The Lefty Buffoonery That Republicans Need to ‘Shut Down’ Once and For All

One of the residual effewarrencts of this week’s government shutdown and the implementation of Obamacare has been a sharp uptick in political commentary across social media. At least, that’s what I’ve been seeing when I’ve logged into my online accounts over the past few days.

I’m not talking about the normal activity. There are certainly a lot of armchair pundits who regularly take to the Internet to air their political grievances, but right now I’m seeing something a little bit different. People who are typically a bit apprehensive about publicly weighing in on political matters (primarily out of fear of irritating their friends on Facebook) are feeling compelled to throw in their two cents worth on the big debates raging in Washington.

I’m watching my typically timid conservative friends fiercely tear into Obamacare, while my friends on the left, including ones who rarely bring up politics, are railing against the “GOP sponsored” government shutdown. There’s much more passion out there than usual.

In the midst of all of this grumbling, I keep seeing a YouTube video being referenced by my liberal friends entitled something like, “U.S. Senator Says What Everyone is Thinking About the Government Shutdown.” Based on the frequency of its appearance, I decided to check it out.

The video is of a speech on the Senate floor given by Elizabeth Warren a few days ago. She’s that hard-left senator from Massachusetts who is best known for pretending to be a Native American to advance her career in education, and also inspiring President Obama’s infamous “You Didn’t Build That” rant.

What was her profound statement that so many of my liberal friends agreed that “everyone” was thinking? Here you go:

“With millions of people out of work, with an economic recovery still far too fragile, with students and families being crushed by student loan debt, with millions of seniors denied their chance at one hot meal a day with Meals on Wheels and millions of little children pushed out of Head Start because of a sequester, with the country hours away from a government shutdown and days away from a potential default on the nation’s debt, the republicans have decided that the single most important issue facing our nation is to change the law so that employers can deny women access to birth control coverage.”

Well there you have it, folks… The real reason for the Republican party’s objection to Obamacare: They want to deny women access to birth control.


Hearing crack-pot nonsense like this is irritating enough as it is, but when I witness people I know and respect actually buying into this left-wing propaganda? It’s pretty hard to take.

Even one of my instinctively conservative friends took the bait, expressing outrage over what she didn’t realize was merely shameless demagoguery and defamation, because her lefty friends were lending it credence.

When people aren’t paying attention to what’s actually going on in this country, they’re sadly prone to this form of brainwashing, and it’s a very frustrating thing to witness.

But the truth is that the “War on Women” campaign that the Democrats concocted in 2012 to yank the national debate away from the failed policies of their president and party was a very successful one. It worked. It created an emotionally-driven narrative (despite bearing no resemblance to reality) that became a key campaign issue of the election, and it compelled a lot voters (women in particular) not to vote for Mitt Romney.

When you look back at the Democrats’ strategy, it really was quite impressive.

In January of 2012, during a Republican primary debate, questioner (and former Democratic political advisor) George Stephanopoulos fired the first shot in the War on Women, asking the GOP candidates their thoughts on states banning women from using contraception. The Republican candidates on stage were completely perplexed by Stephanopoulos’ question, expressing their confusion over why on earth any state would even think of doing such a thing. Mitt Romney himself stated that he had never even heard of a candidate, let alone a state, who wanted to enact such a bizarre policy.

Romney and the Republicans were right to be confused. The question was completely nonsensical. Even very socially conservative candidates like Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum, in interviews conducted after the debate, scoffed at the notion of a contraception ban.

Yet, by the time election night rolled around ten months later, there was a national narrative engrained into many voter’s minds that the Republicans wanted to take away women’s birth control. How did this happen? It’s because the DNC, the news media, and the entertainment industry worked in concert to drive this trash right down the throats of low-information voters… and it worked!

As evidenced by the popularity of the Elizabeth Warren video (which has well over a million views right now), my fear is that this craziness still has some mileage. This means we could very well see the War on Women conveniently revitalized around election time of 2014.

