Co-Monsters Of The Week

Slightly shorter Randall Terry: We must continue to peacefully call abortion providers bloody mass murderers who thumb their noses at the law, and if some brave Christian patriot poor misguided soul should take that the wrong way, well, what can you do.

Much shorter Randall Terry: Totally not our fault.  When do we eat?

Shorter BillO: Will no-one rid me of this troublesome doctor?

The Party Of Death’s Army Of Bad Apples

Why is it that the Party Of Life, the party that’s supposedly all about God and Jesus, is so positively gleeful about murder?  After a right-wing nut with Operation Rescue’s phone number in his car shoots a late-term abortion provider in the head outside of his church, the right-wing’s reaction can only be described as gloating.  And it’s not just the smug, sneering “he had it coming” tweets and comments from random crazies.  Check out the response from Operation Rescue’s Randall Terry:

George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God.   I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller’s killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches.

And:

“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.”

No regret, no remorse, no sorrow – Terry just wants to remind everyone that Tiller was a mass murderer who committed murder in an evil murdery way.  In fact, Tiller is the only murderer in Terry’s statements.

But God forbid that anyone should view Tiller’s murder as some kind of unflattering reflection on the anti-abortion movement, or proof that the threat of violent right-wing extremism is real and not just the fantasy of a left-wing DHS.

No, the right wants each and every murderer and attempted murderer (and there are many, especially among the Orwellianly-named “pro-life” movement) that they spawn with their violent hate rhetoric to be viewed as just one lone nut, an isolated case that has absolutely nothing at all to do with their political movement or culture, even as they egg them on and celebrate their actions, either openly or behind closed doors.

Just a few bad apples, acting completely on their own with no direction from anyone else, just like at Abu Ghraib.

Staring at the swim team gets you killed by a gang of dancing ninja men who know how to twirl.
