Carly Fiorina has accused Planned Parenthood of keeping human fetuses alive so that their brains can be harvested. She also claims that she has seen a video that proves her accusation. Planned Parenthood has denied the allegation. Therefore, Carly Fiorina now has the burden of proof. She needs to produce the video. She obviously cannot do that or she would have produced it by now. Two videos have been produced. The second was produced by her own PAC. Neither one proves what she said. Therefore, she is lying.
The analysis is really just that simple. Let’s look at another example.
If I claimed that I saw a video in which Carly Fiorina sacrificed a newborn child on a stone altar before a statue of Satan by cutting out its heart and eating it in order to obtain his assistance in winning the election, and she denied doing that, I would expect her to challenge me to put up or shut up.
She is a liar and given the disturbing nature of the lie, I have concluded that she is unfit to serve as President of the United States.
I thought it was symbolically fitting that the curtain came crashing down behind her last night when she was speaking to a group of business women in San Antonio.
Don’t misunderstand me. I’m glad no one was injured. I do not wish harm to anyone. But the symbolic significance of the event is striking.
