The abortion jokes, that is. For some reason liberals happen to think it’s such a laughing matter. Pat Archibold at NCRegister writes:
“Newt Gingrich’s campaign is so dead, Mitt Romney wants to baptize it and Rick Santorum wants to put it in a jar and show it to his kids.”
That’s the joke that Jimmy Kimmel was going to tell at The White House Correspondent’s Dinner. He didn’t, but only because an ABC News reporter told him that it could “cause the room to turn against him.”
Yup. Jimmy Kimmel thinks dead babies are funny. It’s a ghastly ghoulish joke in which I see no possibility of humor. None. But that’s why I wish he would’ve told it.
I can’t help but wonder if Jake Tapper were the voice of common sense and reason since Kimmel apparently has none. Like Archibold, I wish the joke had been told:
I don’t want this topic of the sacredness of life to be whispered about. I want to see and hear what people actually think about things like 50 million dead babies. I want to hear where pro-aborts find humor in that. I think the more punchlines people hear, the more people will see the truth. And the truth is that many people don’t have any problem whatsoever with the destruction of human beings.
Kimmel’s former girlfriend Sarah Silverman recently tweeted a picture of her stomach after she had a big meal and again later when it wasn’t sticking out so far – like a before and after pic. She tweeted that she had a “quicky aborsh” or something like that. many were reasonably outraged that anyone would make so light of that topic. But I say, keep those “aborsh” jokes coming because in humor there’s truth. And the truth is that many pro-abortion rights folks don’t really think ripping babies apart in the womb is that big of a deal. In fact, they laugh at folks who do.
You know all the creased brows and thoughtful looks that pro-abortion rights folks give when they say their cliched favorite lines like “safe, legal and rare” or “I’m personally pro-life?” That’s the real joke. And you’re the punchline.
When the second generation of bioethicists recently proposed after-birth abortions, it caused a furor even though the suggestion has been proposed for decades a la Peter Singer. Logically, the young bioethicists had a point: if it is legal to commit infanticide in utero, then why not after birth? They argued an infant is no more capable of self-actualization or care than a fetus, therefore it, too, should be equally abortable. According to that logic, they’re correct. The more liberals expose the truth and humor of their core beliefs, the more likely we are to win the argument.
