In the information age, misinformation is too often traded as a counterfeit currency in our marketplace of ideas.
The recent Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh non-scandelettes have proven this in spades. But disingenuous attacks on individual public figures are hardly the only kind of falsehood you'll find in the partisan press. Today's merchants of disinformation also trade frequently in false stereotypes of large groups of Americans, especially those who even slightly oppose abortion.
Those of you who are pro-life may not know this but despite whatever you may think, all of you are actually overweight, hyper-religious, uneducated, spouse-beating, rural, white males. Or at least that's what you are in the minds of the fanatically pro-choice left.
That false stereotype died a terrible death in at least one person's mind recently when pro-choice activist Eleanor Bader "infiltrated" the National Right to Life Committee's annual convention. Much to her surprise, the media's reportage on the pro-life movement was simply incorrect. Luckily for the public discourse, pro-life writer Samantha Singson managed to attend and report Bader's shocked findings

Did Bader ever learn that pro-lifers are motivated by love of the unborn — or does she still cling to the media stereotype that they hate women?
That’s a great point.
Mr. Scheffield ... you really need to lose the "mustache."
And once again, truth sets someone free from the bondage woven of lies.
And fear strong women.
Wrong. She's still at it. At the end of the article she says, "It's abortion and it's good."
Truth slapped her in the face and she still denies it.
Her eternity will be most unpleasant for rejecting the truth.
She’s a child who never grew up.
>> And fear strong women.
A common refrain from obnoxious women that can’t land a date.
My wife is strong. But, she’s also humble enough that she wouldn’t call herself strong. Perhaps men aren’t afraid of “strong women” ... perhaps we just don’t care for obnoxious women who continually talk about how “strong” they are.
I’m convinced that this “men are scared of strong/ successful women” nonsense is simply a fallback position for irritating feminists who refuse to admit they can’t get dates because people simply don’t like them (i.e. they don’t like me, therefore they must fear greatness).
Strong, or bossy?
Strong, or b1tchy?
Strong, or in your face?
Strong, or NO friggin’ sense of humor AT ALL?
Strong, or continually PMS-ing?
There IS a difference and it’s real.
Strong and with an attitude? Strong and with an education? Strong and will take you on in court? Strong and think your ideas are subject to testing? Strong and don’t like being talked over? Strong and with a sense of humor you seem to have lost? Strong and use words carefully? Need I continue?
I think it was R. Emmett Tyrell who wrote "Women who are feminists don't know how to be feminine".
And Rush Limbaugh wrote ...
Undeniable Truth of Life #24:
“Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.”
NO, please see post 15.
Substitute "pro-lifers" with "African-Americans," and "NRLC Convention" with "Sylvia's in Harlem," and you essentially have the Bill O'Reilly discussion with Juan Williams.
She's been warned. That is all we can do.
When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. --Ezekiel 3:18 (NIV)
"Liberalism" is founded on lies, as MoveOn and MediaMatters display so effectively. So it is crucial that conservatives take care to always be as truthful as possible. When a disillusioned or curious liberal allows some doubt to creep in, he has to know where to turn.
We carry the twin torches of liberty and learning through the darkness of the age. It behooves us solemnly to guard them well.
