The most recent lone wolf to attack a Planned Parenthood, killing three and wounding nine others, appeared in court in Colorado on Wednesday to face murder charges, and yeah, Robert L. Dear is pretty proud of hisself:
I am guilty there will be no trial. I am a warrior for the babies. […] You’ll never know the amount of blood I saw in that place.
Reports in the media have stated Dear considered himself a devout Christian, with a long history of being pro-life, including an earlier attack on Planned Parenthood, but that was just with glue guns instead of the deadly kind.
We don’t know yet whether Dear was radicalized by some of America’s extreme “pro-life” organizations and leaders, or whether he radicalized himself with “pro-life” material on the internet, Fox News, and out of the facehole of every “pro-life” politician running for president or serving in Congress.
Federal authorities have in no way suggested, for example, that Dear ever had contact with Operation Rescue, one of the nation’s most preeminent “pro-life” organizations, but it would be irresponsible not to speculate, wouldn’t it? Operation Rescue President Troy Newman has previously supported murdering abortion providers. Cheryl Sullenger, senior vice president, served time in federal prison for plotting to bomb an abortion clinic and later provided information about Dr. George Tiller to his pro-life assassin, Scott Roeder.
While some argue it’s too soon to panic, or we ought not paint all pro-lifers with a broad brush, it hardly seems too much to ask that Congress, our governors, and the president of the United States immediately act to ensure that there are no pro-lifers within our borders, for the security of our American citizens.
