Woke New Jersey Dem fooled by fake rabbi’s parody Twitter account

"The campaign of Imani Oakley, a 31-year-old progressive activist running for Congress in Newark, thought it was in negotiations to organize a fundraiser with like-minded Linda Goldstein — the “chief rabbi” of Gaza — but instead were chatting up a Big Apple lawyer running a parody Twitter account.

On the bizarre parody account, Rabbi Linda Goldstein warns Hamas fighters to practice social distancing in terror tunnels; posts photos of herself posing with a menorah made of Qassam rockets; and bills herself as the “Jewish issues advisor” to Hamas boss Ismail Haniyeh."

Dave (in MA)

Oakley doesn't seem too bright, so will probably win in a landslide.

jim nj

Nah. Oakley intends to primary Donald Payne, Jr., for Congress in a district mostly composed of Newark. Payne's father won that seat in 1988. Junior ran in 2012 for his deceased father's remaining term and has been re-elected ever since.

I heard someone float the 2024 ticket of Kabbalah Ha’Aretz and Mayor Pete. Naturally I wondered how that power duo would stack up against the concupiscence of Valeria Messalina. Too close to call:

“Both Tacitus and Suetonius portrayed Messalina as lustful, insulting, disgraceful, cruel, avaricious, etc. They attributed this to her inbreeding. Pliny the Elder tells of Messalina’s 24-hour sex competition with a prostitute in Book X of his Natural History. And guess who won? Messalina, having bedded 25 more partners than the whore Scylla…”

I was trying to find the lines Scylla said in ‘I, Claudius’. Messalina didn’t want to pay her for her time and she says, “What I do for a living , you do for fun.”

If nothing is anybody's fault, then any action taken by the strong against the weak is above reproach.

That is as pure "Law of the Jungle" as one can get.

Even the invaders of olden times "trumped up" some righteous justification to motivate their peeps into doing the dirty work for the strong.

Starting with Genesis, the great value added by all religions has been to codify some semblance of right vs wrong (good vs evil) so societies would have guard rails for 1) mutual protections, and 2) mutual improvements in the quality of life. Jumping a guard rail is supposed to lead to a serious consequence, else they would not work.

The Left has done a good job removing all guard rails the world over and it will require the Coming Dark Age for mankind to discover why they were there in the first place.

Rinse & Repeat.

