As AOC Refuses to Help Migrants at the Border, Pro-Lifers Take Supplies to Help Families

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood by her “principles” and refused to vote for funding to help support the ever-growing migrant crowd at the border and deepening the crisis everyday. The legislation passed without “The Squad’s” help, but regardless, AOC was able to stand tall knowing that she stuck it to those racist Republicans by not helping the needy central Americans at the border.

What a warrior.

Where AOC and her ilk fail, a pro-life group refuses to. Known as the New Wave Feminists, this group of women is constantly making supply runs to holding areas where migrants are taken in order to help them. According to National Review, they’ve been doing this since December:

In December, “our ragtag secular lady gang” raised just under $10,000 dollars to take two van loads of supplies to the Humanitarian Respite Center” in McAllen, Texas, Rachel Lamb, director of Humanitarian Outreach for New Wave Feminists explains. (They were encouraged by the director of the center to bring the supplies and help process the gifts themselves, because volunteers are stretched there.) “We raised another $1,000 to have more toilet facilities built.” Their current campaign has a deadline of July 13 for another delivery.

“We are pro-life because we care about the inherit human dignity of every living person, inside the womb and out,” Herndon-De La Rosa says. She feels a heightened responsibility to not look away from people at the border because “as a Texan . . . it’s happening in my backyard,” she notes. “All are vulnerable and all are human beings.”

Kendra Stanton Lee is a writer at Medium who had just gotten done complaining that pro-lifers didn’t care about the plight of the children at the border, noting that religious organizations had stayed quiet about the crisis thus far. Then she heard about New Wave Feminists, and learned that pro-life organizations were doing more in the background than she had originally thought:

Reached by phone, Herndon-de la Rosa said she had made the same voyage in December 2018 to bring toiletries to a respite humanitarian center in McAllen, Texas run by Sr. Norma Pimentel. At that time, Herndon-de la Rosa said the center was overwhelmed and undersupplied, welcoming 800 new visitors per day, brought by ICE after their detainment. When Herndon-de la Rosa returned home, she knew she needed to enlist more help to make another such delivery. Herndon-de la Rosa was able to obtain sponsorship from more than 50 pro-life organizations to raise $133,000 toward supplies like formula, diapers, and other toiletries.

It becomes tiresome listening to the left proclaim that we don’t seem to care about children outside the womb. Not only do organizations help feed and care for children at the border, the Catholic church has also sent aid.

While you hear people like Ocasio-Cortez attempt to virtue signal over the treatment of people at the border, just remember that she spent her time fake crying at a gate that blocked off an empty parking lot while pro-life organizations did the heavy lifting to actually help.

Planned Parenthood President Launches Disgusting Attack Against Crisis Pregnancy Centers

This kind of thing is just depraved.

The vast majority of Planned Parenthood’s “services” boil down to performing abortions or some aspect leading up to performing an abortion. Given the great work Crisis Pregnancy Centers do to actually take care of women, you’d think Planned Parenthood would just slink away in shame and leave them alone.

But nope, these people have no shame.

This is total garbage and disgustingly dishonest.

They are health centers, whether Leana Wen wants to consider them that or not. In fact, they provide far more vital services for women than Planned Parenthood does.

At no point do CPCs offer misinformation to their clients. Instead, they offer them the full picture of what abortion is and the emotional issues having one can bring on. They let women know that there are other, actual humane ways to deal with an unwanted pregnancy aside from scrambling the child’s brain and sucking it out with a vacuum. PPFA has been notoriously exposed in the past for pushing abortion as the only viable option while counseling women not to choose adoption.

I’ve also never heard of a CPC shaming a woman. With thousands of them in existence, I’m sure some worker has gotten out over their skis, but the idea that there’s a culture of shame in CPCs is abject, slanderous nonsense. It’s the opposite in my experience (as someone who gives yearly to a center and whose wife has volunteered at it).

CPCs exist all over the country providing vital services to women who choose life. They do things Planned Parenthood won’t do, like provide actual pre-natal care, post-natal care, welfare assistance, diapers, bottles, counseling, parenting classes, etc. In other words, they actually care about the women who come through their doors.

Ask yourself what PPFA has to gain by slamming CPCs? The answer is simply money. The more women don’t choose abortion, the less the ghouls at Planned Parenthood make in cash because it’s literally their entire profit base, whether they want to admit it or not.

