There can be no debate about the tyranny of the progressive socialist left. Free speech is defined by them as acceptable speech. History is only that which agrees with their ideological agenda, and as “progressives” they seek to erase as much of it as possible. Our rule of law, the U.S. Constitution, has no meaning to them and therefore voided because it was written by white men, who owned slaves. The liberal progressive left can only advance their ideas via coercion, intimidation, deceit, lies, and yes, violence. They preach tolerance, but are clearly the most intolerant. They claim to stand against fascism but desire to shut down any opposing thought. And here is yet another example of their tyrannical design, emanating from the bastion of progressive socialist buffoonery, California.
As reported by Lifesite News, “The U.S. Supreme Court today [Monday] decided to hear a pro-life challenge against a California law that forces pro-life centers, such as pregnancy medical clinics, to advertise abortion. The decision marks the first time the country’s highest court will hear an abortion-related case during the Trump administration.
Pro-life advocates who have opposed the law, including The National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), praised the Supreme Court for deciding to hear what it called a “critical free speech case.”
“California’s threat to pro-life pregnancy care centers and medical clinics counts among the most flagrant violations of constitutional religious and free speech rights in the nation,” said NIFLA founder and president Thomas Glessner, J.D, in a statement.
“The implications of the Supreme Court’s decision in this case will reverberate nationwide, to similar unconstitutional laws in Illinois and Hawaii,” he added. California’s 2015 “Reproductive FACT Act” (AB 775) requires pro-life pregnancy centers to post signage notifying their patients where and how they can receive state taxpayer-funded abortions. The law applied to hundreds of privately funded pregnancy centers. The pro-life centers asked the Supreme Court to hear their case after the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against them last year. The court sided with the state in a 3-0 ruling, saying that the state was acting within its power of regulating medical providers. The appeals court also said that abortion advertisements in pro-life centers did not violate free speech rights because such signage stated facts without encouraging women to actually seek abortion.”
This is so blatantly absurd. Here we have the nutty 9th Circuit Court, who holds the record for most overturned decisions disregarding the very nature of a “pro-life pregnancy center.” It’s about LIFE; what part of that do not they grasp? Oh, yeah, that’s right, if you don’t agree with killing unborn babies, then you have no right to your free speech and position…your position is not based on fact.
Can you imagine a women’s crisis center being told they must advertise for rape and violence against women? I have another one, what if I wanted to place advertisements at Planned Parenthood clinics that used quotes from Margaret Sanger and depicted her speaking at Ku Klux Klan rallies? What if I wanted to place advertisements that evidenced her beliefs being the basis of the white supremacist movement, not just here in America, but that of Nazi Germany?
C’mon, who among you progressive socialists do not see the delusional hypocrisy of this case, and the stance of the state of California? How many of those Planned Parenthood death shops for unborn children are forced to put up advertisements for life? It’s as if the left doesn’t recognize anyone having the right to hold a position contrary to theirs. And to mandate, dictate, that a pro-life pregnancy center, such as Care Net in Santa Fe New Mexico, for whom I spoke recently, must advertise for killing babies is nothing short of tyrannical.
I don’t give a damn about any slick talking lawyer lexicon, this just ain’t right, and it can only happen in a place like California. Furthermore, here’s another reason why the state and local tax deduction should go away. If the imbeciles in the California state legislature along with their governor want to raise taxes so as to provide state-funded murder of unborn babies, the heck with folks claiming a federal tax deduction for such! Maybe the folks in California, and elsewhere, need to feel the sting of their insidious über taxation policies supporting their disgusting ideological agenda. And shame on Republicans for standing up for it!
No more folks, no more taking it from these dangerous and disturbed progressive socialists. They’re telling us, all of us, conform or be destroyed, and they’re instituting a sense of legal tyranny. Let’s stop laying down and just fight back. And again, those folks fleeing California for other states, change your ideology or just stay there — stop with the locust effect of terrorizing and destroying the fertile grounds of liberty, freedom, and our first unalienable right, life. This is not about women’s reproductive health, we can all agree on better research and treatments for uterine, cervical, ovarian, breast cancers and fibroid tumors. What you, the monsters of the left want is blood flowing in our streets, the blood of our unborn children…and the one place Margaret Sanger wanted it the most was in the black community…and she is succeeding.
Pastors, priests, ministers and rabbis must awaken, regardless of your color, religion, or creed, and confront this clear and present danger and evil. Understand that it was Barack Obama who, as an Illinois state senator, sponsored a bill that a child surviving premeditated murder — what the left calls abortion — still deserves to die. What manner of cold hearted evil is that? That folks is called infanticide, yet we elected, and reelected, that as president.
This California law is wrong on so many counts. The 9tth Circuit Court is wrong on so many counts. This is why the Supreme Court is important.
Never forget, you can abort a mission but you KILL a baby, yes, an American baby. Sadly, the left cares more for dogs, cats, whales and baby seals.
