Bob Small sent me a note regarding comments made by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee this morning (Nov. 29) on CNN’s “State of the Union” concerning Friday’s shootings at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
“What he did is domestic terrorism, and what he did is absolutely abominable, especially to us in the pro-life movement, because there’s nothing about any of us that would condone or in any way look the other way on something like this,” Huckabee said.
Megadittos Governor. No decent person can defend this sickness.
We are still not quite willing to give the incident the T label until more information comes out as we may find that the shooter, 57-year-old Richard Dear, might fall into the “I hear voices” category rather than someone with a religious or political agenda.
It has been learned to the dismay of some that Dear, an ugly bearded man, identified himself as a woman on his voter registration form and did not affiliate with a political party.
He also has a long history of violence and petty violations.
It seems wiser to have the taxonomy of evil categorize “terrorism” as something requiring more planning than whim else just about every act of violence could be labeled such.
Regardless, Dear is scum and as he was taken alive we will soon learn his motives and the amount of thought he put into the attack.
And here’s a quite inappropriate but rather important question for those of us concerned about the integrity of the voting process to ask: Was Dear, who identified himself as a female voter, allowed to vote?
