Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Ol’ Robbo saw this Orwellian headline earlier today: New York Times Trades “Fetal Heartbeat” for “Embryonic Pulsing” in Abortion Reporting.

I actually saw the very same linguistic two-step being pushed on FacePlant within the past couple weeks.  Because a fetus doesn’t have a heart heart, just clump of pulsing cells.  The talking-point distribution system on the Left seems to be pretty efficient.

As I’ve often noted here (unoriginally), control the language and you control the debate.  But of course, this isn’t just a game of semantics:  Dehumanization makes it that much easier to justify their stance.  If it’s clinical, it must be okay.  What are you, a science-denier?

Speaking of which, also spotted on FacePlant within the past two weeks or so was a photo of three young persons (I don’t think I can refer to them in good faith as ladies), holding signs which read, “Parasites Have No Rights”.

Let that one sink in, if you will.  (I had the urge to ask if that meant they believed anybody who receives government handouts and doesn’t pay taxes shouldn’t be allowed to vote.)

Ol’ Robbo casts about for a word that suitably describes all this, and the only one I can come up with is “diabolical”.

I don’t use that word lightly:  If you can find a better example of the Devil’s will at work, I really don’t want to know about it.
