Caton is right; I would prefer for the abortion argument not to happen here.

258 Charles Tue, Oct 12, 2004 10:48:07am

On the subject of abortion: I do not have a hard and fast rule about not discussing it. However, this topic is a very good example of why I prefer people to avoid the subject — because it inevitably causes hard feelings and vicious fights, among people who are otherwise on the same side, and nobody’s opinion ever changes.
There are plenty of forums on the internet where you can argue about abortion if that’s what you want. I’d prefer to focus elsewhere.

642 Charles Sun, Feb 13, 2005 2:53:55pm

Freedom Fan: I don’t have a specific policy on discussing abortion. I just know from years and years of debating the issue that: 1) there’s nothing left to say on either side, and 2) the debate invariably escalates into personal attacks, rapidly.
I’ve requested in the past that we refrain from bringing this issue into LGF, because of these reasons.

224 Charles Thu, May 5, 2005 10:56:19am

There’s no hard and fast rule about which topics can or can’t be discussed here. I’ve said before (and still feel) that arguments about abortion invariably escalate instantaneously to the point of nuclear fusion, and that I’d prefer (just for my own sanity) that if people can’t refrain from the issue, at least try to avoid meltdown and keep things reasonably civil.
And the same goes for homosexuality; I have nothing against discussing it, but if the tone veers into gay-bashing, then I have a problem because we have quite a few valued commenters here who are gay, and if it comes down to losing a gay-basher versus losing an intelligent commenter — well…
So no — there’s no taboo and you won’t get banned for talking about any subject. Just try to remember that there are people behind all these internet text blocks.

Sheesh. More than a thousand comments in less than seven hours? What the heck happened in here?
Oh, I see. Abortion again.

realwest: I actually don’t have a “policy” about discussing abortion, in the sense of a hard and fast rule. But I’d prefer that people don’t argue about it here, because it inevitably leads to the internet equivalent of a screaming match, and we have enough of those already. There are plenty of other places on the web where you can have that argument…

706 Charles Sat, Mar 24, 2007 3:56:28pm

Re: the scary abortion subject.
There’s no outright ban on abortion discussions. But after years of trouble and strife, I’ve learned that this topic invariably deteriorates very quickly into a flame war.
There are literally thousands of places on the web where you can get into a flame war about Roe v. Wade, if that’s what you really want to do. I’d prefer that LGF not be one of them.

172 Charles Fri, May 4, 2007 5:00:52pm

I should have known better than to try to ask a tech question in the middle of an abortion argument.

56 Charles Sat, Sep 22, 2007 6:25:56pm

And I really do not appreciate the effort to divert this important topic into another argument about abortion.

re: #57 Killgore Trout

re: #52 cbinfluxI just turned it on a few days ago. Might turn it off again. Looks like we’re headed for an abortion fight on a friday night. This could get ugly.

There isn’t going to be an abortion fight, because I’m not going to allow it.

re: #1 zombie

Well, we had an abortion discussion in an open thread a couple of days ago, and it was actually pretty sane, so I’m hoping this one won’t turn into a total meltdown.

re: #411 Caliredst8r
How did “abortion” get into this discussion? Please take your agenda somewhere else.

Yeah, let’s keep the topic of abortion off of Little Green Footballs because it’s so inflammatory.

Charles Johnson On Abortion

Charles, remember when you had “Crunchy Parts?” Nobody here does either. Go figure.

CJ Crunchy Parts

What I find ironic is that Charles F. Johnson is essentially defending Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, an undisputed racist and an adherent to the ethnic cleansing tenets of the eugenics movement. These tenets of racial purity were supported by Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and many others of her time.

Sanger’s stated mission was to promote birth control and sterilization of blacks and other non-white people to limit the populations of those deemed to be inferior.

What’s also ironic was that Margaret Sanger was against abortion as a prophylactic. It wasn’t until her death in 1966 that Planned Parenthood took off their masks and began promoting abortion as a simple medical procedure with no regard to the sanctity of human life.

Yet Charles F. Johnson claims he’s not a racist.

    Just watched a Dick Gregory vid on youtube where he talks about his first child. His wife wouldn’t take the abortive he got for her. He wasn’t making a lot of money at the time.
    He now asks his children not to get him anything for fathers’ day. He won’t lie to himself. He tells them to find a homeless person and give to that person instead.

    He sees his child, and her children, their accomplishments and the joy they bring him.

    I don’t denigrate those who feel they must take the path he narrowly avoided.

    But I admire his personal honesty.

    McToot’s favorite candidate trails the White Nationalist GOP Nazi Party!!!! How could that be??

    And who leads GOP field currently trouncing the Shillabeast??

    Poor Tooty McDummy. He doesn’t seem to understand anything and no one ever follows his political analysis that the GOP are the KKK. Even Gus is more thoughtful and subtle than that. All the known name people like Chuck Todd block him as if he’s some hyperbolic moronic unserious idiot and could care less that he’s on their side doing the gut works.

  11. KGB says:

    The striking thing about the pre-meltdown posts is how measured and rational Charles sounds in them. He must have been on some meds back then. Probably got off them after watching Dr. Strangelove or browsing a Jenny McCarthy-type website.

