Dr. Hern : There is no middle-ground with people who want to kill you. The Only Difference between the American Anti-Abortion Movement and the Taliban - is about 8000 Miles.
In following up on the Tiller Assassination story I realized that elements seemed familiar. Less than a week or so ago, before the shooting I had seen one of those late night crime stories about a middle-aged woman who had been put on trial for shooting a doctor.
The story focused not so much on her crime, which didn't kill the doctor in question but merely injured him or her claims in court that her lousy aim should be considered a mitigating faster, instead the piece focused on her connections to an underground network of rabid anti-abortionists. Including Paul Hill who had shot and killed a clinic physician and his escort with a shotgun in Pensacola Florida.
She had written to Paul, and to other incarcerated anti-abortion killers such as Michael Griffin. Through them she had gained encouragement, and even direction - but the prosecutors were frustrated in proving conspiracy charges.
Here's a sample tribute video I found to Paul Hill.<div>
I had forgotten about the report, then after the the Tiller shooting I started to wonder and decided to look up the name of the person mentioned by Rachel Maddow as having previously shot Dr. Tiller in both arms - that person was Shelly Shannon - the same person from the report I'd seen last week - and what I immediately found was this...

Who Can't Even Get the Fire Started in Her Fireplace

*Please re-type or photocopy this and burn the copy you were given, with the fingerprints thereof. Thanks.
What followed was quite literally a how to/confession of a Terrorist Act, the fire-bombing of on a Women's Clinic. It's almost comically inept and pathetic - but still in many ways that only makes it's deadliness even more serious. Murder and Arson for Dummy Grandma's! Estelle Getty with suicide bomb strapped on. Silly, but still Deadly.
"Photocopy this then burn the pages" -- it's almost like something from "Get Smart" with the Cone of Silence. Shelley Shannon Super-Sleuth. Not exactly. James Bond and AQ Khan she ain't. Hence the Prison! Heaven help us if someone whose actually seen an entire season of any version of CSI or Criminal Minds gets hooked up with these dullards.
I found another shock/irony when I read the tagline, because as far as I know Shelley Shannon is serving prison time until 2018 for her attack on Dr. Tiller and a set of subsequence fires and her Muy Talibanish acid attacks.

Do people in prison get email? Also - uh- "Rev. Donald Spitz"?
Again, something strangely familiar. Several weeks ago I wrote a post about the the Knoxville Tennesee Gunman who killed two people and injured fived in a gun attack on a Unitarian Church who was "Trying to Kill Liberals".
I got a response on my personal blog - It was from a Rev. Donald Spitz. He said...
Don't tell me about Eric Rudolph. At least he stopped the babykilling abortionist from murdering any more children. What have you done to stopped these babies from being murdered?
How many straight children have been molested and murdered by homosexuals like you? A lot. How many Christians have been assaulted by homosexuals like you because you didn't like the way they voted? A lot. How many Christian churches have been burned down by homosexuals like you because you disagree with the Holy Bible? A lot. Matthew Shepard is in eternal hell fire now and will never get out.
Whatever you think, you will not be able to change God's Word and will one day have to pay the price for not believing what God has written.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
When I clicked on his name it showed this... (NSFW)
Sweet guy. At the time I blew it off, there are plenty of nuts and fruits on the net. No biggie.
I'm not blowing it off anymore. This is like having Ramzi Yousef leave a Firepie on your front porch.
His blog - http://stopbabykillingabortionist.bl... has only three posts, and they're about as smart and coherent as the one he left on my blog praising Eric Rudolph and calling me Gay (which I'm not, particularly after 17 years of nice simple Opposite Marriage).
By the way, go back to that Paul Hill Tribute Video, notice anything... like "by RevSpitz"?
DING! DING! DING!
Yet another Super-sleuth.
As it turns our Rev Spitz runs the entire Army of God website which features include the Official "Authorized" Websites for Paul Hill, Eric Rudolph and several other Anti-Abortion
Heroes Murderous zealots as well as references to an Army of God Manual for Anti-Abortion "Warriors" - think of it as an Anarchist Cookbook for Christian Wing-nut Terrorists Dumbasses - a copy of which was first found in the possession of Shelley Shannon during her apprehension for the previous shooting of Dr. Tiller. It's like - "Need proof I'm a potential mass-murder - here's my instruction manual with nice neat little hand-written notes in the margins, take me away!".
The sites current headline that says..
George Tiller will never murder another child again.
Abortionist George Tiller, now in eternal hell fire for shedding the blood of innocent children
Ok, so I get what The Donald has to say... but what do others say about him? Others like say, the Southern Poverty Law Center?
The Rev. Donald Spitz has never been a pleasant man. Considered a wild-eyed extremist even among his colleagues on the radical anti-abortion scene, the head of Pro-Life Virginia and long-time principal of the Army of God Web site (www.armyofgod.com) applauds the murderers of physicians, clinic workers and secretaries.
He rails against "filthy faggots" and "lesbos." Islam is "Satanic," Arabs are "Rag-Heads," and Muslims "should not be allowed to live in the United States." New York City is a "sex perverted cesspool" that richly deserved Sept. 11.
But there is one type of vicious group hatred Don Spitz has always denied — the "false accusations of racism" against blacks "put out by desperate babykilling abortionists." If a black man accepts Christ, "then that man is my brother."
Well, maybe. And maybe not.
Yeah, on top of everything else, the Christo-Fascism, the homophobia and being a signatory on a "defensive action statement" declaring the murder of abortionist as "justifiable" - Good Ole' RevSpitz is a White Supremacist. Lovely.
We do have a American Taliban, and they aren't hiding very far from the surface. Not at all. And if I was member of the Joint Counter Terrorist Task Force, I think I know where to direct a little NSA Surveillance or at least y'know - a WARRANT - since he and 30 others signed a open DEATH THREAT ON HIS FELLOW AMERICAN CITIZENS.
"We, the undersigned, declare the justice of taking all godly action necessary to defend innocent human life including the use of force. We proclaim that whatever force is legitimate to defend the life of a born child is legitimate to defend the life of an unborn child. We assert that if Michael Griffin did in fact kill David Gunn, his use of lethal force was justifiable provided it was carried out for the purpose of defending the lives of unborn children. Therefore, he ought to be acquitted of the charges against him."* Kenneth Arndt, Windham, N.H.

I'm just saying... when people openly declare they support the commission of a capital offense, maybe we should be listening to them, maybe we should let them Know we're listening them, and that they will be held accountable for their actions.
P.S. His site sucks. ugly colors, bad design, shitty fonts, cheesy graphics, stupid ideas. (I had to completely re-work it just so that it would even post here because of all the trash in the code.) Like something a 12-year-old in a 50-year-old body would make. Perfectly Fitting.
