“SOUTH DAKOTA MOVES TO LEGALIZE MURDER OF ABORTION PROVIDERS”.
The headline – re-tweeted by legions of “progressive” alt-media droogs – wasn’t remotely ambiguous; supposedly, a bill in the South Dakota legislature would legalize the murder of abortion providers.
Now – what’s the rule?
If the leftymedia says something about conservatives, distrust. Then verify. Then, almost invariably distrust some more, because it’s a lie (with the propability approaching 100% in direct proportion to the sensationalism of the claim. Indeed, I’m going to call this the Mother Jones Corollary to Berg’s Tenth Law, since MaJo is one of the most consistent offenders.
So – read the article – which screams its throat raw that South Dakota is going to all but sell license to kill Infanticidiatricians.
Then note the updates, which gingerly note that the bill actually makes a legitimate immediate threat of death or bodily harm to a fetus via an illegal act a justification to homicide, per South Dakota law, same as with any other person. With the emphasis being on illegal acts, which abortion, more’s the pity, is not.
So all together now; if the “progressive media” says it, it’s probably a lie. And if you check into it, it’ll turn out to be pretty much always definitely a lie.
Hope we’ve cleared that up.
