Wingnuts are in high gear of late, proclaiming their usual canard about there “being little or no difference between the parties”. Bull-f***ing-s***. Today’s debunking: women’s rights.

Huge differences abound: look at the current Teapubbie and Democratic platforms:

Number A: Repubs think women should allowed to die rather than allow them to have a life-saving abortion. Dems do NOT believe this.

Letter 2: Repubs think women should not be allowed to use birth control, or at least be deprived of insurance coverage if they need it. Oh, and that applies even if the pills are being used for other medical reasons than birth control. Dems do NOT believe this, either.

Thirdly: Repubs believe women should be made to work harder and be paid less. Once again: Democrats do NOT share this belief.

Ignore the lunatics of the fringe: the parties are VERY different. A vote for a Dem IS a vote against Repubs. Get on out and vote Dem.

Unless, of course, you hates you some women. If so, sit out the election or vote Republican. If not, get out and vote AGAINST the party that hates your mothers, sisters, and every woman on Earth. Any electoral action  OTHER  than a vote for a Dem is an attack on women. Period.

“No difference”, my Cranky A**. Tomorrow: Repubs’ love affair with terrorists.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Here is yet another story of anti-abortion laws that are murdering pregnant women. (It has happened in Ireland, too, lest you think El Salvador is unique.)

This case is simple: woman becomes pregnant, finds out her baby will be born without most of its brain and will thus die soon after birth: also finds out that she will die if she carries that child to term; and is forced by the El Salvadoran Supreme Court to carry the child to term anyway. This “pro-life” law will kill the mother, and will also result in a dead baby. So no lives are being saved by the so-called “pro-life” laws: in fact, these laws will end up killing even more people.

The “Republican” party fully supports such laws, and wants America to have them too. This means that Repubs are OK with murdering pregnant women. Let’s say that again: Republicans support murdering pregnant women.

Oh, they’ll try to dodge this, of course, but if you support a policy that includes a consequence, then boyo, you support that consequence. If you support a policy that results in killing pregnant women, you support killing pregnant women. Period. Own it.

Anyone who votes for a Repub shows their own support for murdering pregnant women. Think about that when you next enter a voting booth. They hold these policies because they think you support them (said support being proven by your vote). If you withhold that vote, they’ll get the message and change the policy. If you give them that vote, they will keep the murderous policy in place. Your choice, to support or oppose the murder of pregnant women.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Mr. Blunt and Cranky would like to make one thing plain at the outset: all Republicans oppose the right of a woman to make her own choices about health care. Every single Repub of every single variety is anti-choice, no exceptions. Some might claim to feel otherwise, but they elect “representatives” to office (and platform committee members, delegates and such) who uniformly oppose birth control and other vital health services, and further state that the best gynecological advice comes from a wealthy, white, elderly male fundagelical legislator with no knowledge of medicine or even basic science. By so acting and thus choosing, the modern Republicans expose their true attitudes. 

The liars that really hack this blogger off are Repub females who claim to be pro-choice. What a complete and utter load of mule muffins: all Republican women are effectively anti-choice, because they fund and support the Republican party, which is dedicated to destroying their reproductive and other health-care rights. If they truly were pro-choice, they could not in good conscience (or even in self-interest) support the Republican Party.

Kind of like being Black Klansmen or Jewish Nazis: regardless of their personal interests, they support a party that seeks at best to diminish their rights and legal standing within society. At worst, well, let’s not even go there.

The only difference between the average Repub and Todd Akin is one of honesty. Give Akin his due: the man may be an antediluvian, misogynistic, hateful, willfully ignorant luddite mother***er, but he came out and said what Ryan, Romney, Boehner, and the Platform Committee also think but don’t have the nuts to say out loud.

“Pro-Choice Republicans” – not just the LSoSoTW, but an oxymoron as well. Wear your Crown O’ Polished Turds with pride.
