VIDEO: ‘Abortion Extremist’ Hillary Clinton Has No Limits

WASHINGTON, D.C. /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — American Values Action released a video today noting an issue on which the media has been mostly silent – Hillary Clinton’s abortion extremism as seen in her own words.

AVA Senior Fellow Dr. Charmaine Yoest noted a profound difference between the Democratic nominee for president and Republican Donald Trump on the life issue.

“The reality is that Hillary Clinton supports abortion through all nine months of pregnancy up to the moments before birth,” said Yoest. “While the media is busy taking a joke Donald Trump made at a rally over a crying baby into national news, they are avoiding any reporting on Hillary Clinton’s abortion extremism. Hillary Clinton’s stance in favor of abortion rights is well known, but less well-known is just how extreme and unlimited her advocacy of abortion is. American Values Action is releasing a video today to make it easy to quickly educate on her record of promoting unfettered abortion – a position she has held over her entire lifetime.”

The approximately one-minute video highlights four issues: Clinton’s belief in expanding taxpayer funding for abortion; her stunning statement that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs have to be changed;” her assertion that unborn babies have no constitutional rights whatsoever; and her repeated commitment to appoint only pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court.

“Make no mistake: when Hillary Clinton says religious beliefs have to be changed — she means mainstream American voter’s deeply held religious beliefs, not hers,” said Yoest. “On the issue of life and the kind of justices who will be appointed to the Supreme Court, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are directly opposite. This will be a mobilizing issue as more religious voters are educated about her record of abortion extremism.”

ABOUT AMERICAN VALUES ACTION

American Values Action is headed by former presidential candidate Gary Bauer, a well-known national conservative leader who served in the Reagan Administration, as under secretary of education and as President Reagan’s chief domestic policy advisor. The Guardian called Bauer “one of the leading campaigners in the U.S. on pro-life and pro-traditional family issues.”

Another Muslim Murders Police Official: Authorities Rush to Defend Islam

In FrontPage today, I chronicle just another day in the suicidal West.

Last week a fifteen-year-old Muslim, Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad, went to a police station in New South Wales and shot dead a civilian police employee, Curtis Cheng. After the murder, the young murderer was, according to an eyewitness, “dancing joyously.” Outside the station, he waved his gun at police and screamed “Allahu akbar” at them before he was killed in the ensuing gunfight.

In the wake of this jihad murder, Australian officials have behaved in an utterly predictable manner – one that we have seen many, many times before in Western countries, and that we will doubtless see many more times as well: they rushed to profess ignorance of the killer’s motives and above all, to defend Islam.

None of these officials are Muslims. They have all just been thoroughly indoctrinated with the idea that to look too closely at the motivating ideology behind murders like that of Curtis Cheng would be “hateful” and “bigoted.”

And so Pat Gooley from the New South Wales Police Association said: “We are used to being under threat. What’s really concerning police is there’s no rhyme or reason to these current terror threats.”

No rhyme or reason? Have you ever heard of jihad, Mr. Gooley? Evidently not.

Other police officials, meanwhile, made themselves busy ensuring that Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad’s jihad murder doesn’t lead anyone to think there is anything amiss with the Muslim community. The murder “was doubly shocking because it was perpetrated by a 15-year-old boy and it underlines the importance of families, communities, leaders being very aware of whether young people are becoming radicalised,” said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, complacently assuming that Muslim “families, communities, leaders” in Australia are against this “radicalization” — but where is the evidence of that?

Turnbull also said: “We must not vilify or blame the entire Muslim community with the actions of what is, in truth, a very, very small percentage of violent extremist individuals. The Muslim community are our absolutely necessary partners in combating this type of violent extremism.”

When has the Muslim community in Australia or elsewhere in the West genuinely acted like partners in combating this type of violent extremism? And we must indeed not vilify or blame the entire Muslim community, but can we not call upon them to institute honest, transparent and inspectable programs in mosques and Islamic schools that teach against this understanding of Islam that they ostensibly reject and oppose?

Meanwhile, opposition leader Bill Shorten said: “Our thoughts are also with the family of the alleged young perpetrator. Like all Australians, they will be struggling to comprehend how someone so young could be part of such a terrible crime.” How does he know his family wasn’t involved? Has he carried out an investigation? He assumes that the family taught young Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad the true, peaceful Islam, but that he was then “radicalized on the Internet” — but why was his family’s true, peaceful Islam not able to withstand the challenge from the twisted, hijacked Internet Islam?

New South Wales Premier Mike Baird said that he and others were trying to understand “how someone so young could commit such a hideous crime.” He might wish to look into Islam’s teachings about jihad, but he won’t. He also said: “We cannot let actions such as this divide us. We cannot let hate overtake us. We have to come together and I’m sure that’s what we’ll see from this city and state.”

Indeed, we must not let hate overtake us, as it overtook Curtis Cheng. But can we do that by refusing to examine the ideology that led to his murder? By “hate,” Baird means “honest investigation into the texts and teachings of Islam that incite attacks such as this one, and the prevalence of such teachings in the Muslim community.”

And that’s the problem: every time there is another jihad attack or foiled jihad plot in the free world, our leaders just circle the wagons, trot out their Religion-of-Peace cliches again, warn us against “Islamophobia,” and refuse to look into the genuine root causes of the problem.

It’s a sure-fire path to societal suicide.
