Prepare for a Shock: NBC Reporter, Entire Left Distorts Mike Huckabee Quote on Women

Here's Huckabee's actual quote:


So he's saying he doesn't want the government sending a message that women are helpless and need Uncle Sugar buying their birth control pills.

And so now here's relentless progressive shill and part-time reporter Kasie Hunt "reporting" the quote:

After some pushback for this egregious shilling, she "clarifies." But her clarification is also wrong:

She's still making it sound like Huck believes "women cannot control their libidos." No, he's saying that's the message the Democratic Party propagates.

Notice how quickly and easily the allegedly unbiased "reporters" of the allegedly "mainstream" media propagate attack lines cooked up by the leftwing agitprop organizations.

Ever see a reporter just sling out something they grabbed from a Hugh Hewitt column?

That said, @drewmtips (who alerted me to this) points out that Huck still isn't helping. Whether the thought is coming from his own mouth, or whether he's ventriloquizing it into Democrats' mouths, he's still making the connection that birth control has something to do with "controlling your libido."

I know this is a popular sentiment among the "Best form of birth control is an aspirin, held between your knees" caucus, but there are a lot of married men and women who do not feel that they should control their libidos with one another (indeed, complaints frequently run in the opposite direction) and would like to sometimes have sex without procreation being among the joys flowing from it.

And people really need to get the hell over this, because I'm tired of hearing it, and I'm at least a political ally of those insisting on this sort of message. I cannot fathom how this relentless claim that Sex is for Babiez, Alwayz, line falls on the ears of people not predisposed to giving the right a break.

It's no different than feminists' eternal war over the cultural preferability of pubic hair. What one does in the privacy of their own home -- whether to have childbirth as the result of sex, or to employ birth control -- is their own prerogative. It's every person's right to not use birth control, if they find it sinful; and it's everyone's right to use it, if they don't find it sinful.

The elevation of strictly personal decisions -- and this is strictly personal; abortion doesn't enter into it, so this is entirely about a woman's decision with no reference to a third party's rights -- into a major political issue is childish and tribalist.

Yes we all have a preferred mode of living. News at 11. The law is not about preferred modes of living, and neither should we make "political issues" about it.
