(www.RemnantNewspaper.com) If this presidential campaign and election proved anything, it’s that President Barack Obama locked up the Fluke vote.
According to an NBC exit poll, Obama drew 67 percent of single women. That isn’t to say all single women are Flukes, of course; but most Flukes are single women. Obama worked hard to get that vote, with his full-throated support for Planned Parenthood, abortion on demand and free contraception for all. He also got the vote from single men, at 56 percent, and, of course, the sodomite vote, at 76 percent. In other words, he received a hefty vote from those with a vested political and cultural interest in sexual license.
Yet the attention Obama and the Democrats gave single women proves the obverse of what leftists allege: that Christian or conservative Republicans are obsessed with sex and sexual matters. Indeed, the left has used this meme — those opposed to sexual license are “uptight” or have a “hang-up,” as they said in the Woodstock Era — to advance the sexual revolution and desensitize Christians to perversion. Thus, the left is obsessed with sex. As the Weekly Standard reported, the Obama Campaign website featured an “e card” (subsequently scrubbed) that said, “Vote like your lady parts depend on it.” Below that, it read, “Because they kinda do.”
Well, no, they didn’t, but that didn’t stop the Obama left from peddling the demagoguery. Sexual license — with “free” birth control to prevent post-coital complications and abortion-on-demand to clean them up — seems to be the one obsession of Obama and his underlings, including such “Catholics” as Vice President Joe Biden, and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Remnant readers will remember them as the pair of theologians who presumed to instruct the nation on St. Thomas Aquinas and the history of Catholic teaching on abortion.
The Most Recent Insanity
A number of recent items in the news, beyond the lowbrow e-card, make the point. Tops among them was the ad for Obama featuring Lena Dunham, a third-rate actress and director you’ve never heard of and probably don’t care to. She appeared in an advertisement that suggests a likeness between a young woman’s losing her virginity and voting for the first time in 2012 for Obama.
The double entendre is vulgar:
Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful … somebody who really cares about and understands women.
A guy who cares about whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control. The consequences are huge. You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don’t want a guy who says, “Oh hey, I’m at the library studying,” when he’s really out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act.
Or who thinks that gay people should never have beautiful, complicated weddings of the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time. It’s a fun game to say, “Who are you voting for?” and they say “I don’t want to tell you,” and you say, “No, who are you voting for,” and they go, “Guess!”
Think about how you want to spend those four years. In college age time, that’s 150 years. Also, it’s super uncool to be out and about and someone says, “Did you vote,” and “No, I didn’t vote, I wasn’t ready.” My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl. Now I was a woman. I went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. I voted for Barack Obama.
