America’s Own Terrorists

They are at it again, but apparently only CNN thinks you should care: in Austin, Texas Bomb found at women’s clinic.

It was a real device, not a fake, and it had to be detonated in place after an Interstate was shut down and several buildings were evacuated.

Everyone else found space for the story about someone named “Eve” crashing a Maserati and getting arrested, but not for the story of our own, all-American, Christianist terrorists latest assault on innocent people. The Christianists will all line up to say: “We condemn the violence, but we can understand why people might feel this way…please donate more money to our sacred cause.”

They really believe in the “sanctity of life.”

Yup. What is more important? Bomb at a women’s clinic or a Maserati crashing? I guess our media wants to make sure we get the more “important” news. CNN must be one of those trouble makers that don’t follow the written path. Kudos to CNN.

they must have a local outlet in Austin, because it’s marked are their original reporting. You have to wonder how many of these incidents never make the “news.”

Attempted murder… that’s the only way to look at it. Real, live human beings, the sort of human beings who no one disputes are alive, are targeted for obliteration by… murderers. Again, I can’t find any other word for them.

As I’ve doubtless said before, my first contract job, nearly 20 years ago, was for the local Planned Parenthood, creating their first political mailing list database. There were often very loud, bloody-poster-waving protesters around the site, but the most direct action taken against that clinic in my day was the use of a stink bomb. Ironically, the stink bomb, though it closed the clinic for a few hours, did not prevent any abortions, because none were scheduled at the time. They rarely are: Planned Parenthood is primarily a women’s health clinic for indigent women. By distributing contraceptives and performing prenatal checkups, Planned Parenthood prevents far more abortions than it performs.

Things have changed since the old days. Murder is no longer something the ironically named “pro-life” extremists shy away from. I am not surprised by the attack, and I am relieved no one was hurt… this time.

I was doing a support call for a plumbing company in a town near San Diego and things were on the verge of getting really ugly. The office was in the same building as a women’s health clinic and there were all kinds of pickets outside blocking the doors. Also outside were two dozen plumbers waiting for their paychecks.

At one point I mentioned to one of the people blocking the doors that I had to get in to solve a computer problem, and one of the plumbers heard me. The plumbers cleared a path to the door without being polite about it.

The real stupidity was that the clinic was operated by a Catholic charity for Hispanic women among the migrant laborers in the North County. The people in charge couldn’t get through to the mob that they didn’t do abortions, or even provide contraceptives, because they were a Catholic organization.

While I was inside undoing what a new clerk had done, and getting the payroll printed, the sheriff’s deputies finally arrived to restore some order. I left to avoid the problem that was about to erupt between the deputies and the plumbers.

With the three murders in Pensacola, I don’t look kindly on these people. For Randall Terry to show up in support of maintaining Terri Schaivo as a lab experiment, did not help the Schindlers in my eyes, he is one of the few people on the planet who deserve to be held at Guantanamo.

Guantanamo, hell, he deserves to be sent to Angola State Penitentiary, right up the road from me here in Redneckistan, LA.

And released into the general population after they reveal that he hates women and murders (or assists in the conspiracy to commit murders) doctors who distribute birth control and try to help children by sparing them birth defects.

It’s a weird hierarchy at Angola — the child-molesters, wife-beaters & rapists are the first ones gang-raped/killed. A Randall Terry would be kept around longer, as the little bitch that he truly is (and probably secretly craves to be), to be slapped-around and loaned-out to his owner’s friends at will. It’s probably his secret sexual fetish, anyway, the misogynistic nematode. Oh, sure, he’d try to get put into the special population with the child-molesting priests, who get special treatment (WHYYYY, I have no fucking idea), but I don’t think that he’d get that many favors, unless he fellates the corrupt and faux-christian overseer/warden, a scumbag thief his damned self.

You don’t seem to like Randall, Annti. I wouldn’t degrade a regular prison by forcing honest criminals to dealt with the corrupt chunk of garbage.

Speaking of Catholics… I used to live this || far from the border with Mexico. Some of our “clients” for this project were poor Catholic [no surprise there] Mexican and Mexican-American women whose husbands were vehemently opposed to both birth control and abortion [illegality notwithstanding].

Then I moved to Pensacola.

8 Bryan { 04.27.07 at 12:42 am }

I moved from San Diego back to this tiny town next to Fort Walton. Politically I went form being represented by Duke Cunningham to Joe Scarborough, what a thrill. These people need to be stop, but I see no indication that this administration has any interest in doing that.

9 hipparchia { 04.27.07 at 12:53 am }

duke cunningham! yikes!

ok, now i don’t feel sorry for myself any longer.

10 Bryan { 04.27.07 at 9:46 am }

Well, Joe is a real piece of work. Most people have forgotten he supported the Serbs in the Balkan Civil Wars. Duke was just arrogant and greedy.

Currently we have Jefferson Miller who awakes and waits every day to have someone tell him what to think.

11 Anntichrist S. Coulter { 04.27.07 at 9:52 pm }

Bryan, don’t worry about the guys on Death Row — we’ve got 2 fresh new serial killers who are about on Randall Terry’s level, trust me.

12 Bryan { 04.27.07 at 11:50 pm }

He’s a serial killer once removed that even the Christianists can’t abide anymore.
