I read the piece in italics below HERE, and saw it in many other places, and it really got me wondering, particularly when Howie Kurtz on MediaBuzz repeated the rhetoric yesterday:
“While many Republican presidential candidates have condemned the shooting at a ColoradoPlanned Parenthood clinic, Planned Parenthood today accused some of those same GOP candidates of contributing to the creation of a “toxic environment” that provoked the attack.
“It is offensive and outrageous that some politicians are now claiming this tragedy has nothing to do with the toxic environment they helped create,” Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said in a statement released today.
Laguens singles out Donald Trump and Carly Fiorina by name, accusing them of “using this tragedy to repeat false claims about Planned Parenthood,” and says it’s not enough to denounce the tragedy without also stopping their rhetoric against the organization.
“One of the lessons of this awful tragedy is that words matter, and hateful rhetoric fuels violence,” Laguens said. “It’s not enough to denounce the tragedy without also denouncing the poisonous rhetoric that fueled it. Instead, some politicians are continuing to stoke it, which is unconscionable.””
Z: See, the problem with the rhetoric is that it’s true. There is no “toxic environment,” in my opinion, that Planned Parenthood hasn’t created itself. How much more ‘toxic’ can you get than being an apparently for-profit abortion mill that tax payers hugely against abortion are helping support? How much more toxic can it get to repeat that you’re doing mammograms when many PP clinics haven’t the equipment? How much more “toxic” can it be to continually lie?
I was about to link the many videos showing various Planned Parenthood representatives sipping wine and talking about harvesting babies for parts, describing how they do it gingerly so’s not to destroy any parts that get a high price, etc. I don’t think I need to as the whole country’s seen those. Yet, it’s the Republicans who created a toxic environment?
Tell me your thoughts; I believe this is one of the most telling, most insidious yet most obvious media/liberal lies going. Even leftwing commenters at our blogs are still saying “the videos were edited” when it’s pretty tough to edit one sentence after another which isn’t only audio but VISUAL…an arm bringing a wine glass to one’s lips can’t be cut and pasted or it looks jerky…audio’s easy to edit; visual is not…it’s ridiculous to even suggest it, actually, but, somehow, it works with liberals and other uninformed folks.
Yet, I’ve barely seen an article like mine asking how anybody could get away with blaming Republicans for a ‘toxic environment’ when all they’ve done is tell the truth. Actually, I’ve never seen an article like that but I assume they exist somewhere on the Conservative, truthful blogosphere?
Just saw this so I thought I’d add it to the post: Look at THIS WRITER’S TAKE on this situation with Planned Parenthood….“Others, however, sought to draw a connection between the fiery language used against Planned Parenthood and the potential for violence.” “Fiery language”??? Exposing killing babies for parts for sale is “fiery language?” The article is quite a piece of bias….amazing. We can’t say we think that’s wrong without causing VIOLENCE? Now we can’t speak up at ALL? What is WRONG to expose something half of America doesn’t approve of? MORE than half, lots of Democrats aren’t pro choice, either….Catholics, in particular…
I think this story, that the media and the rest of the Dems think it’s “toxic” and “fiery” that caused a mad man to kill innocent people is astonishing….that it’s “toxic” and “fiery” to tell the truth is even worse.