  12. Chunky's Missing Brain says:

    I think it’s pretty clear that Tooty McDumbth is a characterless fraud. Whatever’s most convenient to pretend to believe is what he pretends to believe. Very popular politicians with huge followings and fans can get away with this. Bill Clinton and Obungle, for instance. Even Donald Trump (he used to be a lib) and the Hilldabeast.

    But Tooty not so much. First off, no one likes him. His LGF brand is pointless. Before it was like kind of counterculture yet conservative liberal coolness. Now it’s like, what a surprise! A barking lefturd moonbat with a brand referencing drugs. And anyone who turns 180 degrees that quickly in their late middle age and then sticks their hand out for money is obviously just some deceptive swindler with no moral center or informed POV worth bothering with much less literally subscribing to. He’s like Russell Brand except with a lower emotional IQ, less knowledge of economics and history, completely unfunny, hideously ugly and fat, uncharismatic, less articulate and broke as a joke.

    • Arachne says:

      Also he really tries extra extra hard to make it look like he’s right there in the trenches with his “Fuck yeah – I’m a Social Justice Warrior!” bullshit. All he does is appropriate other people’s work (which, let’s face it, is what he’s ALWAYS done!) and tweet it out like he has a squadron of boots on the ground operatives and that the stories originate with him.

      Unlike Weasel Zippers, which gives it’s article attributions right up front, before the quoted text, so that you have the immediate option to go to the source article, the King of Cut and Paste puts it at the END, barely, after already quoting the really relevant portions. So actually, there is no need to go to the link. He’s been criticized for this from the get-go, even when he was still considered relatively hinged.

      And let’s not forget the people who have come after him not giving credit. I believe there was a photographer last year that reamed him for using her work without attribution. It’s indicative of the irrelevance of his site that he hasn’t had his ass kicked more often for pulling this.

  13. Pakimon says:

    Of course the sea ice is going to diminish in those seas.

    It’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Study: Waves in Arctic’s Beaufort, Chukchi Seas and North Pacific’s Bering Sea Getting Bigger as Sea Ice Diminishes
    21 minutes ago

    The study does not conclude that the expanding open water caused the bigger waves. “It’s not my area of research,” Wang said.

    Still, it points out the correlation, and includes maps showing the expansion of open-water area in the three seas over the decades.

    “Waves cannot be generated in ice-covered conditions,” she said.

    In other words no causal link. Also it looks like this study was conducted before anyone realized arctic ice is not diminishing. This was supposed to go hand in hand with the arctic sea ice demise. I’m guessing they don’t want to know how high the waves were in 2014/2015. Another Mr. Toot climate alarmist fail.


    What’s funny is there are a few articles out in the last few days/hours such as this from WaPo trying to assert that Arctic ice is still endangered and sounding the warming alarm. They put up excuses such as well, 2013 was unusually cool. Or the ice is more resilient than we thought!! Really? Climate experts forgot unusually cold seasons? Or decreased solar activity? Or how ice forms or melts? And never mind they called everyone else stupid who questioned their sloppy incomplete science and dire exaggerated predictions. And have proven spectacularly wrong and have exposed themselves, as suspected to be frauds, hacks and paid tools of the leftard communist liars.

  15. Chunky's Missing Brain says:

    Mr. Toot will rejoice over this. His favorite Preezydunce candidate The Hillbagster comes out strong against the cops! Endorses BLM propaganda lies in a shameless but predictable attempt to pander to communist blacks (feeling the heat from Bernie, no doubt). In so doing implies the cops are racist murdering crooks.

    Nice guest post at Breitbart by Pamela Geller debunking CNN’s tiresome whitewashing lies about 1001 supposed Muslim inventions or discoveries which are actually nothing more than weak and mostly fabricated and predated by centuries or millenia in Jewish, Greek, Egyption or Western cultures. The Muslims invented music doncha know? Or really, then why do they forbid it? They invented universities! Gotta have somewhere to protest and claim victimhood! Algebra! Surgery! This last might be true if you count beheadings.

    She nails it as usual. Most of it is common knowledge and common sense which we all know CNN is in short supply of.

    With the advent of now daily jihad terror plots, arrests, and attacks, the Islamic/leftist machine is in fifth gear. Teen Vogue, the BBC, the Huffington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek and all the mainstream media outlets are churning out lies, myths and Islamic supremacist narratives to counter reality. Damn the truth, full speed ahead.

    It’s endless, this sharia scrubbing of history. It’s why our children are not taught true Islamic history in the public schools: the jihadi wars, cultural annihilations, and enslavements or why the hundreds of millions of victims of Islamic wars have disappeared from world history courses.

    Many of the inventions the Muslims take credit for are the inventions of the peoples, countries and lands they conquered. The booty from their conquests wasn’t only tangible gold, women, and monies, but intellectual theft as well.

    The first Arabic-language medical treatise was written by a Christian priest and translated into Arabic by a Jewish doctor in 683. The first hospital was founded in Baghdad during the Abbasid caliphate — not by a Muslim, but a Nestorian Christian. A pioneering medical school was founded at Gundeshapur in Persia — by Assyrian Christians. The bottom line: the inventions and discoveries attributed to the Muslim world were actually stolen from conquered peoples.

