“The left is desperate to compare the American pro-life movement to terrorists.”

The ghouls at Planned Parenthood have been working hard at spinning the recent shooting in Colorado Springs as an act of terrorism by a pro-life Christian. There is nothing at this point that would support any such claim. He was not a churchgoer. He had not been actively involved in any anti-abortion protests. The people who were killed were neither abortionists nor women seeking abortions. Nevertheless most of the mainstream media have been eager to parrot the misinformation put out by their fellow leftists at Planned Parenthood.

Erick Erickson had a very well written article yesterday that clearly describes what is going on. Here is an excerpt.

 

“This past Friday, a lunatic who lived in a shack with no running water or electricity killed three people in Colorado Springs, CO. He wound up going into a Planned Parenthood facility. Three people were killed. None of those were abortionists or patients. A pro-life Christian preacher/police officer was one of the victims.

At 3:30pm on Friday, while the facts were shifting and things were still unknown, I was already getting emails from leftists blaming me, my rhetoric, RedState, talk radio, Center for Medical Progress videos, etc. for the killings. Again, at that time the facts were still unknown and even now a lot of facts are unknown. The man was neither a church goer nor a pro-life activist. He was a lunatic.

But the left had its narrative. It had been searching for a moral equivalence since Paris and could not resist the fundraising opportunity to claim pro-life Christians were even a bigger threat than muslims. After all, according to the left, if someone shoots up a Planned Parenthood facility, it is proof that all Christians are one degree away from a terrorist related rampage. But when a Muslim walks into a place screaming “Allahu Akbar,” it’s just workplace violence.”

 

And this.

“The left is desperate to compare the American pro-life movement to terrorists. They damn well better be glad Christians follow a faith that tells them to honor and pray for their leaders, follow the law, love everyone, and let the state and not the individual act as the sword bearer for God.”

    Well, suggesting the movement is all terrorists is wrong, but THIS guy definitely committed an act of domestic terrorism. He killed strangers in service of an idea (no more baby parts) intending to cause fear in those seeking to go to PP. Erickson’s also flat wrong about the guy not being a pro-life activist. His ex said he’s performed criminal vandalism against them before, and has been opposed for decades: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/planned-parenthood-shooting-suspect-robert-dear-targeted-agency-ex-wife-n472421

      You seem to have missed the point of the article, and of my post.
      This man is mentally ill; Christians (and most pro-lifers) don’t believe it is right to kill just for revenge or that the end justifies the means; the left is spinning this way out of bounds while ignoring the videos that condemn(yes the unedited ones do condemn) Planned Parenthood.
