If you follow the link below to watch Carly Fiorina face off against a hostile media operative, you will notice some key techniques in good Freedom Apologetics. In this video, the questioner is Jake Tapper, who, I must confess, is not as partisan as most media operatives, but it is clear in this exchange that Tapper is doing the bidding of the pro-abortion progressives.
Fiorina is on this show to ostensibly talk about HER campaign, but Tapper asks her about a tweet the Hillary sent out calling Walker an extremist for signing a late-term abortion ban law that did not allow for exceptions for rape or incest.
Gov. Walker signed dangerous abortion restrictions into law in WI – without exceptions for rape or incest. Extreme and unacceptable. -H

Everyone knows Hillary is putting the word extremist in close proximity to ‘abortion restrictions.’ These restrictions involve not allowing a licensed doctor of the state to enter into a woman’s body and hack to death, poison, suction, or stab in the heart an unborn child past the 20 week mark of pregnancy.
The tiny ground of morality progressives still have left on abortions is in the often-quoted, and incredibly rare, circumstances of rape and incest triggering a woman’s desire to have a late term abortion. No one, of course, wants to ask how a woman has managed to go 20 weeks with a baby and can’t make it for the final 16 weeks, but I digress, and, like Carly, I want to stay on the solid moral ground that people of pro-life have, the fact that babies aborted after 20 weeks are brutally murdered in ways that no one, if they are fully aware of what such abortions entail, could defend them.
What Jake Tapper attempts to do is to offer Carly a very small piece of ground to stand on, to defend Walker’s signing of a piece of legislation that doesn’t allow for the exception of rape or incest. Tapper’s quote of Hillary’s tweet, repeating the tag “extremist”, is a nice attempt to subliminally let the listener know that being pro-life makes you an extremist, that Walker is an extremist, that Fiorina, unless she condemns Walker, is an extremist.
Carly does not accept the battlefield conditions. Like a good general, SHE chooses the battlefield and forces Tapper to defend the undefendable, the hacking of unborn babies, a procedure vigorously supported by Clinton and her pro-murder supporters. She turns the tables on Tapper, making this extremist label about Hillary and her support of an organization that, we are learning through undercover videos, is actually SELLING the hacked remains of babies.
What is more extreme, signing a bill that does not allow for the EXTREMELY rare cases of rape and incest triggering an abortion AFTER the 20th week of pregnancy, or supporting the hacking to death of unborn children so that Planned Parenthood can sell their brains and livers to scientists? This technique should simply be referred to as “define YOUR battlefield.” This is exactly what Fiorina did, she defined the battlefield, a battlefield where her ideas, her positions crush the opposition, and where Tapper ends up coming across a partisan hack desperately trying to score points against the political opponents of his handlers.

What I thought I was politically is changing. To some, I am evolving. To others, I may be devolving.
What is not changing is my commitment to the ideal of liberty as a right we inherit the moment the sperm fertilizes the egg.
What hasn’t changed is my commitment to seek the shadow of God’s law in the civic, which I hold to be liberty.
What IS changing is my understanding of the mechanisms through which that shadow is reflected, as well as America’s legacy in, partially, reflecting that liberty and, more completely, actually working against that liberty.
I will go forward where my explorations lead me, come what may. Though I realize in these times, where thought, where belief that is acceptable occupies an ever shrinking range, and is also ever visible and scrutinized, the cost for such exploration and the conclusions I may come to could cost me much.