    CNN, by spreading this nonsense, shows itself yet again to be more interested in politically correct fiction than news. “1001 Muslim Inventions” is not history, but propaganda – and par for the course for the mainstream media these days.

Not wallow around in the mud with them like a thin skinned manbaby.

  22. Actually, as your cut & pasting shows, he was reluctant to talk about the general abortion question – should it be legal? is it murder? etc – because it is one of those topics that only gets people mad. What Charles has been posting about is the underhanded ways teabaggers, dittoheads, and Christian conservative zealots in Congress and elsewhere have been trying to undermine a woman’s right to choose.

    • Chunky's Missing Brain says:

      Mr. Toot has never given a flying a shit about whether or not people get mad. He didn’t want it talked about because he knew he would eventually get found out as a moonbat Idiotarian (now called SJWs) on that an many other things. Which is why he eventually trumped up the whole GOP brainwashed me into being a racist RWNJ comical excuse and burped out his moron j’accuse word salad of dumbth and changed ALL of his convictions 180 degrees within like 6 weeks. Now he’s all talkative about abortion because he thinks he’s scoring points with the progturd moonbat SJWs he’s now trying to swindle money from so he doesn’t have to get a job as a Costco greeter.

And they also are providers of stem cells, etc. Maybe because….hmmm….they don’t engage in the practice of profit?

      And think about this, Droopy Nuts. Maybe someone went to the Mainstream Media to whistle blow on this practice. Like they did with Gosnell. And maybe the media completely ignored it.

      Correct. The distinction eludes me.
      He only wants to talk about how nasty, evil and wicked it is to try to limit the ending of another human soul.
      That the spark of life should reside inside a human host is not a guarantee of that host’s “right” to end that spark and put aside another human’s life.
      Now then;
      Does that mean that as responsible fellow humans if we expect a person to tinder the flames of life, then we are somewhat obligated to help with the added expenses and other realities of motherhood?
      Quite possibly so.
      Or that we should aid and expect help with adoption in case of rape or hardship?
      Or that we should surely allow a mother to allow herself to live if such a life-giving flame would endanger her own life?
      Yes! Yes!
      My wife wanted the baby to take precedence over her own if it came into question. I don’t know that I would and I tried to reason with her that the possibility of her having future children would be …..
      Luckily we were not put in that position.

      “Choice” This is not a discussion for bumper-sticker slogans and trite phrases.
      Life counts. The “choice” is sometimes necessary, sometimes needed.
      It is a choice worthy of thought, not rhetoric.

      As a Christian I believe that souls are immortal, at least as we know it.
      If I truly believed that life ended with death, I would view abortion as an unspeakable evil, sad beyond comprehension.

    We either accept that people are products of their time and don’t have the advantage of 20/20 hinsight or we throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    Margaret Sanger was a courageous women who went up against the Roman Catholic Church and the US Government and WON.

    We are ALL better off because of her efforts

    Kinda like Thomas Jefferson huh?

        Reminds me of Gus’ late night tweets when he’s succumbing to all the Sterno he chugged. 😆

      At least that’s what the brochure at the butcher shop said…

        “Criminal’ abortions arise from a perverted sex relationship under the stress of economic necessity, and their greatest frequency is among married women.”

        Margaret Sanger

        Even she did not want this. She just wanted to limit non white races and unperfect human specimens.

        Who would have thought it would lead to where we are now? Totally unforeseeable outcome/
        deep deep sarcasm

      She beat the Catholic Church? We’re still here. And our birth control dogma hasn’t changed.

    realwest: I actually don’t have a “policy” about discussing abortion, in the sense of a hard and fast rule. But I’d prefer that people don’t argue about it here, because it inevitably leads to the internet equivalent of a screaming match, and we have enough of those already. There are plenty of other places on the web where you can have that argument…

    Like, uh, you on twitter? Screaming tweets from the OFFICE?

  30. swamprat says:

    “We need regulations so businesses do their work competently, don’t hurt the environment, perform ethically and safely without harming the public or gouging them on the price.”

    Should we regulate the abortion industry?

    “Are you nuts!!!?”
    “The government does not “pay” for abortions.”

    So ending subsidies to Planned Parenthood won’t affect the abortions that the government doesn’t pay for.


  31. Arachne says:

    Remember what I said yesterday about a whistleblower on Planned Parenthood? I’m wondering if I was right.

    Cue Fatass attack on Jim Hoft when he wakes up. Also “deceptive edit” bullshit.

      WOW! Just WOW!

      And for you numb-nuts from the swamp who will come over here and try to tell us no one is “profiting” from the sale of “fetal tissue” (read: baby parts) here’s a little preemptive notice:

      StemExpress (the company in the latest video release), owned by Cate Dyer, made the Inc 5000 list (#363) in 2014 and was #35 in their list of the 50 fastest growing women-owned companies. With 2013 revenues of $2.2 million and a 3-year growth rate of over 1300% they certainly don’t seem to be a not-for-profit or “only covering their costs”.

      Just sayin’.
