MacDonald: Democrat-run Vermont has been violated by Democrats

The following commentary by Steve MacDonald has been republished with permission from GraniteGrok.

Democrat-run Vermont has been violated – by Democrats! Someone (or several of them) broke some windows and spray-painted a threatening message at the State House. “If abortions aren’t safe, you’re not either.” Does this classify as a Democrat-on-Democrat hate crime? Did the perps even know radical leftists control State Government?

Or that Vermont has very loose rules for abortion. By which I mean no rules?

  • Vermont does not have any of the major types of abortion restrictions—such as waiting periods, mandated parental involvement or limitations on publicly funded abortions—often found in other states.
  • Vermont does not have a law requiring that alternatives to abortion be discussed with a patient before an abortion is performed.
  • Vermont is one of only a very few states that allow abortions to be performed by non-physicians (physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurse midwives).
  • It is legal for an abortion to be performed in Vermont at any stage of pregnancy for any reason or for no reason.
  • There is no requirement that parents be informed.

Anyone can perform one (same as NH). The “patient” needs to be pregnant. You need to report that it happened. So, the law only asks that if you kill an unborn baby, you must notify the department of health within seven days for bookkeeping purposes.

Maybe that seems a bit authoritarian for the average conception to whenever we decide you need to die pro-abortion Democrat, but in the grand scheme, it’s a nothingburger.

So, why are lefties vandalizing the state house? It is because of years of Democrat rule, Democrat control of media, and Democrat control of education and culture.

They think the Federal government giving Vermont unlimited authority over the issue is somehow a threat. And hey, you’re not safe if you think you might be doing something with that.

Like what?

Are you afraid that a legislature full of Democrats might remove the reporting requirement or that they’ll keep it? Or is this another one of those object lessons the left never learns? Once you’ve created these little monsters, they can quickly turn on you for not being radical enough. Tools that, once no longer needed, can be disposed of along with your political opponents – a lesson from history you never allowed them to learn.

And here they are, threatening you already.

  1. I posted this on the BTV drug needle story. But is exactly the SAME as the Liberal defaced State House situation….angty progressives “at bat”. This is a fabulous (and TRUE) analogy how Liberals REALLY operate 🙂

    Here’s a good analogy of the progressive cesspool BTV has become. Do ya’ remember when Trump was campaigning for president? He stopped in BTV and spoke at Flynn Theater? It was a sellout crowd. Republican attendee’s were calm, polite, orderly, respectful as they waitied patiently in a long line to get in. Once in, the gathering was peaceful and quiet,,,and when over, all calmly left. On the OTHER side of the street?….the Park across from Flynn? There was mass protest, near violence, anger, hatred, screaming, yeling…nasty people. They represented all that describes BTV & Liberals….BLM types, Antifa types, LGBTGXBW-whatever, types, Enviro angry type…you name it.. They \were so out of control in vicious chants that extra police had to be called in, and many then had large overtime to quell the near violence by Libs. As the night came to end, they left. In the morning was a large amount of trash and destruction of the BTV park 9but NOT the Flynn Theater!)…all by these liberal progressives. THEN! BTV later demanded that TRUMP’s campaign PAY FOR THE DAMAGES and large $ police overtime…which was ALL CAUSED by – liberal progressive activists who were very nasty . Somehow all the mayhem of the protesters against Trump…mean Trump is thus .,iable to pay for them? This made BIG nationwide media headlines, that the evil Trump campaign stiffed poor Bernie-Land BTV. It’s soooo….Saul Alinsky :)….so lemme’ guess…..discarded needles all over BTV are…..Trumps fault :)….same analogy!

    • If it looks like duck, walks like a duck, swims like a duck, flies like a duck, sounds like a duck…. etc., etc..

    • cgregory how about you actually think before you post.

      The situation that the writer is referring to is graffiti on the statehouse that says “If Abortion is not safe you’re not either”.
      That is a Pro-Abortion statement- which is not the position of the Right.
      It’s also a threat- and the Right believes in Law and Order.

      All you are trying to do is deflect and take the focus off of what the point is- and that is also another Leftist tactic- how Alinsky of you.

      • It could be cgregory was one of the defacers, or knows some of the defacers, aka, damagers of government property.

        Why is the police not arresting such riotous people?
