sick peo­ple. Demo­crat politi­cians want them for new­borns, too.

“The in­fant would be kept com­fort­able,” the Grand Wizard of Death Squads, Vir­ginia Gov. Ralph Northam, tells us in chill­ingly an­ti­sep­tic tones.

Lis­ten­ing to Dr. Death Northam dis­cuss the fi­nal so­lu­tion for trou­ble­some, col­icky or, per­haps, wrong-gen­dered ba­bies is a lit­tle like lis­ten­ing to Han­ni­bal Lecter make ten­der pil­low talk be­fore he rapes a woman, skins her and eats her medulla ob­lon­gata. Or Buf­falo Bill give skin mois­tur­izer tips. “It rubs the lo­tion on its skin or else it gets the hose again!”

Per­haps Dr. Death should get him­self one of those hoods ex­e­cu­tion­ers have al­ways been so fond of through­out the dark­est of ages. It could even be pointy. I bet it comes in white, with con­ve­nient, yet fash­ion­able, lit­tle eye holes.

Vir­ginia House Del­e­gate Kathy Tran in­tro­duced the leg­is­la­tion that, she ad­mit­ted, would le­gal­ize “abor­tion” dur­ing ac­tual la­bor. Among the rest of civ­i­liza­tion, this is called “in­fan­ti­cide.” Or, more plainly, “mur­der.”

But, hey, ac­cord­ing to Death Squad Grand Wizard Ralph Northam, the baby will be kept “com­fort­able” while wait­ing for his or her death row con­vic­tion. You know, toss “it” onto a ta­ble un­der­neath one of those french fry lamps.

If that is not Life, Lib­erty and Pur­suit of Hap­pi­ness, then what is?

The sin­gle most as­ton­ish­ing rev­e­la­tion about the whole sor­did mess — the only fact that ev­ery­one should re­mem­ber from this sad, tragic chap­ter in Vir­ginia his­tory is this: Del. Tran’s le­gal­ized baby mur­der bill gar­nered 22 liv­ing hu­mans serv­ing in the Vir­ginia House of Del­e­gates to co-spon­sor her leg­is­la­tion. Pre­sum­ably, many of those co-spon­sors of death even have chil­dren of their own.

All of them are Democrats. One of those co-spon­sors has since with­drawn her sup­port claim­ing she had not read the leg­is­la­tion and did not re­al­ize it le­gal­ized in­fan­ti­cide.

The sec­ond most as­ton­ish­ing rev­e­la­tion out of this whole sick fi­asco was the re­ac­tion from Demo­crat Party lead­ers in Wash­ing­ton and around the coun­try.

To­tal si­lence. Not a shud­der of re­morse or a twinge of rage.

In­deed, the Demo­crat Party has mor­phed into the Party of Death. Specif­i­cally, the Party of Killing Chil­dren. All other pri­or­i­ties that once de­fined the Demo­crat Party have given way to this sin­gu­lar wor­ship of abor­tion.

And then, the cir­cus be­gan. Some­body dug up an old year­book from Dr. Death Northam’s med­i­cal school in which he fea­tured a photograph of some­body dressed up in black­face and some­body else dressed in a Ku Klux Klan hood.

Democrats, trig­ger the re­morse and rage! Sud­denly ev­ery Demo­crat from Cal­i­for­nia to New York — where thirdtrimester in­fan­ti­cide is al­ready le­gal — wanted Ralph Northam’s scalp on a pike. Even Del­e­gate Kathy Tran — the au­thor of Dr. Death’s Fi­nal So­lu­tion for Trou­ble­some Ba­bies — has called on the Northam to re­sign.

“I stand with my friends in the Vir­ginia Leg­isla­tive Black Cau­cus and Vir­ginia House Demo­cratic Cau­cus in call­ing for Gov­er­nor Northam to re­sign,” Del. Tran’s of­fice said in a press re­lease.

“I will con­tinue the hard work of build­ing a wel­com­ing and inclusive Vir­ginia.”

Yes, wel­come to Vir­ginia, where we will keep you “com­fort­able.” But, mean­while, also don’t for­get: It rubs the lo­tion on its skin or else it gets the hose again! Con­tact Charles Hurt at [email protected]­ing­ton­times.com or on Twit­ter @charleshurt.
