If You Still Support Planned Parenthood, You Are Simply Not a Decent Person
The latest Planned Parenthood video is out. This time, it’s revealed that living babies with beating hearts are being sold and dissected.
One might think this is big news. One might think this is the biggest news going on right now. One might think the whole country should stop in its tracks and focus intently on this story. One might think that any decent human being would be overcome by a bitter, violent, passionate anger at these Planned Parenthood revelations. One might think we’d all be moved to do something. Do something, damn it. Do something.
But one is clearly not familiar with how this country works. Indeed, the first couple of Planned Parenthood videos garnered some interest, but the large collection of bored, emasculated narcissists in our culture have responded with an increasingly loud yawn with each successive installment.
If polls are to be believed, Planned Parenthood is actually still a pretty popular organization, and out of the people who saw the videos, less than half now have a more negative opinion of the child butchers.
Less than half.
Dear God, forgive us.
Of course, the media hasn’t helped matters. If you rely on mainstream “journalists” for your information, you probably didn’t hear a single word about the most recent footage, even though it contains blockbuster, earth-shattering news. You’ve likely been inundated with stories about Donald Trump and maybe Hillary Clinton, but not the continued wholesale slaughter and sale of infants.
Social media hasn’t been any better. Yesterday, several hours after the video was released, here were the top trending headlines on Twitter:
“Jared Fogle to plead guilty to underage sex, child porn”
“Did Shaun King mislead Oprah about his race?”
“Deez Nuts joins 2016 presidential race”
“50 crazy things photographers do to get the perfect shot”
“Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green split after 11 years together”
“Dolphins safety carted off field with ACL injury”
