Give Ben Shapiro Credit for His Response to a Question About Abortion

To start, let me emphasize that I am not a Ben Shapiro fan. However, he apparently has his moments.

When confronted by a leftist student during the question and answer session after his Berkeley speech, conservative Jew Ben Shapiro had the opportunity to do some clever verbal jiu-jitsu on the student.

Shapiro makes a concise case for the pro-life position.

What I would like to see is a moral case made for denying white women abortions, while encouraging abortion among nonwhite women.

If Shapiro would grant that pregnancies resulting from rape are morally OK, then we have a place to start the discussion. Likewise, if he would grant that it’s morally acceptable to abort severely retarded babies, we have another starting point.

I fear, however, that to Shapiro, abortion is NEVER acceptable. Maybe not even if the pregnant woman’s life is threatened.

The Blaze

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro masterfully handled a student’s claim that a first-trimester fetus isn’t human life during a Q&A session at his highly anticipated speaking event Thursday at the University of California, Berkeley.

What did the student ask?

“I just wanted to know why exactly do you think a first-trimester fetus has moral value?” the unidentified student asked.

What Shapiro said

“A first trimester fetus has moral value because whether you consider it a potential human life or a full-on human life, it has more value than just a cluster of cells. If left to its natural processes, it will grow into a baby.”

“So the real question is where are you gonna draw the line? Are you gonna draw the line at the heartbeat? Because it’s very hard to draw the line at the heartbeat. There are people who are adults who are alive because of a pacemaker and they need some sort of outside force generating their heartbeat.”

“Are you going to do it based on brain function? OK, well what about people who are in a coma? Should we just kill them?”

“The problem is that whenever you draw any line other than the inception of the child, you end up drawing a false line that can be applied to people who are adults. So either human life has intrinsic value or it doesn’t.”

The tense exchange

“We both agree that adult human life has intrinsic value — can we start from that premise?” Shapiro asked.

“I believe that sentience is what gives something moral value, not necessarily being a human alone,” the student replied. Sentience is the capacity to feel and perceive, or to reason morally.

“OK, so when you’re asleep, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked.

“I’m still considered sentient when I’m asleep,” the student said back.

“OK, if you are in a coma from which you may awake, can I stab you?” Shapiro asked again.

“Well, then, uhh, no,” the student answered. “That’s still potential sentience.”

“I agree it is potential sentience. You know what else is potential sentience? Being a fetus,” Shapiro declared to loud cheers.

How did the student respond?

In response, the student explained he believes the “burden” that “unwanted” children have on potential parents should be weighed when considering abortion policy.

“Now you’re shifting the argument,” Shapiro told him. “I don’t believe that you being a burden on somebody is justification for them killing you.”

BEN SHAPIRO WANTS TO SEE BABIES BORN, NOT ABORTED.

McDonald’s Worker Tries to Flush Newborn Down Toilet at Work, Says DA

SARAH LOCHNER, AGE 25.

I just have a feeling that the baby in this story is nonwhite.

No matter. Where’s the natural maternal instinct disappeared to in America today?

PIX11

SAN FRANCISCO — A McDonald’s cashier gave birth to a baby girl while at work at tried to flush her down the toilet, California prosecutors said Wednesday.

Sarah Lockner, 25, has been charged with attempted murder after the newborn survived, according to the San Mateo County district attorney.

Prosecutors say Lockner went to work the night of Sept. 4 at a Redwood City McDonald’s complaining of stomach pains and visited the bathroom numerous times, raising concerns of co-workers.

A co-worker discovered a large amount of blood on the bathroom floor and peered over the stall to check on Lockner.

The co-worker told investigators she saw a baby face down in the toilet bowl and Lockner pushing on her back while flushing the toilet.

The co-worker called 911 and when paramedics and police arrived the baby was in Lockner’s arms, but the newborn wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse.

Police arrested Lockner and paramedics revived the baby, who district attorney Steve Wagstaffe said is in stable condition, but it’s unknown whether the baby suffered brain damage.

Wagstaffe said Lockner told investigators that she didn’t know she was pregnant.

Lockner remain in jail on $11 million bail and will be appointed a public defender on Sept. 18.

