imageI read the chapter on the Left and eugenics. It was dumb.

That this Planned Parenthood clinic meant for a Martin Luther King Boulevard in Portland is never built.

If you’ve read Jonah’s Liberal Fascism chapter on eugenics and the Left, this might just give you chills:

The building’s designer, Kip Richardson of Ankrom Moisan Architects, said he’s stayed with the project despite the protests because Adamson is a long-term client who’s developing an area where the city has had trouble attracting investment.

“He’s really trying to do the right thing and improve that neighborhood,” Richardson said.

To look at the original story, the builder for a retail space that would have included a Planned Parenthood clinic pulled out (pun…maybe intended?) due to concerns for his and his family’s safety from anti-abortion protesters. The quote above is about a general desire to improve a run-down area, which in Librul Fashishm speak is “step up and eugenicize a neighborhood like a punk ass bitch”. The more worrisome aspect here is, of course, the crazy-ass fundies who are scaring people away from performing legal activities through intimidation and gross stupidity:

Bill Diss, one of the organizers of the local protest, said the effort is designed to remind the businesses involved in the project whom they’re working for. He called Planned Parenthood a “killing center” that targets young girls, teaching them about sex and masturbation, which he called “the gateway drug to lust.”

“They’re up in North Portland targeting young black girls to get them into a life of sex,” said Diss, a science teacher at Portland’s Benson High.

I hate to tell Bill Diss this (kiss Miss Bliss, Chris!), but in general, you go into a Planned Parenthood clinic after the sex – generally the masturbation doesn’t come into the Planned Parenthood picture at all, which is actually a fantastic idea. I’d love it if we could start a nationwide effort, partnered with Kleenex, of course, to get our adolescents to pledge to pleasure themselves (and only themselves) until they were mature enough to pleasure someone else.

I’m also a bit curious about how Mr. Diss thinks lust works, and just how happy the potential Mrs. Diss is – scientifically speaking, how much sex and masturbation do you have to engage in before lust enters the picture? One abortion’s worth? Two? Five?

Unfortunately, Margaret Sanger died before she could accomplish her final goal: genocide dildos. Sad, that.

Lost In The Wilderness

By Jesse Taylor

In the past two days, the National Review has run pieces declaring Barack Obama both Barack W. Bush and Barack McGovern Clinton. Add that to McCain’s propensity to compare Obama to William Jennings Bryan and Jimmy Carter, and I can’t help but think that the GOP has ceased all attempts to find a coherent line of attack against Obama and are pretty much just going to tag him as a guy whose name you can…

I’ll admit – my favorite thing that Bill Donohue ever did wasn’t try to get Amanda retroactively annulled from life. It was when he attacked a Catholic priest for saying something he didn’t like. This is because the stated mission of the Catholic League is this: Motivated by the letter…

I have much work to do today, because Marc and I are moving right before Netroots Nation, and work is just piling up. But I have a post for later today about how to have maximum amounts of super fucking fun in Austin while you’re here for Netroots Nation (or…

Would have thought this would be right up her alley. Last week, Silvio Berlusconi’s new rightwing Italian administration announced plans to carry out a national registration of all the country’s estimated 150,000 Gypsies – Roma and Sinti people – whether Italian-born or migrants. Interior minister and leading light of the…


Not even if the ticket was also a winning lottery ticket

Last night at Wanted I was mercifully spared the ubiquitous Coca-Cola Refreshing Filmmaker’s Award with the guy chasing his girlfriend through the paintings of an art gallery. For my sins, however, I was treated to not one but two instances of this: Fortunately for my faith in humanity, this was…

Cleaning out the toxins that aren’t even there

I’d like to thank reader Sara for sending me some links about the ongoing political hell that is the autism controversy. It remains, to this day, something of a mystery as to why this disease, before all others really, brings in the woo-peddlers and causes so much political strife, but…

A reporter asks John McCain whether birth control should get the same insurance coverage as wang stiffener (the scientific name), a legitimate question about health care coverage in America. Here’s his response: You can see why McCain doesn’t favor negotiating with Iran. Just mention Viagra and you can run roughshod…
