Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

AP: Pro-lifers more lethal than jihadis

Wow.  Just…wow.  From Newsbusters:

Let me get this straight: On September 11, 2001, terrorists brutally exterminated nearly 3,000 Americans, obliterated the landscape of lower Manhattan, and pummeled the headquarters of the United States’s national defense. And since that same date nearly six-and-a-half years ago, pro-lifers have committed a grand total of zero murders, attempted murders, and bombings directed at abortion workers and clinics across the United States and Canada.

So the Associated Press implies that the bigger threat of terrorism to this country comes from … pro-lifers? Here’s how the AP tells it:

When it comes to fears about a terrorist attack, people in the U.S. usually focus on Osama bin Laden and foreign-based radical groups. Yet researchers say domestic extremists who commit violence in the name of their cause — abortion or the environment, for example — account for most of the damage from such incidents in this country.

The AP’s reporting is simply a smear. Violent episodes against abortion clinics have been quite rare, especially in the last decade. Even the stats from National Abortion Federation (pdf) reveal this.

In his book On Message, Life Dynamics’ Mark Crutcher sums it up best: “The image of abortion workers having to dodge a hail of automatic weapon fire just to get from their car to the clinic door is utter nonsense.” Crutcher notes that in the years 1993 and 1994, the worst period of violence in pro-life history in which five abortionists and clinic workers were killed, more farmers and twice as many hairdressers were murdered on the job. (The total number of murders that have occurred since Roe v. Wade passed in 1973 is seven.)

Nope…no liberal media bias!

  1. Yikes! Stop the insanity!! See, this is what happens when they loosely define things, and don’t actually use statistics and truth to back up what they say. It’s using fear to smear. Thanks for pointing out this ludicrous article.

  4. Well, I’m a libertarian on this issue. But this is hyperbole once again by the drive-by media. American Christians are not Jihadis.

  5. Oh the greatest proof that American Christians are nothing like Muslims is that the lefties feel free to utterly vilify them and Christ. Seems not to be the case with Muslims, because they are actually AFRAID of Muslim violence. Why don’t they fear Christian violence?

  6. “Why don’t they fear Christian violence?”

    For the same reason that we don’t fear Global Warming Hoax – you can’t be afraid of what you know doesn’t exist.

  7. This is typical logic for liberals: When the group toward which you have sympathy (Muslim terrorists) is being attacked, pretend that said group is no better or worse than any other. Then attack the opposing side for his/her “hypocrisy.”