Wow! $11,000,000 is a lot of hamburgers with fries.

If Sarah had the brains to figure out she was pregnant, Planned Parnthood would have done the dirty work for her and she wouldn’t be in need of $11 mil.

Breitbart reports that Planned Parenthood has teamed up with Satanists to promote abortion in Missouri.

In another story, Breitbart exposes the partnership between OK Cupid and PP to screen out pro-life persons from the dating site.

Planned Parenthood should defend Sarah Lochner on the grounds that she was simply doing a late-term abortion, a right the Supreme Court guarantees her.

Get to work, PP, and have at defending attempted murder, you murderers.

Australia: The Madness Continues–Women and Children Must Accept Being Raped

THE NEW FACE OF AUSTRALIA.

Muslims, many of them black, are allegedly causing a lot of trouble for the white Christian population.

Australians can’t easily own a gun or else many of these problems would go away. Maybe they should learn how to make do with other weapons.

Zerohedge

“While terrorism’s origins have many factors, Islamic terrorists, as heinous as their acts are, they are often merely doing what the scriptures are telling them.” — Tanveer Ahmed, Muslim psychiatrist.

In Australia, according to judges, women and children must accept sexual assaults because it is part of the “Islamic culture” of their attackers. It would seem that in parts of Australia, this “Islamic culture” has replaced the rule of law. None of the above, however, seems to be enough to appease Muslim sentiments. In March, Anne Aly, Australia’s first female Muslim MP, said that racial-discrimination laws should be expanded to cover insults based on religion as well.

In March, a teacher at Punchbowl Primary School quit her job after she and her family received death threats from the children in the school, with some of them saying they would behead her. The teacher’s complaints to the New South Wales Department of Education were dismissed.

During the month of Ramadan alone, the world witnessed 160 Islamic attacks [5] in 29 countries, in which 1627 people were murdered and 1824 injured. Nevertheless, the dual efforts to deny any links between Islamic terrorism and Islam on the one hand, and the efforts to accommodate Islam to the greatest extent possible on the other, seem to continue unaffected by the realities of Islamic terrorism — in Australia, as well, which is experiencing its own share of sharia and jihad [6].

At the end of May, the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) called [7] on the Australian Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade to:

“…include a recommendation in its report that disavows the notion that there is any inherent link between Islam and terrorism… The Committee should condemn any politician who refers divisively (expressly or implied) to any religious or ethnic group for the purpose of political gain.”

A MEMBER OF THE RESISTANCE.

YOUNGER RESISTERS.

PHAA Chief Executive Michael Moore said [7] that there is no inherent link between any religion and acts of terror:

“When you look at terrorism and the IRA, I don’t think many people blamed Christianity for terrorism when clearly there was an overlay. In fact there’s nothing ­inherent in Christianity that links to terrorism”.

Guess the Race: Man arrested at Rome’s Trevi Fountain with 40 panty videos

TREVI FOUNTAIN. THE SCENE OF THE CRIME.

You’ll have to guess the race since nobody is reporting it. However, it would be reasonable to guess that the perp is one of the Sons of Africa who have illegally made their way to Italy.

The clumsy obviousness of his crime suggests the perp has a low intelligence level and a surfeit of testosterone.

Star-Tribune

ROME — Police in Rome say they have arrested a man who allegedly shot smartphone videos of women’s panties, preying on tourists wearing short skirts at the famed Trevi Fountain and even fondling them to get a better shot.

Police said they were alerted about the man’s alleged activities on Tuesday when an Asian tourist screamed after she had been fondled. The man first excused himself and then tried to run away, but police nabbed him in the crowd.

Police said in a statement that when officers searched the suspect’s smartphone, they found 40 videos recorded under different women’s skirts, all made in the same day.

He was detained on suspicion of sexual violence.

Tourists visiting the 18th century fountain on Wednesday praised the police, saying the man violated the women’s privacy.

If the African worked as hard at paying work as they do at crime, they might amount to something.

Here they’re selling fake goods to tourists in Rome.

Anti-Sharia Law Marches Across U.S. Spark Violence by Antifa Thugs and Denunciation by Jews

Who wants Sharia Law in America?

The left.

