Bishop Holley should relax. First, this isn’t about race. It’s about class. It just so happens that minority women tend to live in under-served neighborhoods. Going back to the days of Margaret Sanger, the mission has never been to “target” minorities. No. The mission is to ease the burden on the most vulnerable women. Poor women, minority women, women without ready access to health care, women so ignorant that they need someone to tell them that abortion is in their own self-interest. Was it Joe Biden who plagiarized that African-Americans are “poor, uneducated, and easy to command?” Well, it turned out that the suspicious Negroes didn’t trust white women like Sanger. Towards this end, Sanger reached out to African-American clergymen. Suspicious Negroes might not trust white women, but they would follow their unsuspecting preachers. Didn’t Bishop Holley get the memo?
Of course, Sanger was not telling African-American preachers to lead African-American women to the abortion clinic. She just wanted them to practice birth control. But sometimes there is contraceptive failure, which leads to products of conception, which is also known as a fetus, but which should never be referred to as a child. A child is a human person under our Constitution. An African-American fetus is not. A child, being a human person, created in the image and likeness of God, possesses God-given rights, which are recognized by our Constitution. An African-American fetus is not a human person under our Constitution (not even 3/5 of a person), and therefore, has no rights in need of protection.
Does Bishop Holley’s use of a pejorative like “child” serve the
interests of African-American women? It is quite clear that
Bishop Holley has never studied the Constitution, much less
lectured on Constitutional Law. But none of this matters now,
because we have President Obama to show us the way.

What’s bizarre and, at least to me, spiritually and socially perverse, is that abortionist-in-chief Barack Obama promotes genocide against the very community to which Obama has tried so long to belong. And the very one that supported him, voting statistically impossible numbers in the general election, and reveres him.
Given that the black population is about 13 percent or so of the total population, Obama helps kill them off at hideous rate. And they and their purported leaders say nothing about it?
If his active promotion of abortion — and if the
Democrats’, liberals’ and leftists’ similarly active promotion of
abortion — is not racist and evil, what then will ever be?

HOLLYWOOD TO THE RESCUE
Will we solve our problems? We really could.
Let’s set our sights on Hollywood.
If it’s money that’s needed, the glittering stars
Who fly private jets, drive designer cars,
Should be willing, yea eager! to empty their purses.
Perhaps they’re too busy bringing down curses
On the heads of we smaller folk who pay our fair share,
But we don’t breathe their same special rarified air.
They are important. With industry they are one.
They manufacture the goods that make the country run.
They design planes and ships. They punch time clocks.
Their grasp of the financial markets rocks.
They grow the food on which we subsist.
They perform medical miracles and they insist
Without their guidance army General Petraeus
Would surely flounder and then betray us.
So we look to the stars with hope and good cheer,
Rejoicing in the knowledge that salvation is near.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
