Medea's millennium and Nobel Prize winning barbarism
By Michael Moriarty
I could have titled this editorial "Hillary's Planned Parenthood," however, I am told that few of my editorials are read in their entirety, so I put as much as I can into the title. In the case of "Medea's millennium", just how ancient and recurring is homicidal feminism? "Nobel Prize winning barbarism" speaks for itself.
Another possible "headline," of course, and one inspired by a film starring Danny de Vito and Billy Crystal, would be Throw Margaret Sanger from the Train! My feelings about Ms. Sanger are akin to Winston Churchill's fantasies about Karl Marx; Sanger herself should have been the first gestating infant that she wished to have aborted … or, as Churchill daydreamed, "Karl Marx should have been strangled in the womb!"
Of course, Margaret Sanger without Karl Marx would have been like Red China without a population control policy or Adolf Hitler without the eugenics of Sir Francis Galton.
Am I skipping around too glibly for you? I warned you how few are the readers who finish my articles. However, with unforgettable titles they increasingly "get the point."
For those who care to press on with me, what arises next is the Human Genome Project … sorry, nothing lighter comes to mind … the leadership of which passed from the hands of a self-confessed eugenicist, or fan of Sir Francis Galton, Nobel Prize winner James D. Watson, to the cunningly persuasive guidance of a Progressive and tacitly pro-abortion Christian, Francis S. Collins. The Genome Nation, so to speak, has used the same strategy which the Progressives used when they replaced Franklin Roosevelt's Vice-President Henry Wallace with the profoundly more homespun Harry Truman. In other words, from Watson to Collins is the same "Progressive card trick," so to speak, as from Henry Wallace to Harry Truman.
America was utterly unaware of the theatrical magic behind what was basically a change in the cast and not one altered syllable in the original, very, very, very Progressive playscript.
You may well ask, "What has the Genome Project to do with Medea?"
So far, both heads of the Genome Project, Watson and Collins, are pro-abortion.
If that seems too far afield, then memorize this editorial's title and you already own the message I am attempting to convey.
For those still with me, a word or two about Medea is in order.
Medea is the famously ancient Greek leading lady, the one who murdered her own children, not as an act of selfless "population control," but to wreak vengeance on her husband, Jason, and all men in general.
Obviously, this American generation is, so far at least, Medea's Millennium. And, as I have said repeatedly, this millennium will never be released from Medea's ownership until the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, and the Supreme Court which authored it, are de-fanged. Literal venom has dripped from the pens of these "enlightened despots," as Voltaire might have described them. From its support of slavery in the Dred Scott decision to its legalizing sterilization of Americans which justices like Oliver Wendell Holmes consider unfit and to the 34 year old Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, the Supreme Court's vengeful supremacism, such as that of not only Medea, but of classic Progressive know-it-alls such as Robespierre of the French Revolution who retro-actively aborted or, more specifically, guillotined the "un-enlightened" and was, in turn, aborted by a falling blade, such barbarism will reign over all of mankind.
The most honest and least hypocritical proponent of a similar barbarism is Islam and its terrorists. Is it any wonder they are "in the faces" of the free world? The Clinton Iniative's third millennium brand of Western Progressive hypocrisy almost makes Osama bin Laden a model of Eastern honesty, the honest Eagle Scout of mass murder and pure Islamic jihadism.
If we can butcher our own children so blithely, what do you expect of God, any God, including Allah, to do with us? Until Roe v. Wade is overturned and the diabolically Progressive Supreme Court put in its place, 9/11 will hardly be kept an autumnal nightmare. Such unbearable agonies will become a year round, Islamic pastime, and there will be nothing, absolutely nothing, any leader of the free world can do about it.
Because the very unhypocritical Red Chinese will increasingly aid and abet the Muslims in their war on Western Civilization.
As Abraham Lincoln eventually realized, America will always and forever be obliged to live up to the human rights paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, wherein all men are created equal, endowed by their creator with the inalienable right to life …
Not death by abortion.
