Alas when will the Media ever understand the recipe for disaster:

Start with Carly Fiorina the GOP woman they pushed to get in the main debate at a time when Hillary Clinton Popularity is dropping like a rock.

ADD: The highest ratings for any program in the history of CNN

Mix in: The media lionizing her performance (it was very good I placed her a close 3rd)

Bake in : Her challenging this giant audience watching to view the planned parenthood videos that the MSM have totally ignore.

Yield: Millions of people discovering a story only because they heard it from a person the media have been celebrating.

Serve: The media’s reputation on a platter as suddenly they have to spin a story they ignored to people whose first exposure to it was Fiorina and whose likely second was from seeing the videos of people casually either dissecting or talking about dissecting babies and crushing their skulls to harvest parts for money.

The irony is by ignoring the story they allow it to get out without their trademark spin.

God works in mysterious ways, if more of the MSM believed in him perhaps they would have known that.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus

On Saturday I posted videos & interviews from the planned parenthood protest in Fitchburg.

It was a small protest but one of 180 planned protests against planned parenthood that as Breitbart noted became 320 protests all over the nation such as louisville.

Alejandro Capote spoke at the Louisville, Kentucky, protest, where he estimates at least 500 people participated.

“I spoke about the importance of defunding Planned Parenthood,” Capote tells Breitbart News. “It’s important that women have health care that does not fund abortion.”

Falls church virginia

Theresa King, who organized the Falls Church, Virginia, #ProtestPP rally told Breitbart News she decided to be an organizer after viewing the Center for Medical Progress videos.

“I saw the Planned Parenthood videos and felt the need to act,” she said. “As a kid, I would pray outside of abortion clinics, and my mom always said that we were giving the babies the only funeral they would ever have, so I felt the need to stand for the babies in the video, but for all the babies that have died in abortion.”

And as Twitchy and Steven Miller noted these took place without violence:

This fact is a huge problem for the MSM which has taken the side of planned parenthood in the current debate and the knowledge that this many protests took place without incident would be an awkward story for them.

However despite the photographic evidence I’ve just displayed the media’s problem was solved by the people in question apparently being totally invisible:

 

Obviously the protesters were quite invisible to most, I did a search of CBS news for planned parenthood , no coverage:
cbspp
ABC no coverage
abcpp
NBC no coverage
nbcpp

Not even a word on the net from any of them.  CNN did slightly better online here is the full text of their only story: (emphasis mine)

CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Opponents took to the streets in a nationwide protest against Planned Parenthood on Saturday. Jennifer James was driving past a Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City when she saw hundreds of people protesting Saturday morning. ““It was a very quiet protest,” James said. “As I walked up and down it with my camera, you could have heard a pin drop. It was unusual given how contentions of an issue it is.”
zdan, CNN iReport producer

A few hundred people gather outside Planned Parenthood in Oklahoma City to protest abortion and government funding for the organization. Among the protesters were students from the Newman Center, a Catholic student organization at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Note the highlighted text, the only reason why CNN has this tiny bit of online coverage was because one of their producers noticed the protest driving by and was shocked by how orderly it was.
But who knew that so many people in the nation could be so invisible?  Particularly when they don’t have media connections who will be sure to show up to make even the tiniest protest national news

I’m a single blogger with a cheap camera and the MSM is a multi billion dollar industry, how is it that I could produce this interview

and they could not?

IMG_0377Yesterday all over the country protests took place at Planned parenthood locations highlighting the horrors that we’ve seen from the planned parenthood videos that have been released not only selling organs of children but revealing the slaying of born alive children to get bit of them for profit.

In Massachusetts while there were large protests in Boston and Worcester and Springfield. I choose to attend the small protest in my city of Fitchburg in front of the planned parenthood location there as it was not only the closest but it started at Noon rather than 9 or 10 AM. the closest.

Because Fitchburg is the smallest of the protest cities and unlike the other Planned parenthood locations no abortions take place in Fitchburg it tends to draw small crowds from 15-30 protesters given the day I was curious as to how many people I would see.

I arrived about 11:15 and sat in my car reading in the parking lot across from PP, waiting to see when the first person would show up, at the same time there was loud music in Spanish behind me. Apparently in the city park by the river a small festival was going on and occasionally a spanish family would turn up and head down there.

Around 11:40 I say my first “Choose Life” license plate turn up. It was a family I’d never seen before and they consented to an interview.

