For The Dead Fish Wrapper, Abortion Is A Civil Right

As anybody who hasn't been living under a rock for the past 40 years know, abortion is one of the most sacred cows of the liberal left and the Oregonian (but I repeat myself).  Any restrictions on abortions cause murderous screams of anger from the left, because they can't stand to have someone tell them they can't murder their unborn children.  There isn't much gray area there.  This screaming and anguish is continued in the editorial from Novermber 9th, and the title says it all: "An unacceptable cutback in access to abortion".

Health care reform should not be pursued as a mission so impossible that it justifies restricting women's access to abortion.

That, however, is exactly what the House did Saturday night in passing the most significant health care overhaul in 44 years. The legislation was historic, but at what price? It was amended at the last minute with antiabortion provisions so restrictive that they would undermine the civil rights of American women.

Editors Walk Out On Any Logic About Global Warming

The Fish Wrapper editors have shown in the past that they like to follow lock-step with the global warming/climate change hysteria/religion, and they continue their path with the latest editorial perpetuating the global warming hype, "Walking Out on Global Warming".

The main thrust of the editorial is that as usual, the U.S. needs to be a leader in climate change legislation that would trash our economy while major polluters such as Inda and China continue growing their economies.  And, of course, if we don't, the world will come to an end because of climate catastrophes.

The whole world saw a jarring, embarrassing contrast in leadership this week: There was German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressing a joint session of the Congress and pleading for U.S. action to combat climate change "in the interest of our children and grandchildren."

And there were Republican senators shunning a key committee meeting on climate change, literally walking away from their responsibilities to address the greatest environmental challenge facing the world.

DFW Editors Blind To Needs Of Child

By now, the story of Baby Gabriel Brandt is well known around Oregon.  Gabriel was put into foster care by the state when he was 4 months old.  His mother pled guilty to felony drug charges but then fled before sentencing, and is nowhere to be found.  His father, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was released from Oregon prison last month after serving time on drug charges. He had also been twice convicted of attempted first-degree rape involving a child.  So the parental rights of both parents had been officially severed by the state, and Gabe had been given to Steve and Angela Brandt as a foster child.  The Brandts were told that they had a good chance to adopt Gabe.

More Hypocrisy From Fish Wrapper On Falwell

Since the recent death of Jerry Falwell, the wackos on the left and their compatriots in the liberal media have been, as expected, taking their shots at Jerry Falwell. The Daily Dead Fish Wrapper jumps right in with an editorial about Falwell.

It actually starts out in a pretty straightforward manner.

Bias On Display In Favor Of Murdering Children

On Wednesday (4/18/07) the Supreme Court upheld the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 by a vote of 5-4. This law bans a very gruesome form of late term abortion where, as described to the judge in National Abortion Federation vs. Ashcroft

the physician grasps the fetus's lower extremity with fingers or forceps and pulls the fetus through the cervix and vagina until its head is lodged in the cervical opening. At this point, the fetus's arms and legs have been delivered outside the uterus while the fetus is still alive. With the fetus's head lodged in the cervix, the physician punctures the skull with scissors or crushes the head with forceps.... The physician then drains the fetus's skull by suction, or by using a finger, and the skull collapses.

Editors Display Ignorance on Knowledge of Familiy Stability

In one of their latest editorials on the liberal push to cirumvent the wish of Oregon's voters in regards to same sex marriages, the Fish Wrapper editors continue to push the lie that these bills would strenghen gay and lesbian families.

Most of the piece rehashes the testimony from the legislaitve hearings this past Monday on Senate Bill 2 and House Bill 2007. These bills would create special rights for homosexuals and also come as close as possible to creating gay marriage in spite of the passage of Measure 36 in 2004 by a large margin.

Fish Wrapper Twists Court Ruling To Fit Global Warming Hype Agenda

The editors of the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper are at it again on one of their favorite topics, global warming. In today's editorial, they also employ the usual tactic of twisting an event to suit their pre-determined opinion. In this case, the title "The air clears on climate change" is very misleading because it applies to a case about the regulatory powers of the EPA.

The purpose of the article is the recent Supreme Court ruling in a case where the issue was whether the EPA had the authority to regulate carbon dioxide emissions. According to the title, you would think that the ruling provided definitive scientific evidence of anthropogenic global warming (and exactly when was the last time that judges were scientific experts?). Instead, it was just 12 states getting the liberal wingnuts of the Supreme Court to go along with them and try to force the administration to hamstring our economy.

Fish Wrapper Praises Congress For Violating Constitution

On and on the liberal cowardice goes at the Fish Wrapper, and so does the selective listening. Today's example of this is an editorial by the Fish Wrapper about Congress's cowardice in the passing of the emergency spending bills with stipulations on a timetable for pulling troops out of Iraq as well as $21 billion in pork spending. But that's conveniently not the point. The point is that Congress is putting it's (pork) foot down.

Fish Wrapper Ignores Dems Pork Overflow in Emergency Spending Bill For Troops

The Dead Fish Wrapper editorial board never ceases to amaze me with their ability to filter out relevant information in order to show only the liberal side of an issue, and today they give a classic example. The issue in the editorial is HR 1592, the cowardly pork-laden funding resolution from the U.S. House that provides $103 billion in funding for the military in Afghanistan and Iraq, but also calls for complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq by August of 2008, and is also laden down with an additional $21 billion in pork spending by Democrats.
