The media will use this to attack pro lifers, no matter what the motive for the shooting was. The media will be joined by 0’s administration, and by a Congress that is just aching to pass more anti gun legislation. All pro lifers will be painted as terrorists waiting to strike.
Those who stand up to use the to attack the pro-life movement better be careful who and what they defend in the process.
Yes, unfortunately, that is exactly what is likely going to happen now.
Aside from the media/government response, though, your post brings up an interesting question - if this guy was, in fact, motivated by anti-abortion beliefs (I hesitate to use the term "pro-life" to describe a murderer, whatever his motivation), can this murderer fairly be called a terrorist? Under the definition of terrorism under Federal law (" activities that involve violent or life-threatening acts that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State and appear to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping ."), think he just might be (I guess it would depend on whether this act was motivated by vengeance for Tiller's previous act, or by a desire to intimidate other abortionists/abortion-supporters).
Just a thought...
Without elaborating, Stolz said investigators will be looking into the Internet comments because the discussion could bear on public safety.
