All good people love hobbits.  As W. H. Auden observed in 1954, they are heroes who saved the day for the Dwarves in The Hobbit, and who fought to prevent evil from dominating the world in the Lord of the Rings.

They are also real-world heroes who, in 2013, are working to speak truth to power through citizen journalism which probes corruption and criminality in politics ignored by the mainstream media.  James O’Keefe (author of a New York Times bestselling book, Breakthrough) and his fellow citizen journalists with Project Veritas are likewise beloved by all good people, and for that reason are sometimes likened to hobbits.

Last week, previously unknown radical feminist Sarah Alcid of the leftist Reproductive Health Technologies Project (an organization so secretive it declines to identify its supporters) came to wide public attention for her ill-considered Twitter attack on a well-established conservative journalist, Robert Stacy McCain — and her subsequent claim, and those of her friends, that by writing about her in response, McCain was “stalking” and “harassing” her.

Even more interesting than the attack by Ms. Alcid and her friends on McCain is the moniker they collectively employ.  Given their feminist orientation and interest in abortion, they proudly call themselves “#AbortionBitches.”

Thomas Donnelly of the American Enterprise Institute has an opinion piece in today’s Wall Street Journal on one of the newer “progressive” plans  to classify wide swaths of the American population as “victims” in need of expensive treatments funded by taxpayer dollars which flow to the progressives’ allies in the medical and counselling industries — just another aspect of a general scheme that might be termed the “victimology industry.” (more…)