The GOP would do itself an enormous favor by being better prepared for such insanity this time around, and to get out in front of it. Conservatives and the Republican party can’t afford to just laugh this stuff off, and assume that people will see right through it. The people won’t see through it. They’ve proven that. From a Dead Sleep - by John A. Daly

There needs to be a serious discussion in GOP strategy meetings on how to effectively obliterate the hysterical, women-victimization charges that spew out of the mouths of left-wing demagogues like Elizabeth Warren. Because if Republicans don’t take things like this seriously, they’ll end up wasting an incredible amount of time next year defending themselves against fairy tale assertions, when they should be spending their time giving Americans reasons to vote for them.

    John, you are absolutely correct. It is a tale of Machiavelli’s ilk and persuasion. It should not be assumed that there are enough people out there who have an understanding of what’s going on when the DNC and cast employ these tactics.

    The scary thought, though, is that it might work again. A case in point. How many people realize that even if a SCOTUS challenge were mounted regarding the presidential waivers, exemptions and special subsidies that have been granted in order to soften the real impact of Obamacare felt by large employers, the hearing and ruling by SCOTUS would come after the mid-term elections. This would benefit the president and the DNC by delaying the impact of Obamacare for the president’s most trusted allies–the corporate media employers. I have not heard anyone speak to this point although if the scenario is played out as it appears to be going, then you will hear the issue come up in the future. Now is the time to be addressing the president’s scheme.

    This is just one of a myriad of examples where the “I’m going to have the most transparent administration in history” president should be viewed for his true nature. Machiavelli would be proud him. I’ll bet he could ‘almost see him as his own son.’

  • pat brady

    Rick Santorum actually said in an interview with Jake Tapper, that he did believe that states had a right to ban contraception.

    You had republicans saying rape was a gift from God. Santorum said women should make the best out of a bad situation. Rush Limbag had chimed in. Romney said he backed the Blunt Amendment too which allowed employers to deny covering it through their health care plan. You can debate whether you agree with the Blunt Amendment but don’t say that the media made this story up.

    • John Daly

      Tell me the name of a Republican politician who wanted or currently wants to ban women from having birth control. Not even Rick Santorum wanted that.

      There were two idiots running for the U.S. senate who said stupid things about about rape and were correctly excoriated for it and cut off from funding by the Republican party itself.

      Being against mandating that insurance companies cover birth control isn’t DENYING anyone access to birth control… It’s saying that individuals should pay for their own.

      So what you’re left with is the idiotic words of two people constituting a “Republican War on Women”? Is that really what your argument?

      • pat brady

        I guess you don’t remember the “forcible rape” thing? Paul Ryan “rape is just another method of conception”.

        The law in Virginia that said any woman that went in for an abortion had to have a trans vaginal probe. Think that went over well with women?

        Rick Santorum saying states should have the right to outlaw birth control? His quote I believe was “It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

        Paul Ryan actually sponsored a bill with Todd Akin too didn’t he so it’s not like Akin was seen by the party as some extremist. The bill the sponsored together is where the term “forcible rape” came from. Not exactly a champion of women. The bill give full rights of life to a woman’s egg the moment it becomes fertilized. You think that’s something most women would get behind? The bill would have made some forms of birth control illegal as well as inverto fertilization. I have to think most women would not get behind that bill.

        Romney saying he would cut all funding to Planned Parenthood?

        Who was the guy that said in his day they prescribed asprin for birth control, the girls were told to keep it between their legs.

        Oh, what about when Republicans decided to call a panel of ALL men to speak about WOMENS contraception? That was a good one.

        Trent Franks defending Akin said the incidence of pregnancy from rape is very very low. Steve King from Iowa saying he’s never heard of a child getting pregnant from rape and therefore abortions should be illegal in ALL circumstances. One of he Akin defenders Fischer I think said almost the same exact thing as Akin, that if it was a REAL rape, a forcible rape then the woman’s body would not allow for it to get pregnant. I think he used the same exact words of “shut that whole thing down”. Mike Huckabee also defended Akin., sure you’ve heard of him.

        Sharon Barnes saying that even in the case of rape “if God has chosen to bless you with a child…”

        Paul Ryan saying “I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”

        Which republican was it that said “some girls rape easy”?

        A congressman from Maryland also said it was very very rare for rape to result in pregnancy.

        You can agree or disagree with any of what was said but don’t try to pretend that the media made it up.

        • John Daly

          >>I guess you don’t remember the “forcible rape” thing? Paul Ryan “rape is just another method of conception”.

