Democrat attack ad asks why Allen West should get to determine who lives and who dies

Of all the things going on in this election cycle this new attack ad aimed at Allen West chooses to attack him over his refusal to support embryonic stem cell research. Seriously. They aren’t even labeling it abortion which is central to this issue.

What they aren’t telling you in this ad is that for someone to live based on embryonic stem cell research means someone else has to die. That embryo is alive and should be protected. It shouldn’t be used for anything else except to grow a person. And those who want this controversial research are actually determining who lives and dies, and the most innocent of the two never lives.

It’s a disgusting attack ad and I’d almost guarantee you big money that the little girl in the ad hasn’t a clue what this issue is all about.

    Wow! Just Wow.

    This is what happens when you make science a political issue. You end up with fraudulent, fake, politically oriented causes that have nothing to do with science, and everything about it ends up being a lie. Nothing, $3 billion, no cures, no therapies, no progress. Adult stem cells are a different matter entirely.
    Rush Limbaugh

    • librtifirst

      It amazes me how so many people still don’t know about the cures that have been found over the last 100 years, and have been literally stomped out by government and the medical establishment. (not to mention the fact that the causes of these diseases have been found, and government pushes the causes on the public along with the drug companies)

      • If there have been cures that have been stomped out by the government, then it would make perfect sense why people don’t know about them: Because the government stomped them out!

    • Watcherinla

      Your comment is right on Las1. But, I believe the whole issue has nothing to do with stem cells and they know it. The goal is destroy Col. West. Why? Because they fear him. This man and his incredible leadership abilities can and should be running for president sometime in the future. They are trying to take him out now before he poses too much of a threat.

      • las1

        You are totally correct. It’s all about trying to destroy West using one of the sacraments of the church of the liberal/left… fetal stem cell research.

        Other sacraments include abortion, statism, identity politics. Fetal stem cell research falls under the abortion rubric. Jonah Goldberg’s book “Liberal Fascism” highlights the three legged stool of liberalism: abortion, statism and identity politics under which all of their political issues are grouped.

        My point in using Rush’s quote was to highlight the political aspect of cynically using science as the doorstop to liberal politics. In this case to demonize West.

        • Even though abortion also isn’t wrong (particularly if the fetus hasn’t been “partially born”), it is much different than stem cell research. Abortion constitutes getting rid of (conservatives would say “killing”) a fetus that has been conceived inside a woman by what is usually two consenting adults. Whereas stem cell research constitutes medical research that can save lives which is done using embryos created in a lab. So, abortion is primarily an issue of convenience, whereas stem cell research is a science and medical issue that can save lives, and that doesn’t involved the use of fetuses.

      • Liberals DO support stem cells. Since liberals don’t follow the Pope’s teachings that embryos created in a laboratory constitute “humans,” they obviously have no reason to oppose stem cells and all the reason in the world to support them.

    • Liberals aren’t trying to ban stem cells. Conservatives have made stem cells a political issue. As Rush Limbaugh said, “This is what happens when you make science a political issue.”

    “Democrat attack ad asks why Allen West should get to determine who lives and who dies”

    Yes, doesn’t he know that’s OBAMA’S job! He’s the one with the much touted KILL LIST.

    • Jazzee

      OH I wish I had said that excellent!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Wow, what an insult to anybody who has intelligence. Hopefully the ones who don’t have any aren’t voting anyway.

    • tvlgds

      They are. That’s how Ocrap got in there to begin with!

  • stage9

    OK, let’s cut through the propaganda right now.

    There are TWO kinds of stem cells.

    1) Adult stem cells, and
    2) Embryonic stem cells.

    Adult stem cells are derived from umbilical cords, placentas, bone marrow and numerous other tissues and organ systems. These viable stem cells have been used successfully in treating more than 70 diseases and conditions including leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell anemia and Parkinson’s Disease.

    Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells are harvested using live embryos, a process that destroys the embryo. This research is tantamount to the creation of life for the purpose of destruction and runs counter to the American tradition of respect for the unique quality and value of each human life.

    It has been proven that ADULT STEM CELLS produce GREATER returns than embryonic stem cells!

    THIS is what is at issue here not the elimination of stem cell research!

    Radicals have gotten wrong YET AGAIN!

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      And that unique quality and value of human life is owing to mankind being created in the image of God. We have immortality and God forbids murder.

      Psalm 139:16 NAS “Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.”

      • Conservative_Hippie

        Psalms 139, this chapter alone says all you need to know about whether a fetus is a life or not. Great job Gal220!

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          And here’s God speaking to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5 (NAS)

          ‘”Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, And before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”‘

          We are fearfully and wonderfully made and my soul knows it well! No Christian should be a part of a political party that rejects Him like the Democrat platform does. A pastor said they should not have put God’s Name back into their anti-God platform, because they take His Name in vain when they do. That pastor calls the Democrat’s platform a Romans 1 platform.

