‘You’re lucky I didn’t have my pistol’: Video shows pro-lifers violently attacked outside clinic
http://www.lifesitenews.com ^ | december 20, 2013 | ben johnson

A shocking new video shows a muscular young man punching a pro-life protester in the face before chasing, pushing, and threatening to shoot a group of pro-life activists standing outside an Oklahoma abortion facility on Tuesday.

-snip

Toby Harmon says he and his friend, Jeremy Brown, approached a young couple just leaving Dr. Larry Burns'Abortion Surgery Center in Norman, Oklahoma, and asked if they could help. “She replied something like, 'You can't help us. There's nothing you can do to help us,'” Harmon says.

Then, the says, he young man removed his jacket and came toward them in a menacing fashion.

The second video shows a a young, bearded man shove Brown before punching him in the face.

“There's forgiveness in Christ,” Brown replied, literally turning the other cheek.

Video footage shows the young man follow the 36-year-old Harmon at this point, repeatedly grabbing his video camera, as well as spitting on their signs. As the camera is blocked during a struggle, Harmon comments that a noise in the video is the sound of the man spitting on him, as well.

Harmon says the man threw his first chest-mounted camera to the ground and destroyed it, and the original video file of the incident was corrupted beyond repair. His goal, Harmon said, was to destroy the evidence of the altercation. However, Harmon had a second video camera, which he used to capture the video posted to YouTube.

As Harmon struggled with the man, Brown called the police. The Norman Police Department's call log shows the alleged “assault and battery,” as well as “assault and vandalism” took place at 9:13 a.m.

“Right now, he is following us, and we are literally fleeing from him,” Jeremy tells an operator, saying the man ha followed them 50 yards away from the center at that point.

If I ever go to on of these clinics,I’ll take one of my German Shepherds or the Rottweiler with me.The dogs have an amazing calming effect on punks like these.

The dark forces which oppose civilization are really waking up. It’s not just the knockout game. It’s not just this incident. It’s everything. The day approaches when the Left will go full gotterdammerung and unleash open violence against all opponents, without apology or excuse.

Just think of all the millions of future liberal boys playing Grand Theft Auto today. Those are the people who will have no problem killing Christians in the future. I used to wonder how Germany allowed Hitler. Used to....

I used to wonder about Germany and Hitler, too. Then remembered the Brownshirts. I used to wonder about Reconstruction after the Civil War and the carpetbaggers. History, when you get a glimpse of the Evil in human hearts, all makes sense. Not talking about logic here, but about Origianl Sin. It is not heaven down here.

They had best think about what they wish for. Especially in OK.

Some of the most earthy honest people in the world. And some of them are armed to the teeth. You are told “Don’t mess with Texas” but OK is NO DIFFERENT.

Some of my ancestors were literally burned out of AL during Reconstruction for resisting. The father disappeared in AR, the wife and children went GTT (gone to Texas). History does not record much of this, but it happened. And it is still oral tradition in many places in TX. Whole communities moved then because of it.

Then Jesus’ admonition to ‘buy a sword’ may well be in vogue? Revelation talks about a time when if a person kills some one then that person will also be killed...Others may know if it refers to a offence defence type of scenario. One may not simply kill but is allowed to defend one self...?

Any comments anyone?

Texas and Oklahoma combined would make a great new economic/political cluster nation for others to join after the fall of the U.S. in its present form!

“There's forgiveness in Christ,”

Amen. And there's repentence when I draw my .357 mag. That passage doesn't mean be a punching bag for anyone. The one with that drew the hunting knife would've been the first to get plugged.

Put aside football, TX and OK are very close. (I am not a sports fan) I lived in OK for 7 years and loved the state and the people.

Both states have oilies, farmers, builders and few complaining leeches. (except in cities)

God Bless Texas, God Bless Oklahoma.

God Bless the United States of America.

A pox on those who seek to destroy any of the above.

“You’re lucky I didn’t have my pistol.”
At that point I’d draw mine and ask,”Does it like anything like this one?”

I do too. Thats the one part of the article that bothered me. The lack of a mention of this guy being arrested and charged. Im hoping I will hear of this in the future.

The left has gone totally insane

There are many, many of them, including a good portion of elected Democrats, who would line people like us up in front of a firing squad if they only held enough power.

And they go about gaining more power each and every day.

Based on the way he just went loco, I would bet that this is not his first violent encounter, and he probably has a record. If that includes a felony, and he talks about his pistol, he might be in line for more that an assault charge. Whether he does or not, it is pretty obvious that he is one of those who really, really should not be allowed near a gun.

I see no Biblical rule that self-defense is automatically wrong (sorry, pacifists.) Also, if it’s un-Christian to defend oneself, then it’s also un-Christian to call the police to do indirectly what we are supposedly not allowed to do directly.

Yeah, and a can of pepper spray, or better yet an HK (hey, that rhymes) has an amazing calming effect on even the rowdiest pooch. See, folks, this is why people should mind their own business. Saves people from all sorts of grief.

If they’re getting that close I’d like to use something less lethal , a taser ,, when he’s rolling on the ground after soiling himself you restrain him with extra large cable ties and secure the video for when the police arrive.

A Missionary might get injured for preaching the gospel and he doesn’t fight back as a testimony...I can understand that. Does he let his child be mishandled as a way of ‘turning the other cheek’? Which is why most MK’s aren’t with the parents in really dangerous areas. You’d defend your little ones even to the death. If I saw a old widow being knocked down at an abortion rally, I would interpose and defend her. if they punched me, I might not respond in kind...at first. Yet one has so many cheeks....!

On a real random note...If Christians want to try and stay in San Francisco and other liberal cities in California and evangelize it...fine..but they should send their kids away. None of this “we must send our Christian kids to help evangelize schools and playgrounds crap” California has passed laws that sexualize kids via the school systems and thus they have tied a mill stone around their necks. It has become too dangerous a state for Christian families. The whole nation is going that way but California is hitting its nadir point much faster!

I agree, re children. I have seen people say they want their children in government indoctrination centers to be “salt & light” , but that’s ridiculous IMO not to mention I wonder how often it’s just a cop-out. Their children won’t be allowed to be “salt and light” even if they had the adult maturity and strength to stand against teachers and peer pressure, they’re more likely to come home opposing everything their parents were in the process of teaching them. Christian adults these days aren’t exactly standing firm in the lion’s den-too many think it’s a real sacrifice to stop patronising restaurants which support what we oppose, or even give up a teevee show.

If you listen to your ‘enemy’ they’ll tell you all about their plans. The left NEVER had a problem w/ guns or using them on who they choose. Their problem w/ guns is that you can have them. If they’re ever allowed to outlaw gun ownership for the general populace genocide won’t be far behind. They’ll have no problem using deadly force on whoever they deem unworthy to live. The evidence is here for anyone willing to listen...and it CAN happen here.
