#TexasSpring: Morally bankrupt mob declares abortion screamfest the new Arab Spring

The unruly pro-abortion mob that supported Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis’s filibuster of S.B. 5 with out-of-control, screaming tantrums? Just kicking off the new Arab Spring.

Shameless pro-aborts took to Twitter to celebrate the #TexasSpring ushered in by undemocratic mob rule that disrupted the Texas Senate session and delayed the vote until after the midnight deadline. Late-term abortion on demand, more Kermit Gosnells, unsafe abortion facilities? A victory for human rights (unless you’re an unborn human, natch).

These are the oh-so-brave freedom fighters dead set on preventing the legislature from placing restrictions on abortions after 20 weeks.

The “sound of democracy” or the screech of mob rule? Others joined Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns in promoting the utterly twisted #TexasSpring hashtag.

Great hashtag choice, y’all.

  • Daniel is Daniel

    Shouting down the democratic process because you don’t like it is a step towards anarchy not democracy. These are Bolshevik style takeover tactics not the constructive interactions of a healthy society. I feel this is not the birth of an ever so ironic “spring” but instead the onset of a terrible winter. Prepare, winter is coming.

    • CatHerder

      Where were these infantile idiots when it came time to vote for their representatives? Did they even bother to participate? If this sort of anarchy is allowed to flourish, what’s the point of elections at all?

      • nc

        Whatever happened to “elections have consequences?”

        • BrendaStarr

          Shhhh….. Don’t go throwing their arguments back in their faces! That will just hurt their widdle feewings. We can’t go damaging their precious egos or anything, now can we?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      They are actually showing the colors of a true “democracy.” It eventually boils down to mob rule of the majority that is present. They were disrupting the representatives of the people by their uncivil disobedience.

      I know people keep saying we can’t break down to another civil war, but every day I find that less and less true. I don’t yet hate those on the left, but they sure do make it hard not to.

      • James Atkins

        I welcome that civil war..they will not have guns. (Sarcasm… sorta)

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

          (I know, I just thought I’d let them be surprised when it starts)

          • okieeagle

            They won’t be surprised because they will be the one’s who start it. You may think I’m being foolish but it’s their agenda. Conservatives will do everything we can to protect the safety and sanctity of the Republic. But this flies in the face of the progressive agenda, and they are obviously agitated enough now to act uncivilized in a state room. What’s to stop them from starting another Civil war, especially if, I’m pretty sure, what happens after the 2014 and 2016 elections. They will again, like 2000 and 2004 scream set up and demand justice, which will not come. So, be careful what you wish for, oh, and they will have guns; why do you think they’re trying to take ours away?

        Astro turfing, busing in from other states, unions, all because the voters got rid of Bev and elected a Republican Gov and senate, house.

        • http://ladyliberty1885.com/ LadyLiberty1885 – A.P. Dillon

          It was not a minor feat either. Over 25 seats had to be flipped AND we too the Governor and Lt. Governor. The people spoke pretty damn loud.

    Oh, bless their little hearts… Soulless twits, those pro-murder “protesters” and their enablers – all of them.

    • grais

      And they’re holding PLASTIC clothes hangers.

      hilarious!

      • BrendaStarr

        I know. I guess that’s to show… something? Not quite sure what they’re getting at with the plastic, but at least they’re theatrical and dramatic in their tantrum throwing. This entire exercise would be hysterically funny if there weren’t innocent lives hanging in the balance.

        • grais

          I don’t know what they hope to get at. Maybe “We have no idea what these old women are talking about…coat hanger abortions…but we’ll sit here holding them because…WarOnMyVagina. Did Gosnell use these?”

          Theatrical, dramatic, and very, very Mockworthy.

          • BrendaStarr

            I see plastic hangers and think, “Holy crap, I forgot to hang up my laundry again.”

            They see hangers and think of killing babies. Sick.

      • michele

        I think the reference is to illegal ‘back-alley’ abortions performed with coat hangers.

