Today is day two of the Democratic National Convention and after a day of chaos the Dems are looking for a quieter day today. The news reported that the theme for the day at the DNC, besides "Please Look At Anything Else Other Than The DNC Colluding With Hillary To Deny The Nomination To Senator Sanders", is "A Lifetime Of Fighting For Children And Families". According to the blurb at NPR that means:
Tuesday will feature the roll call vote and how Hillary Clinton has spent her entire career working to make a difference for children, families and our country. The Mothers of the Movement participating include Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontré Hamilton; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland.
Well I will agree that Mrs. Clinton has "made a difference" by generally making things worse for children, families and our country. Just like her old boss who promised "change", we got "change" all right, just all for the worse.
A couple of quick notes before my main point. It strikes me as fitting that the theme for the day separates "children" and "families" into two distinct topics since that has been the apparent goal of the Left for decades, getting children away from their families as early as possible and keep them away as late as possible via the "education" system. In a world that is functioning correctly, most children are part of families and most families are made up of a father, a mother and children. Of course even in the most idyllic settings that is not the case in every example but the closer a people come to that ideal, the healthier it is. That of course is not what people like Hillary Clinton want. For people like her it seems that the least qualified and trustworthy people to raise children are the parents of those children.
Also ironic is that the "Mothers of the Movement" includes the mother of Trayvon Martin, killed while viciously assaulting George Zimmerman, who is a jerk but that doesn't excuse banging his head on concrete, and the mother of "Gentle Giant" Michael Brown who was justifiably shot while attacking a police officer. Their inclusion should tip you off that this is nothing but convention window dressing, "Look, we care about black people", while they pursue destructive policies that have poisoned almost the entire black community and re-enslaved so many through dependence on government.
The real tragedy of the theme for today is that Hillary Clinton and her cronies can declare that she has spent "her entire career", a "lifetime" fighting for children while at the same time making a critical component of her career and her campaign the legalization and availability of abortion services which murder those children she has been "fighting for" her entire life. Only in America, in the Democratic Party, can someone be a strident advocate for infanticide while simultaneously claiming to be a champion fighting for children.
Don't talk to me about being a champion for children when you have the unwavering support of the butchers at Planned Parenthood. Don't act like you have a monopoly on caring for kids when picking a VP running mate with a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood but who timidly acknowledges that his religion opposes abortion gets people on the Left in a tizzy.
Also don't talk to me about children when you were the foreign policy lackey of an administration that has left a bloody wake behind it in the form of dead civilians, including children, who were victims of the drone strikes that Obama loves to order.
I know that most politicians and both political parties in America make a practice of lying and deceiving but in recent history none has done so with more audacity and arrogance than Hillary Clinton and her counterpart Donald Trump. A less likable, a less trustworthy pair of candidates to choose from has never existed in my lifetime. I do know this for a fact, a Clinton presidency seals the fate of millions of children and no amount of risible convention themes can cover that up.