Killing kids is good for business for Dr. Wen and her cohorts. Instead of being cowards and attacking CPCs, they should just admit it and perhaps reflect on the evil they are inflicting on society.

Report: Multiple Death Threats Sent to Theater Managers Screening Pro-Life “Unplanned” Movie

Westlake Legal Group unplanned-screenshot Report: Multiple Death Threats Sent to Theater Managers Screening Pro-Life “Unplanned” Movie unplanned Pro-Life Politics movie Media Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment democrats crime Allow Media Exception Abortion

The pro-life movie Unplanned, which tells the story of former Planned Parenthood abortion facility manager Abby Johnson’s journey from being an abortion advocate to a pro-life activist, has been running into trouble from the moment it arrived on the world stage. Between attempts by social media giants to silence it and activists trying to tarnish it, Unplanned has generated no shortage of anger from the pro-abortion left.

Now, according to LifeSite, several managers of private movie theaters have had to cancel their screenings of the pro-life film after receiving credible death threats. The reports come from B.J. McKelvie, pastor and president of Fredericton-based Cinedicom according to LifeSite, who has confirmed that police are now involved:

McKelvie confirmed to LifeSiteNews that two Canadian independent cinema owners contacted police after receiving death threats they perceived as credible, and that they are “fearful for their families.”

Another Canadian independent theatre owner “has been harrassed to the extreme.”

One of the two owners who contacted the police has cancelled the Unplanned screening, but all the rest “are holding their ground,” McKelvie said.

He did not want to identify the locations, particularly because “it’s a police matter,” he told LifeSiteNews.

The alleged death threats are aimed at independent theatre owners because “they didn’t get anywhere with Cineplex, or they didn’t get anywhere with Landmark,” McKelvie said.

“It’s just a movie. The topic is certainly a hot topic,” said McKelvie. “However, it is just a movie. I find it ironic, they talk about choice, pro-choice, pro-choice, pro-choice, but they’re not giving people a choice to go see the movie.”

The film has had a lot of underhanded things done to it in order for information about it to stay minimal. Twitter was causing accounts to automatically unfollow the movie’s official Twitter account. Several videos of people following the account, clicking off, and then click back on to see that they had been removed from the follower’s list showed up on the internet.

Other attempts to generate ire toward Unplanned involved ginning up narratives that the movie would inspire people to go out and hurt, or even kill someone due to the fact that the film gets the anti-abortion message across too well.

The irony here is that we have people threatening death upon innocent people because they’re showing a film that shows you the horrors of an organization who deals in the death of innocent children daily, and all in the name of silencing said film because it might convince people to cause death.

Astounding logic.

Biology Fail: Twitter Erupts After Dem Presidential Candidate Promotes Abortion Rights for … Transgender Women

Westlake Legal Group JulianCastroDemDebate3-620x353 Biology Fail: Twitter Erupts After Dem Presidential Candidate Promotes Abortion Rights for … Transgender Women transgender Texas Social Media Pro-Life Politics North Carolina MSNBC LGBTQ LGBT Julian Castro Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Campaigns Allow Media Exception Abortion 2020 Elections 2020

Presidential candidate Julian Castro speaks at the Democratic debate – 6/26/19. Screen grab via MSNBC.

When it comes to so-called “abortion rights”, Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro believes no one should be excluded from the right to choose – including men who identify as women.

At last night’s Democratic debate, Castro was asked about his position on abortion rights and if his healthcare plan would cover abortion costs. Here’s what the former housing secretary had to say:

“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is just because a woman, or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.”

Watch Castro’s remarks below:

There’s just one slight problem with this answer: Men cannot get pregnant.

Twitter users noticed, and responded:

Greg at Twitchy documented many more reactions here.

Castro was clearly proud of his answer, as he tweeted out video of it later in the evening:

It’s quite possible Castro was referring to transgender MEN, as they are women who identify as men and can still have a baby, depending on where they are in the transition process.

But that’s not what he said so, you know, we have lots of questions on this matter.

GoFundMe Partnership With Planned Parenthood Proves Abortion Doesn’t Need Government Funding

Westlake Legal Group abortion-on-demand-without-apology GoFundMe Partnership With Planned Parenthood Proves Abortion Doesn’t Need Government Funding Pro-Life Politics planned parenthood gofundme Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception aclu abortion funding Abortion

With the abortion industry taking some heavy blows in the face of pro-life legislation and states turning on abortion organizations with gusto, celebrities, activists, and politicians have been pulling out all the stops to keep the practice of taking life in the womb alive and well.

