The all out Republican War on Women has produced some pretty inadvertently hilarious comments. From the Santorum supporter telling women to “put aspirin between their knees,” to whatever crap Rush Limbaugh says on a daily basis, having a vagina is pretty much like having a swastika between your legs these days. But apparently women’s slutty desire to have the mirth without the birth is equal to killing thousands of innocent Americans and a foreign enemy dropping bombs on US bases, or at least that’s what one Republican Congressman thinks.
In what can only be described as the weirdest and most irrelevant of analogies, Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) compared the mandate of insurers provided contraception without a co-payment to the horrific September 11th and Pearl Harbor attacks. Declaring it a travesty that women wouldn’t be paying hundreds of dollars a year in copays as a great tragedy similar to those two events that killed thousands of Americans, Rep. Kelly said the following:
“I know in your mind you can think of the times America was attacked. One is December 7 — that is Pearl Harbor Day. Another was September 11 — that was the day of the terrorist attack. I want you to remember August 1, 2012 — the attack on our religious freedom. That is a date that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.” (Think Progress)
The price of success is that there’s people in the world that you’ve never even met who hate you and everything about you hahaha. Luckily there’s 1000 positive comments for every 1 negative comment.
Who knew that vaginas hate us and want to destroy our way of life? If anything, Kelly is making Chick-Fil-A look like very reasonable.
Kelly’s comments come on the day of the promulgation of the birth control mandate as part of Obamacare. Kelly is among many of the very confused and clueless dolts screaming about the birth control mandate violating “religious freedom”, even though a lot of Catholic institutions already cover birth control and, even more overwhelming refutation of Kelly’s whining, exempts churches from paying for the contraception. This is what happens when voters with more than two brain cells stay home during the 2010 mid-term elections; that is, we get bats#it crazy Tea Party Congressman like Kelly.
