If you’re at all familiar with pop culture, you may have heard of comedian Amy Schumer. Or maybe you saw her complaining about being called “plus sized” shortly after she posed semi nude with a flabby gut. Perhaps as a way to write new material without hijacking jokes from comedians of yore, Amy’s recent sketch is a study of women’s health issues. I call it a “study” because it’s a perfect summation of the left’s hypocrisy of government involvement in our personal lives. My body, my choice, your bill. Cough up the dough or you’re a sexist.
Amy is obviously running with the false narrative that people in government want to be involved with “women’s issues.” This narrative is an extension of the famous “war on women” meme, started four years ago when George Stephanopoulos, out of left field, asked then presidential candidate Mitt Romney, if he was against birth control. Or something (watch the exchange here). Even though nobody was talking about birth control. Which is important, because guess which party is always talking about birth control and “women’s issues”? Democrats. Leftists. It’s always “my body, my choice,” for abortion, until it’s time for who pays for it, then it’s “women need government to pay for it.” Again, from the left. For the Democrat party, women only care about their vaginas and keeping their uteruses empty–with government funding (read Carly Fiorina Nails It! Attacks Left on Lying About ‘Women’s Issues’). But, sure, it’s the Republicans who want to control women’s health.
Say, do you think Amy teamed up with her favorite cousin Chuck to write this one (see Clueless Amy Schumer Joins Cousin Chuck to Push More Clueless Gun Control)? In fact, leftists like Amy and Chuck are the ones who voted (aka DEMANDED) to allocate taxpayer money (your money) toward women’s healthcare. When you ask Uncle Sam to pay for something, you kind of give him a free pass to be involved in the investment. The investment you asked him to make. Yes, even when it comes to the details of your pap smear. The “free” (taxpayer provided) one, that is.
Once more with feeling, folks. It’s Democrats who ensured government officials would have a say when it comes to your health. It’s called “ObamaCare” or the “Affordable Care Act.” Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. Guess which party rammed that law through? Hint: zero Republicans voted in favor of ObamaCare. Talk about an inconvenient truth.
Which means, dearest Amy, conservatives don’t want to be in the waiting room with you. We don’t want to be in an examination room with you. Let’s put a blanket over your crotch area and say we don’t want to be in any room with you. We don’t want to foot the bill either.
With the government, it’s simple: you don’t pay, you get no say. That should be especially true for leftists because it rhymes. The scene above is intended to make you think Republicans want to control women. That’s just plain silly, Amy. Which is how we know this sketch is alllllll yours. You only steal the good stuff. This? It’s a flaming pile of tampons. Get it? Because you’re not supposed to flush them? Eh. Yeah, not my best. At least I know you won’t steal it.
Twice more with thinking. The left wants to monitor every aspect of your personal life: your health, your money, your words, even your thoughts. But according to people like Schumer, conservatives are guilty of overreach because we don’t want you to murder your children…and get the invoice afterward.
Speaking of how crappy socialized medicine is…
