In what sense would Christians ever be against breast feeding? Our any healthy food initiative for that matter?

Basically what Q said, but literally.

Obscenity is easily invoked.

My bigger point is that it is a thing that enrages and distracts progressives.

Read KB’s comment, how is this just something to rule out as a distraction ?

Things can be multifaceted.

For Nestle et. al it's a win because they make more money when babies are formula fed and breastfeeding initiatives directly cause their sales to drop.

For the politicos, it's another flaming bag of dogshit to drop on the Democrats front door because they HAVE TO respond to it. It's the nature of the contemporary liberal to make days and days of news out of trigger word bull. This takes focus off of other nefarious shit and contributes to the general fatiguing of the left. Gish gallop but politically oriented and on a scale we have never seen in our lifetime.

Dude, Democrats/liberals care and say something because their side actually cares about dead babies. It’s not a waste of time and energy to care about dead babies. I get that you wrap yourself in cynicism like a child does their blanket but some things do actually matter/make a dfference. People can care about multiple problems at once.

And burn out matters in contemporary politics.

By Republican dogma every voting blue team member is already a baby murderer. You literally can't get worse.

titties are evil?

i'd have assumed that anything birth-and-child-related would be celebrated, though

Be as ironic as you want. Joel Osteen and the like are doing a thriving business.
