I just got home and was trying to get some more on the 5 W’s of Dr. Tiller’s murder this morning, and one of the first articles I surfed on to just stopped me in my tracks, astonished.
I would have thought that at this point, knowing that their violent rhetoric is what made this happen, even the batshit insane anti-choice freaks would know enough to dial it down a little… wrong.
Today Randall Terry (head of anti-choice terrorists Operation Rescue) stepped up to the plate to say:
“George Tiller was a mass murderer and we cannot stop saying that,” Terry said. “He was an evil man — his hands were covered with blood.”
But the real insanity is that Terry’s worried about a backlash against anti-choicers:
Terry said he was now concerned that the Obama administration “will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions.”
“Our most effective rhetoric and actions” — which is to incessantly scream “baby-killer, Tiller the Killer, mass-murderer, blood on his hands” until some rabid, spittle-flecked, scripture-screaming psycho, whipped into a Jesus-driven frenzy, takes that rhetoric to its ultimate conclusion with a high-powered rifle. How could it possibly play out any other way?
Oh, and this is really rich: “Priest for Life” and Operation Rescue hangaround Father Frank Pavone (much-beloved by fetus fetishists everywhere including our own SUZANNE), had this to say:
“I am saddened to hear of the killing of George Tiller this morning. At this point, we do not know the motives of this act, or who is behind it, whether an angry post-abortive man or woman, or a misguided activist, or an enemy within the abortion industry, or a political enemy frustrated with the way Tiller has escaped prosecution. We should not jump to conclusions or rush to judgment.
Well, somebody “rushed to judgement” this morning, and made themselves not only judge, but jury and executioner. And somehow I don’t think it was an “angry post-abortive woman”, but nice try, Father Frank. IDIOT.
If these two quotes are any indication, in the coming days it should be interesting, if nauseating, to see what kind of outrageously stupid and delusional statements the anti-choice whackjobs make about this tragedy. For so long, they’ve been whipping themselves into derangement of such brain-damaged magnitude that they can’t help themselves.
I only hope that, the real face of anti-abortion terrorism having been revealed once again, anti-choicers will be more marginalized than ever as the sane and rational recoil from them in loathing and disgust.
Meanwhile, I still shoot back.
