  •  Your use of the term terrorist (0+ / 0-)

    as a flamethrowing mechanism shows a disrespect of the dead.
    You immediately frame the murder in state terms (i.e. Kansas). That is an inappropriate categorization, especially with few if any details of the murder available.
    Your reference to 'the UN, black helicopters and cabals of Jewish financiers' shows that you have no shame in abusing a dead person to further a large-scale agenda (not even just tied to the issue of women's liberty.

    Those are just a few reasons.

      •  It was a complaint, not 'concern.' (0+ / 0-)

        You are being very rude, and it is not appreciated nor should it be welcome on this or any other site.

          But he is quite right in framing this murder as an act of terrorism. It was calculated to shock and committed for the purpose of frightening people into submission. Since anti-choice zealots do not--and will not--have the law on their side they resort to threats and actual violence in order to achieve their goals.

          That is terrorism.

          ...where we sit around and eat cucumber sandwiches and speak in very hushed and dignified tones so as to remain very prim and proper, you're at the wrong place.  What happened today was a political act, and it needs to be called what it is.  

          You may "complain" that I was "rude" to you, but when you come in to a thread and demand that a post be removed, offer no argument why, and when pressed come up with nothing other than it offended your delicate sensibilities, you'll get a blunt response.

      Well, too damn bad if so.

      The facts here are frakking offensive.  The truth is frakking offense.  Telling it is not.  Call it what it is: terrorism.  It was done for an ideological reason (theology is but another ideology btw) to send a message and it was but the culmination of a long, sad history of violence against this doctor intended to terrorize him into giving into that ideology's demands.  And it is after official action against him by the State of Kansas, i.e. prosecution on trumped up charges.  So, given the failure of Kansites to rise up in this man's defense after the fourth, let alone first, act of horrific, ideological violence as well as their support for that violence by legitimizing its desired result by trying to imprison him simply because they do not like that he provided a completely legal, and constitutionally protected, service (what you think the politicians didn't know where the voters bread was buttered?), yeah, its frakking Kansas' fault and everyone who lives there.

      By the way, stop calling him a 'vigilante'.  'Vigilantism' is the taking of justice into private hands.  It means the motive was to serve some higher, valid purpose.  It also conjures popular heroes - see, Robin Hood.  This was nothing but murder, plain and simple, and as 'noble' as 9-11.

      ...to you that I was right to frame this is rightwing domestic terrorism, that the suspect is tied to Operation Rescue, tax protesters and the militia movement.

      •  Post hoc justification is invalid. (0+ / 0-)

        I'm not saying that your voice is completely unwarranted. I'm saying that your statements are so callous that they reflect poorly on your character and this site.

        •  Whatever Dude (0+ / 0-)

          Sorry you so easily get the vapors.
