Stigmatizing From the Left

As always, Ann Coulter pulls no punches when holding liberals accountable for their actions and she never fails to present facts highlighting liberal hypocrisy. Mayor Bloomberg’s “Big Gulp” fiasco provided a perfect springboard for Ann to do her thing.

From Ann Coulter

Posters are popping up in subway stations and bus stops giving statistics about teen pregnancy…It’s one thing to stigmatize “Big Gulp” drinkers, but liberals are hopping mad at this attempt to stigmatize teen pregnancy, 90 percent of which is unwed. To put it another way, if you’re a New York teen with a distended belly these days, it had better be because you’re pregnant…Liberals act as if gun owners, soda-guzzlers and smokers are innocent victims of the gun, food and cigarette industries, but the $542 million-a-year birth control industry is a quarry of angels…

Far from opposing stigmas, liberals are the main propagators of them — against cigarettes, guns, plastic bags, obesity, not recycling, Fox News, racist “code words,” not liking “Lincoln” and junk food…And what exactly was the purpose of the Journal-News publishing the names and addresses of every legal gun owner in various counties in New York state a few months ago? To congratulate them? To start a hunting club?

Los Angeles has banned plastic bags at supermarkets…But a little ad campaign describing the downsides of teenage pregnancy — which is still subsidized — and liberals howl in protest…single mothers are revered victims — victims in need of an ever-expanding social safety net, staffed with well-pensioned government workers…It would be hard to make the case that fast food, plastic bags and cigarettes do more damage than single motherhood.
