Cuomo Gets His Abortion Dream . . . While Culture Of Death Shrieks For Catholic Students’ Blood

January 27, 2019 Frontpage No Comments


Radical New York pro-abortionist Gov. Andrew Cuomo used Manhattan’s One World Trade Center as a symbolic towering torch for national abortion freedom shortly after pro-life Kentucky teenagers were targeted for murderous rage from raving left-wingers looking for any excuse to rip apart Catholic defenders of preborn babies who also admired President Trump.
Terrorist fanatics had destroyed Manhattan’s Twin Towers in 2001 with hijacked jetliners. Whoever could have thought that the soaring symbol of freedom constructed to replace them would be used by Cuomo as 2019 began with its spire lit in pussycat pink to hail still more massive slaughter by permissive abortion?
Blogger Thomas Peters tweeted on January 23 that the sharp spire “looks just like the needle that is used to supply the lethal injection to the living unborn child.”
New York’s Democrat-dominated legislature had just approved the blood-drenched Reproductive Health Act long sought by Cuomo, who quickly signed it and ordered pink lighting at other locations, too — the depraved Cuomo’s ghastly aim being to “celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”
Perhaps the gateway to Hell is brightly lighted, too, starting in pink at the top of the stairs, then deepening to red then boiling blackness in which the Underworld’s governor down there waits to crushingly embrace his New York counterpart to become his little garbage-toting slave.
Shortly before Cuomo’s signing, some MAGA cap-wearing students from Covington Catholic High School, ready to bus back home after joining in the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., had been craftily entrapped in a propaganda plot that dominant leftist media gobbled down with relish then vomited out internationally.
Year after year, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers join to witness for the preborn in one of the world’s media capitals but generally are ignored by reporters. However, dominant media quickly made one MAGA-capped Catholic teen into an internationally denounced monster because he falsely was accused of curdled prejudice against an elderly Native American.
Leftists who would oppose capital punishment for the most depraved convicted criminal quickly were tweeting out threats of torture and death not only for the innocent teen but also for his classmates and even their families.
A Hollywood producer venomously tweeted that the students should “go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.” This was illustrated with a woodchipper gushing out swirls of blood. The producer later apologized and said, “I would throw my phone into the ocean before doing that again.”
However, in the direction this society is being shoved, the already-born innocent will be shredded (as the preborn already are) before there’s time to recover sobriety. And then sobriety will succumb beyond recovery.
It might seem hard to decide which of dominant media deserves the Doubled Down Golden Turd award for most disgraceful reporting of the incident, but the viciously clownish Washington Post definitely should be in the running. There really are Killer Clowns.
The fact that some Catholic dioceses’ spokesmen were quick to condemn the Covington kids without knowing the facts, although years have gone by while strongly pro-abortion Catholic politicians roam free as bishops decline to rebuke them by name, helps illustrate how we’ve got where we are.
Given other recent instances of powerful national Democrat politicians openly suggesting that faithful Catholics are unfit for public life, one can feel chills from the Germany of the 1930s, which created its own pseudo-science about who was undeserving of protection and the presumption of innocence. Does the recent Democrat trampling of Brett Kavanaugh ring a little bell?
The German victims weren’t originally Jews but pitiful unfortunates whom the establishment wanted to relieve of what it considered their miserable existences. Once the unwanted were deemed deserving of death, that treatment was extended to the actively hated, too.
Kristallnacht was a German night of pogrom in 1938 that powerfully led toward the death camps for Jews. Although U.S. Catholics already born now aren’t at that point of peril, all preborn babies in the nation have been since 1973, and the sick, squealing ecstasy of Andrew Cuomo’s acolytes in New York over even worse baby slaughter should make the land tremble.
As news of the vile assault on the Covington teenagers was just beginning, The Wanderer asked a veteran conservative columnist if he saw the establishment starting to put Christians on the path toward their own Kristallnacht.
The columnist, Quin Hillyer, replied: “This isn’t totalitarianism yet, and it isn’t deadly. But the trend is clear: The predominant media and political culture are horribly bigoted against people of traditional faith, and their bigotry is having increasingly serious consequences. They need to be countered with every bit of publicity and organization traditionalists can muster.”
The Wanderer also posed the question to conservative Republican political consultant Constantin Querard. He replied:
