The inevitably Marxist zoo IX: The red countess

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg!
"Order in the court!"
Justice Ginsburg's recent interview in the New York Times might prove to be an eternally resonant eye-opener about the entire Progressive Movement.
The seminal remark by the Judge begins: "Frankly" - a great adverb and advert for coming attractions – "I had thought at the time Roe was decided, there were concerns about population growth." Whoa!
Wasn't Roe v. Wade about female rights under the Constitution?
"Population control", continues Justice Ginsburg, "and particularly growth in population that we don't want to have too many of."
That point of view about population control was obviously fine with her, "a woman of means" as she describes herself and her equals. She didn't become concerned until the Harris v. McRae decision upholding the Hyde Amendment that forbids the use of Medicaid for abortions, a welfare program that accelerates the elimination of poor people.
Odd…almost oxymoronic how the French Revolution's communist premonitions have now led America, of all nations, into creating its own Progressively Marxist Royalty such as the Countess Ginsburg.
"Population control" as "Quality Control", and, yes, eugenics, that "science" of quality control so fashionable under Adolf Hitler's Third Reich. Obviously the Fuhrer's only mistake was his poor taste in "quality", right? The determining factor should not have been racial but economic … "men and women of means" versus the poor, you know. To avoid any further class warfare, you simply abort the very class that you claim you have come to save.
It was no coincidence that Red Royalty's Emperor in the late 1930's, Joseph Stalin, found a convenient partner in Adolf Hitler. In the early years of World War II, the two of them became a virtual Bonnie and Clyde, condoning each other's voracious appetite for ruthless and bloody conquest.
Red Royalty, Nazi Royalty, Fascist Royalty … or Progressive Elitists such as Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Progressively Red Elitists or the Increasingly Marxist Royalty of America, it all amounts to the very nightmare that the immigrants of America were running away from.
Why did God make so many common-looking people?" Answering his own question, Abraham Lincoln said, "Because God prefers common-looking people."
God obviously has no part in the thinking of Progressively Red Elitists … and if they say He does, if they advertise their Christianity or Catholicism as the Clintons, Obamas, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi do … well, they all would advertise anything that would help them rise higher and higher into power over those humans that, as Justice Ginsburg points out, "we don't want to have too many of ..."
Despite the apparent pecking order at the White House, the American Progressive Movement is now shaped and directed increasingly by women. The ladies are certain about how much the Progressive male politicians are in debt to them. On the back of Roe v. Wade came the greatest explosion of the almost one hundred year-old, once very male Progressive Movement.
Some form of legalized murder had to be instituted before this avalanche of Federal Government controls over everyone and everything could be unleashed. If the citizens of a nation wish to have the murder of their own children legalized, and the government lets them, then obviously the Federal government of that nation can eventually be allowed to "euthanize" its own, less fortunate, not always willing citizens … and do so with no more guilt than that of aborting mothers.
It is even somehow Christian insofar as no one can possibly judge anyone else since they are all guilty: "Judge not lest ye be judged!"
Following 36 years of Roe v Wade, the Obama administration is bringing "change we can believe in"; and the "we" of that phrase is no more egalitarian than Kings and Queens of Ole England or the Reich and Politburo of Hitler and Stalin.
As I've said and will say again and again, the "we" of that Obama Declaration is only made up of the Progressively Red Royalty.
The rest of "us" will be eating "Health", "Cap and Trade" and "Stimuli" programs that comprise a meal much less nourishing than even the "cake" which Marie Antoinette suggested.
If you don't believe me, consider how Judge Ginsburg's "population control" preferences might effect you, particularly if you are not a man or woman "of means".
