Sharron Angle, eternal optimist.

July 8, 2010

For all of you poor women out there who’ve been victims of rape or incest (or both), and gotten pregnant as a result, Sharron Angle is here to help you. Not with family resources or anything – that shit costs money – but with excellent advice! Now, Modern Dreck ain’t a political blog and we’re not about to be one, but when anyone offers up, on a gleaming silver platter of amazingness, the best piece of advice ever issued (and that person isn’t Lindsay Lolzhan, because we’re done with that broad until she gets out of jail), we consider it our job to tell you about it. No, but seriously, be warned: what follows is sick and weird (and a potential trigger for SA survivors). Just so you know.

Sharron Angle, a Tea Party politician gunning for Sen. Harry Reid’s seat and a real gem, was on the Alan Stock radio show in late June, and one of the subjects she discussed was her pro-life stance. (FYI: Angle, is universally against abortion, which includes abortion in the cases of rape or incest.) So anyway, she’s explaining why she doesn’t think abortion is appropriate in the aforementioned cases, and she lays this one on us:

“I think that two wrongs don’t make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade. Well, one girl in particular moved in with the adoptive parents of her child, and they both were adopted. Both of them grew up, one graduated from high school, the other had parents that loved her and she also graduated from high school. And I’ll tell you the little girl who was born from that very poor situation came to me when she was 13 and said ‘I know what you did thank you for saving my life.’ So it is meaningful to me to err on the side of life.” (Quoted from HuffPo.)

Ah, yes. Lemons, lemonade. It’s a no-brainer, really. Sharron would also like you to know, if you get pregnant because of rape and/or incest, it’s a part of “God’s plan.” So if you’ve been raped your father, your brother, your cousin, someone at a family reunion, and you’ve been handed the “lemon” of a fetus, that is also your brother or nephew, because of it, you need to make lemonade. And have that baby. And hope to God you both get adopted. You probably won’t get stuck in some sort of awful Precious situation, so really, lemonade. Lemonade made especially by God, according to His plan. And one day, when you and your baby are all grown up and have (presumably) graduated high school and achieved other such honors, you’ll have Sharron Angle to thank. Which is nice. Thanks, Sharron! I feel better now, don’t you?

Also, just in case anyone was wondering, this is not the extent of Sharron Angle’s crazy. Would you like to know what else Sharron Angle has done, to accentuate the crazy? I thought so. Here you go.

And I also have to thank our friend Sharron (such a giver, really) for making today’s video choice so freaking easy for me. -The Bitch
