Kermit Gosnell, Nihilism, Tolerance, and The Evil of The Blur

As it all became a blur, we lost track of the Evil and the Good.

She once had to kill a baby delivered in a toilet, cutting its neck with scissors, she said. Asked if she knew that was wrong, she said, “At first I didn’t.”


– Nurse Moton, Gosnell’s Abortion Clinic (HT:NRO)

Wow! Mrs. Peacock, in the toilet, with the scissors. I don’t think they have all the cards for that in your typical edition of Clue™. Should she not have done that? Let’s stop and evaluate…Is the average American still decent enough as a human being to even figure that out anymore? I’m disgusted enough to have to stop and wonder. Is America still a civilized enough nation to teach its citizens that this is a bad thing?

I can see where Bertolt Brecht’s mind was at when he wrote “The Interrogation of The Good.” Nurse Moton was a Good Nurse, working with a Good Doctor, in a Good clinic. When you abort a baby in a Good toilet, at a Good clinic with a Good pair of scissors, how can this be a bad thing?

I’m profoundly disgusted. It took this poor woman 30 iterations to figure out and admit to herself she was engaged in a hideous crime. You can make it as legal or illegal as you want, but it was a horrid crime. This woman was so blind she couldn’t see the difference between right and wrong. She couldn’t see the difference between murder and “just doing my job.”

She could have lived in The Matrix. It must have killed her inside when she finally woke up and took the Red Pill. May God have mercy on this woman’s dying soul. Now let’s discuss the souls of everyone else.

People knew that Gosnell was violating the terms and conditions of his license. They knew he was violating state laws. But we blur things. His defense attorney points out that Gosnell is black.


“It’s an elitist, racist prosecution,” Mr. McMahon said. “This black man is being taken because of who he is and where he works.”

Jeffrey Dahmer preferred eating his victims to dropping $5 at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Does the fact that Dahmer was white either mitigate or aggravate the circumstances surrounding his crime?

People try to argue Gosnell served the poor. He also kept pieces of them in his clinic’s freezer after he finished “serving” them. He also was quite the locker-room cut-up.

Tina Baldwin told the jurors that Gosnell once joked about a baby that was
writhing as he cut its neck: “that’s what you call a chicken with its head cut off.”

When the Gosnell apologists can’t change the subject, they trivialize it. Juan Williams expresses mystification that Republicans in Congress would waste people’s time on abortion. The Good people have Good things to do. It becomes a blur. If we don’t notice it, how can it be a bad thing?

Evil thrives when the Good people don’t care. Evil multiplies like bacteria on human waste when Good people take no action to say no to it. A colleague of mine wrote an email in which he expressed the theological opinion that a tide of evil was rising in the modern age. That perhaps Sauron had once more infested the lost towers of Mirkwood Forest. I hate to neg on his thesis (he’s a far smarter and more successful man than I), but he’s entirely too optimistic and gives the current generations of American people entirely too much credit.


We are a nation of people who wouldn’t even recognize the spawn of Mordor if the nine Ringwraiths had an undead gang-bang on the average suburban Amerikan’s front lawn. The evil of the modern age is The Evil of The Blur. It’s the evil of excusing things, or ignoring things, of just letting it all go as long as it isn’t impacting me.

I used to totally hate that video I posted atop the post. I can’t hate what I can’t intelligently argue against. I can want it to be false, but the guy calling Americans a nation increasingly populated by unaware, uncaring losers is speaking God’s truth. The Evil of The Blur is yet another way in which America increasingly fails to qualify anymore as a civilized nation. Hopefully Kermit Gosnell will make a few more of our fellow citizens wake up and swallow the red pill.
