RNC Chair Priebus “Asking Questions:” Does Obama Support Infanticide?

RNC chairman recycles hateful right wing meme
Politics • Views: 26,127

Today in an article for right wing blog redstate.com, RNC chairman Reince Priebus demonstrated how serious the Republican Party is about this “rebranding” thing, by asking if President Obama and the Democratic Party support infanticide. Yes, he really did.

In an article published Wednesday on the conservative website RedState, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus blasted Democrats for supporting Planned Parenthood, while floating the damning suggestion that the likes of President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) support infanticide.

“The President, the Senate Majority Leader, the House Democratic Leader, and the Chair of the Democratic National Committee (in whose home state this hearing occurred) made funding Planned Parenthood an issue in the 2012 campaign,” Priebus wrote. “They should now all be held to account for that outspoken support. If the media won’t, then voters must ask the pressing questions: Do these Democrats also believe a newborn has no rights? Do they also endorse infanticide?”

This is damage control, folks — a sop thrown to the religious right, who are getting very angry with the Republican Party and their talk of “rebranding.” The absurdly hateful lie that President Obama supports infanticide has been bouncing around the right wing echo chamber for years, impervious to refutation, and Priebus is very calculatedly playing to that lovely group of people who are willing and eager to believe it.
