#rsrh QotD, Time To Divorce Abortion From Feminism, Leftists edition.

(Via @sissywillis) Fay Voshell, on how apparently the pro-choice movement is increasingly becoming comfortable with the (imported) practice of… sex-selective abortion, which in practice means ‘aborting female babies because they have less perceived worth than male ones:’

Feminists have embraced an ideological construct which declares loudly and clearly that any woman can decide that her unborn little girl is worth less than a little boy.  They have gone along with the worst of third-world ethics, declaring female feticide a “choice” they can live with.

This issue has been of some concern to the pro-life community; as the links show, legislation to declare abortions based on race or gender issues as being violations of the Civil Rights Act has been introduced in the House.  Judging from the rather hysterical (using “the frothing reaction” metric: there’s nothing funny about opposing the killing of Asian babies simply because they’re female) reaction from various suspects, it’s unlikely to make it through the Senate this go-round.  Just one more thing for the ‘personally pro-life’ Democratic Senators out there to not take personally…

#rsrh The Center for Social Inclusion: teaching House Democrats to race-bait!

Wait, what?

House Democrats received training this week on how to address the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.

The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.

I don’t know what’s more bemusing: that the Democrats are conceding that they have no interest in themselves engaging in ‘free-market rhetoric,’ or that they’ve found a convenient person with the right melanin skin content to tell them that it’s quite all right to judge Republicans by the color of their skin, not the content of their character.  Probably the former: goodness knows we already knew that the only real way for minorities to advance in the Democratic party is in the career path of “scaring minorities into voting Democratic.”

I had more, but it’s Mother’s Day.

Democratic party abandoning Kendrick Meek in FL-SEN?

Looks that way:

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican Party to run for Senate as an independent, has hired a top Senate Democrat’s former chief of staff.

In a just-released statement, Crist announced that his media team will be headed by Josh Isay, who used to work for Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Schumer is a member of the Senate’s Democratic leadership team and once headed the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

More details here (H/T: Hot Air). The company is SKDKnickerbocker, and the anonymous Democrat who noted that this wouldn’t be happening without permission from the White House is quite correct: it wouldn’t be. Naturally, this means abandoning Kendrick Meek (interesting fun fact: he supported Hillary Clinton in the primary), but that’s no obstacle for the Democratic party, particularly since Meek is African-American anyway and thus assumed safe to be imposed upon*. Also naturally, you can assume that Crist will promise to caucus with the Democrats; even more naturally, you can assume that he’ll lie about that, too…

Mind you, all of this assumes that Crist can beat Marco Rubio. Click on that link to make sure that doesn’t happen.
