Right-wing commentator Greg Gutfeld has joined the party of people smearing the assassinated Dr. George Tiller. Dr. Tiller, who performed LEGAL procedures, was gunned down in church by a low-life anti-abortion domestic terrorist. It seems as though those extremists on the right wing are only concerned about domestic terrorism when it involves a Muslim.
Here is an excerpt from a blog written by Gutfeld:
So, as usual this morning, I’m on the stairclimber at the gym, watching CNN devote what seems like an entire morning on the death of George Tiller (no wonder their ratings are in the toilet). Remember, this isn’t just any abortion doctor – he’s like a hall-of-famer, late-term baby disposal unit – popping them off just as they cross the finish line.
But no matter, as I watch CNN’s in depth coverage – the kind you’d never see them give to the murder of a soldier by a Muslim convert – I kept obsessing over one thing.
Am I wrong for not caring?
I mean, I know that soon there will be a movie about Tiller (not about William Long, of course), probably starring walking hairpiece Ted Danson. But I still don’t care. I mean, I know that killing Tiller is wrong. It’s murder. And if you’re against the killing of unborn children, you can’t just go out and kill a man, even if he kills unborn children.
But that still doesn’t explain why I don’t care. And I’m willing to bet that the rest of America – save the media – don’t care much either.
Why is that? It’s not about Tiller’s murder being wrong. I get that. That’s not the issue. This issue is, when you make priorities of “stuff that’s wrong” – is it more wrong to kill a dumpster full of viable babies, than to kill the doc who fills that dumpster?
Yes, you are wrong for not caring about a man’s murder and the domestic terrorism that has, for so long, been intimately associated with the anti-abortion movement. Gutfeld may have the same research team that helped Bill O’Reilly lie about CNN’s coverage of the murder of Pvt. Long. O’Reilly was exposed as being dishonest about CNN’s in-depth coverage. Strangely enough, Gutfeld does actually make a good point: “And if you’re against the killing of unborn children, you can’t just go out and kill a man, even if he kills unborn children.” On the other hand, Gutfeld returns to right-wing extremism by the end. That is sad.
Here is another Gutfeld comment I found interesting (in the last paragraph of the above excerpt):
This issue is, when you make priorities of “stuff that’s wrong” – is it more wrong to kill a dumpster full of viable babies, than to kill the doc who fills that dumpster?
Whether you like it or not, abortion is a LEGAL procedure. MURDERING A HUMAN BEING IS ILLEGAL.
