Colorado Republican: Planned Parenthood Deserves Terrorist Attacks


Author: john prager

Emphasis Mine

On Black Friday, a right-wing Christian extremist — a deeply religious man who praised anti-abortion terrorists as “heroes”  — by the name of Robert Dear ranted about “baby parts” as he succumbed to the feverish right-wing rhetoric regarding Planned Parenthood’s role as Satan’s “baby parts” mill, attacked one of the organization’s facilities in Colorado. The terrorist attack, which left three dead and nine others wounded, sparked a one-sided debate from the Right, who insisted that the shooter was a “transgendered leftist activist” who simply botched a bank robbery and ducked into the health care facility for cover. Unfortunately for our friends on the Right, reality is a thing, and those theories were quickly stamped out by people who aren’t mystified by the technical aspects of using a toothpick.

In their desperation to blame someone — anyone — but themselves, those responsible for the rhetoric have resorted to a favored right-wing tactic: blaming the victim. On Monday, Colorado State Rep. JoAnn Windholz said that Planned Parenthood — not the shooter, not the anti-abortion group that produced the fraudulent “baby parts” videos, not Republicans who consintued to spread the lies — was responsible for this act of right-wing terrorism.



“When violent acts happen at a Planned Parenthood facility, the left goes on ‘auto-pilot’ blaming eveyone in sight when they should be looking in a mirror,” she wrote. “Free speech has brought to light the insidious selling of baby body parts (pph has no shame),” she wrote, adding that “these facts and overall mission of the abortion industry would send anyone over the hill who wasn’t rational.” She added:

“Violence is never the answer, but we must start pointing out who is the real culprit. The true instigator of this violence and all violence at any Planned Parenthood facility is Planned Parenthood themselves. Violence begets violence. So Planned Parenthood: YOU STOP THE VIOLENCE INSIDE YOUR WALLS.”

Windholtz was, of course, referencing the fraudulent Center for Medical Progress video whose deceptive editing started the faux-outrage against Planned Parenthood and the “baby parts” rhetoric that spread through conservative media.

In another post, this surely God-fearing conservative woman joined Dear in his illogical hatred of Barack Obama, quoting Christian extremist Franklin Graham’s complaint that the President is ruining America for white people, calling it “well worth reading” and “sad but so true”:

The American Dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio .The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind. A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays , Government Workers, Union Members, Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell ‘s America.
The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch, the Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky ‘s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the “New World Order”.

This may seem off-topic at first glance, but the ending puts the Right’s willingness to embrace violence on full display. In fact, Windholtz seems to feel people like Dear are necessary in carrying out her hateful agenda:

It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.
Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness…

Zealots — zealots like Robert Dear, Dylann Roof, and the Millers — are necessary, according to her post, to “restore our beloved cuntry to its former status.”

Think about that.

Windholtz has since deleted her Planned Parenthood post — but you can still find her disgusting quote about how much whites are suffering.




Republicans are Nothing More Than Cheerleaders for Hate, Ignorance and Intolerance

Sometimes I’ve joked that my life would have much simpler had I just been a Republican. Doesn’t it just seem easier? Just grab a Bible; go to church 52 days a year; hang a flag at your home; go buy a gun; only worry about yourself; and repeat whatever talking points you’re fed by the conservative media and you’re good to go.
No complex or critical thinking is required. In fact, both of those are highly discouraged. Look at some of the more well-known members of the conservative media; people like Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck or Bill O’Reilly. These are people who’ve become stars among conservatives for simply spouting utter nonsense as often as possible. I firmly believe that right now I could go give a speech at a conservative event, have no idea what the event was about, and just using what I know about Republicans I could have people in attendance giving me standing ovations throughout most of my speech. It’s not hard to do. These are the people who claim to be “fighters for good, Christian family values,” yet support people like Ted Nugent, Rush Limbaugh and Donald Trump (who was actually a speaker at the Iowa Freedom Summit) simply because they often make derogatory statements about President Obama and liberals in general. I’m not sure how you can claim that you’re defenders of “family values” when: Trump has been married three times (so much for that sanctity of marriage). Nugent dodged the draft (so much for supporting the troops), has threatened the president’s life and is an admitted sexual predator. Limbaugh has been married four times (again, so much for sanctity of marriage), is an admitted drug addict and constantly demeans women. Oh, but it’s okay because they all love guns and hate President Obama. And apparently that’s all you really need to do in order to be “loved” by these good, wholesome “Christians” standing for family values and the “moral majority.” And let’s not forget the “family values” that were on full display a few months ago by tea party queen herself Sarah Palin during a late-night drunken brawl her family was involved in. Apparently, even her 5-year-old grandson was a witness to it. Nothing says “good Christian values” quite like riding around in a limo late at night with several members of your family intoxicated, crashing parties – with a 5-year-old in the car.
But, again, she loves guns and hates President Obama, so she’s just fine by conservatives. The truth is, these people are nothing but cheerleaders for hate, ignorance and intolerance. Anyone can get on a stage and bash homosexuals, attack President Obama, praise guns and say “God Bless America” and these people would stand in awe, cheering like mindless drones programmed to respond to certain words or phrases. That’s really all it takes for conservatives to support anyone. If you can spout enough anti-liberal nonsense on a large enough stage, you’re only a few steps away being the next conservative hero. Because at the end of the day, these people don’t stand for anything. They claim they’re all about Christian values, but that’s negated when they throw their support behind adulterers and sexual predators. It’s just millions of people who are distracted by talking points, an American flag, a gun and the Bible. And when it’s all said and done, they’re really nothing more than cheerleaders for anyone who can get on a stage and preach hate, ignorance and intolerance.
