Translating Julian Castro.

Spanish for WTF

“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, if poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose. And so I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion. More than that, everybody in this crowd and watching at home knows that in our country today, a person’s right to choose is under assault in places like Missouri and Alabama, in Georgia. I would appoint judges to the federal bench that understand the precedent of roe V. Wade and will respect it and in addition to that make sure that we fight hard as we transition our health care system to one where everybody can get and exercise that right.” So says previously invisible Democrat presidential wannabe Julian Castro. He isn’t invisible anymore. That comment, and others like it during the “debate” garnered money and expressions of support on his Twitter feed.

This guy must have worked in the Ingsoc Ministry of Truth, because his statement reads like something out of 1984, from which the following quote is taken: “The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink. The ministry of Truth spreads a new language amongst the populace called Newspeak, in which, for example, “truth” is understood to mean statements like 2 + 2 = 5 when the situation warrants. In keeping with the concept of doublethink, the ministry is thus aptly named in that it creates/manufactures “truth” in the Newspeak sense of the word.” For those of us who are too dense to understand his statement, allow me to translate into plainer English.

“I believe in the freedom to kill your preborn child while calling the act reproductive freedom, even though it actually terminates reproduction. But there are some barriers to extending this sacrament choice that need to be eliminated. Barrier one is the prejudice of narrow minded bigots against women who don’t have a uterus and who actually aren’t carrying babies fetuses but still want the sacrament choice of reproductive freedom. That includes transsexual former males who now superficially look female, and former females who had their uterus removed and/or took hormones to make their uterus nonfunctional. Why should they be denied?

The second barrier—and here’s where true reproductive justice resides—is the financial cost of the choice sacrament. Every woman, pregnant or not, biologically female or not, deserves to get money from the taxpayers government for this secular sacrament, and I misspoke when I said “I absolutely would cover the right to have an abortion” because I am not using my own money, but using other people’s money, that’s OPM, to fund reproductive freedom. Since the “other people” are you all, that will confer an honorary reproductive justice champion medal for every taxpayer, whether you want it or not. (We know what’s good for you, even when you don’t).” But I won’t stop there in the long march for reproductive justice. Women who are not pregnant, and lack a uterus, should not be left out when it comes to fleecing the taxpayers. Whatever our favorite charity—Planned Nonparenthood—charges for aborting the preborns, the unpregnant trans woman(?) should receive the same amount from government.

”I would appoint federal judges who will anoint a judicial version of Sherman’s March, through those regressive, oppressive states like Missouri, Alabama, and Georgia, because Roe V. Wade is the Old Testament Book of Judges—my favorite—writ large. Those people really understood freedom and justice. After, doesn’t it end with “everyone did what was right in their own mind?” That’s what we need more of!”
