Last week Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz got Democrat colleague Dianne Feinstein’s “dander up,” as she later described her temper tantrum, when during a Judiciary Committee meeting he questioned the constitutionality of an assault weapons ban she had introduced. Feinstein snapped:
I’m not a sixth grader. Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered. Look, there are other weapons. I’m not a lawyer, but after 20 years I’ve been up close and personal to the Constitution. I have great respect for it.
Feinstein claimed one reason to outlaw assault weapons is they more than kill children, they dismember them in the process, which apparently is worse in her mind, since, as she said, “there are other weapons.” Meaning what? Cleaner kills are acceptable?
Whatever, this is the same Dianne Feinstein who as U.S. senator voted against partial birth abortion bans in 1995, 1997, 2000, and 2003.
As we all know, to commit pbas the abortionist delivers a baby up to the head in a breech position, punctures the nape of her neck with either fingers or scalpel, inserts tubing through the hole into her brain, suctions her brain, collapse her skull with forceps, and deliver the dead baby. Gruesome. Yet Feinstein said she was “truly shocked [about this] major strike against a woman’s right to choose” when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the ban in 2007.
As a supporter of the unfettered “right” to abort, Feinstein also supports late-term dilatation and evacuation abortions, wherein the abortionist dismembers the baby to kill him.
Senator Feinstein is indeed “not a sixth grader.” She is not as smart. Any sixth grader who was to hear a PBA or D&E abortion described would be horrified. Some adults, like Feinstein, lose childhood sensibilities when they grow up.
