In George Orwell’s 1984, ever-present telescreens continuously broadcast propaganda for the totalitarian government IngSoc. One would have to look no further than a video released Wednesday on the website of Harper's Bazaar to get an idea of what this kind of propaganda looks like. The video’s purpose was to advocate for Planned Parenthood and abortion “rights,” calling people to stand up against the new pro-life bills passed across the country.
Progressives “f*cking love science!” Really, they never tire of telling us that. Except when unborn babies are involved. Or dopey spiritualism. From silly daily horoscopes to public hexes against the President, the world of spiritual energy and incantations thought to be left behind in pagan Europe has now captured the imagination of the fastest growing “religious” group in America -- the “nones.” However, this acceptance of the occult seems more like a club against traditional Judeo-Christianity than a legitimate faith-based system of beliefs.
On Wednesday, The Huffington Post released an exclusive interview with Global Teacher Prize finalist Andrew Moffat to discuss his “No Outsider” teaching program in the U.K. that has been protested by many angry, religious parents, particularly from the Muslim community. The honest reporters at HuffPost U.K. framed Moffat’s program as promoting “equality across all sections of society” and teaching children about “diversity and LGBTQ rights,” with no regards to parents’ protests.
Today, the UK’s “centrist” newspaper The Independent reported that Brandon Wade, founder of a popular website for sugar daddies (older men that spend lavishly on their younger girlfriends for sex), has offered to pay Alabama women to have out-of-state abortions. The Independent's article itself is packed with rhetoric and misinformation meant to defame the pro-life support for the Alabama abortion bill.
Just when you think lefty political elites couldn’t get more detached from reality, they take a trip to Neverland. According to The Guardian, the U.N. Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kate Gilmore believes that the “US policy on abortion is a form of extremist hate that amounts to the torture of women.” Supposedly, the pro-life bills that have passed across the country are indicative of a “crisis,” “organized and well-resourced by very extremist groups.” And by “extremist groups” she means “conservative, Christian organizations.”
Ever since her decision to go political back in October, Taylor Swift has chugged the entire pitcher of liberal Kool-aid. On Saturday, Swift posted a letter she wrote to Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander on her Instagram. The letter urged the Senator to support the Equality Act, an “anti-discrimination” bill that discriminates against religious views on traditional marriage and biological sex.
Lizz Winstead is no stranger to subtlety and grace. The co-creator and former head writer of the Daily Show announced in a Twitter thread that she has changed the name of her abortion advocacy group from the refined “Lady Parts Justice” to the more low-key “Abortion Access Front!” or “Abortion AF” for short (AF is also short for “as fuck” in internet lingo).
Progressive pastor Rev. Adam Eriksen and his Clackamas United Church have been generating some buzz around his community in Milwaukie, Oregon, according to a CNN report posted on Tuesday. On the marquee sign in front of the church, the pastor has posted messages that read “Harriet Tubman deserves to be on the $20. End white supremacy” and “Our transgender siblings have heartbeats” in response to the “heartbeat” abortion bills being passed across the country. In short, this is CNN’s type of Christian, quite distinct from those stuffy old God n’ morality types the network so disdains.
In an article posted on Monday, The Guardian attacked what the liberal Tennessee Equality Project has dubbed the “Slate of Hate”-- a set of bills designed to protect religious liberty in Tennessee. The headline asserted that the state is “set to ‘legalize hate.’”
CNN recently aired its first-ever stand-up special and some journalists are scratching their heads as to why, worried that the network’s increasingly lefty reputation will reach even more epic proportions with some political humor aimed at angry conservatives. The Poynter Institute was wary of its lefty ally’s comedic dabblings, though interestingly, Red State Blue State with Colin Quinn was an equal opportunity lampoon of both conservatives and liberals and not some risky libel about Trump supporters.
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies. Following her threatened boycott in March, one-time actress and full-time shrew Alyssa Milano had already convinced David Simon, creator of The Wire, to join the fad. Now there are few other big celebs getting in on the action.
