Great Moments in Liberal “Logic” – UPDATED

Corporations aren’t people (because Social Justice), but monkeys are, because Social Justice.

Pass the Tylenol.

UPDATE: Is it just me, or has this idiot judge inadvertently handed Right to Life a great slogan?  Next time some NARAL loon starts going off about a fetus being “just a clump of cells,” pro-lifers should reply “it’s a non-human person!!”

    Yep, run into this quite a lot. “Corporations aren’t People!” “What do you have against M.A.D.D. and the Red Cross?” “……………”

    The unborn aren’t persons? How do they function with the faulty syllogisms and illogic that wrack their little brains.\?

    Nope. A fetus — which, if nature were allowed to take its course, could only become a human being — is not a person. An orangutan is, though.

    Come to think of it, Right to Life ought to try that one out — “It’s not a clump of cells, it’s a non-human person!” If it’s good enough for an Argentine court, it ought to be good enough for the 9th Circuit.

      The pro-life movement hopefully will not do this. The whole legalized abortion position relies on reducing the fetus’ status vs. the mother – think of those stupid picture ads that show a skyscraper, a fetus, and a woman, with copy that reads that conservatives consider one of them less than human.

      I’m not interested in conceding a point that they could never hope to win fairly.

        True, true… I was more highlighting the incoherence of the liberal position than suggesting a serious debate tactic.

        An orangutan is not a person, and can never be a person, no matter what we do to it. A fetus can’t not be a person, unless it is artificially prevented from doing so. And yet, the ape gets “rights.”

        Logic! Ugh! Good God, y’all! What is it good for? Absolutely nothin’! (say it again now!)

          No, I got that, Sev. Forgive me if I came across as making that personal. I get this involuntary twitch at even the hint of substituting tactical cleverness for principle. It is a tactic the enemy has mastered, and it twists round and cuts us every time we try to use it. We have to hold the principle first, and be tactical second, or they’ll see through us – because they know better than anyone else how hollow are their own tactical flourishes.

          Recent case in point – W branding himself a “compassionate conservative.” It a moment, we undid forty years of insisting that “conservative” wasn’t a synonym for “heartless,” because otherwise, why would you have to qualify it? The Left will be spinning gold from that strawman for another forty years.

          1. Severian

            I see your point.

            The only “tactic” we should use consistently isn’t a tactic at all — pointing out the simple, obvious, undeniable fact that liberals aren’t nearly as smart as they think they are. “A fetus isn’t a person, but an orangutan is” is such an obviously retarded statement that it takes at least four years of grad school to be able to make it comfortably.

        So we use that age old tactic of this country: compromise!

        “I’ll agree to take away corporation ‘personhood’ if you agree to give it to fetuses.”

        “I’ll support government granted right to healthcare, in exchange for free guns.”

        “I’ll vote for your tax hike, if you’ll vote for my 3-days in July IRS agent hunting season.”

        I used to have a bunch of these prepared (I knew I was on the right track if I could make everybody mad).
