RightNation.US: Newsflash: The Left Never Cared for the Handicapped - RightNation.US

Jump to content

-----
There appears to be some cognitive dissonance over "comedian" Margaret Cho's insensitive remarks:

Quote

While discussing her new comedy tour called “Mother,” pitched at her own mother and her desires to be a mother herself, she mentioned her fears over getting pregnant at the age of 43. "My period comes like twice a month. My eggs are jumping ship,” she said. “Seriously, they’re like, ‘the last one out’s a retard.”

“I get worried about that, as an older woman, I don’t necessarily want to have a retard,” she said.


Why is anyone surprised? The left has always seen the handicapped as useful tools for growing the size of government or cultivating good PR, but behind all the superficial and politically correct nonsense they spout about the handicapped being "differently-abled" or "handi-capable", there's the progressive notion that the handicapped are nothing more than human weeds.

I'm not saying all leftists think this way. Nor am I saying all those on the right have hearts for the handicapped. But the intellectual history of the two ideologies paints a pretty clear picture where the right has tended to favor letting them live and the left tended to want to breed them out of existence.

The reason the left appears to be the caring, nurturing side is because conservatives don't believe that handicapped people are "just like everyone else". We believe that they were made by God and deserve the dignity any other human being deserves. That doesn't mean you have to have federal programs and regulations that make every private and public establishment look like Tony Hawk designed them.

I'll give you an example that's near and dear to my heart. Our football stadium got upgraded a few years ago. We couldn't do a thing to improve our press box because doing so would require that we install an elevator for handicap access. As it is now, there's no way a handicapped person could get into it anyway. That's just the way the rule is. Anyone who opposes such a rule is anti-handicap or something.

See what I mean? It has nothing to do with caring for the handicapped and everything to do with PR and growing government.

Margaret isn't deviating from the norm, here. She's being honest. She's a skank, but she's being honest.

Just look at the people who favor abortion for handicapped babies and ask yourself, how many of them are progressive compared to conservative? If a pregnant Margaret Cho were to discover that her baby had a defect, would she keep it?

Rhetorical questions...

I've noticed recently that I don't see many young kids with handicaps any longer, particularly Down's. Seems that the ones I see are in their 20s at the youngest. We groom several cats at a couple of different homes in the area and they are predominantly physically in their 30s.

Well, it goes along with their whole eugenics thing.

Remember when the pResident compared his bowling score to the Special Olympics. The pamphlet with President Bush's head on a handicapped athlete and the caption "Voting for Bush is like running in the Special Olympics, Even if you win, you're still retarded"

I see a few at church regularly, but I know what you mean. I can't think of any at my school, while five years ago there were several.

Updated! World's Shortest Movie Reviews

Captain America 2 Robert Redford, playing himself, gets snuffed. Best movie ever!
God's Not Dead Almost cheese free, an achievement for Christian movies.
Olympus Has Fallen Good action flick, and I really hope the Secret Service found it laughable.
Solomon Kane While it had theological problems, they were rather small compared to what I was expecting. A very underrated movie.
The Hobbit:Desolation of Smaug I'm pretty much out of superlatives, but I thought Sherlock trying to kill Watson was a neat twist.
Despicable Me 2 Keeping delightful slapstick alive. My kids' generation's version of Roadrunner cartoons.
Oblivion Pretty much every sci-fi movie made in the last 40 years but with Nintendo equipment. Worth the $1.50 I spent.
The Life of Pi I'd much rather be stranded on a lifeboat with Richard Parker than Larry H. Parker.
Iron Man 3 Don't be sad, he can make more suits.
Bully I'm sorry, but I've never seen a more clueless bunch of parents and--especially--educators.
Fat Head If you want to regain some intelligence after watching Supersize Me, watch this.
The Hobbit Not a movie. An achievement.
Red Dawn Uh, those North Koreans look pretty well fed. Almost as well fed as the Chinese. Good explosions.
Expendables 2 Someone had the genius idea to film the Random Facts About Chuck Norris. And kudos to Chuck because the film had almost no cursing.
Lincoln Brilliant. Funny. Sad. Daniel Day Lewis should get an Oscar by Constitutional amendment.
2016: Obama's America Great for high and low info voters. Not much new for the high info voter, but some good theoretical discussion. Dinesh is still a punk for agreeing to an interview, then ducking my harder questions.
The Dark Knight Rises: Best treatment of the hero theme ever. Great re-imagining of the Russian Revolution, also.
The Amazing Spiderman: Better than the original. Here's why: Emma Stone way better than Kirsten Dunce. The kid who plays Spidey is way better than Toby McGuire. Closer to the comic from what I understand. No silly Power Rangers mask on villain. I like how they keep him in high school. Martin Sheen gets shot.
Three Stooges: Turning Moe loose on the cast of Jersey Shore? Masterful.
The Avengers: The only word for how awesome this movie is: Dude.
Winter's Bone: Jennifer Lawrence deserves an Oscar for just reading this script. Let's just say don't stray too far out of Branson if you're ever up in the Ozarks.
The Hunger Games: The Running Man for pre-teen girls. But with more stabbing.
Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon: A jackhammer of an action movie. Wildly xceeded my low expectations.
Super 8: Thank you Misters Spielberg and Abrams. The former may be a pinko commie lib, but he knows what he's doing. The latter may be a jerk around artist when he's got years to tell a story. But give him just a couple of hours, and he's dead on. Great, great old school 80s era Spielberg flick.
True Grit: I didn't want to like it out of respect for The Duke, but dang it if those Cohen brothers aren't masterful.
X-Men First Class: Yet another home run from Marvel. It's funny, the first time I saw Magneto's helmet, I thought "That would look great on Kevin Bacon."
The Hangover 2: Um. Yeah. Sick. My sainted wife picked this one. I'm sure the prospect of seeing Bradley Cooper's Magnum PI caliber chest had nothing to do with it.Thor: On par with Iron Man, which means top-notch. Jeremy Shockey is great as Thor. What? That's not Jeremy Shockey? Well, he should sue then.
Battle: LASo, that's what happened on the ground on Independence Day. Seriously, very good movie.
Tangled: A Burkean mix of aesthetics and respect for tradition. In other words, it was pretty cool.
Voyage of the Dawn Treader: Spectacular. Some visuals that are so beautiful they almost hurt to look at.
Tron: Legacy: I don't know why they had to mess with perfection.
The A-Team: I wasn't a believer until stuff blew up. Then I was, like, "yeah!"Waiting for Superman: I haven't been this disappointed since I found out that To Kill a Mockingbird wasn't a documentary.
The Book of Eli: Had the potential for one of the greatest endings in movie history but pissed it away with one scene.
She's Out of My League: Is there a RomCom factory somewhere and can we blow it up in the A-Team sequal?
Waking Sleeping Beauty: I liked the Pixar Story much better. It's basically the same movie about movies.
Clash of the Titans: Yelling "Release the Kraken!" when you go into the men's room is still funny. But it has been funny since the 80's, so...
Date Night: Not your average RomCom. I think this is the movie Alfred Hitchcock was trying to make when he slapped North by Northwest together.
Iron Man 2: Keep them coming. Please.
