Right to Life (but no one said a decent life)

3 Cheers for SuperSnoop Jevarra Jones for digging this from the steeped video entrails of the Internets. The author of the min-doc went to the College Republican National Convention, where he got some great footage of war mongering young reps making silly excuses as to why they couldn’t join the military. The most amazing thing about the piece, however, is this anti-abortion statement by the highly-indictable Tom DeLay:

If we had those 40…million…children [fetuses] that were killed over the last 30 years we wouldn’t need the illegal immigrants to fill the jobs that they are doing. Think about it.

In defense of the callous college conventionites, there was a copious and discomfiting silence from the crowd, even after DeLay added, ‘think about it’.

Think about it, indeed. It seems like DeLay’s real opinion about the social station of women who contemplate abortions (and, of course, the social worth of their born children) is on display here. Post fetuses, once saved from the evils of abortion, would go on to become the slave race of the assembled affluent republicans, neatly replacing the Mexican presence and all those taco trucks. What better message to college republicans; don’t worry, those post fetal children will never go to college.