          Do you really not understand that when you place text in between quotes, that’s supposed to cite an ACTUAL quote? Get it right and we’ll talk.

          >>The law in Virginia that said any woman that went in for an abortion had to have a trans vaginal probe. Think that went over well with women?

          Give me a break. The law was that a woman would require an ULTRASOUND before receiving an abortion, not a probe. The problem was that the legislation didn’t take into account that in the very early days of pregnancy, the probe method is what is used for ultrasounds. That provision was amended a week later before ever going into law.

          >>Rick Santorum saying states should have the right to outlaw birth control?

          He was entertaining a theoretical discussion about states rights vs the power of the supreme court. It was a dumb move politically, because it made it easy for people like you to insinuate he was saying something that he wasn’t, but he never supported banning contraception.

          >>His quote I believe was “It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

          Again, context is a great thing. He was talking about his personal views as a Christian, not legislation he supports. Personally, I believe marital infidelity is “not okay”. Does that mean I support making the act punishable by law? No.

          >>Paul Ryan actually sponsored a bill with Todd Akin too didn’t he so it’s not like Akin was seen by the party as some extremist. The bill the sponsored together is where the term “forcible rape” came from. Not
          exactly a champion of women.

          So legislation that distinguishes out statutory rape is evidence of a War on Women? Lots of legislation does, written by both Democrats and Republicans. Poorly worded for sure, but the inference that the 170 people in congress who sponsored the bill somehow believed that rape isn’t a force-able act is absurd. Just like everything else, it’s an attempt to radicalize things that aren’t radical through semantics games.

          >>The bill give full rights of life to a woman’s egg the moment it becomes fertilized.

          Wrong. It was about which procedures would be paid for by the federal government, not which would be legal.

          >>Romney saying he would cut all funding to Planned Parenthood?

          FEDERAL funding, yes. Do you have any idea how much private funding Planned Parenthood already receives?

          >>Who was the guy that said in his day they prescribed asprin for birth control, the girls were told to keep it between their legs.

          Foster Friess. He’s a businessman who made a dumb joke about the merits of abstinence. He’s not even a politician.

          >>Oh, what about when Republicans decided to call a panel of ALL men to speak about WOMENS contraception? That was a good one.

          If the topic were actually about contraception, it would have indeed been insensitive. Only, that’s not what the topic was about. It was about the religious freedom of institutions not to be required by the government to provide contraception if they choose not to.

          I have no patience for Todd Akin defenders, and people who make stupid jokes about sensitive issues like rape. My point is that the media makes the Republican party own every single wing-nut who says something stupid, while they absolutely refuse to do the same things with Democrats.

          Imagine if the media made the Democrats own people like Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner, and even Bill Maher for that matter. The notion that the Republicans were the ones waging a “War on Women” would be as laughable as an angry Ed Schultz rant.

            Re PB limerick?
            I found him so boring I’d give him a pass,
            his laughable comments were totally crass,
            they make up some schtick,
            then try making it stick,
            but brother you really kicked ass.

          • Brian Fr Langley

            PS I know it sounds a little like a personal attack, (on PB) but it’s meant tongue in cheek, and rhymes are hard to come by, so no harm meant, I actually thought PB’s comments were worth addressing, meaning they were also worth receiving.

            Is the worst of all loonery,

            The rant is the tool,

            The mark of a fool,

            And we wait for their self-induced end!

      • D Parri

        Why is it that the piety of ideological zealots within the democratic party blind them from being able to even understand the very words that they choose to quote?

        It is an altogether different meaning between rape and conception. The act of rape is not defensible. The miracle of conception is a gift from our Maker. If God grants the miracle of life, then it is solely upon those who choose to deny God’s miracle to defend their actions before God. He will judge.

  • Bob Olden

    I don’t understand how Republicans can be “ready” when the opponents can take any misstatement (or fabricate one) and use it to paint the whole party as a bunch of crackpots. And when the party favored by major media is protected in every devious tactic they utilize and never held accountable for misleading the public, how can you “prepare” for this?

