Dawkins: Immoral Not To Abort Down’s Syndrome Child

Thursday, August 21st, 2014 by Pat Kane

Biologist and best-selling author Richard Dawkins is no stranger to controversy. However, his recent twitter comments about abortion and the disabled has caused an enormous social media backlash against him.

This most recent controversy came after one of his twitter followers told him they would face a “real ethical dilemma” if they were pregnant with a down’s syndrome fetus. Dawkins responded to this by saying “abort it and try again.” Adding, it would be immoral to not abort a child with down’s.

The aftermath of this conversation would later be described as a Twitter “feeding frenzy” by Dawkins on a blog post on his website.

While Dawkin’s comments drew criticism from both his antagonists and supporters alike, the most powerful tweets came from the parent’s of children affected by down’s asking the famed biologist if he thought their children deserved to be alive.

Dawkins more or less apologized for his outlandish comments in an article entitled Abortion & Down’s syndrome: Apology for Letting Slip the Dogs of Twitterwar. In the piece, Dawkins half heatedly apologizes for not approaching the subject with more tact, and then proceeds to blame his critics for willfully misunderstanding his position.

“Those who thought I was bossily telling a woman what to do rather than let her choose, of course this was absolutely not my intention and I apologize if brevity made it look that way,” wrote Dawkins.

“What I was saying simply follows logically from the ordinary pro-choice stance that most of us, I presume, espouse. My phraseology may have been tactlessly vulnerable to misunderstanding, but I can’t help feeling that at least half the problem lies in a wanton eagerness to misunderstand.”

While Dawkin’s reluctant apology won’t bring any solace to the families of down’s syndrome children, anyone familiar with Dawkin’s ego will undoubtedly chalk this half confession of guilt as a huge win.

Brown Family: New Black Panther Malik Shabazz Is “Instigating And Hijacking” #Ferguson Protests – Should “LEAVE” Immediately

Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 by Andrew Marcus

The family of Michael Brown, the 18 year old Ferguson, MO man gunned down by police after he robbed a liquor store, is publicly demanding radical New Black Panther Malik Shabazz to leave Ferguson after accusing him of “instigating and hijacking” the protests in reaction to Brown’s death. Two ministers also joined the call

Via TheNewsCommenter:

The family of Michael Brown, his cousin, I was with tonight, he was out on the scene, he did not think the prayer service was a good idea. He told me the family wants Malik Shabazz to leave. He finds him an instigator and two ministers today asked Shabazz to leave as well. Shabazz has positioned himself as a peacemaker, that he’s putting himself on the front lines trying to protect citizens from law enforcement. But the family of Michele Brown believes he’s instigating and is hijacking the real meaning of what the peaceful protesters are out here to do.

Video: Gun Hating Liberals Fire Guns For 1st Time Ever – “That Felt Kinda Bad Ass!”

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 by Pat Kane

LibsShootGuns

Hilarity ensued as five gun hating liberals were taken to a firing range to shoot guns for the first time in their lives.

“Maybe the right to bear arms was something that was necessary at the time — (now) it’s an antiquated thing,” said Allison before entering the range. 

Under the supervision gun club staff, participants were given a 9mn Beretta and then a shotgun to fire at a human shaped target.

“Never in my whole life did I think I’d shoot a shotgun,” said participant Hillary adding, “it smells like firecrackers.”

Reactions among the group were mixed. Abe, the video’s only male participant, said cocking the shotgun made him feel, “kinda bad ass” but was not swayed on gun control.

“I think if all guns were in this controlled environment in the LA gun club, that would be fine, but that is not the real world,” said Abe.

Others left the range feeling conflicted by the experience.

“It was kinda enjoyable, but then I was getting sickened by me feeling enjoyable about it,” said an emotionally distraught Daysha.

“Even though its fucked up and I feel confused and conflicted about it all, I would probably come back and do it again,” said Allison.

Despite the fact that none of the video’s participants left the range converted, it would be interesting to see how many of these LA hipsters would change their minds about guns after a home invasion.

Massive Data Breach! 4.5 Million People’s Records Hacked By Chinese

Monday, August 18th, 2014 by Andrew Marcus

 

There’s been a massive data breach at an American health care group that operates facilities across the country.

MILLIONS of Americans are affected.

Data stolen by “Chinese hackers”

(Reuters) - Community Health Systems Inc, one of the biggest U.S. hospital groups, said it was the victim of a cyber attack that originated in China, resulting in the theft of personal data belonging to 4.5 million patients in April and June.

The stolen information included patient names, addresses, birth dates, telephone numbers and Social Security numbers of people who were referred for or received services from doctors affiliated with the hospital group in the last five years, it said in a regulatory filing on Monday.

Will the state and federal Obamacare exchanges, which have been plagued with massive security flaws, do any better job protecting your incredibly sensitive data?

You Have ‘Near Zero’ Impact On Policy, Determines Princeton Study

Sunday, August 17th, 2014 by Pat Kane

Is America really the most free country on the plant? Despite what patriots may tell themselves, several new studies say ‘no.’ A shocking new report from Princeton University Professor Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Professor Benjamin Page found that the average American has a “near-zero” impact on U.S. policy, both domestic and foreign.

“Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impact on U.S. government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little to no independent influence,” reads the study which is slated to appear in the fall edition of Perspectives on Politics.

For the paper, researchers examined over 1,800 separate policy issues and the public attitude towards them. Of these 1,800 issues, the study determined that public opinion was almost categorically ignored by legislators.

This study comes only months after a similarly harrowing study by the same researchers that determined the U.S. government in not a democracy or a republic, but is in fact an oligarchy.

“I’d say that contrary to what decades of political science research might lead you to believe, ordinary citizens have virtually no influence over what their government does in the United States… Government policy-making over the last few decades reflects the preferences of those groups — of economic elites and of organized interests,” said Gilens in an interview.

Breitbart reporter Wynton Hall notes that while this research is controversial, one needs only to look at the news to see this phenomena in action. Hall claims that despite a Reuters poll showing 70% of Americans are starkly opposed to illegal immigration, special interest groups help keep the possibility of amnesty alive in Washington.

Missouri Democrat Pushed Legislation To Restrict Public Info On Police Shootings

Friday, August 15th, 2014 by Andrew Marcus

Missouri Democrat state Rep. Jeff Roorda pushed for legislation to keep police identities secret in cases like the Ferguson shooting.

Jeff Roorda

Watchdog reports:

Roorda introduced a bill last year to amend the state’s Sunshine Law to prevent the public from obtaining “any records and documents pertaining to police shootings … if they contain the name of any officer who did the shooting.”

The only time the name of an officer would be disclosed, under Roorda’s proposal, would be if the officer ended up being charged with a crime as a result of the shooting.

Roorda doesn’t even want cameras in police cars:

Roorda’s serious about this whole police-should-be-allowed-to-do-whatever-they-want thing, too. He recently told the Post-Dispatch that he, and the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association, oppose the use of cameras in patrol cars to monitor police activity.

This is just what liberals were complaining about in Ferguson, Missouri. They really need to make up their minds.