This also includes various businesses, with the fundraising site “GoFundMe” throwing its hat into the ring, and directly partnering with Planned Parenthood to raise funds in order to fight back against pro-life causes.

GoFundMe sent out a tweet from their account telling everyone that they have partnered with Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Network of Abortion Funds to donate money to organizations that will fight to keep abortion alive in states where it’s being restricted.

The fundraiser, titled “Fight Back: Protect Abortion Access,” centers on the idea that the attack on abortion by various states isn’t just a threat to abortion in those states, but everywhere across America, and that people should give to the fundraiser if they wish to keep it alive:

We’re teaming up to fuel the fight against these bans – and make sure that every person who needs abortion care can actually get it, without delay.

The ‘Fight Back’ campaign is a centralized fundraiser enabling each donor to fund legal battles in court, provide critical services all across the country, join the movement to protect access to safe, legal abortion, and encourage legislative bodies to take steps to protect reproductive rights  — all with a single donation.

The fundraiser promises to do three things with the money:

-Remove the many financial and logistical barriers to abortion access – including offsetting the cost of transportation, childcare, lodging, and abortion procedures – that too many patients face;

-Fuel the fight in the courts to protect access for EVERY patient, and keep health center doors open for patients who need care; and,

-Help continue on-the-ground organizing in states to protect access, build the movement, and ensure elected officials everywhere support comprehensive reproductive health care.

It also notes that 25 percent will be going to the NNAF, 37.5 percent to Planned Parenthood organizations, and 37.5 percent to the ACLU.

I want to point out something that all of these organizations may have overlooked, and that’s the fact that they’re proving that organizations like Planned Parenthood don’t need government funding. It can raise funds for the practice all on its own.

At this time, Planned Parenthood receives approximately $500 million a year, with taxpayers footing the bill. This does not include the various donations they receive from celebrity-backed donation drives or fundraising efforts like the kind we see above.

Hilariously, the abortion industry’s attempts at fundraising may not be as popular as it had hoped. At the time of this writing, the fundraiser has been live for six days and has only received over $40,000 worth donations from 306 people. Compared to the swiftness with which some GoFundMe campaigns receive donations. For comparison, the GoFundMe for the border wall is 616 times that amount with well over $24 million in donations that are still rolling in by the minute. This is pretty sad for Planned Parenthood.

I will make note that the wall fundraiser has been active for six months, not six days, but the difference is still very striking. It would appear that abortion isn’t as popular as some of these groups may have hoped.

What’s more, the announcement on Twitter didn’t seem to go as well as they hoped, with Twitter users expressing anger at the company for partnering with abortion causes, and some swearing they’ll never participate in a GoFundMe campaign again.

Video: Ben Sasse Gives Impassioned Floor Speech on the Left’s Abortion Extremism, Torches Gillibrand’s Absolutism

Westlake Legal Group BenSasseSenate-620x366 Video: Ben Sasse Gives Impassioned Floor Speech on the Left’s Abortion Extremism, Torches Gillibrand’s Absolutism washington D.C. progressives Pro-Life Politics planned parenthood North Carolina Nebraska Kirsten Gillibrand Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture & Faith Culture Conservatives Congress Campaigns Ben Sasse Allow Media Exception Abortion 2020 Elections 2020

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) speaks on the floor of the U.S. Senate – 6/21/19. Screen grab via Sasse’s You Tube channel.

In the aftermath of the Democratic party’s disturbing far leftward lurch on abortion this year, including supporting allowing babies who survive botched abortions to die, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) took to the floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday to decry their position, and note how out of touch they’d become with the American people.

Noting that several of the Democratic candidates for president would be appearing this weekend at a Planned Parenthood forum in South Carolina, Sasse said that the Democratic party has become more extreme over the years on abortion, going from advocating for “safe, legal, and rare” to free abortions on demand, and comparing pro-lifers to racists and anti-Semitics:

And in fact, it’s actually worse than this – because the position of every senator running for the Democratic nomination, and at least one governor, is that a living, breathing baby who survives an abortion procedure can be left to die after birth. All seven senators running for the Democratic presidential nomination voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act earlier this year, and Governor Bullock, of Montana, vetoed a state-level version of the bill, just before he entered the race. So as things currently stand, it’s entirely possible that the Democratic nominee for the highest office in our land in 2020 will be publicly agnostic about the moral status of post-abortion infanticide. Morally agnostic about post-abortion infanticide.

