Scott Roeder: "I know there are many other similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal.
By "similar events," Scott Roeder, the murderer of Dr. George Tiller, means more murders
. Which, having called the AP with this the day after Tiller's funeral:
When asked by the AP what he meant and if he was referring to another shooting, he refused to elaborate further.
This man is not a lone nut. This is an Eric Rudolph
or Paul Hill
. He's a nut with accomplices and colleagues, who intends to be a martyr. If he expected to be found not guilty, that's hardly what one would do the day after the funeral of the man he killed
. No, he thinks of himself as an example, or the first of many, and is probably also hoping to embolden others.Here it is.
A real, clearly-stated threat of domestic terrorism.
A man who is implying that he knows of others planning the same thing. Words like "conspiracy" should be occurring to the FBI right now
. Are they? Are they interrogating him? Is DHS getting involved? Are right-wingers demanding the Jack Bauer treatment on this man, given that this is
a ticking time-bomb scenario? (or is this the terrorist event Cheney has been hoping for to vindicate him?)
So let me ask this too: let's say this repulsive little assassin were not a fat, bald white man in his fifties, but rather something a bit darker and not Christian. Would there be any hesitation in charging him with terrorism? Or getting the information about the planned assassinations out of him? Would right-wingers have even considered openly defending him?
Actually, I suspect that if Al-Qaeda expressed wishes to bomb abortion clinics, Operation Rescue and the whole right wing would gleefully collaborate with them.
