Operation Rescue, the anti-abortion extremists whose decades-long campaign of harassment, demonization and terror against Dr. George Tiller culminated with his assassination last year, (although they had nothing, nothing to do with it, nothing at all!), is upset, or has hurt feelings or some bullshit.
Apparently this sleazy little gang of embryo-infatuated psychotics and born-again dingbats is all fired up about the upcoming MSNBC documentary on Dr. Tiller’s murder. Yes, that’s upcoming, as in they haven’t even seen it yet because it doesn’t air until Monday night (9pm eastern, be there or be square), but they’re already falling to the fainting couches in the frenzied throes of a collective persecution high.
OR’s head foetishist, Troy Newman, gave an interview for the documentary — because what documentary about Dr. Tiller’s murder would be complete without an interview with his Terrorizer-and-Demonizer-in-Chief? — but OR is clearly already preparing for a good persecution buzz. The prevailing expectation is that they will be “vilified” by the pro-abort radical Rachel Maddow, to which I say Good: what goes around comes around, see how Dr.Tiller felt for years while you brain-damaged sickos were vilifying him. (The big difference of course is that the Operation Rescue creeps don’t need to worry about some nutcase giving them two behind the ear as a direct result of the vilification.) Oh yeah, and boo hoo hoo:
“We agreed to do the show — even though we knew they would vilify us — because we had a third story to tell, and that is the story of the tens of thousands of innocent babies killed by abortion during Tiller’s long and checkered abortion career,” said Newman.
OR’s brainless little diatribe winds up with a reminder to tune in to MSNBC at 9pm Monday (check your local listings!). Can you imagine the tsunami of caps-locked emails storming onto the MSNBC servers at 10pm? Maybe Rachel will feature some of the “best” ones on the next day’s show!
Operation Rescue’s part in Dr. Tiller’s assassination is an unresolved issue that they’d rather would just stay that way. Programs like the MSNBC documentary and persistent hammering at the issue by news commentators like Rachel Maddow (and to a lesser degree, tenacious pro-choice bloggers) are the only things that stand between them and a total Get Out Of Jail Free card on the Tiller murder, and free reign to continue their campaign of terror against other doctors.
