Disrespecting the dead and waving around a corpse to push a wackjob agenda is not just for fetuses in a jar anymore.
It’s now for playing corporate concubine for insurance, pharmaceutical and health industry CEO’s.
Yes, the anti-choice anti-abortion movement, who brought our society domestic terror on women’s clinics and Drs have sunk to a low in a new direction, using Senator Ted Kennedy’s barely cold dead body to push the agenda for the corporate pimp daddies.
Among the plethora of crazy, barely coherent signs present at the 9/12 DC Teabagger event, this sign caught our attention which reads:
“BURY OBAMACARE WITH KENNEDY”
This sort of sentiment was donned on a lot of scribbled hand-written signs, but something this crass appearing like it was mass produced by a 501c3 astroturf organization was a bit out of the ordinary.
There was very little to clue us in to the producers of this nasty sign except a barely visible logo for something called “ALL.”
But, alas with a little digging we found out that the organization that mass-produced this sign is the American Life League (source), one of the largest pro-life organizations in the United States. It is a spin-off of the National Right to Life Committee and was founded by Judie and Paul Brown (source) with help from Heritage Foundation founder Paul Weyrich. Among ALL’s projects are Rock 4 Life, ALL’s campaign to shut down Planned Parenthood as well as their campaign to expose pro-choice catholics and deny them communion.
Long story short: A very sick minded astroturf lobbying group whose claim to fame is that they are dedicated to “preserving the sanctity of life” exploits the death of one man to achieve short-term political goals that deny health coverage to millions of Americans for the sake of corporate buggery. Classy.
