Anti-McCain Ad To Focus On Incest
Posted by Casey on September 26, 2008
Welcome GatewayPundit, LGF, Freepers and other readers. The response to this post has been stellar. I’ve been moderating a debate today, and hadn’t look at the site until now. You guys have been awesome.
This is a Needs of the Many exclusive. If you see this post anywhere else it is because they are citing my work (which is great, and encouraged), or they are stealing my work. Please report back if you see this post anywhere else without a link back to my site. I’ve been having a problem with theft of my posts … thank you.
A few days ago I was listening to the radio, and heard that there was an ad looking for actors from a talent agency that wanted a girl for an anti-McCain/pro-Obama commercial. Not a big deal, right? I didn’t think so either until the host of the show I was listening to read the contents of the job opportunity. This is a new low for the campaign. Click the picture above to read the job opportunity, and the “motivation” the actor should have for the part.
Casey refers to Casey Hendrickson on KXNT. I was listening to his show when he announced that he was sent this from another listener. I sent him an email, and asked if I could have the ad … this is what he sent me. He said he blacked out some usernames, and email addresses to protect privacy.
Notice the project name is “Anti Palin/McCain Political Ad” … they didn’t even have the ticket right. The actress will also not be paid for her work. Instead she will get a DVD of her commercial for her portfolio. It’s called TFDVD (time for DVD), and it is common in the modeling world if you are a model trying to get noticed.
The actress should be 15-19, and “break your heart” without saying a word. Her role is that of a victim of incest or rape who is now pregnant, and “forced to keep her child b/c Roe v. Wade overturned means no exception for rape or incest.”
LOL … wow! Talk about fear-mongering. There are so many problems with this ad, but that’s common with liberal advertisements.
The president, should McCain win, has no authority to overturn Roe v. Wade. Certainly, the vice president has no such authority. Yet Palin is getting top billing for this job. The president’s only authority in the matter is to appoint judges to the Supreme Court. Any judge appointed to the Supreme Court by the president must be approved by the Senate using “advise and consent.” So if McCain appoints a judge to the Supreme Court who is interested in reversing Roe v. Wade … they will have to be approved by the Senate first, and with a 2/3 majority. McCain has also made it clear that he will not have a litmus test on abortion for judges he’d appoint.
I’m also unaware of any proposed change to Roe v. Wade that removes the abortion option in cases of incest or rape. I could be wrong, but every proposal I can think of off the top of my head would allow abortion in the case of incest, rape or the health of the mother. In fact, McCain has made it clear that he supports abortion in cases of rape or incest. It’s a stance he’s always had. So attacking him on it is literally a lie.
This is what he told the NY Times on his incest/rape abortion stance in his previous run for president.
McCain was asked whether he would reinstate the Reagan era rule that prevents international family planning clinics that receive federal funds from discussing abortion. “I don’t believe they should advocate abortion with my tax dollars,” McCain said, adding that he opposed abortion except in cases of rape and incest. He was then asked how he would determine whether someone had in fact been raped. McCain responded, “I think that I would give the benefit of the doubt to the person who alleges that.”
New York Times, p. A17 Jan 25, 2000
McCain also has a long history of supporting changing the culture of abortion in the US rather than just pulling Roe v. Wade. Although he has repeatedly stated that Roe v. Wade was a mistake. He’s right there. Factually, Roe v. Wade was a mistake because it was an illegal ruling by the Supreme Court who was stepping WAY out of their legal power.
So, literally the ad has nothing on McCain at all.
Palin has a more strict pro-life stance than McCain, and the ad will likely be catering to the anti-Palin crowd. Palin opposes abortion in all cases except the health of the mother. However, the attempts to paint her as cruel are unfounded. The ad we are discussing also blows it here as well.
The ad says that the girl was “forced to keep her child” because Roe v. Wade was overturned. That’s also a blatant lie. No one would be forced to keep the child. There is always adoption. So even if the most strict restrictions are placed upon abortion, no matter how unlikely, there will always be adoption to a loving home. Palin doesn’t believe the child should be punished for the actions of the parents.
No doubt the ad will certainly anger a large segment of the population that is so far beyond ignorant that we don’t have a word for them yet, but it doesn’t change the fact that the ad is full of conjecture based on lies. I hope the Dems are not stupid enough to run the ad in Nebraska. It’s actually legal to abandon your kids there, and a guy just got rid of nine of them.
GatewayPundit has a post up about how the Obama campaign went out and looked for rape victims after Palin was announced as VP candidate.
