discourage any person from obtainingrnreproductive health services.”rnThe threat of prison, however, appliesrnonly to those who protest for moral reasons,rnand not to striking clinic workers.rnThe interesting thing about the Kennedy-rnSchumer bill is that it specificallv exemptsrnlabor pickets. No paddy wagonsrnwill be dispatched by Senator Kennedyrnto pick up the clinic receptionists whornare striking for flex time or better dentalrnbenefits, even if their sidewalk actionsrn”discourage” patients from entering. It’srnthose who might have some ethicalrnquestions about the widespread use ofrnabortion as a method of birth controlrnwho need to watch their step.rnIn a recent speech in Texas, HillaryrnRodham Clinton said, “The marketrnknows the cost of everything but the valuernof nothing.” This “sleeping sicknessrnof the soul” is one of Hillary Clinton’srnlong-running concerns. She rejected thern”acquisitive” life in her 1969 commencementrnspeech at Wellesley College,rnand she continues to wonder “Whornwill lead us out of the spiritual vacuum?”rnin her recent New York Times Magazinerncover interview. She’s probablyrnright. There must be more to life thanrnwriting laws that protect striking abortionrnworkers against liability for ingressrnand egress blockages.rnIf she was off the record and awayrnfrom the ideologues at NOW and thernAFL-CIO, one wonders if Hillary Clintonrnwould acknowledge the underlyingrnmaterialism in allowing picketing for payrnraises but not for the expression of moralrndisagreement. Isn’t that putting “thernmarket” before values? Doesn’t that putrnthe “acquisitive” on a pedestal?rnThere is, too, the question of a doublernstandard, with the Kennedy-Schumerrnbill criminalizing acts and speech thatrnare intended to “discourage abortion,”rnwhile the same type of activities outsidernthe Embassy of South Africa, which arernintended to discourage trade, aren’t penalizedrnwith the same jail time. This differentialrntreatment for the same conductrnflows from the assumption thatrnthose protesting outside the embassy arerngood pro-democracy activists, whilernthose outside the abortion clinics arc antiwomanrnbigots. Any discussion aboutrnthe potential for totalitarianism in SouthrnAfrican Marxism is considered reactionary,rnand to say that half of all fetuses arernpotential women is completely off limits.rnA big mystery in all of this is how SenatorrnKennedy moved like lightning tornpropose federal protection for abortionrnclinics after the senseless murder of Dr.rnDavid Cunn in Pensacola and yet wasrnfully unmoved when Won Tae Lee wasrnmurdered in his store not too far fromrnthe senator’s office in Washington. Lee’srnkilling was part of something worse, arnwidening pattern of murdered Koreanrnstorekeepers from coast to coast, whilernDr. Gunn was the only abortion doctorrnkilled in America during two decades ofrnanti-abortion demonstrations. Whatrnlaw would Senator Kennedy propose ifrnfour abortion doctors were killed in Manhattan?rnThat’s the number of Koreanrngrocers killed in New York City lastrnyear—just Korean grocers, not Koreanrnflorists or landlords, in just one citv inrnone year.rnIn South Central L.A., Korean entrepreneursrnnow run a I-in-250 chancernof being killed each year, about the samernfatality rate our troops faced in Vietnam.rnHvung Soo Kim, 65, was recently beatenrnto death outside his grocery store in LosrnAngeles. He had survived the riot ofrn1992 and rebuilt his looted market. Thisrntime, he was lured outside his store byrntwo young punks who were sprav-paintingrngraffiti on his wall. Four other Koreanrnstorekeepers were killed within twornmonths in the same area this year.rnIce Cube makes a good living rappingrnabout the slaughter in his song “BlackrnKorea”: “So don’t follow me up andrndown your market, or your little choprnsuey ass will be a target.” If hit songs glorifiedrnthe killing of abortionists, wouldn’trnSenator Kennedy be calling the music arnhate crime?rnNone of these murders of Koreanrnbusinessmen stirred the liberals in Washingtonrnas much as the one politicalK’ incorrectrnmurder of Dr. Gunn. It wasrnfront-page news when the Senate passedrnthe CHnic Entrances Bill. The headlinernin the Washington Post was “AbortionrnClinics Given Protection,” while backrninside the newspaper on page D-3 onrnthe same day was a small story aboutrnthe murder of Uwoma Afamefuna Elue,rn39, at the Metro Food Store in CapitolrnHeights. He was shot in the foreheadrnwith a sawed-off shotgun on the laternshift the night before.rnMaybe murders of small-businessrnowners arc politically correct now. Perhapsrnliberals see the slaughter of Momand-rnPop proprietors as proof that theirrnwhole analysis and agenda arc right.rn”Those weren’t criminals,” explainedrnRepresentative John Conyers aboutrnthose who rioted and looted in L.A. andrnleft 51 dead, “they were outraged citizens.”rnRev. Jesse Jackson says, “Desperaternpeople do desperate things,” whilernRepresentative Maxine Waters says, “Nornjustice, no peace.” These politicians arerncoloring it as expected and understandable,rneven excusable, for people to killrntheir neighbors if they don’t like the outcomernof a trial. From there, it’s a shortrnstep to saying it’s okay to kill Koreanrnstorekeepers because the world’s unfair.rnEach year, the loudspeakers from thernpoliticians and the entertainers move usrncloser to saying that hopeless and frustratedrnpeople are entitled to kill. In hisrnHome Invasion album, Ice-T says “Wernhave a common enemy and that’s thernpeople who don’t want to give out equality.”rnBill Clinton says that the “free ride”rnis over for the “elite few” who didn’t payrntheir “fair share” in the 80’s. He neverrnexplains that the top 25 percent of incomernearners pay over three-fourths ofrnthe federal tax bill. “Who you going tornblame it on, me?” asks Ice-T about therncoming urban war that he predicts—rn”Try your quest for wealth,” he answers.rn”I have news for the forces of greed,”rnwarns Bill Clinton, “your time has comernand gone.” Maybe that’s what the killersrnof Won Tae Lee and Hyung Soo Kimrnwere thinking. Maybe they overdosed onrnBill Clinton’s class-warfare rhetoric.rnMaybe they think “12 years of neglect”rnmakes them exempt from moral standards,rnresponsibility, and guilt.rn”Who will lead us out of the spiritualrnvacuum?” asks Hillary Rodham Clinton.rnShe could start the journey by tellingrnthe truth about the 1980’s. She couldrnsay that the number of black familiesrnearning o’er $50,000 per year tripled inrnthe past 12 years, and that women entrepreneursrnin America now employrnmore people than the Fortune 500.rnRather than exaggerating every obstacle,rnshe could say that the number ofrnwhite male and black male executivesrnand managers expanded by 12 percentrnand 45 percent respectively in the 80’s,rnwhile the number of black female executivesrnand managers jumped by 120 percent.rnInstead of trying to maximize thernnumbers of Americans who see themselvesrnas victims in need of a larger nannyrnstate, she could point to the successesrnand opportunities that surround everyrnone of us.