    • John Daly

      I think whenever the topic comes up in a debate, they need to handle it like Chris Christie would. I would love to see all the Republican candidates, when asked about a contraception ban, answer with something like, “You know, that has to be one of the single stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. No wants to take away anyone’s birth control. I also don’t want to pass a law forcing unicorns to wear saddles. Now can we move on to an issue that’s real?”

      I think that would actually do some good. They need to go on offense when confronted with this stuff, and even mock the fantasy assertions in their campaign ads.

      • Bob Olden

        Maybe we should equip all republican candidates with a book of “Langley’s limericks” so they can whip one out and use it to mock those fantasy assertions!

        • John Daly

      • pat brady

        I agree, they should refrain from sharing their opinions in public kind of like how Romney did with his views on 47% of America being slackers.

        • John Daly

          It’s not avoidance of sharing an opinion. It’s avoidance wasting time defending themselves against fairy tale assertions.

          To put it in a liberal’s perspective, Republicans having to defend themselves against the claim that they want to forbid women from having birth control is like President Obama having to defend that he was born in this country.

          The difference is that the media helps Obama bat down the silliness when he’s the target, but when the GOP is the target, they promote it the silliness.

          • pat brady

            It’s a simple answer then, just say of course not. Ask a liberal if they want to abolish beef and I’m sure they could give you a simple answer. Obama has been asked about gun rights hasn’t he? In fact I’ve seen Sean Hannity implying that Obama is going to take your guns away.

            Comparing a REAL question to a racist question is like apples and stupid. Obama is asked the question about his birth certificate for 2 reasons, the color of his skin and his name. The reality is that he was asked the question over and over and over. He didn’t have to avoid it. A good equivalent would be taking an extreme liberal stance on something and asking democratic candidates about it. The question was a simple one. It wasn’t a trick question. Romney got tripped up over it because he tried to appeal to everyone. He tried to appeal to the far right and the independents. You can’t have it both ways though.

            Yeah, the media helps Obama all the time, I know just like they helped Clinton by not covering the Lewinski scandal. The birth certificate thing had NO BASIS in anything. Should they have covered that as a legitimate story? The contraceptive story on the other hand was real. You had republicans saying some pretty extreme things when it comes to women. Romney had endorsed a guy that said “rape was a gift from God”. I think that’s a story. He endorsed the Blunt Amendment which would have given employers the right to block a woman’s access to contraceptives. Agree with it or disagree with it but it’s worthy of questioning. It’s a valid question to ask.

          • John Daly

            There was no less basis for the phony birth certificate trash than there was for a claim of a contraception ban from Republicans. That’s the point I’m making.

            For every idiotic “rape” statement made by a Republican (there were two), there was at least one weird issue regarding Obama’s birthplace, such as is own literary agent promoting him as being born in Kenya, and his grandmother claiming he was born there. Neither of those have anything to do with the color of his skin.

            In both cases, however, neither issue was legitimate. Yet the media shot down the falsities in one case and promoted them in the other.

            And don’t give me that nonsense about Clinton/Lewinsky. The media covered up Slick Willie’s marital indiscretions as long as they possibly could until the whole house of cards came toppling down.

            The guy Romney endorsed (Richard Mourdock) didn’t say “rape was a gift from God.” That was a false quote on your part. He said “LIFE was a gift from God”. Still, because it was spoken in the context of that life being created from rape, he rightfully took some heat. Romney denounced those words. He didn’t endorse them.

            Obama, on the other hand, endorsed Rod Blagojevich, one of the most corrupt politicians of the modern era. He also endorsed Alan Grayson, a man who has said far more insane things than Richard Mourdock ever has.

            And please stop lying about the Blunt Amendment. It in no way blocked a woman’s access to contraceptives. I sometimes think you people on the left haven’t a clue what the word “access” means. The Blunt Amendment merely let an insurance company decide whether or not they wanted to cover contraceptives in their plans, as opposed to having the individual pay for it themselves.

            My insurance company doesn’t cover the purchase of band-aids. That doesn’t mean they’re preventing me from buying them, or that they want me to bleed to death.

          • Jeff Webb

            There’s a very good reason why liberals invented and/or attacked Republican “intolerance” about abortion & birth control: they knew fiscal conservatives would clean their clock if they had to talk about the more pressing current topic, the economy.

