Donna Brazile would make a lousy chess player, or a player in any game of strategy. (She is a Democrat strategist by they way) Brazile has just positioned herself as a pawn in the game of abortion rights, defending her queen, Planned Parenthood, against those “right-wing aggressors set to remake everything in America in their own image”. It was a sacrificial move on Brazile’s part.
In her quest to demonize conservatives, Brazile has invoked McCarthyism, and uses it to compare what Joseph McCarthy did to American citizens accused of being communist sympathizers back in the 1950’s to what “right-wing aggressors” are doing to Planned Parenthood and “women’s health” in 2012. McCarthyism was described as a witch hunt. Is it a witch hunt “right-wing aggressors” are conducting against Planned Parenthood and abortion rights? Well, liberals feminists have been described as witches, haven’t they?
“Like McCarthy himself, they [those “right-wing aggressors”] often pick targets unprepared to defend themselves.”
Hmm. Now translate “right-wing aggressors often pick targets unprepared to defend themselves” and transfer her statement onto a chess board and into a “move” – what would be her opponent’s response to that? Would her opponent crush her right then and there, or would he/she toy with her for a while?
First of all, whom is Brazile referring “right-wing aggressors” are targeting? Planned Parenthood itself? Or the women who would use Planned Parenthood to obtain an abortion? Or both? Secondly, it’s a stupid and a brash move on Brazile’s part to compare “right-wing aggression” against Planned Parenthood, and abortion, with anything that was “McCarthyism” or connected with Senator Joseph McCarthy.
McCarthyism, albeit over played and over-dramatized, involved uncovering and identifying American traitors and conspirators who had embraced communism and were helping Russia to weaken America from within. It was a scandalous affair which ruined the lives and professional careers of a number of Hollywood actors, directors and other affiliates, journalists, and others, many of whom either were not communists to begin with, or had been but renounced the ideology years earlier.
Thirdly, does Brazile ( a presumed strategist) really want to use language like “targets unprepared to defend themselves”? What an absolute abysmal failure Brazile is as a strategist, and especially to use that as her opening “move”.
“Like McCarthy himself, in the name of defending American principles, they [“right-wing aggressors”] seek to bring down patriotic Americans and important American institutions.”
What “patriotic Americans” and what “important American institutions” is Brazile talking about? Is Planned Parenthood really an important American institution”? Does being a pro-abortion supporter, and an advocate for killing unborn children, make one a “patriotic American”? What the hell kind of strategy is Brazile using to win her game?
“And like McCarthyism itself, they [“right-wing aggressors”] will continue to succeed in poisoning our civic culture until America’s broad mainstream is willing to help our institutions stand up to these attacks, even if taking a side invites controversy.”
How does taking a pro-life position “poison our civic culture”? It is in fact Brazile’s poisonous pro-abortion position, along with Planned Parenthood, NARAL, NOW and all liberal feminists who are “poisoning our civic culture” with their anti-life agenda. Brazile is the one “willing to help institutions” which would provide women with abortions and baby killing inducing drugs. “America’s broad mainstream” is in fact pro-life, not pro-abortion. And Brazile “invite controversy” by demanding American taxpayers be forced to pay the cost of “free” contraception to all women. Brazile “invites controversy” by demanding all Catholic and religious hospitals be forced to provide contraception against their moral and religious convictions.
“The effort to withdraw funding for Planned Parenthood [from Komen for the cure] that came to light in the last few weeks was just the latest symptom of this problem. Attacks on reproductive health care are nothing new, of course.”
Ah, the pieces on the board are moving as Brazile keeps making irrational choices with her pieces. But the chess master continues to toy with her; lets her fall further into his/her trap for the sheer amusement of watching her make a fool of herself. So Komen acted under pressure by “right-wing aggressors” in its decision to defund its grants to Planned Parenthood? (Which it since rescinded). “Right-wing aggressors” are witch hunters and McCarthyists for going after Planned Parenthood, for standing up for human life and the value of human life against the real “aggressors” who would not only demand a “right to privacy” in killing an unborn child, but would also demand the American taxpayer flip the bill for the contraception and the abortion which kills the unborn children?
“Support for that basic health care used to be a bipartisan issue, and Republicans from Richard Nixon to Sen. Prescott Bush (father and grandfather to presidents) were staunch supporters. But for years, a concerted minority that is concentrated in—but not limited to—the Republican Party has made it their mission to politicize the issue at all costs.”
The fact that that support, which Republicans used to have for abortion, has dwindled proves that America has become much more pro-life than pro-abortion in the past forty years. Because it is much easier to show the consequences of abortion, to show women seeking abortion there is indeed a human being inside of her, using sonograms – not a blob of tissue or collection of cells – more Americans now have a better understanding of abortion and when human life begins. More Americans, because they are not the rabid pro-abortion advocates Brazile is, have shunned and abandoned the abortion rights agenda. Brazile’s strategy is outdated. Brazile herself is outdated. Her moves are easy to calculate. She has no tricks up her sleeve which cannot be countered, met and checked.
If you were to play a game of chess with Brazile, and she were to use a similar strategy as she uses to defend Planned Parenthood and abortion rights by comparing conservatives and Republicans, “right-wing aggressors”, with McCarthyism, would you play the game with her? Would you crush her right away, or toy with her for a while?
Knowing what a pathetic strategist Brazile has shown herself to be, if you were running for political office, would you hire Donna Brazile for your “strategist’?
