Conservative lie-driven Terrorism in America


Yeah. You lie - people die. That's what happens.

Headline: "Colorado Springs shooting: Gunman opens fire at Planned Parenthood clinic, three killed and several injured".

A sample of what comes from believing and repeating lies about Planned Parenthood.

I'm looking at you Leticia, I'm looking at you Right Wing Theocrat, and every other twit I've argued with who buys into fundamentalist extremism on the subject of a woman's basic right to make her own life's decisions. Into outright lies, repeated by Republican candidates just for their own fleeting political advantage even though they know they're lies.

This is what comes of your stupidity.

This is what comes of self-seeking scumbag conservative politicians whipping up hysteria because it influences the stupid, such as you.

Terrorism. Home grown. Dumb as dogshit. Just like all you Right wing morons.

" Vicki Saporta, president and chief executive of the National Abortion Federation, said her organisation had feared such an attack after the release of “highly edited, misleading anti-abortion videos was released in July”.

“This clinic is part of the Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains affiliate, which was featured in one of the highly-edited smear videos released this summer. Since that video, the affiliate has seen an increase in protesters and death threats against one of their doctors.

 Although anti-abortion groups may condemn this type of violence when it happens, the way that they target and demonize providers contributes to a culture where some feel it is justifiable to murder doctors simply because they provide women with the abortion care they need.

 Since 1977, there have been 8 murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, 186 arsons, and thousands of incidents of criminal activities. The last abortion provider was murdered in 2009 when NAF member Dr George Tiller was assassinated in his church in Wichita, Kansas.” "

  1. Thanks for the link to the Guardian, Magpie. Why does a British newspaper do a better job of reporting this than US ones? Too busy covering Trump's latest bon mots, I suppose.

    1. Because much of the media are cowards, or at least afraid to call something what it is. It's part of this phony 'objectivity' problem we have, wherein ANY position - no matter how destructive or based on lies - is somehow worthy of uncritical reporting.

      Even if they acknowledge the linkage they mealy mouth around it so Joe Average conservative dupe has no hope of joining the dots (they are not capable of it really anyway - they have to be TOLD by someone suitably 'Christian') and still imagines Planned Parenthood is harvesting babies for profit and all the other bullshit.

      It should be 10 foot high headline: "Planned Parenthood cleared and falsely accused - sleazy conservative politicians actively part to opportunistic defamation".

      But no... the demonization of Planned Parenthood has been one more reminder how evil - no other word quite does it - how EVIL the conservative manipulators in US politics really are, and how complicit large swaths of the media are in carrying forth their lies.
