Gems at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

Although we got a lot of pushback from pro-aborts at UNC Chapel Hill, we got a great deal of positive feedback.

Although we got a lot of pushback from pro-aborts at UNC Chapel Hill, we got a great deal of positive feedback.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it (John 1:5).  Perhaps it is in the darkest places that the light of truth is most evident.

Mission accomplished.  “You have achieved your goal—dialogue and getting people to think.  We should have more of this on campus.”

Pro-abort suspicious of the abortion system.  CBR staffer Jane Bullington spoke with a young woman who had done a paper on abortion, but was still pro-choice.  She admitted she learned some things from our display that she did not known before.  She said, “The university culture stigmatizes pregnant girls and basically says ‘since you are I school with no job, to be pregnant is irresponsible.  So they shame you to have an abortion.  The system still pushes abortion because employers get around non-discrimination laws and won’t hire pregnant girls, usually.  The system pushes abortion on women.”

Glad you are comparing…  “The protesters were saying this is an anti-abortion display.  I am glad you are comparing it to other genocides.  You know, I actually read your brochure; I like to think and ask questions!!”

No Hitler brains!  “I really don’t want Hitler brains!”  And by that, CJ meant that he didn’t want to think like Hitler.  After volunteer Patti explained to him the reasoning behind the GAP display, he put the message in his own words and it made sense to him.  He saw the connection between the dehumanizing language for both the Jewish people used in Nazi Germany and unwanted, preborn babies today.  Some students and professors take such immediate offense, they will not even read what Rabbi Yehuda Levin stated in our brochure about the common thread that ties together each form of genocide: “the systematic slaughter, as state-sanctioned ‘choice,’ of innocent, defenseless, victims…”  But CJ got it.
 
Pro-abort? Not so much anymore.  “The chat site, Yak-Yak, was full of conversations about being pro-choice at the beginning of the day and “not -so -sure, leaning pro-life”  at the end of the day, because of seeing your display.  I wanted you to know you are making a difference.”
 
Tired of intolerant liberal crap.  Hally, a student from a small town, told us, “I want to get involved with other pro-life kids on this campus.  I am so tired of the liberal crap on this campus.  They are not tolerant and certainly not diversified in thought here.”

She’ll find a way; believe it!  A female student kept her distance for a few minutes, then strolled up to the barricade to talk with volunteer Patti Shanley.  She felt some anxiety about her plans to attend med school, because she knew that there would be pressure to prescribe abortifacients or perform abortions.  Our graphic images weren’t news to her.  She was glad we were there to share the truth about abortion with the rest of the students.   “I don’t see how anyone could do that.  It’s so obviously a little person,” she said as she shook her head.  Patti asked her if she could stand up for the little ones when she’s in med school.  To that she answered, “I’ll find a way, believe it!”

Pro-aborts perpetuate rape culture at UNC

The protest group that would soon serenade us with audio porn.

The protest group that would soon serenade us with audio porn.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Pro-aborts routinely cheapen sex, devalue woman, disregard human life, and lower the human species to the level of animals enslaved to sexual urges.  These are all facets of the free-sex and abortion-on-demand worldview.

We hear bits and pieces of this worldview all the time, often in the form of unstated assumptions (e.g., sex is a right), but sometimes, all of the parts coalesce, creating a stark and grotesque display.

Until the end of Day 2 at UNC Chapel Hill, the protesters had been rather docile.  But now more of them gathered and threw something of a party as we were packing up to leave.  They brought out stereo speakers and blasted loud music.

The music was kind of fun at first, mostly about partying and having fun.  But as we continued, things took a decidedly darker and more pornographic turn.  As the speakers blasted “f*** you, b****” over and over, the protesters, most of them women, danced to the beat.

So much for affirming and respecting women.

But it got worse.  One of the songs, which could only be described as 100% pornographic, described sex acts to a pulsating beat.

With the audio-porn, girls with open shirts exposed their bras and revealed vulgar body-painted messages.  Free condoms and lubricant were practically thrown at passersby.  The protesters shouted things like “Get lit for lube!” and “Take a condom and call me if you’re cute!”

At a very basic level, all of this whips people up into a sexual frenzy, which affects both men and women.  Men (or, more precisely, males) want to cash in on the implied promises.  Women want to be the object of desire, like their fellow co-eds going shirtless at the protest.

Combine this with alcohol, which is not in short supply on campus, and you have created a sexual predator’s paradise.

Because if you argue that people can’t control their sexual urges, and if you seriously justify killing human beings to preserve the “right” to sex without responsibility, and if you whip people into a sexual frenzy, how much of a leap is it for an inebriated sexual predator to take advantage of a drunken coed?

Soft Racism

This ain’t your grandma’s racism.

This ain’t your grandma’s racism.

by Jacqueline Hawkins

Based on what I heard at Mizzou and elsewhere, I’m starting to realize there are two kinds of racism.

Hard racism is the obvious, in-your-face, “We hate black people.  Lynch them!  Enslave them!  ARGH!!!” kind of racism.  This racism is typical of cultural elites like Margret Sanger, KKK members, and neo-nazi skinheads.

But there is another kind of racism: soft racism.  Instead of being fueled by hatred, it seems to come from a pseudo-compassion for the plight of a lesser species.  It’s like the soft spot a pet owner might have for animals.

Mixed with the abortion/population control movement, soft racism has become more dangerous than the harder kind.  It lulls black people into a false sense of security, even as they annihilate their own race, one black baby at a time.  Meanwhile, soft-racist white people feel a sense of accomplishment, because it shows they “care” for the poor, downtrodden blacks.

Take a look at a few choice statements I’ve heard during our campus visits:

p My college roommate, in a gentle, sweet voice drenching with concern about the rate of illegitimate births in the black community, “They don’t know how to use birth control.”

In other words:  Blacks are apparently too stupid to figure out how to take a pill everyday.  (I’m not advocating usage of the pill nor premarital “safe” sex for any race, but the principle of taking a pill everyday is not that hard to wrap your mind around.)

p “I agree we shouldn’t kill children. But not everyone is equipped to take care of a baby.  Minorities need this option,” said a protester during Created Equal’s University of North Florida outreach.

In other words:  While killing children is bad, black people are so bad off that slaughtering their own children is the best option.

p Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said, “When you’re white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto. … You don’t know what it’s like to be poor.”

Implication:  A double whammy.  Black people only know a life of poverty, but white people eat caviar at the country club.

p As reported in a recent story about microaggressions at Mizzou, white students at the University of Missouri said, “We don’t like that you’re tokenizing minorities!”  And, “You shouldn’t use minorities to further your agenda!”

In other words:  Blacks are too stupid to know their own minds, so their views must be assigned to them by their white benefactors.

p And finally, at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, a young white man repeatedly berated me for being token who had betrayed her own race.

In other words:  Blacks who don’t accept their assigned thoughts, words, and/or deeds must be put back in their places.

When I think about these comments, I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone.  It’s patronizing.  It’s insulting.  These folks are not entirely without concern and empathy, but it’s not the compassion you might feel it for someone you see as an equal.  Some of these folks seem to see us as lesser beings.  They take pride in shouldering the white man’s burden.
