You just can’t make this stuff up ** UPDATE **

Yesterday I posted an article on the pro-abortion demonstrators in Texas who were shouting “Hail Satan” to drown out pro-lifers singing Amazing Grace.  Who’d a thunk they could even be dumber.

Well we’re not to be disappointed.

Two things happened since that post.

First, a liberal “journalist”, Elspeth Reeve, posted an article in the liberal Atlantic Wire on the video and the demonstration.  Needless to say her panties (assuming she wears them) were in a wad.  She jumped on a tweet from Josh Rosen, the CNN reporter who verified the story, that there were about five people shouting “Hail Satan” not the whole pro-abortion crowd.  Then she goes on to blow off the whole incident.

But that’s not the fun part, that’s just the expected part.  Here’s the fun part.

And yet that wasn’t the worst of it. Twitchy, The Daily Caller, The Blaze, and others picked up a photo showing a little girl holding a sign that says, “If I wanted the government in my womb, I would f*** a senator!” How horrible! “Pro-aborts exploit kids to advocate for killing ‘unwanted’ ones,” Twitchy’s headline blared. The image appears to have gone viral after it was tweeted by Ethan Gehrke.

If I wanted Government in my womb

However, it’s a fake. Or at least, it’s not from the Texas demonstrations. The photo was posted on a message board in December 2007. The anti-abortion crowd will have to stick with its five Satanists.

So Elspeth has caught some nasty pro-lifers lying about a photo.  Good job of investigative journalism Elle!

Except there’s an update.  Apparently the Atlantic Wire doesn’t have editors.  And apparently Elle isn’t the investigative reporter she thinks she is.

Update: I read the date wrong. The photo is real! My apologies. The pro-choice activists appear to have let a kid hold that sign after all, which, gross.

Oops.

Oh, and the idea that letting a kid hold that sign is “gross”?  At this point think of a thousand words on the other sign – Every child a wanted child.  That’s the slogan pro-abortionists use to justify Doctor Gosnell.

OK, now for the second little happening.

The Church of Satan has weighed in on the topic.
