Schadenfreude Cake with Instant karma

Instant Karma gonna get you
Gonna knock you right in the head
You better get yourself together
Pretty soon you’re gonna be dead

What in the world you thinking of?
Laughing in the face of love
What on Earth you tryna do?
It’s up to you, yeah, you:

A Kansas disciplinary panel said Thursday that former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline should be indefinitely suspended from practicing law in the state because of the “dishonest and selfish” way he pursued abortion clinics.

The recommendation of the attorney disciplinary board culminates a turbulent six-year period in which Kline — as attorney general and later Johnson County district attorney — presided over investigations of the late George Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita and Planned Parenthood in Overland Park.

Now that’s a nice sight to see on a sunny Friday.  Phill Kline, the fetus fetishizing ex-Kansas A-G who relentlessly pursued Dr. George Tiller for years and for naught, is finally getting his comeuppance.  And it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy: apart from Scott Roeder, no one person has more of Dr. Tiller’s blood on his hands than Phill (yes, he really spells it with 2 L’s) Kline.

It isn’t hyperbole to say Kline was obsessed with Tiller.  His entire term as Kansas A-G was devoted to a legal harassment crusade against the doctor.  For 6 years Kline, in and out of office, routinely dragged Tiller into court on goofy trumped-up charges that were either cleared or dismissed.   Now just imagine the brain-damaged Scott Roeder observing all this, his fragile mind spiraling into ever more savage fury as he watches the courts vindicate the doctor time and again, in case after case.  Until finally he decides to mete out his own kind of justice.

So, good:  ass righteously kicked by karma, Phill (2 L’s, seriously) is finally being put out to pasture where he can’t bother anyone.  The closest he’ll get to abusing (I hesitate to call what Kline did “practicing”) law is his professorship at Falwell’s respected *cough* “Liberty School of Law”.  That’s the dollop of whipped cream on the schadenfreude cake.

And we all shine on…

Careful, Operation Rescue…

… that “shoulder to shoulder” stance would put his hands in pretty close proximity to your wallet.

Operation Rescue promotes Tiller documentary

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.


Old design -- wonder why they changed it

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.

MSNBC documentary on Dr. George Tiller

In two weeks (Monday October 25th), Rachel Maddow will be narrating an hour-long documentary on last year’s assassination of Dr. Tiller:

Some bloggers have kept on top of this story from Day One, and continue to do so as it looks like the Feds are finally reaching out to see what other slime they can scoop up from around Dr. Tiller’s assassin.  As many of us have insisted from the start, there might well be a conspiracy case to be made, considering the ongoing, literally decades-long campaign of harassment, demonization and physical attacks that Dr. Tiller was subjected to over the years.  Now, some 16 months later, this might finally be coming to fruition.

As they’re saying at Maddowblog, it’s not over yet.

 

What we’ve suspected all along

Though under current conditions it’s unlikely that any legal culpability will ever be proven, it’s always been clear that the assassination of Dr. George Tiller one year ago today wasn’t exactly the act of a single demented nutjob.  Scott Roeder has a longstanding association with the farthest whacked out fringes of the anti-abortion movement, many of whom openly and unabashedly advocate violence against abortion providers or have proudly committed it themselves.   It’s a nest of cockroaches that only scatter when one of them actually kills someone.

Arguing against the “lone wolf” theory, Ms. Magazine uses a Venn diagram to show overlap between the wheels of the frenzied fascist machine in which Roeder was a just another greasy little cog:

The article makes some interesting points about Criminal Conspiracy law:

In international terrorism cases, in organized crime cases, even in drugtrafficking cases, conspiracy charges can be filed when two or more people enter into an agreement to commit an unlawful act. In fact, of the 159 people convicted of international terrorism by the U.S. since 9/11, more than 70 percent were sentenced for conspiracy (or for “harboring” terrorists). Once a person becomes a member of the conspiracy, she or he is held legally responsible for the acts of other members done in furtherance of the conspiracy, even if she or he is not present or aware that the acts are being committed.

The government does not have to prove that conspirators have entered into any formal agreement. Because they are trying to hide what they are doing, criminal conspirators rarely do such things as draw up contracts. Nor does the government have to show that the members of the conspiracy state between themselves what their object or purpose or methods are. Because they are clandestine, criminal conspirators rarely discuss their plans in a straightforward way. The government only has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the members of a conspiracy, in some implied way, came to mutually understand they would attempt to accomplish a common and unlawful plan.

If anti-abortion terrorism was prosecuted the same way as Islamic terrorism, Scott Roeder would likely have some company in the pen.   Until that happens, these networks of brainless scum have little to lose by encouraging anyone among them who might be so inclined to Get It On.

