Republicans are fine with Planned Parenthood murders

On June 17th of this year an angry young man named Dylan Roof walked into a Charleston church and shot ten people. Nine of them died. Five months after that horrible day an angry old man named Robert Dear walked into a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic and shot twelve people. Three of them died.

Now how did America’s presidential candidates react to the two tragedies? What did they say about the murders? Were they equally saddened by both of the shootings – one in a church, and the other in a clinic?

No. They were not. In fact the Republican candidates seemed to be perfectly fine with yesterday’s tragedy (maybe even happy about it). While the first shooting clearly broke their hearts, the second one didn’t bother them at all. It’s very strange behavior from a bunch of narcissists who routinely tweet about what they’re eating for lunch to remain completely silent about such terrible news. A policeman was shot dead outside the clinic, which would normally be a perfect opportunity for one of them to do some grandstanding about the death penalty, but they still didn’t give a damn. It’s stunning.

First, for some contrast, let’s look at the Democrats. This is what Hillary Clinton had to say about the Charleston shooting:

One thought Republicans are fine with Planned Parenthood murders

    toma,

    I can’t believe you waded through all that Republican dreck, right-wing twitter feeds are even worse as they hail Dear as a Hero. Nonetheless, you are absolutely correct Republicans whole-hearted support the attack on PP. If the Police Officer had not been killed and it was *just* another loose woman at PP amongst the 3 dead, they would be tweeting out their joy at taking the fight to the abortionists.
