Overlook if you can every instance of the words “misleading,” “deceptive” and “heavily edited” that Planned Parenthood has associated with the undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress alleging organ harvesting by the organization.
Ignore thatDr. Deborah Nucatola, featured in the very first video, reportedly deleted her social media accounts after the video was released despite her free speech rights to say whatever she pleases.
Forget about the video that Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richardsmade apologizing for Nucatola’s “tone and statements,” which she described as “unacceptable” and uncharacteristic of Planned Parenthood’s compassion.
But most of all and this could be difficult for many set aside whatever feelings you have about abortion. Is it a violent act against a living thing? Who knows?
With all that in mind, try to imagine just what columnist Jessica Valenti thinks she can pull off this week.
If you’re looking for a brilliant legal takedown of Valenti’s discovery of the need for quotation marks around “free” in free speech, Ken White offers an exhaustive explanation at popehat.com. “Valenti’s eager advocacy for censorship is not tethered to illegally recorded videos or misleading videos or even videos with explicit lies,” writes White:“it’s an explicit call to censor political speech that makes people mad, whether or not it’s intended or likely to cause imminent violence.”