        • Noah

          we got that point. the point grais is trying to make is that they’re phucking idiots for holding PLASTIC coathangers. How the phuck do they abort a fetus with a Plastic coathanger?

          • Finrod Felagund

            You’d think they’d realize that plastic is made from those evil petroleum products. (/sarcasm)

        • grais

          Plastic ones?
          lol
          I don’t think so.
          These are dumb, dumb women.

          • michele

            well, I was going to add: (which I don’t think would work very well), but thought that it might sound a bit too light hearted for the overall tone of this discussion.

          • michele

            and I’m somewhat of a literalist, so if you ask a question, I tend to answer

      • MissJames

        Little plastic coat hangers that are for precious little baby outfits,using a term that refers to “new birth” . Stupid ,sick women . Not a momma bear among them. God help us.

  • DearLeaderObamba

    Just introduce the bill today and pass it.

    • James Atkins

      Can’t, it was a “special session”, it will have to wait until next year.. OR, the Gov. Perry can call another one.

      • mwill

        he’ll call a new one today.

      • Finrod Felagund

        Erick Erickson of RedState is already calling on Perry to call another session of the legislature.

  • DearLeaderObamba

    Arab spring is an awesome analogy for an event supposed to be pro-women. Just ask any blonde in Tahrir Square

    • Pablo

      The Democrats, always have to murder innocent children. Do the Democrats hate humanity that much?

      Of course, they do want to drag us back 200 years technologically…and yet they won’t turn their frigging computers off.

      • john gill

        Murdering innocent children??? first off, it’s a fetus….and who are you or I to tell a women what to do with her body?

        • DearLeaderObamba

          after 20 weeks, its not just a bunch of cells. its a living being. Try talking to people who are born early and tell them they are not really human beings

          • Clete Torres

            Don’t tell him that, he’s likely to do it. He’s already proven himself mentally malleable enough to believe anything.

            Although, if he did, and got wailed on….

        • journogal

          So it’s a fetus shower instead of a baby shower. Aren’t baby showers given prior to the birth? What do you all something with a heart beat, isn’t that a human being?

          I don’t care what anyone does with their body. I don’t care what or who they put it in, or how many times. yet, don’t expect/demand me to pay for birth control or anything of the like. Take responsibility for yourself. Don’t screech about “tell women what to do with her body,” and then whine how everyone should pay for their $9 birth control.

        • James Atkins

          Ahhh, the classic argument.. “its a fetus”… Lol.. Do you have children? If so, when your wife, girlfriend (yes, assuming your not gay) was pregnant, did you not care about “the fetus” as if it were your UNBORN CHILD? FFS!

        • MindyLuStarnes

          That’s what is wrong with this argument. The heartbeat is evidenced at 6 weeks…how in the hell does that NOT make it a person!! Oh I’m sorry I threw facts at you and you probably aren’t capable of handling that. Just know that under your argument your mother had the right to do what she wanted with her body yet she decided to give you life and here you are spouting ignorance and nonsense!

        • grais

          It’s not HER body she’s killing.

        • MichelleSpeaksTheTruth

          If it’s her body, please tell me, is the DNA the same?

        • Noah

          I assume that fetuses don’t become infants??
          what the phuck do you think they become? a chevy?

          • Clete Torres

            Neither of mine did. But, I was a Ford guy then…

            nyeah. 😀

        • mickeyco

          Well, for that matter, John, who are you to interfere in a discussion of any WOMAN’S body? Unless you’re a woman, according to this response, you have no right.

        • ObamaFail

          It’s a baby. You libs refuse to accept that because you want to hide from the truth that you are baby killers.

        • Panhandle Dave

          Its interesting that the argument seems to err on the side of not inconveniencing someone. It ok to chance killing an innocent human for convenience?

        • MissJames

          Was my son a fetus when he was born at 25 weeks gestation?

    • NRPax

      If you expect others to pay for your private lives, you have no right to complain when your private life gets a new voice.