            Liberals were treated to an early Christmas twice: Governor Romney being too gentlemanly to call out others’ bullshit, and Mourdock being too stupid to conceal his own.

          • John Daly

            The Romney thing, in particular, was pretty frustrating. Being a gentleman and taking the high ground was a big reason why he lost.

          • pat brady

            That’s one way to look at it. One completely insane way but it’s one way.

            Romney didn’t exactly run a positive campaign. He had trouble beating Rick SANTORUM in the primaries for God’s sake.

          • John Daly

            Oh please. Romney was painfully reluctant to push back on a lot of the nonsense that Obama’s people were throwing at him, including being responsible for a cancer death, not paying his taxes for ten years, being a felon, etc. He didn’t want to wrestle around in the mud like the Obama campaign was more than willing to do, and it cost him big time. He couldn’t even bring himself to push Obama on Benghazi. If the positions were reversed, Obama would have absolutely excoriated him.

            Heck, I even suspect Mitt let up on Obama in the second two debates because he was feeling victors-guilt for having absolutely creamed him in the first one. If he would have been as relentless in the second two debates, I think he probably would be our president right now.

          • pat brady

            Romney HAD endorsed Murdock. You think those views came out of left field? You think the fact that republicans want employers to be able to not cover a birth control is going to make you popular with women? You think embracing a guy like Rush Limbaugh is going to draw women to the party? Opposing equal pay for women? Think that helps? Rick Santorum said EXACTLY what you claimed “even Rick Santorum would never say that”. He said he believed that states SHOULD have the right to make contraception illegal. More than a few republicans defended Akin for weeks after he said what he did. It’s not the views of 1 or 2 republicans that got them in trouble. It’s the voting patterns of the party that created the story.

            I can’t think of a more insane thing to say to a woman by the way then to say the result of your rape was a gift from God. I can’t think of a more offensive thing to say than implying that if you got pregnant as a result of a rape then you probably weren’t raped. Grayson does say some things that are out there but I can’t think of anything he’s said that would be nearly as offensive to any one group.

    Limerick? Sorry this one may be a tad too cerebral for liberals. lol
    But is actually meant for traditionalist types anyway.
    Libertinism’s a moral disguise,
    liberty in counterfeit guise,
    if I raise not a voice,
    to your every last choice,
    our society is one you’ll despise.
    What we’re missing, is the notion there is a right. We get what our rights are, we just simply don’t get what is right. You know, a right that is diametrically opposed to a wrong. Liberals, along with their media cronies, have at last convinced us, that right and wrong are relative. Relative to what? Imagine all the humans, in all our civilations of the past, hearing us tell them, aborting our offspring (as our free choice) is a higher right (ethic) than raising them? Or saving our economy by adulterating our currency (trying to enrich ourselves by adding base metals to gold) is a higher right (ethic) than honest trade? Or how about explaining, how our right to indulge ourselves sexually, is a higher right (ethic) than fidelity or chastity? Or telling them, it’s a higher right, to prescript children, condoms, morning after pills, and birth control pills, than prescripting abstention? (because they’ll just do it anyway)? Or how about explaining that because “they’ll just do it anyway”, the higher right, is to confiscate the earnings from our workers, to provide care for babies, made by babies? Or how it’s a higher right, to confiscate earnings from our dutiful and committed progenitors, and supply it to non progenitors, so they can feel good about themselves? (oh, and have a share of the confiscated cash). When one highly rewards ignoble, ignoble is what one should expect. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that morality is not divisible. Standing up for “right” means standing up for “right”. The mainstream media, and our culture, have confused to many of us, into thinking the high ethic’s of liberty, are the same as the base desires of the libertines.

  • Brian Fr Langley

    There is a hard truth about conservative unity. The media has quite successfully divided, so called “social conservatives”, from so called “fiscal conservatives”. The truth is, fiscal conservatism can NOT exist without social conservatism. I mean how can a nation be fiscally responsible, when faced with supporting the 100’s of thousands of children being raised in single parent families? Should we attack the symptom, (hungry children) or the cause? Failed families? And what causes families to fail? There’s nothing new or unique here. For millennia we’ve known that sex makes babies? (hungry children) In fact our civilization was founded and built on traditions, that quite successfully bounded our urge to merge, into something called family. From families come tribes, from tribes come nations. But the bed rock, is the family. I don’t want to blather on, but this is why the morality of social conservatism counts. Fiscal conservatism is really about fiscal morality. But morality is a continuum. Stealing, cheating and lying, are no more socially destructive than rampant promiscuity. And rampant promiscuity, is as much a failing of moral character, as is lying, cheating and stealing. Along with one typically come the others. Fiscal conservatives (and I’m one) need to realize we’ll never achieve fiscal rectitude without first achieving societal rectitude.