Dueling Days of Infamy

One of the most entertaining things about Fetustock is the posters and placards emblazoned with slogans that all boil down to demands that the government get the hell back into womens’ wombs where it belongs.  A perennial favourite is one that says “MAY 14, 1969:  CANADA’S DAY OF INFAMY“.  That would be the day Trudeau passed the dreaded Omnibus bill that legalized abortion (and homosex!), and that is why this little shindig is held during the first part of May.  DAY OF INFAMY!

But there’s another Day of Infamy anniversary coming up soon:  the first anniversary of the day that one of these lint-brained, hypocritical-ass self-described “Pro-Lifers” gunned down an abortion provider in cold crazed blood while he served as an usher in his church.  In his church.

I suspect that Day Of Infamy will pass quietly for anti-choicers as they attend their own church services in the smug, warm afterglow of their March for “Life” and pray for the feti, unencumbered by any fear of getting shot in the face by an unhinged stranger as they do.

Why am I not surprised

… that anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder isn’t exactly doing his sentence for the murder of Dr. George Tiller “standing on his head” (to use the vernacular of the incarcerated)?

Boohoohoo.  Well, what the hell, eh?  I wonder what he expected, after committing a murder and following it up by demonstrating a complete lack of remorse, and even self-righteousness, in court.  This is the drool-spattered depravity of the mental defectives who believe that something they call “God’s Law” supercedes the “laws of man”:  the Psychology of Theocracy.  And they walk among us.  I’m not necessarily saying Be Afraid, but definitely Be Aware.

Retirement Day

for Blue Dog Dem anti-abortion crusader Bart Stupak :shock:

Rep. Bart Stupak, an anti-abortion Democrat targeted for defeat by tea party activists for his role in securing House approval of the health care overhaul, said Friday he’s retiring after 18 years in Congress now that his main legislative goal has been accomplished.

Stupak said at a news conference that he decided within the last 36 hours not to seek a 10th term. He said he had considered retirement for years but was persuaded to stay because of the prospect of serving with a Democratic majority and helping win approval of the health care overhaul.

So the ‘baggers carve a notch in their “not-retreated-reloaded” gun stocks.

In spite of Stupak’s recalcitrant assholishness over abortion during the health care reform debate, I almost feel sorry for the guy… this obviously isn’t an immediate career move he was considering before the passage of the bill resulted in a deluge of spittle-flecked death threats to him and his family from his so-called “pro-life” cohorts.

You lie down with dogs…

UPDATE: When I said I “almost” feel sorry for Stupak, the key word of course was “almost”.  But what little sympathy I had for this attention-seeking anti-choice drama queen evaporated when I read this.

It’s like the old fable of the woman and the snake… you knew what they were when you picked them up, Bart.

Compare & Contrast

Anti-abortion terrorist Randall Terry holds forth about the Scott Roeder trial at his usual fire-and-brimstone venue, the “Christian” Newswire:

“When the rule of law and the law of blood clash, such as in George Tiller’s death, we must not pretend that there is no connection between Mr. Tiller’s shedding of innocent blood and Scott Roeder’s act of violence against him. There is sowing; there is reaping.”

Now is the time at UOH when we juxtapose!:

“Obama has followed the footsteps of his predecessor in increasing animosity toward Muslims and increasing enemy fighters and establishing long-term wars,” the recording said. “So the American people should get ready to reap the fruits of what the leaders of the White House have planted throughout the coming years and decades.”

The magnitude might be greater, but the sentiments are exactly the same.

From “pro-lifer” to lifer

Bye-bye, dickhead:

In a trial that never became the referendum on abortion that some abortion foes wanted, Scott Roeder, a 51-year-old airport shuttle driver, was convicted today of murdering George Tiller, one the nation’s few physicians who performed late-term abortions.

The jury of seven men and five women deliberated for only 37 minutes. Roeder faces life in prison after being convicted of first-degree murder.

37 minutes?  What took ya??

A woman-educated physician

Physicians for Reproductive Choice has released two “never-before-seen” tapes from a candid interview given by Dr. George Tiller for their documentary, “Voices of Choice“.   Dr. Tiller discusses why he chose to be an abortion provider, and why he stuck with it through years of ongoing harassment, threats and assassination attempts, the last of which took his life.

The experiences of Dr.Tiller’s father, a physician who secretly provided illegal abortions in the desperate days before Roe v. Wade got the government out of American wombs, had a profound effect on him.   As he remarks in the first video,

The women in my father’s practice for whom he did abortions educated me and taught me that abortion is not about babies, it’s not about families. Abortion is about women’s hopes, dreams, potential, the rest of their lives. Abortion is a matter of survival for women.

A woman-educated physician, indeed.
