"The Socialist Student Union at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. set a new low for gauche and tasteless behavior this week by covering the green lawn outside the campus center with wire coat hangers to mock a prior event at the school sponsored by students opposed to abortion.
Back in January, on National Sanctity of Human Life Day, Winthrop’s College Republicans had covered the same plot of land with a vast multitude of flags representing abortions, reports Campus Reform.
Naturally, a bunch of those flags representing aborted babies were either stolen or crushed under unidentified feet.
The Socialist Student Union’s display of wire hangers was designed to promote an event called Abortion 360, which occurred on Tuesday at Winthrop. The Abortion 360 event was so named in response to an anti-abortion film shown by College Republicans named 'Abortion 180.'
The Abortion 360 event featured Jennifer Disney, a political science professor at Winthrop who also runs the women’s studies program. The point was to “provide a different perspective on reproductive rights and the abortion debate.”
Disney’s 2002 Ph.D. dissertation was called 'The Theories and Practices of Women’s Organizing: Marxism, Feminism, Democratization, and Civil Society in Mozambique and Nicaragua.'
Every student who attended the Abortion 360 event racked up a “cultural event credit” from Winthrop, notes Campus Reform.
Students at the public, taxpayer-funded school must collect 20 such credits to graduate."
I just got finished paying my South Carolina state taxes. I want my money back.
I wonder what would have happened if someone had come in the night and hung pictures of Dr. Kermit Gosnell on those coat hangers?
The misguided young socialists at Winthrop and their professors wouldn't get it, but I bet they would clean up their coat hangers if anybody messed with them, and eventually they would get even, if the history of past Marxist/socialist revolutions holds true to form.
The current revolution, in its glorification of abortion, is targeting morality. Once traditional morality is undermined, it can be replaced by a new one.
I think I have seen this pattern before...
"The bourgeoisie, which far surpasses the proletariat in the completeness and irreconcilability of its class consciousness, is vitally interested in imposing its moral philosophy upon the exploited masses. It is exactly for this purpose that the concrete norms of the bourgeois catechism are concealed under moral abstractions patronized by religion, philosophy, or that hybrid which is called “common sense”. The appeal to abstract norms is not a disinterested philosophic mistake but a necessary element in the mechanics of class deception. The exposure of this deceit which retains the tradition of thousands of years is the first duty of a proletarian revolutionist." Leon Trotsky, "Their Morals and Ours" 1938.
What is the inevitable outcome of the devaluation of human life? It becomes just another resource to feed the appetite of Molech.
"My friends, this is what happens at the confluence of socialized medicine, the decline of morality and environmentalism.
According to the UK Telegraph, the remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as ‘clinical waste’ by hospitals in Britain with some used in ‘waste to energy plants.'” Allen West
