First off, let’s call it what it was: a terrorist attack.
I’m talking about that shooting last week at the Planned Parenthood on Colorado where Robert Dear went on a rampage and murdered three people and wounded nine others. Terrorism; by, as I said on Twitter, spurring the ire of some rightwingnuts, a Christian extremist. And then I received even more angry Tweets when I said the GOP wasn’t commenting because a Christian with a gun shooting up a Planned Parenthood was “their base.”
Because it is; when you are the party that calls Christianity the only real religion — and ask that only Christian Syrian refugees be allowed entrance to this melting Pot called America — and when you are in the back pocket of the NRA and have almost never condemned any shooting spree in this country and when you spout lie about Planned Parenthood — and I’m looking at you Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee — then that man, Robert Dear, is your base.
So, what to do what to do; well, Carly and the Huckster immediately set about saying their lies about Planned Parenthood selling ‘baby parts’ for profit was not in any way responsible for the attack … even though Dear shouted that message as he was killing innocent people.
But it’s Republican loon Ted Cruz, who I am sure readied his thoughts on the matter while sitting in a bunker with an aluminum foil hat upon his head because he says, and I kid you not, that Robert Dear wasn’t a rightwingnut Christian Republican gun nut, but a … wait for it … it’s rich … but a leftist transgender female.
Uh huh. So, it’s the left and the transgender community to blame for this.
‘It’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and transgendered leftist activist, if that’s what he is. We know that he was a man who was registered to vote as a woman. The media promptly wants to blame him on the pro-life movement when at this point there is very little evidence to suggest that.’
But hey, when you’re Ted Cruz and a member of your base has gone off and started killing people, you might sit in your bunker and kinda gleefully smile, but you’ll step outside and immediately begin lying and pandering and mislabeling the truth.
Robert Dear was a Christian extremist with access to guns and a mind fed lies about Planned Parenthood. In other words, he was the GOP base, which is why they will say nothing, next to nothing, or just outright lie about what happened last week in yet another act of homegrown terrorism.
