At the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, stand-up comic Michelle Wolf was brought in to host and entertain the tuxedo-clad, formal-gown-wearing media elites.
At one moment in her monologue she referenced Vice President Mike Pence. In utter crassness and unmitigated vulgarity, Wolf said of Pence, “He thinks abortion is murder, which, first of all, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. And when you do try it, really knock it, you know. You gotta get that baby out of there.” (If you are unpersuaded that she said this, go here.)
The fact that this is delivered as a laugh line tells us how far the cultural elites have gone to create a hell on earth.
The dinner is reminiscent of the Nazi elites tittering at a social gathering about what they were doing to the Jews and others “unworthy of life.” They made lampshades from the skin of Jewish people. We sell baby body parts for cash.
Bishop Robert Barron of Los Angeles speaks so clearly of the depths of moral depravity to which our nation’s elites have stooped. In his article “ Michelle Wolf and the Throwaway Culture ” Barron writes:
One of the extraordinary but often overlooked qualities of a system of objective morality is that it is a check on the powerful and a protection of the most vulnerable. If good and evil are objective states of affairs, then they hem in and control the tendency of cultural elites to dominate others. When objective moral values evanesce, armies of the expendable emerge, and what Pope Francis aptly calls a cultura del descarte (a throwaway culture) obtains. One of the indicators that this has happened is lots of people in tuxedos and formal gowns, sipping from wine glasses, and laughing while someone jokes about the murder of children.
