Sex Mad: Why the Rightblogger Obsession With Ladyparts Never Ends

"CONTRACEPTION: ANOTHER MANUFACTURED MEDIA CRISIS," said Tucker Scofield of The DC Post. "Operating from Alinsky's Rules for Radicals playbook, liberal progressives have orchestrated one fabricated crisis after another... now they're telling us that Republicans, specifically conservative Republicans, want to take away contraception... And then there's the whole 'insensitivity' of Foster Friese's aspirin comment to Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC! Holy frickin' Moses, Mary, and Joseph people, what is so wrong about what Friese said?? Like it or not, there is still a large contingent of the population that believes in abstinence and Friese's 'aspirin between the knees' comment is a reference to that morally admirable trait..."

OK, maybe Scofield's not the best example. Let's try LC Jackboot of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: "This is a brazen and transparent attempt to control the narrative," he wrote. "They took an issue, entirely of Ogabe's creation and are now trying to create a national discussion, casting republicans as the villains. Only the lying cockweasels of the MSM are capable of lying, distorting and twisting the truth to fit their need to control the narrative something critical to Ogabelini's campaign." Well, at least Jackboot isn't trying to be charming.

At Klein Online, Aaron Klein claimed that "a consortium of progressive groups working with a marketing outfit that helped to sell Obamacare to the public recently recommended that President Obama's make contraception into a reelection issue." The progressives did polls and wrote reports, apparently, and also separately did business with outfits that met with "White House staffers." (As usual, George Soros is involved.)

Klein doesn't explain how these groups convinced Obama to "make contraception into a reelection issue," nor how Obama enlisted the cooperation of the Republicans who've been going out of their way to publicly oppose (and thus support) his diabolical plan. For rightbloggers, we guess this really is a matter of faith.

Some of the brethren insisted it was all about freedom, and not the political advantages of stirring up religious voters. They weren't very convincing.

Longtime culture crusader Peter Ferrara asserted at The American Spectator that the controversy was just a "way to deflect criticism of the Obama mandate" and "turn it into a charge that the Republicans are standing with the Catholic Church on this because they want to ban contraceptives."

Ferrara did admit that "many conservatives disagree with the reasoning behind the decisions in [Supreme Court contraception cases] Griswold and Baird," but understood that it would be politically disadvantageous for them to spread that around, at least for the moment.

And anyway, Ferrara continued, Obama's real target is the Catholic Church: "The Obama administration, the Democrats, and their media allies are really attacking the Church as an outdated institution with retrograde beliefs unacceptable in modern society," he wrote, "...because they literally hate the Catholic Church, for its very beliefs." Other keywords: "Leninist-Stalinist," "Hugo Chavez," "Obamunism," "henchwoman Kathleen Sebelius (the perfect villainess, taken right out of Ayn Rand central casting)."

Peter Wehner of The American Interest claimed, "I am neither Catholic nor Evangelical... I have no dog in this fight." Nonetheless, the frequent National Review contributor agreed with the bishops and blamed Obama's policy on his "captivity to his much-vaunted 'base,' with its strongly secularist contingent" and the President's alleged belief that "religion is a virus to be kept out of public space, quarantined in religious reservations."

Also, though neither Catholic nor Evangelical, Wehner was optimistic that "contraception in and of itself (that is, apart from the defense of religious freedom) will continue to be a bonding issue between the two communities." After reminiscing about old times with rightwing Catholic convert Father John Neuhaus, Wehner attacked again "aggressive secularism," and further hoped that "the enthusiastic response of many Evangelicals to the Catholic Rick Santorum may be a significant sign of this shift." That dog's looking pretty banged up for one that isn't in a fight.

More explicitly religious angles were also considered, as in Tom O'Toole's Renew America post:

Having just finished re-reading Bud Macfarlane's Pierced by a Sword, his classic 1995 novel of Catholic apocalyptic apologetics, I am struck by how much his prophecy comes into play in the 2012 presidential election. For if Michael D. O'Brien's novel Father Elijah correctly predicted the increased promotion of abortion and loss of religious liberty the election of an Obama-esque president would bring, a "Pierced" Romney-like character shows that going from a lying, smiling socialist to a smiling, lying Mormon is like going from, well, the frying pan into the lake of fire. But if John Lanning escaped the flames (if not martyrdom) perhaps Pierced says there's still hope for us (and the US) too...
The upshot: "We can be spared the Tribulation by prayer, fasting...and Santorum."

The Catholic Knight offered a video featuring one Michael Voris, who details the struggle to de-criminalize contraception in the Philippines "as the birth control mandate controversy still rages on in the United States."

Legal contraception in The Philippines is of course opposed by "faithful Catholics," Voris tells us, because they are aware of the "moral corruption that will follow in the wake of legalizing birth control here." This is proven, he explains, by the words of Pope Paul VI, which predicted both "Obama's evil mandate" and the sink of immorality that is America today.

"Moral standards have been lowered so much that morality itself is now seen as sort of strange and outdated," Voris continues. "In the space of just fifty years -- fifty years! -- the fabric of American society has been ripped apart, and it is owing to contraception. And as an aside, for a person like Obama, who wants to continue the remaking of America, contraception is his perfect weapon."

Also, "more people having more sex means more pregnancies, contraception or not, and many of those new lives will end suddenly and painfully in abortion chambers," said Voris. "How can anyone seriously defend contraception and birth control as legitimate?"

"Catholic teaching" is presented as the only chance for The Philippines -- and for the U.S.: "If Catholics in America, including the leaders, can find the vigor to announce this convincingly," says Voris, "then there might still be a sliver of hope for the West."

It'd all just be funny if they were operating in isolation, but there are plenty of Republican politicians who are holding the old standard aloft, too.

