The Inevitable You Are Only ‘Prosecuting Gosnell Because He’s Black’ Defense

In closing arguments the defense for Kermit Gosnell has resorted to claiming that the only reason Gosnell is on trial at all is because he is black.  And I guess we are then meant to assume that if Kermit just happened to be a white guy who had killed women and slaughtered live babies, then we’d still be talking about Dancing with the Stars or how no one really gives a damn what happens on American Idol anymore?

“Never have I seen the presumption of innocence so trampled on, stomped on,” said McMahon in court today, adding that the Philadelphia district attorney’s office “tried to manipulate everybody” and was pursuing an “elitist, racist prosecution.”

“Dr. Gosnell is not the only one doing abortions in Philadelphia,” McMahon said, “but he was an African American singled out for prosecution.”

“We know why he was targeted,” he said. “If you can’t see that reality, you’re living in some sort of la-la land.”

Acually, isn’t he kind of a light-skinned black man, sort of the same way that George Zimmerman was a light skinned Hispanic?

No.  It’s not like that at all.  Gosnell is a practitioner of a protected form of expression in the left-Wing Gallery of art.  The only reason anyone on the left even play-acted at criticism was the image of empty press seats at the trial.   If they had their way no one would even know about Gosnell or his proficient and prolific methods of execution or the women whose lived he damaged or ended.

It is by far the most striking evidence in recent memory that the left does not give a damn about women or children.  These are not the lives of human beings but descriptions of various political props in a stage play titled “the pursuit of power.”   Policy and agenda are more important than people and to the professional left they always will be.

And Gosnell?  Why, he represents all the things the left loves.  A successful professional of color doing the work of the gods of secular humanism.  It is only natural that anyone who would oppose such “good deeds” could have no other motive than racism.

But Gosnell himself was a racist who mistreated women and abused his position as a medical professional, all things that should have made the left apoplectic.  But it didn’t.  And they prefer not to talk about it.  It would be better if this was just some story told in a back alley than a story about a licensed back ally abortionist–the very thing the left insists we need licensed abortion to prevent.
