If Irony Makes You Vomit . . .

Then you might want to get a bag before you read this quote from a recent speech by Barack (I can't wait to sign the Freedom of Choice Act) Obama:

"It is the grimmest of ironies that one of the most savage, barbaric acts of evil in history began in one of the most modernized societies of its time, where so many markers of human progress became tools of human depravity: science that can heal, used to kill; education that can enlighten, used to rationalize away basic moral impulses; the bureaucracy that sustains modern life, used as the machinery of mass death, a ruthless, chillingly efficient system where many were responsible for the killing, but few got actual blood on their hands."

Gagggggg . . . . . . . Here is some context.

The irony screams: willful blindness and politically motivated double standards. Sick to the stomach is an understatement.

abortion is a great evil - only right to feel strongly about it. But to compare it to the unspeakable horror of the Jewish Holocaust is to evidence deep moral confusion and to insult the horror of what happened all those years ago. I'd like to see WWII Holocaust survivors compare the two in the same way. I don't think so.

Why, just because they are little and helpless and can't speak out for themselves? The moral confusion is to think that murder is acceptable just because "we" do it.
