Carly Fiorina Has Blood On Her Hands, And The Colorado Shooter’s Words Prove It

Carly Fiorina is an accomplice to murder and domestic terrorism. Yes, you read that right, and I will not soften or retract it. Not now, and not ever.

Recall that at the second GOP debate, Fiorina, whom I have called the biggest political liar since Richard Nixon (I will never retract that assertion, either) said that she had personally seen a video taken in a Planned Parenthood clinic which showed:

“I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ “

No such video exists. Neither Fiorina or her campaign could ever produce such a video. Again, because it doesn’t exist anywhere but in her fevered, self-promoting imagination.

The State vs. Robert Lewis Dear

But the man who killed three in Colorado Springs as part of a domestic terrorist attack on a Planned Parenthood facility told authorities when he was taken into custody:

“No more baby parts.”

Authorities say Dear was ranting against Planned Parenthood, and no doubt referring to the bogus videos released by the so-called Center for Medical Progress, a group which has ties to other domestic terrorist groups which have bombed and set fire to women’s health clinics across they country when they aren’t busy murdering doctors who perform a procedure protected by the U.S. Constitution.

Others With Crimson-Stained Hands

Fiorina is far from the only guilty party when it comes to the type of rhetoric which feeds the deeply simmering hate and paranoia which permeates much of the anti-choice movement in this country. All of the 2016 GOP candidates have said equally inflammatory things about a woman’s right to choose and about Planned Parenthood. Congress, under the control of the Republicans, even held hearings so they could attempt to spread their lies about the organization.

A “Crime Against Women”

U.S Attorney General Loretta Lynch called the Colorado attack a “crime against women,” but it is much more than that. It is a crime against civilized society as we have established it under our system of government. It is terrorism, plain and simple, and those who spewed out the vile lies which in part motivated Robert Dear are also culpable for his crimes.

In the days after the horrific attacks in Paris by ISIS, Republicans said the President should declare war on ISIS and put combat troops into the conflict as a response.

But where are they now that an act of domestic terrorism has been committed on American soil? They are disgustingly silent, as if Robert Dear never even existed.

And to each of them, I offer this indictment: There is blood on your hands, and all the soap and washing in the world can never remove it. Guilty. Each and every one of you is guilty.

ISIS is the biggest threat we face? No. The biggest threat we face lies within, and many of them dare to call themselves patriots. But they are nothing more than cowards and fear mongers. And they too will have their day of reckoning.
