No matter where you stand on the abortion issue, yesterday's murder of Dr. George Tiller in church in Wichita, Kansas had no justification. The killer was a radical idealogue who operated under his own volition.
Unless you're one of the brain-dead morons who read The Huffington Post, The Daily Kos or any of the other ultra left-wing bash sites.
Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic, among other wacko liberal bloggers, have tried to lay Tiller's murder at the feet of one Bill O'Reilly and the rest of the anti-abortion movement.
They couldn't be more wrong.
First of all, as one who watches Bill O'Reilly regularly, not once has O'Reilly ever advocated vigilante retribution against Dr. Tiller. He has reported the facts about Tiller. That left-wing liberal anti-life abortionists refuse to listen to facts is indicative of how blind they choose to be when it comes to the facts. So I'm going to say this once and I'm going to say it in small words so the ultra-left wackos who read my columns looking for a reason to make up lies about me and post it as mindless drivel in the response area will understand:
Bill O'Reilly did not incite the murder of Dr. Tillman. He is not responsible and to say that he is is typical left-wing rhetoric looking for ammunition to bolster their case to pass the (un)Fairness Doctrine.
O'Reilly himself just said on TV, "You can't stop me from commenting on [Tiller]." So long as the First Amendment stands, O'Reilly and I have the right to report from our sides of the street.
Personally, I did not like what Tiller did. I believe it made him a cold-blooded murder and he should have been in jail for it.
But under no circumstances would I support the idea of killing Tiller.
A friend and I were discussing the Tiller case and he told me about something a friend of his said to him in response to the killing. My friend's friend said, "I was hoping that we would come to the place in society where we could disagree on something without feeling the need to kill each other for it."