      • journogal

        Exactly…

    • journogal

      So you approve of Gosnell’s method. No one is taking away abortion, do you not understand that? Roe v Wade isn’t being overturned here.

    • alanstorm

      You’re not very bright, are you?

      The subject here is whether women need more than half a pregnancy’s duration to decide to abort/not abort.

      Why do you believe that women are too stupid to make up their minds before 20 weeks have elapsed?

    • James Atkins

      So, when government interferes in peoples lives, aka Obamacare, that is ok, but when government wants to step in and prevent murder, it’s not. Do you liberals actually talk to each other with this argument? Preventing murder = bad, Government healthcare mandate = good.

    • Junie3

      No, what about the life of the innocent child? Who stands for them or was Gosnell not gruesome enough for you? I just really don’t understand your culture of death.
      God said life is in the blood, at 10 days they have a heart beat.

      • James Atkins

        Isn’t it tragic. They go around and will look at a pregnant woman and not see anything special. The unborn child holds as much value to them as a lung or a liver.

        • Stephen L. Hall

          To remove a lung or a liver requires even more informed consent than a child.

    • Silenttype78

      John, do you support abortion because it may benefit you? When men support abortion I always wonder if it is in hopes that they do so in an effort to perhaps avoid parental responsibility- no matter the psychological damage a woman may endure for the rest of her life for choosing to end the life of an unborn human?
      A few months back Toure celebrated his career by praising his ex girlfriend ‘s decision to abort a child he didn’t want. This allowed him to avoid taking care of a child. I wonder if his ex is as heartless or does she suffer emotionally? Guess it doesn’t matter because he is better off. :-/

      • mwill

        well said.

      • Stephen L. Hall

        I have oft maintained that if they permitted men, in an effort of fairness, to exercise the male equivalent of abortion, that is give them the same opportunity to deny and reject the financial burdens associated with children, that many of those proponents of abortion would suddenly change their tune.

    • michele

      That’s such an ironic statement in the shadow of ObamaCare.

    • michele

      But to respond to you ‘question’ (as it sounds more like an accusation): it is the responsibility of Civilized Society to defend and protect the most vulnerable, being an advocate for those who have no voice. While you may want to argue that that class of people precludes humans who are viable, but have yet to take a breath, there are multitudes who believe otherwise, and are doing something to fulfill that societal responsibility of protecting those with no advocate. While this ‘assault on women’ does have the consequences of slightly limiting the amount of time women have to exercise their ‘fundamental’ rights, that is far outweighed by the consequences of protecting the (even more fundamental) rights to life of the most vulnerable class of humans.

    • ObamaFail

      You’re an idiot. It wasn’t like they were banning abortions. Just making it illegal to butcher a baby that had a heartbeat. Why don’t you libs get pissed over the real issues plaguing our nation? Your God’s bad job of fixing the economy being the biggest one.

    • Noah

      hey guy.
      If you want to talk about protecting women so much, answer this question:
      In 1999 the Illinois state senate voted 99-0-1 to seal the medical records of rape victims from public eyes. one senator voted “Present”. Who was it?
      I’ll give you a hint: His name rhymes with Jarack Ofama. and he was friends with a guy whose name rhymes with “Will Fayres”.

    • MissJames

      I’m a woman and I love life,hate killing ,which is what abortion does. Considering all the females that are killed each year by abortion,I’d say we’re rooting for women. What happened to the instinct to protect our children?

    • Damien Johnson

      vs the Liberals who always interfere in EVERYONE’s lives. And it’s actual interference, not manufactured interference that’s about stopping humans from being killed, not controlling someone’s sex life.

  • Clete Torres

    Children will do what children will do.

    Temper tantrums. Typical behavior for the tolerant, educated left.

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Hmmmmm………….. now what are some ideas to ensure the illegal
    amnesty bill doesn’t get passed in the U.S. Congress?………….oh
    look……….. there’s an idea that worked in Texas!

