So, no group supports abortion clinic bombings ideologically?
Ever heard of an organization named Army of God? Click the last two photos in the set to view the pages listing Scott Roeder as an “American Hero” and murderers, arsonists, and bombers as “Heroes of the Faith.”
Really, stop trying to bend over backwards to exclude anti-choice terrorists as TERRORISTS. What do you call a man like Clay Waagner, who mailed over 200+ threatening letters, supposedly containing anthrax, to Planned Parenthood clinic? What, is he just a prankster?
This lone wolf bullshit needs to stop. Christians bombing abortion clinics in the name of God are terrorists. Muslims who commit bombing in the name of Allah — same thing. The biggest difference is that every time an incident of terrorism motivated by extremist anti-choice ideology takes place, Christian pro-life groups aren’t forced to launch a media blitz to clarify that the terrorist does not represent Christians.
Muslims do not get the same courtesy in the U.S. If an act of terrorism is even speculated to be committed by a Muslim, the media immediately demands Muslim-Americans roundly condemn the attacks and explain how that person is not a Muslim — this, of course, operates under the Islamophobic notion that EVERY MUSLIM EVERYWHERE supports the terrorist acts of the very, very few.
Scott Roeder, Army of God? Eh, lone wolf, not a real Christian, etc.
Just stop. This is not a hypothesis you can defend and still be a decent goddamn human being.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the “lone wolf” hypothesis personified.
Just let me point out the cognitive gymnastics Kirsten Powers is performing here: A Muslim man is not necessarily a terrorist, but could be; however, an abortion clinic bomber is never a terrorist because that person is crazy and is totally and 100% not representative of the pro-life movement.
So… just like the miniscule minority of Muslims who commit terrorism are not representative of the overwhelming peaceful majority who follow the teachings of Islam?
Just so we’re clear, domestic terrorism motivated by radical anti-choice ideology is just that — terrorism.
I just can’t…
This is not a parody account.
I’m just going to deal with a logical fallacy here — a weapon is no longer secret once you tweet it could be a secret weapon.
And one might think the GOP might view Black people as more than just votes to be used as a weapon. One might think that. But one would also be very, very wrong. Not unless this is the red and the black Fox Nation is talking about:
I checked. Nope. From the story:
Republicans need not win the black vote, or even a third of it. Securing 15 percent of the black electorate severely erodes the stalwart-Democrat base.
Here’s a hint: Stop supporting laws that force 102-year-old Desiline Victor to wait in line for several hours to vote and you just might have a fighting chance. Oh, and probably stop saying and doing racist shit every chance y’all get.
You know the GOP’s in trouble when 15% is the target. Of course, that’s nearly double what Mitt Romney received in 2012, so perhaps 15% is optimistic.
So how’s that bigoty, WASPy Southern Strategy thingy workin’ out for ya? Probably about as well as it did the year some of my readers were born. Just for funsies, let’s do the time warp again!
"In a number of ways, the Republican Party has sought to make this the year it would break the Democratic hammerlock on the votes of black Americans.
Starting with the windfall of Gen. Colin L. Powell’s announcement of Republican affiliation, and continuing with Bob Dole’s choice of Jack Kemp as his running mate, party officials allowed themselves to hope that their Presidential ticket might pull 15 percent or 16 percent of the black vote this year, up from 11 percent for George Bush in 1992. In the euphoria of the San Diego convention, one top campaign official set the target at 20 percent.
But there is no sign the Republicans are actually gaining; in the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, in fact, they are doing worse than in 1992. Only 3 percent of the black respondents in the survey, completed early this month, said they intended to vote for the Dole-Kemp ticket, and only 7 percent said they would vote for the Republican House candidate in their district.” — “G.O.P. Tries Hard to Win Black Votes, but Recent History Works Against It,” The New York Times, Sept. 19, 1996
Aim low, fellas.
Fox News Radio’s Todd Starnes and American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios displaying a jaw-dropping lack of awareness when discussing marriage equality.
I nearly choked on my goddamn coffee when I heard this fuckery come out of their mouths. Let’s just hit the basic point: EVERY bill passed for marriage equality has a religious exemption. Period.
And clergy have every right to refuse to marry anyone. Don’t believe me? Go to a Catholic priest, demand he marry you and your significant other on the spot, and mention that neither of you is Catholic, but he just HAS to do it. Hint: He won’t.
P.S. — If you want to uphold “traditional, Biblical” definitions of marriage and think it’s one man and one woman, you clearly didn’t read that book closely.
I just can’t with some people…
Sorry to go all sciencey on you there, I know you hate that kind of thing.
Somewhere, Sean Hannity is listening to Aerosmith and screaming at an intern, “GET BRUCE WILLIS IN MY STUDIO NOW!”
…said no one but Fox Nation.
NO! THAT’S A BAD AP! BAD FOX NEWS! *WHACK*
Dick Cheney is NOT a Wyoming native. Richard “Dick” Bruce Cheney was born January 30, 1941 in Lincoln, Nebraska. NEBRASKA DAMMIT!
Speaking of which, you cornhuskers are decades overdue in collecting your trash. Claim him as your native son, or we’ll build an aircraft carrier and turn it eastward.
