The illogical logic of politocians boils down to WIIFM

Let’s pretend a cult performs human sacrifices then sells the body parts. The outcry to such an unthinkable act would be tremendous yet some want you to overlook the fetal harvesting undertaken by Planned Parenthood.  They obscure the facts by claiming only a small, anti-abortion group is outraged by it and they have an agenda.

That’s like affixing the label “hate crime” to a murder. It may very well be but that does not change the fact the victim is still dead. Whatever the motive of the group that is making the most noise about this issue, the fact remains Planned Parenthood is far afield from its stated objectives.

The Liberal leaning crowd say we should not judge 99 percent of Planned Parenthood on the actions of one percent of the clinics. I agree and that’s a fair point. It still doesn’t change the fact a part of Planned Parenthood is involved in something it should not be doing.

Do you want your tax dollars supporting Planned Parenthood? If so, then you are implicitly agreeing to fetal harvesting and that’s fine if you are OK with that behavior. However, do not vilify those that are not Ok with having their money support something they do not believe in. As consumers we routinely ask for our money back if the product or service does not meet our standards. Why is tax dollars different?

I realize it’s more complicated than that but I would ask my Liberal friends to maintain the same logic for issues where the minority does not represent the majority. I expect Liberals to have the same tolerance for gun owners when one nut goes on a shooting spree. Based on their logic for Planned Parenthood, we should not judge all gun owners based on the one percent who do not deserve the right to own guns make the headlines. Unless, of course, they want to ban scalpels from doctors!

Or how about maintaining that same view whenever a white police officer shoots a black criminal. Perhaps my Liberals buddies now see the error of referring to all police officers as racists because of a few unfortunate incidents.

I would also love to see President Obama take his own advice. He told attendees at the United Nations that we must reject “Ignorance that equates Islam with terror.”  He needs to reject his own ignorance when condemning all police officers.

President Obama should also follow his own advice when it comes to the Iraqi Christians who fled ISIS and crossed into the United States via Mexico seeking religious asylum.  The State Department is deporting 27 Iraqi Christians after denying their applications for asylum.  Here is a government that allowed 50,000 illegal aliens into the country earlier this year but is deporting 27 people who actually tried to do things legally.

Does something seem wrong to you or is it me? We allow illegal aliens to run rampant in our country but reject those trying to enter our country legally.

Politics is a strange animal. Most of us can tell when politicians are lying because their lips are moving but we still like to think they believe their gibberish. I’d be happy if most politicians would maintain the same logic to all situations and not just the ones that suit their needs.

Perhaps I shouldn’t judge the one percent of the politicians who actually care about doing what is right for the country based on the 99 percent who are in it for themselves.

About Armando Diana

A freelance writer for more than 25 years I covered the political scene in New Jersey which can prepare anyone for national politics. I have no fancy political degrees and I'm definitely not a lawyer - I am a common person who is fed up with politics. I want leaders focused on doing what is right for the country, not for them.