As it got closer to Noon a few people I recognized tricked in, I asked one about the turnout and she joked. “you know us Catholics, we like to show up at the last-minute.”

She was right in one respect at about 11:55 people started showing up in quantity many of them from my new parish St. Bernard’s Parish at St. Camillus church including our Pastor and Religious solitary nun, but the turnout wasn’t strictly Catholic.

I saw many faces that I didn’t recognize including Sarah whose family had signs that I absolutely loved. She spoke to me next.

At about five past 12 the crowd was over 60 and things began. Dr. Mark Rollo was the primary speaker.

And he was followed by Tom Harvey who despite the very blue state legislature is taking the fight there and looking for help.

After the speeches the organizers began in prayer, including the Rosary and the Divine Mercy chaplet. In one respect this worked out pretty well because the 25 person Protestant contingent kept holding the signs while the 50 person Catholic contingent was praying, although our protestant brothers did occasionally break into song and prayer as well.

We had a few people yell at us but for me the highlight was one woman who stopped by and asked why we don’t do more than just pray and protest. She was amazed to hear about the various efforts to help pregnant women that are sponsored such as Bellmont Abbey College’s program for pregnant college students and the work done locally at Visitation House.

IMG_0345

It’s the part of the story that is rarely told.

In the end the count got up to 80 as local people who had attended the Worcester event turned up but other than one other new media person who interviewed me there was no sign of press. This was apparently consistent with the national coverage as the media either pretended we didn’t exist or avoided mentioning the videos that promoted us to come the exception being in Louisiana thanks to Bobby Jindal who beat Planned Parenthood at their own game.

The efforts of American journalist to hide and downplay these videos makes them complicit in the actions in them and unlike the German’s after world war two they don’t even have deniability.

I suspect the fight will go on long after I’m gone but the day will come when our descendants will look at us the same way as we look at Dietrich’s character above.

Update: Glenn put it well:

TRADITIONAL MEDIA COVERAGE, HOWEVER, WAS LESS THAN MASSIVE: Massive Planned Parenthood protests across US.

If this had been a black lives matter protest it would have been everywhere in the new but as more black babies are aborted than born in the US in a sense a “black lives matters” protest is exactly what it was.

This is huge news:

StemExpress, one of the tissue companies that works with Planned Parenthood, is cutting its ties with the women’s health organization after a series of sting videos that have prompted congressional inquiries, sources tell POLITICO.

The small biomedical tissue procurement company is distancing itself from Planned Parenthood after finding itself tangentially linked to what abortion opponents allege is Planned Parenthood’s illegal trafficking of fetal tissue and organs.

The videos and images like this didn’t help but I suspect a lot had to do with this:

The Court also rejects StemExpress’ argument that they are entitled to injunctive relief because CMP violated California criminal and civil law against taping a conversation without consent. That law, the court points out, allows a victim to get damages and to prevent further illicit recording, but not to prevent distribution of the recording.

The court’s comments suggest that StemExpress will have an uphill battle convincing the court to turn the temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction, and will probably dissolve the TRO and let CMP distribute its recording of a meeting with StemExpress executives.

Steven Miller put it well on twitter:

Life news says this about Stem Express:

StemExpress is one of a handful of biotech firms that works with Planned parenthood by purchasing aborted babies and their body parts and selling them to scientists at research universities for medical experiments. But Politico is reporting that the biologics company is breaking its ties with the abortion corporation.

How bad does it have to be if you buy dead baby parts for a living but planned parenthood is a bridge too far for you. Ed Morrissey notes how it is:

But if they are willing to cut ties with the single largest source of fetal tissue in the country by far, they must think this last video and the videos to come will be bad indeed — like, Category 5 bad.

and it’s not good news for Planned Parenthood either:

StemExpress’s abandonment of Planned Parenthood in the midst of a concerted effort by the abortion provider to get supporters to “Stand With Planned Parenthood” speaks volumes about the effects of the videos on Planned Parenthood’s bottom line. StemExpress, after all, is a key Planned Parenthood ally and even went to court to prevent the release of additional undercover videos that tar the taxpapyer-funded non-profit abortion provider.

If a business that exists solely to act as a middleman between the buyers and sellers of aborted baby body parts thinks a mere association with Planned Parenthood is bad for its image, things must be really bad.

It will be interesting to see how the media reacts to this development.

As I watch the planned parenthood story unfold I’ve wondered about the Democrats who have sold their own moralities, particularly those who claim Christianity.

