Republican Terrorists

Looks like Obama isn’t the only one who “pals around with terrorists”. Unlike Obama, Republican extremists running for president gloat about being supported by terrorists.

Cruz touted an endorsement from Troy Newman, president of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, who stated, “the United States government has abrogated its responsibility to properly deal with the blood-guilty. This responsibility rightly involves executing convicted murderers, including abortionists, for their crimes in order to expunge bloodguilt from the land and people.”

 In 1988, Cheryl Sullenger, now Operation Rescue's vice president, was convicted along with her husband for their part in a failed plot to blow up an abortion clinic.

Cruz and Huckabee attended a conference hosted by pastor Kevin Swanson. “Tiller killed 60,000 babies, so that’s 60,000 dead babies and one dead abortionist," Swanson said on his radio show. "So, let’s just say, the abortionists are still ahead on this one…People tend to get their comupance [sic], and that’s precisely what happened to Tiller the Killer."

Thank Bill O'Reilly for that little Fatwa meme.

 "I say, tonight, we punish Planned Parenthood. I think it’s time that abortion doctors should have to run and hide and be afraid for their life." Christian evangelist and former pastor Joshua Feuerstein, the man known for his insane video that accused Starbucks of "hating Jesus" by removing winter icons, like snowflakes and ice skaters from red winter coffee cups.

How many more of these evil extremists are out there?

There’s your American Taliban, and American ISIS, American Jihadists calling for the deaths of fellow Americans who break no laws. Fatwas in America? IOKIYAR, after all.

This is the dark face of evil and terror in Right Wing American Christianity.

What does this Right Wing terrorism look like from their victims’ perspective, or at least the ones still alive?

How Radical Right Wing Christian terrorism works:

Bryn Greenwood, a woman who worked at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas has posted a list of all the different ways she and her coworkers were terrorized by Christian Extremists during the 3 years she worked there explains.

I worked at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas for 3 years. My coworkers & I were subjected to the following acts of terrorism:

Gasoline was poured under our back door & ignited 4 times. Twice while the clinic was occupied, causing patients to be evacuated.

Butyric acid (used as a stink bomb) was poured under our doors & into ventilation system so many times I lost count. Clinic evacuated.

We received hundreds of phone calls, threatening to torch our clinic & to kill the "murdering whores" who worked there.

3 times someone drove by at night & shot out our windows. Picketers stood on the sidewalk & harassed employees as we swept up broken glass.

Our clinic didn't perform abortions. We did well woman exams, pregnancy tests, dispensed birth control, & treated STIs.

Our clinic offered free & low cost services in a low income neighborhood, but every day the "pro-life" movement tried to frighten us.

The goal was to make us afraid to come to work, to make us quit, to make us close the clinic. That's terrorism. That's how terrorism works.


And her facility didn’t even provide abortions…

Terrorism is alive and well in America. Right-wing groups and individuals are able to permeate society and kill and maim at will. When the largest purveyor of state-sponsored terrorism in the world hides behind the facade of the U.S. government, is it any wonder?

Blame Obama, the black guy.

Chuck Morre: "Blame Obama, the black guy."

This was going on long before "the black guy", as you put it. I prefer to blame the corporatists. They permeate government, and reserve no party affinity.

Until you figure this out, and accept it, you'll always be chasing illusions.

Dave, do you realize it has been close to a year since you've had any of the silly meanderings posted by the illegitimate wonder child of the Tea Party ilk, Free0352?

Was it because you (or I?) rubbed his nose in his own stupidity about the latest terror flavor of the day, ISIS (or ISIL, or whatever it's called)?

Gee, I sure miss his raving lunacy... [wink]

Ah, my favorite "clear thinking" authoritarian personality. I hope he's healthy and opening his mind to the world... Yeah, like the latter is possible. LOL

Last I recall Free disappeared after I conveyed, "Thank your fearless decider Bush for creating [ISIL] with his crusade in Iraq. ISIL is full of Sunni Iraqi military, fired by Bush's stooge."

For an atheist, he had a lot of unquestioned beliefs. All coincidentally aligning perfectly with the Koch agenda, of course.

He's probably got a job being the private security muscle behind some wealthy person or corporation.

I was reminded of him reading this line from the former Military Police investigator in the film Jack Reacher:

“There are four types of people who join the military. For some, it's family trade. Others are patriots, eager to serve. Next you have those who just need a job. Then there's the kind who want a legal means of killing other people.”

Although I think his father was a Marine, I’m sure if Free had the ability and intelligence, he would be a Blackwater type thug all the way. This would put him squarely in the last type who join the military.

Yes, definitely a thug. He's a very dangerous man.
