Pro-life leaderís home vandalized in wake of Newsweek article

Warning: Vulgarity ahead.

I wrote last week that a Newsweek article favorable to the personhood movement and personhood leaders Keith and Jennifer Mason had “riled abortion proponents.” Little did I know how much.

Someone posted Mason’s home address in a comment to the Newsweek article. Newsweek closed down comments, but it was too late. At 1:30a on June 27, Mason “was in the basement, catching a movie and having a beer, to just chill,” according to a follow-up Newsweek piece, when he heard a loud noise:

“[I] thought one of our kids had fallen down the stairs.” Mason says he ran upstairs from the basement, then “ran through a bunch of glass” and “saw red.” He describes the scene as “surreal – I didn’t know if it was blood on the glass or what. It turned out to be spray paint. There was red paint all over the side of our house. They spray-painted coat-hangers all over my sidewalk and door. We called 911. The police were there within three minutes.”

Mason and his family immediately left their home and are now staying at an undisclosed location. Mason didn’t go public with the attack until July 2, after he had ensured the safety of his family.

Now, according to Mason in an email to me, he has “hired security, been forced to move, and are getting further daily threats.” And not a lot of sympathy. A sample of both in the (now closed) comments section of the follow-up Newsweek post:

Whether this is deemed a terrorist attack or hate crime will be up to the FBI, which is now involved.

Tolerance, inclusions and diversity for all...

Unless we don’t agree with you.

The hypocrisy of the left.

This illustrates why we continue to need anonymous posting on the net. Many large publictaions require local identifying info to register.

I always assume that knowing more about me personally can only hurt, never help.

He could have been putting rounds downrange within seconds.

We are in the early stages of the coming social war. People are now taking direct action against those with whom they differ.

Perhaps women who have had abortions should lose their right to vote...I believe murderers are denied the right to vote in most states. That would be devastating to the dems...

It is best to think tactically with these kind of people, because they have a terrible habit of following the same m.o., which means that they can walk into a trap.

Now, if you are a nice guy, the trap can lead to their arrest. However, depending where you live, you may not be obligated to be a nice guy. Number 9 birdshot to the buttocks is a memorable, perhaps life-changing experience.

That can be a deadly mistake for those armed with spray paint and bricks

I am convinced that the staff at newsweek wasn't too disappointed that the address 'slipped out'.

Agreed. Sue them for everything you can get.

“I believe murderers are denied the right to vote in most states.”

The problem there is that in a court of law the woman did not kill the baby the doctor did. Legally the woman is only an accomplice to the murder. Although one could argue that she hired the doctor to be a “hit man” to “take out” her fetus or embryo. Even then she would only be an accomplice to murder but that crime still carries a high jail term.

Wouldn’t ‘accessory’ still be classified as a felony?

Yes, there have been TWO attacks in Colorado:

Personhood founder’s home attacked at night, children terrorized

69-year-old pro-life Personhood petitioner attacked, suffers broken hip

Thank you...I was very interested to learn what state would harbor such ‘vicious, satan-serving bastards’...I was expected a state with a bit more of a ‘blue tint’. Colorado? Wow.
