It’s been mighty interesting watching anti-choicers distance themselves from the recent shooting at Planned Parenthood. It’s especially fun watching these particular fuckwits squrim, because to me they are indirectly responsible for what happened.
David Daleiden, the head of the Center for Medical Progress, the group that released controversial and heavily edited videos of Planned Parenthood employees earlier this year, said that he did not support violence against the organization.
“The Center for Medical Progress condemns the barbaric killing spree in Colorado Springs by a violent madman. We applaud the heroic efforts of law enforcement to stop the violence quickly and rescue the victims, and our thoughts and prayers are with the wounded, the lost, and their families,” he said in a statement.
A “violent madman”? Oh, that’s a good one. Yes, just dismiss him as a random wacko — not someone who took as gospel your bullshit accusations that Planned Parenthood is selling pieces of dead babies to the highest bidder. The shooter is probably a crackpot, but you fed his fears and paranoia with your bald-faced lies. Hell, the guy actually said “No more baby parts!” The term “baby parts” has been directly connected to your propaganda video for months. And can you honestly say he wouldn’t have done this if the right wing hadn’t ramped up its attacks on women’s health in the past couple of years? The amount of hate and terror coming from anti-choicers has reached ridiculous levels lately. And now people are dead.
Coordinated inflammatory partisan stunts like the fake Planned Parenthood videos provide motivation of mentally unstable domestic terrorists who subscribe to the extreme right-wing agenda and treat Republican lies as truth to attack.
Those Republican members of Congress, who plotted and carried out the campaign against Planned Parenthood, are indirectly responsible for an act of domestic terrorism.
Donald Trump and other Republicans are trying distance themselves from the domestic terrorist by calling him a maniac, but Republicans can’t escape the fact that the shooter was inspired by their attacks on Planned Parenthood.
I’m sure you’re cheering inside, though. You secretly hoped something like this would happen, because you can always distance yourself with a little P.R. spin. This kind of collateral damage suits your agenda just fine. Congratulations. Next time maybe it’ll be a bomb that takes out a dozen women at a clinic, and then you can throw a party!
I don’t suppose the media will be calling him a terrorist any time soon either, because white Christians are never terrorists in this country. They’re just “disturbed” or “loners”, or even just “violent madmen.” That terrorism stuff is for brown people, right?
