According to White House officials, Nancy Pelosi attempted to slip funding into coronavirus stimulus for organizations that are banned from receiving funds by the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment is a piece of legislation passed in 1976 (and most recently altered in 1993) banning the use of federal funds for abortions. The only exceptions are for abortions done in order to save the life of the mother or because the mother had been a victim of rape or incest.
By trying to include a provision in the stimulus package that would provide funds without the limits of the Hyde Amendment, Pelosi was effectively sneaking in federal abortion funding for elective abortions. Meaning, taxpayers who have a moral objection to abortion may have been forced to foot the bill for abortions done out of mere convenience.
We can most reasonably assume that this was not a slip up, but intentional.
There was general agreement on the Hyde Amendment until very recent. Or at least, Democrats pretended to not want to repeal the Hyde Amendment until fairly recently.
It was less than four years ago that Hillary Clinton ran for president. During that election cycle she stated her desire to see the Hyde Amendment repealed.
This position was still not popular at that time.
Clinton was one of the only modern Presidnetial candidates to state her opposition to the Hyde Amendment. She even went as far as to put repealing it as an explicitly stated part of the Democratic platform for the 2016 election.
Since then, most Democrats have jumped on board. Even the so-called moderate Joe Biden now supports repealing the Hyde Amendment.
This sudden dramatic shift in support over the last four years is one of the things that makes this abortion funding provision seem to be an intentional effort to ignore the Hyde Amendment and get abortions funded by the federal government.
White House officials agree this was an intentional effort by Pelosi. They were outraged, saying,
“Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion which is not only backwards, but goes against historical norms.”
The politicization of every event is commonplace in our society, with this being just one more example.
White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt
The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.
And they did so because of white guilt.
VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.
I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.
Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.
President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.
“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.
Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”
None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.
Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.
America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
