America, You Asked For It!

Political News and Commentary from the Right

Arkansas’ Curtis Coleman has upset the left…

And what’s so wrong with that?

In an interview with KTHV last week, Conservative Republican candidate for US Senate Curtis Coleman responded to a question on embryonic stem cell research with the following:

“Embryonic stem cell research is taking the concept of taking a life and using it to conduct experiments so we can temporarily extend somebody else life. Let me tell you what i just described, I just described what the nazis did to the jews in the death camps of WWII.”

Coleman has proclaimed his pro-life stance from the outset of his campaign, so such a statement shouldn’t really surprise anyone. Though his Right to Life position paper on his website doesn’t specifically mention stem cell research, Coleman makes clear he’s adamantly opposed to abortion and dedicated to protecting the life of the unborn.

Still, Democrats are attacking the central Arkansas businessman. Claiming he’s attacked researchers and Jewish Arkansans, left-wingers across the country have descended on the story like a pack of ravenous wolves.

When asked to comment for this article, Rabbi Kalman Winnick of the Agudath Achim Synagogue in Little Rock said he didn’t think the comparison was appropriate, but stopped short of saying it was invalid. He said there is a contemporary tendency to compare anything one disagrees with to the Nazis and that practice is hurtful to those who actually endured the atrocities of the Nazis in WWII. According to Winnick, such comparisons should not be used in modern political disputes.

Winnick did not take a position for or against embryonic stem cell research, but did say he’s not sure Coleman was wrong to place a high value on a potential life. The Rabbi said he does a lot of counseling and often tells people they can be both right and wrong in what they’re saying. “What you say may be right, but you can be wrong to say it,” said the Rabbi.

Predictably though, liberal blogs and news organizations have seized the comment to paint Coleman as an “extremist.” But, these left-wing media outlets have ignored the veracity of Coleman’s statement as they intentionally misinterpreted the comment in the hopes of boosting Democrats’ chances in a race that recent polls have shown is more than likely to be won by the GOP in November.

MSNBC, The Huffington Post, Think Progress, and other left-wing Democrat propaganda appendages are all trying to convince the electorate that Coleman envisions microscopic cells being marched to gas chambers. But Coleman meant no such thing, and the left-wing rags all know that.

Given Coleman’s unequivocal belief that human life begins at conception, by definition he believes an embryo embodies human life. Coleman insists he’s not against using other types of stem cells for research purposes. He posted the following comments on his blog to clarify his misinterpreted remark.

“We must, therefore, be ever vigilant against allowing ourselves to rationalize our way into unjustly terminating life at any stage. I have consistently and strongly supported stem cell research, especially umbilical cord stem cell research, and celebrate reports that more than 70 human diseases are being treated by this process. I question only the specific kind of embryonic stem cell research that requires human life to be sacrificed by the destruction of a human embryo.”–Curtis Coleman

We’ve all seen images of atrocities committed against Jews by the Nazis in WWII concentration camps. Mass graves, human incinerators, gas chambers, cattle cars, starving prisoners literally worked to death to feed the Wehrmacht are burned into our minds from photos, movies, and newsreels that we’ve seen over the years. But lesser known atrocities were committed in these camps as well, including the use of Jewish prisoners as human guinea pigs for medical experiments.

The United States Holocaust Museum breaks down Nazi medical experiments on human subjects into three separate categories.

Experiments aimed at:

  • facilitating the survival of Axis military personnel
  • developing and testing pharmaceuticals and treatment methods for injuries and illnesses
  • advancing the racial and ideological tenets of the Nazi worldview

The authors of the previously mentioned left-wing articles on Coleman’s comment have intentionally attempted to give the impression that such experiments only fell into the third category. Perusing the comments on several of these articles, it appears the consumers of these Democrat propaganda organizations have virtually no idea that experiments of the first and second category were performed in the Third Reich death camps.

Technically and literally, experiments in the first and second category did exactly what Curtis Coleman described–they took lives to conduct experiments to temporarily extend the lives of others.

Notre Dame Students to Skip Graduation

You’ve certainly heard the flap over Notre Dame’s keynote speaker at this year’s graduation, President Barack Obama, but today a group of graduating seniors announced plans to skip their own graduation because they refuse to support or pay homage to a President who holds such disdain for the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

The problem, of course, stems from Notre Dame’s Catholic roots and Obama’s position on the sanctity of human life in its embryonic stage. The Catholic Church “has always condemned abortion as a grave evil” and condemns stem cell research on the basis that “It is immoral to produce human embryos destined to be exploited as disposable ‘biological material.” These views are polar opposites of the President’s positions on abortion and stem cell research.

Several Catholic leaders have publicly criticized the university’s choice of a commencement speaker.

The Catholic Bishop of Ft. Wayne/South Bend, John D’Arcy, has publicly denounced the invitation to OBama and will not attend the commencement exercises.1

Ralph McInerny, a philosophy professor at Notre Dame wrote “Notre Dame has forfeited its right to call itself a Catholic university.”1

Now the student group ND Response has organized a prayer vigil to be held concurrently with the commencement ceremony. The following announcement has been placed on the group’s website where you can also find a schedule of demonstration events.

ND Response has received official permission to hold a prayerful and constructive demonstration on the South Quad of the University of Notre Dame between 11am and 4pm on the day of Commencement. The students of this coalition would like to extend an invitation to all those interested in joining us on campus on May 17th as we respectfully give witness to Notre Dame’s Catholic identity and pro-life principles.

Obama Weekly Radio Address 12-20-08

As usual, preceded and followed by the shameless ad as Obama continues to seek financial gain from his position as POTUS-elect, here’s Obama’s radio address from last week.

This week, Obama stresses that government policy will return to science based policy, “especially when it’s inconvenient.” He announces his appointment of Dr. John Holdren as “Assitant to the President for Science and Technology.

What he doesn’t say, or at least doesn’t put into words, is we’re going to make a concerted effort to break any ties America may have with those pesky principles associated with the Judeo-Christian belief system. You see, that’s what the left really means when they try to convince you the right doesn’t support the advancement of science and technology.

The left attempts to ridicule opposition to stem cell research, human cloning, and global warming as the result of some right wing conspiracy to suppress knowledge, ignoring the fact that all of their theories on these issues are nothing more than conjecture and reactionary responses. They also refuse to acknowledge that unfettered access to capital to explore them poses real risk of results that would be as harmful as those they envision would be helpful.

Well, enough of that rant. Here’s your weekly radio address by President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.
