I’ve expressed my thoughts on Herschel Walker and some of the celebrity candidates and vanity projects who may lose the Senate this cycle before. But what’s really shameless are the media operatives belonging to the “Abortion is a Sacrament” party waxing self-righteous.
No one takes a backseat to “pro-choice pastor” Raphael Warnock on abortion.
The Democrats’ “Abortion for All Act” would “enshrine into federal law abortion on demand until the moment of birth” and prevent states from “protecting children from abortion based on their sex, race,” or even for simply being diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Despite 85 percent of Americans wanting limits on abortion and 80 percent believing that third-trimester abortions should be illegal, Raphael Warnock voted to remove any limits on abortions.
Obviously, the media doesn’t believe abortion is wrong. Abortion is getting the gay rights treatment where the media focused on ‘outing’ Republicans who were allegedly gay. The issue was supposedly the hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is an easy enough ‘own’. Especially in matters of vice. It’s not a non-issue, but upholding the abuse as a normative state itself is a good deal worse. Double standards are corrosive, but they’re still better than no standards.
Democrats and their media have spent two generations asking Republicans if they would sign off on an abortion if their daughter got pregnant. Democrats opposed to the death penalty or gun ownership were not similarly asked if they would pull the trigger on a serial killer who had just massacred a bus full of nuns. But the question is worthless either way.
The measure of whether an act is right or wrong isn’t whether someone engages in it. Morality is not invalidated by deviations. Rather it demonstrates why morality is necessary.
Hypocrisy, the difference between private and public morals, undermines morality, but it’s a far lesser threat than those who would eliminate it entirely.