          • Conservative_Hippie

            Gal220, The Republican party is becoming more and more Pro-choice, which I despise! For that reason, I am a Pro-Life voter first and foremost. What that means is if for some reason the Democrat is Pro-Life and the Republican is Pro-Choice, I will vote for the Democrat that doesn’t happen very often, but it does happen in moderate states such as PA. My local state rep, a Republican, was pro-choice and so was the Dem that ran against him. At that election I voted independent.

            • Galatiansch2vs20

              Pro-life is of vital importance! I compromised voting Romney today, given his record on abortion- but would not have felt I could have done so if he had picked a runningmate without a pro-life record. I was very relieved when he picked Ryan was a staunch pro-lifer- at least he would be a potential tie-breaker in the Senate for pro-life legislation and hopefully, he will have Romney’s ear about judge appointments, etc..

              • Conservative_Hippie

                Agreed. Apparently Romney is pro-life except in cases of rape, incest, health and life of the mother, which is pro-choice “lite” to me.

                Edit: addendum – I wanted to add, I understand life of the mother, but “health” of the mother could mean anything.

                • Galatiansch2vs20

                  If Romney understood that a baby is a baby is a baby, he would not be for the taking of the babies’ lives who were conceived in rape, incest, and would be for trying to save the lives of both the mother and the baby.

                • Conservative_Hippie

                  Yes, agreed!

    • hbnolikeee

  • Smith Smith

    • Conservative_Hippie

      you betcha!

  • Orangeone

    BTW, b!tch, it is Lt. Col. Allen West and he put his life on the line so you would have the opportunity to spew this trash. You have the 1st Amendment right to free speech because of Lt. Col. Allen West and are free to disagree with his politics but at least tell the truth.

    To the purported veteran: It is O’Bambi that wants your insurance tripled, you to have private insurance to pay for your service-related inuries and illnesses.

    To this little girl when she is an adult: You should be questioning O’Bambi who supports late term abortion, to O’Bambi that believes in sticking a needle into the back of a baby’s neck to kill them so they are not born alive, to O’Bambi who supports tossing failed abortion babies into the trash to die, to O’Bambi who supports gender-selected abortion. You might have been one of those little girls aborted because you are a girl.

    They should all be directling their comments at the Demorats who shoved through ObamaTaxes with the 15 member death panel. Each of them are likely to be denied care by that panel if they develop the illnesses they purport to.

    Sorry about my rant. These types of ads just boil my blood.

  • This from the party that demands the right to kill their own born/unborn.

    • DCGere

      Ironic, right? They don’t see it that way I’m sure.

      • I’m curious about how the more uninformed/undecideds or moderates see this. The left doesn’t care about anything other than their ideology….facts need not apply since they quickly rationalize any dissonance by attacking the opponent and forgetting that a legitimate challenge to their POV ever took place. There has to be a psychological term for that behavior.

        • DCGere

          I have a Christian friend who has Parkinson’s, who is apolitical, and she is in favor of all types of stem cell research. The way I see it, libs (or those not associated with politics) believe that if it doesn’t affect them directly (pro-lifers, etc.) then it’s ok to do. I’ve tried having conversations about this and there is no way to get around them/their feelings. They rationalize without facts all the time. Argh…

      • hbnolikeee

        Maybe if you told them you’d use the babies the want to abort for the stem cells they would not longer be in favor of killing babies.

    They reach new depths of depravity and filth daily and revel in it.

    Frankly speaking, I see them as the criminal element in American politics, who refuse to give up power, regardless of the outcome of elections.
    They feel safe in their slander and lies, since they will do anything, and say anything, to maintain their hold on power.
    This isn’t going to end well. They’ve thrown down the gauntlet for all to see.

    Help this great man fight this kind of BS!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Its disgusting and does not look like the america I fell in love with 25 years ago when I arrived here. But no worries I do believe West is going to crush Patrick Murphy. Dont forget there is a debate on friday and he is going to have to face The colonel and answer for all the lies. I just hope scoop carries the debate live here so all the people that dont live in Florida can watch it.

      • I hope you’re right. I hope he does better in this debate than the last. West talks a little fast and makes it easy for the audience’s eyes to glaze over. If he adds a little emotion and illustrates how the liberal talking points his opponent is spewing is currently being tried and failing miserably, he can win over new voters.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Absolutely, he has to connect or at least appear that he cares, I promise that if he comes in the same way as the last debate he will be fine, because as you saw he came out more likable than Osama.

  • Wow
    Frear mongering to the MAX

  • marketcomp

    Mmm, that’s all they have. Ok LTC West beats up old white women and doesn’t care about Black families and now becasue he is pro-life and doesn’t want babies to be killed then he won’t allow embryonic stem cell to cure diabetes or whatever. All the dems have is fear mongering and they are making a grave mistake because all he has to comeback with is to show Obama and Murry support funding for abortions given the fact that Obama authored legislations for infanticide, which is the killing a baby from a botched abortion and show how Patrick Murray would support that. I ask, do they really want to go there?!