The left’s street thugs came out today to attack Americans who believe that Sharia Law is unconstitutional. The left’s intellectuals are selling this form of oppression as a civil right.

That the left supports abortion and LGBT, which are in opposition to Sharia Law makes no difference. The left sees its future in anarchy.

By the way, the (((American legal system))) is already fuxated beyond repair, even without Sharia Law grafted onto it as a civil right.

Meanwhile, The Times of Israel reports that “Jewish groups” oppose anti-Sharia Law efforts.

Update

Clashes have broken out between members of purportedly “anti-fascist” leftist groups and conservatives gathering to protest genital mutilation, honor killings and other practices associated with Sharia law, as part of the a nationwide “March Against Sharia.”

Seattle police were forced to use pepper spray on leftists gathering to protest the march after a group of protesters confronted the marchers. The intermittent scuffles eventually forced officers to use bikes to push people back in an effort to keep the two groups separated, the Seattle Times reported.

In North Carolina, police could be seen pushing a mob of leftists back as they moved closer to the marchers, the American Mirror reported.

Tensions escalated in New York City when the anti-MAS crowd crossed Foley Square to throw jugs of rotten milk at the marchers, according to the Daily News [12]. Later, the two sides clashed violently in City Hall Park.

*****

Police departments across America are bracing for another wave of leftist-inspired violence as protesters gather in 28 cities in 19 states on Saturday for the national “March Against Sharia,” the Associated Press reported. [13]

Counter-protesters in virtually every city where marches are taking place have promised to disrupt them, catching the attention of local police who have been wary of groups like Antifa and others that identify with far-left politics. These groups have demonstrated a tendency to provoke violent clashes with otherwise-peaceful conservative demonstrators, like those seen on Sunday in Portland, Ore. The MAS was organized by ACT for America, a conservative lobbying group that believes Sharia is “incompatible with Western democracy and the freedoms it affords.” Marchers will gather in both smaller communities and large cities like New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.

The Washington Post [15] reports that “The marches set up the potential for more public clashes between far-right activists and their far-left opposition, similar to recent violent encounters between the political extremes in Berkeley, Calif., and Portland, Ore. While demonstrators argue they are protecting free speech and defending traditional American values, counter protesters say the marchers underscore a larger trend of intolerance that is increasingly evident across a politically divided country.”

In New York City, the rally kicked off downtown nearly an hour late with a crowd of around three dozen people, some of them in camouflage and waving American flags. A few wore shirts identifying themselves as members of far-right groups Oathkeepers and the III Percenters, according to WaPo. [15] Fox News published some footage of the march, which can be seen below.

Across the street, separated by police barricades and a few dozen police, a few hundred mostly young people, including labor activists and Jewish and Muslim activists, and anarchists, blasted airhorns and whistles and held banners that read “Fascists out of NYC.”

Fox News [17] reported that there have been “some clashes” between the marchers and leftist demonstrators around the country, though it didn’t specify where.

Frank Morganthaler, the vice president of the New York State Oath Keepers, told WaPo [15] that the smaller turnout at his rally may have been the result of some people being “intimidated” by the threat of violence from opposition protesters.

“These people go wild,” he said, glancing across the street. “They’re crazy. We’ve seen what they’ve done in other cities, breaking windows and other stuff.”

The counter-protesters say the March Against Sharia and its organizers are anti-Muslim. Some weekend shoppers are already worried things will escalate into violence.

Of course, some of the counter-protesters interviewed by WaPo [21] were quick to wrongly associate their opposition with a man who stabbed three men, killing two, on a Portland commuter train last month.

Across the street and two sets of police barricades, Marjorie Stamberg, a New York City teacher, held up a sign that read “drive fascists out of NYC.”

“Two people were murdered in Portland a few weeks ago by their people,” she said. “If they tell you it’s about free speech, they’re liars. They’re killers. They’re haters.”

British Orthodox Jew Kidnapped, Raped Ex-Wife in Secret Dungeon, Say Police

Orthodox Jews can’t even assimilate with other Jews, much less with secular or Christian Europeans.

Daily Mail

An ultra-orthodox Jewish man kidnapped his ex-wife and raped her in a secret ‘dungeon’ after refusing to grant her a religious divorce, a court heard.

