Quotes of the Day on the MSM blackout of Kermit #Gosnell trial coverage

Posted by: ST on April 11, 2013 at 5:57 pm

First up, pro-life Democrat Kirsten Powers – from a must-read in the USA Today:

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?

It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.


Let me state the obvious. This should be front page news. When Rush Limbaugh attacked Sandra Fluke, there was non-stop media hysteria. The venerable NBC Nightly News’ Brian Williams intoned, “A firestorm of outrage from women after a crude tirade from Rush Limbaugh,” as he teased a segment on the brouhaha. Yet, accusations of babies having their heads severed — a major human rights story if there ever was one — doesn’t make the cut.

You don’t have to oppose abortion rights to find late-term abortion abhorrent or to find the Gosnell trial eminently newsworthy. This is not about being “pro-choice” or “pro-life.” It’s about basic human rights.

The deafening silence of too much of the media, once a force for justice in America, is a disgrace.

Indeed.  My only quibble with what she wrote is that this is indeed about being “pro-choice or pro-life.”  She’s right in that it shouldn’t matter what “side” you are on in this debate in order to be outraged and sickened by “Doctor” Gosnell’s born babies murder spree, but the whole reason why the national MSM and most pro-aborts in America are staying silent on this trial is specifically because it brings to the forefront the inhumane procedures used in the practice of their number one line-in-the-sand- issue: abortion.  There’s no way to smooth over the terminology, no way to play typical “pro-choice” word games in an attempt to whitewash what happened.  There’s also simply no way possible that Gosnell’s grossly extreme (understatement) and criminal actions outside of the womb can be separated from discussion of what happens inside the womb during a “safe, legal” abortion procedure.  As I asked last night, and still haven’t gotten an answer to today from “feminists”, what exactly is the “humane” way to abort an unborn child? Why is it that the “difference” in Gosnell and other abortionists methods – in that what he did was outside the womb – the only thing we “should be” discussing, according to the few “feminists” willing to discuss the issue?

“Feminists” and other left wing pro-aborts can’t answer these questions honestly without making complete and utter fools of themselves – not to mention without exposing their extreme callousness towards the unborn so as to make it unquestionable, as my friend Foolish Reporter explains with my other candidate for QOTD:

Powers question as to why there’s no outrage from the leftist ranks of the perpetually outraged can be summed up pretty easily, actually. David Horovitz probably said it best, way back in 1998, even,  in his book “Radical Son”:

The Left could not look inward and it could not look back.


The Left, and their ideological cronies in the mainstream media, can’t countenance Gosnell because then they’d truly be forced to look inward. To make a judgment on their values that have lead them to this place, now, where they will *NOT* denounce the murder of an infant outside of the womb. Where a baby is “punishment”, instead of the gift of life that most of us know it to be.

And it truly is unfortunate that those who claim to fight for those who are “powerless” or “voiceless” seem completely disinterested in making sure the children murdered by Gosnell, and the women as well, are given a voice in death, that they never had in life.

There’s your real “war on women.” And men.  Militant, bloodless ideology trumps all – even innocent, unborn human life.  This is the “compassionate left” for you, in a nutshell.  A sad commentary on today’s Democrats, but one that nevertheless should be  noted for the record.

    His abortion practice, started 40 years ago, mirror the rise of the pro-choice movement. They still have so much influence to warrant the MSM’s blackout.

  2. Carlos says:

    The choice isn’t “pro-life” or “pro-choice,” the choice is pro-life or murder.

    But you’ll never convince a low-info socialist feminazi of that. Ever.

  3. For the left and pro-choice prattlemeisters to say this decision is strictly a matter between an immature terrified mother-to-be and Dr. Gosnell is like saying the same decision is one best left to a condemned Jewish mother in a Nazi death camp and Dr. Mengele.

  4. Carlos says:

    When he goes to prison, I’ll bet Gosnell is a target of the prison Islamist gang – as a recruit! Look at how much practice he’s had with beheadings.

    And automatically one can assume that he has the same attitude about the sanctity of life as the Islamists…

  5. Nostradumbass says:

    “it was like screeching, making this noise. It was weird, it sounded like a little alien.”-Ex Gosnell employee Sherry West.

    Somehow, this has got to be “pro-choice”.

  6. Lorica says:

    The Left could not look inward and it could not look back.

    This could not be more truthful. This is the biggest problem with the left, unless they can throw other people’s money at a problem, they don’t want to deal with it. – Lorica

    Wonder how many babies were killed like this in Illinois when “Senator” obama lifted the ban on live birth abortion? I heard horror stories from nurses who quit one of the hospitals. And showed graphic videos of live babies left to die in dirty laudry rooms, thrown down garbage disposals and dumps, and sharp utensils stabbed in their neck.
    Want to know why the media won’t cover it?
    Look no further that our baby butcher-in chief.

    Cop killer, bomber Bernadine’s statement (and friends of the obmama family) on the Manson murders:

    “In December 1969, Weatherman convened a “War Council” at a black-owned concert hall in a Flint, Michigan ghetto. At that event (whose attendees included SDS leaders Tom Hayden and Jeff Jones), Dohrn launched a scathing attack on Hayden and his white confederates for not being radical enough. Said Dohrn: “Since October 11 [the last day of the Days of Rage], we’ve been wimpy…. A lot of us are still honkies and we’re scared of fighting. We have to get into armed struggle.” Also during the Council, Dohrn gave her most memorable and notorious speech to her followers. Holding her fingers in what became the Weatherman “fork salute,” she said of the bloody murders recently committed by the Manson Family (in which the pregnant actress Sharon Tate and a Folgers Coffee heiress and several other inhabitants of a Benedict Canyon mansion had been brutally stabbed to death): “Dig it! First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them. They even shoved a fork into the victim’s stomach! Wild!”[7]”http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2190

    If a Gosnell used an AR-15 with a 30 round magazine, there would be an outcry for “gun control”, and the mothers would get a trip to the Whitehouse.
