An eBay auction planned by abortion opponents to raise money for the man accused of killing Wichita abortion doctor George Tiller will not be permitted, company officials said Tuesday.
“Based on the details we know about the anticipated listings, we believe these would violate our policy regarding offensive material,” the company said in a statement to The Kansas City Star. “EBay will not permit the items in question to be posted to the eBay site, and they will be removed if they are posted.”
That’s a relief, though not entirely unexpected. Virtually every item on the block for this little online terrorist bake sale violated Ebay’s Offensive Material policy, especially the “murderabilia” and “violent felons” categories. What was totally, boringly, stultifyingly predictable was the response of the would-be “auctioneers”, who immediately unleashed a shitstream of mindless and meaningless gibberish about free speech and the Constitution:
“They’re not only chilling the First Amendment of the Constitution, they’re raping the whole Constitution,” said Regina Dinwiddie, a Kansas City abortion opponent and friend of Roeder.
Raping the whole Constitution!! Right, well let’s hope the Constitution doesn’t find itself pregnant as a result, because Dinwiddie would no doubt force it by any means necessary to carry the pregnancy to term.
