Good grief, the pro-abortion-at-any-time-up-until-after-delivery crowd is really outdoing themselves these days. Recently they chanted “Hail Satan” while pro-life activists sang Amazing Grace, but apparently that didn’t get themselves enough negative publicity. So they sent their own activists to the Texas state capital with jars of feces and urine, apparently with the intent to fling the feces and urine at those they disagree with. Luckily they were caught before any unsanitary assaults took place.
AUSTIN, TEXAS (DPS) – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today received information that individuals planned to use a variety of items or props to disrupt legislative proceedings at the Texas Capitol.
Therefore for safety purposes, DPS recommended to the State Preservation Board that all bags be inspected prior to allowing individuals to enter the Senate gallery, which the State Preservation Board authorized.
During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, check out the sign this young girl held high. I’m hoping her parents aren’t proud, but she had to get her ideas from somewhere.
What is the point of such an offensive sign? Certainly it’s not going to win over anyone on the fence on the issue, unless that person happens to be a classless, vulgar buffoon. Maybe that’s the point, there is no point, as Bryan Preston pointed out.
Sister Toldjah plucked this image off of Twitter and headlined it as evidence of the “abject failure of modern feminism.” It’s all that and a whole lot more.
That girl is obviously a minor. School is out in Texas in July so there’s no truancy in play, but there is modesty in play. There’s also intelligence, or the lack thereof, and kindness, or the lack thereof, and a sense of what is worth treating seriously and what is not.
Schools once taught rhetoric, which is really logic and how to build sound arguments to advance one’s positions. Rhetoric also involves how to spot and destroy faulty arguments.
That sign doesn’t rise to the level of argument at all. It’s not an idea. It articulates no position. It’s not anything more than an attempt to be cute and offensive, while trivializing what surely is a wrenching decision in any woman’s life. It’s terrible, sad, depressing, and wrong. As imagination and as rhetoric, it’s just a boot to the face.
That sign marks the slow failure of a civilization, one undereducated child at a time. (Read More)
Every day we’re bombarded with signs, like the one above, that our society is on the fast road to decline. When you think about it it’s downright depressing. I can’t imagine why any civilized human being would want to align him or herself with these poo-flinging, baby killing, exploiters of young women.
