Bloomberg: I won’t run for president, ‘plain and simple’
Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, which is part of Bloomberg’s initiative, said her organization plans to reach out to women and mothers over the next several months leading up to midterm elections.
“In many ways this is about emotion. The gun lobby has done a good job over the last 30 years of making a vocal minority afraid people will take their guns away. As a mother, I’m afraid someone is going to take my children away,” she said.
A friend sent me this link and asked:
I am puzzled how groups that claim to seek to empower women encourage them to embrace the false security of being disarmed and relying on others to defend them.
And I replied:
Unfortunately, these women are very eager to believe that they can live in the land of unicorns and fairy farts. They don’t want – or cannot even conceive of – personal responsibility for anything. They see oppression on every hand when their choices and actions result in pain and loss (when they can actually see and admit it at all)… it’s someone else’s fault, of course – and their lives would be so wonderful if EVERYONE they don’t like were forced to be mewling newborn kittens. They can’t even begin to see the hypocrisy here.
They believe with all their hearts that they can play naked and defenseless among strangers and never have their least whim disappointed. They want a “choice” to murder their babies, and can’t even be bothered to give them away to someone who wants them. Or keep their damned pants on (or take a pill) if they don’t want to be bothered. And we won’t go into the insanity of turtles and fish being vital to the “planet” but babies are disposable garbage.
I could go on, but you get my drift. It is about so much more than who has guns. It’s about control. It’s always about control. And those who do not want to control their own lives by being responsible for their choices and actions freely choose masters like Bloomberg.
Bloomberg appeals to these cretins because he promises that he will fulfill their unicorn dreams and never hold them responsible. He promises what is not, and never will be, of course. And then one day, perhaps, they’ll help put him up against a wall…
They want a “choice” to murder their babies… babies are disposable garbage.
Since I’m not aware of an epidemic of infanticide in the U.S., I take it you’re referring to abortion? Is there any point early in pregnancy when you don’t consider the little blob of protoplasm to be a “baby”? Or is babyhood achieved the moment a sperm touches an egg?
Yes indeed. Abortion, or murder by any other name. Is there truly any difference between the murder of a baby five minutes after birth… or days before? What would be that difference? At what point would you feel good, at ease, about killing an innocent, helpless living being?
Why are people so horrified about the woman in Utah who murdered seven newborn infants? If she’d just gone to the nice doctor and had him kill them, pretty much at any time before birth, few would have bothered to even notice. Just how can that be justified?
Each person is responsible for him/herself and must live with the consequences of their action or inaction. Since each living “blob of protoplasm” is almost always created as a matter of choice… and conception can so easily be prevented in most cases. The irresponsibility of not choosing to prevent it, or to kill the life thus created seems clear. And yes, a newly fertilized human egg is fully human because it is alive. A is A… it is either a living thing or it is not. It is an illogical juggle of morals to argue about just when else that life becomes human.
You were once a “blob of protoplasm.” I’m glad you were not sucked into a sink and flushed down the drain.
But the question I was addressing is the fact that these anti-gun women are being enabled to avoid any real responsibility for their own lives, and attempting to destroy the autonomy of others who make different decisions and remain responsible for themselves. The abortion thing is simply one of the more visible and horrible examples.
Mama- as you know, I have become enamored of your wit and wisdom. And again, you have hit it out of the park. I shall include this as your weekly contribution to MY weekly gun rants on TLE, Newstalkers, and NewsVine.
Thank you for the encouragement! It makes me so sad to see women demeaned and damaged by people like Bloomberg. Fortunately, I also hear from many women who are waking up and want to learn how to defend themselves.