    • James Atkins

      I said the same thing earlier, if we do not start using some of these tactics, we will continue to lose.

    • ObamaFail

      If being an unruly mob works, all true Americans need to march on Washington and demand Obama’s resignation or impeachment, the repealing of Obamacare, and real immigration reform that won’t screw us over.

  • john gill

    Are you ppl serious???….They want to take women’s choices away……So if a women gets raped,” Oh well “in the gop mindset….Texas is one fked up state…good lord!!

    • TheOriginalDonald

      Not as screwed up as California by a long shot. #TwoMoreWords #MichelleBachmann

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Or maybe the Texas bill just gave women 5 months to make a freakin decision and ensured any decision she made would result in her being provided care in a medical facility capable of handling all manner of medical emergencies……………………

      • john gill

        you should have listened to some of the Women’s testimony, where in some cases,after 20 weeks, things go wrong with the fetus or women herself…and the politicians of texas,……..medical issues occur, sometimes after 20 weeks……..stop thinking that these women just decide after 20 weeks, that they no longer want to have a child..that’s ridiculous..

        • DearLeaderObamba

          incase the mother’s life is threatened abortion is legal everywhere at ALL stages

        • NRPax

          There is already a provision in the law that takes the death of the child and a threat to the mother’s life into account. Reading is fundamental.

          • journogal

            Not for liberals…it’s all about being reactionary and emotions. Reading for oneself is taking responsibility, and no liberal wants to do that. They want to be spoon-fed the information, and told how to act and what to say.

        • Fire and Adjust!

          So those issues occured after 20 weeks for women that have been raped? Because you DID specifically mention women who have been raped and said nothing about post 20 week issues………

        • mike_in_kosovo

          you should have listened to some of the Women’s testimony, where in some cases, after 20 weeks, things go wrong

          You the women testifying should have read the bill instead of blindly swallowing Planned Parenthood’s propaganda.

          If you had, you would have seen where exception is made for the life/health of the mother.

        • MichelleSpeaksTheTruth

          My daughter’s best friend just had an abortion 2 days ago because she didn’t like the way the baby’s father was treating her. She was in her 2nd trimester. Before that, all she talked about was what she was going to name the baby and her future with this baby. I just want to puke and my daughter is disgusted with her.

    • Clete Torres

      How about the choice to be responsible and use birth control to begin with? Nine bucks a month. Not an impossible burden.

          Babies can survive at 21 weeks (now, but the medicine is improving younger fetus’ chances every day).

      So if a women gets raped,

      Existing law makes exception for rape, you microcephalic twit. Can you people EVER argue from an HONEST standpoint?

    • michele

      Have you taken the 10 minutes required to look up and read the actual proposed bill? Requiring a medical procedure to be performed by a competent medical doctor, in a safe and sanitary facility, within driving distance of a hospital, should something go wrong, is not what I would call an unreasonable law to enact. Anyone who followed the Kermit Gosnell criminal case, and all the horrors (a back-alley abortion might have been more sanitary) would be hard pressed to disagree with me. And since many states restrict abortions to be performed before ‘viability’ (currently defined as some point between 22 and 24 weeks), updating the law to reflect these advancements in Medicine (isn’t Texas currently at 28 weeks – definitely on this side of that viability line), is also not what I would consider to be an outrageous stripping of women’s rights.

    • gekkobear

      So when a woman is raped, your argument is she DOESN’T KNOW FOR 20 WEEKS now?

      Damn, I misunderstood rape. I thought it was a HUGE issue and horrifying; not something you wouldn’t even know happened for 5 MONTHS.

      Please explain how a 20+ week limitation means rape victims can’t get the day after pill. And explain the “it was 23 weeks later before I knew I was raped” defense.

      ummm, retard. i’m pretty sure they can still abort before the twenty week cut-off. I would assume that any woman that had been raped and had been impregnated as a result of that rape would want to abort that fetus well before twenty weeks.