[…]

As Democrats’ abortion positions have become more extreme, they have not sought to even persuade fellow citizens with whom they disagree. Rather, they have become openly hostile to Americans who disagree on this great moral challenge. My colleague from New York, for instance, Senator Gillibrand — who will be attending this weekend’s forum in South Carolina — made her feelings clear earlier this month in an interview with the Des Moines Register. In promising that she would only appoint judges who would uphold Roe v. Wade, here’s what she said. Listen to this quote:

“I think there are some issues that have such moral clarity that we have as a society decided that the other side is not acceptable. Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist or anti-Semitic or homophobic. . . .

This is not an issue where there is a fair other side. There is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom.”

After pointing out how outside of the mainstream Gillibrand’s stance on abortion is, Sasse went on to talk about the racist origins of Planned Parenthood – specifically its founder Margaret Sanger, who was a eugenicist. Sasse noted that the ugly eugenics and racism of the abortion movement did not die out with Sanger, but is in fact still very much a part of it today:

We could also note that it’s in part because of this ugly history that black women in America are three and a half times more likely to have an abortion than white women. And in some parts of Senator Gillibrand’s home state, black children are actually more likely to be aborted than to be carried to term. Or we could point to the continued eugenic use of abortion. For example, to kill children who have non-life-threatening diseases. In the United States today, two-thirds of all babies in the womb who are found to have down syndrome are aborted. Two-thirds of all babies found to have down syndrome in the U.S. are now aborted. And in some parts of Europe the rate is pushing 100% and there are public ad campaigns in two nations in Europe to celebrate the fact that they’ve gotten rid of all of their down syndrome babies.

But instead of going point by point, I’ll just recommend that anyone who wants to better understand this disturbing history should read Justice Clarence Thomas’s concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky last month, which came down late last month. I guess that, according to my Senate colleague, Justice Thomas is one of those racists – those notorious pro-life racists that are stalking America.

Life News HQ has the full transcript of the speech, which you can read here. You can also watch it below:

Sasse has a 100% rating with the National Right to Life, and 0% ratings with both Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

Under construction: Planned Parenthood builds huge clinic in Alabama

Westlake Legal Group Planned-Parenthood Under construction: Planned Parenthood builds huge clinic in Alabama The Blog Pro-Life planned parenthood Alabama Abortion

There are three clinics in Alabama that are open and performing abortions – in Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, and Huntsville. Planned Parenthood does not operate any of them. Planned Parenthood is determined to jump into the abortion business in Alabama in a big way, despite the new law signed by Governor Kay Ivey.

A new clinic is under construction in Birmingham that will replace an existing Planned Parenthood clinic. Construction began in January 2019, long before the bill came out of the state legislative session and could be completed by November 2019. The new restrictive abortion law (the only exemption allowed is if the life of the mother is in danger) goes into effect in November. This sets up the potential for a collision between pro-abortion and pro-life Alabamans. Pro-life groups vow to oppose the clinic’s opening but Planned Parenthood claims neither the new law or abortion opponents were a factor in the construction project.

It will be a large facility, the largest in Alabama offering the services of Planned Parenthood – abortion, birth control, cancer testing, and screening for sexually transmitted diseases.

Located beside an interstate highway in downtown Birmingham, the 10,000-square-foot structure is now nothing but a steel frame and roof. Workers under the constant watch of security guards appear to be installing electrical wiring, plus heating and cooling units.

Planned Parenthood is one of the groups who sued the state over the new abortion law. No court date has been set. Both pro-life and pro-abortion sides hope the Supreme Court will ultimately have to weigh in on the law. In the meantime, other methods will be used to try and block the clinic’s opening.

Groups including Planned Parenthood have sued to block the law, which supporters hope will become the vehicle that a conservative-leaning U.S. Supreme Court uses to gut the 1972 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

But no court hearing is set, so abortion opponents say they hope the opening will be blocked by some combination of the new law, public pressure, and a state agency.

Regardless of the law, abortion opponents aim to convince the Alabama Department of Public Health to deny a license for the facility, and they’ve tried to convince construction contractors to refuse work on the building through phone calls and emails, said Rev. Terry Gensemer of Metro Birmingham Life Forum.

