Skip to comments.Other Far Right Response (Andrew Sullivan Mentions Free Republic Response to Tiller Murder)
Posted on 06/01/2009 11:17:53 AM PDT by nickcarraway
From the Free Republic blog commenters, courtesy of Balloon Juice:
What goes around comes around...
One less nazi as far as I am concerned.
This isn't good, boys and girls ... not good at all. This serial-killer piece of excrement will be held up by every abortionist and every lover of abortionists as the reason why the Secret Service needs to be assigned to guard every abortionist, every abortion mill and every lover of abortions in this country.

We have to excerpt it, even though, except for 10 words, it originally comes from Free Republic.
To be fair, shouldn’t they have some comments from DU types?
the canonization of this monster is already underway. if there were only 1% of the outrage toward the murder of innocent babies as this leftist’s “Saint with a Scalpel” the world would be a better place.
definitely not representative of FR or conservatives.
although, I have to admit, there is a good bit of truth to each of the excerpted comments, even if they are delivered, as it were, with the gloves off.
The attempted cannonization. It's not going to fly.
Andy just doesn’t like ‘breeders’ or breeding.
The devil is trying hard right now. Keep the faith!
Do not post commie propaganda.
Have we really made so much progress since the 12th Century? Because of our technology we've figured out how to routinely murder babies in utero, but we still murder in churches.
....and we follow this with the MAINSTREAM left’s response to the killing of all those unborn children:
Exactly. Let's have the conversation nationally about all of the gory details of how this so-called martyr of the left has made his fortune. I look forward to the argument.
The argument doesn't wash.
Nazi's mass murdered;
The man did kill innocent, defenseless human beings and in even primitives "12th century" and prior civilizations cry out for justice;
The radical left will leverage this murder to marginalize sane, normal pro-life people (the majority of Americans, incidentally.
Nothing in the excerpted comments needs to be defended. Nothing.
I didn't read the rest. I'm sure there are some zingers, but that's not reason enough to let the thug media put the Cause of Life or the majority of Americans on the defensive.
Why are you working so hard to spread this idea?
You have the same mentality as those who blamed Rush Limbaugh for the Oklahoma City bombing back in 1995.
Why are you doing their work for them?
Have I missed the outrage over the military recruiter that was just killed in AK?
And what are churches?
Churches aren't museums for Saints, they are gathering places for sinners where they should hope to hear the Gospel, the Lords word.
Not even counting the fact this guy Andrew Sullivan thinks other men’s poopers are attractive— he is the biggest, most shameless sleazeball.
There are more than just a few sickening comments left by FReepers on this topic. Unfortunately it reflects upon this website and on everyone here.
The behavior here has been absolutely disgusting, and no amount of rationalization can justify the murderer's actions or the victim's death.
I noticed he didn’t post a link to the comments.
I guess I should just assume those are all typical of the rest of the comments.
It’s so much easier that way...
nick is a troll..I’ve noticed he’s been posting daily kos crap for the last few days. I think there are several Obamabots on Fr fomenting dissension.
I’m disappointed that Sully didn’t quote me. I had some good lines. =(
>>>Have I missed the outrage over the military recruiter that was just killed in AK?<<<
Yes, you did. Zero gave a press conference denouncing the heinous crimes committed by our military, and how it was only a matter of time before someone “took things into their own hands” in their zeal to right perceived wrongs. Oh, and Medea Benjamin and StarHawk were at his side.
Eric Holder is sending the FBI to protect Nation of Islam mosques.
Film at 11:00.
But that's exactly what will happen.
I was gone for a couple of days.
Some of the comments I’ve read make me quite literally ill. I know that people are speaking freely, but at NO POINT will I ever justify, rationalize, defend or explain a murderer who went into a church (or anyplace else) and killed someone in cold blood.
I know that people are passionate about the issue of abortion, but this man was murdered. If you are going to excuse the murderer, these are scarier times that we can even concieve.
Because excusing him means you have just painted a target on everyone’s head. Any soldier returning from war might be considered by some to be a “murderer” and so, it’s excusable if they are killed. Some might consider it “justice”...we would think that kind of thought is dangerously radical...
So, how does excusing the doctor’s killer not make YOU a dangerous radical?
It is reprehensible that anyone would make any comment except that men should not be gunned down in cold blood.
I will be watching to see what develops after this taking of innocent life in Arkansas. These victims are members of our military.
