Clutch those pearls, Amanda Marcotte. You clutch ’em real good.
As Twitchy reported, during last night’s debate, Carly Fiorina challenged President Obama and Hillary Clinton to watch the damning videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of fetal organs for profit. But abortion superfan Amanda Marcotte won’t have any of it. No, sirree. Because the truth is way too icky. Instead, she’s chosen to nestle herself snugly in an alternate reality:
Let’s take a look at what she has to say:
As with the August Fox News debate, Wednesday night’s CNN Republican debate at one point devolved into a contest to see which candidate hates Planned Parenthood the mostest. The crime: the completely disproved claim that the women’s health care provider is in the business of selling fetal body parts. Carly Fiorina, the only woman on the stage, managed to posture the hardest—while other candidates claimed they were into defunding Planned Parenthood before it was cool, Fiorina went straight for the gross-out.
“I’d like to link these two issues, both of which are incredibly important, Iran and Planned Parenthood,” she began. “One has something to do with the defense of the security of this nation. The other has to do with the defense of the character of this nation.”
The who with the what now? “Anyone who has watched this videotape,” Fiorina said, presumably of one of the misleadingly edited videos created by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), “I dare, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. This is about the character of this nation!”
But enough about you, Amanda.
How can anyone watch that and not see what we see? They must be blind. Or willfully — and cruelly — ignorant.
Unreal. Rather than being outraged by Planned Parenthood’s butchery, she’s instead directing her wrath at Fiorina and anyone else out there who is helping to shed light on the abortion mill’s murder for money.
It takes a special kind of sick to do that.
