Fight The Propaganda Machine

The Democratic Party, the mainstream press, and the president of the United States are glorying in the contraception/Republicans-want-to-kill-women sleight of hand these days.

And it's up to us to stop them.  And to stand up to their lies.  As some are starting to do.

From "What Would Breitbart Do?":
The saga of Sandra Fluke (now being painted as some sort of hero to women) is a perfect example of why we needed Andrew.

Her testimony before Congress appears to have been very dishonest. Fluke’s story about her friend who was denied birth control pills despite a medical need unrelated to contraception seems unlikely to be true, and should be investigated — it seems implausible that reimbursement for a product that might be used for birth control would, or legally could, be denied someone with a medical need for it. And the claim students need $1000 per year for contraception is just flat-out untrue; birth control is generally around $20/month, and anyone can buy condoms for a dollar each, in the unlikely event a college student is unable to find free condoms, which cost nothing. And it’s not clear who misrepresented her age as 23 rather than 31, but it certainly gives the appearance of having been done to elicit sympathy.

So, she goes in front of Congress and lies, and the President of the United States personally telephones her and tells her how brave she was. For lying.
And this gal lying through her teeth is only part of it.

Another?

This isn't a third-shift Wal-Mart employee living in a double-wide who needs federal government assistance we're talking about. She's a law school student, for God's sake. One who was privileged enough to be able to choose the path she's on. One who could easily - presumably - go out and obtain employment such as to be able to afford the amenities of life without assistance.

Which raises the biggest point: If Sandra Fluke wants to have protected sex, more power to her. (I'll avoid championing the Roe effect at this point.) But I choose to not pay for it. Either directly or through my insurance company.

If she wants her jollies and she wants someone else to pay for them to be protected, get a jar, hit the streets. We owe this pampered lass nothing.

As for the president, the press, and the nitwits who comprise the Democratic Party - as Andrew Breitbart might have shouted it: Stop the lies! Stop the attacks! Stop making fools of yourselves.
