I haven’t mentioned politics in a while because for God’s sake it’s not politics season but this fell in our laps this morning.
If you’re wondering how an “anti-abortion” politician can advocate for an abortion for his mistress I’ll let you in on a secret I’ve mentioned before.
Politicians don’t really give a crap about the issues they espouse.
In texting to his mistress about his apparent hypocrisy on this issue, public stances against abortion while privately advocating for them when it benefits him Murphy said:
“I get what you say about my March for life messages. I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more. I will.”
Translation: I only say this because the idiots that vote for me want me to say this.
Now regardless of what you think about this deeply emotional issue and not to discount those emotions one abortion has minimal impact on the fate of society.
Unlike say a National Health Care policy.
After getting trounced in the 2006 and 2008 elections the republicans came back from the dead in 2010 on the backs of the “Tea Party” and its opposition to the unpopular Obama Care. They voted a whopping 3 dozen plus times in 6 years to repeal Obamacare knowing the man whose name graced the Bill would veto it.
Republicans used the Obama veto as a rallying cry:
We will repeal this law once we control the House of Representatives… and the senate… and the Supreme Court… and the presidency… ummm… with the right President not this president.
So much like their closet abortion positions Republicans never really intended to repeal Obamacare they just pretended to want to repeal Obamacare so they can get elected.
I’ll let you in on another secret. Republicans secretly wanted Hillary Clinton to win so they could spend 4-8 years “fighting” (campaigning and fundraising) against “Hillarys radical liberal agenda.”
Imagine a political party governing from a poverty mindset.
Now this hypocrisy is not contained to one side of the aisle. Brigadier General Obama said we must “do something” about Gun violence in the wake of the tragedy in Las Vegas. The man who armed and funded terror cells in Syria, Neo-Nazis in the Ukraine, and Mexican drug cartels thinks Jim Bob needs an extra five day waiting period.
Secret agent Double O Hillary tweeted about silencers, which were not used in an attack, and how they must be banned.
The woman who armed and funded Syrian opposition groups which has engaged in Terrorism, genocide and sexual enslavement thinks you shouldn’t have an apparatus that reduces gunshots from jet engine to jackhammer decibel levels to protect your hearing.
I haven’t heard her Husbands take on it yet but it is important to remember that less than 2 years after his assault weapons ban his commerce department was granting waivers to Chinese company Polytechnologies to Import AK-47s coinciding with some $600K checks to the DNC from Chinese Bundlers.
Now if the issue is bailing out bankers or congressional pay raises than they all can agree on that but when the issues involve raw human emotion: Abortion, Guns, Health Care than the strategy is not to agree and certainly is not to “do something” but to give the appearance of struggle against forces beyond your control. Let the issues fester tugging at heart strings of the populace so you can subtly guide a self herded people into tight groups who can be exploited for fundraising (Money) and votes (CONSENT!)
I will say it again, Politics is Bullshit, the driver of societies are psychology and biology.
How much of the core being of who you are will be made available for your “betters” to control?
