Fear and loathing at the March for Life

March for Life 2019The March for Life 2019 was a shocking success. For over 30 years, Iowans for LIFE has been a presence at this iconic, cultural event. This year, we took four busloads of two-hundred students in all.

The mainstream media has bent over backwards to NOT cover this event, despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of people march peacefully for life each year in the nation’s capitol.

March for Life 2019 generates awesome news coverage!

But this year, we hit pay dirt! The mainstream media provided lavish coverage!

It’s true that CBS initially doled out but 8 seconds of coverage after the March, and the other networks were just as stingy.

And it’s true that they gave the Women’s March fifteen times the coverage, according to the Media Research Center.

But then the Covington Kids firestorm occurred which made it a lead story in every anti-life news outlet in the country.

No need to recount the details, you’ve read them elsewhere where some Catholic kids at the March supposedly harassed a native American in front of the Lincoln Memorial. This incident is profoundly significant because it reveals how much abortion supporters fear the March for Life.

The March for Life works

The March has been the most powerful weapon against Big Abortion and its minions because it galvanizes the youth, Planned Parenthood’s future customers, to reject human abortion and publicly oppose it.

Big Abortion and their allies in Big Media loathe these kids, which was on full display in their rush to condemn the Covington Kids.  Here are a few of their choice comments on these pro life young people:

“I don’t know what it says about me but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel. I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents.” Erik Abriss, writing for New York Media’s pop culture site, Vulture

More violent rhetoric from abortion supporters

Jack Morrissey, who co-produced “Beauty and the Beast” for Walt Disney Productions, built on this violent theme with a tweet, accompanied by a bloody graphic, that purrs:

“MAGA kids go screaming, hats first, into the wood chipper.”

Wonder what Walt would say about an employee who fantasizes about killing kids?

And even more…

CNN’s Ana Navarro called the boys “racists” and “a**wipes.” And their legal analyst, Bakari Sellers, said one of the boys should be “punched in the face.”

Not to be outdone, another CNN contributor, Reza Aslan, exclaimed,

“Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?”

A call for public shaming

At least comedian, Kathy Griffin, didn’t want to kill, chop up, or punch any of the kids. She simply wants them publicly named on social media and shamed:

“Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these f—ers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again.”

Hollywood actor, John Cusack, seemed chagrined by the kids’ Catholicity:

“This Covington School thing is beyond belief…the lack of basic Respect for an elder (any elder) is the number one symptom of a SICK society….MAGA CATHOLICS paving the road of ignorance…you are a DISGRACE…look that word up, it means something….learn your History, Catholics. Grow some spine Clergy…lead by example and stop embarrassing the rest of us who know better.”

More profanity…

Clearly, Hollywood actors know better than the rest of us, as another Hollywood actress, Debra Messing, demonstrated with this delicate description of one of the Covington kids:

“Mocking, condescending, disrespecting, A–HOLE,”

The authoress of “The Purity Myth,” Jessica Valenti, just plain didn’t like the looks of the fifteen year Catholic boy at the heart of the controversy:

“I think so many of us have been on the receiving end of the face he was making: a smug, untouchable, entitled f*** you.”

Guess she never heard the phrase, don’t judge a book by its cover.

The mainstream media had the story backwards

We could go on. You get the idea. Of course, the irony of the whole story is that the media had the story backwards. The Covington Kids were the victims, and a dishonest former marine and the mainstream media their victimizers.

The folks making the comments above quickly raced to delete their profane rants from their Twitter feeds when a full video of the affair became public exonerating the kids and condemning the adults.

Normal folks noticed

But normal folks around the country took notice at the way abortion rights supporters tried to destroy a group of fifteen year old kids.

Normal folks noticed the violent rhetoric that animated the conversations of those who characterize human abortion as “healthcare.”

Big Abortion and Big Media fear the March for Life and the growing wave of decent kids who head back to their schools proclaiming a reverence for human life from fertilization to natural death.

Millions of these kids have been on the March over the years. No wonder the abortion rate is dropping. No wonder Big Abortion and their media allies loathe them.
