On Tuesday, Democrats in the U.S. Senate blocked a bill that would have required clinics and hospitals to provide basic medical treatment to infants born alive after failed abortions. Democrats tried to position the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act as a radical assault on the bodily autonomy of women and an intrusion of the government into medical decisions, but it was nothing of the sort. Read the text of the bill right here. Despite the histrionics and claims from Democrats like Senator Gillibrand’s that the legislation would “harm women,” all the act would have done is prohibit abortionists from leaving infant children to die painful and unnecessary deaths after they’ve already been born.

There is no “clump of cells” dodge available here. The humans in question are infant children, fully developed, living, breathing, and outside of the womb. Democrats have now declared that even they should not have any legal protections. Even they can be discarded like trash.

As always, the pro-infanticide Democrats have the full support of the media. CNN, with no hint of irony, actually called babies born after abortions “fetuses,” and distinguished them from “newborn babies.” According to CNN, a newborn baby is a child that is born alive on purpose because his mother wants him. A child that is born alive accidentally because the mother doesn’t want him is still just a fetus. The humanity of a baby, even outside of the womb, depends entirely on his mother’s desires.

It will be argued that this bill was unnecessary because babies so rarely manage to survive abortions. Well, if that’s true, why oppose it? And why claim that it is an attack on women’s rights? But, of course, it’s not true. Hundreds of children have died after surviving abortion attempts. The current laws did not protect these victims. Abortionists may not be able to legally execute infants born alive — though Kermit Gosnell did exactly that for decades before he was caught — but they can refuse to provide basic medical treatment to save the child’s life. And that’s exactly what has happened hundreds of times, and will now continue to happen, thanks to senate Democrats.

It should be noted that Democrats also today blocked a bill that would have banned abortions after 20 weeks gestation. Babies at that stage can feel pain. At 22 weeks, they can survive outside the womb. Nobody is surprised by this move but it again underscores the point that the Democrat Party is, at this point, nothing more than a whore of the abortion industry. It is morally corrupted and evil to its core, an enemy of life and dignity.

Michael Bloomberg played the part of a billionaire piñata at last night’s Democratic debate. Every candidate took their turn, battering him senseless until there were Tootsie Rolls and Jolly Ranchers all over the stage. Everyone, that is, except Bernie Sanders. The Vermont senator and frontrunner for the nomination took a swing at the piñata but somehow ended up getting whacked in the process. Bloomberg’s single strong moment of the night came at the expense of Sanders, who, Bloomberg rightly observed, is “the best known socialist in the country” despite being “a millionaire who owns three houses.”

The only surprising thing about this line from Bloomberg is that it’s the first time any of his opponents have brought it up. Leave it to the billionaire to be the one to point out that Sanders is a millionaire. You could tell it was the first time it’s been brought up because Sanders was utterly unprepared to respond to the charge. He sputtered something about his third house being a mere “summer camp” in Vermont. For the record, that “camp” is a 600 thousand dollar waterfront property on Lake Champlain. When I go camping, I use a tent and a sleeping bag. Sanders needs a house three times more expensive than the median home price.

Of course, none of this would be pertinent if not for the fact that Bernie Sanders has made a career out of throwing mud at the “greedy” and “the rich.” He believes himself qualified to decide who has too much money, and where that line is drawn, and what should happen with all of the extra money that people have but, according to him, don’t need. The fact that he is himself a wealthy man — seated firmly in the top 5 percent and destined to make a run at the top 1 percent after his next book deal — is relevant because it speaks to his moral credibility on the issue of wealth and greed.

A socialist who has three homes and $2.5 million in the bank is just as much of a hypocrite as a “family values” conservative who gets caught doing the Larry Craig tap dance in a men’s bathroom. Liberals would, and do, say of the latter that the homosexual activity isn’t itself the problem. Rather, the problem is that the man who’s engaged in that activity is a fraud who condemns others for doing exactly what he himself does. The same is the case for Bernie Sanders. I have no objection, in principle, to people owning multiple homes and amassing fortunes for themselves. I do have a problem with a socialist and class warrior doing it, though.

Perhaps the fraudulence of Bernie Sanders can be summed up in this one detail. Up until a few years ago, Sanders could be heard ranting about “millionaires and billionaires” nearly every time he was in front of a microphone. It was always the same phrase. “Millionaires and billionaires.” But in the last couple of years, that mantra has been amended. Sanders rarely talks about millionaires anymore. He’s narrowed the enemy down. Millionaires aren’t the problem, he’s decided. Just billionaires are. “Millionaires and billionaires!” became “billionaires!” And we all know why he stopped screaming about millionaires: he became one. Indeed, he became a millionaire by attacking millionaires. This makes him the very definition of an opportunist and a hypocrite.

Former South Bend, Indiana mayor and current Democratic Party presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg wants to be seen as the reasonable and tolerant adult in the room. But this branding effort is constantly thwarted by Pete Buttigieg himself. Time and again he reveals that, under the smiling, baby-faced surface, he is a man brimming with rage and resentment towards those who don’t think like him. He is also a moral coward and a simpering poser who wants nothing more than to be accepted by the wokest fringes of the Democratic base. All of these various competing aspects of Buttigieg’s personality were put on display in a bizarre survey he recently sent to his staff.

The “Microaggressions in the workplace” survey is explicitly intended only for those in his staff who “identify as a person of color.” Or, as the mayor said elsewhere, his “staff of color” (which sounds like something wielded by a flamboyant wizard). The answers provided will be used “to inform our white colleagues about privilege and microaggression.” This is why they are excluded from filling it out. Buttigieg realizes that white people are too pampered to have ever experienced microaggressions, whatever those are, and too stupid to know what privilege is.

The document then reads: “In the workplace, have you ever experienced the following from a white colleague?” The possible traumatic experiences include being talked over, left off of email chains, not invited to meetings, or called the wrong name accidentally. The survey taker is next provided the opportunity to give longer, written answers to questions like “What does good allyship feel like?” and “What does bad allyship feel like?” Weirdly, they are asked to describe the “physical environment” they were in when they experienced these microaggressions. Buttigieg also wants to know if there were any “witnesses” to these crimes. Suddenly a person not getting cc’ed on an email has turned into an episode of CSI.

Now, a few things must be noted upfront. First, all of the listed “microaggressions” are nothing more than very normal, very insignificant (indeed, micro) social miscues. Literally every adult in the country has been microaggressed in some or all of these ways. Adults who stew over these kinds of things, and who find themselves so impacted by it that they can provide numerous specific examples complete with physical descriptions of the surrounding environment where it occurred, are emotionally immature to a clinical degree and unfit for any sort of employment. When a white man is talked over or called the wrong name, nobody considers it a racist affront. Nobody considers it anything. It’s just a part of life. Well, the same goes for non-white people, as well. I’m sure this will be its own microaggression, but my response to anyone of any race crying about mild rudeness and minor annoyances in the workplace is: Get over it, you humungous baby.

More to the point, this little questionnaire is one of the most blatantly racist things we’ve seen from any American politician in many years. One wonders whether it is even legal for an employer to send around a survey to subordinates of one race inquiring about the conduct of another race. Certainly, it would be unthinkable with the roles reversed. Just imagine a survey to be filled out only by those who “identify as white,” asking if they’ve ever been the victim of rude behavior from their “black colleagues.” The outrage would be nuclear in proportion. The politician or candidate responsible would be tarred and feathered, then tied to a donkey and banished into the wilderness.

But this is different, somehow. Singling out and scolding white workers is not racist, somehow. Different rules apply, somehow. Nobody can explain how. Or why. It’s a double standard we are simply meant to accept without question or complaint.
