Coulter: 'I Don't Think of It As a Murder'
Little Green Footballs ^ | June 22, 2009 | Little Green Footballs

Posted on 06/23/2009 6:02:57 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Even Bill O’Reilly (who has been pretty cold-blooded about the murder of Dr. George Tiller) seems a little taken aback when Ann Coulter says, “I don’t think of it as a murder ... I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don’t believe in imposing my morality on others.”

And: “If you don’t believe in shooting abortionists, don’t shoot an abortionist.” And: “That’s why liberals are so hysterical about this, because generally they’re on the pro-death side ... in this one case, they’re finally against someone dying, a man responsible for killing 60,000 babies.”

Indeed. The pantywaists at LGF that don’t get Ann’s point are idiotic.

“If you don’t believe in shooting abortionists, don’t shoot an abortionist.”

That sounds like a GREAT tag-line.

The man who killed Tiller should get whatever justice is coming to him for murder. Having said that, I don’t mourn Tiller’s passing.

She’s making a point here. A lot of Coulter says is in a rhetorical context. Her target is the idiocy of people who “mourn” Tiller the killer, but nothing is said about the 60K babies he terminated.

Turning it back on them.

LGF doesn’t get it.

Ann is just giving it back to the liberals in their own language. If abortion, the killing of innocent babies, should be a “choice,” then why shouldn’t murder be a “choice”?

If a politician can stand there and say, “I am personally opposed to abortion, but . . .” and then vote for every kind of abortion bill that comes down the pike, then why shouldn’t Ann stand there and say it.

She is just pointing out the absurdity of these liberal positions.

After all, what murder victim is more innocent than a baby?

At least she didn’t say killing abortionists should be safe, legal and rare.

She’s just twisting the pro-abortionists’ own words and arguments back on them. They do sound chilling, but because everyone has become so jaded over the years it takes a fresh use of the words and arguments to restore their jolting quality.

It’s the liberal argument that abortion is not murder or one “can’t” impose one’s morality on another person. Please. Those words are exactly their excuses and rationalizations. She’s smart to throw it all back in their faces. They’re the ones who have a problem with what is right and what is wrong.

The liberal mindset is psychotic.

Cop killers are really victims of society and should be set free.

Executing a convicted murderer is wrong.

Killing 60,000 viable human embryos is fine.

Killing babies in late term pregnancies is fine.

Letting a baby die due to lack of medical care is fine.

Making an illegal alien wait to have a non-emergency procedure, done in the Emergency Room on the taxpayer's dollar is heinous.

Murdering American contractors, cutting their bodies into pieces, hanging them from a bridge and setting fire to them is fine.

Putting terrorists into a human pyramid is torture.

I think my head is gonna explode.

I don’t approve of how she approaches this topic. Abortion is far too serious an issue to make dry jokes about. It’s like joking about the Holocaust. Really crossing the line here.

And, of course, we must take into account whether the continued existence of the abortionist is a threat to health of the shooter.

Let me be more clear, Coulter is an idiot.

Are you sure? Consider the libtard statement "If you don't believe in abortion ... then don't have an abortion". Ann merely switched the nouns around and threw their 'rationale' back in their face. Funny, when you present an argument back like that, it does sound silly.

I think she did a fine job showing the fallacy of the 'Pro-Choice' justification.

The problem is that we have had two ways to protest abortion.

1. Ghastly pictures that turn people off
2. Prayer

Up until recently, that’s it.
This is the way to do it. Start fighting back with their own words.

And the Prayer helps too. Without it, nothing works

The liberals think that every single one of those babies was on the verge of fetal death and risking the life of the mother through infection. They don’t know that most of the ones killed were relatively healthy babies with a good chance of living to old age and they simply don’t care to find out. They live in a damn fantasy land where every fact is perfectly convenient for the sake of their political agenda.

Bingo, sicvee.

It’s amazing how many otherwise bright people don’t get that she’s impaling pro-abortionists with their own tortured logic.

She’s not saying, “Tiller got we he had coming”

She’s saying, “See how stupid your reasoning for not opposing baby killing is?”

Joy told Ann that if she likes Waterboarding so much, she should be waterboarded.

Ann said, if Joy likes abortion so much, she should be aborted.