    • Stephen K

      I love it when liberals pull the rape card. It was you creatures who told women in Colorado to piss and puke on themselves when threatened with rape, and if that didn’t deter the rapist, to just lie back and enjoy it.

        I typically don’t like talking religion in a politics forum but I am under the impression that most people here are of a Christian denomination or at least not bothered by it, but I wanted to apologise if I offend anyone by speaking about religion here. Anyways, I’m mixed on the Second Coming – I mean, this world seriously needs a good talking to but can you imagine how scary that would be??

        • BrendaStarr

          Yes. Yes, I could. And THAT’S why we need it. :)

    Late term abortions are murder, plain and simple. The filibuster was a victory for murderers, both the doctors and the moms

  • Robin Rountree

    yea and I’ve seen people from Texas brag about people from Cali and New York moving to their state its really not to cool is it you will be blue before you know it..

  • Peyton

    When Texas turns blue? Even most of the Democrats here are conservative. It’s only the liberals in Austin that did that last night.

    Let’s face it. Liberals prove all the time that terrorism works.

    I’ve always been “pro-choice,” but never to the extent of using it for birth control which is ALL THEY WANT. They don’t care about “women’s health” and the sham that is. It has nothing to do with it. They want the ability to screw 24/7 and remove any consequence from their actions.

    When they get their way and start dying off like flies after the latest strain of AIDS or another VD they’ll no doubt “create,” they’ll demand we pay for finding a cure IMMEDIATELY.

    Liberalism: Where actions have NO CONSEQUENCES, and if there are, YOU PAY FOR IT because I WON’T!!!!!

    Brats…….

    What do you expect from the denizens of “Moscow on the Colorado”?

    ……because the Arab spring has worked out so well, you guys!

  • Jerry Camp

    Oh, look…a group of anti-democracy fanatics screaming their support for killing someone…comparisons between #texasspring and #arabspring are quite appropriate.

  • SB

    There are so many choices in birth control for people who are RESPONSIBLE. Killing humans should not be one of them.

  • Cool Hand Luke

    Um Spring ended last week.

  • Lady 12

    There is a Twitter account called Texas Spring…

  • ObamaFail

    If an unruly mob gets people their way, maybe an unruly mob should march on Congress and demand the repealing of Obamacare, the impeachment of Barack Obama, and immigration reform that won’t screw over the American people. There is a provision in the immigration amendment put in place by the Dems that gives employers incentives to replace American workers with amnesty illegals.

  • BAW

    The picture made me wonder (since I never really studied up on the technique) did the “clothes hanger abortions” work when someone was over 20 weeks pregnant?

    • Stephen L. Hall

      I was wondering how many were performed with PLASTIC clothes hangers.

      • Blargette

        I was also wondering that. Notice they are hangers for baby clothes. That is rich.

      • BAW

        No idea. But while there may have been plastic hangers back in the day I bet only rich people had them.

  • Sua Sponte

    So, when can we go into the retirement homes and health care homes and start getting rid of the elederly, medically incapacitated and those who are no longer able to contribute to society…Pretty much the same argument as not wanting to have a child reasons….

    • milly

      I have made this same argument to pro-choice ppl, and some have actually agreed with that.

  • Blargette

    I notice the girls in the picture are waving around hangers meant for BABY clothes.

  • Bob Richards

    My favorite is the “taking back Texas” remark. Apparently these people have never heard the term “Remember the Alamo”.

    • Finrod Felagund

      Texas doesn’t take well to invaders or would-be conquerors.

  • Emily

    It’s always nice when “pro-choice” men post comments to the effect of, “you men shouldn’t be messing with a woman’s rights!” Let’s completely ignore all of us WOMEN who are standing up for this HUMAN rights issue…not WOMEN’S rights. I’m a woman AND a mother so, yes, I know what it means to be pregnant. I also saw my baby at 6 weeks and heard his heartbeat galloping away. I cried every time I read an article on the Gosnell trial and prayed for those innocent souls. This bill protected babies (please, don’t give me that fetus crap) past 20 weeks gestational age. They could live outside the mother’s womb. WHY kill that baby? It is truly a holocaust.

