This is all I want to say about the Colorado Planned Parenthood shooting:
First of all, I do not condone mass shootings. I feel like I shouldn’t have to say that, but I just want to make it clear.
As per the issue of abortion. On principle, I don’t like it, but I accept it as an ugly reality of modern day life. A necessary evil. The least worst option available at that moment. Consequently, I am pro-choice, but from a mainly libertarian perspective. I just don’t like the idea of the government having the power to make that choice on another person’s behalf. Done.
Here is what I noticed in the media coverage of the PP shooting compared to other recent events.
Following the PP shooting, Democrat politicians and liberal pundits took to the airwaves and internet to #StandWithPP and condemn the “violent rhetoric” of the GOP that (supposedly) caused the shooting. The undercover PP videos were roundly condemned again. The left mounted a national media defense of Planned Parenthood and an attack on gun rights.
Following the Charlie Hebdo massacre and Texas “Draw Muhammad” shooting Democrat politicians and liberal pundits took to the airwaves and internet to bend over backwards to explain how there are limits to the 1st Amendment, freedom of speech doesn’t mean we should go around insulting Islam just because we can, we shouldn’t “punch down” by criticizing Islam, and how #JeSuisCharlie is defending white privilege. The left mounted a national media
attack waffling on the freedom of speech.
Watching all of this has left me with one conclusion.
If the right to kill unborn children is more important to you and a more defensible position to you than the freedom of speech, there is something fundamentally wrong with your political ideology and perhaps your soul.