Last week seven state attorneys general filed a lawsuit against the HHS provision. The Utah House of Representatives has passed a bill banning any mention of contraception in sex education classes.

And at last week's Republican Presidential debate, moderator John King asked about the contraception issue, for which he was rewarded with booing from the audience -- and fifteen minutes of discussion of contraception by the candidates.

Boston Catholic Insider attacked Romney for claiming in the debate that "there was no requirement in Massachusetts for the Catholic Church to provide morning-after pills to rape victims." BCI provided detailed analysis -- including advisement from "a constitutional law expert advising BCI" -- to show that Romney was lying. They closed, "BCI hopes that the media and other candidates call him out on this" -- that is, that Romney required Catholic hospitals to offer the morning-after pill to rape victims. Then people will turn against him for sure as a rape-victim coddler.

Newt Gingrich turned attention to Barack Obama's alleged vote for "legalizing infanticide" and the alleged refusal of the "elite media" to report it -- which claims, no shock, are bullshit, but which excited Peter Wehner of Commentary, who claimed "many journalists, leaning very much to the left on social issues, are more offended when candidates express personal objections to contraception than when candidates oppose laws against infanticide."

Ever-reliable Rick Santorum suggested that access to contraception had caused an increase in out-of-wedlock births, and was rewarded by a surge in GOP Presidential polling.

As above, so below. if you're a fan of this sort of thing, don't worry -- there'll be no end of it, through the election and beyond.

Daring Prediction: the more the economy recovers, & the sadder & more clueless the GOP nominees look, the more strenuously wingnuts will foam at the mouth over the dire threats to civilization that are contraception & safe, legal abortion.

Wanna know exactly why the GOP is always acting so ridiculously freaked out about sex? Google "armchairsubversive" (it's a blogspot joint) ... but don't say I didn't warn you: strong anti-depressants, Gravol & a sturdy barf-bag are all highly recommended.

"At Impacting Culture, Tara Stone invented a Socratic dialogue in which Socrates argued that in the pursuit of sexual pleasure, "passions have enslaved or oppressed [a person's] free will"; also, as "pleasure can be the only end of a contracepted sexual act," it objectifies the other party; therefore, "contraception, then, must also be the opposite of liberty," that is, slavery."

Tara, the Hague called, they're indicting you for crimes against logic.

By the way, Pierced by the Sword contains characters rejected from the Left Behind series for being too Catholic. I'm not making this up: 

"Nathan Payne A troubled young securities broker from Chicago. Will Nathan find the faith to win the love of Joanie Wheat – a woman of deep Catholic convictions?

Becky Macadam A stunningly beautiful young woman, away from the faith since childhood, alone and pregnant in the heartless city of Chicago.

Father Chet Sulivan A fast-talking young priest from New Jersey with a penchant for getting into trouble.

Tom Wheat The foremost U.S. expert on Marian Apparitions, desperately trying to warn the world about The Coming Tribulations. Can Wheat reach the country in time?

Lee Washington A drug dealer from Cleveland, living in the fast lane in L.A. Will he keep his appointment with Our Lady?

Pope Patrick A no-nonsense Irish Pope who drives his own car and travels in disguise, unaware that there is a bounty on his head...

Joe Jackson A soft-spoken, shy, former NFL football star from Louisiana."

Between the Negro Black Colored who's dealing drugs to the Virgin Mary and the Oirish Pope who drives in drag (but not because there's a bounty on his head), the parallells to 2012 are uncanny.

I wondered about that too. Also, "Ogabelini." Is it just another word for Obama (like Obammy, Odumbo, etc.) or an actual person? I was going to ask, but didn't want to appear ignorant. Fortunately, Glenn took the hit for me.

That Tara Stone PLEASURE IS SLAVERY thing is really something else. (Part One gets the insanity going.) Imagining yourself as Socrates enlightening your own fawning Glaucon is the ultimate "you shoulda heard what I said to this stoopid liberal" fantasy. Stone is an MBA candidate at John Paul the Great Catholic University (a venerable old school from 2006 which seems to be the Catholic answer to Falwell and Bob Jones), and this looney dialogue really doesn't make her college look very good.

I really wish more of these people got laid once in a while because this stuff is just nuts.

 Dating may sound like a depressing chore When you have herpes. You may be afraid that you will frighten a possible partner away whenever you tell them you've herpes. But having herpes is not the end of the world. I found my boyfriend and many good friends on   herpesdateonline.c(0)m, a dating site for people living with herpes. Good luck to you all!

Also, "more people having more sex means more pregnancies, contraception or not, and many of those new lives will end suddenly and painfully in abortion chambers," said Voris. "How can anyone seriously defend contraception and birth control as legitimate?"

How, indeed.  Apparently contraception actually causes pregnancy, rather than preventing it.  Does Obama's evil know no bounds?

Once again, just when you think that peak wingnut is within reach, the bastards turn the crazy up to 11, and beyond.  Like someone said, these people think "The Handmaid's Tale" is not a cautionary tale, but rather an instruction manual.

What a circus. Republicans condemn condoms! Republicans praise rape as a gift from God. Republicans endorse trans-vaginal probes. Republicans hate women (and men who want to plan their families). What’s next? Republicans mandate missionary-position only? Hey, Newt was right. ‘Cause Newt and all his Republican friends SHOULD set up a moon colony.... AND GO THERE! Then, they could tell each other what to do and how to live and who to love.... while leaving the REST of us alone, here on Earth. Newt, I always KNEW that you were a problem-solver. Unfortunately, you and your Republican friends ARE the problem...

By all means, conservatives, keep up this line of attack, I think it'll be a real winner with women voters.
