As the impeachment hearings carry on, the media is floating a narrative that Democrats fill the role as “protector of whistleblowers.” Leader of the impeachment push, Rep. Adam Schiff, publicly lauds the importance of “protecting” the alleged whistleblower from exposure. (You can look up the alleged name, but I’ve heard Facebook may be suspending accounts who post the name on their site, so I won’t publish it here at the moment). The establishment media reflects this sentiment, refusing to publish the name that has been out in conservative media for weeks. Democrats fret for the “safety and security” of the whistleblower, and Nancy Pelosi said in an interview, “I take witness intimidation VERY seriously.”
In 2015, David Daleiden, an undercover journalist, filmed executives at Planned Parenthood discussing the criminal sale of baby parts on the medical market. Daleiden was undercover for over 3 years working to document and expose this atrocity, finally coming out as a whistleblower. Planned Parenthood officials negotiated over prices of baby hearts, lungs, livers and brains. Dr. Deborah Nucatola described how she dealt with babies, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.” Footage also showed attendees of the National Abortion Federation making jokes about eyeballs from aborted babies “rolling down their laps.” If you can believe it, there are several more videos that are even more disturbing. Daleiden has been sued by Planned Parenthood and lost. Planned Parenthood was never brought under scrutiny by any major media source. The media and Democrats criticized Daleiden for being “dishonest” and blew off the video evidence completely.
There are many whistleblowers who have not been given the same respect as the Ukraine whistleblower – both in government and the private sector. Conveniently, when it hurts a conservative or Republican, the media starts to care. Next time you hear a Democrat sanctimoniously preach about the “importance of whistleblower secrecy” . . . remember David Daleiden.
