THE GRIM REAPER'S FOOT SOLDIERS
BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID
By: Selwyn Duke
day back in high school, a very interesting English teacher asked our class a moral
question: if you could press a button and get a million dollars, but a little old man
with no family, friends, or ties of any kind in the backwoods of China would
die, would you push that button?
a third of the class raised their hands in the affirmative.
story always comes to mind when I ponder the abortion question. The old line of the
pro-abortion lobby was that they wanted abortion to be safe, legal, and rare,
implying its some sort of necessary evil. Their reasoning always was, Well, we
dont know when human life begins, so whether or not to end a pregnancy should be the
womans choice. Of course, this position was never morally or philosophically
sound. After all, if what lies within the womb is just an unviable tissue
mass, why worry about abortion being rare? Oh, yes, the pro-aborts
arent sure about the intrauterine beings status. All right, then what
theyre essentially saying is that theyll err on the side of recklessness. It
may be murder, you know so well just do it a little bit.
the truth is different still.
militant pro-aborts couldnt have cared less about any of the above.
was simply that pushing the button worked for them.
now that weve descended further down the rabbit hole of atheism and barbarity, the
mask is coming off. New Yorks Governor Andrew Cuomo just recently bloviated about
keeping people safe from imaginary assault weapons, but then in a later speech
advocated abortion almost without restriction. He repeated passionately, Its
her body, her choice! three times.
Interestingly, this political tactic for manipulating the masses was recommended by Adolf
Hitler in Mein Kampf: he said that the average
person had a very short memory, so you must use pithy, catchy slogans and repeat them
frequently. Hey, now we know why talk-show host Bob Grant dubbed Cuomos father, a
former NY governor, Il Duce.
Cuomo the Younger has plenty of company. When Barack Obama infected the Illinois Senate,
he voted against the Born Alive
Infants Protection Act (BAIPA) and inveighed against it on the Senate floor on more
than one occasion. And understand this laws purpose. It would sometimes happen that
a baby was born alive during a botched abortion, and, well, a good contract killer always
finishes the job. So these poor children would be left to die of exposure, perhaps in
lonely, soiled storerooms. And BAIPA would have prohibited this. But Push-button Obama?
clearly had no problem with it.
course, he did say during the 2008 campaign that the question of when human life begins
was above his pay grade. But how far above? Is it that the president believes
human life begins when a person can vote Democrat?
better explanation was provided by former Obama aide Neera Tanden, who said
that her ex-boss really doesnt like people. And, well, people are
people, no matter how small (hat tip: Dr. Seuss).
reality, however, my erstwhile high-school peers, Cuomo, Obama, and the rest of the
Push-button Baal worshipers are simply moving closer to intellectual consistency as they
move further from moral sanity. After all, think about where the pro-choice
position takes us. It doesnt really matter what month one says human life
may begin because were always presented with the same correlative
questions. What week of that month? What day of that week? What hour and minute of that
day? And, then, what second of that minute?
lends perspective. For what we then must accept is that one second the intrauterine entity
isnt a person, but the next second it although I suppose at that moment we
can say he somehow magically becomes one. And this isnt even the
moment of conception, a seminal event without which there would be no development in the
womb whatsoever. So how, pro-aborts, does this humanizing transformation take place?
this logic also applies to the justification of abortion throughout pregnancy
beyond. After all, if its okay to kill the intrauterine being in a certain month,
what is the exact week, day, hour, and second of that month before which it isnt
morally licit? This is a case where when seconds count, the police will never come because
the wrong second deems you push-button prey.
here is the reality: that being inside the womb is a person. And forget the intellectual
contortions the truth will out. If its all right to murder an innocent person
one second, there is no reason to think it isnt okay the next, and then the next and
the next and
well, finish the progression. So is Obamas tolerance for killing
the already born really surprising? Already born simply refers to a change in
a persons location not status. And, note, the same is true of born a
long, long time ago.
brings us back to my question of how the post-conception, second-to-second humanizing
transformation occurs. The only logical (which isnt necessarily synonymous with
correct) argument is that the moment in question is when the being is implanted with a
soul; this is, after all, why Christians say that conception is when personhood begins.
Yet theological discussions would be pointless here because the vanguard pro-aborts are
secularists who, by and large, dont subscribe to antiquated ideas about souls and
sky fairies. They are materialists.
this is why the atheistic world view ultimately makes respect for life incomprehensible.
For if we dont have souls, were just some pounds of chemicals and water
mere organic robots as Stephen Hawking says he considers us. And what could be
wrong with terminating the function of a robot? This insight frees you from
the burden of performing more complex intellectual contortions. Big robot, small robot,
temporarily residing inside a larger robot; what does it matter? Robots are robots, no
matter how tall.
the matter further, note that if there is no God, there can be no transcendent Moral
Truth. Following from this is that what we call morality is just a reflection of
mans wants, which means there isnt really any such thing as right and wrong;
as the liberals are wont to say, its all just a matter of perspective.
And with no Truth but only taste, no virtues but only values, the formula
becomes, as occultist Aleister Crowley devilishly put it, Do what thou wilt shall be
the whole of the law.
is why Ive said that if the leftists moral relativism is taken to its logical
conclusion, the result is sociopathy. After all, how does a conscience compute, fellow
organic robots, if there is nothing to be conscientious about?
perhaps you better understand why leftists behavior is often so sociopathic. And be
afraid, be very afraid. Once the godless left has the power and the mask drops completely,
it may be you who they push the button on next.
