Democrat Demographics:

Panderers, Potty Mouths and Perverts

by R. Cort Kirkwood POSTED:



( If this presidential campaign and election proved anything, it’s that President Barack Obama locked up the Fluke vote.

According to
an NBC exit poll, Obama drew 67 percent of single women. That isn’t to say all single women are Flukes, of course; but most Flukes are single women. Obama worked hard to get that vote, with his full-throated support for Planned Parenthood, abortion on demand and free contraception for all. He also got the vote from single men, at 56 percent, and, of course, the sodomite vote, at 76 percent. In other words, he received a hefty vote from those with a vested political and cultural interest in sexual license.

Yet the attention Obama and the Democrats gave single women proves the obverse of what leftists allege: that Christian or conservative Republicans are obsessed with sex and sexual matters. Indeed, the left has used this meme — those opposed to sexual license are “uptight” or have a “hang-up,” as they said in the Woodstock Era — to advance the sexual revolution and desensitize Christians to perversion. Thus, the left is obsessed with sex. As the Weekly Standard reported
, the Obama Campaign website featured an “e card” (subsequently scrubbed) that said, “Vote like your lady parts depend on it.” Below that, it read, “Because they kinda do.”

Well, no, they didn’t, but that didn’t stop the Obama left from peddling the demagoguery. Sexual license — with “free” birth control to prevent post-coital complications and abortion-on-demand to clean them up — seems to be the one obsession of Obama and his underlings, including such “Catholics” as Vice President Joe Biden, and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Remnant readers will remember them as the pair of theologians who presumed
to instruct the nation on St. Thomas Aquinas and the history of Catholic teaching on abortion.

The Most Recent Insanity

A number of recent items in the news, beyond the lowbrow e-card, make the point. Tops among them was the ad for Obama featuring Lena Dunham
, a third-rate actress and director you’ve never heard of and probably don’t care to. She appeared in an advertisement that suggests a likeness between a young woman’s losing her virginity and voting for the first time in 2012 for Obama.

The double entendre is vulgar

Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy. It should be with a guy with beautiful … somebody who really cares about and understands women.


A guy who cares about whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control. The consequences are huge. You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don’t want a guy who says, “Oh hey, I’m at the library studying,” when he’s really out not signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act.


Or who thinks that gay people should never have beautiful, complicated weddings of the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time. It’s a fun game to say, “Who are you voting for?” and they say “I don’t want to tell you,” and you say, “No, who are you voting for,” and they go, “Guess!”


Think about how you want to spend those four years. In college age time, that’s 150 years. Also, it’s super uncool to be out and about and someone says, “Did you vote,” and “No, I didn’t vote, I wasn’t ready.” My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl. Now I was a woman. I went to the polling station and pulled back the curtain. I voted for Barack Obama.

After that repulsive message, she delivered
this one via Twitter, that indispensable device by which everyone can let everyone else know everything they do and think every minute of the day. Here is young Dunham, she of the tattooed arm: “I know I've been criticized for sexualizing our POTUS but you could bounce a quarter off that [Obama’s] butt.” One wonders what her parents think. Or maybe we don’t want to know.

Last week, a professional homosexual named Michelangelo Signorile, who runs a talk show on SiriusXM radio, told a homosexual caller who backed Mitt Romney to commit suicide. Most normal Americans with jobs and children and mortgages don’t know and don’t need to know who Signorile is, except that he and his ilk are among the pink elites who control the Obama administration’s message on the only thing that matters to them: the nether regions of the anatomy. Here’s what Signorile said

Now, you went and voted for him and it would have been much easier to go to the store and buy some arsenic and make a potion and take it. You know what I mean? … Go to the drug store, there are plenty of things you can get, it’ll put you to sleep really, really easily.

One would think the suicide rate
among Signorile’s sodomitic confreres might temper such remarks. So much for “tolerance” from the lavender left.

A third item less concerned outright sex than mystifying obsceneity coaxed from
the mouths of the elderly in attacks on Mitt Romney. The ad came from Michael Moore, the mendacious film director who ambushed Charlton Heston when the latter was dying of Alzheimer’s Disease. The old folks discharged unprintable scatology related to the genitals.

What does such an ad demonstrate beyond the ugly truth that even the elderly have been convinced to disport themselves in the filth of the leftist barnyard?

Obsessed With Sex

So evangelical kooks and old popes aren’t “obsessed” with sex, the left is. Consider a little more proof in two headlines at, which presents itself as an edgy, left-wing website, but which regularly retails harangues about sex.

When GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock misspoke
about pregnancy rape, having made a perfectly legitimate point, the left flew into a rage and Salon published this headline:

GOP’s insane rape remarks aren’t outliers

Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin are representative of their party’s increasingly deranged platform

Republicans, the headline averred, are “deranged” because they believe differently than leftists on abortion. The man in the White House apparently agrees, given his support
for the largest abortion factory in the country and his repeated votes against bills forbidding the murder of infants who slip by the abortionist’s scissors and vacuum. He calls his support for abortion and contraception a boon to “women’s health,” a lie on par with that published in The New York Times. It claimed that opposition to abortion expressed in the GOP platform “would erase any right women have to make decisions about their health and their bodies.” This belief, apparently, is how Obama locked up 67 percent of the vote from single women. They believed the idiotic lie that the Mormon Romney would seize their rubbers and birth control pills.

Anyway, then came this headline farther down the same page:

So, goblin porn exists

Welcome to the world of 3-D erotica, where all the characters from your local Halloween store get it on

And Salon calls Christians “deranged.”

Sandra Fluke

Yet one public face demonstrated the left’s obsession more than any other: Sandra Fluke, the Professional Woman and veteran “reproductive rights” activist
who rode to fame on the broad back of radio mouth Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh called
her a slut because Mizz Flluke complained to a panel of Democrats that she could not get free birth control at Georgetown University Law School. When she matriculated at the $40,000-per-year Catholic school, she knew its policy and immediately started her war against Catholic teaching and school policy. Fluke and the Democrats actually expected the public to believe the pill cost her $3,000 annually, although it is available at the neighborhood WalMart for about $9 a month. The whole presentation was a lie. Limbaugh quipped, with some justification, Fluke wished to be paid to have sex.

His using the dreaded “S” word (“slut-shaming
,” modern women call it) prompted president of the United States to call Madame Fluke and commiserate with her in the battle against the forces of intolerance, although The Messiah offered no such balm for Laura Ingraham, the target of MSNBC’s loudmouth and Obama partisan Ed Schultz. Fluke became the poster girl for the Obama Administration’s decision to force the Catholic Church to provide free birth control to its employees, and, having been plucked from obscurity, got a podium at the Democratic National Convention. Which brings us full circle to the tattooed woman director likening a vote for Obama to having sex with the “right guy” for the first time. Fluke can provide free contraceptives from Georgetown to protect the assignation.

Aside from abortion and contraception, again, we have Obama and the Democrats’ obsession with sodomy. They’re all in on homosexual “marriage” and forcing the rest of us to recognize a plethora of rights heretofore unknown in Christendom. And woe betide the person who dares oppose them, as Chick-fil-A found out
. Among the administration’s storm troopers on this front is crackpot Dan Savage, the anti-Christian homosexual polemicist. This estimable character signed up to work for Gary Bauer’s 2000 presidential campaign, and, sick with the flu, licked the door knobs in the office, hoping Bauer would get sick.

If Bauer had gotten sick, or even worse, died, what then? Again, so much for tolerance.

The left likens voting to sex. The left perverts Halloween. The left licks door knobs. And if you don’t go along, you’re “obsessed” and “deranged.”

The Left’s Secular Sacrament

Abortion is the highest sacrament of the leftist church. Tied for second are contraception and homosexual sodomy. The irony of the accusation that conservative Christians and Republicans are “obsessed” about sex is this: No one much discussed it until the “sexual revolution,” a cause of the political and cultural left that turned our culture into a sewer. Now, we cannot escape non-stop talk  about sex, and those who express even mild disapproval are called “obsessed.” Again, who turned Halloween into an occasion to contemplate the mysteries of “3-D Erotica?” The crackpot left, which, to paraphrase
the late Joe Sobran, just can’t stop thinking about the obsession of its opponents.

The left’s obsession, indeed, reminds one of Bill Murray’s joke in “What About Bob
?” A psychiatrist shows a patient a series of photos — a bat, a car or a bird — and asks his patient to say the word that comes to mind after each one. Repeatedly, the patient replies, “sex!”

“Why do you keep answering sex?” the doctor asks.

Patient: “You’re the one showing me dirty pictures.”

Except in the case at hand, the left really does show dirty pictures, and then says those who notice — young Dunham’s obnoxious and revolting advertisement and Twitter remark, for instance — are “obsessed.”

Obama has two beautiful daughters. He wants
to fund Planned Parenthood so they can “control their own health-care choices.” He wants them to have access to abortion so they don’t get “punished with a baby.” He opposed legislation to stop infanticide. Dunham and Fluke are merely the nadir of a political party that has elevated sexual license to the position of infallible dogma.

That’s obsessed. And it explains what is wrong not only with that party and its leader but also with the country that put him into office — twice.
