Of course, this is not the first time it’s happened. Abortion has been a heated topic in American politics for years, and people have been killed at abortion clinics before.
This is maybe the 1st time it’s been tied so directly to a political race. To review: there was a video, which made the claim that Planned Parenthood sold body parts of fetuses for profit.
The whole video was debunked as a fraud and a badly edited hit piece, but not before several Republican contenders for President had cited it, and praised it.
The, Robert Dear goes into a Planned Parenthood clinic, shoots a whole bunch of people and kills 3. He says to the police “No more body parts,” as if that was actually a thing, and as if Colorado Springs had the only abortion clinic in the country, and as if they were going to stop doing whatever they were doing.
Robert Dear is probably not the smartest guy in the world. You can actually tell that, just by looking at his picture. Also, by his arrested record. Hiding in his neighbors bushes and staring at her, abuse of animals, some other weird shit.
But, he could buy a gun.
So, this shooting proves two things. A) The Republicans should maybe shut the fuck up about abortion. B) Maybe they should shut the fuck up about guns, too.
The weird thing is, they don’t see it that way. Huckabee implies that it’s a left wing plot to make right-wingers look bad. Carly Fiorina repeats the body parts bullshit.
One lady on my facebook page thinks it had nothing to do with Planned Parenthood, it’s just that Dear is a pot smoking sex pervert.
I do not know what to say.
