And no, it wasn’t a Syrian refugee or a member of an ISIS cell who snuck through the Mexican border. It was a usual suspect:
The day after a gunman stormed a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, investigators were working to determine what prompted the shooting that resulted in the death of three people, including a police officer.
Police identified the shooting suspect as 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear but released no other information about him. He is accused of killing two civilians in addition to University of Colorado police officer Garrett Swasey, as well as injuring at least four other officers and five more civilians.
While the scumbag politicians and bedwetters on the right blather on about the danger of refugees and Islamic terror, they say nothing about the true terrorist threat that they not only created, but also inspire with their rhetoric of doom and their refusal to do anything about this country’s insane gun policies. The religion-inspired psychopaths on our own shores are more likely to kill you than any orphan or woman in a hijab are trying to escape from the religious nuts who are running amok in their countries.
So let’s take a look at the face of the latest practitioner of Tea Party terrorism:
And what is this terrorist responding to? (via the Washington Post):
The shooting arrives during a period of heightened scrutiny for Planned Parenthood. In July, an antiabortion group released a series of secretly filmed videos from a clinic in Denver that showed staffers discussing the extraction of fecal tissue from aborted fetuses before that tissue is sent to research facilities. The videos, which Planned Parenthood officials have claimed were heavily edited to bolster critics’ false claims, provoked a series of nationwide protests in August aimed at cutting off federal funding for the healthcare organization. Planned Parenthood officials said the protests were designed to intimidate and harass patients.
Health centers associated with Planned Parenthood have been the target of threats and violence because of the organization’s role in providing abortions and lobbying for reproductive rights. Abortion rights groups say threats against abortion providers rose sharply this summer in the wake of the undercover “sting” operation that produced the controversial videos.
At least four Planned Parenthood clinics have been targeted with arson since the videos were released. The increase in threats has led abortion rights groups to increase cooperation with local police and the FBI.
So, the instigators on the right doctor videos to inspire a terrorist act. And, surprise, a terrorist acts.