    John: Surely the fact that the Dems could successfully conduct a campaign suggesting that the GOP opposed birth control in the year 2012 … says much about the absolute incompetence of the GOP establishment and their campaign strategies … does it not????

    • John Daly

      How so?

      • Chas Holman

        Hi John.. I am not here to tell you how to think. I am just telling you what is going to happen.

        See ya in 2014 friend.

        • John Daly

          Ah. Thanks Miss Cleo.

    Write the same story and replace references to Elizabeth Warren and you tube with Rush Limbaugh and radio then you would have a real story.

    • John Daly

      I’d have a nonsensical story, but that’s what the lefties like, I suppose.

    Limerick? What can I say your article inspires.
    I love them Pols that give me it free,
    free food and cellphones at no cost or fee,
    see eye to eye,
    do he and I,
    when he and I both are for me.

    • John Daly

      Brian, you are a ray of sunshine in a dark and crazy world. lol.

      • Brian Fr Langley

        The house market they told us has bubbled,
        along with the debt that has doubled,
        as it says in the book,
        now go take a look,
        “and let not your heart be” so “troubled”.

    It’d be hilarious, if it wasn’t wrecking the place. Liberals are typically quite elitist, conservatives typically less so. Looks like Liberals may have been right on this one. Most voters it seems, are actually to dumb to be allowed to vote??? So just how do we get information to the “low information” voter? How about emotion, and free stuff, and more free stuff. How about more Government, with more programs, and many, many more entitlements. You know, be like liberals. Pander to the lowest common denominators. Pander to their sexual proclivities. Free birth control, free condoms, and never, never consider a sexual encounter illicit. Shame on us, for shaming folks who don’t prefer monogamy. Pander to their addictions. Sex, drugs, and gambling, All legal, and all everywhere, for every one. Pander to their greed, how about cheap (or free) interest on Government loans. Or free health care. How about free food stamps and free welfare. Pander to their envy. The rich will pay this bill. Oh, and how about free cell phones. Now this is how you win an election.

      Damn straight on the cheap interest on Government Loans. Student Loans must be totally abolished. The default rate is in the twenty + percent range. We seriously give 18 yr olds tens of thousands of dollars for 5 percent interest? You’ve got to be kidding me. If you don’t have the money then don’t go to school. Live within your means. Get a minimum wage job and just deal with it!. And don’t let those same damn kids stay on their parents health insurance either just because they cant buy their own in that minimum wage job they are stuck in because they can’t go to school. No money then No school and no health care!!! And don’t come looking for no freebies either. You raise your family on 8 bucks an hour and don’t you come looking for government handouts. After all, if you don’t have 100k to go to school thats your problem not mine. Hell yeah Brian!!!!

      • John Daly

        Yeah Brian! How dare you? lol 😉

        I know, I get it. It was like when our dad’s told us they had to walk 6 miles to school, uphill, every day, in 20 degree below zero blizzards. They hyped it just a tad. So the stories of our grand parents and great grandparents, arriving in the new world with nothing but the shirts on their backs, and only the strength of their own two hands was probably hype as well??? I mean you should hear the whoppers mine left behind. Their water only came from a well they had to dig. Meat came only from the game they shot. Vegetables and grains were only available if they grew it themselves. Schools were organized around a dawn to dusk farm day, even for the youngest children. No work, meant no eat. They lost their sons and daughters to typhus, cholera and smallpox, and their sons to two world wars. They carved a nation out a vast endless prairie, and they did it with their own bare hands. As for Government? What Goverment? It was a two – five day train ride away. They relied on nobody but themselves and each other. Well at least that’s what they told us.

        Typical liberal, lack argument, attack person.