  • ceemack

    Hmmm…in the “Arab Spring”, violent, misogynistic, homophobic anti-Semites won out in the end.

    Is that what they’re aiming for?

  • Damien Johnson

    “Red…the blood of angry women, black, the dark of ages past…. #standwithwendy”
    Aaaand the blood of 55 million innocent kids is just like, non-existent or something? And who else is sick of the “it’s mostly men making decisions on women’s bodies like OMG” crowd? Guess its alright that it was an all-male jury that made Roe vs Wade legal in the first place. Guess it’s alright to ignore that Roe herself is fighting to get it repealed.

  • Damien Johnson

    At the time I thought it was idiotic that there was a whitehouse petition for Texas to secede. Now I understand why.

  • kim

    so if citizens can stage filibusters, why aren’t we all in DC?

  • praymorenow1

    Fluke. Georgetown woman going to a $50K a year school will have to pay for their own birth control @ Target or CVS! Oh no! 28 yr. old women who make $40K a year will have to drive a few hours to get a legal abortion at 21 weeks! Oh no. That 15 yr. old who cannot get a tattoo w/o Mom’s permission , or drive a car w/o dad’s insurance policy coverage, will still be able to get information, birth control , & even a drive to a clinic for an abortion w/o parents knowledge….. Am I missing something?
    Again, not a fan of the mileage limitation thing. Nor am I a fan of some of the ridiculous things male GOP figures said prior to the voting…..(GOP men take a class in how to discuss and answer abortion issues…you all seem to stink @ this)….. BUT, I support a law that will help the life of an unborn CHILD matter as much as a puppy, a gold feathered finch, or a horny toad endangered species……I care that such a law will make a CHILD matter as much as our concern for plastic bags in a market…..or the DVR or what Miley Cyrus is up to……

  • GoodGrief

    I think all you nice folks are forgetting…. It is only a “baby” if you want it. Otherwise, it is a “fetus.” I have never heard a woman say she miscarried her “fetus,” it has always been “baby.”

    Babies born after 23 weeks are considered viable, but the record for surviving preterm birth is 21 weeks.

  • Jim Rasmussen

    Thank you @BenHowe. That one made me smile.

  • john gill

    82,OOO women a yr report rape in the us…these are facts

  • NRPax

    And yet abortions done due to rape, incest or threat to mother’s life make up about 2% of abortions.

  • Clete Torres

    What’s your point, assuming you have one. Do ALL ’82,OOO’ (by the way, it’s actually 82,000, using the numbers keys) result in pregnancy?

  • gekkobear

    And how many of them don’t report the rape or even realize they had sex for 140 days after the incident?

    Your argument is that rape is so meaningless and minimal that they don’t know for over 20 weeks, right?

    Please tell me more about how rape is such a minor incident you don’t know for half a year; but also so important that you must be allowed a LATE-TERM abortion.

    Since that’s your argument, please clarify it some.

  • Noah

    okay? this has what to do with abortion?

  • DearLeaderObamba

    more importantly pregnancy after 5 months

  • RblDiver

    Tell us, in your infinite wisdom, when SHOULD the cutoff be? Should it be 20 weeks? Should it be once born? Should women be able to kill their kids even after being born?

  • michele

    Did you actually read the congressional record to make sure that her comment wasn’t taken out of context? Are you certain that today’s standardized rape-kits don’t also include Plan B? LOTS of assumptions you just made there…

  • James Atkins

    Yeah, liberals would rather give a dog more rights than the unborn child. I thank God every day that I am not one of them.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    I was a ‘kilogram kid’ (2.2 lbs), born at 23 weeks in the mid-60s.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    A liberal, a dog, or an unborn child?