Barbara Ann Luttrell, a spokeswoman for the Atlanta-based Planned Parenthood Southeast, said Planned Parenthood has been counted on for decades in Birmingham. The organization’s commitment to continuing to provide their services is strong.

The clinic would replace a current Planned Parenthood clinic in Birmingham. According to opponents, abortions have not been performed regularly at that location since 2017. The nonprofit’s clinic in Mobile is closed for renovation.

Though local religious leaders publicly voice concerns that the construction of the new clinic continues, it really shouldn’t be a surprise to them. It is quite unlikely that the Alabama law will survive the legal challenges due to its restrictive language. It would be the most severely anti-abortion law in the land. Planned Parenthood is counting on the legal challenges going their way. If it went all the way to the Supreme Court, the question for the conservative-leaning majority of the Justices will be if they find the omission of rape and incest as exemptions too severe.

“It was surprising when we found out that they were going to build this,” said Gensemer. “My question is after the bill passage, why are they continuing to be so aggressive when the possibility exists that they won’t be able to be in business?”

But an opponent of the project, the Rev. Harry Reeder of the influential Briarwood Presbyterian Church in suburban Birmingham, said the clinic is “designed to give false counsel” to women that abortion is the best way to handle an unwanted pregnancy.

“We still stand and we will kneel in prayer that this facility will not be built,” Reeder during a news conference across the street from the construction site Thursday

Records show that Planned Parenthood paid $430,600 to purchase the lot where the new construction is taking place. The only slowdown on the project has come from rainy spring weather.

Pro-Abortion NARAL Posts Perhaps the Most Tone-Deaf Father’s Day Tweet in the History of Twitter

Westlake Legal Group naral-shirt-SCREENSHOT-620x339 Pro-Abortion NARAL Posts Perhaps the Most Tone-Deaf Father’s Day Tweet in the History of Twitter washington D.C. twitter Social Media progressives Pro-Life Politics North Carolina NARAL Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post Father's Day democrats Culture Allow Media Exception Abortion

Imagine waking up on Father’s Day, grabbing a cup of coffee, the Sunday paper, and your cell phone to catch up on the latest news and social media goings-on before the celebration of the big day gets started.

Eyes still only halfway open from sleep, you slowly scroll down your Twitter feed and see one of two things:

An absolutely absurd tweet from NARAL Pro-Choice America wishing pro-choice dads a Happy Father’s Day, or, if you’re like me, you read Twitchy‘s mockery of the tweet (which is the much better option in this case).

Worse still, you notice NARAL’s tweet contains an image of a dad holding an infant child who is carrying a sign proclaiming she is a “battle born feminist” – the clear insinuation being that the baby is pro-choice.

This isn’t a nightmare. It actually happened:

In addition to this vile message, the group posted a “Men for Choice” Father’s Day letter on their website, which was signed by a number of pro-abortion men who hole public office. The letter reads, in part:

As a society, we cannot reward a misogynist with a vote for president. When our leaders treat women as less than equal and enact policies that perpetuate gender inequality, that hurts all of us. We need a president who will fight for reproductive freedom so our entire families can get ahead.

Planned Parenthood, in contrast, did not post a Father’s Day message on their Twitter feed or website. Thank goodness.

Their global account, however, posted a tweet on Mother’s Day that left a lot to be desired:

Their U.S. Twitter account wasn’t any better (h/t: Life News HQ):

This was on top of the child-centered video posted by Dr. Leana Wen, the president of Planned Parenthood, that same day:

We can’t get lucky enough for both groups to delete their Twitter accounts, but it sure enough would be nice if they at least avoided social media on Mother’s and Father’s days.

Their tone-deafness is just staggering.

GOP Rep. Will Hurd Is Disinvited From a Tech Conference Because He’s Pro-Life, and Dan Crenshaw Isn’t Having It

Texas Technology Social Media republicans Pro-Life Politics North Carolina Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Dan Crenshaw Culture Conservatives Congress Allow Media Exception Abortion

Apparently the Democratic war on pro-lifers now extends to events and conferences that have nothing whatsoever to do with the abortion debate.