The defendant, from Hackney, allegedly lured the woman to his warehouse, with the help of Steven Hill, 54, under the pretext of collecting her granddaughter.

The 62 year-old, who cannot be named, and Hill then bundled her into a concealed cellar where he tied her up and raped her, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

The couple had been granted a divorce in the UK courts but, according to Jewish custom, they were still married.

The husband allegedly left the woman locked in the cellar on October 15, 2014 where she was able to call for help.

Police found her later that day tied up, extremely distressed, half naked and covered in bruises, jurors heard.

Charlotte Newell, prosecuting, described the couple’s troubled past.
She said: ‘The couple had been married for some 28 years. They had eight children together. They are ultra-orthodox Hassidic Jews and follow their customs and rituals.

‘Therefore they have divorced in a UK court in 2008, undergoing what appeared to be an acrimonious process.

‘But they are still technically husband and wife and until he grants her a “get” or “release” they still considered themselves married under their own customs.

‘Until he grants her a “get” she is known as a “chained” woman in the community.

‘He has constantly refused to grant her that and they lived apart. They had no sexual relationship, and she described him as physically “sickening”.’

Ms Newell described the day of the offences as happening on the Jewish festival of Sukkot.

She said: ‘The nub of this case is that the two defendants are old friends. There was an earlier trial that came to no resolution.
‘On that date the alleged victim was physically overpowered by her husband and Hill.

‘She was taken to a secure dungeon-style cellar, that was concealed in a hidden room, and she was raped by her ex-husband. When she was bundled into the cellar room Hill withdrew.

‘She was then left in this foul room where she would have remained had she not been able to call the police, who forced there way into the premises and found the cellar.

‘They found her distressed, covered in bruises from head to toe, naked but for a dressing gown and skirt, and still bound by the restraints that had been used to restrain her.

Would it be antisemitic to suggest that these Jews might be happier in Israel, where they can practice their demented religion as they see fit.

Feds: Up to 100 Girls May Have Had Their Genitals Cut in Michigan

(((Judge Bernard Friedman))) has allowed two of three defendants in the Michigan female genital mutilation case released from jail on bail.

That third world primitives like the defendants in the case are even in the United States is proof that the country’s policy of “inclusion” and essentially open borders is a disaster.

Excerpt from Freep

A federal prosecutor dropped a bombshell in court Wednesday, telling a federal judge that the government estimates that as many as 100 girls may have had their genitals cut at the hands of a local doctor and her cohorts.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward disclosed the information while trying to convince a judge to keep a doctor and his wife locked up in the historic case. It involves allegations that two Minnesota girls had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic in February as part of a religious rite of passage and were told to keep what happened a secret.

“Due to the secretive nature of this procedure, we are unlikely to ever know how many children were cut by Dr. (Jumana) Nagarwala,” Woodward said, referring to the lead defendant in the case, later adding, “The Minnesota victims were not the first victims.”

Against Woodward’s wishes, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman granted bond to two other defendants in the case: Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, of Farmington Hills, who is accused of letting Nagarwala use his clinic to perform genital cutting procedures on minor girls; and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, who is accused of holding the girls’ hands during the procedure to keep them from squirming and to calm them.

The government believes the three defendants, all members of a local Indian-Muslim sect, subjected numerous girls to genital cutting procedures over a 12-year period. To date, the government says it has identified eight victims — including the two Minnesota girls — though Woodward said the government estimates there could be as many as 100 victims. She said that’s a conservative estimate, and that it’s based on Dr. Attar’s alleged admission to authorities that he let Nagarwala use his clinic up to six times a year to treat children for genital rashes.

Attar’s lawyer, Mary Chartier, scoffed at the claim.

“I think the government has overstated so many aspects of this case and this is one more example of overreaching,” Chartier said after the hearing, during which she and another lawyer convinced the judge to set the Attars free.

The defense has argued that the Attars did not engage in any criminal act and that the procedure at issue is a protected religious rite-of-passage that involves no cutting, but rather a scraping of genital membrane. They also argued the Attars are not a danger to the society and have no reason or desire to flee, convincing U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman to release them on bond.