“No, not Kristallnacht, just more hypocrisy and double standards where attacking Christians is totally okay for liberals and the media. And more rush to judgment because, as The View co-host Joy Behar says, they’re ‘desperate to get rid of Trump in 2020.’
“It is getting embarrassing for the media, though,” Querard added, “so we may start to see more care taken before they jump all over stories. We hope so, in any case.”
Although pro-lifers may knock fruitlessly on media doors with their message until their hands are worn to the bone, the first whiff of potential embarrassment to them gets some media folk sniffing energetically as if inhaling longed-for marijuana fumes.
Left-wing Native American activist Nathan Phillips portrayed himself as a Vietnam veteran and innocent peacemaker at the Lincoln Memorial who was surrounded, trapped, and scared by racist, anti-abortion, pro-Trump young Kentucky troublemakers chanting to “build the wall.” (He ambiguously called himself a “Vietnam times veteran” in a CNN interview and major media and celebrities then began labeling him as a Vietnam vet.)
Each claim was phony, but the narrative was too good to doubt for dominant media, who flashed it around the world.
Young Covington Catholic Nick Sandmann’s face had only been in his own mirror that morning when he shaved, if he’s old enough to shave, but by the evening his image was posted at news sites in country after country as a reprehensible, typical Catholic thug.
Phillips even claimed that he had to protect a few members of a foul-mouthed cult called the Black Hebrew Israelites who were on hand from becoming the “prey” of the Catholic “beast.”
However, reporter Robby Soave was among the first to make a powerful refutation of this whole media scam. In part, Soave posted the afternoon of January 20:
“Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites, who were lurking nearby.”
If Phillips intended to be a peacemaker among the Catholic beasts, he did it strangely indeed by walking freely right into their midst with no comprehensible explanation, only chanting and banging his drum right up in Sandmann’s face for a prolonged period.
At least some of the students at first thought Phillips was sympathetic to their having suffered the slurs of the Black Hebrew Israelites, but then began to voice their uncertainty on what was happening. Sandmann remained calm and unspeaking despite Phillips’ banging away, which hostile media jumped to explain was a flaunting of young white privilege or whatever.
The students only had been waiting to ride the bus back home to Kentucky, but probably will look at bus stops in a different way forever after. Sort of like your being wary of ever ordering pizza again if you’d started to take a bite of a slice and an adult octopus sprang out of the tomato sauce.
Meanwhile, self-coronated hero Phillips and his pals wandered over to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, where they reportedly attempted to disrupt an evening Mass with drumming and chanting.
On January 23 The American Conservative’s Rod Dreher, another early whistleblower against dominant media’s Covington tales, cited a Catholic News Agency story saying Phillips read a statement on the basilica steps attacking the Catholic Church’s “genocide” and demanding “that the students of Covington Catholic High School be reprimanded not just by their school officials but, as seniors, by their upcoming universities.”
As for the radical New York abortion law that finally sprang forth after long years of bishops fearing to denounce by name and excommunicate blood-lusting politicians, Catholic News Service reported that it allows non-physicians to do abortions, and “also repeals protections for accidental live births and disallows criminal charges for illegal abortions, such as when a perpetrator seeks to abort their partner’s child through drugs or physical violence.”

The Incredible Pelosi

While bishops may have been cowering, Catholic pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows what she can get away with these days.
After open-borders Pelosi partly shut down the government by refusing to come to any agreement with President Trump over vital funding for border security, the incredible Pelosi actually said Trump wouldn’t be allowed to give his annual State of the Union speech in the House chamber until the government reopens.
Imagine that! We hear plenty of talk about the alleged Trump dictatorship, but it’s this dictatorial California Democrat who grinds government to a halt then censors where the president may speak.
It’s almost impossible even to conceive of, say, a House Republican speaker telling President Barack Obama he dare not enter the House to deliver his annual address. But that’s the difference between diffident Republicans always fearing they might offend someone, and immoral, power-mad Democrats who just don’t give a big darn.
If only the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops threw around one-quarter of Pelosi’s clout, she would have been shamed and excommunicated long ago. But bishops aren’t serious about opposing Democrat degeneracy, at least not until it’s too late. Just ask Andy “the Smirk” Cuomo.
