Save the champagne for another day

Recently the news of Operation Scumbag’s financial tribulations was received with great cheer and the cracking open of assorted potables:  soon they would be too broke to kill doctors err, “save feti”.

But something wasn’t quite right with that picture: in June, OR was solvent enough to consider buying Dr. Tiller’s old clinic.      How could they go from “the goose that laid the golden egg”, as Head Scumbag Troy Newman recently described OR, to flat broke?

Unfortunately, it seems the rumours of Operation Rescue’s imminent and well-deserved demise have been grossly exaggerated, according to what Newman told One News Now:

Media obtained a copy of the letter and then started placing stories indicating Operation Rescue “is very close to shutting down unless emergency help arrives soon” (Associated Press). That report quotes Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman as saying: “We’re so broke (as the saying goes), we can’t even pay attention.”

But Newman tells OneNewsNow that report is an exaggeration. “Rumors of Operation Rescue’s demise are grossly overrated — and it’s something that the liberal left-wing media loves to salivate over,” he states.

…and it’s all the fault of the “liberal left-wing media”, of course.  How could they possibly misinterpret something like this:

Frankly, we’re getting very close to the point of shutting everything down if emergency help doesn’t arrive soon.

to mean that Operation Rescue was getting very close to the point of shutting everything down if emergency help didn’t arrive soon???

Keep that champagne on ice for later.

    “Comes he slow or comes he fast,
    It is but Death who comes at last!”

    Please, Death, come fast for this miserable, sick organization. Amen.

    Can you say “fundraising gimmick”?

    It’s just slimy and deceitful enough for them to do!

    That’s why Operation Rescue and all of The Fetus©™ fetishizing groups are, in Blob Blogging Wingnut’s very own words, a bunch of “lying liars lying their lies”.

    On top of everything else, they’re bad liars.

    Believe me, we ain’t going away. As long as baby killing is legal, we are not going away, as long as pro-deathers carry out their terror on the unborn, we ain’t going away.

    Ooooh, what are you going to do, Jasper, shoot us all? You’d love that wouldn’t you.

    Dr.Prole – Jasper is clearly unaware that abortion is a legal medical procedure. Tough shit, eh?

    fern hill – Yeah, it looks like it was a fundraising gimmick. Surprise! Operation Rescue LIES, even to its own supporters! What a bunch of rubes…

    Bina – They made a bad move last spring, which will come back to bite their fat asses. I’m not too worried about them, their fate is pretty much sealed.

  10. 11 JJ Thursday, September 17, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Michelle – Totally a fundraising gimmick. It doesn’t surprise me at all that they’d even lie to their own supporters just to put the arm on them for money. They’re scum.

    deBeauxOs – Lyin’ fer Jaysus, deBeaux. Lyin’ is okay when you’re lyin’ fer Jaysus.

    sassy – I know — I didn’t believe their little routine from the start. If they’ve got money to travel around harassing clinics, like they tried to do at Dr. Carhart’s, they’re doing okay. The goose that laid the golden egg! (But but but it’s all about teh beebees.)


Wait. What?
