Kansas Meadowlark has additional information on George Tiller's killer, Scott Roeder, who is more the paranoid unibomber type, as this snapshot of his life 13 years ago reveals:
Scott Roeder is sentenced to 16 months in state prison for parole violations following a 1996 conviction for having bomb components in his car trunk. Roeder, a sovereign citizen and tax protester, violated his parole by not filing tax returns or providing his social security number to his employer.
But a tragedy such as Tiller's murder is despicably a PR dream for pro-aborts, particularly just as we see the majority of Americans turning against them
I documented in a post yesterday, that on the very day of this man's death a Feministing blogger was considering ways to "turn this terrible tragedy into an opportunity to strengthen the pro-choice movement...."
Newsbusters has a post this morning about pro-abort sites accusing Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly, and Beck of being instigators.
Even I stand accused. A couple of (now unpublished) comments this blog has received:
-- "Rot in hell, you worthless terrorist c*** whore. The blood is on your hands, you vile b*****. You deserve to be sh** on, b*****."
-- "Which one of your followers and supporters shot and killed someone today? You and your sick tactics are not Pro Life. Congratulations. Good Luck when God Judges you. Please tell your Pro Life Whack Job Supporters to stop murdering people."
The goal is to shut us up, to further deny the First Amendment rights of law-abiding, pro-life believers to speak and act against abortion. Do not yield. The Bible says, "If you faint in a crisis, you are weak." Well, this is a crisis, and don't get weak.
Pro-lifers must stand against attempts by pro-aborts and the Obama administration to use this tragedy to take away rights of free speech, for one. Bear that in mind when reading this statement from US Attorney General Eric Holder yesterday:
I have directed the United States Marshals Service to offer protection to other appropriate people and facilities around the nation. The Department of Justice will work to bring the perpetrator of this crime to justice. As a precautionary measure, we will also take appropriate steps to help prevent any related acts of violence from occurring.
Christina Page on RH Reality Check hysterically wrote yesterday:
One can only conclude that like terrorist sleeper cells, these extremists have now been set in motion. Indeed the evidence is already there. The chatter, the threats, the hate-filled rhetoric are abundant.
Oh, please. Someone tell Christina to stop typing until she either gets a grip or gets treatment for her paranoia.
Pro-lifers, remain calm and steadfast. Choose your words carefully the next couple days. Bear in mind this man left behind a wife, 4 children, and 10 grandchildren. Pray for his soul and their comfort.
And do NOT allow the other side to put you on the defensive.
