Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress "to kill women." She also likened Republican efforts to prohibit federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is endangered to actions taken by Nazis.
“This is probably one of the worst times we’ve seen because the numbers of people elected to Congress. I went through this as co-chair of the arts caucus," Slaughter said. "In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.....
....“You are allowed to have an abortion if you have been raped or it’s a matter of incest,” said Slaughter. “However, you have to keep a receipt. Did you know that? It’s sort of like an old German Nazi movie. Show me your papers!” [read the link, the receipt statement is demonstrable false -ed.]
Now let's look at a tweet tweeted by one Katrina vanden Heuvel, the editor of The Nation, a publication that claims to be the vanguard of the liberal intelligentsia, but is so rife with illogic and factual errors that one could easily mistake it for the output of a third-world government's propoganda division. Katrina, upon sensing of the imminent victory (not!) of Joanne Kloppenburg in Wisconsin, vomited this up:
Wrong again, Katrina. What do you say now about the "referenda" of the Wisconsin election? What's that? Cat got your tongue? Or are you just choking on your own bile?
