Oh, sweet, sweet Hobby Lobby, holder of my heart AND my wallet…………….drop the hypocritical outrage.
It’s a little something like this:
Yeah, I’m to the right of Attila politically and fully endorse and support capitalism and the right of man to his ambitions, but I do have a functional brain that is far too wired and in overdrive even while sleeping. So, when I peruse the gilt aisles of cupcake wrappers and floral ribbon, heed the call of the ink on Stationery Row, submit to the siren’s call of the windchimes, I notice but one thing now that Hobbity Lobbity has decided to bellow their outrage at The Man:
THIS SHIT’S MADE IN CHINA!
Yeah, THAT China, the commie pinko land of the forced abortions (13 million abortions in China last year, peeps), where 500 women commit suicide daily, the enrollment of girls in school is ranked 107th worldwide, wages of women are 25% lower than those of men, where religion and speech are governmentally controlled, Han are treated as less-than-equal (to state it mildly), and the list goes on.
But let’s focus on the abortions in China, since that directly correlates to Hobbity Lobbity’s perceived violation of their Christian principles.
An estimated 13,000,000 annually, more than half of which are forced as a result of prenatal sex selection due to the importance placed on male babies. Mandatory periodic pregnancy tests. Mandatory vaginal palpation of rural women’s vaginas to make sure they hadn’t recently given birth. Government-forced sterilization for violation of the One-Child Policy. Mandatory IUD insertion after the first child, with mandatory sterilization if a second is born. Teachers lose retirement benefits for birth quota violatons. Again, the list goes on.
Oddly, that doesn’t prevent Hobby Lobby from obtaining their merchandise from such a country. Awkward…..
So, if you, Hobby Lobby, want to piss and moan that the government is acting out of bounds constitutionally in requiring that you provide certain insurance or be fined, fine. I can and do agree with that. Please, don’t act like your “principles” and “religion” are being violated, however.
To that I say, Cut the shit, hypocrites. It’s about your wallet, not principle.
