QUOTATION

“It’s one factor to overthrow a dictator or to repel an invader and fairly one other factor actually to realize a revolution.” ~~James Baldwin, The Fireplace Subsequent Time (1953)

BLAST FROM THE PAST

On this date at Day by day Kos in 2012Orrin Hatch claims abortion is ’95 %’ of what Deliberate Parenthood does:

Sen. Orrin Hatch is a hardcore old-school conservative. For a lot of latest historical past he was thought of a conservative stalwart within the senate. That is not adequate for contemporary conservatism, nevertheless, which is based on being so completely batshit regressive that Ronald Reagan appears like a communist by comparability, and so Hatch has had his work minimize out for him these days making an attempt to placate a base that considers him a traitor to the trigger.

Which could clarify statements like this, from Hatch:

Look, everyone knows that Deliberate Parenthood does 400,000 abortions a 12 months or extra, and but that is supported by the federal authorities. They declare that cash is not, uh, they do not use federal funds, properly, about 95 % of all they do, from what I perceive, is abortion.

Oh! Within the senate playbook we name that “Pulling a Kyl.” Final 12 months, on the ground of the Senate, Sen. Jon Kyl famously declared abortion was “properly over 90 % of what Deliberate Parenthood does.” It was an assertion so clearly and profoundly false that his workplace may do nothing however subject a now-famous press assertion that his declare was “not intended to be a factual statement.” Then, after turning into a nationwide laughingstock (properly, extra so, anyway) Kyl “revised his remarks” within the congressional report to erase the declare, which you are able to do if you’re a senator, and which I believe senators imagine alters the material of spacetime in such a manner as to make the factor not have ever occurred.
