  •  There was no such response... (6+ / 0-)

    ...after the Atlanta Olympic bombing, or any of the other acts of anti-choice terrorism in recent American history. Not sure why it would be different this time around.

    •  The Olympic bombing's purpose... (10+ / 0-)

      ...wasn't understood at the time, and the response was certainly massive enough to railroad a totally innocent person!

        Now that I think about it, there are a few other factors that made the reaction different from what it might have been in the Bush years... such as the fact that it was pre-9/11, and the President of the United States at the time was a reasonable and decent human being, not the puppet of a neoconservative movement bent on world domination and financial gain who would succeed him.

        Even still, I don't think the government response against fundamentalist and dominionist Christians would be nearly as fierce as its response against the terrorist strains of fundamentalist Islam after 9/11, if for no other reason than that there are a hell of a lot more right-wing Christians going to the voting booths every other year.

        •  What's so very ironic (6+ / 0-)

          is that the fire breathing of this guy and that whack job police chief in Gooberstown, PA sounds FAR more like the Horst Wessel Song than anything ever said by the people they compare to the Nazis.  Hitler would go apoplectic if he heard such a comparison.  Even more sickening is how Lane et al throw around Holocaust references when a significant number of them deny it ever happened.

          I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

          that the Right Wing Noise Machine would be going 24/7 explaining why it was justified, it was provoked, etc.
