I’m astonished with the brazen disregard for human life President Obama has. There is something fundamentally screwed up with our government when it declares access to broadband Internet a right while at the same time denying LIFE to innocent Americans. I must be in backwards land.
I decided to write another comic. Not because I find the topic funny, but because it’s the only way I feel like I can convey my total disgust with this Administration and those who support it.
At the same time, I also have disgust with myself. For how long did I push abortion to the back of my mind and ignore it? How often did I say, “I can’t do anything about it” or “It will fix itself.” More and more, I find people labeling myself an “extremist” because of how vocal I’ve become about this topic.
HOW CAN YOU NOT BE OUTRAGED?!
I don’t know how to convey the scope of the catastrophe. Or how shocking America’s lack of shock is. Three thousand children are brutally killed legally each and every day. If there were pictures of children being led to gas chambers by their mothers, would a large percentage of our population still be so coldly apathetic? Would I still be labeled an extremist?
If being shocked and disgusted and outraged and saddened and vocal about the largest genocide in human history makes me an extremists—GOOD. I don’t want to be normal. I don’t want to be middle ground. There is NO middle ground to genocide.
To quote the late German pastor, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
Bonhoeffer was executed by the Nazis for his part in resisting the Holocaust.
He was an “extremist” too.
I think I’m in good company.