As I’ve pondered it occurs to me that this is a parallel that we’ve seen twice before in living memory.

In the Soviet Union if a person wanted power or position one had to be a member of the communist party and if one wanted to advance in the party there are things one had to do.

When millions were starved to death, when others were banished, or locked up one had to either deny it, convincing oneself that it wasn’t happening and or justify it as necessary for the safety and security of the state. There was no other choice if one wanted to maintain position or even life.

In the Third Reich if a person wanted power or position, one had to be (Col Klink not withstanding) a member of the Nazi party and if one wanted to advance in the party there were thing one had to do.

When Jews business were rounded up, their property confiscated and finally shipped away and killed, one had to either justify it, or ignore it, there was no third choice if one wanted to maintain one’s position or even life.

In the Democrat party of today it is the same.

If you want to advance in the party on the national level one had to go along. If you failed to do so then you would never advance beyond local politics. And today even images of dead children, dissected with people buying and selling them, joking about it over dinner or laughing about it in a lab the party demands that one obey.

Thus the democrat if he wants to maintain his party position has to either pretend that he doesn’t see these atrocities or defend them.

But unlike the Germans of the 30’s and the Russians from the 20′ to the 80’s these democrats have another option. They can always reject their party and join the other. They don’t risk life, only position.

Yet given that choice between rejecting the slaughter and dismemberment of innocents and risking position or staying the course, ignoring or defending those who would do those things today’s Democrat party chooses the latter.

That BTW is why it was so critical for the Democrat party to become secularized, because how else can one continue to live particularly for so many pols over seventy getting closer and closer to their makers. Much better to them not believing in one at all.

I will never get over the willingness of these people to go along with this for the sake of power.

Update: this Piece at Hotair really makes my point

how on Earth can Earnest stand there and earnestly (sorry..) claim that that neither he nor anyone on the Oval Office staff has even seen the videos? He’s “relying on news reports that I’ve seen” from other people who have seen the videos? How many stories have we heard now over the course of the last six years where the White House is claiming that they found out about an important issue by watching television? And given the red hot nature of the story, nobody was dispatched to go watch the videos themselves so that the administration could generate an informed opinion? It simply beggars belief.

I don’t think it begger belief, I think it’s Vital for the white house to make sure nobody follows Jake Tappers suggestion that Well, “somebody at the White House should maybe watch the videos in full.” because once a person in the White House watches them then their deniability is gone.

And that is the single most important commodity when you are defending the indefensible.

Student’s for Life have decided has decided that the dismembered boy who planned parenthood employees were gleefully dissecting deserved a name:

This baby deserves a name, deserves dignity that is rightly afforded him as a member of the human race – dignity that was ripped from him as he died at the hands Planned Parenthood. Dignity as they took from him as they referred to his body as “war torn.”

His name should be Emmett

the name Emmett is a fitting choice for the dead lad as it is in honor of another Emmett who was also brutally killed

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old black boy from Chicago who dared to speak to a white woman when he was visiting relatives in Mississippi. He was subsequently beaten with one eye gouged out, and then shot through the head before being tethered to a heavy gin and thrown in the river. His body was recovered three days later and returned to his mother in Chicago.

His mother, Mamie Till Bradley, wanted to have an open casket at Emmett’s funeral as to show the world what her son suffered simply because of his skin color. His rights – and his life – were unjustly ripped away from him. And his killers were acquitted yet they admitted to their deed in an interview after the trial

It’s a very fitting name as there are several parallels between Emmett Till & young Emmett

Emmett Till was a young black man and if you are a black baby in places like New York or Chicago you are more likely to be aborted than born.

Young Mr. Till was brutalized by those who killed him. Young Emmett wa literally torn into pieces.

The people who killed Emmett Till admitted what they did and were proud of it. The people who tore apart young Emmett are not only proud of it, laughed about it but are paid to do so.

In the Days of Emmett Till there were those who would defend his killers and the mindset that allowed it, including pols looking for their votes. Today there is an entire political partly and hundreds on social media tweeting hashtags asking others to stand behind those who tore apart young Emmett for profit.

Oh and there is one more important parallel. Emmett Till’s battered body was showed to the world so people could see what had been done to him making it impossible pretend otherwise. The video of young Emmett torn apart body make it impossible for those who would cheer and defend to hide behind euphemism.

That’s why so many are so desperate for his body not to be seen and are so outraged that we object to it, because it forces those who would kill young Emmett and boys and girls like him to see what they’re doing for what it is.