According a report from the Fox News, Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX-23) was disinvited from an August cybersecurity conference last week because he is pro-life:

Hurd, a former undercover CIA officer and an advocate for cybersecurity on Capitol Hill, was invited to speak at Black Hat, one of biggest cyber security conferences in the country, being held in Las Vegas in August. But Tech Crunch security editor Zach Whittaker highlighted on Thursday what he described was Hurd’s “terrible voting record on women’s rights.” It includes voting against funding for Planned Parenthood, programs supporting women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields, and his support on restricting late-term abortions.

Black Hat initially defended its decision to invite Hurd, saying in a statement “Hurd has a strong background in computer science and information security and has served as an advocate for specific cybersecurity initiatives in Congress,” adding that he will offer a “unique perspective” at the conference.

That did not, however, halt the uproar from the cybersecurity community, with some threatening to pull their involvement in the conference.

As a result of the backlash, Black Hat caved:

“Black Hat has chosen to remove U.S. Representative Will Hurd as our 2019 Black Hat USA Keynote. We misjudged the separation of technology and politics,” said a statement. “We will continue to focus on technology and research, however we recognize that Black Hat USA is not the appropriate platform for the polarizing political debate resulting from our choice of speaker.”

“We are still fully dedicated to providing an inclusive environment and apologize that this decision did not reflect that sentiment,” the statement added.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) slammed the decision:

Yep.

I also wonder if anyone at Black Hat sees the irony in disinviting Hurd (who was not going to speak on pro-life issues) in the interest of not wanting to be seen as taking part in “polarizing political debates.” In axing him from the speaking engagement because of the fauxtrage expressed by concern-troll techies, that’s exactly what Black Hat did.

Hurd’s office responded in a statement:

“Representative Hurd was honored to be invited and hopes that the Black Hat Conference is a success,” said Katie Thompson, Hurd’s communications director, via email.

“Congressman Hurd has always sought to engage groups of people that don’t necessarily agree with all of his votes or opinions. That’s why Rep. Hurd is one of the loudest voices for bipartisanship in Congress.”

She continued: “This Congress alone he voted for equal pay for equal work, for the Violence Against Women Act and the Equality Act.”

Apparently that wasn’t bipartisan enough for the “you will be made to care” caucus. You are either 100% loyal to the pro-abortion cause, or you are the enemy and will be ostracized and shunned.

GOP Representative Dis-Invited From Speaking at Cyber Security Conference Over Unrelated Pro-Life Views

The “Black Hat Conference” is a cyber security forum that happens every year. It features plenty of politicians but also draws some people with genuine knowledge of the arena. One of those people who actually knows what he’s talking about is Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX). He’s a former CIA officer and specializes in the area.

He was scheduled to be a keynote speaker at the conference until something happened.

The short of it is that some pro-abortion liberals ran and cried about Hurd’s pro-life views and that got him uninvited as a keynote speaker. Here’s what was said by the conference spokesperson in response to the rescinding of the invite.

“We misjudged the separation of technology and politics,” wrote the conference in a emailed statement.

What you misjudged is how many cowards are on your planning committee. This is a cyber security conference. What does someone’s mainstream pro-life views on abortion have to do with anything? And what is gained by caving into those that complained?

Hurd gave your typical boilerplate response to being shunned.

“Representative Hurd was honored to be invited and hopes that the Black Hat Conference is a success,” said Katie Thompson, Hurd’s communications director, via email.

“Congressman Hurd has always sought to engage groups of people that don’t necessarily agree with all of his votes or opinions. That’s why Rep. Hurd is one of the loudest voices for bipartisanship in Congress.

With all due respect to the Congressman, this isn’t going to cut it. Taking the high road is just going to get you thrown off the road all together.

What’s happening here is profoundly dangerous. We’ve already seen numerous examples of this in blue states banning business with red states over the passage of state laws. The new trend on the left isn’t just condemnation when people disagree, it’s complete destruction and isolation. Say something they don’t agree with? They’ll organize a boycott of your advertisers or get you thrown out of a conference. It’s not enough to just say “I disagree” for these people.

This is the future and I don’t mean that dramatically. This is really the future.

Republicans better wake up sooner rather than later and realize the rules of the game have changed. De-platforming, financial destruction, mobbing, and total shunning from society are the left’s tactics now. Responding by wishing them success, as Hurd did here, is not a viable counter strategy.

We either fight on a level playing field or we will lose. Time for some GOP politicians to decide what they want their fate to be because this is coming for everyone.