  • Like I said in a comment elsewhere here on the RS…it’s “open season for lying”…Why? Because that’s the “TRUTH” door of protection for the people of this nation this presidency ripped from it’s door posts…before this presidency it used to swing seasonally and occasionally both ways…(not so much better)…so now it’s infecting the nation…”aware soul” by “unknowing soul”…This presidency has embraced the gates of hell…BO already said in his speach at the U.N. about other generations that the “Future must not belong to”…but few get it…now to define it even more from this president…not only “Life at conception” (embryo in their denial…what a false hood) but Life in general of the breathing souls who know iz lam is a lie and it’s prophet dead…they can believe and practice what they want…that’s their liberty that should come with a responsible leash attached…but this is a Lying spirit and it respects nothing…it has made an all out war on the TRUTH and this president is part of it…

    “Stem cell research saves lives”-Brought to you by the scientists who discovered “global cooling”, I mean “global warming”, I mean “global climate change”.

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    When I lived in California, there was someone at a church in the field of science who explained how the advances were being made in adult stem cell research, not embryonic. This is a great opportunity for West to come out with a counter ad on the side of life when it comes to stem cell research. I was so upset with Governor Arnold S. when he supported a bond measure for embryonic stem cell research and when it passed in California!

    • freenca

      Interestingly, our local leftist rag had an article this very week about the research, stating that adult stem cell generating techniques now make the embryonic stem cells completely
      UN-NECCESSARY for any kind of research, as of now.

    Secondly, the opposition must be desperate to use embryonic stem cell research when jobs, the economy and Libya are at the forefront of the news.

    Third, it has been proven adult stem cells is where the success lies and I know this firsthand as someone in my family had this done and praise the Lord it worked!

    This is such crap because it has been shown that embryonic stem cells are not where the discoveries are being made. Adult stems cells are where the advances are moving forward. This a sickening and false ad based solely (as all left wing manipulation is) on FEELINGS.

  • There is NO evidence that embryonic stem cells can treat any of these conditions. That is why the private investments in stem cell research go to investigate using adult stem cells.

  • colliemum

    That ad is really, truly sick.

    There’s more research done on adult stem cells, which can be taken from – you guessed it! – adults. No need to kill babies.
    Also – there’s absolutely no evidence whatsoever that embryonic stem cells might possibly help against Alzheimers. But as this is a disease feared by so many of us, they’d go with it.
    That is disgusting.

    And embryonic stem cells doesn’t decide who lives or dies? Try telling that to the baby whose life was sacrificed… especially, when there is the alternative of adult stem cell. The Left has a very sick obsession with abortion.

  • Every day the left sinks lower and lower in disgust. This paragraph is from an article over on American Thinker this morning which sums things up.

    Obama has alienated about half the members of the Democratic Party. That once proud and responsible political party has degenerated under Obama into America’s de-facto socialist party. The Democratic Party’s policies are so radically anti-American, anti-white, anti-family, and anti-God, that those hard-working, responsible Democrats left in the party can only despair at what he has done to them. If you are a Democrat, you are a socialist. That is disgraceful.

  • Adult stem cell research is just as effective as embryonic SC research. We’ve fought these battle already. This Murphy guy is just clueless. Please don’t disappoint us, Palm Beach. Reelect Allen.

  • Next up will be an ad featuring baby polar bears wondering why Allen West wants to burn up all the ice in Antarctica (he’s on a roll, you see).

  • The stem cells don’t come from people. They come from embryos that are created in a laboratory. Since stem cells are not humans and are not killing anyone, no one is hurt by stem cell research.

    • Please tell me you forgot the /s tag.

      Do you not understand what an embryo is, Genius? Or what happens to that embryo when the stem cells are removed?

      Do you not also understand that embryonic stem cell research has been an abysmal failure while adult stem cell research has been reaping great benefits?

  • iHeartLife

    What is with this culture of death?! Placenta Stem Cell Research has found more viable stem cells in the discarded placenta of a newborn which can be safely extracted for transplantation to heal help fight various blood disease. And I have a feeling Lt. Col. Allen West knows this. The only reason the willfully ignorant continue to pursue Embryonic Stem Cell research is because they would then have to acknowledge the embryo is a living person in it’s earliest growth stage, and their murderous actions be exposed for just that. Which would then lead to abortion being exposed as murder too. And they can’t have that on their conscience!

  • sparkyva

    It never ceases to amaze me how Democrats take their own faults and try to pass them on to their opponents. The Affordable Healthcare Act determines who gets to live and die, not the republicans. Yet the democrats turn truth on it’s head and brand their opponents with their own failings. Stem Cell research HAS proven useful. We now know a lot more about cancer because stem cell experiments generally cause cancer. It is not currently anywhere close to a useful technology. It is just another hole to dump research money into. Don’t the Libs realize that taking money for Stem Cell research decreases the pot of money available for Global Warming research, which decreases the money available for electric car battery research, which decreases money available to Acorn, etc, etc, etc. Time to cut off all the leeches living of tax payer money!

  • Chris Piazza

    Why should Allen West decide who dies? Because we said so, now quiet down.
