The Right Word: The world turned upside down

Laura Ingraham declares war on social issues, Rush Limbaugh wants unemployment to go up and Michael Savage has to save the world.

In the aftermath of the Planned Parenthood sting operation, Laura Ingraham warns conservatives that now is not the time take a back seat on social issues. (Listen to clip)

“It’s clearly going to be the ruination of the party if the party goes down this, again, kindlier, gentler, compassionate conservatism – ‘yeah, I’m pro-life, but I don’t want to talk about it,’ ‘yeah, I believe these things but, ugh, makes me uncomfortable.’ Because it’s kind of who we are, right? We try to stand up for the most defenceless and those who can’t speak for themselves.”

What got Ingraham so upset was a rumour (which she is working on substantiating) that pro-life Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels once hosted a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood and recently called for a truce on social issues.

I would say that any Republican who calls himself or herself pro-life should not be having a truce with Planned Parenthood. Because Planned Parenthood gets our taxpayer dollars: $300mn every year, $362m, I believe, every year. And we’re going to declare a truce on social issues when Planned Parenthood clearly has engaged in these practices in their clinics, which I can’t see how you can interpret it any other way other than turning a blind eye on the child sex trafficking trade?!

Ingraham is referring, of course, to the sting operation orchestrated by the anti-abortion group Live Action….
