Dr. Sanjay Gupta is the chief medical correspondent for CNN and was recently courted by the Obama administration to be the next Surgeon General of the United States. He would eventually withdraw his name from consideration saying that family matters would prevent him from serving.
A few days later, Barak Obama lifted the federal ban on using taxpayer money to pay for embryonic stem cell research. He even left the door open for it to be legal to create embryos for the intended purpose of killing them and using them in medical experiments.
Then, Sanjay Gupta interviewed America’s moral guru, Bill Clinton, to get his reaction to this new policy. To no one’s surprise, the former Degenerate in Chief was completely on board with the decision saying that it was justified since, in his words, “these embryos cannot be fertilized and become little babies.” He went so far as to say that using unfertilized embryos in this way was a “pro-life” decision.
Of course, this is pure nonsense and Clinton knew it. This guy is fully aware that, by the embryo stage, fertilization has already occurred. But ol’ Slick Willy was in sales pitch mode and he knew that this “unfertilized embryo” jibberish might slip past those who failed to connect what he was saying to what they learned in junior high school biology.
What’s more important, however, is that Sanjay Gupta also knew that Clinton was lying but chose to say nothing. And with his silence, he demonstrated exactly why the Obama administration wanted him for Surgeon General.
These people understand that, in order to push their version of the Brave New World, they will need a Surgeon General who knows how to keep his mouth shut when biological facts conflict with political agendas. In addition, the fact that Gupta would have been coming into this job right out of the media also showed that he was already on board with the “hear-no-evil, see-no-evil, speak-no-evil” party line that Barak Obama must have to be successful.
I also want to point out something else that happened about this same time. While Obama was justifying his embryonic stem cell decision on the basis that science should not be hampered by moral considerations, he was also ruling that cloning for reproductive reasons would not be legal because it was simply immoral.
I guess we can safely conclude from this that Barack Obama graduated from the Bill Clinton School of Doubletalk and Flexible Morals.
