Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is a psychopath. This isn't new or surprising information; she has been a psychopath for apparently her entire professional life, and she is running for president behind numerous other psychopaths who would be hard-pressed to collectively summon enough basic human decency to fill a coffee tin. But it is something that needs again to be said, because in the wake of a domestic terrorism attack against a Planned Parenthood clinic in which the terrorist apparently parroted the same "baby parts" line of reasoning that Carly Florina used to boost her fame on the campaign trail, she is behaving precisely as a psychopathic monster would be expected to behave. It's not pretty.
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina declared on "Fox News Sunday" that attempts to link anti-abortion rhetoric from Republicans to Friday’s attack on a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, Colorado, were just “typical left-wing tactics.”
“This is so typical of the left to immediately begin demonizing a messenger because they don’t agree with the message,” Fiorina said.
Several reminders, here. One, Carly Fiorina was the candidate who invented, on a debate stage, a fictitious account of an already-falsified tape; among the presidential contenders, she personally has done the most to promote and elevate the even-then-debunked charges against Planned Parenthood to cartoonish levels. She has done so by lying outright.
Two, "anti-abortion" rhetoric from prominent Republicans has centered almost entirely around the phrase "baby parts." It refers to a specific charge—harvesting "baby parts" for profit—against a specific healthcare organization—the same one attacked by a gunman last Friday. Reports that the gunman uttered "no more baby parts" after the murders cannot be construed as having any other context other than the one that has been used as thumping anti-abortion, anti-Planned-Parenthood drumbeat by Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, other Republican presidential contenders, Republican members of Congress, Republican Party officials, and others touting those specific charges specifically against Planned Parenthood as an organization.
If Carly Fiorina cannot put two and two together and acknowledge that the man murdering people at Planned Parenthood while mumbling about a Republican-pushed conspiracy theory about Planned Parenthood is indeed "linked" to that Republican-pushed conspiracy theory about Planned Parenthood, she is (1) stupid, (2) a psychopath, and (3) unequivocally unfit for public office.
Given the implausibility of her supposition that attempts to link the domestic terrorist with the rhetoric he himself used after the incident are merely a "left-wing" plot against her, we have to presume she is simply lying and knows very damn well the rhetoric and the terrorism is connected. These lies, too, are the mark of a psychopath, and we should all be very happy that Carly Fiorina's campaign is as shriveled and dead as her rotten little heart. Consider yourself free to leave the race at any time, our little monster; I assure you your campaign of unapologetic lying in service to psychopathic policy positions will continue to live on in the other candidates long after you have quit the race and scuttled off with your remaining staffers' paychecks.
