Planned Parenthood attack is politcal
Posing the question as to whether the attack at the Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado was political is simply a journalistic formality. Recently reported articulations by the killer should remove any questions.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The man who police say staged a deadly shooting attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic that offers abortion services said “no more baby parts” after his arrest, a law enforcement official said Saturday.
The official could not elaborate about the comment by the 57-year-old suspect, Robert Lewis Dear. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation.
Planned Parenthood said late Saturday that witnesses said the gunman was motivated by his opposition to abortion. An official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Washington Post that the attack was “definitely politically motivated.”
Police, however, have not disclosed a motive for Friday’s attack during which they say Dear stormed the Colorado Springs clinic, killing three people, including a police officer, before he surrendered to authorities.
Earlier today Congressman Hakeem Jeffries admonished politicians on the Hill as well the Right Wing in general for their complicity. Their extremist rhetoric are triggers to events like this. The gunman’s utterance is right out of Fox News and the Right Wing media complex. Right Wing media is a clear and present danger to Americans.
