Down through the ages rallying cries of dubious truthfulness have been promulgated. Who can forget, “Remember the Maine!” The implication being that Cubans blew up an anchored warship, giving rise to the Spanish American War. Then there was that Abbie Hoffman cry, “Hey, Hey LBJ…” Even Hoffman admitted the sentiment was nonsense. The same era gave us, ” My body, my choice!” Biden is doing his best to consign that one to history or at the very least attach an asterisk to it.
Compare and Contrast
These days, “my body, my choice” doesn’t have the same panache. Abortion advocates claimed that women had a right to murder unborn children. Sure there were obstacles. A little white out, mindless repetition and the common understanding that life began at conception was gone. Unborn children, nonsense just useless tissue.
Vaccination? You have no choice. We, the government, will restrict your liberties, and refuse you medical treatment. What is frightening is that current government policy is dictated by a TV show from the distant past.
The key, of course, is that the individual doesn’t get a free range choice. That is unlimited options. Nope, one is limited by the imagination of government bureaucrats. In order to join the ranks of the bureaucracy, imagination has to go. So one is reduced to a selection from either column “A” or column “B”.
Rational people might pause and say wait a minute…. this doesn’t make sense. A woman has a right to choose whether or not to abort her child, but that same woman has no right to refuse to be vaccinated. How can that be? The explanation is simple. Henry Ford started it.
The Texas State Student Senate adopted a resolution to ban a conservative political group from campus, because of, you know RACISM. This same university was the alma mata of Lyndon Baines Johnson, they guy who once stated:
Everybody knows murder is wrong and that everybody is entitled to a fair trial, except when democrats deem it otherwise. Nothing to see here, move along.
People have a right to choose, except when they don’t. Lunch anybody?
The reality is that democrat fascists’ have taken a page from Henry Ford. Of course you have a choice.
