Fairly Predictable; The Asshole of Colorado Springs Edition

The man who police say staged a deadly shooting attack on a Planned Parenthood clinic that offers abortion services said "no more baby parts" after his arrest, a law enforcement official said Saturday.

The official could not elaborate about the comment by the 57-year-old suspect, [Some Asshole]. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation.
And he's a "disaffected loner", or some shit like that. But because he's a, wait for it, a Christian white male, nope, no terrorism here.

I'm waiting for any evidence that this guy was a "Christian." From what I've heard so far, he was just your garden-variety nutball.

Of course, I follow the 48-hour rule--we don't know anything for the first couple of days until the facts come out, and during that time, I don't trust anything the Mushroom Media tells me.

Time will tell.

You can wait all you want, but he clearly is a terrorist under the current definition (performing an act (of terror) in an attempt to gain a political objective). So why then won't the media use that term?

The Republican Party and conservative media have been working since timer immemorial to equate Black with Criminal. And have effectively classified Terrorism as something only Muslims do. Thus whenever a white male engages in a crime of mass violence, there has to be an outside corrupting influence; Video Games and Violent Movies (i.e. Hollywood Jews), rap lyrics (criminal black culture), schooling (liberal influence) and finally mental illness. Thus the white man is never actually guilty but the victim.

However, that doesn't explain the medias role which is sickening and shocking. The media was more than willing to let Adam Kinzinger Congressman from Illinois proclaim the Planned Parenthood director needs to apologize while the hostage situation was still unfolding, and then played an entire day of 'oh my goodness whatever could this shooters motivation be', while the conservative on-line media got their stories together and proclaimed this to be a bank robbery gone awry until such time as the media can safely drop the issue entirely.

...and now Ted Cruz is claiming the terrorist was transgendered. I don't want to live on this planet any more.

Actually, to defend Ted (Jesus, did I really just say that), he was simply pointing out that that story was out there too. He was deliberately being provocative, but he didn't actually claim the guy was transgendered. Off to wash my hands compulsively after posting those words.
