CNN’s Anderson Cooper, certainly not a conservative at all, took on Democratic Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in an interview after she sent out a letter to supporters in which she distorted facts regarding how the RNC built it’s pro-life platform.
Here’s the letter Schultz sent out to supporters on Tuesday:
Here’s the Republican Party’s message to women in 2012: No choice. No exceptions.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are now, incredibly, saying they don’t agree with the policies of the party whose nomination they’re about to accept, but guess what? The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that the platform was, and I quote, “written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.”
This is some pretty unbelievable stuff, even by Mitt Romney standards.
It’s up to us to make sure voters see through this and know just how dangerously wrong for women these candidates are — but we can’t do it without your help. Donate $3 or more today.
Romney, Ryan and the Republican Party are showing their true colors — and just how dangerous they will be for women if they’re victorious on Election Day. We can’t let them continue to say one thing to the public while privately pushing to make it harder for women to control their own bodies.
We know what we’re up against. And if we aren’t able to give Democrats the resources they need to win in November, women in America stand to lose decades of progress.
I’m not willing to let that happen, and I know you aren’t either. Donate $3 or more today to give Democrats the resources we need to fight back against this dangerous hypocrisy:
It’s 2012. The entire Republican Party just said it wants a constitutional amendment telling rape survivors they don’t get to make their own health care decisions. Democrats across the country are fighting back.
Help us fight.
You’ll notice I’ve emphasized a particular section of the letter in which she claims that the LA Times reported that the GOP’s platform on abortion was “written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.” She also tried to link Romney’s view with that of Rep. Todd Akin, which is vastly differently. Romney is not pro-life. He is still pro-choice, despite his rhetoric. He always has been. He is in favor of abortion in the event of rape and incest, as if that justifies murdering an unborn baby.
The point though is that Cooper said that she misrepresented the LA Times’ story in order to bolster he claim in the letter. He quoted the article which read,
“Delegates for presumptive nominee Mitt Romney are voting down substantive changes to the platform language that was written at the direction of Romney’s campaign.”
The point is that the delegates voted down the language the Romney campaign offered. The Romney campaign wasn’t directing anything about the platform.
But that mattered not to DWS. She continued to say “doesn’t matter,” because her point was still valid. So let’s get this straight. The Democrats are on record as saying the “ends justify the means.” They aren’t the only ones doing that, but this is an excellent example of one of their own liberals calling them on their lies and they simply justify lying to further their agenda and their agenda does not exclude infanticide.
