Media Alert: Charmaine on Huckabee

February 13, 2009 | By | 2 Comments

huckabee_charmaine_december_07.jpgCharmaine will be appearing with Mike Huckabee on Huckabee on FOX.

She will be debating the issues spawned by the octo-birthing 33 year old Jolie-wannabee, octuplet mom Nadya Suleman.

Her bills are paid for by the taxpayers.

She might bankrupt her home state of California all by herself…and her 14 [bad word removed by editortrix] fatherless children.

George Weigel gave a lecture the other night in Your Nation’s Capital. His theme was about the cultural shift in the recent election. It was not so much that Obama had won, but who, or, rather ‘what’ the real winner was.

The real winner of the presidential election was…the 1960′s.

George Weigel recounts that the 60′s as the winner actually began when convicted felon Bill Clinton was able to remain in the office of the president. The liberals and the elites and the academics and Hollywood and mainstream media would rather have a sexual harasser remain in office than restrain — in any fashion — the libertine sexual freedom born in the 60′s generation.

Obama embodies that leftist sexual license, George Weigel writes,

My reading of Senator Obama’s record is that he is a genuine leftist: not a pragmatic liberal, like Clinton, but a true man of the left, in the European sense of the term. And that’s probably why he’s so popular in European circles.

On abortion, though, he is not simply a leftist, but a radical: in the Illinois state legislature, he led the fight against a partial-birth abortion ban, and against a law that would have given legal protection to infants who survive a late-term abortion.

From the latter, one would have to include that Senator Obama thinks a women has a right, not only to an abortion, but to a dead baby.

This is a position far, far to the left of the American mainstream. Obama’s instincts in foreign affairs are also leftist: he does not seem to understand that there are people who hate the West and who are determined to do it harm for their own reasons, not because of anything the West has putatively done for them.

The 1960′s won. It will take some time for the adults to take back power.

The sexual revolution separated sex from procreation.

And today the sexual revolution has separated procreation from sex.

The Octo-mom wanted children. Lots of them. But a husband; a father for her children wasn’t happening. No need. Like feminists the world over, she needed a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

Why a man? When the taxpayer will send home the bacon and pay the rent.

Tune in and let us know what you think. Hit time is 8pm eastern on FOX.

    Your essay on the winner of the presidential election being the immoral libertinism and leftist political ideology of the 1960s is on target. The ramifications are communism/socialism politically and further decadence in our moral/cultural arena.

    May God help us to have a spiritual and cultural revival and a return to our political heritage. Some of the damage already done will be difficult, if not impossible, to repair.

  2. What solutions are there to octo-mom and her like? I can only see two, and both have problems.

    The obvious one, reducing or eliminating government benefits, sounds good – until you realise that this just leaves a lot of people with no income, and children to feed and clothe. The only options left to them are starving to death or turning to crime. If I were in their place, I would consider burglery a good career to get into.

    The other is to restrict IVF and other fertility treatments to those able to raise the children, using some sort of means-testing. But this boils down to the government telling some people they arn’t allowed to have children, and you can imagine the public outcry this would cause! Not to mention the secondry issues that would form around the details of the policy. The first thing to come to mind would be that blacks have a much lower average income than whites, so even if the judgement is made complete race-neutral there will still be accusations of racism.

    So, will it be government waste, starving children, or the can-o-worms?
