The Justice Department has made it known that Scott Roeder wasn't a lone nut and is determined to find out who else helped plan the murder of George Tiller. And OneNewsNow isn't the least bit happy about it. In an "interview" with Wendy Wright of Concerned Women for America, OneNewsNow suggests that there's something sinister about the government actually doing its job.
"This may be more of a nefarious effort than it appears on its face," she exclaims, "that in fact, the Department of Justice may be trying to smear pro-lifers, as if we all belong in the same camp, as if we all advocate violence, when it's [actually] just the opposite."
Helloooo, McFly! So even when Roeder proclaims that we can expect more shootings as long as abortion is legal, a full investigation of the Tiller murder is a "smear"? But then again, that doesn't entirely surprise me. I know from experience that fundies seem to feed off the persecution complex.
Wright then claims that Holder should devote as many resources to protecting military recruiting facilities as he apparently intends to devote to this investigation. There's a difference here, Wendy. You've got mainstream pro-life leaders issuing veiled calls for violence against abortion providers (see Engle, Lou). Not only that, but you've also got mainstream pro-life movements having in their top leadership people who have admitted to trying to bomb abortion clinics. If there's a parallel here, I don't see it.
