Unintentional Satire

“Miss Weber, you have killed your child, which you admit is a baby/human being, intentionally. That does make you an admitted murderer. I’m not going to ‘condemn you to hell’, I’m going to pray for your forgiveness and for the suffering which you will endure when you realize what you have done. Every baby you see from that moment on is going to wake you up to the realization that you killed your child.”

Ahh, gotta love right-wing rhetoric. But why oh why would I bother reading this crap? The article being critiqued was from the Onion. So now we have politicians quoting Colbert as if he’s serious – now bloggers thinking the Onion is a straightnews publication. I cannot fathom what life would be like if I were that dumb. Go read it – it’s a hoot!

March Together For Life: Murder without conscience

UPDATE:

This just keeps getting better…

“Needless to say, a few people wanted to let me know that I was a dolt for thinking that her article was real. As a matter of fact, call me a dolt, because in the beginning I really did think it was real. Why? because I meet women like her in the field all the time. Anyway, I wrote the blog in a way that was meant to point out how psychotic the pro-abortion movement is. I have been at abortion mills, picketed government buildings, parks and more. I have heard a lot, and if you think that this woman just ‘sounded’ nuts, let me tell you what a woman told me a couple of months ago.”

Wow. Just. Wow.

So, in other words, you wanted to make a straw man argument (which by the way, continues later on in the piece with the supposed woman mentioned being used as the straw man), used a satirical piece unknowingly as your straw man, got caught at it, and then are surprised that people think you have an IQ around that of a house plant?

Satire?