Similar to when Anthony Kennedy left the SCOTUS, the Mississippi case assures that the abortion debate rages anew (actually, it never stops) but as we begin again to argue over when a human becomes a human, I have three questions that I believe need to be answered as a part of this debate:
1. Has abortion been a net positive or a net negative for women?
2. Is abortion really an issue of choice or when that choice is made?
3, Is abortion necessary in our contemporary times?
The “pro” arguments seem to revolve around these propositions that are incorporated into most “pro-choice” arguments:
1. Women have a moral right to decide what to do with their bodies
2. The right to abortion is vital for gender equality
3. The right to abortion is vital for individual women to achieve their full potential
4. Banning abortion puts women at risk by forcing them to use illegal abortionists
5. The right to abortion should be part of a portfolio of pregnancy rights that enables women to make a truly free choice whether to end a pregnancy
I’m going to add one that most pro-abortion people won’t:
6. It is used for elective birth control
I guess I think about my last question before I consider the first and second.
I should note that I understand there are cases of medical necessity, or as a response to incest or rape – but Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, 48 years ago. Attitudes toward sex, marriage and contraception have changed substantially in that near-half century, contraception has become more commonplace, and has come out from behind the counter at the local drug store and onto display racks at your local Wal-Mart. Many forms are available without prescription. OTC (over the counter) options include spermicides, condoms, and levonorgestrel emergency contraception (Plan "B"). You still must have a prescription from a doctor to purchase “the pill” but the cost is negligible – around $10 a month at a Wal-Mart pharmacy – or even free if you have private health insurance, qualify for Medicaid or other state programs.
So, for a moment, let’s set aside the argument whether a fetus is a human being or a clump of cells and focus on #2 thru #5 of the first set of “pros”.
If I substitute the word “contraception” for “abortion”, every single one of those “reasons” are rendered null and void and as to #1, doesn’t using a contraceptive qualify as a “woman’s right to decide”?
In my opinion, the easy availability of contraceptives renders all the arguments for abortion moot. If the pro-abortion crowd is honest, abortion has become an elective form of contraception if none of the others are chosen or fail (which the occurrence is an infinitesimally small number – far less than the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood alone).
As to the second question, there is the old stand-by that works every time it is tried – abstinence from sex.
I’m no prude and don’t really care what anyone does on their own dime, I just don’t think any orgasm is so great that should cost a child their life and the time when a woman was required by cultural mores to sexually submit to her husband (or potential baby daddy) are long gone.
Having intercourse for any reason than rape or incest, is a choice. A baby should not be sentenced to death because a woman wants to feel loved, hang on to their partner or a couple just wants to have a good time.
And this choice is not just on the female – pregnancy is always a potential consequence of intercourse, If a man has sex with a woman that results in pregnancy, he has a duty and responsibility to that child and the mother as if he were the one carrying it.
Human Life International quotes from the compilation of data of more than 2.4 million abortions in the states of Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Utah during the years 1996 to 2020, the data is from official reports legally required from abortion clinics in those states. It presents an accurate estimate of the reasons for abortions:
- 1.14% are done to save the life or physical health of the mother.
- 1.28% to preserve the mental health of the mother.
- 0.39% in cases of rape or incest.
- 0.69% for fetal birth defects, or eugenics.
The remaining 96.50% of all abortions are performed for social or economic reasons.
Ann Coulter once accurately said that abortion was the sacrament of the progressive religion, so let us look at three of the most motivating issues of the modern progressive Democrat:
1. A libertine rejection of any moral standard
2. Radical environmentalism, and their most unifying issue,
3. Abortion.
Think about this for a minute and ruminate over the schizophrenia of the melding of these three positions:
In rejection of moral standards, the “progressives” seek to elevate humans over the Divine, to claim that humans are the top of the food chain through evolution and should be celebrated and unrestrained, yet:
Humans are destroying the earth through wars, exploitation of resources and capitalism – and therefore population must be controlled, and economic activity must be limited – standards of living must be reduced through halting human progress because the health of the planet must be placed above the wellbeing of any human and,
There should be no war because war kills children, yet they fight for the legal approval to kill a fetus at the whim of the mother and approve of abortion as a necessary population control device. I think they believe that humans must have the right to kill other humans in the womb as that is seen as the final celebration of man’s victory over God – the ability to choose who lives and who dies.
Just a fact to put abortion in perspective – abortion procedures kill more children in the US than any war – there are estimated to be around a million abortion procedures performed in America every year. As a reference, that number is more Americans than were killed in the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East wars altogether.
The startling facts are that almost 190 abortions are performed per every 1,000 live births and since Roe was decided, over 61.8 million lives have been extinguished.
All things considered; one must question if abortion is necessary in our contemporary times.
If the pro-choice (aka pro-abortion) folks truly believe in the “science”, they would see that all their points are rendered moot by the easy availability of methods to prevent an unwanted pregnancy in the first place.
Abortion in America has become less of a choice and more of a convenience.
I spent a large amount of time in China where human life is not valued. The endpoint of pro-abortion arguments always includes a devaluation of life. That perspective cannot be allowed to take root in America. Human life is not disposable.
I am against abortion because I do not believe a fetus is a “clump of cells”. I believe a “spark of Divinity” is transmitted at the moment of conception (Nancy Pelosi believes this about MS-13 members, why not babies?), so I believe abortion ends a human life – but I also believe that the arguments made in favor of abortion in 2021 are antiquated – through medical research and true scientific inquiry, we have learned a lot about fetal development over the past fifty or so years.
