Since the murderer who shot up the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado screamed “No More Baby Parts,” asking what he heard, or read, that motivated him?
Over the course of the past few days, I’ve replayed in my head Carly Fiorina’s vile statement about Planned Parenthood at a Republican debate at least 50 times. And I keep thinking she effectively committed murder.
At least one person agrees with me. In Blood on Republican Hands: Killer Screamed “No More Baby Parts” at Planned Parenthood, Colin Taylor reviews the remarks of Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Fiorina that could have motivated the murderer. I couldn’t agree more with his concluding remarks:
Why won’t moderate Christians denounce this terrible attack? Why aren’t we collecting databases on alienated white men who own machine guns? Their hypocrisy is absolutely disgusting, and now the blood is on all of their hands.
But especially yours, Ms. Fiorina.
Yes, Trump, Rubio and Cruz are scumbags, and their statements about Planned Parenthood were scurrilous, but, getting back to my original question, what specifically motivated the murderer, doesn’t the analysis start with: Did the murderer see Fiorina’s infamous mini-speech at the Republican debate, when she demanded that we “watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain”?
Can anyone doubt that if the Colorado Springs murderer saw Fiorina that night, or later saw the video, that’s what pushed him over the edge? If one were affirmatively trying to incite violence towards people affiliated with Planned Parenthood, could he or she have been any more effective than Fiorina?
The bottom line is we may have an accessory to murder running for President. Welcome to the “greatest country in the world.”
