Planned Parenthood Anthem

All the world seems in tune On a spring afternoon As we murder a fetus in the womb. Maybe we’ll do-in A newborn to two-when We murder a fetus in the womb. We’ll slaughter them all amid Laughter and merriment Except for the few We take home to experiment. Yes, the sun’s shining bright, Everything…

Abortionists for Birth Defects

In Illinois, quickly becoming the most leftist state in the union, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide supporters, are pushing a bill through the state’s legislature that will make it more difficult for pregnant women to obtain ultrasounds, according to the Illinois Leader via Jack Lewis.

Ward Churchill in San Francisco

A seemingly drunk Ward Churchill is spewing bizarre conspiracy theories on C-SPAN, taped March 25, 2005. He claims that 6 in 10 New Yorkers believe that September 11 was perpetrated by the US Government. He went on to say that he won’t give “white guys” credit for the attacks until he has proof.

Did I ever tell you that, as a boy, I had four ambitions: sports broadcaster, actor, lawyer, and US Senator?…
