Bernie Sanders Believes Baby Killing is Part and Parcel of Being a Democrat

Published

on

“Being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat,” Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders said on Saturday, February 8, 2020.

At a forum focused on the federal judiciary in Concord, New Hampshire, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked him “Is there such a thing as a pro-life Democrat, in your vision of the party?”

“I think being pro-choice is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat,” responded Sanders, thus demonstrating his lurch towards the Left on the issue.

Sanders believes that “in the Senate probably 95 percent of the Democrats are pro-choice – you have a few who are not.” Additionally, he estimated that in the House the percentage who are pro-choice may even be greater.

“So that’s kind of what my view is. I think by this time in history, I think when we talk about what a Democrat is, I think being pro-choice is essentially – is an essential part of that.”

Pro-Life Democrats pushed back against Sanders on Twitter: “Pretty rich for a political Independent to tell millions of Democrats we don’t qualify.”

Sanders is an Independent in the Senate but runs under the Democrat label when running for the presidency.

Princeton University jurisprudence professor Robert George also reacted to Bernie’s assertion.

“Here’s Bernie Sanders officially excommunicating pro-life Democrats,” tweeted George, a former chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. “So: if you’re pro-life you are unacceptable, unwanted, an intruder. Time to go elsewhere.”

In his response, Sanders mentioned “a few” Senate Democrats who were not “pro-choice.”

In 2018, Senators Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly, and Bob Casey, voted alongside Republicans for a bill banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. The bill ended up failing.

Patrick Goodenough of CNS noted that there is a growing minority of Democrats who hold pro-life views:

Gallup polls found 29 percent of Democrats self-identified as prolife in 2019. That’s up four points since the previous year, although until 2013 at least 30 percent of Democrats were calling themselves pro-life.

Sanders’ comments are indicative of how radical Democrats are becoming on foundational issues.

Even on the issue of the Second Amendment, Sanders, who has generally been viewed as pro-gun by Democrat standards, has joined the Democrat chorus in attacking law-abiding gun ownership.

Moderate Democrats may start reconsidering the Democrat Party altogether and entertain potentially joining the GOP.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
