While there was an active shooting occurring in a Planned Parenthood clinic Friday, CNN brought a Republican congressman on to talk about it. Nobody is really shocked to hear a Republican bashing Planned Parenthood, but this guy did it DURING the active shooting that was still happening, and he blamed the fake Planned Parenthood “sting” videos pushed by Republicans last month. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) Was the idiot making these statements. “We saw these barbaric videos, and that was something that many of us have a legitimate concern about,” Kinzinger said.
Every time there is a mass shooting, Republicans run to blame it on “mental health” and scream not to politicize it. Where the hell was that today when Republicans everywhere were politicizing this, and blaming Planned Parenthood for the shooting simply because they offer abortion services?
The host asked Kinzinger if this shooter was definitely targeting Planned Parenthood then what does that say about the protections we should be offering their clinics and employees who work in them? Kinzinger ignored the question completely and said that he will demand an apology from Planned Parenthood for blaming “extremists” before we know for certain why the mass shooter was attacking the clinic. Clearly, according to Republicans, if you are a mass shooter, it is unfair to be labeled an extremist.
He then said just because people do not like what they saw in the (fake) videos, that doesn’t mean it is the right wing’s fault when people terrorize Planned Parenthood clinics. Actually, you freakin’ jerk, that is exactly what it means. Republican hate speech towards Planned Parenthood has been happening for decades, and it can be tied directly to events like this, and other ones, where clinics and their employees have been terrorized and killed.