Some may hate them with a passion because they disagree with the war. That is no excuse to take the law into your own hands.
We are a nation of laws. There’s a reason.
These events are always good bait for FR’s trolls, they can't help themselves.
Some here on the “right” are still super invested in Hussein, others are simply those who do not like social conservatives in the Republican party.
So they sidle up with the left to try and discredit so-cons and other rightwingers who they feel are too hard on the left.
Punch. Counterpunch. Duck. Punch.
It's a fight.
My reading of the threads indicates these kinds of postings are the rule rather than the exception.
We sure can be good at fouling our own nest.
It appears some folks are saying what they think.
The ends do not justify the means IMO (rule of law and all), but I won't pretend to not think fewer "doctors" killing unborn children is good.
I wouldn't be surprised if Andrew or some of his ilk were doing the posting! Found a newbie yesterday who joined just to post about the murder. When something like this happens, we ought to go into "watch for disruptors pretending to be freepers to make FR look bad" mode.
There are FRinos to be considered.
Did you click on the Balloon Juice link? OMG - the dregs of the internet!
You know what they say, you want it bad, you get it bad. Nothing like getting whacked in church, at least he was close to his god.
Conservatives will not be killed by liberals.
Liberals, by their very nature, require gov’t agents to do their killing for them.
It will be outside the rule of law, but it will be the government being the “trigger man”.
You are making an argument with two things that are in no way morally equivilent. Your argument that military recruiting and peforming abortions are morally equivilent is preposterous. You need to rethink this position, you insult all military people and all citizens of this country.
So you’re saying the recruiters were shot by whom? Conservatives? Give your comment a little more thought.
While I agree that the government is leftist right now, and so some of the left’s goals will be carried out by the government, it’s clear the private sector leftists are capable of gunning people down. We just saw one do it.
No. But with the swearing-in by the Chief Justice Roberts of the non-”Natural Born” usurper Obama — the Rule if Law is comatose.
“Some here on the right are still super invested in Hussein,”
Right! I was exchanging with Andy Jackson yesterday who was an Obamachev apologist and, he says, he’s a conservative.
How can that be? What form of contorted, brain cramping, reasoning allows a conservative to support ObaMugabe?
I just figured he’s nuts.
You just don't get it do you? Whatever your or my opinion about equivalences is, we will not be the only ones sitting as judge and jury, if street justice becomes the norm.
I don't think they are equivalent. So what? The person that gunned those recruiters down, did.
Street justice is NEVER the answer.
I’m going to step out and say that this incident was perpetrated by a Muslim prison convert. At the very least, it is related to Islam and was done in the name of “Allah”.
What I’m saying is, (in general) you won’t see individual leftists gun people down. The leftist/statist gains power for the very reason of using that government power to exterminate their ideological opponents. This is a deep, essential part of their ideology.
I think, though, that if you try to compare US servicemen to abortionists the "moral equivalence" falls apart in a hurry.
Do you think that justifies street justice? If you do, just be prepared to see someone you love judged and found wanting. Once street justice becomes the norm, all bets are off.
I see Andrew Sullivan is stealing comments from FreeRepublic.com again. But, you have to excerpt his comments. How’s that for being fair.
That is a really excellent point, FRiend.
Please read this post. Also know that I don’t think your post was worded quite as objectionably as the other poster’s was, so consider it toned down in accordance with your polite disagreement.
Tiller was unsavory. Roeder is, as far as I’m concerned, little if any better.
That said...after his behavior in the last presidential campaign, Andrew Sullivan is really not somebody I care to hear lectures from on civility in politics.
I'm not trying to be picky BUT AK is Alaska AR is Arkansas. Someone may not understand what you are talking about unless there has been a recruiter drive-by shooting in Alaska too.
We used to be. Now we're a nation of "feelings".
Those in charge can justify anything they do simply by saying "This is best for the country" or, "We need to do this to protect or help..."
The Federal Government no longer respects State Laws or sovereignty. Individual rights are ignored because of an order from above to sacrifice for the good of the collective. The Constitution may as well no longer exist in a nation where the President can make law and policy through executive order, while no one with authority stands to question it.
I am absolutely horrified at what this nation has become.
The murder yesterday and the murder today at the recruitment center should make every American tremble with fear in that it is only a matter of time before we have lost all respect for the law, for human rights, and for the sanctity of life.
We have lost our soul when we can see fit to justify cold, calculated murder.
