Painful ‘SNL’ skit mocks pro-life activists, pushes Planned Parenthood agenda

This is what liberal comedy looks like.

A hangover-inducing sketch on “Saturday Night Live” put the pro-abortion movement on display in all its empty glory Saturday night with a five-minute advertisement for Planned Parenthood that tried to reduce the pro-life movement to the exclusive province of weak, white men still smarting from getting dumped when they were 18 in high school.

0310snlThe five-minutes-of-root-canal sketch starred Lena Dunham – the actress whose campaign ad in the fall comparing voting for President Obama with a woman having sex for the first time combined a new low in political discourse with a lower opinion of sexual intercourse. Its one male character was played by SNL staffer Mike O’Brien, a caricature portrayed as a “grassroots activist” who organized protests that closed two Planned Parenthood clinics.

Dunham’s character is repelled. Planned Parenthood, she claims, provides “low-cost medical advice and care” to women. Since neither Dunham’s character on stage nor Planned Parenthood in reality brags about the fact that the organization makes its real money as the country’s single largest abortion provider, the skit skips over the bleeding, deadly reality of PP’s “advice and care” completely.

As the skit’s liberal logic unfolds, the white, progressives personified by Dunham convince the skit’s hot-blooded, heavily accented Latina (played by Cecily Strong) to dump O’Brien. She doesn’t seem to mind much, since “sex wich you is no good” anyway.

On the whole, it’s about as satisfying a fantasy as progressives could ask for: dogmatic white women vanquish weak white men, while patronizingly helping the lower orders whose sole interest in the whole thing is just sexual anyway.

As a sketch on a comedy show, it was remarkably not funny. As a free advertisement for Planned Parenthood’s industrial-sized abortion network, it was remarkably valuable.

But as a look at the intellectual shallowness and essential hypocrisy of the pro-death  “progressive” movement, it was priceless.

For whatever it’s worth, here it is.
